Ahn'Vekir, the First City


If the nerubian records are to be believed, then Ahn'Vekir was the first city of the Spider Kingdom, the first to be constructed in the darkness of Azeroth's underworld. When the great empire of Azj'Aqir, fell, refugees fled to the depths of Northrend, in time becoming the nerubian people. Though they dwelt for a time in the city of Ahn'Vekir, the nerubians eventually abandoned it entirely, leaving it to moulder in the darkness of the underworld.

While the nerubians may have abandoned the city in ancient times, it stirs with life once again. The Newbreed have arrived to plot evil anew in the home of their ancient ancestors, seeking to exploit the ancient relics and magical artifacts that were entombed in the city millennia ago. Many of the artifacts in the city are extremely powerful and deadly, and were considered too dangerous by the nerubians for use. The Newbreed have no such reservations.


Ahn'Vekir lies at the northern edge of the Shadow Web Caverns, beyond the valley of the Sundered Monolith.
