Lefou, I'm Afraid I've Been Thinking....

"A dangerous pastime"

"I know"

Bonus points to the first person who comments the movie reference.

My wife and I go through this little routine whenever one of us gets a harebrained (or not) idea. And I have been thinkinating...

The fact that I'll transfer one of my toons from Kael'thas to Andorhal is a forgone conclusion. Yes, I will; here's your $55, Blizzard. My thinking has centered around "Which one?"

Here are the non-candidates:
Dwarfvader
Level 80 Hunter
Mining/Engineering
This name would make absolutely no sense if I gave it to an Orc, Troll, Tauren, or Blood Elf. I love the fact that he's a dwarf and has this name. Not gonna move.

Daxynn
Level 39 Paladin
Mining/Herbalism
Too low level and professions don't really help out. Staying put.

Respynot
Level 26 Mage
Herbalism/Skinning
Too low level, name won't make sense on Andorhal (it's a dig at one of my guildies in Blood for Blood), and professions don't really help out. Out of the running.

Vanco
Level 80 Death Knight
Mining/Jewelcrafting
My only Gnome coupled with the one DK per server (yeah, I could delete Daxjin) puts this guy in the do not move pile.

The real candidates:
Daxe
Level 72(maybe 71...) Priest
Herbalism/Inscription
The original Daxenos. He became second fiddle to Daxie during BC due to the Draenai racial being better and never caught up.
Pros: He has dual spec, maxed Herbalism and ~425 Inscription, epic and Heirloom flight, and he's my "extra" priest on Kael'thas.
Cons: Not level capped, and Jay has Inscription covered.
Verdict: Not too likely.

Rysteranch
Level 73 (74?) Hunter
Skinning/Leatherworking
The BC raiding hunter who stepped aside for Dwarfvader.
Pros: Maxed Skinning and ~426 Leatherworking, epic and Heirloom flight, and one of four hunters on Kael'thas.
Cons: Not level capped, and Leatherworking is only useful for my leather/mail wearers.
Verdict: Not too likely.

Smoochie
Level 73 Hunter
Herbalism/Alchemy
Another hunter created to cover professions.
Pros: Maxed professions, Heirloom flight, and one of four hunters on Kael'thas.
Cons: Not level capped.
Verdict: Possible.

Nitrodax
Level 70 Hunter
Enchanting/Blacksmith
Another hunter created to cover professions.
Pros: Maxed professions with some Dream Shard recipes, Heirloom flight, and one of four hunters on Kael'thas.
Cons: Not level capped.
Verdict: More possible.

Daxie
Level 80 Priest
Tailoring/Jewelcrafting
The BC raiding priest that usurped Daxenos and went on to heal quite a bit of Wrath including all of Naxx, VoA, Sarth w/ no drakes, and parts of Ulduar.
Pros: Maxed Jewelcrafting with a lot of Jewelcrafting Token cuts, epic flight, level 448 Tailoring, Raid and Heroic ready to collect badges for Heirloom items.
Cons: Kael'thas loses what is arguably my most developed character.
Verdict: Sold!

But, I'd solicite your comments on the matter. One of the most compelling Pros is the ability to smash through some Heroics with Jay and Robin to collect up badges for the Heirloom items. I'm thinking I might be able to make it happen this weekend....

....oh, and before I transfer, I'll be loading her up with gold, Netherweave bags, and other items that might be useful (Alliance only pets, maybe?). Time to look into any other considerations that I have to take into account before moving.
