World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth mounts are just like any other mounts in the game – a bit of a fashion icon. World of Warcraft isn’t exactly known for its gear sets and character models outside of a few big weapons like a few other MMORPGs, but players can flaunt their cash and determination to the game with a shiny new (and expensive) mount. Battle for Azeroth adds a bunch more to the already massive collection, and here’s how you can grab each and every one of them.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Mount Vendors
We’re going to kick things off with a look at some of Battle for Azeroth’s highly detailed horses. Horses in World of Warcraft have evolved many times over since the launch of the game almost 15 years ago, and these simply cost a pretty penny or two.
They’re faction mounts, though, so you’ll also need to reach Exalted Reputation with a chosen faction before you’re able to buy them.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth – Alliance Faction Mounts
Clan: Order of Embers
Cost: 10,000 Gold
This dark-colored stallion requires you to hit Exalted Reputation with the Order of Embers. Then, head on over to Quartermaster Alcorn in Arom’s Stand, Drustvar. Be prepared to part ways with 10,000 Gold in the transaction.
Clan: Proudmore Admiralty
Cost: 10,000 Gold
An actual stallion by name, this white-colored beast requires you to reach Exalted Reputation with the Proudmoore Admirality. If you’ve been a long-time fan of the Warcraft universe (and an Alliance player) we expect this of you anyway. Once reached, head on over to Provisioner Fray in the Harbormaster’s Office in Tiragarde Sound. That place is a maze. Then trade 10,000 Gold for the privilege of riding this majestic steed.
Clan: Storm’s Wake
Cost: 10,000 Gold
Adorned with blue ribbon, the Dapple Gray is just as the name suggests – gray. This one requires you to reach Exalted Reputation with the Storm’s Wake. Reach that and all you need to do is head on over to Sister Lilyana in Brennadam, Stormsong Valley to grab it for the low-low price of… 10,000 Gold.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth – Horde Faction Mounts
For all you brute Horde players, you’re set to ride some equally aggressive-looking mounts across Kul Tiras throughout the expansion. The first of these follow in the footsteps of the Alliance BfA mounts, meaning you’ll need to grind reputation across the three isles and part with 10,000 Gold for each mount you want to add to your collection.
In no particular order, we start with the Alabaster Hyena. Horde players can grab this mount by reaching Exalted status with the Voldunai, where they’ll then be able to pick it up from Hoarder Jena in Vulpera Hidaway in Vol’dun for 10,000 Gold.
A spider you’ll never see me personally riding on, this 8-legged freak comes from the Talanji’s Expedition. Reach Exalted Reputation with them and you can pick this monstrosity up from Provisioner Lija in the Zul’Jan Ruins of Nazmir for, you guessed it, 10,000 Gold.
Unlike the Alliance, the Horde gets a flying mount through one of their clan vendors. This requires Exalted Reputation with the Zandalari Empire. It can then be picked up for 10,000 Gold by speaking to Natal’hakata inside The Great Seal in the Dazar’alor area of Zuldazar. That’s a tricky one to say.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth – Allied Race Mounts
A new feature for World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth was the introduction of Allied Races. These racial variants (like Dark Iron Dwarves) can be unlocked through quest chains which then open up the race for future characters on the player’s account. There aren’t too many at the moment, but each adds a new faction-specific mount to the mix.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth – Alliance Allied Race Mounts
Dark Iron Core Hound
Arguably the coolest Allied Race mount of them all is the Dark Iron Core Hound. To unlock this one, you’ll simply need to have unlocked the Dark Iron Dwarves as a playable race on your account.
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth – Horde Allied Race Mounts
For those looking to recreate a scene from Game of Thrones (with the wrong colors), you’ll need to unlock the Mag’har Orcs as a playable race on your account. Easy.
The stronger-looking of the three allied race mounts, the Zandalari Direhorn has the same requirements – simply unlock the ZandWarcraftrolls as a playable race.
World of Wacraft: Battle for Azeroth Achievement Mounts
If you’ve been collecting mounts for years now, you might actually be close to getting a couple of the new Battle for Azeroth achievement mounts already. If now, well… don’t worry about it. These look good, but they’re bound to require the most amount of work than any other mount in the game at this mount.
• Obsidian Krolusk
◦ Unlock the “Glory of the Wartorn Hero” achievement
• Frostshard Infernal
◦ Unlock 350 mounts on a single character
• Frenzied Feltalon
◦ Unlock 400 mounts on a single character

World of Wacraft: Battle for Azeroth Crafted / Quest Mounts
There’s a bunch of Battle for Azeroth mounts that can be obtained in more random ways than most others. Some are crafted, some are just straight-up money sponges, and others are automatically assigned to new Allied Races.
• Mecha-Mogul Mk2
◦ crafted by engineers. Recipe dropped by Mogul Razdunk in The MOTHERLOAD on Mythic difficulty.
• Great Sea Ray
◦ Fished up in Zandalar and Kul Tiras
• Darkforge Ram

World of Wacraft: Battle for Azeroth PvP Mounts
Following in the footsteps of many that came before, Battle for Azeroth will give PvP combatants many opportunities to acquire some rather unique mounts – Proto-Drakes return!
We already know which of these will feature at the end of PvP season 1, but the other colored variants will likely follow in the seasons to come.
Prestigious Blood Forged Courser
You’ll automatically unlock this armor-clad horse upon reaching Honor Level 500. There’s a big focus on PvP with Battle for Azeroth, so it shouldn’t be too hard to grab this one if you really want it.
We’re already well aware of the Battleground and Arena mounts featured in Battle for Azeroth, but actually unlocking them will still take a while yet as they haven’t actually been released. The following mounts will be traded for a “Vicious Saddle” obtained by winning 100 Arena matches, or 40 Rated Battlegrounds. The choice of which, and which mount, is up to you.
Vicious War Riverbeast
Vicious War Basilisk (Alliance colored)
Vicious War Clefthoof
Vicious War Basilisk (Horde colored)
A long-form PvP mount is the Conquerer’s Scythemaw. This one is simply unlocked through the “Conquerer of Azeroth” achievement. Hitting that, however, is a whole other story.
To unlock the Conquerer of Azeroth achievement and get the Conquerer’s Scythemaw prize, you’ll need to partake in BfA’s ‘War Mode’ World PvP system quite a bit. Follow the quests around each of the Kul Tiras zones and you’ll unlock your achievement and mount.
World of Wacraft: Battle for Azeroth Dungeon Mounts
As with any other World of Warcraft expansion, Battle for Azeroth hides a bunch of mounts within dungeons to incentivize repeated runs and farming parties. These can double up as great reasons to farm your weekly resets, too.
Each of these mounts is expected to only drop from dungeons on the Mythic and Challenge modes, though, so getting them won’t be easy. Their drop rates are likely very low, too. These aren’t faction-specific, so Alliance and Horde members will get to ride some mounts that look like they belong on one side more than another.
Mount: Underrot Crawg
Dungeon: The Underrot
How: Unbound Abomination (drop, Mythic), Challenger’s Cache (Challenge Mode)
How: Harlan Sweete (drop, Mythic), Challenger’s Cache (Challenge Mode)
Mount: Tomb Stalker
Dungeon: Kings’ Rest
How: Kling Dazar (drop, Mythic), Challenger’s Cache (Challenge Mode)
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth Island Expedition Mounts
A few mounts can be earned through the new Island Expedition mode. They’ll no-doubt be a rare sight, but the uniqueness of each should encourage more than a fair share of players to try to earn them. Each Island Expedition awards loot at the end, with each of these mounts capable of dropping in the stash players receive.
• Twilight Avenger
• Surf Jelly
• Qinsho’s Eternal Hound
• Craghorn Chasm-Leaper
World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth World Drop Mounts
Like many other World of Warcraft expansions, some mounts can even drop from regular activity throughout the questing zones. Their drop rates will be astonishingly low, but work hard and you shall receive. Similarly, world bosses found throughout the new zones can drop their own specific mounts, too.
