Mounts in Diablo 4 are not just mere rideable creatures, but loyal companions who will greatly enhance your travels across Sanctuary. However, before you can ride headfirst into battle, you must first unlock the ability to obtain mounts. In this guide, we will walk you through the process of unlocking all mounts in Diablo 4, ensuring you have the best user experience possible. Let’s dive in!
When Do You Get a Mount in Diablo 4?
To unlock the ability to ride a mount in Diablo 4, players must first reach Act 4 and complete the “Mount: Donan’s Favor” quest. This priority quest is given to players immediately after completing Act 3’s final quest, “A Master’s Touch”. Simply talk to Oskar at the Kyovashad Stables to start the quest. Once completed, you’ll be granted your very own horse, which you can summon and customize freely from stables like Kyovashad.

Mount Controls in Diablo 4
Before we delve into unlocking different mounts, let’s quickly go over the control scheme for mounts in Diablo 4:
- Summon Mount: Z / D-Pad Right
- Spur Mount: Spacebar / R2 / RT
- Dismount: Right Click / Circle / B
- Combat Dismount: 1 / Square / X
Now that we’re familiar with the controls, let’s explore the different mounts available in Diablo 4 and how to unlock them.
How to Unlock the Basic Mount
The first mount you’ll encounter in Diablo 4 is a brown horse. You can find this mount in the stables right from the start. It is unlocked upon completing the “Mount: Donan’s Favor” quest mentioned earlier.
How to Unlock the Light Bearer Mount
To obtain the exclusive Light Bearer Mount and the Caparison of Faith Mount Armor, you must pre-order any version of Diablo IV. However, please note that you still need to unlock the ability to use mounts in Diablo 4 before equipping the Light Bearer Mount.
How to Unlock the Spectral Charger Mount
The Spectral Charger Mount is a reward for completing the Gathering Legion World Event in the Kor Dragan area, located north of Kyovashad. But be sure you’re strong enough to take on the challenge, as this event is only designed for players at Level 30 or higher. To initiate the event, complete the Kor Drogan Stronghold, after which the Zone Event will start spawning periodically. During the event, you’ll need to eliminate as many enemies as possible within a given time limit. After successfully completing the event, you’ll receive the Spectral Charger Mount and Ghastly Reigns in your inventory. The mount will then be available at the Kyovashad stables.
How to Unlock the Temptation Mount
By purchasing the Diablo 4 Digital Deluxe or Ultimate Editions, players will gain access to the exclusive Temptation Mount and a set of Hellbound Carapace Mount Armor. These cosmetic items are likely to be exclusive to the more expensive versions of the release, making them unavailable through in-game means.
How to Unlock the Decaying Steed Mount
To unlock the Decaying Steed Mount, you’ll need to track down and defeat Treasure Goblins. These elusive creatures will attempt to escape by teleporting away when they spot you. Intercept them before they teleport completely, and defeat them to collect high-tier loot. Among the loot, you may find the Reins of the Decaying Steed. Use this item from your inventory to add the Decaying Steed to your stable.
Remember, before you can equip any of these mounts, you must first unlock the ability to use mounts in Diablo 4. Explore the world, complete quests, and level up to fully experience the joy of riding these majestic creatures.
With this guide, we hope you’re now well-equipped to unlock all the mounts in Diablo 4. So, saddle up and embark on thrilling adventures across Sanctuary with your trusted companions. Happy mount hunting!
