Rep and Quest Mounts

By

Achievement Ground Mounts
Some mounts can be acquired through the Achievement system that was introduced just prior to the Wrath of the Lich King expansion.

Reputation Reward Ground Mounts
Reputation rewards give you an alternative to standard ground mounts if you want transportation that looks a little different. Earning reputation with certain factions allows you to purchase special items from vendors associated with that faction.

Dalaran Vendor Mounts
Mei Francis, the exotic mount vendor in Dalaran, has several ground mounts for sale. The Wooly Mammoth requires Marks of Heroism rather than gold, and the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth has special features that make it very expensive.

Alliance Horde

Loot/Quest Ground Mounts
Some of the bosses and quests in World of Warcraft can also yield mounts. These mounts tend to be relatively rare, as there is only a chance that a defeated boss will drop one.

Crafted Ground Mounts
Some mounts can be crafted by characters with the engineering and tailoring professions. Most of them are flying mounts usable only by those with a high enough skill in one of those professions, but these ground mounts are also available. They require Journeyman or higher riding skill.

Argent Tournament Mounts
Argent Tournament mounts can be earned by completing Argent Tournament quests in Icecrown, Northrend. These quests award Champion's Seals that can be used, along with gold, to purchase these mounts. The amount of gold needed can be reduced with reputation.
