Having a Proto-drake as a mount is a signature achievement. All proto-drake mounts require either luck or great effort to acquire. All proto-drake mounts require the artisan (300) riding skill to fly, but players with a lower level of riding skill can still run along the ground atop these mounts.

Plagued Proto-Drake can be occasionally purchased from the Black Market Auction House.

Retired Proto-drake mounts

The following mounts were also rewards for completing achievements. Like the Amani War Bear, they were intended as exceptional rewards for players on the cutting edge. With the release of new content, the achievements became much easier to complete and thus less exceptional. To retain their rarity, on release of Patch 3.1.0 the achievements no longer awarded these mounts.
