Sometimes simple is best and this holds true with this formidable axe. Perhaps considered unremarkable in the looks department by some this axe, in my eyes, has a simple elegance that cannot be contended with by other flashier models. Even though there is nothing significantly remarkable about this axe, no spinning parts or huge glow, it seems to still manage to look hungry for blood and it very well may be. Gorehowl is the legendary axe of Grom Hellscream, giving this weapon another check on the list of awesome and making it even more appealing to add to your Transmogrification collection.
Want to take up Grom Hellscream’s weapon as your very own? You will need to head into the depths of Karazhan and take on the final boss of the instance; Prince Malchezaar. Thankfully like most older world instances Karazhan is a breeze for a few level 85s with a little time on their hands to farm every week.
Looking more like a sword than the dagger it truly is on any character model, this weapon is a sight to see. It is not just the size of this weapon that is impressive however, with its spinning inner core, intriguing metal work, and it’s own glow, this dagger just looks good which is why it made my top 5. The Timeslicer has a similar model to this dagger, however, lacks the compelling glow and more distinctive blue coloring. Not to mention that the Timerslicer is an Off-Hand weapon while the Jaded Crystal Dagger is a Main Hand which is very important when it comes to Transmogrification.
Ready to wield this dagger as your own? You will have to enter Magisters’ Terrace on heroic mode. Don’t worry, this is a relatively easy task for any level 85 and can be done in just a few minutes. Not to mention that players will be able to try for the Jaded Crystal Dagger once a day, unlike longer raid lockouts making this Transmogrification item easy to get with a little luck.
In every instance there is at least one WoW weapon that upon looking at it players instantly know that it came from a particular instance. The Guiding Star is one such weapon. The best healing mace in its time, the Guiding Star epitomizes Ulduar, its instance of origin. From its plant like head, its rotating runes and even the coloring Blizzard has taken Ulduar, crushed it into a mace and manage to make one amazing looking weapon.
To own the Guiding Star as part of your Transmogrification gear, players must venture into Ulduar and face off with Razorscale. Traveling into Ulduar and reaching Razorscale is much easier than it used to be and a well equipped group of level 85s should be able to easily take down this boss on a weekly basis until the Guiding Star becomes yours.
