For Skeletal horse mounts, see Skeletal horse mounts.

Horse mounts are largely Alliance only mounts. Horse mounts, in this case, includes those horses that are summoned from another plane (Felsteeds), and those that are embodiments of spirits (Paladin's Chargers, Death Knight's Deathchargers).

Factional mounts: Apprentice

These mounts give a 60% speed increase on land. You can purchase these mounts from several vendors:

You must have riding skill of 75 (obtainable at level 20). If you are playing as any race other than a human, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with Stormwind City.

Additionally, the Black Stallion mount is only purchasable through Unger Statforth in the Wetlands. Despite the many rumours and misconceptions about the mount, it has the same requirements as the other Apprentice level horse mounts. A very common misconception is that the mount is a new mount, when in fact this mount has been available as long as the other mounts. Note there is no riding trainer in Menethil Harbor

Factional mounts: Journeyman

These mounts give a 100% speed increase on land. You can purchase these mounts from Katie Hunter, Merideth Carlson or Gregor MacVince, so long as your character has riding skill of 150 (obtainable at level 40). They are reputation restricted like the apprentice mounts.

Class specific mounts

Death Knights, Paladins, and Warlocks are all able to gain mounts specific to their class (and for paladins, faction).

Death Knights

The Death Knight [Acherus Deathcharger] is earned by Death Knights upon completion of the quest Neutral 15 [55] Into the Realm of Shadows.


Paladins gain the ability to summon a warhorse (apprentice level mount) at level 20, and a Charger (Journeyman level mount) at level 40.

Paladins (of both factions) are able to acquire an Argent Charger through the Argent Tournament once they reach the rank of <Crusader>.


Warlocks gain the ability to summon a Felsteed (apprentice level mount) at level 20, and a Dreadsteed (journeyman level mount) at level 40.

Other Horse mounts

PvP steed

The Black War Steed is available from Official alliance mini-icon  Lieutenant Karter <Mount Merchant> in Stormwind for Honor points. You do not need to have exalted reputation with Stormwind City to purchase it.

This is a slight variant on an older mount.

Argent Tournament

A number of differnt horses can be purchased from the Argent Tournament, each with different requirements.

The human quartermaster to the Argent Tournament offers the Swift Gray Steed and the Stormwind Steed. You must have completed Money achievement Champion of Stormwind or be a human to gain access to this quartermaster.

The high elves offer a Quel'dorei Steed through their quartermaster to anyone who is exalted with The Silver Covenant.

Dame Evniki Kapsalis offers the Argent Warhorse to people who have attained the rank of <Crusader>. As noted previously, she also offers the Argent Charger to Paladins with that title.

Horse mounts as loot

A number of horse mounts are available as loot items from various places.

The Fiery Warhorse is looted from Attumen the Huntsman. The mount of the Headless Horseman can be taken from him during Hallow's End.

The Trial of the Crusader offers up a Swift Alliance Steed to victorious alliance 10-man raids. Successes on 25-man raids offer the Crusader's White Warhorse to the Alliance, and Crusader's Black Warhorse to the Horde.

Defeating the Lich King on 25-player heroic mode has a rare chance to drop the Invincible Charger, the undead steed Invincible that belonged to Arthas Menethil in life and in death.[1]

Blizzard Pet Store

The Celestial Steed is a supernatural warhorse, the first mount directly purchasable from Blizzard, for $25US or €20/£17, and scales with the player's riding skill and location.

Discontinued mounts

These used the old horse mount graphics and as of Patch 1.4 are no longer obtainable. They can be exchanged for the newer variety if desired.


The Recruit-A-Friend program rewarded a player with a Swift Zhevra on successfully recruiting someone (who then paid for at least a month's subscription). This has since been replaced with the X-53 Touring Rocket.
