10 more dps than the nearest gun... I'm amazed.
Only very slightly better then the gun from Ouro. Compared to the difficultly factor of each boss Ouro gun is where its at...
With aimed shot resetting auto shot rotation, this is now the second best ranged weapon in the game. Hunter's rotation will now include arcane shot, which benefits from AP, so it should give a nice dps boost. Oh yea and as of 2.0 the stats for the bow are:
123 - 229 Damage Speed 2.90
(60.7 damage per second)
Durability 90 / 90
Requires Level 60
Equip: Increases your critical strike rating by 14.
Equip: Increases attack power by 16.
i do not know much about the chest its dropped from but...
IF you manage to kill the 4 horsemen (800k health and a ton of damage)
wouldnt you still have to beat the 30-40 people also rolling for the item?
I am really surprised that no one has commented about the bow looking an awful lot like diablo, I mean it has the soulstone in the forehead, and the facial structure.
the icon looks like Diablo's skull,wont you aggree?
better than the hunter epic bow since its the same speed. you can use it until lvl 70. very lucky if you raid nax and very lucky if you get it.
When will Blizzard realise, that the speed of the bow is sooo critical when it comes to Hunters. Give us another 3.40+ speed weapon instead of producing this decent, but faster bows. Knowing Nerubian Slavemaker is 3.20 is ok, but still, it would have been better if it were slower or the same speed as Ash'je.
Ah well, this bow looks awesome and I'm sure it'll make some people very happy.
It drops from the Four Horsemen in Naxxramas by the way.
This very good weapon has dropped off of the Four horsemen in Naxxramas, thrid to last boss....but depends on how you look at it :)
Wow, the game has been out for 2+ yrs and you guys are still going on about ranged weapons and who gets priority. That is truly impressive. Anyone who can make it to Naxx, and has a guild capable of taking down the boss that drops this, and has the DKP to spend on will either 1) know who in the guild this bow should go to or 2) be told by the guild leadership who this bow should go to. In the guilds who can obtain this weapon, I don't forsee a lot of discussion on who gets this weapon. Unless of course every Hunter passes on it because they choose to.
My guess is anyone who spends this much time going on about who should and should not get this bow has absolutely no chance what so ever of getting it for at least 3 Naxx Nurfs and 1 expansion pack.
if you are in a guild that makes as far as the point to get this bow, you will only see hunters get this. most of guild know whats the best for each class, anyway most of you will never see it drop, and the ones who see it, will always see it goes to a hunter.
The striker bow PWNS all except for the Slavemaker, but if youve been through all 60 lvl's on bows there is no reason to go to the Slavemaker because soon it will be gone and the new better lvl 70 weapons will be out, and all of your 60 chars will be lvling again.
Now if you didnt stick with bows then the slavemaker is easly the way to go because its DPS is accualy around 59.3with a ROF(rate of fire) of 2.73(thats with a 15% quiver XD) which is the slowest weapon out there meaning
A) you'll get huge crits
B) Your aimed shot will nearly match the speed meaning you dont lose more than 1 or 2 shots a fight
and C) youll be feared and PWNING! all the stupid shamans...there so anyoing, why wont they die...
o, and to all you greedy noobs, WTF would you roll on mail once you past lvl 40, mail items of the monkey should be hunter first i mean were the only mail wears on the allince side!
Why should this go to anyone but a Hunter? I meen common no one but Hunters have this the classes like warrior rogue etc that can only shoot 1 arrow at a time need to get a bow/crossbow/gun that does a lot of damage they dont need to worry about DPS there-fore Hunter wep
But this also has stamina and AP which translates into strength. Along with the critical strike chance, this would make a great addition for a Fury Warrior. Of course, first and foremost it should go to hunters, but if none of them want it, warrior's choice.
lol...that was funny...this bow looks AMAZING
ok here goes some precious time:S,
ive seen alot of comments suggesting that a hunter should actually pass on this bow... ive got 3 words for it... What The Hell?
imo if a hunter should pass on this for a warrior or rogue i think warriors shamans and paladins should all pass on dark egde of insanity.
blizzard should then give us the ability to wear a shield and all the warriors and rogues should then stand 30 yards away just watching a hunter tank Kel'thuzad while they shoot away 1 arrow every 2.9 seconds... then when the healers forget to heal for 0.0000005 seconds the raid will whipe and we can all dance around a spirit resser.
yep sounds like a great idea lets do it!
