Top 7 Best Ground Mounts

It’s really a shame that the ability to fly anywhere in Azeroth has made ground mounts a little obsolete. There are so many great-looking ground mounts. Here are my favorites:

1. Swift Palomino
Swift PalominoI always wanted a pony. Once I got my druid exalted with Stormwind this is the first mount I bought.

2. Swift Orange Raptor

Swift Orange RaptorWhen I first rolled a Blood Elf, I knew I didn’t want to be riding around on a chocobo…hawkstrider for very long. I did every troll quest I could find so I could buy this much more impressive-looking raptor.

3. Purple Skeletal Warhorse

4. Raven Lord

Raven LordWhat a pain in the ass this mount is. I’ve read so many accounts of people running Sethekk Halls every day for months before this dropped for them. I saw it drop a number of times during random dungeon runs – and it was always won by a Pally. I finally got it completely unexpectedly while doing an achivement for Pilgrim’s Bounty.

5. Amani War Bear

6. Golden KingGolden KingWhat a gorgeous lion mount. I love the big mane and the shiny armor. It’s very fitting for the Alliance.

7. Kor’kron Annihilator
Kor'kron Annihilator
Blizzard really out-did themselves with the two level 25 guild mounts. As much as I love the lion, I think the Horde mount is even better. The Scorpion is huge (especially with a tauren on it) and menacing – and it waves it’s arms in the air when you press the spacebar! Awesome.
