Notes[edit | edit source]
- When escorting Courier Falken, you will be ambushed by additional pop-up groups of White Mantle at points along the route. In Hard mode, the groups may also contain Jade Cloaks.
- If he appears in the zone, he will automatically start running to his destination, leaving you no choice but to escort him (or leave him to die).
- Regardless of his survival, White Mantle pop-ups on his scheduled route will spawn (and must be Vanquished, as with other event-related foes in other areas).
- In normal mode, escorting Courier Falken through North Kryta Province takes about eight minutes.
- This quest-like-event is repeatable but Courier Falken will not spawn in every instance.

- The quote "Are You Okay?" could be a reference to Terry Bogard from the Fatal Fury series or to Talim from the Soul series.
- The spawning quote that begins, "Delivery man, delivery man..." is a parody of the Spider-Man theme song.
- The quote "A courier's passion... is burning red!" is a reference to Mobile Fighter G Gundam's quote "This hand of mine is burning red!"
