Fire Kitty: Fandral’s Flamescythe

The new staff that drops from Majordomo Fandral Staghelm in the Firelands raid instance is truly awesome for feral druids. It transforms cat form into a cat of fire!

I was on the public test realms last night and got some screenshots of a druid who was using it. Wowhead is not listing the shape-shift effect yet, but it very clearly has one.

Here’s the details of the staff: Fandral’s Flamescythe, and the buff it grants on use, or when in combat in cat form.

There is a fair bit of discussion on various forums about this being a trial run of customizing druid forms, but lets face it, who cares? All feral druids want this, and I’m sure we’d murder any hunters who rolled on it! All of a sudden I have a burning desire to push progression very hard in Firelands with my raid group 🙂

    I’m hoping dearly that it’s a trial-run leading to a feral legendary. The reason Blizz gave for never having one is that its art is wasted on ferals… but this would clearly bridge that gap.

    I also dearly hope they tag this as a druid-only staff. Losing it to a hunter would be heartbreaking.

      A legendary staff would be cool. We’d probably share it with hunters then as well though 😦
      At the moment the staff is not feral-only, and I don’t think that will change – based on the fact that it is the only BoP staff/polearm in this raid tier so far. There is a BoE polearm as well, but I’d be surprised if that was the only hunter option.
      The only hunter in my raid group has been a friend since university (which was a depressingly long time ago!), so I’m sure he’ll be nice when this staff drops for me 🙂

      Hi Icey 🙂 I’m glad you like the blog, I have fun puddling around with it.
      You’ll be missed, and there will always be a spot for you with the guild. If I find any more cute outfits then I’ll make sure I post them for you.
      I think I’ll tank in cat form when (and if) I get that staff. You’ll be glad you’re not healing me anymore 🙂

      Oh, and look who I found, showing off in Dalaran…
