    I have several faction warhorses [TB/COM/SL/Minax] from switching between factions over the years.

    Since the old system is no longer relevant, wouldn't it be cool to be able to transfer them between players?

    Or a way to transfer them to other characters on the same account, maybe a hitching post function.

    Tis funny. I found a red faction war horse statue... dropped on the Luna bank floor, in December.

    Locked it down on the step of my Mini Mall (that sees loads of traffic)… hoping someone would claim it. No one has.

    I didnt even know they became statues... like ethereals. Wouldnt they be bonded, like any statue bond? NAMED... thus, they cant be owned by someone else... pasted, locking them down.

    Are you sure it isn't a 16th anniversary horse?

    I don't think he's talking about the reallllly old ones that are crazy rare. I think he's talking about regular minax, tb, Com, sl horses.

    Then its not a faction warhorse its a vvv horse, which can still be bought from the vvv NPC silver trader for 500silver points.


    Regarding the old faction warhorses, alot of people still have them, so wouldnt be worth that much. I have about 6-7-8 of them on difference chars.
    Cant be traded atm.

    I don't think they'd be that valuable. Most people that have pvped have at least 1 or 2 in stable. And want to hear a sad story? I saw an old style sl horse about 8 years ago that must've gone wild, I was approx 5 seconds from taming til it got guard whacked!

    Oh well. Trying to be helpful doesnt always work, I guess.

    STILL... if the named guy that owns it comes to me... I wouldnt keep it.

    I have no clue how the silver system works nor do I even enter Murdererland. :)

    I was talking about the TB/SL/COM/Minax warhorses.

    I don't think they would cost that much at all especially with the 16th anniversary horses out there. There are TONS of faction warhorses out there in stables. Anyone that pvp'd around this era.....or even not pvp'd knows this. At the end of factions all you had to do was basically exist to qualify to buy a warhorse.....and they weren't that much silver.

    Like I said in my original post...….even if they just make a way to transfer it between characters on the same account, I'd be happy with that.

    no.

    these are non transferable because they are now like challenge coins.
    if you where there you have one, if you weren't, you don't.

    no participation trophy here folks.
    just good old grinders who all know the pain of sitting watch over night on some sigils.

    plus they gave the masses 16th anv horses already to keep them quiet.

    I'd at least like the ability to move them to another character on the same account.

    theyd be very valueable. the vvv ones are kinda junk, because you have to maintain "battelreadiness" by buying spending vvv points on those courage potions.

    the old faction warhorses have over double the stats of the anniversary ones

    the rarity, plus usefulness would most likely fetch a price of 500m to 1bil pretty easily.

    id like it to change too, but many people would complain. would be another instance of something prepatch, no longer available to the average player giving those who have them a very large benefit, cosmetically and functionally.

    I was never one of the people that held sigils overnight. I was the one that killed the guy before they got the sigil to their base ;)

    Oh well, worst case scenario it looks like I'll continue to look pretty on my TB/SL/COM/Minax horses :D

    I have to correct you there.
    Old faction warhorses might be rare and all, but are not used for pvp in stead of VvV horses, since you cant res them without vet.
    I myself have a couple of old faction warhorses, and i never use them for pvp. pvp today is dismount kill pet, and then u are screwed coz u cant res a faction horse without vet..

    In regards to it only benefiting a few.....it would benefit about as many people interested in the high tides expansion...…….of no interest to me.

    faction horses arnt rare either, im not sure why people keep referring to them as such.
    i know myself id wager i have over 100 of them scattered over every shard.

    i know at least 3-4 old guild mates that have the same.

    ive also got a couple toons that have all 4 flavors in the stable.

    im sure most old pvp people have at least 1 sitting in the stable.

    simply making something that is unique in game transferable for the sole purpose of allowing a couple people to try to make some perceived billion gold sales cheapens the game and cheapens the memories that a lot of old faction people hold.

    I agree with Poo completely on this matter. If you played factions, you got the horse and kept it, it is your special horse along with the memories. Making them transferable would ruin that. I was in factions with Poo.

    Then, it would be nice to at least transfer them between characters on the same account. I don't really care about selling them as much as I care about utilizing them.

    I think giving the hitching post the option to transfer pets between characters on the same account would be cool for everyone, not just faction characters.

    Like lets say you only have one account, and you want to trade a pet from one char to the other, have an option where the hitching post can store a "transfer" pet that you can log onto another character on the same account to claim.
