Scale of the Sands (hyjal) reputation has a set of epic rings similar to The Violet Eye (Karazhan) and AQ40 ring sets. I am not positive if these rings also increase with reputation, but I would bet on it.
This ring drops from Kael'thas in The eye.
Anyone (Horde) who gets this should equip it in front of Sylvannas. I doubt anything will happen, but it doesn't hurt to try.
Love it! Infact i love all items which has somekind of relation to lore. "Garona´s signet ring" for example... i´m a little rp nerd so like being decked out in gear that "famous" people have worn ^^
tested speaking with Sylvanas in Undercity on the PTR with this equiped, no reaction.
too bad, being part of the Forsaken, I'd hoped for something, at least a "eyh, that's my ring, but you deserve it" :(
Note that the flavor-text spells it "Sylvannas" instead of Sylvanas.
This typo has been fixed.
The spelling of her name never changed. It's a typo.
Confirmed that the spelling of Sylvanas on this item is incorrect. Both Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne use the "Sylvanas" spelling consistently. "Sylvannas" never appears.
I can only speculate about this ring but from what I know I can guess that Kael'thas has gained this ring from Sylvanas' body when he was leaving the ruins of Quel'Thalas, destroyed by Death Knight Arthas and his Scourge. It was also Arthas who "killed" Lady Sylvanas and ripped her soul out to turn her into a banshee. Later though she has returned to her body becoming a Dark Ranger. She was not a Ranger-General anymore and the loss of the ring symbolises it as well, I suppose.
My guess is that Kael has found her body on his way out of Quel'Thalas roughly at the same time when he has salvaged his father's skull to take it with himself to the Tempest Keep in Outland.
But why did he do that? I haven't found any remarks about relations of Sylvanas and Keal'thas but who knows how much of a story does Blizzard have for us to tell?
It's also feasible she wasn't wearing it at the time of her death, and it was retrieved from wherever she kept it when Kael'thas's blood elves evacuated what was left of Quel'thelas.
Does anyone know how the Band of the Ranger-General ended up with Kael'Thas?
I think this ring should fit my druid pretty nice=P
Because my druid is named Sylvianna !
Nice ring btw.
kael'thas and sylvannas perhaps had some sort of relationship?? its always possible...
Actually, according to lore, Kael was in love with Jaina, but lost out to Arthas, though they never were bitter to each other about this. The reason for this is that soon after, Jaina and Arthas broke off so Jaina could focus on her studies.
Perhaps it was an exchange. I can imagine that when Sylvanas was found as the best archer of azeroth, that she got the bow, in exchange for the ring. Really, what does a king need such a bow for? Obviously the bow is used to fight with, since the bow is enchanted to get ammunition on fire without using methods that could make it less effiecient. Such a bow can't be used for hunting, since it would burn the corpse along with as well a part of the enviroment, I reckon.
muhaha, got another version. Arthas took this ring from Sylvanas after she turned into banshee, than lost it during the fight with Illidan, When Vashj and Kael helped Illidan to escape, sniky Kael saw the ring and hid it under his long robes. He never put it on cuz every1 can find out about this accident. When u kill Kael, he falls down and the ring just drops from the pocket.....
But actually that would be interesting to know the thrue story about this ring. Maybe Kael knew Sylvanas much better than we know....
Definetly a enchancement dps shaman like my toon needs it
would be nice if Allakhazam can mark those items as part of their test database instead of the live one.
Same as the content that was coming from the Burning Crusade PTRs.
Drops from Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider. Has done many times for various guilds
The Ultimate fury warrior dream ;-)
well on the PTR it DID come with the hunter box... >.>, although it also came in the rogue box, pretty much... if you dual wield or shoot arrows at things.... you want this.
None should have preference. The only possible reason one class might need it more is too much (or lack thereof) of hit.
hell, best ring ingame so far for Hunters, Rogues, Warriors and Shamans
Because, it's not very common to be having a fury/arms spec warrior in top end instances. Chances are, that warrior is going to be prot specced, therefore, this is not going to be an ideal piece of gear for them.
1) dual wields have the highest miss chance
2) high end rouges come higher than fury warriors in dps (good ones anyway)
3) unlike fury warriors, dont have AP, so could use stam more (ok not a great one, all need stamina)
my 2 cents
you need to see the movie from
if you think that a fury warrior can't dps watch and learn. btw awesome movie.
I think this ring would go to all dps classes, but first hunters cuz of the name xD (joking), well as i said to ALL dps classes.
I agree with the priorities of Fury warrior and rogues getting this over a feral druid but this is still a great ring regardless and would benefit a feral druid greatly.
too bad that this ring is unique ;p
where does this item drop?
Did i miss where this drops from?
This ring is so awesome! I'd definitely try to get this, but I guess *some* of my guildies would be in my way, eh?
Thats the problem with sweet loot, it's in high demand, and everybody wants a pice of it.
I just got this (i'm a rogue) from Kael'thas Sunstrider in TK. It's the best pre-Black Temple Melee DPS ring, I'm pretty sure.
Whats the history of this saying ''This was formely held by Slyvannas Windrunner''?
Only reason I'd say it would be hunter loot is the name. Bad reason, yes.
Therefore, this is a very good ring for about half of the classes in this game. Good Ring overall.
This is basically an improved version of Don Julio's Band.
Haha if your fury warriors are on a par with your rogues then the rogues should get kicked for slacking, this ring is equaly important for a variety of classes and whoever has the most dkp to spend will most likely get it first. Very nice ring but i wont go spending all my dkp on it.
IF YOUR A FURY WORRIOR WHICH WOULD BE BETER THIS OR Unstoppable Aggressor's Ring
