Getting your first mount is one of the best feelings in the World of Warcraft! It is one of the most crucial parts of the leveling process and helps tremendously with getting around the world. With the launch of Burning Crusade Classic, that brings up a lot of questions about how much your mount will cost and what the level requirements will be to ride it. Today I wanted to spend some time answering all of your questions regarding mount prices, speeds and level requirements.
Slow Ground Mount
Your first mount can be bought at level 30 in Burning Crusade Classic. This was an interesting decision because previously this level requirement wasn’t lowered until the end of the Burning Crusade expansion.
This Mount is typically called your “slow mount” because it only adds an extra 60% movement speed instead of the 100% that the “fast ground mount” adds. While it is the “slow mount” it will feel amazing when you are no longer walking!
The riding skill to use the slow mount will cost 35 gold (before any faction discounts) and require level 30. The mount itself will cost an additional 9 gold.
Fast Ground Mount
Your next mount can be bought at level 60 in the Burning Crusade expansion. This new mount is a huge improvement over the much slower first ground mount.
This mount gives you an extra 100% movement speed and is a lot of fun to ride!
The riding skill to use the fast mount will cost 600 gold before any reputation-based discounts. The Journeyman riding skill will require you to be level 60. The bulk of the price will be in the riding skill but the mount itself will cost an additional 90 gold.
Slow Flying Mount
Your next mount will be the slow flying mount. This mount only adds an additional 60% movement speed. To learn Expert Riding which is required to ride this mount you will need to be level 70. The only exception to this will be Druids. Druids can slow fly at level 68 when they get flight form.
Expert Riding will cost 800 gold and then you will need to spend an additional 100 gold to buy the mount. This sounds like a pricey endeavor for a slow mount but it is well worth it.
This mount will allow you to farm the elemental plateau and do additional daily quests. The mount can also help you get to places quicker because you can fly over obstacles and go in a straight line.
Fast Flying Mount
Alright, so you have saved up your 5000 gold and are ready to party with the big boys and girls. This is the big one! Once you unlock Artisan Riding you are ready to spend an additional 200 gold to buy a fast flying mount and own the skys!
This fast flying mount moves at 280% movement speed and soars through the sky! This mount is well worth the investment if you can gather up the gold but 5200 gold isn’t the easiest thing in the world to come by.
