Dropped in Molten Core by Baron Geddon. Requires yet another rare drop to begin a quest chain to create the game's first legendary sword, Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker.
Along with this, you will need:
And the end result:
Both bindings are quite rare. Many guilds who have been running Molten Core for over a year now have seen maybe only 1 half. Other guilds may have multiple of one or the other (or both) at this point. It's entirely based on the luck of the drop.
The gold investment is tremendous. Buying all the mats, I'd be amazed if this sword could be crafted for less than 6,000 gold. Assuming the guild provided the cores and Elementium ore (which is likely) the Arcanite and fluxes will set you back at least 3,000 gold.
Do everyone a favor: Only roll/bid/buy this item if you're interested in the financial burden as well.
after a year and a half of running Molten Core every week, I have still NEVER seen Geddon drop his binding. Garr however has dropped his FOUR times
I'm still dragging people into MC every week to try to get my second binding though, I refuse to be defeated by a bad drop rate!
Am i the only one still farming this damn thing? :)
Note: can easily be done 10-man :p
Was looking through my posts on wowhead and i found this again.
Just writing this to say that a month ago I finally got this binding.
It was like 3:30 AM when it dropped in a 10-man pug, I was shaking and killing peoples ears on Ventrilo, after 1.5 years of farming geddon every week at messed up hours, it paid off.
Loving my thunderfury, flashing it at every oppertunity!
Don't give up guys and girls, it's still possible to get
Even after 2 years his half still hasn't dropped for me yet. But still, I'm not giving up. He'll cough it up one day... and I'LL BE THERE!
This can easily be done with 10 man in a 30 min window. Make sure you don't take any lower lvls with you, as you may want to skip some mobs.
I noticed it's unique, but I'm just wondering, since I already have a TF...if I have another binding (3rd, as it were), is it possible to get the quest off Demetrian again?
Has anyone tested this?
Of course I couldn't get another TF, since it's unique, but if I could pick up the quest again, I'd like to get the dormant wind kissed blade - best item name ever.
with the tbc and soon wotlk out they should increase the drop chance from 0.2-0.5% to lets say 5-10% so you can get it easier since no one does mc anymore
Last night on my second run Molten Core ever, with my guild. The right half of the binding dropped. I won it with a roll of 89 after a hunter realised he actually didn't want it (he rolled 100). But when I told him what the actual money and time needed would be he contacted a GM and had it assigned to me.
Now I'm gonna farm the left half of Baron Geddon, and while doing that I'm saving money for Arcane Crystals and Thorium Bars, the first being the most expensive. 100 arcane crystals and 100 thorium bars.
On my server this roughly costs
1 Arcane Crystal = around 5g x 100 = 500g
20 Thorium Bars = around 25g x 5 = 125g
30 Elemental Fluxes = 450g
Total = 1075g
Not including all the farming for elementium ore or fiery cores.
All in all getting this blade is something you really have to put time and effort in. And I'm liking it so far, it adds some spark again to my level 70.
dropped my left binding last week, now just Garr's one and RISE THUNDERFURY!
I think harder part at lv70 is gather arcane crystal and elementium ore
Yes, they are. There's more info on
, however for a short summary, you need this or the other half (you dont "need" both at this stage.), then go to Silithus to
after that is done, start the quest from the
Vessel of Rebirth
and turn it in to the guy. Once you do that he will give you
that shows you what you need.
1x(left) Bindings of the Windseeker
1x(right) Bindings of the Windseeker
1x Essence of the Firelord
(100% drop if you have the quest)
10x Elementium Bar
You can find where to get these things from their respective pages. Once you get the items you turn in the quest and the dude summons a
giant wind elemental
(Don't worry he's very very weak and can easily be 5 manned if not less.) that drops
Dormant Wind Kissed Blade
, which in turn starts the quest that rewards
. He is resummonable if you wiped, yes.
Currently I am working on getting the rest of the mats after running MC for the hell of it and getting a binding from Garr.
Don't think that just because Death Knights are not shown in the "Classes requirement" on the item, they can't get it. Cause they can, it's just a bug that they've not added "Death Knight" on the class requirement description. They can use the item, get the quest and do the questline like any other class that is shown on the bindings.
I'd like to give Blizzard kudos for actually remembering Death Knights in pre-TBC instances.
