Green Dragonflight – WoW Dragonflight

The green dragonflight (or the Emerald Dragonflight) consists of dragons with green scales. During the ordering of Azeroth, the titan Eonar charged Ysera and her flight with the protection of the natural world and the Emerald Dream, a pristine realm of nature and magic. Thus, green dragons have an affinity for animals and nature. Like the red dragonflight, green dragons are generally more approachable than those of other flights, primarily coming into conflict only with those who attempt to corrupt or destroy nature. They occasionally sought the help of druids to aid in this task.

Recently, the satyr Xavius used his dark magic to spread the corruption of the Emerald Nightmare throughout the Dream. This caused many green dragons, including Ysera’s lieutenants and consort, to become rampaging agents of destruction known as Nightmare Dragons. The corruption was stemmed after the end of the war Against the Nightmare.

Xavius would eventually return and, empowered by the Old Gods, began corrupting the Emerald Dream once again. Many emerald dragons succumbed to N’Zoth’s influence. Eventually, even Ysera herself was corrupted and needed to be slain, leaving the green dragonflight leaderless for a time. During the Fourth War, when the [Heart of Azeroth] needed the coalesced essences of the dragonflights to save the planet from N’Zoth, Merithra of the Dream stepped forward to lead the flight, and to defend Azeroth in her mother’s place.

Their breath weapons can consist of a variety of nature-based attacks, including corrosive acid, noxious gas, and emerald-colored fire.

By the time the Dragon Isles were re-revealed to Azeroth, the green dragonflight was in an unstable state. While Merithra was the flight’s de facto leader after Ysera’s death, she was not a proper aspect, and not all of the flight agreed that Merithra should lead them.

The enchanted, ethereal green dragons live only to serve the forces of nature and uphold the balance between mortal creatures and the ever-evolving world. The green dragonflight, ruled by the dreaming goddess, Ysera, holds a special love for the night elves and their druids. Though most green dragons live within the mystical dimension known as the Emerald Dream, a few of the graceful creatures still roam the shadowy paths of Ashenvale forest.

Green dragons are creatures of the Emerald Dream, the ethereal dreamworld that all life is tied to. From there the green flight watches over nature, often assisted by the night elven druids. The dragons and druids work closely together within the dream where they can control the ebb and flow of nature and influence the evolutionary path it takes. Greens are, like the other flights, highly intelligent and always striving to learn more about the world they were entrusted to protect, fretting out the mysteries of creation and life – but keeping all such secrets hidden within the Emerald Dream. As a result, the greens are often the least interested about happenings in the mortal realm and must often have any major events brought to their attention by the dragons of other flights.[citation needed] Ysera and her dragonflight consider the real world to be just an illusion.

Dragons of the green flight are highly reclusive, and the most difficult to find on the mortal realm. The green dragonflight is a peaceful, meditative society and most greens spend their time in quiet contemplation and the study of dreams, interacting with creatures of myth and illusion. A surprisingly swift flight, they often move quickly, teleporting through the dream to wherever their thoughts lead. Time is meaningless inside the Dream and as a result, the green dragonflight is extremely long-lived. Ysera’s consorts in particular almost never emerge and are effectively immortal.

Green dragonkin are sometimes referred to as Emerald, Jade or Veridian. When taking humanoid form, most green dragons prefer to transform into kaldorei, given their relationship with Archdruid Malfurion Stormrage, though human and quel’dorei guises are also common.

Green dragons cry a lot right before they die, and their teardrops crystallize into green gemstones.


Members of the green dragonflight occasionally have names ending in “us” for males, or “ra” for females. Sometimes terms relating to sleep and dreams find their way into their names as well.
