"The subjugation of a Xorothian Dreadsteed is a true measure of power."
Mor'zul Bloodbringer

The dreadsteed of Xoroth is the level 40 epic warlock ground mount. The Dreadsteed ability is available to learn at level 40 and requires both Journeyman riding skill (from the riding trainer) and the [Felsteed] ability to learn.

Xoroth is the home planet of these fiery, horse-like demons, who serve as the mounts of the Dreadlords. The finest belong to the Nathrezim Dreadlord, Lord Hel'nurath the Stable-keeper.

With [The Codex of Xerrath], the mount changes the color of its flames to green.

Earning the dreadsteed

Removed from game The subject of this section was removed from World of Warcraft in patch 4.0.1.
Main article: Dreadsteed questline

Originally, the dreasteed mount required the completion of an epic quest chain. In patch 2.4.0 the mount was added to class trainers; the quest chain remained available for those who still wanted to complete it until patch 4.0.1, when it was removed entirely.

The questline to obtain the Wrathsteed is similar to the original Dreadsteed questline, with the warlocks once again having to gather materials and summon demons from Xoroth.


  • The Dreadsteed appears as an epic card for the Warlock class in the Grand Tournament expansion of Hearthstone. The flavor text reads: "Crescendo himself summoned this steed, riding it to victory in the Grand Tournament. Wherever he rides, an army of riders ride behind him, supporting the legendary champion."
    • The flavor text references Reddit user Crescendo1909, a Hearthstone fan who had been fighting cancer for half a year prior to the release of the Grand Tournament.
