T9 and T10 horses are the end-game of Black Desert Online’s training lifeskill. Accessing this content proves to be a big challenge for everyone, because you either need a bunch of luck, a ton of patience, or spend billions in order to buy them.

In return, however, they are beautiful and enrich their host with important skills that can make the game much easier for the average user. As a passionate trainer myself, I have to say that I couldn’t wait for something better than Tier 9 Horses to arrive! They are my absolute favorites already. 🤩

If you prefer to start at the very beginning of the story, jump here to read about the basics of training and Black Desert Online’s horses, which we have already published in an earlier guide.

1. All T9 Horses & Their Skills

The 3 kinds of T9s, Black Desert Online.

T9 (aka Dream Horses) horses in the Black Desert Online, are horses that have special abilities and are much more useful than their predecessors. We distinguish several varieties, each with special abilities, but they also have common abilities.

Arduanatt, Black Desert Online.

1. 1. Arduanatt (Pegasus): Its unique ability is that it can glide with its wings. You can have a total of 24 abilities, with the exception of the Two-Seater ability, you can possess all the T8 skills.

Its special skills:

Unicorn, Black Desert Online.

1. 2. Diné (Unicorn): His unique ability is to be fast, and out of all T9 horses, it’s the only one that doesn’t slow down when he reaches the great desert. You can have a total of 24 abilities, with the exception of Two-Seater ability, you can possess all the T8 skills.

Its special skills:

Doom Horse, Black Desert Online.

1. 3. Doom (Hellhorse): It is a fighting horse, plus it only has a 3rd sprint ability and this is the only T9 horse that can learn the Two-Seater skill.

Its special skills:

There’s also a unique kind: the Nightmare Arduanatt. But it’s only awarded to winners for separate worldwide events, so there are only a few copies of it in the game.

2. Base stats:

From level 1 to level 30 (min. and max.):

 Arduanatt:

Speed: 137.5% → 140.4 – 175.2
Accel.: 137.5% → 140.4 – 175.2
Turn: 122.5% → 125.4 – 160.2
Brake: 122.5% → 125.4 – 160.2

Diné:

Speed: 133% → 135.9 – 170.7
Accel.: 133% → 135.9 – 170.7
Turn: 127% → 129.9 – 164.7
Brake: 127% → 129.9 – 164.7

Doom:

Speed: 130% → 132.9 – 167.7
Accel.: 130% → 132.9 – 167.7
Turn: 139.8% → 142.7 – 177.5
Brake: 139.8% → 142.7 – 177.5

Please keep in mind that the above maximum speeds are just official numbers. If you want to strive for the best (real numbers existing in experience) speed values during your horse training, these are the following: ~157% in the case of Doom, ~160% in the case of Diné, and ~165% in the case of Arduanatt.

3. Obtaining a Dream Horse

There are three ways to obtain a Dream Horse:

  1. Awakening from a T8 Courser
  2. Obtaining from Shakatu’s Shiny Box (Life) (if you are the luckiest person on earth!)
  3. Buy it from the Horse Market. (roughly 8-12 billion silver, depending on the horse’s skill and gender)

4. Obtaining a T8 Courser

So what is a Courser? It’s a T8 horse that has learned the following skills:

and the golden horse head lights up in the information window.

Try to train a Courser yourself: You have to be very lucky to get a courser that way. Or am I just unlucky? If you have the opportunity, use Skill Changing Coupons to get your horse’s missing skills. You can get these from the Pearl Shop (F3), but sometimes we also get them from various events for free. If you aim to spend money on them, I suggesting waiting for special horse training bundles, that usually pack a lot of them for quite good value prices.

Buy it from the Horse Market: The price of these horses is around 600 million and 1 billion. This price depends on the horse’s skills, gender, and if they have any breeding count left.

If you want to buy a Courser from the Horse Market, but there isn’t any courser sitting in the Market, I suggest you set up the Horse Market notification (press ESC -> Settings-> General settings -> Alerts -> and turn on the Horse Market / Worker Exchange option). If the notification pops up at the top center of your screen, the horse will appear in the horse market exactly 10 minutes later.

So all you have to do is lie down on the Horse Market Refresh button 10 minutes later and buy it as soon as the horse appears.

Plus tip for the Horse Market: If you scroll down to the bottom of the horse’s skill list and see those T9 abilities (Strength, Elegance, and Skill) on the list, you must be dealing with a horse that has already been put into T9 materials. Of course, around the skill icons, you can also see what percentage of the ingredients are in it. We also included for you in the picture below(The horse in the picture has about 1 raw material). You can’t buy a T8 courser with Dream Failstacks from the Horse Market.

