If you need to get somewhere fast on the Timeless lsle, I can think of two viable and fun options – provided you have the necessary items. One requires the Falling Flame from Cinderfall although it’s a little unreliable like a piece of gnomish engineering. You may just find yourself shooting backwards rather than forwards as I found out quite recently.
I was curious to see how close I could get to Jakur’s spawn spot so when I was ready to leave my spineclaw farming spot, I shot off in what I thought was a good starting point. Yeah… it wasn’t.
Earlier today I was ecstatic to see the Ash-Covered Horn drop from the High Priest of Ordos. It even popped up as group loot which isn’t always the case but summons a very, very fast mushan. Technically it’s not a mount but can be used indefinitely as long as you have it in your bag unlike the Tuft of Yak Fur dropped by the Ironfur Steelhorn.
The horn gives you a Furious Ashhide Mushan buff allowing you to travel at 275% movement speed for 20secs. With only a 1min CD and no charges, you can have quite a bit of fun with it although you can only use it on the Timeless Isle. At least you can steer and unclick the buff to stop but why would you want to?
If you look closely, you’ll notice her hands in a defensive position as she protects her head from impending damage (or saddle). Nothing a turtle helmet can’t fix though, provided you don’t need to see where you’re going.
Here’s where I am right now:
- Ordon Death Chime – Drop from Flintlord Gairan
- Warning Sign – Drop from Jakur of Ordon
- Spineclaw Crab – Drop from Monstrous Spineclaw
It’s just a matter of time, luck and lots of Scuttler’s Shells. Shame they only stack 10 at a time.
