Blacksmiths received a happy surprise in the latest beta build that launched tonight in the form of a bunch of new craftable gear, including the ability to add a socket slot to belts
, and gloves
and some nice new epic items. So far, we're seeing epic helms and boots of three different playstyles:
The epic weapon options also have good variety, though they're missing an obvious tanking weapon. There's the Titansteel Bonecrusher
(a one-hander with stamina and AP), the Titansteel Guardian
(a level 80 spell power weapon with less spell power than what I'm wielding at level 70 -- open to guesses on who Blizzard expects to use this one), and the Titansteel Destroyer
(the two-hander every Death Knight wants).
That's all the epics, but if you want to see all of the recent additions, check them out in our blacksmithing gallery!
