The Man Behind the Mask

So in addition to travel form, another nice thing about hitting 30 is wearing a helm. Maybe there are some available before 30, but I’ve never seen one in the AH. Anyway, Gillir has shed his BElf Bandit mask for an Insignia Cap, as seen here:

I considered putting the BElf mask on the AH, but it has sentimental value (I got it the first night after getting BC) so it’ll pass on to Gillir’s sister-alt, Halja, since she’ll look best in it (warlocks and red just go together).

I wonder if others hold on to equipment for sentimental value, like the first blue you got in an instance, or something you grinded away for until it dropped. I’ve got a ton of equipment in the bank I need to sort through and vendor, but can’t seem to get myself to do it (not completely for sentimental reasons, though).

(On a technical note, I’ve been trying to figure out how to do the tooltip-mouseover trick with links but can’t do it. Any suggestions?)

  1. Hey, nice blog. I’ve only read two posts so far but I’m intrigued and plan on going through your archives!

    I know what you mean about holding onto gear for sentimental reasons. I have my full set of Valor armor in my bank and my Heavy Dark Iron Ring (the first end game epic I ever picked up). There are a couple of other pieces of gear in there too that I just can’t seem to toss out. I know that I will probably NEVER wear them, but I can’t get rid of them. Sucks being a packrat.

    About the mouseover trick, I asked the same question on my blog and I guess it’s some kind of plugin you can upload to your WordPress database (if you have FTP access and all that, which I don’t). Can’t tell you what it’s called, but maybe you could search for it.

  2. TY, Thodin.

  3. There is/was a warlock quest around 20th that was for a warlock only helm if I remember correctly. It has been over 2 years now.
    I also tend to keep first items I made or guildies made for me. I always was looking for larger bags or more bank space.

  4. I looked up leather helms on Thottbot and there are pre-30 ones, but it seems most drop from rare mobs or are dropped in 30+ areas. It looks like the lowest level leather helm is at 25. (There are some designated at level 1, but you can’t get them since they’re BOP and only available through higher-level quests; excepting the goggles made by engineering.)
