Mounts

Mounts in Rift are treated like a collection. You buy, find, or acquire the item, then use it to add it to your Mounts collection. After that, drag the icon from the Mounts collection window to a hotbar slot and click that to call or dismiss your mount.
Many Mounts have level or faction requirements that must be met, or you need a certain level of Notoriety with the faction of the merchant for him to be willing to sell to you.

Outside of a few special Event mounts, the mounts fall into five classifications by increase to movement speed:

  • Basic: 60%
  • Nimble: 90%
  • Swift: 110%
  • Steadfast: 130%
  • Armored Swift: 150%

Quested mounts and special event mounts are cosmetic and are only as fast as your fastest purchased mount (or a minimum of 60% speed increase). For example, if you have a Crocnard (from the Water Saga) or a Mossy Tartagon (from the Planar Menace world event) and you have purchased a Nimble Copper Eldritch Steed Bridle (90% speed), then your Crocnard or Mossy Tartagon will also give you a 90% speed increase.
