Focused Fire Chat - Weapons of Sorrow

Alright guys and gals, I know that I have not posted here quite as often I used to - things have been uber crazy! I was on an episode of Focused Fire Chat the week before last were we discussed Vex. I gave two big shot-outs to +DBMgamer and this community, cause this is still home to me. 

So! With that said, surprise, I am going to be on again next week! This time discussing Weapons of Sorrow and I would love to get some input from our G+ community in there.

To get everyone started that my not be familiar with what a Weapon of Sorrow is, I give you the in-game flavor text for the Year One bounty A Light in the Dark
"The Weapons of Sorrow were born from forbidden use of the Hive's dark power. We thought them eradicated. But recent developments suggest one of these weapons may still exist in the Hive's Summoning Pits."

The above bounty/quest yielded the infamous Thorn, which we all know as a Weapon of Sorrow. Another known Weapon of Sorrow is Necrochasm. We are theorizing that Touch of Malice is also a in this family as well, since it meets the definition from the bounty above. There has been much discussion over other weapons, such as Bad JuJu, Red Death and most any Crota's End or King's Fall weapons. Not to mentioned the possibility of Black Spindle. Why these weapons, you might ask? Because they were all altered through Hive Magic.

Example: Did you know that The Black Spindle was given to Crota's sister's Ir Halak and Ir Anûk by Oryx, because The Black Hammer was deemed unworthy of them?

Black Spindle Flavor Text
Ir Halak and Ir Anûk laugh at Crota.
Finality is a child's plaything,
Fit for one such as Crota,
They say.

No Hammer for the Unraveler and the Weaver,
But a Spindle, wound with woe.
For their foes,
No end of suffering.

This discussion is based on the fact that Oryx made The Black Spindle, as well as Crota made The Black Hammer. If a Hive god made the weapon or altered an existing weapon, does that deem it a Weapon of Sorrow? We don't know, but it makes for one hella good conversation! I want to hear what everyone here has to say, so... Go!

NOTE: This episode will air live, next Wednesday night at 10pm CST.

Did you guys know that the first auto rifle you pick-up, as a new guardian - the Khovostov 7G-02, has lore ties to Rasputin? Weapon and item lore in this game is just unreal! The stories of these two real-life people are just breath taking. Personal, I knew of the "real" Rasputin from other in-game research, but had no idea Khovostov was a real person, let alone the fact that he had dealings with each Rasputin. Mind=Blown!

This entry merely documents their political relationship, not the stories. It's an item wiki after all, not a script for an upcoming documentary.
