70 (Requires 70)

- Return to Ja'y Nosliw at Netherwing Ledge in Shadowmoon Valley.
We go when you are ready.
- Wing Commander Mulverick says: You're in for a rough ride, <name>. I hope you've already made funeral arrangements.
Mulverick is the most gifted rider I've ever seen. The only thing holding him back from the top orc spot is his recklessness.
- Wing Commander Mulverick says: You're the best I've ever seen. I can't believe I'm saying this but you might have a chance against Skyshatter. And hey, if that doesn't go so well you can be my wing man...
Well it looks like it's just you and the captain now, grunt. Good luck! You're gonna need it!
There seems to be some kind of bug that causes players to dismount during the race like if they were hit by a lighting bolt (you see a lighting animation around you; like if you were hit) when actually they weren't. This happens during random series of barrages during the race. (can someone clarify this for me?) another point to this race is that at points in the race the commander will move around in a small section of the air, shooting his bolts around while he flies for about a yard or two in three random directions most of the time. after discussion with a Game master it has been confirmed this is not a bug, but part of the race. There also seems to be either a bug or just confusion between the attacks and the npc if you fly well enough where he will actually get caught by his own weapon, causing you to lose sight of him for a split second, then when you're getting your bearing back, he's already far ahead.
Compared to the previous four quests, Mulverick is quite difficult. In the last quarter of the race, he can seriously confuse players when he dips down below the dock and shoots his lightning balls all around. He also briefly does a similar trick right before the end of the race when he returns to the runway. If you beat him, know that he and Skyshatter are equally difficult, which is to say, if you can beat Mulverick, you can beat Skyshatter.
The race is not required to obtain the Nether Drake mount.
