131 of the Easiest Mounts to Collect in WoW

Kaeson The Hitching Post (Mounts) 1 Comment

Mounts – they’re one of the most popular things to collect in World of Warcraft!

With achievements ranging from Stable Keeper all the way to Lord of the Reins, it’s no wonder that collectors will go to the extreme – spending hours upon hours to farm the rarest of mounts. Although farming a coveted new mount for days on end can be fun, this guide will take a different approach by covering 131 of the easiest mounts to collect in game.

We’ve got 56 Alliance-only mounts, 56 Horde-only mounts, and 19 neutral mounts that can be learned by either faction. Each mount listed has a mouse-over tooltip that includes information about level requirements and cost. So whether you’re just starting out or need to add a few more to the collection, these mounts are all very straightforward to obtain and won’t require much work for you to get.

Alliance Only – Racial

Some of the easiest mounts to collect are the racial mounts. Your  racial faction (Stormwind for Humans, Gilneas for Worgen, etc.) will make their mounts available to you as soon as you hit level 20, regardless of your reputation standing. However, other Alliance factions will require you to be exalted until you can purchase their mounts. The simplest way to gain reputation with these factions is by running dungeons while wearing the respective tabard that can be purchased from the racial faction Quartermaster.


Buy your from at (37, 49) in Darnassus. Once exalted, buy the following mounts from at (43, 33) in Darnassus.

Neutral – Dungeons and Raids

There are dozens of mounts that drop from dungeons, but each of the following has a guaranteed or near 100% drop rate which maked them super easy to snag!


The Culling of Stratholme is level 78 dungeon. The entrance can be found inside the Caverns of Time in the southeastern part of Tanaris.

Bronze Drake is a guaranteed drop from the HEROIC version of the dungeon. You must complete up to the last boss, Mal'Ganis, in 25 minutes or less. There is a timer at the top of the screen to help you keep track. Once you get to that point, a special boss called the Infinite Corrupter will spawn. Simply kill it and get your new mount! This should all be extremely simple for max level characters.



Reins of the Bronze Drake

The Obsidiam Sanctum is level 80 raid. The entrance can be found underneath Wyrmrest Temple in the central part of Dragonblight. The raid consists of four drakes - Sartharian and three other drakes that surround him. The following mounts are a 100% drop chance, but you must run in and kill Sartharian (big boss in the middle) while the other three are still alive.

Black Drake has a 100% drop from Sartharion in Normal 10-man mode with all three other drakes up.

Twilight Drake has a 100% drop from Sartharion in Normal 25-man mode with all three other drakes up.



Reins of the Black Drake

Reins of the Twilight Drake

The Temple of Ahn'Quiraj is level 60 outdoor raid. The entrance can be found on the southern border of Silithus. There are two seperate instances that you can enter here - the temple and the ruins, so make sure to bear to the right so you don't end up in the wrong instance! Note that none of the mounts you get here can actually be used outside the instance. So although you'll probably never use them, these are four easy mounts to add to your collection count!

Yellow, Blue, and Green are all rare drops from trash mobs in the instance. You'll most likely be able to obtain all three in one run of the instance.

BONUS MOUNT: Red is an extremely rare drop from trash. This mount will most likely take a few runs to get, but you'll get the Feat of Strength achievement upon completion. Might as well farm it while you're getting the others!

Hi, I’m Kaeson! I enjoy raiding on my worgen hunter and serving as an officer in my guild. In my free time I monkey around with web app development and other programming projects.

  1. This was helpful, thanks Kaeson! Regarding the Pandaren factions, you might link to a source for which dungeons can be farmed for rep. As a level capped adventurer there was nothing intuitive about how to gain rep with this faction (aside from buying the tabard). Anyway great article, thanks for taking the time!
