UPDATED:The only problem with Tel'thas is that it drops in 10 man ICC not 25 man. This is disappointing that after all of this toiling away in Northrend when we finally bring down Arthas there will be no loot for Elemental Shamans. The only usable item that the Lich King drops is Royal Scepter of Terenas II with 792 spell power, 31 MP5, and 63 crit rating this should be passed to healers everytime.
It would be awesome if we could use swords, I mean look at this one hand sword Bloodsurge, Kel'Thuzad's Blade of Agony. A perfect weapon for elemental shamans. Spell power, haste, and crit exactly what you would be available to us as we take down the final boss in ICC. Even if blizzard allowed us to trade in the Royal Scepter for a correctly itemized version we could use I could be happy but this is disappointing. I would be willing to spend a primordial saronite or even 200 gold like they did for the strength rep ring in ICC.
The only thing we can do now is wait and see if there will be any changes to the loot in the future. Good luck to everyone as you take on the Lich King and hopefully you are able to grab the Best in Slot weapon from a 10 man raid.
2/8/10 Looks like blizzard read my post :) they just stated in a blue post that they are changing Royal Scepter of Terenas II and removing the mp5 and replacing it with haste. this will make the weapon Best in Slot now.
