This is the ideal BM Hunter weapon. The 2.4 speed means it will autoshot every 1.5 seconds with a 15% quiver, fitting perfectly into a SS rotation. BM spec will cast SS in 1 second, and the .5 AS delay will be up right at 1.5, same time as the GCD.
Note that this is assuming 5/5 Serpant's Swiftness.
Considering this is a faction reward, not a dungeon drop, rogues may also want to consider using this. Stats-wise, I don't believe there are any weapons (excluding drops from Karazhan or end-game dungeons) that are so easy to obtain and provide such good stats.
Farming for this at level 70 only took a day. Quests will take you well into Honored, and farming until Revered at level 70 is a breeze.
this gun is decent but the ornate khorium rifle is better, especially since it is nice and slow compared to this gun.
get this for my warrior. just for the stats :)
Very good stats for a warrior, definitely worth farming the rest of the repuation if you already did alot of their quests.
On another note; the graphic of this gun has been in the game for a very long time, and was previously believed to replace the graphic of Blastershot Launcher, wich obviously wasn't the case.
Good BM Hunter gun ... Very unique look
Grinding to Revered with Consortium took a very long time, even after I completed all quests that give reputation with Consortium. I had about to grind for 8000 reputation for Revered alone. Revered is the highest I will go with Consortium.
The best way I found to reach the status is grinding in Nagrand for Obsidian Warbeads. They drop approximately 1/3 times.
This is what you complete:
250 reputation with Consortium for 10 Obsidian Warbeads
10 reputation with Kurenai for every 1 ogre killed
Oshu'gun Crystal Powder Samples for Halaa Research Tokens
AP nerfed from 36 to 28 in latest patch. Still a very good weapon for the DPS warrior rogue, statwise.
love my gun=) its just IMBA!!
I use this on my warrior.
I personally find this to be a very beneficial "stats" weapon. 7 crit isnt awhole deal, but the Crit and not to bad AP mixed with that little bit of stamina (for pvp or if agro is pulled) all combines for a very nice weapon for a rogue or warrior. Comparing it
(wrathfire hadcannon) , it has 3 less crit, 2 less AP. but it has the stamina.
If this could be combined with
(stabalised eternium scope) it would be rather amazing. though i dont believe it can.
I have a question about screenshot #3 (from millenio): what gear does she use - looks very nice.
Why don't you just go do 1 mechanar run for
... its alot easier then 50 hours of farming this is 1.5 hours..
This isn't really a major point, but the model file for Consortium Blaster was what many players speculated the Blastershot Launcher from Molten Core would be upgraded to, back in the days of pre-Burning Crusade. Has a somewhat 'Dark Iron Dwarf engineering' feel to it.
Great gun honestly, but as a BM hunter it is hard to thread a steady shot in between, not that im complaining, the gun overall kicks some ass (and well worth the rep grind) I am surely looking for something slower in the near future.
After messing around with Cheeky's Spreadsheet, I bit the bullet and did the rep grind to revered one weekend. Overall, I am very much pleased with the gun.
Just on an asthetics point of view, the screenshots do not do it justice. In the rear of the gun, there is an open flame that flickers and does leave a trail behind you as you move. The barrel of the gun is a box with actually 3 barrels inside of it. When fired, it glows red hot, rotates down and is cooled by expelling steam out of the tube hanging off the bottom. Very much fits the dwarf engineering feel.
As for speed/rotations/etc, Anything with a cast time (steady shot/aimed shot/etc) are effected by haste effects. I am BM build and primarily fire a steady/auto macro and it works just fine without clipping.
For all you guys that do the math for weapons, how does this stack up against Valanos' Longbow (
) for BM Hunters?
This has to have the coolest Graphic of any gun in the game.
It shoots different color "lazers" depending on what shot you're using. Arcane shot is blue, serpent sting is green, kill shot is fire, cobra shot is green snakey things. It is awesome.
This gun has a few special effects:
- It has a red, glowing lava-like ball near the handle (which leaves an orange dotted trail while flying and moving). This is loaded into the barrel and is the actual ammunition for this gun! You can see this in the screenshot with the female orc as she shoots. Two of the three vents in the bottom of the gun opens to vent heat/smoke/fumes. One of the screenshots with the dwarf shows this.
- About 0.5 seconds after each shot, the barrel revolves and a new glowing "ball" is reloaded into the back of the gun. Smoke and a bit of fire effects emanates from the muzzle and the "cooling chamber" (the "hook" underneath the barrel) when this happens. This is shown in one of the dwarf screenshots.
Gotta love those effects :D
