Отличное копье для 51 лвла, равное по эффективности двуручкам 60ого лвл. Получается за квест
, который берется у Вогги Смертобоя у базы Алтерака севернее Таррен Милла
Obtainable at level 51 from a quest in Alterac Valley. Involves winning a single game.
To get this, you need to travel to Southshore and accept the quest from the female dwarf outside the cave to AV named "Prospector Stonehewer", she is on the east side of the entrace, outside the tent.
The quest does not say what the reward is, but after you win a game, (just being in the game when it is won is enough) you can go back to the dwarf and get your Ice Barbed Spear.
This quest has 4 weapons to choose from:
(If you dont need any of the weapons, choose this polearm anyway, it sells to vendor for 7 gold 33 silver 53 copper)
For a warrior, the best weapon pre MC, and ZG, thats blue of course. Great top end damage, and the stats would be good for a hunter as well.. of course.
Amazing hunter weapon, probably the best available weapon for a hunter until you hit level 60. Put 25 agility enchant on it.
Got this at 51 on my warrior, used it well into 60. With the new warrior talents (pole/axe 5% to crit all for the same 5 points) this item will be even more valuable. I suggest everyone get this as soon as possible unless as you level up.
This is quite the weapon for nearly all melee classes due to its high stat boosts and it has a high dmg range aswell so you can do some nice criticals :)
Easy to obtain aswell.
As many above have said. This is by far one of the better weapons in the game. It can be very useful in ZG/MC and yet still amazingly obtainable at level 51, and the only thing you have to do is win a game of AV! Great for Hunters, or Warriors and Paladins.
This is by far the greatest pre 60, and even 60 blues that are availiable. Not only will it give a melee class such as a warrior a great boost in their overall damage, for classes such as hunters and such who don't have twin dawn's edge's it provides a healthy amount of agi and great stats overall.
Easily obtainable at 51, all you have to do is win a AV.
Obtain the quest just outside the AV entrance in Hillsbrad Foothills. Alliance entrance is straight North of Southshore.
Horde Entrance is straight North of Tauren Mill.
This is a excellent free weapon for a paladin or a hunter,it also comes with a icy blue glow.
The best thing about this weapon is you only need to do one AV match to get it , you can obtain the quest from your factions AV entrances.
They are located in the Hillsbrad Foothills , it is north of Southshore for the alliance and north east of Tarren Mill for the horde.
Probably the best 2h weapon you can obtain before 60, and all you need to do is win a AV. The quest can be obtained outside the actual AV instance entrance in the Alterac Mountains.
As of patch 2.0.4 the quest is a level 60 one, so you can't get this at 51 anymore.
Dinged 51 as a hunter in ZF and hearthed to org then got on zep, flew to Undercity and took a bat to tarren mill. Once there I walked just above the town to a cave where an orc gave me the quest to kill the main dwarf in AV. Entered AV got around 200 hks and killed the dwarf. Once out I turned in the quest and the orc said something along the lines of " Yes, you have tasted the blood of the alliance now I will give you an extrodinary weapon of your choice!" The choices were a mace (that i couldnt use),a wand (that i couldn't use), a crossbow, and the ice barb. At first I didn't know what to choose, the polearm or the crossbow. I decided to go with the polearm because the crossbow's speed was so terrible. Plus although hunter's melee is poor the +21 agility is a big help. Definently choose the polearm unless your ranged weapon is like the bow from WC or sumthin not good.
This weapon is good if you get it from 51-57 but now with TBC the rage reaver is much better for damage and stats and you can get it at 58
Sigh. I have been in AV for almost 40 times. And i have never tried to win. That is really depressing, Cause i just wanted the weapon.
I was very lucky and got this on my first attempt in AV, only taking about 20 minutes. I just put a +7 dmg enchant on it and I'm whoopin up! I have the feeling this one will last me until the OL.
excelent weapon for all classes that can use it. obtainable in Alterac Valley,usable till Outland weaponry
i used this weapon until 60 then i got blade of misfortune but if you have TBC then u can get rage reaver as ftb262 said and use that until you ding 60---hope i helped----
+has anyone put fiery weapon enchant on ice barbed spear+plz tell me if you have
Ok this wep is WAY better for arms warriors because you get just about the same damage with mortal strike as Rage rever but this wep has +12 strength, +20 stamina and +21 agility. rage rever only has +14 agil and +30 stamy and i dout that a tank pali or warrior is going to be using atwo hand wep so use ice babred spear untill like 61-62 then you can get a better drop in blackrock spire.
yeah, but if you ally on "Cyclone" BG you will never get this... im sry.. ^^
question as a hunter what would u take; the crossbow or this spear?
Take the Crossbow.
U should try getting Frenzied Striker,Flame Wrath or Hunting Spear
Please be aware that you can only get this weapon once. Multiple quests list this item as a reward, however only by completing one of the Hero quests will you be able to obtain this item. Just a heads up.
If you're a warrior, ret pally, or hunter you're really doing yourself a disservice if you don't go get this weapon at 51. Even if you're power levelling, just get in the AV queue and go grind NPCs while you're in there until your team wins. On my last warrior, that took 5 or 6 games, and I picked up two levels in the process, but the next 5 flew by quite a bit faster with what is essentially a "twink" 50's weapon.
It'll take you all the way up until you find something better in Outland (which happens pretty quick), and you won't find a drop or BOE in the early/mid 50's that can compete. Just get it.
You can easly obtain this polearm at level 51 after completing a quest that a orc gives you in front of the entrance of AV in Alterac Mountains (63,59).
The only thing you have to do for this quest is win an AV battleground game.
Very nice polearm i had until i was 56 (which was a pretty long while at the time) :P
So far I've had about 10-15 games in this bracket (51-60) and Alliance hasn't even come close to winning a single one.
Your results may vary. This 'free' weapon is sure taking a long time to get.
I love this thing. Currently lvl 54 hunter BM spec. I have a few agility enchants, bringing my total agility to 222 ( 107 + 115 ). It regularly crits in the mid 500s on mobs same or higher level. If I'm farming say ... spider silk or something where mobs are grey, it crits in the mid 600s.
Was easy to get, too. First time I went into AV, I was lost bigtime. I followed some lvl 60s and got killed repeatedly. We lost. Second time, I stayed back from them a bit and helped out by keeping my pet on FurSeal mode and just using my Dark Iron Rifle with Sniper Scope. Until we got to the General, then I went all bestial and sent my boar in to stun the guy. We won. 2 games = best weapon I've used so far.
I just wonder which lvl i must be too be aible to get the quest? Is it 51?
Guildy tells me I am better off levelling to 60 then getting Hellreaver in Ramparts rather than trying to win an AV as horde at level 51...i think I agree.
For my hunter, I got the level 50 spear( my hunter quest) which to me is better then this one, and then got the crossbow. I think every hunter should do that.
kind of disapointed that all comments that say this are rated down, the crossbow is a great weapon to choose instead of this if that is what you need a bigger upgrade for as hunter
As a Warrior on a low-pop server who plays at night, I spend 90% of my time solo. I upgraded to the spear from my Ironshod Bludgeon (
) and saw an immediate difference. Definately worth the effort bringing my polearms skill from 5 to 270.
Only winning one game sounds easy but it is not, on my lvl51 hunter he has done 22 AV games now and hasn't won a single one.
Witch one is better:
Iced Barbed Spear (
) - with CRUSADER ENCHANT
) - WITHOUT the CRUSADER ENCHAT
I'm with this question in my head, and I'm gathering money to buy the DESTINY in AH, but the ICED BARBED SPEAR is a quest reward, then I can spend the money that i'm saving for DESTINY to put the CRUSADER ENCHANT on it... so I don't know if I buy DESTINY and wait a long more to catch more money 4 CRUSADER CHANT, or get the ICED BARBED SPEAR and put the CRUSADER CHANT at the same time...
what u guys suggest ???
just got this as a lvl 51 dwarf hunter! about +0.8% critical and 200 HP! very good for hunter and it will be changed with blade of misfortune or hellreaver on lvl 60! so enchant it wisely! :) depends on ur money! dont enchant with icy though! i prefer either agility or fiery but its expensive for most of u! :)
I would rather take the Xbow as a hunter, but i guess its more about personal opnions than actual facts/reasons.
Now, i dont have own hunter over level 34, but i do know that both of these choices, the polearm and Xbow, will be replaced quicly after entering outlands. And journey from 51 to 58/60 isnt too hard, its just that most of hunter`s damage comes from s/hes ranged weapon, and such if you have weak ranged weapon, this should be the choice for you. In the other hand, if you want better melee-weapon to boost your already nice bow, go for polearm.
Id say that both are viable choices considering that you wont be using them more than maybe 9 levels. And when you finally get to outland, you can just upgrade both slots without having to choose between.
At level 53 (2.3 patch implemented), I first I got 14300 XP (+ 2g70s) as well as 250 reputation with Orgrimmar and Frostwolf Clan by completing the prequest, "The Battle for Alterac" (
). To complete The Battle of Alterac, simply be on the winning side of an AV game. Upon completion of the prequest, "Hero of the Frostwolf" (
) becomes available from which the Ice Barbed Spear is rewarded. You don't have to do anything except accepting it and then complete it. Hero of the Frostwolf also rewards 950 XP and 500 reputation with Orgrimmar and Frostwolf Clan. The amount of XP and rep might of course differ depending on level, but at 53, these are the current numbers.
wow.........WOW.......WOW........this thing is magical...............
well the big problem is to get this thing you have to win and 9 out of 10 times horde win as i have seen in all BG,i am lvl 58 now and bad luck for me is that i am still trying to win and get this Ice Barbed Spear . good luck to you all
Just got this with my 53 hunter. Had Grimlock's Charge before this and was wondering which was better. It seems that this is definitely better for a hunter the GC.
This is the best weapon you can get for nearly all melee classes. Good stats. Good damage. Slower the better in warriors case. You can use this till lvl 60. Its a MUST if you are ARMS warrior or ret pally. HEHE and BTW i got this on my first try. Alliance is good in AV nowadays.
Hunters take heed, the crossbow is a much better reward.
Reposted from my original post on the Bloodseeker page
I advise any hunter to take Bloodseeker over Ice-Barbed.
Green level 51 Axe
..of the monkey
So for a hunter, Ice Barbed beats an Auction House green by 5 agility and 4 stamina. Not worth giving up the best crossbow you are going to have pre-outlands (most likely). Take the bow.
actually, ever since patch 2.3 Grimlok's Charge (
) is on par with this for hunters, and also available 11 levels earlier. get the crossbow.
this is an amazing polearm for lvl 51. Definite must. :D
Just got this weapon on my 51 warrior, it's great. Up to what level you guys think it's good ?
It's good until you can get Rage Reaver from the first batch of Outland quests, Hellreaver out of Ramparts, or Blade of Misfortune off the AH.
Just recently I picked up Sul'Thraze on my Ret pally (
) on my fourth ZF run at 45. Needless to say, I joined the swords and got it enchanted with Crusader all prepped and ready for when I dinged 50.
Then I saw a hunter in my guild running around with this...
What should I do? Hop in the AV queue and get this ASAP or just get to 60 (And outlands) with sul'thraze?
well...in real not the best choice for hunter at all.......hunters should take the crossbow from this q......this item hasnt so good stats.....u can use Grimlok's charge (Uldaman) until u reach any lvl 60+ weapon
Surprisingly difficult to get a hold of, in a ^&*!ty alliance battlegroup.
TBC makes this useless though :/
This weapon has been fantastic on my Ret Pally. Between a judged seal of the crusader, and SoC I could crit for over 1300 dmg on one swing at lvl 51/52 without any enchants.
I don't know why anyone would even consider Sul'Thraze over this.
true i got it at lvl 51 by wining my first AV match and its easely one of the best weapons for warriors or ret pallys before lvl 60
Ever since 2.3 this weapon has become almost unobtainable for alliance, as the changes to AV make winning impossible. Just to give you an idea how difficult, according to my marks of AV, I have gone 64 AVs without a win. I know that count is correct because had I won and gotten three badges, my quest would have been completed. So..just a thought alliance warriors might want to look elsewhere.
I will echo MoneyLoo's comments alliance suck on AV lvl's 51-60.
I have done about 20 BG's and lost every single one.......its clear horde have an advantage!
Dont even bother to attempt to try and get it as your wasting days, i prob wasted enough time to lvl to 55 + where you can get similar items e.g
from BRD far better to do that 10 times and get all that exp. Prob 40+ a run plus drops.
Thats my opinion anyway.
PS im informed that AV is even 61-70 from a few lvl 70's in my guild.
I got a fiery wep enchant on this just to be ironic
First battle in AV and we win (allies) :)
I like this Polearm but can you help me what enchat to put on it???
I play for first time and any help will be great for me. I`m retri pala lvl 52.
Thank you in advance :)
I am a lvl 51 Human Pally and i finished the pre-quest to the 1 to get this polearm. I am just wondering should i take this or should i take the cold forged hammer
. I am thinking either swiching to ret and getting the Polearm or staying prot and getting the hammer. Any advice? I am currently using Wall of the Dead
with +18 stam ench on it and bonesnapper
The is a awsome spear well and 1. its glows and u dont have to pay or gather the need mats for the glow it comes glowing! AWSOME!!! ppl are always asking me whered u get it.
Great weapon for a pally/warrior, can be obtained with relative ease depending on if your faction regularly wins 51-60 AV. On Vengeance it's about a 50/50 split.
Pick this up as soon as you hit 51 and you'll soar through your final levels leading up to Outland with ease. The quest also gives a nice chunk of XP as well, always a bonus.
Awesome spear for Hunters, got the quest won first game and didn't replace it till outlands =) i strongly reccomend for all hunters as soon as you hit lvl 51, you won't regret it =)
I have a problem. In my battlegroup Alliance hasn't won to the Horde in AV 51-60 in like 2 months. Can anyone recommend me something just as good for the same levelling range? Doesn't matter how you are supposed to get it, as long as it is obtainable. My character is a Retribution Paladin.
There is a new weapon which will be available in Wrath of the Lich King, which is, if you will, the upgraded version of this polearm.
The 'Icier Barbed Spear' is a quest reward from 'Amphitheater of Anguish', a quest line very similar to the Ring of Blood line in Nagrand.
This weapon will be getting a sequel in WotLK :)
i accepted this quest thinking i can easily get an awsome weapon... -_-
10 av's all lost...
40 lvl 60s against our 25 lvl 55's, not fun at all
what is the next best easily obtainable 2h weapon?
I love this polearm on my frehsly dinged 51 ret paladin. I useally kill an mob around lvl 48 whit 547 AP in 15 secs or so.
Very worth it :) I even had the joy of 50-60 AV in my battlegroup. The queu is insane long but the win is epic. All captured and drek down and 500 honor in bad ash fast time o.o.. wish I was like that at 60-70 =)
Auto-attack around 220 average on lvl 48 orger (around 400 crit).
Crusader stike hitting around 225 on average non-crit (around 470 crit)
seal of command proc hits for around 220 non-crit (400ish crit) and my max judgment of command crits is around 830. Havent tested whit stun yet and a crit hit.
conclusion: If you can get it.. do it.. I have been lvling whit green weapons since lvl 37 or so due to not being lucky on AH or instance drops so im gonna hang out there and get this alt lvld whit my new two-hander.
Edit: Just now I find my self ganking the ganker an 57 druid whit good gear and rigth playing. First attempt he did on me was 50% HP before I even tough I had any chance.. turned around and.. yea well. 10 mins later and he gave up :) Worth it alot for ret paladins lvling.
more e-peen boosting. lvl 61 shadow priest in duel well geared downed whit only bubbel and stuns and 52 atm. Ok ill stop now.. think I made my point. sorry for spamming my thread ^^
if only they could change the 13 str to 26 ap it would be even more awesome
This item is a hunter's beast friend, as soon as you tick 51 you can grab the quest to earn it, and you dont have to kill their main leader, all you have to do is win and you get an AMAZING weapon of choice, i used this until i could get rage reaver
This polearm is definitely worth the minimal effort required to obtain it. Others have already put it in better terms and stated that it would be a disservice to certain classes if this was avoided. However I just wanted to note that while this is a fantastic polearm for the series of levels you'll be using it, it will be replaced once you get settled in outland with this:
The blade is a quest reward from the following chain quest:
(for horde) or
which leads to:
which finally results in:
Don't get too attached to the IBS ;)
You don't have to pick up the quest anymore at the AV entrance in Hillsbrad Foothills. The quest is at the room where Vanndar is.
You will get this quest:
After winning the battle rejoin AV and go back to her. You can choose one of the four rewards.
= Chance on hit to apply a melt armor debuff >=]
great weapon, not hard to get. Can be replaced at 58 by
Also looks very nice.
Thanks to the ability for druids to use polearms in 3.0.8, this will be a great weapon for feral druids to grab at 51 too. Great balance of Stam, Str and Agi, everything a levelling druid needs.
In my server the Horde never wins AV, we're always outnumbered 2-1. Is there a comparable weapon for a warrior?
At level 51 this item is pretty much superior to any other 51 req item. However, i made a list of a few items that are decent for a warrior ranging from req 51-55
- Angerforge in BRD- Last option i would choose, because its much too fast for an MS warrior. If you cant get your hands on anything better than this, it can serve you until you can, though.
-Hydrospawn in diremaul
-From a mob in silithus. A very nice weapon for a poleaxe specced MS warrior
-From the Emperor in BRD. This is a nice one, but dont even try to get that far in BRD unless you have 3-4+ hours to spare and can find 4 other people who do as well. Plus, the emperor can be a real hassle to kill.
I would recommend
, its a good speed for those MS bursties, I had one at that level as a warrior, and it served me well. Waveslicer is MUCH easier to get than the items from BRD or silithus, and angerforge's axe is a bit on the fast side. Hope this helps. Good luck :)
I have this on my 52 MS warrior w/ poleaxe spec.
Saying it owns is about the understatement of the year
preety easy to say you(caps lock is telling you how 2 get it)YOU ONLY HAVE TO WWIN 1 AV MATCH!such a good wepon for such a easy task.
Meet the ice barbed spear's big brother,
the icier barbed spear
The icier barbed spear is a reward from
northrends version of the ring of blood
Anybody who used the ice barbed spear might get a chuckle later on when they see this thing
This weapon is the best weapon a hunter (don't know about other classes tbh) can get before level 60. When a hunter hits 60, he should go for Barb of the Sand Reavers. It's the best weapon for a hunter around these levels, and a 6% drop chance for an item like this is quite good in my opinion. Drops from Fankriss the Unyielding in Temple of Ahn' Qiraj.
I dont know why it wasnt mentioned before, but with an item level of 63, this can be enchanted with northrend enchants. I put greater savagery on mine for 85 AP since its easier to find someone with that than the old savagery. I got this at 51 and plan to use it until i get the polearm from ramparts, so the enchant seemed worthy.
A great choice for feral druids aswell, since as of patch 3.0.8 they can wield polearms.
I just got this today, on my Tauren Druid, got it enchanted with +35 agi, and I can only say, that I'm more than happy with this great weapon, as it provides superb stats at lvl 51, and a quite long time after.
As of patch 3.0.8 this is one of the best druid weapons for it's level.
The big brother of this weapon is definetly
"100% More Chilling!"
Very good weapon for lv. 55 hunter, just but mongoose / some agility enchant (if you are a hunter), and there you go! Perfect weapon for 50-59.
Anybody tried to enchant it with fiery enchant? If so, then please put up a pic of it, I'd like to see.
Which brings up a small side note, since it already has a glow, enchants don't produce an extra glow. The spear will still look the same.
i took the polearm when leveling my hunter because id picked up the lv 48 epic bow Hurricane for about 50g, both of them lasted me till outland
Sickest weapon available at 51, no doubt, and I got the fiery weapon enchantment. No Icy and Fiery Aura though, it stays icy, sorry : /
can only BC encahnts work on this or can wrath enchants work, since its a quest reward with no lvl >.>?
You will get it from a quest in Alterac Valley
I say use vanquisher and force of the hipogryph both with agi on them, and forget grimlok's... and get this baby just for looks. if you have the time compare them if not trust me I already did it and dual-wielding the above mentioned is better... if you don't care much about HP.
nice polearm, good for really anyone that can wield polearms, in my opinion
For those leveling toons with heirloom weapons: This is actually BETTER for several levels!
The dps is higher until level 55-57 or so, and you can use a WRATH enchant on it (85ap for example) so really it's probably better until 58, when the heirloom soars past again.
I'm an Arms warrior.
Got this polearm, but just got Dreadforge Retaliator from BRD. While the spear has 3.3 more DPS and 8 more top damage, but Dreadforge Retaliator has 30 AP, 20 Parry and 14 Crit. I'm assuming it's better, but I could be wrong.
Now there is a Weapon Obtained from Ampitheatre of Anguish, the Icier Barbed Spear, obvious reference to this
I have this on my ret paladin with +85 attack power enchant, yes it works on this weapon!, My paladin is lv52 and hes a beast with this bad boy, you can get it at lv51 by simply winning one AV so warriors/paladin make getting this weapon #1 priority at lv51.. too easy not to get. not to bad for feral druid/hunters if your still using greens. Remember, 85attk power enchant!
I got this on my level 51 hunter enchanted it with 85 attack power and my damage went form like 580 to 755 and i got like 150-200 health from it and my attack speed went up some. Yall saying to me grimloks charge is what a level 51 hunt should be useing makes me laugh because if you regear like you are suppose to you well have blues on no longer than 5-7 levels and greens on no longer that 2-4 levels and
you have a Purple about 10-15 levels. So useing grimloks charge is not a good option for a hunter at level 51. Plus i have had many ppl tell me that the croosbow is good but there are other good bows/guns along the way. And i tried useing grimloks charge and then icer barbed spear ice barbed spear blew Grimloks charge out the water on every thing.
so gathering from what i have read in most of these posts +85 AP is better than Crusader on this wpn? i am a ret pally btw
Part from the fact that AV seems pretty dead on Khadgar realm, I'd say this is a top-up for Feral Druids. ;)
Mongoose enchant works for me, it's really about taste though.
Having trouble obtaining this because NOBODY in my battlegroup wants to run AV in this bracket apparently.
I didn't see a post blatantly saying this, but this is enchantable with WotLK enchants requiring 60+. I know it says ilvl 63 on it, but I noticed before a lot of the recent updates/patches that it usually meant a "requires lvl xx" and not just ilvl and was having issues with a lot of the vanilla quest rewards.
not trying to jump into "should vs. shouldn't" enchant argument, I just had a lot of spare LK mats on my enchanter and wanted something to throw on this fantastic weapon for my druid.
Absoloutely perfect for transmog! Got it on my Hunter, works like a charm even keeps the cool blue glow!
Anyone looking to get this might want to hurry up before Mists, seeing how the new questing reward system will probably not allow you to pick this weapon up.
