Mastering the Skies

Dragonriding Gameplay

Special Moves

As you grow in skill, you and your Drake will master new maneuvers. Fight against exhaustion and the pull of the earth, and soar above the Dragon Isles.

Talented Rider

Continue to improve your Dragonriding skill by hunting down ancient glyphs and advancing your new Dragonriding skill tree.

More Customization

As you explore and conquer additional challenges all over the Dragon Isles, you will unlock even more customization options for your  Dragon Isles Drakes.

The Dragon Isles

New Continent

The Dragon Isles are the ancestral home of the dragonflights of Azeroth. When the world was broke apart in the Great Sundering, magic drained away and the land went dormant. As the Dragon Isles awaken, so too do old feuds and long-dormant threats.

The Waking Shores

On invitation by Alexstrasza, heroes of the Horde and Alliance arrive to aid the red dragonflight in this vibrant, roiling land. Here, Wrathion will call upon Azeroth's champions to help him reclaim the black dragonflight's citadel from enemy hands.

Ohn’ahran Plains

These verdant grasslands are home to the mighty Maruuk centaur tribes, who long ago forged a bond with the green dragonflight. But since the death of Ysera, the green dragons face an uncertain future.

The Azure Span

Holding the magical archives of the blue dragonflight, the Azure Span stretches from coastal tuskarr villages through a sprawling forest tundra, all the way to looming spires of ice and snow. Tribes of gnolls and furbolgs call these ancient lands home.

Thaldraszus

The seat of power for the Aspects and their flights, Thaldraszus stands as the shining beacon of the dragons' kingdom. It is also here that the bronze dragonflight watches over the timeways, ensuring both the past and future of Azeroth remains secure.

Forbidden Reach

Located off the coast of the Dragon Isles, the Forbidden Reach was fashioned by Neltharion the Earth-Warder to serve as a training ground for his ultimate soldiers, the dracthyr. But in the aftermath of a terrible battle, the island has lain dormant and abandoned for ages--until the return of an ancient enemy causes the dracthyr to stir.

Ride or Dive

Dragonriding Overview

Dive down and gain momentum as you rapidly descend, then unfurl your drake's wings and use your dragonriding skills to stay afloat. Take in your surroundings as you look for the perfect landing spot—or surprise your foes with death from above!
