Hooray, craftable Elemental mail!

PTR shows 2 new Leatherworking patterns available that are itemized to where both elemental and resto shaman will both be happy to pick them up:

Earthsoul Boots

Lightning-Infused Leggings

Until now, the only craftable gear decently itemized for elemental was the ilvl 200 boots and chest, along with ilvl 200 leather legs. Ulduar and ToC patterns were items with MP5, which is great for resto but a waste of item budget for elemental (although this isn’t to say the crafted items with MP5 aren’t an upgrade; see the comment posted here).

Perhaps this week we will finally see the artwork for our Tier 10? Hmm…

    Perhaps we’ll even see some decently itemised elemental gear in dropping in 10-mans! Perhaps pigs will soar through the sky, their stubby little legs intertwined in glee, over cats and dogs living together in harmony.

      Perhaps we will, seeing that we have H1N1 floating about. 🙂

      IIRC, ToC 10 has a helm from Anub along with the dagger I’m using from FC and…well, that’s it, unless you count heroic/tribute runs, where you can get an amazing mace (that everyone else that can use a caster mace will want) along with a cloak. Non-set mail items decently itemized for elemental are few and far between, indeed.

      But that’s ok, for we have the badge system to save the day…oh wait.

        Yep, ToC10 has the helm as well as some shoulders from Beasts – but both overlap with decent tier options. There’s the dagger from FC and the mace from heroic Anub and… well, nothing else. The only slot with a decently itemised option from ToC10 (except tribute) is the belt, and it’s cloth. And an offhand with haste/hit, but not using a shield seems WRONG. Ulduar-10 was similar but with slightly more to offer.

        Other class/specs probably have similar issues – maybe even 25-man raiders do – but to not have, say, a decent set of bracers drop in 3 tiers of content is a bit depressing. I’ll probably blog about it someday when I can figure out how to do it without turning into a wailing, blubbering mess.

        A-durr…I am wearing the heroic version of the shoulders you mentioned, yet didn’t even think about them. Talk about fail. 😛

        On the bracer note, it’s a good thing my guild likes me and went about crafting the ToC dps cloth bracers; up until I got those, I was still rocking the ones from Razuvious in Naxx 25, which I won ~9 months ago. I had the Maly 10 leather caster boots for about the same length of time.

        I can handle wearing some cloth (although I will not take cloth over any cloth-only caster that needs it), but the idea of not having a shield makes my skin crawl. Whatever happened to 10 mans having good shields? ToC dropped the ball there, heh.
