Phat Loot Phriday: Deep Thunder, Reborn

Phat Loot Phriday Deep Thunder, Reborn
"Throgg, we're supposed to be finding your dog."

"Our dog."

"Your dog," Lolegolas countered. "What are you doing in there? We're in a hurry."

"It's an outhouse," Throgg replied from behind the wooden door. "It's the Throne of Thunder. What do you think I'm doing?"

"Forging Deep Thunder," Lolegolas said. "Reborn."

"Really, little elf?" Throgg sighed.

"I've dealt with your puns for years. At this point, I'm allowed more than a few in vengeance."

"Doesn't matter. Can't make that until we get to the Lightning Forge."

"Thunder & Lightning," the blood elf commented idly. "I get it. It's like a theme. Maybe we can get a flame decal up the side of something to help illustrate the awesomeness."

"Why not?" Throgg asked. The outhouse shook a little. "You'd look good with mullet."

"I'd rather re-elect Garrosh."

The outhouse only thundered in response.

Item Note: Finally, it's the return of that old standby of overpowered Arenas... Deep Thunder. I kept wondering when it would make its comeback.

Phat Loot Phriday brings you the scoop on some of the most ... interesting ... loot in the World of Warcraft, often viewed through the eyes of the stalwart Throgg and indelible Lolegolas. Suggest items you think we should feature by emailing

The Light and How to Swing It: Gearing up your Retadin for Karazhan part I

So you're finally 70. Welcome to the select order of masochistic players who endured the tedious grind (or, if you leveled as Protection, the happy AoE grind) to max level with a class sometimes considered to be a WoW developer's afterthought. The Paladin class, popular as it is, has traditionally had a slow development cycle. That said, one can choose to see it as a blessing (pardon the pun) rather than a curse, in the hopes that developers will build Paladin talents adaptively and from the lessons provided by other classes. Don't hold your breath.

Anyway, so you're Level 70. You're now ready to enter Karazhan. Well, ok, not really. Right about now is when you should be gearing up for Karazhan, The Burning Crusade's entry level and most popular raid instance. With the removal of the attunement process in Patch 2.4, you won't even need to have The Master's Key, but you'll need to have a friend who can open the gate for you. More than a few Holy Paladins will have an easy time getting into a group for Karazhan because let's face it, everybody loves a healer. Then there are the Paladin tanks who'll get that loving invite to visit Deadwind Pass because, again, everybody loves a tank. But you, the vindictive 2-hander-wielding, Judgement-spamming, Crusader Striking champion of truth and justice... well, nobody loves you.
