Most mounts will be found randomly in the wild in their adult stage, untamed, at a random level. Taming a mount will require befriending the mount by feeding it food of its liking or through other means, the higher the level the harder to tame. Some mounts will only be obtainable from breeding specific mounts/mount elements
