Cymre the Camel-Hoarder
Tonight I had a happy ending to my Mysterious Camel Figurine story. It took a total of 10 or so figurines before I found the right one. However this was over many, many months.
As I quickly scanned the area in an attempt to figure out where this latest location was, I was pleased to find it was pretty easy to spot being a new co-ordinate for me. I decided to kill a couple of mobs immediately surrounding the figurine before I felt comfortable about testing the camel. You know, makes for a better shot when you’re not fighting several things, etc. Mind you, expect to be almost standing on top of it before it activates, either turning to dust or summoning a mini sandstorm for ~6 seconds which teleports you to a phased version of the steam pools in Feralas. Unfortunately, before I realised what was happening, partially due to feeling stunned for a couple of seconds, I was already being sucked up into the sandstorm, so there’s no pic to show for it ;P
Here you’ll find a bunch of docile camels and the elite named Dormus the Camel Hoarder with ~225k HP. From the buff you get, you’ll have around 15mins to kill Dormus or else he despawns meaning you’ll have to find another camel to come here. Don’t worry though he’s an easy fight. Once defeated, he’ll drop the Reins of the Grey Riding Camel. Looting the mount will earn you a feat of strength – Scourer of the Eternal Sands + Title: < Name > “the Camel-Hoarder” (see first pic).
I finally have something to show for my four rounds of mount farming. One down, three to go.
