Daggerfall Dapple HorseEdit
- The Daggerfall Dapple is a hardy horse breed that comes from the Farwatch region of Glenumbra between Daggerfall and Camlorn. Known for its endurance, it's a favorite of long-distance riders.
Dapple Gray PalfreyEdit
- Elegant and intelligent, this breed of horse is a favorite among the nobles of Cyrodiil.
Dark Aeon WolfEdit
- The corrupting presence of Dark Aeon can twist the local wildlife, such as this wolf, into crystalline creatures. Green tendrils accompany you as you race on its back, providing you both with an otherworldly presence.
The Dark Aeon Wolf is available as a radiant apex-level reward in Frost Atronach Crates. Its default name is "Aeonrunner".
Dark Opaline SteedEdit
- The result of a boastful Khajiiti mage's bizarre transmutation ritual, the Dark Opaline Steed shimmers with blues and purples, and waves of colorful light trail behind it. Course through any environment while looking stylish and almost ephemeral!
The Dark Opaline Steed is available as a radiant apex-level reward in Frost Atronach Crates. Its default name is "Shimmerdream".
- These magical creatures have a special relationship to Y'ffre the nature god, and seem to draw strength from the very bones of the earth beneath their hooves. It's a privilege for a mortal rider to be borne by such an enchanted beast.
The Dawnwood Indrik was obtained by evolving the Nascent Indrik mount. It was briefly seen being ridden by a player in the ESO Summerset Gameplay Trailer. It is no longer possible to evolve a Nascent Indrik into a Dawnwood Indrik as of the conclusion of the 2019 Jester's Festival. Its default name is "Sparkle".
Death Mask Sabre CatEdit
- Most inhabitants of Skyrim hate and loathe necromancy, but those Nords who do stoop to raising the dead tend to go all in, wallowing in death and its symbols. It was no doubt such Nord necromancers who bred the skull-faced Death Mask Sabre Cats as mounts.
- Bred for size and savagery from the fierce timber wolves of the southern Jerall Mountains, the Doom Wolf has been adopted as the mount of choice by the secretive and deadly Dark Brotherhood.
The Doom Wolf is a black wolf with glowing red eyes previously available in the Crown Store for 2,500 . Its default name is "Nightfur". It makes a distorted sound when howling.
A promotional code for the Doom Wolf was included with purchases of The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood story for The Elder Scrolls: Legends, although it only works for PC/Mac. As of 3/8/2019, it is no longer possible to get a Doom Wolf promo code from a Legends purchase.
- Ancient legends from the time of the Dragon Wars tell of Dragon Knights riding into battle mounted on colossal flaming wolves. Were they wolf mounts mystically imbued with Dragonfire? Flame Atronachs conjured in the form of wolves? No one knows.
Dragonscale Barded BearEdit
- Dragonscale bard is just about the heaviest armor one can put on a mount, but bears bred as mounts are so strong they scarcely seem to notice it.
Dragonscale Barded CamelEdit
- Frankly, compared to war horses, bear mounts, and even saddle guaars, it's hard for Camels to look magnificent—until you dress them in Dragonscale Bard. Then look out!
Dragonscale Barded GuarEdit
- "This one doesn't sell many Guars here at the Riverhold Stables because Khajiit are folk who value their natural dignity and prefer not to ride so silly a beast. But a Guar in Dragonscale Bard is a thing of beauty!" — Master Groom Zarbi'dahuz
Dragonscale Barded SencheEdit
- "Our distant cousins, the Senche-Mounts, look so majestic in Dragonscale Bard, like creatures who've just stepped out of an ancient wall-frieze in Dune. Perhaps these pesky Dragons have a use after all, yes?" — Master Groom Zarbi'dahuz
Dragonscale Barded War-HorseEdit
- "Dragons are a pain in the tailbones, yes? But their scales make such superb steed armor! The Dragonscale Barded War-Horse may be the sharpest mount this one has ever seen!" — Master Groom Zarbi'dahuz
Dragonscale Barded WolfEdit
- "I had always thought the Helkarn Wolf to be Elsweyr's finest Wolf mount, but that was before I saw a cavalry Wolf in Dragonscale Bard. Could a mount look any more martial?" — Master Groom Zarbi'dahuz
Dragonscale Frost SencheEdit
- According to the notebooks of Corvus Direnni, the Frost Senche-Panther may actually be a form of atronach summoned from a plane known as the Fourth Sinus of Takubar. Why it remains in Tamriel where it willingly submits to the orders of mortals is unknown.
