[WoW] Artifact? Serious WTFage in here

OMG.

If this isn't a fake (ie: someone managed to produce this item on a hacked world server), then it's simply obscene.

Illidan's Glaive Thingies -> COMBO!

Just.. wow.

That's some level requirement there.

OMG, indeed. As Doc Awk points out, that's a helluva level req. Where did you come up with this?

A friend sent me the link. I am prodding him for more info now. I assumed he pulled it off a forum thread from forums.worldofwarcraft.com, but I don't know for certain.

And yeah, I saw the level req. I figure it's a submission from someone who's got a hacked world server up, and is randomly spawning items to see stuff.

Fake. That wouldn't even be in the game yet.

What is an orange item then if red is a artifact?

Yeah, I wouldn't think so either. It's insanely powerful. Any character equipped with that could basically destroy entire demon camps, single handedly (along with pretty much anything else, too).

I believe orange is Legendary. Artifact is higher, or something.

If someone did fake it then he did some insane amount of research for the lore of this weapon.

Hmmpth, within 2 expansion packs this will drop off of yard trash in some minor instance and people will not even both picking it up to vendor it.

Heh. How true. You, sir, are well versed in the ways of the EMM EMM OH ARE PEE GEE.

That's the thing - "Requires Level 70", no character could equip it, hence it wouldn't be in the game yet.

Orange is Legendary, and there are at least two legendary items in the game that I know of. One was gotten by Nurfed via a loophole that has now been closed, and the other is Hand of Sulfaras.

There was a blue post at one point that noted that items not available to characters but present in the MPQ file were always tagged with higher than current level caps, making them easy to find in the database. Or something.
