Phat Loot Phriday: Nurturing Touch


This is a crazy-looking wand from Ulduar that spits out Holy damage like nobody's business.

Name: Nurturing Touch (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Epic Wand
Damage/Speed: 378-702 / 1.80 (300 DPS)
Attributes:
  • +29 Stamina, +26 Intellect, and +24 Spirit
  • Improves crit strike rating by 20, and spell power by 39
  • Pretty straightforward wand -- nothing too special about it. But it is a nice one, and it's likely an upgrade from anything you've gotten in Naxx or the earlier raid instances.


  • In fact, the most interesting thing about it is simply cosmetic -- that front part of it rotates in a very Ulduar-esque way, and when you use it to cast, a holy burst shoots out of it. As mana has become more and more prevalent, wands are more and more useless, but if you're raiding at this level and can use this one on your way to hard Ulduar, it's not a bad upgrade to take.
How to Get It: Drops from Auriaya, the seventh boss, just after Kolgarn, in normal mode Ulduar. She's a little nutty, and comes with some fun adds to deal with, but she's not too much trouble as long as you can get to her. Get her down, win the roll (obviously Priests are best for this weapon, but really, anyone who needs a wand upgrade can probably use it), and it's yours. You'll ditch it by the end of 25-man Ulduar, but still, it looks cool, right?

Getting Rid of It: Sells back to vendors for 16g 4s 17c, and disenchants into an Abyss Crystal. But you might want to keep it -- it almost seems so distinctive it should go with a Hallow's End costume of some kind, but I can't think of what.
