  • Felsteed
  • Increases ground speed by 60%/100%.

Felsteeds are summonable rare warlock mounts and the name of the spell to summon this mount. Unlike the epic [Dreadsteed] you do not need to have the riding skill trained in order to learn/use this mount, so once you learn the spell, you have the training.

With [The Codex of Xerrath] the mount changes the color of its flames to green.
