This is the start of another new feature here at WoW Insider. Every Friday, we'll take a closeup look at another drool-worthy item in Azeroth-- we'll tell you what it is, why you want it, and how to get it. This week, we're starting off at the top, with the sword everyone loves to covet.
Name: Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker
Type: Unique Main hand Sword
Damage, Speed: 44-115 +16-30 Nature, 1.9 (53.9 DPS)
- +5 Agility, +8 Stam, +8 Fire Resist, +8 Nature Resist
- "Chance on hit: Blasts your enemy with lightning, dealing 300 Nature damage and then jumping to additional nearby enemies. Each jump reduces that victim's Nature resistance by 25. Affects 5 targets. Your primary target is also consumed by a cyclone, slowing its attack speed by 20% for 12 sec."
- Ability to turn anyone in Ironforge or Orgrimmar green with envy.
Then the fun really starts. Demetrian will summon the Prince Thunderaan, who, it turns out, is a ?? 40-man raid mob. So there's that. Loot the Wind Kissed Blade from Thunderaan-- if you can beat him-- and Demetrian will timidly hand you your new, shiny, sparky, sweet sword.
Auction Price: Yeah right. This sword is BOP, and you better believe it. If you are dumb enough to sell it to a vendor, they'll give you a whopping 25g 53s 55c for it. Don't sell it to a vendor.
