  • WoW Dragonflight: Recommend Dragonriding Customizations and How to Unlock Them

    Posted: Dec 14, 2022

    Flying has been an essential mode of transport in World of Warcraft since The Burning Crusade expansion. Since then, hundreds of mounts have been made available to players, some of which are harder to obtain than others.

    In World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, however, all the flying mounts in a character's inventory have been rendered useless when it comes to soaring through the skies. Instead, they are given their very own Proto-Drake, which will be trained through the Dragonriding skill. This new companion will stay with the character throughout their adventure on the Dragon Isles and can be customized in just about any way, including the appearance of their horns, body armor, jaw, stout, and the style of its crest.

    Unlocking The Proto-Drakes
    Players will unlock four different types of Dragonriding drakes during their time on the Dragon Isles. The first one is provided very early in the main campaign of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight, which is the Renewed Proto-Drake. This ferocious-looking dragon will help the player get to grips with Dragonriding while questing through The Waking Shores.

    The Windborne Velocidrake will be awarded to players in the Ohn'ahran Plains at the end of the campaign questline. The Highland Drake will be unlocked during the main questline of The Azure Span, with the Cliffside Wylderdrake becoming available in Thaldraszus after completing the main campaign storyline.

    Adding More Fins
    The 'Finned' option for the Renewed Proto-Drake, paired with the Finned crest, jaw, and throat options, will bring the drake back to its primitive roots. The Finned tail appearance is a world drop, which means it has a chance of dropping from mobs and rare spawns scattered around the Dragon Isles. The Finned throat and jaw are quest rewards, so those questing through Dragonflight will eventually get them.

    Players can unlock the Vertical Finned tail appearance for the Highland Drake when they have reached the High Renown rank with the Cobalt Assembly, while the Horizontal Fin is a quest reward. The Highland Drake can also sport the Triple Fin customization if the player has reached the Medium Renown rank with the Cobalt Assembly.

    The Large Fin and Small Fin crest options for the Windborne Velocidrake, as well as the Finned Ears, can be looted from mobs and rare spawns anywhere in the Dragon Isles. The throat Fin is a quest reward, and the back Fin can be purchased from Meiz and Steiz early into helping the Cobalt Assembly.

    When it comes to unlocking the Fin options for the Cliffside Wylderdrake, the crest Fin will drop from dungeons, the jaw Fin is a world drop, and the tail fin can be purchased when the player has a High Renown rank with the Colbalt Assembly.

    Windborne Velocidrake - Bird Appearance
    The Windborne Velocidrake already looks very birdlike, but there are some customizations that can make it appear more like an ancient bird rather than a drake. This can be achieved by unlocking the Feather tail, which is dropped by Balakar Khan in the Nokhud Offensive dungeon on any difficulty level. The back Feathers and throat Feathers will be awarded through questing, while the crest Feathers option is a world drop. The final detail to make this appearance complete is the Beaked snout, which can be purchased from the Cobalt Assembly when the player reaches the Medium reputation rank with the faction.

    Animal Snouts
    The Renewed Proto-Drake and the Windborne Velocidrake are the only two drakes that can have their snouts customized. Most of the options available will add animal-like features to the drakes, such as the Wolf snout, exclusive to the Windborne Velocidrake, and the Shark and Beaked options for the Renewed Proto-Drake.

    The Wolf snout, which adds a canine-like nose to the drake, is a main campaign quest reward, while the Shark option is a world drop. The Beaked option for the Renewed Proto-Drake drops from the dungeon bosses Kyrakka and Erkhart found in the Ruby Life Pools.

    PVP Reward - Crimson Gladiator Transformation
    The Crimson Gladiator transformation for the Highland Drake can only be unlocked by earning the Gladiator rank in season one. This appearance will add plenty of armor and studs to the drake, as well as flame tips to its spine and horns.

    Earning the Gladiator rank is no easy feat, as the player will need to win 50 3v3 games while having a skill rating of 2400 or above. Those who do achieve the Gladiator title will also unlock the Custom Gladiator mount. The Crimson Gladiator appearance will no doubt be one of the rarest drake transformations in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight due to the difficulty in obtaining it.
