GW2 Roller Beetle Mount Unlock and Collections Guide

GW2 Roller Beetle Mount unlock and collections guide.

The Roller Beetle is the 6th mount in GW2 you can acquire by simply doing the collection and achievements associated with Season 4 Episode 3 of Living World. There is no gold sink other than 3 collections you have to do that can take a few hours to complete. It is a fast mount, capable of traversing over terrain in a short amount of time by using the boost (spacebar).

3. Junundu Ichor

Drops from junundu wurms in the Crystal Desert. You can find Junundu wurms in the sulfur area of The Desolation. Fighting them can be a bit annoying due to the damage from the ground but there are rocks you can stand on and range them.

gw2-roller-beetle-guide-42gw2-roller-beetle-guide-43

4. Hearty Beetle Slime

Harvested from the Alpha Beetle in the Far Silverwastes. To get to Far Silverwastes, take these Skritt tunnels. Alpha Beetle spawns in the left corner of the Far Silverwastes.

8. Return to Petey

Petey is right by Gorrick. Congrats on your new Roller Beetle mount!

  • Mobilizer

    Wow, not even a day and already a guide’s up. Thanks, Dulfy!

  • Atlas

    Hi Dulfy,

    it looks like you have here a formatting issue, the whole article is visible on your GW2 front page. Most probably you defined the full article as header text.

    But anyway, thanks for the guide!

  • Sahron Bone

    At the bounty part . which bounty is it exactly?

    • Aria of the FENG

      i guess any will do.

    • Concerned Dog

      Any will do.

  • lemon_cookies

    note: After completing Forearmed is Forewarned story instance, then talk to Spearmarshal Zaeim, then Gorrik.

  • Daniel Schmidt

    “Contain Scarab outbreaks in Domain of Kourna. These event occurs near
    the Front Line area. It is an event where you use your mount to run over
    Scarab mounds.” I did this Event 3 times and didnt get anything. Is it random?

    • Quisquiliae Pandam

      I got in in the first run through. 4 runs through my wife got it. So I tend to think there is a level of RNG in a number of the achievements.

    • Chez_Helen

      Apparently the Scarab Egg in the Meta event is also RNG, some people are having to do this numerous times to get the item, I have done it twice with no luck yet.

  • Raizel

    It’s unfair that many people still can’t complete Forearmed mission due to bugs while others did it smoothly.

    • Keres

      I downloaded the Taco update from Tekkit today, and the only thing I see are the cache farms and harvesting.

      • Keres

        Scratch that, I’m just blind. The icons are there, just no paths. And nicely notated with numbers for the stages too. Tekkit does it again 🙂

  • i hatechosingnames

    Don’t suppose there is a taco path pack for these yet?

    • Guest

      There is actually. Check on Tekkit’s site

  • Manwithtwohands

    Wow, anet is really milking the concept of fetch quests and carrots on a stick. gj

    • Shaggy

      weve come a long way from the fetch quests of yesteryear’s mmos though. who can forget quests where you had to kill hundreds of the exact same creature to collect ingredients for arbitrary shit?

      at least this has variety.

  • KJ

    Beetle Juice achievement should be repeatable up to 3 times.

  • Zennoby

    Aaaaaand, if you DID wander around the map after talking to the spearmarshal (like me), then Gorrik will brush you off and you can’t advance.
    What now?

    • Just progress with the story and you will get the chance to do it again

      • Ainseland

        datz crazy,,, well typical anet bug we juz need 2 deal with it 4 da sake of new mount

      • Zennoby

        Thanks, that worked.

  • Ainseland

    datz a long @zz quest/collection almost like black desert online quest

    • edward hughes

      1 hour and i had 2 out of 3 collections done and the last one i dot see taking more than 1.5 hours

    • hmm

      At least it’s not time-gated this time and you don’t need to fork out 250g.

    • Mr. Principal

      Finished all 3 collections in ~5-6 hours.. (I had to take a break from playing to rest..fever sux..!)

