Amateur Azerothian, Effraeti, and Tome of the Ancient have teamed up to bring Mog Madness to the WoW blogosphere! There will be five rounds, and each round will have a different “Mog Build” prompt. For the second round, the Mog Build criteria are these: Hunter or Druid (using class-appropriate gear type), must incorporate Glaive of the Pit/Marrowstrike as the weapon.
As it so happens, just a few weeks ago, I took my caster Druid, Kerisa, on a guild fun run night that started in Magtheridon’s Lair, then continued to Ulduar. The Glaive of the Pit dropped from Magtheridon, and I won the greed roll for it. Looking at that beautiful blue and gold weapon made me sad that polearms will never, ever be itemized for casters, because it matched what Kerisa was already wearing so perfectly!
Mixing blue and gold makes green, and, as it happens, there are a matching set of beautiful gold, green, and blue mail breastplate and leggings — the Netherstrike Breastplate and the Leggings of Beast Mastery.
Thunderbringer’s Guard, Pauldrons of the Promise, Netherstrike Breastplate, Dreadhawk’s Girdle, Leggings of Beast Mastery, Triumphant Gauntlets, Radiant Boots, Permafrost Cape, Glaive of the Pit
This is the second time I’ve wanted to make an outfit for Ketura using this combination of chestpiece and leggings. Unfortunately, the chestpiece is a Bind-on-Pickup crafted item. I’m beginning to think that perhaps I should drop Ketura’s Mining, level Leatherworking until she can craft the Netherstrike Breastplate, make it, and then drop Leatherworking and relevel Mining (her other profession is Engineering, and no way am I dropping and releveling that!).
Ketura is also extremely unlikely to ever visit Al’Akir in the Throne of the Four Winds, so if I ever make this outfit for her in-game, she will probably use the much easier to obtain Cloak of the Moon instead of the Permafrost Cape.
Suggested ranged weapons to use with this Transmogrification Template Kit:
Mark “S” Boomstick, Expedition Repeater, Moonbow
I have deliberately chosen simply-styled ranged weapons to not compete with the elaborate melee weapon and to keep the visual focus of the ensemble on the chestpiece and leggings when in combat.
As the Thunderbringer’s Guard is a Horde-only quest reward, I have used the neutral quest reward Princess Poobah’s Tiara for Kerithian.
