Twice Smitten

Smite was always one of my favourite bosses from vanilla. I used to love listening to his familiar dialogue in Deadmines and was always a bit sad to see him die each time. When I learnt about this special compass from Yorik Sharpeye – one of the Champion spawns in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, I was itching to get his novelty drop. Sadly, I was never able to see it in the beta and have tried to get it ever since.

Today, it happened. After countless kills, I finally saw the drop for Mr. Smite’s Brass Compass.

 Mr. Smite's Brass Compass

But before I used it, I had to go back to the place that started it all – Deadmines. Cool was lucky enough to get the item a while ago and he’s had a lot of fun using it in dungeons and raids. So what’s better than seeing one long-lost first mate? Seeing two of course.

Smite roar

When you first use the item, he’ll yell “You there! Check out that noise!” as you war stomp and turn into Smite. On occasion, he’ll also yell (in combat):

You land lubbers are tougher than I thought! I’ll have to improvise!
D’ah! Now you’re making me angry!
We’re under attack! Avast ye swabs! Repel the invaders!

As you can see, he can wield several different weapons (just like the original dungeon version). The item lasts 10mins with a 2 hr CD.

The good news is, it won’t break in combat (unless you’re a druid) and can mount with the illusion so have fun while it lasts.

  3. I don’t think I can kill Yorik Sharpeye. I’ve spent so much time pet battling next to him we’ve kind of become buddies, well, until someone swoops down and kills him next to me, lol!
