Father Fandral Claus

I’ve been running Firelands weekly since, well, I realized I could.  So we’ll say almost two months.  I’m honestly amazed at either how much little leather gear there is or just how bad my luck is.  I actually average less than one leather item per run.  But that’s not the reason I run it.  Oh no.  I want to be a fire cat.  Druid of the Flame, that’s Zarahi.  Or at least, it would be if Majordomo Staghelm ever dropped the darn staff.

With it being Christmas and all…and the annual daftness around the trees in Ironforge and Orgrimmar, I figured it was a good time to make my weekly run.  Once again, next to no leather drops (though I did get a Tier helm).  Alysrazor nearly killed me because I wasn’t paying attention…but she died, and no mount.  A short while later I’m across the bridge and staring at that MajorPainInTheRear and then he’s dead.  Scythe!  Needless to say, a short while later I was enjoying the benefits of being a Druid of the Flame.

Burn Kitty

Oh yeah baby.  Now, the only thing concerning me is that the buff ends the moment my combat ends.  I know it’s supposed to be a mildly lingering effect, and just a few moments ago saw one in Ironforge.  The player said it seemed to last for a bit out of combat, and that’s not the case for me.  I don’t know if it’s a glitch or if the item was changed somewhat.  But then it should affect all users the same way.  Regardless, I’m still ecstatic for Fandral to give me such a lovely item this Christmas.

    Congratulations Firecat! Some times Alysrazor goes fine and sometimes it resets over and over, not sure what I’m doing wrong on that one but no mount yet.

      The fight didn’t reset on me. For some reason it wasn’t registering as me having all three feathers. Now I wish I could figure out why some fire cats are wandering Ironforge while I revert as soon as the target is dead. lol

        I’d have to login to make sure I’m not making it up but I think I have to equip and then use it to get it to stay.

          I have it perma-equipped and same thing.

    I’ve always been Moonkin, ever since vanilla, so I never really paid attention to the fire cat staff.. but this works with transmog? My GF plays kitty, so we’re going to have to add Firelands in to our weekly rotation.

      You don’t even need to use it as a transmog. Just have it in your bags.

        That’s awesome, thanks for the heads up!

          Correction. It’s finicky. It worked this morning when I didn’t have it equipped, and now it doesn’t. Seems to be back to only when equipped. *facepalm*

            I’ve seen people with it in raids before at 90 in Mists, so there has to be some workaround somewhere. At least hopefully lol. I’d hate to think I was out-DPS’ed by a kitty in Firelands gear.
