- The resilience of the Mount
Buying A New Horse In Albion Online
You must consider these factors and choose your Mount wisely for its intended purpose, whether it is to travel quickly through zones, carrying loads of equipment and resources, or providing offensive and defensive measures against enemies. A Mount that is fast can help you cover a lot of distance in a comparatively short time. These Mounts can be very useful when ganking other players or escaping from being ganked by other players. The extra speed can possibly save your life and help you to become a great ganker. For those of you who are not familiar with the term ganking, this is what ganking means according to Albion Online Wiki – “Ganking is the act of ambushing other players in an unfair fight and killing them for fame, gear, or your personal enjoyment.”

If you are looking for Mounts with the most carrying capacity, look no further than the list down below. Mounts with high carrying capacities are very helpful in transporting all your resources that you spent a lot of time and to craft or collect. Transporting your stuff can be painfully slow and dangerous. So be careful whenever you carry your items as other players might attack and loot you, which will result in a waste of a lot of your resources, time, and effort. The oxen have reigned supreme when it comes to Mounts with the highest carrying capacity.

- Tier 4 – Adept’s Transport Ox –2,331 kg
- Tier 5 – Expert’s Transport Ox — 2,676 kg

There are different types of Mounts in the game of Albion Online. They are:
- Standard Mounts
- Rare Mounts
- Battle Mounts
- Unique Mounts
The Standard Mounts can have an unlimited amount of offspring which can be bought from the Farming Merchant and have to be grown on pastures. Rare Mounts have a limited amount of offspring which can be grown in kennels. Battle Mounts are Mounts that allow you to be able to use abilities while you are riding it. Unique Mounts are either not craftable or have limited craftability. Also, Unique Mounts do not have offspring. All the breeding mechanics for all the Mounts are the same.
Once a baby has been raised into an adult, it must be crafted with specific materials at the Saddler to give it a saddle and turn it into a Mount. You can find the Saddler in the town or city that you are currently in or you can use one that you have crafted on your island. The latter, most probably may not have been done yet; so go into town and find a Saddler to turn your horse into a Mount. The Saddler crafts most of the Mounts in Albion Online, but the Vanity Merchant and Arena Master Joan also do craft a few Mounts.
