This death knight-only flying mount can be purchased from Dread Commander Thalanor in Acherus: The Ebon Hold for 850. This is the starting price without the discounts based on the death knight's reputation with the Knights of the Ebon Blade.
- Because all death knights start as friendly with the Knights of the Ebon Blade, the actual starting price is only 850. There is a gradual decrease in price each time the player increases their reputation level with the faction, eventually bringing the price down to 680 at Exalted.
- This is the first and only class-specific flying mount (except flight forms, as they are not technically "mounts"), and one of the unique perks of the hero class. This is the second flying mount that scales with riding skill, as The Horseman's Reins was technically the first mount to scale with both ground skill and flying skill.
- For anyone concerned about gold, simply waiting a bit after reaching max level, when quests give gold instead of experience, makes getting this mount much more affordable.
