This follower closely resembles the character "Doc" Schweitzer from the webcomic Flintlocke's Guide to Azeroth. His first name, appearance and class all resemble Schweitzer's. He is apparently available to both Horde and Alliance, which is appropriate as he is an Alliance character who somehow joined a Horde guild. He can also be found as an npc in Twilight Highlands during a brief phase of a quest chain, speaking with Fargo Flintlocke.
I have found a number of other followers based on the main characters from Flintlocke's Guide to Azeroth and Flintlocke vs. the Horde, most of which use the same names as the characters they are based on.
In addition to Schweitzer, the Alliance also has Bloodrose and Kathrena Winterwisp. Fargo Hammersmith looks suspiciously like Fargo Flintlocke, and shows up as a result on a Wowhead search for "Flintlocke". Stingratchet looks pretty much exactly like Lowping, and shows up as a result on a Wowhead search for "Lowping". Kathrena also appears as a questgiver in Darkshore, and Fargo Flintlocke plays a major role in some Alliance quests in Twilight Highlands.
The Horde has Cheri, Gravy and Rok'tar. Gravy has also been working at the inn in the Valley of Honor since Cataclysm came out. Like Flintlocke, Rok'tar also has a tribute npc in Twilight Highlands, though the player has much less interaction with him than with Flintlocke. Calder Gray appears multiple times in Cataclysm content and bears a strong resemblance to the unnamed shadow priest in Flintlocke vs. the Horde (who was nicknamed "Bubbles" by the comic's fans).
Both comics were created by Dave "Fargo" Kosak, who now works at Blizzard as the Lead Narrative Designer for World of Warcraft. The comics were hosted on Gamespy, which has since been taken down.
Edit: The comics are no longer only available via Wayback Machine! The comics have been reposted at:
Edit: I was lucky enough to recruit the Doc today! Much like the time he joined a Horde guild in Gadgetzan, he seems to have joined my garrison with the help of copious amounts of alcohol.
"<The good doctor reeks like the floor of a tavern and wears a face like five miles of bad road. His color is washed out and he's making a deliberate effort not to be sick all over your feet.>
Hey Com-om-mander! <Urp> S'was one HELLUVA bender at Pinchwhistle last night. But I got home all-right for ready! Duty! Yessir. <Belch> Man you really did a number on this garrison since yessserday. With um. Spikes. Furs. And... snow? Did you do that? I'mma sit down."
Ok maybe the trekkie in me is just seeing things, but honestly when I saw the name with that portrait I thought this was a Star Trek reference. In Voyager the ships CMO is a holo doctor who is just referred to as "The Doctor" most of the time. Throughout the series The Doctor tries to give himself a name and goes through several of them while never really settling on one. One of the names he temporarily went by was Schweitzer. He also happens to be an older looking balding man like in the above portrait.
Please state the nature of the medical emergency.
Got him via Tavern/inn while searching for a Follower with Herbalism Trait.
Also available to horde.
All of you who are calling references are right... and wrong. You see, these Schweitzer references all harken back to the same real life man. Dr. Albert Schweitzer was a Medical Doctor, humanitarian, theologian, musician and philosopher who was essentially Protestantism's answer to Mother Theresa. He challenged secular views of Jesus-as-only-a-man, but saved his harshest criticism for Christian's treatment of the less fortunate.
Looking back on his life now, it is easy to view him as paternalistic, however he was considerably ahead of his time in his views of white privilege and African colonialism as well as multiple other topics. In the end Dr. Schweitzer gave his entire life to the treatment of disease in Africa; in part in a sense of Christian missions and in part as penance for the European pillage of that continent.
(All that being said, PLEASE do not turn this into some idiotic Atheism vrs. Christianity thread. I mentioned the latter only because it was so important to the man himself. Any such arguments go against the very spirit of his life.)
I recommend reading "The Problem of Peace". It is considered among the best speeches of all time.
As a discipline priest, if you wish to undertake the exorbitantly time-consuming task of farming him, then you should make sure you only select counter options to search for that are available to a disc priest.
On that note...
Dispel Magic (Magic Debuff) All priests
Dominate mind (Deadly minions) Disc/Shadow
Leap of Faith (Danger Zones) All priests
Mind Sear (Minion Swarms) Shadow/Holy
Power Infusion (Timed Battle) Shadow
Prayer of healing (group damage) holy/disc
Shadowfiend (Timed Battle) Shadow/Disc
In effect, timed battle is available to all three. Minion swarms, Massive Strike, Wild Aggro, and Deadly Spell are not open to a disc priest.
Happy hunting, and good luck.. you'll need it.
I was looking for Epic Mount and got him as an option. He came with Leap of Faith allso.
I have him on one of my Horde characters, via the Headhunter in the Garrison Tavern.
He is obviously a bit confused about his whereabouts, as I saw him make these remarks today...
"That was one hell of a bender last night. When did it start snowing in Shadowmoon?"
"Commander I don't know what contractors you're using but if you ask me this looks like a Horde base."
"Commander I uh - come closer - shhh - I think there's some Horde spies in our base."
"What's with all the skulls and spikes? It's like... does the King know about this?"
Made me smile.
For those of you trying to find out how to obtain this follower, through all the interesting facts,and information of what these followers were created from. I have found one thing that shows how to obtain this follower,
Blizzard and Community References in WoW
Before you click on that link and get lost in all the interesting facts that link has to offer, about half way down that link has this statement; "Many followers that can be recruited from the Inn are references to Flintlocke:" following that statement is 8 followers including this one. only
can be a follower to both the horde and the alliance factions. So in my assumption is that you must have an inn to be able to recruit any of the 8 followers.
Followers mentioned are;
法戈·弗林特洛克 / 布拉克·碎盾
血玫瑰 / 诺艾尔·哈里森
卡瑟娜·冬灵 / 萨曼塔·索顿
矮爆 / 劳伦斯·夏普
赫斯特·黑烬 / 切莉
科尔姆·破风 / 格莱维
迪尔本·铁枪 / 洛克塔尔
For those of you wondering how to recruit from the inn;
Guide to the Garrison Lunarfall Inn / Frostwall Tavern
There was a questions asked about the followers being temporary, no they are permanent once you obtain them.
If anyone has more information on how to obtain these followers i would be more than willing to update this thread happy hunting. :)
Race: Human (companion trait
Class: Discipline Priest
"Doc" is obtained through the
Lunarfall Inn/Frostwall Tavern
weekly recruitment. He has a chance to show up if you request a follower with one of his countering abilities, or any trait. He starts at level 90 uncommon. As with all followers, he will have 1 ability and 1 trait at uncommon, adding another random trait at rare, and an ability and a random trait at epic.
As noted through many other posts here, he's quite the many-layered pop culture reference, including the comic created by
Despite his constant comments about his confusion over being an alliance on the side of the horde, he is as loyal as any other soldier. He will however be drunker than a crossbreed between a Pandaren and a dwarf, at ALL times.
