Burning Crusade Classic opens up the ability for a new type of riding skill, allowing players to take to the skies and ride flying mounts. Flying mounts are a much more convenient way to get around, as you can fly over any obstacles and get from point a to point b much more quickly. In this guide, we’ll take a look at how much a flying mount costs in Burning Crusade Classic, where to train the riding skills, and everything else you need to know.
How much does a flying mount cost in Burning Crusade Classic?
The price of a flying mount in Burning Crusade Classic varies depending on the rarity of the mount and the riding skill you want to train. Expert riding skill is 800 gold, and Artisan riding skill is 5,000 gold. The rare mount, which requires expert riding skill and grants 60% speed, costs 100 gold. The epic mount, which requires artisan riding skill and grants 280% speed, costs 200 gold.
Here is a breakdown of the flying mount cost in Burning Crusade Classic:
|Mount Quality||Riding Skill||Riding Skill Cost||Mount Cost||Total Cost|
|Rare (60% speed)||Expert||800 Gold||100 Gold||900 Gold|
|Epic (280% speed)||Artisan||5,000 Gold||200 Gold||5,200 Gold|
Burning Crusade Classic flying mounts require level 70, aside from Druids, who can fly at level 68 using Flight Form, a new shapeshift. Druids can train Flight Form from their class trainers for only 8 gold and 60 silver, as long as they know Journeyman Riding, which is a requirement for riding epic ground mounts.
