Drake mounts are epic flying mounts available by many ways. Both Alliance and Horde can acquire these mounts.

Drakes as loot

The majority of drake mounts are available as loot items from various dungeons and raids.

Culling of Stratholme

The Bronze Drake is a 100% drop from Infinite Corruptor in the Culling of Stratholme on heroic mode.

Obsidian Sanctum

The Black Drake drops from Sartharion in the 10-man version of the Obsidian Sanctum and the Twilight Drake in the 25-man version. These drakes will only drop if all three of Sartharion's Twilight Drake lieutenants are still alive when you engage him.

The Nexus

The Azure Drake can be found inside Alexstrasza's Gift after defeating Malygos inside The Eye of Eternity in the 25-man versions. In patch 3.3.2 this drake was available from 10-man Malygos, but it was changed back to 25-man-only in patch 4.0.3.

The Blue Drake can be found inside Alexstrasza's Gift after defeating Malygos in the 10-player version of The Eye of Eternity. For a time during Wrath of the Lich King it was changed to a rare find in the  [Cache of the Ley-Guardian] after defeating Ley-Guardian Eregos inside The Oculus when using the Dungeon Finder. This change was made in patch 3.3.2 to encourage players to complete the instance instead of abandoning it. The Blue Drake was moved back to Malygos in patch 4.0.3.

Onyxia's Lair

The Onyxian Drake drops from Onyxia. The drop rate is incredibly low.

Dragon Soul

In Dragon Soul, Ultraxion drops the chromatic drake Experiment 12-B, an incredibly rare drop from normal and heroic mode.

Deafeating Deathwing in the Madness of Deathwing encounter has two different drake mounts in the Elementium Fragment: the Blazing Drake is a rare drop on normal mode, and the Life-Binder's Handmaiden is a rare drop on heroic mode.


 [Reins of the Infinite Timereaver] has a chance to drop from any Timewalking boss.

Reputation Boxes

 [Valarjar Stormwing] is a possible drop from  [Valarjar Strongbox].