According to what I
a german blue says on the europe forums, the bindings are no longer class-restricted and the tooltips will be updated in a future patch. Google translator garbles it a bit, but the gist of it seems clear enough.
I am doing the
quests on my main and I'm currently on
this quest (Hand of the Enemy)
, so my idea is to kill those and bring my (at the moment) level 55 warrior to Garr and Baron Geddon
Since you can do the attunement and enter Molten Core at level 55, can you loot one of the bindings if you're not above level 60 yet?
There are no level prerequisites for obtaining the binding, just luck. However you wont be able to wield Thunderfury unless you're level 60. As of patch 3.0.8 it is still class specific, although they have added Deathknights.
Got extremely lucky with this binding. I had Garr's drop last week after a few weeks of farming and Barons dropped today(the week after).
I find it oddly funny when I am able to 2 man Garr and Geddon with ease at 80, makes me sad to see a cool raid get smashed by only 2 people. For those who may wonder, I am a warrior, and I do it with a ret pally. Garr is obvious, camp def stance, both of you smack the adds (pally keeps you healed of course) then slap Garr. Geddon I just tank him on the wall where sometimes you can avoid fall damage from being the bomb, since theres only 2 people you'll get hit by it alot. Just stack a bit of fire resist with the pally fire aura and you should be fine. Just make sure your pally/healer remembers to dispell the mana burn! =)
Just got my binding from Baron Geddon after 5 trys. Lets hope Garr will be nice to me next week :)
Death Knight is added to the list of classes on the PTR.
I was lucky today and got this left half. Im wondering about increased drop rate, cause we have cleared whole instance multiple times in vanilla WoW and it was bloody imposible to see this items to drop...
posted on us forums. (basicly a screenie from the 3.0.8 ptr.)
also a mage claims he has the quest after grabbing the bindings.
apparently even though class restricted, its an item that doesnt do shizzle (exept grats acces to a quest?)
about a week old, today.
Just got this
80 DK executus eu, thumbs up for next week ;]
The bindings can now be used by any class, regardless of what the tooltip says. The tooltip should be updated soon.
woooow. dk`s are in. niiice.
think blizz should made this long time ago. few weeks for sure.
same with tbc and classic tier items. else, its only rep and... some fun or wipefun .
I have the quest on my mage aswell.
Also, the text "used by" on the bindings is probably just a hint of what kind of object that the ultimate quest will give because at no point yet have I been forced to "use" the binding. I just kept it in inventory as I talked to the Highlord and I got it.
As for being able to equip Thunderfury itself its only a matter of being able to weild a sword.
Anyways, it is confirmed that mages can get the quest.
Death Knight with Thunderfury...nice joke, Blizz -.-
The only reason you get Thunderfury today is for the bragging rights it offer. I'm trying to get it atm, still missing the Elementium bars and this binding. Apparently its possible for a DK to solo the Baron so i'll try to do it.
Well i guess my brother and I are really lucky cause we went in to have some fun and see if we could get his half from Garr, luckily it dropped. But the surprise came when we killed Baron that his half dropped as well, so now i'm out farming the mats except for the elementium from BWL. GL to anyone and everyone trying to get these bindings, i've run MC pretty much since my first toon hit 60 and this is the first time i've ever seem either of them drop nvm both of them dropping.
I'm a mage that completed the quest and can confirm that it can be equipped. So for sure warlocks and mages can complete the quest and equip the Thunderfury.
Hey ! I have a qestion. If I am a druid 80 lvl and I am runing MC. What would we happend if i would got Bindings of the Windseeker ? Would I accept the quest if it is not my class I know it is sword and i can't use it , but just having it in back pack ?Last edited by
Your math seems right at a glance, but of course the chance of getting the bindings next run is the same as it ever was; all the math shows is just how unlucky you've been so far.
Classified by wowhead as junk (as seen on baron's loot table).
I got this binding in October 2008 I was very excited i farmed the ore and then I got the recipe to smelt them from the goblin and i got the essence from ragnaros. But i still need the binding from garr. Now its June 2, 2009 and I have farmed garr every week since October and i have not seen it drop. Though i will not quit trying nor should anyone who wants this "collector's item" this item will drop i know it i just need to put forth some more hard work and dedication.
i'll reply if it ever drops for me =)
server- Blood Furnace
2.5 years and no Geddon part....I really sometimes think the Geddon part has less Droprate then Gaar's i've seen Gaar's drop 2 times in the last 5 weeks i am going in.
Just completed the entire thing on my paladin last night.
While the class restrictions have been removed and anyone can complete the quest i did **NOT** get the achievement for having the Thunderfury until **AFTER** I had equiped it. Just a thing for you non sword wielding classes that want to do this for the achievement.
I've been running MC every week for a looong time now, and all I need to complete the quest is this binding from Baron Geddon. If it doesn't drop for me by the time Cataclysm launches, I'm going to be so so so upset. :(
I even sent a ticket to a GM asking if it was in any way possible for me or anyone else in my situation to get the binding another way when and if MC is removed, because, let's be honest, you're going to be completely gutted if all the effort you put into getting the materials and bindings was all for nothing, and "random loot is random" ruined your chance of getting the sword.
The GM who responded to me said, "We're not going to give you an item just because it didn't drop." Well, yeah, okay, I didn't expect them to say, "Oh, of course, we'll throw you a red carpet and hand it over to you," but come ooon. D:
Either way, I'll keep on farming every reset. I'm getting desperate though, and rather anxious about it not dropping. :(
Good luck, everyone.
Got Right Binding last week nothing this week (well Got the Eye off Rag lol) but maby next week it will drop for my birthday been farming for a long time for this /crosses fingers
I am still trying to get this one, I have had the gar one and all the bars for over 2 years now, anytime now...I am in there every tuesday first thing, I only missed one week when I was in amsterdam
Starting to wondering if somethings wrong here too :P done around 131 runs = 131 weeks .... never ever seen geddon bind drop . only 2 garr . Its same with the ZG tiger atm too , done 235 runs for that never seen it :P
I just got my binding this evening. I consider myself very lucky, I only had to farm it for just about 3 months. I didn't get the Feat of Strength/Achievement until AFTER i equiped the sword. As far as farming the bindings, the 3 months is inclusive of farming both.
<Eve of Destruction>
80 Prot Pally
been soloing Geddon on my DK every week since April 09. I got Garrs binding around Octorber so stopped killing him and have just been doing Geddon since.
I got my first binding this week off Garr, 2 manned it w/ a druid healer and my rogue. This was my second week of trying, so I feel very fortunate to have already received one binding. Hoping my good fortune continues and I can get Geddon's binding before Cataclysm is released at the very least, as Molten Core is said to be inaccessible after that point, thus making it impossible to obtain both Sulfuras and Thunderfury.
just got on first drop - 2/10/10 - 1:06pm
got Garr's bindings from first try. Baron's give me problems... 78 and still counting. I got all the mats,and just hoping for this last part before i can do the final quest. If the runs would stack,which they dont,34 runs and u have a 100 % drop chance of the bindings :)
good news guys! i got this drop and got all mats for the quest. after almost 200 kills of baron geddon it droped! it droped! ill post a screen shot after i get the sword :) and btw my previous post is very old,just posted it late
screenshot as promised :)
If you are planning to craft Thunderfury for the FoS, think that you need to equip TF in order to get the achievement. So if your class can't wear a 1h sword, don't pick this up. You will spend a lot of time / money in gathering the other materialas and you won't get the achievement.
Baron Geddon better drop this binding somewhere in 3 months...
Sorry if this is a stupid question, hope it doesnt get downrated, but i do find it very odd how this coincidence has occured... everyone i know who has got TF, or is in the process of getting it, has ran into a wall when it comes to the binding from Baron Geddon, i've seen loads of comments that people have seen Garr's binding drop multiple times, or 'after a week or two of farming'
I even asked a guy randomly who just finished his TF just *yesterday*, and he said he had seen multiple Garr bindings drop, and tried to convince me that Geddon has a lower chance for his to drop. Coincidentally i have seen 2 Garr drops myself, but never really thought about it, i always assumed it was the same chance, and it probably is.. I am just curious if anyone else is seeing this rather....strange pattern? Or whether this is just RNG on a 'server scale'
About a year into it atm, maybe more, 10 Elementium bars, 1 (Right) Binding, just need lefty. :)
Best of luck to everyone else!
Silly question, I'm sure. But as someone who's only been farming this, and the Garr binding, for a few weeks now I'm starting to wonder. I don't see any mention here but... do you need to start the Thunderfury quest BEFORE you farm these items? Or does the binding itself start the quest?
Could save me a long ass time of grinding for nothing if I need to go pickup the quest first.
got the eye yesterday, went in there to farm Sulfurion ingot on my priest and druid.. ofc this binding dropped, while i was on a class that cant wield sword :(
Don't see it said here, but...
Thunderfury will, in all likelihood, remain obtainable in Cataclysm (along with all the other legendaries still in game - i.e., not counting Atiesh) because they are part of the guild "Legendary" achievement. Given that guild achievements are worth tangible benefits and not just vanity, I doubt they would make one as valuable as that is likely to be impossible to get.
So after trying to get this particular binding to drop for months on end, I head to solo MC as usual this week.
Both Bindings drop.
And the Eye.
Has the drop % been increased, or was that just 1 in a million....?
I am a lvl 66 hunter on the realm Terrokar and i have the right Binding, All the elementium, and the essence of the firelord. Cataclysm comes out in about a month(give or take a week) and i am worried that Either the quest giver in silthis will be removed so i cant summon thunderaan or MC will be removed so i cant get other binding.(or both might be romoved) I am currently farming it every week and i fear i am running out of time. If the quest giver is removed what will happen to the quest in my log and if mc is removed what will happen to the quest also. Plz help I really want TF!
After well over 5 years of not seeing a single one, both bindings dropped in the same run tonight. I am a druid, so I let my bro's warlock have em both. Keep in mind, you only get the feat of strength from
the sword, so any class that cant use swords can only pop it in trade to irritate people or show off. I'll still make the sword should I ever get my own bindings, but make sure to pass em to people who can equip swords so at least someone gets a FoS out of this rare thing.
This ^&*! has dropped for me 3 times, in 3 weeks. But Garrs just wont drop. -_-
This just in, random loot is random.
Just because it dropped for you when Cataclysm came out does not mean they upped the drop rate, and just because you've run it 150 times and haven't seen it doesn't mean anything is wrong.
I have been clearing MC for a long time, starting early in WotLK and never missed a raid ID. Also, I was doing MC on multiple toons.
My pally just had her 70th Ragnaros kill and adding other MC runs I have done on other toons, it is suffice to say that I ran over 100 MC runs. Out of all these runs, I have obtained 9 left bindings and 4 right bindings.
Although both bindings are supposed to have the same drop rate, however, considering that I have done over 100 runs with 9:4 ratio for bindings, I am fairly confident to say that right binding is indeed far more rare than the left. As a matter of fact, I got 2 out of 9 left bindings in two consecutive weeks, 1 from last week and 1 this week. Sadly, I ran out of toons that can equip Thunderfury so both of them got deleted.
I got Geddon's Bindings in my first run before 2hours.
Sadly,my Death knight got Geddon's Bindings and my rogue got Garr's Bindings.
Why Bindings are bound, not bound to account?
Addition, my rogue got Garr's Bindings again when my friend got her first Geddon's Bindings.
Ive gotten 4 bindings from Baron, 0 from Garr. I am so annoyed!
Just go this last night in my first run of Molten Core, MD to pet and and then Kill command and Cobra shot and burned him down pretty quick. He did get living bomb on me twice but was for minimal damage dropped left binding for me and Arcanist Mantle as well as Fiery core and Essence of Fire. Now to get Garr to drop the right.
Finally got Garr to drop the right binding as well last night little more than two months of farming every reset! Now a couple of more ingots and I will have Thunderfury!
As above people said random is random. My DK got this Friday the 13th May, 2011 on his firs trun in MC. I have been in here many times between my mage and my hunter and never saw them or the eye. This is the same case with the
. My mage got it on her first run in Stratholm while my Hunter has ran through 30+ times. And my hunter got
on his first run through Karazhan. Everyone has luck in one instance or another, you just gotta find yours.
I have been farming MC for almost 30 weeks and had a last night drop on this side :D
Still waiting for other one to come up finally :/
Edit : Got other one 30 mins ago and finally got my Thunderfurry :) Dont give up ppl! ;)
I dont know if drop rate was change in any way, but today Both bindings dropped in the very same run after around a year farming MC.
Was I extremly lucky or something changed?
this binding realy pissed me off..... i have the right binding and all i need is the left, so yesterday i got my warlock to level 50 and asked my friends to run me through molten core, we go....almost every piece of my tier 1 for him droped accept the feet and the robe, and the 2 boes wich i just bought off the ah later...anyways we get to Baron Geddon and kill him....loot pops up and theres the left binding....
me: /rw FFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
-.- figures the one time i don't go on my main and it drops.....
i wanted to kill blizzard ....i even set my broadcast to " dear blizzard, i hate you. love acinos
so i ran it on my main hoping beyond hope it would drop....i set loot to epic so i wouldn't have to bother with the blues popping up.
it didn't drop...my locks slippers did though... so i decide to clear it hoping the eye would drop...no luck there.... i log out sad.....about an hour later i log back in open my bags at a vender to get rid of the items i couldn't ah.....and i see this purple sphere........and i said "....no....it couldn't be could it?" i mouse over and laughed my butt off.....in an attempt to make me feel better i had gotten an orb of deception from rag and never noticed cus i had loot set to epic XD
now im torn between giving it to my friend since he has wanted one forever, selling it, or keeping it for myself....still wish i would have gotten the binding though ;)
After running this for years on my hunter then my shaman, seeing many bindings drop but always passing or being sent to a tank. Last night i got both bindings in the same run on my war. =)
3 exalted toons and out of that ive seen 6 right bindings and only 3 left ones.
Just got this on my 22nd week of running MC. First binding I've seen, still no sign of the Eye off of Raggy.
Been hearing rumors though that having the quest increases the drop chance of the other binding... Hope this is true so that I can stop running this place soon. >_<
I just had the fourth consecutive drop of the left binding.
Is that normal?
I'm still waiting for the right binding, but baron geddon dropped it 4 times in a row now.
Of course I couldn't loot it because the binding is unique and in my bank...
Does the game give me a binding until I loot it?
I've been after this binding for around 2 years it seems. I got the right binding the 1st time I went in to solo the place on my hunter, and again the next time I went in. I'm afraid to try on any of my other toons for fear of the left binding doping. Baron Geddon is the bain of my existence.
I got the left binding 3 weeks ago, and got the right one off Garr today, I considered it a jammy bit of luck tbh.
Just need another 42 Arcane Crystals and I have my first Legendary :D
Here's my QQ story.
I was on my shadow priest running my girlfriend through MC on her boomkin and this dropped. I have a warrior I'm actively farming this for and didn't think to bring her instead of my more capable priest. So we tried jimmying around the loot rules to make it lootable for my warrior, who wasn't there for the kill but to no avail. So i gave it to my girlfriend's druid.
I started running MC for recipes, to complete my engineering.
A couple of weeks ago I was joking with a friend about bindings being a life sentence if you get one 'cos, given the drop rates, you'd never get the other one. I go for my usual solo run anyway and start with Gehennas then the binding bosses. 85 'tard so it's not difficult. Both bindings drop.
I make the sword and pose with it in town. No, it's no use anymore, but it is a giggle. It's also fun to whack stuff with it and see the tornadoes, heh. Farming arcane crystals sucks.
No recipes drop. I go again this week, still chasing recipes. Bear in mind I only got the sword a couple of weeks ago. Same bosses first again, same order. Both bindings drop. Look me up if you don't believe me, heh. I'll keep the bindings as a memento.
Increased drop rate?
Bumper - Terenas/EU
Hydraxian Waterlords exalted achievement: 27/11/2010
Clearing MC every single god-forsaken week
Left half finally drops: 27/10/2011
What do I do with my life now? :O
Got both in the same run after 4 monthes farming.. :DDD
Luck or common these days?
Possible that they pushed the drop rate up? A guildy got both bindings in one run after a month. In addition to that, I got both bindings in less than 30 minutes on my first run of molten core.
i got this stupid binding twice and still haven't got the right one going on 41 weeks now....
I just looted my second left Binding... Already have Thunderfury... TRYING to get the Eye of Sulfuras for my mace...
Hey, would I happen to need a raid group to see the item drop? im noticing blank items in my interface...
Had both bindings, and the eye of sulfuras drop on my warlock's first MC run. I about had a fit.
I got the right side on my first run on my level 50 alt, after farming for forever on my 85 Rogue and Warrior. I can already smelt the bars, so now I need to farm for ingots and arcane gems, and hope to god I get lucky enough for this to drop.
