As I’m slowing approaching the 300 mount achievement “Lord of the Reins” I thought it was about time I looked at some of the more easily attainable mounts introduced in Legion. Today I’m chasing the Fathom Dweller, a world quest reward available from the world quest, “DANGER: Kosumoth the Hungering”. In order to complete the quest, you first need to unlock it. As well as the squid looking mount, theFathom Dweller the quest can also reward a tentacle pet, the Hungering Claw. The quest is on a two week rotation, and based on the comments on wowhead, there’s no guarentee you’ll get either the pet or mount first time, you may just get gold.
So, while the world quest itself is simple enough to complete, the process for unlocking the quest is a little time consuming, and involves a decent amount of exploration.
The whole thing kicks off with Drak’thul, a lone orc, on the south west coast of the Broken Shore. From there you begin a tour of caves across the Broken Isles.
