The Griffon is a hidden mount found in the Crystal Desert in Path of Fire that can be unlocked after completing the Path of Fire storyline. The griffon’s special movement ability is flight. While it cannot gain altitude above its starting point, apart from a substantial hop at the start, it can flap its wings periodically to regain some of the altitude lost in gliding, allowing near-level flight. By hopping on to structures or elevated terrain, it can quickly gain height. This makes it in many aspects a more effective version of the glider introduced in Heart of Thorns.
A griffon has 5932 health. Applying a dye on the griffon will change the color of its feathers, primarily those along its wings, along with its ears, back, top of its neck, tips of the feathers on its forelegs, and tail. The griffon’s endurance regenerates in approximately 4 seconds; however, it regenerates faster if it is diving or grounded and is further shortened to about 1 second when performing dodge jump dive. A fully-upgraded griffon is the fastest mount available in the game, able to cover significant ground in flight following a boosted dive. Once the collection has been unlocked, players can get a temporary griffon from one of 5 Griffon Roosts. You can hold spacebar to continually command the griffon to flap its wings to stay into the air, which it will do each time your endurance is full. However, you can manually command the griffon to flap as soon as your endurance bar is filled at 3/4, which will not reduce the altitude gained compared to a full-endurance flap. Unlike Gliders, the griffon cannot use updrafts to gain altitude. The third Mastery introduces the ability to use wing flap while rising after a dive. The height gained from this varies depending on how fast you are currently going.
