I am using the titansteel bonecrusher, it's slow and does more dps.

I HATE heroic UP. Dang sword willnot drop.
PUGin for this run sucks - I have more failed attempts than I care to admit.

Toon's name is Gafn check out my armory...

27.3K HP 23K armor D: 22.4, P: 18.6 B: 23.2

Do I really need this dang sword?
I am running Naxx 10 and 25 weekly farming for emblems and drops.
I am in bad need of a new trinket and a new chest plate.

Botom line - do I need the sword?

If you don't need the defense then you don't need the sword. you will get the naxx 10 one soon enough.

I ran for a hell of a long time w/ blue quality swords on both my tanks and was main tanking Naxx-25 and into Ulduar 10 (shamefully) before I finally got a drop to replace them in Naxx-25 (Broken Promise in both cases). You don't NEED Red Sword of Courage.

Sounds great - I really have learned to hate UP with a passon.
Def is 540, no issues there.

Thanks for feedback.

I was MT on full clears of Naxx 25 with the blue quality Inafantry Assault Blade and I never had any problems. I ran UP religiously and it was miserable, often going in with under geared dps and wiping on Skadi multiple times. It took forever for that danged sword to drop. Bottom line though is you don't need it. Get the one Stephanius linked above from just doing dailies. Or pug Ulduar 25. Titanguard seems to have a really high drop rate and it drops on the first boss.
