Phat Loot Phriday: Death's Bite

Mike Schramm

Another Twitter recommendation for Phat Loot Phriday this week, this one from @MEA_Alex. Probably our last piece of Naxx gear, too -- next time we'll get into Ulduar, as there is some really awesome stuff in there, too.

Death's Bite (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDigger)
Type: Epic Two-Hand Axe
Damage/Speed: 554-831 / 3.40 (203.7 DPS)
  • +101 Strength, +114 Stamina
  • Improves hit rating by 62, and crit strike rating by 90.

  • Overall, an excellent weapon for anyone who wants to wield a big axe for DPS, specifically Paladins, Death Knights, and oh yeah, Warriors.
  • And of course, with Titan's Grip, Warriors especially like this one. This is the kind of weapon where just one is scary, and two is horrifying.
  • Hunters do not want this one. There are much better weapons for you -- while the hit is nice, the lack of Agility means this is for big melee'ers who rely on Strength to kick up damage.
How to Get It: Drops from Kel'thuzad in Naxxramas 10-man. Unfortunately, with Glory of the Raider out of the game, your biggest problem might be finding a run -- everyone's heading to Ulduar starting this weekend. But gear like this is still attractive, especially for everyone's "other spec" now, and there'll still be quite a few PuGs in the old citadel (you can only run Ulduar once a week, right?). Get to KT, down him, win the roll against all of the DKs, Pallys, and Warriors who want this one, and it's yours.

Getting Rid of It: You might pretty soon -- there are definitely better weapons a little ways up the ladder (but again, with all of the dual specs going around, there's probably lots interesting rolls going on out there). Sells back to vendors for 26g 49s 57c, and will disenchant into an Abyss Crystal.
