TrainersMounts
See mount (disambig) for a less gigantic list with specific lists.

Mounts are a much sought after form of transportation in which players ride atop the backs of various more or less exotic beasts (or machinations). Warlocks and paladins can learn to summon mounts as a class perk. Mounted travel is almost always faster than walking/running (some vanity mounts such as Sea Turtle provide no speed benifit on the ground).

Each faction had its own riding skill with a cost of 100 gold, available at level 40. Some mounts do not cost any gold or other currencies (such as honor points) and will drop at very low rates from bosses in instances such as Stratholme, Zul'Gurub, Tempest Keep, Magisters' Terrace, Sethekk Halls, Karazhan, and Utgarde Pinnacle. There are numerous other methods to obtain mounts as well, such as class quests.

Mounts have a 1.5 second cast time, which will be interrupted by taking any damage, moving, or entering combat. Mounts also have a special emote that can be seen by either jumping (the Space key by default) while not moving or performing the /mountspecial slash command. For example hawkstriders will shriek and horses will rear up on their hind legs.

Riding Profession

Riding is a secondary profession in which characters may learn to ride mounts. Every mount has a minimum skill level required for riding.

In general, a normal mount will require Apprentice riding skill, and a swift mount will require Journeyman skill, but there are exceptions.
(More detail on the requirements for each mount can be found on the Mounts page.)

The following table lists the skill levels available and the cost to train the skill. because of the high cost of this training, the price with discounts is also listed in the table. The two discounts that are available are:

  • 10% Honored Faction discount
  • 10% PvP Rank 3 discount


Skill Proficiency Cost 10% Discount 20% Discount
75 Apprentice 100 90 80
150 Journeyman 1000 900 800

Historical note

The cost structure and functionality of Riding and Mounts was changed in patch 1.12. Prior to that patch, Riding was an ability rather than a secondary Profession, and had only one rank. Each faction had its own riding skill (tiger riding, horse riding, mechanostrider piloting, ram riding) and the cost was 100, available at level 40. Exalted reputation was required to learn cross-faction riding skill, but mounts were BoE and purchasable by anyone. This meant that characters who were PvP rank 3 or higher could pass on the 10% discount directly to other characters by buying the mount for them. This is no longer possible because all mounts are now BoP, and the majority of the cost is built into the Riding skill training (which is no longer faction-specific) rather than the cost of the mount. Note: Exalted reputation is required to buy cross-faction mounts.


Available mounts

The tables below are separated based on mount source, such as purchase requirements, killing specific creatures, participating in world events, completing achievements or more.

Racial mounts

To edit this section, click here.

Racial land mounts are typically the first mounts players will acquire. To purchase a racial land mount, players must either purchase their race's mount (such as horses for humans, or wolves for orcs), or gain exalted standing with that race's representative faction (such as exalted with Darnassus to purchase sabers). Flying mounts do not require any reputation rating.

In Cataclysm Cataclysm, the worgen do not get a racial mount, but instead use the ability [Running Wild] to achieve mount-like speeds.

Class-specific mounts

To edit this section, click here.

There are four classes in the game that can acquire special mounts and abilities linked to their own class through lore: death knights, druids, paladins, and warlocks. The original quests to gain the paladin charger, warlock dreadsteed, and druid's swift flight form are all still in-game and reward feats of strength if they are completed. The aforementioned quests are not required to learn the ability, however, and are on the class trainers at the level listed in the table.

Druid and paladin abilities are slightly different based on race and faction. For example, the Alliance charger is blue and golden, while the Horde version is red and bronze. Similarly, night elf druids are black in flight form, while tauren are tan. With Cataclysm, it seems that tauren and draenei paladins will not be getting chargers, but special types of Kodo and Elekk mounts, respectively.[1][2]

Rare drop mounts

Rarely, specific creatures will drop a mount as a reward. If the mount drops, only one mount will appear per kill, no matter the size of the party or raid killing the creature. Also, mounts may rarely be inside other containers rewarded for doing other objectives.

Guaranteed drop mounts

Wrath This section concerns content exclusive to Wrath of the Lich King.

