Lore: Library

This page lists mounts from the Crown Store Showcase.

Alliance War HorseEdit

Match your mount to your battle outfit with the Alliance War Horse! Mounted knights are both powerful and prestigious, so it's no surprise the Three Alliances compete to breed the strongest and most majestic chargers for their armored cavalries. The appearance of your War Horse automatically matches your character's Alliance.

Auroran WarhorseEdit

When one of Meridia's Auroran Knights manifests in Tamriel and needs a mount, the knight has the ability to instantly summon a Daedric Warhorse from the Colored Rooms. Curiously, if the knight is banished to Oblivion, the mount sometimes stays behind.

Banded Guar ChargerEdit

Not every guar is destined to haul heavy packs or become someone's meal. Unlike the temperamental but lovable pack guar, chargers are bred for their strength, speed, and stout hearts. Though it takes years to train them—guar are not known for being clever—they're as comfortable charging into battle as they are munching on saltrice.

Black BearEdit

The Black Bear is common across Cyrodiil, but is also seen north into High Rock and Skyrim, where it is considered a warrior's mount. It's also the preferred mount of Nord Nightblades, as it blends into the dark, and makes no hoofbeats when it gallops. Black Bears: almost stealthy!

Black Camel of Ill OmenEdit

The Black Camel is haughty and majestic—but some riders consider them creatures of bad luck and misfortune. However, if you're a thief riding off into the night with your ill-gotten gains, you might see things differently. Bad luck for them, good luck for you!

Black Senche-LionEdit

The Black Senche-Lion is the preferred mount of Elsweyr's greatest thieves, who want a ride that's both fierce and can fade into the dark of night. According to legend, the most famous Black Senche-Lion of all was Rajhin's mount Umbrage, which could both talk and, for brief periods, fly!

Black Senche-PantherEdit

This mount is said to have been bred by Baandari Pedlars, for ease in hastily leaving town after dark. No matter what time of day, you'll find it a graceful and stylish ride that will make you the envy of adventurers everywhere.

Chroma-Blue Dwarven SpiderEdit

Rarest of all Dwarven Spider vamidiums are those powered by gems that emit a cold blue light, said to reflect the frigid stolen soul of the Dwemer engineer trapped within it.

Clouded Senche-LeopardEdit

The Clouded Senche-Leopard is a strong yet nimble mount, bred for hunting in the dappled shadows of the Tenmar forest in central Elsweyr. The Clouded is intelligent but stubborn, and will usually cooperate only with a rider it knows well, making them unsuitable as mounts in the Senche-Cavalry.

Doom Wolf MountEdit

Bred for size and savagery from the fierce timber wolves of the southern Jerall Mountains, yet stealthy when necessary, the Doom Wolf has been adopted as the mount of choice by the secretive and deadly Dark Brotherhood. (To be frank, the glowing eyes weighed heavily in their decision.)

Dro-m'Athra SencheEdit

The Senche-shaped dro-m'Athra are known to the Twilight Cantors as the sar-m'Athra, but everyone else just calls these eerie and uncanny mounts the Dro-m'Athra Senche. Now, for a limited time, you too can look like you just rode out of the Maw of Lorkhaj!

Dwarven SpiderEdit

Of all the Dwemer animunculi, the Dwarven Spider is perhaps the most familiar and iconic! This versatile construct comes in several variations, and the best of all is this vamidium, or mechanical mount. Wait till they see you clank into town on this thing!

Fang Lair CourserEdit

In Fang Lair, not even ancient warriors' steeds are safe from reanimation by necromancers! Though to be fair, if you're looking for "grimly impressive," look no further—this is the mount for you.

Frost MareEdit

With its icy gaze and steaming breath, the frigid Frost Mare seems carved from the very glaciers of Skyrim. Its exact origin is unknown, but the Mages Guild believes it may originally have come from Takubar, the plane of origin of Cold Flame Atronachs.

Golden Eye GuarEdit

The golden eye is a crossbreed of banded and wild guar, as fearsome as it is intelligent and difficult to control. This breed of guar is fiercely loyal and bonds to its rider, refusing to allow anyone else to mount it. Training a golden eye requires a firm hand, but once one of these spirited mounts learns to respect its rider, it responds to directions very nearly before they are given, exhibiting an almost telepathic connection with its rider.

