As Jon mentioned in an earlier post, I’ve been grinding my butt off to finish my Frozen Shadoweave set, and it’s finally paid off. Granted, I’ve done all of this hard work only to want an entirely new set, but it’ll be good for farming for money to get a flying mount. I’ve probably spent a small fortune leveling my tailoring from 340 to 375 and purchasing mats for my robe, shoulders and boots. There’s no way I was going to wait every four days for 2 pieces of shadowcloth, so I bought it outright from the auction house. The cost for the cloth is around 30-35g on my server. In order to make the set, I needed 26 pieces of shadow cloth. In order to make the gold to get these I farmed for Motes of Fire by killing Enraged Fire Spirits in Shadowmoon Valley to make Primal Fire which I sold for about 20g each. Now, there might be better ways of farming for gold, but I was able to create a primal every 7-11 minutes. Yes, I literally timed it. There are times of day that are better for farming, like early morning when everyone else is asleep, but even mid-day I was able to collect a decent amount to sell. As far as getting Primal Water, I initially started grinding Lake Spirits in Nagrand, but being so close to Garadar, I ended up getting ganked a lot. So, in the end, I went back to farm for more motes of fire. Then again, it’s also helpful if you have a husband who will loan (give) you 200g.
I felt a great sense of accomplishment after finally seeing the pieces on. Although, I desperately need to do something about those bracers and gloves!
