жесть самый лудший сворд!
оч красивый, и порой даже актуальный меч
Один из лучших на 70...
меч мечта любого 70 ретро пала)
Переведено не правильно. Не проявитель, а скорее рассекатель или кромсатель душ.
Син'До, если бы вы знали, "кормятся" именно фэлом, вбирая его из Фэл-Кристаллов, завезенных в Сильвермун. И еще, для справки, фэл - форма арканы. Это Квель'Дорай не фэлом питаются, а стараются пользоваться куда более безопасными формами арканы, как например - Лунные колодцы Кал'Дорай и т.п.
Презренные - это те, кто жрет магию горстями, и не важно какой она формы. А пережравшие фэла - это рогатые Син'До в Терассе Магистров, например.
Согласен. Я был неправ.
Вы все не правы... это СПАРТА!
С сиреневыми камнями лича, скажем по
+20 к силе
+20 к агиле
(а меч не привязан к классу своими статами, сталобыть его спокойно может взять и хантер и агила будет более чем уместна), да с личевским чантом на
+110 к AP
... Убероружие для 70х!
В общем, получив этот меч на 70 - можно просто не думать, что одевать до самых шмоток Катаклизма. Просто не думать, потому что незачем.
По этому мечу и вообще всему эндгейм-шмотку БК хорошо заметно, насколько Ката оторвалась от предыдущих традиций игры. Всё-таки при переходе Ванилла-БК и БК-Лич игроки, одетые в рейдовый топ-шмот могли спокойно не переодеваться первые уровней 5 точно. С вот этим мечом, я так думаю, вполне можно было пойти и в личе-геры и даже в первые рейды. Чего никак не скажешь о Кате. Ах, ну да, там же эти 5 уровней - это уже потолок.
Господи, не ретро а ретрИ! Retribution! Ретро это значит старое, безграмотные вы личности
Большой меч жестокого гладиатора
Выбил своему вару на 70,поставил сокеты 20 к силе,берсерк,и....одел его на арену - и если кто то путается,что одеть - копию меча или этот на арену,то я думаю вы сами угадаете что выбрать - сделали 10 винов подряд )
Очень красивый а возможно и самый красивый ну или хатябы один из самых красивых мечей вселенной вов.
Такой же шикарный меч у прекрасного Кольтиры... <3
On the whole, a rather disappointing two-hander in terms of what melee classes look for. Attack Power instead of Strength, and 3.4 speed is a bit fast.
It's obviously hands down the best two hander ingame, but it leaves much to be desired in terms of itemization.
According to the screenshot on MMO-Champion taken on live servers, it seems to have been quickened to 3.4, from the 3.5 shown above.
I'm not a very good MS-Warrior, but isn't 3.4 a bit too fast?
, this is the best Blood Elf ret paladin weapon ingame.
As for a hunter, this thing is rly not a upgrade from the polearm which drops from trash. You get more agility of it, enough haste on it and AP is also comparable to this sword. I would let the warriors have their two-hander for once :P...
I am the only one who belives this 3.4 is TOP with x3 on flurry?
Dropped for The Seven on June 1st, 2008 at 7:11 PM CET.
No, 3.4 is not too fast.
In terms of end game pve 2h Swords/Axes/Maces are basically going to be itemized with 3 class/specs in mind: Ret Paladins, MS warriors (Blood Frenzy bots), and Hunters.
Given the lack of agility and the much better and much more readily accessible Shivering Felspine, it's clear this isn't a hunter weapon.
With the haste on the weapon itself, this is essentially a 3.34 speed weapon with the highest top end in the game. From the standpoint of a Blood Frenzy warrior, 3/5 flurry brings the speed down to 2.83, which is good for the standard dps rotation of 4x slam, 2x ms, 1x ww.
Normal rotation would look like this (assuming the average .1 second lag time on slam & 100% flurry up time)
0.0 - White attack
0.6 - Slam (Swing reset)
1.6 - Mortal Strike
3.43 - White Attack
4.03 - Slam (Swing reset)
5.03 - Whirlwind
6.86 - White Attack
7.46 - Slam (Swing reset)
7.6 - Mortal Strike off cooldown
8.46 - Mortal Strike
10.29 - White Attack
10.89 - Slam (Swing reset)
11.89 - Open GCD
13.12 - White Attack
13.60 - Mortal Strike off cooldown
13.72 - Slam (Swing Reset)
14.72 -Mortal Strike...
Given this rotation and lag time it still leaves .33 seconds of open GCD after each special attack which is nice for extra lag/reaction time. Some of this could also be readily filled with the haste rating on the very nice Onslaught Boots and Belt, as well as some of the other Sunwell armor pieces (it would take ~250 haste rating on gear in order to fully compensate, a number that is impractical to reach for given other gearing requirements).
