The miniature elephant mount can carry one person and is used to actively transport trading goods across Valencia. Although this adorable mount moves quite slowly and has a very slow AFK speed, it is much more efficient than using a horse or walking as it can carry more weight. At level 1 it has a maximum weight limit of 830LT as well as 16 inventory slots. The elephant can go up to a maximum of level 15, at which it can carry a maximum of 1200LT. Once you have your elephant you will need to feed it Carrots (just like a horse) to increase its stamina/endurance.
How to obtain a Miniature Elephant
The miniature elephant is only obtainable by following a short quest line in Valencia.
You will need a total of 40 million silver to complete the quests, make sure this is changed into 4 x 100G bars and brought with you.
You should also bring 20 Empty Bottles with you to save time.
Go to Shakatu’s Villa just west of Shakatu village in Valencia. Buy a 7-day pass at the Villa Keeper “Dumaham” just outside the entrance. This costs 10 million silver. Once you have your pass, head inside and talk to the Villa Butler “Serazad”. She will have a quest for you which will send you to Shakatu village to pick up a permit. The permit costs 30 million silver and will unlock the rest of the quest line. If the quest does not show up, press “O” to open your quest log and make sure all quests are selected at the bottom (like in the image below).
Go back to Serazad at Shakatu village and complete 2 gathering quests:
- [Villa] Freshly Scooped Cool Water
- You will need 20 Empty Bottles for this part of the quest. If you brought some with you, there is a small fountain outside of the villa where you can gather the water. If you didn’t bring them with you, they can be bought at the material merchant in Shakatu village. There is a small body of water at Shakatu village where you can gather the 20 bottles of water required for the quest. Stand in the water then right-click the empty bottles in your inventory to start gathering. Once you have enough water, go back to Shakatu villa and give the water to the elephant outside the Villa entrance.
- [Villa] Freshly Prepared Fodder
- This quest requires you to gather a total of 100 weeds. There are various bushes around Shakatu and south of the villa where you can gather the weeds from. Star Anise trees at Shakatu farmland and Date Palm Trees in Shakatu will give you weeds. Once you have gathered 100 weeds, you must go back to the elephant outside the villa and feed it.
Next, you must go back inside and talk to Serazad. She will send you back to Shakatu village to talk to the stable master “Batirma”. After talking to the stable master, you will be given a registration token which you can use at any stable to register your new elephant.
This quest line can only be completed once, but there are repeatable quests that become available afterward. These repeatable quests are available from the NPC “Shakatu“. There are a total of 4 quests with different complete conditions:
- Give Shiny Golden Seal – [Mediah Trade] x20
- Give Shiny Golden Seal – [Calpheon Trade] x20
- Give Shiny Golden Seal – [Imperial Conquest] x10
- Give Gahaz Seal x1200 (obtainable from killing Gahaz bandits)
In addition, you will also require 2 x 100G bars (20 million silver). The quest will give you a “Haystack for Elephant” as a reward. This needs to be placed on a farm (garden/fence) and takes up 10 grid spaces. Once the elephant is fully grown, you can harvest it like a normal plant, to obtain a Miniature Elephant registration token.
Miniature Elephant Skills
Miniature Elephants have a maximum level of 15 and can learn the skills listed below.
The most desired skill is the Quick Run, which increases the Elephant’s overall speed. You can re-roll the skills using a Mount Change Coupon, but it is much more efficient to just get a new Miniature Elephant by completing the repeat quests and leveling it back up again.
Miniature Elephant Gear
Miniature Elephant gear can be enhanced using Black Stone (Armor) up to +5.
You must then use Concentrated Magical Black Stone (Armor) from +5 up to +10.
If the enhancement is +6 or higher and fails, it will go down by one enhancement level. For example: If the gear is +7 and you fail to enhance to +8, it will drop back to +6.
Camels came into the game with the Valencia Patch Update. In the Valencia desert, all horses (other than the Unicorn T9 Horse) have slower movement and cannot use skills. Therefore, camels are the best way to travel.
Once you have your camel you will need to feed it Dry Thicket to recover its stamina/endurance. Camels can level up to a max of level 20.
There are 2 ways to obtain a camel mount:
- Quest Reward
- Imperial Seals
The Camel quest takes only a few minutes to complete. The only requirement for this quest is that you must be level 54+. Go to the stable master “Bochlo” in Sand Grain Bazaar in Valencia and pick up the quest Your Best Friend in the Desert. You must gain 3 pieces of knowledge by talking to NPCs around Sand Grain Bazaar. The quest is straightforward but can only be completed once. As a reward, you will be given a Light Brown Camel Voucher which can be registered at the Stable Master.
If the quest is not showing for you, make sure you have all quests turned on in your quest window.
You can exchange Shiny Golden Seal – [Imperial Training] x5 for a Light Brown Camel Registration. The easiest way to obtain the seals is to capture a wild tier 5 horse and then level it up to level 15.
You can now take it to any Stable Keeper and put the horse in the stable. You will then have the “Imperial Horse Delivery” option which allows you to trade the horse for 50% of its horse market value and you will also receive 5 of the Shiny Golden Seals. The amount of seals you get is linked to the Tier of the horse, which is why it’s faster to catch one wild tier 5 horse and level it.
Once you have the seals, take them to one of the following Stable Keeper NPCs to exchange them for a Light Brown Camel Registration:
- Tanzine – Valencia City
- Vatonee – Valencia City
- Nassr – Valencia City
- Bochlo – Sand Grain Bazaar
- Batirma – Shakatu
- Kadram – Rock Post
- Eugene – Ibellab Oasis
- Nidgoveh – Ancado Inner Harbor
You can also exchange 15 seals for a Deep Brown Camel which is a reskin with small benefits. This camel has 105% base stats at level 20, compared to the Light Brown Camel which only has 100% base stats. It also has a slightly higher weight limit but requires more EXP to level up.
