Been absent from the blog, but I have been poking around in-game. My latest project has been leveling a Warrior alt that’s lay dormant for nearly 7 years. After leveling a Paladin this past year I discovered that I really enjoy tanking (who knew..?!), so I figured why not dust the Warrior off, throw some heirlooms on him and get him to 90. I love him! Warrior tanks are interesting and fun to play.
Apart from huntering in some random BGs and leveling alts, the other thing I’ve enjoyed doing is putting together transmog sets.
I just completed my Warrior’s set yesterday…
I wasn’t leveling this guy with a transmog plan, but when Ironfoe dropped for me on my first-ever run through BRD, I started looking around at different set ideas. I figured a weapon that rare deserved to be complimented by a sharp looking wardrobe.
I’m not really that keen on most of the Warrior dungeon sets, and I lean towards more of the classic looks, which is why the Lightforge Recolor set really caught my eye. My choice for shield was the King’s Bulwark. The set pieces are available in normal mode TBC dungeons, so it’s fairly easy to gather up; however, getting some of the pieces to drop for you can be a pain. I was able to gather most of the pieces while leveling through random dungeons, but I had to go back to grab the chest piece and boots.
The boots dropped during my first run of The Escape from Durnholde, but I lost the roll to a Ret Pally. After that run it took about 18 more attempts to get them to drop again. Neeedless to say, I’ve had about enough of that dungeon for awhile.
Heres a look at my Orc hunter transmog…
This set started when I snagged a cheap pair of Elven Chain Boots from the auction house. I’ve always liked the look of those boots for a hunter, so I went to see if there were any pieces to match. Turns out there are chest and legs that match. To finish off the set I added a couple of pieces of Fel Iron Chain (helm and gloves), some Thick Scale shoulders and a Der’izu belt. Lastly, I finished the set off with a Shrieking Bow. The bow really helps seal the look because it further ties in the shades of green present on the Fel Iron Chain, shoulders and belt.
As far as I’m aware, this set is pretty original. I’ve not seen it shown anywhere else, and it definitely came together organically. I more or less scanned the auction house – trying on different greens until I got a look that I liked.
I’m pretty happy with it!
and then there’s Garwulf…
Because I can, and because I really do like the look of it, I choose to roll with the old school Hunter PvP set. I have another transmog idea for a PvE set, but that one’s going to be tough. If I ever get that one finished you can bet that I’ll post screenshots.
My next mission will be to get my 90 Pally mogged out. He’s sporting a matched set of MoP quest plate, which looks decent, but I’m wanting to deck him out something a bit more fabulous. I’m leaning towards the Judgement Recolor for him.
The shield doesn’t jive too well, but my son insisted I use that look, so what was I to do but obey.
How about you guys . . . you enjoy transmogging as much as I do?
