Seek out Karynaku at Dragonmaw Fortress.
It shames me to ask for your assistance once more, <name>, but you are my flight's only hope. Without my mate, the netherwing brood may die out completely.
Make your way to the top of Dragonmaw Fortress and find Karynaku.
We will be flying overhead. Should a break appear in their defenses, the might of the netherwing will swoop down to assist you.
It is the chains. They sap my power. The only way is to get the key from Zuluhed and unbind me.
Only the last quest in the chain actually affects your standing with this faction, but it advances you directly to Neutral.
As one of the quest-giving NPCs is perpetually in flight, a flying mount is required to complete the quests in this chain.
Ally of the Netherwing
- Wandering the wilds of Shadowmoon Valley, you come across Mordenai in the Netherwing Fields. Mordenai pleads that you help him feed the Netherdrakes, who have been disturbed by something.
- After cutting down any number of  and s [68-69] , and feeding the drakes, Mordenai suggests that perhaps s [72+] , the patron of the Netherwing dragonflight, can help you discover what the problem is. This does require a flying mount, and a search of the skies over Netherwing Fields.
- You are moved by his tale and offer to help.
- Now that he has hope, Neltharaku first asks that you stir up trouble with the Dragonmaw Fortress, to buy time for him to come up with a plan. You descend upon the fortress and slaughter a few of the orcs there.
- Returning, you find that Neltharaku has indeed come up with a plan. To the southeast lies Netherwing Ledge, a location abounding with . He believes that he can infuse these with enough of his own essence to break the control of the Dragonmaw. s
- You fly down to Netherwing Ledge. Despite the strong Dragonmaw presence, you collect a number of these crystals.
- Neltharaku eagerly enchants these, and passes you the result: an .
- You use this crystal on the [69-71] at sDragonmaw Fortress, and in turn help newly freed drakes against their former captors.
- Neltharaku then asks that you find and free his mate. Unlike the lesser drakes, Karynaku lies chained at the top of Dragonmaw Fortress.
- You reach the bailey of Dragonmaw Fortress, and ... arrange... a few moments to speak with Karynaku. She tells you that the chains themselves are sapping her power, keeping her there.
- The one who holds the , she tells you, is Zuluhed the Whacked, Chieftain of the Dragonmaw Clan.
- You challenge Zuluhed and defeat him, no mean feat. Grabbing the key from the body, you strip the chains from Karynaku.
- Karynaku offers to return you to Mordenai. You are fêted again, and declared an Ally of the Netherwing!
This is the Ally of the Netherwing quest chain.
- Though this quest is marked as a 5-man group quest, it is quite soloable. Just fly to the platform where Karynaku lies and finish the quest.
- Upon starting the next quest however, the level 72 elite boss will spawn, thus this is marked as being a 5-man quest.
