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.

      The title maybe doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's a lot worse than it sounds. You may have seen the recent crazy turn speeds that created flightless brutosaur helicopters and similar, but now that particular console command is being used offensively.
      After sharing the console turn speed command earlier in a fun clip, Automaton17 came back with a followup as they noticed the command being used in PvP to mess with players' controls. While mind controlling a player you can actually adjust this variable (and only this one) to completely mess with their turn speed, making it either crazy high (so that any press makes them spin wildly), or making it 0 (so that they can't move with the keyboard at all). Now I can hear everyone yelling about keyboard turners already, but most people keep their default bindings for movement keys and occasionally presa their A and D keys, so it's still a pretty big deal.
      This sounds like one of those no-brainer suspension/ban causes, so I really wouldn't suggest trying this, at least not outside of a friendly duel to check out how it works and have some fun. This is quite literally editing someone else's WoW configuration while having control over their character, and while it may sound fun and entertaining, and "just" affects keyboard turners, there are still many new players that won't even understand what's happening nor how to fix it, and plenty of veterans might be confused too:
      Here's the original clip of the turn speed variable changes, we couldn't find any of it in PvP action:
      The full thread goes into why this one particular variable is editable while others aren't, as well as tips on how to fix it (a /reload or logout works or you can just use the /console turnspeed 180 command to reset it to default and If it keeps happening you can also just rebind your turn keys to strafe instead).
      Hopefully Blizzard can address this soon, as having other players edit any of your settings is just wrong, no matter how silly it looks.

      We have a really easy way to get any missing Legendary memories without having to do any of the related activities, but it may take a long time to get to it if you haven't been keeping up with your Covenant.
      You may have/most likely did miss this little detail in your Renown quartermaster's inventory, as he sells the Chronicle of Lost Memories item which will unlock a random not-already-learned legendary memory. This includes memories from raids, PvP, Torghast and any other activity or even reputation vendor (but you'll still need rep for that last one)!

      The catch is you need to have reinforced 4 permanent locations with your Covenant Anima Conductor. This requires you to have at least the rank 2 Conducor AND to have basically reinforced a location most days since Shadowlands launched, since you'll need 40 reinforced locations to get the 4 permanent ones needed, and each takes 24 hours to reset. For some players this means it'll take a while to gain access to this, but for some it'll be immediately available.

      You'll need the Grateful Offering currency you get from the reinforced anima location activities to buy a memory, but you should have plenty if you've done them at all (I have 100+ and haven't been doing a lot of them).
      As mentioned, an important caveat is that reputation-based memories still require you to have the needed rep in order to use them, so this unfortunately isn't a method of skipping certain grinds (like the Covenant faction reps, Avowed one etc).
      This was spotted by dack-janiels and might push you to continue your reinforcement efforts, but if you haven't been doing it much it's going to take you a long while to catch up.

      Here's an addon that lets you loot faster in WoW.
      It's called Speedy AutoLoot, and it makes you loot all items as fast as possible. It hides the default loot window for a seamless gameplay experience. We tested the addon out, and the speed difference is really noticeable, especially in Torghast, where you need to constantly loot Phantasma from mobs.

      You can type /sal in the game to toggle settings.
      Speedy AutoLoot Features
      The addon works with TSM Destroy. A command allows you to enable auto-loot on all characters. You can set a sound that plays when your inventory is full with the /sal set (SoundID) command, so if you do /sal set (3738125), the addon will play the sound files associated with "BUTTONS". You can pick SoundID (3571677) for "Mrraaazz!". You can download Speedy AutoLoot on CurseForge.

      Tired of seeing bots that you can't kill because you play with War Mode off? You can fool them by using toys!
      Not all heroes wear capes! Change1378 came up with a clever method of fooling bots on live servers. The idea is to figure out what spot on the ground they click on and drop toys on these spots to make bots interact with them.
      Hyper-Compressed Ocean works really well, according to the author, because it overrides most clicks. Other toys include infinite chests or any toy that makes you sit down like chairs.
      Here's how it all looks in action.

      Thekingofbeans42 followed the same method, and they were able to break the squad of farming bots.
