    Hi,

    I can find the page for a Dread War Horse, but not for a Dread Mare. How many control slots does a Dread Mare take up?

    Thx

    There is only the dread warhorse for 3 slots and the nightmare for 2 slots. Don't get fooled by the normal horse that is black for 1 slot

    I'm not sure what you are saying... Are you saying that a Dread Mare doesn't exist or what?

    "Dread Mare" is just another name people use for a "Dread Warhorse"
    They resemble nightmares, visually, and nightmares are known as "Mares"

    Sorry for the dumb question, but how do you tell a nightmare from a Dread? By it's stats?

    If you have a Dread Warhorse, then once every 30(?) minutes you can say "trick" and it'll do a funky effect.
    Beyond that, I think you can only tell the difference with the stats. So it really is a case of "buyer beware" :(

    Yes by the hp and str is easy way. The nightmare max hp is 315 and a warhorse in the 300 range the owner should pay you to take it to free up their stable space. And if the owner says trick a warhorse makes a large smoke ring.

    That's what I thought...

    Here's the stats on this particular black:

    Based on these stats, she's "something more" than a Nightmare...

    Grats on the Dread Mare Startle!

    You've definitely got something a little more powerful than a night mare there :)

    Hopefully, Some day i'll get lucky enough to find a dread mare wandering the streets looking for a good owner. Cause i will probably never be able to afford one.

    Oh well, my Beetle, Hiryu, Bane, Bake, reg Mare, Drag, G Drag, and WW have held up just fine so far :thumbup:

    Thx Trunkz, she is a beauty - and she's almost fully trained. I "inherited" her...
