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.
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.
