An interesting new wrinkle in patch 5.4
has been discovered, in the form of a whole host of new Bind to Account weapons
found in the files for Siege of Orgrimmar. Available in Flexible Raid, normal and heroic levels (although for many of them, only one or two versions have yet been found) these items use the old Horde PvP models, although that may not be final. We know that the items are not finished
, their item levels are not finalized at this time. Still, items like Hellscream's Decapitator
are interesting for a variety of reasons. Will they behave like current heirlooms and Archaeology BoA's like Zin'rokh
, meaning that you could send them to your alts of either faction? BoA items like these could definitely provide an alt with a leg-up on gearing, and making them available only via Flex and Normal/Heroic would definitely get players interested in checking out Flex Raids.
At present we have a variety of datamined Hellscream's items - In addition to the Decapitator above, we have the Barrier
, Pig Sticker
, Shield Wall
, Tome of Destruction
, War Staff
. No word yet on whether or not these items will be usable with transmogrification, considering that at present the original PvP items require certain PvP ranks to use them with transmog.
