Dragonflight Dragon Riding Glyphs Location Guide

Dragonflight Dragon Riding Glyphs Location Guide

Written by Paul and Leyst - 28th November 2022

In this guide, we show you where all 48 Dragonriding Glyphs are located on the Dragon Isles. After playing the WoW Dragonflight beta, we located and mapped out a route for each new zone. We unlocked Dragonriding and instantly collected all 48, but you could also do the zones as you level through them.

The Glyphs are used for the Dragonriding talent tree, you spend them to improve your dragon. We recommend trying to find the Glyphs without a guide, because discovering them was a lot of fun, but if you get frustrated or don’t have the time, then we are here to help.

There are a total of 48 Glyphs all around the Dragon Isles, split between The Waking Shores, Ohn’ahran Plains, The Azure Span and Thaldraszus. Every time you collect a glyph, you will get an achievement, which makes the glyphs account-wide, so if you collect them on one character, you don’t have to collect them again on your other characters.

Dragonriding Glyph Collection Tips:

  • Most of these Dragonriding Glyphs can be collected by waiting for all of your Vigor charges to be available to let you use multiple Skyward Ascent ability uses quickly after each other to generate speed and the height needed.
  • If you are doing multiple Glyphs, you can sometimes use the height gained on the current one to get to the next one quicker or without using as many Vigor charges, making collecting them a little less time-consuming.
  • If you can still access the Dragonriding Skill Upgrades via the Dragonriding emblem next-to your minimap (which you currently can on Beta) then make sure to upgrade whenever you have enough glyphs collected. Especially the max Vigor increase after collecting your first Glyph.
  • Install the TomTom Addon and create a Macro for each of the zones that contains the glyph coordinates for that respective zone. Then use the macro when inside that zone.
  • When you are close to a Glyph you haven’t collected yet, you will get a message in chat and the Dragon Glyph Resonance buff that a Glyph has been detected close to your location.

The Waking Shores

The image below shows all current locations for the Dragoriding glyphs in The Waking Shores. The order of the Glyphs is to help make collecting them quicker by using the height of one Glyph to glide to the next. However, it isn’t required to follow this path exactly, you can do them in whichever order you want.

Skytop Observatory Rostrum Glyph MapSkytop Observatory Rostrum Glyph Picture

/way 74.34 57.54

This glyph is located right next to the Rostrum of Transformation at the skytop Observatory.

Skytop Observatory Tower Glyph MapSkytop Observatory Tower Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 75.0 57.0

This glyph is located on top of the tower at Skytop Observatory.

If you continue the questline a little further, you will get teleported to the top of the tower, directly below the glyph. You can use Skyward Ascent to fly out of the tower and turn around to reach the Glyph.

If you start from the floor, you can use all 4 uses of Skyward Ascent to get to the glyph quickly.

The more controlled approach is to use 2 uses of Skyward Ascent to get to the platform on the right side of the tower, then use 1 Skyward Ascent to get to the bridge, then 2 uses of Skyward Ascent from the bridge to the glyph. Wait in between for your vigor to recharge.

Dragonheart Outpost Glyph MapDragonheart Outpost Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 69.27 46.23

This glyph is located inside of the broken part of the tower. You can either use multiple charges of Skyward Ascent to reach it from the floor, or glide down from the Skytop Observatory. Also, you can use the ledge right below it to not fall down before moving to the next glyph.

Stormshroud Peak Glyph MapStormshroud Peak Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 46.09 73.88

This glyph is located on top of the big mountain. I would recommend waiting part way up with this one until you have enough vigor recharged to reach the top.

If you came to this Glyph from number 1, you should already be able to make it pretty high up the mountain to recharge Vigor.

Once you collect this Glyph and have collected all of the other zone’s glyphs you should be able to unlock one of your final dragonriding skills in the current tree.

Valdrakken Glyph MapValdrakken Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way Thaldraszus 41.26 58.27

This glyph is located at the very top of the Seat of the Aspects tower in Valdrakken. It is high up, from the floor of Valdrakken it takes 3 - 4 charges of Skyward Ascent to reach the Glyph.

