If you’re weary of running around and want a speedier method to navigate about the map, getting a horse can be a smart choice. We’ll go over how to get a horse for yourself and how to care for it in V Rising in this article.
Location of the horse
Horses are usually seen at Dunley Farmlands, frequently within stables in V Rising. Dunley Farmlands is a hazardous place, therefore we suggest waiting until you’ve reached level 30 before attempting to get a horse there.
If you come across an empty stable, it’s likely that the horses have already been brought inside by other players on the server. That, or the horses haven’t yet produced. All you have to do now is return at a later time to discover the stable filled once again.
If you want to discover a horse as soon as possible without having to wait for their spawn time, you’ll need to broaden your search.
You must first view your map and hover over farms to check whether horses are listed among the resources available at that site (denoted by a horseshoe icon on the map). Wild horses may be seen at a variety of stables across the region.
When you find an unclaimed horse, approach it and saddle it to claim it as your own. Then just return to your starting point.
How to control your horse?
Horses have the same fundamental movement controls as humans. Making rapid turns, however, may take some getting accustomed to owing to their quicker mobility. As a result, keep it in mind while attempting evasive maneuvers in a tiny cramped environment.
To ride or dismount your horse, hold the F key near the horse and hit the Q key if you’re already on the horse. You may also make your horse gallop faster by using the Spacebar key.
You may take advantage of horses by hitting adversaries while riding. To assault the adversaries below, just left-click while riding your horse.
There are a few factors to consider while looking for the right horse for your playstyle. Horses has three unique characteristics:
- Turning Speed: determines how quickly the horse can turn on the spot
- Acceleration: determines how quickly the horse can reach its Max Speed
- Max Speed: determines the maximum speed of the horse while galloping
Horse stats are randomized, therefore individual horses will have different stats when they hatch. As a result, you should go on each horse and verify their numbers before taking the best one home.
How to keep your horse alive?
Now that you have your horse, you must also care for it. To keep alive, horses simply need water.
To keep your horse hydrated, you must provide water on a regular basis. You may double-check your horse’s water levels by looking at his inventory. It’s important to bear in mind that one water canteen may keep your horse hydrated for many hours.
It’s easy to replenish the horse’s water supply. While standing near the horse, approach him and access your inventory. On the right-hand side of the inventory, there will be a 13 grid if you look closely. The water-filled canteens may be placed here.
You’ll need a handful of empty waterskins to acquire water canteens. The Tannery, which is unlocked after beating Keely in the game, may be used to make these waterskins with Plant Fiber and Leather. All you have to do now is fill the waterskins at a water source and you’ll have some water canteens.
It’s also vital to remember that since horses can’t fight back, they may be taken by other players or killed by foes. As a result, it’s best to keep your horse in a secure location and never leave it near a battlefield, or you’ll have to get a new one.
