I was a little reluctant to search Google Images for the above picture. In case you don't know Pearl Necklace has a slang meaning, which might not be readily accepted by a Proxy Firewall.
I have had a little downer on Darkmoon Faire and the Seasonal Events, but if there is gear to be had, I am going to be first in the queue to indulge myself. This week we have Love is in the Air, to correspond with Valentine's Day. The celebration in the Real World has always been very commercial and the buying of mass produced greetings cards seems a very false way of demonstrating your love.
In game we have a chance to win (very slim chance) a Love Rocket, a pink 2 seater flying mount, but right now everyone seems to be more interested in scrapping over one of five necklaces that drop from the Chemical Co encounter.
The 5 necklaces at iLevel 480 cover the usual bases of:
- Strength (Melee DPS)
- Agility (Melee (Leather clad) and Ranged DPS (Hunters)
- Dodge (Tanks)
- Intellect (Caster DPS)
- Spirit (Healer)
- Alts that have not completed the reputation grinds
- People who have had better things to spent their Valor points
- Main characters who have not completed the reputation grind
- People who are desperate for the Love Rocket
iLevel 480 gear seems to be pitched firmly at starter set gear, and this is closer to were the Honor rewards should have been not 450 Blue gear.
I like healing this seasonal Boss(es) due to the obvious nature of people who are incapable of moving out of the bad stuff. Scenarios have taught me one thing at least, that your health is your own responsible. Do not expect somebody else to wipe your bottom for you. Healers are there to keep the Tank alive and deal with splash damage to the party not heal through lazy DPS thinking that moving is an optional requirement.
Why do Plate Wearers keep taking Agility items? did the game change and nobody told me?
