|Theater of operations|
The Apexis were an ancient and now-extinct arakkoan civilization that resided in the Spires of Arak, as well as Vortex Pinnacle in the region now called Blade's Edge Mountains. It is unknown what happened to them, although some quests say that the Apexis Guardians that the Apexis built turned against their masters. Their name lives on in the Apexis Crystal (item)s and Apexis Shards, which can be found all over Draenor. Apexis Monuments, with four smaller relics surrounding them, are set in a number of places on the plateau. Apexis ruins also seem to surround the Outcast city of Skettis, as well as locations within the Spires of Arak like the Nest of the Ravenspeakers and Lost Veil Anzu.
Apexis technology is solar powered. The Adherents of Rukhmar scour Draenor for artifacts left behind by this ancient society and use their technology in their war against the Arakkoa Outcasts. They claim it is given to them by the will of Rukhmar, but in truth they stumbled upon locations like the Apexis Excavation on accident.
The Apexis had blueprints for a flying "Temple in the Sky", but it is unclear if they ever actually built it. If the Temple in the Sky was built, that may be where they vanished to.
The ogres of Ogri'la seek to gain an understanding of the Apexis Relics and wish to benefit from the observations of the adventurers who give their aid to Ogri'la.
