Introducing the final four races in Mario Kart 8! Including the N64 Rainbow Road which has caused much debate, do you love it or hate it? Watch now to find out!
In the Lightning Cup we have: Tick-Tock Clock (DS); Piranha Plant Pipeway (3DS); Grumble Volcano (Wii); Rainbow Road (N64). This cup is a bit upsetting to me as Rainbow Road for the Nintendo 64 has to be my most favourite race in the Mario Kart series. Unfortunately they’ve shrunk it so the amount of time it takes to complete is less than one original lap of it, what a pity!
What do you think of the updated Rainbow Road? Are you disappointed like me? Let me know in the comments!

To start the Chorrol Recommendation (also known as Fingers of the Mountain) we must first travel to the Chorrol Mages Guild and speak to the leader: Teekeeus. Apart from being a little grumpy he has a very simple task for us; find Earana (an ex-mage) that is wondering around town. She’s pretty easy to spot and will either be directly outside the Mages Guild or in the Inn nearby (The Grey Mare). If you prefer a video walkthrough please consult the two videos below.
It seems however that she also wants a favour (in return for a pretty amazing reward); we need to find a special book for her nearby. If you go back to Teekeeus and tell him this he will expressively order you to give him the book instead – he doesn’t even explain what’s so special about it!
Either way we’re stuck with getting the book so we need to travel to the nearby Cloud Top and take the book for ourselves. From here we have two options: give the book to Earana; or give the book to Teekeeus. If you plan on doing the whole quest then it really doesn’t matter which option you choose first (as you’ll be doing the other one later). For this guide I’ll follow what I did in my video walkthrough and give the book to Earana first.
Once having the book she’ll let you know that she needs a whole 24 hours to decipher its message, so keep busy for a day and when you return to her she’ll give you a note. To get this powerful new spell we first require a Welkynd Stone. If you’ve played around a bit you may already have one, however if you don’t we need to access the nearest Ayleid ruin: Lipsand Tarn – the location of which is shown in the part 2 video. The best part about this particular ruin is that you don’t even need to fight any vampires inside it, simply run in, grab a stone and run out!
Travel back to Cloud Top, activate the Welkynd Stone and cast a shock spell (touch or ranged) at the pillar. You may need to find a magical resistance spell if you have low health or are casting a powerful shock spell at the pillar. I, myself, was a Breton, so I already had magical resistance due to my race – therefore I easily survived the shock attack. Congratulations! You’ve now obtained the powerful “Fingers of the Mountain” spell which is a shock area ranged spell. This is levelled to your particular progression throughout the game so the spell is best obtained in the early levels.
What about our Chorrol Recommendation I hear you ask? Well if you return to Teekeeus he won’t be very pleased! We have to steal the book back from Earana and give it to him. This is simply done as her room in The Grey Mare isn’t even locked! Find the book in her chest and return it to Teekeeus and all is forgiven, along with the writing of your recommendation!
If you decided to give the book to Teekeeus first you can steal it from a chest in his room and complete this quest the other way around!
