этот мечик в игре падает только с этого моба
особенность меча в окраске рукоятки и свечении цветами радуги.
С точки зрения обещания в 4.3 трансмогрификации, есть шанс выглядеть очень уникально.

респавн рарника ~ 5-8 часов.
UP три важных замечания:
в Пандах респ рарника сократили, теперь он явно не 5-8 часов, а существенно меньше.
По состоянию на 5.0.5 меч еще падает.
Ввиду кроссерверности рарник так долго как раньше не живет.
Очень красивый меч, в принципе. Мне интересно, как два таких будут смотреться на фурике? =)
Это Очень Эпичный меч! Особенно для трансмогрификации вобще смак!
Я видел на аукционе за 150000 золотых его продавали... Свежеватель душ
Имею такой меч на азурегосе, кому интересно пишите
Недавно спрашивал у ГМа по поводу этого меча. Ответ меня очень разочаровал, не падает он больше(
Клянусь что у меня был именно этот сраный меч...я тогда не знал что это дико рарная штука и продал его...купил вроде на ауке за понт денег, позже наткнулся в нете на статью о нем и охренел...если спустя некоторое время можно будет выкупить у торовца его...пойду кл всем у кого был и выкуплю

Кемпить рарника лучше всего монахом в дд спеке со взятым талантом
Порыв нефритового ветра
. Этот талант позволяет иметь постоянное аое без спама кнопок, достаточно один раз включить эту способность. Количество тиков в секунду зависит от скорости, у моего монаха со скоростью 37% было 2 тика в секунду. При фарме в группе до 5 человек каждый получает добычу с рарника.
Просто для статистики - упал сегодня со 106 кила.
Дроп вместе с другой зеленкой. Как я поняла из английских комментариев, он всегда падает вторым зеленым слотом.
Лучше всего кемпить на RP-серверах, минимум людей было обычно с двух ночи до семи утра и потом часов с 11 до четырех дня.
Таймер от часа до трех.
Групп больше нет, на продажу фармить не рекомендую - уже очень упал в цене и будет падать дальше, кому нужно было, выбили или купили. На Галакронде неделю висел за 150к лот, сейчас висит за 130к, что ли. Если для себя - самое время, но приготовьтесь немножко
В качестве обновления информации в текущем дополнении 9.0.5 все еще падает, выпал с третьего кила.
Just gotta say.
Worst. Weapon. Ever.
"Oh hey, a mid-level resistance sword, might be kinda handy for ta-, wtfwhyisthisatwohander."
Stats are useless, but it has a nice speed for Warriors and Paladins.
Nice sword !! For Warrior on PVP !!
It does have a use
its use is for people to say how useless the item is
Slap a +7 weapon damage enchant on this baby and you'll have great luck.
This was from the Age of Resistances, which present at the same time as the Age of Chance on Hit
(course we still use resistances now, but we generally get it from hodir, KEB and AC rep, most gear used just has stats)
I don't know since wich patch, but this blade is real pretty, since it has blue, green, yellow, all kinds of glow enchants!
It is well known that basilisks have increased resistance to magic. Given the name "chromatic" (imo relates to chromatic drakes, which have the same ability), everyone would guess that this sword drops from either a basilisk or a chromatic(purple) drake. The sword also has a nice colorful glow to emphasize on the fact that is grants resistances to ALL schools of magic.
It has a fancy glow and that's what counts. It LOOKS pretty.
It's worth pointing out that glow is new (and I mean recently). I'd like to know how that went down.
Dev #1: "So we've got this sword..."
Dev #2: "Yes, the Chromatic Sword, it sucks."
#1: "We could change its stats around, make it worthwhile."
#2: "That sounds like a lot of work..."
Chris Metzen, drunk on the sofa: "PUT A GLOW ON IT, CALL IT A DAY."
Rave sword, heck yes.
got 1 for my retri-Pally.
bit of an accident, really; it was the only reasonable priced sword on her level, so i bought it.
just for levelling of the 2H sword skill, cause I too prefer a big 2h axe or better a 2H mace, ofcourse.
the fun part: when fighting and watching her from behind and slightly from above -the regular camera angle- it looks like she's using a feather duster!
that dumb sword has EXACTLY the same colors as one of those cheapo feather dusters
wich suddenly turned out to be friggin' hilarious....this innocent looking girl, decked in plate; featherdusting elite dragons to death in Lethlor Ravine
heck I want a house maid like that: gleaming armour, clanking around the house; whielding a 2 handed feather duster
epic cleaning ftw!
I remember this sword back before the awesome glow...it had a green and purple handle with a yellow hilt and a orange blade...im getting one now
just for the lawls
is a *slightly* weaker version of
Chromatically Tempered Sword
Appears the model's been nerfed. ='(
As of right now, I don't think this is obtainable anymore

Thanks for taking the time to contact the Game Master department! There is no indication from any source available to the Game Master staff at this time that the Chromatic Sword was removed from the game. So as far as the Game Master staff is able to verify, for all intents and purposes, the Chromatic Sword is still obtainable. I apologize in advance if any new information surfaces that suggests otherwise and for any confusion there may have been regarding your question.
May your loot be EPIC and rolls high!
Game Master Torrencius
Thats what i got wen i asked, so time to camp that lizard ^^
It pains me to see that there is a disenchant panel for this sword.
Before cata it was rare and had one of the most amazing glows in game. Once finished, bank it don't disenchant it.
Cata and onwards it's an incredibly rare sword with a unique look. Transmog/Sell for high prices don't disenchant it.
Edit: Dropped 2 lesser nether essences.
After I found out about this sword from Mogit, I went ahead and tried to camp it, spent around 2 days before I checked comments here and realised it's most likely removed from the loot list. While I was camping it one showed up on the AH for a 35k buyout... which I let it go as I thought I could camp it myself... luckily the same one showed up again a few days after I found out about the likely removal and immediately grabbed it.
Still couldn't decide which char to put it on though. Anyone know if weapon enchants show up on the model?
I would like to add if you are going to go for this sword(and alliance), the mob,
, is phased out after you complete the quest,
. I went to farm this at Crystalvein Mine after I had accepted the quest and every mod had disappeared, after completion of the quest they did not return. The area was simply devoid of any life. Will update when my ticket is answered to see if this is working as intended.
Update: Working as intended :(
You are receiving this message in response to the help petition which you submitted regarding the Chromatic Sword.
This is still in game and does drop from Scale Belly, however it is a very low drop chance, so it may take quite a while to see it!
We wish you good luck in your hunt for it! :)
I got that sword back in wrath of the lich king and I still have it but I dont know what to do with it.
Why yes, this is my portable rainbow. Thanks for noticing ><
I have camped this rare since january, kiling 2 times per day. Had no luck finding one. If anyone ever drops it, make your price, i can get it in anny realm.
If you really want this sword, there are a few options:
1) Be one of those insanely lucky people for whom it drops immediately or who find it for 10g on the AH because someone didn't know what they had (yes, it happens).
2) Start a number of DKs or level up lowbie toons on several other realms and plant them at Scale Belly's spawnpoint and make a point of logging onto them all a couple of times a day for the sole purpose of killing Scale Belly, with the intent that if the sword drops on one of them, you'll do a server transfer to get it where it belongs.
3) Keep tabs on the
The Undermine Journal
to see which auction houses have the Chromatic Sword and for which price - then, if desired, you can do a server transfer to grab the sword and wait a few days before heading back to your home server. (US server folk can also gnash their teeth over the insanely low prices - like 175g - that the European servers often seem to have for the sword, which cannot be obtained due to the fact that we can't transfer from US to EU.)
I did option 2 for about half a year before I decided to bite the bullet and go for option 3 when I saw it listed for 10k through the Undermine Journal. Ironically enough, it was on a server where I've been regularly killing Scale Belly, and had noticed that I'd missed a Scale Belly spawn the day the sword was posted on the AH. (That's something that'll make your head explode if you let yourself dwell on it. :P) Waiting for the transfer to go through was pretty nervewracking as I didn't want to arrive at the destination server to find that the sword had been sold a few minutes ago, but it worked, and I got it. I'll post a new screenshot when I get my Chromatic Sword courier toon back onto the home server.
For the latter options, it all comes down to whether you want the sword badly enough to pay real money vs having your hopes crushed time and time again every day. For me, I gave it a good try with my Scale Belly Slaying Legion, but the RNG god was just not in my favor. As goblins are so fond of saying, "time is money, friend," and by this point, the money was worth the time I'd spent and would be spending. Since the sword would not come to me, I opted for using the Undermine Journal to go where the sword was.
Good luck to all collectors - I hope you get the rainbow sword of your dreams as well! :)
As I've been farming this sword for quite a while now and have not seen anyone claiming on wowhead that they have found it recently either (most have just said that they have it), i decided to make a ticket and ask if there's any updated info about the sword. Sadly, in the reply i got some bad news, and here's the reply so you can read it yourself:
Thank you for contacting our support here at Blizzard :) I'm sorry you've had to wait for a response.
After looking through things it appears that there is not an item simply called "Chromatic Sword" in the game anymore. However there is a close relative that drops from Chromaggus. Take a look at the loot table for Chromaggus on wowhead and see if that sword with a similar name takes your fancy instead :)
Should you have any other issues or questions to ask then please do not hesitate to contact us again.
Thank you again for getting in contact with us and I hope you have many epic adventures :D
Game Master Frelnaars
So it seems to have been removed from the game. I really hope it might reappear in the future though, or that some other weapon might get it's glow.
To give you an idea of just how rare this sword is, here's a list of rare items currently available in Auction House's worldwide (stats from TUJ):
Blade of Wizardry
- 646 worldwide.
Teebu's Blazing Longsword
- 129 worldwide.
Blade of Hanna
- 61 worldwide.
- 8 worldwide.
Now compare that to "rare" items that go for 200k+
Reins of the Spectral Tiger
- 113 worldwide.
Magic Rooster Egg
- 112 worldwide.
If this was a TCG item (a sword with a completely unique appearance, available for transmogrification and as a rare items go in WoW) then it'd be going for 300k+.
It's just so very
The reason is because it is vendored repeatedly because of the stupid stats on it, and not everyone checks what it looks like before emptying the bags.
As for the sword itself, I've just had a good convo with a GM about this myself. I can post the screenshot of the discussion if need be but here are the salient sentences...
I'm here about your query about what many call the "Rainbow Sword". Check Wowhead for details of how to obtain this item.
I did, but I'm concerned about a level 40 item dropping from a mob of much lower level.
As a gamer I like to think of this sword as "the Sword of a Thousand Truths" lol... Wowhead isn't always correct but it's built by other grinders like yourself that has or are looking to obtain the Rainbow Sword.
Would that info cover the time before the Cataclysm when Scale Belly was a level 45 mob instead of the low 30s one he is now? As that would skiwiff the stats a little...
It seems as though Wowhead updates the stats with each patch.
So, in summary, it seems as though it still drops in 4.3.4, but it's almost mythical in it's rarity. Good luck farming it!
EDIT: Due to contradictory GM conversations on this page,
here's a screenshot of the conversation.
EDIT-EDIT: Those saying the glow has been nerfed? It hasn't. Put particle density on Ultra and play under DirectX 11 and you'll see it fine. It has at least five distinct colours.
7/10/12 GM Confirmation the sword does NOT drop in game any more.
LOL, well, here's my direct GM confirmation from today that it does still drop:
. (Note: I used the website ticket method, rather than in-game, so that's why it looks different.)
Edit: Realized that my GM's response is a little vague since he/she never mentioned the sword by name, so if you want to read the whole ticket string to be sure what item I wrote in about, here's another
I think the only definitive way to end this speculation since even the GMs are divided on this issue is for somebody to actually loot the sword and upload an image of themselves receiving the loot, along with the calendar date. Keep killing those Scale Bellies, folks!
Just sold mine on Alterac Mountains US Alliance side for 50k buyout.
Thanks, and congrats if any of you bought it :D
Guys, there is some way to try out this sword in my character ingame? (with the /run command)
"This item has been disenchanted 13 times."
When I see this i have just one taught: OH MY GOD.
So, Scale Belly got a makeover in the latest patch, and is now turquoise/green/purple instead of yellow/turquoise. I wonder why they changed him, and what it means, if anything, for loot like the Chromatic Sword? Anyone hear anything?
Lol i have this sword on my bank char and have had it ther in like 5years.. dropped when i quested whit my first char or something.. just saved it for the glow and all resistens that was on i then.. did think it was so rare :)
I hate to break it to you guys, but it
exist anymore. Any GMs that claim it does are just blindly looking at wowhead and seeing the pre-Cata data for drop rates.
