this sword is so goddamn cool, why was it kept from us blizzard?
in a more serious note i love how they are adding unused models into the game as the island rewards, keep it up, maybe the unused ulduar weapons next?
"Hnnnggg" in item form.
i want this sword so badly !
Thats a nice sword indeed. Quite the Ulduar+Vrykul vibe. I like it
A list of the greatest greatswords:
Greatsword of the Inferno
- massiest - ogre themed - WoD challenge mode
- thinnest-longest - demon themed - Legion invasions
- vrykul themed - Naxxramas
Plundered Blade of Northern Kings
- vrykul themed - island expeditions
- titan themed - Antorus
Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds
- troll themed - Cataclysm archeology
- old Naxxramas
Feel free to suggest missing two-handed swords that fit the list. Legion artifact skins like the Blade of the Sky Champion are not included because they can't be linked in Wowhead.
Awesomeness of a 2 hander but the handle of a 1 hander which completely ruins this sword...I swear to god i could make 80% of all 2h swords in WoW look 10x better if i was working at Blizz.
Looking at the class/spec drops, if I play a survival hunter, this will never be a possibility for the drops/rewards I can get? I have to make one of the classes/specs that are listed instead?
Where we can get this sexy blade ?
Got it today from Heroic Island Expedition. That's where you can get it
Got it at the end of a Heroic Island Expedition on my Outlaw Rogue. It looks like any class can get it no matter the loot specialization!
Dropped today for my GF who is playing a Disc Priest, so it can drop on any class (Was a HC Island Expedition)
Does this only drop on heroic expeditions? Can it drop on normals? Do you have to be max level?
Dropped for* me on my lvl 116 Shaman, immediately got 300k offer for it. I've put it on AH for 500k and hopefully can sell it.
Picked this up today as a 120 prot pally in a normal expedition, there was ONE vrykul rare on the island, I assume that's where it came from.
Dropped on my first ever island expedition (normal) as a 116 hunter (so can drop for any class). Grateful since I plan on maining my warrior this xpac.
We killed 3-4 rares, one of which was a Vrykul so I second the opinion on that as a potential source.
I just received this on my lvl 112 holy priest, on normal difficulty after killing thorvast, guided by the stars, and other vrykul invaders from the tier 3 invasion, this was the second time i received it as it had dropped 2 days before that on my 118 mage. sadly i cant recall the names of the rares on my mage but it was a vrykul invasion. this was on my 191th expedition.
I got one the other day from a NORMAL Island run, we won the run. There was only 1 group of Vrykul on the island with 1 rare. We killed them, and I got this on that run. I was on my 120 rogue.
I sold one a month ago for 50k. Never again I'll sell this kind of stuff without checking the AH first.
I can confirm that it can show up on your mission board after obtaining a treasure map form completing your 5ish island expeditions for the week. It is a rare blue mission. It also happend to be on a Vrykul island week, so im not sure if that matters or not. I have been wanting this for some time, I'm glad this method was added in 8.1 for obtaining it.
I can confirm that it drops on any difficulty. It can even drop on 110 characters as I have just achieved.
Vrykuls are your best friend if you want this sword! rng suck but still... I got it from mythic island btw
I just want to confirm that as of 8.3 this CAN drop from
. In fact I just looted TWO from a single crate.
For the longest time, I thought this sword was "bent" but just now realize its more like scissors.
Just got this out of the
, looks like its worth a few bob on the AH!
