Epic 2 Hand Spear Quest- Altrec Valley?

Classic Discussion
I vaguely recall being around level 60 and getting a quest nearby Turen Mill in the Alliance Entrance to Altrec Valley. The quest reward was a blue or purple Epic 2 Hand DPS Weapon.
I think I junked it soon after when I bought a Blade of Misfortune on the Auction House.

Was / will that Epic Two Hand Spear quest be in Vanilla? What were its stats? I think the quest to get it was kind of long and grindy but easy right?
It's with AV's release, which I don't know if it's going to be in at launch or not. I think you're thinking of Ice Barbed Spear.

Largely, each of the rewards were really good pre-raid BiS pieces. Or at least the crossbow (for hunters) and the spear is for most.

Pretty sure all you needed to do was win an AV.
Ice Barbed Spear

You had to win an AV match.

It will become available when the BGs, honor system, BWL, and ZG cluster of content is added (as of the current plan given at Blizzcon). That will be the first content change but as of Blizz-con they didn't have any sort of timeline for when they would be releasing the various stages just a "current thinking" of how stuff would be grouped together.

It was blue, Ice barbed spear correct?

So cool... if I can not mine enough ore or sell enough bars on the Aution House to buy an epic two hander sword than that is going to be my upgrade. It was sooooo hard getting a quality blue or purple sword in Vanilla.
Other people got it right, it was a amazing weapon at the level you could get it at, level 52 iirc. Its also the weapon that made the Arcanite Reaper go out of vogue due to mat costs vs IBS being free, well that and the Unstoppable Force but that took much more time to get.
Originally u got the spear for a quest to kill Korrak, they changed it a few months after to just get a win for it. Pretty sweet weps!

This is correct, except that the ‘Quest’ for it changed as well.

Upside was that I got a second one when I won AV....

Too bad I couldn’t dual wield them.

Arcanute Reaper was superior in every way, the higher top end damage was pure Win