A level 31 mob cannot drop a level 40 required item. Period.
i just bought this for 20k on moon guards AH lol
I remember clearly the day it dropped, I was wandering around stranglevale and killed an odd turtle whose level I do forget. Months later going through the bank I noticed it, and noted that it had the same icon model as a level 60 epic sword, fill me in as to its name, please. I was going to vendor/DE, and I even checked out the 3d model - heres the catch - I play with graphics on low for performance - the sword looked like nothing special!
Still, I decided to keep it, based on the icon similarity. This was way before transmog.
Returning to the game after several more months and an expansion or two, I find this sitting in my bank, and by now the undermine journal is working, and me and my friend almost went through the roof when we saw the Median/Mean/Deviation prices ....
So its so cool I don't know what to do with it, right now my
Wrathguard dual-wields it along with a Soul Cleaver, good stuff.
Have there been any confirmed drops post-4.0?
After researching a bit for the drop rates post Cata, there have been a few speculations over whether it still drops in game.
1. The sword may still drop from Scale Belly in very rare occasions - as suggested by the data on wowhead - however, I have never seen any credible confirmations on it actually still dropping from Scale Belly, other than the one smirky comment above. I am unsure on when Scale Belly last received a data wipe : but I find it unlikely (as others) that an item on significantly higher level to drop from a lower level npc.
2. GM confirming the item still available in game - the problem with this is that what the GM said was vague at best, he never confirmed that the item is still dropping - he merely stated the item 'can still be gained via normal means' - However, a lot of items are only deemed unavailable because they were BoP... but this item is BoE, which means being available on the AH could be considered a 'normal mean'. The GM's word is not enough to confirm new items to still be dropping.
3. Some speculates the item dropping randomly off other lvl 40+ mobs, but this has not been confirmed so far since there has been no record on it dropping off other mobs from the wowhead data.
4. Some speculates the item to still be available since it still shows up on the AH - again this is not direct confirmation on the item still dropping. Those available on the AH might have been obtained back in pre-Cata, and people just found them lying in their alts' banks and wanted to sell them for some quick money (as a lot of comments on the official forum has suggested). In fact, I grabbed mine on the AH some time before MoP came out. It sat in my alt's bank for over half a year before I finally made up my mind and equipped it on my Paladin alt. I might have decided during that time to sell it on the AH, who knows.
TL;DR So far I have seen no direct confirmation on the item still dropping in game (despite various indirect speculations), so if you manage to find one on the AH, you better grab it.
And sorry for bad English, not a native speaker here.
If RuPaul where a Jedi this would be its lightsaber.
I don't know if the sword drops or not any longer, but what i do know is I have personally gotten drops off a mob that was four to six lvls below the item i looted from said corpse. That being said, If items that are from say 41-50 create dream dust, then it seems "logical"(blizz logic) that the item would drop from this mob because it is 31 and the item is 40(vision dust). To me this makes sense. the mob that drops chan's imperial robes, on the other hand, has been nerfed to lvl 33 and the item it used to drop is lvl 47, this would be almost an imposibility imo. gl 2 all. just a theory :)
One popped up on my realm today confirming that it does indeed still drop.
There is one on my AH currently (Area 52, going for about 82k). I contacted the seller and asked if it dropped for him recently or if it was sitting in the bank. He kindly told me he bought it on a different server, and brought it over, but he believes it no longer drops.
I know this doesn't really answer the big question lol, but I tried to find out! :p
I think it still drops, and I think of it this way: Scale belly still drops all his other unique loot, so I don't see why this sword would be any exception. But I guess we'll have to see it to believe it. I have been farming him for a few days, but no luck yet. If it does drop someday ill be sure to take a screenshot.
It does not exist anymore
.Please do not farm him
.It is better to look somewere on dead servers,a few people farmed him for quite a while(the sword used to have a ~
Pre-Cata while the legs were around 60%)
Gms are next to useless in this game they are probably first-year computer students at their best , and could barely code their way out of a paper bag
Looking on Wowuse, there was 1 on Aegwynn about a month ago (Early March 2013) for only a buyout of 5 gold. This leads me to believe that it DOES in fact still drop, and whoever it did still drop for didn't realize how rare and valuable it is. I have only gone through a handful of US servers so far and seen 3. I am confident enough to say it still does drop, although a very very low drop rate.
Parked a lv70 twink in the cave since late Cata, log in to this character out of habit every log in, and usually every 3 hours of play time. Have so far looted bags and bags of green armor, along with an occasional blue weapon, from Scale Belly or the chest the rarely spawns right near him. Not seen the Sword drop.
Crushed when i read today, after not keeping recent with it, that its "no longer available" - I've farmed it so long its second nature, So, i'll continue on the hunt regardless.
Hello. This is Scale Belly. I would like to state for the record that I do not drop that cursed sword any longer, so I’m begging you: PLEASE STOP KILLING ME. As Wowhead states, the Chromatic Sword is “no longer available within the game.”
I’m just a poor basilisk trying to snooze on my nice cold rock and everybody and their brother keeps killing me, thinking I’m going to drop that stinking sword. Well, I’m not. I promise you I don’t have it anymore.
Now, I admit, I
a bit of a packrat, and carry a variety of items about me that you people keep taking whenever you kill me. (I mean, seriously, guys, that's my stuff! You can't just take a basilisk's personal property like that! Well... I guess you
, but you
.) That sword was the limit, though. It was too sharp and I kept stabbing myself with it whenever I'd doze off. And once you guys all found out about the incredibly rare "rainbow sword", and started slaying me every couple of hours to see if you could get it… well, let's just say that my life has been one long series of painful deaths and disorienting respawns.
So I spoke to the bosses that had hired me to be the rare spawn in Crystalvein Cave, and they very kindly took it away. In my innocence, I thought that would make things better. Unfortunately, I'm
getting killed, even though I don't have the dang thing anymore! That's why I just made this account here to address you all and beg you for some understanding and charity.
I'm the only guy at our weekly Rare Spawn Society meetings who gets constantly killed for what he
have. It's very demoralizing. The other rares try to understand - that's the whole point of our society, to make sure that those of us who are killed so frequently have a group of supportive and understanding friends - but it's still very lonely.
I’d just like to chill on my rock. Enjoy some peace and quiet after all I’ve been through. Maybe get to lord it over the other basilisks in the cave since I
the rare guy after all. They just laugh at me, you know, because of how often I'm killed. Sure, I come back every few hours, but those respawn headaches are no fun, and I often forget stuff for a bit when I'm first back, which they find amusing. (Especially when I get killed again the moment I appear.) And if they're not laughing, they're annoyed at me because people trying to get to me end up killing their way through the other basilisks. So I think we would all appreciate it if the Chromatic Sword farmers would please find something else to focus on and leave me alone.
That is all. Thank you for listening.
Is it possible to get this precious sword from the garrison salvage yard? I only ask because other 'no longer in the game' weapons have been pulled from those little boxes...
I just found out I still have one on a warrior alt!
Guess I am lucky today!
Too bad it is soulbound though
EDIT: Since they won't let me post links, I have put some pictures up. Hope they'll get accepted soon.
Also, if you got suggestions for armor to try on with dual chromatic sword on a worgen, tell me! So far tried on Sunscale and Templar gear
I have been watching this sword for over a year on undermine, looking at who is posting on different servers, how many new ones pop up and so on. From comparing this item to any other item that was introduced in the salvage yard that had been removed during cataclysm or some other event that changed certain areas, mob levels, etc. I conclude from my own reasoning that this item is not obtainable through those little boxes of goodies. I do welcome anyone to post a screenshot to prove me wrong, as I would love to know if they are. But from all my research and understanding this item is still removed (although BoE of course) and VERY rare. This does not mean they wont implement it into a future patch, as we all know they like to add and remove things at will, but for now what I understand is this comment stands. Goodluck all and happy hunting!
I made a comment about this but thought I should probably put it in this post too, the sword CAN be transmogged, search for my character Arrheníus (alt 0237) on thrall he should have it transmogged at least as of now and for the near future.
Another useful piece of information I found is the glow on this sword overrides any Illusion enchant if anyone was wondering. No Illusion enchant seems to show through, you always get the authentic glow.
I've got one up on AH on Bloodhoof Alliance EU.
WTB This Precious on any EU Realm
Add my BTag Swallek#2648
as of 6/14/2016 I have one of these for sale on US-Alliance.
Contact me on B.Net @ Gibaldo#1454 and lets make a deal.
Bought one from some guy in Trade chat, who was selling it for 500g, I thought the blade looked cool, so I took him up, as soon as I saw the item.
I have not equipped this item yet, and I don't plan on it, I currently stuck in a fork in the road, weather I hold on to it, or sell it.
There's one on the auction house at the moment for 900k.
I don't even want to equip it I just want my warlock to hold it so my felguard equips it!
I have one of these on Stormreaver EU if anyones interested - add my battletag ItzEthanz#2225 open to offers:)
You can barely even make out a glow now. What a shame.
I have one for sale on Barthilas-US. If anyone is interested please post me an offer, I'm not particularly interested in trades or other items. My battletag is Akin#11355
Quite possibly the most expensive BoE item of all time. If you happen to have it DON'T sell it for cheap.
One up on Mal ganis server 9.5 mill buyout
Funny looking through all these comments from 2005-2010. They're all saying how this thing sucks and you should sell it.
They had no clue what this would be worth in the future...
With the new scaling with the release of patch 7.3.5 we should be able to farm this item again on level 40 characters so might be worth keeping a lookout for this item again.
If you happen to get this sword off the AH for whatever reason, or if you're server hopping and spot on of these. They will now sell for in the MILLIONS (Depending) on the realm you go to. Keep an eye out for them since you can no longer obtain them.
I had one for 9 years. Sold it for 3.7mil.
Best of luck to you all! <3
Apparently this sword and other pre-Cata BoE's are dropping as of 7.3.5 due to the broad loot table. This MAY just be heresay, but it's worth keeping in mind that 7.3.5 would be the perfect time for things like these to weasel back into the drop tables. To that extent, consider whether or not it's worth selling the sword now if you own one, because
it is dropping and people learn that it's dropping, the sword may see an estimate 1000% depreciation in value within the first month of discovery.
FS on Blackrock - 20m
I just got via trade with a friend, seems no1 comment on the updated visual, it seems much weaker now as it used to be back in the day, it makes me a bit sad, but i'm still happy i got it back! :D
Now dropping again as of 8.0. It is currently unknown if this is an intentional change or not. Currently on farm by many people aoe spamming, so farming is very competitive at the moment. In addition, at some point Blizzard greatly weakened the particle effects, thus making the sword much more dull and not as outstanding as it once was. Hopefully they will buff the effects back up to its original state at some point, as the unique effect was one of the primary reasons this sword is so sought after.
Any confirmation on the rumour this is dropping again?
Is there anyone out there that has actually looted this in 8.0?
was just posted on youtube...
once again drops
Collectors rejoice (people who want to sell it for a large ammout of cash /cry). As of patch 8.0.1 the sword drops again. Scalebelly farming here we come!
Be patient and have a long temper for bots and people with multiple accounts to be camping this with a constant program running an AOE ability like thrash, consecration, whirlwind or death and decay.... i have no words for this tmog, i likely will not be getting it for the sole reason of the ridiculousness this is being camped... to the others good luck! i wish you the best!
Would this need to be farmed by a character around the level 40 range due to scaling?
Does it come with RGB controller?
Swing the Rainbow! Taste the Rainbow!
Can confirm its dropping from
after a 15 hour camp on one server its spawn times
seem to be min 1hr max 3hr +/- 15mins most common respawn time was between 2hr 15mins and 2hr 30mins,
this info was gathered over 9 spawns and sword dropped once out of a party of 5 over 9 kills.
Just some info I found while farming.
has ~ a 1-3 hour re-spawn (usually closer to 3). With the new loot system you can on do this in 5 man groups
raids, in raids only one person gets to loot. We estimate the drop rate of
to be 2-4%.
Anymore info I find I will update here!
Confirm what everyone already knows, I have 13+ kills since 8.0 and
respawns all are within 1h30 to 3h
For example, a few spawn of the spawns from Defias Brotherhood today :
I talked with a game master about this topic and the essential part is displayed here imgur.com/a/vm0aHYr
Unfortunatly I am new here, hence I couldnt upload the link directly.
Hopefully it saves you guys time!
Since there are so many confirmed drops, I think we can conclude that the game master had to be misinformed.
Sorry in case this post caused confusion among the community!
