Red Dragon Roost of the Third War

Mighty chains of adamantine steel bind the most powerful creature in all of Azeroth — Alexstrasza the Dragon Queen. Captured and ensorcelled by magiks contrived by the Dragonmaw clan, the great dragon is kept in a constant state of weakness and pain. As the unwilling slave of the Horde, the queen is closely watched as she lays her precious eggs. The Dragonmaw clan then raises her young to fight for the Horde — slaying the whelps when they become too powerful to be properly controlled. Constant efforts are made to break Alexstrasza's will in an attempt to master the control of more mature dragons.[1] (W2Man 81)

Allows you to call forth dragons. There are 5 different dragons: red, black, blue, bronze, and green. Their stats are all identical. Blue dragons have a Freezing Breath attack and bronze dragons have a Lighting attack. The colors of the dragons vary depending on the tileset.[1]

In World of Warcraft, dragon roosts from the Second War can still be seen in the Wetlands near Grim Batol. Dragonmaw Fortress is also a dragon roost, but not in the same style.
