This drops from Anetheron in Mount Hyjal.
A cunning and horrifically powerful Dreadlord, Anetheron was second in the ranks of the Nathrezim only to Tichondrius himself (he later took the place of Tichondrius for a brief period).
He was one of the Dreadlords assigned to watch over the Lich King, and was one of the first Dreadlords to begin to suspect Arthas of being a threat to the Burning Legion.
Because Anetheron mentioned only Archimonde in the council with Tichondrius and Mephistroth, is has been inferred that he was loyal to the Defiler only, and held little loyalty to Kil'jaeden.
Matching offhand from Black Temple:
Blade of Savagery
Oh Noes! Not another 'this is clearly a hunter's wep' thread.
This is a great MH for any combat sword specced rogue, the SS crits would be insane. Anyways, a hunter could benefit from the stats but i doubt that any guild would let a hunter receive this instead of a rogue / dps warrior, DKP or not.
Still dying to find out why Blizzard refuses to create slower weapons for rogues who absolutely loved hemo and the subtletly tree.
For a 2.6 mainhand, for hemo to be equal in average damage to sinister strke would require almost 8000AP. While a 2.8 mainhand would only need roughly 3000AP+. The difference in the speed greatly affects hemo mechanics, so it's such a depressing fact that Blizzard yet again, fails on this aspect of itemization.
At least back then, the Rank 14 weapons were all sporting 2.9 speeds. But now that even Hyjal and BT loot haven't shown us any viable weapons that are slower, guess hemo rogues could only hope for slower season 3 arena weapons.
How about this 3.00 one for you Hemo guys...
Though I wouldn't take it over a rogue or warrior, 2x Blade of Infamy with +15 Agi enchant (+20 in 2.2) is the best option for a survival hunter.
After 2.2, this sword will be very similar to Talon of Azshara from Morogrim Tidewalker, due to the consistent, large buffs being given to Talon. In my view, this is quite unfortunate; this was one of the really nice things for rogues in Hyjal, and Hyjal gear really should be better than stuff off one of the simpler bosses in ssc.
Talon of Azshara
the same damage range after the 2.2 buff, therefore the sinister strike (and sword proc) damage will be the same.
Infamy has 3.7 dps, 29 AP and 0.32% crit more and 1.27% hit less than Talon, so statwise, except for the higher dps, they are very close to each other aswell.
I can't say I mind the upgrade of Talon, but it is apparent that Infamy is gonna need a boost aswell. Maybe when S3 arrives.
Damage range has nothing to do with sinister strike damage. Only top damage is taken into account.
Duel wielding this is the best weapon in the game pre and possibly post sunwell for a survival hunter. This is assuming you do not need stamina or hit. If you do need these stats check out an Umbral Shiv (12+10+10 agility, 30 stamina, and 13 hit). The only thing is we will have to wait for every rogue and warrior that wants one to get it before us. I will have mine some day though :-D
Edit: This will not give you the highest amount of agility, that comes from the umbral shiv with 2x 10 agi gems. But sacrificing 112 Ap for 8 agility and 26 hit isn't worth it.
Non-unique and 1-handed(you can dual wield-this).
currently 2xoff these + 2x20agilaty enchant for 106agilaty for max agilaty ingame
saying this for the survival hunters out there !
i have a question...for PvE purpose is better this one or the s3 MH?
In terms of upgrading, I'll be getting this to replace my Talon of Azshara. As long as you can afford to lose the hit it is a very definete upgrade. Same Sinister Strike and the same white hits as Talon but with the 2.6 speed you hit just that bit more often, and you'll also get extra poison application.
If you've got over 300 hit, might want to consider this.
Rogues: This sword is better than Talon of Azshara, and will last until S3/S4 or Warglaive. Vanir's right fist hits harder and is a viable option up until Blade of Infamy which is an upgrade due to the sword spec superiority.
This weapon is slightly better than Talon of Azshara unless your hit rating is really crappy (which it shouldn't be if this is an option for you), because the extra crit and massive AP this gives, also, item points are eaten up by the armor on the Talon.
Spectacular DPS: sword 339 top end, 0.7% crit (from the agi), and a whopping total of 84 AP! This is a really good combat MH (hemo too, I suppose :P).

