WOW Classic Items
World of Warcraft Classic is compromised of countless items. In this article, we will discuss how items have been approached in World of Warcraft Classic, and other topics such as desirable items.
Are the stats of items volatile with future updates?
Future updates will not affect the stats of items. On the release of Classic, the game is using the 1.12 patch. After release, there are six stages of further content being introduced over an extended period of time, like it was with the original release. In future updates, World of Warcraft Classic items changed stats, boosts and many balance changes were done over an extended period of time.
With that said, you will not have to worry about items changing as you progress through the game with future updates. All items will be released exactly as they were in 1.12, with no changes coming in any of the six stages nor any known future updates. The entire purpose is to recapture the perfect polished vibe of World of Warcraft prior to the infamous Burning Crusade expansion.
What are legendary items?
Legendary items, as the name suggests, requires you to go to great lengths to acquire them. They are a frequent source of confusion for all new players in the game.
Legendary items have great importance in vanilla World of Warcraft. While the current version of WOW has item/weapon tiers such as Artifacts (introduced in Legion expansion) and Heirlooms (introduced in Wrath expansion). These tiers of items certainly weren’t present in the 1.12 patch of the game that Classic evolves around. Legendary items are milestones for raiding, so without further ado, here are the legendary items and how to obtain them.
Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros
Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros is one of the two legendary items available in Classic. The item binds to your character when picked up, is a mace (two-handed) and deals 223-372 damage at the speed of 3.7, which means 80.41 DPS (damage per second). The unique item further provides you +12 strength, +30 fire resistance and +30 stamina. It is item level 80, and you do need to be level 60 to wield it, which is coincidentally the max in World of Warcraft Classic. But with durability of 145/145 and all the aforementioned stats, it’s hard to overlook this item.
The weapon isn’t dropped by itself and is used by Ragnaros the Firelord. You need to craft this item. You must obtain the Sulfuron Hammer and Eye of Sulfuras. You may be wondering, how hard is it to exactly obtain these two items? A blacksmith (a primary profession) with a skill of 300 (max) is required to make the Sulfuron Hammer. To obtain the eye, that’s where RNG and the grind enter the building. The Eye of Sulfuras is only dropped by Ragnaros the Firelord, a formidable boss, and the chance of it being dropped is unfortunately low. With that said, it is highly worth grinding for.
Additionally, each time you deliver a hit, you have a chance of hurtling a fiery ball that delivers astonishing 273-333 fire damage, with an additional 75 damage over the succeeding 10 seconds. Of course, this is only a chance-on-hit, not a guarantee. In addition, equipping it delivers 5 fire damage to anyone who attacks you with a melee attack, and this is guaranteed.
You can obtain the item and fight Ragnaros in Molten Core, which is a 40-player raid instance. It will be available right from the bat of Classic’s launch, starting at Phase/Stage 1.
Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker
The Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker is the second and final legendary item in World of Warcraft Classic or World of Warcraft Vanilla. Unlike the Ragnaros, this is a sword, not a mace. It is thus a one-handed weapon, dealing 44-115 damage (53.95 DPS) at the speed of 1.9. You will also gain +5 agility, +8 stamina, +9 nature resistance and, +8 fire resistance. Like the previous item, it binds to your character upon picking it up. Its durability is 125/125 and requires your character to also be level 60, which is again, max in Classic WOW.
To acquire this item, it is the ultimate reward of an expensive and challenging quest line. This quest line may only be started by certain classes, those being:
● Death Knights
The weapon is actually in two pieces. There are the left and right Bindings of the Windseekers. Baron Geddon and Garr have one piece each. Both these bosses are available to fight in Molten Core, the 40-player raid instance we previously mentioned. Of course, these drops aren’t certain. The quest is activated as long as you loot either half of the bindings. After getting both pieces, you need the Essence of the Firelord, which is a 100% certain drop from Ragnaros, as long as you have the quest! Ragnaros is the Firelord in Molten Core. You then need not one, but ten pieces of Elementium Bar, which is obtained from smelting rare Molten Core and Blackwing Lair (another raid) reagents. Upon delivering all three items on the list, you will receive the blessed blade!
The weapon is very desirable. On each hit, there’s a chance of smacking your enemy with lightning, dealing them with a gobsmacking 300 nature damage, then jumping to any nearby enemies that are also present! Each lightning jump to additional enemies reduces the victim’s nature resistance by 25. However, this effect is limited to only five enemies – it’s not unlimited or overpowered, and there’s only a chance of it happening in the first place. On top of the lightning effects, the original target is also consumed by a cyclone. This means your enemies’ attack speed is reduced by 20% for 12 seconds.
