Viscous Fallout is a level 28 elite water elemental mini-boss found in Gnomeregan. It drops and is often farmed for the Hydrocane.
Due to the radiation released into Gnomeregan, a portion of the city was taken over by radioactive oozes.
Viscous Fallout has coalesced from that mass, and formed its own consciousness, and its own agenda.
Viscous Fallout is quite easy to farm for a high-level rogue or druid, as you can reach him by simply dropping off the cliff as you enter the main Gnomeregan entrance. After killing him, you can stealth back to the front and reset the instance. Your lower-level party members don't even need to drop down, as they can roll for the item while staying on the top level.
Group leaders or groups unfamiliar with Gnomeregan may not realize this mini-boss exists, as it hardly differs in appearance from the rest of the mobs in the area. It may also be useful to have a /target macro readily available. Doing so may allow the group to track and slay the mini-boss without having to fight through groups of enemies to find him.
Where to start? Well, somebody would say all the way back to Warcraft I (aka Warcraft: Orcs & Humans or the First War), or maybe Warcraft II (aka Tides of Darkness or the Second War up to and including Wrath of the Lich King, Warcraft III is the best place to start. Also, this game then elicits more interesting questions. For instance, how Illidan Stormrage became so hated or where the Scourge started.
