Blueprint Path

The blueprint path for Griffin is below.



  • Taming Griffins requires a trap due to their exceptional speed and aggression. They are highly valuable because they're fast, powerful, don't require saddles, can carry two passengers, and look visually striking. However, they can only pick up smaller creatures. Remember to have cryopods for easier handling.

  • Griffins can be stubborn when trying to fly them into a trap.

  • New tamed Griffins should be handled carefully to avoid early mishaps.

  • Always ensure the area is clear of threats before engaging a Griffin.

  • Griffins can be tamed using a crossbow with a specific time interval between shots.

  • On Ragnarok, ensure you are fully prepared when attempting to tame to avoid potential mishaps.

  • General taming pens like the ones for Argentavis work for Griffins.

  • Snow owls can be used in tandem with crossbows for a safer Griffin taming experience.

Additional Tips
  • Griffins don’t require saddles.

  • The Griffin's dive ability might be affected if you're holding an item like a map.

  • Griffins have a powerful dive attack and can be ridden while using weapons.

  • Griffins excel in egg theft, particularly in Fjordur.



Gryphon Magnificum is undoubtedly a sight to behold. Many ancient myths tell of various depictions of the Griffin over the ages, but what is never disputed is its majestic and mysterious nature. With the front half of an eagle and the back half of a lion, it is as if these two creatures somehow fused together to form a superior land and air predator. While one's first instinct might be to approach the creature and marvel at its beauty, that would be a very poor decision. Its range of attacks makes it one of the more versatile predators I've witnessed. If its presence alone isn't enough to intimidate potential hunters, it has the ability to dive from the sky to the ground with such force that it inflicts damage to anyone unfortunate enough to be below it, or carry its momentum back into a rapid uplift.


The idea of pacifying such a beast is nothing to scoff at. Its highly independent nature and disinterest with interacting with humans combined with its power and strength make the Griffin a challenge to domesticate. However, there have been those who are fearless enough to attempt and succeed at this miraculous feat. Once tamed, riding atop a Griffin along with a tribemate passenger, dashing through the air at high speed, is a prize in and of itself.
