- World of Warcraft’s Dragonflight expansion introduced dragonriding as a new feature that players have become enamored with.
- Players were eagerly anticipating the White Scales dragonriding customization reward from Tyr’s questline in Patch 10.2, but it seems to be missing.
- Blizzard has not addressed the situation yet, but it is assumed that the rewards may be bugged or there may be a later addition to the questline.
World of Warcraft is concluding the Tyr questline in Patch 10.2, though the advertised reward of getting a new dragonriding customization is nowhere to be found. While Dragonflight was billed as an expansion that would prune all the bloated systems that made Shadowlands and Battle for Azeroth such a chore for the average player, it also introduced dragonriding as a new way to traverse the world. It didn’t take long for the community to become enamored with the feature, as World of Warcraft players still enjoy dragonriding even in the final raid tier of Dragonflight.
Though Blizzard added plenty of new customization options over the course of the expansion, players were particularly excited for the White Scales dragonriding customization that was supposed to come in Patch 10.2. Tyr’s questline previously unlocked Gilded Armor as a reward for dragonriders in Patch 10.1.7, and with Blizzard officially announcing that White Scales would be obtained from concluding Tyr’s story, fans eagerly anticipated the weekly reset that would unlock the final stages of the questline.
However, as spotted by Wowhead and several players across social media, the questline ends by awarding World of Warcraft players the “of the Tyr’s Guard” title, an accompanying achievement bearing the same name, and nothing else. Blizzard hasn’t commented on the situation yet, but it is safe to assume that the rewards are either bugged, or there may yet be a small epilogue quest added later in Guardians of the Dream.
In addition to the White Scales customization option, the Tabard of the Tyr’s Guard is another curious omission. Though some players speculated that the tabard would only be rewarded to Paladins in World of Warcraft, Paladins have reported that they similarly did not receive the tabard after completing the quest. Patch 10.2.5 is already on the PTR, and while it has some curious additions, such as a new World of Warcraft mount type, it remains to be seen what the “Dragon Isles Epilogues” will entail.
Blizzard is slowly paving the way for dragonriding to become a true evergreen feature in The War Within, as regular flying mounts will be getting dragonriding support in the new World of Warcraft expansion, re-branded as Dynamic Flight. Given that The War Within won’t be released until Fall 2024, Blizzard has ample time to add the White Scales dragonriding customization until the developers move on from the Dragon Isles. Hopefully, World of Warcraft players will receive the missing rewards in full sooner rather than later.
World of Warcraft: Dragonflight was developed by Blizzard Entertainment and is the ninth expansion pack for the iconic massively multiplayer online role-playing game World of Warcraft.
Dragonflight features an overhauled user interface, raises the level cap to 70, and introduces a new race and class.
