Although this probably won't affect too many of us in the near future, Blizzard is already tinkering with many of the stats supplied by the Lich King's weapon drops. A community manager on the Korean site posted about upcoming changes to one Lich King-10 and four Lich King-25 weapons, and Boubouille's posted a translation with help from user Locriani. A lot of raiders had been surprised at the itemization decisions, and as a raiding healer, I've seen a lot of commentary concerning the uninspiring presence of MP5 on the Royal Scepter of Terenas II. Blizzard's specifically addressing these concerns.
The following is the list of changes Blizzard's planning to make to Lich King-25 weapons:
- Royal Scepter of Terenas II: MP5 replaced with haste rating.
- Archus, Greatstaff of Antonidas: Critical strike rating replaced with haste rating.
- Heaven's Fall, Kryss of a Thousand Lies: Armor penetration replaced with haste rating.
- Fal'inrush, Defender of Quel'thalas: Haste rating replaced with armor penetration.
- And on Lich King-10: Stormfury, Black Blade of the Betrayer: Armor penetration replaced with expertise.
EDIT: The changes have been confirmed by Ancilorn on the EU forums now as well.
