Three ways to motivate your mount to speed up in WoW Classic

www.g4wow.com
We talked about it a little when we discussed trinkets in WoW Classic, but some players really want
to know how speed up that mount they’re  going to pick up at level 40 . It’s something which  can be
hard to understand in the modern game, when your starting mount is at level 20 and costs 4 gold to
learn. That’s not the way it works in WoW Classic — you don’t get your first mount until level 40 and
it’s 80 gold.
 
You will likely get a discount on your first mount, because you’ll get it from the faction your character
most strongly identifies with and quested for, so it’ll be more like 60 gold, but trust me —  60 gold for
a mount at level 40 is going to feel like a lot of money.Many of us didn’t get that mount until closer to
50 because scraping up 60g meant that doing things like not training our skills for close to ten levels.
There were so many ways to spend money in classic World of Warcraft , and as a result ,that one is
first mount ended up lasting people well into endgame.
 
Why not just buy an epic mount once you hit 60 , I can hear you asking , and the answer is because
epic mounts cost 1000g . That may only sound a touch pricey in an economy fifteen years down the
road , but a lot of players didn’t get their epic mount until they were well into World of Warcraft‘s end
game.I didn’t get mine until after Ahn’Qiraj had been out for a while,and I got lucky with an epic staff
drop that I managed to auction off for 800g.Note, that even with that staff,I still had to scrape up 200
gold just to buy the thing, which meant I was broke for weeks.
 
When you realize just how pricey mount were back in the day, and how tough it was to generate the
silver to just keep your basic needs in check ,you will start to understand that ,why players went out
of their way to come up with ways to increase their mounted speed .And try to make that first mount
go faster.
 
 
How to buff your ride with enchants
 
There’s good news and bad news here .There are only three means to buff mounted speed in WoW
Classic beyond buying a faster mount, but those means stack with one another. That means , if you
have all three , you can add their mount speed increase percentage together for a flat additional 9%
buff to your mount speed.
 
The first was a fairly simple enchant, Enchant Gloves – Riding Skill.It requires Large Radiant Shards
which are disenchanted from mid 40’s and up gear,so it’s a enchant that players get right around the
time they’d need it. It adds 2% to your mounted speed , which will make it the least powerful of these
options, but since they all stack it’s still worth getting.
 
Second and slightly ,more difficult to acquire are the Mithril Spurs — these add 4% to your mounted
speed, making them the strongest of the three options.If you can only get one of these for whatever
reason, get the Spurs, as they’ll give you the most bang for your buck.But remember,they stack with
the other two options. So if you only got the Riding Skill enchant and the Mithril Spurs , and you’d be
looking at 6% increase to your mounted speed.
 
Mithril Spurs required 4 Mithril Bars and a Blacksmith with the pattern to make them,though the Spur
themselves can be traded. A friendly Blacksmith with at least 215 skill can to apply them to boots via
the trade window,they’re similar to the Riding Skill enchant in that most Blacksmiths would be getting
them at or around level 40.
 
 
Tantalizing Carrots held out on Sticks
 
Finally there’s the Carrot on a Stick. We talked about this trinket last time or—at 3% mounted speed
increase, it’s the middle of the road of the three options, and certainly the most labor intensive of the
three. The quest seems straightforward —kill Gahz’rilla in Zul’Farrak—but in practice that may mean
going through the lengthy process of getting the mallet to summon.Only one person per party needs
the mallet to summon the boss.
 
It should be pointed out that,Zul’Farrak is also a decent source of Large Radiant Shards for one that
Riding Skill enchant you’re going to want, and the Hinterlands —where you can get one piece of the
summoning mallet —has stocks of Mithril Ore waiting for you to mine it up.Doing the rounds here for
this trinket can help you with the mats for the enchants.
 
Again , the Carrot on a Stick adds its 3% bonus to the other two . Carrot plus Riding Skill equals 5%
Carrot plus Mithril Spurs equals 7%, and all three together gives you a 9% mount speed buff . While
this won’t exceed an epic mount, it will make the time you spend riding that 80g mount trying to farm
up the 1000g for the epic less painful.
 
Remember, this is a world with no flying . Epic mounts are only available to the wealthiest of the max
level players, and even that first mount is a sizable gold outlay. Anything players could do to buff that
first mount’s speed was worth it , or these three methods were basically it for players looking to wring
all the value they could out of that first ride. These were  for those of us who needed that Pinto to last
us a while.
