Dragon? Come on guys. If you're going to post a huge spoiler on the main page, at least get the mythology right.

It isn't about "getting the mythology right". It's an exclamation about the immediate artistic visual. To anyone not already familiar with the WoT saga, what they see is a woman in a white dress with swirls of power around her, opposing a dragon. That is why the caption blurb reads as it does.

So basically this is a paragraph intended for non-WOT readers that gives away key parts of a character's story arc? You're right, mentioning Egwene's role as rebel Amyrlin protecting the Tower from the Seanchan is totally an exclamation about the immediate artisitc visual. Super helpful, man, thanks.

I really don't see non-WOT readers being interested in downloading the cover to the e-book of 12th book of a series they haven't read. Obviously, the post is intended for WOT readers, so the post should use WOT jargon.
