World of Warcraft has brought back their “micro-holiday” known as Call of the Scarab for a few days. It’s a celebration of Ahn’Qiraj’s gates opening all the way back in the vanilla days of WoW, and part of this event lets you ride a pair of mounts for a limited time. Let’s find out how to get your hands on the Ruby (for Horde players) and Sapphire (for Alliance characters) Qiraji mounts.
The Qiraji mounts can be purchased with a single Abyssal Crest. You can earn this by defeating some of the bosses found in the areas outside the Ahn’Qiraj temple and ruins. There are four zones you can use: the Twilight Outpost, the Twilight Base Camp, the Twilight Post, and Twilight’s Run Cave.
The Twilight Cultists that populate the area will drop three pieces of armor you need to put on: the Twilight Cultist Robe, the Twilight Cultist Mantle, and the Twilight Cultist Cowl. Once you’re wearing all three, locate the Lesser Wind Stone, which will allow you to summon a boss for the area. A Crimson Templar, Azure Templar, or Hoary Templar will appear. These are not elites, so if you’re alone, don’t worry about them. Once defeated, they will drop the Abyssal Crest that you need.
Return to Silithus and find Warlord Gorchuk on the Horde side or Field Marshal Snowfall for the Alliance. You can exchange your Abyssal Crest for the Ruby/Sapphire Qiraji Resonating Crystal, but keep in mind that these will not add the mounts to your normal Mount tab. They will stay where you place them in your bag, and you will have seven days to enjoy riding them around before they disappear until the next Call of the Scarab event.
