About Yay Mounts

Please comment with any bugs, errors that occur, or with any additional features you'd like to see added.

If a mount is not showing up, try "/ym reload" to force a reload and check if it shows up then. If it still doesn't show up, leave a comment about it.

Provides a one button solution for mounting; allowing you to ground or flying mount, dismount, exit vehicles and shapeshift as a druid or shaman with one button. It includes a GUI for selecting which mounts you want to use. Yay Mounts is most useful for players with a large number of mounts, but only a handful that they actually want to use regularly. Players with very few mounts can still find it useful.

The GUI can be accessed by typing "/ym" or from the Blizzard options window. You can set the keybinding from the /ym GUI options or the Blizzard keybinding menu. You can also make a macro by using "/click YayMountsButton".

  • Druids - Supports Flight Form, Swift Flight Form, Travel Form and Aquatic Form, as well as normal mounts. When trying to use Flight form in the water, you may have to jump and spam the keybind to get it. You can use a flying mount while not moving at the water's surface, but Flight Form is sometimes buggy while treading water.
  • Shaman - Supports instant Ghost Wolf while moving, or cast time Ghost Wolf while indoors.
  • Priests or Mages - Supports casting Levitate or Slow Fall when you are falling, or when you are moving and in combat. Pressing the keybind a 2nd time will cancel Slow Fall or Levitate, but will also trigger a GCD. WARNING: Mashing the keybind to cast Levitate/Slowfall will also probably instantly cancel it! This is an optional feature that defaults to on, but may be turned off in the options.
  • Monks - Supports using Roll when in combat, moving or indoors.
  • Rogues - Supports using Sprint when in combat, moving or indoors.
  • Special Mounts - Supports Flying Broom, Oculus mounts, Northrend Loaned mounts, Abyssal Seahorse, Subdued Seahorse, Sea Turtle.
  • Swimming - YayMounts will use a ground mount while underwater, or a flying mount if you are at the surface.

Localization - Nespirah and L'Ghorek (in Vashj'ir) are not localized for anything except English and zhCN. Option text is not localized for anything except English.

-Fixed characters without Cloud Serpent Riding attempting to use Cloud Serpents
-Mounts that require skills/talents/reputation that the player lacks are visible, but disabled, in the listing
-Stripped out all the hunter aspect swapping; it's too buggy and difficult to maintain
-Fixed druid in-combat shifting; now will prioritize cat form while indoors instead of cheetah
-Guild Herald and Guild Page can no longer be summoned ever by the add-on
-Added a keybind for Passenger Mounts; please comment if it doesn't work or if a mount is missing

 - Added the Sky Golem which apparently went missing!
 - Feldrake is back in but is still labelled under Flying. No big deal! :) Hooray.
 - Swimming is still not functioning correctly, and I am attempting to figure this out.

 - Removed the Hunter option to swap Aspects during combat due to Blizzard's dislike of the dynamic re-assignment of buttons in conjunction with entering/leaving combat. I felt it was best to remove this functionality because of the overwhelming report of bugs with it, and there was simply nothing I could do to fix it in the current model of YayMounts.

 - Changed Feldrake from Scaling to Flying. Blame Blizzard. :(

Added the following mounts:
 - Reins of the Ashhide Mushan Beast

 - Reins of the Vicious Skeletal Warhorse
 - Lucky Riding Turtle
 - Stormcrow

Also added the following mounts in anticipation of their release:

 - Fixed the Grand Gryphon, Grand Armored Gryphon, Grand Wyvern, and Grand Armored Wyvern so they now appear under the flying tab rather than the scaling.

- Fixed an error and the Grand Gryphon should now be useable. You'll find it under the Scaling mounts options.

- Faldoncrow has stepped down as the add on developer and has handed the reins over to askander_kt.

    Ghastly Charger's Skull
    Reins of the Armored Skyscreamer
    Spawn of Horridon
    Reins of the Bone-White Primal Raptor

V1.0.2 - Beta release

    Had the same issue myself. At first it was only happening on my laptop, which made me think maybe the key I had it bound to was starting to go out. Then following a SSD failure (avoid OCZ Tech SSDs, bugger lasted a week!), I opted to copy my lappy's add-on folder over instead of downloading. The problem came along with it.

