judging from the icon, my guess is that it's gonna be the same model as
Coming from someone who does not like to farm (even dailies are like on that line) or deal with finding eggs all day for the Netherwing faction, this is a godsend. I had always wanted a red or black dragon, something to kind of complement my warlock. And, if wrath is anything like BC, we are gonna hit honored just doing some quests, and exalted should be easy with that new system that let's you be a "champion" of a faction, thus gaining more rep when running instances.
Also, seeing as how heroic loot is actually worth getting, rep should be no problem and people will finally use heroics like they were meant to be used: a stepping stone to raiding.
this is evidence that flying mounts will be usable in northrend, although maybe that was announced and i just never knew :O
Actually, a drake is not a fully grown dragon, but it is the most mature form there is before dragon.
I recently got the Albino Drake (it was too easy being exalted with all 5 Horde factions + all BC factions, namely Mag'har, Skyguard and Netherwing), and whilst I hated the skin (it's just butt ugly), I loved the model. I always liked the colour of the netherdrakes, but they do look like dragon-fish hybrids, when a lot of WoW players are just interested in the dragon part. ^_^
So having a sexy red version available has put me over the moon. It's like getting a decent car with a crappy paint job, and then getting it repainted into a sexy sleek red. And you know what they say... red dragons fly faster.
they should make this mount go 281% speed just so you can say it goes faster because it's red
Got this mount in no time, just did some group quests to get me to friendly status, bought my tabard (
and farmed heroics for about three days, after that i got my drake. xD
really easy with the new blizzard tabard implementation.
I just got my drake (and bracers) last night and I must say it really wasn't that hard. Between the daily in Dragonblight, and the two in the Coldarra on top of running heroics with the tabard on....I'd say it took me about a week. This isn't constant grinding mind you, it's occasionally playing for about 3-4 hours a night about 3-5 times a week. So if you are looking at the drake and thinking it's too hard for you, just do the dailies when you can and if it takes you a while, trust me, it's very worth it :).
Just as a side note, has anyone else noticed that the red drake is larger than the bronze one? ;D
Not as noisy as the nether drake (it doesn't thunder around when on the ground or make the loud, booming flapping noise when flying), hence I like this a lot more.
Was a nice bonus to go with my Sandals =)
i got my drake a couple weeks ago and i love it it is th first drake ive ever had uget it from bieng exalted with the wyrmrest accord.. for 1600g.. not that bad of a deal. imo
Realistically, it's about 1900 to 2300 per heroic, because most of the time your group isn't going to pull every group in every instance.
But on the bright side, you can knock out heroics like Stratholme, Utgarde Keep, Gundrak and Violet hold in 25-30 minutes each. If you've got a good group of friends or guildies who like to run heroics, you can do four quick clears and the dailies in about 2 to 3 hours, netting you about 9k rep a day.
Also, in response to a comment below about this model being "outdated": It's the same model as the Black, Bronze and Twilight Drakes, and people are salivating over those. Video game "prestige" aside, the drake mounts DO look great, especially if you're upgrading aesthetically from your basic epic windrider or gryphon. The landing animation can be choppy at times, but there's nothing at all wrong with the flight animation. I bought my Red Drake a few days ago and I'm loving it.
Actually, a drake is not a fully grown dragon, but it is the most mature form there is before dragon.
However, there is a form beyond dragon. A drake becomes a dragon at approx. 100 years of age. A dragon becomes a wyrm at approx. 500 years of age.
Some of the most famous non-aspect dragons (Nefarian, Sintharia, Kalecgos (possibly), Arcanigos, and all of the aspects before their teaparty with the Titans) were Wyrms.
the bronze dragonflight aspect is smaller than it's other counter parts, which is why all the bronze drakes are smaller than every other color:) makes sense yeah?
I like the looks of these, but the best looking ones are
imo. The link i of the red one, since this is red, but you get the picture:) anyways, a matter of taste really, I just think proto-drakes look meaner:)
For those who havent noticed, since patch v3.0.8 these mounts including the other mounts with the same model seem to be gliding when flying and soaring. They also seem to have changed the animation when you are on the ground and turning the mount around - it will lift his/her wings. Awesome details if you ask me. I was always wondering why the CoT taxi mount did it and not my mount with the exact same model.
I could add that all drakes in the game appear to flap backwards... Rep is easy to get with tabbard and quests. I have the rep for it just not the gold :-/
Wish all reps required a tabbard and heroic runs.. be awesome.
