A great favorite of my guild, Dartol's Rod of Transformation is a bit of an unusual item. It doesn't have any stats, and it doesn't do any damage; no, this is a far more potent piece of loot. It transforms you into a Furbolg for three minutes. And let me tell you, there's nothing quite like a Furbolg charging up to bubble-pull Onyxia, followed by a dozen more Furbolgs and assorted other folks. The effect breaks if you receive damage, but the cooldown is only one minute, so it shouldn't be too hard to stay furbied up most of the time.

How do you get it? Simple, just follow the quest chain "Raene's Cleansing" in Ashenvale (18 is the level of the first quest). Sorry, Hordies, but this one's Alliance-only. There's one catch: you can't finish the quest line, because if you do, they take away your pretty rod. The best way to go about it is just to not accept the follow-up: as soon as you get your rod, walk away smiling. Unfortunately, a few of us Alliance folks have completed the entire quest chain; for us, as for hordies, there's pretty much no way to get Dartol's Rod. But at least we still get Paladins on our side! (What's that? Horde Paladins in the expansion? Yeah right. Screenshot or it didn't happen.)