Great ElkEdit

Though the Reachmen of Markarth say they were the first to successfully domesticate the Great Elk of Skyrim and break them as mounts, the Nords of Haafingar deride this claim, saying it was really all their idea. But you just want a majestic mount with a built-in hat-rack, so who cares?

Hammerfell CamelEdit

This is the stoic, hard-working beast that riders in the wastes of Hammerfell count on to survive. Camel mounts are tall, tough as nails—and if matters come to a fight, they're just plain mean. Bonus: a camel is the only mount so ornery, it spits!

Hearthfire KagoutiEdit

The Hearthfire Kagouti appears to be a sort of magical hybrid, a wizard's experimental melding of a carnivorous reptile and a flame atronach. Not exactly subtle, this is definitely a mount for someone who wants to make an impression!

Highland Wolf MountEdit

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 steeds. Quick, nimble, and enduring, the foresters swear by them, and call them ideal woodland mounts.

Hist GuarEdit

In Black Marsh this mount is called Scales-Seem-Daubed-with-Hist-Sap, but the rest of Tamriel just calls it the Hist Guar. It is the only subspecies of guar known to enjoy music, so feel free to take it with you right into the tavern! No one will complain.

Ice WolfEdit

The Ice Wolf of the far north can grow to tremendous size—which is probably why the Nords of Hjaalmarch decided to ride them. Domesticating giant Ice Wolves wasn't an easy task, but it's just the kind of challenge a Nord loves. Too fierce for you? Milk-drinker!


Do you want them to remember the mount you rode in on? Domesticating the savage Kagouti to serve as a mount is a recent endeavor, and to be frank, more than a little experimental. Do you have what it takes to stay in the saddle on one of these fierce, bipedal reptiles?

Karthwolf ChargerEdit

In the valley of the Karth River, the Reach clans have domesticated the fierce ice wolves, which they have bred for size and endurance to serve as mounts—a fearsome sight indeed!

Manelord Nightmare SencheEdit

King of the Nightmare Pride, this night-black senche-tiger has burning paws and flames hissing from its face; rumor says Mehrunes Dagon is responsible. Decide for yourself!

Masked BearEdit

Both swift and strong, the Masked Bear of the Jerall Mountains is a popular mount along the high passes between Bruma and Falkreath. They're particularly common in the region around Pale Pass; mountain travelers leave offerings for them at "bear bars" along the trail, which is how they may have come to be domesticated.

Masqued "Unicorn" SteedEdit

Is that the famed and incredibly-rare creature of legend, the true Unicorn from Hircine's Oblivion realm of the Hunting Grounds? …Well, no, it's a horse with a golden horn attached to its forehead. But the effect—it's just so magical!

Mind-Shriven HorseEdit

The horrors that have fallen on the Imperial City affect mounts as well as mortals. With its equine psyche stolen by Daedric magic, the mind-shriven horse is a docile yet terrifying steed.

Nightfall Sabre CatEdit

Looking for a steed that's both fierce and impressive? The Reachmen of the upper Karth valley, who train them as mounts, claim that the Nightfall Sabre Cat is sacred to the Daedric Prince Nocturnal.

Nightmare CourserEdit

This flame-wreathed steed, black as the pits of Oblivion, is hungry for the chaos of war. Many conflicting legends surround its mysterious origins, but all agree on one thing: only the mighty could hope to control such a beast.

Painted WolfEdit

In the rugged badlands of central Hammerfell, even camels struggle to maneuver across the broken terrain. But wolves can go where even camels cannot, so the roving Redguards of the canyon lands have bred the local Painted Wolves into sure-footed mounts.

Pale Velothi GuarEdit

This stalwart mount comes from the ash-lands downwind of the volcanoes of the Velothi Mountains, and is well adapted to surviving under the harshest of conditions. And your darker adventuring outfits contrast well against its pale hide!

Palomino HorseEdit

Handsome, strong, and swift, the palomino is favored by couriers and sportsmen. It was originally bred by the Colovians of the West Weald as a hardy courser for scouts and skirmishers, but soon became a fashionable favorite among the nobility, who vie for foals from the finest bloodlines. The Counts of Skingrad insist their coaches must be drawn by teams of matched palominos—no other breed will do.

