New luck item: Companions Chest!

Companions Chest



Yes, you read correctly! The companions are back with our newest luck item, the Companions Chest.

There are 21 companions available in the chest that are separated into different rarity categories (Common, Rare, and Precious).

Note: Not all of the companions will be available, but more could be added over time.

This item will have its own dedicated page here:

When you win a companion, a green check-mark will appear on the companion’s image on the dedicated page. It will also be removed from the prize pool (similar to how the chests with prizes during contests have worked). Thus, making the chances for you to get the one you want higher~!

Tip: Once you have all the companions, it will reset to allow you to get them again.


Starting getting yours today, your horses will enjoy their company!

Companions Chest


Best Wishes,

The Howrse Team

I feel bad for the people who spent huge amounts on old, rare companions previously... especially on these small servers. However, I am incredibly happy to see companions back! I loved them previously on an old account, and will feel far more motivated to collect them all again.

I don't know why Howrse didn't use new icons for this re release. Then those who spent heaps on the previous collections could still retain their trophy and be motivated towards a trophy for the current companions.. Quite apart from the fact that it would no doubt be a better moneyspinner for Howrsedefault smiley (lol)

Disappointed the bee isn't in it if I manage to buy the rest from sales the bee is the only one I will be missing, and I won't be alone in this.

Technically it is not missing.

On preprod we were told that the bee and ladybug will potentially be added later. The testers are asking if this is so, that both companions com back slightly altered. No information on this as the session closed down.

So in a nutshell both the bee and ladybug will be added. What form we do not know.

On one hand as a non pass buyer who saved up what little i could to buy companions in the sales I feel a little cheated (especially if they just keep on releasing the chest and devalue the items and companions, which they'll probably do to be honest)

On the other hand, it'll be great for those players who weren't around when the companions were, although I agree with Rommy, they should have changed the icons a little (even just adding a mark or icon would suffice) I worked hard for that trophy and I'm proud of how many I managed to get, I can't help but feel I wasted an effort collecting them

I'm a collector and Im very upset because I spent so much money over the years collecting companions for them to be reduced to not even a pass. I did get the camel though which I have been missing for over 7 years but I am very sad that I need to now try to get the Llama for the collection, despite only being one short this entire time. Also they are missing the ladybug, but they removed that one from the trophies because only the top 3 or so players had it.

I also think that the butterfly should have been in a higher category (I don't remember how often butterfly companions were available, but it was the hardest one to collect once companions were phased out)

Hopefully they keep the bee as missing, makes there still some value to that companion. I think they should have left out many more to keep their value

I'm not sure how I really feel about this.
Though my first thought was definitely about the missing bee.

I was and am still amused by the reintroduction of companions. Sure, I have a huge collection I spent lots on, and now my spares are fairly worthless BUT I focused my collection on the horses rather than the companions themselves and the spares I had weren't selling anyway.

One thing I am so so glad about is that this is just a re-release of the animal companions and not the divines, dragons and ghosts. But who knows what will return to the game in the future....

All in all it would have been nicer if they had changed the art or something, Like 'animal companions 2.0'

So let me get this straight.

You took the companions away, when they were easy to get for everyone and we could pick and choose one for each horse.

You then bring them back in yet another luck item, and if want a specific pet on a horse we have to keep paying passes until it lands on the right pet. And if we don't get it that weekend we have to wait until who knows when for another try?

What.

Why didn't you just bring them back they were before? Just go to the store and buy one with different prices. Leave it so some pets can't be bought and only won in events or a special item. And redo the art so the originals will still be special and valuable.

You can draw over 100 different divines. Surely you can draw another cat.

What is with Howrse and luck items.

Are they trying to make us all gamblers all something?

The amount of gambling mechanics on a supposedly family friendly game is disturbing.

I just got a Ostrich companion thru the egg decoration.. I dont think i will be continuing with this promo.. It gets so expensive as you go along, The price for that Ostrich was ridiculous.. default smiley (o)
I guess over time if alot of us miss these Divines {Yes this includes me} Im sure they will be offered back to us as the rest of them have.. ..

Panthera, you're totally right! I too find it disturbing with the gambling mechanics of the game. I'm not a gambler myself, but a few weeks ago I spent $130.00 in real money to try and win a divine from the titans challenge, and still no luck! I was so sure that $130.00 would get me the divine and still have plenty of passes left over, but nope. I know this isn't anything to do with the companions chest, but I get where you're coming from about the gambling mechanics of the game, and the luck items I swear are ridiculous sometimes. I felt so robbed that day. I'm just happy that new players now get a chance to obtain some of the companions!

It would have been nice to see the companions brought in with new designs. They've been gone for years, and all the horse breeds have had design changes in that time but oh well.

I'm very much in agreement with other players frustrated by having choice constantly replaced by 'luck'. The way the companions have been reintroduced really shows just how the focus of the game has changed over the years. I do worry for any younger players or older players that have worked hard and don't want to see it wasted being sucked into these schemes.

what i dont understand is when the divines left there was a promo where you could use your inventory companions to collect gifts literally ttrying to get people to use their companions now theyre just re- releasing them doesnt really seem to be a point may as well bring back the diamond apple

I'd agree with others that maybe there needed to be a whole new design for the companions. As Mesotoblar said, a 'companions 2.0' . Or take into account those players that already have some of the companions from previous. I would like to complete my set, but I don't want to buy many more with the chance of getting the lower ones I already have. But they arenot ticked off and removed from the prize pool in the chest, because I didn't receive them this time, I already had them. It would be good if they were ticked of and removed from the prize pool too.

I hope they bring back the HoG but with new creation to make the old ones still rare. That would be great default smiley *-)
