This was an awesome questline, that took quite a bit of time, effort, and help from your friends even at level 80. I think I may use Ravencrest's Legacy as my tanking sword once Transmogrification comes around, just as a reminder of having done all this.

Same here.I'm glad for Void Storage as a great place to keep my Scepter, as well. Despite its uselessness, I'd never want to get rid of it.This is one quest chain I'm very glad I took the time and effort to complete before it disappeared.

I did it at 80, after the Hallion patch. I also did the Dungeon Set 2 questline for good measure (even though they didn't announce it was going away).I have to say, it was a blast. I had to recruit help for the giant shark, clearing BWD, and killing that crazy mind-controlling Gnome, my guildies were very generous in helping me complete it (thanks Mon, Don, and Z)!I still have the recipe for Dirge's Kickin' Chimaeroc Chops in my bank, awaiting the day when (or if) they become cookable again. With the cataclysm you can't get the chops to roast anymore. :P

Yeah, I'm thinking it'll be a good weapon to transmorg too. It'll be nice to show it off a bit in raids or randoms. I also get a lot of mileage out of my Band of Icy Depths. This quest chain ranked number one for me in terms of total satisfaction after completion, followed by the quest chain to upgrade the Dungeon Set 1 into Dungeon Set 2.

And for people who want to fake it, there's Maladath, Runed Blade of the Black Flight http://www.wowhead.com/item=19351 which has the same model and skin :P There is, however, a dark-skin variant that dropped from one of the nightmare dragons which is no longer available: http://www.wowhead.com/item=20577

I'm planning on using Ravencrest's with the Nightmare Blade for dual wielding. Same model, different colour.They're great looking swords.

I deeply wish for another grand epic questline not connected to legendaries, much as I wish for another incredible world event. It's things like this that make me regret being a cata baby, even though I know I've enjoyed the game more this way. It's kind of sad, because it makes me feel like the greatest things to be done in WoW have already passed; the best we could do is gone. No matter how incredible the slaying of elemental lords and Old Gods is, they're just bosses. Wouldn't it make sense for there to be world bosses again in some fashion? The Whale Shark is sort of the best form of that- no loot, only the fun of the kill. Imagine, an Old God rises from the earth, more powerful than any that came before, and it keeps coming back. For it to be beaten, the entire server has to fight against it; low-level players taking on the outlying tentacles, and as you go in they become more powerful, until at the center it's a race to defeat the beast's central body. It could become more powerful for each part of its body remaining, with a buff that stacks for each tentacle, floating eye, etc., so that it can't be beaten if the respawns aren't constantly being taken care of.Just a ramble that occurred to me, but with all the Old God buildup we've seen, it makes sense.

@Bellajtok I totally agree with you. Being a late-end Wrath baby, and a very infrequent player, although enthusiastic about the game, I regret all the older events and play style of WoW I never got to experience.It's like that for a lot of MMO's huh? Either something really cool happened in game/the game used to have a constant, super-cool society.I remember in Runescape, I played everyday for years, enjoying socializing with random people, meeting weirdos, and organizing RP events (not/lore based)Then one day, about 2/3 years later I went back to the game, and realized, from a GAME point of view, how much it sucked. You moved by clicking for Pete's sake.WoW is a little different. The game is GOOD. VERY good. But at the end of the day, it is what it is, a MMORPG: Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing GameTo me, it seems like WoW these days, is barely acheiving the Massive, Role Playing parts, and the Multiplayer is at a bare minimum. Specific stories may apply, but things seem socially dead besides hanging out ONLY with friends IF they're on. I re-skimmed my post. I may be exaggerating a bit, but I'm not wrong when I say that things WoW are sort of in a decline. Its not a bad thing, WoW is big enough to pull itself out, but theres a reason Runescape servers tend to only number 300-700 these days instead of the days when it was constantly 600-1000, and theres a reason WoW recently plunged almost a million subscribers...On that depressing note, I still like the game and think it provides quality entertainment, but I think it does need to incorporate more interesting, social, RP events that make it stand out in my mind, instead of staying as "just another game I play"
