Phat Loot Phriday: Tenacious Defender

Mike Schramm

Blizzard really went over the top with the loot in Outland-- just when you think the loot can't get any phatter, it does. But early on in one of the first instances there, a lot of players are chuckling about this Warrior belt.

Name: Tenacious Defender (Tenacious D for short)
Type: Rare Plate Belt
Armor: 491

  • This is one of the first socketed items you'll come across, which means you can put jewels in it for extra abilities. This one takes two red jewels, and when they're both in, you get +3 Resilience.
  • +15 Strength, +14 Agility, +19 Stamina
  • Oh, and one more thing: in the tooltip for the item, we're told that "It has the power... to move you." Yes, this is a sly Blizzard reference to the band that wrote the Greatest Song in the World (which isn't actually anything like this song), Tenacious D. Jack Black and Kyle Gass' legendary music lives in Outland! A few players think it would be nice to eventually see a Pickaxe of Destiny, but I'd get more benefit from a Junior Western Bacon Chee. That's a JUNIOR western bacon chee-- I'm trying to watch my figure.
How to Get It: This is one of the drops from Omor the Unscarred, one of the two end bosses in the first Outland instance, Hellfire Citadel's Ramparts. Actually, most people I've run it with do Omor first and the dragon, Nazan, last-- Omor's the big Doomguard fella off by himself. Finish him, wait for this to drop (it's showing up at about 11%), and you too can be Wonderboy. You could kill a yak, maybe even from 200 yards away.

Getting Rid of It: It's BOP, and sells for a measly 2g 40s 92c to vendors. I'm not sure if socketing it raises its price (because I haven't socketed anything yet), though-- anyone have insight on that one?