All in all, even considering the quicker speed to the weapon, it's still well within acceptable limits for a Blood Frenzy warrior. It's unfortunate that these circumstances brings the weapon under 3 seconds thus interfering with the cooldown on Windfury, but that is also assuming 100% flurry uptime which may not neccessarily be the case.
On the flip side, quicker auto attacks means more chances to proc sword spec. It's also worth mentioning that as gear upgrades are attained, and more haste rating becomes available, some arms warriors may switch over to a slamless dps rotation utilizing a DST.
A ret paladin going from Shivering Felspine to Apolyon, the Soul-Render will gain;
35+dps ~regardless of faction. Both SoB and SoC will gain that much from swapping these weapons out according to spreadsheets. Making this hands down an amazing retribution paladin weapon.
Oddly enough the speed on this weapon screws around with warriors, esspeically ones using a cats edge. The upgrade from cats edge to Apolyon is very, very small for them. Right now due to this you can find many posts on the warcraft boards like this one;
These posts are suggesting for a slower speed, as some warriors can even see the S4 weapon out dpsing this baby for their spec and rotation.
Smart guilds with the way the sword is at the moment will hand this to their retribution paladin, then their warriors. It is just not enough of an upgrade for a warrior to give it over the ret paladin.
A great Two-hander. Any class that can use it could benefit from it.
US first obtained on June 7 by Metin <V A N Q U I S H> of US Cho'gall. A retribution paladin.
edit in 2022: Y'all know I'm going to get this again in TBC Classic.
Lol my heart goes out to those who voted down my comment. If you love the cartoony weapons WoW keeps churning out lately... my apologies.
Forgive me, but if the top end damage of the weapon is the same as the other swords (in fact it's higher, as far as I know its the highest top end damage weapon in the game) then the damage it deals on an attack like mortal strike will be the same, therefore the speed doesn't matter. It's a better weapon than say the Brutal Gladiator's sword because it would do similar damage in strikes, but you'd strike with white damage more often.
It would be better if it was slower, yes, but it is still a superior weapon damage-wise because you wouldn't lose any damage because of its speed. Think of it as a 3.6 speed weapon with a little more haste.
King James Bible
7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. 9 And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. 10 And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name
If you socket this with 3 +10 Strength gems thats 30 strength equalling 60 attack power.
I'm not sure if strength adds to other stats too, but it would definatley be nice to see some more on this sword rather than a ghastly 100+ AP.
Personaly this weapon makes a great pally weapon because of its high damage which makes crusaders strike a bit more powerful.
Blizzard needs to redesign the stats on this item as follows:
Apolyon, the Soul-Render
Binds when picked up
416 - 625 Damage Speed 3.50
(148.7 damage per second)
Socket Bonus: +6 Stamina
Durability 120 / 120
Requires Level 70
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 42 (1.9% @ L70).
Equip: Your attacks ignore 224 of your opponent's armor.
Equip: Increases attack power by 126.
If you went through the hoops to down Muru and the last boss before L80, you deserve a weapon that is truly superior. The S4 sword should not share its graphic either.
Sword currently appears not to take a glow from enchants (i.e. no lightning effect from Mongoose). Whether this is intented or a bug, I don't know.
This is an excellent choice for fury warrior looking ahead to utilize it with the WotLK talent 'Titan's Grip'. The 3.4 speed and 2.03% haste will serve the talent well!
GL getting one!
this exactly what I want to say: titan's grip. I am lvl 45 atm so not even my wet dreams can conceive a blade like this one, but Sul'thraze I can see around the corner... and it got me thinking. so I wanted to see what is the best 2handed sword in the game till now. this sword feels like it's made for titan's grip fury warrs! it will sure make whirlwind alot more fun! :))
You guys realize there's gonna be better 2H weapons at lv 80, right? So saying that "this goes well with Titan's Grip" is quite a redundant comment...
Also, with many balance fixes, or with the present mechanics... this one might/should be changed to Unique due to the fact that many top end dps 1Hers are Unique...
"It's unfortunate that these circumstances brings the weapon under 3 seconds thus interfering with the cooldown on Windfury, but that is also assuming 100% flurry uptime which may not neccessarily be the case."
Just thought I'd point out that the windfury totem effect doesn't have the 3 second internal cooldown; that is only for shaman's windfury weapon buff. There is no cooldown on the windfury totem effect.
This along with the S4 weapons, this the only optainable item in game with greater than 600 top end!
This is a hunter weapon and a ret paladin weapon because they will both use it in there main raiding set warriors however you will never see one using a two hander before they get titans grip.
This has got to be an arms/sub priest weapon.
Seeing that it is not unique, I would love dual wielding those on my warrior once 3.0 arrives.
