So I went through my gear lists, for the Shadow Priest and the Shaman. Anna’s healing gear is about the best she’s going to get without a regular Karazhan run or respeccing to mooncloth tailoring. Which ain’t gonna’ happen, because I’m NOT getting into 300g respecs because each time I have to respec tailoring to wear my other-set-gear. Which means that this morning, I sat down with my loot lists and my HEP/DEP/EnhEP spreadsheets and all that jazz, and came up with the following:
Annalira needs to have the following crafted:
- Cloak of the Black Void
- Girdle of Ruination
- Spellstrike Hood
- Spellstrike Pants
And she needs the following Honor gear:
- Vindicator’s Silk Cuffs – 12K honor, 20 WSG marks
- Gladiator’s Spellblade – 25.2K honor, 20 EotS marks
Which, all in all, constitutes to an asston (imperial) of netherweave and primals, and about 38K honor, and some marks from EotS and WSG. All in all, not too bad. The rest of her gear is in decent shape, what with frozen shadoweave. Fortunately, Anna is done with badge gear for now.
Annorah, being that I’m a respec maven and unable to decide just what kind of shaman I like being for any long period of time, needs… a lot. Like, staggeringly a lot. Like, the list is so long that if I bulleted it all, it would be disturbing. So the shortened version:
Healing Gear (first priority for now /cry):
- Gladiator’s Chestpiece – 14.5K honor, 30 AB marks
- Badges of Justice gear – boots, pants, belt, gloves = 255 Badges of Justice
Elemental Gear – (L) = leather :
- Gladiator’s Gavel/Spellblade – 25.2K honor, 20 EotS marks
- Badges of Justice gear – (L) chest, gloves, (L) belt, (L) wrist, boots = 290 Badges of Justice
- Honor Gear: Offhand, Chest, Bracers, Boots, Ring = 77.5K Honor, 30 AB marks, 20 WSG Marks, 10 AV marks, and 60 EotS marks
- Badges of Justice gear – Pants = 75 Badges of Justice
Which ends up totaling: 620 Badges of Justice, 117,500 Honor Points, 60 AB Marks, 20 WSG Marks, 10 AV marks, and 80 EotS marks. For one Shaman.
I think I’m going to go sit in a corner and cry for awhile, thanks.

Dear Warrior who just sent me a tell:
“You” has three letters; you misspelled healer, want, and the name of the instance. No, I will not heal for you.
Thanks, but no thanks,

2.4 test realm patch notes, as of February 9. Not that everyone else isn’t posting about them, but hey – now I have a permanent, easy to get to link.
I’ll talk about random bits of them later, I’m sure. As warned with my last patch notes rant, these are tentative until they are live. (You’ll notice the Lightwell change isn’t in there).
As for SSC, DAY2: Leotheras and Karathress down. First attempts on Vashj. We got her through phase1 no problem. And, really, for having no idea what the hell was going on, we didn’t do too bad. Should be interesting next week, after everyone gets a chance to really process how it works. Because no matter how many times you’ve read the strats, there’s no substitute for actually standing up there and figuring it out as a raid. But I think we can do it, and do it well. Healing positioning is definitely going to be “fun”.
Please please PLEASE can you make it so that UI modifications are not lost when your lousy game crashes because it’s unstable when I load into an instance?
ALSO! Please help me name the bear! (see post below for details!)

I’ve had one last character slot open on Feathermoon for awhile, and I think I’ve finally filled it with the right character.
And, if you’re going to have a cookie cutter, female Blood Elf hunter, I figure why not have an unusual pet. So yesterday afternoon, Anryl and I put on some bits of cloth that served as “decency” and ran from the Undercity, down through the Sepulcher, through Tarren Mill, up to Hammerfall, back down through Menethil, up Dun Algaz and through the north pass into Dun Morogh. At level 11. About two hours worth of deaths, yes, but when I got there, Mangeclaw was waiting for me! He’s an unusual pet in general, since he and a rare spawn also found in Dun Morogh are the only white bears outside Winterspring, but I’m not thinking I’ll see many other low level blood elves with him trailing after them either. Plus, bears are awesome. I love the way he runs!
But, he needs a name. Suggestions have been Winston, Theodore, Zasha, and Rusarlas (called “Russ”). I’m not sure, but I’m kind of leaning towards the later two, because they sound vaguely Russian, and I”ll be leveling through beast mastery. So he’ll be both a White Bear and a Big Red Bear. Tee hee hee.
I’m definitely still open to name suggestions though, so leave a comment if you prefer one over the other, or have an awesome bear name!
