Dragons are royal mounts capable of true flight. They are available to Mayors of metropolis nodes and Kings and Queens of Guild castles.[1][2]

We reserved it to very very few people per server, which is also going to make it a lot more meaningful when those flying dragons come into play for certain events.[2]Steven Sharif

Abilities

Dragons are epic flying mounts with strong battle abilities, such as AoE breath attacks, swooping flyby attacks, and others.[6][1]

The dragon will have a lot of capability in PvP. It's primarily its purpose, because as it relates to Castles and the sieges they're in, or Nodes and the sieges they're in. We want dragons to have large scale ramifications against player raids.[1]Steven Sharif

Mounted combat

Certain mounts will have combat abilities.[7]

  • Players can't use their class skills while mounted.[7]
  • Mounts can be killed by players, but can be resurrected.[8]

Appearance

Dragon appearances are based on the region of their origin.[9]

Royal mounts

Royal mounts are a class of mounts available to Mayors of metropolis nodes and Kings and Queens of Guild castles. Royal mounts can also be dropped from legendary world bosses.[1]

  • If dropped from World bosses, royal mounts will have a life-span likely between two weeks and four weeks, after which the mounts will pass away.[1]

Generally flying is not something that we're going to be doing in this game and there's a lot of reasons for that: Some of it is economic, some of it is ... you create this really great looking world and we don't want you flying over all the time.[2]Jeffrey Bard

There are different types of royal mounts.[1]

Dragons are a class of these royal mounts. You can get different types of royal mounts. They don't have to be dragons. They could be some other type of legendary mythical creature... It will be an epic looking large-scale creature and people will notice you and it while you are approaching.[1]Steven Sharif

Limitations

The maximum flight time on a royal mount is probably limited between 20 and 30 minutes. This will limit the range of effectiveness for these mounts.[1]

But it will be an epic looking large-scale creature and people will notice you and it while you are approaching.[1]Steven Sharif

Royal stables

Royal stables are a type of building present in castles and that can be elected to be built within nodes.[1]

The royal mounts will be the only class of mounts that can fully fly in the world; and they are will be needed to be mounted while in a royal stables. Royal stables are a building that can be built in a node if elected to be built by the mayor and supported by the community building it up through the quests to do so; and castles come with a royal stable as well. So once you have a royal stable and you become that Mayor or King or Queen, you may then mount the creature there and then take it wherever you wish. Will there be a flight timer associated with it? There will be a flight time associate with it, but the flight time will be considerable. We're thinking probably between 20 and 30 minutes. So will that limit the range of effectiveness? Yes it will limit the range of effectiveness for that particular mount. But it will be an epic looking large-scale creature and people will notice you and it while you are approaching.[1]Steven Sharif
