Minipost: 2H caster mace? Haven't seen one since Molten Core!
I was doing LFR the other day and you always get the excited feeling when you roll and the die spin takes a little longer than normal because it means you're getting loot! So loot pops up and I'm all excited, wondering what it is... and it's a healing weapon!
I was surprised, I hadn't seen this weapon on the loot table. And it's because it's one of those drops that can drop off any boss but is pretty uncommon. It was Invocation of the Dawn.
2H mace? A healing 2H mace? Wow, I haven't had one of those since Molten Core! Which was when I had picked up Finkle's Lava Dredger.
Obviously there are other 2H healing items like staves which I have used for a while, but not 2H maces! Perhaps they brought them back for the monks to use?
It looks very monk-like if you are going for the asian look but it doesn't go with my transmog at all! Yes, yes very vain, I know.
I wasn't sure if I wanted to use it over my sha-touched weapon, but I saw hat they had heaped a lot of spellpower on it to make up for the loss of the 500 intellect gem. And with the addition of a socket in it using wrathion's thing, it doesn't look too shabby except that it has no spirit on it.
And wouldn't you know it, I had nothing in my bank for it. I USED to - but I threw it out in my spring clean because I thought when would I ever use a 2H mace again? It was Ironsoul, which is from Ulduar.
Fortunately it drops off the Flame Leviathan, the first boss in Ulduar so it is an easy boss to farm and it doesn't take long. So, I went in there this week and I was lucky and it dropped for me! Phew! Arvash came along so he could get Take Out Those Turrets.
So I transmogrified my weapon to Ironsoul and now I think it goes quite well with my current set - yay! And I do like the look of having a weapon on my back rather than sheathed at the waist. I love using 2H weapons :)
