So last night I did this:
Did the archeology on my mage, who is currently level 86. I did a lot of dying, hitting nodes on Kun-Lai Summit and Towlong Steppes. Did a lot of cool mage tricks like slow falling down the tallest waterfalls in the world out at the north end of Kun-Lai, which you should really go fly past if you haven’t. Just beautiful.
I might not have made the push to 600 but it was one of the last professions the guild needed to get our BOA legs. This one really was a team effort! Another guy did the fishing and was working on archeology but when I mentioned how close I was he went off to level his panda, clearly glad to be done with that grind for a while.
I’ve made three of the four MoP rare archeology things: the spear, the trinket, and the umbrella. Oh, the umbrella…. it’s a BOA offhand, one of the nicest in the game pre-raid right now and it is lovely. I don’t mean the stats. Here, let me show you.
Seriously, it’s one of the most beautiful items in the game right now and I really need to transmog my whole outfit around it. So I’m looking for suggestions: leather gear that will look good with this. I have a feeling it’ll be harder than finding cloth pieces. Is there such a thing as a leather geisha dress? I’m currently thinking of going back to Conqueror’s Nightsong Headdress for my hat: it’s just a simple glowing half moon on my forehead and my default head item. But that leaves the rest of me… and the tabard. Our guild tabard is unwearable right now thanks to the death knights winning a contest and having the tabard redesigned to honor them for a month. (Troutwort, it’s been long enough, right?)
So, fashionistas, how would you coordinate around this umbrella?
