Phat Loot Phriday: Ironsoul

Mike Schramm

As much as Martin Fury would have been appropriate here today, we'll stick to actual player items for now. Here's a nice big scary mace to hope for from Ulduar's first boss this weekend.

Name: Ironsoul (Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory)
Type: Two-hand Epic Mace
Damage/Speed: 594 - 892 / 3.50 (212.3 DPS)
  • +105 Strength, +126 Stamina
  • Improves crit strike rating by 69 and armor penetration rating by 84.

  • Obviously a melee mace -- anyone who likes to hit things with a big piece of metal will enjoy using this (Paladins, Warriors, Death Knights, and even Shamans, though you all are probably dual wielding). And yes, it is a mace -- while it looks more like an axe than anything else,the experts in the Wowhead comments say this is a flanged mace, designed to penetrate armor rather than provide bashing damage. It's sharp, it's scary, and it's big. What more do you want?
How to Get It: Drops from Flame Leviathan, the first boss in the new Ulduar instance. He's the vehicle boss, so it might take a little learning by your guild to figure out how to drive things, but once you do, he should go down pretty easy. Drop the boss, win the roll (which probably shouldn't be too hard -- there are really only so many two-hander DPSers out there, so odds are you'll be saving this thing from D/E rather than fighting anyone else for it), and the item is yours.

Getting Rid of It:
If you're really sold on swinging around a two-hander, you might not for about halfway through Ulduar. But if you do decide to ditch it, it'll sell for 26g 82s 97c, and will disenchant into an Abyss Crystal.