    Something interesting to note is that it does not seem to affect abilities, such as slow fall or levitate...only mounts. The fix I've discovered as of writing this comment is simply to reinstall the add-on, having realized that I did not do simply that beforehand.

    This seemingly created an entirely new issue, tallying my 63 ground mounts and showing 19 of them, 12 flying mounts and showing four. Scaling mounts showed four out of five available. Attempting to "Check All" or "Clear All" for ground or flying returned a LUA error which I regrettably did not copy down before bouncing out for a second re-install.

    TL;DR = Reinstalled add-on twice. Works perfectly fine now! ^.^;

    Edit: The problem returned within hours with what seems to  be a bloody vengeance. Is anyone aware of a more permanent solution/

    I love this addon. Thanks for keeping it up to date.

    Feature Request: Is there any way to add an option to use specific mounts when grouped, such as Obsidian Nightwing, Sandstone Drake, X-53 Touring Rocket, Grand Ice Mammoth and possibly Traveler's Tundra Mammoth as an option?

  • #232
    roll, zen flight

    I'm also unable to disable the monk roll feature. I roll not matter what, if i'm in combat or moving. I would also really like to see support for the monk glyph, zen flight.

    Thanks for a great addon.

  • #231

    Druid Flight Form is also bugged. Could not find an option to make my mount button also force me out of flight form as it used to back in august of 2011 when I used YM. Whenever I press my mount/dismount button I do not shift out. I checked all options and nothing seemed to pertain to what I wanted it to do. When mining it is more efficient if I can middle mouse button to remove swift flight form as well as use it to take off. Please fix this and monks.

  • #230

    Monk Roll - I can't stop from having Monk roll bound to my mount button. It's really frustrating because I don't want this feature at all.

    I attempted to reinstall the addon. I attempted to set all Monk roll or MR features to false where applicable. I attempted to remove anything relating to monk roll entirely, which only resulted in my mount button not working. I even tried to fix it through the check box. Nothing. Nada at all.

    Can you fix this please? It's really frustrating. I really don't want this feature at all.

  • #229

    Currently, the Azure Riding Crane is under Flying Mounts and is being summoned when you try to summon other flying mounts.

  • #227

    Shows the number of pets I have, but the pet tab is completely blank and shows zero pets using the latest version from

  • #241

    Having the same issue.  It was working on some characters and then stopped.  Still works on my seldomly played characters.

  • #226

    Is it possilbe to add a "use broom" function if one is in my bag?

    I would love to use my mount/dismount button for mounting the temporary magic / flying broom of Hallow's End instead of my other standard mounts.

    Thanks so much.

    Thanks! Love you Kiss

    I also can not get the Red Flying Cloud to show up in the interface even after using /ym reload and restarting game client. It says in chat that it has been found after /ym reload but does not show in /ym UI.


    Great Mod

    If you would like, you can add the Red Flying Cloud Manually by going into the YayMounts Addons folder, in the Interface | Addons sub folder, edit the YayMountsData file in Notepad, and go to line 390, go to the end of the line and hit enter., then TAB twice. From there, add:


    [130092] = "fly", --Red Flying Cloud


    It will look like:

            [129918] = "fly", --Thundering August Cloud Serpent
            [124408] = "fly", --Thundering Jade Cloud Serpent
            [123182] = "ground", --White Riding Yak        
            [130092] = "fly", --Red Flying Cloud

  • #222

    riding goats and red flying cloud are not working in the  slection screen they do not show up. i get a text in chat saying they are new mounts but nothing shows up for me to slect them.

  • #221

    First of all - fantastic mod, thank you! Does virtually everything I could ask for. :)

    With that said, a couple of suggestions I hope you might consider:

    Additional class-specific support (if moving while pressing hotkey):

    • Death Knights - Path of Frost
    • Mages - a tickbox for Blink, as another option alongside Slow Fall.
    • Monks - Roll.
    • Rogues - Sprint
    • Shaman - Water Walking tickbox alongside Ghost Wolf 
    • Warriors - Heroic Leap perhaps?
    I would dearly love to be able to hit my mount button (currently 'G') with any character, while running along, and get a class-specific speed boost. What do you reckon? :)
