Jang'thraze the Protector is a main-hand sword that is best suited for a Warrior or Paladin, as a tanking weapon. While it's argued that this sword works for Rogues too, it should be noted that its lack of Stats and the fast Weapon Speed would dramatically reduce the DPS of a Rogue, due to its reduction of damage caused by Sinister Strike. Sword Rogues have many better swords available, notably the which is a quest reward from Maraudon and which also drops in Zul'Farrak from Antu'sul.
Jang'thraze the Protector can be combined with another Zul'Farrak sword, , using Call of Sul'thraze -- an on-click ability inherent in Jang'thraze -- to create the two-hand sword . This can only be done once and consumes the original swords.
Inspiration for this weapon and : This sword and it's 'mate' remind me of the Starsword and Powersword, which combine to form the Powerstar, found in the 1980s TV series: Blackstar http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackstar_(TV_series)
