Talk to Kuan Priest Omalgar to learn of the The White Griffin.
Defeat the griffin!
Hail to thee in the name of Kuan! Would you like to become immortal and embark on a quest in honor of Kuan? If so, walk towards sundown and defeat the King of the Skies. He is a tremendous griffin and worthy prey for a hunter. Kill him and your name will become immortal!
Head west from the nearby Resurrection Monument (you may want to activate it, just in case of accidents). The boss isn’t far away, and you should be able to see it from a fair distance, even in the dark, as it is a bright white colour with large semi-translucent white wings.
Things to note before going into battle:
- try to have a fire-damage weapon or skills equipped, and try to avoid ice and magic damage weapons or skills
- try to have some defence against ice attacks
- even at level 4 this boss has over 1500 hp and is probably much better at hitting you than you are at hitting it
- if you rely on buffs you are (in a word) screwed - this boss removes your buffs with some of his attacks
- this boss will sometimes freeze you in place for a few seconds
Clear out as many of the Kobolds and Boars as you can, but beware of the boss's long aggro range. If the mobs in the area are still dangerous to you then you might want to try using the aggro range against it and pulling it back towards the Resurrection Monument where it's easier to clear the extra mobs out beforehand.
Beat on the boss (drinking health potions as necessary) until it gives in and dies already, and collect your loot and a nice fat EXP bonus.
- You can boost your EXP reward by drinking a Potion of the Mentor just before the boss dies
- This boss doesn't spawn until you accept the quest, so you can clear out the area beforehand to avoid fighting extra enemies as well as the boss
- This quest (although not the boss) is new since v2.34 (PC)
