South Park sword in WoW
You knew it was coming. In South Park's World of Warcraft episode, Stan Marsh uses the specially-crafted Sword of a Thousand Truths to slay an otherwise unstoppable griefer. Now that the closed Burning Crusade beta is underway, testers have discovered the sword for sale from a merchant - "Finely crafted to Salzman's specification." Joystiq has confirmed the sword's existence with Blizzard. The weapon is apparently intended as a reward for gladiators in the new Arena PvP mode. Unlike the fictional sword, however, the real one doesn't cause instant mana burn or 120 points of damage per second. Click below to see bigger screenshots.
