Phat Loot Phriday: Crux of the Apocalypse

Mike Schramm

Been a long time since we did a dagger, so let's break out this badass stabby stick, just recently seen in the Sunwell Plateau.

Name: Crux of the Apocalypse (Wowhead, Thottbot, Wowdb)
Type: Epic One-hand Dagger
Damage/Speed: 164-247/1.80 (114.2 DPS)
  • +18 Agility, +15 Stamina, which makes this a nice weapon for either Hunters or Rogues. Hunters will probably say it's best for them, and Rogues will probably say they deserve it, but no matter who's getting this weapon, it's top of the line period. Just look where it drops from.
  • Red socket (perfect for a Subtle or Bright Crimson Spinel), +4 attack power bonus
  • Improves haste rating by 27 and attack power by 56. No matter how you look at it, this is a very, very nice dagger.
  • Just in case you're not up on your Latin, crux means cross, though it's also picked up another meaning in English as central or critical point. Either way, whenever you're stabbing someone with a central symbol of the Apocalypse, they're going to feel it.
How to Get It: Oh, nothing too hard -- it just drops from Kil'jaeden, the current endgame boss of World of Warcraft. So just, you know, beat the game, and then win the roll against that greedy Hunter or the grabby Rogue in your raiding group, and the knife is yours. Oh, and you'll probably want to do it again -- if you think one of these things is great, just think how awesome dual wielding them would be.

Getting Rid of It: You won't -- at least not until most of the way through Wrath of the Lich King. But when do you sell it, a vendor will give you 15g 52s 99c for it, or you can disenchant it into a Void Crystal.
