Dragon Glyphs are collectibles scattered throughout the Dragon Isles in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. Collecting them allows you to purchase Dragonriding Talents from Dragonriding Trainers, vastly improving your skills in Dragonriding and unlocking new abilities, such as Airborne Tumbling, which will enable you to strike enemy players out of the sky. There are 12 Dragon Glyphs discoverable in each of Dragonflight’s four main zones and we highly recommend collecting them all as soon as you enter each one. Below, you can find the exact locations of all 48 Dragon Glyphs in WoW: Dragonflight.
The Waking Shores Dragon Glyph Locations

/way The Waking Shores 75, 56 Skytop Observatory Tower
/way The Waking Shores 58, 78 Flashfrost Enclave

/way The Waking Shores 21, 51 Obsidian Throne
Skytop Observatory Rostrum
This is the first Dragon Glyph you will collect and is a mandatory requirement to complete the Dragon Glyphs and You Campaign quest. It’s directly left of the Rostrum of Transformation and by far the easiest Dragon Glyph to find.
Skytop Observatory Tower
On the peak of the highest tower at Skytop Observatory, almost directly above Lithragosa, the Dragonriding Trainer of The Waking Shores.
Directly above the cliff housing Flashfrost Enclave’s freezing cave opening.
On top of the most miniature tower among the ruins in the Southern exit of Wingrest Embassy.
Atop the tallest mountain looming over the Overflowing Spring, above the waterfall.
Crumbling Life Archway
Under the smaller archway to the left of the Crumbling Life Archway. This Dragon Glyph is highly visible on certain Flight Master Taxi paths in The Waking Shores.
The very tallest mountain at Scalecracker Peak. This can be difficult to reach without your Drake having a full charge. If you are unable to reach this, you can learn some Dragonriding Talents and return at a later time.
Ruby Life Pools Peaks
South of the Ruby Life Pools flight path, on the mountain with a fantastic view of the area.
South of the Obsidian Bulwark, atop the tall rock formation with the conjoined archway.
At the very peak of the Life-Binder Observatory, above the spire. Ensure you rest to regain Vigor as you ascend, as this is one of the highest points in The Waking Shores.
The tallest tower at Dragonheart Outpost has a crack at the top of it, which houses this Dragon Glyph.
On top of the Obsidian Throne’s lavafall.
Ohn’ahran Plains Dragon Glyph Locations
Make sure to spend the Dragon Glyphs you’ve earned so far, as Ohn’ahran features many tall mountains and hard-to-reach areas. Rubyscale Outpost is a unique Dragon Glyph being that it is technically in The Waking Shore but counts towards Ohn’ahran Plains‘ achievement.
TomTom coordinates for every Dragon Glyph in Ohn’ahran Plains are as follows:
/way The Waking Shore 48, 86 Rubyscale Outpost
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 57, 31 Ohn’ahra’s Roost
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 30, 60 Nokhudon Hold
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 30, 61 Emerald Gardens
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 29, 74 Eternal Kurgans
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 44, 64 Sszar Skeleth
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 47, 72 Mirror of the Sky
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 57, 80 Ohn’iri Springs
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 84, 77 Dragonsprints Summit
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 86, 39 Rusza’thar Reach
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 61, 64 Windsong Rise
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 78, 21 Mirewood Fen
Despite being part of the Ohn’ahran Plains Glyph Hunter achievement, the Ruby Scale Dragon Glyph is technically in The Waking Shore. It’s directly above a bridge between the two zones.
At the apex of the eagle statue wedged into the mountain at Ohn’ahra’s Roost.
At the peak of Nokhudon Hold‘s mountain. Do not enter the Hold itself, as it is full of Level 70 Elite enemies.
Above the waterfall flowing through Meritha’s Watch. Despite this Dragon Glyph being named after the Emerald Gardens, the Glyph itself isn’t actually in them.
The Eternal Kurgans
Between the peaks and high above the path of the two largest mountains in The Eternal Kurgans.
Above the ruined tower in Szar Skeleth.
Mirror of the Sky
Very high in the sky above the mountains leading into The Azure Span.
In the sky directly above Ohn’iri Springs‘ waterfalls, towards the top of the mountain.
Straight in front of a wall with flowing water at the side of Dragonsprings Summit, directly below Cobalt Assembly in The Azure Span.
Hovering over the building on the mountain towering over Rusza’thar Reach, almost directly in front of the Flight Point.
Directly above Windsong Rise, in the air. Loof for the swirly pattern on a grass verge. There is also a Rare Elite nearby that drops a Drakewatcher Manuscript, which unlocks a Renewed Proto Drake customization option.
Above the path leading into Ohn’ahran Plains taken at the end of The Waking Shore‘s campaign, just before the bridge you first come across your first centaur.
Azure Span Dragon Glyph Locations
Ensure you have obtained more Dragonriding Talents, but don’t head to Azure Span straight after Ohn’arahn, as there is a Dragon Glyph that counts towards Azure Spawn Glyph Hunter that is technically still in that zone.
TomTom coordinates for every Dragon Glyph in The Azure Span are as follows:
/way Ohn’ahran Plains 70, 86 Forkriver Crossing
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 45, 26 Cobalt Assembly
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 39, 63 Azure Archives
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 68, 60 Ruins of Karnthar
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 70, 46 Lost Ruins
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 10, 35 Brackenhide Hollow
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 26, 31 Creektooth Den
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 60, 70 Imbu
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 52, 48 Zelthrak Outpost
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 67, 29 Rhonin’s Shield
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 72, 39 Vakthros Range
/way The Azure Span:Dragon Isles 56,16 The Fallen Course
Above the path connecting Ohn’ahran Planes to The Azure Span, South of Forkriver Crossing’s Flight Point. This Dragon Glyph is technically on Ohn’ahran Planes but counts towards The Azure Span achievement.
On top of the Cobalt Assembly spire. Ensure you have enough Vigor charged to ascend to the top of the building.
In front of the highest floating platform in Azure Archives. You can rest on each platform to regain Vigor, if needed.
Ruins of Karnthar
Inside the broken wall of the tallest tower in the Ruins of Karnthar.
Inside the roof of the only in-tact tower of the Lost Ruins, nestled in the mountains.
To the side of the tallest tree in Brackenhide Hollow, which is rooted in a small mountain.
In the only broken tree inside the forest north of the Ancient Outlook tower, below Creektooth Den.
In the middle of the waterfall flowing down the edge of Imbu
Nestled in a tree overlooking Zelthrak Outpost.
Inside the roof of the smaller tower in the Upper Frostlands, South of the Rhonin’s Shield Flight Point.
Above the flat, icy area over the winding-lava tunnel in Vakthros Range.
The Fallen Course
Just before the broken bridge (The Fallen Course) that leads into Thaldraszus.
Thaldraszus Dragon Glyph Locations
Dragon Glyphs in Thaldraszus are mostly neatly packed together and should be the fastest of the four zones to acquire. By now, you should have enough Dragon Glyphs to upgrade your Vigor, which we highly recommend before beginning.
TomTom coordinates for every Dragon Glyph in Thaldraszus are as follows:
/way Thaldraszus 66, 82 Temporal Conflux
/way Thaldraszus 46, 73 Stormshroud Peak
/way Thaldraszus 35, 85 South Hold Gate
/way Valdrakken 58, 38 Valdrakken
/way Thaldraszus 49, 40 Algeth’era
/way Thaldraszus 61, 56 Tyrhold
/way Thaldraszus 62, 40 Algeth’ar Academy
/way Thaldraszus 67, 11 Veiled Ossuary
/way Thaldraszus 72, 51 Vault of the Incarnates
/way Thaldraszus 72, 69 Thaldraszus Apex
/way Thaldraszus 52, 57 Gelikyr Overlook
/way Thaldraszus 55, 72 Passage of Time
Inside the roof of the tower to the east of The Temporal Conflux. Directly in the middle of the hourglass on the map.
At the very top of Bluefeather Cliffs. Be cautious that you have a place to land for Vigor, as it’s extremely difficult to reach the peak without resting.
South Hold Gate
In the second tallest South-Western tower at South Hold Gate.
On top of The Seat of the Aspect in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight’s Capital City, Valdrakken. You can teleport to the top floor from the bottom to save on Vigor.
Above the spire of Algeth’era Court, close to the Algeth’era Flight Point.
On the small floating rock area above Tyrhold.
In the roof of the highest building in Algeth’ar Academy. This Dragon Glyph isn’t visible without physically going inside the top part of the structure.
Inside the roof of the tall building overlooking the Veiled Ossuary.
Vault of the Incarnates
To the left to the entrance to the Vault of the Incarnates Raid, above a lavafall.
On top of the tallest mountain in The Dragon Isles, making it the highest Dragon Glyph in the entire expansion. Make sure you have upgraded everything you possibly can, which should include all bar one Dragonriding Talent. The easiest way to ascend the mountain is through the Vault of the Incarnates area.
Above the bridge where the Valdrakken Accord are defending against enemies invading Gelikyr Overlook.
Passage of Time
Under the natural rocky arch that leads into Shifting Sands. Quite literally the Passage of Time.
Unlocking All Dragonriding Talents
Congratulations! You should now have all 48 Dragon Glyphs in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. You can click the Dragon Isles Summary button, and then Dragonriding Skills and Unlocks to spend your Dragon Glyphs to claim every Dragonriding Talent.
Despite the ‘multiple choice’ Dragonriding Talents showing a cost, it is free to swap them at any time (while grounded) to suit your current activity. Your Talents are account-wide and apply to every Dragonriding mount.
