    Since were going back to Draenor..

    Does anyone expect to see new nether drake models? Or a new type of drake entirely? Maybe no drakes and Chimeras will be replacing drakes?

    Nether drakes won't exist on this Draenor and Chimaeras are Azerothian imports (at least the Iron Horde one is).
    If it's not an elf, leave it on the shelf.

    So, a new drake entirely then. Any ideas on how it would look?

    Nether Drakes would make no sense. Nether Drakes are Black Dragon eggs that were modified by the power that ripped Draenor apart. Since Deathwing and the other Black Dragons have never been to this Draenor, and the energies that mutated them never existed, there are no Nether Drakes in this timeline.

    There aren't any indigenous dragon species (that we know about) on Draenor.

    I get the feeling that a lot of people who started playing Warcraft games in WoW or even Warcraft III don't realise how very different Draenor is going to be to Outland.

    There are no draconoid species native to Draenor, the Netherwing are leftover from eggs Deathwing left there when he was in Draenor during BTDP (shortly after the Second War, we are going back to pre-First War era).

    So actually this may be the first WoW expansion with no dragons/drakes/etc at all.

    No Dragons at all. They mentioned in the lore panel there may not even be a Dragonmaw clan at this period for the reason no dragons exist.

    Closest thing is the "Dragon"fly mount.

    Yeah, that's why I put in the option for a new drake.

    With Blizzard's style, they can't not have drakes, let's say the don't include a drake (they probably could by pulling lore out their ass) what would the flagship flyer type be?

    Maybe we'll discover a new island in 6.3 with a big troll raid in the middle that's being taken over by dragons. Endboss is Kael'thas riding Onyxia's charred bones.

    I'm guessing Chimaeras. Seeing as we just got one.

    The best your prob gonna get is black/ bronze drakes possibly corrupted by iron horde tech/ burning legion/ infinite >.< If draenor has never seen azeroth though that means deathwing hasn't come through and made a nest >.<

    I wonder if we'll hear anything about them, I don't think there's ever been lore for them in Draenor. Maybe they were an offshoot of some other clan. Or maybe they used to be called the Chimaeramaw clan :P

    the flag ship flyer is going to either be Chimeras like the store mount or the dragon fly posted above. no confirmation really just a feeling.

    CM: We haven't talked all that much about the Dragonmaw so far, but I would say that is a possibility. There's a lot of second-tier orc clans that all have pretty cool kits, but we haven't been exhaustive yet.
    DK: More importantly, there's no native dragons on Draenor. So that whole clan identity wouldn't have existed until later on.
    CM: What Dave is saying is that he wishes I hadn't made them up back in WC2. And sometimes I wish I hadn't either. So we don't know exactly what we're going to do with them. (Source)

    Hopefully nothing since the idea is grounding us. NetherRAYSs are native to Outland and were the "other" flyer available in BC. Chimaeras are possible too. I don't really get how they took an iconic Night Elven beast ally and turned it into the flyer of the Iron Horde.

    The only new 'Nether' model I want is a brand new Nether Ray mount.

    The Draenor chimaera are a completely different species to the ones found on Azeroth, much like the raptors, wolves, insects, etc. That's why they look vaguely similar, but are different. If anything, the flying mounts will be the chimaera or insects.

    The various nether species likely won't be seen, unless they're in their un corrupted forms. The energies that created them haven't happened to this Draenor.

    If anything, according to the quote in my signature, this planet will be like a giant Australia.

    Draenor has it's own race of Chimaera. If you're going to try and bash the lore at least try and know it first.
