The quintessential creation of Gnomish ingenuity.[1] (TCGWG 127)

Mechanostrider mounts are Alliance only mounts. They were originally introduced into the game as gnome and dwarf only mounts. Later the racial restrictions were removed from all mounts.

Factional mounts: Apprentice

These mounts give a 60% speed increase on land. You can purchase these mounts from Alliance  Milli Featherwhistle <Mechanostrider Merchant>, north of Kharanos in central Dun Morogh so long as your character has riding skill of 75 (obtainable at level 20). If you are playing as any race other than a Gnome, you will also need to have Exalted reputation with the Gnomeregan Exiles.

Factional mounts: Journeyman

Other Mechanostrider mounts

These following mechanostriders can be purchased from the Argent Tournament. You must have completed Money achievement.png Champion of Gnomeregan or be a gnome to gain access to this quartermaster.

Discontinued and exceptional mounts

These used the old mechanostrider mounts graphics, and can be exchanged for the newer variety if desired.

This particular mount was issued by a GM to a player on the EU servers by mistake, when the player had accidently deleted his mount.
