Laeleiweyn of World of Lae has kicked off a series of Alt Appreciation weeks to “celebrate all the classes!”
This week, it’s the Priests‘ turn in the spotlight.
When I began raiding, back in Burning Crusade, before Armor Specialization was introduced, Druids and Paladins wearing Primal Mooncloth were a common sight because it had the BEST stats for healing. It was such a beautiful set, but it was also BoP to the crafter and required the proper Tailoring specialization. I liked Kamalia being a Leatherworker, however, so all I could do was sigh longingly and plan for my Blood Elf Mage to pick up Primal Mooncloth specialization — even though it wouldn’t be optimal for her as DPS — if and when she ever managed to reach level 70.
I don’t remember whether or not Kaelinda managed to reach level 70 during Wrath of the Lich King, but she definitely didn’t get her Tailoring skill high enough to make the Primal Mooncloth set.
Then Cataclysm was announced, and I was excited to roll a Tauren Priest because now Tauren would finally have a cloth-wearing class.
(Speaking of racial classes and armor type distribution, if Blizz adds only one new class/race combination in the next expansion, it needs to be Gnome Hunter or Shaman, because Gnomes are the only race that does not yet have access to at least one class that wears each armor type.)
So I rolled my Tauren Priest, but I didn’t get much leveling done during Cataclysm itself. It’s been only recently, really, that I’ve put in a lot of play time with her. By the time Kaohana reached level 70 and got her Tailoring up to 375, however, I’d only managed to gather about half of the four dozen Primal Life required to craft the Primal Mooncloth set. Then I got busy doing other things with other alts. This week, therefore, I farmed Heroic Underbog with all my main-server level 90s. Now, I can wear that beautiful Primal Mooncloth set at last!
