Reins of the Wooly Mammoth

An undead riding his giant mammoth.

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). They can be accessed via the Mounts and Pets window. Warlocks, paladins and death knights can learn to summon mounts as a class perk. The Alliance Worgen have a race skill Running Wild that they will get at level 20. Druids can shape shift into multiple forms that improve their speed. Mounted travel is almost always faster than walking/running (some vanity mounts such as Sea Turtle provide no speed benefit on the ground). World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade introduced flying mounts in select areas, which further increased the maximum possible player movement speed. World of Warcraft: Cataclysm opened up much of Azeroth to flying mounts.

Mounts were generally expensive in the past, but their prices have been reduced while the training to ride them increased in order to compensate. However, some mounts do not cost any gold or other currencies (such as honor points) and will drop at very low drop 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, completing achievements, and even a select few rare spawns drop mounts.

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 skills and abilities Edit

See Also: Riding
NOTE: After 0400Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm, speed is not based on mount class but only on riding skill.

Beebonmount

A Human Mage riding a Swift White Steed, an Alliance Epic Mount.

Warhorse-charger

Blood Knights riding their Horde paladin mounts.

There are a total of five classes of mounts:

Class Quality Ground Air Water
Ground mounts Rare/Epic 60% 0%
Flying mounts Rare/Epic 100% 150%
Amphibious mounts Rare/Epic 0% 250%
Aquatic mounts Rare/Epic 100%/350%
Vanity mounts Rare/Epic 0% 0%

Ground mounts cannot fly, but flying mounts are able to run (or fly) along the ground in areas where flight is prohibited. Both flying and ground mounts can swim (but not any faster than swimming without a mount). Aquatic mounts can walk on land (but not any faster than walking without the mount). Vanity mounts confer no benefits (and thus, require no riding skill or character level).}}

General Riding SkillEdit

There are five general tiers of riding which can be learned from trainers as a character increases in level. These become available for characters to train once they meet the particular level requirements. The speed of a character's mounts generally increases with each tier of riding skill, while some tiers of riding grant the ability to ride flying mounts. The general riding skills are:

  • Apprentice: Level 20
  • Journeyman: Level 40
  • Expert: Level 60
  • Artisan: Level 70
  • Master: Level 80

Class-Specific Riding SkillsEdit

At level 40, paladins and warlocks can learn [Summon Charger] and [Dreadsteed] from their class trainers after learning the Journeyman riding skill from the riding trainer. There is no need to purchase a new mount. Death knights receive their epic ground mount, the [Acherus Deathcharger], after the completion of the quests Grand Theft Palomino and Into the Realm of Shadows at level 55. Druids can learn [Flight Form] from any flight trainer at level 58.

Unlocking Flight in Specific AreasEdit

In areas where flying is allowed, a character typically needs to train a specific riding skill in order to unlock the ability to fly in that region. These types of skills and their requirements can be found in the table below.

Increasing your speed Edit

Through guild advancement Edit

The guild perk [Mount Up] will increase your riding speed by 10%.

Through class abilities and talentsEdit

Trollsraptors

Two trolls riding raptors.

Shaman and Druids acquire shapeshift forms ([Ghost Wolf] for shaman and [Travel Form] for druids) that increase their movement speed (not as much as a mount, but it is trainable at an earlier level), while Hunters get aspects to boost their own movement speed and that of their party. Rogues and druids (in [Cat Form]) have an ability to temporarily increase movement speed. Here are the skills and abilities that provide some classes with a bit of a faster mount movement speed, either passively or by the activation of an ability.

  • IconSmall Deathknight Death Knight
    • APB Deathknight Unholy [Unholy Presence] as of 0500Mists-Logo-Small "Mists of Pandaria", Unholy Presence now grants an additional 15% movement speed, regardless of specialization.
  • IconSmall Hunter Hunter
    • Ability mount jungletiger [Pathfinding] in the Beast Mastery talent tree (tier 3). Increases your speed while mounted by 5%/10%. The mounted movement speed increase does not stack with other effects.
  • IconSmall Paladin Paladin
    • Spell holy persuitofjustice [Pursuit of Justice] in the Retribution talent tree (tier 3). Increases your movement speed (and mounted movement speed) by 8%/15%. This does not stack with other speed increasing effects.
    • Spell holy crusaderaura [Crusader Aura] at level 62. Movement speed while mounted is increased by 20%. The mounted movement speed increase does not stack with other effects.
    • Spell holy auramastery [Aura Mastery] in the Holy tree (tier 3) does not directly increase mounted movement speed, but it does boost Crusader Aura. With these two abilities combined, it is possible to increase mounted movement speed by 40% for 6 seconds every 2 minutes.

