This is simply the best Shadow Priest off-hand. For Warlocks, there are two off-hands that are better in Hyjal/Black Temple.
As an affliction lock, I have it, and I can say it to you, there is no better offhand in the game for me, including _all_ the known drops from 25men instances.
5 complete runs of heroic mechanar will get you this off-hand. Since the mini-boses who hold the key fragments also drop badges in addition to the 3 main bosses you can get a plethora (insert 3 Amigos references here) of badges. I manage to get through in an avg 90 min (with PUGs even).
That's an avg 450 min (7.5 hr) in Heroic Mech to get this item (assuming a complete run each time).
7.5 hours on avg to get one of the best +shadow dmg off-hands in the game currently.
One of the best parts is that there's no praying or sacrificing talbuks in hopes it drops from a small % off some single boss. Every boss you kill in a heroic instance gets you 4% closer to your goal. No variation, no guesswork, no prayers. Get the marks, get your item - simple and direct.
How is this one (51 shadow dmg and 16sta) compared to Khadgar's Knapsack (49 all dmg) ?
In my opinion it's worse, since Immolate is some of your damage. Anyone that can come with some theorycrafting on that? Think I am picking Khadgar's for now.
Obiviously the offhand of choice for shadow dmg dealing if you aren't lucky enough to get a 2H staff like Infinite Mysteries etc. No hit rating, I hated to drop my lamp for that reason, but otherwise nice dps upgrade.
Can you have 2 of Orb of the Soul-Eater on at the same time?
Its beter for a destruction warlock rather than affliction one.. but still good for both
now that kara drops badges, assuming your guild does a full clear this will only take 1 kara run & a heroic daily quest.
What about warlocks? (Specifically Affliction, geared mainly in kara gear with some T4)
Now I already bought Fetish of the Primal Gods (
) with my badges... and wondering if it was a bad choice. My Guildmaster thinks I should be stacking spellhaste, but I'm not too sure about it. I don't think I have good enough gear to support the replacement of haste...
I do however have (
) off Netherspite... Wondering if I should be going back to this, or switching both in for the Orb...
Spell hit isn't a huge deal to me right now (I'm sitting nicely at 152), crit needs some work (it's 12.33%) But I won't need crit until much later in raiding when I switch to destruction.
Should I just put all stats aside and go for the Orb? Or stick with the Fetish offhand? Or go back to the Jewel? Ty for any help!
So as an affliction lock there's nothing better with the 2.4 patch and in BT/Hyjal?
This looks like spirit of aquamentas with black aura and its real name was something about necro or dark :P
Nice offhand, really good for shadow priests and warlocks, for both PvE and PvP.
