INTRODUCING LEAPER AND GLIDER MOUNTS!

New mounts have been added to EverQuest 2!

Leapers – mounts whose powerful jumping abilities will help you cover vast amounts of distance with each vault, are available to players beginning at level 30.

Players interested in obtaining a new mount should seek out Saldas Rubbleground in Butcherblock Mountains. His expedition has found some mysterious fossils in the cliffs, and he could use the help of some strong adventurers to help him in his research.

Level 30 tradeskillers can also help out the expedition by speaking with Ellerith Groundspark, who is helping to keep the workers at the site well-supplied. With the small team he has to work with, he will need the assistance of some experienced crafters to help him with what he needs done.

Gliders – a mount that can ride on the wind, giving players a brief period of flight before falling slowly to the ground, are available to players beginning at level 60.

Players who are looking to have one of these mounts for their own should look for Ferwah Shieldwall in Tenebrous Tangle, at the Vicious Breeding Grounds. She represents a group of researchers who have discovered a new species of creature that they believe to be endangered, and are looking for assistance in their efforts to protect what they have found.

Tradeskillers who would like the help with the efforts should look for Darga Fleetpaw, who is also found in the Vicious Breeding Grounds. Far from home and with few resources, the researchers need help putting together what is necessary for their important work.

Also, be sure to keep an eye on the Marketplace for Leaper and Glider mounts and house items!
