What's the best way to get a Proto Drake? Any colour, I'm not looking for bragging rights here, I just like the design, but wasn't able to get one throughout Wrath.

Red or Violet are the "easiest" to get, in that theyre guaranteed, but take a lot of work. Time lost you MIGHT have a chance nowadays, but i still doubt it. Blue can MAYBE be farmed depending on class, and green you just have to be a lucky sumbitch. I finally got my Green just this tuesday night after 26+ months of eggs...

The droprate of the Green Protodrake from the egg has been increased in Cataclysm. I'd say work toward Glory of the Hero and Long Strange Trip while hatching your eggs weekly.Ten man Glory of the Ulduar Raider might be the absolute quickest way to do it, though, if you can get a group together of level 85 players who know the fights. It can be done easily in one night.

Bug your guildies into helping you get Glory of the Hero from Wrath heroics for the Red Proto-Drake. It requires the least amount of work to get and you'll see plenty of them flying around your capital city, but the other protos are from raid metas and lucky drops(or in the case of the Time Lost, spawns).

Your best options are probably Blue, Green, and Red, presuming your guild doesn't do mount runs in Ulduar.Blue: Heroic Skadi solo every day. It drops like 1.5% of the time though so it could take a while.Green: Oracles egg every three days. Took me forever but I have crappy luck. The droprate got buffed a bit and the time reduced now, so it'll probably take much less long.Red: Plenty of people are doing H. achivement runs now. Find a group that needs your class.Your other options are: The Ulduars (Rusted and Ironbound): Do Ulduar achievs. Like Red, but in a raid no one does anymore.Purple: What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been. If you haven't started this will take you a full year.Time Lost: Have fun camping!

@Andrew: I dont think the drop rate has been increased at all, its just since Cata they lowered the cooldown on the eggs from 7 to 3 days. Still, like i said, the RNG can be a bitch.I just looked it up and did the math, i got the achievement for the oracles on 12/28/08, so i probably started getting eggs maybe 2 weeks before that... with the lowered CD since cata.... ive hatched maybe 125 eggs to get mine. Probably a few less than that because i havent noticed my egg hatching for a day or two sometimes (altoholic stopped telling me about it).

@Cyno01I'm pretty sure they did up the drop rate; it was even in patch notes if I remember correctly.

It is now 5% instead of 2%.
