Same effect as the Riding Crop.
Anyone know if this stacks with Riding Crop?
This trinket is a reward from the Dragonmaw Race quests which, towards the end, aren't easy at all even with a riding crop, without I'm guessing it's hardly possible (admitedly I haven't tried). So each player will most likely still need to acquire their riding crop before being able to get their Skybreaker Whip anyway, so I don't see how this will have any impact for LWers at all... Omiting the odd lucky exceptions...
Any dufus can buy a riding crop. You gotta earn the whip! =P
I have tried this quests a few times so far, with a Riding Crop equipped, and found out I was just as fast as Skyshatter. I thought he might attune his speed to mine but reading previous comments I think he's at 290% standard.
And it really is a bloody shame these trinkets don't stack. I honestly don't feel like trying harder now I know it doesn't.. if it's only for some rep and gold then why botter getting that trinket if it doesn't improve anything.. Blizz might want to change this reward or make it stack cause this is dull.
Was thinking they'd give people an opportunity to be as fast as pala's, guess not.
To get back to the flight: it really helps if you know how he's flying, I always stay ahead of him, slightly attuning hight etc. The bombs can't reach you if you're in front of him and a bit higher as well.
I'm willing to bet they threw this in there in case a 70 decided not to get a crop (which is entirely possible, though unlikely). Without the reward, you couldn't complete the end race.
It would be nice if this was a quest-only item that despawned after you won and would only show up if you didn't have a Riding Crop.
Doesnt stack with crusader aura.
I vendored my Ridig Crop then I get this one. Riding crop is just crafted trinket but this show that you are a bit good in flying. =)
I completed the trials without having a Riding Crop so this was quite nice. The last flight took a few tries as it's pretty tough to keep up with him, but doable after some practise. Also I didn't fly ahead of him, just cutting the corners and following him closely (but not too close) worked fine for me.
Should probably just group with a Paladin for this quest. =P
Before people start cluttering this with the standard mount speed is multiplied comment, read this.
Mount Speeds are additive and no matter what WoWWiki said, the devs have clearly stated on the official forums that it is not multiplied. If you have an epic flying mount with a crop, you fly at 390% speed not 418%. Check the WoW Forums or the official site in the flying mount section. Taken from the official site, "When using the riding crop, the epic flying mount is only 10% slower than the flying mount taxis!" Also, as stated, the taxi's move at 400%, so it is clear and proven that it is additive and not multiplied.
You can also go here.
The whip should be 12%. I mean honestly, riding crops are ridiculously easy to make. Anyone who wanted one could get it without much hassle.
does it stack with riding crop? or does the unique-equipped stat not let you use both?
so is this tricket stack with Riding Chop or not?
Team up a paladin with Mount Aura 20% speed.
Just an idea, I actually never try it yet.
This quest comes down to 2 things. Reputation with Netherwing and some pocket money.
If you never had a riding crop or carrot on a stick, I can't imagine that number being higher than average, then this quest is for you. A ton of patience, a new keyboard or two and you’re fine.
For those of us who: Have little patience, hate bugged quests, own riding crops, and don't care if we get Netherwing rep as quickly as possible, you shouldn't loose too much sleep over this quest.
I like many others before me, went nearly insane trying to finish this quest line. The races before Mulverik and SB were fun and kept me entertained quite a bit. The last two, I could have done with out. Mulv's race gives you 500 rep (the equiv of two eggs) and the Skybreaker race is 1000 rep and a riding crop. In the time and patience it took to finish these I could have just farmed eggs or completed other dailies. 1500 rep for a lot of time and lost patience seems not all that worth the effort. Don't get me wrong, I did finish both races, but looking back, I would not recommend these quests to the short tempered. I would wait until Blizz got enough tickets to fix it because as it is, it's bad. Just to clarify, 1k rep is 2 bars at honored. 2 as in dos.
So in closing, if your looking for a quick Netherwing rep gring-- go for it, but make sure the wife and kids are away from your computer. If your casually building Netherwing rep and really don't care about getting your mount asap, skip these or try them sparingly.
The quest reward-- does not stack with other speed increasing stuff
The money is pocket change considering your investment into riding skill
The rep can be made up elsewhere or at most, will tack on a day or two more before you get your mount.
Perhaps this is useless once you have riding crop, but I'd keep it for the sentimental value. Every time I would look at it, I'd remember how, against all odds, I defeated the Captain of Netherwing.