5. Steps to Awakening the T8

Before you get started, you need to know that – of course – the Tier 8 Courser will disappear, you will get the T9 instead. So it makes sense that the horse’s skills and the horse’s appearance on it are lost, and also make sure that there is no breed on it because if there is, it will be lost (T9 horses cannot breed anyway).

You also need to take the horse’s gear off before you start training, otherwise, you can’t start the process. The only thing that remains from the T8, is its name! If you try to awaken your horse with a Season Character and you succeed, don’t be afraid that you won’t be able to get on it, it’s because Season characters can’t use a T9 horse.

Step 1: Go to Stonetail Horse Ranch or Grána and check in your horse at the stable keeper (Gula at Stonetail Horse Ranch, and Melabee at Grána). Select Courser Training from the options. For a try you need 1 Krogdalo’s Origin Stone , have it as many times as you want to try.

Step 2: Get to 200% by using the horse awakening materials described below.

My 10 Failstack’s materials (spoiler) to show you how to fill the window with ingredients

The following materials are worth 1%:

Pegasus (Skill) Unicorn (Elegance) Doom (Strength)
Stonetail Fodder Spirit Pouch of Ferocious Beast Deep Blue Hoof
Combine 20×20 farming byproduct. At the Processing Window (L) and select Simple Cooking to combine them. Farming byproduct can be obtained by harvesting crops. 25 x Hunter’s Token 7 x Peridot Leaf
Khalk and Wale’s drop RNG drop from gathering
x10 Peridot Petal
Rainbow Gem Fruit Breezy Conch Seaweed Pure Forest Breath
x10 Imperial Delivery Seals RNG drop from fishing RNG drop from every mob
x10 Peridot Petal x10 Peridot Petal 10×10 combined Spirit Stone Fragments. At the Processing Window (L) select Simple Alchemy, and combine them.

All of these materials can also be obtained by opening Courser Training Reward Box , that can be exchanged for Golden Seal – [Imperial Training] . There are two daily quests from Shamhain at Stonetail Horse Ranch, which gives you one or two optional materials daily. The requirement is Professional 1 Training level for one material, and Master 1 Training level for two of them. Make sure to follow our BDO Training guide in order to learn how to level faster!

The following materials are worth 2%:

Pegasus (Skill) Unicorn (Elegance) Doom (Strength)
Fruit of Yianaros Mysterious Blue Conch Crimson Fire Flower

So we need to reach 200%, which can consist of (at least) two types of materials, or we can work with all three. In this case, during a successful awakening, we have roughly as many chances of the desired horse as we used from its ingredients during training.

Of course, if we want to maximalize our odds on just one horse, it will cost more. In this case, you will get to 100% normally, but 100-180% you will get half of the % progress. (The other 20% should be another horse type’s material!) So in order to do it the cheapest way, you have to use at least 2 types of materials, in 100%-100%.

From the list on the right (as you can see in the image above), simply select the items you like to use and then click Training. This will put the materials in.

Peridot Leaf is one of the easiest items to obtain, for example the Kamasylvia Main questline awards a ton of these. Also, there are a lot of daily quests that give you Peridot Leaf as a reward. We have collected the best 15 daily quests for you, but it’s not an extensive list:

  • [Repeat] A Tune for Spirit
  • [Repeat] Arnatte’s Melody
  • [Repeat] Bold Investment
  • [Repeat] Carrot Delivery
  • [Repeat] Defeat the Boss
  • [Repeat] Delights of the Lake
  • [Repeat] Eat. Drink. Fly.
  • [Repeat] Elixir of Relaxation
  • [Repeat] Even the Smallest of Life
  • [Repeat] Evidence of Someone
  • [Repeat] Full-Scale War
  • [Repeat] Good Old Friends
  • [Repeat] Intact Research Material
  • [Repeat] Master of Acting
  • [Repeat] Meet the Deadline

Step 3: [Optional] Use 100 Cron Stones . If you fail, these stones will protect half of your materials. Remember that you can also get Cron Stones by extracting costumes. It’s much cheaper than purchasing the Crons from the Blacksmith. It is my well-established habit to pre-order a Classic Outfit Box at the Central Market and extracting the crons from the costume it contains. The box’s price is currently 269 million Silver on the Central Market and gives 264 Crons for the whole set (this is the Dark Knight costume numbers). So it’s already half price than the Blacksmith, but of course will require patience!