In my opinion, Blizzard should have just left the sword unobtainable so that people that spent a ludicrous amount of gold wouldn't have wasted their time. They should just added a cosmetic weapon enchant transmog for the appearance. Considering most people don't really care that much about the sword just it's one of a kind glow.

Should I stay on my own realm and in my own Crossrealm Zone (CRZ), or should I attempt to join a group to phase to a different less populated CRZ?
FAQ and clarification about Crossrealm Zones
Should I realmjump or not?
On one hand, realm jumping causes you to phase a lot. It decreases uptime of being in 5-man groups; it seems unlikely to have unfilled 4-man groups available during jumps.
On the other hand, it is possible to hit empty CRZ pools, especially during weekdays or off hours. Due to the minimum timer, you can safely check other realms for some time after a kill without risking to lose the kill in your the CRZ pool you're farming in.
is permanently camped in all CRZ pools round the clock, I would not recommended to realm jump for extended periods of time, but rather stay in the same CRZ pool if the minimum time since last kill has passed. Before the minimum timer has passed, you could potentially juggle 2 CRZ pools if you can rely on 2 groups with space and if the minimum timers do not overlap, but this is a lot of effort to set up also. The less populated the CRZ pools are, the more effective realm jumping could be.
Should I enable Warmode or not?
Info about Warmode
• War Mode allows you to toggle on and off World PvP on all realms, removing the distinction between PvE and PvP realms.
• War Mode can be toggled on or off in your faction's capital city.
• Players will only see other players that have War Mode on if they have it on, or players that have it off if they have it off.
• War Mode enables PvP Talents everywhere that PvP can happen and provides 10% bonus XP and rewards from World Quests.
While it seems immediately appealing to phase away from your competitors in a crowded CRZ pool, enabling warmode can also very easily start a slaughterhouse PvP party. Dieing, and particularly, dieing multiple times is very detrimental to your uptime and you risk losing a tag.
On the other hand one might also enjoy the PvP action as a change to the very dull downtime and long periods of waiting that this tedious farm implies, especially if you're on the winning faction.
Warmode is reported to not affect RP realms and will still only show players from the RP CRZ which is exclusive to RP realms only. Players on PvE and PvP realms may be phased to these realms through the group finder.
Do I own a monk or should I accept a lower chance of tagging Scale Belly than groups that only consist of monks?
Due to the new mechanics of Windwalker (WW) talent
Порыв нефритового ветра
(RJW) (Infinite duration, 360 8-yard range constant AoE) farming this mob becomes trivial compared to other classes that have to constantly remain active spellqueuing AoE abilities to have a chance of tagging
While the basilisk is factiontag it is immediately killed by any AoE ability, thus making it random which horde or alliance group happens to tag it first. Accordingly a group of 5 WW monks will have the highest chance of tagging.
Note that gear with haste rating decreases the global cooldown (GCD and subsequently also the swing timer of the

. I doubt it has much impact compared to i.e latency, but it could matter in crowded CRZ pools.
When you've decided on a place to farm here are a few things to keep in mind
• Write down the timestamp of a kill. If you're sure when the last kill occured and you know the minimum spawn timer, you don't have to worry about missing a spawn. If you're unsure, you may feel compelled to stay present for longer than necessary.

@ 4:46 server time on Thorium Brotherhood I was lucky enough to loot the Chromatic Sword from Scale Belly on my third kill using my monk. I was grouped and noone else got it, which means it must be personal loot.
Everything was so
there for a few years.... I'd
gotten you lot to realize that I no longer had that stinking sword. It was just me, snoozing on my rock in my lovely dank cave, enjoying the peace and quiet of a life without constant disorienting respawns and rez headaches. Sure, there were the occasional levelers rampaging through the cave and disturbing us all. But that's just an ordinary hazard of life in the jungle.
No warning. Not even a "Oh, by the way, we want you to guard this sword again" memo from my bosses. I woke up from a nap one day, and the sword was just
. And the moment I saw it, I just
.... Life was about to get very complicated again.
I don't know how you guys catch onto things so quickly. I tried to hide the sword at first, so no one else would realize that I had it again. But, nooooo.... the same magical forces that somehow brought it back to me and are making me keep it even when I don't want it also alerted the Chromatic Sword farmers. They have shown up in
, and they're even stronger than they were the last time I had the sword. I've had no peace or respite at all. The moment I wake up from one horribly swift death, I'm dead again, and all my stuff is gone. (Take the sword,
Trust me, I don't want it! But do you have to take the
of my stuff, too? Seriously!)
