Long-Forgotten Hippogryph – Rare Spawn Mount Guide

The Long-Forgotten Hippogryph is a rare spawn mount added in the Legion expansion. In this guide we'll go over how to get the Long-Forgotten Hippogryph, including a few tips and tricks, spawn information, ephemeral crystals locations, recommended addons, and more!

General Information

Type Zone Spawn Timer Expansion



2-8 Hours


  • The Long-Forgotten Hippogryph is obtained by being the first person to locate and click on 5 Ephemeral Crystals located around Azsuna.
  • Once you click on the first Ephemeral Crystal, you will receive an invisible buff (Crystal Dummy Aura) with a duration of 8 hours.
  • If you die, you will lose the buff and will have to click on all of the Ephemeral Crystals again.
  • The mount will be automatically placed in your bags after you click on the last Ephemeral Crystal.
  • A zone-wide announcement will be posted in chat once a player interacts with fifth crystal and gets the mount: You hear a faint caw in the distance and then silence...

Ephemeral Crystals Spawn Information

The Ephemeral Crystals can spawn in many locations across Azsuna and will remain there until all of the crystals (and the mount) have been found, or until the server's weekly reset. Azsuna Legion Assaults have no impact on the crystals.

All of the locations are easily accessible with a ground mount, however, it is advised to fly while searching for the crystals as it will take a lot less time to go through the map. Other players may be looking for the mount at the same time, so you need to be as fast as you can.

Ephemeral Crystals Locations

To add the Ephemeral Crystals locations to the map, we recommend you install the addons HandyNotes and HandyNotes - Long-Forgotten Hippogryph.

How to search for the crystals

It's a good idea to keep track of the locations of all of the crystals that you've found. In the case that you're more comfortable with using a tool to write the locations down, some possibilities include:

  • Adding the coordinates of the crystals you have found to TomTom.
  • Writing the coordinates down in a program or application such as Notepad.
  • Writing the coordinates in game by whispering yourself.

The reason to keep track of the Ephemeral Crystals' location is in case you end up dying (which makes you lose the Crystal Dummy Aura). A good time to start your search for the crystals is a few hours after the weekly server restarts, considering that they have a spawn window of 2-8 hours. The chances of finding them are much higher because you know that they will have spawned in that time window, as opposed to checking at random intervals during the week when someone might have claimed them just short of an hour before you entered the zone.

Additionally, if you are in the zone when all of the Ephemeral Crystals are found, as we previously mentioned, a zone-wide notice will be visible in chat to alert everyone that the mount has been obtained. The respawn time window starts from that moment, meaning that you can note it and come back at a time that you deem appropriate to search for them.

If you can't find any Ephemeral Crystals, you can ask a friend to come and help you in your search. You can also change your War Mode status to increase your chances to find the crystals, given that War Mode ON and OFF are two separate phases.
