Mounts are a new feature in Guild Wars 2, appearing for the first time in the Path of Fire expansion. They’re not only used to traverse the land more quickly, but also to help with solving puzzles. Each of the four mounts – Springer, Jackal, Skimmer, Raptor – has a unique ability that helps you reach places that would otherwise be inacessible to you. You can upgrade their abilities by using mastery points, but first you need to obtain them. We’ve made this guide to show you how to unlock GW2 mounts – raptor, springer, jackal, skimmer.
This page is a work in progress. We’ll update it with more info as we go deeper and find out more about the mounts.
This is the first mount you’ll get. It’s a velociraptor that can jump across large gaps. You’ll unlock it after the prologue, so there’s no chance of missing it. All of your early Path of Fire mastery points will be invested in this one, both because you don’t have anyone else to spend them on, and because his abilities will allow you to unlock other mounts.
In order to get the springer, you’ll first need to unlock the Canyon Jumping skill. It will allow you to jump across great distances. After you’ve learned this skill, go to the Desert Highlands map. Travel to the northeast, to the west of the Auburn Hills area. You’ll find a great canyon – if you jump across it, it’ll lead you further west, to the springer village. Once you’re there, do what the breeder asks you to, in order to complete the golden heart quest. After that, you’ll be able to buy a springer mount for 1 gold and 50 trade contracts.
To get the skimmer, you’ll need to travel to the Elon Riverlands and earn the golden heart in the Skimmer Ranch task region.
The jackal can be obtained in the Desolation area, and you’ll need to finish the Jackal Sand Run in order to unlock it. It’s the fourth mount you can unlock in GW2 latest expansion Path of Fire. Jackal is a sand golem in the shape of a wild dog. More information about this mount you can find in our detailed guide GW2 Jackal Mount – How to Obtain in Path of Fire
