Introduction

Dream horses (tier 9) are not available through the usual breeding method, and take a lot of time and effort to achieve. Tier 9 and Tier 10 horses are end-game mounts in BDO and all have unique abilities. There are 3 types of dream horse.








Pegasus (Arduanatt) Unicorn (Diné) Doom
icon
This dream horse is a winged horse that uses its large wings to glide from high places safely.
They do not “fly”, but can jump off cliffs and safely glide downwards at high speeds.
icon
This dream horse is a friendly mount that can buff targets to give them higher DP/Evasion and can also heal them.
The unicorn is a supportive mount that can prove useful in battle and is also the only horse unaffected by the Valencia Desert slow.
icon
This dream horse is the fastest dream horse thanks to its triple Instant Accel skill. It also has more powerful attacks and stronger horse skills which scale with your AP.
They use fire and explosions to destroy their enemies in battle.

How to obtain a Dream Horse

There are three ways to obtain a Dream Horse:

  1. Awakening a T8 Courser horse
  2. Buying the horse from the Horse Market. (costing approx 10-12 billion silver) – recommended option
  3. Very low RNG chance from a Shakatu’s Shiny Box (Life)

Obtaining a “Courser” horse

To begin awakening a Dream horse yourself, you will need a level 30 Tier 8 horse with the following skills:

  • Charge
  • Drift
  • Sprint
  • Instant Acceleration
  • Side Step
  • S: Instant Acceleration
  • S: Side Step

This is also known as a Courser horse and it will have a gold horse symbol in the top right corner of it’s icon.

For advanced tips on how to get a Tier 8 Courser, check out our Training guide which explains how to increase your chances of getting the skills you need using the “Forechop method”.

How to start Courser Training

Once you have a Tier 8 Couser at level 30, you can start “training” the horse. This involves feeding different materials into the horse, until you have enough to do an “awakening attempt”.

To start, put the horse in the stable at Stonetail Horse Ranch or Grana (Melabee NPC – West Stable). Make sure it doesn’t have any gear equipped or items in the inventory. The option “Courser Training” will be available at the bottom.

The training window will open. Here you can train your horse in 3 different areas: Skill Training, Elegance Training and Strength Training. You must consume certain materials to train the horse in the different types of training. Each time you use 1 material, you increase it’s training exp by 1%. You can get a maximum of 180% exp in a training area, which give you a 90% chance of getting that particular horse.

To awaken the horse, you will need a total of 200% training across all training areas.
Eg. 100% Skill, 50% Elegance, 50% Strength

Other ways to obtain T9 materials:

Awakening the horse

Once your horse has a total of 200% exp or higher in training, it can be awakened.

You will need one final material to awaken the horse:

iconKrogdalo’s Origin Stone

  • Use simple alchemy to combine:
    • iconSwaying Wind Fragment x25
      • (exchange Shiny Golden Seal – [Imperial Training] OR Horse Race Seal x2)
    • iconRumbling Earth Fragment x25
      • (exchange Shiny Golden Seal – [Imperial Training] x2 OR Horse Race Seal)

You can also gain a small amount of Swaying Wind Fragments and Rumbling Earth Fragments from the Peridot Leaf daily quests (video) and can exchange Peridot Leaf x15 for a Swaying Wind Fragment or Rumbling Earth Fragment at Old Wisdom Tree.

If the awakening fails, the training percentage (%) will be reduced back to 0% and you will need to train the horse again. You wil gain +1 Awakening failstack, which increases your chance of success on your next attempt.

The formular for working out your chance of success is (1% + (o.2% * failstacks)). This means that every failed attempt increases your chance by 0.2%.

You can also choose to use 100 Cron Stones when awakening. Using Cron Stones will reduce the training percentage to 100% instead if it fails.

If the awakening succeeds, the horse will become a Pegasus OR Unicorn OR Doom (the result is random but can be influenced by the materials you use to train it).

The horse will become a T9 with the same name. The horse will go back to level 1 and will have new stats and skills. It’s also important to note that T9 horses cannot breed. The base chance of success is only 1% so you are very lucky if it succeeds the first time.

Dream Horse Skills

The horse can learn any of the skills that a normal horse can learn (except Two Seater skill which can only be learned by Doom).

As well as the T8 horse skills, they can also learn special dream horse skills. Learning skills works exactly the same as with normal horses and is completely random, but dream horses tend to be “smarter” and have a higher chance of learning skills.

In order to get as many skills as possible on your Dream Horse, you should use the “Courser’s Spirit” method.

  • The Courser’s Spirit skill has a very high chance of being learned. You have a 100% chance of learning it at level 1, so you use a Mount Change Skill Coupon to swap it to another skill with a lower chance. Courser’s Spririt then has a very high chance of it being learned again.
  • Each time your horse levels, check it’s skills and if it has learned Courser’s Spirit again then you can swap it for another skill.

Dream Horse Stats

At level 1, all Dream Horses have the same base stats.

Arduanatt/Pegasus:

  • Speed: 137.5%
  • Accel: 137.5%
  • Turn: 122.5%
  • Brake: 122.5%
Diné/Unicorn:
  • Speed: 133%
  • Accel: 133%
  • Turn: 127%
  • Brake: 127%
Doom:
  • Speed: 130%
  • Accel: 130%
  • Turn: 139%
  • Brake: 139%

Every time the horse levels up, all four stats will increase by +0.1% to +1.3%. The amount it increases by is completely random every level, meaning that some horses may have better stats than others. Stats aren’t too important but having better stats does have slight benefits to the speed of the horse. The break stat is the most important, but Doom and Unicorn can usually obtain the maximum break bracket quite easily.
