The Spectral Tiger mount in Blizzard's World of Warcraft MMORPG is one of the most coveted items. The item itself is a ghostlike, semitransparent tiger that players can ride if they have 150 Riding skill. The only way to obtain this mount is to obtain a code from a very rare loot card from the World of Warcraft Trading Card Game (TCG).

Show MoreHide


  1. 1

    Obtain a Spectral Tiger card. These are extremely rare (there's approximately one in every 500 booster packs), so if you want to get one without relying on chance you must purchase the card separately from a private seller. Typically you can find them on online auction websites. Spectral Tiger loot cards typically sell for several hundred dollars.

  2. 2

    Scratch off the covering on the card to reveal the loot code. Remember to scratch gently so that you don't scratch off the code underneath the covering.

  3. 3

    Go to the page of the World of Warcraft website that allows you to redeem loot card codes. (See link in Resources.)

  4. 4

    Select your region and realm, enter your loot code in the appropriate fields, enter the security input, and click "Submit."

  5. 5

    Write down the new code you receive. Once you navigate away from this web page, there is no way to retrieve the code.

  6. 6

    Log in to World of Warcraft.

  7. 7

    Travel to Booty Bay and locate Landro Longshot. You can find him on the dock next to the Old Port Authority, at coordinates 28.2, 75.9.

  8. 8

    Talk to Landro Longshot and purchase the Reins of the Swift Spectral Tiger. Remember that you must have the Riding skill at 150 to use the mount. You can also purchase the Reins of the Spectral Tiger, which is a slower version of the mount and usable with Riding skill 75. These mounts cost the same amount of gold as other equivalent, in-game mounts.

  9. 9

    Enter the code you received from the World of Warcraft website when you are prompted. Do not enter the code from the loot card, as it will not work.

  10. 10

    Right-click the item in your inventory. The mount is added to your list of mounts and you can select it for riding in your character's information window.

Tips and warnings

  • When purchasing a Spectral Tiger card, be careful not to purchase the Sandbox Spectral Tiger card, which costs much less. These cards do not unlock a Spectral Tiger, but an item in the game that allows players to sit and bounce on a playground-style pony that looks like the Spectral Tiger mount.
