Arcanagos sought to turn Medivh away from experiments into the arcane, but the influence of Sargeras had corrupted the wizard too deeply, and the great dragon paid for the transgression with eternal, burning agony.

Riding Requirements:

  • Level 110
  • Artisan (300) Riding



This mount drops from Nightbane in the Return to Karazhan dungeon.
Loot chance (in Legion): Blizzard confirmed that the chance of this mount dropping is 20% multiplied by the number of players in your group that are eligible for loot (not loot-locked). This works regardless of whether some of the party already have the mount or not, though the players who already have the mount cannot receive it again. So, if you have 5 members in your party who are eligible for loot there's a 100% chance that the mount will drop for someone (who doesn't already know it). If you have three players in your group and one is loot-locked, there's only a 2 x 20 = 40% chance that one eligible player (who doesn't already have the mount) will receive it. If you have 5 players eligible for loot, but 4 already have the mount then there's a 100% chance that the one lucky person who doesn't have the mount will receive it. We don't know if this rate will change in Battle for Azeroth.
