Easiest mounts to farm in World of Warcraft

Not every mount has to be a pain to farm.

Farming mounts in World of Warcraft is one of the game’s best ways to pass time. Whether you’re a seasoned mount collector or a newer player looking to add some of WoW’s easier-to-get mounts to your collection, there will be a mount for you to pursue.

Here are some of the simplest mounts to obtain in World of Warcraft.

Easiest mounts to get in WoW

Raven Lord

The Sethekk Halls dungeon in Terokkar Forest has an extra boss on Heroic difficulty. That boss, Anzu, is sandwiched between the first and final encounters of the instance and is going to be your target if the historic Raven Lord mount is your goal. The dungeon is easily clearable and Anzu can be reached relatively quickly if you play a high-mobility class.

The second boss of the Return to Karazhan dungeon, Attumen the Huntsman, drops Midnight, an updated version of one of WoW’s most timeless mounts, the Fiery Warhorse. Since Attumen is only the second boss of the dungeon, he can easily be farmed over and over quickly by multiple characters. Plus, you can head over to the original Karazhan raid right next door after farming for Midnight to obtain the original Fiery Warhorse.

Twilight Drake

This mount is a guaranteed drop from Sartharion in the Obsidian Sanctum as long as the other drakes, in the instance, remain alive when the boss goes down. When the Obsidian Sanctum was current content, earning this mount was a near-impossible task. Right now, though, it’s as easy as walking into the raid, one-shotting Sartharion and ignoring every enemy.

Blue Drake

Dropped by Malygos in the Eye of Eternity raid on 10-player or 25-player difficulty, the Blue Drake is one of the more common raid-dropped mounts in WoW. It is far more common than the other drake that drops in the Eye of Eternity, the Azure Drake.

Players can breeze through Icecrown Citadel on 25-player Heroic mode to have a chance at Invincible. While the undead horse’s drop rate is still relatively low, you can dedicate multiple characters on your account to work their way through the raid easily to eventually obtain one of WoW’s most infamous mounts.

Tip: If you are looking for a time saver…

The Shimmermist Runner is a majestic mount found in the Shadowlands. The best point is that it only takes around five minutes to acquire. Head down to Ardenweald and enter the maze of Tirna Scythe. Defeat the mob at the end of the maze, and the horse is yours.

Best Mounts to Farm Solo in WoW

Garn Nighthowl

Nok-Karosh, a rare mob on the far western end of Frostfire Ridge, is guaranteed to drop the Garn Nighthowl wolf mount. One of the only mounts with a 100-percent drop chance, Garn Nighthowl is easily one of the quickest and simplest mounts to obtain in the game.  

Experiment 12-B

Dropped by Ultraxion in the Dragon Soul raid, Experiment 12-B has one of the prettiest color schemes of all of WoW’s original drakes. Its unique pink-and-gold look makes the mount worth farming. Plus, since the boss needed for the mount is encountered relatively early in the raid, it doesn’t take much time to farm several attempts. 

Bronze Drake

The Infinite Corruptor boss in The Culling of Stratholme drops this mount. We like it for how easy it is to acquire solo. It has a nice bronze coloring and looks suitable for a dragon mount. It takes little time, but with the proper strategy, it doesn’t take long.

So, there you have it. You now know everything you need about the easiest mounts to farm in WoW.
