At first glance, it may seem that Tales of Fantasy is just another MMORPG, a proverbial needle in a 3D haystack. But the distinct Mounted Combat System makes it so different.
Mounted Combat System allows players to ride astride a great beast as they gallop towards glory and adventure. With a vast array of mounts available, and each mount having special attribute bonuses and effects, it won't be long before you find yourself yelling“Hi-yo Silver, away!”
Below are some typical mounts’ information.
Since ancient times horses have been the primary source of transportation for simple folk and wandering warriors alike. In Tales of Fantasy, there is an extensive variety of horses for players to choose from - from common brown horses to the white steeds of legend. What’s more, these steeds (like the Clouder) even offer an additional +10 HP Recovery when they have a rider mounted on them!
Kirins and Lions
Kirins, being the beast of worship for the Bohren, are sure to bathe their riders in splendor and awe; while the Lions of Ashland add a definite measure of grandeur. These steeds are not simply fashion accessories though, they also contribute to each character’s resistance to the elements, with various breeds offering varying forms of protection (example: The Grove Kirin is resistant to lightning, yet weak against fire).
Tigers and Leopards
Tigers, with their lethal precision with fang and claw, offer superior overall bonuses to their rider’s HP (the Striped Tiger adds 150 HP to the rider’s current max HP, as well as granting Strength and Agility bonuses). When speed is the thing you need, hop on the lightning quick, lithe Leopard– other than the speed bonuses it offers, it also increases hit and evasion rates for the character riding it.
How to Obtain Mounts
Horses, Kirins and Lions are purchasable through Animal Tamers, but Tigers and Leopards are much rarer, and cannot be purchased– though rumor has it that these mounts will be available from Item Mall events in game.
