Battle for Azeroth

Battle for Azeroth mounts, listed by model

On this page we present all the exciting new mounts introduced at the start of Battle for Azeroth, listed by model (we're working on a page that presents by source). For your interest we've also included unused colours of those models, and also some completely unused models that were added to the BfA database, in the hope that these appearances will become available in the future. We hope you enjoy!

Parrots

These colourful, but grizzled pirate-parrots even have wooden legs and eye-patches! One is a Mythic/Challenge Mode dungeon drop from Freehold, and the other is from Island Expeditions booty.

Bloodswarmers

These creepy denizens of the swamps of Nazmir have a very Nerubian vibe. One is a reputation purchase with Talanji's Expedition (Horde only) and the other is a random zone drop.

Paladin Rams

A beautifully-detailed new ram model that serves as a paladin mount for Dwarves (Dawnforge) and the new Dark Iron Dwarf allied race (Darkforge). We're unsure if there'll be a separate new mount for the level 40 paladin tier.
