Yes it is true! After paying 3000g per saronite for the 25 needed for Shadow's Edge. After getting the bloods from the Abominations. After seeing the Zombie Apocalypse in Frostmourne Cavern. After collecting 1000 souls within Icecrown Citadel. After obtaining the Unholy Infusion from Putricide after some horrible luck. After gaining the Blood Infusion with a little help from healers. After some blessing of freedoms and Guardian spirits while getting the Frost Infusion. And finally after weeks upon weeks of horrible drop rates on shards last night I got the 50th Shadowfrost Shard needed to complete the quest to gain Shadowmourne. This is what Darion had to say
It is complete. Where most would falter you have overcome. You have withstood the torment of the Lich King himself and now Shadowmourne is yours. Go now wield this mighty weapon and direct the countless living souls that empower it. Go now and defeat the prince of darkness!
I want to thank my guild for all the bosses we have killed shard drop or not. I would not have this weapon if it wasn't for all of you. One person doesn't make up a raid, you need 24 other people to do what we have been able to accomplish. This weapon is a symbol of everything we have been through. Every wipe, every kill, every trash pull, and of course every joke. So thank you all for every raid and of course allowing me being that person to wield this. It really is a great feeling to be done with it. Not having to see that stack of shards sitting in my bags wondering if it will every get finished. Not seeing that quest that is incomplete in my log. Now it is just time to kick some ass with some purple swirlies.
To everyone who reads this blog you no longer have to hear me bitch and complain about lack of shard drops. All my complaining can now be directed to not getting into Beta and well ret Pallies. Also to everyone who reads this blog I said when I got my Shadowmourne there would be a new top header to the blog. So I am looking for suggestions as to where the Screenshot should be taken and how it should be taken.
Thank you everyone for the support and encouragement that it would get done, and Ziggie I hope your shard collection goes a lot smoother than mine did.
