Apothecary Furrows is located within Cliffspring Falls in Darkshore. Note that he is an NPC that Alliance can kill for a quest item.
Alliance players must loot an item from Jor'kil the Soulripper after killing him for a quest that is given while on the Darkshore quest chain. This item will start another quest and unlocks Remembrance of Auberdine.
Upon summoning this companion it will be taller than a gnome, but over time it will shrink to the size of the Teldrassil Sproutling. If it is near a body of water while in its smaller state, it will emote "Withers absorbs the water, growing back to full size" and grow back to its original size.
Would it be unkind of me to withhold water from Withers just so I don't feel so short standing next to him? Ah, who am I kidding. I could never be that cruel. Drink to your heart's content, thirsty one! And rust—er, drink to your heart's content, too, Mechanical Yeti!
