The start of the Netherwing dragon quest line. The last quest of this line will grant you Neutral faction with the Netherwing Drakes.

Completing this quest chain will complicate your ability to farm [Nether Dragonscales] (for Draconic leatherworking), and your ability to complete the quest chain that starts with "Quest:A Not-So-Modest Proposal".

Objectives

Mordenai at Netherwing Fields in Shadowmoon Valley wants you to feed 8 Mature Netherwing Drakes.

Quest Text

Something has them spooked, <race>.

<Mordenai points to the nether drakes flying overhead.>

They won't even come down to feed. I have seen several fall to the earth, dead from exhaustion before their bodies hit the ground.

We must save them! The Rocknail flayers that are found near the crystals are their natural prey. Kill flayers and take their carcasses. Place a carcass in the field and stand extremely still. As long as you do not make any aggressive motions, they will not attack you.

Progress

I cannot save them by myself, <Name>!

Completion

You are a kind and compassionate <race>, friend.

Rewards

  • 12650 XP (translated to 7Gold 59Silver)

Notes

The Rocknail Flayers drop a carcass object. The Rocknail Rippers drop a "Rocknail Giblet". You can mash 5 giblets into one "carcass" for the purposes of this quest.

Other precautions:

  • Do not have Lightning Shield going.
  • Classes with pets should make sure that their pets will not attack the dragon while it lands.

Completing this quest line will complicate your ability to complete select other quests. See the Ally of the Netherwing quest chain quest chain.

Quest progression

This quest chain introduces the player to the Netherwing faction.

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

Neutral 15 [70] Kindness
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.
You will find out later that Mordenai, who poses as a High Elf, is the son of Karynaku and Neltharaku.
Neutral 15 [70] Seek Out Neltharaku
After cutting down any number of Combat 15 [69] Rocknail Flayers and Combat 15 [68-69] Rippers, and feeding the drakes, Mordenai suggests that perhaps Neutral 15 [72+] IconSmall DragonNether Neltharaku, 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.
Neutral 15 [70] Neltharaku's Tale
Neltharaku asks you to hear its tale.
Neutral 15 [70] Infiltrating Dragonmaw Fortress
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.
Neutral 15 [70] To Netherwing Ledge!
Returning, you find that Neltharaku has indeed come up with a plan. To the southeast lies Netherwing Ledge, a location abounding with [Nethervine Crystal]s. He believes that he can infuse these with enough of his own essence to break the control of the Dragonmaw.
You fly down to Netherwing Ledge. Despite the strong Dragonmaw presence, you collect a number of these crystals.
Neutral 15 [70] The Force of Neltharaku
Neltharaku eagerly enchants these, and passes you the result: an [Enchanted Nethervine Crystal].
You use this crystal on the Combat 15 [69-71] IconSmall DrakeNether Enslaved Netherwing Drakes at Dragonmaw Fortress, and in turn help newly freed drakes against their former captors.
Neutral 15 [70G5] Karynaku
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.
Neutral 15 [70G5] Zuluhed the Whacked
The one who holds the [key], 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.
Neutral 15 [70] Ally of the Netherwing
Karynaku offers to return you to Mordenai. You are fêted again, and declared an Ally of the Netherwing!
