Role: Ranged Assassin
Falstad was originally introduced in the novel Warcraft: Day of the Dragon (reprinted in the WarCraft Archive).
During the Second War, the old Horde captured Alexstrasza (the Queen of the Red Dragonflight) and enslaved her brethren to use them as aerial siege weapons against the Alliance. Rhonin was sent by Krasus and the Council of Six to infiltrate Grim Batol in order to rescue the dragon. Falstad Wildhammer assisted Rhonin the mage and Vereesa Windrunner in that mission, and earned the respect of the Red Dragonflight.
Throughout World of Warcraft until the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, Falstad was an NPC located at the Aerie Peak in The Hinterlands. In the Cataclysm expansion, the NPC was moved to the throne room of Ironforge as one of the members of the Council of Three Hammers.
