The Slayhound petsmount

The Slayhound is a big cat with long hair and fangs.

If you are in the Kwismas Island and your character level is at least level 60, you will be able to liberate this fantastic creature from its cage.

If you want to get a Slayhound you will have to complete the “Kwismas Stars” quest first – suffice to say that you’re going to need to dedicate days and days to finishing it! What will you get in return? A really powerful bonus: +80 in prospecting. You can do it!

Kwismas Island:

Kwismas Island is divided into three zones, each of which is dedicated respectively to characters level 1 to 70, 71 to 130 and 131 to 200. Each of these zones is populated with unusual monsters that can only be found on this island and from which you can harvest all sorts of presents! To get to Kwismas Island, talk to Hector Kwismas at [8,-6]. All subscribed players can go to the island and fight monsters but a level 20 character is required to complete the quests.

The island’s history:

Kwismas Island was separated from Frigost a long time ago and now it drifts around the far reaches of the ocean. It’s only when the month of Descendre is well under way that the currents push it towards the continent, just off the coast of Bonta.

Since a piece of the island was propelled towards Amakna, the village’s inhabitants have become accustomed to a thick layer of snow covering the houses as winter approaches. But, this year, Jiva has decided to intervene to re-establish the balance.  Djaul’s disciples will be in for a surprise.
