The Klaxxi are fighting a war against their own people, attempting to restore sanity to the mantid by dethroning their fear-driven queen, while being regarded as heretics by the remaining dominated legions of their kin -- but can we really trust them? Our alliance with the Klaxxi may simply be a marriage of convenience, and as soon as the empress is dealt with and their house is in order the re-unified mantid may turn their sights back to the pandaren, and us.
For now, however, there are a few "evil" mantid champions that need to be dispatched, all of which share the following abilities:
- Blade Flurry – The bug will wildly jab and prod in a cone in front of itself, dealing massive damage to anyone caught in its swath.
- Tornado – Summons a tornado that travels in a circular path, triggering Harsh Winds for any players that get too close.
- Windsong – Buffs the mantid's attack and movement speeds and makes it immune to snares and roots.
You will find these buzzing bandits in the following zones:
- Gar'lok – Found in Dread Wastes, drops Eternal Warrior's Sigil.
- Kal'tik the Blight – Found in Vale of Eternal Blossoms, drops Bottled Tornado.
- Krax'ik – Found in Jade Forest, drops Needlefang Throatripper.
- Lith'ik the Stalker – Found in Townlong Steppes, drops Big Bag of Jewels.
- Nal'lak the Ripper – Found in Valley of Four Winds, drops Dynasty of Steel.
- Ski'thik – Found in Kun-Lai Summit, drops Rod of Ambershaping.
- Torik-Ethis – Found in Krasarang Wilds, drops Torik-Ethis' Bloodied Legguards.
