It is unlikely that this will be the final name for this item. "Horrific (item type)" seems to be the place-holder Blizzard is using until they are ready to release more information about 4.3 raid items.
Or they are just really lazy.
The flavor text is so sad...
Drops off of Warmaster Blackhorn in Dragon Soul (if the flavor text didn't make that obvious enough). This is pre-heroic BiS for both enhance shamans and hunters thanks to the 2 red sockets and the agility bonus. With crit and haste as the secondary stats, this is perfectly itemized for hunters.
Don't worry Blackhorn, your drake will be back.
Just wait for Tuesday maintenance and resets.

Delicate Chimera's Eye

The flavor text is very funny if you've only done this fight on normal and LFR modes. Blackhorn's mount,
, will cause void-zones on the ship until it is dps'd down to 25%, when it simply abandons it's master. On heroic mode, however, it does fight alongside Blackhorn until it dies.
To me it seems like the flavor text is referring to a drake blackhorn bonded with before Goriona. Eventually it died/was killed and he used its hide for a belt as a memento.
Currently this the best-in-slot for Survival and Marksmanship Hunters (Beast Mastery Hunters will want to opt instead for Cord of Dragon Sinew, purchased with Valor Points, or Dragoncarver Belt, which drops off trash in Dragon Soul). Fitted with a belt buckle, this makes for an item that will be on every hunter (other than BM) wish-list.
Incorrect. Beast Mastery Hunters (such as me) use Critical as their main stat, and Haste as their seconds stat, with mastery being their worst. Along with the TON of agility on this belt, this is easily the BiS for any hunter, including BM.
It sure would suck to work for Blackhorn....
First, he sends you in to die 2 at a time against a bunch of annoying, swarming midgets instead of letting you all attack at once and killing them
Then, when you die, he wears clothing made from your skin!
The price of this belt when you vendor it is 75 gold which mean the same when you transmog it ...
I built a transmog set from these for my Nelf hunter as follows:
Storm Master's Helmet
- 260 JP in Shattrath
Shoulders of Lightning Reflexes
- crafted by Leatherworkers (BoP)
Sentinel's Winter Cloak
- 579 JP in Dalaran & Icecrown Citadel
- Dropped by Hydross the Unstable in Serpentshrine Cavern
Golden Links of Restoration
- Dropped by Anetheron in Hyjal Summit
Dark Silk Shirt
- Crafted by tailors
Handgrips of the Savage Emissary
- Dropped by Cyanigosa in Heroic Violet Hold
Belt of the Beloved Companion
- Dropped by Warmaster Blackhorn in Dragon Soul (10/25 man normal)
Infection Resistant Legguards
- Dropped by Trollfore in Normal Drak'Tharon Keep
- Dropped by Rage Winterchill in Hyjal Summit
Crypt Fiend Slayer
- Dropped by Captain's Chest in Halls of Reflection
Put together they look like this:
