No husky loot this week -- with a name like "the Great Apocalypse," this sword is nothing but badass.Name:
Jin'rohk, the Great Apocalypse (Wowhead
Epic Two-hand SwordDamage/Speed:
380-570 / 3.70 (128.4 DPS)Abilities:
How to Get It:
- Equip: Improves haste rating by 45, which will help a little bit with that low speed (but look at that damage range!), will bring the speed back to 3.60, which brings it up to 131.8 DPS
- +49 Stamina, makes this a nice PvP two-hander
- Equip: Increases attack power by 120, which also adds to attack damage. There are better high-end two handers in the game, but anyone who likes to swing a big sword should like this one.
- Plus, look at it! And that name!
Drops from the troll himself, Zul'jin
, in Zul'Aman. Interestingly enough, Zul'jin means "Leader of voodoo" and jin means "leader," So this sword is clearly a leader, but leader of what? Rohk, in the Zandali Troll language
, actually means "end of worlds," or apocalypse. So if all the apocalypses you've ever seen in movies all got together (from Deep Impact
to I Am Legend
), one apocalypse would be standing above them all: Jin'rohk.
But yes, the sword drops from the last boss in Zul'Aman. Droprate is about 12%, so get to him, be someone who swings a two-hand sword and needs an upgrade, win the roll, and it's all yours. Just don't hurt yourself carrying it around.
Getting Rid of It:
Sells for a whopping 17g 81s 95c, and disenchants, as you might guess, into a Void Crystal. But the terrible effect that carrying the Leader of Apocalypses has on you for all time? Priceless.
