The Hoardhunter Ursauk Mount is one of the new Collectibles arriving in The Elder Scrolls Online, starting from the upcoming limited-time event, Witches Festival. This fearsome beast can be summoned to make traversal more terrifying for passers-by in Apocrypha and beyond.
According to the official Witches Festival blog post, this morphing mount can be obtained by participating in the event's activities and defeating boss monsters. More specifically, players are to acquire Event Tickets throughout this event, including the first two tickets after defeating the first boss daily.
Once you've obtained enough Event Tickets, precisely ten Event Tickets according to rumors, they can locate the Impresario, who can be found at Daggerfall in Glenumbra, Davon's Watch in Stonefalls, and Vulkhel Guard in Auridon. Interact with the merchant NPC, where you must obtain the first fragment, Blessed Honeycomb, for the morphing mount.
Players are to wait for further details on when the remaining fragments will be released, and we'll update this guide to reflect it as such. After all the fragments have been obtained, they must combine all collected fragments to receive the Hoardhunter Ursauk Mount.
To achieve this, access the in-game Menu and scroll down to the Collections tab, where you'll need to select the Fragments option. Within this Menu, locate the Hoardhunter Ursauk Mount, and all the fragments can be found, which they'll need to merge to obtain the mount.
Once this is done, the mount will be readily available within the Collections menu, which you'll need to backtrack and select the Mounts option. Scroll down to find the Heavyweights tab and select it to find the Hoardhunter Ursauk Mount, which players can set as their default mount.
The Elder Scrolls Online is available for the PlayStation 4|5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox Game Pass, Mac, and PC via Epic Games Store and Steam. Players can install the game launcher detailed in this guide as Update 40 releases for Mac and PC on 30th October 2023.
