Reader Angie sent us a curious Armory profile
of a Warlock
who was able to obtain the classic legendary one-handed weapon Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker
. Although no raiding guild in their right minds would've allowed such a travesty to happen no matter how much DKP the Warlock had back in the day, now in a time where Onyxia is visited every few days for some easy Gold, anything goes.
This news comes on the heels of what is reputedly a world first Death Knight obtaining the legendary sword
. Here's the kicker, though... the left and right Bindings of the Windseeker
have class restrictions (revised to include Death Knights)... and Warlocks aren't among those eligible to start the quest chain. Mages
and Warlocks are both casters who can equip swords, but this doesn't explain how the Warlock obtained the item. [EDIT:
Whoops. Looks like I dropped the ball on this one. Daniel
already wrote that even though the Bindings have class restrictions on the tooltip, they're actually usable by any class according to Blizzard
The Warlock's guild seems to be a rather accomplished one (the 'lock has The Immortal
title), so there's a good chance that getting the weapon was a guild effort. It's quite possible that the Dormant Wind Kissed Blade
that drops off Thunderaan was assigned by Master Looter to the Warlock, who then started the quest.
