Welcome to our paladin class mount guide for WoW Classic! Paladins are one of two classes that get unique mounts specifically for their class, the other being warlocks. Both classes get a mount at basic mount at level 40 and an epic version at level 60.
While you do get a unique charger as a paladin, it absolutely isn’t free as some might suggest and it requires completion of a fairly difficult quest line. You’ll need at least 350 gold and the help of allies to successfully acquire your mount. It’s definitely worth completing because it gets you style points and nobody other than a paladin can ride one!
The level 40 mount is extremely easy to obtain, simply requiring an 80 gold down payment to learn how to cast Summon Warhorse (60% speed). Because of that, we’ll only cover the requirements needed to acquire your epic mount (100% speed) in this guide. Let’s get started so you can work towards learning Summon Charger to ride your flashy class mount!
There are multiple quests that require the collection of items for completion. Some also require gold. In total, you will need 350 gold in addition to all of the items listed below. Opting to purchase everything can easily make the total price reach 400-500g depending on your server’s economy.
Where can I start the quests? The questline begins with Duthorian Rall, found within the Cathedral of Stormwind City.
Can I solo the questline? No, you will need a group for Dire Maul, Scholomance, and Stratholme if you don’t already have the holy waters.
Do I need to learn riding skills? No, both the level 40 and 60 mount quests give you the necessary skills to ride them.
Is there anyway to bypass the gold requirements? You can collect all necessary mats if you have mining and herbalism, but you’ll still need to find an alchemist to transmute the bars. The combined 350 gold requirement of Emphasis on Sacrifice, Collection of Goods, and The Ancient Equine Spirit cannot be skipped.
Can I fight Death Knight Darkreaver again after the final quest? Yes, you’ll need to pick up another Divination Scryer from Lord Grayson Shadowbreaker in the SWC Cathedral. He will offer you the instantly completable quest: Again Into the Great Ossuary.
Try to collect all of the necessary materials before starting the quest chain to save you time. You can stash them in the bank and pull them out just before you need them as you’ll already be near a bank. (We’ll mention when to pull your items out before leaving a convenient location).
Make sure to use the correct judgment spells when fighting the waves leading up to Death Knight Darkreaver! They do significant damage and AoE stun all enemies in range.
Take a strong and competent group with you when you run Dire Maul, Scholomance, and Stratholme for the holy water. Make sure they’re on the same page as you and that they’re ready to stop at the appropriate locations to help/allow you to do your quests.
Make sure to have a rogue with you when you do Dire Maul and Scholomance. This will eliminate your need for specific keys. Otherwise, you’ll need to clear other parts of the dungeon to get the keys that allow you into the specific parts of the dungeon you need to be in.
Without further ado, we’ll start on the quest walkthroughs. There are several quests to do in the questline, so we’ve split it up into four easily digestible sections. Make sure to fully read through them beforehand so you’re well prepared and have any necessary mats taken out of the bank.
Part One: Lord Grayson Shadowbreaker – To Show Due Judgement
Now you’ll need to make your way to the Eastern Plaguelands.
While you’re here, this is an excellent time to visit Light’s Hope Chapel and purchase your Enriched Manna Biscuits from the Argent Dawn Quartermaster. You need to be friendly with Argent Dawn to buy them.
Head to the northwestern part of the zone, near where the entrance to Stratholme is found. Continue west past the entrance until you reach an area called Terrordale.