Looks like this, along with the other mount trinkets, are getting a huge buff & nerf all rolled into one ball of "Wait... what?" in 2.4.2
Nope, they aren't going faster.
Two words: MOUNT. ENCHANTS.
Tooltip for the Skybreaker Whip: "Permanently enchant a mount to increase its mounted speed by 10%. You may only enchant mounts in your own inventory, and enchanting your mount will cause it to become soulbound. Single use."
Unconfirmed changes according to
, might not make it into Live or even the PTR, but I'm still posting here in any case.
I have been using Ring Crop for a long time and I'm also using boots with Mithril Spurs but never checked if they stacked. Do they help raise mount speed combined?
asks me why I have this when I'm a Blood Elf and not an Orc.
Ok isnt this faster than Crusader Aura(CA)while using and epic flying mount?
CA is 20% mounted speed so...
CA is 280+20%=300 right?
and the Skybreaker Whip(SW) 10% Mount so...
SW would be 280+(280x.1)=308% (.1 is 10%)
So really a riding crop and the whip are better while using a epic flying mount....
I personally propose we start a petition with Blizzard...stacking the crop and the whip is pushing it, with the speed increase and conceptually (having a beating stick and a whip and them both making the animal faster individually does not equal out to 0, lol) but frankly I believe that should you actually go through the trouble of completeing this heinous chain the whip should stack with the carrot and the spurs...Not OP movement increase, but still practically rewarding.
As of WotLK, this and all other riding trinkets (
Carrot On a Stick
) will have a "Use:" ability that allows them to be permanently applied to a mount (thus you can have one trinket or get one per mount).
Read the blue post at
Himalountain / Miskaton
Okay, so. The max mount speed increasement you can get
is 10%, right?
So my question is, does that stack with the Hunter Talent
edit: Before someone mentions, I did read the "This effect does not stack..." part. Just that I've had people saying it stacks and some saying it doesn't and wanted to be sure.
In the current Wrath of the Lich King Beta build
, the Skybreaker Whip no longer works for players above level 70.
Equip: Increases mount speed by 10%. Does not work for players above level 70.
point in this item? Considering all the enemy's on Netherwing Ledge are pretty much all around 70 and above, you would be level 70 and above on completing this quest.
Also considering the difficulty of the quest, this item is pretty much a slap in the face.
I just noticed this thing no longer works! OMG WTF this thing was a royal pain in the A S S to get... why is it no longer functional Blizzard... why? It's one of the few things in game that took perseverance to get ahold of... /sigh
Is there anything that works to speed up your mount after 70? Man, I worked my butt off to get this and now its useless. Appreciate it Blizzard. :(
maybe its time to make it 50% useless after 70? cuz its kinda......2-3 hours on use thing xDD
I don't get why its a level 70 cap...what is the difference between a 70 with a 280% mount and an 80 with a 280% mount? Illogical logic is illogical.
Blizzard, in my opinion, should make it to where you can whip your mount since it is a
. It'd be hilarious. In compensation, they could remove the speed increase since usually you'd be above 70 when you get this, but maybe not. Still be hilarious to see someone whip their mount.
They should make this a BOA item; complete the quest, mail it to your L20 character with their little +60% riding and let them go a little faster. Still disabled at L70 anyway.
I would like to try and confirm some facts of this whip as they exist after 4.0.1.
I have a twink account, TBC only, so I am not an XP off 70. My hard cap is 70.
I recently got this item but do not see a flight/ground speed increase with it equipped in tool tips. I've tried racing various players with identical flying/riding and I'm always faster yet I'm also the same speed on tool tips whether it's equipped or in my bags.
I'm wondering if you actually need to equip it to get the bonus or just have it on you anymore or if the bonus just doesn't exist.
Wow, why is there a level 70 cap for this item? You can't even get the quest until you are 70, but I didn't start these netherwing quests until I was 72 but while trying to get to exalted I'm sure most people at least reached 71 by this point... and most people do rep quests at 80 anyway so this is the most irrelevant, yet annoying to get quest line I have ever encountered in the game. Thanks Blizzard.
This trinket doesn't work if you are in a guild over level 3. The effect doesn't stack with the Mount Up guild perk (increase mount speed by 10%)
Nowadays, while scanning the item in the quest itself, it says .. requires level 80.
