Outfitter + Pawn

We had too many ranged DPS sign up for ICC this week. I volunteered to sit out. I’ve gone on most of the guild runs and it’s only fair. The group did great even without me. They burned through all of the lower spire, festergut and rotface in a little less than 2 hours. Then they got really good attempts in on the Blood Princes. I’m very proud.

While my guild was running ICC I ran off and did VoA. I picked up the Sanctified Dark Coven Gloves from VoA-25 and the Furious Gladiator’s Pendant of Dominance from VoA-10. This meant I had to fiddle around both my “Boss 14%” clothes and my “High Stamina” set. When I get new gear I fiddle my gear around to get the highest pawn score and yet still keep at my hit cap. This “fiddling” can take upwards of 2-3 hours depending on whether I’m doing a quick gear swap.. or if I’m doing a full gear audit to make sure I have the best gear set for each of my sets (14% hit, 17% hit, High Stamina, etc). This is kind of a PITA and not terribly interesting.. just kind of manual. While I was working on these sets I found myself thinking “Gosh, it’s too bad that Outfitter can’t just read my Pawn settings to make these gear sets automatically”. Amazingly enough somebody already thought of that. Hidden deep in the menus of Outfitter is the option to have outfitter rebuild your gearset based on a Pawn scale.**

Fascination with Frozen Orbs

I had a /facepalm moment.

To set the stage.. last week (and frankly ever since the 3.3.3 change to Frozen Orbs were announced) I’ve dutifully ran my daily heroic. At the end of every heroic I hesitated over the Frozen Orb. Do I greed and hope that no one else has already needed it.. do [...]
