Hold onto your hat while you take to the skies in style.

In our last article, we covered the best ground mounts in World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth. This time, we’re looking at some of the best flying mounts in the game. While flying hasn’t been unlocked in Kul Tiras and Zandalar as of Patch 8.0, this feature will be available to players later in the expansion. Now is the time to prepare and hunt for new flying mounts to add to your collection!

Here is a list of some of the best flying mounts throughout all of World of Warcraft’s expansions. It is by no means comprehensive, but these mounts are either exceptionally rare, unique in appearance or are desirable for some other reason.

11. Solar Spirehawk

Solar Spirehawk

​"Looking into the eyes of this mystical beast is like peering into the heart of the sun. Goggles are recommended when you're riding."

Solar Spirehawk

The Solar Spirehawk is impossible to ignore. As one of the brightest mounts in the game, it will attract attention from other players and pairs well thematically with any of the Firelands raid sets, Fire Mages or Blood Elven characters.

This flaming bird is the perfect mount for intense personalities and those who appreciate eye-catching items. While there are a few variations of this mount, none seem to stand up to how awesomely bright the Solar Spirehawk is. Make sure you match it with a fiery Transmog set to really blow people away!

There’s a few ways to find Rukhmar, who drops the mount. First, you have to head back to Draenor– not Outland from the Burning Crusade expansion, but the Warlords of Draenor zones. There’s a portal to Stormshield in Stormwind Keep, as well as the portal to its Horde equivalent, Warspear, located in the Valley of Strength in Orgrimmar. Don’t forget that old Garrison hearthstone collecting dust in your bags! Head over to the Spires of Arak by either flying there yourself or taking the flight path. There’s a bridge that leads into the dungeon, so stand in that spot facing south and wait for the huge glowing bird to path around some distance away. Since this is a world boss, it resets once a week with all the other raids; unfortunately, you aren’t able to use a token as a means to get another chance for it.
