This is a very fast three-person mount that carries vendors.
As I read the description, it implies that you can empty your bags and possibly repair your armor just by summoning your mount. Sounds pretty OP :-/ Hoping there's a pretty hefty price tag or requirement attached.
EDIT: 15k gold. Excellent!
You need to gain reputation with the
to get a discount on this mount, it's sold by
I checked the vendor last night (9/24/2008), and the price is now up to 20,000g.
This item might be deprecated soon, if not already. Aside from the reference of this item, Mei Francis only has the new Traveler's Tundra Mammoth. Wowhead might be slow with build updates, I'm not sure.
The new price listed of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth was 20,000g; not 15k as reported above.
This item is pretty fun. It is huge (about the size of two mounts stacked on top) and you can take some other people for ride.
Used to be
Grand Caravan Mammoth
for 15k g. Was buggy and apparently removed from the vendor. You can now only get this one, on which the vendors do infact spawn, however, as of the current build others cannot mount onto it.
anyone know if the vendor can repair...and if possible to have the vendor summoned inside an instance even when mounts cant be summoned?
Just imagine "fun" of having this mount on the top of a vendor. It's really TOO big.
They should make it smaller or change NPC interaction mechanic IMO.
I heard that the two vendors are a reagent one, and one that can repair items.
Edit : Confirmed. Goblin repair guy, and Troll reagent vedor for horde. Appear to be hostile (non attackable) to alliance, and friendly to horde with no faction to reduce costs on items / repair.
What exactly do the other players have to do to mount this? 'use item' open chest type clicking?
(1) To buy it? Probably any level, although you need level 60 and riding at 150 to use (learn) it.
(2) You can sell items to them, as well as buy items, which include, but are not limited to, food, drink and reagents.
(3) It can be used anywhere you can use other mounts
To mount it they have to be in your party, and you have to eject at least 1 of the vendors, then they just right click it when in range. Kinda like a siege engine.
At neutral it is 20 000, but you get a 5% price discount for every reputation step towards exalted, so at exalted you would get a 20% discount.
Which means 20 000 * 0.8 = 16 000 is the cost of the mount at exalted.
I was wondering, say a tiny little blood elf mounts this mount but a tauren decides to hitch a ride in one of the passenger seats, will the mount scale to accomadate the tauren or will the tauren just look giant on this mount.
HOLY $%^&! 16.000g for now according to
Every time you summon this mount you will start with two vendors sitting in the passenger seats. You need to use the pet bar (Ctrl-1 and Ctrl-2) to remove the vendors if you want players to ride along. Players who want to ride will also need to be in your party. You can kick players off your mount the same way you do vendors, or you can simply remove them from your group.
Re-summoning the mount will bring the vendors back.
I can imagine drive-by on this mount xD
ally vs horde like gang wars, and this is our lowrider :)
You need a 'new' vendor on it you simply dismount and remount.
yesterday I bought this mount and took the chance to play some kind of taxi role in low level areas. I went to Stranglethorn and catched up someone who wanted to ride Tanaris. During that way I cought someone that wanted to reach feralas, so i took them for a ride. They were very pleased and impressed and enjoyed the ride. So i did. This mount is worth every penny of its cost, even for the fact that you have two vendors with you. My passengers gave me some gold for the ride and it was very funny.
And to clear something up here are some summarized facts about this mount:
What you need for this mount: The Wotlk expansion, 16-20k gold (depends on your Kirin Tor reputation), 150 riding, LvL 60
There is no level requirement to take a seat
The mammoth takes up to 3 persons, including yourself, resulting in 2 passengers max.
At neutral it costs 20.000 gold, 16.000g at exalted with Kirin Tor
Upon mounting you have two vendors by your side. One for things like reagents and repairs, one for things like food, water, arrows, ammunition, flint and tinder and a Draenic Silk Robes
To dismiss them you have three new Icons atop your action bars. Two to ask them to leave, one to unmount. If you can't see them you could press Ctrl+1 or Ctrl+2 by default.
You can dismiss your passengers by clicking the corresponding icon atop your action bar (left / right seat). Doing so will make them jump out of it. Even wenn falling, but thats not very kind, isn't it? :D
There is currently a bug that if you dismiss the food vendor first, someone mounts and then you dismiss the other NPC, no one else can take a ride. You will have to dismiss both NPCs or the repair NPC first.
No, the money for repairs do not go into your money bag ;)
Mounting up and down takes more time than with a usual mount (1-2 seconds)
Upon skinning, mining or casting that would usually unmount you automatically will not work on the mammoth. You will only get the message "You can't do this now". So if you're going to farm herbs, mines or something else another mount would be a better choice.
The mount has got 5342 HP
The mount itself is Level 80, so if you ride into a lvl80 mob and you are below the mounts level it will attack you. Otherwise it will attack the mount.
