Earning Your Mount

Guild Wars 2 Warclaw Mount Achievement GuideWarclaw Companion
Complete the following tasks to earn the might warclaw mount.

To earn the following achievements and your mount you must first tackle a few goals. There are several unlocks that start you on your journey.

The first is that you will need to be rank 1 in WvW. This will give you access to the Warclaw rewards tack after placing one point in the Warclaw Mastery rank. This track is located at the bottom of the Rank and Abilities panel.

After unlocking the reward track, you then need to activate it. You will find the reward track at the very bottom of the Reward Tracks panel. You will need to complete this track to unlock the Warclaw Armor box.

From here the rest of the goals are fairly simple, but this will take between 6-8 hours depending on your reward track buffs. Don’t forget to use guild hall potions, along with any WvW buffs you gain through boosters.

From here you will need to complete the following goals:

  • Emblem (Apply 1 rank ability in to the Warclaw rank track)
  • Gorget (Capture a Keep)
  • Horn Spikes (Capture a Camp)
