Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Achievementseeker

I got a bit lucky today…

Gavendo seen sporting Heroic Tier 10 armor, wielding the legendary sword Thunderfury and Ravencrest's Legacy (from the Scepter of the Shifting Sands questline). Looking quite hot.

Finally got the last piece after… I don’t know how many months to be honest. But I am really glad to have finished this fantastic looking blade!

This means there are at least two hunters in the blogging scene who own this blade. Are there more of you out there?

PTR Build 13793

There were some hunter changes on the last PTR build, datamined by MMO-Champion:


  • Multi-Shot now deals 138% weapon damage, up from 118%.
  • Freezing Trap – Only one target can be Freezing Trapped at a time.



Most of these changes are minor tooltip changes that won’t impact our gameplay at all. The only real changes here are:

So, the latest PTR update buffs our AOE a little bit and makes our pets have a bit less survivability. Fair trade? In general, pets aren’t having a tough time surviving so I don’t think the nerf to their self-healing will make a huge difference. And the buff to AOE is only welcome, more of that please. πŸ™‚

There were also several achievement changes, the ones that stood out the most were:

    Congrats! Unfortunately, as a Druid the only one that’s really useful for me is Val’anyr… and that’s not going to happen any time soon.

      Thanks guys!

      Well… tbh, Thunderfury is not very “useful” for a hunter. πŸ˜€

      I just got it because I could actually wield it. For you the equivalent would be Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros, which you can wield but doesn’t really come with good stats.

      But who cares about stats on these weapons, they’re just for show anyway. πŸ™‚

    Hey! Rio here, just going through the TNB Wiki list of blogs checking the Hunter section.

    Grats on Thunderfury, got it myself on Thursday! Our guild’s first legendary… madness!

    All the best, keep up the good work.

    Grats on the fancy letter opener!

    By the way, the Bloodthirsty change is just a tooltip clarification. It already currently applies a small 5-second HoT that ticks for 1% of your pet’s max health every second.

    My second binding dropped last night. πŸ™‚

    I had putting off going into BWL for the elementium because truthfully I figured it would be months before I got the second binding. It dropped in 3 kills I think.

    So I have a few weeks before I can turn in the quest, it all depends on my elementium luck.

    That is one very shiny sword.
