A Horsemasters Notes on Mounts tarot

Mounts tarot card

Mounts are a mode of transportation available to the Inquisitor in Dragon Age: Inquisition.

There are different types of mounts and each type can take a different amount of melee hits before unsaddling you and disappearing, with horses taking one blow, harts taking two, dracolisks three, and nuggalopes four. [1] This is the only distinction among mounts; they otherwise have the same speed, turning radius and other characteristics. Some mounts are available only in the Digital Deluxe edition of the game. Companions don't have mounts and disappear while the Inquisitor is mounted. There is no party banter in this mode. The mounts can be changed next to the smith in Haven and by the stable in Skyhold.

Some mounts can be bought from the mounts merchant next to the stables at Skyhold. You need to first convince Master Dennet to come to Skyhold with you. Certain mounts may be synchronized across playthroughs using the Golden Nug.

Notes Edit

HorseRear WM
  • In promotional materials the Red Hart is incorrectly named "Red Hart Halla". Mike Laidlaw has confirmed that this is an error.[2]
  • Mounts can be used to bring stranded companions up to wherever the lead character is by summoning the mount, mounting and dismounting.
  • Mounts and mounted characters do not take falling damage and thus, the mount can be used to jump off high cliffs and structures.
  • A mage that is equipped with Ring of Doubt and armor, or weaponry that was made with Fade-Touched Craggy Skin (which increases speed while in stealth by 75%) can run indefinitely at speeds significantly faster than a mount. Unlike normal game play, the controlled character moves faster when jumping and/or with their weapon unsheathed. Frequently using the search function while running will keep the character from re-sheathing their weapon.
  • The Rider's Posture and Antivan-Stitched Saddle perks under the Forces section of the Inquisition Perks menu will both significantly increase resistance to being unseated.
  • Search and most other interactions with the world are disabled when mounted.
  • All mounts have the same characteristics in terms of speed and maneuverability, the differences are purely aesthetic.
  • Mounts may be ridden by any party member, not just the Inquisitor, and their commands to the mounts are fully voiced.
