Moar Achievements: Mountain O’ Mounts Action Plan 1-57 (the easy part)

The good news is that there are a lot of mounts in game now that you can use to get the Mountain O’ Mounts achievement (100 mounts).  The bad news is that mount collecting is expensive!  This is my Mountain O’ Mounts action plan, plus some optional extra mounts you could use towards your collection.

Things to know about Mountain O’ Mounts

  • Class mounts don’t count
  • Profession mounts do count
  • You don’t need to be Exalted with your own faction
  • This is an Alliance list – but all mounts have a Horde equivalent

 What you are going to need

  • Cash!  At least 16829 gold according to my action plan, though you could replace some of these mounts with cheaper options if you were willing to farm for longer/can do more achievements/have rare mounts. This assumes no discounts so you will spend lest with faction discounts and the guild saving.
  • Time – you will need to farm reputations at some point, and there are quite a few mounts to be had from dailies too.  You also can’t do all the dailies every day.
  • A level 85 toon (I include Tol Barad mounts here, hence the requirement – you could do this achievement at a lower level, but you would need more of the alternative mounts).
  • 2175 Justice Points
  • 14000 Honor points
  • At least Artisan Riding.  You can gain Master Riding by doing the holiday meta if you wish.  None of these mounts require Master Riding to use.

    • Hey repgrind – I had the Stormpike Battle Charger on the second part of the guide because Exalted with the Stormpike Guard takes a while to get. But I managed to buy it today at just Revered – not sure what rep level you need now but yes, this might be one to think about during this first part.

      • You actually don’t need any rep at all anymore. I forget when they removed that requirement … I think it was when they removed the old marks. I think my paladin has done AV all of twice, and that was just for School of Hard Knocks .. he’s probably not even friendly. :)
