Finaly a pure upgrade to the Icon of the Silver Crescent, This may well be the best caster trinket in the game out side of Hyjal/BT.
Only things that come close is the Darkmoon Card Crusade and maybe the Eye of Magtherdon, though personaly i think this is probably better than the Eye of Magtherdon at least.
Dropped tonight for Security on PTR from Hex Lord Malacrass. 5th boss in Zul'aman & final boss before you get to face Zul'jin himself.
This is equal to about 88 damage assuming you used it every 2 minutes.
This is indeed a crazy good trinket, assuming this is not changed that would make this better then any trinket outside of the Skull of Gul'dan (off Illidan), even surpassing the flat +80 damage of the Darkmoon Card: Crusade. That hardly seems like proper itemization for a trinket that drops in pre-tier 5 content...
Most of the other caster gear is rather disappointing in this instance (speaking as a warlock). This is the only item I am truly interested in.
Aside from this there is the necklace of Zul'jin and the hood also off Malacrass, everything else seems to have spirit or mp5 on it and the little bit of spell haste available at this level isn't enough to make it excell like the T6 gear does.
This trinket seems crazy good, but seeing as there are no decent caster trinkets in SSC/TK it seems well itemized.
definitely one of the best trinkets for most dps casters right now
2nd best Shadow Priest trinket
First being the Skull of Gul'dan!
Right now (18/11/07) trinket does not set off a cooldown on other similar trinkets such as the Icon of the Silver Crescent.
This trinket can be used simultaneously with your other trinket! (patch 2.3)
Tested this with Icon of the Silver Crescent and Xi'ri's Gift...
There was a thread on the WoW General Forums regarding this item and one person's desire to get it.
Taken from a post by Ajaks of <Pajamas> from Akama
Edit: Dardanos was the one who recorded and posted this amazing event and all props go to him I just had to share it with more than just Demon Soul.
Edit: For those who would like to have teh lulz without reading just click the two vent recordings. (Imagine Arnold Schwarzenegger drunk, and singing pop music about wanting a shrunken head trinket.)
It started with...
Q u o t e:
you've probably guessed it. im a horde warlock, and im looking to go to Zul'Aman with a raid group. My guild is too small to go with. I will respec affliction and dps if i get the chance to go with anyone. And if it matters im only going for one drop, Hex shrunken head. The rest i won't roll on, i don't care about the other drops. If i get the head i won't leave the raid either because i got what i wanted, i'll finish it out. Please send me a message in game if we could arrange something. Thank you
ok i have resorted to paying for this shrunken head... give me a time and a price. send me a piece of mail in game, a message... whatever. im a pvp warlock and i have no way of getting this trinket myself, please help.
And now has progressed to...
Edit: Switched the Vent recordings around to the proper order.
Update: If you would like to hear a specific song please post in the song request thread!
Update: Digg it here!
QQ more about drop-rates.
Loot is RANDOM
For every guild/pug/whatever that won't ever see this drop, there is another guild that is disenchanting this or giving it to off-spec classes.
This is the best trinket you can get as a shadowpriest, unless you kill Mu'ru at sunwell. it has a huge spell damage available, and a nice activate CD.
It's roughtly 20DPS more than crescent, and is 41 heroic badges cheaper. But you need to clean Zul'Aman, and have it drop of course ;)
Still, very good trinket, raiding shadowpriests should get this one !!
Third highest DPS trinket for the average caster, right after Shifting Naaru Silver and The Skull of Gul'dan
Depends on which party you ask, but as far as raw DPS and not depending on procs or anything, this is the BEST trinket for spreists.
Spell haste might be reeeeeally nice, because I'm sure any spriest would LOVE .5 second Mind Flays (if that's true), but for raw damage and not having to worry about going oom too fast (for those of us with small mana pools and/or not ridiculously massive +dmg) this is going to be your best bet, along with Icon.
By far the best caster trink in the game for most classes, paired up with
Icon of the Silver Crescent
I sustain at least 1500+ dmg raid buffed for 40 seconds, not to mention my boomkin
set proccing. I would kill to have this trink, only saw it drop once, and a damn Shadow Priest got it...
