Very cool.I love all the Legendaries in WoW now. It sucks that the only Rogue-type DPS one is for 70, though... Oh well, wait a bit and another one will come out!
Looks like this will be a little time-consuming, though I'd hate to think of people trying to ninja the shards...
Cool! I like the look of the mace. Its amazing.
is the shield buff the healed targets receive available on the site somewhere? i wanna know the buff's duration, dispel mechanic, stuff like that.
no hunter loot? aww...and ill guess we have to wait along time before a hunter legendary comes...probably near the end of WoTLK, but probably not at the (upcomeing) Arthas raid.it do look awesome, and got the greatest stats! somehow i dont think a better healing weapon will apear in the next patch...xDbut i want annother feast of strenght! (but i wont loot em...probably even cant... ;P)great item, and good luck to annyone who is farming it!Question: are only one or more in your normal group (if its about the same persons) that tries to get it?
I believe only the person with the quest item, i.e. the one who has collected 30 Shattered Fragments, can attempt to get it.
So uhm, you throw the Fragments into Yoggy, then BAM. Wipe. Now what?
So uhm, you throw the Fragments into Yoggy, then BAM. Wipe. Now what?I believe the Fragments will stay in your inventory until you turn in the quest.if not, then, well...I suggest you wait a few attempts until the raid knows the fight enough to kill him.Looks like this will be a little time-consuming, though I'd hate to think of people trying to ninja the shards......I expect there will be much /gkicking.
So uhm, you throw the Fragments into Yoggy, then BAM. Wipe. Now what?the quest item probably has infinite charges
Well, if you managed to collect ALL the shards, your guild or raid group probably has some experience with Ulduar heroic, and you will probably be able to down him easily. Considering the shards are a rare drop from only heroic ulduar bosses, you'll have Yoggy on farm by the time you get 30 of the damn things.

I wish Atiesh, The Greatstaff was still available. T.TMages get so little love.
Yes, and until Val'anyr, Hammer of the Ancients Kings, Healers got no love since the itemization on Atiesh, The Greatstaff prior to patch 3.0 was for Casters not Healers.
Thins we don't know about Val'anyr:
Is it just me, or does this mace not seem that... special? There is virtually no lore about it, and its stats don't seem very unique. That could be just me, I guess...
Is it just me, or does this mace not seem that... special? There is virtually no lore about it, and its stats don't seem very unique. That could be just me, I guess...Completely agreed. Thunderfury had pretty good stats and an unbelievable proc, Sulfuras had great stats and a great proc, Atiesh had great stats, Thori'dal had good stats and a phenomial passive equip (unlimited ammo)Val'anyr has disappointing stats and the proc doesn't seem that great at all. Basically an extra "tick" of Sacred Shield for Paladins.Consider this, it has 5 int, 19 crit rating, and 37 spellpower over a non-30 rare boss item collection and hard mode boss kill, normal epic.There are still yet to be discovered hard mode and Algalon items, which will likely have the same stats as a legendary item considering they will be the same item level. Val'anyr has an iLvl of 239, that example with 232, with some hard mode items having upwards of iLvl 244. Unless the proc is something like 50% with no internal cooldown, Just does not seem worth all the effort.
Val'anyr Hammer of Ancient Kings - Equip EffectProc chance: 10%EDIT: Let me clarify. "Your healing spells have a chance to cause Blessing of Ancient Kings for 15 seconds..."So each healing spell I cast has 10% chance to buff me up Blessing of Ancient Kings for 15 seconds."...allowing your heals to shield the target..."So now that I have Blessing of Ancient Kings (which lasts 15 sec), all of my heals shield the target."...absorbing damage equal to 15% of the amount healed."The shield absorbs 15% of the amount healed.It's not an extra Sacred Shield proc. It's giving a Sacred Shield to your target with each heal - Blessing of Ancient KingsFor example:Flash of Light, Flash of Light, Flash of Light, Flash of Light, BAM BLESSING OF THE ANCIENT KINGSHoly Light crit (20,000) - BAM Shield for 3,000.Holy Light crit (20,000) - BAM another Shield for 3,000.And on, and on for 15 seconds.For those 15 seconds, you are practically gaining (up to) 15% extra healing through the Shield.
Not sure if it's just luck, but our healer got 3 of these shards in one run in Ulduar (Ninja Edit) heroic last night. !
In Naxxramas even. That truly is lucky.
