WoW: A deadly whisper - Sylvanas' legendary bow has a name


In the Sanctum of Domination, the new raid in WoW patch 9.1, we can expect a very special final battle that many players have been looking forward to since Battle for Azeroth. For none other than Sylvanas Windrunner himself is trying to stop us at the top of Torghast. It seems that the Banshee Queen's grand vision of the dungeon master will cost her her last life


But the epic battle and accompanying backstory aren't the only highlights of the new raid. With a little luck, all hunters in the raid will be able to capture the legendary Bow of Sylvanas. This weapon has already caused some excitement in the community, after all, huntsmen will be the only class in patch 9.1 that will be allowed to carry another Legend

ary in addition to the "normal" Legendary item.

The secret is out

On the PTR server, the bow still has epic quality. The weapon drops in normal, heroic and mythic difficulty mode. LFR players go empty-handed! Source: buffed With the latest PTR update for patch 9.1, Sylvanas' bow finally got its own name: Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper

. We've known for a long time that Sylvanas' bow is named Death's Whisper. The Banshee Queen's subjects long ago reported the sinister aura that Sylvanas' bone bow emits. Even the Dark Princess herself was not entirely comfortable with her weapon; after all, the bow possessed something of a will of its own.

We don't know for sure if Deathwisper is simply the cursed version of Sunwalker's longbow, or a new bow that Sylvanas had made for herself after her death in Warcraft 3. The longbow with the Sunwalker crest once belonged to the first king of the High Elves, Dath'Remar Sunwalker. The weapon has been passed down since the founding of Quel'Thalas, until the heirloom ended up with Sylvanas Windrunner. In fact, Sylvanas' bow has only been mentioned a handful of times, and then it did not possess a Thalassian name.

Source: wowhead The design of the bow has been adapted to Sylvanas' Schlundoutfitt. Source: wowhead Matching the bow is a quiver that gives hunters more advantages.

So now, with "Rae'shalare", the bow gets its own name in Shadowlands, which sounds High Elven but has no meaning in Thalassic (or at least none that we currently know of). Perhaps Rae'shalare is a proper name that Sylvanas came up with himself. We certainly hope that with patch 9.1 we'll get more lore information on the bow and the developers will finally explain where the weapon originally came from.
