The racial mounts are given lore on an old Worldofwarcraft.com page.[1] This lore may be taken down at some point.

Alliance mounts Edit

Dwarves Edit

Rams: Distinguished by their shaggy coats and massive horns, Barak Tor'ol mountain rams are simple yet proud animals whose fearlessness is matched only by that of their dwarven masters. While these good-natured animals lack ferocity, they compensate with uncommon durability and strength. The thickness of their fur helps them withstand the biting winds of Khaz Modan and the sharp claws of the mountain beasts that populate the region.

Gnomes Edit

The gnomes' revolutionary mechanostrider represents yet another marvel of their engineering prowess. Each strider is specifically designed with the individual rider in mind. They are constructed using state-of-the-art steam compression, servo-motor dynamics, and duro-steel plating. This offers the rider a reliable and durable means of transportation. Some claim that the mechanostrider's lack of true sentience makes for a very dumb mount. However, the gnomes counter that under a skilled rider, the mechanostrider is more responsive than even the best trained live mount.

The mechanostrider can move at speeds up to 30 mph. This is the one device that gnomes refuse to restructure for their larger allies. All gnome tinkers agree that the striders are only available for small humanoids. Although some goblins have purchased striders for themselves, most of these striders have only proud gnomish passengers.MM&M 194

Night elves Edit

Sabers: Before they were domesticated by the Sentinel Army and trained as mounts, Kalimdor's savage nightsaber panthers were considered to be among the continent's most vicious inhabitants. While many of these grand predatory beasts still prowl the dusky shores and forests of the night elves' homeland, the finest pedigrees of the species, recognized by their superior swiftness and agility, now serve a more practical purpose for those skilled enough to ride them.

Humans Edit

Horses: The strong bond between the humans of Azeroth and their warhorses has existed for generations. However, since the fall of Lordaeron, only select varieties continue to be bred throughout Alliance-controlled lands. Most prized among these are the stately Evendales of Elwynn Forest, renowned for their loyalty and even tempers. These horses command a hefty sum, but they reward their owners with steadiness and speed.

Draenei Edit

Elekk: One of the many creatures the Draenei brought with them to Azeroth. Originally native to the vast plains of Nagrand, many Elekk were tamed by the Draenei due to their similar peaceful and placid nature. However, like their stalwart riders, The Elekk are fierce creatures in battle, charging enemies head on with there massive ivory tusks. The Draenei continue to breed the Elekk on Azuremyst and Bloodmyst isle.

Worgen Edit

Worgen will not have a racial mount, but will instead have Running Wild, in which they take to all fours and travel at mount speed. Cataclysm-Logo-Small

Horde mounts Edit

Orcs Edit

Wolves: Wolves are indigenous to many parts of Azeroth. They live on every known continent and have a wide variety of subspecies and social habits. Although most are hostile towards anyone who trespasses on their territories, a few unique dire wolf packs have befriended the Horde in recent years. These cunning and ferocious creatures have found an especially welcome home among the orcs, who admire their endurance and keen survival instincts.

Undead Edit

Skeletal Horses: Not even the noble steeds that succumbed to the Plague are allowed any rest in the hands of the Forsaken. Through an arcane mix of alchemy and necromancy, the Royal Apothecary Society has raised numerous fallen steeds to serve as mounts for the vengeful dead. These undead steeds are as strong as they were in life, and far more resilient. An unfortunate characteristic, however - one that the Forsaken are none too enamored with is the steeds almost universal stubbornness. From death and beyond, the mighty steeds still cling to the willful spirit that served them in life.

Troll Edit

Raptors: The savage ferocity of Kalimdor's raptors has enthralled the Darkspear trolls since their arrival. They consider a raptor to be the truest form of a hunter, and as such, the tamed Troll Raptor is their mount of choice. A tamed raptor is truly a fearsome beast, as a skilled troll is able to channel the reptilian steed's savagery to suit the rider's will. A tamed raptor is also one of the most auspicious signs of status amongst the trolls; many have died trying to tame these swift and deadly hunter beasts, and to possess one indicates great station.

Tauren Edit

Kodos: There is but one creature in all of Kalimdor that possesses the strength and stamina to bear a tauren rider into battle: the majestic kodo beast. Swifter and slightly smaller than their wild cousins, kodo mounts nevertheless demonstrate the same resilience and fearlessness found in their untamed brethren, traits that serve them well when bearing their equally resolute riders. It is said that only the most virtuous of tauren can win the affection of a kodo war mount, for these mighty beasts only serve those that approach them with honor and respect in their hearts.

Goblin Edit

Trike: A three-wheeled mechanical vehicle similar to the Mekgineer's Chopper and Mechanohog. Like the Gnomish Mechanostrider, the Trike is mechanical by nature. Trikes can be purchased from a vendor in the Goblin Slums of Orgrimmar. The history behind the development of the Trike is unknown at this time. Cataclysm-Logo-Small

Class mountsEdit

Paladin Edit

Possessed of a noble spirit and deceptive intelligence uncommon among its kind, the warhorse is a regal charger that only the most inspiring of paladins can call to service. Once it pledges its service to a worthy master, the warhorse holds to its responsibility as a loyal mount and steadfast companion with a devotion that cannot be found in its lesser cousins. The paladins warhorse is more than a steed; it is a tireless cohort for its valorous master, carrying the paladin across Azeroth on a ceaseless crusade to vanquish evil wherever it may lurk.

  • Warhorse: Looks like a white horse with armor and a blue cloth.
  • Epic Charger: Looks like the Warhorse with golden armor with spikes on the head, a gold/blue cloth, and a golden aura surrounding it and its rider.

Warlock Edit

The remote plains of Desolace were once home to a unique breed of horse too proud and wild to countenance riders. Yet it is precisely this willful conceit that enticed the elders of the Shadow Council to bind these majestic steeds to their service with dark rituals too horrific to perform by any but the most depraved of warlocks. Although they retain their imposing forms, these newly-christened felsteeds have become twisted with infernal energies, treading flames and breathing fire. Where their eyes once shone with exuberance and a zest for life, they now burn with hatred for the warlocks who corrupted them and anguish at the passing of the lives they once knew.

  • Felsteed: looks like a brown horse with flaming eyes and hooves.
  • Epic Dreadsteed looks like the Felsteed with horns and flaming crest.

Other mounts Edit

  • Wintersaber: Available with sufficient reputation with the Wintersaber Trainers faction, these somewhat rare mounts resemble the sabers of the Night Elves.
  • Qiraji Battle Tank: Found only in Ahn'Qiraj, the Qiraji Battle Tanks come in a variety of colors, including Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow. A special, extremely rare Black Battle Tank is reserved only for each server's opener of the Scarab Gate.
