It's so beautiful...
omg, wat a machine of a weapon, i would prefer 2 1H weaps but this would be fine
114.7 dps OMG!!!!!!!
I believe you have to get a certain amount of Arena points for this baby. But I'm not sure, just an educated guess.
A Hunter weapon if I ever saw one :)
I heard that a critical strike rating of 14 is basically 2% chance to crit. Sooo if i'm wrong please correct me but that'd be about 4 and a half chance to crit! (then again not for sure so correct me if needed). Ugh, bloodfury raptor strike with that would be CRAZY
On a side note the maximum amount of arena points you can have is 5,000. This axe costs 3,750. Also, a critical strike rating of 14 is 1% chance to crit.
At level 70, when you can get this weapon, I believe the rating values of this weapon translates into:
hit rating of 17 = 1.1 % hit chance
critical strike rating of 32 = 1.45% crit chance
resilience rating of 25 = 0.63% less chance of being struck by any type of critical strike, and 1.27% less damage taken from critical strikes
WoW that's a sick axe :D
Nice to see that Blizz made some PvP 2 handers useful for hunters this time around.
Is it just me or is
much better due to the strength (32 str = 254 AP @ 70?) compared to the 64 AP equip bonus on this axe?
This is a great PvP Hunter Weapon as well.
Crit % and AP is great. +480health is awsome and the slow attack speed does'nt matter much, that will make bigger Raptor Strike Crit.
Now we need to get 3700 for the bow and 3700 for that 2H. Not likely going to happen tho.
weapon is harder to attain if your arena team isn't that good. getting this weapon in a fast pace requires good equipped gear. if your blue and greens, this weapon could take close to 3 weeks to getting. 1400-1500 rating in one bracket of pvp translates into 350 arena points every tuesday night. if you have 3 arena teams, 2v2, 3v3, and 5v5, and you times 3 x 350 arena points, that gives you close to 1600 arena points a week. , this should take only 3 weeks to get even if your arena rating is low as shit, for other karazkan geared folks it will take them 2 weeks. but it's still the same. but if you want this piece in the least little of time, you have to participate in all 3 arenas and play more than 30% of the time to get the points calculated. one time my arena rating in the 5v5 bracket was 2353 and my playing time was 28%. it was a pain...... so make sure you play often. one more thing, do not think arena will be as brain damaging as pvping in AV, AB, WSG, or EOTS. it's actually really easy. all you have to do is play 10 games per arena bracket and never play again. so maybe, it'll take u 1.5 hours a week to play 10 games per bracket and then you are all set.... all set to receive arena points.
Arena Points are easier to get than Honor Points if you were to invest 1 hours of your time for both.
in pvp, you can get 750 honor points a hour. in arena, you can get 950 arena points a hour BUT the arena points stay the same until it resets on tuesday. and the cost for gladiator gear and weapons is riduclously cheaper than the grand marshall gear and weapons.
so if your a unwanted character who is genetically chosen to be looked down upon and rejected by higher guilds like me, ask also someone who is in the same shoes as you and get it. gladiator set is faster to get than the tier 2,3,4,5,6 combined and it's the most specialized in pvp. the attack sets of tier 4,5,6 are only dps sets for "raiding," not pvp...
if you look months along the line, the people you know who were always ahead of you will be behind you.
This axe actually gives only 64 attack power. Would any moderators be able to correct this?
Anybody know, have all improves of the axe work for hunter range attaks? If so, i think it is the best hunter PvP melee weapon.
This Axe kinda looks like an Oblivion Portal.
Can't wait till I can buy it with honor, it will be a great replacement for my current Felsteel Reaper.
I feel very stupid asking this, but I rly failed to find it ingame... is it being sold for honor ANYWHERE yet?
thisis a very nice axe!!!!and its easy to get, just get 27000honor points and 40 Alterrac valley marks :D
why do I never see paladins with this? They've always got the greatsword, even tho 64 ap is better than 32 strength. Is there any other reason?
to cool wep. it looks like devistatio
Very nice weapon, I'm shooting for it on my hunter. Wish it had agility rather than crit. Available for 27,000 Honor and 40 AV Marks. Very well worth the grind IMO. Will do very nicely until
This thing is simply beautiful. Polearm is decent, but really fast.
This thing will hurt really bad...