It seems that speed enhancing abilities like Aspect of the Pack will burst the mammoth's speed, making it the fastest 100% carrier you will see :)
Interesting: In duels the mount is taking damage when mounted.
It will transport the flag carrier in PvP without loosing the flag
You cannot be polymorphed while riding the mount
You can do any emote you can imagine while mounted, and so your passengers can do. If you dance, you and your passengers will stay dancing until canceled. Really cool!
The mammoth does not have any kind of "roar" emote if you press the space bar like the draenei elephant. If you stand still the mammoth just jumps.
The mammoth is acting like a common mount now
Just bought this mount today. My rep wasnt that great, but i got it for 19K. I love the fact that i can vendor trash while out questing, buy water, or repair. Poisons, ammo, what isnt included? i can even buy a 1970's looking dress (brown and yellow).
Taking your a lowbie friend to run him through some dungeon... easy now, no more waiting for that slowpoke to show up.
Get your crack commando tower taking team for AV all in one vehicle.
So far, this is my favorite part of WOTLK. worth the gold if you have it.
The most fun I've had so far was offering the hunter in my guild who always used to kill me with misdirects a ride..
I told him how the mount won't die from falling damage, and we promptly jumped out of the Dalaran sewer exit.
About halfway down I ejected him. Good times!
The mount is
affected by Crusader Aura.
Edit: At the time of the post, the above statement was true. The mount was considered a vehicle and was not benefited by crusader aura. That has since changed.
As noted above, mount speed increases like Crusader Aura don't affect the mammoth, only run speed increases like Aspect of the Pack. And Crusader Aura never stacks with anything anyway. So 130% is the best you'll get.
Very nice but 20k! who the hell has 20k i mean gawd damn. Way to encourage some people to use those rip off gold buying websight bravo!
BEWARE - There's a bug where you can die of exhaustion while mounted on a boat. But it IS as sweet as it sounds. Exciting how OP it is for BGs.
Kirin Tor reputation lowers the price. At exalted mount costs "only" 16,000g.
I bought this mount yesterday. To me, it seems the summon time is the same as a standard mount. Dismount time is instant for me. I press the red dismount arrow and I can immediately start running, shapeshift etc.
Vendors on the mount are great! You can even buy/sell/repair on the move. This mount will save money over time by not having to use repair bots and can be summoned inside the instance for Malygos as well. As a druid, I love always having reagents with me and being able to sell junk loot.
I bought the mount for 17k and have no buyers remorse at all. I have a second account and this mount will make it easy leveling alts because they can jump on the mount and have 100% speed.
On a level 60 toon I purchased and returned this after two weeks for my 20,000g back. This mount has annoying features which are addressed above and which for me stood as deal breakers. Here's a post which includes a screen shot of some of the issues I had with the Tundra mount as well as how I got the refund:
Screen shot of successful arguement with second tier of Blizzard GM support:
1. The mount requires too much time to mount and dismount - an extra .5 second - Very annoying. An expensive mount should activate instantly or in LESS time.
2. Clicking forward on the mount upon using it often sends it running in reverse direction from the direction faced upon mounting it.
3. When mounted, there is an odd spot for actually being able to speak to NPC's or use the mailbox. It's off to the left side and is much more difficult than with a standard swift ground mount.
4. When traversing shallow water (puddles, or even the UC canals) this mount ejects you, whereas standard swift ground mounts do not.
5. On any other ground mount you can cast a spell or attack a mob and it automatically dismounts you and you're instantly able to combat mobs. With this mount if you approach and aggro a mob, you can't immediately attack, instead, the mobs are on you while you have to perform the extended, animated dismount. Those precious seconds are often the difference between winning and losing, and in this case are ALWAYS a disadvantage from what we're used to on a standard mount.
6. This mount cannot /follow another mount.
It's unarguably the most impressive purchasable status symbol, however once you're past that you'll end up using another mount while playing the game, because those issues make this mount a burden and a lemon. Will Blizzard fix this? I very much doubt it. If like me you are dissatisfied, then the route to getting back your gold is to insist that this should not be considered a mount, because it fails to meet the expectations we have from any other mount we have owned. Getting back the gold felt great and I've used it to purchase swift flight for four alts -- much more practical and much more satisfying than having this on one toon. Especially when the only time I used it was to occasionally strut around Orgrimmar. 20,000g is too much to pay for something with so many annoying problems.
I noticed a funny little bug.
If you start with first mounting up on your mammoth and then you mount with another mount again on the mammoth and start to run.
Then while you are running, hit the hotkey for demounting/mounting your mammoth, since you are now running, something funny happens. You do not jump down on your other 100% mount, you keep running on with your character, with 100% increased run speed! You can see your mount buff is on, but the mount will not be shown. Interesting.
You can also run while you are sapped by a rogue, pretty interesting that the mammoth can be steered when the driver is not really able to :p
exist any macro for call "mount" without vendors? for example, i want it use in BG, and dont want vendors everytime up, want free sits for my teammates.
This mount carries 2 npc's.
The "Sons of Hodir" reputation mount, Reins of the Grand Ice Mammoth (
sold by Quartermaster Lillehoff in Storm Peaks (Dun Niffleheim) for 10,000 gold, does NOT carry
2 NPC vendors - as per the item description. The Ice Mammoth DOES carry 3 people.
Calls forth the Grand Ice Mammoth! This is a very fast mammoth! Allows two passengers to board. Must be parties with the driver.
Teaches you how to summon this mount. This is a very fast mount."
No comments on vendors.
ONLY the Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth (
) carries NPCs.
Calls forth the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth, complete with two buddies! This is a very fast mammoth!
Teaches you how to summon this mount. This is a very fast three-person mount
that carries vendors.
So get to Exalted with Dalaran and spend 16,000 gold. Because, the 10,000 you spend in
Storm Peaks will NOT give you the Repair and Regeant NPCs.
I took a portal to Dalaran as a lvl 70 mage, accepted the quest "Learning to leave and return: The magical way" from Archmage Celindra just in front of spawn area, just accepting this got me Friendly with Kirin Tor. Mei Francis was just outside and I bought the Traveling Tundra Mammoth off her for 18999g 99s 98c. It is my understanding that mages start off at friendly with Kirin Tor and can buy this mount at this price without having to farm any rep.
for most races, this mount will be about the same size as normal ones.
for the few bigger races, grand mounts are smaller than normal ones. yikes :s
This thing is huge, its gotta be at least 8 gnomes high!
Yeah, just tried it as well - it has definitely been hotfixed.
Seems there are only 6 types of Mammoths available:
Reins of the Black War Mammoth
Reins of the Grand Ice Mammoth
Reins of the Ice Mammoth
Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
Reins of the Grand Black War Mammoth
Reins of the Black War Mammoth
Reins of the Grand Ice Mammoth
Reins of the Ice Mammoth
Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
Reins of the Wooly Mammoth
Reins of the Grand Black War Mammoth
Some are more easy to obtain than others.
omg 2c! That is loads! And as for mesmashudie's comment, no the mount will not scale to size so a tauren with Winterfall fire water and heroism when they mount this will do absolutely nothing to the size though it may cause the Mammothe to tip...
Another great thing I noticed about his mount (sorry if it was posted above already and I didn't notice) is that because it is a vehicle, it takes fall damage not you, if you fall off a cliff riding it, it dies and despawns but you take no damage. :D
I got my "TTM" on 21 Dec for 16k gold. Aspect of The Pack affect the mount, so i travel more fast... 130%... imba in AV Horde travel with 2 players.
Its the best mount if you are hunter!
Must be kept away from gnomes.
He's not complaining that there is no way to exit the mount so in his situation, that command would be useless. He's complaining that there is no way to automatically exit the mount the way you can with a normal mount (this was added at some point pre-bc, I believe).
So, lets say, I want to be able to do that. OH NOES blizz didn't put it in! How about a macro!
#showtooltip Divine Shield
/cast Divine Shield
OH SNAP! It works now!
I bought this hunt and I do not know ask my friends for a walk, as I do? What command use?
Please help me

Don't get depressed asking yourself why you keep crashing into houses and such. It's because the mammoth's eyes are covered by a big plate of metal.
it seems that as of Patch 3.0.8 whether this is a bug or not....
The Traveler's Tundra Mammoth takes no fall damage. it isn't hurt, doesn't die, and the passangers don't get hurt either.
a massive downside of this mount is it has no water clearance. if it gets ancle deep you get kicked off. while the PvP mammoth can have nothing above water but "my" own head and still go.
Captcha code: uqq2q
These vehicle mounts are odd. You can mount a second mount while riding one. For example I can mount my mammoth then mount my wings of the ebon blade, but i cannot fly. I will get the no fly zone debuff in dalaran and forces me to dismount from both mounts.
Oh and you cannot double mount any mount, for example when trying to mount my wind rider it say you can't do that right now.
Can you choose by your self, what vendors that is on it?
I'm not sure if this is just a rumor or not, but I was sure it would be listed here in these comments if it were true. Since nobody has said
about it after having read all comments, I might as well ask:
Is it true that your passengers can attack while mounted on the mammoth?
hmm this vs mechano-chopper
functionality vs looks
taste great less filling
I found a bug that allows you to ride this mount even if you don't own one.
It requires a person in the party with the mount (Of course)
1) They summon the mount and then dismount
2) You spam click to enter the mount
3) You're on the mount! :O
Seeing as this is technically a vehicle, it stays around for about 1-2 seconds (The time it takes to dismount)
Since patch 3.1, the mount is no longer a vehicle and thus you take fall-damage. It's now a mount + vendors (no special features apart from that). You can no longer target it either, it directly targets the main rider as all other mounts.
ok, my guild master just bought this thing, and me and him had a great laugh while jumping of the high towers in dalaran.
now we have even bigger plans, and i was wondering if theres any way you can get this baby to slowfall.
ok to hypitheticly speaking a gnome climbs into the passenger seat on the right and the taurin climbs in on the left... how far can the mammoth go b4 he falls and squishes the taurin? it's the laws of physics people gravity comes into play here. oh well suppose we'll have taurin burgers after this happens...
i forgot to mention when the mammoth falls sideways and crushes the taurin, the great force of leverage will throw the gnome into a wall and most likely splatter him... this mammoth is gonna create a huge mess...
Changes to the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth on the 3.1 PTR:
Mammoth now behaves like a regular mount and not like a vehicle.
Dismounting is instantaneous.
You will take fall damage when mounted.
"Aspect of the Pack" will no longer boost the mount's speed.
A new emote has been added when pressing SPACE while the mount is standing - the mount will now rise on two legs and roar.
So I finally got this mount on Saturday, March 7, 2009 after a coupe months of farming. I think it's pretty cool, until it gets nerfed to a normal mount because then I can't jump off of Dalaran and still be mounted and alive when I land.
It's also a good 16kg worth because you get 2 seats, which can carry friends or vendors.
But it's always sad to to see you go from rich to poor. :(
i just got mine on my blood elf rogue last night, took me a year to save up that much gold, lol
in my opinion, since we pay 16,000-20,000g for it, any money spent on the vendors by another player should be given to the person who owns the mount
and i thought this was pretty weird, the mount is able to be killed in combat
i was in av last night after i got it, and a freakin dwarf comes up, and doesnt attack me, he attacks the mount, i was like wtf, when he killed it, i couldnt summon it for the rest of the battle
i was only able to get back on when i got back to ogrimmar
i personally think this was just a bug
but yeah, just to be safe, dont ride this in battlegrounds, lol
I haven't seen this error posted, so I thought I'd see if anyone else had the same problem. On the "Pets" tab of the character sheet, when this mount is selected it shows up as the alliance verison of the mount (my character being an orc).
So, I wondered if anyone else had noticed this and if it was going to be fixed in the patch. I paid 16k gold for this mount, I want the correct version to show up in my character sheet. :S
Edit: This has been fixed in Patch 3.1
Black War Mammoth
this one can pass through low doorways and small gates! I was really glad about it, when discovered. Decided to share, cause it was one of the main reasons why i was not using Black war Mammoth and didnt want to buy traveler's one...
edit: not any more :(
Here are a few notes about it that I couldn't find answers to when I was hunting for information, as well as probably going over old ground.
The vendor sells enough food and water types to cover all levels.
The arrows and bullets sold are equivalent to
The reagents include various levels of
< insert your class here >
seeds/powders/candles and so forth.
Can confirm that there is no faction discount on either item purchases or repair costs.
Once you boot the vendors, you can't interact with them, and they'll despawn soon after booting them from the mount.
Any 'automatically purchase/sell' add-ons that you use will work fine with these vendors.
Behaviour, Appearance and Control
Currently (patch 3.0.9) the mount animates like it's a vehicle, and it does have it's own health pool and so on, but it does not activate the vehicle interface. Instead, your pet bar gives two options for booting the vendors. Booting one does invoke a GCD (at least a pet-based GCD) so booting both off in rapid succession isn't quite so rapid.
The mount doesn't appear to be any larger than any other mammoth, but does in fact have a smaller collision box so it does fit through certain doorways and places that other mammoths may not. You do obviously get graphics being clipped depending on where you're going.
Ignore the misinformation regarding this being usable in Northrend only - it works anywhere that any other mount would.
Just like most other vehicles, the dismounting animation takes a brief moment, and while it doesn't activate the GCD, you cannot cast spells while this quick animation is playing. Hopefully the 3.1 patch that makes these 'vehicle-like' mounts more like normal mounts will change this.
Similarly, trying to cast a spell while mounted on this will not auto-dismount you, regardless of any settings controlling this behaviour. If this really is a major hassle, macro everything to include...
/script VehicleExit()... as the first line, and then spam your spell until it casts. Again, 3.1 will hopefully remedy this.
Your party members cannot directly choose which side-saddle they'll be put on. It seems to prefer to put players in the right-side saddle first if it's available. If you really have a pressing need to put someone in the left-side saddle, only boot the left-side vendor, have your friend hop on, then boot the right-side vendor if you like.
Unlike some vehicles which are 'odd' to control, the Tundra Mammoth is just like any other mount, except that instead of a little animation + sound when you attempt to jump while stationary, this mount actually jumps on the spot.
i got a question real quick about footrot's comment
so the way this works is, when u first summon the mount, the vendors are on there, then u can remove the vendors to let somebody sit in the saddle, and bring the vendors back at any time too?
i was planning on buying this, but i wanted to clear this up first, i thought u had to choose between multi-passenger or vendors
so all i want to know is, after u boot the vendors, can they come back at any time, or is there like a cool down or something?
Keep in mind that vendors are always whining when u dismount like "that's how u do, mon! leaving us behind?". That is quite annoying, since it happens every single time u get out of it :S
awwww this thing would be awesome if i had the cash like really 16000k g like i no if i ever get that much i am gonna buy it just buy it because and be like why the hell did i buy this thing stupid but then when i look at it i just wanna do dailies really bad i guess ill just settle for the wg vendor one but it would be sweet if i could get the one from voa
Patch 3.1. On live servers.
It works just like any other mount in game now, just that it got two vendors on it, who can be kicked off. The animation when pressing space while standing still has also been changed, it now animate like the Black War Mammoth. It also scale with your size just like Black War Mammoth (no more rushing into the Orgrimmar auction house). The earth does no longer shake when you move. Simply a normal ground epic mount with two vendors on it... who has switched side! Mojodishu is now on the right side and Drix Blackwrench on the left.
No more jumping from the Dalaran tower. /cry
Maybe it's changed, but last week (prior to patch 3.1), while waiting to go into Naxx, I clicked on someone's mount who was definitely not in our raid, and I mounted her mount just fine. Surprised me! I think I annoyed her too, she started running all around the place, circling and jumping - it was like an impromptu bull ride woo hoo! I could not click anything to dismount / exit, and finally got back on my own two feet when she dismounted the mount. For a time there, I thought I might miss my raid hahaha.
I can't wait to get this mount. It is great way to earn money from people who do repair from you. My guild mates got fortune on this :)
Just got mine today! Be warned though, you will be whispered by alot of people asking for a ride! Also, it's no longer a vehicle, so don't attempt to jump off of dalaran and expect to live like I did.
That's my dream. When my friend pushed me back into wow, he got this and we always traveled with this remarkable mount. Now i got what i was suppose to buy and farming gold for it. I have patience and so far my gain of per month is 4k gold. I'm planning to have it soon summer.
Try having someone get on the mount with you when they're on a reindeer mount, you'll be in for a surprise.
I bought this for the full 20k and don't regret one copper of the decision.
I did however have to take a look around in order to figure out how to eject people from the back. I have a highly customized UI so my minimap isn't in the right spot, therefore the picture of the mammoth you'd normally use to eject people is out of sight on my screen.
After reading a bunch, turns out you can either use a minimap mod like sexybot and update the lua code to make the mammoth icon movable, or you can use this macro I made. Push it once and it will ride the mammoth, push it again and it will ditch the righthand troll vendor so a friend can ride:
/run if IsMounted() == 1 then EjectPassengerFromSeat(2) else CallCompanion("MOUNT",4) end
Now if I could only figure out how to add it to my cold weather / I am in dalaran or not / can I fly here or not macro and combine the two somehow:
/script if (((GetZoneText()=="Dalaran") and (GetSubZoneText() ~="Krasus' Landing")) or (GetZoneText()=="Wintergrasp") or not IsFlyableArea()) then CallCompanion("MOUNT",4) else CallCompanion("MOUNT",2) end
-Iranon from Durotan
The reagent vendor is
For all you curious RPers out there, she does not sell RP robes like the Alliance version.
Cheap shot, Blizz.
I spose...But..For 20k..They should make a buff or something that goes on you when you equipt the mount or something..a buff...While on this mount you are unable to be stunned or something like that
Or.. They could have made the ground speed 125% making more people want the mount then more people would know about it..work for 20k gold..play longer more subscription blizz gets happy we get happy we got a faster mount...
Plus this mount is very helpful to alts or something all good :) i love it i got one and im going for the other mammoths aswell
will this mount beocome a level 40 epic ground mount in patch 3.2 and will the price be dropped any i cant wait for 3.2 i am only level 44 so level 40 epics should be alot cheaper because unless you have a main then there is no way to make that much cash maybe it wil be a 1/5 of the price hopfully
Costs 20, 000 gold. Drops 1, 000 gold for each reputation level with the Kirin Tor, reaching 16, 000 gold and exalted.
This mount has 2 passenger seats which are occupied by 2 vendors at mount summon. The goblin repairs and sells reagents. The troll sells food, water, and ammo. The vendors sell/repair at full price, no 20% faction discount and therefore many people, including myself, like to buy my reagents and repairs at places where I have the faction discount, like Dalaran.
However, there is no faction discount for selling items to the vendors so the vendor are useful for clearing out your bags. And you can do it while on the go.
Prior to my purchase of this mount, I had the Grand Ice Mammoth so I didn't need a 2 passenger mount. However, it was this or the bike and this one lets me sell to the vendor so I went with it.
Hopefully in the future they will add faction discounts to the vendors, at least for the owner. Until then, this mount isn't much different from the Grand Ice Mammoth.
How do u make Multiple People get on the mount? The TUndra Mammoth?
And me sadly, was 16k short =P
How the hell do I eject a vendor of the mount? and can I get it back if i change my mind ?
Hmmm....if you get this on a 49 twink.... please take a break and go outside :P
this mount is awesome..but..i dont know how to carry 2 more ppl..can someone tell me please
As an Engineer with Repair bots and a Mechano hog, I see this mount as a giant, though useful, piece of steaming crap.
I HIGHLY reccomend the mecho-hog over this any day of the week.
its WAY more original than the mammoth, wich is boring as hell.
Even if you don't have repair bots, this thing is really useless, because u cant pull it out in most instances, and if your gonna go outside, you might as well fly your epic flyer to the repair npc in about 20 seconds.
but man i wish my hog carried 2 passangers, One in side car, one behind the driver
I think it should be noted that while it can make traveling in cities difficult, the height provided allows one to run through small rivers and streams that a smaller mount would otherwise swim (and thus slow down to swim speed).
how do i get the vendors on it? all i know is that it can carry 2 people
the vendors will give you gold every hour....you just need to press ALT + F4
or set up base camp with /camp
As of patch 3.2.2 /camp only works in a main city or while RESTING! please remember this!
Just as with all vehicles with multiple seats, you get a small portrait under the minimap, hoover your mouse over the 2 yellow dots to see the names of them, and right click and "Eject <name>" to kick them off.
After an year I finally decided to get it. I never did a better choice in my 5 years of wow playing.
It changes the way you are playing - its simply amazing - a must have mount. Save gold, farm your ass, you will cherish every moment with this mount.
If you're using a bar addon you won't be able to see the eject button, type:
/run for i = 1, 2 do EjectPassengerFromSeat(i) end
ingame to eject your vendors so that your friends can get in
When you buy this you get 2 people, and a mammoth for 20k gold. Dosnt that mean that you just bought 2 slaves? Didnt know the kirin tor approved of slavery :P
My favorite thing to do since I got this mount is to run through a group of mobs and once they start chasing me eject Hakmud. The visual is hilarious.
Just as the Cenarion War Hippogrpyh, and the "Of the Shattered Sun" title, along with others, from TBC and Vanilla WoW, this has been implemented to attract the attention of players and to get them to spend their gold on it. They use items, rewards and titles like this to balance the amount of gold on one server. Other than repairs, buying the odd item from a vendor, and reagents, most gold on servers is recycled back to players on said server, so eventually people are going to say "HAI, I HAS 100000000000000000 GOLD AND NUTTIN TO DOES WIT IT"... well, along those lines if they have bad grammer. Getting players to spend their gold on things like these limits the probability of a total monopoly being carried out on a server, and prevents 'Johnny Never Went to School' from getting his 100000000000000000 gold.
Requires Level 40
Hmm....*buys for level 40 alt to make people go "WTF."*
There we go
(now with a working link)
so you gonna pay 16000g to buy this and run a taxi service for 5 silver a trip...
man you signed a bad bank loan. I hope you get a goverment bailout
Hell, I'm from the US and I'm hoping you're not referring to a Gov't bailout from the US.
you expect? anti-money?
I don't understand why people buy this. You can get one at the prize of 8500 gold if you're Exalted with the Sons of Hodir. Only minus is that you don't get the vendors and that it's white instead of brown.
( I prefer white myself =P )
I always feel bad whenever I use this mount, knowing that I just stranded two NPCs.
Imagine a Gnome with it and a Tauren at passenger seat! :)
how can you use the vendors?
Can anyone confirm that this mount still has vendors?
With the expansion coming, is there any change in the price of this mount? I want to double check to make sure the price doesn't drop like duel speccing did right before I dropped 1k to get it done. Thanks in advance.
For those of you who use the repair vendor but not the other one, this is quite a nice macro;
#showtooltip Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
#show Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
/cast Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
/in 3 /run EjectPassengerFromSeat(2)
is this really not affected by crusader aura?
The food vendor has not been updated for Cataclysm despite normal vendors selling the new food. :(
I am not sure if this is intended or not, but currently this mount does
have vendors on it anymore. At least not in Hyjal.
Does this mount change as well when you're in Shadowform as a Priest? Or does it just consider you as a passenger? In the latter case, the mount probably won't get the Shadowy look as any other mount would?
I was wondering if you get to keep the gold from the vendors on this. like say if someone would like to repair there gear then would you get that gold from that repair?
Here's how I did it and I farmed it for someone else with only an honored discount in Dalaran:
As a level 85, you're entitled to enter Tol Bared. You are required to be a skinner and at max level for this to work, however. For my sever, Skullcrusher, people price Savage Leather at around hundred gold per stack. I don't know how it works for Alliance players, but I imagine they'd enter a similar or the same way as the Horde do. Go to the swamp area in Tol Bared above by taking a right outside of the horde base camp and another right and you should look on your map and find it there after that. People doing dailies come through there all the time to kill crocs for Tol Bared commendations. These people often loot what they kill. This means all you have to do is walk up to the body and skin it. There are tons of crocs and their respawn times are very fast. Go around skinning as long as your faction has won and you'll get tons of money selling it on the Auction House. I made around 13K in 2 days. Outcome may vary because I put in a lot of time in to killing them and skinning. You might not and spread it over a week or so. But you make a lot of money.
Sons of Hodir have one that doesnt have vendors for like 10000 cheaper.
but if you are in a lvl 24 guild you'll have a 10% discount which means, the lowest price you can buy the item for is 14k :D
edit: that is like buying the hog from AH and its better then the hog.. in some cases at least, i personally wouldn't want to be too big :p
with no vendors.
Please note that guild level 24 (Bartering) reduces the price by another 10%, bringing the rock-bottom price of this mount to a "mere" 14,000 gold. Such a deal!
Also, while no faction lowers the prices on the on-board vendors, Bartering does apply to these vendors.
i love hace this mount on my druid,, so big! i like to repair anywhere,, but theres a problem.. this vendors only sells food and mana 19000 mana over 30sec from LK expancion and now we are on cataclysm maybe its a good idea they sell food from cata with 96000 over 30sec will be more usable and reliable..
Bought it today for
, exalted with Kirin Tor ofc (very easy to get with badges).
This item was added in Wrath of the Lich King, so the vendors only sell vanilla up to Wrath of the Lich King items.
The vendors does not sell Cataclysm items, so if you think you will get your personal drink vendor, think again.
The best mana drink sold is the
This mount requires level 40 to learn.
Anyone coming back here to purchase this mount, should be aware that per blue post (too lazy to look it up) we should be expecting Bind to Account Mounts in the near future. This being the case, I am actually going to partake in this Gold Dump so all of my toons will have access to it.
A more relevant comment is that if you happened to miss WotLK you should potentially be able to create a new Goblin and get it to Dal for the full 20% Korin Tor discount without having to grind old dungeons with a tabard or just do a JP dump (Be sure to join your guild for Bartering). Just keep in mind that blue posts are intended updates, and not garenteed to happen.
Loremaster's best friend, but it would be nice if Blizz updated vendors on this mount to sell Cataclysm food and drink, since we're in late Cata now.
I generally use this (when able to mount) when I'm trying to clear up bag space, far from a city (like in a dungeon). Other items you could use for the same purpose include:
, if the requirements to buy have been met.
, if you have a
, if you're an engineer / one's present.
, if your guild's high enough lvl.
Hope the list helped, feel free to add items I may have missed. :)
This mount was originally NOT going to be on the list of account-wide mounts in Mists of Pandaria. However, a decision was quite recently made to change this:
We have been discussing this issue the last couple of days and we made the call to make the following mounts account-wide:
•Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
•Grand Expedition Yak
•Grand Ice Mammoth
•Jeweled Onyx Panther (all color variants)
•Cloud Serpents (all color variants)
At this point, the only mounts that are not account-wide are either class specific or rewarded from PVP. We feel like both these types of mounts should still be character specific.
Thanks for your feedback on this issue!
Keep in mind if you play both factions that while the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth is account wide, it will only be for the original faction you brought it for.
For example, my Horde Paladin had brought a TTM back in Wrath, and that was the only TTM I ever brought. Now that 5.0 has hit, all of my Horde characters have access to the mount at level 40, but it does not even appear for any of my Alliance characters. It's the same story for the Mekgineers Chopper/Mechano-Hog.
With patch 5.0, even though most mounts are account wide, the
of this will not show up on your Alliance characters unless you buy it on Alliance.
I was very disappointed to buy the Alliance equivalent on my (Alliance) main, but not have it show up on my mid-level Horde alt.
Does not appear to be cross faction account wide. Got it on horde side, but not on alliance.

Requires level 40 to learn, but can be used at level 20.
is a 3-person mount with NO vendors, that only costs 10,000g from
I am very disappointed that this mount is not usable on my horde characters, I wasted 20 000 gold on my alliance character to use the mount on my horde characters, and it's all for literally nothing, because it's apparantly faction-fixed.
As of 5.0.5b, you no longer have to worry about the mount not transferring from one faction to another. If you have already faction changed, open a ticket and a GM will add the mount to your tab.
You can buy this mount now with kirin Tor rep Exalted and with the guild perks for 14k gold.
By the way, if your characters is a goblin: You dont need exalted rep, you can buy the mount for 14k gold @ Friendly rep =)
also, lvl 20 can use the mount.
Having only purchased the Alliance version of
, I was happy to see in 5.1 that my Horde characters now had their faction version of this mount available. Thanks to Blizzard for making these expensive/rare mounts truly account-wide!
