A Swift Spectral Gryphon is actually a spell that gets invoked in certain areas of Northrend when non-night elves die there or enter as a ghost. It puts you on a swift spectral gryphon mount that can fly in the area where it is invoked. As soon as you leave the active area, you will be dismounted.

You get the following buff while mounted on the swift spectral gryphon:

Ability mount gryphon 01
  • Swift Spectral Gryphon
  • Increases flight speed by 280%.

Areas where this spell is active:


  • Night elf players, unless under a buff that turns them into another race, simply become flying wisps.
  • When you die in a zone where this spell is active, you respawn as a ghost already mounted on spectral gryphons.
  • If you go into those zones as a ghost, you will suddenly find yourself on a spectral gryphon.
  • They also appear as mounts for the Forgotten Captains on the Forgotten Shore in Dragonblight.
