Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire – Crystal Oasis Griffon Mount 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 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 that allows you to fly almost anywhere across the world quickly.

Like we said, before starting this walkthrough you need all four other mounts – Raptor, Springer, Skimmer, and Jackal – preferably all already at Mastery level three, as well as a grand total of 250 gold. If you don’t have the necessary required gold, check out our gold guide for that.

Once you’ve got all of that, you can begin collecting the necessary items for collecting your very own Path of Fire Griffon mount. This is one of the deepest and most complex things to do in Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire. Because of the lengthy process, we will be dividing this up into several sections over the next few days.