As of 5.1, if you are exalted with Kirin Tor, price is 14,000.

in the game as of 5.2

If I missed any just reply and add to the list!
Helpful macro for those that want:
Mount if you are not mounted
Kick out people if you have passengers (Vendors or Players)
Dismount when you have no passengers
#showtooltip Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
/cast Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
/run if IsMounted() then for i = 1, 2 do EjectPassengerFromSeat(i) end end
/run if CanEjectPassengerFromSeat(1) or CanEjectPassengerFromSeat(2) then else Dismount() end
With this mount, with those 2 vendors you can stay on farming for hours. Like farm for Linen Cloth (Wetlands
On the road just East of Greenwardens Grove 66.67,47.11) or Frostweave Cloth in Icecrown just north-east of The Fleshwerks
Blizzard should really make some of the gold the vendors make from other players go to you. At least a portion of it. I mean they are riding on YOUR mount.
Getting dazed on this mount throws one of the vendors off instead of dismissing the mount.
This applies only for the first daze.
Useful when flying mount is not available.
After some research I've found updated info on where you will find how to eject a passenger/vendor for the mount here:
"Nowadays you should get a graphic on the right-hand side of your
screen where you normally get the indicators when your armour is going
yellow/red, which has dots showing the occupants of the seats.
Right-click a dot and select "eject passenger" to eject them. If you
don't see the graphic, a mod is blocking it.
I don't know how I missed it honestly :) It's just on the right of my screen under the mini-map. Hope this helps someone else.
Blizzard should add Combat Mounts, and I think they should start with this.
Mounts that are "Combat" mounts allow casting of skills and
auto attacks top of them.
They only grant 50% of their movement boost
You can kill the mount, disabling it for 1 min.
Passengers can cast spells too.
In the case of this mount, When you activate it in Combat mode, the 2 vendors should be replaced with 2 Mercenaries that are the equivalent of normal NPCs.
They are your level.
They shoot arrows from crossbows at the enemy, but they can be ordered to dismount and fight Melee.
One of the Mercenaries could be a Mage or something.
To control them, there are 2 Pet bars like a Warlock's pet.
Mounts will be much harder to kill when they are in Combat Mode.
What do you guys think?
You can still not buy Vellum from the vendor on this mount :\
BUY for Justice points. Don't go solo the REP from old questlines/dungeons like I did.
Great for running through rivers without your mount swimming like others would.
Note this thing can bug out quite a fair bit too. Jump on the mount, go to repair sell trash to vendor, and just as the click your rapair bot, the thing just despawns. It is becoming quite annoying and blizzard need to get this thing fixed. It seems it will only despawn in certain situations and is not linked to auto dismount when in battle. Many times for example up a mountain where nothing, no mobs or anything..and i jump on no trouble, but when i click the repair bot or the vendor, it just auto despawns..
As of WoD, the guild perk
is gone. What still applies is the
rep. Quickest way is to grind with
Still works i would imagine though.
Friendly ~ 19k Gold
Honored ~ 18k Gold
Revered ~ 17k Gold
Exalted ~ 16k Gold
You have to learn this mount (so use 16,000 gold at exalted) in order to get the achievement.
Vendor will be moving to the Broken Isles as of Legion opening. You cannot purchase the mount once you have gone through the Dalaran pre-Legion X-pac scenario until then because the vendor disappears.
Price is now fixed (20000G) and you can't apply reputation discounts. Vendor is stil lthere, same place where it used to be (New Dalaran).
Just bought this on my Goblin DK in New Dalaran for 16,0000 gold. I am
with Kirin Tor. I am assuming my goblin racial did the trick.
Cannot pet battle while on a transport, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Burp, fart, collapse!
Just dismounted the alliance version of this on Argus and Hakmud said "Hakmud never get time to relax. Not even on his own world". Nice touch Blizz!
is the "upgraded" BfA version of previous Vendor Mounts and comes equipped with an Auctioneer.
from Wrath of the Lich King - sold by
from Mists of Pandaria - sold by
in Kun-Lai Summit.
does this mount have the transmog vendor
hey all i have a question
after dropping or removing one passenger
how can i add one , kept the repair guy i need to add a transmogliffer ive seen players with mammoth and transmo on it
This mount is sold in Dalaran, don't drop down to Crystalsong Forest like I did.
This mount is still bugged from the dungeon finder groups. If you were flying before the queue and mount this before leaving your group, be prepared to drop out of the sky.
The repair vendor on this mount now sells some shadowlands crafting materials.
As of 9.1.0 looks like blizzard has finally changed the running animation of the mount. Instead of hopping, it now runs like an actual elephant
is it worth it to get this one or is it better to pay more and get the one with transmog?
Anyone know why this mount changes to horde variant in raid with horde, not able to use the repair lol
