Tier 1 of the epic hammer craftable for blacksmiths. Required 350 blacksmithing in order to learn it, and can be purchased from any of the weapon smiths in the main cities.
Haste rating means attack speed, and from what I'm told the proc on this increases your attack speed by roughly 30% (although I may be wrong, I haven't done any calculations my self because I don't have the hammer).
This item is upgradeable over time by collecting mats outside of the instance, and eventually completely instance drops.
Can someone test out the proc rate on this thing? It'd mean a lot to me and lot's of other people, I'm sure. :)
Do you have to be a master hammersmith to use it?
As of 2.0.7, the proc increases speed by 19.02%
great weapon....but for hemo IMO....the stun proc in combat just sucks, better go sword or fist
I've this hammer (fury), great weapon indeed. I did some testing with ProcWatch and after 1450 hits I got a 1.4 proc/min.
Anyone know if enchants persist through the upgrade to Dragonmaw?
This very nice mace is crafted by having blacksmithing and being a Master Hammersmith.
You can upgrade the mace as you progress in the game. Getting the first level
simply require you to farm all the mats and getting the skill required. The second step
and last requires quite a bit more than that.
The first step - Drakefist Hammer (BS 350 skill)
The second step - Dragonmaw (BS 375 skill)
- The hard part here is the Primal Nether which can be found in both
normal and heroic raids. They are not so common in normal mode though.
The third and last step - Dragonstrike (BS 375 skill)
- The hard part here is the Nether Vortex that *only* drops in 25-man raids.
This is amazing weapon as a ench shammy main hand. With slow speed and same (or lower) speed off stormstrike is doing enormous dmg and WF crushes everything. I would choose dual wield rather than 2h for PvP shaman couse this speed weaps are rly good. This plus different lvls of WF on both = death on sight for every classes :).
Very, Very nice weapon for Rogue. I dropped my 375 Skinning/LW to make this, and it's not disappointing whatsoever. A great choice if you want your rogue for massive DPS while sacrificing your Subtlety tree for Combat (5 point mace skill).
Not the best tanking weapon for paladins. I got it for my paladin and I kind of regret it. Since Paladin tank with holy spell damage, my +130 spell damage one hand sword from Murmur (
) has higher SoR tick and ticks much faster than this weapon.
It however works fine with Warrior.
Get this Baby and a 1.3 or 1.4 Dagger in Offhand. With Combat Potency you melt faces.
I'm almost always on the top of SWstats face to face with a sword specced combat rogue... Sword spec is better than mace spec in raid-pve... i would love to have the same extra attack spec...
does the drakefist buff stack with the blackout truncheon buff?
I wonder if I should go for this weapon as an enhancement shaman or the Axe from blacksmith?
I can't decide if this would make a good tank wep b/c of how slow it is... any thoughts?
The damage shown is incorrect it should be 81.1 DPS 153-258 and the haste rating is 200
Anyone knows if I should take this over my Vindicator's Brand (
) or should i go Swordsmith for Fireguard (
)? My offhand is currently High Warlord's Quickblade (lvl 70
The mace expertise has no parent on the epic BS upgradeables.
His effect makes her scale with your equip, and even if is one of the slowest weapon, devastate has no CD and also most of the skills while tanking (GCD apart).
Slow weapons are great for tanking, this one specially, big crunchy devastates with no CD? hello?
If you are thinking in fury a 20% xtra speed is way much powerfull than the axe and the sword, and this scales with your equip ... better it gets, the more powerfull the 20% speed is. Think on some quick 2.1 off-hand from the arena and make your day.
Finally if arena is your doings, the best option is the 2h MS mace.
It's up to you, but it seems for me like maces are the best.
212 Haste rating is ~20.2% faster attack speed.
Does this haste rating stack with flurry? (+30% attack speed)... that would be really cheato... about 50% attack speed when crit+proc XD
Combat Potency + This proc + Latro's Shifting sword = pwned the speed on it after this proc would be insane giving u so much energy it wouldnt even be funny =].
Interested in haste?
Then here's a list of items that will get you lots of haste easily
-Drops from the semi-final boss in Shadow Lab
-Only Blacksmiths (hammer specced) with 350+ skill can craft and upgrade this baby
Dragonspine Trophy :
-from Gruul the Dragonslayer in Gruul's lair, 25-man boss; very low drop rate
Abacus of Violent Odds:
By the way, there's a soft cap that blizz has on weapon speed, you cannot drop below a 1.0 weapon speed for ANY weapon. Your tooltip may say 0.8 or 0.7 speed, but the faster you can go is 1.0. Thanks for fatmike for that.
And for rogues only .. any 2 pieces of the Assassination set:
Been grinding the mats for this hammer and the upgrades like crazy recently. Now have enough soloable mats and working on nethers (farming heroics) and need only 4 vortex. Lucky enough to be in a guild doing SSC and TK.
