The Skyscale is awarded after the following succession of achievments:

Domain of Vabbi

After these initial unlocks are done, just pick a map and complete it out for all the waypoints. I recommend this order (but it does not matter which order you do this in):

  • Domain of Vabbi (since you ended there, you can pick these up while you're still there)
  • Jahai Bluffs
  • Domain of Kourna (Get the Dust Mite Tornado one while here)
  • Domain of Istan
  • The Desolation
  • Elon Riverlands
  • Crystal Oasis
  • Desert Highlands
  • Thunderhead Peaks
  • Mount Maelstrom
  • Bloodtide Coast
  • Fields of Ruin
  • Blazeridge Steppes
  • Black Citadel
  • Bitterfrost (or Frostgorge Sound if you don't have that LS3 episode, requires Claw of Jormag event if that's thecase)
  • Dry Top
  • Silverwastes

Day 3-6 – Raising Skyscales[edit]

Go back to Gorrik in Sun's Refuge and interact with the egg. Then you stare at it. Stare at it super hard. Afterwards, talk to Gorrik to advance the collection.

To progress any of these sub-collections, acquire the items and return to Sun's Refuge. When you approach the hatchling your skill bar will be replaced and allow you to interact with it.

Skyscale Care[edit]

For the whole collection you need to craft 12 Piece of Skyscale Food.

Item Discipline(s) Materials Acquisition
Piece of Skyscale Food.png Piece of Skyscale Food (12) Mystic Forge
 
Trading Post
 
300 Quartz Crystals charged at Places of Power
 
Trading Post
 
Gathered

Take the food to Sun's Refuge to feed the hatchling.

You can only feed the hatchling 3 times a day! This is why this step needs 4 days.
This sub-collection will take a minimum of 4 days to complete as a result. Progress is tracked as an event bar while inside Sunspear's Refuge. Meanwhile you can complete two other collections:

Skyscale Treats[edit]

Kill any of these creatures for a chance (not guaranteed, but around 20%) drop. Champion versions have higher drop rates. Acquire the treats then return it to Sun's Refuge:

You can get 9/12 of these in Desert Highlands. The drop rate is good enough to not bother looking for more concentrated farm spots imo. Here's a map of the overlapping spots in Desert Highlands

  • Sand Lion - Desert Highlands
  • Iboga - Desert Highlands
  • Jacaranda - Desert Highlands Note: Up on the cliffs
  • Sand Eels - Desert Highlands | Crystal Oasis
  • Rock Gazelles - Desert Highlands
  • Sand Sharks - Desert Highlands | Crystal Oasis
  • Skale - Desert Highlands
  • Skelk - Desert Highlands
  • Spiders - Desert Highlands Note: These are in the Dwarven Ruins but accessible without the rooms.
  • Minotaur - Desert Highlands
  • Scarabs (Desert Insects) - Desert Highlands

  • Bats - Elon Riverlands
  • Wyvern - Elon Riverlands, Verdant Brink

Notes[edit]

  • Feeding treats does NOT have a daily limit. You may either feed them as you acquire them or all at once.
  • Killing the Legendary Wyvern in Verdant Brink is almost an guaranteed drop.

Skyscale Toys[edit]

Craft and buy these items then return to Sun's Refuge:
