Discombobulator Ray has to be the most underrated item in Vanilla WoW. This will debuff your enemy, distract them as they are turned into a leper gnome AND it will also dismount them instantly.

All items mentioned are trash and should be vendered. You must be extremely bored making this garbage.

14:00 Mirah's Song is awesome for tanks as well actually. It's easy as hell to get since it's from a quest, 1.8 attackspeed is nice and fast, agi+str is great for additional threat.

The funny thing is nearly all these items are in the bank of every 60 i have. I keep a silent fang, serenity, Ravager and shatterer on every class that can hold them, and i have a mark of the dragonlord on my mage when the healer didnt want it :P I get green whelp on every toon that can wear it, and i keep it in my bags, ready for world pvp. I ALWAYS carry the crystal to every raid. I collect all those strat drops. I also try to collect ironweave on my mage for aoe farming for boosting toons, because you can collect massive amounts of low level mobs while waiting for your buddy to tag them (aoe farming to level friends is a lot different than solo, you really end up having to tank more because your friend needs to tag mobs while also avoiding death). Combined with uther's strength, and you end up shielding constantly during pulls.

Some other points are the enchants/enhancements. Always get a weapon chain on shatterer so that you can use vs a rogue and he cannot disarm you, and/or linkens boomerang will not work on you.
Get the Dancing Sliver from the Scholo Dawns Gambit Chain boss. Add spirit enchant for the most massive spirit you can get on a weapon, and use for evocating, receiving innervates, eating and drinking, etc. Viable on melee classes for recovery as long as your weapon is not stamina heavy(49 spirit total)
Alliance can add fiery burst enchantment from badlands chain to ravager, giving it a chance on hit to deal aoe fire damage. Otherwise, lifestealer is a good choice for low level farming because you will draw as much life as is needed to live, or crusader! Owning multiple can help you test.
A Cloak of warding/redoubt cloak/stoneshield cloak with an armour enchant can be a huge armour boost for a caster if you expect to need it, such as aoe work (its all in survivng the pull...)
Demonforged Breastplate with an absoprtion enchant make for an excellent way for paladins and warriors to carry easy dungeons and regain.absorb a huge amount of damage from the mass of weak hits taken. combined with uthers strength and a skullflame, a 60 paladin can mow through mid level dungeons for friends (uldaman is a commonly purchased run, and can drop Pendulum of Doom)
Nagelring on a mage allows you to farm public areas competitively against your own faction. The mobs you gather will take 3 arcane damage, tagging them to you even while mounted. Alternatively, use Crystal Spire or god forbid, essence of the pure flame.
Green whelp armour is bis for 39- twink druid healer.

Crystal of Zin-Malor can apparently be used to kill yourself mid flightpath also, which might let you teleport to GYs that otherwise would take more time to reach

Can't have Green Whelp Armor here and not mention tailoring Spider Belt, though not sure if this falls into the "underrated" category...
A lot of Engineering stuff was underrated, grenades, net-o-matics, goblin mortar, death rays etc
It was quite a lot of fun for me, especially as a warrior when people didn't know that Enrage/Death Wish/Recklessness affected a LOT of single target or AoE damaging trinkets.

Rule n1 for sword rogue: Always a SLOW weapon on main hand, FAST weapon on offhand. The silencing sword is really bad for rogues.
Hitmanhitman21 - Před 21 dnem
+3% Strength isn't worth it for a lvl 60 Hunter raiding... especially since it has no actual raids stats, if it isn't obvious enough; Raiders also go for lvl 55+ for Raids, not lowbie World Drops for leveling
Hitmanhitman21 - Před 17 dny
Most people used crafted items, so they wouldn't have to compete w/the plethora of Rogues, Hunters and/or Warriors goin for the same weapons. Enhancement Shaman were pretty rare then, so there weren't a lot them lookin for melee damage based weapons. The guaranteed crafted weapons were a big go-to, along w/World Drops in the Auction House, but those were obviously expensive. Many Gold buyers went for items that were BoE from Raids, too.
Hitmanhitman21 - Před 18 dny
@Goobermint Str. isn't a stat for Hunters, period.. so that's just helpin out what I've already stated, repeatedly. Anything w/agility, such as DW many common daggers and/or 1-h axes.
Goobermint - Před 18 dny
@Hitmanhitman21 ITS FOR HUNTERS. they dont use melee hits so its just the stats... like i said. do you know of some other weapons with better stats?>

