Kalimdor Cup Guide
Kalimdor Cup is a recurring Dragonriding racing event in Azeroth. Players complete a total of sixteen races spread across Kalimdor to earn badges and unlock rewards.
What's Kalimdor Cup?
Kalimdor Cup is a bonus event that revolves around Dragonriding races in Kalimdor. Kalimdor Cup does not mean you can freely dragonride in Azeroth.
When Will Kalimdor's Cup Be Up on Live Servers?
Kalimdor Cup is available from August 15, 2023 through August 28, 2023, on live servers.
Who Can Participate in Kalimdor Cup?
Kalimdor Cup is available to all players at Level 30 and above. You do not need to own Dragonflight or have Dragonriding unlocked to participate in the event.
Where Can You Pick Up the Kalimdor Cup Intro Quest?
Speak to Lord Andestrasz in Stormwind on top of the northwestern tunnel out of the Trade District if you are an Alliance player. Horde players can talk to him by the northern zeppelin tower in Orgrimmar. Alternatively, you can find him in Valdrakken near the Rostrum of Transformation.
Kalimdor Cup Dragonriding Mounts
You will not be riding your Dragon Isles Drake to complete the courses. Instead, you will receive a Riders of Azeroth drake for the races. There are 5 variations of the mounts:
- Riders of Azeroth Drake;
- Riders of Azeroth Proto-Drake;
- Riders of Azeroth Slitherdrake;
- Riders of Azeroth Velocidrake;
- Riders of Azeroth Wylderdrake.
Kalimdor Cup Currency
Riders of Azeroth Badges are the main currency of the event. You earn them by completing Dragonriding races in Kalimdor and turn them in for various rewards.
How Many Riders of Azeroth Badges Can You Earn?
You can get a total of 3 badges per type of race.
- Bronze gives 1 badge;
- Silver gives 2 badges;
- Gold gives 3 badges.
There are 3 modes, so the total of badges you can acquire per race is 9 on Gold. With a total of 16 courses, you can altogether collect up to 144 badges. A quest rewarding 10 badges will bring the total to 154.
