FAQ posted by Hortus. This change was implemented after the latest revision of the patch notes was made available for inclusion into the 1. It will be documented in a future revision however. There will be effectively two riding skill levels, Apprentice and Journeyman. The cost for the riding skill will be significantly higher than it previously was, however this is offset by a drastically lower cost for the actual mount.

For current players with mounts there will be a seamless transition to the new system. You will continue to have your mount; you will continue to be able to use it, etc. What this change does for players who don't yet have a mount or an epic mount is take the emphasis off of the mount itself, and put it on the riding skill. This helps give players access to more variety without requiring a large monetary investment if they, for instance, just want to pick a different colored horse.

In light of the recent changes to the mounts and the surrounding hysteria therein, I have written this F. Please feel free to correct it.

Let me say this first: After the changes in this patch, you will spend the SAME amount of money to learn to ride and buy a regular or epic mount as you did before the patch. The costs are merely reversed. In a nutshell, the cost of learning to ride a mount and the cost of purchasing a mount have been swapped. Instead of paying 80g for a regular mount undiscounted and 20g undiscounted to learn riding for that mount, you will pay 20g for a regular mount and 80g to learn the riding skill.

Instead of paying g for an epic mount undiscounted , you will pay g undiscounted for the epic mount and g undiscounted for the riding skill. Currently, there are various types of riding skill, one for each type of mount.

This is how Blizzard restricted cross-racial mounts. They are not BoP. Under this system, an Orc could give his Troll friend g undiscounted , the Troll would buy the mount, and then trade that mount back to the Orc. This was especially helpful for non-PvPers or those who were not yet honored with their own race. In the patch, there will be only two riding skills, presumably one for the Alliance and one for the Horde.

Purchasing that riding skill will allow you to ride all mounts of that faction, regardless of their race. However, there will now be two levels of riding. Apprentice riding will cost 80g undiscounted and allow you to ride regular mounts.

Journeyman riding will cost g undiscounted and allow you to ride epic mounts. Blizzard has suggested that you are going to be transitioned over with no additional cost. If you have an epic mount and can ride it, you will not need to spend extra money to relearn it. If you have a regular mount and can ride it, you will not need to spend extra money to relearn it. If you choose to PvP up to rank 11 or to exalted with AV and get the mount, you will not need to purchase Journeyman Riding for g undiscounted.

You will only need to buy the mount and have Apprentice Riding for 80g undiscounted. I am unsure at this time if the price of these mounts will drop. Again, this is somewhat unclear.

If you have already purchased your mount, but are too low of a level to ride it when the patch comes through, you will be paying 2x what you would normally. If I do not level her to 40 by this patch, I will be forced to pay another 72g honored, no PvP discount to learn to ride it.

In addition, if you already have gotten the reputation for a cross race epic mount, but have not yet bought one AND you already have your same-race epic mount, your new cross-race epic mount will only cost you g undiscounted instead of g undiscounted.

At the moment, as I described above, standard mounts are BoU. The limiting factor in cross-race mounts was the riding skill.

In the new system, mounts are BoP. You will only be able to purchase a cross-faction mount if you have the correct reputation with that race. The limiting factor in cross-race mounts will now be the mount itself. Now that mounts are BoP, they cannot be sold on the AH. In addition, all mounts have racial restrictions on them. The tooltip for Mechanostriders, for example, says only Dwarves and Gnomes can ride them.

Therefore, even if you could get a mount cross-faction, you couldn't use it. Flying mounts in the expansion will probably require a different riding skill and be unifactional.
