Conclave of Wind




With Deathwing's return, Al'Akir is once again free to walk the winds of Azeroth. He has become one of the Destroyer's staunchest and most powerful allies, and called the Conclave of the Four Winds, ancient wind elementals nearly as powerful as Al'Akir himself, to aid in the elemental invasion of his former home.

Al'Akir's temperament is that of the sky: calm one moment, and furious the next. But some few aspects of the Windlord can be said to be consistent. He possesses godlike power that will buffet and shake Azeroth if left unchecked - and he will not allow himself to be chained again.[2]

Dungeon Journal

Al'Akir the Windlord's personal lair, the Throne of the Four Winds, glides high among Skywall's boundless vistas. Now that the barriers of the Elemental Plane have been ruptured, Al'Akir is free to travel Azeroth's winds at his leisure. He has mustered his fiercest tempests to scour Uldum of life and seize control of the mysterious titan-forged Halls of Origination.


  • The Conclave of Wind – With Siamat, Lord of the South Wind, imprisoned by the Neferset tol'vir, Al'Akir's lieutenants are vying to fill the power vacuum that now exists in the Conclave of Wind. The remaining conclave members are Anshal, Lord of the West Wind, whose gales can heal allies or poison enemies; Rohash, Lord of the East Wind, whose tempests can grind the mightiest mountains to dust; and Nezir, Lord of the North Wind, whose frigid storms have claimed more lives than all other cardinal wind lords combined.
  • Al'Akir – Gifted with great intelligence and cunning, Al'Akir the Windlord once served as the foremost tactician in the Old Gods' horrific armies. In the wake of the Cataclysm, he has aligned with Deathwing and turned his godlike powers against many of the air elementals' ancient tol'vir nemeses.
