Dude, where’s our proc?!
Published January 5, 2010
So I’ve finally sat down to take a look at whats available on ICC and try and plan a course of action. Generally speaking, I tend to like to wait a bit before making gear choices to ensure I don’t make any rash decisions. Specifically, I was looking at weapon upgrades and something interesting struck me. I took a look at weapons available in ICC and noticed that quite a few of them have some interest bonus procs. I compiled a little loot list of all the weapons I found that have a proc.
2H Axe - Bryntroll, the Bone Arbiter Chance on hit: Steals 2138 to 2362 life from target enemy.
Caster Staff - Nibelung Equip: Your harmful spells have a chance to cause you to summon a Val’kyr to fight by your side for 30 sec.
Bow – Zod’s Repeating Longbow Equip: Your ranged attacks have a 4% chance to cause you to instantly attack with this weapon for 50% weapon damage.
Phys Dagger – Heartpierce Equip: Your melee weapon attacks have a chance to trigger Invigoration, granting you 2 energy, 1 rage, or 60 mana every 2 sec for 10 sec.
Fist Weapon – Black Bruise Equip: Your weapon swings have a chance to grant you Necrotic Touch for 10 sec, causing all your melee attacks to deal an additional 9% damage as shadow damage.
Spell Mace – Trauma Equip: Each time your spells heal a target you have a chance to cause the target of your heal to heal themselves and friends within 10 yards for 217 each sec for 6 sec.
Tank Mace – Last Word Equip: Your weapon swings have a chance to grant you Blessing of Light, increasing your strength by 100 and your healing received by up to 300 for 10 sec.
My first thought was…DUDE, WHERE’S OUR PROC?
I think almost every class and spec is covered in the above weapons but it seems feral druids have been left out? Granted we get an awesome trinket in Deathbringer’s Will but that is something that can be used by other classes as well so why don’t we deserve a kickass weapon with a proc? I’m still hoping that perhaps there are some items later on that have not yet been discovered that could correct this injustice but for now it seems we’ve been left procless
Then again, I’m not picky I’d kill for a 258 weapon. 12 weeks and counting, at this point I’m more likely to see a 264 weapon
