Overalls Out of my Reach
After entering the Hallow’s Ends contents recently I’ve had costumes on my mind lately. More so than normal as I’ve been farming transmog outfits for a while now. If you’ve read my previous posts, you’d know that I was trying to farm the Foreman Vest for my Archaeology costume. That item still eludes me after killing that ugly guy about 40 times now. I’ll keep at it from time to time and even check the AH’s on both Horde and Alliance as a last resort.
Over the past week or so, various circumstances have made me think of the Chief Architect’s Monocle from BRD and Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator from Gnomeregan. Luckily I only needed to farm each place about a handful of times, if not less. It’s not too hard getting to Gnomer either (I only worked this out after flying out there physically the first time). Using the back door on the way out I found myself in Grom’gol. This was great though as I turned around to find there was a transporter behind me, thanks to Chief Engineer Scooty.
While looking up various costume sites I came across these Mechbuilder’s Overalls which I think look great and was looking forward to using them for a possible gadget/engineer costume or alternate fishing outfit. However, I was depressed to find that you need to be an engineer with 75 skill to wear them.
I even jokingly asked Coolidge which profession he thought I should drop to take up Engineering and he said JC. For the next 30mins he reminded me of all the cool things you could do with Engineering. This made me a little sad as I always invest so much time and effort into all my professions. I’m a completist so I don’t see myself dropping a primary profession for another one. Unless they give us three primary professions ;P How likely is that though…
Although Mixologist’s Tunic comes close, it’s leather so alas, I can’t wear that either. I did read that Sturdy Cloth Trousers were the perfect complement to get the Mechbuilder’s Overall look but it appears they are no longer in the game anyway.
Well, it was a nice thought while it lasted…
