    Do not see a breadcrumb quest in Valdrakken or Orgrimmar, though the races and currency are there

    The sky's the limit unless you want to dragonfly anywhere other than the races in Kalimdor, then the sky actually has a limit and it's not very much.

    Hope we get azeroth dragonflying soon

    well... these races are vicious, especially compared to the ones in Zaralek caverns... I thought about trying for title, but I can NOT be bothered to put in the kind of practice that would be required of me to pull off silver consistently, let alone gold. I guess outfit will just have to suffice.

    I guess someone at Blizzard didn't receive the memo. Ignore the outdated information and head to the drake customization area in Valdrakken.

    Yeah, that's the one I'm struggling with as well. Closest to gold was 0.7seconds off and after that it's mostly 2-3 seconds. Don't know what I'm doing wrong there.

    So I just grinded these out in around 5-6 hours as well as did a few of the easier ones on alt in an hour for enough coins to buy everything finally having a day free to do them and thinking it was the last day prior to the update. Reverse Ahn'Qiraj Circuit race and all of the Un'Goro Crater Circuit races had to be the worse, Qiraj was timed ridiculously tight especially with the boost deadzone at the top plateau up the stairs halfway through and whoever designed the Un'Goro track has some twisted sense of humour sticking so many rings right next to boulder and hill hit boxes.

    PSA: to all who are struggling for these, invest some time learning the Flick Trick. It provides a butt load of momentum and makes the races much easier, even trivializing some of them.
    The way to do it is: face camera upward, press your Ascend button, right after you press Ascend quickly face camera down to where it’s basically straight ahead again (little past), and you can quickly adjust back to normal. You pretty much face your camera down at the same time as pressing Ascend (my finger was still on the button as I did it). This motion and button press is all within about a second total.
    Get that down and you’ll be getting to gold rather quickly. The hardest part afterwards is just using it at the correct time so you don’t slam into a tree branch or the ground.
