September 12 , 2013 - Leading online game developer and publisher, Joymax, recently revealed a slew of new job-specific mounts and pets for their immensely popular MMORPGs,  Silkroad Online and  Silkroad-R.  These new mounts and pets offer players a larger variety of ways to show off their individuality.  Part of a larger update including new permanent avatars and job costumes, players can check out all the update’s details at

Starting September 10 th, players had the option to change their transport mount, based on which class they play – Hunters and Thieves each received their own designs!  A total of ten new mounts are now available, each with their own perks and unique designs.

The Donkey is an improved basic mount, which players can easily acquire; the color of the luggage will now depend on the trade and country of origin of the character.  Next is the Thoroughbred, fine horses bred near the Heavenly Mountains; the colors of their ornaments will now change based on the player’s choices.  The Ironclad Trade Horse is the first redesigned mount which is capable of carrying trade goods.  A player’s class and country choice will dictate the color of its bridle and saddle.  The Arabian Camel can also transport goods – this one hump variant is often seen in western China, and the luggage it carries will vary in appearance based on a player’s class.

Players looking for unusual mounts should try out the Fire Bull, bred for sturdiness in the Fire Mountains, it will also see new appearance changes based on a player’s country, as will the Giant Buffalo, whose origins in West Asia are still shrouded in mystery.  The menacing Dark Lizard, living in Chinese swamps, became huge under the influence of Hang-A and will see color variations based on a player’s class.

For those looking to haul more trade goods and over longer routes should check out the improved Five-Horned Rhinoceros; these gentle giants will have different colored horns based on a player’s class and origin.  Also updated are the two biggest mounts available in game: the White Elephant and the Behemoth will both see color variations based on a player’s class as well as additional decorations and details in general.
