Purchase a Shining Lightning Essence material to evolve swift tempest with 30K Honor Points from an Honor Point Collector, and then summon your Stormdarter without any equipment in front of the Honor Point Collector. Last, chat with collector to make Stormdarter become a Thunder Dash, with new abilities and a new appearance, even stronger than before.

Thunder Dash VS Black Arrow
The Thunder Dash is faster than the Black Arrow which obtained by leveling a Bloodstock from Mirage island to level 50, and buying a 500 ArcheAge Gold item to upgrade it into the “Black Arrow”. Base speed for base speed, Thunder Dash is faster. All skills used, Thunder Dash is still faster, and it also gets a much longer speed boost than the Black Arrow does.
If you want to say the lance skill of Black Arrow can faster than Thunder Dash, personal do not think so, because you can not use the lance skill and Breakthrough at the same time.The lance skill also need you have a target which it pulls you to, so its usage for speed is less than situational. It also consumes special lances which you need to use Gilda Star to make.
Black Arrow has a skill which provides temporary immunity to stuns, knockdowns, and ranged attacks, but it’s broken and hardly ever works right, so that is useless. So the Thunder Dash is better in every way except for animal type. Below is the Thunder Dash mount.
