1. Black War Mounts

Black War Kodo

Source: PvP (battlegrounds)

Black War Mounts can be purchased for marks of honor: you need 30 marks of 3 original battlegrounds (Alterac Valley, Warsong Gulch, Arathi Basin). There are 5 black war mounts for either factions and they are all correspondent to regular racial mounts: Alliance gets a night elvian tiger, a ram, a mechanostrider, a horse, and an elekk, while Horde gets a wolf, a raptor, a kodo, an undead horse, and a hawkstrider. Also, there are no racial limitations for these mounts, even though there are certain restrictions for regular racial mounts: for example, as a tauren you can ride a black war hawkstrider, but you can't ride a regular one.

2. Cenarion War Hippogryph


Source: Reputation (Cenarion Expedition)

Cenarion War Hippogryph can be purchased for 2k gold from the Cenarion Expedition quartermaster as soon as you reach the Exalted reputation with that faction. To achieve it you mainly need to farm Zangarmarsh dungeons: Slave Pens, Underbog, and Steamvault.


3. Dark Talbuks

Dark War Talbuk

Source: PvP (Halaa) and Quests

Dark Talbuks can be purchased for Halaa Battle and Research Tokens. Battle Tokens are obtained for players' kills made in the Halaa PvP zone (Nagrand). Research Tokens are given for turning in Oshu'gun Crystal Power Samples. There are 2 dark talbuks you can purchase: the Dark Riding Talbuk (70 battle tokens, 15 research tokens) and the Dark War Talbuk (100 battle tokens, 20 research tokens). You can only purchase them when the Halaa PvP zone is under control of your faction.

4. Elekks (Alliance Only)


Source: Reputation (Exodar)

Elekks are Draenei racial mounts. They are available in 2 kinds: the rare ones (brown, gray, and purple) and the epic ones (blue, purple, and green). The former ones cost 1 gold, the latter cost 10 gold – but to become elligible for the purchase you have to be either exalted with Exodar or a draenei. All Alliance races can ride elekks.

5. Fiery Warhorse


Source: Raid (Karazhan)

Fiery Warhose is much harder to obtain in TBC than in the retail WoW. Even though the drop chance is equally small, the number of people you're going to need to accompany you is 9, while in the retail you easily can solo Attumen.

Attumen the Huntsman is the first boss of the Karazhan raid. You will find him after a couple of initial mob packs. The fight with him is not really difficult, as he's arguably the weakest raid boss of the expansion, but there are 9 more people who will roll for the mount with you. And you can loot the boss only once a week.

Also, you need someone in the party to have the Master Key to access the raid. The best way to solve this issue is to get it yourself. Even though the quest chain is lengthy, it's not really that hard to complete, just time-consuming. And the Master Key will definitely make you more popular, since there are many lazy people around who don't want to bother doing the quest chain themselves.


6. Flying Machine


Source: Profession (Engineering)

Flying Machine can be only used by engineers. However, it doesn't mean that you'll have to craft it yourself: since this mount is sellable on Auction House, that's where you can purchase it from. It comes in 2 forms: the rare one (Flying Machine Control) and the epic one (Turbo-Charged Flying Machine). The former requires Engineering level 350 and the latter requires level 375 to use it. They are both pricey, regardless of whether you want to craft it or buy it: there are lots of rare ingredients you'll have to use to assemble it, so it's going to take either some time to farm them, or some gold to buy them.

7. Gryphons (Alliance only)

173451 swift blue gryphon

Source: Vendor

Gryphons are Alliance's basic flying mounts. They come in 2 types: the rare ones (60% flying speed; snowy, ebon, and golden) and the epic ones (280% flying speed; purple, blue, red, and green). The former cost 100 gold each, the latter cost 200 gold each + your character needs a flying skill to use them. Just like all other flying mounts, they can only be used in Outland.

8. Hawkstriders (Horde only)


Source: Reputation (Silvermoon)

Hawkstriders are Blood Elf racial mounts. They are available in 2 kinds: the rare ones (black, purple, red, and blue) and the epic ones (pink, purple, and green). The former ones cost 1 gold, the latter cost 10 gold – but to become elligible for the purchase you have to be either exalted with Silvermoon or a blood elf. All Horde races except for taurens can ride hawkstriders. Yes, that's very unfair.

9. Nether Drakes


Source: Reputation (Netherwing)

Nether Drake can be obtained for free by your character as soon as your reach the Exalted reputation with the Netherwing faction in Shadowmoon Valley. You can choose a nether drake of any color as a free nether drake and you will also be able to buy the rest for 200 gold each later.


10. Nether Rays


Source: Reputation (Sha'Tari Skyguard)

Nether Rays can be purchased from the Sha'Tari Skyguard quartermaster for 160 gold as soon as you reach the Exalted reputation with that faction. To achieve that you'll mainly have to do lots of daily quests.


