Ok, having dusted Mav off, and taken stock of him, I found he had 3 pieces of tier zero that I could upgrade to tier 0.5.. Five Thunders, which look kick ASS.. Last night I happened to scope out the AH and found to my surprize, no less than NINE pairs of elemental gauntlets (gloves for his elements set) and bid/won a set accordingly. And all this time I could have sworn they were BoP. :doh: Now he is at 4/8 Elements Reading into the stuff (nice walkthrough there) as to how to change these over, I find I have enough of the set to work on doing the first 2 exchange quests at this point, the first level for the bracers, and the next level for belt and gloves.. and all the crap in between. He also has the kilt, and now only requires the coif from Scholo, and the rest seem to all drop in UBRS? Chest is from Drakk, and boots and shoulders seem to both drop from the arena area in UBRS. So.. who else needs to go grind Sithilus for the 15 venom samples for step one and continue this series?
