What is the fastest mount I can get with Station Cash or by in game atm for kiting mobs?
Fast is the fastest. Some mounts like Topiary Lions have 2 versions: default Run2 and Fast which is based on a character flag triggered by having a mount that is always Fast. If the name of the spell doesn't give away which mount it is, you can Click on the spell name.
Bard drum is fastest mount.
If bards could ride their drums, they would never leave the privacy of housing.
Bard with Drum will always be fastest, and I think the Seru / Emp mounts from SOL are still the fastest?
I was under the impression that all current marketplace mounts were at the fastest level, along with seru, black drogmor drum (casino), and pally/sk AA. I thought they were at all run speed cap and then bards get an AA that extends our runspeed cap by a small amount and that was the only real advantage we had as far as top speed. Selo's is much better due to mobility.

I think the market place is one step below (or more), because i have the shadow wurm mount from the marketplace and it is not as fast as a seru mount.
Effect: Shadow Wurm
1: Summon Horse: SumMWMm0Run2
9: Increase Endurance Pool by 250
10: Increase Mana Pool by 250
11: Increase Max Hitpoints by 300
12: Unknown #416 (100/100/0)
Effect: Summon Horse
1: Summon Horse: SumHorseBlFast
Some of the legends of norrath loot cards are seru mount speed.
I think some of the marketplace mounts scale to speed of fastest mount you own.
How does one get that to work ? I have a emerald sokokar (fast 1) in my house and I only get the wurms speed, do you have to keep both in inventory ?
Pretty sure it's use the Fast mount to flag the character. If that no longer works blame me and the other people who abused that on FV to make Topiary Lions fast by trade-click-trade.
>_< Can an overly busy developer respond ? ha!
The following is a rundown of mount speeds... There are 5.
Examples of Fast (ie Fastest)
SK or Pali holy or unholy steed
Black Ornate Chain Bridle (aka Seru mount)
Most LON (not all Lon Mounts).
Whirligig Flyer Control Device - DSH Anniversary Task
Class V Collapsible Roboboar - Claim plus essence of speed drop
Bridle of the flying Imperial Sokoka - Field of Scale Raid
Queen's Prime Minion Saddle - Cliknar Queen Raid
Prime Cliknar Mount Saddle - Reward for many many UF tasks
The above mounts are ALL the same speed (yes include Pali SK as one of them)
Examples of Run2
Black chain Bridle -Aka 100 K Baz horse (4 colors to choose)
Class IV Collapsible Roboboar
Most Station Cash mounts for marketplace
A Few LON mounts - eg). Firescale Wrulon was Run2. All other Wrulon are Fast
Example of Run1
Class III Collapsible Roboboar
I won't bother running down anymore slow ones because most are not interested in obtaining the slowest horse in the game.
Have fun riding across the lands of EQ
Yeah I found that information too, just ran some tests... Loaded up Emerald Sokokar Mount, cast the spell ran to zone line. Loaded my Shadow Wurm mount, cast the spell and ran and the Wurm Mount is not as fast as my Sokokar mount.
Years ago I had a Seru mount on my box, and it seemed a tiny bit slower than my SK AA mount. Don't know if it REALLY is or not, but the SK mount was slightly faster when I would change who was leading with Auto Follow.
I have the white striped tiger mount from attending 2010 fanfaire, it is Very fast, no extra stats just Fas,
think the name is like jungle king some thin of feerrott? ill have to look not dure how fast he is but no one on a mount flies past me
Bridle of the Alabaster Jungle - Run2 by default and Fast with a 5 flag
thanks beat me to looking it up
As previously stated, any mount who's mount name includes the word "fast" is the fastest speed. Run 2, Run 1, Slow 2, and Slow 1 from fastest to slowest are the other speeds. This is a list of every mount currently in game with max mount speed. (Ignore anything that doesn't say "Summon Horse")
