Master Elemental Shaper Krixix is a level 60 elite goblin found in Blackwing Lair within Blackrock Mountain.

He is the former apprentice of a high elf, Earthcaller Franzahl. Krixix spent his life trying to contact the Old Gods. A decade ago, as both master and apprentice were studying the fissures of Darkwhisper Gorge, an earth elemental sprung out of the ground and took Krixix away.[1]


Krixix is the only in-game source of the ability Smelt Elementium. He drops  [Goblin's Guide to Elementium]. Pre-patch 3.0.8, it was obtainable by having a priest mind control him, then casting a spell that teaches the ability. After the patch, he drops a book which teaches the skill. Only one book drops and only one Miner can obtain and learn it. However, Krixix is not linked to any bosses and will respawn after s a 30 minute soft reset.
