Thoughts: Not too long ago, I was suddenly afflicted by visions of Niremere wearing old Metallica t-shirts and spikes in her ears while sighing over the Mechano-hog she will never own and headbanging her way through dungeons. While none of these things are bad in and of themselves (in particular, knocking a mob out with your own noggin would be great!), they just aren’t how I pictured her character – and the mental images would just not go away. (Niremere would probably listen to instrumental New Age or trance music – no Yanni, please – while meditating and figuring out how to solve child hunger and achieve World Peace through competent administration and the Light.)
Uuunfortunately, if you rely on the AH as I do, transmogging as a member of the Alliance is horrifically more expensive than it is for Horde. (10k for a platekini top? You people are nuts.) Therefore, I chose the Gothic set to start off with – as it’s ugly as hale, it costs way less gold! I got supercalifragilisticexpialidocious lucky with the Overlord’s Leggings – someone put them up for 5g. Either they didn’t realize you could sell them for more like 500g, or they meant to put them up for 500g but forgot the zeroes. Good luck will come to those who check the AH obsessively.
This set makes me think of pumpkins, which makes me think of the Smashing Pumpkins, which makes me think of … Niremere wearing an old Metallica t-shirt and spikes in her ears while sighing over the Mechano-hog she will never own and headbanging her way through dungeons. Dammit! At least I match better now.
