How To Obtain A Horse

Though you’ll run across the Stable Master in Kyovashad since day one in Diablo 4, you still won’t get yourself a mount from him until way later. Interact with Oskar, the Stable Master, and a “Limited Access” sign will pop up along with the lines that you must complete a quest called “Mount: Donan’s Favor.” That’s exactly what you’re supposed to do.

Complete main story quests till you reach Act 4, the second quest, “A Master’s Touch.” Keep in mind reaching this point of the campaign may take 30+ hours of gameplay, so be patient. Complete this main story quest, and finally, a new priority quest named “Mount: Donan’s Favor” will unlock. Mount: Donan’s Favor is all about you obtaining a horse from the Stable Master, who was once useless to you.

Simply interact with Oskar, the Stable Master located in Kyovashad, and choose the quest’s dialogue. Oskar will inform you about horses and how to ride them. You’ll obtain a horse after the conversation ends. The rest of your gameplay won’t just be running from point A to point B in a dreadful manner.

  • Note: Here’s some good news, your first playthrough is the only time you have to wait and unlock a horse in Diablo 4. Once you successfully obtain a Mount, you can create new characters on your account and have access to a horse since level 1. Therefore, hard work and patience to find yourself a horse is only a one-time experience that pays off in the long run.

How To Ride A Horse

Once you finally own a horse, you can ride it anywhere throughout the Sanctuary (except inside buildings). Following are the controls for mounting a horse:

  • For Keyboard: Press Z
  • For Controller: Right button on D-Pad

Players can pass through unnecessary hordes of enemies throughout the areas, all by riding on a horse. You can escape these hordes even faster by speeding up the horse thrice with a short cooldown. Press RT on your controller and space on your keyboard to speed-boost your horse.

To dismount, press B on the controller or Spacebar on Keyboard.

Lastly, you can also perform a special attack while dismounting. Press X on the controller and 1 on the keyboard to dismount between a horde of enemies. Here is an image of attacking a horde of enemies by dismounting:

Make sure to avoid taking too much damage at once while on a horse. The horse may protect you temporarily, but soon enough, it’ll kick you off upon taking excessive damage.

All Horse Customizations

Riding an armored horse in style is always better than riding a horse. To customize your horse and give it new skins or looks, revisit Oskar the Stable Master in Kyovashad.

You can select various available skins for your horse from the trader. Some skins are unlocked from Pre-ordering Diablo 4. You can also select from multiple available armors or purchase one from the Vendors option.

Another way of purchasing Cosmetics for your horse is to:

  4. Choose your desired Mount Cosmetic and purchase in exchange for Platinum.

Final Remarks

Horses are an essential part of Diablo 4, but they join your journey through the Sanctuary quite late. Keep progressing, and during Act 4, a priority quest will unlock these swift riders and save up a lot of your time on numerous occasions. Rather than facing hundreds of hordes while traveling on foot, you’ll be enjoying a horse ride while ignoring the surrounding enemies. The struggle to get horses surely pays you back. Good luck gaming!
