Monday night, my real life brother-in-law invited me to go with them to a Dungeon. I didn’t actually do much, I think I raised one of the other members once when they accidentally got aggro, and basically just looted when a certain things sparkled for me. The few times I tried to help with a totem, I think it really didn’t help, as my brother-in-law is an 80 Paladin, and honestly killed things too fast to be in one place very long.. so I stopped and just watched for the rest of the time. Ended up with a few nice pieces for when/if I ever end up healing. It was fun to watch though..
Before we went to the Dungeon, he had asked me if I had a mount yet. I told him that I didn’t but that it was ok because I had ghostwolf. He gave me some gold, and told me to go to Exodar and get my mount. Because I had done so many quests there, I ended up getting a discount and had enough left over to send to Katella and combined with what she had, got a mount for her too! Yay! That would have really taken a long time to earn on her! (Thank you Sesho! /bow) Purple is my favorite color, so I chose the purple elekk.
Later that night, I finished up a few more quests and got Karynna to level 40 Shaman! Yay! I was too tired, so I waited until Tuesday night to go to Stormwind and get spells and the ability to wear mail unlocked.
So here is the picture of Karynna in her first pieces of mail. (She has a mail head piece too, but I don’t have it displaying the helms on her.. (It would mess up her hair.. hehe)
I’m showing two pictures here for hopefully some feedback on a question. In switching up a few pieces to mail, I have gained more strength and lots more armor, but have lost some intellect.
I had Katella make Karynna the green shoulder pads because it has intellect +11, even though its cloth and only has 79 armor.
The red shoulderpads (leather) gave 103 armor with +2 strength, +2 agility & +10 spirit.
When I put the green one on, my intellect obviously goes up, my armor goes down slightly, but my power actually ends up higher.
I am thinking I might really be better off with the green ones.. does that sound right?
Also, what should an enhancing shaman’s priorities be? Strength, Stamina, Intellect I’d imagine, but I’m new, so very open to any constructive criticism.
How much mail should I be wearing? does it end up hurting my stats too much?
