    Dragonriding gold

    Is there anything for getting all advanced courses gold? Only thing ive seen listed is a reward for all bronze which is a shoulder mog. Kinda weird that theres no tryhard reward just a participation trophy.

    There are, but you can't see silver/gold until you complete the previous tier. Think there is a way to see it but I just checked wowhead.

    You get a pet (Bronze Racing Enthusiast: its a proto whelp with a flag) for advanced silver and a title (Isles Racer X) for advanced gold.
    I got them all before I hit level cap - only a few of them took more than 6x tries.

    Theres an all gold on advanced courses aswell, but it was relatively easy as long as youve gathered all the coins and upgraded ur drake. The vast majority i landed gold on first try.

    A few of the courses were ahrder thou, had me do a couple of attempts before hitting gold.
    None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.

    There are rewards connected to all the tiers, as well as achievement points.

    First is shoulders, then pet, then title if I recall.

    Just finished first region advanced gold, looks like reigon gold = new color for seat.
    You can preview them all also in the transformation rostrum, just didnt pay attention before.

    That's for Silver. Doesn't look like there's a reward for gold in each region.

    Bronze

    Silver

    Gold

    you do also get red+gold armor colour for all the dragons from completing each of the zones races on advanced, and a random other thing i think its hair colours for doing all the normal races. i am pretty sure they are silver required, but not 100%

    is there a way to check which ones have you finished in bronze? wasn't into it when the exp came out but I'm really enjoying them now so I want to finish them all in gold.

    Achievements -> Expansion Features -> Dragon Riding has all relevant achievements listed.

    Any tips? I've done everything silver first try, some gold, but i need to get where to shave off some time. Some races i've been like half a second slower, others i'm like 2+ secs late - probably doing something wrong.

    A lot of it is keeping your blue speed constant, and not overusing your vigour when you have speed boosts/knowing where collectible vigour baubles are. Knowing the course helps too, since you can tightly take turns or descend at a slight incline to keep regen pushing.

    Wish there was an addon or ingame indicator to note which courses you haven't hit gold in yet

    You can track which you have not hit silver/gold with achievements.

    remember that your surge forward makes you immune to hazards, so you can use it to boost through the arcane orbs, fire orbs, and lava spews.
    but really just gotta tighten those curves, better utilize your boost+whirling surge, and make sure you deviate slightly to grab speed boosts+vigor orbs.


    also surge forward works more effectivly when you are slow, so bang to your buck always start your race with surge forward a couple times, then use whirling surge mid race when you have a long open.

    Is whirling surge even worth using outside of world PvP? I got gold on all the advanced courses without using it once. Feels rather inefficient, relative to three surges.

    I really enjoyed the dragon races so i beat them all within the first week - but i spend a lot of time on it. I dont know why people feel the need to come on here and brag about how ez it was for them and how they got it without even trying - they didnt obviously.

    What i found worked for me the best was to never use whirling surge unless you are swimming in Vigor. Surge forward is much better for speed/vigor. Skyward ascent is only used on one or two of the races as far as i remember.

    I never needed to take the bait vigor points that was a bit out of the way to complete a course - it always seemed to cost more then it provided.

    Sharp turns and optimizing a constant speed worked the best for me.