I've written a strongly worded petition to my bosses in protest. I mean, why
have to guard this stupid glowy weapon again? Can't somebody
hang onto it for a while? I've already put in my time with this thing, and I'm not happy to be forced back out of retirement and known around the caves as "that poor sap who gets killed all the time for his rare sword."
If it wasn't for the support of my Rare Spawn Society friends, who are all helping me deal with this unexpected crisis, I really don't know what I'd do. As it is now, all I can do is beg you to show some scrap of charity, some semblance of kindness. Please... I'm begging you... can't you guys just leave me alone again?
So, this sword can only drop for classes who can wield two handed swords. Why are there so many monks farming this? Are they that dumb, or are they just trolling? :]
Why is this so much more vibrant/pronounced on some screenshots than others? I thought it might be graphics settings, but I've got everything maxed graphically and when I checked out the sword at the a.h. it was a very subtle glow.
Glad for shared taps, most ppl are willing to work together, well at least those on the same faction. GL to all!
Does anyone know if this sword scales to lower levels if you loot it on a character below level 40?
I'm so extremely lucky. Since I'm kinda bored with BfA now and waiting for patch I decided to go adn farm Chromatic Sword. I killed it twice today and it dropped on the second kill, on EU-Twilight's Hammer.
The other 2 in the group, saying the farmed for weeks already were not happy, ROFL xD.
Had this drop for me this morning. Much to my surprise, it warforged to epic quality.
This sword also drops as a blue rare, I got one.
I am not sure this is still dropping... multiple kills over last week in groups no drops.
it still drops I seen someone get a epic one today my question is can a trial toon get it iv got like 300 kills between a couple servers on trials and have not got 1
So after about a week of farming and fighting over the spot with multiple AOE AFKers.I finally got it! It might be that I got it quicker then most people farming but just getting the kill was the hard part. I only have an approximate number of times I killed him because I didn't start keeping track right away but my kill count seems to be roughly around 30+. Funny thing was I was about to leave the house and was like lemme check for scale belly real quick on my laptop. I logged in an he was there and killed him twice on two different toons...the 2nd kill it dropped! So good luck all! As of Friday, Nov.22, 2019 10am est...
He is still dropping the sword! /FARM ON
Finally got this on one of my rogues after nearly 6 months of AFK camping
Weeks of farming, but finally got it as an ilevel 66 rare. I found it marginally less frustrating to do this on a skinner and rampage around the cave once in a while.
Had a chromatic sword drop today on 4/20 (nice) in 2020-- which interestingly, dropped with another random BoE (Captain's Bracers of the __).
I had no idea the sword was displaced and unobtainable for years since the Cataclysm and then available again in Battle for Azeroth, because that would have saved a lot of time when I used to swoop into the cave to slap up that basilisk. Just commenting for word-of-mouth confirmation of it still being obtainable presently, because the next expansion is supposed to have another level squish which might affect unique weapon drops once more.
is a low drop from this rare, found inside the Crystalvein Mine (67.7, 25.7) in
Мыс Тернистой долины
. His respawn time is 1-3 hours. The absolute best way to farm this item is to have a character in Chromie Time parked there, ideally in Warmode on an RP realm.
I can confirm this drops in Shadowlands. Had it dropped after 27 kills.

Got this on PTR a couple of days ago, so it should drop after prepatch too.
Chromatic sword drop 22/10 12:11 server minahonda
i dont have playtime so i cant even sell it
Had one drop for my paladin in chromie time
Can this sword drop if your level 10 in chromie time?
This thing is going for like 50k on Tichondrious, lmao. The ability of people to farm this with Chromietime + WM toggle has led to an increase in supply for sure.
As of this date it is listed in the AH in Shu'halo at 390,000 gold.
Got this today and its blue (rare). Just randomly killing rares in STV. Will upload SS if Wowhead will allow it.
I wonder if the drop rate increased recently?
I farmed that lizard daily for most of 2021 and got nothing, and now I've had THREE swords drop in the last two weeks.
RNJesus does not love me, something is different...
