Recently blizzard released an article about mount on battle net. In this edition, we're looking at some of the more fun and interesting ways to grow your collection of mounts. If you haven't done much (or any) mount collecting since the launch of Warlords of Draenor, you're in for a treat, as the latest expansion introduced more than 40 new mounts to the game. Some are exceptionally difficult to obtain, but this article focuses primarily on mounts that more easily attainable—but still require a bit of effort and know-how. Now let us see what you need to learn to master many mounts.

There's No Place Like Home
Your Garrison offers you the most direct way to get your reins on 10 new mounts, eight of which are available via the Stables. If you don't have a Stables, it's a building that requires a large-sized plot, so you'll have to demolish your Barracks, Bunker/War Mill, Gearworks, or Mage Tower/Spirit Lodge to make room for it. Don't worry if you want to demolish the Stables later once you're done with it—any mounts you earn from the Stables will remain in your collection permanently. And you can buy wow mounts on our site.
These six mounts are obtainable via quests that pop up in your Stables each day:
Trained Icehoof
Trained Meadowstomper
Trained Riverwallow
Trained Rocktusk
Trained Silverpelt
Trained Snarler
The quests will require you to track down wild beasts in various zones, lasso them, break them, and ultimately tame them and make them love you.
Once you have all six, you can take on the achievements Advanced Husbandry and The Stable Master. The first rewards an Armored Frostboar, and the second grants you the Armored Frostwolf. This is where things get tricky.
The achievements require you to go to Nagrand and kill each of six named enemies while mounted on each of your six trained mounts. Additionally, you have to have a debuff item in your possession. For Advanced Husbandry, you'll need to have the Black Claw of Sethe, and for The Stable Master, you'll need to complete all 36 kills while under the effects of the Garn-Tooth Necklace. Look around your Stables for those items, and be ready to move slower and take more damage on your trained mounts when you've got them.
It's also possible to obtain two more mounts using your Trading Post:
Armored  Irontusk(Alliance—requires Exalted with Sha'tari Defense)
Ironside  Warwolf(Horde—requires Exalted with Laughing Skull Orcs)
In either case, you've got to build a Trading Post, advance it to at least level 2, and gain a lot of rep. Once again, Wowhead has the lowdown with theirLaughing Skull Reputation Guide and thisSha'tari Defense Reputation Guide.

Let's Go Camping
There's nothing quite like the feeling you get when a rare NPC spawns after you've spent a long time waiting for it, and you capture the mount of your dreams. In Draenor, there are eight such mounts, and six of them are a guaranteed drop for any character who takes part in the kill:
Bloodhoof Bull—dropped by Nakk the Thunderer in Nagrand
Great Greytusk—dropped by Gorok in Frostfire Ridge
Mottle Meadowstomper—dropped by Luk'hok in Nagrand
Sapphire Riverbeast—dropped by Silthide in Talador
Sunhide Gronnling—dropped by Poundfist in Gorgrond
Swift Breezestrider—dropped by Pathrunner in Shadowmoon Valley
The most basic way to acquire any of these mounts is to hunt down the rare creatures that drop them, usually by spending some time in each of the spots where they are known to spawn.
The key to wrangling these rare mounts is patience. The enemies that drop them spawn very infrequently, and in only one of several possible places, so a fair amount of luck is required. Wherever you place yourself, you'll likely be far away from most of the other spawn points, and these rare creatures are usually taken out quickly. However, once you've collected most of them, it will get easier to find the others, since you'll have so much less territory to cover to do so.
You Can't Take It With You
You may have overlooked or never known that there are seven mounts available to you to purchase in Warspear for gold and Apexis Crystals (and more are coming in Patch 6.2!).
Breezestrider Stallion (Horde—requires Exalted with Vol'jin's Spear)
Domesticated Razorback (requires Exalted with Steamwheedle Preservation Society)
Dusty Rockhide (Alliance—requires Exalted with Council of Exarchs)
Mosshide Riverwallow
Pale Thorngazer (Alliance—requires Exalted with Wrynn's Vanguard)
Shadowmane  Charger(requires Exalted with Arakkoa Outcasts)
Swift Frostwolf (Horde—requires Exalted with Frostwolf Orcs)

Or We'll Come To You
One very good reason to participate in a Garrison invasion every week and go for the gold rating is actually four very good reasons:
Garn Steelmaw
Giant Coldsnout
Shadowhide Pearltusk
Smoky Direwolf
You can only find these four mounts in the Invader's Forgotten Treasure left behind after you earn a GW2 Gold Rating in your defense. The chance of finding each in your cache is quite small, so you'll want to keep defending your and your friends' Garrisons each week.
