Lancers of Lir Update Guide


This is your guide to the Lancers of Lir update in Celtic Heroes that starts December 2016. I'll be showing you revamped areas, quests, chests, mounts, pets, fashion, and mobs along with maps and info about each part of the event.

This update falls roughly on the Celtic winter holiday of Yule, which falls between Samhain (Fall) and Ostara (Spring). This event features mounted combat, additional fishing spots, and a revamped Lir's Reach. It is not a true seasonal update, as the only seasonal aspect of this patch are chests. No new bosses or luxury items are being introduced.



Mounted Combat

Ride epic mounts across the wildlands and strike down your enemies with ferocious swiftness. You can use your equipped mainhand and offhand weapons while riding!

Talk to Remus the Mount Vendor in Farcrag Castles Bailey to learn more.
  • Information
    • Mounted combat includes new wolves and bears 
    • You can use your equipped main hand and offhand weapons while riding
    • Mounts are equipped in a new "Stables" section of the inventory
    • Wolves have a damage skill
    • Bears have a sanctuary-type damage shield skill
  • How to Purchase
    • Mounts are purchased by obtaining mount tokens from chests and the bounty board
    • You trade mount tokens to Remus the Mount Vendor to purchase a combat mount
    • There are 4 different colored tiers of mounts, ranging from 1 token to 4 to buy
  • How to Upgrade
    • Mounts are bred in the same way that pets are.
    • The top mount is level 6, just the same as pets
    • It takes the same amount of mount tokens as pets to breed mounts.

    • They have the same probability to drop from chests as pet tokens
  • I died. What happened to my mount?
    • When you die you become dismounted, and cannot use your mount
    • To summon your mount again, you can return to the castle bailey and talk to the NPC
    • To summon it away from the castle, you can use a Mount Whistle (from the plat store) to bring it back.
