The beginnings and endings of holidays provide frequent opportunities to change my Transmogrification kits. Here’s what my characters have been wearing since Love is in the Air ended.
Stonecloth Epaulets, Mystic’s Robe, Willow Belt, Seer’s Cuffs + Heavy Linen Gloves, Lushwater Cloak, Squire’s Shirt
On the one hand, the furry look of the Stonecloth Epaulets is great fun, because most other items with that appearance are leather. On the other hand, their white color makes finding equally low-level robes that look good with them somewhat difficult. The brown “fur” Outlander’s Pauldrons are much easier to work with, but require level 57 to wear.
This is what Kaohana was wearing immediately prior to Love is in the Air, and she went back to it immediately after; I just hadn’t gotten around to posting it before the holiday.
Tracker’s Headband, Forest Leather Mantle, Archer’s Jerkin & Trousers, Deviate Scale Belt, Dervish gloves & boots
A set with a name like “Archer’s” seems like it ought to be ideal for a Hunter. Alas, this set is leather, and even among NPCs, it is more frequently seen on Druids. These NPC Druids, found on Shalandis Isle in the Ghostlands, are wearing the Archer’s core items with furry Bristlebark accessories.
The pattern for the Deviate Scale Belt is no longer obtainable in the game, but you can still have one made if you can find a Leatherworker who already has the pattern — or you could just watch the AH for the Archer’s set belt, which is identical.
Grace of the Plainshawk
Plainshawk set with Red Belt of Gentle Persuasion, Ogre-Hunter Boots, and Spear of Xuen
This recolor of the crafted Misthide set is readily obtained by questing through Valley of the Four Winds.
Warmonger’s Pauldrons, Rough Bronze Cuirass, Replica Cord of Five Thunders, Battle Scarred Leggings, Fortified Gauntlets, Talhide Lined-Boots, Spell Axe of the Speaker, Big Black Mace, Thunder Bluff Doublet
I’d enjoyed playing my low-level Orc Shaman as Enhancement, so I decided to change mini-Kam’s questing offspec to Enhancement. This outfit combines ideas from the Element-Tamer outfit I designed for Mog Madness and the Mog Busting outfits I designed for Cymre’s Orc Huntress, Tallys.
Argent and Aurum
First Responder’s Pauldrons, Kadrak’s Breastplate, Myrmidon’s Girdle, Electrostatic Legguards, Mail Combat gauntlets & boots
An ideal outfit for any mail-wearer who wishes to declare his or her allegiance to the Argent Crusade.
Ravager’s Mantle, Silvermoon Armor, Ornate Girdle, Electrostatic Legguards, Gauntlets of Divinity*, Radiant Boots, Skyfire Hawk-Bow
Samaramon’s recent “Sin’Draenei” outfits reminded me that I had a mail outfit planned using the same tunic and bow.
I recommend the Glimmering Mail gloves & boots for those who don’t have the Gauntlets of Divinity from old Scarlet Monastery.
Ow Mon, Me Eyes!
Skom Spaulders, Formidable chestpiece, Frostscale Belt, Felstone Leggings, Sundered gauntlets, Sandals of the Elder Sage, Carapace Breaker, Eye of the Ancient Spirit (LFR)
As I was browsing through MogIt looking for things to go with the cyan and magenta LFR version of Gara’jal’s shield, I was struck by how nicely the color of the Formidable chestpiece matched the color of the edge of the shield. Not much later, one showed up on my AH for a very decent price. Once I had the chestpiece in hand, I noticed how well the shield coordinated with my Carapace Crusher mace, too. The Sundered gloves completed the flow of pale blue color from the mace in the main hand up across the chest and down to the shield in the off hand. The Skom shoulders and Felstone leggings tied in the mauvey tones from the shield. I originally thought I might want to use the magenta Netherstorm Greaves for this set, but when I tried them, they were too bright. Fortunately, the Valor/rep shoes coordinated sufficiently well with the leggings. Then, I just needed to find a suitable belt. A quick survey of my Leatherworking belt patterns turned up the Frostscale belt as a suitable fit. It’s perhaps not the most perfect or ideal outfit to go with this eye-catching shield — but it will do.
Hyperion set with Runic Plate Shoulders, Mageflame Cloak, and Scarlet Filigreed Shirt
This is one of those “recipe” sets that just looks fabulous “as-is”. Playing mostly Horde, I can’t help but associate it with the Sin’dorei.
Blood and Shadow
Tyrant’s Epaulets, Darkcrest breastplate, Goblin Girdle, Legguards of the Shattered Hand, Bloodforged gloves & boots, Sky Darkener’s Shroud of Blood, Massacre Sword
With the Bloodforged Guard and Blood Knight Tabard, this would make a great variation on the more common Blood Knight ensembles. The Dragonmaw Tabard would also go well with this set.
Noble Plate Pauldrons, Blacksoul Protector’s Hauberk, Belt of Might, Flintlocke’s Piloting Pants, Spiritualist’s Gauntlets, Golden Cenarion Greaves, Scryers Tabard, Yellow Martial Shirt
For all that they are part of Thrall’s iconic Warchief armor, I’ve found Flintlocke’s Piloting Pants to be rather tricky to fit into outfits. I think this one turned out nicely — though I was tempted to silly it up with the bright yellow Underworld Helm. The tabard really pulls the ensemble together. Because the chestpiece is mostly covered by the tabard, it just needs to be dark with silverish or goldish trim. The Stormforged belt or Borak’s Belt of Bravery would be suitable for those who can’t wear the Warrior-specific belt.
