Dapple Gray Palfrey
- Elegant and intelligent, this breed of horse is a favorite among the nobles of Cyrodiil.
- These magical creatures have a special relationship to Y'ffre the nature god, and seem to draw strength from the very bones of the earth beneath their hooves. It's a privilege for a mortal rider to be borne by such an enchanted beast.
The Dawnwood Indrik is a mount datamined in Patch 4.0.2 that has yet to be available. It was briefly seen being ridden by a player in the ESO Summerset Gameplay Trailer. It can be obtained by evolving the Nascent Indrik mount. Its default name is "Sparkle".
Death Mask Sabre Cat
- Most inhabitants of Skyrim hate and loathe necromancy, but those Nords who do stoop to raising the dead tend to go all in, wallowing in death and its symbols. It was no doubt such Nord necromancers who bred the skull-faced Death Mask Sabre Cats as mounts.
The Death Mask Sabre Cat was available in the Crown Store from October 11 to October 15, 2018.
- Bred for size and savagery from the fierce timber wolves of the southern Jerall Mountains, the Doom Wolf has been adopted as the mount of choice by the secretive and deadly Dark Brotherhood.
The Doom Wolf is a black wolf with glowing red eyes previously available in the Crown Store for 2,500 . Its default name is "Nightfur". It makes a distorted sound when howling. A promotional code for the Doom Wolf was included with purchases of The Fall of the Dark Brotherhood story for The Elder Scrolls: Legends, although it only works for PC/Mac.

- Ancient legends from the time of the Dragon Wars tell of Dragon Knights riding into battle mounted on colossal flaming wolves. Were they wolf mounts mystically imbued with Dragonfire? Flame Atronachs conjured in the form of wolves? No one knows.
- The Senche-shaped dro-m'Athra are known to the Twilight Cantors as the sar-m'Athra, but everyone else just calls these eerie and uncanny mounts the Dro-m'Athra Senche.
The Dro-m'Athra Senche is a black senche with glowing blue eyes and streaks on its body. It appears in a flash of blue smoke when summoned, and leaves behind glowing pawprints and smoke as it runs. It was previously available from the Crown Store for 4,000 , and can also be found in Dwarven Crown Crates as a Legendary-level reward. Its default name is "Soul-Eater", and it has unique sound effects.
- Scholar of the Dwemer Guylaine Marilie theorized that bear vamidiums were animunculi mounts reserved only for those Deep Elves of high rank or status. "Imagine a noble in full armor on a Dwarven Bear Mount," he wrote. "What could be more impressive?"
- Dwarven Camels are most often found among the ruins of the desert-dwelling Rourken clan of the Dwemer, who left northeast Tamriel and traveled west to found cities in the remote back-country of Hammerfell.
- Guar vamidiums, or Dwarven Guar Mounts, are most often associated with Dwemer sites in Morrowind—as might be expected, since that's where guar are most in use as pack and riding animals.
- The ancient Deep Elves made animunculi of many kinds, imitating nature with mechanical constructs. The Dwarven word for mount was "vamidium," but their equine automata are more commonly known as Dwarven Horses.
- Since nearly all Dwemer sites are in northeast Tamriel, where the only large feline is the sabre cat, scholars of Dwarven civilization have long wondered why they chose to make animunculi mounts that resemble the senche-tigers of the south. It's a mystery!
- Of all the Dwemer animunculi, the Dwarven Spider is perhaps the most familiar and iconic! This versatile construct comes in several variations, and it should come as no surprise that one of them is a vamidium, or mechanical mount. Clankin'!
The Dwarven Spider Mount was available for a limited time in the Crown Store for 3,000 . It can rise up on its hind legs and turn on a red light. Its default name is "Skitters".
Dwarven War Horse
- This loyal horse has been trained for warfare, and will stick with you through every kind of conflict. As a bonus, it comes outfitted in ancient Dwarven horse armor.
- Dwarven Wolves, or Lupine Vamidiums, are most often seen in proximity to Dwemer ruins of northern and western Skyrim, where wolves are most common in the wild. Its loping gait is said to give the most comfortable ride of any mechanical mount.
