Mounts can be obtained in numerous ways: They can be purchased from vendors, earned through PvP battles, or won as drops from certain bosses. This guide covers all World of Warcraft mounts as of the release of the 2018 Battle for Azeroth expansion. World of Warcraft Racial Mounts The first mount most players purchase is a racial mount, which increases your speed. These become available at level 20 and require the Apprentice riding skill. Racial mounts can be purchased at a vendor near the race's capital city. If you want to purchase a mount from a race other than that of your character, you need to reach exalted reputation with that race's faction. Once you reach level 40 and obtain the Journeyman riding skill, you can purchase an epic ground mount, which increases your speed even more.
