Phat Loot Phriday: Cowl of Sheet Lightning

Lots of the endgame cloth headpieces look the same actually, but it's a good look -- the pointy head, the glowing eyes. And nothing says power than a name like "sheet lightning."

Name: Cowl of Sheet Lightning (Wowhead, Thottbot, WoWDigger)
Type: Epic Cloth Head
Armor: 244
  • +67 Stamina, +68 Intellect
  • Meta and a Yellow socket, with a socket bonus of +9 spell power
  • Improves Haste rating by 48, and spellpower by 85

  • Restores 15 mana per 5 seconds, which is probably the tradeoff for having no spirit at all. But that's also what the gem is for, isn't it?
  • And "sheet lightning" is a real thing -- it's what happens when a lightning bolt never actually leaves the clouds, like a flashlight under your sheet while you're reading late at night after your parents sent you to bed. We're not quite sure how powerful that is (as a caster, wouldn't you want your spells to actually hit?), but, like this helm, it does look cool.
How to Get It: This is one of the first epics you'll likely pick up as a caster -- it drops from the 10-man version of Thaddius in Naxxramas. It's not quite the best helm you'll find (and if you need +hit still, you should probably look elsewhere, though you can put a nice Rigid Autumn's Glow in the socket on this one to help you out). But if you're wandering through 10-man Naxx as a caster these days and need an upgrade, this is a nice one to take.

Getting Rid of It: Sells back to vendors for 5g 64s 2c, and disenchants into a Strange Dust. No, I'm only kidding -- like all of the Wrath epics (and all of the items we've been doing lately), this one turns into an Abyss Crystal.