Nice, but not out of this world.
Moon cleaver is almost as good as this (only thing that makes this better is the stamina), and is only the second stage weapon for master axe smiths.
Good weapon, but in my opinion it should be a little better for being an epic arena reward.
sweet mother of jesus.......LOOK AT THAT STAM BUFF!
and the speed and damage!...
get me a towel, im drooling a small ocean here
Seeing as there's a general lack of hunter-oriented melee weapons by design, this is undoubtedly the best melee weapon a hunter can get in the game currently.
So why would you be surprised if a hunter got it?
I know through raiding and crafting the chances of me finding similar quality items for other slots are high. This slot, not so much. Especially since we are absolute last priority as you know for getting melee weapons, that makes this even more of an instant significant upgrade to both ranged dps for raiding AND survivability in PvP.
This will be my first purchase as a hunter, or the upgraded version when S3 hits.
2-3k raptor strikes and 55 stamina? Yeah. Useless to a hunter in pvp, since we never get melee'd by every class there is. Even casters rush to melee because it's our weakness.
2% crit and almost 90 AP? Yeah, find a better weapon or weapons you can put in your hands for raiding, you won't (as of writing this)
Roll a hunter, start stacking stats for ranged DPS, and this weapon will immediately ping your radar just on that alone. Then get into PvP, spec savage strikes, and then come back and comment on this weapon's usefulness to a hunter.
You are only as strong in PvP as your last resort. I'd love to go up against another hunter in full S2 gladiator without this axe, so when I rush him melee just like everyone else, but with this weapon, he has no chance. That will be the next hunter in line to buy one.
omfg i must have it.. and i am a shamY!
let me know where it drops i need 1 :P
its a PvP weapon... Arena if i'm right
As a fellow clothie being on the other end of that is gonna hurt :( I hope casters get such good gear.
Finaly ,something that will give pvp warrior's their
true purpose- ONE SHOT EVERYBODY
Its axes like this that make pple play wow all day just 2 get it & i think this axe will go quite nice with a Ms spec dpsin warr
this would be really good for hunters....altho i wouldnt get it unitl,i yhad my gladiators xbow and my armor...but i would get this (im a hunterlvl 70)...as my last thing to get
This is a vendor item. If a hunter has enough points, he can get it if he wants.
God why do why always fight over "warrior weapon" or "hunter weapon" even on items you don't even roll on! if he gets it he gets it and u can still get urs for the same amount of work plase some of you grow up
Ok this axe is pretty sick...damage wise and stat wise...If you add the whole arena set with this it gives you a total of 7% crit. But then again this does take along time to get so go for the armor unless your getting T4. If you get three general pieces with this it will boost you all the way up to 9.7% crit and even higher with gems and armor patches.
should i get this thing first before i get any of the armor, i already have a 29 crit chance in battle stance, and a warriors dps depends on their wep, i have 2300 arena points right now, dunno if i should save up or buy something, get back to me on this one
Hunters go into melee combat way to much than we should and this axe might help us live with mad raptor strikes, your basicly saying if you were a warrior, you would use ranged on a hunter casue you dont think hunters should be "meleeing" U ARE DUMB
hunters don't melee? kk i'll just wait for:
warriors to wait at range and not charge/spam hamstring
mages to oom and not blink, frostlock, frost anything
warlocks to not run after me with curse of exhaustion
rogues to not use any poison or anything for that matter
beastmastery hunters to not slow me and run in/out with shots
shammans to not frostshock spam and totem drop
pallys to not run after me and sit at range
priests to not run after me and bend over
druids to not go bear and charge in, and just afk out
YES then, maybe i will stack a lot of RAP and crit, and then maybe i wont need a melee weapon.
UNTIL THEN... i might need to use the attack blizzard gave me called Raptor Strike (2.3k on 45% crit chance)
y r ppl arguing over what class should use this IT IS A VENDORED ITEM! it doesnt drop, so who cares who gets it!
lol i deffinately agree wtih the guy two comments above me.. just stfu.. who cares who uses it.. its not a dropped.. you cant get beat for it.. if a person works hard enough they should get it
This weapon is exceptional for Hunters.
All stats are in our interest for PvP.
