Mounts are used as a method of transportation and storage in the Elder Scrolls Online. The Elder Scrolls Online features a variety of horses with different pricing and upgrade options accessible from Stables.
Limited edition mounts can also be purchased from the crown store.
You must visit a Stable and talk to the NPC in charge. In the dialogue, you will see an option to purchase a mount of varying amounts of gold. You can purchase as many mounts as you want, but you can only have one active mount at a time and must return to the Stablemaster to change your active mount. Summon your mount using the key or pressing the touchpad on your PS4 controller. You can also rename your mounts via the Stable.
Every 20 hours, you may increase one "Riding Skill" for a cost of 250 gold.
- Speed: This is the rate at which the mount moves, increasing your character's unmounted movement buff. This attribute is particularly useful in pvp, but can also be convenient for pve travel.
- Stamina: This is your mount's sprint and resistance stat. Similar to your character's sprinting and blocking limitations, horse stamina will determine how far you can sprint before exhausting, and how much damage the mount can take before you get dismounted.
- Carrying Capacity: This is your mount's bag space. Increasing this stats add slots to your character's inventory, providing you with more mobile bag space.
List of Crown Store Mounts
Hist Guar MountIn Black Marsh this mount is called Scales-Seem-Daubed-with-Hist-Sap. It is the only subspecies of guar known to enjoy music.
Cave Bear MountFound throughout Tamriel's northern mountains, the Cave Bear makes a hardy and imposing mount.
Hammerfell CamelThis is the stoic, hard-working beast that riders in the wastes of Hammerfell count on to survive. And if things come to a fight, it's just plain mean.
Highland Wolf MountThe brown Highland Wolf is common in the Colovian hills and in Cyrodiil's Great Forest, where wild packs are feared by farmers and shepherds. But foresters have domesticated the beasts and, bred for size, use them as mounts.
Pride-King LionThe Pride-King Lions are the top predators on the savannahs of northern Elsweyr. No one but the Khajiiti, with their feline intuitions, could have persuaded these proud beasts to serve as mounts.
Tessellated GuarA sturdy, multi-purpose guar, at home anywhere from swamps to the ashlands
Piebald DestrierStaunch and vigorous, this patterned war-horse is known for its courage and tenacity.
White Mane HorseA rare, highly sought cross between a midnight steed and a Skyrim ice-horse.
Alliance War Horse
Mounted knights are both powerful and prestigious, so it's no surprise the Three Alliances compete to breed the strongest and most majestic chargers for their armored cavalries.
Nightmare CourserThe origin of this horrific mount is obscure, but some see the hand of Mehrunes Dagon in it.
