“Stupid Belt” Set

“Celestial Naturalist” Set

Class: Shaman

H: Faceguard of Celestial Harmony (LFR) | S: Skyshatter Mantle | Cl: Not shown
Ch: Vicious Gladiator’s Ringmail Armor | Wa: Naturalist’s Preserving Cinch | L: Vicious Gladiator’s Ringmail Leggings
G:
Gallywix Laborer’s Gloves | Wr: Not shown | B: Amberpine Greaves

Dagger: Starshard Edge
Shield: Ice Layered Barrier

Thoughts: BANDANAHAT.  It combines the coolness of a bandana with the usefulness of a hat!  I get to be mysterious and shield myself from the sun at the same time.

Now, this could be proof of either insanity or long-term planning, but I’ve had those freaking blue mail gloves FOREVER.  You think I’m kidding?  Well, you can only get them from the goblin starting zone … and I just now found a use for ’em at level 90.  You know what else could be proof of insanity or long-term planning?  I started this set in like, November or December.  Supremus didn’t drop the belt until the end of April.  Mother trucker!

This was originally going to be my healing set, because hey, water spells and blue seem to go together, right? UNFORTUNATELY, I’ve been getting more and more OC about the legendary cloak wings working with/against a mog.  My healing wings are red and gold, not watery whatsoever, (dammit), while my DPS wings are tentacle-y and green, which go better.

Thoughts:  According to my scientific research, if armor sparkles, glows or moves, the coolness factor is increased exponentially.  I love this shaman tier.  Ok, so maybe not quite as much as I ❤ the Firebird set from Vaults/HoF, but I still love it – the shoulders in particular.  They remind me of sparkly gyroscopes, and what could be better for a goblin!?  I dug out one of my favorite shields as well, Gizlock’s Hypertech Buckler.  Engineers can make a similar shield, I believe, but this one drops from Maraudon for those of us who can’t.  It rotates too!

Full disclosure: I should note that farming anything from Maraudon is kinda a pain in the tush due to the distance you must travel to get in/out of the instance.  I actually picked up this shield back when I was leveling.
