MoP Fashionista: Druid Challenge Mode

In Tech on March 31, 2012 at 7:44 am

Druid challenge mode gear. I think there’s a graphical error in the file for the green one. Can we say shiney gold abs? Anyway not liking this quite as much as I did Tier 13 for druids.

MoP Fashionista: DK Challenge Mode

In Tech on March 30, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Again I think my favorite here is the Blue set. The shoulders appear to have the heads of femurs on them. Overall I liked them.

MoP Fashionista: the basics of Mail & Plate

In Tech on March 26, 2012 at 5:42 am

 

Mail sets

These are listed as reputation sets for some reason.

Mists_of_Pandaria_Day_Two__Quest_Armor_Sets,_Challenge_Mode_Sets,_and_3D_Models_-_Wowhead_News-20120325-184445.jpg

My favorite is the red coloration.

The yellow one looks really nice as well. No idea yet which will be the Int mail and which will be the Agi mail.

Plate sets

I’ve got one plate wearer at 85 & another at 82. For Set 1 I’m really liking the gold look, very bright & shiney. Not sure that it will work for my DK, but possibly awesome on my paladin. But overall I enjoy this set.

Set 2 I’m still deciding on. Much more sinister looking.

I enjoy the green & red, but the purple looks like it works very well for a DK.

MoP Fashionista: the basics of Cloth & Leather

In Tech on March 25, 2012 at 4:32 pm

So I’m not in World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandera Beta yet, but I’ve been keeping up with the armor sets that have been coming out. I must say I’m enjoying several aspects of the designs of the new sets.

Cloth sets

I love the helm with this set. Very simple yet works incredibly well with the theme. My first love was the White one.

Wowhead_News-20120325-173335.jpg

But then I fell for the red one.

Wowhead_News-20120325-173134.jpg

But then again the Blue one is growing on me.

Wowhead_News-20120325-173422.jpg

Leather sets

The one is my main & my main alt’s concern (rogue + boomkin/resto druid) so I have much love & interest in these sets.

Leather 1 to me comes across as very blah. It does have a stylized Shogun Helm, but then again I’m not a big fan of that. I really disliked the Light set & also didn’t care for the Red set. However the Brown & Dark were the least offensive to my personal style & there’s very little difference here between sets so I’m just posting screenshots of the ones I liked best.

Wowhead_News-20120325-174234.jpg

Leather set 2 was the one I was really looking forward to.

Wowhead_News-20120325-175059.jpg

It’s got an interesting look with the single shoulder plate.

Wowhead_News-20120325-175223.jpg

The helm I don’t really care for but it will be hidden for Book.

Wowhead_News-20120325-175442.jpg

The hardest part may be choosing a color to wear. I want it all!

But I must say that I adore the Indigo.

Tier 13 Fashionista — The Paladins

In Tech on October 11, 2011 at 11:52 am

Dear Paladins, I’m jealous. I want this. But then again since my paladin alt is currently level 64 it is possible for me to get her leveled & into the LFR to get at least the beginner Tier 13. You get wings made of plate metal with pretty gems inlaid in. They wings could have been smaller, but overall they still work.

Guess what guys, NO SKIRT! I always think it’s weird to see a skirt in mêlée. Druids get a pass since if you’re in mêlée usually you’re in kitty or bear form (Let’s put a skirt on a bear!…. On second thought let’s not). But ret & prot pallys in skirts make me want to say “Get in the back & heal.”

The ladies are showing the bare midriff. While for art work it looks gorgeous. But you know stomach wounds are nasty….

Also they slightly changed the chest artwork for the ladies to have the horns encircle the breasts. While October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month (SAVE THE BOOBIES!), this is a little disconcerting in the way they are designed. I’m a little weirded out by them.

I saw some people comment on the boots looking like the backs were made of leather. My response? More comfort. Do you really want to be walking around in metal boots all day? Just slap some plate segments on the important parts & walk around in some very comfortable leather! (this ad is brought to you by the Leather is Better Rogue department)

I’m level 10… Where to next?

In formspring.me on December 31, 2010 at 5:58 am

Don’t know where to go next? At any level just swing by Stormwind, Darnassus, Ironforge or Exodar for Alliance near the business districts of the city are Hero’s Call Boards. They will give you level appropriate quests to go to a zone where it is level appropriate for you to quest.

For you on the Horde side of things the Horde Cities have the equivalent called the Warchief’s Command Boards.

So now the easy answer is go to the Boards to see where you should go. (& as a tip they sometimes have different offerings on different continents). These boards work all the way up to level 85. So have fun questing.

Ask me about World of Warcraft or the Cataclysm Beta.
