So, at this point, everyone knows that there is a new legendary mace coming in patch 3.1.
*starts singing* These purples do me no F*ing good, nothing like an orange legendary would. I smell a g-kick! I’m your basic druid looking for a guild… 55 purples good with any build!
Every time I hear news about the new legendary mace, the purple druid song gets stuck in my head.
I’ll probably never actually get one. However, I’d like to take a look at it. MMO-champion put up a whole page talking about the orange lewt of healing.
Er… I mean… Val’anyr – Hammer of the Ancient Kings
The quest to get the weapon can be completed by paladins, priests, shaman, and druids.
We don’t even have the actual stats for it, but because it’s oragnge, everyone wants one. Even my guild, still working on Sarth 2-drakes, is talking about how to decide who gets it.
Averna from Nerf this Druid spent some time talking about this new weapon recently.
For my guild, I think the pieces will just end up going to one of the few healers who are actually in our guild, since we run a mostly pug group. However, I don’t actually expect my guild to have someone running around with that mace very soon after Ulduar comes out or anything… but I’m still expecting it to be something that the officers have to spend time talking to everyone about, having meetings over, and dealing with anyone that gets grumpy about it… just because orange is always better than purple!
All guilds will still have to deal with who they will give the pieces to, as spreading out the pieces between all the healers will just really prevent anyone from actually seeing it. In the end, there have been legendaries in the game in previous raid instances. I remember one around for the original Naxx & AQ40 that was built about the same way as this one. Just remember to not get upset over loot. In the end, you’ll replace it with something better at some point. So, please don’t be hard on your poor guild officers, try to be understanding, and go with whatever they decide for how to prioritize the legendary lewts.
