It was a big week for Team Zarigar. Most of them got VP capped and raised their ilevels enough to either get into LFR or be able to queue further into it. (Upgrade vendor, I’ve missed you so; please never leave me!)
I even logged onto Winterhoof to see what’s going on with my Alliance shammy. The good news was that she could queue for MV, and that’s about it. Eh what the heck, a pity run for her would be super nice of me.
It is so weird to play the same class with different levels of gear. Zarigar and Khiaren are both elemental shaman but they don’t feel the same at all. If nothing else it makes me much happier to go running back to Horde.
At the last boss she picked up some gold. And the little bonus roll box came up. Oh bless her heart, she still has gold coins. What the heck? Use one up…and she gets a shield.
Bwahahaha. She actually was still using a shield from Gate of the Setting Sun, so she didn’t have to take that awkward “fan intermediate” step. Good for her, although really I should NOT have been surprised that a toon that’s rarely played gets to have a shield.
So then back to Horde to throw Zarigar at Tortos. Loot drop: gold. Waste a Mogu coin to get…a shield?
Zarigar finally gets to have a shield, too?
Sweet baby Jesus, thank you. No more ridiculous eyeball stick with an excess of Hit. I get to wear a shield like a proper shaman. My first instinct was to go run it to the upgrade guy and throw some VP into it, but I decided to wait and see if I could press my luck with the Twin Consorts. The shield they drop would cut out some of the spirit for a little more intellect.
I know, that was super greedy, but I was on a roll. Alas, no other shield for me, even though I got a fresh run on a Monday night, how much more luck was I expecting?
Now we all just look at the ridiculous paladin with a fan still and shake our heads. But at least my shammy has a shield now.
A shield that I will be mogging soon because for something I’ve wanted forever and ever it’s actually quite ugly.
