Mounts are used as a method of transportation and storage in the Elder Scrolls Online. Icon Mounts.pngThe 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.

Buying and activating a Mount

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 H Key.png key or pressing the touchpad on your PS4 controller. You can also rename your mounts via the Stable.

Mount Attributes

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

Cave Bear Mount

Found throughout Tamriel's northern mountains, the Cave Bear makes a hardy and imposing mount.

Hammerfell Camel

This 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.

1,800 eso-crowns-mount

Highland Wolf Mount

The 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.

1,800 eso-crowns-mount

Pride-King Lion
