I used my training on my wanders to do grail requirements and comps were used for my EC center. this promo was completed last week and I do comps just to bring in funds
gifts were okay, not ones that I need to use
but I did love that new black butterfly moth - looking forward to adding to my collection - so maybe a wander's coat would of been a nice gift touch

Meh. I did not enjoy as much as usual. Most.of the wanders I didn't care for and it felt unusually hard to progress. IDK of it was the site issues or what but I didn't get as many age points as usual and it was just difficult and unsatisfying. /Shrug

My only real complaint is that I don’t really understand why the wanderers were spread across old themes instead of having an entirely new batch. It felt haphazard and lazy to me, I just don’t get what they were going for. Prizes were fine, I finished without passes as usual. A very average event.

For those wondering why some coats were reused-the theme was "Community Wandering Horses.

The repeat horses were all existing Community Wanderers that visit outside the event. The new ones are to fill in the old sets that did not have Community Wandering Horse coats, as the earlier WH events (Historical, Greek Gods, Seven Seas and Butterfly) did not have Community horses.

It wasn't until the Environmental Wanderers that we first saw a Community horse, Wilderness, and that trend has continued since.

Let me start by sating I finished the contest several days ago. That said, I do not like this promo as it is very labor intensive for moderately decent prizes.

Enjoyed The Wondering Horses Game But Really Don't Care About Ascent Of Olympus

I was able to get all the Wandering horses except the last one because it would take entering 371 comps to achieve and there was just no time left after getting the others. It is a labor intensive promo but really not too hard to do. I don't mind that some of the horses are ones already in the game because that just means fewer new ones to buy! That being said, I really wish they would make it easier to search for specific wandering horses in the sales. I hate having to sift through pages and pages looking for one specific coat. I was able to find the Gregarious coat for sale but had to go through way too many pages. Seems like they could have check boxes to narrow the search field. All in all, though I did enjoy this contest. The artwork was nice and the free prizes were good. Thanks, Howrse!

The Wondering Horses was fine, easy to fallow, but it seemed pay to win if you wanted the new skin. other then that it was fun, and entertaining to play. default smiley (l)

how was that event pay to win? I've finished the event 6 days ago on server with the delay without any strategy nor spending passes. I even made few mistakes like donating AP to multihorn by an accident or forgeting to do comps and still I was done with the whole event 4 days before end.

As much as I enjoyed this event I have to say it was a bit time consuming and the rewards weren't tempting enough for me to grind on 2 servers simultaneously. But it's one of my fav events I gotta say.

I also finished but found it too labor intensive to be fun. The prizes were meh. Also I got a regular Wandering Horse during the promo and it became confusing as to which Wandering Horse was associated with the promo and which Wandering Horse was "just a Wandering Horse". So maybe in the future while doing this promo the game does NOT have regular Wandering Horses floating around.

It didn't make a difference for the promo which was an event Wanderer and which was a community Wanderer, they both counted towards the objectives. default smiley (y)

I don't mind the Wanderers. It's easy and while it can be time consuming, I was still able to finish early with no pass spending.

Curiosity question: Does anyone know why we've never seen a Wanderer's Spirit released for the "Birds" series?

Pretty boring. I didn't finish however because I don't like the "donating horses to Ow", I don't like that we have to do that to complete an event. Also didn't have time to enter enough comps. Overall default smiley (n)

The Bird coats were designed by players and most were then submitted as Golden Apple coats.

I don't like that it's so time consuming that's why I'd did not finish it. It's also nothing new compared to other events like the memory one which is pretty fun. I like ones based on skill.

Unfortunately this one fell flat for me, despite the fact I usually enjoy the wandering horse events. It felt really hard to progress in this one for some reason; it was too time consuming. despite my busy schedule, I'm usually able to participate in the events, but for this one I gave up. I got most of the horses, but some were just ridiculous. I didn't want to pay passes just to get aging points to age them thousands of times... I almost wish you could use regular aging points! Ehh, I don't know. This one just disappointed me sadly.
