Horse mounts are largely Alliance only mounts. Horse mounts, in this case, also includes those that are embodiments of spirits (Paladin's Chargers, Death Knight's Deathchargers).

Factional mounts: Apprentice

You can purchase these mounts from several vendors:

You must have riding skill of 75 (obtainable at level 20). If you are playing as any race other than a human, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with Stormwind City.

Factional mounts: Journeyman

You can purchase these mounts from Katie Hunter, Katie Stokx or Gregor MacVince, so long as your character has riding skill of 150 (obtainable at level 40). They are reputation restricted like the apprentice mounts.

Original epic mounts

These used the old epic mount graphics and as of Patch 1.4 are no longer obtainable.

Gilneas mountain horses

In addition to the horses of Stormwind, patch 4.3.0 brought about two new horses for the people of Gilneas, purchasable from Alliance Astrid Langstrump <Mountain Horse Handler> in Darnassus, just outside the Howling Oak. If you are playing as any race other than worgen, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with Gilneas.

These horses have several differences from that of the Stormwind horse mounts. Originally, mountain horses were slightly larger than the other horse mounts, and did not rear up and neigh for their mount special. Instead, mountain horses leaned down to graze. They do not have saddles, and had slightly touched up model skins. This was changed with the launch of Battle for Azeroth, where the Mountain Horse model was completely swapped from the original unsaddled horses to the new high definition horse models without saddles. They are still slightly larger than other horses and do not neigh.

Class specific mounts

Death knights, paladins and warlocks are all able to gain mounts specific to their class (and for paladins, faction).

Death knights

[Acherus Deathcharger] is earned upon completion of the quest N Death Knight [8-30] Into The Realm of Shadows.


Human and blood elf paladins gain the ability to summon a warhorse (apprentice level mount) at level 20, and a Charger (Journeyman level mount) at level 40. (Draenei, dwarves, tauren, and Zandalari troll paladins get different mounts.)

Paladins of all races are able to acquire additional mounts:

Argent Charger through the Argent Tournament once they reach the rank of <Crusader>.

Highlord's Golden Charger from N Paladin [45] Stirring in the Shadows.

Highlord's Valorous, Vengeful and Vigilant Chargers can be bought once  [Power Ascended] (and the quest mount) is achieved for Holy, Retribution and Protection specializations respectively. Crusader Lord Dalfors sells them for 1000 Order Resources each.

Stormwind horse breeders quotes

Neutral non-human
Sorry, but I am not disposed to sell horses to any individual who is not considered to be at least exalted to the Kingdom of Stormwind. These steeds are the finest you'll find anywhere, and we certainly wouldn't want them in the hands of our enemies.
Not saying you're an enemy, of course... just earn the trust of Stormwind and then we can do business.
Friendly and above non-human
Years of quality breeding techniques and plenty of care allow me the privilege of showing you these horses! Please, take your time as you consider them for your mount. A horse is a companion for the ages, friend. Don't sell yourself short - get your steed here today!