50.9 dps per sec.............. everyone fusses about everything in the whole world isnt a hunter wep.... what is there hunters can use then? i guess everyone thinks hunters should just use sticks for weps. and another thing i wanna clear up is....the reson 90% hunters are ninjas is because no one ever lets them have any kind of wep.that cant use dkp on a melee or ranged wepwithout SOMEONE in the guild giving them s****.this is Comming from a 60 fury warr and a 60 rsto shaman. personally i feel bad for hunters, they lead the dps meter and everyone gives them bull .
p.s. WoW stop being jerks to hunters
Hey guys this is my first post on thottbot so i know i'll be getting ripped into on it :P
ANYWAYS, here it goes......
With the new expansion comming out weapon speed wont be valued as much as before cause aimed shot will reset our auto attack anyways, making it less usefull than it is currently. HOWEVER there will be a new shot given to hunters to replace this with a 1.5 casting speed, making it very usable. Now a weapon like this will be more highly valued than say....
Anyways that was my two-bits....have fun ripping into me like tinny tim would a christmas ham :D
ZOMFGBBQSaucePWNDTY HUNTER WEAPON!
If a bow is an upgrade for a hunter, the hunter has prio. Period. Who gives a sh*t if there are better ranged weapons further in the instance/game.
That means hunters should never get prio on anything since there will always be a better weapon? Which will go for all other classes too, sorry rogues, no prio on Fang of the Faceless or whatever, there's upgrades in the next instance.
That's complete bullcrap tbh.
Ok why is like almost every ranged weapon at 60 that i see that has like increase crit and attack power, rogues and warriors r fightin over whos this is. That dude is right if u roll for this ur a dumn ass. If u want to use it make a hunter and raise him to level 60
If ANY rouge/warr EVER rool need on this beautiful hunter only weapon, they must quit playing WoW 4 evah!
I noticed one or two comments earlier about hunters not getting nerfed and it was the player's fault. Well for some this is true, but the most recent patch, 2.0.3 I believe, has changed that. The ENTIRE patch was devoted to one thing and one thing only. NERFING HUNTERS. Nothing else. I just wanted to put that out there.
Do you guys think they will pump up this bow and put it in the toned down Naxx in WotLK? I would enjoy that :)
its not a dang Rogue wpn what about a DW warrior?
wow.... go go hunter itemization? going from MC loot (rhok) to naxx loot, a hunter stands to gain 6sta and a whooping 6.9 dps. grats, I cant wait to do naxx.
I'm Humera and yes its a drop from the 4 Horsemen.
where the hell do u get it...?
I think the name of this bow was changed from 'Bow of the Four Horsemen' to 'Soulstring'
I hope this isn't upside down if a male nigh elf uses it

Too bad this is worse than Ouro's gun for a hunter. GG itemization.
Doubtful for a few reasons, but mostly because of the speed. The stated DPS on bows fails to account for optimal hunter builds and preferred shot rotations. As a consequence, weapons like the Carapace Spined Crossbow from Strath outperform purples with rated DPS up to 8 dps higher (according to Blizzard). You really need to understand the cast time on aimed shot, how that interferes with autoshot DPS if a weapon is faster on autoshot (after haste effects) than the aimed shot speed, and the cooldown on multishot. And normalization did not help on this because normalization was intended for autoshot or individual specials, not collections of specials run on specific rotations with specific buffs and talents to support them.
It's a great bow but how great remains to be seen. If it had been about 3.2 or 3.3 it probably would have been beyond reproach as best bow in the game but at 2.9 I suspect it will come in lower than it should.
Slow bows arent always the highest dps ones. IT depends on your spec. For 0/21/30 yes slower is better for the huge crits. However, for a marks spec hunter with 5 points in improved aspect of hawk, a fast bow is better. With this spec your crit will never be as high as with a survival spec, but the proc from aspect of hawk will make up for this. Faster bow = more procs. So rather then relying on big crits for dmg, you would just hit ton more times

check the speed and then say it owns gg
Dropped on Ner'zhul last night.
I hear everyone talking about how crazy this thing looks, but meh...
I was impressed with the graphics on nerubian slavemaker however.
It rox, quit whining
Hey if none of you hunters want it just give it to me(rogue). ^^
Supposedly this is an item from the 4 Horsemen in Nax.
Finally, a cool looking bow. Huhuran's Stinger was giving me the creeps, now I have something else to look forward to.
Anyone looking this up for Classic should know that
is just so much better than this weapon for hunters its insane. Something to note, though, is that Slavemaker is actually better than Soulstring for both Hunters AND melee classes because of the stats. In fact, even
is better for melee classes than Soulstring, and that thing comes from early MC.
Which means, essentially, that no one should use it aside from hunters without
or warrior tanks without
. It occupies such an odd space in loot prioritization that guilds could really just use it to fill gaps in gear. A shame for such an awesome model.
If, for whatever reason, you do decide to use it as Hunter, note that you will be using the "clipped" damage rotation just like you did with
123 - 229伤害
耐久: 90 / 90
