Giddyup is a small addon for World of Warcraft that makes it easy to pick a random mount to use.

Sure, you could assign mounts as favorites and have the game summon a random one of those, but what if you want to use all your mounts? That's where Giddyup comes in!


To install Giddyup, copy the entire folder it's in, into the AddOns folder of World of Warcraft.

  • On Windows, this folder is most likely located at C:\users\public\games\World of Warcraft\Interface\AddOns
  • On macOS, the folder is normally /Applications/World of Warcraft/Interface/AddOns

However, the location may be different if you installed World of Warcraft into another folder than the default.

Make sure there are no spaces in the name of the folder in which you put Giddyup, else World of Warcraft won't be able to load it.

Once Giddyup has been installed, you can put the zip file it came in, into the trash/recycle bin/etc.


You can find the latest version at Giddyup's page on Curseforge.

After downloading a new version of Giddyup, delete the old Giddyup folder in World of Warcraft's AddOns folder, then install the new version as described above.

If you do this while the game is running, type /reload into the chat and press the Return key to get the new version. If you don't, World of Warcraft will keep using the old version until you exit and restart the game, or switch to a different character.


Delete Giddyup's folder from World of Warcraft's AddOns folder if you want to get rid of it completely. Giddyup leaves no other files on your system for you to clean up.

Quick-Start Guide

Giddyup has a fair number of options and possibilities, so to start you off, here are some examples of the more common ways you can use Giddyup. Text in this typeface is what you should type into the chat.

Get a quick overview of how to use this thing: /giddyup

Summon a random mount:

  • Flying: /giddyup fly
  • Flying that can carry passengers: /giddyup airline
  • Ground: /giddyup ground
  • Ground that can carry passengers: /giddyup taxi

Summon a random pet: /giddyup pet

Choose only from your favorites: Add +favorite after any of the above. That is, /giddyup fly +favorite summons a flying mount from those you've marked as favorites in the mount journal. Using -favorite instead summons a mount that isn't a favorite.

Filter: To choose only mounts or pets whose name contains a certain word (or combination of words or letters), add +(word) after the above. That is, to only get a cloud serpent flying mount, do /giddyup fly +(cloud serpent). You can also exclude mounts or pets in the same way with -(word): /giddyup fly -(cloud serpent) will summon a flying mount that isn't a cloud serpent.

Announce your mount or pet to the world: After the commands explained above, you can include a text your character will say (as when using /say) on summoning the mount or pet. If you include %s in this, that will be replaced by the mount's or pet's name. For example: /giddyup fly +favorite You're gonna carry that weight a long time, %s! — if this summons a Jade Cloud Serpent, your character will say, "You're gonna carry that weight a long time, Jade Cloud Serpent!"

Send announcement to a different channel: Start it with the normal channel name or abbreviation, like /p for the party you're in or /me to make it a (text) emote. (Note that /yell and numbered channels like /2 don't work. This is on purpose, to stop you annoying too many people.)

Save yourself some typing:

  • /giddyup can be abbreviated to /gup
  • Any command (the word right after /giddyup, like fly) can be abbreviated to only as many letters as needed to differentiate it from all the others. This is usually the first one or two letters: /gup gr is the same as /gup ground, for example, because although there is another command that starts with g, no others begin with gr.
  • Likewise, any argument (the ones that start with + or ) can be abbreviated the same way. Thus, /gup gr +f summons a ground mount from those in your favorites — gr will do as an abbreviation for ground, and +f for +favorite.
  • Stick long Giddyup commands into macros to activate them with one click.
