Killing Machine: It Slices, It Dices

In a continuation of my Death Knight column (focusing on the class in general, as well as my very own Vocah) I am delighted to announce that my [Shadow's Edge] has now tasted 1000 souls harvested within Icecrown Citadel! NOMNOMNOM! I got a few hundred from a farming run (resetting the raid before reaching Lord Marrowgar) and quite alot during attempts on Valithria Dreamwalker.

The next three tasks require me to steal essence from the Unholy, Blood and Frost wings in that order. I have to hop back into the guild queue for this, so it might be some time before I see much progress in this regard. After that, we're back in a familiar situation to [Val'anyr], with bosses (25-man only) having a chance to drop 1 of the 50 [Shadowfrost Shards] required for the final phase.

In a related matter, I won a [Battered Hilt] a week or so ago, and today I took the final plunge and subdued [Quel'Delar, Cunning of the Shadows]. I currently have it paired with the [Frost Giant's Cleaver], and I'm a bite-sized, slashing, chopping little maniac with them. :) Some people recommended I just sell it, but I figured my Frost build could use an upgrade and there's an achievement that I'd otherwise never ... umm ... achieve.

The quest-chain is fairly epic, requiring you to gather reagents from the Pit of Saron, temper it in the Forge of Souls, and finally face the blade itself when merely bringing it near Frostmourne in the Halls of Reflection causes it to go on a murderous rampage. I was quite moved when asked to participate in the re-enactment of Thalorien Dawnseeker's last stand before the Sunwell.

My only gripe is Quel'Delar doesn't mount on my back. I'd really like a checkbox to force weapons to mount on my back or my waist. That would be great, Blizzard. Go to it.
