So It’s Friday night, I’ve just gotten back to Shattrath from my daily work for the Shattered Sun Offensive. I’ve mailed the money I’ve earned over to mister Birdie (yes, that is the name of my accountant) for safekeeping, I’ve once more rearranged the guild bank (you know, at times i think I am the only one who cares about order in this guild! Who in their right mind puts Netherweave Cloth in three different places and why oh why would you not put all the gems in one place?). Anyway, where was I? Shattrath. Bank. Taken care of. Done with all I had planed for the day. And so, with lots of hours left to kill, but nothing fun left to do (I don’t consider getting all wet up in Skettis while fighting the water elementals for some mote of water fun) I decided to enroll with the Battlemasters as a Proud Fighter for the Horde and join some fellow Hordies in the battlegrounds.
I went and talked to Montok Redhands, the Bttlemaster for Warsong Gulch and he let me know that they indeed were in need of another helping hand. So i told him to put my name down for the next free spot he had and in less then 10 minutes, i was getting ready to kick some Alliance behind – or so i thought. We did win the battle, but truth be told, it was not thanks to yours truly. I kept dying, so much that i can sweare that I at one point saw the spirit healer roll her eyes at me. I was obviously no match to the Alliance fighters i was facing. So once I got out of that battleground, I had another chat with Montok, who to say the least was not impressed by my effort. He smirked and in a very orcish way (because I don’t want to say “rude”) he let me know that not only was i lacking in experience, i was also lacking in stamina and resilience. I did get one vital piece of information out of him and that’s that all the major factions of Outland offer a piece of gear magically imbued to best fit the purposes of battleground fighting.
Since I am in good standing with all major Outland factions, I decided to pay their quartermasters a visit. So i got in contact with mister Birdie and cashed out some of my savings and went on a shopping spree. All in all I got:
[Evoker’s SIlk Cowl]
[Evoker’s Silk Amice]
[Evoker’s Silk Handguards]
[Evoker’s Silk Raiment]
[Evoker’s Silk Trousers]
[Thick Felsteel Necklace]
and some gems and metagems to go with them.
All these items are imbued with extra stamina, so i felt a lot tougher once i had them all on. I’ve sown a special pocket in my backpack for the extra change of gear, so that I can carry both sets of garments with me at all times.
Since I needed some gems for my new battlegear, I went and talked to Masque to see if he could provide me with a few fitting stones. He had the material for almost everything i needed, except for the metagem needed for the cowl. So while he crafted all other gems, I went by the auction house and got the meta gem I was looking for.
I find the battleground gear quite pretty, though I think the red dress brings out the colour of my eyes much better. Not to mention that the black one makes my rear look huge.
