As usual, before the start of the expansion, alpha testing releases, where players can assess new locations, tasks, gameplay innovations, class balance changes, and more. One of the most favorite aspects of the game has always been collecting. So, we are going to tell about mounts collecting especially. In this guide, you can find out, what mounts players can get in WoW Shadowlands, as well as ways of getting these mounts.
In this section, we will be looking at the Shadowlands mounts that can be obtained in certain locations. There are different ways to get them. Some zone mounts drop from Rare enemies, others require specific actions in certain areas to get them.
Bastion is one of the ruling realms of the Shadowlands, ruled by the Kyrian Covenant. It is a kingdom of pristine spires, crystalline skies, and elysian vistas, ordered and purposeful.
Bastion mounts are made in bright colors and may be more suitable for the players of the Alliance. However, if you are a Mag’har orc and always have dreamed of riding a unicorn-like mount, then you will definitely like these mounts.

Maldraxxus is one of the realms of the Shadowlands, ruled by the Necrolord Covenant. It represents the heart of the Shadowlands’ military might. It is home to wicked beings like necromancers and abominations, but not everyone here is evil. Relentless, warlike souls who never yield and are willing to strive against one another for greatness are welcomed here by the necrolords, and the greatest of them are reformed by necromancers into undead soldiers who defend the Shadowlands from external forces and wage war on the enemies of death.
Unlike Bastion, the undead-style Maldraxxus mounts are more suitable for players from the Horde, though the Maldraxxus mounts look amazing, that’s why even Alliance players will not refuse to get them in their collection.

Ardenweald is a realm of the Shadowlands founded by the Winter Queen and inhabited by the Night Fae Covenant. An enchanted, mystical forest of rest and hibernation, Ardenweald is where Wild Gods and other spirits of nature travel upon death. Giant dream trees across the forest draw in anima, which is then used by the Night Fae to rejuvenate the spirits as they slumber inside wildseeds and prepare them to be reborn into the world of the living.
Ardenweald has received the largest number of mounts among all the Shadowlands locations. There are Ardenweald mounts for every taste: from a frog in a voodoo mask to a giant sparkling moth.

Revendreth is a realm of the Shadowlands founded by Sire Denathrius and inhabited by the Venthyr Covenant. It is a land of gothic spires and dark secrets, and no soul wishes to end up here. Souls sent here by the Arbiter tend to be prideful or have some other flaw preventing them from serving in or going to one of the other realms, and they come here to atone for their sins and hopefully be redeemed, as the alternative is being cast into the Maw.
Mounts of Revendreth look very ominous and made in the dark vampire style. Those who love to ride on the bat with huge fangs will definitely like mounts of Revendreth. In addition to the Revendreth mounts shown here, you can get Blanchy’s Reins in the Revendret, but you can read about this mount in a separate paragraph below.

The Maw Mounts
The Maw is one of the realms of the Shadowlands. This horrific place houses the most vile and irredeemable souls in existence. Ruled by the enigmatic Jailer, the Maw inspires nightmares and legends even among the denizens of the Shadowlands. No one has ever escaped this vile place, and any foolish enough to venture here are never heard from again. At its center lies Torghast, a cursed otherworldly prison where the wickedest souls in the universe are locked away.
In the Maw you can only get one mount, but it looks amazing. We may be able to see more Maw mounts in the future, but for now, let’s take a look at this gorgeous ghost bear in armor.

As usual, all the factions presented in the expansion will have a reputation system, which can be increased in order to get various rewards, including mounts. Let’s take a look at the mounts that can be obtained for reputation in Shadowlands. Unfortunately, each of reputation mount is just a recolor of a different mount, which can be obtained in the zones where these factions are located, but they still look really cool.

Court of Harvesters Mount
After countless ages spent under the rule of Sire Denathrius, authority in Revendreth is now shared amongst the Court of Harvesters. These noble venthyr carry out the sacred duty of redeeming prideful souls.
The Court of Harvesters are those venthyr who bear the seven Medallions created by Sire Denathrius, each containing a fraction Denathrius’ power, and allowing Denathrius to see the actions of each Harvester. The Medallions give each Harvester authority of their respective Ward and duties otherwise, as well as great power. There is an area between Sinfall and Castle Nathria with the same name.

