It all started when Cool asked what set he should use on his latest doodle. Since I don’t really know the Mage sets that well, I headed over to Draynee’s Mog Companion site and found the Tempest Regalia set to be quite unique.  At the same time, I don’t really do much on my mage so her gear isn’t really gemmed or enchanted (short of the tailoring ones) but I was curious to see how well I could solo Black Temple.


As I started with the first boss, I wondered if I would still get spiked since I had my frostberry with me. It appears you don’t – unlike the MC’s on the Kael’thas Sunstrider fight. Now I really didn’t have any trouble with the place until I reached The Illidari Council. After my first wipe, I had to change my strategy a little, opting to spellsteal the buff off the mage and then focus on the Pali until I could spellsteal the Mage again. The fight still took a while as my mirrors came up for a second time but I was happy to see the second piece of my tier drop before heading up to the final boss.


I’ve killed Illidan many, many times but never alone. He usually dies pretty quick so I don’t often have a good opportunity to take pics of him when he’s hovering in the air. Today I wanted to change that.

Yeah… big mistake (especially after he throws his warglaives) :P

I didn’t realise how much the elementals hurt especially when you’re taking pictures of the sky so I tried standing next to one blade and DPSing the opposite elemental but I wasn’t able to kill him fast enough. After a second wipe, I logged onto my main to cut myself some gems and a meta netting me a nice stat boost. I ended up standing in the middle of the circle allowing me to kill both elements a lot easier. As expected, I received the achievement to say I had completed the raid.


However, I wasn’t expecting to see this in the loot window. Cool and I were trying to get the set for my newly boosted rogue so I was kind of bummed to see it here on a character who can’t even wield it but that wasn’t the end of it.


As I looted the item, I saw this…


Say what? The achievement only requires the ‘owner’ of a set of warglaives but note I only ventured in there for the first time today meaning the one Coolidge looted a couple of years ago must be the other half!!

How exciting to have another Guild Edition legendary achievement completed.


Now to see if I can get the other pieces from Hyjal.

  1. Congratulations on that achievement! Cat keeps going to MC in the hope of getting the other half of a sword she can’t equip. Maybe one day she’ll get lucky too!

    • Thanks. I had one half on my hunter and the other half on my priest for a while so I know how you feel. Good luck though :)

  2. As a warlock, I was often disappointed that my gear was all sinister-looking at the mage dresses were always so pretty. This set is no exception. And you’re right! It is quite unique! I don’t think I’ve even seen anyone with it on my server.

    • Yes, the lock sets definitely have a distinct look to them as well. Oddly enough, I always thought the Blood Queen look (from ICC) was cool but never realised it was a mage tier until quite recently.