Found some hours ago this last bindings, it took 3 year of farming, one time per week!
The garr bindings dropped after 3 months of farming
My two cents:
I have the Right half and I'm seeking the left for my Thunderfury weapon. Incidentally, I have Eye of Ragnaros as well for Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros which I have on another toon and which was a lot easier to farm for IMHO. I have farmed probably enough Elementium Ingots to make the legendaries once I get the Left Half and four more bloods.
This is what I do:
I go into MC, and I kill ALL Destroyers for Blood of the Mountain (sells quite high at this time, far more than the Sulfuron Ingots). I mine ALL Dark Iron nodes. Then I go and I kill Baron. No other bosses. I do not care about the rep (I figure I'll do well enough farming for the left binding :) ) and I do care about stats on how many times the Right half drops from Garr because I know I'll end up driving myself frigging crazy.
Reading this post, about half of the posters complain about drop rates (they can't get their half to drop or they lose the roll to some newb), and the want to know about what percentages these things drop, or they want to say how many times they had to kill this or that to get the item. RNG is RNG, don't drive yourself crazy. My advice is just to seek what you need and do that, and then leave.
Just cross posted this same thing under Right Binding :)
Just got this today.
Got sulfuras hammer first, with 61 Ragnaros kills, and then the right half at 75 kills. Now I get this left half today at about just over 80 kills, long time grinding MC (since 60) but finally have them both :)
you will continue to loot the bindings (if they drop) even after you have TF... they are soulbound and have no sell price, so its just for funzies
I have run MC on several different characters and never even saw either binding drop. I leveled a new warrior on Khadgar and the 1st time for him to run MC, the left binding dropped. I finished the run thru MC then went and got the quest to get the essence. During my next run, I was LUCKY enough for the right binding to drop. Now just to finish the quest chain, which means a few runs through BWL.
Even with my luck on this character, it took me over 7 years to see either binding drop.
Now I have the itch to go after more of the legendary weapons for Transmog
21 kills - no Bindings =( Im soooo tired! WoWHead help me!
you do NOT need to kill the previous bosses for this to drop
Little Tip - after you get either piece of the Bindings - Head streight to
to pickup the quest chain for TF - in doing so you will pickup Essence of the firelord in the same raid lockout
I don't remember how many weeks I've been farming this guy, but holy s*&^ I've never seen such an annoying mob. F*$#ing drop already!
I didnt know what this item was....
First time ever in MC, it dropped for me...
Was this drop nerfed in MoP? I got both of them on my first run.
I have 127 kills on Baron Geddon for this item. That is 2 and a half years of killing this guy and my binding still has not $%^&ing dropped. What makes it even worse is that I kill garr for #$%^s and giggles every run to see how many times the other binding will drop before I get this one, I have had it drop FIVE TIMES. I *!@#ing hate RNG.
today i dropped both parts of windseekers in one run . i guess im so lucky :D
Finally got this b***h today after about 15-20 tries, had the right side drop off Garr last week for the second time, and man was i pissed. to make things worse i have to get the bars again cause i always ended up selling them for 5k :P
I just went as a level 85 Mage to Molten Core, and the binding dropped from the first guy, the Elemental. On a Mage... and it binds on pick up -.-
i hate these 2 binding have been trying since lvl 70 every week still havent seen 1 really driving me insaine! why wont blizzard increase drop now
I got the last (left half) bindings and having all the items to get the sword, I rushed and finished with Molten Core (Killing Raggy) Bad idea.. only after that did I notice that I need to kill Raggy for a quest item. Now I need to wait for next week. Don't make the same mistake that I did...
I have been after the left half for almost a year. I have all other mats needed, blizzard hates me
Got this piece today after passing on it back in 2005 to save my DKP for Tier 1 shoulders (ugh, worst mistake ever), and going through Molten Core now & then in the years since. Now I'm looking at the mats required to build Thunderfury, in 2013 this scares me. I've had the right half for years already, so it's good to finally be done with MC.
Is the drop rate buffed? I got right half last week and went to silithus to accept the quest. Then this week I got the left half dropped! Now the 10 enchanted elementium bar...they cost 10k gold on US Whisperwind realm :-(
Seems more like a 0.4% drop rate.
