I was a huge fan of my previous transmog outfit, but it seems like everywhere I go there is another clothie jackin’ my style! So I decided to switch it up a bit and went with this instead.
Yeeeep! A recolor of the Priest t1 set. It took about a day or two of grinding Outland instances, which also yielded a ton of Netherweave cloth. Naturally all of that went towards Netherweave bags to make some gold off of.
Pretty snazzy, eh? Here’s where you can get yours.
Helm: Collar of Command from from Shirrak the Deadwatcher in Normal Auchenai Crypts.
Shoulders: Pauldrons of Sufferance from Epoch Hunter in Normal Old Hillsbrad Foothills.
Chest: Raiments of Divine Authority from Keli’dan the Breaker in Normal Blood Furnace.
Waist: Mindfire Waistband also from Keli’dan the Breaker in Normal Blood Furnace.
Gloves: Royal Gloves from your local AH.
Weapon: Blade of the Witching Hour from Theralion and Valiona in Bastion of Twilight
Offhand: Inscribed Jade Fan from your favorite scribe or the local AH.
As you see, I didn’t bother with pants or the boots because you don’t see either thanks to the robe and the fact that Trolls never wear shoes.
So that’s what I’m rockin’ lately. What are you wearing?
This week’s Blog Azeroth Shared Topic comes to us via Effraeti.
Professions are fun for some and a necessary evil for others.
Some of us have farming professions. Some of us have crafting professions. Some of us have a little bit of everything! Professions are leveled because they fit our style of play, help us in raiding, allow us to outfit our alts, and make us money.
What professions do you have on your main? Do his/her professions fit their personality? Why did you choose them? If you chose professions based on your character and not on gaming needs, would that change some of their professions they use?
I have every profession represented in the Fay Family but my main, Fayona, sticks to Jewelcrafting and Tailoring as her primary professions and they definitely fit her personality. Fay definitely loves her bling and constructing the finest threads to strut, mirror image and blink her way across Azeroth. Plus, remember in those days when JC actually could make you a little gold? Quite nice, wasn’t it? And yes, Fay is definitely a fan of making large sums of gold to fund she and the rest of her sassy little posse.
And I don’t know if you heard the dirty rumor about the bad ass Jeweled Onyx Panther mount in Mists of Pandaria? Wellllll, the Fay Family is definitely looking forward to slangin’ a few of those across the local auction house.
Also, quick note. This week’s Sevenly cause benefits Cure and, “will help support a disfigured child to finally live a normal life. For every $1,100 we raise, CURE International will provide a life-altering surgery for 1 of these children. Our goal is to fund the surgeries of 15 children!”
They’ve also added a bunch of new items to purchase; tote bags, sassy sweatshirts and phone covers! So now you’ve got a variety of ways to benefit a charity that resonates with you. As always, DO GOOD!
It’s no secret that in and out of Warcraft I love me some shiny things. I’d been browsing Etsy looking for small thread bracelets and leather cuffs to add to my growing collection for a while and I finally broke down and treated myself to a few.
The small star is made of hematite and the giraffe I bought just as a fun little reminder of my favorite animal. Lizzy does a number of wish bracelets with cute little charms in a variety of thread weights and colors. Her store can be found over on Etsy @ Believe in Good Karma.
Once again, Cymre brings the AWESOME by way of Transmog and comics, both of which I’m a huge fan. Check out her Super Sunday series of Superhero inspired transmog and ‘mog your way to greatness. And as always, ‘mog hard or go home!
Rounding things out in the Twitterverse, I bring you my friend and Co-host of Joe of the Joeshow has been takin’ us back to the old school.
It was interesting to see many of the answers given between the followers we share. Plus, it gave that warm and cozy feeling of when we were all little Warcraft n00bs running around the vast world of Azeroth. I had to do a little research because my first character has gone through a few changes since her initial creation. She started off as Forsaken on August 24, 2008 when I received my own copies of Warcraft for my birthday. Before this, I’d been playing on a friend’s account and rolled more toons than I can recall. Anyways, at the time she was named Joanrivaz (natch) and hit level 80 on December 21, 2008. Since then she’s been race changed to Troll and named Fayyaza and now is chillin’ on Madoran melting faces as a Draenai in a Twitterfriend’s ™ guild until Mists of Pandaria drops.
So what about you? What was your first max level character’s name and level? Hook me up in the comments!
If Blizzard added your main as an NPC in WoW, where would they be located and what would be their function? Give us a shot illustrating the fact.
I’m definitely the typical female Warcraft player by way of pet and mount collecting. But I’ve also got this semi-endearing, streak of sass that oftentimes inhabits my body come raid time. Let’s face it, raiding can be high stress and oftentimes (at least in my guild) there are people flipping out. During those times the sass in me comes out in full force a la the Incredible Hulk. And much like Mr. Hulk, it may be destructive, it’s rarely pretty, but it gets the job done and oftentimes brings a chuckle or two. Therefore, if an NPC of my main in game existed I’d be Fayona, Dash Sass Vendor.
Guild members raging in Mumble? Pug raider bragging about experience? “That guy” delaying the raid? LFR noobs gettin’ you down? Visit Fayona in Dalaran for your Dash of Sass! Just one potent charge will be all it takes to keep the raid orderly, moving and in check! *snapsnapsnap*
You’ll be able to find Fayona and her potent item in Dalaran on the balcony across from the bank. Why? Because Dalaran holds her fondest memories! Plus, she’ll never cower in fear of some Alliance dirtbag killing her. What was that you say? No one goes there any more? Well, maybe if you’re lucky another kind mage will port you there. After all, come Mists of Pandaria, we’ll no longer need reagents!
And when you visit her, remember she’s always fashion forward. So transmog in advance with pet to match and get one of the most necessary items for raiding.
“Every two years, the Spirits of Competition grow especially fervent, and draw close to the mortal realm. During such times, members of both the Alliance and Horde can honor the spirits and earn Competitor’s Tabards by seeking to defeat one another in the battlegrounds. For victory in competition, they can also earn the spirits’ favor in the form of a prized gold medal – and the special pet it summons.”
Despite the tooltip saying that the event would occur every two years, the last time this event happened was in 2008 with the Beijing Olympics. I’d been playing Warcraft very actively at this point for about 6 to 8 months, if I remember correctly. The game was a lot different pre-BC and really didn’t hold my attention all too much because of a lot of walking, wand specs and the overwhelming urge to explore every area of the map. So needless to say, PvP wasn’t really my thing at the time and that’s what this achievement involved.
A few guildies received the in-game pet and tabard and I remember being green with envy, wishing that I was one of the “cool kids.” Well, four years later the summer Olympics are upon us, this year in London. The Fay-family is waiting with baited breath to see what offering Blizzard will bestow upon us. Will we get another shot at an Olympic themed tabard and pet? Or will we be subjected to another disappointing tabard with a duration?
I’ve got my Troll fingers crossed, mon.
All three of them.
Got pics of your tabard and pet? Show em off in the comments!
How appropriate after my Epic Movie Day.
I re-rolled another priest on my home server of Korgath to have another Enchanter come MoP and instead of questing the day away I’ve been doing low level PvP. This latest batch of lowbies concentrated more on killing the other team rather than capping the flags. Flag 1. Ran it in with a Rogue friend. Flag 2. Ran it alone. Flag 3 was picked up by a Hunter and the ring leader of “LOL LET’S KILL THE OTHER TEAM.” He also got mad when I stopped healing everyone to get flags 1 and 2. Come flag 3, he’d grabbed it and started farming kills demanding that I heal him. I did it for a bit until I ran a little low on mana and he refused to LoS for a bit to let me drink.
Luckily the other team was more than likely raging mad and I swooped the flag up and ran it in to whispers of teammates asking if they could cap it or asking me to wait to cap so they can farm more kills. Pshha, screw that. I’ve healed you and capped the first two flags? This cheevo is mine!
Running as fast as they can Iron man lives again!
