this is WOTLK
Fel Iron Bar
equivalent with the exception that it requires one ore instead of 2 to create a bar.
yep new mining/blacksmithing metals
"Although cobalt is an essential element for life in minute amounts, at higher levels of exposure it shows mutagenic and carcinogenic effects similar to nickel (see Cobalt Poisoning ).
Powdered cobalt in metal form is a fire hazard."
Are you sure you want to smelt and wear armor made of this stuff? o.O
I once read that Draenei blood is tinted blue by cobalt in the same way that human blood is made red by iron.
well, in the warcraft universe, High elves, blood elves, humans, Mag'Har orcs, dwarves, gnomes, and night elves genetic coding for hemoglobin uses iron along with almost all natural Azzerothian and draenor creatures (anyone know what troll blood is colored? seriously, i dont)
orcs, fel orcs, and fel blood elves use copper (copper can be red, orange, or mint green)
draenei use cobalt in their genetic coding
and for those who wonder why we can wear this and thorium armor (although seriously, thorium is both radioactive and weighs too much to wear in solid breastplates, which are already 10 pounds using aluminum), is because its a solid, not a powder, and what you mine in slithus is depleted thorium, not enough to kill you
based on lore trolls with that crazy body regenaration must have Uranium in their blood !O.o?
is it one or two ore for one bar? looks like its just one :p
I would not go to compare World of Warcraft to real life, since there is so many things that makes sense from point of view of our world (ie. metal names, rarities etc.)
Anyhow, this appears to be First metal that is mined from outlands and seems to be way more useful than Fel Iron was in TBC, as you can make quite few different sets froms this metal (set with similar names, but not with bonuses atleast yet)
I am really interested to see how rare this stuff will be.
Dont be fooled by the Price that Wowhead is giving, atm iv seen prices for ores/bars/herbs go up to 300g per stack...
Great money maker for those who sell this stuff, but !@#$ for anyone who has to buy their materials for a living to get their proffs up.
Hopefully when the WotLK craze dies down, the prices will turn to something reasonable.
Looks like PEZ
I ate one. It didn´t taste that good. And my stomach hurts...
Day 3 after eating the cobalt bar:
My stomach hurts even worse and I haven´t been able to go to the bathroom in 3 days. I have also felt very tired.
My stomach hurts. And I have a strange urge to go north all the time.
My skin is starting to get blue and yesterday I got stuck to a magnet for about 3 hours before I got away. I feel even worse than that time I drank 15 bottles of
Barlett´s bitter brew
Day 15: I´m bluer than that woman in X-man and I´m almost flying north towards Northrend. By some reason I have a large pack of mechanicals hanging after me screaming "Brother"
Iron... Need more iron... iiiiirooooooon...

"This book was found in Dragonblight not far from the black dragonshire by an alliance soldier called 'Wyrmbait'. We belive that there might be some clues to the sudden increase of black dragons in storm peaks and we have already sent a group of soldiers led by Gryan Stoutmantle to check the places mentioned. We don't have any information about this 'Master'"

Sounds like a quest in tribute to Dr. Logan from Day of the Dead.
Maybe the gnomes can mess with it and make cobalt bombs!
similar protein that makes certain

Hemocyanins (also spelled haemocyanins) are respiratory proteins in the form of metalloproteins containing two copper atoms that reversibly bind a single oxygen molecule (O2). Oxygenation causes a color change between the
Cu(I) deoxygenated form and the
Cu(II) oxygenated form. Hemocyanins carry oxygen in the hemolymph of most molluscs, and
some arthropods, including the horseshoe crab
, Limulus polyphemus.
They are second only to hemoglobin in biological popularity of use in oxygen transport.
Unlike the hemoglobin in red blood cells found in vertebrates, hemocyanins are not bound to blood cells but are instead suspended directly in the hemolymph.

Their blood is blue due to the fact that the protein (
