Phat Loot Phriday: Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat


Yes, I did just get this last night, but actually, we're doing this one based on @ronaldscott's Twitter recommendation.

Name: Weather-beaten Fishing Hat (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Rare Cloth Head
Armor: 127
Attributes:
  • +40 Stamina, +40 Spirit
  • On equip: increased fishing +5. This hat isn't to be confused with the Lucky Fishing Hat, which also gives this fishing bonus, and is available only through turn-ins at the Stranglethorn Fishing Tournament. +5 bonus isn't a huge bonus to fishing at all (your main +bonus comes from your fishing pole), but given that it's an extra +5, it's worth having.

Phat Loot Phursday: Onyxia Scale Cloak

Special edition of Phat Loot Phriday this week, on a Phursday! Why? Because tomorrow is gonna be full of fun in the California sun.

We did Quel'serrar a while back, so with Onyxia headed back to the game, we'll look at the other piece of gear that involved the black dragon we love to hate.

Name: Onxyia Scale Cloak (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDB)
Type: Cloak
Armor: 43
Abilties:
  • +7 Stamina, +16 Fire resistance. Ah, the days of level 60, they seem so far gone now. Compare this to a prime tanking cloak nowadays, and take a look at just how far we've come.
  • On equip, protects the wearer from being fully engulfed by something called Shadow Flame. What is Shadow Flame, you ask? Here's where this item really gets interesting: sit back and enjoy a tale of old level 60 raiding.
  • Shadow Flame is actually an ability used by Nefarian, Onyxia's brother, and a few other bosses in Blackwing Lair. He casts a huge unblockable AoE during his fight -- unblockable, that is, unless you're wearing one of these cloaks (although since then, Ice Block and Divine Shield will both stop it).

Phat Loot Phriday: Marrowstrike


Here's something for you Hunters to go after in the 5-man Trial this weekend.

Name: Marrowstrike (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Epic Polearm
Damage/Speed: 570-856 / 3.50 (212.3 DPS)
Attributes:
  • +106 Agility, +101 Stamina
  • Yellow socket (nice for +Hit gems, though you can put whatever you want in there) with a +4 Agility socket bonus

Phat Loot Phriday: Wisdom's Hold

Not all shields are for blocking. If you're a Shaman or a Pally, this caster shield is probably droolworthy.

Name: Wisdom's Hold (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDB)
Type: Epic Shield
Armor: 8130, 227 Block
Attributes:
  • +70 Stamina, +48 Intellect, which means lots of HP and Mana for you.
  • Improves crit strike by 40, haste by 47, and spell power by 75. Nice set of bonuses there, too.
  • And a blue socket, with a socket bonus of +5 spell power. It's a slight upgrade over Voice of Reason, the other big caster shield near endgame, but enough of an upgrade that you want this one if you can get it.

Phat Loot Phriday: Petrified Ivy Sprig


Let's do a wand! A really, really hot wand, too -- best in slot for most casters in the game right now.

Name: Petrified Ivy Sprig (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDB)
Type: Epic Wand
Damage/Speed: 414-719 Nature / 1.80 (328.6 DPS)
Attributes:

Phat Loot Phriday: Constellus


Not all of us get to run around with Val'aynr. But for you mace casters out there who aren't first on your guild's Legendary list, here's another sweet mace to hunt down.

Name: Constellus (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)Type: Epic Main Hand Mace
Damage/Speed: 93-298 / 1.80 (108.8 DPS)
Attributes:
  • +55 Stamina, +54 Intellect
  • Blue socket with a +5 Spell Power bonus
  • Improves crit strike rating by 29, restores 19 mana per five seconds, and improves spell power by 587

Phat Loot Phriday: The Boreal Guard


Haven't done a shield in a while, so here's a cool-looking one to try for in Ulduar this weekend.

Name: The Boreal Guard (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Epic Shield
Armor: 7960 (223 Block)
Attributes:
  • +39 Strength, +92 Stamina. Pretty standard for a tanking shield.
  • Two sockets: Red and Blue. This is what pretty much puts this baby over the top in terms of endgame tanking shields -- get some extra Strength, Stamina, and/or Defense in there, and this shield matches up against stuff that drops from the very hardest bosses in the game.

