This is part of the Freedom for All Creatures quest chain, which will eventually award the player with a baby sprite dragon pet, very cute and highly desired. The chain starts with  in Feralas.
How to Get This Quest Edit
You will need:
The can be made by an alchemist, either find someone with alchemy to make them or check the Auction House and buy them there. Return to Quentin at the Mirage Raceway in Thousand Needles once you have them.
The Moonweavers, huh? Most intriguing. I wish the sprite darters could truly appreciate what it means to have those two look after them. They are both quite capable.
So, they gave you the egg as a gift. Well, then you should be responsible for it for as long as you desire. It appears it's almost ready to hatch, but we should ensure it's healthy and no damage has been done to it.
I only need two elixirs of fortitude for a small spell to protect the egg. I have the rest of the components here with me.
The longer I stay here, the more tempted I am to partake in these races, <name>. Truly boggling...
Have you found the elixirs yet? Once I can tell if the egg is going to be healthy or not, I'll return it to you to hold onto until it's prepared to hatch.
Let me know.
Wonderful. These will do nicely. Give me a moment to mix together my components and we shall see how well this egg is going to do.
