Phat Loot Phriday: Worldcarver

A big, bad axe from Ulduar this week.

Name: Worldcarver (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Epic Two-hand Axe
Damage/Speed: 632-949 / 3.40 (232.5 DPS)

  • +137 Strength, +136 Stamina


  • Improves haste by 70 and expertise by 87. In other words, it's a straight up DPS axe, designed for some powerful hacking and slashing and that's about it. No sockets, just lots of Strength. And the expertise helps out a lot as well.

  • It does look good, though. You can't argue that's not a serious looking axe.

How to Get It: It's dropped by Ignis the Furnace Master in Ulduar 25, normal mode. So all you have to do is go in and take Ignis down (not a completely easy feat, as Ignis is probably the toughest boss you'll face in the earliest part of the instance), and then win the roll over any other grabby fury warriors or death knights.

Getting Rid of It: Even without a legendary two-hand axe coming in Icecrown, this isn't necessarily best-in-slot for everyone, so you might well be replacing it higher up in Ulduar or in Trial of the Crusader. But when you do, vendors will give you 27g 92s 77c for it, or you can disenchant it into the usual Abyss Crystal.
