Phat Loot Phriday: Blue Murloc Egg

With BlizzCon going down as we speak, what better item to cover than the hookup lots of people got at Blizzard's last big event (this event, you'll remember, we're all getting the Murloc Suit). And on a more personal note, let me just say that: God, I hate Murky.

Name: Blue Murloc Egg
Type: Noncombat Pet
  • Summons Murky, an annoying (some say "cute"), periodically dancing Murloc
  • When you click on him, he even makes the Murggurguguglglgg murloc sound, which you can actually download from the WoW Wiki page. Although I don't know why you would-- it sounds like a cat coughing up a hairball while trying to sing.
  • God, I hate Murky. Whenever my guildie pulls him out, I just feel the urge to punt him (even moreso than gnomes). Murlocs are bad enough as it is, but when they're cute and tiny... Ugh. Hate, hate, hate Murky.
How to Get It: You can't, unless you attended BlizzCon 2005-- Murky was one of the giveaways to attendees there, and Blizzard hasn't given him out since. They have given away a Pink Murloc Egg to European players (after they messed up their Burning Crusade netherwhelp pets)-- that summoned a very similar (but pink) dancing murloc named Gurky. And with all the possible name combinations (Lurky, Turky, Jerky), and green, purple, and orange baby murlocs found within the game files, there may be more baby murlocs coming to a giveaway near you in the future (ugh, I hope not). But for now, if Murky's not yours, he never will be.

Good riddance, I say.

Getting Rid of It:
See? Vendors hate him too-- they won't take him. So the only way to get rid of him is by destroying the egg-- I recommend high-velocity punting.

Phat Loot Phriday: Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker

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 Windseeker
Type: Unique Main hand Sword
Damage, Speed: 44-115 +16-30 Nature, 1.9 (53.9 DPS)
  • +5 Agility, +8 Stam, +8 Fire Resist, +8 Nature Resist
  • "Chance on hit: Blasts your enemy with lightning, dealing 300 Nature damage and then jumping to additional nearby enemies. Each jump reduces that victim's Nature resistance by 25. Affects 5 targets. Your primary target is also consumed by a cyclone, slowing its attack speed by 20% for 12 sec."
  • Ability to turn anyone in Ironforge or Orgrimmar green with envy.
How to get it: 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.
