    Default Hellbug mount

    Hi all,
    I have a small question about the hellbug mount. I very much like the look of these mounts. Unfortunantly, i'm only level 26. My question is: do these hellbug mounts drop from lower level fire rifts too? And if so, do they drop from mobs in these rifts or is it just a small chance in the reward at the end of a rift (in the UI loot option).

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, they'll drop from any level Invasive Species Fire Rift, i used go around Silverwood opening Hellbug rifts for new players and have seen them drop from level 8 Rifts

    The chance for them to drop only happens in the bonus stages, ie stages 4 with the cows and stage 5 with the last boss so make sure you complete all stages.

    Also make sure the mobs are green to you, don't try closing, say, a lvl 10 hellbug rift when you're level 26, mentor down within seven levels to make sure the mobs are green at least.

    Don't mean to post in a month old thread. I am just getting able to play Rift again. Are these mounts still obtainable? Saw one today and now I want one!

    Yes they are 3 mounts and 3 pets
    The mount are red , purple and green. Don't sure about the pet.
    They vary in rarity the red is the easier to get while the green is the rarest
