    Cool This could be the best deal ever!

    I was on my Shaman in org a few hours ago, when someone in trade was looking for a LW looking for some crafts.

    I saw his message in trade saying

    [Trade] Looking for LW, will pay nice reward!!!

    Usally when i see "Nice Reward" usally its just 20g, my shaman has a few classic recipies that i get contacted about for crafting.

    The Convo went like this

    Me > Buyer : Hi, Please click here on my [Leatherworking] for what you need

    Buyer > Me: yeah, i need the Heavy Scorpid Set made please

    Me > Buyer: Yeah sure i can make that for you, do you have the mats?

    Buyer > Me: everything except the scorpids scales

    Usally they ask me to A) Buy the parts or B) if i can farm em, and sometimes i just cant be bothered, but this convo, made me just go with it

    Me > Buyer: Hmm, lemme check wowhead for a sec

    Check out wowhead for the drops, so it appears a trip to Sithilus is in order then, YAY /sarcasm

    Me > Buyer: Um...It looks like i have to go to Sithilus to farm some scorpids, this could be awhile?

    Buyer > Me: No worries Sham, i have nothing else to do, and trust me you will like the reward im going to offer you.|

    So off i go to good ol Sithilus, spent an hr farming up the scales needed for his set he wanted, he wispers an hr later asking if i got em all, which im like "Yeah hearthing back now" he still mentions this "Reward" hes on about

    So i make the parts and it came to the trade

    LO AND FREAKING BEHOLD i get THIS in the trade window!



    Im freaking the fuck out asking him is this a joke, he goes like this to me:

    "Sham, you did something no other LW did for me, you actually went and farmed the materials needed for me, other LW's blew me off and said it wasnt worth their time, you did something nice for me, now this is for you, when you get to 90"

    Im actually stunned beyond all belief, that this DK, done this.

    It goes to show sometimes, you do something awesome for someone, you get something back

    So 476 shoulders and leggings - very nice! Combine those with the crafted chest and gloves and you'll be well on your way into LFR!

    This reminds me greatly of the Derren Brown show about luck, and how people who are 'lucky' generally go out of their way to do things, thus providing more opportunities that could provide them a reward that would be deemed 'Lucky'. So by going out of your way and helping this guy, you got a reward from it, not really lucky at all, it was your own initiative. Good on you

    That was really nice of the guy

    However I didn't think these items were all that big of a deal, they seem to drop really frequently , I was farming for an hour for meat and wood last night and got the helm/shoulders/2 boots/belt and legs

    Still it's nice to see folks being generous

    those items, when combined with the mojo you get from the weekly "gather 150 of each resource" quest in the barrens (also gives 200vp) makes a 489 ilvl item with ONE random stat for your current spec. So if you want them for a diff spec make sure u switch b4 u combine.

    the item i made on my frost dk was chest, it was 489, had str, stam and like 1200 expertise on it.

    also, i got 2x chests then one of each hands, legs, belt and wrists on my first day out there doing the 150x quest, so these aren't very rare.

    Actually, I think they're 489 ilvl? Nice of the guy but I was a little annoyed that after you combine them & make the item it's soulbound... would've been a little nicer for alts/AH if combined armor was boe - most 90s doing these are well above needing these & to farm the weekly quest is sort of annoying. I definitely wouldn't want to do it on an alt.

    Tons of these things are flooding the AH so it shouldn't be too hard to pick up the rest if you don't mind doing the weekly quest for each piece of armor. I just vendored mine for 5g each - finishing the weekly I found 2x shoulders, helm & pants.

    I'd say that's a bad deal. If you have a lock and assist him with AoE while he does this:

    You can probably get a full set in a hour. I don't know if they're worth anything though, maybe better to buy from AH?
