How to Get It:
- Increases Defense rating by 31 and parry rating by 34. So it's obviously a tanking axe. Which is too bad...
- ... because it also adds to your hit by 24. That's a nice stat for melee and even some Hunters, but with the rest of the stats on this one, it remains squarely in the domain of the meatshields.
- Plus, it has a face. A demon face. This axe is so metal.
- And it'll give you the last laugh, because with all of that Defense, you'll still be standing when your foes run out of HP. And as the old Italian saying goes, "Ride bene chi ride l'ultimo."
It drops from Kel'thuzad in Heroic Naxxramas. So this one is pretty attainable, actually -- we've been doing a lot of Ulduar stuff lately, but most guilds running 25-mans are able to clean out Naxx, so get your guild in there on Heroic mode, drop the big bad KT, and be a lucky, roll-winning tank to pick this one up. You DPS melee folks might sigh when you see a nice high damage axe like this go to a tank, but you can't argue with the Defense. Pass on this one and find your own. Getting Rid of It:
Sells for 23g 7s 55c back to vendors, and disenchants into an Abyss Crystal. Can you imagine getting stabbed with one of those horns or getting caught on those bony teeth? I'm telling you: metal.
