Calm it down. Get a mount.

World of Warcraft is full of a ton of unique mounts to collect over the course of the game’s many expansions. Some of these mounts have interesting or obscure ways to obtain them. During the Battle for Azeroth expansion, a hidden mount was added to the Darkshore zone as an Easter egg to the reveal cutscene for the patch. The Frightened Kodo mount is relatively easy to obtain if you know where to look and when. Here is all you need to know about getting the Frightened Kodo for yourself.

The Kodo is a friendly NPC that must be clicked in order to snatch it up. You will receive the message, “Frightened Kodo nuzzles your hand. He wants to come with you!” and the mount will then be placed into your bags several seconds later. Only the first person who clicks the spawned mob will receive the mount. It despawns shortly after being clicked or if no one clicks it within about two minutes.

There are several ways to increase your chances of finding the Frightened Kodo. Server resets seem to be a good time to check for a spawn. It is lootable by class trials and level 50s on both factions. It does not matter which faction controls Darkshore for it to spawn or be obtainable, so keep checking back frequently to eventually add this mount to your collection.
