The Apexis were an ancient and now-extinct arakkoan civilization that resided in the Blade's Edge Mountains atop Vortex Pinnacle. They are called a now-extinct sect of arrakkoa. It is unknown what happened to them, although some quests say that the Apexis Guardians that the Apexis built turned against their masters. Their name lives on in the Apexis Crystals and Apexis Shards, which can be found all over the area around Ogri'la. Apexis Monuments, with four smaller relics surrounding them, are set in a number of places on the plateau.
The ogres of Ogri'la seek to gain an understanding of the Apexis Relics and wish to benefit from the observations of the adventurers who give their aid to Ogri'la.
The Apexis appears active in the alternate timeline in Warlords of Draenor.
