The flying arakkoa[1] also called winged arakkoa[2] are a type of arakkoa that can fly, unlike the arakkoa cursed by Sethe. The flying arakkoa worship the sun goddess Rukhmar and are known as the Adherents of Rukhmar.

At the height of their power, the regal arrakoa plot atop their high peaks, well out of the reach of the brutal Shattered Hand orcs and the wingless outcasts below.[1] The arakkoa gaze out from these treacherous perches, watching their land like incarnate gods ... and paying homage to the blessed sun by burning the "low races" alive.[3]

The Adherents are searching for Apexis artifacts across Draenor to use their technology against the Arakkoa Outcasts. They claim it is theirs by the will of Rukhmar, but in truth they found sites such as the Apexis Excavation by accident.


  • These arakkoa were likely foreshadowed by Kokorek in A [65] Primal Magic (both removed in the TBC beta).

  • The split of the arakkoa race may be inspired by the UrSkeks in Jim Henson's 1982 fantasy movie The Dark Crystal, though both groups resemble the film's Skesis.