Is it a good warrior weapon though? Not trying to say you're wrong, just genuinely curious
jmortier88 - Před 23 dny
there was a point early on in wow history when literally EVERYONE was using phantom blades. they were like standard issue.
TheRed58Fury - Před 26 dny
Ravaged was one of my favorites back then super fun axe.
Matador - Před 26 dny
I used the Ravager from 40 all the way to 60. I actually still have it in my bank on my original Warrior. Favorite weapon ever.

Wow. All the nice items people wanted in Vanilla. Underrated my ass.

Traumglanz It’s not that serious, calm down 😂😂
Nerobyrne - Před 29 dny
okay but how can you equip the zin-malor crystal in combat?
You're hardly going to equip it BEFORE combat and say "well we are gonna wipe so I will just death out early."
I suppose if you are a hunter you could feign death.
Also the Clutch of Foresight is the ONLY item in the game which can be used to increase threat, outside of the enchant for gloves. Kinda sad because I was hoping there were slightly easier ways to boost threat than a unique boss dropped consumable from Strat.

Lastly, I would like to say that I always keep a Demonslayer enchanted with Demonslaying in my inventory, especially on a Paladin.
It's not that great as a standard weapon, but boy does it feel good to draw my old, trusty friend when the minions of the Burning Legion show their faces.
Also great for farming Felcloth.
Hamsterwheel - Před 29 dny
Rogues and hunters can use it in combination with feign death or vanish. Also Demonslayer + demonslaying enchant is indeed a great combo for...well, slaying demons

jesus, can we all just quit making videos for the sake of making videos? really...you are not very informed and that disqualifies you to make informative videos about classic. this is so annoying! annihilator is NOT underrated, infact everyone knows about it and it's beeing used by all the guilds. same thing with mirah's song, 95% of fury warriors and rogues will have this in their prebis list and is not in any way underrated. and then those things in the end....you don't even believe in what you say... if you did you wouldn't keep repeating: "i mean, think about it." the goal of making youtube content should be to share actual knowledge...

I wish they explored staves as melee weapons a little more.

Its worth noting that the Horned viking helmet can only be acquired by horde because the npc that drops it is a friendly npc for the alliance.

Why would you use the Crystal of Zin-Malor to kill yourself? Only hunters can swap trinkets because of FD because it puts them out of combat..well,you dont pay the repair bill anyway (maybe rogues too?).
Hamsterwheel - Před měsícem
FD or Vanish is in some cases not a guarantee you'll survive a boss fight.
ZonZorZerx - Před měsícem
Just a bait video. It's not underrated in Classic because Classic isn't released yet. It wasn't underrated in Vanilla either. Only clueless people who didn't really play Vanilla would call these underrated. The reasoning for Mirah's Song being underrated didn't make any sense.
Hamsterwheel - Před měsícem
@ZonZorZerx "Because everyone who knows a bit about vanilla does'. Dude you can't be more pompous and condescending, this is neckbeard levels of e-peen measuring.
ZonZorZerx - Před měsícem
@Hamsterwheel Because everyone who knows a bit about Vanilla does, just look at the comments section. Many of these items were the most common of knowledge and still are. Don't be ridiculous. It's a click bait title and you know it.
Hamsterwheel - Před měsícem
Because...you say so? Look at most of the people in the comment section, they clearly agree with a lot of these items being underrated.
CapOfXav - Před měsícem
But.. you can't equip trinkets mid fight against a raid boss..
Hamsterwheel - Před měsícem
You can if you're a rogue or a hunter

Be me - Lvl 30 Tauren Shaman. Crecent staff+Wind fury+Robes of Arugal. Literally 1 shotting alliance players in WSG with a WF proc.

