Lich King Loot Released and the best elemental weapon is...

Wednesday, February 3, 2010 | posted in , , | 5 comments

Tel'thas, Dagger of the Blood King

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.

According to MMO-Champion the royal scepter's mp5 is being changed to haste. A new contender has entered the arena!

The post has been changed to reflect the changes made by Blizzard.

Ok what is the best a ele shammy can get pre-raid. My mind only sees that sword for pally healers and hitcapped caster dps, the splintered paraphet of the citadel ( hideous btw) since that's what I play and I'm trying to advise a guildie on something he can get to trade in that staff....since I'm pretty sure that an ele shammydoesnt use staves...maybe the spectral kris? -fails at things nonpallyhealering-

Ok, so what you're saying in your post is that Royal Scepter of Terenas II is BiS. I beg to differ on the point that it's BiS for elemental shamans. If you have some ICC 25 heroic progress, the Frozen Bonspike from Marrowgar 25 man heroic would be better if you have a certain amount of haste. If you're around haste cap for raids: 1300, then the Frozen Bonspike would be alot better since it has more spell power, even if it's a weapon with spirit. Of course, the Lich King 25 man heroic mace would be better, but not a lot of people can get their hands on that weapon, since it's BiS for most casters and healers, and not many people have Lich King 25 man heroic on farm.

You might want to update :)
