Back in 2006 I was playing a horde orc hunter on the server Shattered Hand EU.
I played quite a lot of BG’s and I remember constantly meeting an alliance nelf hunter named Thechosen with full T1 and a Thunderfury!!

Over the past years I’ve kept asking myself, how on earth was that hunter allowed to receive a Thunderfury. No way that all the tanks and (rogues?) already had one.

What do you guys think??

He was the chosen one...maybe a eogistic guild leader?
You can only speculate now, but there are some stories.

Maybe they had a dkp system.

A lot of hunters were able to purchase the bindings with DKP in the very beginning before people really knew what the weapon was. Once guilds started figuring it out, the priority changed.

I've heard of some guilds giving a binding to a hunter before they knew what it was ("Surely a hunter could use it" or some reasoning like that). Perhaps he had one and then managed to get the other through whatever means?

Most people most likely never saw it as a high TPS wep and instead a wep based purely on its proc. Im sure some idea's were primary on wingclip spamming the proc on mobs or PvP...Or whoever was willing to farm all the mats. Guilds back in the day weren't exactly the most "supportive" when it came to expensive items like raid mats and 100 arcanite bars as a lot of people struggled to get a epic mount back in the day and since bindings were put in the first raid tier...Most casuals players actually saw them drop.

Either lack of knowledge or a very egoistic Hunter guild / raid leader... or a ninja.

I highly doubt that even the top guilds were able to give Thunderfury to ALL of their warriors / rogues in Vanilla.

So I'll speak about my experience with Tfury priority. I come from a more serious guild than usual, the benefit our war tank would typically get from tfury is not that much. Our tanks were usually always on top of threat regardless of tfury or not. If they weren't we'd just ask fury warrior to be more vigilant of their threat and use threat diminishers. We would give the weapon to whoever used their DKP for it.

Right, but were your tanks' threat really that much of a non-issue that a maxed out rogue / DPS warrior WITH thunderfury could still not pose a threat - threat-wise? Because the proc of TF also produces its own threat.

Yikes... We're letting this guy write guides and linking them to players? Misinformation.

My guild was perhaps a special case, but no, dps pulling too much threat/aggro was never an issue. Everyone knew what they were doing. There's many ways to curb threat, especially on Alliance. We did have a tfury rogue, he would just Vanish/get BOP if such a bad case of threat happened which was very rare.

I heard that hunter received the quest items because he was the one that paid the most via DKP. At the time nobody knew what the mats were for so it was a roll of the dice whether it would even be useful to any specific class.

This would be the case in a guild full of memes that are performing suboptimally. For most guilds TPS will be the biggest variable in bottleknecking your raids DPS. The tanks TPS is the most important factor when considering gearing your team for progression.

There are better weapons out there and they scale with spell damage stuff.
