Atropos – The Arbiter

Atropos lucked out big time last week picking up one of my ICC lust objects, Bryntoll, the Bone Arbiter from Lord Marrowgar in 25-man ICC.  It has a unique graphic shared only by the heroic version and the weapon model used by the said Boss; and it matches my armor!  I am a big fan of flavor gear and weapons so this was a real treat. It’s also among the BIS for Unholy DKs.  I love how a life draining weapon fits so well with the Death knight theme.  The stats are:

I am one of those players whose bank is stuffed with RP items like the various dresses from all the festivals and random RP items like elder moonstones and Halloween wands clutter up my bags.  I think as long as its not too much of a DPS lost, I would prefer to have a cool weapon with a proc/effect than one without.  Atropos started out life as a bank and has several nice items used just for role playing and looking good at the bank.  Examples of which are the Ruby Shades and the Robes of Insight for that sultry Princess Leia slave girl look!  Its one of those things I will probably never delete.