11. Raven Lord (Anzu)


Source: Dungeon Drop (Sethekk Halls Heroic)

Raven Lord is pretty difficult to get: first you have to be able to access the Heroic version of Sethekk Halls. It means that you need to have a Revered reputation with Lower City in Shattrath, so you should begin with that farm. As soon as you're through with it, you can consider having a Heroic Sethekk Halls run, but there's a twist: you need a druid player who has already finished their class-specific quest and got the ability to summon Anzu.

Anzu is a bonus boss in Sethekk Halls and only experienced druids in WoW TBC can summon it. Most likely, the druid will not agree to help you for free, so be ready to pay for their service with gold. If you're a druid yourself, lucky you: you now only have to complete the lengthy class-specific quest chain that unlocks flying.

If you've managed to overcome all the difficulties, enter the dungeon with the party and get to Anzu's summoning location which is not far after the first boss. Summon the boss, take it down, and loot it. If you're lucky, you will find the rare mount in the loot. But the chance of that is below 1%, hence it might be wise to expect a slight disappointment.

12. Talbuks


Source: Reputation (Kurenai or Mag'Har)

Talbuks can be purchased for gold from the Kurenai or Mag'har quartermasters (depends on whether you play Alliance or Horde). They come in 2 types: regular unarmored talbuks (56 gold) and cooler armored talbuks (80 gold). Both give you the same speed bonus though, so the difference is just looks.


13. Windriders (Horde only)


Source: Vendor

Windriders are Horde's basil flying mounts. They come in 2 types: the rare ones (60% flying speed; blue, green, tawny) and the epic ones (280% flying speed; purple, yellow, red, and green). The former cost 100 gold each, the latter cost 200 gold each + your character needs a flying skill to use them. Just like all other flying mounts, they can only be used in Outland.

Patch 9.1: Chains of Domination

See our Patch 9.1 guide for the 45 new mounts added in Chains of Domination. There's a wide range of exciting new mount models to collect through activities in Korthia, the Maw, Covenants, and other sources.

Warp Stalker Mount with Burning Crusade Classic Deluxe Edition

The Burning Crusade Classic pre-patch event has begun!

As an added enhancement, Blizzard is offering a Deluxe Edition which includes a warp stalker mount for use in the retail game: the Viridian Phase-Hunter. This mount uses a brand-new warp stalker model that looks sleek and savage.

Other goodies included in the pack include a 'Reawakened Phase-Hunter' warp stalker mount for use exclusively in BC Classic (it uses the older, BC-era model), a couple of BC Classic toys, and 30 days' game time. We probably won't include the Reawakened Phase-Hunter in mount listings, because it's sadly not available in the retail game and so won't appear in Armory collections.

For more details check out your regional shop on Blizzard's websites, or the shop in the game client, or see Blizzard's official post.

75 EASY Mounts to Get in World of Warcraft! 400 Mounts Guide Part 1

The coolest World of Warcraft mounts that take absolutely no effort to get

You want to look like a badass in World of Warcraft, but you don't have the time or energy to sit and farm Invincible, Arthas' warhorse, for 500 hours. Or maybe you haven't spent years hoarding a few million gold to drop on the Black Market Auction House for a sweet ride like everyone's favorite long-necked dino. Or, hell, maybe you're just extremely lazy. No judgements. Whatever the reason is, you can get around in style in World of Warcraft without wasting countless hours of your life, and without breaking the bank. If you're the type of person who just wants a cool mount without much effort this is the guide for you.

Below you'll find a list of very cool mounts that either have a 100 percent drop rate, simply require you to mess around some of World of Warcraft's older zones, or mounts that cost just a modest amount of gold. Here are some of my favorite, and easiest to get, mounts in World of Warcraft.

(You can click on the mount's name to see its Wowhead page for more info.)

Bronze Drake

What is better than a good dragon to ride around on? Nothing, that's what. The Bronze Drake is truly a classic, and it has aged gracefully. It might not be as fancy as WoW's modern dragon mounts—lacking both the polygon count and cool visual effects, but there's beauty in its simplicity. Also younger players will probably think you got this from some uber-challenging raid boss from way back in the day or something. The best part is, this bad boy takes less than 15 minutes to acquire, and it is a 100 percent drop chance.

How to get it: To acquire the Bronze Drake all you have to do is go to The Culling of Stratholme instance, a dungeon in the Caverns of Time, reenacting one of Warcraft 3's most iconic scenes. But you're not here for that, you're here to get your inner Sonic the Hedgehog on and go fast. All you have to do is complete the dungeon, following the markers on your minimap, before the timer expires. Given that this dungeon is nearly 15 years old, it's a cake walk. When you get to the end of the dungeon you can walk straight past Mal'ganis and face off against Infinite Corruptor—who you will easily kill in just one shot. Loot your defeated foe to claim your prize, Reins of the Bronze Drake. 

Shimmermist Runner

Look at this horse. My horse is amazing. Shimmermist Runner is a new addition in Shadowlands and may be one of the coolest mounts in the game. And it takes less than five minutes to get her. This is probably my favorite mount from Shadowlands, and the one I use most often.

