A step-by-step guide to getting both the Blazing Hippogryph mount and the Ethereal Portal item in WoW Dragonflight.
How To Get Blazing Hippogryph & Ethereal Portal in WoW Dragonflight

There is a tonne of content in the WoW Dragonflight Embers of Neltharion (10.1) update, from a massive new zone called Zaralek Cavern to a new World Boss, the Aberrus Raid, and more. However, no World of Warcraft player has ever said no to more mounts or toys, which is where the WoW Dragonflight Blazing Hippogryph mount and the Ethereal Portal come into play.

This guide explains exactly how you can get your hands on the Blazing Hippogryph mount and the Ethereal Portal toy, including the exact start and end dates/times for the promotion on Twitch, so let's jump in.

If you want to get the Ethereal Portal toy in WoW Dragonflight, you simply need to watch four (4) hours of World of Warcraft on Twitch between the following dates and times:

  • Start Time: May 2nd, 10:00 a.m. PDT
  • End Time: May 9th, 9:59 a.m. PDT

To get WoW Dragonflight Twitch drop rewards, players must link their Twitch account to their Battle.net account. You can do so by heading over to this page. An important note is that anyone who has changed their password or made any changes to their Twitch or Battle.net account recently will have to relink their account. This pertains not only to the Ethereal Portal, but also to the Blazing Hippogryph mount.

Some players have already received the Blazing Hippogryph mount. This is due to an error on the part of Blizzard, who explained: "Players who previously received the mount will keep the mount, and they’ll also get the toy. This may require logging out and back in."

For the rest of us, we just have to watch any Dragonflight stream on Twitch.tv for at least four (4) hours between the following times:

  • Start Time: May 9th, 10:00 a.m. PDT
  • End Time: May 17th, 10:00 a.m. PDT

Yes, you can jump around between streams, as you do not have to watch one particular stream to amass the four hours required for this WoW Dragonflight Twitch drop.

FAQs on WoW Twitch Drops

If you would like to know more, then we've got you covered in our dedicated WoW Dragonflight Twitch Drops article. Further, Blizzard has provided a string of handy FAQs about Twitch drops for World of Warcraft players, which you can read below.

Q. How do I link my battle.net and Twitch accounts?

A. Sign into your Battle.net account at https://account.battle.net/connections and click the Connect link for Twitch, then follow the instructions to sign-in and link your Twitch account to Battle.net.

Q. What devices can I use to earn and claim drops?

A. You can earn and claim drops using your PC/Mac web browser or on the Twitch app for Android or iOS. Twitch apps on game consoles, smart TVs, and other TV apps do not support drops.

A. You can earn progress towards a drop on any eligible channel in the World of Warcraft category on Twitch.
