The Springer is a bunny who is able to jump extremely high allowing players to reach places that were previously impossible to get to. The bunny uses endurance to charge his jump, and the more endurance it uses, the higher the jump will be. Moreover, the jump can be improved by upgrading the necessary masteries.
Players can unlock skins that completely change the way the mount looks. These skins cost gems though, which is an in-game currency that can only be purchased with real money, or by reaching certain milestones in your achievement points.
Getting the Springer in Guild Wars 2
There are two ways in which you can get the Springer. The important part is that you have to own one of the two expansions Path of Fire or End of Dragons. However, its masteries can only be unlocked if you own the Path of Fire expansion.
Path of Fire
To get the Springer in Path of Fire, you have to complete the “Help out around Highjump Ranch” Renown Heart, then purchase the Springer from Stablemaster Unja for 50 Trade Contracts and 1 Gold. The heart can be completed by doing the following activities:
- Killing Harpies
- Destroying Harpy eggs
- Collecting carrots
- Fill water Troughs
- Kill Groundhogs using the rented Springer’s Cannonball.
You have to get the Raptor and unlock the Canyon Jumping mastery before you can complete this Renown Heart.
The Heart is located in Desert Highlands, in the Highjump Ranch region. To get there, take the Lommuld Kraal Waypoint [&BGoKAAA=] and head west.
End of Dragons
You can get the Springer from End of Dragons as well, and this one doesn’t require a prerequisite mastery. Simply go to New Kaineng City and talk to Lieutenant Zhao who is located in Grub Lane. She is a Renown Heart NPC who will explain to you that using a Springer is crucial to defeating the Grubs, and by the end of the dialogue, she will give you one if you don’t already own it.
This bunny has one offensive ability and one utility ability. They both work in perfect synergy and can be used consecutively.
|Cannonball||Jump in the air, spinning multiple times and landing causing great damage to nearby enemies.|
|Rocket Jump||Hold the hotkey to charge an extremely high jump.|
This mount’s masteries can only be unlocked if you own the Path of Fire Expansion, and they improve the efficiency of the existing mount’s abilities and give bonus perks to other mounts as well. It costs a total of 14 PoF Mastery points to get all the masteries for the Springer.
|Fortified Descent||2||Greatly decreases the amount of fall damage you take while on a Springer.|
|Forceful Impact||3||Cannonball now knocks down foes.|
|High Vault||4||The mount jumps much higher now.|
|Masterful Descent||5||Fortified Descent is now shared between all mounts.|
That’s a wrap. Come back to this guide in the future to check if there is a new method to obtaining this mount as we will constantly be updating it whenever new changes show up.
