FigurePrint of my Shapeshifter
After yesterday's long blog post, I figured I would steer clear of the massive wall of text and show you pretty pictures instead. I present you with pictures of my FigurePrint of Shalansay, who is my main character in World of Warcraft. "Shal", as my friends call me, is a level 80 feral druid, talented for bear tanking, with a 2nd spec as a resto druid. In case you do not know, FigurePrints is a company founded by Ed Fries that can "print" your WoW character in 3D using hardened powder that is applied in layers and colored afterwards. Their site has cool details about the process and many podcasters have interviewed them in the past.
This FigurePrint was created about a year ago when The Burning Crusade was nearing its end. This immortalizes Shal's best TBC gear, which I used mainly to tank all the tier 4 content, from Karazhan to Magtheridon, and a few bosses in Zul'Aman. I think I got my T4 "Mantle of Malorne" shoulders about a week after I placed the FigurePrints order, but I still wore my arena season 2 shoulders a lot when tanking, especially since resilience in TBC helped tanks become uncrittable instead of just stacking defense. I still have the cool season 3 helmet, the shoulders and the ubiquitous "Earthwarden" in my bank, I just cannot get rid of these beauties. It would have been nice to get another print with my favorite weapon to date: Terestian's Stranglestaff! I still have it, maybe someday...
I've been meaning for a long time to post them online for all to enjoy, so here you go!