If you only pack a few ingredients into it, which is not enough for one try, you can use the horse with confidence, the ingredients will be included on your next visit. Failstacks and “inserted” ingredients are also bounded to the horse, so they aren’t visible on another courser that you put into the stable.

Your chance:

As you can see in the picture above, the training window shows us the Increase Awakening Rate and the Current Success Rate. For the first time, your chance of successful enchantment is 1%.

After that, each time you fail, that number increases by 0.2%. Based on the data currently available to me, NOTHING else affects this number (training skill, p2w things, deaths of the horse, etc), it cannot be increased in any other way.

6. Horse Gear

Skeletal Horse Gear on Doom Horse, Black Desert Online

Of course, these horses can also be equipped with horse gear. The horse can be equipped with a basic armor set as well as Pearl Shop’s items. I wouldn’t go into the basic armor sets separately, you may have read about this in an earlier article. Anyway, these “outfits” which can be sold at the Pearl Shop (F3), not just boost the look of your horse, they will even give you a 10% bonus chance to learn a new skill as a set bonus, if you lvl up with your horse.

7. Train a Tier 9 horse with all skills

With each level, there is a chance that your horse will learn a new skill and at the same time increase its speed. Well, your speed will also perform within certain values, I mentioned this above. However, your training level affects this, so you can improve these numbers.

For example, my Master 1 level gives: “Increases the chance of gaining a higher minimum movement speed by 7.4% when your mount gains a level.” Your Training level also affects how much chance you have of learning a new ability when your horse hits a new level.

And now comes the P2W method that makes it easy to get that particular 24/24 horse. The bottom line is that when you use a Skill Changing Coupon and swap a horse’s ability called Courser’s Spirit for another, there’s a good chance at the next level (this is not a 100% chance, but the chance of acquiring a skill other than Courser Spirit is very low, in my personal experience, I’ve always got the Spirit back right away). gets it back, thus gaining another skill. And repeat this for as long as you want. Starting this around lvl 15 is worth it, but of course, it depends on how many abilities you wish to train.

8. Selling a Dream Horse on Horse Market

In the case of T9s, as in the case of their predecessors, the goods for sale are determined by their gender and the skills they possess. Male horses are between 8 and 10 billion, while female ones are between 10 and 12 billion.

You have to pay tax on every sale, which means that a certain amount (this is 35%) is deducted from the price of the horse in any case. However, this deduction can be improved by your training level:

  • Beginner Training level 1-10: 0%
  • Apprentice Training level 1-10: 1% – 1.9%
  • Skilled Training level 1-10: 2% – 2.9%
  • Professional Training level 1-10: 5% – 7.7%
  • Artisan Training level 1-10: 10% – 15%
  • Master Training level 1-30: 20% – 26%
  • Guru Training level 1-50: 30%

For example, if you want to sell a 25/25 Female Doom horse, and you have Master 1 Training Level, your tax will be only 15%. It’s a 12,095,399,680 base price, and a 10,280,750,000 price after taxes. Approximately 🙂.

9. My personal experiences

Training has been my favorite lifeskill in BDO for a very long time and I am currently the proud owner of 3 T9 horses! I’m also proud that I made them from their “Tier 8 age”, because I definitely admit that it feels much better to make it for yourself than to buy it from the Horse Market. It has its own charm!

The peggy was my very first T9 horse, he was 18 failstacks. My Unicorn came after him, she was already a harder nut, giving it at 26 FS. And finally, Doom succeeded, with just 14 failstacks 😱.

I’ll tell you honestly, I didn’t even hope for 14 failstacks, so that was undoubtedly the most surprising thing to me. But I know a lot of people who did it in 5 or fewer attempts… But I still feel lucky because all three times I got the one I wanted a horse for, even though I always used the ingredients into 2 types of horses. However, I also started the 4th horse because I want to try the T10, so I hope to leave Stonetail Ranch with a new pegasus this time.

My math for the price of each attempt:

First, let’s take only the first 2 tries. Assume that you manage to buy all the raw materials at the lowest price from the Central Market, and you use Cron Stones obtained by extracting costumes.

1st try: x100 + x100 + x1 + x100 = 232,000,000 + 230,000,000 + 6,250,000 + 100,000,000 = 568,250,000 Silver.
2nd try: x50 + x50 + x1 + x100 = 116,000,000 + 115,00,000 + 6,250,000 + 100,000,000 = 337,250,000 Silver.

So all further try will cost 337,250,000 Silver each.