If you are low on Vigor and level 64 or above you can take the teleporter from inside the ground floor of the tower to The Seat of the Aspects and then make your way to the roof to collect the glyph.

If you come to this Glyph directly from number 2, you can glide all the way down to this one.

Gelikyr Overlook Glyph MapGelikyr Overlook Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 52.65 67.43

Passage of Time Glyph MapPassage of Time Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 55.76 72.33

This glyph is located on your way to the temporal conflux just before the big stone archway. It isn’t very high up, so a single Skyward Ascent will let you reach it.

Tyrhold Glyph MapTyrhold Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 61.57 56.61

This glyph is located on one of the floating rocks next to the enormous structure in Tyrhold.

To reach the glyph from Glyph 5 it will take 5 - 6 charges of Skyward Ascent. From the floor of Tyrhold it takes less, but you need to use charges to get into the zone. If you have less Vigor available, you can make your way part way up the giant structure to recharge some vigor and then fly over to the floating rock to collect the glyph.

Algeth'era Glyph MapAlgeth'era Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 49.85 40.23

This glyph is located at the top of the tower, just above the roof. From the floor it will take 3 or 4 Skyward Ascent charges.

If you come to this one directly from Glyph 6 you can glide all the way to this one.

If you are following our ordering, after collecting this Glyph, you should now be able to purchase your second skill in the final row of the dragonriding skill tree.

Algeth'ar Academy Glyph MapAlgeth'ar Academy Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 62.41 40.46

This glyph is located inside the top of the tower with the giant crystal on its roof. It can be tricky to spot because the glyph is located just below the ceiling inside the tower.

If you come to this one from Glyph 7, you are already most of the way up, so will require less Vigor charges to reach it. From the floor you may need to wait for your vigor to recharge before getting to the top of the tower.

Veiled Ossuary Glyph MapVeiled Ossuary Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 67.09 11.76

The glyph is located inside the top of the tower just below the rooftop.

If you come directly from Glyph 8, you can use 1 or 2 Skyward Ascent charges then glide most of the way down to this one.

Vault of the Incarnates Glyph MapVault of the Incarnates Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 72.40 51.71

This glyph is located above the lava next to the left of the Vault of the Incarnates raid entrance.

If you want to go from Glyph 9 to this one, I recommend that you go back via Glyph 8 as the mountain on the left is very high. I flew back to the Algeth'ar Academy tower and recharged my vigor before flying up to Glyph 10 from the Tyrhold side.

Once you get high enough to get into the area, you can glide the rest of the way to the glyph. You can also land on a rock area or the raid entrance platform to recharge some vigor.

Thaldraszus Apex Glyph MapThaldraszus Apex Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 72.96 69.14

This glyph is probably one of the hardest glyphs to get. It is located on the biggest mountain on the dragon isles; it will require you to have unlocked most of your dragon riding skills and you will still need to land on side parts of the mountain to recharge your Vigor before making it all the way to the top.

The rest points that you can land on are spaced out around the mountain, so if you find yourself losing speed, you can try to fly around the mountain before losing too much height if you are fully out of Vigor.

With almost everything unlocked and coming directly from the raid entrance platform next to Glyph 10, I landed twice to recharge Vigor. Firstly on a spiked section of the mountain on the side of the mountain that you reach directly from Glyph 10. The second on the snowy part of the mountain, almost on the opposite side from where I started. From there, I was able to Skyward Ascent 4 times to reach the Glyph at the very peak of the mountain.

Temporal Conflux Glyph MapTemporal Conflux Glyph Picture
Coordinates:
/way 66.01 82.34

This glyph is located inside the top of the tower, just below the rooftop. The glyph is pretty high up, so from the floor it will take multiple charges of Skyward Ascent.

If you come to this Glyph after Glyph 11, you can swiftly dive down straight towards the tower.

If you followed our ordering for all of this, you should have collected all available Glyphs and can now finish fully upgrading your dragonriding skills. Congratulations and thank you for reading!
