Man, some of the damage ranges on these things are wide-open. Is there any kind of reason or rhyme behind it? Granted, casters aren't big on melee, but it still strikes me that they'd either up the low end, bring the top end down, or better yet, even it out somewhere in the middle.
With the right Gems, you can boost this Weapon up to +36 Spell Crit Rating, combined with the +30 Intellect Enchantment makes this by far, the best weapon in the game currently for Spell Criticals.
2 of these in this dagger = 36 spell crit rating
Making this the best PVE caster dps dagger in the game, hands down.
The stats are completely meaningless, it doesn't matter. For pvp, you would use something that has more longevity, but almost 2% crit on a weapon is redonkulous for constant dps.
Finally buffed on the PTR:
194 Spell dmg
19 Spell crit rating
9 Spell hit rating
2x Yellow Gem and socket bonus of 3 itel
Better than the Nathrezim Mindblade and Bloodsaw Magus Blade because of the sockets. Better than the Fang of the Leviathan, even, unless you really don't need spell hit.
There is one class that suffer from this though, and that is paladins. Especially protection or holy spec trying to quest some solo.
I would like both spell damage and higher DPS than 41, but that is not possible at the moment :(
Amazing weapon, the second best until Tier6 instances. Blows away the dagger from Prince, the sword from Gruul and the one from Leotheras the Blind. Great distribution of damage stats.
With 2 Runed Living Rubies, we're looking at:
+212 Spell Damage
+9 SpellHit rating - worth 9 spell damage points.
+1 % crit (including Intellect) - worth 15 damage points for a Deep Fire mage.
So all in all, 236 damage points, more if you use a PvP 12 spell damage gem.
By comparison, Nathrezim and Gruul sword are worth 221 damage points.
Leo's sword is worth 224 points.
The Season2 Arena weapon, however, is worth 243 damage points, making it ~7 damage points better plus 270 HP. (less if you use PvP gem)
However, the first real upgrade comes with the dagger from the first boss in BT.
I would like a vote here.
Wich Main hand is the best?
1. Fang of the Leviathan?
2. Talon of the Tempest?
And a motivation would be nice allso.
Looks like at 2.4 this item will be BoE.
"Loot from the Burning Crusade world bosses (Doom Lord Kazzak and Doomwalker) will now be Bind on Equip."
This is superior to
for an elemental shaman (and probably other classes) when it is correctly socketed. This is totally from a PvE standpoint and stamina is not taken into account.
The stats which count on Nathrezim Mindblade are:
23 spell crit rating
203 spell damage
Talon of the Tempest's stats are:
19 spell crit rating
194 spell damage
Now, assuming you socket two
Potent Noble Topaz
into this (also granting the socket bonus) the stats become:
13 intellect (+3 from socket bonus)
9 spell hit rating (unchanged)
27 spell crit rating (+8 from gems)
204 spell damage (+10 from gems)
This in comparison to Nathrezim Mindblade:
+9 spell hit rating (for the hit handicapped)
+4 spell crit rating
+1 spell damage
you could gem differently for a boosted bonus of spell damage (using two
Runed Living Rubies
) or for spell critical rating (using two
Sold this on Argent Dawn(Us) for an amazing 2k gold.The dude later whispered me that he wants his money back cause he tought it was 200 not 2k :\
Blatently sticking +40SD enchant on that sucker.
yeah awesome caster sword..
Death and Decay
Since it's BoE you can actually buy it on the AH? An item from a raid boss? But it must cost insane amounts of gold?
this is nice
where is this from?
You're better off going after Prince and getting the Nathrezim Mindblade.
Here is a Pic!
Doomwalker dropped it yesterday for me ;).
Does D&T have any pics of it? wonder if its gonna be butt ugly like the other caster daggers..
Pretty awesome caster dagger, and even more so with 2 yellow sockets and a bonus of even more intellect, or you could load it with a couple 12 stam gems for pvp. Great for those people who want every little bit of stat action.
With +40 spell and 2 Ruined living ruby, This thing can beat Fang of the Leviathan in bonus damage. +252 In Spell damage is crazy.
This drops from doomwalker just outside the instance entrance in the black temple... 2k AoE, 20k crushing damage yummeh
This dropped off of the Doomwalker infront of Black Temple today after we killed it.
Bad Anatomy FTW - Server Nazjatar
Drops of Doomwalker in Shadowmoon Valley.
2x Potent Noble Topaz + 40 Spelldmg!
Best PvE 1h Ingame afaik.

With talents shamans can also add another +11 to crit with Call of Thunder and Tidal Mastery. Since the extra casts from Lightning Overload can also crit, elemental shamans can potentially put out some serious DPS. Lightning Overload sucks 95% of the time but that last 5% kicks ass.
Tidal Mastery +5% Damage for CRIT
Tidal Mastery + Crit 155%dmg
Elemental Fury + Crit 200%dmg
Elementel Fury + Tidal Mastery + crit 205%dmg
If a guild has an elem shaman or a balance druid that raid and play DPS most of the time, then thy should have as much right to something like this as a mage/lock/shadow priest. If it's about progression, then you want all your caster DPS to do as well as possible, no matter what the class is.
lets say that a shaman would be in dire need of a new wep, but doesnt have enough arena points and doesnt get to play during primetime raiding hours, how feasible would it be to get a group together to take down doomwalker a few times until this drops? like is doomwalker 5-mannable, 10-mannable, or must it be a 20 man? pvp doesnt offer any really good rewards anymore, and nobody does 5 mans during lunchbreak hours so tell me, is this dagger a better bet to try for?
Actually... Doomwalker and Kazzak loot is soon going to be BoE In the upcoming patch... So everyone and their gold pharming mothers has a chance at this sweet piece'o purple.
alright what i meant about the alliance shamman thing was that the only one that I have seen use chain did 3.6k might be better idk but CoD cant crit it does get extra dmg tho(how did this get started again?).
