For those who forgot where Howling Fjord is:
It is one of the starting zones in Northrend.To be honest, I've always starting from Borean Tundra so there isn't many things I can tell about Howling Fjord. There are lots of wolfs, vyrkuls and Shoveltusks. By the way have you ever seen Shoveltusk face? When I was doing some printscreens I was able to capture this unusual look. I must say they are really handsome!
Ok but let's go back to transmogrification. I've decide I will create something connected with wolves because I will never be as epic as Shoveltusk. I took my wolf pet, extra fluffy pants and got something like this:
It may look as simple transmo created from green items however it wasn't so easy to put together! The hardest part was for sure chest. When I've decided to create this set I thought that I will get it fast. According to wowhead Lionfur Armor drops from only one mob. It is low lvl rare lion in Mulgore. In Pandaria we learned that if something drops from one rare spawn it is usually 20%-100% drop rate. Not this time. It seems that this stupid lion doesn't drop this chest. I spend hours camping him, killing, dancing at his corpse and I've never seen it. Here is photo of me crying over his corpse:
After days, weeks and even months of checking AH and killing this lion I got it. I bought it on AH and I guess reason why it finally appeared there was Salvage Yards. All greens available in game drops from there so you can be lucky enough to get Lionfur Armor. Two weeks after i bought it my BF got it from Salvage chest what confirms this.
Thanks for new alchemy potions I can show you how this transmo look on both male and female pandas:
