As this post covers unreleased content, general spoiler warning if you don't want to read about 7.2 quest and lore.
To acquire this mount, you will need to do the Lich King's bidding.
The Lich King (
The Helm of Domination shows me many things, Deathlord. I have seen a vision. Thousands of undead, marching through the far reaches of Northrend, in search of a great power.
Yet when I reach out through the cold tendrils of endless ice, I sense nothing there.
Go now, to the far north of Icecrown, and I will show you what I have seen.
It was here that I saw the undead, swarming across an icy shelf, seeking a prize, coveted by Arthas.
Look ahead, do you see it?
The bones of a dragon, most ancient, and powerful beyond reckoning.
Yet all that remains here is the sea, and I sense no trace of undead. Find a member of the bronze flight, the tenders of history, do not be merciful.
You head to Wyrmrest Accord and start interrogating members of the Bronze Dragonflight (
). They won't tell you much and kick you out. However, the Lich King tells you to visit the Ruby Sanctum. Here you must infiltrate the sanctum and find a record of the great dragon who fell in Icecrown.
The reds know something... they hide their secrets in the Ruby Sanctum beneath Wyrmcrest.
A record of their history, must lurk somewhere in this sanctum. Spare who you will, or slay them all. The choice is yours.
There is a Feat of Strength,
, for slaughtering all the dragons and essentially leading to the extinction of the Red Dragonflight.
Thanks for your interest in the Death Knight story! The new Lich King certainly has some... unique requests.
To answer your lore questions, the whelps you see here, as Senegos mentioned, are likely the last whelps we will see, unless the dragons figure out a way to make more eggs. Some dragons are still in whelp form, though, as they have not matured yet.
The Ruby Sanctum itself was destroyed by Krasus, but some of the dragonflights have chosen to rebuild their sanctums. As you see in the Death Knight quest, the Ruby Sanctum has been completely regrown, and has no traces of any lingering twilight influence.
Once you've acquired the book, the Lich King reveals the dragons do not want you to know about it because the bones of a fallen dragon are still filled with life-giving energy. In the hands of the Lich King, this dragon would be used for corruption and undeath.
You are empty inside, just like me.
Fly now, into the north. Find this glacier, and your destiny.
Continue north, Deathlord. Into the Blizzard. And hold tight to your reins.
It is here. I can feel it. Your supplies have lightly frozen, I sense feral undead, buried in the ice. It seems the time has come, to test your will.
Of course, should you fail to survive, know that I shall claim Acherus for my own. Arthas may have sought revenge on the citadel, but I have... other plans.
Once on the frozen glacier, you will complete a scenario to eventually find and resurrect the dragon Kyranastraza (
). Undead are drawn to the bones of the dragon for its powers of life; kill the undead to absorb the life energy of the dragon. With that energy collected, you can harness and twist it into an Unholy Essence, used to raise the dragon. This part of the questline has some nice throwbacks to the
