With the introduction of dragonriding in World of Warcraft’s latest expansion, Blizzard has taken a step away from their static flying system, introducing brand-new mechanics and an entire talent tree dedicated to the art of flying around the Dragon Isles.

With this new talent tree comes Dragon Glyphs, floating tokens around each of the four zones that can only be reached by dragonriding. While many of them are meant to be found, some are a bit trickier to find. Here’s a breakdown of where to find every Dragon Glyph and why you should care about collecting them all.

What Are Dragon Glyphs?

World Of Warcraft: Dragonflight - Where To Find All Dragon Glyphs (1)

Dragon Glyphs are the primary currency for Dragonflight's new dragonriding talent tree. With each one you collect, you can spend them on a linear set of talents that enhance your overall flying abilities, such as faster vigor regeneration or the ability to dismount enemy players in the air.

These glyphs are also account-bound, meaning you only have to collect them once, and then any character on your WoW account can spend them on their talent trees. It only takes around an hour to collect all the Glyphs if you know where they are, so there’s little reason not to spend some time exploring the Isles in search of these tokens.

If you want to find the Glyphs even faster, then it’s recommended that you download TomTom, the popular coordinate addon. All it takes is a fast download and a /way command, and it’ll point you straight toward the Glyphs’ exact locations.

Many of the Dragon Glyphs in The Waking Shores are easily spotted from the ground or the sky, and as long as you know their names and can find the area on the map, it’s rather predictable where they show up. Your best bet is to scour any towers or mountains that stick out, as Glyphs are often found at the top of them.

However, there are a couple Glyphs that may leave you scratching your head. The Obsidian Throne Glyph, for example, is not found at the top of the Obsidian Citadel but rather behind it, requiring you to dive into the volcano there and have a close encounter with the lava pool.

There’s also the Flashfrost Enclave Glyph, floating on a rock overhang above the main part of the area where the quests take place. However, this can easily be seen by standing in front of the dungeon entranceto the Ruby Life Pools and looking up.

/way 48.7 86.7

Mirewood Fen

/way 78.4 21.4

The Dragon Glyphs of the Ohn’ahran Plains stand out even more than The Waking Shores, given the flat, rolling grassland aesthetic that the zone brings. If you see a suspicious hill or tower that looks a little too out of place, there’s a good chance it’s hiding a Glyph.

The Dragonsprings Summit Glyph can be a bit tough to see, as it’s located right on the border of the Ohn’ahran Plains and The Azure Span. However, if you dive down from the Cobalt Assembly into the Ohn’ahran Plains, you’ll likely see it on the way down.

The Rubyscale Outpost Glyph is mysterious as well, as it technically isn’t in the Plains at all but instead in The Waking Shores. However, it’s still on the achievement list for the Ohn’ahran Plains Glyphs, which may throw you off. But if you can find the outpost on the border between the two zones, you can’t miss it.

/way 70.1 86.6

The Fallen Course

Hovering just off to one side of the collapsed bridge at The Fallen Course.

/way 56.7 16.0

The Azure Span is where the Dragon Glyphs become far more elusive. Instead of standing out in plain sight, these Glyphs are often tucked away within a crevice or a tree, shielding them from a casual glance.

One of the tougher Glyphs to find is the Rhonin’s Shield Glyph, located just south of the flight point on the map. There’s a small tower with a mostly intact roof where the token hides, and you have to dive in from the side and enter through a collapsed opening to collect the Glyph.

Another challenging one is the Zelthrak Outpost Glyph. It may take a few soars around the small encampment to realize that the Glyph is hiding among the branches and leaves of a tall tree directly to the left of the hub area, just about halfway up from the ground.

Gelikyr Overlook

/way 52.7 67.4

Passage of Time

Floating directly in front of a rocky overhang at the Passage of Time.

/way 55.6 72.1

Thaldraszus offers just as many obstacles as The Azure Span does, more often than not hiding the Glyphs within the domes of towers, so you may not see them if you’re riding by.

The South Hold Gate is just one example of this. While you may expect the Glyph to merely be atop the tallest tower in the area, as was a trend in the first two zones, you have to swoop into the top to find the Glyph nestled away in the domed roof.

The Thaldraszus Apex Glyph is the ultimate challenge of a dragonrider. You may need to collect the other tokens first to utilize the talents, as it’s found at the peak of the tallest summit in the Dragon Isles. There aren’t many places to land to recover vigor, so you’ll have to soar horizontally at max speed to recover vigor in the air, then use Skyward Ascent whenever you can.
