Mounts (OMG so many mounts)

I’ve lost track of where I left off with my blabbering about my journey towards Mountacular, so I’ll just recap what I can recall. Perhaps I’ll remember moving forward. Or not. Who knows?

I started the Argent Tournament and figured out that 5 mounts can be added to a faction in as little as 2 days.

I know, I know. “Argent Tournament is sooooo 3 x-packs ago.” Well, I never jumped onto the AT bandwagon in Wrath. I remember the jousting in Trial of the Champion and decided I wanted none of that. I never checked into the soloability of it after Cata, I’d just written the instances and the whole Argent Tournament off as a “not gonna happen” sort of affair.

I digress. Back to 5 mounts, 2 days. All that needs to happen is run 1 of each race (races available during WotLK, no goblins, no worgen, and no pandas) through Trial of the Champion heroic dungeon 2 days in a row this will net you 6 Champion’s Seals. Then you have those toons talk to their race’s quarter master in the faction tent at the tournament grounds. For 5  Champion’s Seals and 500 gold, you’ll get a racial mount. That’s it. 5 mounts in 2 days. These mounts don’t count cross-faction, so if you want the cross-faction equivalent, you’ll need to do the 2 instance runs on 5 toons of the other faction too.

Make sure that one of the toons that you do the Argent Tournament grind on is a Paladin. There is a Paladin-only mount to be obtained.

In addition to sticking my head in the sands of Argent Tournament, I’ve been grinding gold and farming instances to knock out a few more mounts as well.

  • Swift White Hawkstrider (No more Kael’thas Sunstrider monologues to listen to, WOOT!)
  • Jeweled Onyx Panther (found one on the AH for about the price of the orbs needed to make it)
  • Cindermane Charger (I gifted a friend the WoW battle chest and 2 time cards. I’m hoping he likes playing, because his schedule is similar to mine. Real-life friends in Azeroth rock.)
  • 2 or 3 PVP mounts from the Honor vendor (I don’t remember which ones specifically.)

I’m sure I’m missing a few more that I’ve farmed out in the past month or so.  I’m closing in on Mountacular though. Only 10 more mounts until I’m there.

  1. Ten more mounts is sooo close. Good luck, lol.
    I notice that Argent Tourney pets are often sold on the BMAH — maybe I’d better start selling Enchanted Brooms (thanks a lot, buddy).

  2. I’ve been grinding Argent Tournament from scratch for 5 months already. I simply hate it now 🙂
    Charged a Gnome Mage (my main), a Goblin Hunter (easier for dailies) and a Blood Elf Paladin – because Paladin.

    Dungeon Run + all the dailies give you 17 tokens a day.

    So far Argent Tounament offers this much mounts:

    2 from Argent tent + 1 for Paladin also there
    10 per A/H faction (2 for each race) – makes it +20.
    2 per Argent faction (shared – as you buy them for Alliance, you learn them for Horde too, but they are different).
    1 shared hippogryph.

    So, it’s 26 or 28 mounts to be obtained.

    Thank God only pets are left for me.

    1. I was feeling ambitious when I started it. Thinking I’d run one of each race through every day. That didn’t last long.

      I agree, that place gets old quick.