Drops from Anatheron in Hyjal Summit.
hunter should never have this over a rogue, just like a rogue would never have a good bow over a hunter, despite favorable stats
Anetheron 73 Boss Hyjal Summit Low
Why do people always go to the newest items page and post "OMG ITEM SHOULD NEVER GET IT. No guild in their right mind is going to go to thottbot to decide which classes can get which items. Arguing on the internet, special olympics, etc.
yeah this is a rogue weapon
both agree and disagree.
as a hunter, I see how melee classes need this much more than hunters, but getting it when those people dont need it anymore wouldnt hurt at all.
at least thats how stuff works in my guild, (and hopefully most other guilds).
IF you are in a guild that let hunters need / bid on melee weapons when melee classes have worse, than I would suggest straighting stuff up. Rogues in my guild have epic ranged weapons becouse all hunters that was there at the moment had bether, and the other way around.
PvE is teamplay, deal with it and stop being greedy and cocky.
classes that are C A P A B L E of using this weapon.
Rogue - Best choice simply because melee is how they do 99% of their damage and game mechanics work in their favor in everyway.
Fury Warrior - Ok, i wouldnt have a problem at all with a warrior going for this, they have skills and talents that obviously work well with 1h slow weapons (should respec though since fury warriors got nerfed to hell imo)
Paladin - Get the &*!@ out of town, 1h on a paladin should be a tanking weapon or nothing, go with a 2 hander if you really must have a weapon that does damage plz k thnx bye
Hunters - Uh if every melee class has 2 of them already (didn't see anything that said unique) merely for @#$%s and giggles then you may have one, im serious, just stfu and quit crying
Warlocks - able to use but uh obviously not inteded for them in any way
Mages - same as warlocks
Oh and btw for all you people out there who are not aware. Shamans cannot use swords. Yes it's true. L2P please. Anyone who disagrees feel free to make an fool of yourself by making a reply to my post.
I disagree, if I was in a guild and they allowed someone to Vendor this out of spite to a certain class then I'd gquit asap.
That is the most childish statment I have heard and obviously you have little friends on WoW.
Most guilds use DKP and if you are raiding Hyjal then obviously the guild is at a stage where people know who needs what.
Sure rogues, warriors etc.. would get priority if they want it. But if they dont wtf? give it to them anyway to vendor? You sir, are an idiot.
Clearly a Combat Rouge sword.. the 28 agli is sweet aswell as the highest dmg one handed sword No Questioning it
I'm a hunter and I just have to say this...
*drool* (Survival hunter)
Dual Wielding this with 2x20 Agi is probably the highest Agi weapons a hunter would be able to get right now.
Wars and Rogues still have priority though I'd think haha.
Jesus people...If a guild gets as far to even GET this #$%^ing sword, do you think there is going to be any argument who gets it? The hunters should know their roll in a guild like that. Hunters only want this weapon for STATS. Rogues and Fury Warriors want it for stats AND the pure damage it gives. Who's going to utilize it to it's fullest extent? The people who will spend 99.9% of their time actually swinging the frigging thing, or the people letting it hang on their side as they strut around IF thinking "God DAMN I'm sexy!" and answering questions like "Has it ever been used?" "Of course not little boy! I like to keep my blades in perfect condition, I never even use them!" Hunters, if the rogues or warriors dont want this, go crazy and wet your pants. Until then, dont !@#$% about not getting this. Just get Sonic Spear or Legacy. Those are perfect hunter weapons.
-Shadowcatch, Kilrogg. 63 Hunter
One word to all you idiotic hunters out there who think this is a weapon for them......
Vendoring anything of end game nature is childish, hunters should be able to call on certain weapons always after the melee classes have had their fill. Any feeb who thinks ANY class is subpar to another should play more arena, i'd love to wipe the floor clean with your nub ass anyday.
This is for that lovely post left by Mankind at the top, proving yet again that though everyone has a voice, not all need to be heard.
this is swords Rogue weapon for main hand! no other way to be
hmmmm beautiful SV hunter wep with a +20 agi IF no warriors or rogues wanted. which is unlikely. but possible. anyway, the point is that we hunters have so many options, like netherbane( if u rlly like 1 handers) or halberd of desolation, and a bunch of other things, that if a rogue or warrior wanted this, of course we wouldnt roll on it. Cause they can use it the most. we can get one of those other weapons.
