Bound Shadehound


Today we are gonna get the build your Maw mount! Well it will most likley take more than 1 day. To start you need to make sure you have 3500 stygia. You can just start with 1500 like I did to get first part done though.

Once you have at least 1500 stygia head over to Vanari. With Stygia Dowser In bags 1500 stygia from Vanari. For anyone without a stealth option I recomend you accept Words of Warding Quest from Vanari. Do this quest to get the cloak from it so you can stealth around if you don't have stealth. You will want to use this cloak for this for most of this guide. So don't turn in the quest till you're done if you need it or unless you can pick it up again. It's great for farming the nodes you will need later as well as getting all your pages. You just do the quest up to killing the Spectral Assasin to get our cloak.

Stealth over to 23.8, 68.3 in Partition Hold, use grapple point above on the arch.(look up)

Go left than left again on the bridge and use the grapple up to the green mist cloud.

Use an extra action button to activate the cloud.

Look at the runes above and the runes on chest and make them match the runes (or images) above the chest. They are in the order left to right from looking at them where you come up. So the middle should be the grapple you came in on.

You get a limited amount of attempts. So take your time and only switch what you have to. If you take too many swaps you will see the words “you do not belong here” and be killed outside the gate with a 2 hour debuff called Sygia Dampening.

I recorded me and Mirima doing this in the video below. Its kinda long and is not edited.

When you do solve it, you will receive crumbling steel and be teleported off platform.

Head back to Vanari to get The Partial Rune Codex for 2000 more stygia. There are two pages missing. We have to find them.

Head to Beast Wardens you can use the shortcut

Than go to Death Howl’s cave @48.8, 84.7

The page is located in the back left side of the cave.

Head to Partition hold @27.2, 72.2 use the cloak again to get around if you can't stealth.

Take teleport @ 27.6, 17.3 to get to the north part of the Termaculum. The page is at the very end of the platform.

Learn all the pages individually.


Now you need to go to the River of Souls to find the Wolf Soul running around. He Spawns on the southern end and follows the flow up to the north and despawns @54.47,12.96. Click on him for some R.P.(roleplay or text) so he will join you.

Kill Rare Soul Forger Rhovus @35, 41 to get Soul Forgers tools at some point during your next part..


Now you must grind out the Nexus mist. Collect 200 Stygia dust and 200 stygia Bars from them. You collect them from the green glowing orbs all over the maw. Some are in some pretty hard to reach places. Warning: If you get feared, put in combat etc it will break the channel and lose the node and its resources. The nodes will appear just like herb or ore nodes on your map.


Nodes seem to spawn two per area and in random hidden or rare places. I don't recommend farming a single node because spending too much time on the one wont get you anywhere. Depending on who else is farming nodes and where they are spawning will give you your rate of time. A lot of people spent the most time on this part of the quest.


There are a lot of already known spots for them. If you want you can have them all at once on your map with an addon called Paste and Tom Tom. There is a link to the paste bin with known locations for these spots below. Thank you Nattahai on wowhead for all of these. You can of course use these with only Tom Tom to find the waypoints one by one as well. Whichever is less confusing for you.

Once you have collected all your pieces head to Domination Keep and grapple up to the very top @20.2, 67 for the Soul Steel Anvil.


Craft 20 stygia bars on the anvil and Combine them with the Soul ForgersTools.


The optional part is to take the Chaotic Rift to get down and take you to Zovaal’s Cauldron for the last part of the secret. I went because I wanted to see it for myself.


Go to the Binding Alter @45.2, 48.2 to combine Armored Husk and the Willing Wolf Soul to get your Feral Shadehound.


Read Crumbling Stele to get the rune order for the next part. I Wrote them down because you will be doing them on the fly while riding the hound that does not stop.You can also take a snip or screenshot and leave it nearby so you can see it.


Use Feral Shade hound to start the quest “Feral Shade Hound” so you can bind him to you.


Be ready to run the hound into a cage or pillar so you can do your runes in correct order while he runs into it. This way you dont aggro anything or fall off anything. Use your screenshot or written runes and put them in the correct order using the bar at bottom to enter them in for the quest.


This will complete your quest and give you your Bound Shadehound!
