The quest starts when you have defeated Big Will on Fray Island. You have to venture to Chillwind Point (upstream from the Southshore river) and speak to Bath'rah the Windwatcher in a hut on the left hand side of the river at the remains of Troll Temple.

He will give you notes on what you have to get: 8 [Liferoot] (acquired by an herbalist, Auction House or a vendor), 30 [Witherbark tusks] (for which a good grinding spot is by Zul'Farak Ruins in Stranglethorn Vale) and finally 1 [Essence of Exile], which is collected by obtaining 8 [cresting], [thundering] and [burning charms] and placing them in the pot by his hut.

When you have collected all the quest items, return them to Bath'rah and he will begin the summoning of Cyclonian. You will then need to loot his body and give the heart to him and you will complete the quest.
