In this week’s All Things Azeroth, Medros and Shade were discussing how hard it was in vanilla for a character to get a blue item prior to level 60. Since Exemel is now level 57 and will be headed for Outland in 30 seconds or so, I thought it might be interesting to take a look at what she is wearing.
Helm of Exile – a blue item from the quest Jammal’an the Prophet. I actually stumbled across the questgiver but got it down during a Sunken Temple PuG.
Emberfury Talisman – a blue item from Pyroguard Emberseer in Upper Blackrock Spire. I had never anticipated finding a group that wanted to run that, and we didn’t finish, but we got quite a ways.
Exceptional Stormshroud Shoulders – heirloom leather because I bought these for my upcoming Worgen rogue. But they work well for an Enhancement Shaman.
Destroyer’s Cloak – I have generally found capes to be the hardest thing to replace in vanilla content. This one is from the quest Direhorn Raiders. The stats on this one are really amazing for a green.
Stained Shadowcraft Tunic – another leather heirloom
Earthbound Wristguards of the Wild – Dungeon Reward
Rockgrip Guantlets – from Landslide in Maraudon
Earthbound Girdle of the Thief – Dungeon Reward
Savage Gladiator Leggings – from Ok’thor the Breaker in Blackrock Depths
Earthbound Boots of the Bandit – Dungeon Reward
Aquamarine Signet of the Owl – Crafted item I found in the AH a while back
Tumultuous Ring of the Bandit – Dungeon Reward
Discerning Eye of the Beast – my other pair of trinkets are offrealm but I found these work for a shaman, anyway.
Venerable Mass of McGowan – Heirlooms – complete with Crusader Enchant
Totem of the Earthen Ring – Quest Reward
Oh, and getting Skinning to 379 doesn’t hurt in the Critical Strike Area either. But anyway, either Exemel was extremely lucky or else getting blues post-vanilla is a wee bit easier.
