Hydraxian Waterlords

These elementals have made their home on the islands east of Azshara. Sworn enemies of the armies of Ragnaros.

The Hydraxian Waterlords are elementals that have made their home on the islands east of Azshara. Sworn enemies of the armies of Ragnaros. Historically servants of the Old Gods, the four Elemental Lords served the gods with undying loyalty. The minions of Neptulon the Tidehunter were numerous and mindless. It is not yet known how Duke Hydraxis broke free of his lord's control (if indeed he has), or what is his ultimate goals are, but the Water elementals are the only elementals that do not attack the mortal races with abandonment.

Located on a remote island in the far east of Azshara, Duke Hydraxis offers some quests. The first two require killing various elementals in Eastern Plaguelands and Silithus. Increased faction with the Waterlords opens up additional quests leading into the Molten Core. Any items obtained from the Hydraxian Waterlords, are obtained from its various quests.

Completing the questline allows players to obtain [Aqual Quintessence] used to douse the runes found near most bosses in Molten Core. This is required to summon Majordomo Executus, the penultimate boss, and, after his defeat, to summon Ragnaros himself. Since there are seven runes, any raid needs at least seven players that bring a quintessence if they wish to finish the instance. Since most of the questline takes place within Molten Core, any raider can complete this task with little more than some traveling and an Upper Blackrock Spire run.


Repuation is gained through slaying the following elemental enemies of the waterlords.Reaching revered status with the Hydraxian Waterlords allows players to obtain the [Eternal Quintessence], which replenishes itself and thus eliminates the need to return to Hydraxis to obtain a new quintessence every week.
