World of Warcraft: "Blinding Improvement"
Posted: Monday December 31st, 2007 by

I mentioned last week that I'd begun playing around in WoW's PvP battlegrounds, particularly Alterac Valley. Well, yesterday the fruits of my labor finally ripened. I purchased the Gladiator's Decapitator, a 2H pvp reward axe.

I began having issues with the new axe as soon as I equipped it though. There's something about the frequency, color, contrast against the rest of my gear or a combination of all three that makes my head hurt. No other spell effect in any game on any item has ever had this affect on me. Not wanting to have to beg a GM to refund my honor so I could purchase another weapon, I began researching the issue. Can't modify the game without the fear of being banned. Enchantment effects do not overwrite the base effect. The best answer I came to was to turn down "spell details" in my video options. (Thanks Layo) It's not 100% effective but it's much better.

Having settled on keeping the axe, my next move was to get it enchanted. 500g and a mad search for a trustworthy enchanter later, I had Executioner added to the thing. Now that enchantment graphic is intense enough on it's own. Add it to the existing effect and it looks like I'm conducting some kind of experiment. Oddly enough, the two combined... don't give me a headache.
