The Blackrock Slicer
'The Nicker' Controversy
This axe was originally called The Nicker, presumably for its resemblance to a giant razor blade. After item-linking in trade chat became a meme of sorts for many servers (for the most part, originating with the linking of ) people started linking other items. One of these was The Nicker, for the racial innuendo in its name. As a result, it was renamed to The Blackrock Slicer. It kept the rename in Classic.
