Frozen Shadow Weave. Yup, that’s why Lilac’s a tailor.
So now we’re in Wrath and I’m looking at the goodies:
– Flying Carpet
The rest of everything is BoE. So it looks good on the surface.. but not so much when you dig into it.
Tailors get to make for themselves only the Sanctified Spellthread and Master’s Spellthread which are an upgrade from Azure Spellthread and Shining Spellthread Well.. except that you can get the exact same stats on spellthread if you find a tailor who has the proper rep to make Brilliant Spellthread or Sapphire Spellthread. So even without being a tailor, you have access to the same leg enchants as the BoP Tailoring ones.
Embroideries.. these are on-yourself only enchantments to your cloak. Sounds nice huh? Currently available there are two that might interest a warlock:
Darkglow Embroidery – Requires tailoring 400 – Proc: Restore 300 mana when you cast a spell (not sure if it procs on dot ticks)
Lightweave Embroidery – Requires tailoring 400 – Proc: 1000-1200 holy damage (doesn’t appear to proc on dot ticks)
Note.. neither procs on dots. So for a warlock it really looks like Enchant Cloak – Greater Speed +23 haste is better.
Flying carpets. Whee. Seriously? That’s the only compelling reason left for me to stay a tailor? Geez.
My baseball rules are weak.. if you get a foul ball on the third one, doesn’t it count as the third strike?
Tailoring for the long run isn’t looking like a strong contender.
