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.

You can also check out the following video by ZaFrostPet.


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.

      Reddit user givemeabreak432 has shared a photo of their friend's character from Legion who only has 1 mount in their collection and that happens to be Invincible. 
      Apparently, OP's friend didn't play since Legion, and as you can see in the screenshot, the Total Mount count says 1, so it's legit.

      The only question is how did the player get to Icecrown Citadel in the first place?
      There are several possibilities. First, Druids have access to Flight Form which eliminates the need for other mounts. There's also a special mount that you can rent if you couldn't afford flying in Wrath to reach places otherwise inaccessible. Finally, the player could have simply walked there.
      All in all, it's quite rare to see such unique mount collection, don't you think?

      You may have noticed the WoW servers currently not being available in all regions. Blizzard have said they're working on the issue, but we also got a more in-depth explanation from Tom Ellis, Senior Game Producer for the game. 

      Hopefully this is resolved soon, as this is prime time for a lot of players.

      It's time to look at week 3 in Amirdrassil, with the mid-tuning round still being pretty stable. This past week sat right in the middle of two tuning passes, with the bigger one coming tomorrow/Wednesday. There was still plenty to see despite the smaller tuning changes, as Assassination is still on top, but for how long? We're also taking a look at u.gg's rankings, as we combine their Heroic and Mythic stats to try to get a better picture as the highest difficulty still doesn't have quite enough data.
      Overall Damage 95th Percentile
      Assassination is getting better and better, with the minor fix to Envenom not having a negative effect at all. There are some nerfs coming with this week's tuning, but they probably won't change that much here. Down in the regular non-insane spec world Havoc and Demonology are still on top, but both Subtlety and Beast Mastery are VERY close behind, as the Rogue climbs a big 6 spots from the previous week. Arcane drops one to Sub, same as Enhancement to Balance, while Fury remains steady in 9th. Affliction jumps a giant 13 spots out of the bottom of the chart right into the end of the top 10, after it's buff in last week's tuning. Speaking of the bottom, Windwalker finds itself there, joined by the incorrectly calculated Augmentation (as it is far higher in reality) and some steeply falling Paladin action.

      95th percentile Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Overall Damage All Percentiles
      Arcane is doing a lot better here, actually rising 2 spots into 2nd (with the shorter and shorter fights benefiting it), as Demonology takes down Havoc in 3rd and Enhancement does the same to BM. Subtlety moves up here as well, 3 into 7th. Fury gets itself sandwiched between Balance and Unholy, another spot gained. Down at the bottom we see Marksmanship join in, to make it an all-green bottom 3.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Boss Only Damage All Percentiles
      The direct damage charts are stable as usual, as only Balance and Subtlety stir things up by pushing Demo down 2 spots, and we also see Shadow make a comeback, up 3 into 10th.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Overall Damage All Percentiles
      Arcane is using the very speedy nature of Normal to get really close to Assassination, and we should be seeing a new No.1 next week after the nerfs. Enhancement has caught on in the lower difficulty as well, moving up 5 into 4th.

      All percentiles Notmal data by Warcraft Logs.
      Overall Damage All Percentiles
      We're still not quite there when it comes to taking Mythic fully seriously, as we haven't even had the first set of big nerfs yet. However, there's still more and more data coming in so we may as well take a look anyway.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      U.GG DPS Rankings
      U.gg's rankings are based on actual DPS taken from Warcraft Logs data, focusing on the top players and span the past two weeks. This is the chart for Heroic and Mythic difficulties combined.
      We'll also be taking a look at u.gg's rankings, as combining Mythic and Heroic seems like a good mix for now (and you can check them out individually on their page as well). Assassination rules still even in the combo rankings, and its fellow Rogue is actually doing even better here. Feral makes it into the top 10 just below Fury, while Elemental is doing much worse than anywhere else, joining Marksmanship and the miscounted Augmentation at the bottom.
