How Do You Get Different Horses in Diablo IV?

Mounts are the latest addition to Diablo, and they’ve definitely changed the entire gameplay. Even though their role is not vital to the game, it definitely looks better when you are riding your demonic steed.

But when can you get your first mount? Well, this becomes a possibility once you're deep into the narrative, specifically at the beginning of Act IV.

You thought it was as easy as opening and browsing through all the horses you can pick? Think again. Mounts are unlocked once you are more than halfway in the story of the game.

At this juncture, you're given a priority quest called "Donan's Favor" by simply engaging with the Stable Master in Kyovashad. Complete this quest, and voilà, you're not just walking anymore.

Finally, as a reward, you will receive your very own horsey buddy, Old Nell Steed! Or you may purchase one of the other horses right there. Grey Steed and Mottled Steed cost 20,000 gold apiece.

This quest is not as difficult as the Call of the Ancients quest, but you cannot do it until you reach Act IV.

How to Get Other Horse Mounts in Diablo

The horses in Diablo IV aren't just there for aesthetics; they're a testament to your journey, your battles, and occasionally, your penchant for shopping. It is worth mentioning that horses in Diablo IV won’t make a big difference in your travel and power.

Each mount comes with a spur ability, which allows players to move faster while riding a mount, but it isn’t that groundbreaking. Also, some mounts combined with different classes have abilities like jumping from the horse and dealing damage.

To be honest, most people argue that traveling with a horse is more complicated than going on foot. Why? Because sometimes these horses are a nightmare to control in tight areas.

So, once you’ve obtained your first mount through the Donan’s Favor quest in Act 4, how can you get different horses?

Well, horses in Diablo IV can be obtained in several different ways.

Here's a rundown on how to diversify your stable:

  • Dropped by Monsters: Certain breeds drop in specific regions. Fancy a "Spotted Shale-coat" from Scosglen or a "Striped Steppe" horse from the Dry Steppes? Then you know where your next adventure lies.
  • Promotional Mounts: Pre-order bonuses and special promotions reward you with unique mounts like the "Light Bearer" or the zebra-striped "Primal Instinct" mount. These are exclusive to certain editions or promotions.
  • PvP and Stable Master Mounts: Engage in PvP to collect enough Red Dust for the Bloody Mount or visit the Stable Master for a selection, such as the Grey Steed.
  • Customization

    Your mount in Diablo IV is not just a means of getting from point A to point B; it's a reflection of your style and achievements. You can customize your mount at the Stable Master found in major cities and outposts. Here, you can change your mount's breed, armor, and saddle, and even display trophies from your conquests.

    Class-Specific Dismount Abilities

    Each class in Diablo IV brings its unique flair to dismounting. Whether you're a Barbarian executing a "Bounding Slam" or a Sorceress crystallizing into a "Freezing Wake," dismounting is not just functional—it's devastatingly stylish.

    Maneuvering Your Mount

    Maneuverability on your mount is crucial, especially when you're weaving through a horde of demons.

    The "Spur" ability grants a burst of speed, allowing you to pass through enemies, while the fear gauge warns you when your steed is about to buck you off in terror. This mechanic ensures that while you're on horseback, you're not just faster but also need to be smarter.

    Best Horses to Get in Diablo IV

    Spectral Charger

    This is without a doubt one of the best-looking mounts in the game that fits perfectly with Diablo IV. This horse has a see-through ghostly appearance and it looks like it has been tamed from some kind of supernatural horse.

    How to get it?

    Players must first finish the objective to free the Kor Dragan Stronghold in Fractured Peaks before participating in the Gathering Legion Zone event, which will include this mount as a loot drop for those who accomplish it successfully.


    If you want something even more demonic, Temptation is the right horse for you. It is a supernatural horse with glowing red skin and dark red eyes. This horse has a unique look, and will definitely enhance any type of armor that players wear.

    Unfortunately, this horse cannot be obtained by everyone. Temptation is limited to the players who purchased the Deluxe or Ultimate edition of Diablo IV.

    Primal Instinct

    This is a dark horse with a realistic appearance, with unusual markings on his body. It is definitely an exclusive design and quite different from all the other mounts in the game.

    It is a dark black coat horse, with branded cultist symbol that gives the horse that mythical aura.

    But don’t worry, you don’t have to spend more money or get special editions of the game to get this horse. In order to obtain Primal Instinct, you only have to link your Blizzard and Twitch accounts.

    Final Words

    So, getting a different horse in Diablo IV features a free and paid method. Most of the free horses aren’t that unique in appearance, and if you like something special, you need to purchase them from the shop.

    Sorry, but that is how Blizzard does things.,/p>
