Black Desert Online: All the Pretty Little Horses

Yesterday was the day that I bred my first Tier 7 horse in BDO – as seen above!

I know this is nothing unusual as there’s lots of T7 horses out there now, but it’s special for me. The origins of these horses date back to 2016, where I bred this line up from T1, T2, and T3 horses I tamed from the wild.

I’ve been training a group of T6 horses over the past few weeks, and so far 1 of 3 breedings of fully leveled T6 horses has resulted in increasing to T7. That seems about accurate based on the Horse Calculator.

Not every horse I’ve bred has been all that pretty, though. My first round of T6 breeding gave me one of the “ketchup/mustard” horse coats – though thankfully a T6 female.

I did breed out a rather pretty light-colored horse with a funky mane who eventually trained in Two Seater – allowing two people to ride her. I’ve decided to keep her now that she’s done breeding, and pass her to one of my other leveling characters to use a their main mount for now.

I’m still living the wagon life, and have almost a full team of T6 horses that I’m training up right now. Hopefully I’ll see more T7 come out of this team as I move my way up towards (hopefully) T8s in the future. I’m not too worried about working on Dream horses right now, I’m more interested in seeing how far I can breed the line of horses that I started back all those years ago.

  1. Congrats!

    In case you don’t know, when you have a male and a female who both have no more breeding attempts left you can still get another shot at a higher tier: stables have a function called ‘horse exchange’. Give away one male and one female and get a new level 1 horse just as if you’d done another breeding attempt, the difference being that you don’t get to keep the two “parents”.

    I wouldn’t do this with a good tier 7 (‘good’ as in ‘has Sprint, Instant Accel and maybe a few other useful skills’), but if you aren’t dead set on keeping every horse you have this is a good way to raise your chances of getting to tier 8 eventually.

    For what it’s worth, I couldn’t have kept every horse I ever had even if I’d wanted to; all stables of all regions combined wouldn’t have had enough space for them. 😉

    1. Yeah, I’ve been doing that, as well as Imperial Exchange now and then, when my horses have no more breeding turns left. But I’m keeping the good ones for alts to ride for sure! That’s an excellent tip, and it’s not super obvious when looking at the system that it exists.
