Before you go further about the achievement, you might wonder about what this achievement is. Actually, Elon Riverland is another zone in the Crystal Desert. The story said that it was a desolate land until the Palawa Joko diverted the Elon river to the desert. And those areas are now thriving. The place that is located in the region of crystal desert is the location where there are many achievements to finish. At the same time there are also tons of events to do. However, this set of achievement is one of many categories where it is mainly earned in the Elon rivers. Aside from the griffon mount achievements, here is the guide to all GW2 Elon Riverlands Achievement.
