    Yes, maybe. If not Drakonid then what else? They are bipedal. The best option of all draco-ings.

    Highmountain, Ebonhorn (this isnt actually dragons being in trouble, but is still related to dragons.
    Stormheim, Fel vrykul have betrayed their dragon allies! You also help the dragons.

    Basically only suramar doesnt have dragons.

    Dragonkin/drakonid could be neutral allied race, if nothing else fits.

    But seriously, after events of cataclysm, dragons have been in trouble. I seem to recall they have hard time reproducing. They are weaker. They have lost much of their power. They are no longer the too powerful race to be not playable.
    There are also different types of dragons. Possibly you could split something like reds+green for alliance and bronze+blue to horde.

    This way because reds are basically the nicest dragons+nelves are very much connected to green dragons due to druid background.
    As far as horde goes, blue's are a bit on the agressive side (wotlk storyline) + stuff happening at sunwell at its time had relation to blue dragons. Horde already have nightborne that very good time related magic so thats why bronze could fit on horde side too.

    Blacks dont have huge numbers (at least not the friendly ones) so possibly they are not any faction, but this is just me thinking solutions.

    As to lore, why the dragons would ally themselves with alliance and horde. They might be looking for way to fix their problems. Basically find a way to prevent their extinction. Alliance and horde are very powerful factions so there is a good reason to side with them.


    Dragons! I want playable dragons! Dragonkin. Drakonids! Anything! Dragons!
    Dragons yes!

    But I would bet at least 50% have ether leveled, are leveling, boosted, or RC'ed into one, and at that point its just flavors of content.
    Wouldn't even need to be 50% participation for it to be worth continued development, If they hit 25-40% its worth investing time.

    As for Dragon men/kin I Personally have 5 toons I would dump into the dragon faction ASAP (only thing I would miss is my 10% rep, but I'm already exalted with 101/102 so I don't really need it anymore.) in addition to leveling 1 new one for the armor.

    Well if they did indeed do a split dragon faction, about the only one that is 100% nailed down I would say is the green flight being Alliance. yes Horde have druids as well, but I don't think anyone could make the argument that any race of the Horde would ever come close to the night elves...

    Past that, it evens up a little more, but funny enough at least by my reckoning most of the flights end up being Alliance based as well...

    Blues would most likely ally with the Kirin tor which while neutral have always been Alliance leaning. Also The Horde did slaughter a bunch of blue dragons in order to steel the focusing Iris as to wage war against the Alliance.

    Reds have made some friends on both sides, but they have had more help from the Alliance who Freed Alex for the Orcs, and they helped the reds clean out grim batol in cata, and the Reds have blessed the night elves twice. Meanwhile the Reds really only had what thrall did for them as a net positive, meanwhile the Horde still has members of the Dragonmaw clan in their ranks, and they do currently have a warmonger leading them who wants to wage a war on life...

    Blacks while currently not of significant numbers could be brought back somehow, after that It's kind of up to Wrathion. He dose like the current King of Stormwind, but he also disliked the fact that the Alliance speared the Horde after MoP so... who knows.

    The Bronzes seem the most distant, although out of nowhere they seemed perfectly okay with braking the timeline by bringing AU Orcs back to the main universe solely to help the Horde wage war... So I guess we can say they are Horde leaning... idk....

    Personally Something I always wanted is Dragons that take on a more elegant (about the size of a nightelf, smoother lines, ect) Drakonid form instead of Drakonids themselves. In game they take on every other races form, why couldn't they have a halfway shape that the use as to not intimidate while still maintaining their identity.

    Would be cool if they could use their dragon form as racial ability giving them 10-20 seconds or so extra burn that doesn't stack well with other raid CDs as to not make it OP. Put it on a longer CD (Like 10-20 min), and just disable it in arena.

    If that wouldn't work they could at least make it a flight form with the ability to carry 1-2 people like the sandstone drake.

    All the more reason to have Drakonids or Dragonspawn. They are, themselves, not true Dragons, simply mortals that have become very dragon-like. They have the blood of that Dragonflight flowing through them, but they're still different.

    I'd love to see a city of neutral Drakonid/Dragonspawn who have been granted freedom from the Dragonflights and allowed to make their own way in the world, now that the Aspects Titan-given duty is over.

    It sounds to me like some kind of fetish. Pray your fetish away. Drakonids are meant to be intimidating and mighty in appearance. Admit you have some odd scaey fantasies.

    indeed but if you ponder by ancient blood, then Ebonhorn would be the leader of the Black Dragonflight.

    As for the Bronze, they seem to be the easier fractured into assisting. In our timeline's case, we've seen many events where the Bronze Dragonflight aid to keep Horde events as they should - even to the point of splitting timelines with Garrosh.

    Not sure Red would side with the Horde. Given the orcs history with Alexstraza. Yeah, that all happened 30+ years ago in game, but that's like a blink of the eye for a dragon. She may have forgiven, but I don't think she or her flight forgot.

    If something like this were ever introduced, I suspect Drakonids to be Alliance with the flight color just being cosmetic or at most with a varying breath attack racial ability while Horde got something like Ogre or half Ogres (finally).

    Way back in the day, Drakonids were one of the races in game that certain WoW higher ups said that they'd like to see playable some time in the future. Metzen or Ghostcrawler or one of them I think it was. Doesn't mean anything, but just something I recall hearing.

    Yeah but I put them there bc of Red flight's bias/gravitation towards BEs and strong beliefs in family/blood. If given a chance for a proper apology, they'd fit in with that part of the Horde pretty easily. After all, plenty of races in the Horde joined while hating at least 1-2 members of it. The dragons have often proved wiser/more forgiving than mortals, but I see them ultimately being totally Alliance in the end.

    I want Sethrak before another reptilian race (even dragons, which is as ironic as my avatar would tell you it is). Mostly for lore consistency's sake, with the dragons in such dire straights any creation of a new species of any kind of dragon would feel identical to void elves where a race is made, without logical implications of population size or number.

    I'm all for throwing the dragons a bone though, it's mostly "Do they write it competently", which I don't have faith in.

    Wrathion was originally in the Alliance embassy so I could definitely see chromatic dragonkin for the Alliance
