A guide to getting the Miniature Elephant Mount in Black Desert Online.[toc]
To get a Miniature Elephant you will need 35 million in silvers and have to do a series of quests after. Make sure you convert the 35 million into 5x 10g gold bars and 3x 100g gold bars at the storage NPC and bring it with you. There doesn’t seem to be a level requirement, as long you got the silvers.
Head to Shakatu’s Villa in the north coast of Valencia. You will want to spend the 5x 10g gold bars buying a 7 day pass to Shakatu’s Villa from the Villa NPC at the entrance.
Once you spend the 5x 10g gold bars on the pass, enter the Villa and talk to Serazad inside.
She will give you the first quest in the series, which require you giving Shakatu (not her) 3x 100g gold bars to get a permit.
After you give Shakatu 30 million and return to Serazad, you have to do a series of quests
- Freshly Scooped Cool Water – Buy 20 Empty Bottles from a Material Vendor and get 20 Bottles of River Water. Use the NPC tab to locate the Material vendor inside Shakatu to buy the bottles. There is water right inside Shakatu that you can collect for river water.After you get the water, water the Elephant Nursery right outside the Villa.
- Freshly Prepped Folder – Gather 100 weeds and feed it to the Elephant Nursery. Much like the water, you have to gather it after you get this quest as the weed you had from before do not count. This part may take a while but there are some thickets in the canyon and road south of the Villa you can gather the weeds from. Thickets are the best for getting weeds and tend to give 1-5 weeds per gather usually. If you have pet cats you can use their detect node special ability to locate thickets for you.
- Owner of a Special Elephant – This the final quest, talk to the Stable NPC in Shakatu and receive your personal mini elephant mount!
Mini Elephant Mount
The Miniature Elephant Mount can carry only 1 person and it is fairly slow. It is great at carrying trade packs across the desert however. It will consume carrots to replenish its stamina and HP just like a normal horse.
It can carry 16 items and 830 LT of weight at level 1. Default speed/acceleration are 101%. At its maximum level (Level 15), it can carry 1200 LT of weight with a speed/acceleration of 104.8%.
You can craft armor for the elephants in the Horse Gear Workshop which has been updated with Elephant Gear. These armor require some materials only found in Valencia.
