Albino Drake is a swift flying mount, and the reward for the [Leading the Cavalry] achievement.

Mount Journal

"Even the Draconic Native Association tests proved inconclusive in determining if the albino drake is related to a known dragonflight. -Breanni"

Letter

The drake and the following letter from Mei Francis are immediately sent to players who complete the achievement:

Leading the Cavalry

I couldn't help but to notice how good you are with the livestock. With all of the activity around here, business has been better than ever for me.

I don't suppose you'd mind looking after this Albino Drake for me? I simply don't have enough spare minutes in the day to care for all of these animals.

Yours,

Mei

Notes

  • The icon that the mount uses is the same as that of the blue drake. However, players who look in the icon list of the macro interface can find the icon meant for the Albino Drake. The reason it does not use this icon is likely to be merely a minor oversight by programmers.
  • The white drake model was also used as a placeholder for proto-dragons before their model was implemented during Wrath of the Lich King beta.
  • Several unused skins exist in the database of white-colored dragonspawn.

Speculation

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.

There has been some speculation that, due to the tinges of blue on various parts of its body, the Albino Drakes could have been some sort of creation of the Azure Dragonflight. Others have speculated that hey are focus of an unformed dragonflight, with very few individuals to form one. More likely, as the name implies, they are simply normal drakes with albinism.
