Elephants

5 posts in this topic

Posted

I have seen pages online saying that the small elephants are obtained by capturing them similar to horses, and pages saying that they are obtained by using ~35 million silver and doing various quests. Which way is in the NA version, or both?

Also, are the small elephants obtained through one of these ways the baby elephants that are used for raising a guild elephant?

Quests. Wait can't even understand your comment... What are you asking for Guild elephant or mini elephant. Here mini elephant quest link:

I'm guessing the second part is the confusing part, and I may be talking about stuff that has nothing to do with the NA version. Rewording: are guild elephants obtained using the mini elephant that you receive from the quest you linked? I'm not familiar with a lot of NA mechanics, do you know where I could find a guide to the NA way of getting guild elephants? Thanks for the link about the quests for the mini elephant.

There are two different kinds of elephants in the game. One is the mini elephant mount that you go through quests in Valencia and spend around 35mil to complete. After that, I believe you can buy additional elephants for around 25mil. 

The other kind is the one you capture. There are baby elephants among the herd of Elephants in Valencia. The babies are used for crafting the Guild War Elephant. I believe you need an inventory with 700 weight, capturing ropes, and peanuts (guild item). From there you place it in your guild house and start the 'crafting' process to grow the baby elephant into a hulking war elephant.

So to reiterate, the personal elephant that you can use is the mini elephant through the questline.

Captured elephant is for the guild mount.

Well we posted simultaneously. There doesn't seem to be a guide that I can find, but you do capture guild elephants in Valencia, but you have to have a guild house to do so. There are a lot of crafting materials that go into making the items to raise the elephant, so it's best to go in prepared.
