Official Description
Balios is an especially generous divine horse. 

On the 19th of every month, at the site's update time, it will give its owner a Nyx Pack , but only if the owner logged in the day before. 

If the owner wasn't its breeder, it gives them a Nyx Pack on the 19th of January, April, July and October only (as long as the owner logged in the day before). 

Plus, its skills increase a little every day...

This horse can be sold.

In Greek mythology, Balios and Xanthos were two immortal horses, the offspring of Zephyrus and Podarge. As a wedding gift when Peleus married ocean goddess Thetis, Poseidon gave the two to King Peleus, who then gave him to his son, Achilles. Achilles had a third, mortal horse, named Pedasos, who was worked as a trace horse alongside Balios and Xanthos. Pedasos was killed by a spear thrown by Sarpedon, which had been aimed at Achille's comrade Patrolcus, the former groomer and feeder of the three horses. When Patrolcus was also slain, Xanthos and Balios stood motionless on the battlefield and wept. When Xanthos was rebuked by the grieving Achilles for allowing Patroclus to be slain, Hera granted Xanthos human speech, breaking Divine law.

The Latin spelling of Balios's name is Balius.

There are seven different types of Balios:

  • Nebula
  • Lightning
  • Snow
  • Solar
  • Drought
  • Volcanic
  • Rainbow
Balios, no matter his type, cannot be bred. He has 658 Genetic Potential.
