GW2. A complete guide on how to unlock the Warclaw Mount for World vs World.
The Warclaw mount can be obtained through World vs World, and it’s actually the only mount that you can use in this game mode. You can also use it on any other PvE area as well.
You are required to own Path of Fire expansion. At least 1 World Ability Point must be spent on the Warclaw Mastery section to unlock the collection which rewards the mount.
Warclaw Companion is the collection you unlock and requires you to do a bunch of World vs World tasks in order to complete it. All the objectives need to be completed in default WvW maps, it does not include Edge of the Mists.
- Warclaw Emblem: Acquire a warclaw emblem by spending one World Ability Point in the Warclaw Mastery section of the WvW menu.
- Warclaw Gorget: Capture a keep.
- Warclaw Horn Spikes: Capture a camp
- Warclaw Saddle: Capture a tower.
- Warclaw Helmet: Unlock the warclaw helmet by completing the Warclaw Reward Track.
- Warclaw Body Armor: Unlock the warclaw body armor by purchasing it with 50 WvW Skirmish Claim Tickets from the Warclaw Tender.
- Warclaw Leg Armor: Use 250 Badges of Honor to purchase warclaw leg armor at the Warclaw Tender.
- Warclaw Tail Armor: Unlock the warclaw tail armor by looting it from guards.
All the items you need to get are pretty easy if you already play WvW regularly, but for players who are new here are some tips and information about it.
Here you can see all 3 maps of WvW with each different type of objective that you need to capture (Keep, Tower, Camp).
Completing the reward track will take some time. You need to maintain your participation while you are in WvW by just simply being active and taking objectives, defending, or fighting. You can also boost reward tracks by using Potions of WvW Rewards, which you can earn every day from the daily achievements. On average, it takes 8 hours to complete the Warclaw Reward Track without Potion of WvW Rewards or any bonuses. Some guilds will have access to WvW Reward track bonuses available at the tavern in their guild hall. Boosters can also be used to speed up the progress.
The other items are bought from the Warclaw Tender which you can find on any map at spawn location, and you will need WvW specific currency.
WvW Skirmish Claim Tickets are the currency related to the “pips” that you earn while you maintain your participation, you will need 50 of these.
Badges of Honor are the other WvW specific currency, you will need 250 of these and you can earn these by many different sources, as random drops from enemies, enemy NPCs, Skirmish Chests, and even from the WvW Jumping Puzzle chests.
Once you complete the collection, you will earn the Warclaw Certificate of Ownership, and with it, you can finally unlock the mount on the Warclaw Tender after spend 8 Gold.
Once you have the Warclaw, you can spend more of your World Abilitiy Points (WAP) to unlock more skills and mechanics. To max out the Warclaw Mastery you will need a total of 166 points. You earn these points each time you rank up by earning World Experience.
