The Emerald Dream is a new zone in World of Warcraft Dragonflight, and it’s a beautiful place to explore. However, it’s not accessible by flight masters. So how do you get there?

WoW Dragonflight: How to Unlock the Emerald Dream Portal in Valdrakken

Instead of relying on flight masters, which surprisingly don’t offer direct transportation to the Emerald Dream, you can easily access this mystical realm through a portal located in the Emerald Quarter of Valdrakken. The precise coordinates are [63.0 57.6].

To unlock the Valdrakken portal, you need to take the long way to the Emerald Dream by using the portal in the Ohn’ahran Plains zone. Follow these steps:

  1. Acquire the quest “Emerald Welcome” from the Guardians of the Dream campaign.
  2. Progress through the questline until you receive the task to “Enter the Emerald Dream.”
  3. Find and speak to NPC Merithra inside the Emerald Dream.

Once you’ve completed this quest, the quick Emerald Dream portal in Valdrakken will be automatically unlocked for your character. The best part? This unlock is account-wide, so you only need to go through the process once.

Now that you have the Valdrakken portal at your disposal, traveling between the Emerald Dream and Valdrakken becomes a breeze. No more tedious back-and-forth journeys, whether you’re picking up quests, visiting the auction house, or venturing into Mythic dungeons.

As Season 3 of World of Warcraft: Dragonflight unfolds, relying on portals has become increasingly common, especially with the inclusion of “legacy” dungeons in the Mythic+ pool. Thankfully, nearly all of these dungeons have their own portals conveniently located in a new area. While Dragon Riding provides an exhilarating mode of transportation, sometimes convenience takes precedence.

By utilizing the Valdrakken portal, you can bid farewell to tedious flight paths and embrace a more efficient approach to exploring the Emerald Dream. Soar through the skies, delve into the depths of the zone, and conquer its challenges without wasting time on unnecessary travel.
