I didnt realise that you cant use the veteran reward etheral mounts unless you have the gametime behind you. I bought one for 2.9 mil and I cant use it for 57 more months... :eusa_doh:

    How do you tell when you run out of invisible ink?

your set up in 4 1/2 years think of it like stock that might be a rare when you can use it
For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.

Don't the vet reward items tell you in their description what age your account needs to be in order to use them???

Just says 2nd(3rd..whatever) veteran reward but doesnt specify what age your account needs to be.

Like merth and kingtony says...Its a good investment :)

There should be some warning on the ethereal's description before it lets you trade
You can however ride ONE ethereal, the Mondains legacy Charger of the fallen.
Not sure how much they go for, but they aren't dependant on account age.
Maybe you could trade with someone for one of those?

good call Ad however most ethys sell for far less than charger, at the price he paid my advice would be:

1. hold onto it til able to ride/ become a rare
2. or sell for actual worth( 5 yr ethy prolly sell for more like 4 to 5 mil I would think depending on shard)

If your character dies while mounted on an ethy or charger, the animal will end up in your pack as a statue and because it's blessed cannot be looted by anyone but you.

Word of warning though, keep the ethy or charger in your main pack, do not put it in another bag in your pack or it can, at that point, be looted.

Also..from memory, if you're overloaded with items and you dismount, doesn't the ethy drop to the floor?
Might wanna watch out for that..assuming that still happens.
