Lucky me, I just got a Grizzled Mare off M.I.G. a few days back. I dont think Ive ever seen 1 at play so far, perhaps due to the "dispel bug" Ive read about that bothers the earlier generation of mares. Still, for those who have and ridden one before, Ive a few queries Id like to seek counsel. I understand once u double-click on the statuette, a mare will instantly spring forth and be bonded to whom ever used it. From that moment on, does it function like a bonded horse per se? I mean, its not like an ethy where its invulnerable and reverts back into statue once dismounted. This mare can actually die and become an animal-soul following u around till a tamer comes along and rezz it. Is that correct? Also, is it credible to use the mare like a nightmare/dreadhorse kinda fighting machine or is it a "wimp"? If so, other than eye-candy, would anyone choose to ride a Grizzled Mare instead of a simple horsey ethy? Not considering account age. Insights, pse?