Phat Loot Phriday: Touch of Madness


Since Rogues will be able to break out the Axes in patch 3.2, here's one for you stabby-stabby types to start aiming for now.

Name: Touch of Madness (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDB)
Type: Epic One-hand Axe
Damage/Speed: 297-552 / 2.60 (163.3 DPS)
Attributes:
  • +24 Agility, +52 Stamina
  • Improves hit rating by 34, crit strike rating by 26, and attack power by 92

Phat Loot Phriday: Silent Fang


This is a nice piece of hefty (as in, anyone can get it, not just the top raiders) loot from Twitter's own @Wibbels. It's a sword from around level 60 with a breathtaking proc.

Name: Silent Fang (Wowhead, Thottbot, Goblin Workshop)
Type: Rare One-hand Sword
Damage/Speed: 45-85 / 1.60 (40.6 DPS)
Abilities:
  • There's actually only one, and it's a crazy chance on hit: if it procs (around 5%), the enemy hit is silenced for a full six seconds. Complete silence (no spells, no casting, no nothing) for six seconds, 5% of the time. Pretty awesome, right? Unfortunately, as with everything, there's a catch.

Phat Loot Phriday: Fang of Oblivion


We haven't done a dagger in a while, if my memory serves. Plus, this one is made of stars.

Name: Fang of Oblivion (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDB)
Type: Epic Unique One-hand Dagger
Damage/Speed: 271-407 / 1.80 (188.3 DPS)
Attributes:
  • +47 Agility, +54 Stamina, and a Yellow Socket, which will probably let you add to crit, hit or haste, depending on what you need more of, with a +4 Agility socket bonus.
  • +1869 Feral attack power, so you can do more damage in your new kitty form.

Phat Loot Phriday: Ironmender


Here's an offhand, one that works pretty well for Priests.

Name: Ironmender (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Epic Off-hand
Damage/Speed: N/A
Abilities:
  • +54 Stamina, +47 Intellect, +45 Spirit
  • Improves haste rating by 36 and spell power by 74.

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.

Phat Loot Phriday: Porcelain Bell


This is a weird one -- we've been doing Ulduar epics lately, but here's something a little different for you to hunt down.

Name: Porcelain Bell (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Poor Salvage Item
Damage/Speed: N/A
Attributes:
  • Embellished with a figure reaching toward a swan. This is a grey piece of vendor trash, probably the worst quality item we've ever featured here.
  • Wait a minute Mike, I can hear you saying, this is supposed to be Phat Loot Phriday. Why are you showing us a piece of vendor junk? Because, my friends, in the eyes of the vendors, this little bell is worth more than the Warglaives of Azzinoth combined (and you could even throw in Thori'dal, too). Yes, this little bell sells to vendors for... wait for it... 100g.

Phat Loot Phriday: Stormedge


This one's by request this week -- Twitter's own @Random_Tangent recommended it to us. We've done a few Ulduar items lately (we'll have to go phat next week), but here's another nice one.

Name: Stormedge (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Epic Two-hand Axe
Damage/Speed: 594 - 892 / 3.50 (212.3 DPS)
Abilities:
  • Um, it's badass?
  • +106 Strength, +125 Stamina. Which means this is a straight-up 2h DPS weapon -- the Strength adds a huge damage bonus to Warriors, Death Knights, Feral Druids (edit: well nevermind then), and Paladins by giving them a +212 attack power just from the weapon alone, not to mention other places Strength is used. Shamans also get a buff -- not quite as big, but still nice.

Phat Loot Phriday: Northern Barrier


Been a while since we did a shield. And since we did a BoE, actually. So here's both in one.

Name: Northern Barrier (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWWiki)
Type: Epic Shield
Armor: 7890 Armor (221 Block)
Attributes:
  • +42 Strength, +94 Stamina
  • Increases defense rating by 63, which is just awesome.
