Blue Drake

Reins of the Blue Drake has an extremely low (1% - 2%) chance to be found inside Alexstrasza's Gift after defeating Malygos in the 10-player version of the Eye of Eternity.

This item also has an extremely low (6%) chance to be found inside the  [Cache of the Ley-Guardian], which can be found in the Cache of Eregos after defeating Eregos in the Oculus on Heroic mode when the dungeon is randomly selected by the Dungeon Finder.

This item also drops from  [Satchel of Exotic Mysteries].

It also has a chance to be listed on the Black Market Auction House by Mei Francis, for the opening bid of 20,000g.

Mount Journal

Come not between the dragon and his wrath.

Criteria of


  • The  [Cache of the Ley-Guardian] is lootable when the Oculus is chosen as a random Heroic dungeon through the Dungeon Finder. Players will need to visit Behsten or Slahtz in order to stop experience gains at level 80 or 81 in order to farm the mount in this manner. When the Cache of the Ley-Guardian was first introduced the mount was removed from Malygos's loot table, but was returned once Cataclysm was released and players could level beyond the Oculus's dungeon finder level range. While Blizzard originally stated that the mount would be removed from the Cache as well, it was not actually taken out.

Patches and hotfixes

  • Cataclysm Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Reins of the Blue Drake once again drops from the Malygos encounter.
  • Wrath of the Lich King Hotfix (2010-01-05): Once Ley-Guardian Eregos is defeated, one loot bag per character will be provided in his chest in addition to the current rewards. Each loot bag will offer players... a chance of being rewarded the Reins of the Blue Drake. Keep in mind, however, that these extra loot bags will only be awarded to each party member if Oculus is selected by the Dungeon Finder when players choose the Random Heroic option.
This mount no longer drops from Malygos.