Anyone who said Hunters don't deserve melee weapons like this makes absolutely no sense; we hold them for stats.. and raptor strike, wing clip, and mongoose bite can be vital during close encounters, and they can be nasty hits too.
That is all.
For those who have not yet heard: This item as well as all the Season 1 arena gear will be available to buy with honor, when Season 3 arrives. OWNAGE. This particular weapon will be 27,000 honor, and 40 AV marks of honor. Extremely easy to attain, one day of full AV on an AV weekend can get you this baby, cake.
Chest, Helm and Legs will be: 14500 honor, 30 MoH - AB, AV, WSG
Shoulders: 11250 honor, 20 MoH - AB
Gloves: 10500 honor, 20 MoH - AV
GG BLIZZ! ^.^
(the 2h mace and sword are also 27k honor)
I've also seen that you'll be able to obtain season 2 weapons for 27,000 honor and 40 AV marks. I wouldn't be too sure that this is the final cost of this item but it's a fair estimate. Kind of blows for all those season 2 arena players who bought season 1 gear after saving up their points just to have it so cheaply bought from honor. But at least this does start to put the majority of players on the same playing field which is a good thing in my opinion (though people toting around season 3 weapons and full armor sets will more then likely send you home crying to mommy even if you have all season 1 stuff). Blizzard is definitely ramping up battlegrounds with daily PvP quests and remaking AV, so I for one am very much looking forward to the 2.3 Patch and this Axe to replace my Felsteel reaper!
gladiators greatsword or gladiators decapitator ? for ms warr?
If i just want to get a pvp weapon, what's the best choice? im a marksmanship hunter. This, or duel wield the axes, or the 2h sword?
what about a shaman ?
Eh its your honor. Spend it how you will. Not like you are Ninja'ing it. ^^
These are for 27000 honor and 40 AV marks, for shaman duel wield, for hunter 2/H axe not that you will use it much, if you do then you will die in 5 secs against a good warrior.
Brye Lv70 Warrior :)
Hope this helps guys
Picking this up today. Put some +agil and it is a great weapon. Better then CFWA.
Hunters do not use melee weapons to stand there throw blows (if he does..well, he is most often an idiot). We use them to run through you with a Raptor (possible 2-3k crit with this bad boy) or WC if you happen to get close.
Kiting > Warriors. ;-)
No ^&*! its for both but any sensible warrior would get the mace or sword.
i just got this axe recently for my arms warrior and it is awesome and like every one said its vendored dont argue with each other over it
LISTEN UP MS PVP/RAIDING MS WARRIORS
this is probably the best 2h (from pvp vendor) considering the axe specializastion to get for raiding and PvP
if you are considering raiding, dont go with mace, stuns will have no effect on bosses or anything like dat
For an arms spec'd Warrior, who has 5 points in axe spec from talent tree, this wep will rock the str from mace and sword are negated by the Ap from axe. Since it is vendored from your bg time invested, spend the honor the way you like.
Why are ppl arguing over a damn item you BUY from the PvP vendor? I have a hunter and wouldn't mind having this axe, (actually I want the Vengeful Gladiator's Decapitator) and for you morons that think a hunter doesn't or shouldn't want/need this item...
THIS IS EXACTLY WHY A HUNTER WOULD WANT THIS AXE:
Equip: Improves hit rating by 20 (1.3%).
Equip: Improves critical strike rating by 35 (1.6%).
Equip: Improves your resilience rating by 28 (0.7%).
Equip: Increases attack power by 64.
Enough said, you idiots quit arguing about it. When you are doing PvP, you can't just stand back and shoot like someone mentioned before, you get rushed and you have no time to react except to swing your axe (and hope you can get far enough away to shoot them again), so quit making a big deal about a damn axe that isn't even a dropped item. If a hunter wants this axe and has the points, then so be it, who cares, it's not your character so just stfu about it.
Makes me sick to see ppl arguing about what class should use this or that, numerous postings about hunters not needing a melee weapon, ***NEWS FLASH**** Anyone that has ever used a hunter in PvP knows you can't just stand there and shoot, you get rushed EVERY SINGLE TIME, so yes, having a good axe comes in handy. PLAY THE DAMN GAME THE WAY YOU WANT AND LET OTHERS DO THE SAME... TO PUT IT SIMPLY:
341 - 513伤害
耐久: 120 / 120
