Treasure Race!

Published by at 10:47 pm under News

Howrse launched its newest promotion, the Treasure Race! Similar to other promotions, you need to find an object to progress through the race. In this context, it’s a timer. You can acquire them from

  • logging in each day (4)
  • grooming a horse (2)
  • winning competitions (2)

These timers allow you to play the “race”. You will begin with 6 timers, allowing you to complete the race six different times. The goal is to find all 11 objects as quickly as possible. However, the objects may differ from time to time. I created a map below that circles all objects used in the game. Take some time to look at what objects are where to help improve your time.

  • You earn 95 points per item
  • If items are found quickly within 10 seconds, you earn 15 bonus points

In order to progress to the next puzzle, you must acquire all prizes by earning up to 42,000 points ad earning all 6 prizes. At that point you will be given a clue to progress to the next scene.

Clue: When you’re just about 1000 points away from the last prize, you will be told to look for a clue during the next round. It will be listed as the

  • Round 1: Bottom right hand corner by pots near the point counter (blue saddle cloth)
  • Scene 2: Bottom left corner, left of the extinguished torch (four hoof prints in the sand)

Upon completing the scene, you will receive a piece of Amira’s tack. Once all five pieces of tack are found, you will have enough to transform your horse into the new Legendary horse, Amira.

Scene 1 Tricky items:

  • Amphora: red, between Vase and Unlit fire torch (actually not circled in picture)
  • Tailsman: Behind yellow flap connected to the right red tapestry.

Scene 2 Tricky items:

  • Round glasses: in the middle of the top bar on left tent
  • Ankh and Pickaxe: in between two tents; left and right
  • Scarab: underneath the pink mat at the front center of the scene

Completion without passes:

Thanks to Adirata’s calculations, you can reach the fourth scene and win the first prize without using passes, if you use 8 timers daily (login, groom, and win comps). This is roughly half the amount of points needed to complete all six scenes (184k versus 330k). In order to complete all six scenes, you will need an additional 150 timers, which will cost around 50 passes.

    @Amy: I am not using passes to progress, so the fourth map will be up in a few days.

    @BumbleB: With only two timers for scene 3, I didn’t have a list of all the items to find. I updated the scene this morning.
