Do chance on hit such as the one shown on Black Dustwood Staff (at around 8:13) are worth it for a feral druid?
Hamsterwheel - Před 2 dny
no chance on hit doesnt count for bear or cat form

The Demon Slayer is very useful for a hunter during their quest getting the epic bow and staff from the ancient leaf

Mark of the dragon lord is awesome. On my pally I use it until the shield gets destroyed, then swap over to a different ring while it's on CD

If you put The Crystal of Zin Malor on pre-fight, dont you become immune to cc (cc that breaks from dmg like poly, roots,fear,charm) in pvp essentially? Might be of use in a similar fashion as skull of impending doom

You should have mentioned that demonslayer's attack power is equivalent to 99 strength of AP or 50 if you're a warrior

For those curious, because I was, the Annihilator armor debuff DOES stack with sunder. At least, according to some old wowhead comments.

So wait, you can't change gear in combat (besides weapons). Are trinkets exempt from that rule? If not, your point about the Crystal of Zin-Malor is entirely moot.

Fairly sure the suicide trinket is still useless since, iirc, you can't change trinkets in combat. Or can you? In which case I'm wrong
Hamsterwheel - Před 9 dny
you can as a hunter with feign death

The wildthorn mail is also a sleeper item for hunters who really want their serpent sting to really hurt
TheMalitias - Před 19 dny
wrong. Ravager does not proc windfury
Strawman - Před 19 dny
Annihilator underrated? its used in almost every raid run along with its sister axe
Microphunktv - Před 19 dny
Don'y play this since ulduar launch in wotlk.. just here to see if i used any of the underrated items with my hunter :D
edit : i used Ravager on Hunter :D (back in vanilla days im pretty sure it wasnt underrated)
Arcanerogue - Před 20 dny
Invulnerable mail
gavekorttilikea - Před 20 dny
The mention of the Mark of the dragon lord, gets me so fucking heated. Back in vanilla i had it drop on my priest and a rogue needed on it, won and said he just wanted to have an epic ring. Still so salty all these years later that i always need to rogue gear if i can.
Elthenar - Před 21 dnem
Everyone knew about the crescent staff. Also, the Mark of the Dragon Lord sucked. I had it on my priest, it was near impossible to keep the bubble.

How would you use Crystal of Zin'Malor in a raid?
Step 1: Notice Raid is about to Wipe
Step 2: Panic because you can't equip a trinket mid-fight
Step 3: ?????
Step 4: Useful for raids
Hamsterwheel - Před 19 dny
@NumNumEntrails Feign Death isn't a guarantee that you'll survive a raid boss though
NumNumEntrails - Před 20 dny
@Hamsterwheel why would a hunter kill himself? He can just lay in feign death and won't aggro the boss
MTS Gaming
MTS Gaming - Před 20 dny
Hamster keeps deleting my reply to him lol what a fucking joke of a youtuber...can't handle a single comment
Hamsterwheel - Před 23 dny
Why did you post this even though I explained in the video that this is a great trinket for hunters?
Bolen Arrow
Bolen Arrow - Před 24 dny
I mean think about it. Its a deal breaker.
Hamsterwheel - Před 24 dny
In the right situation, your comment would be a deal breaker! It's actually really good if you think about it, totally underrated!

Hey mate I just saw your video and u talked about some items that are good for specific classes while lvling.
But u did miss some very powerful items for mages from lvl 20-30.
I mean the "azure blue silk" gear which increases frost dmg and is kinda cheap to get as a tailor.
With this stuff u can get
+10frostdmg at lvl 23, lvl24 and lvl 30
+7 frostdmg at lvl 25
+13 frostdmg at lvl 33
Which makes an amount of 50frostdmg at lvl 33
Combined with that u can make an engeneerings head at engineering skill 225 which gives u 21 spell dmg overall, what pushes your additional spell dmg for frostspells to 71
My lvl 20 mage on classic retail already got that stuff, as well as boots with +13frostdmg able to wear at lvl 28, means he will have 84 additional spell dmg with frost spells at lvl 33.
Atm im looking for a belt and some bracers with frostdmg in the ah to be able to reach more than 100 dmg with frostspells before I hit lvl 35 :D
Hamsterwheel - Před 24 dny
Great points dude! Though the armory series you're talking is kinda revolved around weapons, hence why I didn't touch on stuff like azure silk or dreamweave items. They're great, but I'd like to stick to just weapons as going over all item slots would be a bit too ambitious and complex :)
gammelhund - Před 26 dny
You wouldn't be able to equip the trinket to kill yourself if your in combat in a wiping raid tho.

Can that suicide crystal be equipped while in combat?
holden - Před 29 dny
no. you cant swap trinkets in combat. a rogue or hunter could drop combat and equip it, but that's hardly useful.

Wow this click bait... none of these items are underrated, and pretty much staples to any serious player.

4:50 what do you mean terrible? stam is always good and spirit is good for leveling. also having a higher int makes you level your skills faster. which since this will probably be their first staff every little bit helps. 12:50 not bad for hunters either as arcane shot is, you guessed it, arcane damage.

annihilator not used on private servers? basically a req for fighting brutallus =\

This video might be good. But the first item you mention everybody else have talked about. So I'm leaving already after 1 min...

That Demonslayer two-hander would be pretty awesome for farming demons and the hunter class quest chain where you have to kill the 4 demons.

By the Way, Phantom Blade is one of the only Swords that you put on your back when sheathing (putting weapon away). Thats the reason i crafted it back in 2005 when i was 11 years old... cuz it looked cool sheated on the back instead of the sides haha
MoonfeatherWildkin - Před 2 měsíci
Real question, if Living Root drops during WC as a Warrior, shouldn't you just try to grab that and then take Wingblade (for your tanking set) instead of Crescent Staff? Living Root has higher dps than Crescent Staff and it has no int on it and much more spirit so it's seemingly far better for a warrior (who actually get a lot from spirit early on) than Crescent Staff.

@Hamsterwheel i live for finding underrated items like these! Guess there is no reason to play wow classic now

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.
Thomas Gilman

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

Honestly offended the luffa isn't here.
Donnerbalken - Před 3 měsíci
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.
RockWood Whalen
RockWood Whalen - Před 3 měsíci
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
Edrigangr - Před 3 měsíci
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 3 měsíci
+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 3 měsíci
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 3 měsíci
@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 3 měsíci
@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?>

Hamsterwheel - Před 3 měsíci
Is it a good warrior weapon though? Not trying to say you're wrong, just genuinely curious
jmortier88 - Před 3 měsíci
there was a point early on in wow history when literally EVERYONE was using phantom blades. they were like standard issue.
Robert Sides
Robert Sides - Před 9 dny
That and simply because of the way they were sheathed. No one gave a damned about the stats.
TheRed58Fury - Před 3 měsíci
Ravaged was one of my favorites back then super fun axe.
Matador Media
Matador Media - Před 3 měsíci
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.

Nerobyrne - Před 4 měsíci
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 4 měsíci
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
Deeze - Před 4 měsíci
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...
