Corrupted Ashbringer

I just read an article entitled “Gear as Enemy” over at Troll Racials are Overpowered – Give it a read. In it Klepsacovic talks about how it would be an interesting addition to have gear work against you – similar to the ring in The Lord of the Rings.

I remember one item that actually does that in WOW – the Corrupted Ashbringer. One of the effects of the sword is the will of the ashbringer. This literally makes you darker in color (not as dark as shadowform) and makes you hostile to the Argent Dawn (as well as friendly with the Scarlet Crusade). It also starts a cut scene in the SM Cathedral. You can watch it on You Tube and I would recommend doing so.

What is disappointing is that this weapon is no longer available. It dropped from the original Naxx 40 man. And not from an easy boss either (not that there were easy bosses there) – it dropped from the four horsemen. Very few people saw Naxx at 60. Even less downed the horsemen. And it was a random drop so not many people at all had a chance to see this personally.

I’d love to see a few more items like this. This is one of the few items that was not re-hashed in some way when the remade Naxx for level 80.
