Fang Lair Courser
- In Fang Lair, not even ancient warriors' steeds are safe from reanimation by necromancers! Though to be fair, if you're looking for "grimly impressive," this is the mount for you.
The Fang Lair Courser is a reanimated skeletal horse mount. It is available from the Crown Store individually for 3,000 , or as part of the Dragon Bones Collector's Bundle for 4,000 . Its default name is "Deadmane".
Flame Atronach Bear
- When the Empress Hestra led her legions in harrying the Vampire King Styriche and his Gray Host into western Hammerfell, it's said she did so while riding a great Flame Atronach Bear Mount named Fiery Ursula.
Flame Atronach Camel
- When Peregrine Direnni passed her Master Conjurer test by summoning the first-ever Flame Atronach Camel, her mentor Corvus gave her high marks but was heard to comment, "Now you're just showing off."
Flame Atronach Guar
- Flame Atronachs are summoned from the Oblivion plane of Infernace, a realm so hot that molten rock flows across its surface, and its Daedra are creatures of living flame. Summoned to Tamriel, such atronachs can be given almost any shape, even a Guar!
Flame Atronach Horse
- It was the master summoners of the Direnni who first discovered that a conjurer could impose any desired shape on a Flame Atronach - even that of a horse. Direnni mages mounted on flaming horses first appeared at the Battle of Glenumbria Moors.
Flame Atronach Senche
- For centuries the conjurers' standard spell for summoning Flame Atronachs has been Koron's Peremptory Summons, which is easily modified to change both the duration of the summoned atronach's binding and its form - for example, into that of a Senche-Tiger.
Flame Atronach Wolf
- "An oversized Flame Atronach Wolf makes for an impressive mount," wrote arch-conjurer Corvus Direnni, "but it's inconvenient to house such a steed in flammable stables. When I'm not riding mine, I temporarily lodge it in a pocket realm Adjacent Place."
Frost Draugr Senche
- What were Senche-Tiger Mounts doing in ancient Skyrim, and why were their half-frozen bodies mummified beside the Draugr in certain dark Nord catacombs? And why are they rising now, imbued with animating frost magic? The answers are as yet unknown.
The Frost Draugr Senche is an icy skeletal senche available in the Reaper's Harvest Crown Crates as a hidden Apex-level reward. Its default name is "Frostcat Blue".
- With its icy gaze and steaming breath, the frigid Frost Mare seems carved from the very glaciers of Skyrim.
The Frost Mare is a horse mount made of solid ice, previously available from the Crown Store for 3,000 . It is also available in the Storm Atronach Crown Crates as a Legendary-level reward. Its default name is "Snowhoof", although it originally had no default name. The Frost Mare has unique icy sound effects.
- The Bear was also one of the ancient Atmoran animal tokens, associated later with the Nord god Tsun, so the Frostbane Bear has historically been one of the most prestigious mounts a tradition-loving Nord could ride.
- Perhaps the Atmoran totems and dread-knots sported by the Frostbane Camel actually do help protect it from the bitter cold of Skyrim. Or maybe camels are just too ornery to care.
- Since the Guar is native to warmer climates, the existence of the Frostbane Guar in Skyrim, theoretically protected from the cold by its dangling talismans, may be the strongest argument of those who say the Frostbane wards actually work.
- The ancient Nords who came to Skyrim with Ysgramor worshiped animal totems, and adorned their mounts with symbolic hair-knots and hide strips meant to protect their livestock from the frigid climate. These "Frostbane" talismans are still in use today!
Frostbane Sabre Cat
- Sabre Cats, of course, are inured to the harsh, wintry conditions of Skyrim, and scarcely need warding from the cold; kitting them out as Frostbane mounts is therefore more a question of tradition than of protection.
- The Sacred Wolf was one of the most revered Atmoran animal totems, associated by later Nords with the goddess Mara. The great Frostbane Wolf is therefore one of the most iconic mounts of the ancient Nords.
