Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire – Desert Highlands and Elon Riverlands Griffon Guide

The Griffon is the pinnacle of endgame content offered in Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire, the mount that everyone will be striving to acquire once everything else has been accomplished. Mounts are one of the core new additions that the Path of Fire expansion is highlighting the most. If you haven't already checked out our mount guide for the other four ones, you can find that here.

We recommend checking it out, because you have to have the Path of Fire story completely finished and all of the other four mounts before attempting to get the Griffon. You may be wondering what's so great about this mount, and that's because it is the only one in Path of Fire that allows you to fly almost anywhere across the world quickly.

Here is our first section to completing this lengthy endeavor, in case you missed it:
