GW2: The Griffon Dream

Though it’s been well over a month since I finished the PoF storyline and unlocked the griffon collections in GW2, and over a week since I found enough gold to pay for the mount, I didn’t start the process in earnest until this week.

This is quite the quest. If I wasn’t so bent on getting this mount quickly, it might have even been enjoyable.

But I want this mount. I want it noooow. XD

A huge thanks to Dulfy for her amazing griffon guide. Without it, I’d be completely lost.

The major blockers for me were the runes that you had to collect from Legendary Bounties or big events. I really didn’t know a lot about the process, but I held my breath and dove into the world of GW2 Party Finder.

I joined my first squad ever the other night.

Don’t laugh. I’m shy, okay?

I said, “Don’t laugh!” 😦

So, figuring this out, I was able to beat the Legendary Corrupt Facet…

And the Deadhouse event, and the Djinn…

I’m at the point where I think I can probably solo the rest of the collections, which makes me very happy.

I’m also going to say that some of these jump puzzles to reach the different eggs are a pain in the tail. I just don’t have a lot of patience for jump puzzles anymore — part of the reason why I want the griffon! 😀

Anyhow, I powered through three of the collections over the past few days, and I’m a little proud of my progress. I know once I get my griffon and this is all behind me, I’ll certainly feel accomplished in the end. I’m hoping the end will be in sight this week.
