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.

      In addition to the dungeon rotation, we now have the item levels of rewards from Mythic+ and the weekly chest in Dragonflight Season 1.
      UPDATE: A newer article has been posted on the same subject. You can find it here.
      Item Level of Rewards from Mythic+ and the Great Vault in Dragonflight Season 1
      We assume loot will be capped at Mythic +10 until Mythic Vault of the Incarnates becomes available, but that's open to speculation because Ion talked about the possibility of all difficulties being available simultaneously. Here's the item level of loot from Mythic+ in Dragonflight Season 1.
      Difficulty Level End of Run Item Level Great Vault Item Level Mythic  382 None Mythic +2 382 399 Mythic +3 385 399 Mythic +4 389 399 Mythic +5 392 402 Mythic +6 392 402 Mythic +7 395 405 Mythic +8 399 408 Mythic +9 402 408 Mythic +10 405 412 Mythic +11 405 415 Mythic +12 408 418 Mythic +13 408 418 Mythic +14 412 421 Mythic +15 412 424

      End-of-dungeon and Great Vault rewards will scale up to Keystone Level 18 (up from 15) in Dragonflight Season 1.
      Item Level of Loot from the Weekly Chest and Mythic+ in Dragonflight Season 1
      Loot scales up to +18 (was +15). All raid difficulties will be available at the same time, so loot from the weekly chest will be uncapped.
      Difficulty Level End of Run Item Level Great Vault Item Level Mythic  372 None Mythic +2 376 382 Mythic +3 376 382 Mythic +4 379 385 Mythic +5 379 385 Mythic +6 382 389 Mythic +7 382 389 Mythic +8 385 392 Mythic +9 385 392 Mythic +10 389 395 Mythic +11 389 395 Mythic +12 392 398 Mythic +13 392 402 Mythic +14 395 405 Mythic +15 395 408 Mythic +16 398 411 Mythic +17 398 415 Mythic +18 402 418

      Blizzard has decreased the XP required to hit max level in the latest Dragonflight Beta Build 45969.
      The latest XP reduction targets the new 60-70 level range. Overall, we're seeing a 18.08% nerf; everything else remains unchanged as of Dragonflight Beta Build 45480.
      Total XP Required (Old): 3,540,580 Total XP Required (New): 2,900,330 Level XP Required in Beta Build 45480 XP Required in Beta Build 45969 60 170,680 194,815 61 205,795 214,540 62 242,940 234,805 63 282,165 255,610 64 323,515 276,945 65 367,035 298,820 66 412,775 321,235 67 460,785 344,185 68 511,105 367,675 69 563,785 391,700

      This week's Dragonflight Beta update reveals more information about the new Dragonflight Season 1 affix - Thundering!
      The new affix will be active in all +10 runs and above. It is themed after Raszageth, the final boss found within the Vaults of the Incarnates raid. It is very similar to Quaking.
      Thundering - While in combat, players are periodically caught in Raszageth's unending storm. As the storm passes, players discharge excess energy that can damage and stun allies.

      Mythic +0 dungeons and Raid Finder bosses no longer drop Rare Quality gear on the Beta. The seemingly visual change has been reverted to Epic Quality.
      In the previous build ,we reported about Mythic +0 dungeons and select Raid Finder bosses in the Vaults raid dropping Rare Quality gear.

      However, Blizzard has reverted the loot quality to its previous state and Mythic +0 dungeons as well as bosses on Raid Finder difficulty again drop Epic Quality gear.
