New World: How to Get Lion Mount

New World: Lion Mount

To unlock Lion Mount in New World, you must complete the Mount quest until you reach an NPC named Valencia Iznov. This can be quite challenging and time-consuming as you will need to complete numerous races, but once you do, your final location should be near the lake in Great Cleave. When you follow the quest and find yourself in the correct area, you will need to do the following steps:

  • In general, getting Lion Mount is very similar to getting Wolf. You will also need to complete various races, however, once you follow the quest and then accept and win the first set of 4 races from Valencia Iznov, things will get a bit more challenging.
  • You will then have to complete 5 races from Satiah Ramotep, and they will be much more difficult than the ones you have completed before. For example, one of them will run from Brimstone Sands to Reekwater, and you will have only 20 minutes to complete it. So, in case you face some difficulties with these races, we recommend you to level up your Riding skill.
  • After you complete and score these 5 races, Satiah will direct you to a lion NPC named Zinnumun. He will give you a quest in which you will need to free another lion that is locked in a cage. To do so, you'll need to follow the quest markers to an area where you'll need to go up a mountain. When you will be approaching your destination, you will need to cross a bridge, and you will see the cage you were looking for. Interact with it to free the lion, and then return to Zinnumun. When you check out on the quest, you'll be rewarded with lots of Riding XP and the highly desired Lion Mount.
