Mount Skins are Cosmetic Items that change the look of the mount that a Champion uses during matches when they leave their spawn room at the start of a round or after respawning from death. Players can also choose what mount they'll use in a match at the champion selection screen. The normal movement speed of a mount is 50 Units/s, this speed can be increased with Master Riding. A mount is the fastest way to travel in Paladins, therefore zoning the objective is very important.
List of Mount Skins
- In early versions of Paladins, players used to be able to mount and dismount anywhere on the map with a short cooldown, but this feature was eventually removed.
- Several mounts from Realm Royale eventually made their way into Paladins, this includes the Sacred Wolf, Fiery Feline (Molten Prowler), 'Merican Mustang, Sparkling Stallion, Norgard the Dragon (Winged Drake, also had its color changed), Sanguine Warbeast (Shadow-Stalker, also had its color changed), Raptor (Dino Dash), and Apex Predator (Feathered Fiend). The Golden Gryphon may also be based on the Royal Griffin.
- This also holds true in reverse, with some mounts from Paladins being featured in Realm Royale, this includes the default mount, Onyx Stallion, Scarlet Charger, Sapphire Charger (Cobalt Charger), Candy Unicorn, Obsidian Warhorse, Primal Prowler, and Mecha Prowler (one version with red lights changed to purple, as well as a gold version known as SHIN3YTR0N).
- The Primal Prowler was once ridden by Ancestral Elves in the times before the original Paladins. It is unknown if this is canon to the lore, or only canon relative to the mount itself.
- The Sapphire Charger appears in the lore cinematic "A Realm Divided", making it the only mount to appear in an official cinematic.
- The Scarlet Charger meanwhile, appears in Vivian's card One Step Ahead
- The 'Merican Mustang appears in Freegle Drogoz's splash art, while the Legionnaire Warhorse appears in Legionnaire Viktor's splash art, and finally, the Primal Prowler appears in Twitch Prime King Bomb King's splash art.
- The Sparkling Stallion mount was initially listed as 'Limited', before being changed to 'Exclusive' in the Shadows update.
- Concept art for the Sky Whale mount shows a slightly different original design, notably featuring the mount wearing a crown.
