In this short guide I want to show you how you can make yourself an advanced MOUNT… which also implies how to get the basic mount.
In order to create and ADVANCED MOUNT your are going to need:
a basic mount
135 leather of any type. Note that it needs to be 45 of the same type, but you could have 3 x 45 of 3 different types of leather.
The item drop: Famous Saddle Pig Vol. 1
Obtaining the Basic Mount
First, we’ll get the normal mount, that will give us 135% increased movement speed.
For this, just follow the new player quests. You will get a free rare mount while you level up your character.
The 2nd option is you walk down to a vendor with the saddle icon above his head, you press F and then for 1200 gold you can acquire a pig packsaddle which is your basic version of the mount. It gives you 135% movement speed. Just buy this item, drag it over and pay for it.
Obtaining 3 Chaos Ambers
The three Chaos Ambers have to be farmed by farming materials in any of the major harvesting types (wood, ore, stone, hides, graves) or picking flowers in the PvP-activated zones (Infected or Dregs).
Obtaining 135 Leather
You can either skin animals for the hide, or invest some gold and buy the hides at a leather vendor with the leather symbol above his head. One of those is locate in every temple in the merchant area.
Put it All Together to Get Your Advanced Mount
You have now collected the 135 leather, the 3 chaos ambers, the recipe for the improved mount and of course the normal version of the mount.
Now follow these steps:
Open your crafting menu (Press “J”)
Equip the Swift Mount Saddle Recipe.
You should see on the basic survival list that you have a new recipe saddle swift pack pick and
You just drop the stuff in there: the mount, 3 chaos amber, 135 leather
You hit assemble.
There you go you! You have your improved mount version, which gives you 150% movement speed.
You now put your mount back on your saddle seat and then as usual you run around, then press K and then this swift mount caste arrives.
You put it into your tray, you start casting and you have your mount!