Through items and enchantsEdit

Thunderingjadecloudserpent

A Thundering Jade Cloud Serpent.

There are five other methods for increasing your mounted speed, with no effects beyond level 70:

These last two items effectively increase a mount's speed by 10%. However, they do not stack with the previously mentioned methods, so they are approximately (see below) a 1% improvement over using the above 3 items combined. It should be also noted that for players of WotLK the Riding Crop is only usable for two levels (69 and 70), and the Skybreaker Whip only for one level (70).

All speed improvement items work on both normal and flying mounts (with the exception of npc controlled point-to-point flight).

0300Wrath-Logo-Small Characters higher than level 70 will not benefit from mount speed improvement items and enchants. With Cataclysm, the following are no longer available:


Available mounts Edit

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 Edit

Greyridingyak2

The face of a Grey Riding Yak.

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 the initial release of 0400Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm, the worgen did not get a racial mount, but instead used the ability [Running Wild] to achieve mount-like speeds. However, a mountain horse mount (regular and swift) was added in Patch 4.3 as the worgen racial mount.

Class-specific mounts Edit

Azurecloudserpent

An Azure Cloud Serpent.

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.[3][4]

PvP mounts Edit

Time-Lost Proto-Drake

The Time-lost Proto Drake.

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.

Amphibious mounts Edit

Main article: Amphibious mount

Amphibious mounts confer a slight increase in swim speed, but move no faster than walking while on land. Amphibious mounts do not give their riders the ability to breathe underwater, so plan accordingly with one of appropriate items or abilities.

These mounts are obtainable by completing certain achievements. As part of completing the achievement, the mount will be mailed directly to the player, or available for purchase at select locations.

Holiday mounts Edit

[link]Click here to reveal the list of holiday mounts (it may take a few seconds to load)[/link]
This table requires JavaScript to be enabled and site tooltips to be turned on to be displayed.
You can also view the data on another page.

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.

Flying mounts in Kalimdor & Eastern Kingdoms Edit

Stormwind City from above pre-Cataclysm

With careful use of Eagle Eye or Far Sight, it is possible to see why Flying Mounts are not allowed in the old world until the Cataclysm expansion hits.

At BlizzCon 2009 it was revealed that flying mounts will be available in some form to use in Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms with the release of the next expansion, titled Cataclysm. Blizzard officials had previously stated that it was unlikely that they would allow flying mounts in these continents since doing so would require them to redesign the continents with flying mounts in mind.

Prior to 0400Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm, the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor were unsuitable for flying mounts; there were visual glitches like mountains and high buildings whose tops cannot be seen, and places where the terrain abruptly changes from one tileset to another, creating a grossly unrealistic appearance in some areas. There are also zones which should have been there lore-wise but were empty and unfinished.

With the expansion, rebuilding the continents is precisely what zone developers did, which explains why flying in those continents became possible.

Vanity mounts Edit

Main article: Vanity mount
Icon-edit-22x22
Note: This is a generic section stub. You can help expand it by clicking Sprite-monaco-pencil Edit to the right of the section title.

Vanity mounts only exist to put the player on a mount. They confer generally no bonuses to movement speed, and thus require no riding skill. The two non-temporary, 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.

  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.3.0 (07-Mar-2005): 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.
  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.2.0 (18-Dec-2004): Players will now be able to purchase and train mounts from other races in their faction.

  • 0100WoW Icon 16x16 Patch 1.1.0 (07-Nov-2004): 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 Edit

  • 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
  • Flying mounts can perform a loop! Press Pitch Up or Pitch Down (normally Ins and Del) while in flight to perform a loop. On a macintosh, the Help key, or the Fn+Del combination (on the laptop) will start it.
  • Additionally, while in a loop, you can use your strafe keys.
  • Mounts that allow passengers (the two choppers, the [Grand Ice Mammoth], the [Traveler's Tundra Mammoth] and [Grand Black War Mammoth]) allow other characters to ride as passengers. Currently, the only flying mount that allows passengers is the Recruit-A-Friend mount, the [X-53 Touring Rocket‎‎].