to all those people calling us #$%^&*!s...obviously u r in a pretty bad guild cause hunters who know how to play(and are thus doing high lvl raids) wont snipe these weapons from u if it rlly is an upgrade for u. so stop posting and go play some WoW! and once u actually get one sniped from u,then post! of course, now theres gonna be hunter haters who r gonna say that they have had it sniped, which mostly arent gonna be tru, but u just gotta make a post contradicting what I say right? cause im a hunter?
btw, i got nothing against rogues and warriors. theyre awesome. i just think that dumb rogues and warriors are just that, dumb.
flame away :)
Give to a hunter ? HAHA you stupid hunters are hilarious. I would disenchant this before I even consider giving it to a hunter. Its either rogue or warrior, the rest can shove it.
yeah i'm hahnxl sorry about that post before i thought it was a dagger, they need to make it longer. i'll have another go :)
1. Sword rogues, fury wars, survival hunters
2. OH for backstab rogues and MM+BM hunters
3. Mages and Warlocks
4. the rest
Hopefully that's a bit better :)
its a nice weapon of course everyone is going to want it, hell if you didnt want cool weapons then you probably dont like video games... and yah.
Without a doubt...rogue weapon mainly due to the speed, and top end damage.
only other sword with this sort of top end damage is
Talon of Azshara
...so having this in the hands of a hunter is fine assuming all of the rogues and furry warrs in the raid are already wielding this (very unlikely)...
wouldn't QQ if i somehow lost this to a furry warr, but still..the top end would benefit a rogue much more.
...and for hunters... don't take this over a rogue as another addition to your collection of stat sticks..its just a plain waste of raw dps. get a 2hander so when you wing clip for kiting purposes, u can crit me for 2k raptor strike as well when you run through me to tag that WC...kill 2 birds one stone imho. and i'll put in my 2 more cents by QQing about hunter melee dps in the first place:hunters melee weapons should have the same concept as a druid or mage 2hander(very low weapon damage, but supportive class stats). If a mage runs oom, they can't just pull out their staff and whack you in tha face for 2k, a hunter runs oom, he can stand his ground and auto shoot you in tha face critting upwards of 1500. kthxbai
If only shamans could wield swords :\
um rogues only first
wars want str>agi ANY day of the week
hunters could use this, but hunters have better 2handed options well before this drops so imho most people at this point in the game realize that a rogue uses this, then it could mayby go to a desperate warrior but str is better.
this is a viable hunter option but only for very few. if ur guild is far into BT and the rogues and fury warrs(my guild doesnt have one) have theirs, then a hunter could get 2. i saw a hunter wit 2 of em on my friends server, im guessing all the rogues/warrs in his guild alrdy had em
I have two of these. I am a hunter and a member of a raiding guild. As most raiding guilds we have loot rules and we use dkp for bidding on items. As a raiding hunter it’s nice to have two one-hander’s as You can use mana oil x 2 - which you can't if you are using a two-hander. Mana regeneration is very important on boss fights for sustained DPS.
IMO, duelin' this weapon would be the "one and only" BEST option for a hunter. I have a hunter myself and i would love to duelwield these. OF COURSE i would let the rogues (and maybe warriors) have it first, they'r priority for this sword.
I compared this weapon with the 2nd best for hunters, "Halberd of Desolation" (STATS WISE), and WITH top AGI enchants or +70AP enchant "Savagery" applied to them.
Blade of Infamy x 2(Duelwielding)
+112 Attack Power (RAP)
+112 Attack Power
Halberd of Desolation
+100 Attack Power (RAP)
+30 Hit Rating
+70 Attack Power (RAP)
+30 Hit Rating
Now, me being a BM Hunter with more DPS then even most of the different DPS classes on my guild, I would (once again IMO) go with the offensive Blades of Infamy. BUT any other hunter out there considering of NEEDING these. Let the Rogues get them first.
Real hunters would need these for STATS (which affect our ranged attacks too, for you ignorant F#%Ks), no reason what so ever for LOOKS or Melee Damage
i think that it not unreasonable for hunters to have a chance at this now because there r guilds which have been in BT/hyjal for a long time now and r totally decked out in all the sweet gear they could hope for. of course, i will probably never see this drop as we are still in TK but isnt it possible that there r hunters out there who have been in guilds doing BT/hyjal for long enough that their rogues/warrs would have it?
not to mention high dps weapons arent an issue anymore because of the patch making it easy enough for any player(whether they be &*!@ty or good) to get high end weapons
