Shattered Sun Offensive

Several days ago I managed to ding exalted with the Shattered Sun Offensive, and all I got was this stupid black t-shirt. Ok, not really. The SSO reputation items are really quite nice. :)

In addition to that fancy tabard, the biggest item of excitement for us Enhancement Shaman is the Shattered Sun Pendant of Might. Not bad for an epic necklace that only costs 23g and a few weeks of occasional dailies. Not even considering the proc, the stats alone were quite an upgrade over my former Natasha's Pack Collar.

The bummer about the proc is that it requires exalted status with either the Scryers or Aldor: "a chance to call on the power of the Arcane if you're exalted with the Scryers, or the Light if you're exalted with the Aldor." I have quite a ways to go, only about halfway into honored with Aldor yet. WTBmoarAldorRepPlsKthx.

I also picked up the Seeker's Gavel and Sunward Crest for offhealing duties, but mainly just because the shield looks so freakin' cool.

On the crafting front, having recently dinged 375 off several Stone of Blades, I was pretty excited to find the design for a Shadowsong Panther figurine available from the SSO quartermaster as well, but am awaiting the opening of the epic gem vendor to buy the two needed Shadowsong Amethysts. Yes, I know it's a lolrogue item, but you can't beat the 80 on-equip attack power and 320(!) on-use attack power (with only a 1.5 min cooldown). This should work quite nicely with my On-Use Macro of Pure Win(TM).

P.S.: Epic flyer fund: ~3500g and counting... slowly...
P.P.S.: Today's a new month, so don't forget to collect your free Consortium gems!
