Subdued Seahorse

"One has not truly lived until they have felt the tidal current rushing through their hair while atop a majestic seahorse," said no one. Ever.

Riding Requirements:

  • This mount is available to all eligible characters on your account.
  • Level 10

Bind on Use:

This mount is not bound to a character until it is used. That means that you can buy, sell, trade, or give it away.


Poseidus is one of only a few special mounts that increase your speed in water by 60% - equivalent to a slow land mount. It vanishes if you leave the water. Its speed is not affected by effects that increase or decrease mount speed.

It is a 100% drop rate from a rare NPC, also named Poseidus, that may spawn in the Abyssal Depths or the Shimmering Expanse.

Introduced in:

Patch 4.1

Travel Mode:
