What is the Thunderfury?
Thunderfury is a legendary blade that was once wielded by the Elemental Lord of air and master of Skywall, Prince Thunderaan in the World of Warcraft: Classic. World of Warcraft, or also known as WoW, is a multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) that was released in 2004 by Blizzard Entertainment.
In this game, the Thunderfury is one of the most notable items you could obtain. However, getting the sword requires a long and challenging process. As well as that, you will also need to have a raid group exploring a specific place within the Blackrock Mountain. You will also need that group to slay the final boss and get the item required for receiving the sword. Sounds cool, right?
The Origin of the Thunderfury
During the Elemental Sundering, the 5,000 year-long battle between elemental forces, Ragnaros, and his lieutenants Barron Geddon and Garr defeated the Prince of Air, Thunderaan. However, Ragnaros was unable to completely taken Thunderaan’s power into his form. He then forced what’s left of Thunderaan’s power into a talisman of elemental binding.
This elemental binding was broken into two pieces, and Ragnaros gave the two halves (known as the Bindings of the Windseeker), to his two lieutenants, Baron Geddon and Garr. In the WoW game, these two bindings are required for the forging of the Thunderfury.
After several ages have passed, the talisman halves were obtained by the follower of Thunderaan, Highlord Demitrian. He had combined the talisman, although he was unable to release his master. Consequently, he forged a sword that will serve as the vessel for Thunderaan’s essence.
How to Obtain the Thunderfury?
As it was mentioned earlier, obtaining the Thunderfury is a difficult process, so be sure to follow the steps below. Also, since this is an endgame item, you will need a raid group that is exploring the Molten Core in the Blackrock Mountain.
Step 1: You will need to get either the right or left Bindings of the Windseeker. But, in order to get this item, you will also need to kill either Garr or Baron Geddon. However, its dropping rate was only about 3-4%, which means it is going to be pretty rare for the item to drop for your group.
Step 2: Go to the north-west part of Silithus and Speak with Highlord Demitrian. Assuming that you’ve got either of the Bindings of the Windseeker’s halves, you will need to have a talk with Highlord Demitrian.
Step 3: Examine the Vessel. (Quest)
After that, the Highlord will give you the Vessel of Rebirth. It is a quest item that will start the quest chain to forge the Thunderfury. Examine the vessel then return it immediately to Highlord Demitrian. He will then give a follow-up quest.
Step 4:Thunderaan the Windseeker (Quest)
Next is the Thunderaan the Windseeker quest. This will be the longest part because you will have to collect some items, and one of those items is extremely rare.
These are the requirements needed for the Quest Thunderaan the Windseeker:
- 10x Enchanted Elementium Bars
- 1x Essence of the Firelord Ragnaros, the final boss of Molten Core. (This is a 100% drop, assuming the player had the quest.)
- 1x of the Bindings of the Windseeker (Since you already had the other half.)
- 10x Elementium Ore
- 10x Fiery Cores
- 100x Arcanite Bars
- 30x Elemental Flux
Step 5: Once you already collected the items needed, you will need to go back to Highlord Demitrian and gave them what you have collected. Also, bring your raid group with you. Because once the items were turned in, Highlord Demitrian will now summon Prince Thunderaan.This will not be an easy fight, so it really requires a full raid group to complete.
Step 6: Rise, Thunderfury! (Quest)
Lastly, the conclusion of the legendary quest chain, Rise, Thunderfury! Once you defeated Prince Thunderaan, he will then drop an item called the Dormant Wind Kissed Blade. The player needs to loot this item and bring it to Highlord Demitrian. After that, the player will receive the Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker.
