Celestial Steed Edit
- Patch 2.4.3 changed the level at which a paladin is eligible to learn a warhorse spell from 40 to 30 and patch 3.2.0 changed the level from 30 to level 20.
- Previously, Dwarf and Human Paladins obtained the spell through a quest called . This quest consisted of speaking with Duthorian Rall in Stormwind's Cathedral Square. In Burning Crusade, blood elf paladins obtained their warhorse from Knight-Lord Bloodvalor in Silvermoon's Farstriders' Square. This was changed shortly after the release of Burning Crusade when the spell was added as a learnable spell from the paladin trainer. This was presumably to stop the complaints of paladins getting a free mount.
- Since the mount system revamp in patch 1.12.1, the paladin will obtain Apprentice riding skill upon getting the Summon Warhorse spell from the trainer. Since patch 3.2.0, the spell no longer needs mana to summon the warhorse.
