Time for another rant this one about the Shadowmorne items, and how people deal with them. First of all yes the person who completes the Shadowmorne and then kills the Lich King gets these items. The question is who do these belong to? Some would say to the person who has the Shadowmorne since well they may have bought the saronites for the weapon, and of course it is their weapon. The guild since they were the ones that supplied the raid to get all the required drops, and the completion of the quests, of course.
The answer is really both. Yes, they are just Vanity items, but they are artifacts in themselves. I have seen people selling them, which to me is wrong. My thoughts are the person who gets the Shadowmorne is fair to keep a couple of the items for himself. After all if he paid for the saronites and was part of the raid that was successful at completing Shadowmorne. It really couldn't have been done without them. This does not mean he can just sell the unwanted items to the highest bidder in hopes of hitting the gold cap before the expansion. They do not belong to you to do such things. You could not have got your weapon without the 24 others along the way. There would not have been a chance at all at getting it without those 24 people.
I will receive my Shadowmorne in a couple weeks and I will keep a couple of the items, but the others belong to the guild and no one else. They will never be used to make a quick profit or be exploited in anyway. They reflect an accomplishment of the guild and therefore should be treated as such. I hope any of you who gets a Shadowmorne or someone in your guild gets one that they also do the right thing,
