На топоре не написано, но он увеличивает дамаг на 1% за каждую поглощённую душу.
Души поглощает из демонов и гуманоидов, не элитных. Это по какой-то причине не написано нигде, есть смутная подсказка в описании оружия, мол кормите душами.
Для проверки - убиваете любого гуманоида любого лвл и ищете баф))
В сравнении с другими артефактами танкинга - самый худший варинт на нынешнее состояние в Легионе. Вы будете вынуждены постоянно заниматься самолечением (что по идее должен делать лекарь).
Минимально возможное (по сути почти нет) количество способностей значительно предотвращающих урон в нужный для вас момент (в тоже время у других классов есть).
В сочетании с талантами половина которых почти никогда не используется, а другая половина требует усиления - этот танковый класс 1-й кандидат на сильные изменения в будущих патчах.
Либо его механику сильно переработают, либо кровавых рыцарей будет минимум в рейдах.
Брутальный топор. Жаль, что такого типа оружия в игре мало. Завидую дк. Хнык-хнык.
Близы не забыли про лор который вписали этому топору! (выдал по убийству КЖ)

Can anybody explain to me what "Blood damage" is? A new school of magic? like arcane or holy?
Every single Artifact has a hidden trait or perk that is undocumented, and meant to be discovered by players on their own.
For this weapon, its hidden perk is this spell:
Пожирателю нужна пища
Whenever you kill a non-elite humanoid or demon enemy, you get a stacking buff that increases damage done by 1% per stack. Up to 10 stacks can be maintained at once. Buff lasts 30 seconds, and is refreshed whenever a new kill is made.

From Libram of the Dead on Maw of the Damned:
Mere weapons don't often inspire fear in demons. The Maw of the Damned is an exception. Its name is spoken with equal parts dread and awe among the Burning Legion's faithful. Even the demons disagree on how many lives the Maw of the Damned has ended. There is only one who knows the truth. His name is Netrezaar, and his soul is bound to the blade itself.
He is what inspires fear in demons. They know of the eternal hunger that burns in his soul. A hunger so great, it cannot distinguish between friend and foe. In the Legion's hands, Netrezaar's spirit consumed entire civilizations. In someone else's hands, he would not hesitate to do the same to the Legion. He would relish every moment.
Despite its long history of bloodshed, the Maw of the Damned was not created for genocide. It was forget to take a single life: that of the great demon lord Kil'jaeden.
Kli'jaeden was one of the eredar race's most beloved leaders. With a mere word, he could sway the hearts and minds of his people. When he joined the demonic Burning Legion, many eredar blindly followed his path.
One of the first to do so was a gifted smith named Netrius. He adored Kil'jaeden, and he spent his life seeking the eredar leader's approval. Netrius saw pledging himself to the Legion as the ultimate expression of his loyalty.
As a reward for this loyalty, Netrius was remade in the Legion's all-consuming fel fire. Volatile magics blazed through his soul, warping his mind and body forever.
Netrius-now known by the name Netrezaar-was never same again. Even his feelings toward Kil'jaeden changed. What was once admiration had twisted into a dangerous obsession. It wasn't enought to simply win Kil'jaeden's approval. He needed more.
An idea took shape in Netrezaar's mind. To satisfy his obsession, he would create a weapon to consume Kil'jaeden's life force. That weapon would one day become known as the Maw of the Damned.
Netrezaar became a smith of much renown in the Burning Legion. His war machines terrorized worlds. His blades brought ruin to entire civilizations. Yet in truth, most of these weapons were merely experiments in his quest for the perfect tool with which to consume Kil'jaeden.
Success hinged on finding a material that could draw out and contain the demon lord's life force. Netrezaar spent years searching for exotic ores, most of which proved useless.
He made a promising discovery on Nihilam, the Doom World. Long ago, a war between the Legion's ruler, Sargeras and his fellow titans had shaken the fabric of creation around Nihilam. Their apocalyptic battle had darkened the world and infused its metal ores with otherworldly properties.
When Netrezaar mined these metals, he found them nearly indestructible. In just the right light, the materials reflected brief images of the battle fought between Sargeras and the titans. Most important of all, these meals also leeched away the essence of any living thing that touched them.
For the first time in years, Netrezaar felt joy. He had finally found what he needed.
Netrezaar shaped the Maw of the Damned on one of the great demon forges of Argus, homeworld of the eredar. When crafting other weapons, he often infused them with cruely and malice. Such was not the case with the Maw. Netrezaar poured all of his admiration and twisted obsession into the blade.
