Last weekend, I walked out of the Terrace of Endless Spring raid with Jin’ya, Orb of the Waterspeaker. In 5.1, they made a significant change to the staff design which could not be mistaken for anything other than a Sha-touched weapon, especially when it turns your Shadowfiend or Mindbender into one.

It’s a bit of a shame though as I did love the old look of it but I definitely feel like I’ve been seduced by the dark side using the staff as shadow.

Although even as Disc, I have a Sha-touched Shadowfiend.

Thanks to Nyxrinne for suggesting I try some Desecrated Oil.

The Equip effect leaves a lot to be desired though – Increases your movement speed by 10% while in Dread Wastes but I have to admit that the first time I saw my Mindbender pop out of the ground, it almost felt like another Archaeology dig.

Now all I need is the Crystallized Horror to go with it.
