So long as the challenges don't disappear they should become increasingly approachable and trivial to the regular player, while still being a significant reward to Dragonriding enthusiasts, given from Dragonriding related content.
    Sure seems more approachable than comparable endgame activities, like Revered with all factions, or defeating the last boss of the raid.

    Realistically I would assume it's a reward from endgame questing. At least going by it's appearance being an HD version of the Soul of the Aspects. But I am still not convinced that is "easier" than all Dragonriding challenges at some treshold.
    Huh? It was obvious from the original announcement that we would get to ride (atleast) 4 different mounts for dragon riding. It was stated as that both on the website and the presskit.

    I hope dragons are something like artifact skins or azerite essences. So awarded for different types of content, first skin easy to achieve for everyone, then harder with every recolor. Big difference is that this time system is completely account wide, so you could do it on various characters.

    we get skins for things like dungeons and pvp and other content

    They could even give us a mage tower type of content for exactly this. I think it would elevate the feature of Dragonriding a lot.

    Of course, although mage tower needs class rewards. But nowadays they put a lot mounts in every patch, so even class dragons with separate recolors for each spec could be possible.

    Anyone who has the alpha that can check how many targets can Flame Shock be spread to via Lava Lash? Is it still capped?

    I think class specific dragon armour rewards could be possible. Don't think they will create 13 unique class drake models though - I would rather have them release atleast one generic new drake with lots of customization options per patch instead. Maybe Netherdrakes for 10.1, Faydragons (they already re-used the heart of the aspects model for the snakes so shop mounts could get propper recolours) for 10.2 (or whatever the emerald dream patch will be) and propper big Dragons/Wyrms for the final patch?

    They could just add class-specific symbols or items to the dragons, e.g. books for Paladins, quivers for Hunters, barrels for Monks etc. So basically the exact same mount model with different attachments.

    So we don't know anything about the final story of the raid but we did see 4 incarnates in the first press release and the idea of the first raid is that they are trying to release them

    The final boss according to the current journal doesn't really have anything to do with them though

    Is it possible we are going to see a hidden final boss like algalon??

    ???

    The final boss is Raszageth, one of the Incarnates.

    From the questing she's a powerful proto dragon but I didn't think she was an incarnate since the art we saw of them in the announcement was so different and she was sealed in a different prison

    I might just be missing a ton since most places just have summaries

    Still that's only 1 of 4 so is it possible they get released?

    At the very least given her power level and leading the current primalist forces after Kurog frees her, I would say she's an incarnate.

    Yep, confirmed fifth model.

    It's uses the Heart of the Aspects rigging.

    After playing around with the dressing room a bit, I'm actually on board now with normal classes being available for Dracthyr later on in the Expansion (maybe once we reconquered the Forbidden Reaches?).

    A chromatic flight inspired rogue would be so cool! Or maybe a hunter with Chromaggus as pet.

    I noticed the dungeon armor models correspond to different groups on the Isles: Titans/watchers, Tuskarr, Centaurs and Djaradin. REALLY like the Centaur and Tuskarr ones (mail and leather).

    I hope this doesn't mean that Tuskarr and Centaurs don't have armor rewards for their covenants.

    Im just surprised the mail set doesn't look horrible for once. I wonder if the designers decided to out some extra effort in now that Dracthyr will use Mail as well.

    I think it's because this time they went for a class-based look (Hunters because the Centaurs are hunters) over "lol it has scales and dead animals on it"
