Upcoming Mount Changes

Upcoming Mount Changes -

In an announcement on the official World of Warcraft forums Blizzard developer, Zarhym, brings news of some pretty hefty upcoming changes to mounts in Azeroth.

For example, your first mount is normally available at Level 30 with a training cost of 35 gold, and a mount cost of 10 gold. In Patch 3.2, your first mount will be available at Level 20, with the training requiring a paltry 4 gold, and the mount itself only setting you back 1 gold. These changes should definitely cut down on the need for players to farm gold in order to afford their mounts.

In the next major content patch, we intend to adjust mount requirements to further improve the leveling experience in World of Warcraft. In addition, cast times for summoning all mounts will be reduced to 1.5 seconds, down from 3 seconds. The following is a breakdown of the upcoming cost and level requirement changes we are making for each riding skill.

* Apprentice Riding (Skill 75)

o 60% land mount speed
o Requires level 20
o Cost: 4 gold
o Mount cost: 1 gold
o Mail will be sent to players at level 20 guiding them to the riding trainer

* Journeyman Riding (Skill 150)

o 100% land mount speed
o Requires level 40
o Cost: 50 gold
o Mount cost: 10 gold
o Mail will be sent to players at level 40 guiding them back to the riding trainer
