Before the Cataclysm, Hydraxis was a quest giver located on an island northeast of the Ravencrest Monument in Azshara.

Duke Hydraxis revealed in his quests that the "pure" Elementals of Water are seeking to do battle against the other elements, and were willing to let mortals prove themselves to be worthy of fighting one of their grandest enemies, Ragnaros the Firelord and his servants in the Molten Core.

I will fulfill this duty until the Burning Legion is driven from this world and the future of Azeroth is secured. I am yours to command, Farseer.[3]

N [50WQ] The Lords of Water
Greetings mortal. The naga have committed a grand crime against the power of my master, Neptulon.
The magic of the Tidestone is the magic of titans. Even now, that ancient power holds him at bay just as it holds back the sea. However, it cannot hold back his justice.
Will you join me in quelling these naga for their defiance of the great Neptulon?
Gossip I am ready.
Come, little Champion, and let us drown our enemies in the tides of justice!
  • Drown in the tides of vengeance!
  • Let the waves consume you!
  • Pathetic. Nothing more than a ripple!
  • Neptulon reigns upon you!
  • Splashing!
  • Water you waiting for? Face me!
