Hunter players may be a bit sad that they are not receiving many new ability changes with patch 9.1 Chains of Domination, although they do get their own unique legendary bow, that comes with a new ability.
Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper is a drop from the final boss inside the Sanctum of Domination Sylvanas Windrunner.
Players will need to defeat Sylvanas on Normal, Heroic, or Mythic difficulty in an attempt to receive the bow.
The bow will not be obtainable from Looking For Raid.
How To Unlock And Upgrade Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper In Chains Of Domination
Unfortunately, the bow has been confirmed to only drop at 233 item level no matter the difficulty, meaning if a player loots the bow on Heroic, they will need to farm out the upgrades for it.
A report on Wowhead states that a player has received a 246 Heroic bow this week, which indicates it may drop at its relevant item level now, although this is still to be confirmed.
Could this be because Mythic has now been cleared?
Blizzard has also started to send out upgrades to players who looted a Normal bow from Heroic from a report on Wowhead. If you received a low ilvl bow from Heroic, submit a ticket and have a GM assist you in receiving an upgrade.
Wraithwisp Sinew and Ethereal Fletching are two items that upgrade the 233 Bow to Heroic (246) and Mythic (259).
These items seem to replace the bow on the loot table once you have received it meaning they are just as hard to upgrade if a player is unlucky.
The on-use of the bow is roughly equivalent to a 239 item level weapon in Heroic, meaning better stat optimized and higher item levels weapons will come out ahead on DPS.
Players were disappointed with the final product, and hope to see some changes to make it more accessible soon.
The equip bonus of the bow is:
Gain the ability to fire a Wailing Arrow, which deals Shadow damage to your target and other nearby enemies and silences any creatures struck.
There is also a cloak that drops from the Slyvanas encounter, while usable for everyone, has a unique passive usable only by the Hunter class.
Every 5 shots, trigger Withering Fire, striking up to 5 enemies in front of you for Shadow damage.
It is important to note that while this is classified as a legendary item, it will not take over the crafted legendary slot and you will be able to use both.
It is a fun system for Blizzard to implement unique class legendary items, and we can potentially see more items follow this structure in the coming raids in the Shadowlands.
