Kill the alpha drake is a level 45 event that occurs in Archen Foreland.

A fisherman wants to take his pack bull to drink in the lake but is afraid of pirate ambushes. You promise to protect them, and Lionscout Kealin, who overhear your conversation, follows. A large Alpha Drake appears and swallows the fisherman, while the bull runs to take shelter uphill. You have to kill the drake with Kealin's help, preferably before it digests the fisherman.

The drake puts down poison pools and summons Regurgitated Drake Food, low level enemies that are useful for rallying off of. It eats players like the fisherman, but this doesn't do any damage, and merely disables them for a few seconds. It expels eaten players in a poison pool.

The fisherman is very confident that the player will protect him.
