Trophies and New Features!

Published by at 10:51 am under News

First, let’s start with the new features:

DNA Strand Item: This is available only to new players with a seniority under 30 days and who are not still completing the tutorial. This 1 pass item completes training, rides, and competitions for one horse. Qualifications include:

  • For horses starting at 1 year and 6 months old
  • On horses with a genetic potential under 80% of the GP of the best same breed horse on the game
  • On horses that aren’t divine, special, wild or wanderers
  • On horses born after the detailed skill statistic display was introduced. [17/04]

Check boxes in sales: Instead of looking for a horse that has a certain BM item, you can look for horses that don’t have that item. I believe this feature can also be found in other places on the game, and not just the sales.

Layout on your horse’s page: Your horse’s skills/stars will be displayed under the energy and health box, instead of under the general information tab. This allows quicker access to important information

Operations in local time: Your selected time zone will be the main time for your completed actions, such as receiving or sending a private message. To change your time zone, go to Profile > My Account > click edit by the time zone.

The Trophies:

The trophies are introduced as a follow up to the Objectives; you cannot view the trophy page until you finish all 100 objectives. The original objective link, under the Profile button, will be replaced to bring you to the trophy page. You do not earn anything like you would with the objectives; it’s meant to be like a sticker book where you collect the trophies to show how well you’re doing on the game.

A pop up will appear to alert you that you’ve won a trophy.

When you earn a new trophy, a pop up will appear to alert you. In order to keep the trophy, you need to have all the components that got you that trophy. An example would be if you have a trophy for x amount of golden apple coats. If one retires, you will lose that trophy (however, that retired coat will be counted toward the retired golden apple coat trophy).

If you don’t meet the qualifications for one trophy, such as the UFO trophy or the manure trophy, only that first trophy will be shown (to catch 1 UFO or have 100 droppings). Once you earn the first trophy, the second trophy for that category will appear (for the droppings, the next trophy is for 500). In other words, once your earn one trophy in a certain category, the next will appear.

Some trophies take some time to validate, and since this just started, there is some trouble with certain horse breed trophies. For competition trophies, competitions that were previously entered/won won’t count; you’ll have to start over. Two that didn’t validate for me were the droppings trophy and the wild/special horse trophy. I sold one dropping for Howrse to update the number of droppings I have and took care of my wild/special horses which then gave me the trophies.

GAME PLAY TIP: With a new promotion like this, many players spend the first few days after the promotion is released to try to bump up their game/complete the promotion. This is a great opportunity to sell some horses for extra equus (there’s a higher demand), work on getting your EC to a higher ranking, and getting those competitions running.

    This is great :) Can I just point out you’ve said “Tophies” not “Trophies”? Sorry, just saying! :P
