Getting a mount in World of Warcraft is for more than just easier transportation and exploration; it is also to flex on other players that you come across. There are many different mounts that you can collect as you adventure throughout Azeroth, and some are pretty easy to get. But the ones that are not, the ones that require the most work and even a little bit of luck, those are the ones that you can really impress with.
To give you an idea of which mounts fall into that category, we have the ten rarest mounts right here:
Big Love Rocket
You can get this aptly-named mount during the game’s yearly Love is in the Air event that runs in February. With a drop rate of 0.03%, this is one of the rarest mounts in the game and is acquired by opening a Heart-Shaped Box.
Black Qiraji Battle Tank
Unfortunately, if you missed the event to obtain this mount in vanilla World of Warcraft, this mount is no longer available. But hey, this article is about rarity, not how you can easily get them. Maybe the event will come back one day in World of Warcraft Classic, but for now, it’s a legendary mount to have.
While certainly easier to obtain than the last two mounts on this list, but the expense is going to cost you. You will have to shell out 5 million gold to purchase this mount. That price will only go up when Shadowlands is released as well, and it’s only available on the Black Market Auction House.
You can only get this mount through a rare card in the trading card game, by trading with another player (if you have the gold), or bought with real money. If you can manage it, it is absolutely a mount worth having and looks really cool as you fly around.
Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent
If you want to ride this serpent around the game, you will have to do a lot of farming for the Sha of Anger, which is only lootable once a week. Even with that, the drop rate is incredibly low, so be ready to spend a lot of time grinding it out.
You had to take down the Lich King himself to get his awesome-looking mount for yourself. If you were able to kill the Lich King in 25-Man Heroic mode, you had a chance to get this mount. A 0.78% chance, but a chance nonetheless.
There are two versions of this mount that you get: armored and unarmored, and both look pretty great. You’ll have to net this bad boy in the trading card game by trading another player or paying real money for it. So no matter what, it is going to cost some good money to get.
Thundering Onyx Cloud Serpent
You think you could see this thing flying toward you and not feel some semblance of fear? And maybe a little bit of respect? We didn’t think so. If you want to try to get this gorgeous mount, you can get it from Huolon on the Timeless Isle. Its drop rate, though, is only 0.90%.
Time-Lost Proto Drake
You can find this mount in the wild, though he can be a little tricky to pin down. You will want to camp out in The Storm Peaks of Northrend to find him. He will fly around in a few locations and randomly spawn every couple of hours, so be ready to act fast when he does.
White Riding Camel
We round out our list with a camel. Yes, you read that right: a camel. Released in 2012, you can net this mount in the trading card game or in-game from players. It’s a rarity, but man, rolling around Azeroth on the back of a camel, is certainly worth it.
