The 7 best new mounts and pets

With each new one Elder Scrolls Online Chapter includes a number of new collectible mounts and pets, usually designed to reflect the setting and theme of the expansion. That High Island In Chapter, players can ride alongside many oceanic creatures and other animals or experience adventures that call the golden, rolling hills of High Isle their home.

Some of them new Elder Scrolls Online Mounts and pets are tied to achievements, like the Stormsurge Howler, while others can be earned by completing specific objectives in the world, like the Coral Haj Mota. The Order’s new Crown Crate, the Dark Chivalry Crate, also offers players a few new mounts and pets as rare drops.


Pet: Hermit Crab

The Hermit Crab can of course be found all over High Isle, and while players around the world cannot find or earn one, one can be purchased in the Crown Store or with Crown Gems. These tiny fellows are easy to miss when roaming the High Isle coast as they blend in surprisingly well with their surroundings.

The Hermit Crab can be purchased from the in-game Crown Store for 2000 Crowns or through the Crate Gem Shop for 40 Crown Gems.

Mount: Leadfrost Moose

The Palefrost Moose is a majestic mount that will draw the attention of players without one. It glows eerily white and emits a faint particle effect, almost as if riding through its own personal cloud of frosty mist.

The Palefrost Elk was included in the pre-purchase edition of the Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle chapter and can only be acquired by purchasing this special edition of the game. It’s worth noting that there is a non-battle pet version of the Palefrost Elk in the Palefrost Elk Fawn, which is also earned for pre-purchasing the chapter.

Pet: Coral Haj Mota

Various Haj Mota can be found throughout Tamriel, but they are particularly numerous on the High Isle and Amenos. The noncombat pet, Coral Haj Mota, is a smaller but much more elegant and elaborately crafted version of one of these foes.

This non-combat pet is earned for collecting items throughout High Island The Chapter’s two new public dungeons. In Ghost Haven Bay, players must collect 25 Coral Haj Mota Lures. In the Spire of the Crimson Coin, players must collect 25 Coral Haj Mota Decoys.

Mount: Stormsurge Howler

The Stormsurge Howler is an elemental mount that looks somewhat like a cross between the Amenos Ornaug mount that is included High Island Chapter Collector’s Edition and a Storm Atronach. It’s alive, glowing with a crackling lightning effect and signaling to other players that you’re a true ESO pro thanks to its incredibly difficult requirements.

In order to earn the Stormsurge Howler, players must earn every single achievement in the Dreadsail Reef Trial it contains High Island. This isn’t just limited to the normal mode achievements either, as players must complete it in Veteran Hardmode and earn those achievements as well.

Pet: The cat in Gonfalon Bay

There is a cat in Gonfalon Bay that you can interact with by approaching it to trigger a special cutscene. The camera pans around to see the player beckoning the cat to jump on it and be petted – after a few seconds the cat will be put back. This cat, named Warmseeker, is located just outside the entrance to Gonfalon Bay’s Artisan building.

While this isn’t technically a non-combat pet, it’s worth noting as a unique encounter Elder Scrolls Online which many players probably missed. What it means for the game nobody knows, but some have theorized that it could be a test for expanded character animations in ESO’s future chapters.

Mount: Glowing Meridian charger

The Luminous Meridian Charger is truly a spectacle to behold. It takes the form of a spectral steed with golden elven armor just barely containing its ferocious, energy-like form. It’s bright, easy to see and makes a statement in every area you drive it.

However, the Luminous Meridian Charger doesn’t come cheap. In fact, it’s only available through the Crown Gem Store for 2500 Gems or Sigils of Endeavor, or as a rare drop from Dark Chivalry Crown Crates. Prepare to spend a lot of time farming resources to purchase this mount unless you’re lucky and want to try opening some Crown Crates instead.

Pet: Heartland Butcher Dog

The Heartland Butcher’s Dog is next in the long list of dogs to hit the road Elder Scrolls Online. Looking somewhere between a Rottweiler and a Boxer, this dog is said to have earned its name after initially being used as a guard dog before its owners realized they weren’t doing much guarding and were much more concerned with foraging.

The Heartland Butcher’s Dog, like the Luminous Meridian Charger, comes in the High Island Chapter Dark Chivalry Crates, albeit with a much higher drop rate. It can also be bought directly for a paltry 40 Crown Gems or 2000 Seals of Effort.

The Elder Scrolls Online: High Isle is available for PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Stadia and Xbox One and Series X|S
