Hunter transmog: week 1

My hunter has been running with the same ranged weapon transmog for a while now – the Steelhawk Crossbow which dropped from Attumen the Huntsman whilst I was mount farming.

It was starting to feel somewhat old & my hunter felt she wanted a change. She looked around at various bows which are available, but what really caught her eye was the Vengeful Gladiator’s Longbow, a PvP bow from the Burning Crusade. Not only is it a rather unusual bow and quite pretty, its also cheap at just 750 honor (or 1500JP).

Then the question became – what else to go with it. And that’s where I hit a bit of a roadblock – I poked at a few things, but nothing jumped out. The Black Dragon Mail set had promise, but it didn’t really gel.

So I asked The Godmother if she’d be able to take a look.

… and she came up with a beautiful outfit, full details of which can be read on her blog.

So then came the fun of farming it all.

The first thing I found was the chest suggested was one of the BoP profession bonus-style items blacksmiths get & unfortunately my hunter is a leatherworker/skinner. Fortunately there are two quests which reward an item with the same model, so I found myself picking mushrooms on Bloodmyst Isle to get Jessera’s Fungus Lined Hauberk.

Time taken: around 15mins, most of which was travelling around.

The next item was the blue linen shirt – that was nice & quick as I’ve got a couple of tailors.

Time taken: around 5mins, most of which was finding which bank I’d stashed some linen cloth in!

Since my hunter is a leatherworker & I tend to be a professions completionist, she knew the recipe for Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Chain Helm already and even had the mats to hand!

Time taken: 1 minute

I then poked Lady Vashj and Fathom-Lord Karathress in SSC, neither of whom dropped the items wanted. Although I was amused at how large Lady Vashj ends up getting when you ignore most of the small elementals which buff her.

Instance Boss Kills so far… Item dropped?
SSC Lady Vashj 1
SSC Fathom-Lord Karathress 1
