One of my big goals over the last few days was to get both Tallow and Belgrave through all four parts of Siege of Orgrimmar LFR. Both of them could use gear out of there, and instead of piece-meal like before, I wanted to clear all of the bosses during this reset. The other day I talked about how much success I had with Tallow in that he got both a mainhand and offhand weapon and two pieces of tier 16. Yesterday I may have just blown that completely out of the water. Previously on Belgrave I had gotten a shoulder drop, but was not using them as I had slightly better shoulders from flex. Christmas day when I got home that evening, I popped into LFR and it inspired yesterdays topic on a social justice system.
However even though it had some frustration I managed to get Garrosh to drop two of the tokens that could be turned into any set piece. I used those to give myself the tier 16 chest and legs, and then yesterday Nazgrim graced me with dropping the gloves token. Just like that over the course of two days my Deathknight is wearing nearly a full set of tier 16. I already had a helmet with the same graphic so for all intents and purposes I have a complete visual set. I am really not sure what I think about the set, because honestly it feels a little out of place for being a Deathknight set. Where are all the skulls?
Instead of being straight out of a deathmetal video… I guess I am fresh from some manga? I need to find a similarly mecha inspired two hander to go with it. Thinking about maybe one of the ones from Ulduar… like Abaddon from Yogg Saron. I am sure if I try hard enough I can find something suiting the look and feel of it. Maybe it is just that it looks goofy on a worgen. I remember seeing this in most of Qelric’s videos, and on her character it does not look half bad at all. I feel that is the problem with most bestial races… the armor either looks really amazing or really awful.
Graduating the Cataclysm
After finishing my tour of Siege of Orgrimmar for the week, I hopped over on Gloam and started working on him again. I guess in a way for the good of the various raids I have been participating in… I felt like I needed to try and gear both Belgrave and Tallow. In both cases I did very much so, and I figured I could take a break from LFR to work on my little rogue. I managed to push him last night from 83 to 85 and finish off his Cataclysm era Alchemy. I figure at some point soon I will farm up mass amounts of Pandaria materials and push him up in level to 600, but for now I am working on the leveling portion. I would really like to find a pair of Fists of Fate to level him to 90 with, however there have been absolutely none of the auction house of late. These carried my enhancement shaman all the way to 90, and I was still using them when I got my first epic weapon drop.
Instead in the mean time I guess I will make a pair of Ghost-Forged blades, which are not nearly as nice but should give me a decent boost through the Pandaria content. The only problem is each takes 2 Spirits of Harmony, which are bind on pickup. This means I will be out farming something that gives Black Prince reputation trying to collect four of them on my Paladin. For whatever reason the characters that need them, cannot get them to drop… whereas the characters that have literally NO use for them like my Inscriptionist has 200. This gives me a good excuse to get him to honored with the Black Prince, which is a normally tedious task. I did however make a complete set of leather gear on my leatherworker so as soon as the blades are acquired I can begin my push to 90.
Onwards to Joplin
Needing to wrap up quickly this morning as we have a bunch of running around to do. We are going to be running up to Joplin for a bit to check things out there. I didn’t figure I would get time to do a blog post, but after showering and getting ready I decided to try and rush one through. I had no clue what time we would be getting home, and after a day of running around the last thing I want to be is creative. Hopefully you all had a great Christmas, and hopefully the loot gods have been smiling on you as well.
