How to Get Roller Beetle Support in Guild Wars 2
By playing through Guild Wars 2: The Way of Fire, you will unlock four mounts throughout the story. These mounts will help you move quickly through the world and explore hard-to-reach places. In addition to these four mounts, you will be able to unlock the Roller Beetle.
The Roller Beetle was first introduced in living world season 4, and includes four steps to complete to unlock it completely. It can be hard to know where to start when unlocking this quick mount, so we’re here to help. In this guide, you can consult a Complete walkthrough on how to unlock the Roller Beetle.
Play Through Season 4
The first step you need to do to unlock the Roller Beetle stand is to play through the story. This will unlock the first achievement associated with the Roller Beetle, titled High Roller.
To do this you must Complete the Forarmed is Forewarned story instance in the Domain of Kourna. This is a long instance involving scavenging a fortress alongside your allies.
When this story instance is completed, you will be at the Allied encampment in the domain of Kourna, and can start the journey to get a roller beetle.
From the allied encampment waypoint, head north until you come to a small area of tents. Turn left and Go up some stairs until you come to another covered area with Gorrik, Taimi, and Blish.
Now you just need to talk to Gorrick to begin the next step in this process.
The second step to get a Roller Beetle is to complete the Success of Beetle Juice. Gorrik will ask you to collect 10 “medicine” for Petey, a beetle he is standing next to.
Nine of these juices will be scattered around the map, and Gorrik will give you the tenth once all the others have been collected.
Juices are in sets of three all over the map, so below you can check out the three main locations for needed juices. These items will be in caches but won’t be hidden, so you should be able to find them fairly quickly.
The first three bottles can be found around Kodonur’s Crossing. To get here, Head north from the Apizmic Grounds waypoint.
|1||Bubbling liquid bottle without label|
|3||Fully Legal Performance Enhancement Serum|
The next three bottles can be found around Arkjok farmland. You can get here by heading north from the allied encampment waypoint.
|4||Flask of churning liquid|
|5||210 Rotgut Proof|
|6||Calcified Megalodon Fin|
The last three bottles can be found in the Bitterfly Bayou. To get here, just teleport to the Waypoint Apizmic Grounds.
|7||black smoke bottle|
|8||lightning in a bottle|
|9||Untested Speed Serum|
After collecting all the juice bottles, Return to Gorrik and he will reward you with the tenth bottle. Now you will have to start collecting again for the third part of your Roller Beetle journey.
Domain of Kourna
The Beetle Saddle requires you to collect nine items, but you’ll only need to search for seven. Once you bring back these seven items, you will be rewarded with the final two.
Unlike the previous collection, you now search for items that can spawn throughout Tyria. Below, you can check out all seven elements, along with some tips on how to get each one.
|Item needed||where to find it||Useful tips|
|Notes on the survey beetle||Dropped by Awakened Investigation in the Domain of Kourna||
|Survey Power Schemes||Hack Inquest gear on the second floor of the Pogahn Bluffs Proving Ground||
|Seal of the Shadow Maker||Complete any bounty in the Domain of Kourna||
|steam power coupling||Dropped by Steam Creatures||
|Plague Spacers||Dropped by the Survey Golem||
|Spark of Anomaly||Fallen from a legendary ley line anomaly||
|Inverter Mk II||Dropped from Inquest Golem Mark II||
After collecting these seven items, return to the allied encampment and talk to Blish. Here he will give you the finished saddle. Now, talk to Gorrick to complete this achievement.
Now you’re finally on the final step to getting your very own Roller Beetle mount! For the Beetle Feed achievement, you will need to complete a collection of eight objects; of the eight, you will only need to find seven.
Below you can check out the seven necessary elements.
|Item needed||where to find it||Useful tips|
|Living Plague Scarab||Complete the event “Trampling beetles with your mount to contain the outbreak”||
|Plague Scarab Egg||Dropped by Plague Experiments||
|Junundu Ichor||Dropped by Junundu Wurms||
|Hearty Beetle Slime||Dropped by the Alpha Beetle in the Silverwastes||
|Desert Luciferin||Purchase From Milin to Domaine de Kourna||
|Icy Wurm Goo||Dropped by cave worms||

With all these elements put together, return to the allied encampment and interact with Petey the Roller Beetle. Doing this will complete Beetle Feed and be rewarded with your Roller Beetle mount!
