Griffon

The Griffon is a hidden mount found in the Crystal Desert in Path of Fire.

After completing the Path of Fire storyline, players can begin their journey to unlocking a Griffon mount.

Players will begin to find strange items (Strange Pellets of Bone and Fur, Strange Droppings, Strange Feather) that direct them to Beastmaster Ghazal in the Garden of Seborhin, in the northeast Domain of Vabbi. He'll point players to his assistant, Seeker Kandake, at Spearmarshal's Lament on Yahnur Plateau in the southeastern part of the Domain of Vabbi.

To get there, players must brave the Brandstorm, Kralkatorrik's fury that calls down lightning on all not under cover. One way to reach Yahnur Plateau is to move south from Market Ruins. An alternative way is from Vehtendi Academy Waypoint and then heading east. Follow the path through the Brandstorm, seeking shelter in magic bubbles projected by Djinns. Using a Skimmer also proves protection against lightning.

Once the river is crossed, players need a Springer with the High Vault mastery to ascend to the plateau. After talking to Kandake, players can continue jumping up with the Springer towards the vista shielded by another Djinn. From there, the Griffon Sanctuary is visible to the east and can be reached without further lightning strikes.

Interacting with the Remains of the Last Spearmarshal in the ruins of the sanctuary unlocks the "Open Skies" collections, which when completed unlocks the mount. Each collection consists of collecting runes from events, finding and collecting griffon eggs scattered across the map, and buying items from Renown Heart Merchants.

There are 10 items in total that must be purchased. Each item costs 25 gold, for a total of 250 gold. Players also obtain the Spearmarshal's Plea item, which can convert 25 Eyes of Kormir into a Sunspear Redemption Wish item, or teleport players back to the sanctuary.
