Thoughts: This is Electrika’s new transmog set for her Elemental spec.  Have you ever used a guide to figure out what pieces you want for a set, only to find that THE PIECE OF YOUR DREAMS is no longer available and cannot be gotten for love nor money?  I use Icy Veins for transmog planning.  It’s not an infallible source, but it has my preferred format for these things – lots of pictures of items next to each other, on a class specific and slot-by-slot basis.  It told me that THESE AMAZING SHOULDERS THAT WENT PERFECTLY AND WERE SO PERFECT IT WAS AMAZING could be had from Doris Chiltonius in Orgrimm … hold on, isn’t that the blood elf chick who sells Tyrannical PvP gear on the wall in Pandaland?  Yes.  She is not in Orgrimmar and has not been for some time.  The shoulders are unobtainable.  ICY VEINS, WHY U DO DIS, MY HEART, IT IS BROKEN.

Yet I think being unable to get my ideal shoulders turned out to be a blessing in disguise.  The bright orange in the Shoulders of the Groundbreaker ties in with the Crown of Flame and the Demonblood Eviscerator, while the dull gray color ties that in with the metal accents on the robes.  Plus, these were cheaper in terms of effort – couple of heroics, and presto!  I got enough justice to buy old school gear!

You could consider this Attempt #2 at making “a cool fire set.”  (Attempt #1 is here.)  Is it better?  Worse?  I think it is an improvement.

WTB pretty water or ice themed crown.  (Ugly skullhat for $15?  No thanks.)
