The 10 Best Weapons in WoW TBC Classic



Which are the best weapons in WoW TBC Classic?

Happy TBC release, everyone.

To celebrate the historic moment in WoW’s history when The Burning Crusade was released to the public on its own server, we’ll be going over the top ten weapons available in expansion.

Note that these weapons will be limited to TBC’s update, and weapons that are classic exclusives won’t be mentioned.


The Best Weapons in WoW TBC Classic

These weapons are listed based on a somewhat arbitrary calculation of their usefulness and power in-game.

What might be your favorite weapon for a certain situation may be ranked lower than what you wanted, but what can’t be denied is that these ten weapons, collectively, make up the ultimate armory available in TBC.

Let’s get stuck in.


10. Hammer of Naaru

Should the Shaman or the Paladin get it?

An age-old question. What’s not up for discussion is the borderline op healing and DPS power The Hammer of Naaru gives to its wearer.

With the introduction of the socket system in TBC (which grants bonuses to weapons much in the same way you can get from enchanting), this two-handed mace comes with some serious benefits.

Firstly, 120 DPS is nothing to scoff at.

But of course, the +44, +41, and +37 bonuses to your character’s strength, stamina, and intellect, respectively, is the main meat of this weapon’s attraction, with additional benefits coming after you’ve geared out its sockets.

With TBC’s buffs to the Paladin’s ability to function as a proper tank, it’s worth considering giving this to your best Pally guild buddy so he can dish out solid AOE party heals and revives to protect from wipes.

But for you hyper-efficient raiders, the buffs given out by shamans with this weapon are absolutely wild, and should be considered for their meta-defining party benefits.

All of this is assuming you don’t just want it to have a gorgeous purple hammer to walk around with. Good luck grinding High King Maulger for this beauty.


9. Golden Bow of Quel’Thalas
Top 10 Best Weapons in WoW TBC Classic

“Hunter wep.”

So, we’re finally moving away from classic bows and towards TBC’s offerings.

The Golden Bow of Quel’Thalas is a 97 DPS weapon with +18 agility bonus and the following equip bonuses:

  • 1. Your attacks ignore 175 of your opponent’s armor.
  • 2. Increases attack power by 34
  • 3. This is actually a hunter wep.

As the totally real third equip bonus states, this is actually a hunter only weapon, and one of our favorite looking bows in the entire game. The lore-privy of you would have noticed that this bow is originally from Quel’Thalas, the Horde-sided Blood Elves’ homeland, and serves as an important piece of lore content, especially for The Burning Crusade, in particular.

You can grind this iconic slinger out at Sunwell Plateau by slaying Grand Warlock Alythess and Lady Sacrolash. But, seriously, give this to a hunter, please.


8. Gladiator’s War Staff
Top 10 Best Weapons in WoW TBC Classic - Gladiator Staff

What’s up, druids?

Considering the sad fact that we don’t know when we’ll be able to buy items from arena vendors, this incredible item isn’t necessarily going to be available to act as BiS pre-raid gear for the healies. All the same, it’s worth taking a look at, if for no other reason than to water the mouths of all those who want to be the top healer in any given raid.

Gladiator’s War Staff is a two handed… well, staff, that applies 68.5 damage-per-second and comes with some pretty insane equip effects. But first, the passive buffs; +48 stamina, +35 intellect. There are no sockets available on the War Staff (sorry).

The equip effects are as follows;

  • 1. Improves spell hit rating by 21 (1.66% @ L70).
  • 2. Improves spell critical strike rating by 36 (1.63% @ L70).
  • 3. Improves your resilience rating by 25 (0.00% @ L70).
  • 4. Increases damage and healing done by magical spells and effects by up to 199.

To be quite honest, this weapon is absolutely insane. And given the news about not needing an arena rating to get rewards from previous seasons, it’s likely most players who want this item are going to be able to get it without much fuss, if a ‘little’ grinding.

It’s insane healies to escape your feelies, after tax, of course. The cost of the War Staff will be 3750 Arena Points.


7. Apolyon, The Soul-Render
Top 10 Best Weapons in WoW TBC Classic - Apolyon, the Soul-Render

148 points of pure DPS with a 3.4 speed that causes some issues with certain classes and builds, but honestly shouldn’t be dismissed by almost anyone.

If you can swing this weapon, you’re going to benefit from having it, end of story. Something to look at is definitely the Tauren +5% passive stam increase, as this two hander gives out a +75 stamina bonus before having its three red sockets filled, which give +6 stamina each.

The equip effects are as follows;

  • 1. Improves critical strike rating by 42 (1.90% @ L70).
  • 2. Improves haste rating by 32 (2.03% @ L70).
  • 3. Increases attack power by 126.

So, you’ll notice some things immediately. First, this weapon is simply one of the best two handers in TBC, but also leaves a lot to be desired, somehow. The attack power increase is objectively nuts, yet would be slicker if replaced with some str. Instead.

I know, I know, I can’t have everything, right? This thing absolutely destroys anything classic could try to compare with it, as you’d expect.

Just thought it was worth mentioning that you’ll be feeling a bit down being so powerful without much room for itemization given the some-what bottleneck nature this weapon possesses.

You can snag it from the murder of Kil’jaeden in Sunwell Plateau. Obviously, a late game weapon that most of you won’t ever have. Sorry. Still, a pretty thing to look at as it wildly swings rapidly at everything in sight.


6. Staff of Immaculate Recovery
Top 10 Best Weapons in WoW TBC Classic -

“It’s like wielding a priest on a stick” -Some guy, definitely.

Staff of Immaculate Recovery is the optimal healer’s dream. The dps is around 70, so whatever, right? The passive stat increases are; +73 Stamina, +51 Intellect, and +35 Spirit. Already, we’re working with some insane buffs. To compliment this to the Nth degree, we have the equip bonuses;

  • 1. Increases healing done by up to 443 and damage done by up to 148 for all magical spells and effects.
  • 2. Restores 14 mana per 5 sec.

Staying true to its name, isn’t it? This staff is the ultimate weapon not just for dishing out heals and restoring other people’s health, but also restoring your own resources. The passive 14 mana per 5 seconds and +35 spirit mean that this weapon not only boosts heals to disgusting degrees, but also helps to keep you (or your healer) throwing out their spells often with little to no downtime. Priests and druids rejoice!

This weapon is the unofficial ‘bonus’ piece to the priest tier 5 set, and is dropped by Gurtogg Bloodboil in the Black Temple raid. Good luck!


5. Stormherald
Top 10 Best Weapons in WoW TBC Classic - Stormherald

Take our Apolyon friend above and make him worse in PvE but slightly better in PvP, and you get Stormherald.

This thing requires the master blacksmith title to create AND wield (you can’t abandon the profession after creating the Stormherald), meaning it’s far more expensive to wield than just having its required reagents (Deep thunder + 5 nether vortex, btw, very expensive when factoring in all the reagents for the weapons that come before it.)

The cost goes beyond just 300 gold, in short. Holding that profession continuously just for one weapon might present an annoyance some players might not want to put up with. All the same, if the only thing this weapon hurts you on is gold, we can help you out.

Aside from its incredible +42 Strength, +42 Agility, +61 Stamina bonuses, It also comes with a passive chance to stun any target it smacks for 4 seconds. Perfect for those clutch PvP moments. And, honestly, it doesn’t look bad on someone who likes to roleplay as a big ol’ *bonk* warrior.

Seeing someone get clapped with this thing is hilarious when you see that’s its the size of a character model.

Happy smackin’.


4. Sunflare

A dagger fit for mages, Sunflare embodies that classic look of top tier WoW weaponry with its intricate design being completely engulfed by a messy orange flame. The passive stat benefits are as follows; +17 stamina, +20 intellect, with no room for socket reinforcement.

The equip bonuses are;

  • 1. Improves spell critical strike rating by 30(1.36% @ L70).
  • 2. Improves spell haste rating by 23 (1.46% @ L70).

Basically, you want to use this weapon when pairing it with another item of significant value, such as the Heart of the Pit to gain something from the fact that its one handed.

If you can’t do that, you’re more likely going to want to use something like Staff of torrents, which doesn’t require a pairing object and gains all of its use as soon as you socket it out.

If you’ve got the off hand items to group with it, which you probably do at this point of your accounts journey, then you’ll want to go and murder Kil’jaeden in Sunwell Plateau. You’ll likely be spending a lot of your TBC journey here, so get comfy!


3. Thori’dal, the Stars’ Fury

“Hunter wep.” the sequel.

162 DPS and 59 armor of pure power creep right here, lads. Thoridal, the Stars’ Fury is undeniably something that puts this list of weapons to shame. And not just because you can smack an enemy from range with it. This special bow is identifiable from a mile away with its murky mysterious design, and features a modest +17 agility buff to its wearer.

The true meat is in the equip bonuses;

  • 1. Improves critical strike rating by 16 (0.72% @ L70).
  • 2. Increases attack power by 34.
  • 3. Your attacks ignore 112 of your opponent’s armor.
  • 4. Increases ranged attack speed by 15%. Does not stack with quiver or ammo pouch haste effects.
  • 5. Thori’dal generates magical arrows when the bow string is drawn. Does not use ammo.

Now, look, I’m not going to pretend that not needing to use ammo is that big of a deal for someone at this stage of the game, but also, it’s a pretty big deal and is probably the most satisfying thing for any hunter to obtain on their character. It’s the first time in WoW’s history (for the second time, now) that a ranged weapon can be used without the need for a quiver or bags of bullets. Wowie zowie.

Bag space and peace of mind, that’s what Thori’dal offers. (Also, It’s the most powerful bow in TBC’s era, but whatever.) Guess where you can farm this beast: Sunwell! Have fun!


2. Dragonmaw

The second of the ‘upgradable’ weapons on this list, Dragonmaw serves as a weapon you can build your account with while keeping your main hand weapon in mind as a goal. Farming the mats early on is your only real challenge.

After obtaining the vortex mats and mastersmith rank required to obtain dragonmaw? You get a 90 DPS weapon with a +9 stamina bonus. Additionally, this weapon has an on-hit chance to increase your haste rating by 212 for 10 seconds, which is absolutely god-like for warriors who want to spam those fury spells (which are affected by weapon speed.)

In the right hands, this is one of the best main-handed weapons a warrior can wield, and comes with the added bonus of being absolutely iconic in the WoW series.


1. Warglaive of Azzinoth

“Rogue wep.”

Sure, the single-sword variant of this weapon is neat. But the real reason Warglaive is #1 on our list is simply because of its set bonus with the off hand Glaive; your attacks have an on-hit chance to trigger a 450 haste rating for 10 seconds, and you gain a 200 attack bonus when fighting demons.

That’s on top of the fact that these items are clearly strong even without the set bonus. Memories will fill your mind of being instantly deleted after finding (really, being found.) a rogue in a BG with this item set. There’s really not much you can do if that happens and you don’t have a solid team and therapist there to save you.

If you’d like to take the 5% chance of obtaining one of these two set pieces, you can do so by defeating Illidan Stormrage at the Black Temple. And the drop rate is 5%. Good luck!



That’s it for this Top Ten List. Agree with our rankings?

Think we missed something? Let us know.

In the meantime, we’re sure you’ll be grinding away with TBC classic’s recent release. Be sure to refer to this list if you’re in need of some goal to accomplish, as obtaining any of these items is a feat in itself.

Good luck, have fun, and happy grinding.

Here’s a quick recap of the list of the 10 best weapons in WoW TBC Classic:

  1. Warglaive of Azzinoth
  2. Dragonmaw
  3. Thori’dal, the Stars’ Fury
  4. Sunflare
  5. Stormherald
  6. Staff of Immaculate Recovery
  7. Apolyon, The Soul-Render
  8. Gladiator’s War Staff
  9. Golden Bow of Quel’Thalas
  10. Hammer of Naaru

The Best Endgame Great Hammer in Elden Ring



What’s the best endgame Great Hammer in Elden Ring?

What makes Hammers exciting to wield in Elden ring is how extremely powerful each hit on enemies with heavy shields and armor is. When unleashed with precision, you’d be able to execute heavy attack combinations and annihilate enemies effectively.

The Great Stars great hammer is one of the best in the game. It’s a spiked, rusty giant mace that’s extremely good at taking care of all kinds of enemies. This weapon can destroy shields and whoop heavily armored enemies. It can also steal enemies’ health which can particularly be effective against groups.

It would be best if you had high Strength stats to properly use the Great Stars great hammer.

However, the lack of piercing damage on hammers means they might deal minor damage compared to swords. Nevertheless, you’d comfortably bludgeon your enemies to death with the right build and skills.


Great Stars: The Best Endgame Great Hammer in Elden Ring

Elden Ring (©FromSoftware Inc)

The Great Stars Great Hammer is a good weapon for HP regen build. Each swing that hits an enemy restores your health, which makes using a multi-hit weapon art like the Prelate Charge a good deal.

Its weapon skill is called Endure, a skill that compliments players that relish blocking hits during combat.

With this weapon skill, you’d be able to absorb damage from an attack without getting thrown about.

You can infuse the Great stars with Ashes of War, upgrade it using Smithing Stones, and buff it up with Magic and Consumables.

Scaling: 22 strength, 12 dexterity


How to Obtain the Great Stars Great Hammer

Elden Ring (©FromSoftware Inc)

Getting the Great Stars Great Hammer means getting yourself to the Altus Plateau, where the hammer is found on the back of a guarded wagon.

There are three ways to access the Altus Plateau:

  1. Taking the Grand Lift of Dectus
  2. Through the Ravine-Veiled Village
  3. Using a secret route

You will need to obtain the two halves of the Dectus Medallion to get to the Altus Plateau if you want to take the Grand Lift of Decius. The medallions can be found in Fort Faroth in Dragonbarrow and Fort Haight in the Mistwood.

You’d be able to use the lift in the northern section of Liurnia when you have both halves of the medallion.

Head eastwards to the capital city when you get to the Altus Plateau. The road will take you to the northern section of the area under a large broken bridge, where the Road of Iniquity Side Path Site of Grace is situated.

Just barely to the west of the Site of Grace, you will find two ogres pulling a wagon similar to the one in Limgrave. Get rid of one of the ogres to stop the wagon, and you’d find the great hammer in a chest at the back of the wagon.

Utilizing the secret route means you have to be swallowed and killed intentionally at the bottom of the Raya Lucaria waterwheel by the Iron Virgin. Towing this path will get you to Volcano Manor, where you can easily reach the Altus Plateau. Take possession of the Great Stars when you conclude the Abductor Virgins boss fight.


The Best Builds for the Great Stars Great Hammer

It would be clever to use the Wild strike’s ashes of war on the Great star and set the attribute to heavy.

You’d do colossal damage quickly with insane bleed and a pure strength build.


Diablo Style Barbarian

Class: Vagabond, Warrior, and Hero

Primary Stats:  Strength, Endurance

Secondary Stats: Vigor and Dexterity

Weapons:  Colossal Sword, Colossal Weapon, Gargoyle’s Blackblade, Dragon Greatclaw, Grafted Blade Greatsword

Talisman: Green Turtle Talisman, Erdtree’s Favor, Crimson Seed Talisman

Armor: Crucible Set, Elden Lord Set, or Any heavy or medium armor

Skills: Ash of War Warcry


Whirlwind Warrior Build

Class: Warrior

Primary Stats:  Vigor, Endurance

Secondary Stats: Dexterity and Strength

Weapons:  Starscourge Greatsword, Magma Wyrm’s Scalesword, Scimitar

Talisman: Green Turtle Talisman, Erdtree’s Favor, Crimson Seed Talisman

Armor: Bull-Goat Set, Hoslow’s Set

Talisman: Great-Jar’s Arsenal, Endtree’s Favor, Green Turtle Talisman

Skills: Ash of War Quickstep, Ash of War Storm Blade, Ash of War Sword Dance, Ash of War Spinning Slash



The Great Stars Great Hammer is effective against bosses.

It’s one of those remarkable weapons that delete bosses with wild cold strikes as if each swing is infested with doom.

Aside from the spike on the Great Stars causing blood loss, there’s the added advantage of sucking the health out of your enemies as you hit them.

It would help if you had the strength to wield it, and when you do upgrade, you’d have some terrific fun killing enemies on Elden Ring.

The Best Endgame Curved Sword in Elden Ring



Curved swords in Elden Ring offer players the middle ground between traditional English-style longswords and the katana’s skinnier, longer aesthetic that edge lords just gotta have (just kidding, but only kinda).

With the game being as large and nuanced as it is with movesets, damage, scaling, and weapon utility overall, finding the right Curved Sword to invest your smithing stones into can be quite difficult. 

For this reason, we here at GamingTopTens have taken to finding the best late-game curved sword in Elden Ring so that you don’t have to.

If you want damage, a strong moveset, and some bonuses on top, you’ve absolutely got to with the Scavenger’s Curved Sword. 


Scavenger’s Curved Sword – Best Endgame Curved Sword in Elden Ring

Best Endgame Curved Sword in Elden Ring
Elden Ring (©FromSoftware Inc)

The Scavenger’s Curved Sword of Mt. Gelmir is a versatile, high damage late weapon that scales greatly into a C/C weapon with Strength and Dexterity scaling, by default.

The sword has a +45 bleed effect on standard damage weaponry and absolutely becomes a late-game wrecking machine with its B / B scaling with the quality table applied. 

The sword also has the spinning slash weapon skill, which acts as a strong way to inflict a few hits quickly, stacking massive damage and building up blood loss very quickly. In PvE, this sword acts as a strong way to burn down weak-to-bleed foes, such as humanoids and the likes of the fire giant.

In PvP, dual-wielding the Curved Sword is an almost surefire way to become a glass canon archetype that stacks damage to poise and HP very, very quickly. 


How to get Scavengers Curved Sword

Elden Ring (©FromSoftware Inc)

As aforementioned, the Scavenger’s Curved Sword can be found at Mt. Gelmir. 

To find it, head northwest of the first grace campsite at Mt. Gelmir.

After some travel, you should find a stone bridge with a Grafted Scion nearby. Instead of crossing the bridge, look for a corpse at a nearby ladder.

The Scavenger’s Curved Sword is on the corpse nearest the ladder. 


Best Build for Scavengers Curved Sword

The great thing about the Scavenger’s Curved Sword is that a wide variety of builds will work incredibly well, so no matter your playstyle there will always be a reason to pick this weapon up. Here are the more notable archetypes to try out for both PvP and PvE play. 

First, a classical quality build means that end-game characters with high strength and dexterity will simply get the most amount of damage out of the weapon possible. As mentioned, this gives the weapon a B / B STR and DEX scaling rating at +25, and will absolutely make easy work of the PvE content.

Enemies with smaller health pools will falter very quickly in the face of quick swings smacking for around 500 damage each, while enemies with larger health pools, such as the God Skin Apostle, will absolutely shred under the weight of the quickly stacking bleed effect. 

For late-game PvP, your personal skill will matter more than the weapon, but this blade will help punish enemies greater than a large number of other weapons in the game, and a quality build will be optimal for late-game non-faith or intellect users. 

Second, players who are early to mid-game can opt to simply leave the weapon at standard scaling, as the increased flat damage will benefit such builds better than extra scaling found with a quality build. 

Additionally, players who are magic or faith-based, obviously, should spec into the weapon’s potential via MAG or SAC scaling to make use of their non-melee-focused build. The fact that you can get these split damage types in Elden Ring and not lose out on the bleed effect is absolutely massive, and will keep the PvE content flowing just as much as the PvP experience. 

Lastly, players who are particularly adventurous can spec into the blood scaling archetype for a C / C STR and DEX scaling, along with an extra 37 bleed stack per hit. This isn’t particularly effective in every situation but will mean that two Scavenger’s Blades dual-wielded can stack a full amount of bleed on an enemy in a very short amount of time.

For PvP, this is close to useless in most situations, but in PvE can be hilariously effective against select bosses.



The Scavenger’s Blade is a versatile, high-damage, quick-hitting bleed extraordinaire that can do just about anything a player of any build could want.

For PvP, it makes quick work of foes. For PvE, there isn’t a single enemy in the game that you couldn’t take advantage of through the use of this weapon, save for those who attack from a distance or Rykard the snake of invulnerability.

If you need an end-game weapon to invest in, or just want something new to try out, you’ve gotta go Scavenger’s.

The 10 Best Pro Controllers for Call of Duty Warzone



Which are the best pro controllers to use for Call of Duty: Warzone?

Call of Duty: Warzone is one of the hottest FPS titles for the newest generation of consoles, as well as for PC. Not only does it offer the ability to play games cross-platform, but it brings in the addition of aim assist to the PC version. This now makes it possible for PC gamers to use either the traditional mouse and keyboard or a controller, without being put at a marked disadvantage.

In the past, the keyboard and mouse setups have had the advantage, mostly due to their insane accuracy and relentless speed. However, with the three different types of aim assist that Warzone introduces, controllers have become an extremely viable option.

You might think that picking a controller would be easy, that you just pick one that looks like it will fit your hand and gaming style adequately, and let the chips fall where they may, right? Wrong. And picking out a controller like that could saddle you with a controller that is hard to use, difficult to adapt to, and leads to loss after loss.


The Best Pro Controllers for Call of Duty: Warzone

Making sure you have the right controller is just like picking out any other gear you use, you need to make sure that it’s right for how you play.

Whether you need a controller that you can use for days without plugging in or a controller that you can mod until your gaming heart’s content, everyone is looking for the one that will bring their digital performance to the next level.

Here we’ve assembled ten of the absolute best pro-quality controllers that you can buy and do a breakdown of how they can each be best used on the battlefield.

  • + Extremely customizable


  • Paddles can be remapped, but at extra cost

Video game controllers have always been available in very few colors and patterns. You can get neutrals, blue, red, and camouflage, but those are the main varieties that you can choose from. While they are the best, there are definitely going to be some pros and cons, so you’ll want to weigh those to see if this would be the right fit for you.

You can go with something as simple as choosing a controller in your favorite color or you can get crazy and customize the buttons, joysticks, and the body of the controller itself. While their controllers ensure that you have exactly what look you are going for, you will be dropping a pretty penny to get a high-quality controller that is fully customized. Despite the price, they are simply the best.
