Exotic Mounts


  • Available only to players on realms located in North America, Europe, and Korea.[1]
  • Players who purchase it receive a code similar to that of the loot cards. When you enter the code in your account all characters are mailed a copy of this pet, as well as any future characters you create.[1]
  • Unlike other mounts that scale to your riding skill, if your character owns any 310% speed mount then the Celestial Steed will also move at 310% speed. The Steed does not however give a swim speed bonus to characters that also have a [Sea Turtle].
  • As of the date of release, those using old graphics cards or using fixedFunction will see odd graphics on the model for this mount.[3]


This mount is similar to the undead horse Invincible, occasionally dropped off of the Lich King in Icecrown Citadel on 25-player heroic difficulty.

The Celestial Steed bears a striking resemblance to some of the artwork and animations present in Ulduar. It is speculated by some that this mount may have originally been intended as a drop or achievement-earned mount for Ulduar, similar to the aforementioned mount from Icecrown Citadel.
