Mounts And How To Get Them [Outdated]
By Matzi
A basic guide on all the mounts in Terraria and how to get them.
Mount Basics
In Terraria there are many items one can get to summon a mount. A mount is a rideable mob that has many benefits varying from mount to mount. In this guide I will show you all the different mounts and how to get them.

The available mounts to date are:
  • Slime Mount
  • Pigron Mount
  • Rudolph
  • Turtle Mount
  • Bee Mount
  • Bunny Mount
Slime Mount
This is personally my favorite as slimes are one of the icons/mascots of Terraria and riding one also went with my "Slime King" theme. Its also a lot of fun :3

How to get it: The item you need is called Slimy Saddle and it is dropped from the King Slime in a 1/30 chance whenever you kill him.

Advantages: The mount lets you float on water and it jumps quite high. Also looks sick.

Disadvantages: Isnt very fast. Cant fly. More of a vanity mount really.

Bunny Mount
Well its a giant white fluffy bunny. Its ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ awsome.

How to get it: The item you need is a Fluffy Carrot, you get this by finishing the 15th angler quest.

Advantages: Runs fast. Jumps high. Adorable as ♥♥♥♥.

Disadvantages: Doesnt fly. Rabbits dont swim, they drown.

Turtle Mount
It was my first mount, its quite decent I rate. I like turtles.

How to get it: The item you need is a Hardy Saddle, you get this in a 1/10 chance by opening a Golden Crate (You get that by fishing)

Advantages: Fast as ♥♥♥♥ underwater. Slow and majestic.

Disadvantages: So slow on land. Turtles dont fly. Head looks like it was rammed into a speeding truck.

Reindeer/Rudoplh Mount
Dashing through Terraria on a flying reindeer. Pretty legit.

How to get it: You need the Reindeer Bells item which is dropped from the Ice Queen during a Frost Moon. Note that it is only droppable from Ice Queen after wave 15.

Advantages: It flys. It runs fast. It makes bell noises.

Disadvantages: Noises may get annoying. Pretty ♥♥♥♥ in water.

Pigron Mount
Pink Rainbow Pig

How to get it: You need a Scaly Truffle which you can get by fishing in a snow biome that is overlapped with a hallowed biome. So basically a pink snowy area.

Advantages: Probably the best mount, runs faster and faster and also flys.

Disadvantages: Doesnt poop bacon.

Bee Mount
56 Queen Bee's later and this ♥♥♥♥♥♥ still hadnt dropped, but I had a fan who gave it to me :D Shout out to Lucy :)

How to get it: You need the Honeyed Goggles which have a 1% chance to drop from the Queen Bee.

Advantages: Flys really fast for a long distance.

Disadvantages: Runs slowly

Extra Info
Just remember that using an item while riding a mount will remove the mount buff and render you mountless 3:
