A quick check on Wowhead shows that this is indeed the case.

Well, they were probably wondering where I've been at the ol' bar anyway.

Active raid character: ... an&n=Spyte
255 characters is not enough to fit my alts' armories in.

Just to clarify. I got it crafted for me a few weeks ago. The recipe can be crafted by any blacksmiths no matter your specialization. God bless old MC loot ninja's with cores laying around =)

Finally found someone on Eredar that could craft Nightfall, he had to rep up to exalted for a prot pally in his guild to have it so I was in luck too.

If you can't find anyone try posting in your realm forums, it worked for me.

Will try it in SSC this week on Lurker/Hydross(poison phase)/Kalithress/Leo/Vashj(Phase 1 + 3) and hopefully Al'ar Phase 1.

Anyone on Rexxar?

I've been trying to get guildies to make it, but the person we were working on has been having lots of connection issues and I fear he will not be back to make it. Plus, getting to exalted with TB is so difficult.

Anyone on Rexxar that can make this?

I have been slowly getting a Haste set together for use with Nightfall when not tanking. I generally find myself in a group with Wind Fury and let me tell you....alllll that haste plus WF and haste trinkets...its stays up A LOT. Many of our melee dps'ers have gone leatherworking for non stop Drums of Battle in that is pretty nice when stacked with everything +heroism, Meta gem etc.

Here is hoping Alliance gets SoB about the same time they nerf Nightfall.

so what do you recommend if there is no chance of getting nightfall (due to being on a server that started when naxx came out and therefore has nobody that has run any high end pre TBC raids though some guilds have 5 manned onyxia for fun). Would it be a case of getting a high white damage weapon and putting Major Striking or Savagery on it.

ps. Thankyou for a great site its has been invaluable to me in getting kara ready.

Organize a guild MC run ;) I just randomly said that we were doing MC at 2pm on Sat and like 20 people showed up to run around and have fun. Need one pally tank, a skinner and a miner (and some healers and dps of any flavor).

I'm up to 2.27 swing speed with Nightfall in my melee haste set (10 and some-odd percent), before trinkets and with SotC.

I'm wearing it now, got a few Terrace pieces the other day :) ... &n=Reiyuka

I love my nightfall but no raid group ive been in appreciates it at all lol.

I actually had mine crafted for FREE by a blacksmith and yes it requires you to go to the anvil in BRD so i was surprised!!! I tipped the guy and said thanks!

But im on a huge pve server so i dont count :( smaller servers may lack crafters try searching for PREBC blacksmiths..
