DW4 and on, horses use up a separate item slot, so there's really no reason not to bring a steed along for the ride. :)

Saddles have a separate item slot in DW4. Horned Helm and Cavalry armor are a different story... don't equip those unless you're going to be doing a LOT of mounted fighting, otherwise you are just wasting an item slot or two.

Wait, saddles are a regular item in 5 and 6? That's messed up.

I just meant that Zhang Fei looks funny on horseback.

Ma Chao has a great mounted attack in a way, 'cause when most guys hit side to side, it doesn't actually kill much. But one sided is much better.

Meng Huo on any horse looks funny IMO. ;)

I read Sean's post wrong. My bad. You meant saddles were a regular item before 4. OK that makes more sense.

I just plain don't care for Meng Huo... I thought Xu Zhu was slow! Acquired taste I suppose.

Liu Bei is effective on horse-back--since he uses a sword he swings faster right? He might be doing less overall damage on horseback compared to Guan Yu and Zhang Fei, but for me, horses are used for getting to Point A to Point B faster. I hardly attack on horseback unless I'm using Ma Chao and Shadow Harness and want to rack up cheap KOs for no apparent reason.

I do that too, but I sometimes actually care about how my character looks on horseback. Yeah, I know, it might sound weird; it is in the midst of battle.

I like Liu Bei's moveset the best, actually. He's got pretty decent stats, and isn't too slow.

But in DW6 my favorite cutscene-wise has to be Zhang Fei.

Liu Bei is cool and well-balanced, and his sword grows longer in DW4's Musou attack, but his range is a bit too short. I like spearmen, they can hit more wider areas.
