In order to progress faster in the open game world of the ARPG Diablo 4, you can ride a horse. However, to get your mount in Diablo 4, you have to complete the quest “Donan’s Favour”. We’ll tell you how to do that.
Here’s the deal: Diablo 4 is the first part of the series that allows you to travel the open world faster with a horse. This is practical if you want to explore everything as quickly as possible. However, the mount dealer in the city is stubborn, and we tell you how you can get your first mount.
Donan’s Favour – How to Get your Mount in Diablo 4
You’ve probably already met the horse trader Oskar standing around in the first capital of Act 1 Kyovashad. If you approach him, you will see that he wants to sell you a horse, but you must complete the quest “Donan’s Favour” first.
You will only get this quest when you have finished Acts 1 to 3 in the main story and start Act 4. You then get the quest “A Master’s Touch” for which you must talk to Donan at the Cathedral of Light in Kyovashad. He gives you a new quest, but you are not initially interested in it. You have to talk to Donan again to get the side quest that unlocks mounts.
Now you have the task of going to the stable master Oskar, where you will learn how to handle a horse. The first mount you get is free, and the other horses cost 20,000 gold.
How to Control your Mount in Diablo 4
Once you have received your mount, you should know how to control it. Not only can you run around faster with your mount, but you can also perform attacks on it. The following applies here:
- Use the right D-Pad (console) or the Y key (PC) to call your horse.
- You can boost your horse 3x with the dodge button to run faster.
- You can perform a jump attack from the horse with the attack button for strong AOE damage.
- Your horse can also abandon you if it is too scared. You can see this by a small bar above the horse’s avatar icon. However, it cannot die.
- You can collect gold and items while riding your horse.
