How to find the most stylish mount armor in Diablo 4
Mounts are a new to the Diablo franchise with Diablo 4, letting you gallop around Sanctuary with both speed and style. You can choose from a number of unique mounts that range from ordinary to ethereal, but you can also collect saddles, barding, and tack to adorn your equine buddy.
New mount armor is being added constantly, and you can expand your own collection of looks from many potential sources. Once you’ve collected a new set of armor, you can give your pony a quick glow up by visiting any stable to swap mounts, armor, and trophies.
If you’re having trouble finding the look you want, here’s a list of all of the mount armor we’ve seen in Diablo 4 so far, whether you earn it in-game, through a promotion, or via microtransactions.

Mount armor you can buy with in game currency
There aren’t many armor selections you can purchase in-game, only one you can buy with gold:
- Sturdy Saddle – The gold cost of this saddle scales up with player level, and to can be purchased from any stable master.
The rest of these purchases involve entering the Fields of Hatred, Diablo 4’s PVP areas. To get them, you’ll need to collect and then purify Seeds of Hatred to earn Red Dust (and a lot of it). You can buy them from Unconventional Steed Armor Vendors Fariba or Bakir when you have enough dust:

Mount armor you can buy with microtransactions in Diablo 4
A number of mount armor sets are only available as microtransactions for real money. To get them, you’ll have to buy Platinum with cash, then pick out your armor of choice. Items rotate through the shop regularly, so this is a list of armor we’ve seen so far — but what’s available when you next log in could be different. We’ve also seen one of these — the Scales of the Dead Sea armor — briefly available for free through Amazon Prime Gaming, and we may see additional rewards rotate through promotions like that in the future.
If you want to check what items you have purchased from the Blizzard in-game store, you will need to log into your account on Battle.net and go to Transaction History > Virtual Wallet > Diablo IV — it will give you a list of all the credits of platinum to your account and all the purchases made against that balance.
