I had some anxiousness to get my previous post up before the patch because I knew that as soon as the patch came, I would be doing this:
Replica Five Thunders set with Spell Axe of the Speaker and Zulian Swirling Shield
What more appropriately named garb could a Shaman possibly wear to take on Lei Shen and the desperate Zandalari?
Pauldrons of the Furious Elements, Hauberk of the Furious Elements, Frostscale Belt, Natural Life Leggings, Grips of Nature’s Wrath, Spell Axe of the Speaker, Zulian Ward
The opening of a new Troll raid — what a perfect opportunity for Kamalia to don her set of the level 70 badge gear introduced with the Gods of Zul’Aman!
Defiler’s Mail Pauldrons, Dragonkiller Tunic, Warmonger’s Belt, Shifting Camouflage Pants, Gauntlets of Sniping, Ravager’s Sandals, Voodoo Hunting Bow
When I went looking for items to use with the level 85 T11-recolor Dragonkiller Tunic, the teal tones of the agility versions of the level 70 Zul’Aman mail coordinated excellently. The copper tones of the belt and boots provide a nice burst of complementary color and also tie in the bindings of the bow.
Sun, Moon, and Stars
Raven-Heart Headdress, Mantle of Autumn, Starry Robes of the Crescent, Moonrage Girdle, Stormrider’s Gloves (T11 Normal), Glaive of the Pit
One of the most exciting things about Patch 5.2 was the expansion of Transmogrification to allow all weapons that use the same animations to be cross-Transmogrified. I’ve long thought that the Glaive of the Pit coordinates with the Starry Robes of the Crescent very beautifully, but as a Balance Druid who will never legitimately equip a polearm because there are no +Int polearms, I couldn’t use this combination in a proper Transmogrification kit — until now!
So that’s what I did yesterday. I also went fishing with all of my alts currently in Pandaria, funneling their catches to my Monk, who is at the NEED MOAR CARPS stage of Sungshin Ironpaw‘s cooking training. But I didn’t go to the Isle of Thunder — I want to finish the Dominance Offensive storyline first, and at the rate I’ve been doing those dailies lately, it’ll probably be another few weeks before I do. I didn’t take over the farm — having finally capped out her 5.0 reps, Kam herself doesn’t need the work orders. And I didn’t even pick up a Mantid Sonic Locator to start digging up some new things — though I should do that sometime soon. The Transmogrifications were too exciting😛
