I have been loving my new Saliraptor mount in EverQuest 2. But the only problem that I have faced was how slow it was. It says that it only increases ground speed by 60% compared to my mount which was 130 % and because I had them both equipped I was still getting the 130% in my stats section, but I just wasn’t seeing the speed. The Saliraptor said that it gives you 200% air speed (flying) which for some reason I assumed meant for riding griffins, but then I saw someone flying with a Saliraptor today and it got me thinking, how do I do that?
I went to YouTube and found a video of someone flying with their Saliraptor mount and I was kinda frustrated. I nearly left a comment asking how they did that, but I remembered that every time I do that, I end up finding the answer somewhere else and then regretting my question because it makes me look like an idiot.
There had to be a way that I could get it to work so I went back to where I got it from and I clicked the Saliraptor that is still there and it gave me instructions. All I have to do is hit the space bar while running. Well, I’ve been doing that and I barely make it off the ground. I thought, how in the heck is this not working? I decided perhaps my horse was the problem, so I right-clicked him and turned him into a house item and then tried it and I actually flew into the air. So it was the horse that was hindering me that whole time.
The only reason I kept the horse was because he ran faster than the Saliraptor, but he doesn’t run anywhere near the same speed as the Saliraptor does when he is soaring through the zone. So my beloved horse is relaxing inside of my house, probably pooping all over the furniture as we speak. Oh well.
This is not my video, but this is the video that I found earlier today demonstrating how you fly with a Saliraptor. It’s pretty awesome.