Sorry to say but this is clearly made for hunters.
i hate how i can never get this amazing sword i go raid SWP and we never do kiljaedan only twins and brut
This may be nice to dual wield come WOTLK. If the speed is a bit too fast, make it an offhand, and throw a Cataclysm's Edge MH. Or use two since they're not unique, and the damage output would still be great, assuming you have a lot of +hit (which everyone should anyway).
At the very least, Apolyon will be a great stat placeholder for TG warriors, and it's far from being a bad weapon.
hunter weapon imo look at that ap and stuff and with 3 20 ap gems in there this would be beastly
Saw an arms warrior with TG duel wielding these in AB. At first glance, I thought it was yet another warrior with warglaives. I was wrong. 2 swipes is all it took. My poor mage didn't have a chance :(
TG is fury.... But yet, dual wielding these with savagery on both and 3 +10 str sockets in each, all in all will give you: 252 ap + 2x 70 ap + 6x 10 str= 516 AP... 148.7 dps in both hands, 64 haste and 84 crit rating. I just say OMG
this sword got the name of a demon god in greek history the name by which he is called
in "Pilgrim's Progress".
rofl 2 of the swords= epic pwnage!
It's not unique so warriors with titans grip can equip two of them at the same time! O.O
You would look like a complete bad ass with two of these things equipped!
The highest stamina weapon in the game for death knights who don't have access to deadly gladiator gear; if I had one, I'd totally use it in my sarth tanking set :-)
How much Dmg would a titans grip warrior with 2 of these with 3 16 strength gems in each and 85 ap enchants on each, have`?
I think that this sword is rather comparable ( only because of the sockets, that is ) to lvl 80 blues and I am definitely getting this on my Paladin. I guess just because dual-spec is coming soon, and I really love raiding Sunwell Plateau. I mean, this and Thori'dal are pretty much the only reasons to raid the place, aside from some trinkets.
And if nothing, it has a value akin to the good old T6 sets. They're simply gorgeous.
I think this would be a great thing to use for DK 2-h tankin at 80. My DK is currently dw spec'd for easier d cap, but my offspec is gonna be a 2h spec with a lot of stam and he's a JC
so the sword has 75 stam normally,
three JC sockets, so that 123 stam there,
and the socket bonus of 9 stam
that makes 207 stam!
but... you may have a little bit of a threat problem due to its low at power and end dmg cause its a 70 epic, and equivilent to an 80 green in dmg.
- nothing more to say, i think..
this would be a great hunter item if you add x3 delicate dragons eyes
best weapon in tbc?
Call me crazy, but i think this might be able to create a very powerful weapon.
If you're a hunter, lets say and you almost never melee, but hit a lot of range, using this with 3x
or if you're a Jewlcrafter
could create a 246 Attack Power weapon or 330 with Jewlcrafter's gems. although the Jewlcrafters gems could easily fill another slot in armor or otherwise.
o.o i love the look... it needs to be level 80 so people can see it again :l
For the alliance ToC raiders, On the FC, You can see that the Paladin is wielding this sword.
Just a Fun fact I though i'd throw in there :]
It's the first weapon that I've seen which actually looks like the picture and it happens to be the best level 70 two handed sword.
Anyone know if any enchant shows on this weapon?
Go to the screenshots tab and look at screenshot number 4... Good job. :D
Apolyon will throw its extra AP at Shadowmourne!
. Instant own!
Lol it was my favorite item in TBC days :)
This sword is SO epic that it needs remake in cataclysm!
This weapon is easily the best 2her at level 70. It has the highest DPS and highest top end damage of any weapon until level 78 item level 187 rares from non heroic 5 mans.
Just got this today, got Brutal Gladiators Greatsword and transmoged it into Apolyon and I now class myself as the Dual Wielder of Apolyon lol
This sword (well, the model anyway) is wielded by
Кольтира Ткач Смерти
in a few of his phases. He uses a different weapon in the death knight starting area, but as far as I remember he uses this everywhere else.
OMG for a transmorg 2 hander...this is awsome!
Considering that this item has no lore attached to it I'm going to make something up.
Apolyon, the Soul-Render is fashioned from Adamantite and Fel-Steel, and tempered with the blood of Kil'jaeden himself. The ultimate fel weapon, Apolyon's fabrication was to act as a weapon to rend the soul of the mortal and assimilate them into the Scourge.
Apolyon is discovered on Kil'jaeden's body upon his defeat with unexpected characteristics of its original creators. The journey through the Sunwell has purified the blade, its Fel power fully intact yet non-addictive or harmful to it's mortal wielder.
Revise or improve at your discretion.
I noticed the handle and hilt do sort of go well with the paladin tier set from Firelands.
This sword does not show enchant effects or illusions.
we can see god apolyon for everything we know this god of sun have very great soul render
Just ran this as BM hunter and Apolyon dropped, and was added to my collection for tmog. Just confirming.
I got very lucky back around the time of Wrath when this dropped! :D
