Warlocks are evil creatures who dabble with the fel magics that most other people stay away from. Obviously this means we have a certain… image to uphold. It’s why our tier sets have huge spikes and skulls, and other awesome looking things. A Warlock should look good.
So let’s turn it around. Let’s find the worst possible Warlock outfit available in the game. Something that would make other Warlocks shun you and not let you near them. Something that would make your demon take one look at you and return back to the Twisting Nether laughing all the way.
Now, I really don’t think there’s anything I could do that could top the Gardening Soccer Mom look that Tome of the Ancient coaxed Ironsally into, or the “Hug a Tree of Life today” wannabe-Druid outfit concocted by Erinys. But I couldn’t resist the challenge of at least trying to come up with something suitable. Or rather, unsuitable.
I took a look in Kalaneia‘s bank to see what sort of horrid combination I could make using the things she’s collected while leveling. It wasn’t too hard to find some colors that clashed in a quite eye-bleeding way. Poor ‘Neia! When I put her in that garb, the trainers in the Sanctum would let her Imp, Pagnar, in, but not her!
Azure Silk Hood, Talbar Mantle (no longer obtainable), Embersilk Robe, Joanna’s Sash, Phoenix Pants, Phoenix Gloves, Walking Boots, Captain’s Cloak, Medicine Staff
The only things I bought new for this outfit were the mud-colored cloak and the staff.
Then I wanted to see what sort of un-Warlock-like Transmogrification Template Kit I could conjure up using MogIt. Taking a similar approach to Navimie, I decided to go for a pseudo-Healy-Priest look. I started with Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt, a gorgeous recolor of the Devout Priest’s kilt. There is only one similarly recolored piece of the Devout set, the Lightning Infused Mantle, most often seen nowadays as a favorite complement to the Robes of the Exalted and Robes of the Guardian Saint. Unless I’m working with only the limited gear available in a single toon’s inventory, I seem to be incapable of creating a true “clown suit” anymore, and I ended up with an outfit that was well-coordinated, but still much too atrocious to actually wear.
I presented it to a panel of representative Warlocks, and was met with reactions ranging from dumbfounded to weeping to vigorous rejection/denial.
Watcher’s Cowl, Lightning Infused Mantle, Arachnidian Armor, Arachnidian Girdle, Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt, Arachnidian Gloves (or the orange with aqua trim Serpent Gloves), Extravagant Boots of Malice, Orange Mageweave Shirt, Hibernal Cloak (optional), Plasma Foil, Dreamseeker Dandelion
And as long as I was working with Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt and the Lightning Infused Mantle anyway, I figured I might as well put together a more, er, respectable Transmogrification Template Kit intended for actual Healy-type Priests.
Cowl of Benevolence, Lightning Infused Mantle, Aurora Armor or Buccaneer’s Vest or Stonecloth Vest, Bridenbrad’s Sash or Sutarn’s Ring or Tentacular Belt, Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt, Arachnidian Bracers, Replica Virtuous Gloves, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Cloak of Whispering Shells, Staff of Divine Infusion or Razorwind Staff or Staff of Athen’a
