Having issues with the 200 Mount achievement

I currently have 220-223 mounts on all my characters.

How come on the achievement it only says like 185 ???

218-220 Are all usable on a single character so why haven’t I gotten the achievement yet?

Are you certain you have 218-220 on a single character? In-game journal counts your total amount and the armory shows the horde ones as well.

For ex. I have 244 useable mounts on my Hunter, 245 on my DK, Journal count at 395 and Armory at 423.
Achievement count being the obviously more accurate count in this case.

Edit: Proffesion based mounts now only count on the character on which they can be used, while the order hall mounts count towards the total counter on the achievement.

I have the same problem - I show 211 but only 158 towards the achievement

I have given up trying to work out why

Go to the statistics page. Type mounts owned in the search bar. That will tell you how many mounts you have that is useable on your current side.

Do -NOT- consider the mountotal in the journal, its only an indicator of all mounts, including opposite faction ones.

I don’t have anything other than horde and each toon has no more than 2 class mounts - 4 toons total is say a deduction of 6 - so I remain confused

Class mounts like the load of paladin mounts ONLY counts on the char that can use them.

My BDK is my main - my other 3 toons have a coupe of class mounts - 211 minus 6 is not 158

Is the 211 your total mounts listed in journal?

Yes - 211 mounts - 158 towards achievement - so my other 3 toons have 53 mounts between them I can’t use?

I’m exalted with every faction that gives a mount other than 4 WOD and my other toons don’t have those either

Looked in your profile, yes, the total is 211 I see. But I also see you got a LOT of alliance mounts. Its been said repeatedly in the thread. Opposing faction mounts does -NOT- count towards the mount achievement on one side. I daresay all your alliance mounts makes exactly up for the difference together with class mounts.

I have never had an alliance toon - I can’t have alliance mounts

various gryphons, horses, mechanostriders, elekks and more in your collected mounts on your profile. Perhaps you are sharing your account with a family member or had once?

No - not one mount on that collection could be gathered by anything other than horde because I have never rolled an alliance player

go check in game, see if gryphon, horse or elekk shows up in your journal.
If they have a blue mark in the name tag on the left side, then they are ally only.

You get a gryphon in Zangamarsh - Lots is cross over in TBC WotLK and WOD

Like I said - I can’t fathom it -I don’t let it bother me - and I have just sat and mounted them all

There Is a glitch somewhere - and it appears from OP I am not alone

Think you are mixing up something. Theres exactly -0- gryphons available to the horde according to warcraftmounts.

The only explanation i can see that either youve forgotten or someone borrowed your account. You got a bunch of ally only mounts.

A suggestion, try hit the restore deleted character button on your login screen and see if any pops up.

Again - never played alliance on this account - this is mine alone

My son’s girlfriend stole my original account - and that hurt- I have been way more careful since I picked it back up in WOD

It’s possible that somehow the game has included some alliance mounts? I’ll ping a GM

But how an alliance mount gets in a horde toon ?

Answers on a postcard?

check your deleted chars on your login screen. see if any ally char pops up

But it mightve not been on that server tho, shared between all. But yes, probably best to involve a GM.

As far as I know you automatically get the Alliance mounts if you learn the Horde ones

Is correct, once you learn say a wolf from orc starting one as a Horde you earn the Alliance equilavent horse as well. These will count towards the total count on the in-game journal and Armory, whereas the achievement count will remain the same as it is obviously not useable on horde.

Class mounts and proffesion mounts only count on the toon you can use them on afaik, whereas the order hall mounts count towards the total.
