A tailorable Cata-content level item, introduced in 5.1 beta. Very odd. It uses the cloth hands-model of
4.3 heroic dungeon set
, which should make it a epic-quality item, since it is of a high level for the expansion. My guess is that it is to help speed cloth-users through that expansion content, while also giving a source of income for tailors. The question is why they feel that way now. And why they didn't do so before in 4.3 and 5.0.
Edit: I found the answer, its for transmog.
is the only hand-slot item for the set, but its a quest reward, so if you got the plate or wand instead, you couldn't complete its transmog set. Now all Blizzard needs to do, is do this for every single raid-finder item we can no longer que for, and we'll be able to complete their sets too. :/
It made to live. Quick, learn it before they clean it up!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Blizzard! I actually really liked the look of this set for my Mage but I had already chosen the other quest reward and couldn't get the gloves. I even opened a ticket and offered to pay the vendor price of the axe for them but they wouldn't take the deal. Now I can complete this transmog set!
I think jar4677 is correct, out of the Whisperwind Regalia set the gloves were the only part that you could only get through quest rewards. Everything else dropped in HoT dungeons so they could be obtained repeatedly. Seems likely this pattern was added for transmog reasons.
There is a gnome in the starting zone named Bipsi, who is a mage trainer.. I wonder if these gloves belong to her!
I'm glad that they did this for you cloth wearers, but they didn't do it for other classes, take for example the blue and gold "healer" plate from the 4.3 dungeons, they don't offer any gloves at all, even from quest rewards, and obviously the model is available as the brown and green dungeon sets have matching gloves... also, the dps boots and healer boots for the plate sets are quest only items... all I'm saying is that if they're going to do it for cloth wearers, they ought to be fair and make the other pieces available to others classes/specs that can no longer get certain pieces bc they're quest rewards.
Despite being taught by Cataclysm Tailoring trainer at skill 65, it is listed as a Pandaria pattern.
