Here’s the full set on Wowhead.

Okay, so I normally try to be funny (note that I don’t generally succeed), but there’s not much to say about this outfit. It does have the benefit of letting hunters and shamans alike have access to the Shaman Tier 2 shoulder model, though, which for Horde players has the added bonus of dredging up feelings of resentment re: wolves and lightning and quest-related combinations of the same while lagging heavily in Frostfire Ridge.

As for the gear, Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Crystalhide Handwraps  is a tough one to explain. It’s the result of one of Burning Crusade’s more obscure mechanics: first, grind 50 Apexis Shards from mobs in Blade’s Edge Mountains and score a copy of not-apparently-BoE Depleted Mail Gauntlets. Similarly, Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Abyssal Mail Greaves has its own story to tell — it’s a potential drop from a rare lurking around Shadowmoon Valley, making it a theoretically easier grind from its fellow world drops.

Oh yeah, and World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Kilt of Elemental Mending? Not a kilt. So there’s that.

EDIT: Hey, shamans! It’s been brought to my attention that you’d rather not raid using a bow and arrows, so on request I’ve come up with a few staff alternates that work with this set. The three I’m thinking of are Archus, Greatstaff of Antonidas (heroic version), Engraved Gargoyle Femur, and Cold Convergence (Alliance version).

Or you can toy with all three and decide what you like best on Wowhead.

  1. Just to let you know, the Blood Elf image is messed up and showing entirely the wrong gear.

    Inspite of that this is a fantastic looking set with a great aesthetic. The subtle purple works really well.

        • Three alternatives for you are Engraved Gargoyle Femur, the heroic version of Archus, Greatstaff of Antonidas, and (if you’re Alliance) Cold Convergence.

          I can’t use HTML in the comments, I think, so I’ll throw the relevant link to Wowhead in the original post.
