Special edition of Phat Loot Phriday this week, on a Phursday! Why? Because tomorrow is gonna be full of fun in the California sun. We did Quel'serrar a while back, so with Onyxia headed back to the game, we'll look at the other piece of gear that involved the black dragon we love to hate. Name: Onx...

We haven't done a dagger in a while, if my memory serves. Plus, this one is made of stars. Name: Fang of Oblivion (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDB) Type: Epic Unique One-hand Dagger Damage/Speed: 271-407 / 1.80 (188.3 DPS) Attributes: +47 Agility, +54 Stamina, and a Yellow Socket, which will probably...

Mining Miners are given Toughness, an ability that at max rank, awards +50 stamina. This is a lovely bonus for tanks! A tank's talents will take this well beyond +500 hp, and stamina is also multiplied by buffs and talents such as Blessing of Kings (and not all stats are). This is also going to be h...

Yes, that's Thoralius the Wise from the Howling Fjord starting quests. When I saw him get up and start zoning out to his smoke brazier, the look on his face just meshed too well with today's subject matter, which is the health of shamans in melee. We talked about shaman health in PvP a while back, n...

This one's by request this week -- Twitter's own @Random_Tangent recommended it to us. We've done a few Ulduar items lately (we'll have to go phat next week), but here's another nice one. Name: Stormedge (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory) Type: Epic Two-hand Axe Damage/Speed: 594 - 892 / 3.50 (212.3 DPS)...

As much as Martin Fury would have been appropriate here today, we'll stick to actual player items for now. Here's a nice big scary mace to hope for from Ulduar's first boss this weekend. Name: Ironsoul (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory) Type: Two-hand Epic Mace Damage/Speed: 594 - 892 / 3.50 (212.3 DPS) ...

Tribunalx sent us this great video about something that's fallen out of fashion lately: Hunter soloing. Back in the day, when Mend Pet was still affected by plus healing (back when there was plus healing), Hunters would routinely take down Azuregos by themselves, but they've since had to sit on the ...

Another Twitter recommendation for Phat Loot Phriday this week, this one from @MEA_Alex. Probably our last piece of Naxx gear, too -- next time we'll get into Ulduar, as there is some really awesome stuff in there, too. Name: Death's Bite (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDigger) Type: Epic Two-Hand Axe Dam...

Lots of the endgame cloth headpieces look the same actually, but it's a good look -- the pointy head, the glowing eyes. And nothing says power than a name like "sheet lightning." Name: Cowl of Sheet Lightning (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDigger) Type: Epic Cloth Head Armor: 244 Attributes: +67 Stami...

We said we'd do a Warlock item this week, so here you go. Name: The Soulblade (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDigger) Type: Epic Main-hand Dagger Damage/Speed: 87-258 / 1.80 (96.0 DPS) Attributes: +39 Stamina, +44 Intellect, +42 Spirit And yes, that Spirit makes this about as Warlock as daggers come,...

Yes, I'm pretty sure this is the second Feral Druid piece we've done in a row (even though last week was technically a combination of PvP gear). We'll do a Warlock piece next week -- or if there's something you're specifically wondering about, speak up in the comments. But look at that staff -- ho...

Ok, so you remember how Titanguard, the 75 stamina weapon enchant, disappeared from 3.0.8? Apparently, that was intentional. Ghostcrawler spoke out yesterday on the rationale for removing it. In short, it was just too good. That 75 Stamina would have made it far and away the best tank enchant, and w...

This is one of the more legendary shields in the game at this point, even if it isn't actually Legendary. But it is for all you Blacksmiths out there looking for something to do. Name: Titansteel Shield Wall (Wowhead, Thottbot, Wowdigger) Type: Epic Shield Armor: 7350 Abilities: 211 Block, +36...

Welcome to another edition of Lichborne, which this week is so epic, so mind-blowing, that we just couldn't release on a lazy day like Sunday, which is why it is a day late. That is my story and I am sticking to it. So you're level 80 and you want to respec to a tank build and head straight into t...
