I’ve been making some progress with my draenei hunter Florinn in this week.
Last Monday, I successfully completed my artifact weapon quest and captured Titanstrike, which is for hunters who specialize in Beast Mastery.
According to the World of Warcraft website, “A peerless example of techno-magical engineering, the Titanstrike was designed by Keeper Mimiron, a titanic watcher and brilliant inventor. Securely housed in the heart of the rifle, a relic known as the Thunderspark powers the Titanstrike, harnessing the essence of storms and focusing it into concentrated blasts of energy. The rifle’s power source can also be credited to Mimiron, who devised it for his comrade, Keeper Thorim, in ages past.”
The quest to get Titanstrike was interesting. I teamed up with Grif Wildheart and Prustaga and raided Volund’s Tomb. Moments after I defeated the warlord, Prustaga took the gun. After helping the Titanic Watcher Mimiron, we went to Ulduar to speak with Thorim. This led to a battle with Prustaga, which ended in an explosion. Hati, Thorim’s wolf companion took brunt of the explosion, which led to me bonding its spirit to myself and Titanstrike. Hati now fights alongside my hunter and his wolf Lanseril.
While I watched several of Nobbel’s videos on artifact weapons, I didn’t see anything on Titanstrike and went into the quest cold. With Titanstrike being a gun, I wondered why it was the choice weapon for Beast Mastery hunters – now I know.
I recently acquired enough artifact power to unlock some traits, which I need to go back to the Trueshot Lodge (my class hall) to equip. I’ve seen weapons in the Lodge that are stronger, but they deal less damage per second. I also feel like the more work and time, power and relics I put into Titanstrike, the stronger it will become.
