Mounts & Ancients
Mythic Saga Guide Chapter Four: Mounts & Ancients
The First Mount
When you have carried on the main quest to a certain degree (character lv 15), Floatstone Mount, a tutorial quest, can be received at Solomon. He will give you a Floatstone as a gift, which is the most basic mount in the game. And it can be bought at the shop for 5 credits.
Upgrade the Mount
There are eight available mounts for Mythicans to ride, including Floatstone, Hover Blade, Quad Glider, Firestorm Wheel, Turtle Dragon, Celestial Crane, Royal Kirin, Golden Dragon, and Crow Phoenix.(The last five are respected as Ancients by Mythicans.) If you want to obtain the higher level mount, upgrading mount is necessary. The upgraded mount will get the increased quality and the greater quality it is, the higher the increased attributes of the mount’s owner will be.
Click the Mount icon at the bottom of the screen and click Upgrade at the lower right corner of that interface. But mount upgrade still need some material.
The Mount’s Attributes
Every mount can increase its owner’s attributes to some extent. The greater quality it is, the higher the increased attributes of the mount’s owner will be. Furthermore, with every promotion of the mount’s level, the increased attributes of its owner will correspondingly increase more.
You can use a Mount Bonus Orb to increase one of your mount’s attributes (Health, Magic, Melee Attack, Magic Attack, Armour and Warding) by 10. The bonus will transfer to corresponding attribute bonus added to the mount master. The higher your mount quality is, the better bonus your character will get.
Your mount is not only an important assistant on the battlefields, but also a “pack mule” for you. When your mount quality reaches Epic, the mount pack function will be available. You can leave your burdens to your mount if you like.
There are 4 types of mount packs: Small (6 slots), Medium (8 slots), Big (10 slots) and Super (13 slots). Open the mount window and drag the pack to the slot under your mount before you use the pack.
You can get Mount Gear Packs of all kinds of quality through instances. Open the pack to obtain a certain kind of Mount Gear: Antler, Armor, Rein, Accessory, Saddle or Horseshoe.
Mount Gear with higher quality gives you more basic attribute bonuses. And, the more giftedness the Mount Gear has, the more giftedness bonuses you will get.
Click ‘Upgrade Mount’ icon and click ‘Smelt,’ and you can upgrade your mount gear’s quality by consuming ‘Mount Ghost Stones.’ The more Mount Ghost Stones you use for one shot, the better the success chance of ‘Smelt’ is. There is a chance to get your mount gear’s giftedness changed during smelting. In order to prevent it from happening, you can use the ‘Seal of Gods Blood.’
Click ‘Upgrade Mount’ and click ‘Phase,’ and you can get your mount gear’s giftedness changed randomly by consuming gold or gold coins. You can also increase your mount gear’s giftedness by using ‘Spirit Blood’ which can be obtained by disenchanting mount gear.

The Tales of the Four Ancients
Turtle Dragon, Celestial Crane, Royal Kirin and Gold Dragon are worshiped by the Mythicans as Four Ancients. People believe the armored Turtle Dragon represents endurance, with which they hope they can get through all kinds of disasters and catastrophes throughout their life. The skillful Celestial Crane embodies dexterity, which they desire so much that they dream to be as agile and slight as it one day. The intelligent Royal Kirin indicates wisdom, which they had treasured as the determinant of victory since they became the inhabitants of this land. The mighty Gold Dragon represents destruction power, which they have been seeking to conquer everything blocking their way.
No one knows when those creatures came to the land of Mythica, but it’s said that it can be traced back to the ages before the religion of Sol and Lunar exists. If any Mythican can tame these ancients to be his or her mounts, he himself or she herself will be respected as a saint.
Most Turtle Dragons live in the Northern parts of Mythica, especially in Terra. They are peaceful and docile ancient creatures, but cannot be easily found any more in that many of them have fallen victims to those power hunters. The Turtle Dragon shell is a very rare material for armor or shield craft. But because of its hard and firm shell, Turtle Dragon cannot be easily harmed. In the ancient hunter manual, it says that more than 20 hunters are needed to capture one Turtle Dragon and mages who master fire magic are recommended to be hired. When cornered by fire, the Turtle Dragon may shelter in its solid shell, which is a great opportunity to catch it by united force.
Most Celestial Cranes inhabit in the Southern area of Mythica, namely Mythos. It’s elegance and dexterity remind people of the eternal beauty living in Skyland — Athena herself. It’s said that Celestial Cranes are favorite mounts for Saints and Arch-Priests. Sometimes, the graceful figure of Cataclysm Arch-Priest gliding on this amazing creature can be witnessed by admiring glances. The cruel truth is that these ancients’ number has been dwindling with hunting for centuries. Their feathers are important ingredients for Feather Orbs and Feather Essence. But catching a Crane is still not an easy task for its incomparable vigilance. According to the report, most captured Celestial Cranes were hunted by those most capable shadowy ghosts—assassins.
Royal Kirins are rarely seen now, but Ragnarok, which was an old kingdom united by Atlas, Terra and Mythos and collapsed centuries ago, was home to these giant Ancients. The reason why they left Ragnarok can never be revealed. However, there are rumors that they were seen in a cave at an uncharted island. It’s an old saying among Mythicans that you don’t know how to deal with that problem? Go and find a Royal Kirin. With the endless wits, these creatures are esteemed as people’s loyal consultants and advisors. But the most important thing is that you will never know where to find one. Moreover, a Royal Kirin can never be captured, but they will come for you only if you are respected by those wise titans.
Gold Dragon is the most mysterious Ancient among all the Four. For this era, Gold Dragons have not been found in Mythica and their habitat has never been told in any ancient tome. It is only known that they are described with formidable appearance and incredible destruction power. However, there is no way to test this rumor. It’s said that there was a city at the foot of Dragon Ridge. And it was destroyed by one Gold Dragon over night without any ruins left at all. But ancient tales indicate that Dragon Ridge is the bridge for Gold Dragon to come to Mythica from Sky, so that place got its name.
All in all, finding the Ancients is hard enough, let alone taming them unless you are super hero or saint... Wait, there is a vision in my head; something unstoppable is coming. Its name has been forgotten by time, making every creature on this continent tremble. Let me see what it is.
There is a forgotten ancient, a powerful being recorded in the pages of a dark grimoire.
The book speaks of a dark ritual to summon The Crown Phoenix.
The Ritual is recorded here in scrawling script – Read if you Dare…
“With fire blazed feathers and earth-pounding power the Phoenix’s flight sunders stone and sky!”
1. Sacrifice 1 Gold Dragon
2. When the Dragon has been reborn 10 times it becomes the Crown Phoenix
3. Each Rebirth has 6 stages of Reincarnation, Immortal, Mortal, Livestock, Hungry Ghost, Hell and Shura
4. To successfully complete a stage of Reincarnation 10 layers of renewal must be completed!
5. After each rebirth the Gold Dragon regains more of its power!
Is this sacrifice worthwhile? Perhaps, most Mythicans would ask the dark grimoire author the same question. The answer is a resounding “Yes”. It is mentioned in the book that Crown Phoenix’s feathers are stronger than the Turtle Dragon’s shell; its wings are more nimble than the Celestial Crane; its wits are as quick as the Royal Kirin; and its power far surpasses the Golden Dragon! Let’s check this form.
