Field Marshal Snowfall is a dwarf located at The Scarab Dais in Silithus alongside Master Sergeant Fizzlebolt during the Call of the Scarab micro-holiday. Snowfall, along with his Horde counterpart Warlord Gorchuk, is a callback to the massive item funneling that took place during the War Effort to open the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj. As his gossip text hints at, players on the entire realm ended up focusing their efforts to get a single player his or her [The Scepter of the Shifting Sands] to bang the gong and start the war.
- On this day, many years ago, a hero by the name of Kalahad rang the Scarab Gong, opening the gates to Ahn'Qiraj and beginning a war the likes of which Kalimdor had never seen.
- Today, we celebrate the heroics of those past adventurers by returning to Silithus and walking in their footsteps.
- What's more: this is a competition between of the Horde and Alliance. Whichever group can earn more credits over the next 24 hours earns the right to fly their flag next to the gong for the rest of the year.
- How can I help the war effort?
- Disrupt the Twilight's Hammer camps, and strike at their Abyssal High Council!
- Slay the mighty silithid colossi that dwell in each of the three large silithid hives.
- Gather silithyst, a valuable red spice, for our faction.
- Venture into Ahh'Qiraj itself and deal with the qiraji and old god menaces that dwell inside!
- Even adventurers that prefer not to fight can participate by donating war supplies, in the form of meat, to our cause.
- Why are the items you sell so expensive?
- Yes, both the Medallion of Station and Ring of Lordship are expensive - far too expensive for any one person to purchase on their own.
- I suggest you team up with other adventurers and select a champion. Only one medallion or ring is required to summon the high-ranking members of the Abyssal Council - but many heroes will be required to defeat them.
- Good luck.
- When the Alliance takes the lead.
- Field Marshal Snowfall yells: We have taken the lead! For the Alliance!
