falstad-store-thumbnailFalstad 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.



Voice Over Quotes

These are the voice over quotes repeated by Falstad when the player clicks on him multiple times. Here is a transcript courtesy of Ian Bates (aka TheRedShirtGuy).

”Agh? I’m yer’ dwarf!”
“The wind at ma’ back, and a monster ‘tween my legs! Errrr…”
“Do a barrel role, eh?”
“(fart noises) Ewww! Man alive, Swiftwing! Did you eat a ghoul again?”
“(Upset stomach rumbling) Look out below, we’ve got a sick gryphon here!”
“It’s nice ta’ get out of Ironforge. I dunna’ how those Bronzebeards can stand that cave.”
“Rumors of me’ death have been greatly exaggerated.”
“Um, you didn’t happen to see a little guy in a red shirt around here, did ‘ya? He’s always watchin’ me…”
“In my day, it took serious dedication to ride a gryphon. Nowadays, even gnomes are doing it!”
“Thank you for flying Wildhammer Aerie-lines. Your in-flight entertainment today will be The Perfect Storm-Hammer”
“Flight attendant, me’ mug is empty!”


Hero Quests

Basic Hero Quests

Basic Hero Quests are unique to each Hero. Usually they are focused on using a spell/ability “X” amount of times against any enemy Hero; and the last one asks you to play 10 games with your Hero.


Epic Hero Quests

The Epic Hero Quests are not available until you reach level 10, and until your Hero has completed the 3 Basic Hero Quests. These are not unique for each hero. All Heroes must complete the same Epic Hero Quests.
