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.

For those of you who are Alliance, I've detailed the quest chains that lead up to this pet here, at wowhead.

[u]Horde Directions[/u]

Apothecary Furrows is inside Cliffspring Hollow (cave) located at 56.86, 31.28 in Darkshore.

For those on foot, the ramp up to the cave is located at 56.20,27.20.

Enter the cave, turn left and follow the ramp down, and take a left at the bottom of the ramp. He's up on the ledge, standing next to the table, to the left as you enter that part of the cave.

Here is a list of quests to unlock The Shatterspear Invaders, assuming you haven't done any in Darkshore up to this point. It's pretty much all the quests you would normally encounter, but I did leave out the optional quests.:

Threat from the Water from Ranger Glynda Nal'Shea

The Last Wave of Survivors from Dentaria Silverglade

The Boon of the Seas from Serendia Oakwhisper

Buzzbox 413 from Wizbang Cranktoggle

No Accounting for Taste from Buzzbox 413

Buzzbox 723 from Wizbang Cranktoggle

If you have a horde char you just walk right into the cave and buy it.  You can clearly see the cave entrance on the map, then just go in through the poorly hidden waterfall entrance.

Bought from vendor? Easy! Will go pick that up quickly. Erm . . . nope :p A real pain to find at least as Horde. At cliffspring on the map there are 2 caves. You want the northern one. The path up to it is marked by torches. However, it looks like an ordinary cave full of low-level grels (this is what confused me at first, I didn't bother to go in). However, a Horde-friendly apothecary is down there! Go right to the bottom and left (south) as another poster has said. Good luck!

Worth saving a stone for. This pet is a great sub for a Blossoming Ancient for those of us who don't want to spend real money for a pet. It's really handy against Kiryn in the celestial tournament.

I thought you guys should know that ever since MoP came out, withers doesn't seem grow back to normal size when he is near/in the water.

Wither's quest chain - I followed this guide and it was spot on, except you do NOT need to complete Boon of the Seas. You do have to complete all of the others though (I tried to do as few quests as possible.) Took about 1.5 hours of casual questing at level 85.

I think its kinda unfair that horde can buy him while alliance has to spend hours questing.
But since when has life been fair. :(

Withers has had his graphic drastically changed! Looks just like a treant now. I have to say I'll miss the old look-it was unique. :/

Thanks goodness it's a bug with 4.0.6-fix coming soon I hope!

Make sure you loot the troll leaders corpse after you kill him, because if you are like me and forget you will run around for hours trying to figure out why the withers quest won't open. Finally realized my mistake, went back, and killed the troll again and there was the item to start the quest!

Horde can have one heck of an adventure finding this cave without help. I left to Darkshore with my friend and we ended up falling into a swirly twirly pool of not really...that was a horrible ELF joke for the holiday season, but really we fell into a pool that took us underground. The Cave was past this swirly water part covered by a waterfall. The npc was not there however because the Allies can kill him for a quest. He repops. Look for his Apocathary table. He spawns there. GL!

The H/S breed of withers feels perfect to me. Teldrassil Sproutling with B/B breed seems worse off. Ruby Sapling also has some useful, and more powerful, breeds. The abilities goes really well with sunlight, but then you need to bring it on another pet which isn't perfect. Without sunlight the tree-ant pets are not really that powerful. Good if you like the slow and steady approach.

If you have Withers out while doing quests in Vashj'ir (the new underwater area) he never shrinks, just emotes every couple of minutes thats hes drinking water. :)

I just got him- You've got to do quite a few quests for the guy to give him to you. Sunsmoon's post on the wowhead "Remembrance of Auberdine" page is incredibly useful.

This is a pretty easy pet to get as a Horde character, not too many people in darkshore so...
Really worth the trip and I hope his animations get fixed soon :(

He complements my undead rogue really well (especially because I have herbalism) but it's sad to see him all shriveled up.
