The Apexis were an ancient and now-extinct arakkoan civilization that resided in the Spires of Arak and the Blade's Edge Mountains atop Vortex Pinnacle. 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 Crystals and Apexis Shards, which can be found all over the area around Ogri'la. Apexis Monuments, with four smaller relics surrounding them, are set in a number of places on the plateau.
Apexis technology is solar powered. The flying arakkoa 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 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.
