WotLK and MoP, Your Powers Combined...

Chest: Gown of the Spell-Weaver
Shoulders: Windchanneler's Mantle (alternatively, for the shoulders that are meant to go with this regalia: Miasma Mantle)
Gloves: Gloves of Dark Gestures (alternatively, for form-fitting gloves of identical color: Moonshroud Gloves)
Belt: Klaxxi Lash of the Seeker
Head: Hood of Blind Eyes
Main Hand: Tihan, Scepter of the Sleeping Emperor
Off-Hand: Branch of Sinful Reprieve

It was nice to see the mace drop on our first Will of the Emperor kill, and as you can see I was the lucky recipient. The mace is lovely - the ball spins and lights up - so I decided to find a matching outfit. I opted for the BC Windchanneler's shoulders solely because I put a lot of work into getting them, trying to match them to the outfit in my first post and it didn't work out. They match my hair and the brightest blues on the dress so it works out nicely.

Otherwise this outfit is a lovely coming together of two expansions that are really quite far apart, Pandaria having no contact with the scourge of Wrath. And yet, Wrath offered the best match to this Pandarian weapon.

As a side note, I'd like to point out that the off-hand is a unique model. Pick it up if you ever see it cheap.

The adorable Dragon Kite popped up on the BMAH yesterday. After a hefty bid war, I picked it up for 92k. I named it Cost a Lot. It can't battle, but that's okay because the blue version matches my outfit. The other three colors it can be are nice too.

BMAH Mogging

Sometimes it's hard to be a raider at the beginning of an expansion. I've consumed a lot of my time getting geared up appropriately for our first raid week (4/6 is okayish). Unfortunately it means I neglected my mogging and this blog. I still sort of am.

Chest: Shroud of Spiritual Purity
Shoulders: Shoulderpads of Faith

I will neglect the other items I am wearing as they aren't what I want for this outfit, but I don't have the time this week to farm them. Those shoulders are no longer in the game. They are the priest T3 shoulders and they popped up on the Black Market Auction House.

Things worth noting: old gear pieces all seem to come up for 10k, regardless of item slot. These shoulders cost me 16k and a repair bill as there were three other priests bidding too. One of them was Alliance, which I thought, "Oh yeah, they've been saying they put this AH away from the prying eyes of the city," I'll roll 'em since I'm on a PVP server. Oh no. The exchange guards in the AH get quite upset by this and do attack. So there won't be any PVP battles for this stuff, just the good ol' fashioned waiting.

I have had that chestpiece sitting in my bank, unequipped, for quite some time now... waiting for something that would look nice with it. Those shoulders are great. I'm quite in love with it and hoping to finish the rest of the outfit.

There's a lot of old tier gear no longer available in game popping up on the BMAH. If you have the gold, be sure to check daily.