Lmao , that was funny how bout just add... a gnome death knite with gimp gear and a pink tabard :P
JEEZ look at the 3D model and look at the saddle...its like they cut a chunk out of the dragon and glued a saddle to it
There are 3 daily solo quests to get Wyrmrest Accord reputation:
Drake Hunt - lvl 71 - 250 rep
Defending Wyrmrest Temple - lvl 74 - 250 rep
Aces High! - lvl 80 - 250 rep
nearly all of the drake mounts - ekcept for proto - looks like Michael Jackson when they walk backwords...
and there is one dragon in particular i would like to mount:
pfah...who wants a dragon everybody in dragonblight has?
my mount when i had a horde tankadin:
BEST flying mount ever...fastest when riding with crusader aura on.
It's silly to compare the red proto drake to the red drake. People would go for the red proto over the red regular drake for different reasons. They're both red, but the similarities end there.
The red proto is a different model, with different animations and a different /mountspecial. It is also much harder to obtain, and therefore having one is much more of a status symbol than the regular drake.
Hmm...Has no one else noticed this? They are selling their own kids into slavery for a measly 2000g, to every bloke who helps them out a little!
: Right, that's the pipe sorted...Anything else?
: Congratz! You're now liked by me! Would you like to buy one of my children to ride?
beleive me, we all feel ur pain, but not ur beleifs about the other mounts, the bronze one kicks ass, lol
now i dont have this mount yet, but i am very eager to get it, and i am close to exalted now
the best way to get exalted with anyone is to simply do the following:
-where the tabard in lvl 80 instances
-kill any monsters u see that will get u even the slightest bit of rep with the faction
u do all of this, and u will be in dalaran riding ur shiny red drake in no time :)
and to vorph,
if i could have this thing as a companion, i would seriosly just get that and forget about the mount completely :)
oh, and one more thing, to barda24,
every mount does the moonwalk, including ground mounts except for the cenarion war hippogryph because it doesnt walk at all, lol
Would also like to add this is one of the few mounts (that I have at least) that shares a global cooldown with other spells.
In other words, if you try to create a macro to autocast Crusader Aura (as I do in my random mount macro) before actually mounting, it won't work with this mount... :\ It will just proceed to tell you that spell is not ready yet after casting Crusader Aura. So while not triggering a GCD on it's own, it will be on the GCD if one casts their Crusader Aura. Very frustrating as I enjoy the looks of my Red Drake over my Bronze...
EDIT: Looks like my macro won't work with any mounts soon enough :\
Official Blizzard response to this issue I found.
Just wanted to say that as of 3.1, the leaning slightly to the left/animation twitch when riding the regular drakes seems to have been fixed.
It costs 2000g at neutral and you cant buy the drake before you hit exalted so it costs 1600g for you.
Wow really gonna fit for my warrior, as red drakes is protectors of life, and i save quite a few "lives" as a tank :P
Not sure if anyone has noticed, but if you're on the ground while mounted and type "/mountspecial", the drake will do a cool roaring animation and raise his wings.
Not sure if I'm imagining this but as of the current patch it looks like there was a second ground animation fix to this mount too (the first being when they lifted its head). The wings seem more "floppy" and elastic as it moves, and its backside moves back and forth a bit. It's subtle, but the change is very nice and makes the dated drake model look much more lifelike.
I don't see why not he doesn't let you ride him he has to keep in shape. Plus he's gotta have something to do on his free time. He also get's to meet all your other flying epic mounts. How fun for him :D
I don't find it that good looking.
And before anyone assumes it, I had bought it on a previous character. On the one I'm playing now though, I don't plan to.
The main reason is the bulky animation and the very thick (solid) look of the animal.
The Outlands ones were better (but too bored to grind solely for vanity items).

i have a question, someone told me that you can get four mounts from the wrymrest accord. Is that true?
Just to make sure i didnt get my epic flying mount yet so how much in total gold i would have to spend to get a red dragon
Got mines last night. :D not hard to farm rep just do alot of heriocs with tabard
So nice of Alexstaza to lend us the assistance of one of her sons/daughters! :3
I think it would be cool if it talked to you every now and then.
Somehow I get the feeling the Red Dragonflight isn't all it appears to be on the outside.
Ceri: Master, we just sold another one! Ill put the 1600 with Tora like usual. By the way, hows the production coming along?
Alex: *mmm more* yeah its going well, just put the extra *unhn!* money with the majordomo, im almost done here anyway.
Ceri: Errm, ok then... * runs away scarred*
Ceri: Ok Toristrasza, here's the money. Mom's working really hard to repair the Temple. Oh, and where is that last shipment I gave you?
Tora: Ermm, *bead of sweat* I lost it. Yeah, that's what happened.
And what happens to the money? Torastrasza gos and gets himself a big mountain of dragon cocaine and some dragon hookers -_-
ok aside from that little rant story about selling their own, Im grinding with these guys just so I can buy one to show my support. I think I might also pay another 200g for Torastrasza to get an intervention.
Got exalted with Wyrmrest today. This mount looks awesome, but I'm not sure if it's 1600g awesome.
wich drake is under 2k and awsome? im doubting if im gonna take this one or ebon DK gryhon...help xD
This will be my next acquisition since I just got myself
the other day.
i personally like proto-drakes to drakes. they seem to be a different, but not as much as the netherdrakes or anything. dont get me wrong id have one of these if i had the money but im happy with my blue proto-drake :D
This drake complements my Turen Druid very nicely
Is there's a purple drake? hehe Put all the drakes together and u have a rainbow
I love the drakes.
Probably my only complaint is:
When I'm herbing and doing my "beep beep beep" backup on the ground because I overshot a node, that stupid jump of the whole screen happens on occasion.
Then I immediately panic. (Storm Giant/Fel Reaver/OMGSOMETHINGHUGEANDSTOMPY thoughts) Then I remember it's my drake being glitchy. And I feel silly.
I ended up with a blue drake before this one. I wasn't expecting that. Cannot wait to be exalted so I can buy this...then ONWARD to 8K and the hodir grand mammoth! :D
they should have an emerald drake
Maybe its because its red, but I ride this thing over all my other mounts all the time, and i have 82 mounts including Time-Lost. On my paladin with Crusader Aura it really is a sight to behold.
i went and checked it out at wyrmest temple and the cost is now only 1900g instead of 2000g + 100g for me:)
1600g for me.
Maybe it works more like this: "Donate 1600 gold to the cause of Wyrmrest Accord and get a Red Drake!".
Also, if they are teenagers and they could talk it would get weird: "Let me listen to heavy metal or I'll let you fall."
Anyways, this mount is awesome. I found the Bronze Drake in CoS (I didn't even know there was a boss there that dropped a mount), but I'm still saving up to get this one.
For 1600 G, this should be a 310% mount...
It's worth noting that the 3 daily quests for wyrmrest now give 325 reputation instead of 250, making it a little faster for people relying soley on daily quests for reputation.
i grinded rep for this mount with only the tabard and it only took me like 3 weeks doing a heroic or 2 every day and never even looking at the quests and it was fun but long. (this was b4 the random dungeon finder was implemented so it took like an hour to find a group unless you had a huge guild) i still don't have the mount yet cuz i did this b4 i had max riding skill and i still needed about all the gold from it.
it makes sense to have guldans set on while riding this
Reached level 80, had the tabard and was just above friendly. 17 points from exalted after running about 10 heroics and a couple of normal ICC five mans. Went by much quicker than I was expecting.
I got this in 5 minutes. My advice:
Get to a high level and earn a lot of justice points. 140 from the random daily and around 240 for clearing a regular 85 dungeon, it'll be easy. All you have to do is go to Dalaran and buy the commendation badge for Wyrmrest over and over. They're 16 justice points a piece and they give you 500 something. I didn't even bother with the tabard or dailies.
The money may be grind, but if you're doing well with your professions on the auction house, you can manage easily.

Just got mine today
You can buy the rep with about 1k justice points
with the gold i got 900 and a great friend said have 700 and you daont have to pay back if you dont want to
i will pay him back though because thats alot to give away at level 75
RED IS THE BEST AND THE FASTEST!
Before I go crazy trying to rep up for this drake, I've read that you can only use this mount in outland and Northren. Is this true? Kalimdor, SW, etc... you cannot mount it in these areas?
Got this at level 70 in just 16 hours! Here is how:
Do PvP and earn Honor Points
Convert Honor Points to Justice Points
Buy Reputation in Dalaran for Justice Points
Buy the Mount
Got this in one day, very quickly, nice mount and not many people have it, most people have the bronze drake :)
Just bought this tonight. Went with the Wyrmrest Commendation Badge way, spent some JP to buy 70 or so Badges.
Got exalted straight from neutral, cost 1400g for the Drake.
At exalted with Bartering, this costs 1400g.
The Mount Cost's 1600Gold If Your Exalted And The Best And Easyest Way To Farm The Rep in 4.3.2 Is To Just Buy lots of Wyrmrest Accord Commendation Tokens What Cost 16 Justice Points From The Vendor/Vendors in Icecrown Argent Tournement Place And Dalaran Thank You For Reading And Have a Nice Day !
Zogbog-Twisting Nether Eu !