It means that (at these prices!), about 24-35 failstacks results in as much expense as if we had bought the horse from the Horse Market. But of course, these are just illustrative numbers, which can change in many cases, and also keep in mind that we are using the cron price from extracting central market costumes (roughly 263 million for 263 crons).

10. The Tier 10 horses are introduced

The Tier 10 horses have also arrived in EU/NA! [Love at first sight!🥰] It has super abilities, looks beautiful, and is super rare! Spoiler-alert: It can float! It’s more than the gliding what the pegasus can do, and it’s only a stone’s throw away from flying!

Types of T10 horses:

Dreamy Arduanatt:

This horse can only be acquired during the T10 awakening process. It cannot be traded on the Horse Market. Unlike T9, these horses have no gender.

Dreamy Diné & Doom:

The Korean patch, which featured the Dreamy Arduanatt, also quickly announced that a T10 version of Diné and Doom would also be available. We just have to wait a little for them!

11. Obtaining a T10 step-by-step

Step 1: Having a male and female Arduanatt (both lvl 30).

Step 2: Go to Stonetail Horse Ranch, check in both Peggys at Stable Keeper Gula, and hand over a Mythical Censer at the training window.

 

Recipe for the Mythical Censer :

Manufacture them at the Processing Window (L).

These can be obtained from the following:

Old Moon Censer:

Manufacture them at the Processing Window (L).

The Old Moon Censer Mold can be purchased for 20 million from the Old Moon Shop, the other items can be purchased from Central Market. They can, of course, also be produced with heating.

Mythical Powder:

Grinding them at the Processing Window (L).

The last 3 from the list can be purchased from the Central Market. The Flowers of Oblivion can be obtained from Imperial Horse Delivery (the number of flowers received per tier: T1->1; T2->2; T3->3; T4->4; T5->5; T6->10; T7->15; T8->20 flowers.). Fern Root can be obtained as a reward from daily or weekly quests. These can be picked up from Wapra, at Stonetail Horse Ranch. The daily quest gives 1-5 Roots and the weekly gives 30 pieces.

Mythical Feather:

  • Exchanging Brilliant /Radiant Fairy Wings at Herawen at Kamasylve Temple.
    Brilliant Fairy Wings = 1x Dreamy Feather
    Radiant Fairy Wings = 3x Dreamy Feather
  • Random drop by gathering Lakiaro.
  • Just buy it from the Central Market.

Fire Horn:

It can be obtained through hunting, or just buy it from Market.

Powder of Flame:

It can be obtained through Nodes, by workers or mining. For example, these nodes give you Powder of Flame with workers: Imp Cave, Coastal Cave, Mediah Shore, Pujiya Canyon, Capotia, etc. Or just buy it from the Central Market.

Step 3: Here you need to enter the name of your T10 that you want to wear if the enchantment will be successful. Finally, hit that particular button!

If you failed, then:

The mats are consumed, but your peggys are returned. The chance of the enchantment is fixed at 3%, there is no way to increase it. Keep trying! Based on current data, there are two weeks of cooldown, so you can try every two weeks.

If you succeed, then:

You got the Dreamy Arduanatt, which has 6 starting abilities! The 2 pegasuses are disappearing.

12. Dreamy Arduanatt’s Base Skills

ICON SKILL KEYBOARD DESCRIPTION VALUE
S: Charge Q while Charging Horse can use Charge twice, consecutively 12,150,000
Courser’s Spirit Auto-activated when unmounted Horse regenerates its HP and Stamina when it’s parked 9,562,500
Double Jump SpaceBar while jumped Jump a second time in the air, must have Steak Leap & High Jump 13,162,500
? Mighty Leap E after Instant Accel It quickly jumps into the air and soars in the wind. Unknown
? Flight E or SpaceBar while flying After floating into the air with elegant movement, spend some time floating mid-air. Unknown
? Wings of Swiftness F during Wings of Freedom Arduanatt, dreaming of learning how to read the wind flow, can descend at high speed through the wind among the wings of freedom. Unknown

13. Leveling a Tier 10 horse

This is similar to leveling T9 horses. As I mentioned above, if you’re striving for perfection, it’s worth using Skill Changing Coupons even when leveling your horse.

The bottom line is that when you use a Skill Changing Coupon and swap a horse’s ability called Courser’s Spirit for another, there’s a good chance at the next level (not sure if it’s a 100% chance, but in my personal experience, I’ve always got it back right away). gets it back, thus gaining another skill.

And repeat this for as long as you want. Starting this around lvl 15 is worth it, but of course, it depends on how many abilities you wish to train.
