World of Warcraft has over 600 mounts to collect from the latest Shadowlands expansion. This ignores mounts that are not obtainable or mounts that you can only obtain from the Black Market auction house or from third-party vendors. In other words, over 600 regular mounts in the game. If you're new to WoW Shadowlands and want to start collecting mounts now, you've got a long way to go, but acquiring most, if not all, is not an impossible task if you put in enough time and effort. . Especially since a good portion of these mounts are pretty easy to get.
If you have a good amount of gold, you can easily buy around 25 mounts from various in-game vendors directly. In this article, we take a look at the 10 most expensive. It's worth noting that these mounts have no reputation, race, or class requirements. In most cases, all you really need is gold. We also do not include auction house mounts.
Since all these mounts are quite expensive, we recommend you to buy wow goldclick herefrom a reputable site like LootWowGold to speed up the process. Otherwise, you would have to struggle for months to pay them all off. Let's start with some of the cheaper ones and work our way up from there.

10. Reins of the Woolly Mammoth - 10,000 gold
Mammut-ReittiereThey were introduced in Wrath of the Lich King and there are a few different variants to choose from. Only two of them can be bought directly with gold. You can get the Reins of Mel Francis' Woolly Mammoth in the Northrend version of Dalaran for the low price of 10,000 gold. Even better, if you're Exalted with the Kirin Tor, the price drops to just 8,000 gold. A real bargain for such an iconic frame.
9. Felsentusk Boar - 10,000 gold
Also for 10,000 gold, albeit without discounts this time, we have the Rocktusk Battleboar. There are many other WoW mounts that look similar to this one, so overall the Rocktusk Battleboar isn't all that special. However, it is by far the easiest to get as there are no reputation requirements and no chance to spawn. Just go to your Garrison in Warlords of Draenor and find Trader Araanda if you are Alliance or Trader Darakk if you are Horde and get the mount.
8. Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth - 20,000 gold
Next we have the second gigantic mount on this list, and by far the most useful. Similar to the Woolly Mammoth, you can easily obtain the Tundra Mammoth's Reins from Traveler Mel Francis in Old Dalaran. This one costs double that at 20,000 gold, but you can drop the price down to 16,000 if you're exalted with the Kirin Tor. But honestly, even 20,000 is dirt cheap in WoW Shadowlands and well worth the price as the mount can hold up to 3 players and comes complete with two vendors including one you can use to repair your gear. Arguably the most useful mount in the game at this price point.
7. Wintercliff Stomper - 20,000 gold
The Cliffbreaker Winter SkinIt's not quite as useful as the previous mount on our list, but its size is just as impressive. Like the Rocktusk Battleboar, this one is available from your Garrison merchant and has no special requirements. In Warlords of Draenor, when the Winterfell Crag Stomp was introduced, it was considered one of the more expensive WoW mounts that didn't have any interesting features. However, it's still not as expensive as the next mount on our list.
6. Wallowriver-Mooshaut – 50.000 Gold
Mosshide Riverwallow is quite a controversial mount and it's easy to see why. At the high price one would expect something special from this mount, but unfortunately that is not the case. The only interesting thing about it is the fact that it's the only Riverbeast mount that you can buy directly with gold at any time. There are no reputation requirements, but you do need 5,000 Apexis Crystals in addition to the 50,000 gold. Once you have everything, you can get the Dawn-Seeker Alkset mount in Warspear if you're Horde, or Dawn-Seeker Krek in Stormshield if you're Alliance.
5. Tretklinge des Champions – 100.000 Gold
The Champion's Threadblade is one of the few unique WoW mounts that are exclusive to a specific faction. In this case the alliance. Developed as part of a special promotion a few years ago, the Helicopter mount has a Horde counterpart known as the Warlord's Deathwheel. But while the Wheel of Doom was given away to Horde players, Alliance players had to buy their own, which seemed like a bad deal at the time. Ultimately, however, Horde players were left with the worst as the ability to acquire the Warlord's Deathwheel was completely removed after the promotion ended. In the meantime, Alliance players can still buy their helicopter, albeit at a rather steep price.
4. Reins of the Great Yak Expedition - 120,000 gold
The Grand Expedition Yak has been one of the most popular WoW mounts for many years. With this mount, you get the benefits of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth in the form of a crafter/merchant NPC, plus an additional NPC that acts as a transmogrifier. With transmogrifications being all the rage these days, the Grand Expedition Yak is an absolute must-have for any serious collector. You can grab the mount from Uncle Bigpocket, who lives on Kun-Lai Summit, near where the Sha of Anger spawns. Uncle Bigpocket also sells two other yak mounts for just 3000 gold each, but they don't have any special properties.
3. Sumpfhüpfer – 333.000 Gold
We included the three vendor swamphoppers added in Battle for Azeroth as they are essentially different color variants of the same mount. With the release of Shadowlands, these mounts are less in demand, as you can easily acquire a similar frog mount that drops from a rare mob in Ardenweald. But if you have gold left, you can get Gottum's three original frog mounts in Nazmir for no less than 333,000 gold each. That's almost 1 million gold for all three.
2. Reins of the Fair Direhorn - 500,000 gold
The Palehide Hirehorn is one of the most unreasonably expensive WoW mounts ever released. Essentially, it's just a color change to one of the many Direhorn mounts that were already available prior to the release of Battle for Azeroth. The mount doesn't have any special traits, so you're literally paying half a million gold just to change the color. But if you think it's worth it, you can get Talutu's mount if you're playing Horde, or Tricky Nick if you're playing Alliance.
1. Bloodfang Widow - 2 million gold
And number one, we have the most expensive World of Warcraft mount that can be purchased through the regular route, the Bloodfang Widow. For a long time, this was the only spider mount in the game and due to its high cost, very few people owned it. Shadowlands introduced a new armored spider mount for PvP Season 1, making Bloodfang Widow slightly less unique now. But the original spider is still cool and you can buy it from The Mad Merchant in the Wonderworks Toy Shop in the Legion version of Dalaran as long as you're swimming in gold. The vendor has a random spawn timer, so be sure to check back later if it's not there on your first visit.
Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur
We couldn't make a list of the most expensive WoW mounts without mentioning the Longboi. The Mighty Caravan Brutosaur was purchased for a paltry 5 million gold until the release of the Shadowlands pre-patch. You can no longer purchase the mount from vendors, but it occasionally appears in theBlack Market Auction House. The bad news is that it usually costs even more than 5 million to buy it there.
Arguably one of the most unique WoW mounts available today, the Lightforged Warframe was introduced to Legion for a whopping 500,000 gold. The reason we don't include it in the main list is that you have to be Exalted with the Army of the Light to be able to buy it. It's a little tricky to get to if you haven't beat Legion yet, but it's worth it considering how cool this mount is.
Reputationsreittiere von Battle for Azeroth
Similar to the Lightforged Warframe, there are several other pricey Battle for Azeroth mounts that you can purchase once you reach Exalted with various factions. The same goes for Shadowlands. But while mounts in Shadowlands only set you back 30,000 each, which is still a lot for some players, many of Battle for Azeroth's reputation mounts cost 90,000 each, and one of them will set you back over 524,000. It's easy to see why Battle for Azeroth was the biggest gold mine when you combine it with the Brutosaur, Frog mounts, Palehide Direhorn, and all the other purchasable mounts added in the expansion.
