Still kicking around Outland, Alliance-side

Fossegrimme is still taking the leveling slowly, combining questing, dungeons and working on her professions. She spent a little time questing around Telaar, establishing herself with the Kurenai in case she ever decides to rep grind for the Talbuk mounts. She hit level 67 last night, and was presented with the choice of continuing her path to either Shadowmoon Valley or Netherstorm. Where should she go?

Why Netherstorm of course, since a quest there will reward her with a Red Pointy Hat (see above pic from Wowhead)! Here's a secret: transmoggable quest rewards are a big determinant of whether I decide to quest in a zone, or dungeon my way through that level range. Overall Netherstorm has a lot of cool red cloth gear for my fire-y fire mage, so that is where she will go!

And yes, Fossegrimme has been working on her tailoring, and crafted herself a flying carpet! And with tailoring at 300, she was finally able to craft some level-appropriate armor for herself (Netherweave Vestements). So far leveling this profession hasn't been too bad of a grind. I would say about one-third of the cloth she needs she gets from her adventures, and the other two-thirds from the AH. It gets a bit expensive, but she makes the money back with her herbs and BOE armor from dungeon runs.

Finally, here is Fossegrimme's current transmog set. Try to ignore the Gnomer tabard, she wants some mechanical chicken mounts!

Helm: hidden
Shoulders: Embersilk Mantle
Chest: Cindercloth Robe
Shirt: Orange Mageweave Shirt
Hands: Starfire Gloves
Waist: Gossamer Belt
Staff: Frenzied Staff


  1. So glad I'm not the only person who levels alts with transmogrification in mind. All my casters do Vashj'ir for the squid staff even though I feel like I'm drowning half the time.

  2. Alliance! For Transmog! Well, I guess that's a good reason.
