Asmongold freaks out as WoW raid boss drops rare item after two years

Popular Twitch streamer Asmongold was absolutely blown away after an ultra-rare World of Warcraft item finally dropped off a raid boss after two years of trying.

Asmongold is one of the most popular WoW streamers on Twitch, but like a lot of other players in Blizzard’s legendary MMO, there was one item, in particular, he had been trying to acquire for literally years.

The item in question is the extremely rare “Scythe of the Unmaker,” which, according to WOWDB’s database, has a 0.6% chance to drop from Argus the Unmaker, the final raid boss from World of Warcraft: Legion.

Legion came out in 2015, but Asmon has been attempting to get the Scythe to drop since 2018, and he’s come up empty-handed every time, or with some other, less prestigious loot. This all changed on August 2 though, when the RNG gods finally decided to bless him with the weapon.

As he’s done before, Asmon confidently predicted that this would be the run where the super-rare polearm finally dropped. Some of the more superstitious WoW players out there might criticize the streamer’s apparent hubris, but the callout ended up making the drop all the more memorable.

“I’m gonna get it now for sure, watch!” Asmon laughed as his raid finished off Argus. “Watch me get it, dude, watch me get it even after I said it.”

The Scythe of the Unmaker doesn’t work like your regular, run of the mill raid boss loot. Instead of taking it from the chest or off of the corpse of the boss, it automatically loads into a player’s inventory following the fight, and when his game reloaded after the battle, Asmon was temporarily at a loss for words.

The Scythe of the Unmaker apparently took the words right out of Asmongold’s mouth.

“What, what? It’s over, it’s over!” Asmon yelled as his two-year quest finally came to an end. “Oh my god, yes dude. I knew it, man! After two years, two f**king years of farming this man, we actually got the Scythe. See? I told you it was gonna f**king drop, I knew it.”

Every WoW player who’s been in it for the long haul before knows the exact feeling of getting that one piece of loot you’ve had your eye on forever, but very few of us have probably ever spent two straight years trying to farm it as Asmongold did.

Logan Paul mindblown after pulling rare Pokemon cards worth $3000

Logan Paul has become an avid Pokemon card collector throughout the latter half of 2020, and treated fans of his Impaulsive podcast to watch him open a rare pack, the contents of which he was delighted with.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game originally got going in 1999 and now, over two decades later, is worth more than ever, with rare cards making sellers hundreds of thousands of dollars if they’ve kept their collection in good condition.

He recently revealed some of the collection he had been building up, including a first edition shadowless Charizard that could fetch anywhere between $40,000 to $60,000 at auction.

Letting his fans into the hobby, Logan opted to buy a pack of Base Set trading cards for $500 online and opened it live on Impaulsive.

Obviously, when you’re spending $500 on a single pack of cards, you’ve got to be pretty hopeful of the results, but Paul insisted he always gets his rarest cards from the seller he bought it from.

So, he opened them and revealed each card one-by-one, including a Squirtle which he expects to fetch around $200-300, perhaps more as he believes it to have a PSA grade of 10 — or, the best condition it could possibly be.

Alongside the regular Energy cards and some more Pokemon such as Gastly and Poliwhirl, Paul also packed a Blastoise, again expecting it to be PSA graded 10/10, which he says should fetch around $2500 — meaning the total value of the individual cards could fetch around $3000 if his valuations are correct.

Obviously, the valuations may be slightly off, but Logan has at least made his money back for this pack — and if he’s made a profit then more power to him.

There’s some serious money to be made in the Pokemon Trading Card Game now, especially as it enjoys somewhat of a resurgence of late, so it might be worth digging out those old cards and see what you’ve got laying around: you never know how much money you could be sitting on.
