WoW Classic – All Legendary Weapons Guide
All Legendary Weapons
There are three legendary weapons in Classic, all of which require a hefty amount of items from raids as well as crafting materials and tons of gold to complete.
The first one is Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros, the two-handed hammer wielded by the final boss of MC. It is arguable the worst legendary compared to the other two since the stats are comparable with Ashkandi from BWL, bosses in the T1 and T2 content are immune to the proc and the fact that two-handed weapons are not viable in PvE for any class. That being said the odds are good this item might go to a Paladin or Shaman or Warrior for PvP. To complete the item you will need ten Sulfuron Ingots from Golemagg (who drops at most one per raid), a couple of regular materials and cash and a blacksmith with the recipe to create the Sulfuron Hammer. Having that you will need the Eye of Sulfuras, an ultra-rare drop from Ragnaros, to form the hammer.
Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker might be the most famous legendary of all times in WoW history. It has an awesome lightning effect and is BiS for tanks even way into TBC content. What makes this weapon so strong is the proc that creates a kind of chain lightning and more importantly lowers the attack speed of the primary target by 20% that works on all bosses! To get this blade you will need two separate super rare bindings from Garr and Geddon in MC as well as 10 elementium ingots (drops from goblins in BWL, can drop multiple per raid), 100 arcanite bars, and a heap of cash. Who the weapon goes to is up to the guild or raid lead, but the main tank is usually the prime candidate.
Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian is the staff of Medivh the guardian, a very important figure in the Warcraft lore. It is by far the rarest item in WoW history because of how few people cleared Naxxramas on the official servers. To assemble the staff you will need 40 Splinters of Atiesh, that can drop from any boss in the first four wings in Naxxramas. After you have those you need quest items the final bosses of AQ40 and Naxxramas. The staff can be obtained by Druids, Priest, Warlocks, and Mages. If has a different glow effect and slightly different stats for each class. As a bonus, you can use it to create a portal to Karazhan, which is more of a gimik since that is a level 70 raid instance not in the game in Classic.
An honorable mention goes to Andonisus, Reaper of Souls, which can be used against the demon you have to kill for the final stage of the Atiesh quest chain. If you disarm the demon he will drop this sword and it can be used against him in the fight. The item will despawn after 10 minutes of after leaving the instance but is the hardest hitting one-handed melee weapon in the game by a mile.
Another honorable mention goes to the Talisman of Binding Shard, a legendary but stats wise undesirable amulet that dropped in MC before BWL was released. At that time T1 and T2 sets dropped in MC and this item could drop. It will not be available in WoW Classic since it was already removed from the loot table back in 2004. Why this item was actually in the game is one of the unsolved myths, some people believe it was originally intended as being part of the Thunderfury quest chain. Rumor has it only one person in the world ever obtained this item!