Dragonscale Solar HorseEdit
- "I have been fortunate enough to have personally glimpsed a Solar Horse on an Anequine morning, and I say with conviction that it must be a creature of Magrus, the Cat's Eye, and no other." —Moon-Bishop Hunal
Dragonscale Storm WolfEdit
- "I would speculate that the Storm Wolf is the result of an experiment by a powerful Destruction mage in which a wild canine was subjected to prolonged exposure to a Meip Glyph of Shock." —Gabrielle Benele, Wizard
- With their glowing yellow eyes and flashy golden barding, these veteran steeds serve their Dragon-slaying riders with nobility and style. Be sure to keep some sugar cubes handy—they have a taste for sweets that rivals the Khajiit!
Dread-Aurelian Charger is an upcoming mount. Its default name is "Sunrise".
- 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.
The Dro-m'Athra Senche is a black senche with glowing blue eyes and streaks on its body. It appears in a flash of blue smoke when summoned, and leaves behind glowing pawprints and smoke as it runs. It was previously available from the Crown Store for 4,000 , and can also be found in Dwarven Crown Crates as a Legendary-level reward. Its default name is "Soul-Eater". The Dro-m'Athra Senche has unique sound effects, and leaves behind a trail of deep blue glowing paw prints as it moves.
Druadach Mountain BearEdit
- Originally tamed and bred as mounts by the ancient Grimfang Reach clan, these riding bears became popular among Nords who captured them in raids. Despite their inherent docility, these bears anger swiftly when threatened.
Duo-Dynamo Burnished SpiderEdit
- "Want a distraction? If you need to head overland to your mark, take your partner with you on a shiny Dwarven spider, make a showy arrival to draw eyes away from your third, and then get to business. Never fails … someone. Not me."—Dahnadreel
The Duo-Dynamo Burnished Spider is an upcoming mount. It carries one driver and one passenger. Its default name is "Jangleclash".
Duo-Dynamo Dwarven SpiderEdit
- "Clearly the Dwarves liked to travel in pairs now and again, so they built this two-seated animunculi for that purpose. My partner and I adore using it on market day!"—Delyna Ulvel
The Duo-Dynamo Dwarven Spider is an upcoming mount. It is the first multi-passenger mount available in the Elder Scrolls Online. It was previewed by the developers in the ESO Live Q3 DLC First Look and was disabled after public testing resulted in false account locks in Patch 6.1.0 and 6.2.0. It carries one driver and one passenger. Its default name is "Clatterclank".
- Scholar of the Dwemer Guylaine Marilie theorized that bear vamidiums were animunculi mounts reserved only for those Deep Elves of high rank or status. "Imagine a noble in full armor on a Dwarven Bear Mount," he wrote. "What could be more impressive?"
- Dwarven Camels are most often found among the ruins of the desert-dwelling Rourken clan of the Dwemer, who left northeast Tamriel and traveled west to found cities in the remote back-country of Hammerfell.
- Guar vamidiums, or Dwarven Guar Mounts, are most often associated with Dwemer sites in Morrowind—as might be expected, since that's where guar are most in use as pack and riding animals.
- The ancient Deep Elves made animunculi of many kinds, imitating nature with mechanical constructs. The Dwarven word for mount was "vamidium," but their equine automata are more commonly known as Dwarven Horses.
- Since nearly all Dwemer sites are in northeast Tamriel, where the only large feline is the sabre cat, scholars of Dwarven civilization have long wondered why they chose to make animunculi mounts that resemble the senche-tigers of the south. It's a mystery!
- Of all the Dwemer animunculi, the Dwarven Spider is perhaps the most familiar and iconic! This versatile construct comes in several variations, and it should come as no surprise that one of them is a vamidium, or mechanical mount. Clankin'!
The Dwarven Spider Mount was available for a limited time in the Crown Store for 3,000 . It can rise up on its hind legs and turn on a red light. Its default name is "Skitters".
Dwarven War HorseEdit
- This loyal horse has been trained for warfare, and will stick with you through every kind of conflict. As a bonus, it comes outfitted in ancient Dwarven horse armor.
The Dwarven War Horse is exclusively available as a bonus in the Collector's Edition of The Elder Scrolls Online: Morrowind. Riding skill does not affect this mount's appearance. Its default name is "Mzangth".
- Dwarven Wolves, or Lupine Vamidiums, are most often seen in proximity to Dwemer ruins of northern and western Skyrim, where wolves are most common in the wild. Its loping gait is said to give the most comfortable ride of any mechanical mount.
