First day of 4.3 – dungeons and transmogrifying

Another fun fight, if you like eyeballs.

Well, I havent’ really prepared any transmog sets, as I have SO many old tier sets in the bank. I have moved most of them over to void storage now, and it’s all nice and organised. What I’m sporting at the moment: I don’t have the gloves, but my current gloves blend quite well. I love the simple moon helm, so I’ll be wearing that for a bit.

Apologies to those who are looking for the Firelands heroic guides that I promised to write, and have sitting in draftland all abandoned. I recently started a new job, so with that, and a bit of travelling and a fair chunk of crafting…. my little blog has fallen by the wayside.
