Getting the fire snail mount called Magmashell isn't easy. First off, you will need to head to the Waking Shores on Dragon Isles. Here, you will need to farm for an Empty Magma Shell item. Alternatively, you can purchase one from the Auction House for around 10,000 gold.

If you are a bit stingy and don't want to spend any Gold on the Empty Magma Shell item, then you can kill Lavaslurper and Basalt Shell mobs. These are found around the river of lava South of the Obsidian Sanctum. The approximate map coordinates are 22,71. In case you are feeling super lazy and slow, like a snail...check out the map which we've marked below.

Now that you have an Empty Magma Shell in hand comes the hard part, as you will need to withstand lava.

You will now need to fly to Scalecracker Keep, and near the top of the mountain, you will see a large pool of lava. Inside this pool of lava is the Empowered Snail NPC. The coordinates are 71.2, 25.4.

Check out the image below for the exact location in the spirit of laziness once again.

With the Empty Magma Shell in your bags, run into the lava and click on the Empowered Snail NPC to start a channeled cast called Embiggening Snail. This cast lasts 20 seconds, which is where the difficulty comes into play, as most characters might die unless they are accompanied by a healer or can cast a Heal Over Time (HOT) effect on themselves before the process starts. 

There is another way to negate the lava damage in your quest to get the Magmashell mount in WoW Dragonflight. You will need to get your hands on an Everlasting Horn of Lavaswimming. This makes you immune to outdoor lava on Dragon Isles for 10 minutes and has a 30-minute cooldown. Get this toy from Siege of Dragonbane Keep strongboxes.

So that's it, a quick, step-by-step guide to getting the final fire snail mount, Magmashell, in WoW Dragonflight. Enjoy!
