Tier 5 Pet Questline

The questline for obtaining a Tier 5 pet will require you to defeat an Awakened Ahib Griffion.

You will be given Griffon’s Meal, which is like a summoning scroll.

Ahib Griffon will call the surrounding elephants to his aid. It’s very easy to accidentally run into them. Be prepared for using your Super Armor skills, as Ahib likes to stun you.

If you are having trouble defeating Ahib, try to draw him to a clear area.

 

Quest Name: [Pet] Who’ll Take The Lead?
Quest Objective: Go to where Obi Bellen tells you, use the feed to summon the Ahib Griffon, then defeat it.
