This is the start of another new feature here at WoW Insider. Every Friday, we'll take a closeup look at another drool-worthy item in Azeroth-- we'll tell you what it is, why you want it, and how to get it. This week, we're starting off at the top, with the sword everyone loves to covet.Name:
Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the WindseekerType:

With a sword like this one, you know it's going to be a long journey. Start off in Molten Core, where Baron Geddon and Garr will drop either the left or right half of the Bindings of the Windseeker. Then head over to Silithus and Highlord Demetrian, who will give you the Vessel of Rebirth and a quest, "Thunderaan the Windseeker." That'll require you to get both Bindings, an Essence of the Firelord (dropped from Ragnaros) and ten Elementium Bars (for those, you'll need a blacksmith to put together 10 Elementium Ore, 100 Arcanite Bars, 10 Firey Cores, and 30 Elemental Flux).
Then the fun really starts. Demetrian will summon the Prince Thunderaan, who, it turns out, is a ?? 40-man raid mob. So there's that. Loot the Wind Kissed Blade from Thunderaan-- if you can beat him-- and Demetrian will timidly hand you your new, shiny, sparky, sweet sword.Auction Price:
Yeah right. This sword is BOP, and you better believe it. If you are dumb enough to sell it to a vendor, they'll give you a whopping 25g 53s 55c for it. Don't sell it to a vendor.
