Hello StarFam! One of the most highly requested Star Stable horses of all time has been the Curly horse - and guess what, here it is!
Greetings, curly one!
The Curly is a very special type of horse. Not only is it a very pretty equine, but it is widely famous for its fur, which gave it its name. The fur of a Curly is - you guessed it - curly! The history of this horse goes as far back as the 1600’s and it’s believed that the Curly might have sprung from wild mustangs. Isn’t that cool? Meeting a horse with such a long history AND sporting a hairdo that would make any poodle jealous?
It’s sometimes said that the Curly horse is very allergy-friendly because of its curly coat. The Curly also often has an easy time learning new gaits, which is helpful to you guys - because our Curly knows the Curly Shuffle!
Do the Curly Shuffle!
★What's the new breed?
The allergy-friendly Curly!
★Where can I get it?
You’ll find one horse in Fort Pinta and two in Firgrove.
★How much does it cost?
850 Star Coins.
★What level do I have to be?
You can buy the Fort Pinta horse right off the bat, but you must have reached at least level 6 in order to get the other two.
★Do I need to crunch reputation?
Not at all!
★What colors can I choose from?
A cute chestnut, a cool dapple grey and a beautiful bay dun tobiano!
★Is there anything else I should know?
The Jorvegian Curly knows a special gait known as the Curly Shuffle! This is a gait that is quite similar to the Icelandic horse’s tölt.
In order to get going with your Curly Shuffle, make sure the horse is at a walk. Then hold down the SHIFT key while making the horse go faster and ta-daa - your horse is shuffling! Your Curly is not able to jump from the Curly Shuffle.
Who wouldn’t fall in love with this fluffy friend?
Now it’s going to be even easier to find your way to newly released horses because today we’re adding a new marker on your in-game map that will show you where the new horses are located! Just as with all other map markers, you can decide to turn it off in the map settings. You reach the map settings by opening your map and pressing the small button on the top left of the map!
Launching the Quick Shop!
Today all of our players on the Australian servers will get to take part in the Beta launch* of a brand new feature called the Quick Shop! This feature will be released on all other servers in a few weeks.
The Quick Shop is a brand new, one-stop shopping interface, which enables you to reach most items in the game to purchase for you or your horse. You can even try on multiple items at once (including items in your wardrobe) to see what your complete outfit would look like!
To reach the Quick Shop, click on the shopping cart icon next to the horseshoe menu. To all of you outside of the Australian servers - hold on, you’ll get to try this out soon! Even more details will soon follow.
*Beta launch is a part of the development process of software, where players who will later use the product get the chance to try it out before the actual release.
The Bonus Shop
A new item is available in the Moorland Bonus Shop to all of you who got Star Rider by one-time payment!
Coming NEXT WEEK!
Are you hyped for Halloween? We sure are! Be ready to ride out to Galloper’s Keep next Wednesday!
Have a lovely week!