I don't know when this was last updated, but I went from Neutral to Exalted in a single day. Just make sure you have around 2k Justice Points and head on over to the Argent Tournament grounds. If you're Alliance, speak to the NPC who offers the Commendations for each faction. I paid 16JP per commendation. So.... roughly 70 commendations and volia! Exalted.
Also, the drake only cost me 1400g after the faction discount.
It looks pretty snazzy with my warlock!
We have at least one drake mount from four out of the five dragonflights (
) yet after three expansions (soon to be four) we
still don't have even
green drake mount!
I mean, sure we have
but it's a
-drake, not a regular drake. I want my green drake mount!
I hate having to grind rep and dungeons get boring....This was perfect for me because of my love of battlegrounds. Simply save up 1,300 Jp and go to
for Ally or
for horde and buy Wyrmrest commendation badges to get to exalted with 7 Jp left over. Now about that money.....
First off, the
Now, to get the
fast and easy
rep grinding, you can trade in
16x Justice Points
the Legacy Justice Quartermaster in the
auction house in
. It says it gives you
rep but I was getting
(or close to that) per
16 Justice Points
and trade in
375x Honor Points
in exchange for
250x Justice Points
the Honor Trade Goods guy in
Hey guys , there's an easy way to get exalted with Wyrmrest. There are badges you can buy in Dalaran to get your reputation up. the badge's picture is a red backround with a blakish dragon picture. it cost 16 justice points for each one. you can buy as many as u need. u just need to be able to farm justice point like crazy. also if u run out out of justice points, you can trade in 375 honor points to get 250 justice points. I became exalted with Wyrmrest in two days tops. :) and once you become exalted with them the red drake cost 1400g. so be prepared. one more thing , If you want to take your time with it, you can just buy the tabard for Wyrmrest. Have fun! :) :) :) :) THIS IS IF YOU ARE HORDE.
As a human it took exactly 64 Wyrmrest Commendation Badges (1024 Justice points) to reach exalted, for any other race it will take exactly 70 of them (1120 Justice points) Cielstrasza <Wyrmrest Accord Quartermaster> (seller) is at Wyrmrest temple in Dragonblight.
I ran into this problem also "It has been confirmed that the NPC is hidden under another NPC. Though I have pictures that show this is NOT always true. Seems strange, but it did actually happen where she was hidden, then visible, then hidden again."-KynlasDK. Yes, she still sells
If you are trying to obtain this on an alt, or character you made post-Cataclysm, and you don't feel like grinding the Wyrmrest quests you can buy
with justice points to reach the required exalted reputation.
It will cost you 1,293 Justice points to go from neutral to exalted, not taking in to account human racial reputation bonuses.
The easiest way to do this (for me) at level 85, was through JP (Justice Points). By the time I hit level 85 (the moment I hit level 85) from random Cataclysm dungeons, and random WotLK dungeons, I had enough JP accumulated to:
a) Hearth to Dalaran
b) Speak to Magistrix Vesara, a Legacy Justice Quartermaster
c) Go to Page 2 of items she sells
d) Buy around 83 Wyrmest Accord Commendation Badges ( I had around 1343 JP, give or take a few)
Each badge rewards 520 reputation, a pretty easy way to level reputation. I used each badge, and had around 5-10 left over, AFTER I was exalted. Then, I went and purchased my mount.
For those looking to improve Sons of Hodir reputation, which provides mammoths, commendation badges for that faction are available.
More badges for the Ebon Blade, Argent Dawn, and Kirin Tor, are present, and all badges are 16 JP per badge, each badge reward 520 reputation!
Youtube descibes everything you need to know to get the Red Drake:
Go to Youtube, search for :
Get Red Drake the lazy way
.. and the channel to Bananabombprods will appear, and there you go! :)
If you have lots of Justice Points ( like over 1000) then you have enough and can make your self the dragon is no-time. ( maybe in 30 min or less)
Creds for the guy that made the video! :)
Very easy to get now, if your guild got the rep bonus you'll gain 572 rep per badge
572*20 = 11440 so basically you'll need around 80 in order to get Exalted. Used 60 and are atm at revered 13,820/21,000.
Good luck with the mount :)
To get this mount you need to be Exalted with the The Wyrmrest Accord faction. Easiest way to do that is to buy
Each. They are sold from Legacy Justice Quartermasters in Icecrown and Dalaran.
To get from Neutral to Exalted you need about 81 Badges/1296 Justice Points. But if you have the
Guild buff, only 74 Badges/1184 Justice Points is needed.
I'm shocked that nobody has commented on this yet. The discription
"You should never listen to minstrels' fancies. A dragon would never hurt a soul, unless they tried to hurt him first."
is a quote from
in the 1996 movie
Just purchased, now only 1600 gold :)
This guild is brilliant!
