I bet that post title gets a few GoogledGnome hits…
Wont be long before I’m not even allowed to write it…
Anyway, let me put your mind at ease.
This isn’t about that kind of Cross-Dressing (although admit it, who doesn’t like a nice floral summer frock?)
This is about Cross Dressing in WoW!
You with me yet?
Gnomeaggedon has been a cross-dresser from the day he was rolled… he wore frocks from level 1 to, well till about 57 when he was forced to wear pants for 10 levels… Then back into frocks…
You know where I’m heading now right?
Wrong… dirty sleazy regular readers of mine…
I’m talking about cross dressing Tier Pieces!
It never really mattered for Gnomeaggedon.
In reality a fair portion of theMage QQ from WoLK was that every time a new Tier set came out, it forced you out of the closet and into a new Spec. There would be one Mage Tier set, with stats and bonuses that benefited one spec… well any spec except Frost.
Squidly’s got issues
Squidly, on the other hand, has some dilemmas at the moment.
I guess I should be thankful that Blizzard has effectively prevented Squidly from ever wearing anything but Mail. I mean I could have had some real issues if I had to choose between the lace legwarmers and the leather chaps…
His real problem is Item Stat vs. Set bonuses
One is awesome, the other wrong… Or one is average and the other awesome
You see I don’t care too much about mana at the moment… maybe I should, but since I always have something left in the tank (I just let the Bad Standing DPS die if I am running low… it’s called mana conservation), I want something else… I want HASTE!
Rawr even tells me I want haste. Rawr values the Elemental set above the Resto set right now… go figure…
The problem is, I don’t throw that many Flame Shocks or Lava Bursts around as a Resto Shaman.
Admittedly it’s nice that I can purchase some Elemental gear for my Resto spec so I can at least beat DeathTards when I’m running Elemental… but the problem then is I don’t get a set bonus because the rest of my Tier gear is Resto…
I’m an Adult. It’s a free world, let me cross dress if I want to!
So what I want (Christmas is coming… I might find this under the tree… I have kinda been good this year…) is:
- When I’m Spec’d Resto, let me use all my Tier pieces to count towards my Resto Set bonus…
- When I’m Spec’d Elemental, let me use all my Tier pieces to count towards my Elemental Set bonus…
- When I’m Spec’d Enhancement, just shoot me!
- Oh and let me roll on Cloth and leather gear…
What sort of a Nob would do this to me anyway?
Gnomer and Out, Squidly and Stout!
PS: be warned… Gnomeaggedon’s reindeer have been leaving droppings all over the Blogsphere… be carefult where you step!
Speaking of which… looks like I got caught up in a party I couldn’t handle… enjoy & Merry Christmas.
Ohhh and another early Christmas Present… this time from Fim, Nib & The Bind on Equip crew.. No the Dingo didn’t steal my baby, but Episode 70 – What the DINGO is a Chook? It should have been episode 69… ahhh well.. Pants on Head.
