In The Lord of the Rings Online: Riders of Rohan, the War-steed is your personal combat mount. It gains experience and can be trained and specialized in a variety of ways. Assigning earned trait points will allow you to improve their attributes,acquire new skills, and improve your own mounted combat skills.
Unlike standard travel mounts, War-steeds hail from a long lineage of majestic, highly intelligent, and kingly creatures known as the Mearas. They are faster, stronger, and thoroughly trained for battle.
