Name: Petrified Ivy Sprig (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDB)
Type: Epic Wand
Damage/Speed: 414-719 Nature / 1.80 (328.6 DPS)
- +19 Intellect, +22 Spirit, +26 Stamina. Which is actually less than that other big endgame wand, but wait, there's more:
- Improves hit rating by 29 and spell power by 45
- And there's a yellow socket, which is the real reason why this wand is best-in-slot. With the socket, you can boost whatever stats you like, and if you go yellow, you can get a socket bonus of +4 Spirit, too. Very nice.
- It's kind of a woodsy feel, too. Not sure I like it as much as the granite feel of a lot of Ulduar weapons, but it has a nice glowy charm.
Do I need to explain what a "sprig" is? It's an old Middle English word that talks about a shoot off of a tree. Or, actually, it also can be used for a "representation of a sprig," which is more likely what this is, given how it's sculpted together.
Getting Rid of It: Sells back to vendors for 16g 50s 60c, or disenchants into an Abyss Crystal. But hang on to this one -- it'll last you most of the way through the Argent Coliseum, I'd bet.