In the new expansion, we have a new Covenant system. Each player will have to join one of the Covenants and help them cope with their local difficulties. As a reward, players will receive many different utilities and even skills for the character. Other rewards will include new Shadowlands mounts.
Obtainable by All Covenants
Most of the mounts that are given by the Covenant are associated with the Covenant itself, however, there are four mounts that will get each follower of every Covenant
The steadfast kyrian (sometimes pluralized as kyrians) of Bastion are one of the Covenants in the Shadowlands. They are angelic soul guides whose discipline and duty compels them to safeguard souls from the mortal realm as they pass into the Shadowlands. They are messengers, couriers, and some of the purest souls in the realm of death. For following kyrian covenant you’ll get plenty of beautiful bright kyrian mounts

The venthyr of Revendreth are vampiric punishers of the unworthy charged with rehabilitating the sinful souls sent to them by the Arbiter. Souls who are successfully rehabilitated can then choose to be sent to another realm to serve for eternity, or become a venthyr themselves and continue the cycle as an instrument of repentance. The venthyr were created by Sire Denathrius in his likeness, forging them from the souls of the redeemed. The first of them was Prince Renathal. The Venthyr Covenant is one of the four covenants ruling over the Shadowlands. For choosing this Covenant you’ll receive a lot of dark vampiric venthyr mounts.

Source: Dead Blanchy
The terms of getting this mount is pretty similar to the Uldum’s Alpaca except for one thing – Alpaca required the same weed every day, but in order to get this mount you should collect 6 different items from different places. Getting this mount will take 6 days, and it doesn’t have to be 6 days in a row. To receive this mount, you have to be at least level 55, which isn’t a real problem as Revendreth is the last zone you’ll explore in the Shadowlands, so your level already will be far from 50. So, the first thing we should do is to find Dead Blanchy. It will ask for 6 different items (one for each day). You don’t really need to find the exact item every single day. You can get all the items it the first day and keep them in the inventory to give the specific item to Dead Blanchy for each day. Now let’s see the exact items Dead Blanchy needs and where to find them.
8x Handful of Oats in Westfall @ 56.50, 36.68 scattered around Saldean’s Farm (Requires level 55)
1x Grooming Brush in Revendreth @ 63.26, 61.63 talk to Snickersnee
1x Empty Water Bucket in Revendreth @ 63.26, 61.63 and fill it with Water in either Ardenweald or Bastion to get Bucket of Clean Water
3x Dredhollow Apple in Revendreth @ 40.86, 46.74 bought from Mims
4x Sturdy Horseshoe in Revendreth Southeast Area scattered around on the ground, mostly on roads
1x Comfortable Saddle Blanket in Revendreth @ 51.10, 78.82 bought from Ta’tru
(This NPC changes on a weekly rotation the requirement to buy the Blanket, so you need one of those: 30x Creeping Crawler Meat or 30x Aethereal Meat or 30x Phantasmal Haunch or 10x Marrowroot or ?)
When she runs into you: “Dead Blanchy stops abruptly to avoid running you down.”
Day 1 – “Dead Blanchy’s eyes are frenzied. Her form is sickly and gaunt. She is clearly famished and needs a hearty meal.” – Handful of Oats
Day 2 – “Dead Blanchy accepts the oats enthusiastically. Though she is shaggy in patches, her skin ripples with irritation from stinging mites, sharp thorns, and smelly muck.” – Grooming Brush
Day 3 – “Dead Blanchy shivers and nuzzles you as the grooming brush cleans the irritants from her skin. As she shifts her weight and stamps, you notice her hooves are badly chipped.” – Sturdy Horseshoes
Day 4 – “Dead Blanchy lifts her hooves obediently, happy to save her injured feet tended. She’s out of breath and blowing hard and seems very thirsty.” – Bucket of Clean Water
Day 5 – “Dead Blanchy eagerly drinks the entire bucket before butting her head against you. She’s quenched her thirst but is shivering uncontrollably.” – Comfortable Saddle Blanket
Day 6 – “Dead Blanchy stands very still as the saddle blanket is placed upon her. As her shivering slows and then stops, Blanchy begins searching your bags for a treat.” – Dredhollow Apples
So after giving her Dredhollow Apples you get Blanchy’s Reins
Adventure is the well-known «Table» which exists since Draenor. The developers decided to slightly revise their view of this part of the game and made adventures, where you can get some adventure mounts as rewards.

Torghast, Tower of the Damned Mounts
Yet another striking innovation was the Torghast tower. It has already been liked by many players during alpha testing. In addition to other rewards, you can get a mount in the Torghast tower, which is very similar to the mount that you can get in the Maw.
