I was getting some animals out for our Gottacon board, pulled this out and just laffed. I showed Steve, what a grin that got.
We tried explaining how the horse part was broken for us now, and it was borderline futile. There were even some guys who had played LU but not in the last couple of months so had missed all the crazy spawns and loot giveaways, so we had a better time of explaining what the horse could do but I guess it was one of those you had to be there things.
So what could a horse do?
If you equipped a heart boost hat ( chef, blue turban or red hood, probably more ), backed the horse’s rear into a barrier, do the heart boost and jump off the horse, then there was a good chance you’d be on the other side of the barrier. The classic example is the Moonbase bubble, but there was a few others like in Crux and the Monastery. Even after the jetpacks were released, you still needed the horse to go oob on Moonbase.
A horse broke public chat, you couldn’t see it but you could still get team and private messages.
Wherever you equipped the horse was where your summons or projectiles would spawn if you moved away. This was an odd bug that allowed remote summoning or firecrackers.
There were 2 types of horses, the normal one that was in your model bag and the glitch horse that was in your gear. You could equip both horses at once for a horrid Sleipnir creature, which looked just nuts if you reared it up. The glitch horse could also be equipped with the jetpack for ludicrous flying action.
What other horsey fun did you have?
This was odd and not really sure how I did it. It was something like logging out at the rocket launcher just as I pressed Shift to launch, then I came back and could wander around Nexus with my rocket. Some people saw it and others just saw me in the rocket holding position. The hud also broke and I was stuck in this letterbox mode until I logged out eventually.
