Unlike a lot of mounts Rift has to offer players, Ravensong, the Ash Walker is not as simple as just purchasing it. Instead, players must go through multiple steps. In this guide we’ll be looking at what needs to be done to unlock this mount!

I want to start off by saying that this is going to take some time and effort. As a result, you will need to prepare to either get it all done or just pass up the mount altogether. It may be introduced again in the future, but there are no promises that this will happen. With that said, we’re going to continue on in the hopes that you’re willing to fight for the right to claim your own Ravensong, the Ash Walker mount! Note that this is part of the Rift Summerfest 2014 event.

Knocking Out Achievements

The longest (and arguably hardest) part about getting this mount unlocked is doing the achievements that are required. Technically there is only one that is needed (called Summer Loyalty), but that in itself involves doing some more. The achievements that are needed are as follows:

  • Summer Loyalty
  • The Summer Sleuth
  • Cape of the Sun
  • Beach Bash!
  • The Host with the Most
  • Let’s get this party started!

Let’s take a look at these one by one.

The Summer Sleuth

Goal: Collect the Party Punch Artifacts to locate Sam!

This requires a total of 9 different artifacts. They include the following:

  • Sam’s Breakfast Drink
  • A Carnivorous Plant
  • Creepy Eyed Plant
  • Summer Berries
  • Delicious Nectar
  • Bottled Elemental Essence
  • Juicy Melon
  • Honey and Juice
  • Red Glowing Berries

The artifacts are found in Shimmersand, along the beach. When the entire set of 9 has been completed, this achievement will be done and you will receive Sam the Tan and Punch Drunk Ram, a collectible pet.

Cape of the Sun

Goal: Equip the Cape of the Sun.

This just requires equipping the cape, which can be purchased for 25 Summerfest Merit Badges or 50 Credits in the cash shop.

Beach Bash!

Goal: Collect and use two of the three Summerfest Dimension Item Kits: Gazebo Kit, Summer Faer Hedge Kit, or Summerfest Beach Party Kit.

These are each purchased through the Rift store, and they all come with different prices. They are priced as follows:

  • Gazebo Kit: 725 Summerfest Merit Badges or 700 Credits
  • Summer Faer Hedge Kit: 950 Summerfest Merit Badges or 900 Credits
  • Summerfest Beach Party Kit: 350 Summerfest Merit Badges or 325 Credits

As you can see, the prices don’t just vary; they vary greatly. In fact, the cheapest option would be to go with Summerfest Beach Party Kit and Gazebo Kit, which results in a cost of 1075 badges. The most expensive would cost 1675, or an increase of 600! Your choice here will depend on whether you want to use the kits for your dimension or you are just trying to unlock the mount.

The Host With the Most

Goal: Collect and use the Summerfest 2014 companions.

This is a tough achievement, just due to how many companions are required. Here is the list:

  • Burnoulli
  • Backmane
  • Purple Cobra
  • Quiffles
  • Party Fowl
  • Egon
  • Goner
  • The Kingxalmathalmanar the IIIIVst
  • Snaps
  • Kyth
  • Micecream
  • Baderpiller
  • Blue
  • Sam the Sunburned Ram

Completing this achievement also rewards you with the Party Punch Elemental. As for how to obtain these pets? They are tradable and can be obtained through the Summerfest Party Basket (a reward for doing the Summerfest quests and sold in the Rift store for 750 Summerfest Merit Badges or 525 Credits) and the Random Companion Adoption Box, which is obtained in the Rift store for 700 Summerfest Merit Badges or 160 Credits.

Let’s Get This Party Started!

Goal: Open a Summerfest Party Basket.

This achievement is as simple as just doing one of the scavenger hunts, as they reward players with the basket. An alternative is to purchase it from the Rift store for 750 Summerfest Merit Badges or 525 Credits.

And On to the Platinum

As if doing all of the achievements above wasn’t enough, there is still another step: buying the mount. This isn’t too bad, though, in that it only costs 150 Platinum. It could be a lot worse! Once the achievements have been completed, simply open up the Rift store and purchase your very own Ravensong, the Ash Walker mount!


Obtaining the Ravensong, the Ash Walker mount takes a lot of work, but it brings with it the accomplishment of actually earning it. It is worth noting that it can be obtained, at a very rare rate, through the Summerfest Party Basket, but it is not worth counting on by any means. Especially when you add in the fact that the event is temporary, it makes sense to go out and earn it instead of playing the lottery if you actually want one. With that said, hopefully this guide has helped better understand what needs to be done in order to obtain this special mount!