I wanted to post this just to encourage everyone to not give up hope. I've been running molten core for 3 years now. 77 logged baron kills with DBM running and who knows how many without. I got garrs binding within my first 5 clears but this half of the bindings eluded me for SOOOOO long.
It finally dropped today. I did 30 or so kills without picking up the "thunderaan the windseeker" quest (may have been a mistake, not sure if that is a pre req. for the 2nd half of the bindings to drop). I was going to drop the quest and start over but i decided to keep on keepin on and it finally paid off.
So if you're like me and run it every tuesday hoping this week will be the week for you, take a breath, relax. Mine dropped on a monday less then 12 hrs before the reset when i was least expecting it. GL on your grind. =D
I started looking for a pally transmog set monday night. Got the judgement head, and boots and decided to go to MC for the pants.. This left side piece dropped on the 1st try of looking for it.. Then RAG dropped the pants.. GL finding them.. This was pure luck!
Got two of these (on two different characters - thank the nordic gods).
Now, I am big on keeping track of the statistics, as I've been tracking them on my Eye of Ragnaros drops.
Got two eyes dropped on 58 rag kills - Droprate:Eye: 3,4% (2/58 = 0,034...) which is close to the estimated drop rate.
But I know of no way to figure out your Baron/Garr kills as it doesn't show up in wow statistics in achievements.
But I would estimate about 150 kills on my account over the past years with two drops.
Droprate: Left Bindings: 1,3% (2/150 = 0,0133...)
Anyways, if you know of some way of tracking the kills, hit me up - thanks!
GLHF getting your Thunderfury
Edit: Update -
approx 390 baron/garr kills.
7 Left Bindings - 1,79 % (7/390 = 0,0179...)
9 Right Bindings - 2,3 % (9/390 = 0,0230...)
Dont give up!
Well over 100 clears, 2 eyes, 5 right halves, still no left half. Still waiting for Executus to implement a Molten Exchange Policy for long term investors.
Ive just got to ask, date 17/08/2014, time 23:21PM UK time - has it been buffed or am i extremely lucky, ive just gotten both binding in the same run.. ive just gotta no!
I've been running MC on my main trying to get exalted with the Hydraxian Warlords, and I'm a week or two away from getting there. I hopped to an alt just for transmogrification purposes, and on the first time that toon ever tried MC the left binding dropped. (That means my toon can't use it and my achievement toon won't get the achievement.) The point of this post is to let you know it will take many, many, many runs in order to see this drop.
got the left half after at half exalted, I will never run this raid again with my main druid for the Eye lol.
Yay! Half way to exalted and finally one bindings dropped. Already have Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros. Now to get Garr's Bindings!
This item dropped on my 91st kill, this is the third time I've seen it drop.
During the same run, its counterpart
, dropped, too!
I have the reward for doing the quest,
, on two charaters aswell.
This comment might look like an eyesore to a few of you so... Sorry!
So you find out that a buddy is farming this thing on his paladin and you think what the heck ill just go on my warlock for the fun of it...
You get a binding to drop on the first run and spam google to see if you can use it as a warlock...Guess what... YOU CAN!...
2 runs later the other binding drops you craft your thunderfury and you live happly!
''Damn you are lucky...'' you must be thinking?
I wasn't done yet though!
You go on your 70 rogue twink and you get both bindings in 2 runs (so far 2 thunderfury's)
So your buddy is like man... run with me I need some of your luck.
You are like okay :)
You run it solo and the binding drops (the one he needed).
You migrate and run again (binding drops again)
You run as well on your warrior ( binding drops again)
(total of 3 bindings on 2 chars in 1 day, 3x the binding he needed that is!
They ain't that hard to come by, you just need epic luck!
Does your friend have it now?
Does he hate you by this point?
I think he silently does, yes.
GL farmers and start buying those bars from the AH... stop making them yourself you cheap scrooges I need to make a living...
Just got this one on my rogue! Tought about farming it last reset on rogue/pala/warrior...lucky me.
Now need right 1...let the wait begin.
decided to go farm for hatespark the tiny and got this half on my first try.. i then went on my second toon to try farming for the pet since it didn't drop and this same half dropped.. I'm guessing i was lucky in a sense after reading through the comments?
And it dropped again on my rogue. 6 kills total...2 bidings rofl. Give Garr one instead!
Never saw this one drop in vanilla. Have been farming it now on and off for a couple years. Have never seen it drop. :-/ Why u suk RNG!
