    More Str Tanking Polearms incoming!

    Was browsing through the items added and found this gem in SoO loot table: http://ptr.wowdb.com/items/103968-5-...boss-11-loot-1

    Is this a gift from Blizzard? Perfect stats!

    And also it says the Polearm is a drop from the 11th Boss in the instance, meaning it won't be RNG to get it from a random boss like it is currently in ToT

    I like that blizzard is throwing us a bone, transmog wise. Some people like the polearm animations.

    Sweet, hope it's not too hard (read; random) to get like Bo'ris was.

    Polearms are always nice.

    But didn't they say something about being able to transmog regular melee 2h weapons into polearms?

    We don't believe in your Horde or your Alliance. We only believe in undeath.

    The rets are going to stampede you for that.

    god know how many weeks of ToT yet I've never even seen Bo-Ris
    plus I have done 2 runs on 25 man on my shaman, didn't show up either

    I'd say it doesn't exist if i didn't see every DK with it in shrine -.-

    Solid weapon for all DK specs. Don't have a transmog for it though, hope it looks good!

    I feel your pain done with ToT on my DK and it never dropped... still got a chance on my pally and warrior.

    On the good side this appears to be from a specific Boss 11, no sign of FL/ToT style shared weapon drops. Save those tokens

    Rumour has it (have yet to test it on the PTR myself) you'll be able to transmog polearms into your everyday two-handers in 5.4.

    I really hope they don't put our weapons on the final boss of the tier (who cares) or on random loot (haven't seen a single boris/greatsword drop ever. Not even coined)

    Now THATS the prefect weapon for Blood.
    Seriously i haven't managed to get one piece of 'tanking' weapon the whole duration of the tier ><
    My guild fo'sure ain't gonna bitch about it :P

    It is. This weapon will have ALL the DKs and rets fighting over it. The warriors will go for another weapon though.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    Idd BiS DK weapon nomather spec and same for Rets, but with the haste it gives i highly think that most guilds will give it to dps'ers before tanks^^ so be calm and wait patiently for it all DK tanks out there!
    Death Knights never fell to Arthas. We are the once to make him fall!

    Eh? Tank dps is important now, Blood DKs scale very well with weapon damage, and this is perfectly itemized for Blood DKs. I wouldn't say rets have priority.

    I'll admit I haven't looked into this too much and as such have no numbers to back this up, but I can almost assuredly say anyone giving the Polearm to a Blood DK over a DPS, even more so a Ret Paladin that scales extremely well with weapon damage, (assuming somewhat equal weapons on both) is someone that should not be responsible for loot distribution.

    There's a mastery/exp mace which is more oriented for a DK tank in 5.4.
