Netherwing Reputation Guide Part 1: Hated to Neutral with Netherwing
I just finished downloading patch 2.1.0 and I am so excited about getting my own Netherwing Drake mount. The only bad part is I don’t know where I should start or how I can gain rep with the Netherwing faction. How do I?
This is probably the biggest and most well known addition to WoW 2.1.0. The good part is some of you may have already started this quest line pre-patch 2.1 but didn’t really know it. I know I did about the first 4 quests needed to get from Hated to Neutral.
Yep, that’s right….you start off at Hated and have to reach Exalted with Netherwing in order to get your 280% speed increase Netherwing Drake mount. It seems to be a pretty long and involved quest line with some quests being daily quests which means you can only complete them once per day (nice, eh?). Anyway, enough talking and let’s get down to it!
Hated to Neutral with the Netherwing Faction
The NPC that starts it all is named Mordenai and he can be found at the Netherwing Fields just east of the Sanctum of the Stars (Scryer base) in Shadowmoon Valley (coords 59,58).
The first quest you receive from him is called Kindness. All you have to do for this quest is to kill Rocknail Flayers in order to get eight carcasses to feed to the Netherwing Drake’s flying above the Fields.
After turning that in Mordenai gives you the quest Seek Out Neltharaku. Neltharaku, Netherwing Dragon, flys high about the Netherwing Fields so obviously you have to have a flying mount in order to reach him. He also patrols over the area so you may have to fly around a little bit to find him.
QUICK TIP: When trying to click on Neltharaku to talk to him it really is extremely difficult to click on him just right to talk to him. The best way I have found is to turn on “Click-To-Move” in the Interface options, click on him, and then you will be able to talk to him. Of course remember to turn this off after talking to him.
Next quest is called Neltharaku’s Tale. Pretty simple quest just listen to Neltharaku tell you a story.
Infiltrating Dragonmaw Fortress is the next quest Neltharaku will give you. Just head over to the Dragonmaw Fortress which is east of the Netherwing Fields and kill 15 Dragonmaw Orcs. The easier way to do this quest is to head over to the Netherwing Ledge and kill the Dragonmaw Peons. They are easier to kill and you can easily take down 3 or 4 at a time.
After completing that he will send you to do The Force of Neltharaku. You must rescue 5 Enslaved Netherwing Drakes using the enchanted Nethervine Crystal you receive at the start of the quest. The Drakes can be found all over the Dragonmaw Fortress.
Almost there…well to Neutral anyway! Karynaku is the next quest you have to do. It says Group quest but this part doesn’t need a group as all you have to do is speak with Karynaku at (69,61) which is inside the Dragonmaw Fortress.
She will then direct you to Zuluhed the Whacked. This is a Group quest that will need a 5 man group for or a good 4 man group. He has a Rain of Fire spell that can do some pretty good damage to the group so avoid this at all costs. You can also move Zuluhed to the other room in order to avoid the Demon that spawns out of the portal.
Turning this in will give you the quest Ally of the Netherwing which all you do is return back to Mordenai to get your rewards for this part of the chain. 42,000 reputation is the reward which will take you to Neutral with the Netherwing faction.
Since this is so long i’m going to be splitting this up into several different pages to help keep the length of the pages to a minimum. Keep an eye out for the next part of this Netherwing guide.
