Objective of



Viscous Fallout is quite easy to farm for a high-level rogue or druid, as you can reach him by simply dropping off the cliff as you enter the main Gnomeregan entrance.

It may also be useful to have a /target macro readily available. Doing so may allow the group to track and slay the mini-boss without having to fight through groups of enemies to find him.
