Fyr’alath – is introduced in World of Warcraft Dragonflight legendary two-handed axe, the first witnessed by players since World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. Obviously, this weapon now became a new top-tier and most wanted reward for Warriors, Paladins and Death Knights, repeating his predecessor – the mighty Shadowmourne. However, reaver from the Icecrown Citadel has not only the same weapon type but also a similar in-game appearance. Gamers noticed: both axes have a resembling look and on-use effects reminding each other. But how can some new item, despite its quality, be compared with the legend itself? In our topic we’ll sort this out and tell you at what cost you can get the Dreamrender.
Spikes on the edge and runes on the blade itself, not identical, but the similar handle, and design that come to the eye remind the “one and only”. But the color theme, how the edge bends and different pommel already gives us a hint – Fyr’alath is worth his quality.
World First Fyr’alath, the Dreamrender Owner
Despite the fact that it’s a recently added weapon, with not only a low drop rate but a tough questline for achieving his full power, Fyr’alath already found his first owner. The world’s first Dreamrender fell into the hands of the six-time champion of MDI, a member of the guild “Echo” – Meeres. The moment of triumph was captured on his Twitch live translation.
The blazing effect embracing his character shows the same power as the player’s hype about achieving the weapon. His emotions and gratitude to supporters Meeres also expressed in his socials.
Many players wonder, if the top guild officer and other members of Echo, the world champion and his friends, invested so much time and effort in obtaining Fyr’alath, how can casual players make a fiery axe of their own? Let’s talk about the required tasks on the path to achieving the legendary weapon. We will lead you step by step and the item you could still only imagine will become yours.
How to get Fyr’alath Legendary Axe?
The same as the axe from Icecrown Citadel, Fyr’alath the Dreamrender is obtainable after closing the latest and hardest raid of WoW Dragonflight – Amirdrassil, the Dream’s Hope and killing Fyrakk, the last boss. But this drop is not the final form of the legendary axe and we need to pump it up, so let’s see how to do it!
First, you need to kill Fyrakk and obtain our legendary placeholder axe. Item has a pretty low drop rate, so embrace yourself to a challenging part. You can boost your chances by having Embers of Fyr’alath. Greater loots from Fyrakk on all raid modes, Lesser – from all other bosses in Amirdrassil.
After getting a weaker version of the weapon, you begin a questline that allows you to achieve the final form of Dreamrender. In “The Shadowflame Axe” player accepts the task of traveling the Dragonflight locations in search of Shadowflame expert – Eadweard Dalyngrigge, who lives in Thaldraszsus.
Lead Archivist gives you a quest “Handling it” and here you need to enlist the support of your friends with listed professions: Enchanting, Leatherworking and Inscription. The quest has 3 shards that can be completed simultaneously.
In the first shard of the main quest gamers need to spot an elf in Ohn’ahran Plains. Shalasar Glimmerdusk lends you the task of farming 20 reagents, Radiant Flecks of Ash, using Ashen Dowsing Rod on epic weapon or armor that drops in Emerald Dream location.
Finishing this part awards players with Prototype Order Vellum. The subsequent quest “Handle it: Sophic Vellum” provides you with a scroll for characters with enchanting profession so now the one you choose is able to learn how to make Shalasar’s Sophic Vellum. Enchanter who used the scroll needs to accept your Crafting Order with Prototype recipe and listed materials:
After the previous task you should use the Sophic Vellum ability on your weapon. In “To the test: Concentrated Sophic Vellum” each try consumes 10 Awakened element units (random at this point) and fills the scale by 5%. Afterward, Attuned Sophic Vellum, a reward achieved by closing the enchantment line, comes to the player’s hands.
The second shard is named “Handling it: Symbiotic Glowspore Grip” and requires you to locate Erden, a centaur who also lives in Ohn’ahran Plains. Erden continues the questline with “Handling it: Shadowed Dreamleaf” and asks you to bring him 200 Shadowed Dreamleafs. Flowers are available when players participate in the Superbloom event in Emerald Dream.
Prototype Dreamleaf Grip is a reward for this part and the next in-line quest “Handle it: Dreamleaf Grip” provides you with a scroll that allows players with Leatherworking to learn how to make a grip for the weapon. You need to send a leatherworker Prototype recipe via a Crafting Order with listed materials:
Here comes the next part, “To the test: Symbiotic Glowspore Grip”, where you need to test your grip. Hold your weapon tight to conquer its power, but pay attention, it fights back. The process requires from the player either an Adaptive Cooling Salve that saves you from taking damage or just take a healer in a group. At the end of the scenario you obtain Attuned Glowspore Grip.
The third and last shard is named “Handle it: Rune of Shadowbinding”. You need to look for another expert – Lydiara Whisperfeather in Azure Span. She requests to farm 50 Taut Tethercoil by using the Tethercoil rune on rares in the Emerald Dream.
As you finish harvesting, you’ll get a Prototype Binding Rune, and the next-in-line task “Handle it: Shadowbinding Rune” provides you with another scroll, for the player with an inscription to learn Lydiara’s Binding Rune. Scheme is the same – take the inscriptor’s scroll and send him a Crafting Order with Prototype and listed materials:
The rune test includes the task of slaying Volcoross, Igira and Gnarlroot in Amirdrassil being under debuff of the Shadowbinding rune. This part awards you with an Attuned Rune of Shadowbinding.
The last part of the quest chain starts by meeting with one of the experts – Eadweard alongside Emberthal, one of the Scaleommanders of the dracthyr and Wrathion, The Black Prince in the Obsidian Throne. The next chapter is Aberrus scenario where you have to fight Echo of Fyrakk. Victory in the fight finally ascends you to the being of the glorious owner of Fyr’alath the Dreamrender.
Fyr’alath in-game Weapon Stats
Fyr’alath has the highest item level among available equipment in World of Warcraft: Dragonflight at the moment of release of the 10.2.0 patch – 492 ilvl. Stats of the legendary axe are so high, that it became incomparable to other weapons.
High damage per second is guaranteed with this weapon. Not only do the high stats represented by an axe do their thing, but the effect of combined Warrior’s charge ability and Blade Storm in pair with damage over time effect puts the axe in a positive light in both PvP and PvE encounters.
Fyr’alath the Dreamrender for the different game classes
Paladins, Warriors and Death Knights are perfect two-hand wielders not only because of in-game conditions but also because of their stylistics as mighty and menacing fighters. Speaking of style brings to mind transmogrification and themed sets for first of all Warriors in different personification. For Paladins, who are also known as righteous ones, fiery weapon visually complements their persona with new and old sets. But the best will be set from 3 season of Dragonflight for Death Knights you can get in raid finder difficulty and the PvP one.
Impact on classes Fyr’alath implements as a greater powerup, bringing in his abilities as prolongation of burst in Paladin’s rotation, another Blade Storm for Warriors and for DK’s, passive will be the best addition for his DoT’s.
Top stats and a perfect look make Fyr’alath the Dreamrender a dangerous beauty. Will it be the new Shadowmourne in its fame? Will it be the new core of transmogrification sets? Will it be remembered as the pinnacle of Warcraft design and best-in-slot for melee classes again or a disappointing feature of Dragonflight expansion? Well, you had time to see our opinion, now the time will accept yours and only time will reveal the answers.
