Why you should buy Dragonriding boost
You will receive your Dragonriding mounts from completing main storyline quests in the Dragon Isles. Indeed, that will take some time. There are four Dragonriding mounts, and there are no differences besides appearance. You can change their appearance with customization and glyphs for Dragonriding talents that could be unlocked in the game via various activities with a tideous grind in their core. Our Dragonriding boost is the fastest and easiest shortcut to get all customizations and cool features for your drake mount.
Like most mounts, Dragonriding mounts are account-wide, and once learned, alts on your character can immediately Dragonride in the Dragon Isles. Currently you can only use Dragonriding mounts in the Dragon Isles, but it could change in future DF patches or even in the next expansion.
Let's look what Dragonriding mounts you could get:
- The Renewed Proto-Drake is the first Dragonriding mount you'll earn, given as a reward for the quest Dragonriding, part of the third chapter of the Waking Shores storyline.
- The Windborne Velocidrake is the second Dragonriding mount you'll earn, given as a reward for the quest Shady Sanctuary, part of the fourth chapter of the Ohn'ahran Plains main storyline.
- The Highland Drake is the third Dragonriding mount you'll earn, given as a reward for the quest Calling the Blue Dragons, part of the fourth chapter of the Azure Span main storyline.
- The Cliffside Wylderdrake is the fourth and last Dragonriding mount you'll earn, given as a reward for the quest Back to the Future, part of the third chapter of the Thaldraszus storyline.
Dragonriding Flying Basics
There are some of the basics you need to know about Dragonriding. Most of these will be taught to you during the Dragonriding introduction questline.
- You can get into the air from the ground at any point by double pressing your jump button - this will count as a Skyward Ascent usage, using 1 Vigor and propelling you forward in the air.
- Falling from a high location while mounted on a Dragonriding mount - this will cause it to extend its wings, propelling you forward and preventing fall damage.
- There are physics involved into Dragonriding - you will gain more speed when propelling yourself downwards, and lose speed when moving upwards. Using Vigor abilities will help you gain momentum.Propelling yourself downwards and then moving upwards evens out momentum and is a way to keep yourself in the air for longer.
- If you spend too long in the air without attempting to gain momentum, your mount will lose speed and eventually run out of steam - when this happens, your mount will slowly land to the ground. Because of this, AFKing in the air while Dragonriding is not possible.
You are able to tell how fast you're flying with Dragonriding by paying attention to the speed particles around you and your dragon as you dragonride. Although the maximum speed Dragonriding can reach is 830%, it is actually very difficult to maintain maximum speed for very long, but even medium speeds are already faster than the usual Epic Flying speed that of normal flying mounts. At certain locations of the Dragon Isles, specifically places with a lot of elevation, you might come across an upwards wind gale. These are called Winds of the Isles, and stepping on them will launch you upwards speeding you up as well.
When Dragonriding, your default ability bar will be replaced by a new ability bar that will contain your Dragonriding abilities. There are 4 different Dragonriding abilities that you will learn while leveling with your character through the Dragon Isles. These abilities use Vigor and will help you stay up in the air for longer.
||Flap forward, gaining a small burst of momentum.
||Flap upwards, gaining a small burst of momentum and altitude. Pressing the Jump key twice while grounded will automatically use Skyward Ascent.
||Spiral forward to cover a great distance, gaining a large burst of momentum. 30-second cooldown.
||Mark a waypoint of your current position for 3 minutes. Once you have a waypoint created, this spell turns into Bronze Rewind, which can be used to return you to that waypoint. You cannot create a waypoint while flying, but you can return to that waypoint while in the air. 3-minute cooldown.
Dragonriding Vigor System
Dragonriding abilities use Vigor, a new resource bar that's shown at the bottom of your screen whenever you're mounted on a Dragonriding mount. Some information about the Vigor system:
- All players start with 3 Vigor. With Dragonriding talents, you are able to increase your maximum amount of Vigor to 6.
- When grounded, you generate 1 Vigor every 30 seconds, even when not mounted on a Dragonriding mount. With Dragonriding talents, you are able to speed up your Vigor regeneration when grounded.
- You do not regenerate Vigor when flying with your Dragonriding mount.
- When dragonriding at high speeds, you will start emitting blue particle effects demonstrating how fast you're going, and gain the Thrill of the Skies effect, which grants you 1 Vigor every 15 seconds while maintaining high speed. You will lose this effect once you lose enough momentum. With Dragonriding talents, you are able to speed up your Vigor regeneration when under the effects of Thrill of the Skies.
Dragonriding has a talent system of its own, focusing on Vigor regeneration and useful buffs while Dragonriding. To learn Dragonriding talents, you must earn Dragon Glyphs. There are 48 Dragon Glyphs scattered around the Dragon Isles, and you must collect them by flying to their locations and passing through them to earn talent points for Dragonriding talents. Some of them are well hidden or require a skillful amount of climbing with Dragonriding to get.
This is what Dragonriding Talents trees looks like:
Dragonriding Talents are unlockable perks that ultimately allow you to stay in the air for longer, increasing your Dragonriding expertise. Once unlocked, Dragonriding Talents are account-wide, and all characters can access them. Dragonriding Talents are helpful in various activities on Dragon Isles, and if you want to get all experience that WoW developers put in dragonriding, you should unlock them all by collecting all glyphs in the game. And the fastest way to do it is to buy our Dragonriding Glyphs Boost!
