A Griffon Tower

Steppes Station tower in Antonica

A Griffin Tamer

The typical appearance of the griffin tamers. Shown here: one at ground level, in Thundering Steppes.

The Griffin Towers are a mode of travel that allows players to reach several points within a zone quickly and safely. Simply hail griffin tamers to see where you can go within the zone. A map will appear and you can select the location you want to travel to. This is an automated mode of travel and you do not need to steer or watch for enemies as you do when you travel on foot or on a mount.

The entire travel system was significantly revamped in 2010, including travel by griffin.

The most significant changes to griffin travel in recent years include:

  • New griffin tamers were added in some locations, generally near docks, that stand on the ground rather than in a tower.
  • On occasion, newer NPCs with the same function have slight name variations, like those on the docks by Thurgadin, City of the Coldain.
  • Players are no longer required to do quests to use to fly on griffins. Quests are still present in some zones, but optional.
  • It is no longer to necessary to take a series of flights on the griffins to reach a destination in most zones.
  • In some rare cases, griffons now link back to the starter cities.


The look of the towers will vary somewhat to match the "theme" of the zone they are located in, when found in newer zones.
