NeutralThe Day that Deathwing Came: The Real Story






Listen to Lucien Tosselwrench's version of the story.

  • Grow large enough to reach the clouds
  • Clouds searched (5)
  • Find Deathwing


Not only was Theldurin's story wrong, it was boring, unimaginative, and slow.

I'll tell you how things really happened on that day.


The end! No moral.


On accept:

First of all, it wasn't sunny out. It was cloudy when Deathwing appeared.
The camera tilts up to look at the sky, and Deathwing.
The cowardly dragon must have seen me, because he turned away and flew into the clouds.
"I'll find you in those clouds, you worm!" I yelled. "And then I'll throw you to Kalimdor!"
Lucien Tosselwrench yells: I'll find you in those clouds, you worm!
Lucien Tosselwrench yells: And then I'll throw you to Kalimdor!
Luckily, I had been tinkering with my world-shrinking device.
I decided to keep shrinking the world until I could reach the clouds.

Keep "shrinking the world" until...

Once the world was small enough, I started to hunt for Deathwing in the clouds.

Walk around the Badlands and look for clouds to search them. He has some random commentary during the process

  • Lucien Tosselwrench says: When I find that dragon, I'm gonna throw him to Kalimdor.
  • Lucien Tosselwrench says: Surprise, dragon! Aw, shucks.
  • Lucien Tosselwrench says: Where you at?
  • Lucien Tosselwrench says: Where are you, dragon?
  • Lucien Tosselwrench says: He can't have gotten far...
I had searched every cloud, but I couldn't find Deathwing.
It was then that I realized: he was hiding in the sun. I looked up.

Look up. Right-click the "sun" to reveal Deathwing.

The sun burned me bad, but I got my hands around his slimy neck.
Lucien gets knocked down to 10% health, but he is holding the "Cowardly Deathwing".
I summoned all my strength, faced west, and threw him to Kalimdor.

On completion, Martek the Exiled offers the followup:

Theldurin the Lost says: Wow, Lucien. You need to stop drinking RIGHT NOW.

The line "The end! No moral." is a shout-out to Achewood, about the only thing more surreal than this quest chain.


It is possible that the sun will despawn when clicked, without giving credit for the quest. If this happens, press the "exit vehicle" button to regain control of your character, then talk to Lucien again without abandoning the quest. Grow back to full size, click on a cloud or two, and the sun should reappear.
