Springers are bounding beasts whose powerful legs easily maneuver them through the craggy landscapes of the Desert Highlands and beyond.

— In-game description

The Springer is one of the mounts found in the Crystal Desert in Guild Wars 2: Path of Fire. The springer has an unrivaled ability to jump straight up into the sky. You can use it to jump over cliffs, walls, and other hard-to-reach locations. Hold down the hotkey to charge the jump; the longer you charge, the farther up you'll go.

Unlocking[edit]

The springer is unlocked at the Highjump Ranch in Stampede Uplands in the northern part of Desert Highlands. To get there, follow the cliffs northwest until you reach the Highjump Gap point of interest located west of Auburn Hills. The raptor's Canyon Jumping mastery is required to cross the canyon.

It is possible to reach this area through many other means; nevertheless, the required heart Help out around Highjump Ranch will not show up until you have trained the Canyon Jumping mastery.

Completing the Renown Heart allows you to unlock the mount by purchasing the Springer item from Stablemaster Unja for 50  Trade Contract.png Trade Contracts and Gold coin.

Notes[edit]

  • Can take in more fall damage than the other mounts, aside from the Skimmer, Griffon, and Skyscale which take no fall damage.
  • Has approximately 95% fall damage reduction with Fortified Descent.
  • If holding forwards while charging and holding it after release of charge, the springer will go forward more than if you held forwards after jumping. You can also change the springer's direction while the jump is being charged.
  • The springer regenerates its entire endurance bar in 2 seconds.

Trivia[edit]

  • While idle, the springer may perform several animations:
    • The springer will clean its face and one of its ears like a rabbit would do. This is the animation played when giving springers a treat.
    • The springer may raise its ears with an alert expression, smell the air, then shake its head.
  • When this mount is dyed, the hair on its head, ears and tail are colored, along with some stripes on its back.
  • The springer may be based off the jerboa or a springhare. It also has features resembling those of a kangaroo, such as the large claws on its feet and its tripod walk.
  • The springer's theme is known as "Highland Hares" in the Path of Fire soundtrack.
