The new Spooky mount skins are only available in a pack and currently costs 1,600 gems while it is on sale. The default price of the skin pack is 2,000 gems.
As usual, the pack is purchasable by converting in-game gold to gems or by purchasing gems with real currency.
When purchased, the new mount skins tab in the hero panel allows players to select the Halloween skins for each of the unlocked mounts, including the fifth hidden Griffon mount, just like how the mount skins function was expected to work.
Mounts were introduced with the game's second expansion pack Path of Fire. In our review of the expansion pack we gave it an 8 out of 10 score praising its storytelling and its new gameplay mechanics.
