Fire Drake icon

Fire Drakes are elite units of the Goblin faction who appear as young, wingless dragons. They inflict fire damage, and are both summonable by Gorkil the Goblin King when he reaches level 10, and by the player via the Dragon's Nest expansion of the Goblin fortress. They can also be trained from a Fire Drake lair that has been taken control of using Untaimed Allegiance.

In The Rise of the Witch-king, a group of three small Fire Drakes also became available to the Goblin faction, known as a Fire Drake brood.

Outside of the Goblin faction, these monsters are found at Fire Drake Lairs, in places such as Mount Doom.
