Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker

Submitted by Deolrin
This bundle is marked as approved. It works and satisfies the submission rules.
"Ragnaros the Firelord, and his lieutenants Garr and Baron Geddon, defeated Thunderaan, Prince of Air, during the war following the First Age of Creation. Ragnaros was unable to fully destroy Thunderaan’s essence, so he forced what little remained into a talisman of elemental binding and shattered it. He gave the two halves to his lieutenants. Ages passed, and somehow the talisman halves found their way into the hands of Highlord Demitrian, a follower of Thunderaan. He recombined the talisman but was unable to release his master. Instead, he did the best he could: He crafted a blade to serve as a vessel for his master’s essence.

Thunderfury is a vicious sword, crafted from elementium and containing a crackling electrical core that might be all that remains of Prince Thunderaan. The hilt is unusually long, wrapped in black dragon hide."


From WoWWiki

Please note - The screenshot is NOT accurate. In-game, there is a farseer's\shaman's missile in the "socket" and the lightning texture on the blade is animated. In addition, there is a blue omnilight emitting from the socket's center.

Attach to left or right hand.

Special thanks to Jigrael, who's model, "Lightning Elemental", I used in the screenshot. Also, special thanks to General Frank for showing me how to do animated textures. ...In addition, huge thanks to HappyTauren for telling me how to make the lightning animated texture effect better!

HUGE thanks and credits to Zeverens, for making the awesome texture! Major props to him!

Give credits to me(Deolrin or Debode) and Zeverens if you use this model in your map. Do NOT redistribute this model in any way. I do NOT want to see it make it's way to sites like ''Warcraft III Unlimited''.

    Is there a chance that you reduce (or make a version without?) the size of the lightning ball? For my personal taste it's too huge and doesn't fit in. But it may if it was a tad smaller.
    Apart from that it's, of course, awesome ;9

    well the animated texture doesn't flow that well..... somehow it needs to be sped up and also try to get rid of the weird white strip, which is because the animation just goes from one side to the other of the texture :/

    DEBODE, go to magos, go to texture manager, right click the ingame texture you're using (the lightning one) and then check WRAP WIDTH and WRAP HEIGHT. It will make the effect continuous and not bug. Also, awesome attachment, both of you.

    lawl, you need modeling but texturing is easier
    lets use paladin as example

    texturing:
    get gimp/photoshop/corel/blahblah
    alpha the sword
    save
    import to map (skin not the model)
    there, add it via item or ability or trigger

    The lightning on the blade now moves smoothly instead of moving, then having a long crapped out texture and then coming again.
