I had grand dreams for posts this week. First I was going to write about the removal of Have Group Will Travel. Then I was going to write about what signs to look out for in a dud officer (WoW Insider beat me to that one, albeit Scott Andrews took a much kinder angle than I was going to!). Too bad I’m being fisted by germs again, eh. I’ve even lost my voice! Instead, I’ve taken inspiration from Prinnie Dood’s, Character Futures and Stuff and I’m going to talk about my toons! (By talk, I mostly mean, “Show off my transmog”.) I know, I know, there is no way this post will be as well written and humorous as Prinnie’s, but if I don’t spam someone with some mindless drivel, I’ll probably explode.
Nerisetta is an Affliction Warlock who hasn’t even spent her talents yet. There’s nothing really exciting to note about her, other than she has made me an absolute fortune with the Obsidian Shuffle. Since I’ve barely done anything with her, bar getting carried through Dragon Soul a few times, she doesn’t have much in the way of tier gear to pick for transmogrification. The look you see above has been achieved mostly through various Justice Points vendors throughout Azeroth. Let’s take a closer look, shall we?
Shoulders: Plagueheart Shoulderpads - You can either run Naxx for these, or purchase the token from the Legacy Justice Quartermaster in Dalaran for 417 Justice Points.
Weapon: Trail of Embers - Bought from Justice Vendor in Stormwind or Orgrimmar for 700 Justice Points. I love that wands are main hand weapons now!
VERDICT: I feel this outfit still needs a bit of work. The gloves are all wrong, and so is the weapon, but I’m too lazy to do any research into what items would work better. Considering she lives purely to prospect and smelt, I think she looks pretty darned fine! I especially like how the belt works so well with the robes, and the terrible aura the shoulders give off.
Nerisetta’s Future come September 25
As a Miner and Jewelcrafter, she certainly won’t be left to rot on the character screen, but I can’t say I’m overly excited to play her. I still have a bad taste in my mouth over how poorly she performed in Dragon Soul and I suppose I’ve lost a lot of confidence in my ability to play the class. I have heard nothing but glowing reviews about the 5.0.4 changes, and with deliciously evil reads like Warlockery and Blood Pact, I imagine I will get curious and take Nerisetta out to kill some pandas eventually. I just need some time for those old wounds to heal.
How about you? Have the 5.0.4 changes got you dusting off the ol’ alt Warlock and taking it out for a spin? What are your thoughts? Entertain me in the comments below!
