Wrath Of The Lich King Classic: 9 Most Powerful Items From Ulduar

Here are the most Powerful items from World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic’s Ulduar raid.

With the arrival of the eagerly anticipated phase 2 World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King Classic raid Ulduar come gear upgrades that your guildmates will be squabbling vehemently over. Due to the fact that Ulduar is the only raid that has ever included hard modes, it is undoubtedly one of the most distinctive raids in the entire history of World of Warcraft.

Players can engage these extremely severe boss difficulties during battles by taking specific actions, which unlocks unique loot tables that grant even better gear in the process. Players should take caution, though, as some of this stuff has in the past caused enough loot controversy to dissolve guilds. You can bet your bottom dollar that this will happen again.


Constellus is the second-best weapon that healing classes can obtain and the item that the majority of healers will be pursuing in the raid. It serves as a kind of lead-up to the raid’s ultimate guild-splitting item. However, as Algalon the Observer is the source of this mace’s drop, most guilds won’t even have an opportunity to obtain it until they have raided Ulduar for a number of weeks or even months.

Only until a guild has finished the hard modes for every keeper in the instance can they take on Algalon. Bosses like Freya, Thorim, Hodir, and Mimiron are included in this. Many guilds won’t even have a chance to fight Algalon and obtain this fantastic healing weapon for a very long time because some of these hard mode enemies present the hardest challenges in the entire instance.

Pharos Gloves

These gloves are yet another coveted item that Algalon the Observer will drop. These gloves will be highly sought after by caster DPS players due to their better item level, critical strike rating, haste, and spell power.

The gloves also have two gem sockets that you can use to give your character even more spellpower. Maybe these gloves wouldn’t be so hotly contested if they weren’t made of cloth. Holy Paladins don’t take cloth equipment as frequently as they did in Vanilla Classic, at least.

Voldrethar, Dark Blade Of Oblivion

Due to the difficulties of beating General Vezax on hard level, the greatest two-handed weapon in the phase, Voldrethar, will be much more fiercely contested than Betrayer of Humanity before it. Due to debuffs he applies to the raid that drastically restrict mana regeneration and physical damage delivered, Vezax is no pushover even in his ordinary form.

Voldrethar will thus drop far less than Betrayer as groups battle Vezax on hard difficulty to begin with. With an almost 200 damage output increase over the second best two-handed weapon, Stormrune Edge, this blade is far superior to any other weapon in the phase.

Starwatcher’s Bindings

Starwatcher’s Bindings is another another caster DPS drop from Algalon the Observer, but it will be so difficult to get that you’re better off utilizing Runed Orbs to make BoE (Bind on Equip) gear while you wait for your opportunity to receive this belt.

If you do manage to obtain this item, its superior item level, extremely high spellpower, and several socket slots will enable it to function far better than any other caster DPS belt you may wear. However, don’t hold your breath.

Solar Bindings

Despite the fact that both this item and Starwatcher’s Bindings are called “bindings,” Solar Bindings are actually a pair of bracers. These bracers are the best in slot for nearly every melee DPS, so that confusion is cleared up (thanks Blizzard).

You already know why they’ll be challenging to obtain because they, too, fall from Algalon the Observer. Sorry, Rogues, but even Warriors will engage in combat with you to obtain these priceless bracers.

Legguards Of Cunning Deception

It’s definitely a good idea to note that Warriors will also be competing for the best slot leather legs at this point since we’re talking about how they’re going to upset the Rogues. The Legguards of Cunning Deception are by far the finest legs for most melee DPS in phase 2 due to their absurdly high attack power, critical strike rating, and armor penetration.

Three gem socket slots are also included with these legguards in addition to everything else. What a huge amount of added value. Although these provide a decent socket boost, it is normally preferable to fill the gem sockets with attack power or Strength stones.

Starshard Edge

The greatest weapon for DPS casters in the phase is Starshard Edge, which can be dropped off of Mimiron hard mode. Both the spell power and hit rating on this weapon are extremely insane, freeing up hit rating requirements on the rest of your equipment.

However, as with other hard mode gear, don’t anticipate getting a crack at Starshard Edge for at least a few weeks. Due to the need for players to position themselves correctly during the fight, Mimiron is one of the hardest hard difficulty enemies. It’s even harder to perform effectively because location changes depending on who Mimiron targets with his powers.

Comet’s Trail

For melee DPS classes like Rogues and Death Knights, this is likely one of the greatest items in the entire raid tier. Given that Algalon the Observer drops it, it’s also probably the item that both classes fight over the most. Although it won’t assist Warriors as much as Rogues and Death Knights will, this is theoretically the best in-slot trinket for Warriors in this tier.

So that Rogues and Death Knights can use it, the majority of Warriors will be willing to pass it up. This item is impossible to defeat due to its absurdly high static attack power and the absurdly high haste the trinket’s activated function offers.

Val’anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings

Last but not least, Val’anyr is Ulduar’s definitive guild-breaking artifact. Like many legendaries before it, Val’anyr is not a boss-dropped item. Instead, it needs to be made by completing a quest and utilizing 30 Shattered Fragments of Val’anyr. On the 25 man difficulty, one of these Fragments has a 10% chance of dropping off each boss in Ulduar, and a 100% chance of dropping off Yogg-Saron, the final boss.

As a result, only one healer from each guild will be able to complete Val’anyr before the release of the following phase. Along with having stats that are unmatched by any other healing weapon, Val’anyr also has an amazing triggered effect that protects your target for 15% of the healing they just received. Not to mention the exquisite flavor text for the weapon. Obviously, it is understandable why this artifact has a reputation for shattering guilds.
