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 Edit

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!
