There are several dozen mounts in WoW Classic. Every race has their own, but if you get bored of those, you can use mounts from other races as well. There are some restrictions, but most of them are on the table. However, you’ll have to work long and hard before you earn the right to buy a mount from another race. This guide will show you how to get mounts from other races in WoW Classic.
How to buy mounts from other races?
First of all, you have to keep in mind there are some race restrictions in place. Tauren can only ride Kodos and Wolves, so don’t waste time trying to get a Skeleton Horse as one. Also, Mechanostriders are only usable by gnomes and dwarves. Aside from that, all the mounts from your faction (as well as neutral ones) are fair game.
In order to buy mounts from another race’s vendor, you have to reach exalted reputation rank with said race. This is a hell of an undertaking, which will take a lot of time and effort. Your best bet would be to plan ahead. As soon as you start your character, head into one of the bigger cities that’s controlled by the race you want to rank up with. Do all the quests you can find there – most of them will increase your reputation. Faction-related quests you undertake in the area will also contribute.
You need to do this as soon as possible, because the amount of reputation you get from a quest depends on your level. Always aim for quests that are between green and red, and avoid gray ones if you can – they will give you the lowest reputation rewards. You can also donate runecloth to the quartermaster in the area – this yields reputation and is repeatable.
Here’s a list of races and areas on which you should focus if you want their mounts:
- Orc, Troll: Orgrimmar
- Tauren: Thunderbluff
- Undead: Undercity
- Human: Stormwind
- Night Elf: Darnassus
- Dwarf, Gnome: Ironforge
