Keep in mind that a lot of this was written during the BfA beta testing, so some of the information might change once Battle for Azeroth is live. We will do out best to keep this as updated as possible, but some of the info might be a bit wrong during the first few days after release.
If you have any additional info, or found anything that is wrong or changed, then please let us know in the comment section, and we will do our best to update the guide as soon as possible.
Mythic Dungeon mount drops (3):There are several Mythic-only Dungeon drop mounts in Battle for Azeroth, and all of these require you to do the dungeon on Mythic difficulty to drop. The key level does not matter. All the mounts are tied to a specific boss in the dungeons, but all of them can also drop the the weekly chest called the Challenger's Cache. It does not matter which Mythic you ran when it comes to this chest, and you can get either of the mounts. The drop rate is around 1 %.
Underrot Crawg drops from Unbound Abomination, the endboss of the Underrot.
Tomb Stalker drops from King Dazar, the final boss of King's Rest.
Sharkbait drops from Harlan Sweete, the endboss of Freehold.
Reputation mounts (6 for Horde, 6 for Alliance):These mounts require you to reach a certain reputation level to buy. Just like in Legion, the main way to get rep with these factions is by doing the story quests, then followed by doing World Quests and Emissaries. Once you buy and learn the mount, then any character (within the faction restriction) can use it.

Zone random drop mounts (5):The random drop mounts can drop from a huge pool of mounts, meaning that they can be pretty tricky to farm. Most of them are tied to an entire zone, so either farm in this zone, or hope that you get lucky during a World Quest.

Warfront / rare spawn mounts (6 in total, 4 neutral, 2 faction specific):The Warfront mounts are tied to rare spawns in Arathi Highlands that can only be killed if your faction wins a Warfront. Each rare mob can drop loot once per day, so you can only kill them once daily for a chance for the mounts.

Island Expedition mounts (5):The Island Expeditions have some nice rewards, including 5 unique mounts. All of these (along with many pets, toys and transmogs) can be obtained randomly when you win an Island Expedition, so unless something changes, the best strategy to getting them is to farm as many Island Expeditions as possible and hope for the best.
The following five mounts can be obtained by doing Island Expeditions:
- Twilight Avenger.

- Qinsho's Eternal Hound.
- Craghorn Chasm-Leaper.

See the mount guide for the strategies needed for each boss.

Battle for Azeroth Pre-event mounts (2):There are two Battle for Azeroth Pre-event mounts: the Teldrassil Hippogryph mount for Alliance characters, and the Undercity Plaguebat mount for Horde Characters. These two can only be obtained during the final two weeks of the Pre-event, meaning you have to get them between August 1st and August 14th.
Obtaining them is actually pretty simple, and requires you to complete a faction-specific quest chain that takes you to the northern part of Kalimdor. The quest begins automatically upon logging in to a level 110 character, so just follow it, and you will get the mount at the end of the quest chain.
Other Battle for Azeroth mounts (7):Darkforge Ram: The Darkforge Ram is only useable by Dark Iron Dwarf Paladins, and these get the mount automatically when they create a new Dark Iron Dwarf.

Mighty Caravan Brutosaur: The Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur is an interesting mount, and even has a remote Auction House! With this mount you will no longer need to go to a major city to use the Auction House, but it's not like everyone will be getting this mount. You can purchase it from Tricky Nick in Tiragarde Sound as Alliance, or from Talutu in Zuldazar as Horde. The price is 5,000,000 gold though!
Palehide Direhorn: The Reins of the Palehide Direhorn is sold by Tricky Nick in Tiragarde Sound as Alliance, or from Talutu in Zuldazar as Horde (same the for the The Reins of the Mighty Caravan Brutosaur), for 500,000 gold.
The Hivemind: The Hivemind is likely tied to a secret (much like Lucid Nightmare), but no one has solved the riddle yet, so you either need to wait, or go ahead and try to be the one who figures it out!
Battle for Azeroth PvP mounts (2):Conquerer's Scythemaw: The Conquerer's Scythemaw is obtained by completing the achievement "Conqueror of Azeroth". This is a meta-achievement tied to various objectives that can only be completed with War Mode.
Prestigious Bloodforged Courser: This mount is awarded to players who reach Prestige Level 500. This requires a total of 4,400,000 Honor, so be prepared to play a lot of PvP to get this mount.
Battle for Azeroth profession mounts (2):Great Sea Ray: The Great Sea Ray is an aquatic mount that can be fished up randomly when fishing in any Battle for Azeroth zone. You do not need to fish in a pool to get it, so there is no way to really farm this except for just fishing anywhere.
Mecha-Mogul Mk2: The Mecha-Mogul Mk2 is an engineering mount that can be made with mats from the Battle for Azeroth expansion. See the mount guide for full info on all the mats and how to get them. This mount is also BoE, so you can buy it of the Auction House instead of crafting it yourself if you want to.
BfA Vicious War Mounts (2 Horde + 2 Alliance):The Battle for Azeroth Vicious War Mounts can be purchased for 1 x Vicious Saddle in Stormwind or Orgrimmar. The following new mounts are added in Battle for Azeroth:
