Northrend has no good transmog gear

Go Gnomeregan! I want my robot chicken mounts!

Fossegrimme is at level 76 and growing a bit weary of the grey and brown gear of the Wrath expansion. Even the JP vendors in Dalaran have very few pretties for a flamboyant fire mage. What a difference from Outland with its brightly colored quest rewards and even more stunning dungeon gear. I'm looking forward to hitting 85 on Fossegrimme in large part so she can solo some of the BC dungeons for gear.

Damned disappearing books!

Fossegrimme's home base is now Dalaran, where she can run circles around the city looking for books for the Higher Learning achievement (4/8 so far) in between dungeon runs and some questing here and there. She's keeping up with her herbalism and tailoring, and she's even been able to upgrade her gear a couple of times with crafted items.

She's set two additional goals for herself here in Northrend: achieve exalted status with Kirin Tor and Wyrmrest Accord. The former for a pretty nice robe, the Robes of Crackling Flame, and also because she's a mage and so she should be exalted with the mage faction. Wyrmrest Accord exalted because:

She's doing quests in Borean Tundra and Dragonblight for both factions, but she'll be using JP to purchase most of the necessary rep, which I just learned about and kind of couldn't believe. It sort of feels like cheating! But for 520 rep/16 JP, it's hard to pass up.

Arcanist Miluria, popularity vendor!

Of course there are some green places in Northrend- some of the dragonshrines in Dragonblight, and of course Sholazar Basin. The Basin will be Fossegrimme's next questing stop, and combined with a few dungeons will hopefully put her to level 80 by mid-week!
