Mount System

Postby SnowKing » Fri Sep 30, 2005 12:01 am

Can somebody please tell us about the mount system? Things like:

*Types of Mounts
*Do the mounts have names?
*Advantages/Disadvantages of mounting
*Any extra notes

Just things like these would be good. Thanks.

*Types of Mounts
tsuuma, tsuuma-armored, iwadori, iwadori-armored
tsuuma is the kangaroo, iwadori is the owl
I'm not sure what exactly the proper translation is.

*Do the mounts have names?
Don't think so.

*Advantages/Disadvantages of mounting
Superior movement, swing doesn't work. When mounted, mount-specific runes work and normal runes don't. Status changes.

*Any extra notes
Not all characters can ride, but plenty can. It's possible to mount, move, then change character all in one unit's turn.

If I'm correct, those kangaroos are the Gul-Horses that are native to the Toran area. Since Kooluk is south of Toran it's likely that there are Gul-Horses in that area as well.
I hope everything is going delicious.

Nah, The Tsunouma (Horned Horses) are not Gul-Horses. Gul-Horses are reptalian, while the Tsuouma are mamalian and look like kangaroos with horns.

The armored mounts give you better armor bonus while they don't add very much to your movement, while the unarmored mounts give you a pretty hefty boost for your movement. Some other stats also increase when you're mounted.

Ha, they look so familiar though. In the trailer I thought Kooluk had an exact replica of Teo's armored calvory because the similarities are so uncanny.
I hope everything is going delicious.

I hate to double post, but I have a question.

How do you obtain your mounts; tsuma and iwadori?

Is there a place you purchase/rent them from?

Are they simply on the batlefield and you get the choice whether you want to use them or not?

Do you choose mount from the menu and they appear out of nowhere?

I'm curious
I hope everything is going delicious.

First of all, Sars is right, They're tsunouma, not tsuuma. The first tsunouma is acquired around the time Corselia joins. The black iwadori and armored iwadori join along with those two female Razril knights(the ones in the beginning of SuikoIV). The green one joins through a guild quest. I forget the rest.

Yes.

I got my first Tsunouma when I visited Mercet for the first time (along with a somewhat shocking event). The second Tsunouma (armored) was gained as a prize for a quest. I just got my first two iwadoris yesterday, and they seem to be pretty important considering how you can't get some treasure chests without the ability to fly.

Tsunouma are able to do a rather powerful attack using the Tsunouma Rune. Tristan mounted on one of those using this rune seems to be able to defeat almost anything with one attack (My Tristan has a berserker belt that gives him +20 str).

You can get three of each.

Acquiring Tsunouma (Kangacorn):

1. When you first reach Mercet.
2. Quest.
3. Lino comes with one.

Acquiring Iwadori (Great Owl):

1, 2. Paula and Jewel ride on them as they join you at the Border Village
3. Another quest

Since Tsunouma have their own rune, do Iwadori have their own rune as well?

Yes. There's only 2 spells for them.

Tsunouma Rune (Kangacorn Rune)
Charge - pierce through an enemy unit(user ends up on other side of enemy) and deal 2x damage. User suffers 20% damage.
Heart of Tsunouma - user goes berserk, and gains a direct defense and magic defense increase for a set number of turns.

Iwadori Rune (Great Owl Rune)
Wind Blade - deal 0.5x damage to enemies, +radius.
Heart of Iwadori - user goes berserk, and gains a hit rate and evade increase for a set number of turns.

Charge is by far the best spell. My Snowe and Jeremy killed most enemies at full health with a single charge.

Kangacorn? Makes me wonder if that is supposed to mean "kangaroo with corn", as opposed to the original "horse with horn" meaning of Tsunouma.

Ha, I was annoyed by the name Kangacorn. I suppose it does look more like a kangaroo than a horse, but still.

Iwadoria is called Giant Owl in Englih, which annoys me even more so.
I hope everything is going delicious.
