Orange: A Guide to all Legendary Weapons
2011/10/16 at 3:59 PM
With the buzz about the teaser information for
Fangs of the Father
, it's a good time to go back and look at the other legendaries Blizzard has implemented across expansions. Many of these weapons have similarly striking questlines and unique models--even if you can't transmogrify them, they're worth collecting. Whether you're trying to farm one of these for the looks or lore, or were the first person in your guild to receive one during progression, legendaries have a special place in everyone's heart.
We've also gone through the database to highlight removed, silly, and temporary legendaries for your amusement, as they've got some funny stories behind them too!
Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest
This staff is a must-have for any caster in Firelands--plus it turns you into a dragon (

acquiring this weapon

4.3 Preview: Well of Eternity Overview and Dragon Soul Testing
2011/10/14 at 10:32 PM
Blizzard hit us with an unexpected testing phase this afternoon of the new raid as well as the final 5-man; unfortunately, the raid was announced right as the bosses went live, so the servers started tanking immediately while everyone rushed to log on. Only a few groups got a 10-man together--most top-end guilds fought the loading screen boss instead, getting 4-5 of their members in the instance before testing time ran out. We managed to get in and take some screenshots, but sadly, the majority of my guild was stuck at the loading bar for the entire night.
All of this is to say I doubt we'll see many good videos, as the streams were fairly disappointing due to guilds like Blood Legion only able to pull trash due to limited numbers--most videos will probably be PUG point of views.
A rocky start, but hopefully we'll have some great testing sessions before and after BlizzCon!
Here are our other 5-man related previews

4.3 Dragon Soul Raid Drops
2011/10/14 at 1:36 PM
Last night's PTR patch let us see what will drop from the new raid instance, as the dungeon journal was updated for the Dragon Soul bosses finally.
Some notes: the items themselves aren't entirely done nor is this by any means a final draft of the loot and its ilevels. We think the stats are fairly accurate; however, their names are obviously generated with the "Horrific" prefix and some of their text is erroneous, like the season 10 item or the multiple ones that require Avengers' of Hyjal reputation. Still, this serves as a great basis for what's dropping where--as well as what type of boss you'll be facing, lootwise. I mean, Spine of Deathwing is looking like a trinket boss to us!

<p><em>We like to tie a Hunter’s Tier armour in with an appropriate donor creature – it suggests the Hunter has actually <em>hunted</em> for the set! As there’s an awful lot of dragons in this patch, a draconic theme was the way to go. We wanted to reference but not simply reproduce the classic Dragonstalker set. To that end, we limited the use of dragon heads to the helm and chained leathery wings around the shoulders which gives the impression of a skeletal drago
4.3 5-man Dungeon Drops
2011/10/05 at 4:22 PM
We managed to get the loot tables for the 5-mans (prettied up by resident volunteer Neutronimity, thanks!)--this is probably a lot more helpful than our datamined list of items as these show what will drop from where and what stats you can start looking forward to picking up.
A quick rundown of the items: they're ilevel 378 and surprisingly solid stats. The trinkets were taken from Bastion of Twilight and Blackwing Descent in procs and on uses, making them equally solid; whose death knight alt wouldn't want to nab a ?
As a side note, there are also unique dungeon sets for these 5-mans. While they do not have set bonuses, they do have a noticeable style which

Diablo III beta winners
aceofangel, Jarrho, Arawethion, Rainemard,
! You'll have an email sometime this week about your keys.
Anyway, today was another PTR patch so Perculia and I checked it out after our raids tonight--and came up with some interesting stuff, not least of all, a whole lot of screenshots of another 5-man. We also discovered that the dungeon journal entries for Dragon Soul changed, in particular, Warmaster Blackthorn got a new entry which we have included at the bottom of this post.
