The Mantaxx are a praying mantis race that are really intelligent. These creatures once existed in the world of Azeroth 10,000 years ago at the end of the War of the Ancients and remained trapped in the Emerald Dream.
10,000 years ago at the end of the War of the Ancients, the Mantaxx existed in three large factions in the world of Azeroth. When the Well of Eternity imploded, due to it being too weak when Sargeras tried to enter through a portal fueled by the Well's energies, the Mantaxx were all brought inside the Emerald Dream by the Green Dragonflight to be protected.
The Mantaxx will be featured in the seventh expansion, World of Warcraft: Emerald Dream. While living in the Emerald Dream, the Blue Mantaxx and the Red Mantaxx never gotten along for a very long time while the Green Mantaxx remained neutral and never gotten involve with both of these factions.
Alliance and Horde adventurers encounter both the Blue Mantaxx and Red Mantaxx factions in two separate places in the Eye of Ysera. After gaining their trust, the Blue Mantaxx joined the Alliance and the Red Mantaxx joined the Horde. Both factions were given access to leave the Emerald Dream and began to resettle in Azeroth once again. During their return, the Blue and Red Mantaxx would learn how to become Paladins, Priests, Shamans, or Warriors.
