Blizzard posted a new story on the official wow site about 4.2 about what looks like the new legendary item, a caster staff.
 
Heres the link if you want to check it out. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/2685003
 
So the question is, who we going to try and get it for?

We'll have a naked gnome race to decide.


First one to Booty Bay wins!

Azizz or Babble are the obvious choices, but if it can be a healing staff too, its gonna go to one of the healers. Some sort of decision is going to have to be made, and it will most certainly be attendance and performance based, I don't want to give the staff to someone (read: me) who wouldn't use it to its full potential, or for whatever reason isn't able to make it to a lot of raids. We have quite a while to make that decision, but it needs to be made before 4.2 hits.

Heh, I guess lose then. Damn my trip to San Francisco, cutting into raid time!

For everyone, ofc. You gotta consider how long it might take us to progress through Firelands, Raggy is sure to be a requirement, and in the time it takes us to get there it shouldnt be hard for multiple people to be up to that stage if it's anything like the Shadowmourne questline.

Could have sworn it was already confirmed that it isn't a healer staff.

@Babble: Yeah Apparently it has been confirmed in a translated interview with a German fansite. The stats might be decent for healers, but the proc won't be. And yeah, eventually a few casters will get it, but I seriously doubt we'll ever get enough for all the casters to have it, if it requires as many boss kills as Shadowmourne did. Regardless, we need to pick someone to get the first one, cause if we start splitting the shards, it takes forever for anyone to get one.

@LibraryDues:

It's a damn shame DK's can't use staves. I hear they love spell power.

Yeah, gotta boost up those Blood Boils any way I can.

Would love to see a Fury Warrior dual wielding these.  Bet they're unique, though.  (As if that was all that would prevent it, lol)

I'll roll on it. I can take it for a boomkin spec.
