Happy 4th of July to all my American friends!

Ok so since no one has hired me to be their progression raid tank (I know, I know but it’s still a “fantasy” game so I get a fantasy lol) I’ve been kicking around looking for stuff to do when I’ve run out of dailies.

My DH Vengence toon got her hidden artifact skin, so I thought I’d try the one for Havoc.

It’s a no go.

You need an item that drops from something – not a “proper” quest item it’s just a drop with no quest attached.

I had actually picked this up at some point because this was the one time I was smart enough to check my bank *before* spending hours farming for it.

So I looked it up on wowhead and you have to kill some mob flying way high up surrounded by clouds that knock you back.  If you fall too far, it resets and you have to start all over again.

Needless to say I couldn’t do it.

I couldn’t kill the stupid thing fast enough in either spec before getting tossed up in the air and use my wings to slowly descend to try to get into the tiny part of the cloud that doesn’t throw you out so you get to do it all over again.

Ok no problem I don’t care that much for skins anyway.

So…how about we try to find the hidden artifact skin for my Rogue?

Assassination’s hidden artifact appearance – “The Cypher of Broken Bones” – drops from Underbelly rares.

Yup.  A PvP zone.

I stealthed around there for a while until a rare popped and I got killed before I could get a hit in so no loot.

I mean really Blizzard… if you don’t want me to have the skins just say so.

Well played Blizzard, well played….
