    Looks like a unicorn to me. Never seen one that was more powerful than a greater dragon though, even maxed out.

    Next time you see it, lore it...

    Looks like a dread horn. If I remember well it could also be the old graphic for unicorns

    Old unicorn graphic was a white hued horse.

    THAT is the Dread Horn. Looks like a screenshot off a freeshard in my opinion ....

    Unicorns are white and have horns too. Please share with us what makes you think that pic is from a freeshard. Please share with us what is on that pic thats is not on production shards in shim.

    The old unicorn graphic looked exactly like a horse, except it was pure white. Nothing like Dreadhorn.

    When I first saw this, I was like WTF--Dreadhorn doesn't normally hang out with Shimmering Effusion.

    Now that you post that pic I looked back at the ops pic and it does look like DH.

    Now to veer this another way...Look at what a feeshard allows. Can you same lame. Taming peerless. Like that really makes me want to play one. NOT.

    When it's a Unicorn I still wonder why it is said to be so strong against Shim Eff. Obviously it's not a matter of attack type/resistances. Maybe because it's a 'Fey' itself and work as some kind of Slayer? That would be cool. Unfortunately, I don't have a female Tamer for testing that but according to this theory it should work with a Ki-Rin as well. I'm curious about it.

    Several people in the past have edited their art files so that unicorns etc use old graphics, I remember reading about it. Could it be that someone has done something similar here? Edited the art files so that unicorns use the dreadhorn graphic?

    yeah, that's what I was thinking, also, Petra.... but then the OP, if observing, wouldn't see it, would they? I always thought that editing like that would only appear on the screen of the person that did it? or maybe I'm just confused again

    also.... dang, isn't that old unicorn pretty?

    true, the alteration would have to be on the OP's computer. If not, either his artfiles have somehow become screwed up or that's not an EA shard.

    This screen is from europa and you all are fallen in my joke XD

    I simply added the DH to the screen, if you look with attention you can see that everyone has the shadow but not the dh ;)

    I'd have suspected the changeling doggy pet, but if it's fighting and doing a good job, I'd have my doubts. Pity the OP didn't get a chance to lore it and give us a few more clues because that sure looks like dreadhorn ;)

    It's not funny at all. I hope the admins take care of it too. Misleading people on purpose is not cool at all.
