A vulture drake, also known as a deathwing, was a type of drake that had been corrupted by the Shadowfell.[1]


The drakes were large, menacing reptiles that could be used as mounts. The vulture drake was a gaunt winged creature with taut skin and a skeletal physique. It had long and unwieldy wings.[1]


A vulture drake would prefer to focus on a single target, swooping in and allowing itself to sustain a hit, since this would enable it to use its death shriek. Once a target was eliminated, the vulture drake would take off again in order to repeat the process.[1]


The vulture drake could commonly be found in the Shadowfell.[1]
