A Night Elf Mace Rogue's Path to Thunderfury

Zodar

2/22/05 - The Beginning of a Mace Rogue

The tale begins below with this screenshot of Zodar, my Night Elf Rogue, at Go'Shek Farm in Arathi Highlands. I'd previously spent my hard earned gold purchasing the rare Excavator's Brand on the Auction House to replace my weak main hand weapon. I knew full well that such a purchase could delay my first mount, but I sorely needed an upgrade. After equipping that mace, I noticed an immediate improvement. Sinister strikes hit much harder and the weapon's fireballs quickly finished enemies off. My search for that ultimate mace led me to make a Maces chart, then more weapons charts, and eventually all of the other charts and resources that can now be found on my site. The next few levels flew by as I smashed my way through Arathi Highlands to level 40.
