Second Hand Rose

Yes, you too can blag your way into LFR with this one simple tip... ^^

Last night the second hunter made it into LFR. Needless to say, I won gold ^^

With the announcement we have two weeks until patch I thought it might be an idea to start getting the only other 90 I have 'raid ready', and although I severely doubt I'll be in a position to do the 5.2 raids with her come the Patch, I am at least on the treadmill. To get her there, I used my LW skills to make two PvP items plus an Epic Chest, got lucky in the Crown Chemical with the 480 neck, had my engineer make a Dragonling and parted with a not inconsiderable sum of glods for the 476 Darkmoon Trinket. Then it was about Scenarios (especially for the guaranteed 450 weapon you'll get from the Arena of Annihilation quest the first time in) and keeping the Archaeology 463 BoA Trinket in my bags until I can make an upgrade happen.

What this teaches me is that I really should have spent more time making Darkmoon Cards (lesson learnt) and that stockpiling leather's a Good Idea (TM) and perhaps I should look a bit closer at my Professions, especially with new recipes appearing in 5.2 (or at least the possibility of that happening.) It also showed me that Scenarios are a fabulous way of doing content quickly, without anyone speaking a word to you the entire time and give you some pretty decent items to boot. However, they will not get you to a position where you can walk into LFR: Heroics (at least in the next two weeks) will be a requirement. That is likely to change with 5.2 however, especially if PvP recipes automatically scale with iLevel. That may allow me to bypass Heroics altogether and makes it even more essential I have my Blacksmith at 600.

It also makes me consider who I'll want at 90 next, and the smart money really ought to go with the Mage/Tailor, considering I have two stacks of Imperial Silk in my bags effectively gathering dust. This will mean gears for all of the cloth wearers too, and (hopefully) the chance to snag some 496 recipes on the AH (I reckon those craftables will be very decent moneymakers in the next patch because of the 480 iLevel entrance requirement.) However I'm really not sure how much time I will have for a third level right now: I do have two farms at 16 plots (finally) but need to send K around picking up dirt piles plus cooking some foods to get everyone on the Farm a bit happier with her. That's really not essential I suppose, but I have one eye on future patches and the possibility of Best Friends offering more in the long term...

Right, now if you will excuse me, I have two toons to run through Shadowfang in the vain hope I might get a mount to drop...

Out of curiosity, seeing how you have the crafted epic chest - why not also the crafted epic gloves? (both are recipes from the Golden Lotus quartermaster)

@Yoco: one of the few Heroic items I owned were gloves, so it seemed fairly pointless to update at this point, just for accessing the LFR grind...
