Remember, however, that this is the test realm so there's a good chance the boss is undertuned and will be a bit harder come patch 3.3.

MMO Champion has pointed out something that should make Warrior and Shaman weaponsmiths rather happy: all one-handed epic weaponsmithing weapons will be non-unique as of 2.4.2.
