And the first Sand Horse goes to…

Published by at 12:21 pm under Divines/Specials,E-mail Newsletter,News

11:30 Finally, a Sand Horse has been released in the auctions for bidding. I’m unaware at what the starting bid was, but so far it’s up to 850 sand with 13 bids.

11:40 Suddenly rose up to 1,100 sand in ten minutes and through 9 bids. I’m shocked that one player has that many sand pieces! (I’m only at 40 xD)

11:56 Sixteen minutes later and one bid higher – 1,101

12:00 Only 4 minutes and it rose another 100! Same top bidder is in the lead.

12:01 to 12:04 – so many bids just got thrown in there! With seconds to spare, lucylastic jumped in, raising it to another 1,000! The winning bid? 2,521 sands.

This was the second sand horse sold. I believe it will be alternated between direct auctions and regular auctions. For the direct sale, it will cost only 500 sand. A friend of mind on Howrse actually got the third sand horse.

To those of you who don’t have a divine: Honestly, they aren’t that great. I was able to get a Falabella and I was thinking “Okay, cool. Now what?” Divines that I would like to own are the Xanthos, Croesus, or a Sliepnir. All the rest are just “tropheys” that you might end up selling.

About the Sand Horse, Gypse:

At 42 years of age and just a P. Stone, you receive the horse. This divine horse has a potential of 200 skills in each category, adding up to 1200.  What’s special about this divine is when it wakes up, it may fall back to just a small pile of sand. The owner must rebuild the horse in order to take care of him. The sand the owner receives may be traded for skills.

At this moment, the Gypse will not be able to be sold, but most likely will, after this promotion is over.

Three of the 116 have been released.

    This promotion ended sometime in the summer. The current promotion is posted on the home page of HH. Currently, it’s star rain.
