Get those Scarlet Monastery/Scholomance drops!


Patch 5.0.4 will soon be upon us (August 28th), ushering in new goodies like AOE looting, revamped talent systems, and account-wide achievements. However, one potentially unfortunate feature is that we might get the new versions of Scarlet Monastery and Scholomance.

Which is awesome, don't get me wrong (LILIAN VOSS!!) but it would also mean that our window to nab any cool drops from the current versions of these dungeons is fast closing!

There's a lot of interesting gear from both dungeons, with Scholomance sporting a HUGE loot table (and for many of the drops, an exceptionally annoying "chance to drop from any of the six "instructor" bosses" setup). I highly recommend taking a look for yourself, as this might be the last chance to get some of these pieces!

Scarlet Monastery loot table - Scholomance loot table

Here's what I've been farming the last few days, with my usual inclination towards weapons and unique appearances.


Scarlet Monastery

Torturing Poker - 1h dagger
Drops from Interrogator Vishas (Graveyard)

This fun dagger is identical to the BoE off-hand frill Rod of Molten Fire, so rogues AND casters can "dual-wield" these!
Ravager - 2h axe
Drops from Herod (Armory)

Shares a model with a handful of other 2h axes, but very easily farmed.
Herod's Shoulder - Mail shoulders
Drops from Herod (Armory)

Very distinctive due to its single-shoulder appearance. Identical to the heirloom mail shoulders, Champion's Herod's Shoulder, so if you already have the heirloom one, no need to farm the normal version.
Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade - Tabard
Drops from the trainees that attack after Herod

Unique, great-looking tabard. Might be available in the new version, but I'm not going to take the chance.
Hand of Righteousness - Main hand mace
Drops from High Inquisitor Whitemane (Cathedral)

Common but popular model. Probably the easiest way of obtaining it.
Whitemane's Chapeau - Cloth head
Drops from High Inquisitor Whitemane (Cathedral)

Very distinctive headpiece. It will probably be in the new Monastery, given how iconic it is, but easy enough to grab the old one to be safe.
Aegis of the Scarlet Commander - Shield
Drops from Scarlet Commander Mograine (Cathedral)

Nearly unique model, very distinctive. Get it!
Gauntlets of Divinity - Mail hands
Drops from Scarlet Commander Mograine (Cathedral)

Often overlooked, these red gloves have nice detailing, and go very well with the various red-colored mail sets.
Mograine's Might - 2h mace
Drops from Scarlet Commander Mograine (Cathedral)

Unique model! Pretty fancy. Get it while you can!


Scholomance

When an item drops from "the Instructors", it means the item has a chance to drop from any of Doctor Theolen Krastinov, Lord Alexei Barov, Instructor Malicia, The Ravenian, Lady Illucia Barov and Lorekeeper Polkelt, the six bosses preceding Darkmaster Gandling.
Ancient Bone Bow - Bow
Drops from the Instructors

Great bow model, though it shares a model with the heirloom Charmed Ancient Bone Bow.
Hammer of the Vesper - 1h mace
Drops from the Instructors

Only ONE-HAND version still available - the other items that use this model are Main hand maces.
Ebon Hilt of Marduk - 1h sword
Drops from Marduk Blackpool

Shares a model with some other swords, but this is the only dark and black version.
Gravestone War Axe - 2h axe
Drops from Kirtonos the Herald

TOMBSTONE AXE. Must-have for any Forsaken.
Frightskull Shaft - 2h mace
Drops from Rattlegore

A skull and spinal cord! Another hilarious/appropriate Forsaken weapon.
Clutch of Andros - Cloth belt
Drops from Kirtonos the Herald

A simple but sharp looking black/purple belt. Goes nicely with a lot of darker robes.
Necropile Robe - Cloth robe
Drops from the Instructors

Nice dark SLEEVELESS robe, which you don't see that often.
Stoneform Shoulders - Plate shoulders
Drops from Kirtonos the Herald

A very common model, except this is the only version in the game that is PLATE. Noteworthy!
Bloodmail Legguards - Mail legs
Drops from the Instructors

The only(?) plain black mail pants, believe it or not! A must-have for your mogging closet!
Deathbone Girdle - Plate belt
Drops from the Instructors

Nice black and white color scheme, though the skull is a little garish.
Deathbone Gauntlets - Plate hands
Drops from the Instructors

Very elegant design and nice colors. Big fan of these gloves.
Deathbone Chestplate - Plate chest
Drops from the Instructors

Honestly? I don't really care for this set, but figured I'd grab it while I still can.
Deathbone Legguards - Plate legs
Drops from the Instructors

Matching the above chestpiece. Oddly, the Wraithplate Leggings also drop from Jandice Barov and has an identical model.

There's not much time left! Get farming!

    Sholo-Skolo!

    I used the Clutch of Andros in a transmog for my mage with Queen Azshara's Dressing Gown. It's a perfect match!

    Also, I NEED THOSE BLACK PANTS! Gah.

    Thanks for writing all of this up, Rads. :D

    (Yes, I left the "e" out of Rads because I'm Mumble).

    Got my tux pants a few days ago, phew!
    Arvash, don't worry about the shield, unless you prefer your items to be authentic - the Bloodforged Shield is identical: http://www.wowhead.com/item=14954
