Whilst many will approach the reintroduced rendition of World of Warcraft to focus on leveling and gaining as much Wow Classic gold as possible, there is any other motive. There are a number of WoW Classic items in the game that are not only high in value but also incredibly rare. With that in mind, here are 10 high-level items in the MMORPG title that have a lower drop rate.
This serves as the mount for the Deathcharger, dropped in Stratholme by Baron Rivendere. What makes it so rare is not only its frighteningly low drop rate of 0.02%, but it is also a very rare find for Alliance players. The reason for this is the fact that it is a skeletal horse, and is the only mount of this kind available for the faction.
Teebu’s Blazing Longsword
This is one of the more recognized WoW Classic items in the game, as it appeared on the cover art of the original title. It does have a decent enough drop rate for this list, ranging from 6-10%, dropping from the bosses you come across in the Ahn Qiraj event. However, when it comes from dropping the Molten Core and Blackwing Lair raids, you are looking at a rate of 0.05% instead.
The Hand of Edward the Odd
This best-in-slot World of Warcraft Classic item for the Shamans does have a very low drop rate of 0.01%, but there are a number of different ways in which you can get it. Several bosses will drop it, as will mobs despite how rare it is. However, if you want to increase those chances, then taking part in the Ahn Qiraj event and killing either Lieutenant General Nokhor or any of the other bosses here will increase your chances of up to 17%, which is a pretty big hike.
Swift Zulian Tiger
The Swift Zulian Tiger is basically the Horde equivalent of Deathcharger Reins. Thankfully, its drop rate is a bit higher than the alternative, dropping from High Priest Thekal with a 0.08% chance of you getting your hands on this kitty. So at least now you know what to do if you are a Horde playing wanting the only cat-like WoW Classic mount available to you.
Foror’s Compendium of Dragon Slaying
Looking for a super rare book? Out on a quest to create the blade known as Quel’Serrar to complement your tank? Then this is the World of Warcraft Classic item that you will be looking for. To find it, you need to head to Dire Maul, where you will find it’s a drop from every mob and boss you find there. However, it only has up to 0.03% chance of actually dropping, so you might be in it for the long haul in Dire Maul after all.
Piccolo of Flaming Fire
Your next stop for an upcoming couple of WoW Classic items will be Stratholme again. Firstly, we have the Piccolo of Flaming Fire and has a pretty high drop rate of 23%. The problem is that the NPC that drops it is actually a rare spawn itself. You will need to find the boss known as Hearthsinger Forresten, who can be found within a number of locations in between living and dead segments of the city. The ample difficulty in finding the boss itself is something that gives it a place on this list, and you aren’t really getting much from the Classic WoW item itself.
Also, in Stratholme is the Skullflame Shield, which may well be a rather common Classic WoW item in terms of the additional amount of locations it drops in, it still has a drop rate of 0.2%. The plus side is that it does mean that there are more locations for you to try and farm the WoW Classic item, which is dropped by mobs and bosses in both Dire Maul and Scholomance. If you happen to find creatures roaming in Winterspring and Azhara, then you can gain drops from them too.
Mature Blue Dragon Sinew
Gaining this mystical blue dragon can be a difficult task when trying to do so before others. In a quest beginning in Molten Core, your journey to the dragon comes from blue dragon mobs in Winterspring, with a drop rate maxing out at 0.6%.
The Eye of Shadow
If you are a Priest, then this will be of interest to you. As with the previous blue dragon we just mentioned, it made available as an epic Classic WoW item at the end of a quest. For this instance, you will receive the Staff of Benediction. You can also receive it from elites in Winterspring or the Blasted Lands, or by taking on Lord Kazzak. It has a high rate of dropping from Lord Kazzak, with an 85% chance of gaining it. Otherwise, there is a drop rate of up to 8% elsewhere.
This is highly considered to be one of the rarest Classic WoW items in the game. This is because it is only available in WoW Classic, and you would need to aid a Warlock to finish the Dreadsteed of Xoroth questline in order to obtain it. The drop comes from a boss in Dire Maul when you defeat it when opening up a portal to Xoroth.
So as you can see, there is a variety of different WoW Classic items for you to gain, despite their rarity. You may have to sink a fair amount of time to even find one off the list, but they all have their benefits, depending on your faction preference and gameplay style.
