Life in the Swamp. What’s up with the gear? One of these races is not like the other.

The questing continues. Blackhoof discovered that windfury weapon buffs on two weapons do not both proc, unless they’re different ranks of the buff. He felt pretty powerful there. But, being Shaman, there is a nerf incoming.

Msaker and Droonda also started the quests there in the Marsh. The Lost Ones fell to our Orcish invasion of Umbrafen Village, and we rescued the Cenarion Refuge Tauren lady. Next stop for them will be assisting the Sporelings

I’m enjoying the Swamp.

And Msaker is still wearing his rare PvP gear. Now some of the greens that are dropping, or are quest rewards, they’ve got a bit more +Stamina on them, and more Armor, but none of them have any decent crit rates. I’ve even sold a few socketed greens because the +4 Crit Chance gem I can buy for it just doesn’t seem worth it. The synergy of having the full PvP armor set is still greater than the Outland greens, and I’m singing the blues.

I like crits. I party with a healer. What do I need a lot more armor for? And, by the time I need to behave like a responsible warrior, and be prepared to tank for others, I’ll have level 65+ greens and blues. Other than the mining helmet I got from the goblin who ran the mine under Thrallmar I’ve vendored all the Outlands plate I’ve gotten. And the items I could actually use, belt and bracers, I had to find those on the Auction House.

And, for love of all that is Holy, or Shadow if that’s your ticket, why is all plate in the Outlands for Paladins? The Maghar Orcs are giving out Paladin plate for crying out loud!

Work with me here:

Orcs!

Paladins!

(The two don’t mix! Seriously.)

    What’s odd is that, as a paladin, I’m not seeing that much paladin plate. There is more than there used to be in Azeroth, but it still feels like is a lot more warrior gear.

    Especially weapons. I haven’t seen a good paladin weapon in ages.

    It’s probably just because the Horde is so unused to seeing paladin gear that it seems like it’s everywhere.

    While I think there are a a lot of pally plate as rewards, pally friends have complained about the weapons, so you may have something there. Personally, as a human warrior, I don’t understand the fixation with axes as quest rewards, but most aren’t any better than items I can craft as a smith, so I can live with it. Of course, all of this pales in comparison to the volume of leather working patterns and druid gear available from the various factions’ quartermasters. Guess it wouldn’t be WoW if every class didn’t feel they were being slighted.

    You said “Blackhoof discovered that windfury weapon buffs on two weapons do not both proc, unless they’re different ranks of the buff. He felt pretty powerful there. But, being Shaman, there is a nerf incoming.” –
    I did not know that, thanks for the information, since I am going 2 handed I will make sure to use different levels of windfury from now on, or at least until they nerf me… :)
