WoW: Shadowlands - Easy Mounts To Get (2023)

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is a massive expansion where players can learn more about the Underworld ofWoW. While some havegone quickly through the content, like the record holder for the first Shadowlands character to get to the new level cap, some have been taking their time. If new players are looking to cover more ground, they can grab themselves one of the easy-to-get mounts to make travel around the Shadowlands a little easier.

Updated May 14, 2021 by Mina Smith:There are a few new mounts to add to this list now thatShadowlands has been out for some time. This article has also been updated to include new informationand edited a little for clarity.

If players have been out of the loop for RetailWorld of Warcraft or only have a subscription to play WoW Classic's upcoming addition, The Burning Crusade, they may not have a mount in retail. There are two main types of mounts that players can get: walking mounts and those that fly. The flying mounts can really make a difference in how quickly players can move from one end of the world to the other while walking mounts improve walking speed substantially. Either way, players will want their first mount in WoW to be a quick and easy one to grab so they can get moving.

Thisdangerous-looking giantbug comes from the Shadowlands zone of Ardenweald. While not the best-looking of the mounts, it is a guaranteed drop from one of the elites in the area. First, players should head tothe Mistveil Tangle and look for the rare spawnamong theDeranged Guardians ridingBristlecone Terrors.

Shadowlands Mounts: Blanchy's Reins (Sinrunner Blanchy)

This ghost horse isShadowlandsversion of the Westfall horse that was killed during the Cataclysm. Players can find this mount inRevendreth, the setting for the World of Warcraft short Afterlives. This is one ofthe few easy-to-nab mounts that players could feasibly get before level 45. Considering Apprentice Riding only requires level 10, players can get this mount as early as they can survive theShadowlandscontent.

To get this undead horse, players just have to feed it and be nice to it for six days. Every day that players go to visit this undead warhorse, it will ask for something different to eat.

  • Day 1 - 8 Handfuls of Oats (Westfall, near Saldean's Farm)
  • Day 2 - 1 Grooming Brush (Revendreth, talk to Snickersnee)
  • Day 3 - 4 Sturdy Horseshoes (Revendreth, scattered on roads in the southeast part of the map)
  • Day 4 - 1 Empty Water Bucket, filled with Clean Water (Revendreth, Get Clean Water from either Ardenweald or Bastion)
  • Day 5 - 1 Comfortable Saddle Blanket (Revendreth, purchase from Ta'tru)
  • Day 6 - 3 Dredhollow Apples (Revendreth, purchase from Mims)

After giving Blanchy the final apple, players will now have a new mount. Although it's kind of a long process, all the steps are pretty simple. Players should be able to purchase most of these items from the World of Warcraft Auction House or find them lying aroundRevendreth.

First, players just have to find the massiveMushroom, which can drop off of nearly anyenemy inArdenweald. Unfortunately, the mushroom will degrade in 20 real-time minutes, so players have to be able to get to the spawn point and killHumon'gozz relatively quickly. A group of a few friends or guildmates should make this kill swift though;Humon'gozz doesn't have a whole lot of health.

For the most part, those looking to join the Night Fae will most likely complete these anyway, so mostArdenweald players won't have extra to do here. Getting quests done with a chosen covenant is one of thebest things for Shadowlands players to be doing after level 60 anyway.

Next, players need to find a broken Soulweb, which will be located on top of a platform, up a root, at19.8, 63.4. There will be a cart there; players just have to look behind it. Plyers should then bring the broken Soulweb back toElder Gwenna atGlitterfall Basin along with 10 Lightless Silk, and this will fix the Soulweb. Next, players need to askYsera to enchant the Soulweb, which will turn it into a Dream Catcher. This item is needed to see the Night Mare atDreamshrine Basin in the shadow realm. Once acquired, players just have to use it in the Basin, the Night Mare will appear, players have to kill the Night Mare, and finally, this mount will drop.

Players of any of the four new World of Warcraft: Shadowlands covenants can purchase this mount once they have completed some amphitheater battles. For seven days, players need to go to theStar Lake Amphitheatre and fight different rare elites.

The elite of the day will rotate randomly, so players will have to make sure that day's elite isn't one they have already killed. Once players have 5,000 Anima and have defeated seven differentStar Lake Amphitheatre elites, they can purchase the mount fromMaster Clerk Salorn outside of the Amphitheatre. If players are saving their Anima to purchase Shadowlands Renown, though, this may not be the right mount.