How to get: Head down to Ardenweald—more specifically the area called Root-Home—and get ready to traverse the maze of Tirna Scithe. You'll need to take a very specific route through Tirna Scithe, but our guide has all the necessary steps (and also shows you how to get some other very easy Shadowlands-specific mounts). Once you get to the end of the maze there's one rare mob that stands in the way of you and your horse. Take it down and claim your prize.  

Grand Expedition Yak

In the time it took you to read this opening sentence, you could have already purchased this yak. That's how easy it is. The only downside is that the Grand Expedition Yak does cost a modest 120,000 gold—which will take a little bit of time if you're brand new. Most of you should have the coin, though. It's worth it because this is one of the most useful mounts in the game. It has both a transmog vendor and a regular vendor strapped to either side of the saddle. Now you can empty your bags or change your appearance in a pinch.

How to get: To get your hands on this mighty mount you'll have to head to Kun-Lai Summit in Mists of Pandaria, and make your way to the village of One Keg on your map. From there it's a simple jaunt to the east where you'll find Uncle Bigpocket, who will gladly sell you this most prized yak. 

Arboreal Gulper

The Arboreal Gulper is the current meme mount of Shadowlands. If you own it and spend enough time hanging around popular cities like Oribos, you're bound to find an opportunity to join congo lines or form a massive circle of players all sitting astride their own Arboreal Gulper. It's also just one of the coolest, and easiest to obtain mounts in World of Warcraft. The Gulper is a 100 percent drop chance from a rare mob found in Ardenweald.

How to get: To start you need to loot an Unusually Large Mushroom, from any mob in all of Ardenweald. Any mob can drop the mushroom, and more likely than not you've already had one, or a dozen, and not even noticed. After you've acquired your mushroom, you can head off to spawn Humon'gozz, a rare boss with a fair amount of HP (I'd recommend bringing a friend or two to help you down him, as you'll all get the mount). If you're having any trouble getting Humon'gozz to spawn, or downing him, check out our guide. After you have your Gulper the world is your… fly? Osyster? I'm not sure, but enjoy your time in Gulper trains around Oribos, Gulper choruses outside of Castle Nathria, or maybe just enjoy life on the hop. 

Red Flying Cloud

If you've ever seen any of the Dragon Ball animes, you are well acquainted with Goku's awesome flying cloud. Now how cool would it be to have one of your own? Well if you're exalted with the Lorewalkers, which, considering they were a Mists of Pandaria rep is decently likely, or if you're willing to grind out the now trivial reputation, all you have to do is fly around and pick up a few scrolls and turn them into Lorewalker Cho. If you prefer a video guide, check this out from Nobbel. Once that errand is done, it's time to enjoy your cloud. And it will only take an hour or two.

How to get: The Red Flying Cloud is a simple 600 gold purchase away, all you have to do is head to the Vale of Eternal Blossoms and speak to Tan Shin Tiao after reaching exalted status with the Lorewalkers. Not only is the Red Flying Cloud a cool crossover, it is one of the more timeless mounts in World of Warcraft.

Smoldering Ember Wyrm

The Smoldering Ember Wyrm (or Nightbane) is one of World of Warcraft's most poorly kept secrets, but now that we have moved past the Legion expansion it's easy to get on your own, and is one of the coolest dragon mounts in the game. Who doesn't want to ride around on a flaming skeleton dragon?

How to get: To get your hands on Nightbane you'll have to go into Karazhan—the Legion dungeon, not the original vanilla one. If you're confused, here's a guide. Once inside the dungeon, you're going to see a message in chat that reads "The strange chill of a dark presence winds through the air." This is the beginning of a secret timer that requires you to  find five crystals in five minutes, though each crystal resets the timer back to five minutes. The guide on the exact locations of each can be found on Wowhead. Don't worry, though. If you're level 60 it shouldn't take more than a single try as the timer was initially designed for max-level players back in Legion. You'll be way stronger than that and can probably one-shot most monsters. Once you've finished running all over the tower you will face off against Nightbane himself. He was a tough boss at the time, but not anymore. Smoldering Ember Wyrm has a 20 percent chance to drop, so it's not a guarantee. But running this a few times will probably only take you an hour or so. 

Sandstone Drake

The final mount on our guide is extremely unique: You don't ride it, you transform into it. It even has an extra seat so a friend can ride you. Sandstone Drake is an extremely useful mount, as one of the few two-seater flying mounts in World of Warcraft. This drake is traditionally a recipe learned through Alchemy— but we have a shortcut. Because otherwise what's the point of this lazy farming guide?

How to get: As I said above, there's two ways to get Sandstone Drake, you can loot the Recipe: Vial of Sands from Archaeology, and then spend a whole bunch of time farming a bunch of items—boring. Your other option is going to your favorite auction house and purchasing "Vial of the Sands" for about 60,000 gold and skipping all that. Who said money can't buy happiness?

If these none of these mounts pique your interest, here's some other awesome mounts that just might:
