Player riding a mount.

Mounts are a form of travel introduced in Aion Ascension. Mobility is key on the battlefield. Thus, Atreia's most skilled scientists have researched a variety of technological breakthroughs to provide us with the latest in battlefield mobility. These mounts and vehicles will allow Daevas to travel faster than ever! All mounts have flight capabilities, and most have the ability to temporarily boost their speed beyond normal measures.

Mounts have the following effects
  • Mounts increase movement and flight speed while you are riding them. The increase depends on the type of mount.
  • Some mounts can be made to Sprint by pressing the <R> key (Ascend). Sprinting is a temporary boost to movement speed, and it consumes flight time.
  • If you use Sprint on a hill before you jump off, you can land further away.

Taking Damage Edit

  • Each time you take damage, there's a chance you'll be dismounted.
  • High-performance mounts such as the Sharptooth Bloodletter or the Pagati Veyron give a better chance to resist being forcibly dismounted.
  • If the player has a DoT, the chance of being dismounted increases each time the DoT damages. This means that there is a good chance of resisting being dismounted on the initial hit, but over time it's much more likely to cause a dismount compared to a single hit.

Altered States Edit

All Altered State skills that affect movement speed also dismount you 100% of the time.

Other Effects Edit

Mount fall damage

Even if you take falling damage, you won't be dismounted unless you are killed.

  • Falling damage will not dismount you.
  • Terrain hazards such as lava have a certain percentage chance to dismount.

Capture Skills Edit

  • A skill that also decreases movement speed will always dismount.
  • If the skill captures the target but does not affect movement speed, there is a certain chance to dismount the target, just as when damaged.

If a capture skill decreases movement speed, it will always dismount the target.

A capture skill that drags the target but does not decrease movement speed has a certain chance to dismount.

Take a Mount for a Test-Drive! Edit

Some of the high-performance mounts can be very hard to come by. Even those that can be bought from NPC vendors can cost a fortune. If you complete one of the following quests, you can use a mount for an hour free!

Mount tooltip

Each mount has a fixed movement speed Buffs, Running Scrolls, Flight Scrolls, and Speed Shoes are not needed to make these mounts really go!

A mount increases your movement and flight speed while you are riding it.

Each mount increases movement and flight speed by different amounts. Rare and expensive mounts give the biggest boosts. Mounts are very useful when for getting to remote places. However, you cannot use skills or items while riding them, so be sure to consider that before deciding where and when to use them.

The performance stats of a mount are all shown in its item tooltip.

When you get on a mount, you will feel the speed boost right away.

How to UseEdit

Mount cube

Click a mount in the cube to use it or drag it to your quickbar for ease of use.

Mounts are stored in your cube as items. Click one, and your character will spend about 1 second summoning the mount, and then get on it.

To get off the mount, open your cube and click the icon again.

You can bind the dismount function to a shortcut key. Note that you cannot use the shortcut key while moving. To dismiss a summoned mount, you must stop before clicking the shortcut key.


Mount sprinting

Blurred edges of the screen when sprinting on a mount.

This screenshot shows a mount Sprinting. Focusing lines appear on the screen as the movement speed increases. To start Sprinting, get on a mount and press the <W> key (Forward) twice in quick succession, or press the <R> key (Ascend/Sprint) once. Sprinting provides a huge temporary boost to movement speed by consuming flight time.

Try Sprinting up a hill and then leaping off for a huge running jump.
