Got this link from a guildie, made me lol a lot. Poor little dk’s, awwww.

 Yes. Just yes.

When I first read about patch 4.3 I was a bit depressed, because let’s face it, we haven’t exactly ruled in Firelands, which means our gear will  be so so for the next raid instance and we will struggle even more. But then I read about the word that I will never ever be able to remember or pronounce, Transmogrification, which cheered me up.  There have been endless blue posts, guides and blog posts on them so I think everyone who is a bit more than average interested in WoW already know what it’s about at this point. And perhaps just as excited as I am!

Many years, ago, my main was a clueless hunter. I didn’t know what a tier piece was. I didn’t know what a raid was. I didn’t know anything really, apart from knowing I was the best looking hunter in Azeroth. This is pretty similar to me in real life,  looking back on pictures from my teen years, where I then thought my, erm, somehow original and colourful outfits were the sickness, but now are making me gasp and think “what was I thinking??!”. Pretty much same thing in-game. I wore silver hot pants, a golden breastplate and red / golden boots. Actually all my armor was a mix of these colours, I looked like a mix of a spaceman and a teletubby. With, I must add, a very very slutty twist! I am no longer sure it was that good :s

Everything looks good on shammies. Tier set 1 is ofc no exception

However, there are quite a few outfits out there that are well good-looking. I must admit, being a dress collector and all, I’m a little jealous of the clothies, since they can wear the prettiest dresses and robes when they are raiding, while I need to find the best mail sets. Because from what I have read in the large jungle of posts on trans- uh- mogrification, you can’t wear mail and turn it into a cloth look. Which is sad panda news since I was already fantasising about this “angel meets butterfly meets fairy” outfit, based on leather and cloth, that would look so fabulous on my shammy that raid leader would probably command me back to Stormwind and change it back asap, since everyone would be losing focus on raid /nods.

Still, I will find some nice outfits, and my outfitter addon will be busier than ever from now. The first sets I want to get are the first two tier sets, Earthfury and The Ten Storms. I haven’t been too interested collecting all tier pieces until now, simply because I don’t have the bank space for it. With the incoming void storage this problem will hopefully be solved. No matter how much I clean up and organise, it’s hard for me to keep bags, both actual bags and the bank ones, neater than this:

In my bags I carry my offspec hear and a full set of pvp gear, a collection of items and armor I like to play with when I’m bored and of course the needed potion, reagents and mats. In my bank, pretty much the same, everything I don’t use on a daily basis is sent to bank alt, but there are things I want to keep close for different reasons, mostly sentimental ones. So void storage will be good.

I have been running Molten Core (tier 1 sets) and Blackwing Lair (tier 2 sets) recently, and have about half set of each. I think that I will be less bored with the upcoming transmogrification (seriously, who picked that name??) change, since armor and how it looks on your character have always been one of the things I appreciate the most in this game. Molten Core can definitely be 2 manned by 2 dps’ers, doesn’t hurt if at least one of them is a tank or have the ability to throw some heals. Can probably be soloed my most classes also, at least if you are the lucky owner of some nice gear and / or skills. Blackwing Lair should require at least 3 players, although I think it would work out better with 4+.

It’s pretty fun, fast and easy and apart from tier pieces drops of bosses there are boe blue items, gold, cloth and quite a few valuable items of interest. A very nice thing to do outside raids. I have noticed people are slightly stressed and trying to get all their armor sets before October, when patch 4.3 is expected. I don’t understand this, getting everything ready before it has even started? I’ll be happy if I can put on tier 2 or 2 set at release, but will spend time after hunting for more armor that can make my shammy look even more tasty than now (if that’s even possible).

Fun fun fun! Thanks Blizz 😀
