    • The Raptor — A hardy saurian, capable of leaping horizontally across long distances.
    • The Springer — A large jerboa-like creature, capable of jumping vertically to great heights.
    • The Skimmer — A floating manta ray-like creature, capable of hovering above water and environmental hazards.
    • The Jackal — An elemental canine, capable of blinking across short distances and of making precision jumps.
    • The Griffon — A cat-bodied bird, capable of gliding across the sky with great speed.
  • Living World Season 4, only accessible to those who own Path of Fire, introduces further mounts and a mount-related mastery track:
    • The Roller Beetle — A giant beetle that curls into a ball to race downhill and smash through walls. It wears a floating magitech saddle fashioned from asuran technology. Unlocked via Long Live the Lich.
    • The Crystal Champion mastery track adds additional skills common to all mounts.
