  • Very nice dagger no matter what you're doing. The speed is a little slow (most daggers at this level are at 1.40), so some Rogues may complain that they lose a little bit of DPS with this one (in general, a faster weapon is better when you're aiming for poison procs, since a weapon that hits more often has more chances to apply poison), but especially if you're hunting for an upgrade in the Heroics, odds are that this will help, either in the MH or OH slots. There's an upgrade in Naxx, but for five mans, this is an excellent melee dagger to have.
  • Plus, it looks weird. It's like you're cutting someone up with a horn!
How to Get It: Drops from the Heroic version of Sjonnir the Ironshaper, a boss in the Halls of Stone. The fight is notable for the cameo of one of Warcraft's most famous unseen lore figures, Brann Bronzebeard himself. Finish him off, hope the droprate shines on you (it's about 20%, so it's not too bad), and the dagger is yours. Then start looking for a Naxx group, because you can probably find an upgrade in there without too much trouble.

Getting Rid of It: Vendors will give you 19g 82s 85c for it, or, being epic, it'll disenchant into a Abyss Crystal.
