Last night, we killed the new temporary boss in Karazhan. Boostah had run Kara earlier in the week, before the boss was installed, and so he had a raid saved with only the new boss left, no trash or anything. Woo! So a bunch of us pilled in, looking to get the new pet and such.
Well, of course he dropped the [Arcanite Ripper]… I hadn’t really looked at it before, but I had heard about the sweet Use ability… turns you into Bergrisst of L70ETC. It’s actually a really amazing hunter weapon as well. So Boostah, the ret paly (?) and I rolled on it… Woo! I won! I felt a bit bad, since it was Boostah’s raid and he had organized everything… but come on, I have been switching between [Hellscream's Will] and [Blackened Spear] since shortly after I hit 70, over a year and a half ago. It is time for me to get rid of my last blue quality item!
Unfortunately, it does bring me 7 below the hit cap. I will probably have to shove a hit gem somewhere in my gear to make up for it, if I find that 7 hit rating is making a significant difference. I think that’s only like, 0.05%, so if it means I’ll be missing only that much on raid bosses, I can probably live with it. If anyone knows the math better (I’m too lazy to look it up) please correct me!
Oh, and the funny thing… back when I was using [Hellscream's Will] all the time, I always joked about how it looked like an electric guitar strapped to my back, and I always wanted to swing it around and play it… well, now I can!
