Tauren male wearing the Black Grasp of the Destroyer

Black Grasp of the Destroyer is mail hand armor with strong anti-magical properties. For every successful melee or ranged attack, you gain 8 mana and your target loses 8 mana.


This item is crafted with Blacksmithing (300); taught by  [Plans: Black Grasp of the Destroyer].

Materials required:
Inv stone 15.png 8x [Large Obsidian Shard] Inv misc stonetablet 01.png 24x [Small Obsidian Shard]
Inv misc rune 05.png 8x [Enchanted Leather] Inv potion 41.png 1x [Flask of Supreme Power]


  • To take full advantage of the mana drain proc, the wearer might want to use a fast ranged or melee weapon. Dual wielding is ideal.
  • The mana drain can fail if the target has no mana or is immune to mana drain. Even in these cases, the wearer will gain 8 mana anyway.
