Guide to Sulfuras, the Extinguished Hand


Guide to Sulfuras, the Extinguished Hand or how to be respected among WoW vets.

If you are a part of a guild with people, who used to raid Molten Core and Blackwing’s Lair in Vanilla, you’ve probably heard that senile nagging about Burning Crusade killing the game, making the difficulty, the bosses wrong and that the sun used to be brighter and the grass greener. From going down the memory lane also suffered the legendaries. For the legendary weapons from Burning Crusade, The Twin Blades of Azzinoth and Thori’dal old-school players even came out with a name – crapolegendaries. So, you start asking yourself: why are the Vanilla legendaries are better? How are they more interesting? The deal is that Vanilla legendaries don’t drop from the bosses with a relatively high chance, like for instance, Kil'jaeden bow, they take a lot of time and effort to collect because there are a ton of reagents. In this guide, we will tell you what to collect and how.

First, we will talk about Sulfuras, the Extinguished Hand.


There is a very tricky way of getting this beater. You are going to have to spend a lot of hours in Molten core, to hold this Fire Lord’s weapon in your hands. Sulfuras is obtained directly from two reagents – Sulfuron Hammer and Eye of Sulfuras. The Eye is the most uninteresting component in said legendary. To get it you need to just kill the bosses of Molten Core, with help of Sulfuron Harbinger, summon the Fire Lord himself and wait for an orange ball to drop. Can’t say that it drops often, but not that rare either. The chance of drop is approximately 3%.Everything is much less prosaic with Sulfuron Hammer. It can turn into a real headache for a collector. Truth is, sometimes it’s easier to get the Hammer than the eye. Depends on your luck, really. Anyways, Sulfuron Hammer is crafted by lvl 300 blacksmiths using Plans: Sulfuron Hammer. However, the recipe is not laying there on the ground, you have to get it from Lokthos Darkbargainer for a Sulfuron Ingot. By weekly raids to Molten Core, the Sulfuron Ingot can be found once a month, from Golemagg the Incinerator.Got the Ingot already? Running to return it for the recipe? Don’t want to upset but, miser Lokthos is not going to trade it – you will have to up the reputation of his faction by doing the same three tedious quests. Next, you gonna have to collect Dark Iron Residue from Blackrock Depths for Gaining Acceptance quest. Now that you have improved your reputation to respect, it is time to get that much-anticipated recipe.


Here is where it gets interesting. Firstly, with the recipe, you won’t be given the blacksmithing profession. So you will have to take the profession and level it up all the way to level 300. Assuming you’ve dealt with it, these are the reagents you are going to need for crafting the hammer:· 2 x Star Ruby· 20 x Gold Bar· 10 x Truesilver BarAfter you learn how to Smelt Dark Iron, you need to come down to the bars above lava by the bridge in Molten Core and do the melting. This is the only place where you can get the Dark Iron bars.Now onto getting the Arcanite Bars. You can’t get Arcanite the way you usually get resources, it needs to be transmutated from 1 Thorium Bar and Arcane Crystal, so you gonna have to ask your fellow Alchemists or buy one from the auction.All that’s left is 8 Sulfuron Ingots. After doing some math, it's going to take around 8 months to farm them solo. Therefore you better use all of your alts, friends, and auction.After obtaining the last component you will probably run to the nearest anvil, but there …ooops. You can only craft the Sulfuron Hammer using the anvil in Blackrock Depths by Lord Incendius.You got the Sulfuron Hammer and obtained the Eye of Sulfuras? Congratulations, you are now a happy owner of Sulfuras, the Extinguished Hand. However, it’s useless in PvE and PvP, but what collector cares?



All of the components for Sulfuron Hammer, including the recipe and the hammer itself can be bought from the auction, but you gonna have to pay a considerable amount of gold, around 15k. So stock up gold and patience. Better yet, when you got both of that in the balance because collecting, melting, and forging everything on your own is far more interesting.Making a raiding party for Molten Core, tell everyone in advance that Ingots and Bars will go without rolls. Otherwise, if someone takes them from under your nose, this could significantly postpone the moment of acquiring the legendary weapon of the Fire Lord. You can even wonder why the hell people would go to Molten Core if they are not going to get those valuable items? The thing is that most people go there to get reagents for reputation, so there will be plenty of willing. Legionfarm thanks the author КувалдычЪ for allowing us to publish this awesome guide.
