  • Grants 1844 feral attack power if you're large and furry.
  • Works well for Death Knights or any other two-hand wielders who want to do a lot of DPS. It's not actually best-in-slot, as there are other two-hand weapons that exist in the game that will probably do better. But if it drops while you need a nice upgrade, it's definitely a nice upgrade.
  • Plus, the name is cool. This is actually an upgrade from the old Naxx's Might of Menethil, and while some people (probably Alliance) like the old name better, I prefer Demise.
How to Get It: You still pick it up in Naxxramas, but now it drops from Heigan the Unclean. And yes, that's the dance boss. The good news is that even if you can't survive it (I've been having trouble -- the lag usually has me behind where I'm supposed to be), there's probably some folks in your raid that can. So ride right along with those guys, wait for this one to drop, and then win the roll against anyone else who wants to swing around a giant mace. (Or two, I guess, if you happen to be a Warrior.)

Getting Rid of It:
Sells off to vendors for a whopping 24g 41s 3c, and disenchants, as with all of the other epics at the current endgame, into an Abyss Crystal. We've been saying that a lot lately -- maybe next week we'll do a husky loot item. As always if you have any suggestions, throw them in the comments below.
