Avareth Swiftstrike at the Argent Tournament Grounds wants you to speak to Rugan Steelbelly and Charge 2 vulnerable Charge Targets.


Your strongest attack in mounted combat is undoubtedly the Charge. Take this lance and mount the stabled Quel'dorei Steed just outside the pavilion.

Once you're mounted, speak with Rugan Steelbelly. He's on the northern edge of the tournament grounds at the training area east of the Aspirant's Ring. Rugan will tell you how to use this powerful ability and teach you some basic stragies.


Have you mastered the use of the Charge?


With a teacher like Rugan, you'll be an expert at mounted combat in no time.


You will receive: 3Gold 70Silver and 11,050 experience (or 6Gold 63Silver at level 80)


Rugan Steelbelly:

Hey there, how are ye?
Come ta learn the art o' the Charge, <class>?

Gossipgossipicon Show me how to train with a Charge Target?

Use Shield-Breaker on a Charge Target.
Follow up with Charge while the target is vulnerable.

Gossipgossipicon Tell me more about the Charge!

Well then! A mounted Charge is about more than just kickin' yer mount ta full speed an' hollerin' yer lungs out... though that IS the fun part, heh! But the Charge Target will teach ye the finer points.
A good Charge is all about distance and timing. Ye can't be TOO close, or ye won't get enough speed. But ye can't be too far away either or yer mount will tire! As fer timin'...
Ye'll want ta make sure the Charge Target doesn't have a layer o' Defend up before ye rush in. If it does, use yer Shield-Breaker ta make it vulnerable, and THEN : Charge in!
Same goes for the real thing: Try ta drop yer opponent defense before ye Charge!
