How To Get Skins & Armors For Winding Slitherdrake?

The full body armor will be available from the Valdrakken Accord faction. Currently, you can't buy it on the PTR because it's not available but it will be available once patched 10.1 launches. So you will be able to add body armor to your Slitherdrake from the get-go if you have the renown level with the Valdrakken Accord. On the patch 10.1 PTR, they're not going to add a ton more customizations. Since there are absolutely loads already, it is really nice to see the original colors coming in and being utilized by the older renowned. So as soon as that patch launches on day one of 10.1, you can go over to those renowned vendors and buy these skin colors for yourself. 


How To Get Winding Slitherdrake In Dragonflight 10.1?

Loamm Niffen is one of the brand new major factions of patch 10.1 Embers of Neltharion. Winding Slitherdrake is the brand new renowned reward coming for this major faction in the latest patch.

How To Farm Renown Fast In Dragonflight?

The fastest way to farm Renown in Dragonflight is the Word of a Worthy Ally buff that you get after reaching Renown 10 with one of the factions. This buff grants all alts in your account a 100% increase to the reputation earned well below Renown 10. You can actually use this buff to benefit your main this is because if you happen to reach Renown 20 on your alt by utilizing this initial 100% buff, you'll unlock the second rank of Word of a Worthy Ally and this time your main can benefit from it as well. You may be wondering but the buff only applies up to Renown 10. How is that going to help you hit Renown 20?


Almost all of the rep you farm is from one-time sources like the campaign pain or side quests. On your main, you can manage to reach roughly 15 renowned with every single faction after completing the entire campaign every side quest, and all available world quests. If you were to repeat all these activities on your alt, it stands to reason that the exact same rep sources would be enough to push you up to Renown 20 thanks to the 100% increase granted from ranks one to ten.
