This item teaches you how to summon the Red Proto-Drake mount. You must complete the Dungeons & Raids achievement  [Glory of the Hero] to receive this reward. As of Patch 5.0.4, it will automatically be added to your mount collection.

When you completed the achievement before Patch 5.0.4, Neutral Alexstrasza the Life-Binder would send you the Drake with the following letter:

Glory of the Hero


Word has traveled to Wyrmrest Temple of the great heroic deeds you have accomplished since arriving in Northrend.

Your bravery should not go unrecognized. Please accept this gift on behalf of the Aspects. Together we shall rid Azeroth of evil, once and for eternity.

The vrykul were the first to recognize their potential. Or maybe the second, depending on how you look at it.
