The Elemental Rulers bear mere mortals little affection, as evidenced by the periodic elemental invasions. Indeed, elementals are frequently found in areas known for the worship of the Elder Gods. However, there is a notable exception - Duke Hydraxis and his followers. Duke Hydraxis is a powerful water elemental; he and his followers are the only elementals who do not attack mortals on sight. Hydraxis is struggling against the other elementals, especially the Firelords who inhabit the Molten Core. For adventurers who prove themselves worthy, Hydraxis can be a powerful ally. In fact, his assistance is crucial for any wishing to test themselves against the might of Ragnaros, the great dragon of the Core.
Duke Hydraxis resides on the southeastern-most island in the Bay of Storms, Azshara, at the edge of the Great Sea (near 79, 73).

Reputation from Kills
As might be expected, Duke Hydraxis looks kindly on those who attack his enemies. The Air & Earth Elementals in Silithus, Elementals in the Eastern Plaguelands, and Greater Obsidian Elementals in Burning Steppes yield 5 rep per kill through Friendly. Lord Incendius in Blackrock Depths yields 10 rep through Honored. Pyroguard Emberseer in Upper Blackrock Spire yields 20 rep through Honored.
The main source of Hydraxian reputation is striving against the Firelords of the Molten Core. Most Molten Core bosses yield 100 rep (None for Executus, Golemagg 150, and Ragnaros 200) at any level of reputation. Other mobs yields reputation through Honored, including Molten Destroyers and Lava Packs (40 rep) and Molten Giants, Ancient Core Hounds, Lava Surgers, and Firelords (20 rep).
The Hydraxian questlines lead you to a rare-quality ring and the ability to douse the runes in Molten Core. Dousing all the runes summons Majordomo Executus. Defeating the Majordomo's guards forces him to surrender and summon Ragnaros. Those who are not raiding the Core will find it difficult to gain reputation with Duke Hydraxis. However, such folk really have no need to gain Hydraxis' favor, either.
