Horse mounts are largely Alliance only mounts. Horse mounts, in this case, also includes those that are embodiments of spirits (Paladin's Chargers, Death Knight's Deathchargers).

Stormwind Horse Breeders Quotes

Neutral non-human
Sorry, but I am not disposed to sell horses to any individual who is not considered to be at least exalted to the Kingdom of Stormwind. These steeds are the finest you'll find anywhere, and we certainly wouldn't want them in the hands of our enemies.
Not saying you're an enemy, of course... just earn the trust of Stormwind and then we can do business.
Friendly and above non-human
Years of quality breeding techniques and plenty of care allow me the privilege of showing you these horses! Please, take your time as you consider them for your mount. A horse is a companion for the ages, friend. Don't sell yourself short - get your steed here today!

Factional mounts: Apprentice

You can purchase these mounts from several vendors:

You must have riding skill of 75 (obtainable at level 20). If you are playing as any race other than a human, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with Stormwind City.

Factional mounts: Journeyman

You can purchase these mounts from Katie Hunter, Katie Stokx or Gregor MacVince, so long as your character has riding skill of 150 (obtainable at level 40). They are reputation restricted like the apprentice mounts.

Gilneas Mountain Horses

In addition to the horses of Stormwind, patch 4.3.0 brought about two new horses for the people of Gilneas, purchasable from Alliance Astrid Langstrump <Mountain Horse Handler> in Darnassus, just outside the Howling Oak. If you are playing as any race other than worgen, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with Gilneas.

These horses have several differences from that of the Stormwind horse mounts. Mountain horses are slightly larger than the other horse mounts, and do not rear up and neigh for their mount special. Instead, mountain horses lean down to graze. They do not have saddles, and have slightly touched up model skins.

The Mountain Horse and Swift Mountain Horse are sold for 1g and 10g respectively.

Class specific mounts

Death knights and paladins are all able to gain mounts specific to their class (and for paladins, faction).

Death knights

[Acherus Deathcharger] is earned upon completion of the quest N Death Knight [55] Into The Realm of Shadows.

 [Reins of the Crimson Deathcharger] is a reward from N [80] Mograine's Reunion. This quest is at the end of the  [Shadowmourne] questline.


Human, dwarf, and blood elf paladins gain the ability to summon a warhorse (apprentice level mount) at level 20, and a Charger (Journeyman level mount) at level 40. (Draenei and tauren paladins get different mounts.)

Paladins of all races are able to acquire additional mounts:

Argent Charger through the Argent Tournament once they reach the rank of <Crusader>.

Highlord's Golden Charger from N Paladin [110] Stirring in the Shadows.

Highlord's Valorous, Vengeful and Vigilant Chargers can be bought once [Power Ascended] (and the quest mount) is achieved for Holy, Retribution and Protection specializations respectively. Crusader Lord Dalfors sells them for 1000Order Resources each.

Other Horse mounts


The Black War Steed is available from Alliance Lieutenant Karter <War Mount Quartermaster> in Stormwind for 15 Marks of Honor. This is a slight variant on an older Black War Steed mount.

Players Exalted with Baradin's Wardens can buy the Spectral Steed from Alliance Quartermaster Brazie <Baradin's Wardens Quartermaster> at Tol Barad Peninsula for 165 Tol Barad Commendation.

Completing any of the Veteran of the Alliance Achievements will send you the Vicious War Steed via mail from King Varian Wrynn.

Argent Tournament

A number of different horses can be purchased from the Argent Tournament, each with different requirements.

The human quartermaster to the Argent Tournament offers the Swift Gray Steed and the Stormwind Steed. You must have completed Alliance [Champion of Stormwind] or be a human to gain access to this quartermaster.

The high elves offer a Quel'dorei Steed through their quartermaster to anyone who is exalted with The Silver Covenant.

Dame Evniki Kapsalis offers the Argent Warhorse to people who have attained the rank of <Crusader>. As noted previously, she also offers the Argent Charger to Paladins with that title.
