Skimmer is the third mount you can get in Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire. It’s a giant creature that looks like a manta ray, except it can levitate. Its main selling point is that it can hover above quicksand and the dangerous waters of the southern areas, letting you cross them unharmed. Getting it will help you solve a whole new bunch of puzzles and collect mastery points that were previously inaccessible. In this guide, we’re going to show you where to find GW2 skimmer mount in Path of Fire.
How to unlock skimmer mount?The skimmer is located in the Elon Riverlands. In order to get it, you’ll need a raptor with Canyon Jump unlocked. Once you reach the area, head south to the Skimmer Ranch. It’s on the coast, west of Vulture Drifts. You’ll need to jump over some stones to get to it. Once you’re there, talk to Skimmer Trainer Ardra – she’ll ask you to deliver apples to famished villagers using one of the strange beasts. When you’ve fed every last hungry mouth at the ranch, go back and talk to her again. She’ll offer to sell you a skimmer for 50 trade contracts and four gold.
