Apprentice: Level 20

Apprentice riding skill (75) costs 4Gold for training and an additional 1Gold for each mount, both reduced by the appropriate reputation discounts. These mounts have a 60% riding speed.

At level 20, warlocks and paladins can learn the spells [Summon Felsteed] and [Summon Warhorse] at the cost of 1Gold from their class trainers, which grants them apprentice riding skill.

Journeyman: Level 40

Journeyman riding skill (150) costs 50Gold for training and an additional 10Gold for each mount, both reduced by the appropriate reputation discounts. These mounts have a 100% riding speed.

At level 40, paladins and warlocks can learn [Summon Charger] and [Dreadsteed] from their class trainers after learning the Journeyman riding skill from the riding trainer. There is no need to purchase a new mount. Death knights receive their epic ground mount, the [Acherus Deathcharger], after the completion of the quests Grand Theft Palomino and Into the Realm of Shadows at level 55.

Ground mounts Edit

Racial mounts Edit

Racial land mounts are typically the first mounts players will acquire. To purchase a racial land mount, players must either purchase their race's mount (such as horses for humans, or wolves for orcs), or gain exalted standing with that race's representative faction (such as exalted with Darnassus to purchase sabers). Flying mounts do not require any reputation rating.

In Cataclysm-Logo-Small Cataclysm, the worgen do not get a racial mount, but instead use the ability [Running Wild] to achieve mount-like speeds.
