Last year, I got the Frostscythe on Elfi when it was a slight upgrade for her so I wore it for a few weeks just to make people jealous and then I threw it in the bank. But of course, now that the Midsummer Fire Festival is upon us again I totally dug it out of the bank, brushed it off and transmogged that bitch faster than you can say “wow, she really transmogged that bitch fast”. While I do think it looks pretty cool, it’s not my preferred weapon transmog and I’ll likely change back in a few weeks. Until then, I’m going to do nothing but stand in Stormwind and make sure everyone that walks by without one gets a good eyeful. 😛
Obviously I’m just joking (totally not joking) about that because I am not the type of person who spends a lot of time bragging and trying to make people feel bad. By the way, have I mentioned yet that my Death Knight got the Frostscythe Saturday night on her very first Ahune kill ever? Yep. There won’t be any pictures of her like the one above though, because she couldn’t equip it. That’s right, most people can’t get one to drop and I’m vendoring mine. Kinda sad.
Really the only reason I am even running the holiday dungeon every day is for the chance at the Ice Chip pet. I already had my Frostscythe from last year and while the Valor Points are nice I could always get them elsewhere. I just like collecting pets. I realized this morning I have a level 90 druid on the Horde side who’s never killed Ahune and I should totally be doing that fight on all 3 of my level 90 toons if I wanted to maximize my chances. (Yes, I’m a dork and rarely think to have my other toons do stuff). It was a painful 28 minute queue, but the fight itself went pretty quick. My Troll doesn’t get played very much so she has pretty crappy gear still and her dps isn’t anything to write home about. Which is why I was excited the cloak in the chest was an upgrade for me and I was the only one who selected “need”. So my gear improved. I didn’t get the pet, but I’ve still got plenty of time to run ALL THREE toons through every day for a while. Oh, and did I mention that Kristalys also received a Frostscythe? Hahahahahaha. It’s like a Frostscythe Frenzy up in my world. The good news is, unlike the DK, my Troll Druid can and will actually use it. In fact, it was a pretty significant weapon upgrade for her. Check out the bling.
So the reason for the title of this post is because I have been slowly leveling up a Death Knight for the purpose of mining ore for my main to use for transmuting. Obviously I chose a DK because you get to skip ahead 55 levels. I made her a Night Elf so I could have pink hair. These things are important. Months ago I had worked pretty steadily at getting her into Pandaria so I could get my grubby hands on ghost iron ore. But then I got lazy with her and my leveling slowed way down. Finally I realized I could gather more ore quicker if I’d just buckle down and get to level 90 so I could fly in the new zones. Last night was the magic moment. I finally hit 90 AND I got the Dynamic Duo achievement – which I didn’t even realize existed until last night. I mean, I already had two level 90 characters so I didn’t realize. Obviously the other two level 90s are both the same class so of course I didn’t get the achievement previously.
But the point is, now I don’t ever have to DK again. I can just fly around and gather ore and cut jewels. Though to be honest, I may at some point decide to do more with her. I started off hating melee fighting. I like to stand back and throw things from a distance so I can see more of what’s going on instead of having my face in someone’s crotch all the time. But I will admit after actually running a few dungeons on her to make 88 – 90 go by faster, I got to where I kind of liked my face in someone’s crotch. Errr… wait… you know what I mean. So maybe one day I will decide to do more end-game stuff with her. But for now it is time to work on another lowbie alt. I think I’ll start on my baby Shaman.
In other good news, being done leveling and getting new gear constantly meant I could finally assemble the transmog outfit I gathered while questing in the Outlands. It’s red … SURPRISE!
This is just going to be a quick blurb of a post. I had planned a much bigger post on the subject for this past Monday but things have decided to blow up every night at work so far and my entire schedule has been thrown off. So I promise sometime in the future, when I can provide screenshots and more details about my character specifically, I will revisit this topic.
Oh wait, you don’t even know what the topic is yet. It’s transmogging. I have finally caught the fever. It’s been all the rage for quite a while now with most everyone else in Azeroth but I just never really had the energy to worry about it. I imagine that is tied to my previously mentioned “lack of love” for my main.
But now I’m rolling with a new Elfi and even though she’s low-level I am already ooohing and aaahing over the few pieces of green gear she’s gotten and tucking away the ones I like the looks of in my tiny ass bank slots. I really need to make some gold and buy more bank and bag space. So anyway, yeah, I have finally gotten excited about transmogging. I do realize that by the time I get to 85 with her I will find so many more pieces I like better than the ones I’m stashing now, but I figure I should save the pretty ones just in case. I mean, you never know what I might end up liking.
Alright, that’s it for now. Not really exciting for you guys to read but I am just thrilled to not only be really happy with my choice of new character but to also have a new in-game hobby that entertains me.
And of course, I know all you good people probably already know about this site, but in my new found love of mogging I have become addicted to Go Mog Yourself. If you don’t know about it or have never checked it out… RUN THERE IMMEDIATELY. You won’t be disappointed.
