The end game really is all about incremental gear improvements, isn't it? For us small, tight guilds who are never going to get much beyond the 10 mans, our pool of potential gear is even smaller, with a huge focus on Kara drops and Badges of Justice loot. And so, it has been a good, good week for the Leafy one.
On Tuesday night we dropped Mr Illhoof for the first time, and in his fear at my woody awesomeness, he carelessly dropped the Cord of Nature's Sustenance, which made me a happy, happy tree. And he threw in the Mender's Heart-Ring for good measure. w00t!
And then, last night's Heroic Setthek Halls run, to get my Boomkin chum Ashilandra her Epic Flappy Form got me the final few badges I needed for my Gnarled Ironwood Pauldrons. And very lovely they are. I feel like a proper Druid now, with decent leather shoulders, instead of the Priest drag cloth ones I've been wearing.
What now? Well, I need to help my chum Toojags get some nethers so we can have a Hood of Primal Life each. And I really, really want the boots from the chess event, to replace the greens(!) I'm wearing now. But most of all, I'm saving my badges for the lovely 2.4 Badge of Justice rewards.
Luckily, The Part Time Druid has a good look at the 2.4 Druid Badge of Justice Gear, and that chest piece is looking mighty nice, if I can get the badges together. (It's possible Nightbane might drop something nice in the meantime, but I'm not holding my breath...)
Time to start refilling my badge bank, I think.
