Phat Loot Phriday: Staff of Trickery


Yes, I'm pretty sure this is the second Feral Druid piece we've done in a row (even though last week was technically a combination of PvP gear). We'll do a Warlock piece next week -- or if there's something you're specifically wondering about, speak up in the comments. But look at that staff -- how could we pass this up?

Name: Staff of Trickery (Wowhead, Thottbot, Wowdigger)
Type: Epic Staff
Damage/Speed: 358-537 / 2.40 (186.5 DPS)
Abilities:
  • +89 Agility, +133 Stamina
  • Adds 1843 Feral Attack Power
  • Increases attack power by 180

  • This is the premium pre-raid Feral Druid tanking staff, as chosen by our own Allison Roberts. Sure, it's common (it's pretty easy to get, as you can see below), but not only are the stats great for Bear tanks, but it looks amazing as well. Those eyes glow even without an enchant! That's hot.
  • And Hunters, this weapon is not, I repeat not, for you. If there's a Bear Druid in your group who needs it, you've got to pass. That's the stuff of ursine nightmares -- a Hunter coveting this staff just because it's got all that Agility on it. Trust me, there are better weapons for you.
How to Get It: Drops from Cyanigosa, the last boss in Heroic Violet Hold. Violet Hold, I have to say, is the Black Morass of Wrath -- you get in, you fight a lot of stuff, you get out. It's perfect. And Skinners can go nuts in there, too -- almost everything you kill can be skinned with a nice chance of Icy Dragonscales. Definitely my favorite "Have 30 minutes?" instance.

The staff drops at about a 20% rate (probably a little less than that), which is why you can see it all over the place. But as Alison pointed out, there's a reason for that: until you head into Naxx and get some nice drops in there, this'll do ya right.

Getting Rid of It: Sells to vendors for 25g 67s 51c. Disenchants into an Abyss Crystal.