Now all I need is BS up to the required lvl and I am good to go with a straight out upgrade from lvl 1 to lvl 3. Cant wait.
All these nice comments, and no mention of proc rate. How often does this badboy proc? I'm considering switching from my Swordsmithing to pick this up to stack with other haste gear, but I'd like to know the proc rate before I do.
farmed the mace in 2 hours - Skald in Blade's edge mountains
the way i farmed it this fast was that i always keep attacking new mobs and then sweeping strikes + whirlwind
i'm respeccing for combat maces, but would you be better off with Dragonmaw and then a Blackout Truncheon, or is there another offhand that i'm not thinking of?
According to one poster, 1.4 procs/min is 14 seconds per minute, is roughly 23% of the time this will be up. 23% of the time, you will have +20% *white* damage. That puts you at a little less than +5% for your white damage, which, however is not the majority as it is for rogues, but 40-50%, making it a rather marginal +2% overall damage and extra burst damage for each proc.
In other words, while it is still the best, it's not by a huge margin if you compare that 2% overall to the persistent stats lost for the proc. You can theorycraft the benefits of the rage and additional HS's, but critting does the same thing, albeit without stacking. I'm sure it's great for an awesome 10 seconds of recklessness executing though.
So i am just about to Boost my BS , is the drakefist worth it? , atm i got the aldor epic sword, should i farm it?
The proc only lowers the speed from 2.7 to 2.38.
Roughly 12% faster, not 20%.
this weapon for pala tanks is really nice. with the fast attackspeed when it procs = more holy dmg (from seal of blood or rightousness) witch in turn = more threat generated
With this weapon, Proc + Flurry + Heroism/Bloodlust it becomes a 1.41 second attack speed.
As of 2.4.2, this weapon is now no longer Unique and it is listed as One-hand, so you may offhand and/or dual wield.
The haste proc does not appear to stack, but the uptime is obviously increased by dual wielding. Combined with flurry for fury warriors, the attack speed drops to 1.9. I haven't enchanted mine with mongoose but I imagine that the lightning speed proc from mongoose would stack as well. This may also stack with haste potion.
Theorycraft needed on whether or not its more beneficial to dual wield drakefists versus dual wielding something with passive stat boosts.
IDK if this weapon is good for an enhancement shaman i woulld think so since it doesnt say UNIQUE but it IS a one hand so u could duel wield it would the buffs stack!!!!!!! just wondering!!
this and thebladefist with its haste rating is HUGE!!!
Here is a quick guide to making this hammer :D
The Hard Materials needed to make the hammer are:
Mote of Fire
Mote of Earth
If your a miner
, the motes of fire and earth can be mined.
Motes of earth can be mined usually from
both rich and normal. It should be noted that eternium ore, which you need to make this hammer, can also come from Adamantite Deposits, as well as other ore veins/deposits.
And from personal experience the best place to farm Adamantite is in
. (This shows the locations of normal adamantite deposits.)
Khorium Ore is by far the hardest of these mats to attain, although the small amount needed makes it worth it. Khorium Ore can be mined from
, I suggest having your epic mount if your going to farm khorium, to make it much less of a pain to get. Khorium veins can be found in all zones of outland, but stay away from Hellfire Peninsula, know also that these are a rare vein, and thus why it is a pain to farm.
For motes of fire, I would check out
, easily the best place to farm
Fel Iron Ore
and motes of fire at the same time. Mined from
Fel Iron Deposits
If your not a miner
, and you need the motes.
They can be farmed from elemental type mobs of there own trade, earth elementals will drop motes of earth, and the same for the motes of fire.
If you have your flying mount you can go to the thrown of elements in the northeast corner of nagrand and farm the elementals there, there are elementals from every type, fire, wind, water, and earth.
If you don't have a flying mount, Fire elementals can be found also in Shadowmoon Valley, just in the center of the map at the base of large mountain, where the lava pits are. You can also find the earth type elementals around there as well.
Enraged Fire Spirts
Enraged Earth Spirits
. (Note: the earth spirits have less of a chance to drop earth motes than the fire spirits do. So if you feel up to it you can find other earth elementals for better drop rates. I suggest this way only because you can farm both at the same time in same area with a decent respawn rate and little to none interferance from pvp. However there is
one quest chain
that may cause some problems, but it was for
attunment i believe and now is not required to complete.)
Good luck! I hope this helps!
how can i learn it or get it at 4.03 patch?
With Cataclysm removing profession specialties, it looks it left a side effect: you can no longer learn how to make this. If knew how to make this weapon before cata went live then you can still make it. However, this weapon is still bind on PICKUP, so you can not find someone who can make it and then get them to /trade it to you.
