Swift Hawkstrider TCG.jpg

“Swift, nimble, and elegant - the perfect mount to represent the Blood Elves.”

Swift Hawkstrider

Hawkstrider mounts are almost exclusively Horde only mounts.

Factional mounts: Apprentice

You can purchase these mounts from Horde Winaestra <Hawkstrider Breeder> at Thuron's Livery in Eversong Woods so long as your character has riding skill of 75 (obtainable at level 20). If you are playing as any race other than a blood elf, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with the Silvermoon City.

Factional mounts: Journeyman

You can purchase these mounts from Winaestra so long as your character has riding skill of 150 (obtainable at level 40), and are restricted similarly to the apprentice mounts above.

Hawkstriders as loot
