    Mount guide for Leading the Cavalry

    Mount Guide
    I have written this guide to help those people who want to get the Leading the Cavalry achievement and how much it’ll cost them. I already have all the mounts myself and I’m just waiting for the patch. I’ll break it down for each race to see how much it’ll cost for each.

    Alliance
    Home Factions. You have to be exalted (with the exclusion of your own races mounts) to get these mounts. Being exalted will also mean you get 20% discount so I will take that into consideration:

    Horses All Races
    4 x 60% 32g
    3 x 100% 240g

    Rams All Races
    3 x 60% 24g
    3 x 100% 240g

    Mechanostriders Dwarves/Gnomes
    4 x 60% 32g
    3 x 100% 240g

    Elekks All Races
    3 x 60% 24g
    3 x 100% 240g

    Sabercats All Races
    3 x 60% 24g
    3 x 100% 240g

    Alliance Flyers. There is no discount for being exalted with anyone for these mounts:
    Gryphons All Races
    3 x 60% 300g
    4 x 280% 800g

    PvP Mounts. The greatest thing about these mounts is that they will cost you no gold at all! However that doesn’t mean they are easy to obtain and once again gnomes and dwarves have an advantage here.

    4 + 1 x 100% 120(150) x AB / 120(150) x AV / 120(150) x WSG

    Stormpike Battle Charger
    1 x 100% 50 x AV

    Winterspring Frostsaber. You get this mount by get exalted with the Wintersaber Trainers. Quite difficult to get unless you like mind-numbing grinding.
    1 x 100% 100g


    Horde
    Home Factions. You have to be exalted (with the exclusion of your own races mounts) to get these mounts. Being exalted will also mean you get 20% discount so I will take that into consideration:
    Wolves All Races
    3 x 60% 24g
    3 x 100% 240g

    Skeletal Horses All but Tauren
    3 x 60% 24g
    2 x 100% 160g

    Kodos All Races
    2 x 60% 16g
    3 x 100% 240g

    Raptors All but Tauren
    3 x 60% 24g
    3 x 100% 240g

    Hawkstriders All but Tauren
    4 x 60% 32g
    3 x 100% 240g

    Horde Flyers.There is no discount for being exalted with anyone for these mounts
    Windriders All Races
    3 x 60% 300g
    4 x 280% 800g

    PvP Mounts. The greatest thing about these mounts is that they will cost you no gold at all! However that doesn’t mean they are easy to obtain and once again taurens are at a disadvantage here.
    5 - 2 x 100% 150(90) x AB / 150(90) x AV / 150(90) x WSG

    Frostwolf Howler
    1 x 100% 50 x AV

    Extras
    So far the alliance have 46 mounts and the horde have 42 Which is almost there are already. However unless you are a dwarf or a gnome you only have 40 and if you’re a tauren you have a measly 22. This isn’t quite at the magical 50 number and this isn’t necessarily the cheapest way to do it. Lets look at other mounts we can get.

    Talbuks. These ground mounts are gotten by achieving exalted with the Kurenai/Mag'har. They are cheaper than most alternatives after the home factions and are worth a look. They come in 3 different types.

    Riding Talbuks
    4 x 100% 240g

    War Talbuks
    4 x 100% 400g

    Dark Talbuks
    2 x 100% Halaa Battle Token x170 + Halaa Research Token x35

    Nether Rays. These mounts are obtained by getting exalted with Sha’tari Skyguard, these will take some effort to get as there are only a few daily quests with them but you can grind the reputation with them however.
    5 x 280% 1000g

    Netherwing Drakes. These mounts are obtained by reaching exalted with the Netherwing faction. You get one for free when you reach exalted and you can return back to netherwing ledge and buy the remaining 5.
    6 x 280% 1000g (free one included)

    Cenarion War Hippogryph. This mount is obtained by reaching exalted with the Cenarion Expedition and is not really ideal as it has an outrageous cost.
    1 x 280% 2000g

    Rare Mounts. These mounts are incredibly hard to get and should not really be counted into your personal list unless you already have them.

    Amani War Bear Complete the timed Event in Zul’aman (removed in 3.0.2)
    Deathcharger Dropped by Baron Rivendare (incredibly low droprate)
    Firey Warhorse Dropped by Attumen the Huntsman (Karazhan)
    Pheonix Dropped by Kael’thas Sunstrider (The Eye)
    White Hawkstrider Dropped by Kael’thas Sunstrider (Magister’s Terrace)
    Raven Lord Dropped by Anzu (Heroic Sethekk Halls)
    Razzashi Raptor Dropped by Bloodlord Mandokir (Zul’Gurub)
    Zulian Tiger Dropped by High Priest Thekal (Zul’Gurub)
    Brewfest Kodo Dropped by Coren Direbrew (Brewfest)
    Brewfest Ram Dropped by Coren Direbrew (Brewfest)

    TCG Mounts. These are practically impossible to get these days but they are gotten via redemption of special trading card game codes.

    Riding Turtle
    Spectral Tiger
    Nether-Rocket

    So, here comes the race break down of approximately how much it’ll cost if you have no mounts at all

    Gnome: 2160g
    Dwarf: 2160g
    Human: 3504g
    Draenei: 3504g
    Night Elf: 3504g

    Blood Elf: 2216g
    Orc: 2216g
    Tauren: 5560g (and you need 6 other mounts, tough luck there)[I had forgotten the dark talbuks]
    Troll: 2216g
    Undead: 2216g

    Nice guide you put together here, all the links seem to be working but you mention the tauren needing 8 more mounts not obtained with gold/rep/tokens but unless I'm missng something they'd only need 6.

    22 racial + 4 riding talbuks + 4 war talbuks + 2 dark talbuks + 5 rays + 6 drakes + hippogryph = 44 mounts.

    Other than that nice guide, all links seem to be in the right places. And I've been trying to plot my mounts out for this so it helps too. =)

    One minor point -- the Cenarion War Hippogryph really only costs 1600g, since you cannot purchase it before exalted, which provides a 20% discount. Still by far one of the the least gold efficient mount out there. Sweet guide though, thanks!

    Is it? The achievement has been around since Wrath and you could get it in a day now. Would be willing to bet it's his own Youtube video trying to get hits.