  • Doghouse

    Get the Junundu drop at Junundu Hatchery down in the bottom right. Way easier than waiting for hours to pick off a single worm before someone else does. Vet worms spawning all the time, and like wolves they spawn a couple of non-vets (which CAN also drop the food – had it happen on one of my two accounts).

  • Luna

    Sand Jackal Run WP is a great place to grab the Junundu Ichor. I found a vet that spawned very quickly between the platform and the big rock south of the wp then moves onto the rock – took two tries, but it spawned so quickly that I think I got it in less than a couple of minutes. This is a great guide – thanks, Dulfy!

  • Evan Sarver

    I think the Junundu Hatchery POI is a better place to get the Junundu Ichor. It’s loaded with worms and has handy platforms to kill them from. Went to your suggested location, and the spawn rate was awful, and every time one spawned it was dead before I could reach it due to all the sulpher.

  • Joshua Bultman

    Hey all on the Beetle Saddle Collection i just killed a Veteran Golem mark l and i got the item i need for collection for the beetle doesn’t seem it has to only be a mark ll it can also be a mark l. Good Hunting All!!!!!

  • korval

    Don’t say Beetle Juice three times.

  • Brad Allison

    “You will defeat the big golem boss and then have to destroy 11 of the
    Plague Experiments. Killing any one of these experiments will give you
    the item.”

    That’s incorrect. It’s a random drop.

    I killed 3 experiments and got NOTHING.

    • prudence

      Yes, that happened to me too. This is the last item in my beetle feed collection and I still can’t get it 🙁 I did the meta 3x

  • Djinn

    Hearty Beetle Slime: kill all the Giant Beetles in the area to spawn a Champion Giant Beetle which will give the food on death.

  • YAY! Finished mine tonight! Thank you, Dulfy! <3

  • Edward Durbin

    Pete doesnt show next to gorrick after turning in last quest.. where is he?

  • Александр Смирнов

    5. Plagued Struts

    Dropped by golems in the Domain of Kourna. There is a single Veteran
    Mark II golem that spawns right in front of the Gates to Gandara.

    theres an error, its Mark 1

  • Ayakaru

    9. Untested Speed Serum
    whelp

    wasted 20 minutes of my life trying to figure it out by the hints..
    it was in a different region altogether

  • Voshi

    Beetle feed 4. Hearty Beetle Slime. The alpha beetle has been updated to a champion beetle to give people more chance to tag it

  • ƒukengrüven

    I’m going to name mine “Ringo”

  • I absolutely don’t get training this thing.

  • BrownieC

    About the “Junundu Ichor” drop: I actually got mine in Vabbi.
    West of Vehtendi Academy waypoint in Kaluun Ravine at the Junundu Nests POI. No sand to worry about and very easy.

  • Uno

    For Hearty Beetle Slime: the event starts after killing the giant beetle, they no longer spawn randomly.

  • Kara

    For anyone else who was confused by the skritt tunnel system like I was, the camp resolve leads you to the central silver waste tunnel and from there you go up to the north north skritt tunnel and that will take you to the far silverwaste

    • Bpb

      can also just jump over the walls with a bunny and ignore the tunnels

  • Darth Shepard-Picard

    I’ve done the leyline anomaly thing twice now and no dice with the item. Do I need to do something specific to get it or should I just keep doing the event until the gods smile upon me?

  • Theijar

    5. Plagued Struts: The Golem can be any Golem (except the one that appears at the end of the meta at the Inquest Lab), I got mine at the end of an event (Repurpose the golem), after killing the Golem mini boss at the end. Also some Golems spawn close to the pylon when the meta activates them

  • Supreme Kek

    Collection 3 Item 4. Hearty Beetle Slime -> Can also kill the Champion Spotted Beetle at the opposite side of the “Far Silverwastes”

  • DarkAlchemist

    Far too many meta events/world events for this stupid mount.

  • Ex Razzer

    I’ve made a fast video guide with help of this page if some1 prefers videos over text 🙂
