WTB AH Greens
It was a busy weekend with the holiday season, events, and a Christmas concert, so I didn’t get too much noteworthy Wow time in. The one thing I did accomplish was to get a group to go back in and defeat Pandemonious.
I logged in late Saturday night and asked a few guildies if they wanted to come in to Heroic Mana Tombs with me. We ended up with me (the tanking druid), a mage, a holy paladin, a resto druid, and a pug warlock (everyone else was in an instance). I told the pug that my focus was killing Pandemonious. With my remembered gear, a few other AH greens, and a Shadow Resist Aura, I was sitting at about 240 Shadow Resist. Granted we did have two healers, but I was taking considerably less damage then our other tanks that tried this boss. It was almost trivial.
The funny thing was that I was mostly in green AH gear. It seems that Blizzard has provided all these great resist gear items for plate wearers of epic and superior quality, but for the leather tanks, they get random drop greens that have stamina and resist on them. Maybe I just have to get over my prejudice towards the purple items. The same can be true for the tanking mage in the fight with High King Maulgar… just a lot of green plus stamina gear will usually do the trick. So, maybe it’s situational, but don’t underestimate the green items you see drop.
On another note, I got the recipe for the Stormchops from the daily cooking quest. I made a few, but have yet to see them in action. I suppose it will be of most use to my Enhancement Shaman when he gets another 3.5 levels (level 55 requirement for the Stormchops). I also got a world enchanting drop of Enchant Weapon – Potency. I used it since I didn’t have it, but at a Auctioneer value of about 600g on my server, I may have made the wrong decision. Is +20 Strength really worth it? Well… I have it if anyone wants it. Heh.
