Gryphon mounts are the flying mounts for Alliance players. They come in a variety of colors and can also be used for land travel. Until Wrath of the Lich King, these mounts were Alliance only.
- Mount Journal
- They love lions in Stormwind, and the gryphon is half lion. Of course they might not like which half. - Gryphon Master Talonaxe
These mounts require Expert flying (costs 250 to train) and cost 50 each. Faction reputation discounts apply to reduce the price.
A player may purchase these mounts from:
- Mount Journal
- The Horde had dragons, we had the gryphons. We won that war. - Ilsa Blusterbrew
These mounts cost 100 each, and are available from the same vendors as the Expert mounts above. Again, faction reputation discounts apply.
Armored Snowy Gryphon
This mount is only available from Mei Francis in Dalaran, and only purchasable by the Alliance. She charges 2000 for it, but faction discount does apply from the Kirin Tor. The Horde equivalent is the [Armored Blue Wind Rider].
Scroll of Resurrection
The [Spectral Gryphon] mount is the Alliance-side reward for when an inactive player accepted your Scroll of Resurrection and subscribed to World of Warcraft for at least 30 days. This reward became first available on March 6, 2012.
The [Loaned Gryphon Reins] is a special flying mount purchased for free from "Honest" Max outside of K3 in Storm Peaks. It is available to players who are level 77 or higher and have not purchased [Cold Weather Flying], and it can only be used in Sholazar Basin, Storm Peaks, and Icecrown.
The [Grand Gryphon] is a reward from completing  The Silence, the final part in the Operation: Shieldwall questline.
Grand Armored Gryphon
The [Grand Armored Gryphon] is purchased for 2000 from Agent Malley in Krasarang Wilds. You must be exalted with Operation: Shieldwall to buy it.
Winged Steed of the Ebon Blade
The [Winged Steed of the Ebon Blade] is purchased for 1000 from Dread Commander Thalanor at Acherus: The Ebon Hold in the Eastern Plaguelands. It is the only gryphon mount available to Horde players.