He labored day and night, pushing himself to the brink of collapse. Perfection was his goal. He would accept nothing less for the weapon that would kiss Kil'jaeden's flesh. The axe would leech away every ounce of the demon lord's life force and channel it directly into Netrezaar. Nothing would go to waste. He also enchanted the weapon's haft so that when he wielded the axe, its metals would not drain his essence.
When the work was done, Netrezaar has produced one of the greatest weapons in the Legion's arsenal. Nothing like it had ever been seen before, and nothing like it wuld ever be seen again.
The Maw of the damned's first victim was not Kil'jaeden. It was one of Netrezaar's servants.
Netrezaar commanded dozens of mo'arg, highly resourceful demons who specialized in engineering and blacksmithing. All of them looked up to eredar smith with awe, but he cared little for his followers. Like hammers and tongs, they were simply tools at his disposal.
To test the Maw, Netrezaar subjected a pair of mo'arg to gruesome experiments. He slowly cut their flesh with the axe, studying how quickly it drained their life force. The Maw worked just as planned. The demons' vital energies passed through the blade and flooded into Netrezaar.
Of the two mo'arg experimented on by Netrezaar. one survived. His name was Gorelix. and he was the eredar smith's most devoted follower. At least, he had been. The experiments had left Gorelix shriveled and disfigured. His admiration for Netrezaar darkened into a hatred hotter than any demon forge.
Gorelix did not have the physical strength to rise against Netrezaar. Even if he could, rebelling would mean a fate worse than death. Netrezaar was one of the eredar-one of Kil'jaeden's chosen.
The broken mo'arg vowed to find another way to exact vengeance on his master. He watched Netrezaar's every movement, seeking a weakness. Over time. Gorelix discovered something odd. Netrezaar's axe was powerful. and yet he would not use it in battle. He kept it hidden from other demons, save his mo'arg servants. What was its purpose. if not to strike down the Legion's enemies?
It dawned on Gorelix that Netrezaar had no intention of ever using the axe for the Legion. He had crafted it for another purpose.
Netrezaar was pleased with the Maw. and he decided the time had come to use it on Kil'jaeden. He would present the axe as a gift to his master and then strike at the unsuspecting demon lord.
Perhaps it would have worked. if not for Gorelix. When the mo'arg learned of the meeting with Kil'jaeden. the last puzzle piece slid into place. He finally realized the true purpose of Netrezaar's axe.
He warned Kil'jaeden of the impending betrayal. and the demon lord plotted his own in return. Kil'jaeden met with Netrezaar just as planned. But before the smith could present his "gift." the demon lord struck. He used his magics to lock Netrezaar's spirit in place. while Gorelix took up the Maw.
As Netrezaar's screams of torment echoed over Argus. Gorelix slowly cut away his master's flesh. He did not stop until only bone remained.
I'm sorry, I couldn't fit additional parts due to character limit (and replies are even more limited)
Put this in a macro to open up your artifact weapon talent tree directly:
My biggest problem with this weapon is that the skull faces the wrong when sheathed.
As I was passing a
at the Garden of the Moon in Val'Sharah, she said:
"Please, Death Knight. Do not defile this sacred place with that wicked axe you wield. I can feel its hunger from here."
There was also a Dalaran Citizen who said:
"The skull on that axe looks... hungry."
And a Val'Sharah Refugee:
"That axe you carry... is it a Legion weapon? Are you certain you can control its hunger?"
If you reset your artifact weapon (the talents/traits) you DONT lose any artifact power except for the artifact power you pay for the reset!
Recorded it myself.
Blood DK's get an Eredar axe forged with the intention of absorbing Kil'Jaeden's life force, Unholy DK's get a Nathrezim runeblade which is almost as powerful as Frostmourne, and Frost DK's get two blades forged from the remnants of Frostmourne itself.
Is there anything not bad*ss about these three?
The Maw of the damned also has another hidden effect. When doing the exodar legion invasion scenario of
, The maw of the damned will add more blood particles to your character and the surrounding landscape as you destroy a legion invasion portal.
I got an interesting emote in ToS when i approached Kil'Jaeden as a blood dk: "The Maw of the Damned begins to tug at your grip as you approach the Deceiver."
And upon defeating KJ the Spirit of Natrezaar whispers: "At long last! Revenge..... Revenge is mine!"
