Not Quite Red.

There's this contest on this site where they are having people submit red outfits.  I'd like to get involved, but the problem I had was I got stuck wanting so badly to make an outfit work around this fabulous robe I found in Molten Core.  Can we just ignore the color of the robe and remember that I got this in a red zone?


What is she wearing?  She looks so fabulous!  You must tell me who designs for her!  Okay, alright, I'll make a list for you, but you have to get it yourself.  I'm done earning the appropriate currency to purchase items I only wear for the look, not the stats.

Chief Architect's Monocle
Deadly Gladiator's Mooncloth Mantle
Robe of Volatile Power
Tyrannical Gladiator's Satin Gloves
Tyrannical Gladiator's Cord of Meditation

Weapons and off hands are there just because they were red, and not because I really cared what she was carrying.  If you must know what she is holding, it is a Tracker's Blade and a Master Dragonslayer's Orb.

Do you use WoWhead?  I love that I can just look up the saved profile I have for Delgada and just lift all the info off the page to make links here.  There is even a neat preview of her standing there in her lovely, totally not red clothes.

So, all that work and no red to show for it.  Still, Del looks terrific, so I won't complain too loudly. Good night Azeroth.  Make sure to stop and smell the Peacebloom.

It was sparkling, which means ,"PICK THIS UP!" in game terms. I'm not bad, am I?

Delgada is working on achievements, and today she was working on finishing the Riches of Pandaria.  She didn't finish it, through no fault of this great guide on Wowhead. If the items had been there, she would have picked them up, and she did get several.  We'll finish tomorrow, she says, while she is hunting rares for the Glorious! achievement. Oh, and picking up the laundry, er, gloves for her transmog she left behind on the Serpent's Spine.  I digress.  Where I was I headed?

Oh!  Well, shiny things are tempting, aren't they?  Sometimes picking something up has circumstances.  There is a bag of coins you can pick up in Pawdon Village in the Jade Forest at a burial shrine that is not part of the achievement. Right after you loot it, you get a de-buff called Chastised that lasts an hour. I didn't think anything of it, and sent Delgada on her merry little way digging for artifacts and picking up the things left behind by the denizens of Pandaria.  I never even noticed that there was something wrong.  Blame it on always being in shadow form if you must.  I got to the shrine and noticed that my mount seemed off.  I was riding my Twilight Drake and thought to myself, "He looks more like a midnight drake.". 


Not so colorful anymore.

Sha-touched ram.
 I would love to have something in game that can change my priest and mounts and pets (sadly, they remained unchanged) into shades of grey.  I think it more suited to my shadow priest than swirling purple mist.

In other news, my friends emptied their toy boxes all over the shrine tonight.  We rode sandbox tigers and talked to ghost magi. We tried to a annihilate turnip punching bag and let out all sorts of wildlife. We threw masks at each other and transformed into many different forms.  I left them dancing.

Set on fire by the Wickerman, or by his creaky dance moves? You decide.
