Bound Shadehound Mount - Craftable Maw Mount in Patch 9.0.5
09.03.2021 um 14:40
A couple weeks ago, we published a post talking about
, a potential new system requiring materials from The Maw in Patch 9.0.5.
Since then, we cracked the secret behind the system! Stygia Crafting is actually a part of a mini Maw secret leading to the
, a new mount in Patch 9.0.5. This Shadehound mount is the third mount that works in The Maw, but does not require completing the Twisting Corridors or being lucky with Beastwarrens Hunts! This mount requires a couple hours of grinding and traveling around the Maw to unlock it, but it has no timegating whatsoever on it.
As 9.0.5 is now live, this mount is now obtainable!
Below, we describe all the steps necessary to obtain the Bound Shadehound mount.
Be mindful that you do need 3500 Stygia to complete this puzzle.
and Stygia Materials
On patch 9.0.5, Ve'nari sells two new items, one of them being the
. The Stygia Dowser is an item that stays in your bags and allows you to search for Stygia Nexuses. Stygia Nexus are small balls of green energy, reminiscent of engineering motes from past expansions. Stygia Nexuses are usually in areas that are hard to reach, such as behind hordes of mobs, deep inside caves, or in areas only reached via grappling with the
This item will only show up if you're Appreciated by Ve'nari
The Stygia Dowser allows you to track Stygia Nexus on the minimap, and when used nearby a Nexus, it will drain it, granting you a small amount of Stygia, as well as some
Stygia Delirium and the Rune Codex
The first step of the secret requires completing a special puzzle located within Domination Keep (located deep within Perdition Hold) and collecting pages of a book. The puzzle is located on a platform area near the platform that leads to the Soulsteel Forge, is accessible by grappling, and will be signaled on your minimap. The area has a green fog covering the platform, and when you arrive there, you will get an extra action button to use your Stygia Dowser.
The grappling location can be found at
and the Stygia Delirium platform is located at
Once you use your Stygia Dowser, you will be phased out and become a ghost, and a chest with 6 glowing runes will appear at the center of the platform. You can click on 2 of the glowing runes at a time to swap their positions around. To solve this puzzle, you need to pay attention to your surroundings - There are 6 spikes on the platform you're on, and each spike will have a glowing rune on top of them. You need to order the runes near the chest to match the order of the spikes on the platform.
Be careful, as you DO have limited attempts, and if you fail enough times, you will not be able to attempt the puzzle again for TWO HOURS
Once you match the runes with the pillars, the chest will open, giving you the
. Once you obtain the Crumbling Stele, Ve'nari will have another item for sale - The
, for another 2000 Stygia. Once you read the Partial Rune Codex, you will notice there are pages missing:
<Examining this codex reveals many pages are missing or torn. Of the pages intact, several runes inscribed upon the Stele are represented.
It seems three of the pages needed to understand the Shadehound diagram are missing. Perhaps finding the pages would allow you to translate and perform the ritual.>
The missing pages of the Rune Codex can be found in different places scattered through The Maw:
can be found at the back of Death's Howl, one of the many caverns in the southern portion of the Beastwarrens. Night Fae Covenant members will recognize this cave as the place where they went to save Rezan from The Maw.
Death's Howl Cave Entrance:
can be found in Perdition Hold, on the platform where the rare
can be found at the upper level of the Tremaculum, behind the location where Anduin was kept prisoner during the Maw introduction.
Once all three pages are found and added to the Partial Rune Codex, it will transform into the
, giving you a walkthrough of the rest of the steps you need! The Crumbling Stele will also be updated to give you a series of runes. It is currently unknown if each player gets a different set of runes, or if its the same for everyone.
From the Intact Rune Codex:
<The first part of the translation explains the process of smithing an armored husk using metal forged from Stygia and a set of Soulforger's tools at the Forge of Domination.>
<The second part of the translation describes the process of using a binding altar to join a willing soul of an appropriate form retrieved from "the flow of the river" with the runed husk.>
<The final page describes runic magic that must be cast while mounted to bind the Shadehound to its rider.>
From the Crumbling Stele:
The first two portions of the puzzle can be worked at the same time, but the results of both portions need to be obtained to unlock the third and final step.
Stygia Crafting and Armored Husk
For this first portion of the secret, you need to find the Soulsteel Anvil that allows you to convert
. This area is located at the deepest portion of Domination Keep, and it is accessible via grappling with a grappling point path that starts in Domination Keep.
The Domination Keep grapple is located at
and once climbed to the highest platform, the Soulsteel Anvil is at
The Soulsteel Anvil in the area is interactable, and when opened, allows access to a special crafting menu, called Stygia Crafting. Within this Anvil, you can currently craft two items:
- Requires 10
- Requires 1
Werkzeuge des Seelenschmieds
You will need a total of 200
to craft the

, after you fully translate the Rune Codex.
The Stray Soul
The second portion of the puzzle involves us getting a stray soul from "the flow of the river". This is a fairly obvious clue - Roaming around Gorgoa, the River of Souls, you can find a
. This wolf soul will follow the flow of the river and despawn on the northern end, respawning at the southern end shortly after and beginning his path over again. To obtain his item, simply find, approach the wolf and interact with it. The wolf will enter your Soulkeeper and grant you a
The Binding Ritual
Once you have both the
, you can go to the last portion of this secret. The Binding Altar used in the process of binding the wolf soul to the armored husk can be found in the Mawsworn area just south of Ve'nari's Refuge. Just approach the altar and click on it to bind them and create the

, where you are required to summon your Feral Shadehound, mount on it and bind it to you! Once you use the provided item, you will mount on the Feral Shadehound (it will start running wildly across The Maw, so use it in a safe place), and a vehicle bar will appear with four runes - The same four runes shown in the completed Crumbling Stele. Click on the runes on the order provided by the Crumbling Stele and you will bind the mount to you, completing the quest and granting you the
This is a much lighter recolor of the other Shadehound mounts, the
