Relatively Easy to Get Ilevel 180 2-handed Sword (+ Pet and Achievement)

Recommended Posts

Update: as mentioned by Imallsoul, you can do the World Quest part in a raid group so you don't complete the WQ, in case you don't manage to do it the first time and you can get 3 ballista buffs from the WQ so you only need 3 mushrooms! Here's the full walkthrough:

The sword requires some preparation if you want to get it, but you should not have any issues if you follow these steps:

  • Buy 1 Strength of Blood Strength of Blood from Ta'tru at 51, 79 in Revendreth. The potion costs 30 crafting reagents that you must either collect or buy on the Auction House. Do note that the items required to purchase the potion change regularly.
  • Buy 1 Potion of Unusual Strength Potion of Unusual Strength from Au'larrynar at 54, 48 in Maldraxxus. The potion costs 1 gold.
  • Bind your Hearthstone Hearthstone to the Theater of Pain at 51, 30 in Maldraxxus.
  • Wait for the A Few Bumps Along the Way World Quest and complete it at 41, 50 in Maldraxxus to receive 2 stacks of Battle Hardened Battle Hardened (but optimally be in a raid and get 3 stacks and keep the WQ up for later use if you don't make it).
  • Collect 3 or 4 stacks of mushroom buffs (Edible Redcap Edible Redcap), depending on whether you have 3 or 2 stacks of Battle Hardened, at around 77, 57 in Maldraxxus.
  • Hearth back to the Theater of Pain.
  • Use Strength of Blood Strength of Blood and Potion of Unusual Strength Potion of Unusual Strength to pull out the sword at 51, 49 in Maldraxxus.
  • Now, you will receive Sorrowbane Sorrowbane.

__________________________________________________

We have an interesting 2-hander you can acquire in Maldraxxus, which not only comes with a pretty solid 180 item level (Mythic dungeon equivalent) but also gets you a pet and achievement as well! The sword itself isn't exactly a secret, but the way to get it is pretty convoluted, and if you're 60 and have unlocked all the zones it shouldn't take you more than 20 or so minutes to get it. The tooltip indicates an item level of 85, but it seems to scale with player level, and our own Impakt got his at 180 (there's a small chance it's actually based on your own item level, but that seems very unlikely).

The Sorrowbane Sorrowbane sword is in Maldraxxus' Theater of Pain (not inside the dungeon), and has a pretty cool test of strength/sword in the stone type thing going on, as it's stuck with Oonar's Arm. You'll need to get strong enough to lift it out, and that's where a LOT of going around and getting potions and mushrooms and more comes in.

The only RNG factor (if you've played the main campaign to the end) to this is a World Quest that needs to be up in order for you to get the sword (as well as the Oonar's Arm pet - which is actually much easier to get - and Harvester of Sorrow Harvester of Sorrow achievement) - A Few Bumps Along the Way is required.

If you're up for a little adventure and are max level, check your World Quests and if the bumps are there, go and get yourself a sword/achievement/pet! If you need more details, coordinates etc, head on over to Lazey's comment on Wowhead.

Just tried this. Your description is lackluster AF.... no exact pinpoints, *filtered*.... Just wasted my time on that.

This is an article informing you about the sword - it's not a guide to unlocking it.

      The Mythic+ dungeon pool will be updated with new dungeons and it's possible that the 8 Shadowlands dungeon teleports introduced in Patch 9.1 will no longer be obtainable when the season launches.
      Please keep in mind that Season 4 will not start with the release of Patch 9.2.5 and you still have more than enough time to earn the teleports!
      With the Mythic+ dungeon pool being updated in Shadowlands Season 4, it's possible that the original 8 dungeon teleports will no longer be obtainable when the new season starts. The teleports include:
      Keystone Hero: The Necrotic Wake - Complete The Necrotic Wake at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit.

      Tazavesh is on rotation in Season 4, so Keystone Hero: Tazavesh, the Veiled Market should still be available to players.
      Blizzard is also adding the following new dungeon teleports in Patch 9.2.5 for the dungeons added to the Mythic+ dungeon pool in Season 4:
      Keystone Hero: Grimrail Depot - Complete Grimrail Depot at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit.

      Blizzard released the Patch 9.2.5 Release Candidate this week and with no release date announced just yet, we're looking at how many days passed between all Shadowlands PTR Release Candidates, patch announcements, and releases.
      Thanks to MrGM for creating the handy table.
      Placeholder for tweet 1529087077517864960 Patch 9.2.0 Release Candidate was released on February 10, 2022. The patch date was announced on February 11, 2022, and the patch went live on February 22, 2022. Patch 9.1.5 RC went live on October 20, 2021. The patch date was announced 1 day later on October 21, 2021, and 12 days later, the patch was released on November 2, 2021. Patch 9.1.0 RC went live on June 18, 2021, the patch date was announced 2 days before on June 16, 2021, and went live on June 29, 2021. Patch 9.0.5 RC was released on March 1, 2021, and the release date was announced on March 4, 2021. The patch went live 5 days after on March 9, 2021. Patch 9.2.5 release date should be announced today, tomorrow or on Friday if the calculations are correct.

      Content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      Blizzard clearly stated that guilds will remain single-faction in Patch 9.2.5 in a blue post about cross-faction instances.
      (Source)
      Guilds will remain single-faction, and random matchmade activities like Heroic dungeons, Skirmishes, or Random Battlegrounds will all remain same-faction (both because there is less faction-driven pressure around random groups, and to avoid compromising the opt-in nature of the feature by randomly placing a queuing orc in a group with a night elf). However, content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to break the system and create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      The group went with a guild charter into Torghast and created a guild there. Probably any cross-faction content would work to replicate the bug. Players of the opposite faction were able to sign the guild charter it and when the guild was created, each player could invite players from their faction into the guild, meaning Alliance players could invite other Alliance players to join and vice-versa.

      We have another sign of just how close we are to 9.2.5 launching, as Martin Benjamins, a well known dataminer and Community Council member, has spotted that the patch has moved to the production hardware and software side of the PTR! With yesterday's build being labeled as a release candidate and the fact that the move to this side of the PTR usually marks 1 week before the actual launch, could we be seeing the patch as soon as next week?
       
      The big argument against this is we still haven't heard any official announcements from Blizzard on the release date, but usually with patches they do so with the Season ending soon posts, and considering Season 3 is NOT ending when patch 9.2.5 launches, this might be less of an issue. Official patch date announcements tend to come right around the first release candidate appearing so let's see if we hear anything official soon, but until then, there's a solid likelihood of 9.2.5 arriving a lot sooner than expected!

      Fishbones06 is back with more glyph options, this time some very angry and very polearm-y Warriors, and we paired that with one of their earlier works with blacksmith-themed elemental glyphs as well!
      Starting with the Warriors, we have some Alliance/Horde themed ones, with a banner linked to Rallying Cry and polearm + shield combo (which is a bit more of a transmog) on the Alliance side, and all the anger linked to Dragon Roar for Horde. (The image is animated, just click on it if it doesn't auto-start.)
      Then there's an older concept, with some blacksmith-themed Shaman elementals:

      Source.
      And finally, here are some comments from the glyph-maker:
      Exactly, I started making them because if you go to any wow forum, the community has list and list of ideas for Glyphs, but no visual representation.
      ...
      The thrust animation and the ready idle stance is real. The only thing I changed was the arm holding the polearm.
      ...
      I agree, the artist truly are the heroes. I'm just playing and changing the assets they've provided. On classes I dont play much, I rely on class forums on what they would want to see. My goal for this, is to just bring visual representation to these ideas and to push blizzard into consider them and to see the excitement from the community for something like this.
