I am trying to farm the Vine-cracked junkbox for the dagger for my transmog set. I read a few comments on wowhead and it appears that literally every spot has been ruined thanks to a nerf in some way at some point in time. Where is a good place to farm either The Gloaming Blade or one dagger of the same effect. The effect being the black glow around it.
If you have patience, farm gold and keep an eye on the AH. All 4 of the daggers with that model+effect are exceedingly rare and very hard to farm efficiently. Be prepared to drop 10k+, but you could earn 10x that before the dagger would drop.
I think Malchazeen has a similar dark glow effect, but when I used it for transmog, the dark glow effect didn't completely override enchants ... it essentially combined or stacked them. I was not really pleased with the results since I was trying to get rid of Landslide at the time. I don't know if the Gloaming Blade completely overrides enchants or not.
Have they nerfed Isle of Thunder? I got my gloaming blade when I wasn't even farming boxes - I was doing the dailies that took you into the saurok area where you transformed... I just have a macro built into my cheap shots to pickpocket. All of those mobs - sauroks & trolls, used to have a chance to have a lockbox but I haven't been back there in a long time...
