Steamspur Mountains

Getting there[edit]

Starting from Waypoint (map icon).png Magmatic Waypoint, head east across two basalt bridges to the first Shadow Imp and some lava-falls. Behind this imp you can jump up the little slope to the right of the lava. Follow the east bank of the lava-flow up the mountain to the Boiling-Hot Magma. Keep heading north up the slope, and when you can go up no further, jump slightly east onto the next slope.

With the springer (bunny/ rabbit mount) start from Avernan Waypoint and head west (to the left).

If you have a Springer, the next portion can be skipped by jumping up onto and over the rim of the volcano, right down to the Mastery Point, on your left.

Continue following the eastern edge of the volcano in an anti-clockwise direction. You will reach a sudden change in gradient where you'll briefly drop down into a trench - climb out of it and emerge on the other side. Now begin walking to the northwest, you will quickly come across a steep incline where you will begin to slip down; look for a small northwards v-shaped gulley where you can walk up the middle and follow it to the top.

At the top of this gulley, the mastery point will now be directly to the west of you. Jump down from the shelf and commune with the mastery point to claim the mastery insight.

A significantly simpler, but longer path starts at the Vista (map icon).png Maelstrom's Bile Vista and just follows the rim clockwise until you're above the point and can jump down. Neither a mount nor gliding is mandatory.

When you have Skyscale unlocked, you can start from Waypoint (map icon).png Maelstrom's Waypoint and use the rift skill near the lava pool to go all the way up through the volcano.