A highly underrated item that is essential for frost mage farming builds is Uthers strength. That thing will save your life once an hour while farming if not more

It's funny because these 'small' protective items are often more useful for casters.

An interesting thing about the staff for a warrior is the spirit helps with needing to sit down eat after each enemy. Also, I've heard that intellect increases the rate at which you consume food and drink in vanilla. so there is another benefit for when you do need to eat to get health back.
WerrKcz - Před měsícem
lol this is the thing to brag ? kill hunter in vanille you are wretch :D because the hunter is unable to fight close up // rogue lvl 40 45 kills hunter lvl 60 as nothing - killing hantrum on vanilla is for wretch :D

isn't mirah's song pre-raid BIS for rogues and fury warriors? i mean, 99% of all rogues and warriors on private servers get that sword as soon as they possibly can :P not really underrated i'd say, and definitely not unknown :P
Flaxe - Před měsícem
Good collection, though there are two significant errors in this list, that I'd like to correct in anticipation of WoW Classic launch:
Annihilator - The truth is the opposite. It was one significantly subpar weapon to bring to progression raiding in Classic. This because of buff/debuff mechanics worked differently from private servers. In Classic, debuffs of the same "type" did not stack, but were overwritten by the strongest debuff. Thus, the proc on this weapon would get overwritten by a sunder armor, which would prevent any additional stacks of Annihilator to apply. Effectively rendering the proc useless, resulting in something I wouldn't even call mediocre, due to it being main hand, fast attack speed and having no additional stats.
Crystal of Zin-Malor - While the theory presented is good, it fails when being applied in reality. Since the item equips into the trinket slot, it cannot be equipped in combat. While abilities such as Vanish and Feign Death dropped threat, they didn't take the players out of combat in PvE.
MoonfeatherWildkin - Před měsícem
Also worth noting Crystal of zin-malor would be busted in pvp if you could swap to it in combat lol. Saving durability would only be a minor benefit compared to CC denial that it would provide.

How can you equip that trinket whilst fighting a boss? I thought you can't equip any items in battle
Ethan Michell
Ethan Michell - Před měsícem
That's right. I did not understand. Perhaps it is used whilst a wipe is evident.
Potapes - Před měsícem
On private servers Annihilator usually delete tanks sunder armor or similar effect. Or atleast that was the thing 8 years ago.
Kratatch - Před měsícem
Cant switch trinkets in a fight so... the orb is not really that great.
Hamsterwheel - Před měsícem
@Kratatch They do, vanish or FD is not a guarantee you'll survive a boss fight
Kratatch - Před měsícem
@Hamsterwheel But they dont need it. FD and Vanish takes them out of combat.
Hamsterwheel - Před měsícem
Hunters and rogues can
Samochan - Před měsícem
Zin-Malor is basically poor man's sacrificial dagger. I miss that thing lol.
Renaud Botton
Renaud Botton - Před měsícem
You can't equip a trinket during a fight though so it's basically useless during a wipe.

I had Ravager on my shaman and was not a fan of the effect at all. If I ever got a wf proc off bladestorm, I didn't notice it. It felt much more like a debuff most of the time.

Silent fang is a main hand which utterly destroy your Abilities (hemo/ sinister strike)
Traumglanz - Před 29 dny
It is a ok tank weapon. I kept basically forever, because the silence proc could be pretty useful in some pulls, even when you used mostly other weapons for more rage and stats.

You aren't taking into consideration some of these debuffs to put on bosses will knock off better debuffs. Be careful what you do with these procs. Yes you can knock off better debuffs
