BDO: Second Dream Horse – Kinda Back in the Saddle

In a very unexpected turn of events, I got my second Dream Horse awakening this weekend! I’m happy it happened, but I’d honestly be a lot more excited if it were the Pegasus and not a second Unicorn.

Unicorns aren’t terrible by any means, but it would have been nice to get a different horse this time around. At least it wasn’t Doom.

So I know I’ve been waffling about logging in BDO daily and feeding mats to my courser. This is mostly because, as I noted before, I have a severe lack of an Origin Stone, which is an item required to even attempt an awakening.

It doesn’t matter how many days you log in to buy awakening materials from loyalty tokens. No origin stone, no awakening.

I was very close to having all the materials needed to craft and Origin Stone – I was just shy 3. So when I saw that day 6 of login rewards this month gave Imperial Delivery Invoices (you can trade these for the materials), I was motivated to continue to log in this month.

However, just doing a quick glance of all the stashed rewards I haven’t claimed yet (I’m bad about that), I realized I had overlooked 10 of these invoices in my inventory already! So I pulled them out, did the trade, crafted a stone and went to try for the 20th time to awaken my courser.

Lo and behold, it happened!

Of course, once you’ve awakened a dream horse, you have to train it. So, I’ve been back in the saddle, leveling my horse for the past few days. So far, so good.

Believe it or not, I actually have a third courser that has been waiting in the wings all this time for a chance at awakening, too. And ironically, I just managed to pull an Origin Stone out of a chest from the Black Spirit’s Adventure last night.

So, the cycle begins again… until I’m out of Origin Stones. Maybe this one will be the Pegasus.
