Boomkin Legendary #3 - The Lady and the Child

When I got my boomkin legendary (my 2nd from one of those Legionfall caches) it was the shoulders, The Lady and The Child. I didn't know the lore behind it and Tacky was shocked!

It is named after the 2 moons of Azeroth - The White Lady and the Blue child.

From WoWpedia:

Azeroth has two moons. Various cultures may have different names for them, but usually they play on a mother-and-child theme, as the white moon is much larger than the blue one. Once every four hundred and thirty years, the two moons come into perfect alignment. This event is called the Embrace.

The White Lady
The larger, bright and silver moon is known as the White Lady or the Mother. The night elves know and worship it as Elune while the tauren refer to it as Mu'sha (the left eye of the Earthmother) in Sorrow of the Earthmother.

The Blue Child
The smaller, blue-green moon is known as the Blue Child or the Child. With the addition of weather effects to the game in Patch 1.10.0, the Blue Child vanished from the game, likely due to graphical errors. This was subsequently given an in-universe explanation as the Earthmother having "sent the Blue Child away to learn about the universe" because of the coming of the Burning Legion. Though still missing from the game, it did return in the lore as seen in Twilight of the Aspects and the [Dragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest] quest chain. It returned to the skies in-game with the release of Patch 5.0.4, prior to World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria.

It's a pretty cool legendary! That brings my total up to 10! Woot!
