We give it up to the Wonder Pally, who has been farming for A Certain Weapon pretty much weekly since the arrival of The Burning Crusade. Tonight he finally had his second set of Bindings drop from Garr in Molten Core and without any further ado he was off to Silithus with quest items in hand to claim his prize.

A very long time ago, before TBC, I remember someone claiming this blade. Back then it took forty people to wrest the item from the guy's dead hands, of course, and it was an event large enough to pull people across the entire World to see. Tonight it was the two of us and a boss with about 300,000 HP which took all of about 30 seconds. Despite all that it's still an Epic fight. I also wonder how many quests (apart from this chain) reward you with a Legendary that starts a quest:
Orange Quest Text in this context just makes me think 'Hell YEAH!', and I can only imagine what this must have been like to collect properly back in the day. Frankly this evening it couldn't have gone to a greater or more deserving bloke, plus it awards our Guild 20 points and our first Legendary of what (I hope) will be many as people still revisit the old content. With the new Caster Staff in 4.2 who knows, maybe we will get lucky with someone completing that as well.
After all, there's something about an Orange item that just says 'AWESOME!'
