Arcanite Dragonling from the collectible card game


This item is created with Engineering (300); taught by  [Schematic: Arcanite Dragonling].

Materials required:
Inv misc head dragon blue.png 1x [Mithril Mechanical Dragonling] Inv gizmo 07.png 4x [Delicate Arcanite Converter]


This dragonling casts Flame Buffet, increasing the Fire Damage done to the target by 60. This effect stacks up to 5 times.

Using this item starts a 20 minute cooldown on this trinket, and a 1 minute cooldown on other guardian pet trinkets (such as the other mechanical dragonling type trinkets, Defender of the Timbermaw, etc). This means that there is still some value in keeping older dragonling trinkets after creating new ones.

The summoned dragon gains one level for every 5 points the user has in Engineering. So an engineer with Engineering 375 summons a level 75 dragonling.

  • WoW Icon update.png Patch 1.4.0 (2005-04-19): The level of the Mechanical Dragonlings now scale with your engineering skill, so they will be always useful against enemies. Their damage and health has remained the same.
