Thoughts: I’ve always liked the Grunt’s Pauldrons, but hated how they went with the rest of the Grunt’s set. When I landed a new shiny staff (with globules!), it seemed a good time to try to make something that matched a bit better and wasn’t as intense as the “Mustard, Ketchup and Pickles” transmog experiment. I got lucky with the belt – I wanted the Masterwork or Ornate Girdle, which were on the AH for 1,250g and 991g, respectively, and were totally out of my price range. A few hours and obsessive checks later, somebody had put one up for 300g! Hallelujah! I got unlucky in that I bid on an 800g pair of gloves which I then changed my mind on and discovered that you can’t take back a bid. Sheeyit. I got lucky again in that some guildmates laughed their heads off when I told them how much it was, and Caliverne (he told me it wasn’t even that much) promptly went and outbid me. I got unlucky again when I spent the same gold on a different pair of gloves which looked great in the little preview window, but upon exposure to the world, I realized that damn it all, they were a dark brown, not black. Curses. With what little gold I had left, I located the Radiant Gloves, which I like better than the matching Ornate, as they’re a little darker (and therfore match the strips on the arms). I’m now broke, but I look good! I think.
