Backston – Hunter
Getting hunter’s mount is an interesting adventure…
Backston was glad to learn that hunters don’t need any mats or pre-quests to join a great hunt. It’s a scenario straightaway.
So, we hop on a ride and go to the hunting grounds in the Halls of Valor – the very same Valhalla spot you saw in the dungeon. It’s night, and you join an amazing party:
So, you are supposed to leave this camp and go alone to hunt the beasts!
The only problem is: like this.
I don’t envy people with eye issues, because this is really authentic, and you can’t see shit even if your eyes are alright. With no quest directions or map help, you have to track 4 beast spirits in complete darkness and end them.
I tried to flare something or what, but it didn’t work. So you have to trample the grounds until you come across a glowing figure. Hint: search for caves and corners.
Once you did all that, the last beast is coming called Hrflaugrldrfr or something like that :) I absolutely love those old Nordic names :) Here goes:
It’s not creepy really. A hunter doesn’t have a single trouble killing it. When you’re done, you return to the party and drink until you are wasted (it’s in a quest):
When you wake up in your Order Hall, you are presented with a hatchling of Hrmflougrildrfrdir:
And this is it :)
So, the hunter’s mount quest is one of the simplest – basically it’s killing 5 creatures – and very immersing. And I never thought that I would like this mount judging by screenshots… But it’s totally amazing when you ride it. So cuddly :)
