Patch 3.0.8 is bringing an interesting change to one of the more nostalgic items added to the game recently besides the many Heirloom items that came with Wrath.
The Arcanite Ripper, a nod to the Arcanite Reaper
of old, is getting a graphical overhaul. Its new model is much cooler, but it's a little sad to see that model go. I'm not too busted up about it, because I can still pick up a Bloodied Arcanite Reaper
if I get sentimental.
The new Ripper will use the guitar model used by Bergrisst
of the Tauren Chieftains (who you transform into upon right clicking the weapon). The new model is way
cooler looking, but it's still a little sad to see the old one go. Despite the more awesome model, I can't help but feel my attachment to my Paladin's Ripper fading away.