Natrezaar is the one who originally forged the Maw of the Damned and wanted to kill Kil'Jaeden with it, but he got betrayed by his apprentice and KJ killed him and imprisoned his soul in to the weapon.
...in continuation from @Kellei post...
Part 7: Netrezaar's fate was worse than death. Kil'jaeden made sure of that. He locked Netrezaar's howling spirit within the smith's own skull. Then he ordered Gorelix to fuse the bone onto the Maw of the Damned.
In this way, Netrezaar would be one with his beloved axe forever. The weapon's metals would constantly drain his spirit, leaving him racked with hunger. No amount of life force would ever satisfy him. To the contrary, the more Netrezaar consumed, the worse his pangs of hunger would grow.
Kil'jaeden gifted the axe to Gorelix as a reward for his loyalty. He gave the mo'arg only one specific order: keep Netrezaar's spirit fed to continue his torture.
Gorelix experimented with the axe, using it to draw the life essence from the Legion's prisoners. The energies drained by the Maw of the Damned were often too much for Netrezaar's spirit to consume. What was left over flowed into Gorelix himself, and strength gradually returned to his broken form.
As word of the axe and its origins spread, demons referred to its prisoner as Netrezaar the Damned. It was from this moniker that Gorelix renamed the weapon.
He called it the Maw of the Damned.
Part 8: On a small world under siege by the Legion, Gorelix learned of the Maw's true power and potential.
He and a team of mo'arg had been tasked with building a citadel to serve as a base of operations. In one battle, this stronghold came under attack from the world's brave defenders. A massive breach opened in the wall. If the mo'arg could not repair it soon, the entire citadel would fall to the Legion's enemies.
Gorelix volunteered to defend the breach while the other mo'arg worked. Hundreds of enemies stormed the opening in the wall, howling battle cries in their alien tongue. Gorelix stood fast, rending any who came within the Maw's deadly reach. He never flagged. On the contrary, every kill infused his body with greater strength and vitality.
When the last attacker had fallen, the other mo'arg found that they no longer needed to repair the breach. Gorelix had filled it with corpses.
Part 9: The more Gorelix used the Maw, the more it changed him. He grew into a hulking mass of taut muscle, dwarfing every other mo'arg in size. His monstrous appearance earned him a new name: the Fleshripper.
Despite the power the Maw gave him, there were times when Gorelix did not use the axe. Sometimes he would watch from a distance while the Legion besieged new worlds. All the while, Gorelix would taunt Netrezaar's spirit, describing the battle and all the lives lost in great detail.
When the Maw began to physically tremble in Gorelix's hands, he knew that Netrezaar's spirit was suffering. The mo'arg found as much satisfaction from these acts of torture as he did from imbibing the life force of his victims.
Part 10: On the world of Centralis, the Maw of the Damned secured its place as a weapon of legend.
Centralis was home to a mighty warrior people. They resisted the Legion's attempts at conquest for much longer than other races. Yet like all who stood against the demons, they were doomed to fall eventually.
Rather than simply destroy Centralis's inhabitants, Kil'jaeden decided they would make fitting victims for the Maw of the Damned. Their potent life essence would engorge Netrezaar's spirit and push him to new realms of torment.
At Kil'jaeden's command, Gorelix traveled to Centralis. He marched at the head of a vast Legion army, Maw in hand. The blade bit through the armor, flesh, and souls of all who fell under his gaze. No corner of Centralis was safe from Gorelix's reach. No creature, not even the smallest wild beast, was shown mercy.
When his long march had ended, only a dead world remained at his back.
Part 11: After the massacre of Centralis, Gorelix continued learning how to maximize the Maw's destructive power. So effective was he at wielding the axe that he became one of the Legion's most invaluable tools. Rather than waste Gorelix's talents in minor battles, Kil'jaeden saved the mo'arg for special tasks.
This also allowed Kil'jaeden to keep close watch over the Maw and its whereabouts. Though he trusted Gorelix, he could not bear the thought of the axe falling into enemy hands.
While in Gorelix's care, the Maw claimed countless victims. No matter how much Netrezaar's spirit feasted, his wild screams continued echoing through the axe. Even demons began to fear the Maw and its cursed prisoner. They had seen the weapon consume entire races. An entire world. Yet still it wanted more.
Whether Netrezaar's hunger will ever die is unknown.
Looks really bad when sheated on Draenei Females unfortunately.
