— Adventure objective

Time Trial: Skimmer Slalom is an adventure in the Labyrinthine Cliffs in which players need to move through all the rings as fast as possible. This is the adventure version of the Skimmer Slalom Race, with identical mechanics and course. However, the adventure is able to be activated at any time when the race event is not currently active.

Getting there[edit]

Once at the Labyrinthine Cliffs, the adventure can be started by talking to the Time Trial NPC below the cliffs with the Sky Docks waypoint and to the south. However, the adventure is disabled during the mount race.

Mechanics[edit]

The objective is to move through the rings in sequence using mounts. The next ring is shown on the map using an orange flag on a black circle. The adventure ends at the final ring, which takes you across a finish line. A Skimmer can be rented from the Mount Trainer [Skimmer Rental] NPC just north of the starting point.

Most of the race takes place over water, where the skimmer has the fastest movement speed. However, there is a portion which covers land, in which case it is useful to swap mounts (to either Raptor or Jackal) to move over more quickly for that small segment, and then swap back to the skimmer when the water portion continues.
