'''Mounts''' are a much sought after form of transportation in which players ride atop the backs of various more or less exotic beasts (or machines). They can be accessed via the [[Mounts and Pets window]]. [[Warlock]]s, [[paladin]]s and [[death knight]]s can learn to summon mounts as a class perk. The [[Alliance]] [[Worgen]] have a race skill [[Running Wild]] that they will get at level 20. [[Druid]]s can shape shift into multiple forms that improve their speed. Mounted travel is almost always faster than walking/running (some vanity mounts such as [[Sea Turtle (mount)|Sea Turtle]] provide no speed benefit on the ground). {{bc-inline}} [[World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade|''The Burning Crusade'']] introduced [[flying]] mounts in select areas, which further increased the maximum possible player movement speed. {{cata-inline}} [[World of Warcraft: Cataclysm|''Cataclysm'']] opened up much of [[Azeroth]] to flying mounts.

'''Mounts''' are a much sought form of transportation in which players ride atop the backs of various more or less exotic beasts (or machinations). They can be accessed via the [[Mounts and Pets window]]. [[Warlock]]s, [[paladin]]s and [[death knight]]s can learn to summon mounts as a class perk. The [[Alliance]] [[Worgen]] have a race skill [[Running Wild]] that they will get at level 20. [[Druid]]s can shape shift into multiple forms that improve their speed.

Mounts were generally expensive in the past, but their prices have been reduced while the training to ride them increased in order to compensate. However, some mounts do not cost any gold or other currencies (such as [[honor point]]s) and will drop at very low drop rates from bosses in instances such as [[Stratholme]], [[Zul'Gurub]], [[Eye (Tempest Keep)|Tempest Keep]], [[Magisters' Terrace]], [[Sethekk Halls]], [[Karazhan]], and [[Utgarde Pinnacle]]. There are numerous other methods to obtain mounts as well, such as class quests, completing [[achievement]]s, and even a select few rare spawns drop mounts.

At level 40, paladins and warlocks can learn {{ability|Summon Charger}} and {{ability|Dreadsteed}} from their class trainers after learning the Journeyman riding skill from the riding trainer. There is no need to purchase a new mount. [[Death knight]]s receive their epic ground mount, the {{ability|Acherus Deathcharger (ability)|Acherus Deathcharger}}, after the completion of the quests {{quest|Grand Theft Palomino}} and {{quest|Into the Realm of Shadows}} at level 55. Druids can learn {{ability|Flight Form}} from any flight trainer at level 58.

===Unlocking Flight in Specific Areas===
In areas where flying is allowed, a character typically needs to train a specific {{proflink|icon=|Riding}} skill in order to unlock the ability to fly in that region. These types of skills and their requirements can be found in the table below.

There are four classes in the game that can acquire special mounts and abilities linked to their own class through lore: [[death knight]]s, [[druid]]s, [[paladin]]s, and [[warlock]]s. The original quests to gain the paladin charger, warlock dreadsteed, and druid's swift flight form are all still in-game and reward feats of strength if they are completed. The aforementioned quests are not required to learn the ability, however, and are on the class trainers at the level listed in the table.

Druid and paladin abilities are slightly different based on race and faction. For example, the Alliance charger is blue and golden, while the Horde version is red and bronze. Similarly, night elf druids are black in flight form, while tauren are tan. With [[World of Warcraft: Cataclysm|''Cataclysm'']], it seems that [[tauren]] and [[draenei]] paladins will not be getting chargers, but special types of Kodo and Elekk mounts, respectively.<ref>[http://blue.mmo-champion.com/topic/3003/tauren-paladin-lvl20-40-mounts#post23 Tauren Paladin lvl20/40 mounts] #23 by [http://blue.mmo-champion.com/author/Kisirani/ Kisirani] - 2009/09/19 04:04:43 AM </ref><ref>[http://blue.mmo-champion.com/topic/158268/pally-mounts#post2 Pally Mounts] #2 by [http://blue.mmo-champion.com/author/Vrakthris/ Vrakthris] - 2011/02/14 11:58:46 PM </ref>

At [[BlizzCon 2009]] it was revealed that flying mounts would be available in some form to use in [[Kalimdor]] and the [[Eastern Kingdoms]] with the release of the next expansion, titled "Cataclysm". Blizzard officials had previously stated that it was unlikely that they would allow flying mounts in these continents, since doing so would require them to re-design the continents with flying mounts in mind.

Throughout the first few years of ''World of Warcraft'' (up to and including [[World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King|''Wrath of the Lich King'']]), the [[Eastern Kingdoms]] and [[Kalimdor]] were unsuitable for flying mounts; there were visual glitches like mountains and high buildings whose tops could not be seen from ground-level, and places where the terrain abruptly changed from one tileset to another, creating a grossly unrealistic appearance in some areas. There were also zones which should have existed lore-wise, but were empty and unfinished.
