Inv sword 24

Duel wielding the Cruel Barb

The Cruel Barb is a one-handed sword that drops from Combat 15 Helix Gearbreaker in the Deadmines.


  • This item is not marked as unique and has a bonus to both hit and crit. As such it is an exceptional weapon to dual-wield making it desirable for Fury Warriors, Rogues (especially dual-sword combat-spec'd ones), and Hunters.
  • This is the offhand weapon of choice for Rogue twinks.
  • This item used to drop from Edwin VanCleef in the original Deadmines.

Patch changesEdit

  • Cataclysm-Logo-Small Patch 4.0.3a (2010-11-23): Attack power removed, replaced with hit and crit
