Bind on Use:

This mount is not bound to a character until it is used. That means that you can buy, sell, trade, or give it away.


With the Vial of the Sands you actually become the mount, and transform into a Sandstone Drake that can carry one ally! The Vial of the Sands Alchemy recipe can be found (rarely) in Canopic Jars gathered via Tol'vir Archaeology and the recipe is bound to the player. This means an Alchemist must also advance Archaeology in order to learn to craft this mount, but the Vial of the Sands itself is tradeable and can be learned by any player.

Introduced in:
