Flashback! Thor'idal the Stars' Fury

Thor'idal the Stars' Fury

I'm sure most of us all recognize this legendary item. The hunter item of all hunter items from "The Burning Crusade." If you are new and don't recognize this item, this is the legendary bow from Kil'jaeden in Sunwell Plateau. While I never had the chance to play this raid at level 70, I started about 2 months before the release of "Wrath of the Lich King." I did have the opportunity of running SWP right when I hit 80. I was excited because this was my first raid ever in WoW and was dying to have this bow in my inventory. Since this was a pug raid we struggled on a few bosses but eventually got it done and arrived at Kil'jaeden.

Excited and hoping to replace my green bow we start the fight. Dead, we finish him off in one attempt and lo and behold. The bow of all bows from BC drops. Hunters rejoice, rogues and warriors get all uppity hoping it might be a free roll for them. Luckily the raid leader was nice enough to make it a hunter roll only. Three hunters total, including me...we roll, first ones a 10, sweet, I still have a chance. I roll, 43, not the best but one more left, 54...Ouch! I was very disappointed that I did not win this amazing item.

So, my first time ever to experience SWP the legendary bow drops. I unfortunately did not win, but it was a fun experience none the less. So, in conclusion, hunters look back and think about the memories of SWP and possibly setting your eyes upon this masterpiece. With the new expansion comes new opportunities and better weapons but we can all look back and remember the old days.