Yesterday got the Right part.
Today was clearing MC to do the quest (left part dropped months ago) and guess what? Left part dropped. Rofl.
Maybe I should go visit Illidan...
Dropped one last week (1st December) and dropped again today (8th December). No Eye of Sulfuras yet
Just got this one again, even though I already have the
, and could still loot it. Are you supposed to be able to loot it even though you've already completed the quest?
Anybody here get this left part more than 3 times without single right part i get mine 4th left and still farm for right part. I want to ask i need to hold mine 3rd part in mine bags or remove 3rd one and get new fesh 4th one
Not sure why but on 7.0.3 it didn't allow me to loot it. It was like stuck and moreover, I've never done this prior to today so...
here we are in Legion and I still have yet to get the left binding. fml
Exalted with Hydraxion Warlords trying to get this. I've completed two Legendary hammers in the process for various characters without even actually needing to grind for the mats. I've had the right half for years. Everything is ready, just need the blasted left half xD.
Just looted this on my mage, from Baron Geddon. So confirming that it still drops.
I run this on my warrior every once in a while. I have 42 kills of Ragnaros, that is full runs of MC. I've stopped running MC from the beginning to the end in 2015 and since then I've only gone for Geddon. The statistics page doesn't count my Geddon kills, but i assume they're around 90 by now. I have yet to see it drop.
Edit: I've seen the right half drop 3 times over those initial 42 kills.
EDIT: Got the right half today, 13 oct 2018, 43 full clears or around 110 geddon kills later. Funny thing is i had the quest in my log, i had accepted it during the MOP days and last week i decided to abandon it and retake it. Not sure it has anything to do with that but it worked like a charm.
Confirm that it drops in BFA. Got mine on first Geddon kill.
what is the drop rate on this..been 10 years.
I got 9 bindings of the windseeker from BARON GEDDON in 136 attempts and 0 binding from Garr... god i hate him
i had one of these drop for me on my shaman. i *eye rolled* cause shamans cant wield swords. i came here and noticed thats all ppl can use them even if they cant use swords
I am a proud owner of Thunderfury on this toon, and today the bindings dropped again...?
I figured that was impossible, but maybe i can have 2 Thunderfuries :)
Is it possible to use it with my dh? Not sure if I want to waste time and then realise I can't use it.
Is this still in the game?
I'm running it weekly, my experience does not seem to be representative of a 3.8% drop rate.
Ho-hum, until next week :)
Got them both in 2 runs lol
Finally acquired after 13 years of on and off farming (2008-2021).
Went in to molten core to farm the rogue set one day.
Oh wow, a binding dropped from Garr, maybe I'll do everything else to get a Thunderfury tmog.
Collect the elementium from BWL, farming 100 arcane crystals around Silithus and Ungoro, and leveling alchemy on an alt and making sure it has transmutation mastery to potentially save some mats.
This was almost a year ago, I have been Exalted with Hydraxian Waterlords (takes at least 21 weeks after hitting revered) for a couple of months now and I am still searching for Baron Geddon's binding.
After years (well over a decade even) of grinding. I finally got the stupid Bindings off Baron last Tuesday on my rogue, and I could not believe. I have been playing since '05. raided in Vanilla, but never had the DKP or ability to land them during that time. Though my guild never saw them drop. During BC I ran my then 70 character in MC weekly with a guild called Heralds of Yore, who locked their characters at 60 to do old content, but still needed help till they got enough guild members to do all 60s. Only saw a right half drop. During WotLK my guild would host classic raid run throughs doing all Vanilla, and BC after Friday night GKDP just so people could see the content, get achievements, and collect cool looking gear before transmogs were a thing. It was at this point I got a right half binding, and by the time Cata was out, I was soloing MC weekly, and through MoP, through the part of WoD until I quit WoW. Came back briefly at the end Legion, and played into the start of BFA but quit until Metzen said come back home.
Not once did I ever see the left binding. Saw the right half off Garr multiple times, and sure I could have farmed on multiple characters, but I'm sure I would have been grief'd with one characters having a left half and like 3 others having right half bindings...
However I finally got it and about an hour later I got my Thunderfury so keep at it people. Even after stupid amounts of grinding. Luck will eventually turn around, though maybe not for that stupid Love Rocket... >.>
