How to Get the Griffon Mount


Must have finished PoF story, and will need 250 gold. Players short on money should check out our guide!

Many of the events required for these collections are group events. Don't be afraid to ask for help in map chat (and tag up if you can), as there will usually be willing players around.

You will benefit greatly from having the High Vault mastery on your springer. While not impossible to complete without it, it will nonetheless be much more difficult. Some suggested routes in this guide will also use sand portals.

Starting out

Once players have finished the PoF story, they will start to find strange items dropping from creatures in the Crystal Desert. The descriptions of these items point you towards Beastmaster Ghazel. Double-clicking the item will open the map and highlight the location he may be found.

Talk to Beastmaster Ghazel, and he will direct you to his apprentice, Seeker Kandake, who may be found at Spearmashal’s Lament.

Talk to Seeker Kandake and she will identify that the item comes from a griffon, and suggest that you look nearby. To the east you will discover the Sunspear Sanctuary and the Remains of the Last Spearmarshal. Talking with the remains will unlock the collection

Note that players who have finished the PoF story can go directly to the Sunspear Sanctury and start the collection, without needing to find the strange items or visit the first two NPCs.

You will be given the : An item that allows you to return to the Sunspear Sanctury. It can also teleport you to Sun’s Refuge (if you have it unlocked), and will allow you to trade up to 75 a day in exchange for unidentified gear and minis.

Sunspear Sanctuary

Tasked with restoring the Sunspear Sanctuary, players must travel across the five maps of the Crystal Desert, buying supplies from heart vendors, completing events, and finding griffon eggs.

The supplies cost 25 gold each, and are bought from heart vendors (requiring completion of those hearts). Each map has two such supplies to purchase. After being obtained, the supplies may be consumed for some trade contracts.

The order these collections are completed in is unimportant.

Sunspear Wisdom

After finishing all the above collections, return to the Sunspear Sanctury and interact with the various locations to place the collected eggs and runes. This will grant you the Divine Passage and begin the next collection. At the Tomb of Primeval Kings you can now interact with the seal at the back of the Tomb, where you entered the mists during the main story. Doing so now will transport you to Kormir's abandoned library.

Within the Sanctum are 10 caches, each of which requires a key to open. These keys are obtained by killing elites within the library, each of which has the Key Hoarder effect along with an Unstable Magic Ability. The elites will eventually respawn so you can ignore any elites that prove to be too difficult.

The cache locations are shown below. Caches located in the upper level are indicated by an arrow.

On Wings and a Prayer

Once all writings have been found, return once more to the Sunspear Sanctuary and interact with the pedestals surrounding the statue of Kormir to place the Writings of the Last Spearmarshal. This grants access to the final instance required to unlock the griffon.

A Mordant Crescent Hierarch must be defeated to protect the Sunspear Sanctuary. At 25% health intervals, the Hierarch will become invulnerable and the nearby griffons will begin to glow. Interact with one of these griffons to mount it and use Swoop Swoop to attack the boss, breaking his shield. When the Hierarch dies, you will unlock your very own griffon!

Griffon Expert & Master

Once you train the Aerial Prowess and Aerial Finesse masteries for the griffon, you will unlock the Griffon Expert and Griffon Master achievements, respectively. Doing so will also grant you access to the following adventures:
