Okay, what if a dragon tames us and it functions exactly the same as a pet gameplay but in-setting they're bossing us around?

Idk about you all, but I'm DEFINITELY dumb enough to be tamed by a dragon.

You mean a "drakeadon" of the blue flight, of the red flight, etc?
Yup! Drakeadon model, but colours that match other flights. We currently just have a chromatic one, which was created as part of Nefarian's experiments to create a chromatic flight. But it's conceivable that colours corresponding to other flights existed in Neltharion/Deathwing's earlier experiments - seeing that they've decided he was already performing experiments on the Dragon Isles even before he became Deathwing.

What made me decide to post is that I want to say that while I'm not in support of dragons being tameable, I hope we see a revamp of the "drakeadon" model in this expansion, with more colours. The dragon isles would be the perfect place for it. The original appeared in BWL as a chromatic version that was the result of Nefarian's experiments into creating a chromatic dragonflight. The theme of Dragonflight reveals that dragon experimentation was carried out by Nefarian's father, Deathwing, at a much earlier time point and it's perfectly feasible that non-chromatic versions of the drakeadon existed on the Dragon Isles. Cross fingers :)
As I said earlier - I'd be in favor if they make it so we have a quest of some sort where we learn to befriend dragons, not tame them.

Like, gameplay wise, they act as pets, but lore wise, they act like our dragonriding dragon - they're dragon companions who help us as equals.
