How do Gnome Warriors get mounts?

New Player Help and Guides
Can someone tell me how Gnome Warriors get mounts? I'm seeing people with mounts already at lvl 20 and i don't know how to get one.
First, you need riding training. As a Warrior (and this holds true for most classes) you would visit a riding trainer, not your class trainer. There's a riding trainer in all major cities. Once you have riding training, you'll want to head to Steelgrill's Depot near Kharanos, outside of Ironforge, to buy a robochicken.
Thanks my fellow female gnome!
I haven't played my gnomes in a while but I think there's also a riding trainer out at Steelgrill's Depot with the mount vendor.

I know there used to be, but I don't know if it's still there.
On a future note, your class has nothing to do with how or when you get mounts (with the exception of druids, warlocks, and paladins, but even then they just have bonus stuff).

Yep, still there, it's just north of Kharanos.

Your race does affect whether or not you even get a mount if you're a worgen though. So class and race do play a part in the equation, but most characters will have to buy their own mounts and training like usual.

The riding trainer doesn't sell mounts.
I should note that you should have gotten a letter in the mail automatically at level 20 which gave you a quest sending you to your race's riding trainer. Unless that's been changed while I wasn't looking, of course.

They don't do that anymore, unfortunately. :(
That's a shame. It was a big help when I was on my first character. How would I ever have known I qualified to get a mount if not for that?

Because now you get a message on your screen telling you that you're able to learn a new level of riding when you level up. The same goes for learning spells and abilities.

the guy 2 ft from him does. :)

it's a gnome with maybe 5-6 mounts surrounding him in an arc.
Can someone help me, I just got membership. But when I didn't have it, I got my warrior to lvl 20 and for some reason Its not letting me get a mount, I accepted the quest but I don't even see it being tracked. I pulled up my map to see if it's just not being tracked but it's not even there. and I have no clue how to get a mount now
Ohhhh nvm, I went to sleelgrills depot and that's the only place you can buy your first mount I guess, NVm haha

No problem. Feel free to post here with any other questions you might have. However, you ought to start a fresh thread for every question rather than posting in a years-old dead thread. It will help save confusion for people. Welcome to WoW.

First mount for gnomes, yes. The other races each have their own mount vendors, with their racial mounts.

You can get those other mounts by either making characters of the other races and leveling them to 20 (or 40 if you want the armored appearance), since mounts are now account wide. OR by getting your Gnome to exalted reputation status with the other Alliance racial factions.

You increase your faction rep by doing quests from quest givers tied to that faction, OR for by wearing their tabard in Dungeons. Tabards are available from the faction Quartermasters, located near the Flight Point of each associated city.

This tabard shortcut only works for the Racial factions, and any other faction that lets you buy the tabard before you hit "exalted".
For other factions that have a tabard, but require exalted rep to use it, the tabard is intended more as a way to show off your achievement of grinding the rep.