Pride-King LionEdit

The Pride-King Lions are the top predators on the savannahs of northern Elsweyr. No one but the Khajiiti, with their feline intuitions, could have persuaded these proud beasts to serve as mounts. Are you strong-willed enough to control one of these majestic beasts?

Sabre CatEdit

The Sabre Cats of Northern Tamriel are possibly even more powerful than their southern Senche cousins. They're certainly more feral and difficult to domesticate. That didn't stop the Nords of Falkreath from breaking and training them to serve as mounts!


The cliffs and escarpments of east central Elsweyr are the home of the nimble and sure-footed Senche-Cougars, who prowl the rocks hunting goats and marmots. Inevitably, they've been domesticated by their feline cousins, the Khajiit.


The Senche-Leopard was bred for bearing an armed warrior while slinking through the steamy jungles of Pellitine. But Khajiiti riders found it had broader applicability, and use it both as a fast courser for couriers, and as an elegant town mount for young Elsweyr nobles.

Shadowghost GuarEdit

Blending in with the shifting gray ash clouds on the slopes of Red Mountain, the Shadowghost Guar are the only known nocturnal breed of the species, and thus are rarely seen, even by the native Dark Elves. This makes them one of the most distinctive and desirable mounts in Morrowind—and beyond.

Shadowghost HorseEdit

Shadowghost Horses are never bred, only found, and then only on misty nights when both moons are dark. Then they are summoned from beyond by hooded Shadowghost Wranglers, roped and saddled and broken for riding by ordinary mortals. No, really!

Shadowghost SencheEdit

An oversized breed of black senche-panthers, the Shadowghost Senche is said by the Khajiit to be sacred—or rather unholy—to Namiira the Great Darkness, who sends them as mounts to bear away those who are doomed to die. Dare you ride one of these dark cats in the dead of night?

Shadowghost WolfEdit

Unlike nearly all other wolves, the Shadowghost Wolf has no pack and lives a solitary life, haunting lonely moors and wastelands, appearing only at night and rarely then. Some doubt it is a real creature of the mortal plane at all.

Silver Dawn Argent ChargerEdit

Werewolf hunting is a dirty and largely thankless business, but when a Silver Dawn member mounts their resplendent Argent Charger, they feel like the hero they really are. Sure, it's showy, but as a defender of society against the vicious, you deserve it.

Skyfire GuarEdit

This guar's bright colors were once thought to indicate that it was poisonous to touch, but it was found to be relatively harmless by an adventuresome rider. Caution! Patience is needed to bring this obstinate mount to heed.

Snow BearEdit

The Snow Bear makes a superior mount for northern climes, as it's undaunted by even the fiercest winter weather. It's also trained to carry warriors into battle: just watch its black eyes sparkle at the prospect of good fight!

Snow-Blanket Sorrel HorseEdit

This handsome breed of horse is native to the Colovian Highlands of Cyrodiil, and is a common sight from Chorrol to Bruma. The Snow-Blanket Sorrel is known for its intelligence, high spirits, and the bright, white markings on its hindquarters.

White-Gold Imperial CourserEdit

Created after years of extensive breeding, the White-Gold Imperial Courser is said to be the most beautiful horse in all of Tamriel. With its almost ethereal beauty, these horses have been owned by only the wealthiest riders—until now!

Winter Garland Dapple GrayEdit

This festive horse is sure to spread holiday cheer—with bells on! The proud owner of such a steed can be almost assured that they have the handsomest horse in town.

Witch Knight ChargerEdit

During their invasion of High Rock, the Reachmen were profoundly impressed by the power and splendor of the Breton mounted knights, and decided to breed their own hardy northern steeds to the same size as those mighty war horses. They succeeded!

Zombie HorseEdit

Mannimarco's Order of the Black Worm must be responsible for the re-animated Zombie Horse, as it was first seen in Cyrodiil as a Worm Anchorite's mount. But what else would you ride when dressed as a Scarecrow Spectre? (2015, 2017)

Your enemies will recoil in horror when you ride in to battle on a charger from beyond the grave! Mannimarco's Order of the Black Worm must be responsible for the re-animated Zombie Horse, as it was first seen in Cyrodiil as a Worm Anchorite's mount. (2016)
