After 18 weeks and 35 rolls on the Grand Empress alone, it finally dropped! Hallelujah! I thought my luck might be changing when a dagger dropped from Amber-Shaper Un’sok (one I hadn’t seen before). I actually liked it better than my current main hand so I switched to it after the fight, even though it wasn’t gemmed or enchanted.

So when the Grand Empress died for the 18th time, I held my breath (as I always do) waiting for the roll. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the screen. I actually let out a little squeal….


Kri’tak, Imperial Scepter of the Swarm (check out that drop rate)

For the heck of it I hit the extra roll as well since I’m not really using the Elder Charms for much else these days, plus I keep maxing out on Charms so I was hoping for some loot to DE. Turns out it was gold which is the next best thing.

As soon as I stepped out of the raid, I switched my weapon for a second time, re-saved the set and unsheathed it. I wasted no time in enchanting it then flying to the vendor in Townlong Steppes since I was fairly close (getting pulled into the raid whilst in the middle of a fable battle).


I’m finally caught up to the Thunder King raid content – never having to set foot in the Heart of Fear again (at least for gear). I can’t tell you what a relief that is… :D

Does It Exist?

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’d know that I’ve been trying to get the mace – Kri’tak, Imperial Scepter of the Swarm from Grand Empress Shek’zeer in Heart of Fear. Having killed her again just yesterday, I was wondering how many times she’s fallen at my feet. According to my statistics tab, it’s 16 times so I’m beginning to think it doesn’t even exist any more. Well, that and the Love Rocket… and Darkmoon Eye.

Maybe my luck will change next week. I’d love to save my extra rolls for something else, especially with the patch coming… please.


I also seem to have the worst luck when it comes to farming things too, especially when I attempt to surprise people with gifts and created items; it never really comes to fruition due to RNG or just bad luck.

Yes, I know it’s the thought that counts but it’s not much consolation when half the time people don’t even realise the effort I put into things if there’s nothing tangible to show for it… but the few times it does, it means the world to me when I see it reflected in a post or comment.
