We haven't done any cloth in a while, so here's a cool-looking hood that you can get by running a Heroic this weekend.

Name: Forgotten Shadow Hood (Wowhead, Thottbot, Wowdigger)
Type: Rare Cloth Head
Armor: 236
Abilities:
  • +54 Stamina, +44 Intellect, +66 Spirit, which makes it excellent for Warlocks or healers.

  • Meta socket and a Blue Socket, to be used as per whatever you need. Socket bonus of +8 Haste rating.
  • And increases spell power by 82, which is very nice for a blue headpiece, actually. This is an excellent all-round caster helmet. It's not epic, so obviously you'll be able to get better gear while raiding, but it's got solid stats for almost any caster, and the gems will let you fill in some of the stats you might be missing on other gear. An excellent piece to head into raiding with.
How to Get It: This one drops from my boss, Salramm the Fleshcrafter in Caverns of Time: Stratholme. I say "my boss" because I am convinced (probably simply because of my own ego) that Salramm, is named after me (my last name is Schramm, and they seem close enough for government work, so I'm claiming him anyway). He's not too hard, even in heroic mode, just tank, spank, and keep an eye out for the adds. Bring him down, and odds are pretty good you'll see this hood. Win the roll and it's yours.

Getting Rid of It: When you do get an epic headpiece, a vendor will give you 4g 40s 97c for this one (shame the prices don't rise when you add the gems in), or you can disenchant it fora Dream Shard.
