The Fire Flight is one of the 11 flights in Flight Rising.
It is led by The Flamecaller and resides in the Ashfall Waste. The element's eye color is fiery orange. It is the 10th largest flight, the 2nd smallest, as of March 18, 2017.
AboutThe Ashfall Waste are metalworkers. They prefer to be as passionate and intense as the flames they coax. Of all the dragons, fire dragons are the most temperamental, and their red-hot fury knows no peers. Rare metal ores, weapons, statues and tools are their favored treasures.
The Fire Flight is located in the Ashfall Waste. The land consists of four parts: the Emberglow Hearth, Molten Scar, Blacksand Annex and the Great Furnace. The Waste is bordered by the Ice, Wind, Water, and Lightning Flight territories.
Two more locations, The Scorched forest, and the most recent, the Volcanic Vents, can be accessed in the Coliseum.
|In the northern region of fire, the magma vents are gentle and free of the volatile pressure troubling the rest of the realm. Small fiery pools form, attracting edible salamanders and fireflies and providing natural open-hearth furnaces, ideal for apprentice metalworking dragons. Able to supply both utility and sustenance in vast quantities, the Emberglow Hearth is a popular starting point for fledgeling lairs.|
|From above, the Molten Scar appears as a fiery, violent wound gouged relentlessly into the landscape. It reaches eastward and is comprised of disjointed tectonic plates that crash thunderously into one another as they drift on the liquid rock. Rare metals are revealed in this back-and-forth exchange, and the open gaps are alive with dragons eager to plunder the veins before the next collision knocks the unclaimed ore into the melting pot below.|
|This obsidian coastline is blanketed in flowing lava and a scalding steam-mist at the water's edge. The land is fluid and soft: an open canvas - unmolded clay needing a crafter's hand. The Annex beckons to those flights eager to make a lasting impression on the landscape and thus to cement their places by the Flamecaller's side. However, this builder's paradise is marred by inexplicable events and dreadful shapes moving deep in the pervasive mist.|
|Anchored into the thick, glassy obsidian by immense drills, a mighty platform perches over the crater of the continent's largest and most active volcano. The intricate architecture is shrouded in a billowing cloud of ash and acrid smoke, but the glowing lava powering the forge workshop highlights the fire-tinged silhouettes of the furnaces and smelters furthering the Flamecaller's efforts.|
Monsters and Familiars that can be directly related to the flight by their description and/or elemental affinity in the Coliseum.
Notable Flora, Fungi and Fauna
The following is strictly for edible items that have a description that can be clearly linked to the flight.
Consuming this flower gives dragons of the fire flight the sudden urge to channel their magic into projectile spheres of flame.
True to its name, the bites of the Fire Ant burn just like fire. Upsetting a hive can be painful, if not deadly.
Schools of this fish, seen from a distance, look almost like fire flickering in the water.
Fabled for its fire resistance, the elusive salamander only emerges from volcanic fissures when an eruption is nigh.
This wicked insect is immune to fire, so it often lures predators to their doom by flying through bursts of lava.
It's said that these peaches are sweetest when volcanoes are at their most active.
Though the spores of the Cindershroom indeed look like smoldering cinders, it's mostly harmless.
It may appear scorched and dead, but Cindervine thrives in fiery environments.
Able to thrive in incredibly hot waters, the Molten Goby itself is hot enough to singe tender palates.
When their numbers grow too large, Singed Lemmings run en masse into the mouths of volcanoes.
Crispy, crunchy, and extremely spicy in flavor, the firefly thrives wherever lava flows.
Catching a Lava Strider without also getting a mouthful of lava takes a bit of finesse.
While most bats are active at dusk, Ashfall Bats emerge from their caves as volcanic ash rains from the sky.
Burns just as quickly as a piece of tinder, but tastes much better if properly toasted.
Materials and Miscellaneous
Materials and other items that can be directly related to the flight by their description and/or appearance.
An ancient stone bearing the ancestral rune of the Flamecaller. Such a find should be kept as a prized possession.
The metal of this chest is scalding-hot. When handled it burns and sizzles, then goes cold.
A glowing fire rune; the sign of a true magical adept.
An orange jeweled armband, commonly worn by denizens of the Ashfall Waste.
A set of heat-resistant gloves, dimming spectacles, and a large smithing hammer.
A crudely-fashioned stuffed doll that resembles the Flamecaller. It is falling apart at the seams and quite warm to the touch.
A smouldering, unhatched fire egg. It is almost too hot to hold and is rocking back and forth constantly. Its cragged surface is pulsing with embers.
A delicate handheld harp. Will you play a song of ice... or fire? Perhaps both?
Powers and Abilities
Fire Dragons rule over the element of Fire, which has been described as hot flames. As proven by the Flamecaller and Fire Eggs, natural heat seems to be one of many possibilities. The element also appears to cause a lot of damage to its surroundings, as seen with the volcano of the Emberglow Hearth and the wildlife originating from there. Lava and glowing flames are a recurring theme.

Eggs & Nest
"A smouldering, unhatched fire egg. It is almost too hot to hold and is rocking back and forth constantly. Its cragged surface is pulsing with embers." - Unhatched Fire Egg
Fire eggs are rough and rock-covered. Bright lava sticks to cracks between the rocks. The eggs are sunk inside a pool of lava, bordered by pointed rocks.
The Flame Background features a rocky landscape with the sea behind it. A volcano and several rock pools bubble lava into the ocean. Wisps of smoke drift into the air, which is dark and ash-filled. This is because of the volcano or due to the smoke coming from the fire.
Population and Players
As of January 15th 2016, the Fire Flight has 12,836 members.
The Flameforger's Festival is the elemental holiday of the Fire Flight. It takes place near the last of August.
