When you first begin playing ArcheAge Unchained, you are awarded your first mount very early on. But as you might have suspected, the first mount isn’t the best one, not even close for that matter. Then again you’re reading this article, so you already know that. So, which are the fastest mounts in ArcheAge Unchained and where do you get them?
Mounts are usually obtained as babies, and it’s your job to raise them and give them all they need until they eventually grow to their adult form. Once they reach full maturity, you can then summon them and ride them.
Each mount has specific skills, levels, equipment slots, and HP, and whenever you summon them, they can be ridden or you can have them follow you around. Keep in mind they will be attacked by hostile NPCs and work it to your advantage. As a support class, I tend to use my mount to lure enemies and attack them from afar.
6. Black Arrow
Starting with the slowest on the list, we have the Black Arrow. This gorgeous horse has a base speed of 10m per second with a peak speed of 15m per second for 10 seconds, with a 30-second cooldown.
It is a really good mount when compared to the ones you get early on in ArcheAge Unchained and it can be purchased for 500 Gilda Stars in the Gilda Star Soul Merchant in either Austera or Marianople.
Much like the Stomwraith Kirin, this mount can only be purchased and not gained, and the cost is 400 Diligence points.
As far as its speed, the Manticore has a base speed of 10m per second with a peak speed of 15m per second for 10 seconds, with a 30-second cooldown.
It’s quite a beauty and it is quite a useful companion for combat, too.
4. Stormwraith Kirin
Number four on this list is the Stormwraith Kirin. It has a base speed of 10m per second, followed by a top speed of 18m per second for 10 seconds, with a 30-second cooldown.
In order to get your hands on one of these, you will need 400 Diligence Coins, as they can only be purchased in the marketplace.
3. Thunder Dash
The Thunder Dash was once the fastest mount in all of ArcheAge Unchained and it’s an evolution from a Stormdarter. This mount has a base speed of 11.4m per second.
One of the best parts about this mount is that you can use armor on them as well as an acceleration stone. Once it reaches level 50, the base speed is 20m per second. The reason it didn’t get first place is that, without those extra items, it falls very short when compared to the others.
And like I mentioned, it is an upgraded mount, so in order to get one, you need to get yourself a Stormdarter and upgrade it by purchasing a Shining Lightning Essence for 30k Honor Points, from the Honor Point Collector.
2. Andelph Drakora
Also with a base speed of 16m per second and a peak speed of 19m per second for 15 seconds, with a 30-second cooldown, the Andelph Drakora makes it to the top 2 fastest mounts in ArcheAge Unchained. The Andelph Drakora is absolutely stunning and the only reason he doesn’t top the Emberwild Charger is that he cannot wear any armor, meaning you won’t get any extras buffs from armor. However, if the contest was about the most visually appealing mount, I’d say the Andelph Drakora definitely wins this race.
So, how do you get one? It’s an achievement mount, which you will get when you complete the Skygarden Collection. Open the achievements menu and check out what exactly you need to do, and soon enough you’ll get this awesome mount.
1. Emberwild Charger
And the winner of the fastest mounts in ArcheAge Unchained is… the Emberwild Charger! That’s right, this horse baddie is on fire. Both literally and figuratively.
The Emberwild Charger is a special mount in ArcheAge Unchained that reaches up to 16m per second as base speed, and has peak speed of 19m per second for 15 seconds total, with a 30 second cooldown.
It is by far the fastest mount in the game, but also comes with a very big downside: there are only four of these mounts per server, and each one cannot be held by the same player for more than one week. Not only that, but there are two special mandatory requirements in order to get this mount: first, you have to be a guild leader, and secondly, your guild has to own a castle.
If you fit the requirements, by all means, do your best to get one. Any other players might as well just give up on trying to get one.
And there you have it, that’s the top 6 list of the current fastest mounts in ArcheAge Unchained. Feel free to let me know which ones are your favorites and if you’ve ever had the chance to ride and Emberwild Charger, as I for sure haven’t.
