Master Elemental Shaper Krixix
- Not to be confused with Krixx.
|Location||Crimson Laboratories, Blackwing Lair|
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.
Krixix is the only in-game source of the ability Smelt Elementium. He drops . 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, if you were in a raid, you can return to Blackwing Lair after a period of time and find that Master Elemental Shaper Krixix has respawned and is ready to drop it again.
