These are the expected rewards for a level 80 player.


Mount up and use your special action key to lasso the beast. You will typically need 3-5 players in order to successfully stop the Hydra, as it will have the Speed Bonus (fifteen percent).png Swift Flight effect, making it far too quick to catch otherwise. Once it's been successfully lassoed, damage it until it runs again. Repeat as needed.
