|Me and the boys :D|
It was time for a Mog Change.
I’ve been playing with the idea of one for a while, as I’ve been wearing my ‘main’ mog since Azerothian Mog Madness arrived. With Pandaria coming up it seemed like a perfect time for the switch, and I’ve been considering a number of factors which would contribute to what the Mog entailed:
- The spec I’d be using to level (and by extension what hunter pets I had to utilise)
- The fact that, for 5 levels, I’m restricted to a ground mount
- The fact I ultimately lose my melee weapon and gain my ranged weapon on my back
- The desire to use Bloodmail Legguards as a base for the Mog
As a result, I’ve faffed for several weeks, waiting for the moment when I had the outfit to my satisfaction and I could gather the mats for the two crafted items I’d chosen as key pieces. Last night, I was in a position to do it, and even though the melee weapon becomes redundant on Wednesday, I mogged anyway.
|With dragons a theme for Pandaria, the Dragonbreath Hand Cannon is a no-brainer…|
When I lose the staff next week, there will no longer be the worry about a glow ruining the look of my main weapon, though ironically the green agi enchant goes very well with the general ‘feel’ of the outfit, and looks particularly good when I’m sitting on the ground mount I’ve chosen to use as I’m levelling in Pandaria, the Fiery Warhorse’s Reins:
|Am now even more depressed I lose my melee weapon :(|
Mogging has stopped being just about an outfit for me: pets are just as important (hence the matching Core Hounds which not simply bring co-ordination but also utility in my BM with the Ancient Hysteria ‘Heroism/Bloodlust’ buff) as is my mount, and I will be spending some time once my mounts become a ‘central repository’ next week in matching mogs to vanity pets and mount for each 85. This has become another factor of gameplay, as important for me as doing dailies or PvP. It is going to be fabulous having so many mounts and pets to mix and match amongst the family, giving everyone a chance to show their different aspects of class and race.
It has taken a lot for me to remove Precious’ Ribbon, still the only shirt in game to offer a debuff. I think the loss entirely justifies the final look.
