This must be the horde version of Blade of the Archmage (
21 spell crit pts = 0.95% crit chance at lvl 70.
It would be nice to have something unique about this weapon to differentiate it from the other 2 epic caster 1handers in the game.
They all have pretty much the same idea except for the fact that one is actually a dagger for the priests/shamans.
Perhaps increase stats more, or add some spell hit, or maybe even a proc of some sort. Please give it something special!
This would be a nice replacement for Continuum Blade
(you can buy CB by hitting revered with Keepers of Time) as a Paladin Tank.
hum shamans can't use swords nub
Hey I am currently leveling a warlock and was looking for gear that i should aim towards ..... i was just wondering if this was any good for an affliction spec warlock ?
This weapon needs a redesign. It would be perfect for an elemental (or even Resto) Shaman, except for the fact that Shaman can't use swords. Even the name of it hearkens to a Shaman, not to mention the fact it is a reward from an Orcish faction - which Orcs have a racial bonus to axes. Why is this not a 1H axe?
Can't we have one axe with caster stats on it? Give an Orc Shaman a break!
That´s exactly what he said. It would be perfect for an elemental (caster) shaman, but they can´t use swords, so his suggestion was to turn it into an axe to make it usable by shamans. A dagger would be an ever better choice though, since then all casters could use it.
One of the best weapons a mage/lock could get Pre-Raiding. Preist's, Shammy's and Druid's ect should get the mace from lower city rep (Auchidoun Instance's). Fastest way i got the rep from Revered was doing Heroic Rampart's constantly.
As a pally tanking weapon, i wouldnt use this. Id probly go for somthing with a little more Stamina, ie Continuum Blade (
) Which is CoT rep.
Alliance Version: Blade of the Archmage (
As 2.3 gets released I do not consider this the best blade pre raiding anymore for a affliction lock.
Then you should get Gladiator's spellblade from the honor system. Nice and easy and 40 more spellpower.
Imo for prot paladin, go for Greatsword of Horrid Dreams from Murmur instead...
easier to get, and almost the same stats
Not a great weapon by any means. Remember kids, the color refers to the rarity... not the quality (in this case, it's a rare weapon due to the required reputation).
Greatsword of Horrid Dreams dosnt have enough stam to be a good paly tanking weapon.
Since Patch 2.4
is available for 41g 82s at a Revered status with the Shattered Sun Offense
It is nearly identical to Stormcaller and Blade of the Archmage plus cheaper and easier to obtain. You lose about 29 Spell Damage though
what does this look like?
Very nice spell damage 1hander, not as nice as many other epic ones but that is to be expected from a rep reward.
Wow, this would rock on my Prot spec Pally
Got this tonight... but it's really hard to take a decent pic... since the white flame glow is REALLY intense and bright. It's like a fat, white lightsaber. Far easier to make it out ingame.
What the best way to get exalted with Thrallmar? The pvp quest only give me 10 rep at honored and I'm not crazy about instances... please help.
Looks like Brutality Blade with a very nice pure white "flame" effect. Makes the sword look longer as it extends a bit over the point of the blade...
can anyone link a nice off hand beside AV items to go along with this?
Looks like a white brutality blade with an icey enchant.
For 150+ spell damage in the main hand it could look like a tootsie pop with a barbie doll head on top of it!
Very, very nice sword from what I can see. Can't wait to get Revered myself.
to get this swordz,ou should first do Rampants and BF instances untill honored...then do all quests in Hellfire. That will not be enough,but better than do quests first
Someone cood pleas explayne how is possible to get exalted ?
2. Mark of honor (pvp) ?
Thanks in advance
Farm Shattered halls!
whats the offhand to complement this for a mage?
Sooo, to the posts above, this is for being exalted. The way i grinded repu was, instances until honored, then i did all the quests. During revered i was just running shattered halls and heroic ramparts and furnace. As long as u get 2k repu from a run its not really that hard to get it. As a offhand i have chosen the one from nethermancer Sepethrea. Im mage and this item is so cool :), atm +860 spl dmg +27% crit
Actually, with the stuffs I'm working on, including this blade, a expensive enchant and a nice BoE Tailor Belt (don't have tailoring myself) I'm effectivily gonna reach 1004 Shadow Damage :)
i have spellstrike set, icon of the silver crescent, girdle of ruination, my rings enchanted w/ +12 spell damage, gladiators silk amice, and i have 977 spell damage. with this and +15 spell damage to bracers ill have over. it's not hard at all
Seems like the best main-hand for a mage as of now, but from I can see, this item looks like a horde exclusive. Is it? If it is, whats the Alliance's answer to this sword. If it isn't, would I have a hard time getting this sword since it would be in horde territory and i find myself getting ganked a frustrating amount?
The answer to your question is:
Blade of the Archmage
Honor Hold - Exalted
It has the exact same bonuses and can be bought at Honor Hold when exalted with them, instead of Thrallmar...
You can get this sword easily.
It's much better if you are an tailor
and a mage :)
So do Shattered halls runs..
You will gain a lot of reputation..
And the first boss .. The warlock..
Drops an epic tailoring pattern ,
so that's one good item where you're looking
for , as second , murmor drops a awesome
held in off hand , you can combine that
with the stormcaller.. I have the
stormcaller , but not yet the Held in off hand
+ pattern , i did more then 30 runs..
this is gets buffed in 2.1
will gain +1 more intelect and 9 spell damage, not much but still buffed
Overview of the best/most efficient way to get to Exhalted
Note: Try and hold off on completing any quests which give Thrallmar rep, until after you hit Honored (or 5999/6000 friendly).
Neutral - Honored:
1) Run Ramparts and Blood Furnace. You can gain rep up to 5999/6000 Friendly here.(You may need a PvP quest turn-in, or a Thrallmar quest to push you over into Honored, not sure).
2) Do the PvP quest (Hellfire towers) once daily for 150 rep, and 3 marks:P
3) The Blood orcs (62-63) on the path leading up to the bottom of Hellfire Citadel also give 5 rep each. I'm not certain if they give rep up to Friendly or just Neutral though.
Honored - Revered:
1) Do all Thrallmar rep quests.
2) Do the PvP quest daily.
3) Shattered Halls runs (min lvl is 68). This will most likely be your main rep source here.
Revered - Exhalted:
1) Heroic Ramparts/Blood Furnace.
2) Shattered Halls runs (Normal or Heroic).
3) Do the PvP quest daily.
it has one of the best graphics imo
I think i might go blind......
s1 (and upcomin s2) for honor pwns the crap out of this thing if u are a pala tank.
More stamina,int and spell dmg only thing less is the spell crit but then u got 6 more stam so that give u some crit.
What pally would use this?
30 - 118伤害
