Cataclysm Mount Guide

Heads up collectors! As I'm sure you've already noticed, the Cataclysm expansion added tons of awesome stuff to the World of Warcraft - including many new riding mounts available to fill your stables! Even if you've already got a Mountain o' Mounts, there's bound to be something you'll like in the 20+ mounts added with this latest expansion!

I've written up a guide for you guys on how to find, earn or otherwise acquire all of the new Cataclysm mounts! I mean, c'mon, look at some of these mounts - you know you want 'em!




Check out the fully detailed guide, including a list of all of the new mounts and detailed information on how to get them, after the break!

Kor'kron Annihilator or Golden King

Taught by Reins of the Kor'kron Annihilator or Reins of the Golden King
Purchasable for 1,500 upon guild reaching Guild Level 25 or Guild Level 25 and player reaching Exalted with guild
Ground mount
These bad boys are pretty awesome, but you're in for a hell of a grind - obtaining your faction's mount will require your guild to reach level 25, which is the maximum level at this time. In addition, a player must first be Exalted with their guild before being allowed to purchase the mount. You can find out more on guild leveling and reputation gain in our Cataclysm Guide.

Many players assume guild leveling to be easy, as guilds are easily reaching their daily cap in a matter of hours due to the current abundance of players leveling up new characters and completing quests and killing bosses. While many guilds may continue to hit their experience cap over the course of the next few months, it's important to note that the experience required for guild levels does increase with every level. The math being done suggests that it will take 137 days (or 4.5 months) of hitting your guild's daily experience cap in order to reach guild level 25! Grind, baby, grind! :D :Green;:

" Ground mount

See, now you can ride your bug mount outside of AQ40 - well, sorta! This lil' guy is the spitting image of the Blue Qiraji Battle Tank and is available to talented archaeologists
who are lucky enough to find fragments of
Scepter of Azj'Aqir
! Upon surveying at a Tol'vir digsite, you have a chance to randomly discover this rare artifact and must collect
enough Tol'vir Archaeology Fragment (150) to complete the project. Thankfully, this artifact has three keystone slots which means you can use 3 Tol'vir Hieroglyphic towards completion of the artifact,
which counts as a whopping 36 Tol'vir Archaeology Fragment! Upon assembling the project you will create a Scepter of Azj'Aqir!

Dark Phoenix
Taught by Reins of the Dark Phoenix
Available to be purchased for 3,000 after completion of the guild achievement Guild Glory of the Cataclysm Raider
Flying mount
This amazing new mount requires completion of the guild achievement Guild Glory of the Cataclysm Raider, which requires you to clear Blackwing Descent, Throne of the Four Winds and
The Bastion of Twilight while in a guild group. In order to qualify and receive credit for these objectives, your raid must be comprised of at least 8/10 or 20/25 guild members. You can tell that you are in a group that qualifies for guild achievements by checking for your guild tabard up near your minimap. Upon completion the achievement, you will be able to purchase this mount from your faction's guild vendor.

I'm not gonna lie - this bad boy seems a lot easier to get that the aforementioned Drake of the East Wind, and is even (technically) easier to get than his cousin the Ashes of A'lar, since it does not require any special achievements or even the Heroic difficulty modes of the bosses. However, it will prove to be challenging for players without a guild, so get out and meet some people!

Fossilized Raptor
Learned by Fossilized Raptor

Upon surveying at a fossil digsite, you have a chance to randomly discover this rare artifact and must collect enough Fossil Archaeology Fragment (100) to complete the project. Upon assembling the project you will create a Fossilized Raptor!
