wow paladin icon Paladin Epic Mount

Posted by Khor | 7/21/2009

*Note: Patch 3.2 will be changing the whole riding system, so save your gold until 3.2 goes live!

The Paladin epic mount quest is no longer the only way to get the Charger mount. I, for one, am relieved, because that quest line takes a good chunk out of your time to complete it. Not to mention having to find a person (Level 70+) or group to help you. Now it can be simply bought from the Paladin trainers, with the additional purchase of Journeyman riding from a riding trainer.

3.2 Mount Changes

*Faction discounts now apply to all riding training.

Apprentice Riding (Skill 75)

60% land mount speed
Requires level 20
Cost: 4 gold
Mount cost: 1 gold

Journeyman Riding (Skill 150)

100% land mount speed
Requires level 40

Mount cost: 10 gold

Expert Riding (Skill 225)

150% flying mount speed; 60% land mount speed

Artisan Riding (Skill 300)

280% flying mount speed; 100% land mount speed
Requires level 70

Mount Cost: 100 gold

Purchasing Your Charger (Pre-Patch 3.2)

The Charger spell is available to Paladins at level 61. It's cost is 20g. However, you must have the Journeyman riding skill, which costs 600g without any faction discounts. With faction discounts, the cost drops to:

  • Friendly - 570g
  • Honored - 540g
  • Revered - 510g
  • Exalted - 480g
Most players should have no problem being at exalted with their home city if they stick to leveling by questing.

That's it, simple as that!

Questing For Your Charger

The quest lines and charger mount rewards are still intact, and can be completed at level 60. This is now considered the alternative method now, as the ease of dropping 500g or so is an instant acquisition. Nonetheless, here are the quest chains for both Alliance and Horde:
