Darkside of the Toons


So, quite some time ago I picked up the Shield of Impenetrable Darkness during a Laid Back Raid.  I had always meant to make an outfit for it, complimenting it with the Crystal Spire of Karabor.  Today was to be that day.  All I needed was the legs and gloves and I was set.  Husband of Ysera’s Daughter happened to be on and made me some Vicious Ornate Pyrium Legguards and Boots.  I then hit the JP vendor for a set of Bladebreaker Gauntlets and was good to go.  Or, rather, I thought I was.  I realized I still needed the Wailing Nightbane Pauldrons from The Unforgiven in Stratholme.  Fortunately it only took killing him twice to get them.

However, you’ll notice in the picture Saintvache isn’t sporting a Mace.  That’s because of a very annoying transmog limitation.  You see, you cannot put a Main Hand item over a One Hand item that you’re holding in your main hand.  So, that idea went out the window (no 85 Maces on the AH either at the time).  So, his tanking look remains the same as it’s been for the past six months.  Instead, I took his healing gear and knowing he was holding a sword grabbed The Turning Tide from his bank.  The other pieces of the outfit are Bogslayer Breastplate, Gilded Thorium Cloak (which dropped last night during a Kara run with Ratshag, Helke, and a few more), Vicious Pyrium Belt, and Heroic Skullcap.  I used the Argent Crusade Tabard to cap it off.  Made him just a hint less of a Death Knight.  And yes, as I pointed out to Arvash this morning, in pure ass-backwardness my tank outfit is light and my healing outfit is dark.

Now I no sooner finished that and switched over to Larfleeze to see what the Runetotem Auction House had for me to discover (cheap Primordial Rubies was the answer), when I came across my first Jeweled Onyx Panther in-game.  Brezell barely sat still long enough for me to get the shot, but you can see it alright.  That’s what happens when you take the four colours and merge them.  So you’re looking at about 100-125 thousand gold there.  Sexy, but I like the four others better.  Speaking of which, I still haven’t seen a green one in-game.

    Sorry I missed the Kara, at this point I’ve circled October 21st and am trying to make sure NOTHING gets added to that day, got my fingers crossed. And thank you! Three characters managed to make it to that Blingtron 4000 before it disappeared! Disco Party!!!

      I had never even heard of it before. I was disappointed you had to be 80, but makes sense. I’ll know to keep an eye out on other servers.

      Kara was actually a throw together. Last night was the real LBR, as we ran TotC, OS10 (3 drakes), and Malygos in one hour!

    Grats again on the shield, and that’s a great outfit to go with it 😀

    I’ve gotten hung up on the MH/OH Transmogrification thing, too. I wanted to put the Devout Aurastone Hammer over my Paladin’s tanking mace, but it’s an MH weapon and her current weapon is an OH weapon…. Grrr, I wish they’d just lift that quibbling restriction already.

      I can see not wanting a Mace over a Sword, but a 1h mace should go over a 1h mace. Shouldn’t matter main hand/off hand.

      This is the part where I resist pointing out Blizzard’s penchant for “holding back.”
