Back when we were running Ulduar regularly, I started collecting the fragments for the legendary mace. I managed to gather twenty or so before we left our server and headed for 10-man raiding land. While on Bladefist I picked up a few more, and this weekend I nabbed a 25th fragment.
I'll be honest, I think it's worse getting a new one, even now.
I don't care that the mace isn't OP (or that some say it never was good at all), I still want it. Bladefist isn't a big enough server where I can find guilds that are running Ulduar for kicks, though I'm going to try pimping myself out on the forums or something. Maybe I can get lucky.
Of course if I do manage to land 30 fragments, I still have to find a way to net a 3-Light kill - which is still no small feat. If I get to that point, I'll definately start hitting up the blogsphere, offering money, hosting services, or whatever else I can - just to close the book on this thing.
Besides, who could resist an amazing looking item like that?