A guaranteed drop mount will result in one mount being awarded upon killing the specified creature under the condition listed, regardless of the size of the party or raid. For mounts rewarded such that everyone who completes the achievement gets the mount, see the "Achievements" section. There is no direct achievement for killing the Time-Lost Proto-Drake; the hard part is actually finding the drake alive.

So far, all these mounts were introduced in Wrath Wrath of the Lich King.

Holiday mounts

To edit this section, click here.

There are several disguises and time-limited items that are available during holidays. Disguises simply turn the player's mount into something "more festive" like a kodo or a reindeer but do not otherwise affect mount mechanics. Time-limited items exist only during the duration of the holiday itself. Previously, time-limited items had a set time such as seven or 14 days, but were changed to be directly tied to the holiday.

Back during Brewfest 2007, an ["Honorary Brewer" Hand Stamp] was available for purchase and granted access to the [Brewfest Ram] and [Swift Brewfest Ram] vendors. Coren Direbrew (the holiday boss in the Grim Guzzler of Blackrock Depths) had not yet been implemented, so completing the quest was the only way to get the mounts. The hand stamp was removed for the 2008 Brewfest and the Swift Brewfest Ram added to Coren Direbrew's loot table (along with the new [Great Brewfest Kodo]), but the 60%-speed Brewfest Ram can no longer be purchased except by players who completed the Hand Stamp quest.

Outside of game mounts

The mounts in previous sections are acquired using solely in-game means. The mounts that follow require some real-world interactions, such as getting a rare loot card in the TCG, going to BlizzCon, or purchasing mounts from the Blizzard Store.

BlizzCon mounts

The BlizzCon Mounts comes from the BlizzCon Welcome packages. The mounts must first be unlocked using a code found on the Blizzard Convention Card, the NPC's for unlocking the mounts can be found in Valley of Honor, Orgrimmar if you are Horde or in Forlorn Cavern, Ironforge if Alliance.

Mount class examples

Vanity mounts

Vanity mounts only exist to put the player on a mount. They confer no bonuses to movement speed, and thus require no riding skill. The two vanity mounts are the [Rickety Magic Broom], a fairly common reward for completing daily quests during Hallow's End, and the [Riding Turtle], available from the TCG.

Patch history

  • Patch 1.12.1 (patch date:2006-09-26): The riding skill has been changed. A riding skill of 75 is now needed to ride level 40 mounts and a skill of 150 for level 60 mounts. Those that already have mounts will automatically be granted the appropriate level skill. 
  • Patch 1.12.0 (patch date:2006-08-22): The Items that summon mounts have been changed in their color/quality. Items that summon normal mounts are now blue (superior) items and items that summon swift mounts are now purple (epic) items. 
  • Patch 1.6.0 (patch date:2005-07-12): Clarified the error message when trying to attack while mounted. 
  • Patch 1.5.0 (patch date:2005-06-07): Many of the Swift Mounts have gained eye glows and some have had other tweaks made to them to improve their looks. 
  • Patch 1.4.0 (patch date:2005-05-05): Level 60 mounts purchased at vendors now have a whole new look. Faster undead mounts already have a different look and so have not changed. The new mounts can be seen standing near the mount vendors. If you have one of the old fast mounts, you can exchange it for one with a new look at the mount vendor. 
  • Patch 1.3.0 (patch date:2005-03-07): Mounts now are Horde or Alliance restricted in the tooltip. We do not intend to allow Horde players to ride Alliance vendor-purchased mounts and vice versa. 
  • Patch 1.2.0 (patch date:2004-12-18): Players will now be able to purchase and train mounts from other races in their faction. However, you will first need to obtain "Exalted" reputation status with that race in order to do so. Mounts of the opposing faction are not available for purchase. 
  • Patch 1.1.0 (patch date:2004-11-07): Tauren players will no longer have the [Plainsrunning] ability, due to the availability of Kodo mounts! Tauren players can purchase the Kodo mount at Bloodhoof village

Notes

  • Mounts have a special emote they can do: This can be invoked while motionless on the ground, either by the /mountspecial slash command, or by pressing the Space key
