Alliance Warhorse (note: the screenshot was taken before draenei paladins got their own mount)

The Warhorse is a type of horse used by a human paladin as a mount. It is learned automatically at level 10. The epic mount for paladins is called [Summon Charger].

Mount Journal

Trained to stand firm in righteous combat.

Historical information

Since the mount system revamp in patch 1.12.1, the paladin will obtain Apprentice riding skill upon getting the Summon Warhorse spell from the trainer. Since patch 3.2.0, the spell no longer needs mana to summon the warhorse.

The Alliance warhorse is white and has a blue and silver livery, the blood elf mount is black and has a red and brass livery.

Previously, dwarf and human paladins obtained the spell through a quest called A Paladin [40] The Tome of Nobility. This quest consisted of speaking with Duthorian Rall in Stormwind's Cathedral Square. In The Burning Crusade, blood elf paladins obtained their warhorse through a quest called H IconSmall BloodElf Male.pngIconSmall BloodElf Female.png Paladin [40] The Thalassian Warhorse, which consisted in speaking with Knight-Lord Bloodvalor in Silvermoon's Farstriders' Square. This was changed shortly after the release of Burning Crusade when the spell was added as a learnable spell from the paladin trainer. This was presumably to stop the complaints of paladins getting a free mount.

Talent improvements


  • This spell cannot be dispelled, but it can be Counterspelled, locking out the Holy school temporarily.
  • Although it is only trained by human and dwarf paladins, any Alliance paladins are able to freely use this mount.
