Phat Loot Phriday: Abracadaver

Abracadaver isn't just phat loot. It's awesome loot. Not only does Abracadaver have the best name ever, it's got an ability that delivers on that name the way Pizza Hut deliver Pizza. That's because Abracadaver lets you pull a corpse out of your hat. The name isn't just a clever pun -- it's a clever pun with abilities.

My favorite use of Abracadaver involves logging into the middle of Dalaran. Pop the Cadaver, and then run around screaming, "I'm a death knight! I'm a death knight!" Noone's fallen for it yet that I know of, but any second now that's going to happen. It could be that the Summoned Cadaver created by the staff doesn't have any kind of special name.

Admittedly, the Cadaver doesn't actually do much damage. He swipes for about 200 damage per hit on unarmored characters. While that's not a lot, you may decide his clever animations make up for his low damage. Or you may not.

In any case, check out more information about Abracadaver behind the cut.

How to Get It: Abracadaver drops from Festergut in 10-man Icecrown Citadel. That makes it fairly obtainable for such a fun item, even if it doesn't live on many best in slot lists. It has a 29% drop likelihood, it seems, so that makes it relatively easy to obtain.

Getting Rid of It: If you've grown tired of your dead best friend, you can turn Abracadaver into an Abyss Crystal. It also sells for 30 gold.
