In our latest post, we go through a list of things to do before Dragonflight goes live.


Dragonflight launches on or before December 31, 2022. The mounts listed here will still be obtainable in the Dragonflight pre-patch that will hit live servers a few weeks before the expansion.

Complete Ahead of the Curve: The Jailer

Fractal Cypher of the Carcinized Zerethsteed will be removed with Dragonflight. Until then, the mount guaranteed upon defeating the Jailer on Heroic difficulty and above. The Jailer drops a quest item (Almanac’s Echo) that you turn in for the mount.

Carcinized Zerethsteed

Defeat Sylvanas Windrunner on Mythic Difficulty

Defeating Sylvanas Windrunner in the Sanctum of Domination raid on Mythic difficulty yields Vengeance’s Reins. The mount will have a drop chance close to 1% when Dragonflight launches.

Vengeance’s Reins

Defeat the Jailer on Mythic Difficulty

Likewise, if you haven’t obtained the mount from Mythic Jailer yet, you still have plenty of time to do so before the drop rate is reduced to a measly 1% with the opening of the first Dragonflight raid tier.

Zereth Overseer

Earn Keystone Master in Shadowlands Season 4

The mount tied to Season 4 is Restoration Deathwalker and requires a Mythic+ Rating of at least 2,000. It’s going away when Season 4 ends.

Earn the Gladiator Title and Mount

Eternal Gladiator’s Soul Eater and the title are going away with the end of PvP Season 4. You must win 50 3v3 games while at Elite rank during Shadowlands Season 4 to earn both.
