    Yh.. but the saronite will most likely to be around 1.5k gold each so unless you have about 40k gold you'll have to farm them

    Still fairly easy. They will be available for badges(like everything is). Im sure a few guildies can help out with em too. It wont be so hard to get 25.

    It's simple as that. (I still don't claim it will happen that way)
    It won't happen that way. The temporary weapons from Tempest Keep were a part of the fight mechanic that you were required to utilize, and they didn't have sockets.

    Sexy axe.
    I wonder whether there'll be any limitations on being able to complete that quest other than the 25 primordial saronite. And well, killing the lich king obviously.

    Like, any rare drops from bosses, or a single item, whatnot.

    Otherwise you'll end up with all 6 2h wielders in the raid being able to get that item before long.
    Seems strange for a "legendary" item.

    It won't be hard for a guild to get 25 and give them to one person. It will be very hard for a person who isn't chosen by his guild to get 25.

    Sure, eventually we'll all be drowning in emblems with nothing to buy, but it will take at least a couple months into ICC, so that by the time even semi-casuals are able to amass enough Primordial Saronite to start the pre-Shadow's Edge quest, most serious guilds will have one or two Shadowmournes already.

    getting 40k gold in lich king is really hard

    Dude, you're lacking major imagination/creativity. Why is it impossible that you get a shadowmourne for the fight only..noone said something about sockets being in this temporary weapon (it will still be awesome, you know?).
    For that I just mentioned an idea how it could happen (because we know boub is always™ right ) you're pretty zealous to prove it wrong :P

    Seems a bunch of people are forgetting the 60 Shadowfrost shards that are needed. These will likely be legendary drops from the bosses, and thus another limiting factor in how many Shadowmournes there are. 25 Impure Saronite + acid from bosses only gets you Shadow's Edge.

    It should be noted that the quests where you imbue the axe with unholy/frost/blood seem to feature some special fight mechanics. Maybe hard modes, or maybe just doing something special.

    Re: Shadowmourne Preview, Comics

    You'll need more than the primordial saronite to get this weapon. Remember, there's a quest to retrieve parts of the shattered throne, which are found only on the Lich King's most powerful bosses. That said, you'll either have a very small chance to get those throne bits from normal modes, or you'll have a shot to get one from a hardmode. This thing won't be as easy to get as start quest -> quest -> bosses -> primordial saronite -> axe obtained, so you won't be seeing every 2h wielding dk/war/pal in every raiding guild running around with it. I expect this new legendary to be about the rarity of val'anyr, if not slightly rarer. I would expect this to take a lot longer to obtain than Val'anyr, though, what with the limited attempts, the shadowfrost shards and soul fragments required, and the gating that ICC will see. Don't expect to see even one of these for months after 3.3 has hit.

    available with emblems.. yes, but it will be about 15 emblems each so again.. 375 emblems, and if T10 is available through emblems then guilds will need members to buy T10 first most likely.

    Sindragosa is involved, and she's a part of the "final four before LK encounter". So it should take atleast one month before someone manage to make one.

    Well, aside having to kill the lich king himself n all.

    We'll probably not see many of these axes on the server before cata hits.

    First of all, the shadowfrost shards seem to be ordinary Quest Items. So it seems that everyone who has the quest can loot the shards from "the Lich King's most powerful servants" so in game speak most likely Icecrown Bosses. The shards are not BoP so its unlikely they are handled like Splinters of Atiesh or Fragments of Val'anyr.

    Second thing about "everyone wearing the axe" Only Warriors, Paladins and Death Knights can even get the starting quest to forge Shadowss Edge. So sorry to all the Shamans, Hunters etc.

    Re: Shadowmourne Preview, Comics

    The current recipes seem to require 5 primordial Saronite. So it doesn't seem like it will be that rare. I guess 25 will be farmed in couple of weeks, maybe even less if they add the badge -> PS conversion early on.
    I think this Axe will be much, much more common than warglaives or the hammer. But hey, every Arthasdkdk needs a legendary.

    25 primordial saronite... which is rare. OI.... as bad as val shards?
