Power Torrent is the best weapon enchant for classes using mana in Cataclysm. Too bad it is overwhelming bright and all but hides the smallest of weapons completely. Through lucky guesses and farming I have found some weapons that have with innate effects that negate Power Torrent and other enchants and runes. Read more…
Generally my hunter? doesn’t look all that hunter-y. Gimme them bright colors and ridiculous armor styles. In this case though, I decided something like actual armor would be good. The things you can do with your inventory when you have more sets and pieces then you really know what do to with. The only even relatively new piece to my poor over stuffed inventory is the gloves. Running a friend through Naxx25 because they want a set can be an excellent idea. He even shared some of his luck and the lovely Gloves of Calculated Risk dropped. I adore them. Purple glow stones, fingerless and backless? So win.
It is a simple and dark set, with purple, which always makes me happy. The reason I didn’t just go for the entirety of the Naxx25 mail set is that the pants and the back of the chest armor bring in red. Also, I really don’t have the luck to get a full set like that. And despite the stompy Boots of the Renewed Flight being the matching footwear, I just didn’t want any red. Hence the use of solid black Bloodmail Legguards. It definitely makes me sad that the Bloodmail set is no longer available, just because of those pants.
My hunter looks like a hunter while my druid looks like an elf delving back into her trollish ancestry, my deathknight looks like someone dripped her into a bucket of paint, and my poor shaman looks something like a gladiator. Does mogging not entertain?
After a long hiatus of no new outfits (lack of bag space is starting to scare me) I finally finished a new outfit on my hunter.
It’s not quite 100%, but this works rather well for now.
I have had this set in planning for what feels like forever and finally decided that dammit I shall get it! It isn’t quite what I had originally blamed for an Illidari themed outfit but raid drops are being unkind.
I still would rather have Mail of Fevered Pursuit on instead of the current one, but it has yet to appear, damn Archimonde. I may also change to a more silvered bow of some sort, but this one is appropriately glow-y and corrupted to match the look. Or maybe Rhok’delar since that bow is used by Satyrs in The Arcatraz and they are evil/corrupted are they not?
New outfit complete(ish)! I am a happy camper. (yeah, the more I look the more I need a different chest armor on, the sleeves and above the tabard matter!)
As always sets are being plotted and rearranged on other characters as well, but nothing completed all that recently.
But it is an awesome excuse for more mogging sets. Unique transmogs for each spec’s set of armor is very important for my deathknight. Knowing what gear I have on at a glance is the best.
One of my favorite sets ever on my deathknight is the Imbued Plate Armor. I love the bright contrasting colors and just the shape and design of the armor. Even better is that there is 3 other sets of armor using that patterning: Commander, Hyperion, and Enchanted Thorium. Just, so good.
I decided to use my Imbued set for one spec and once I came to that I realized my other spec had to use a recolor. Hyperion is brighter so it beat out Commander. See? Quite the decision maker I am.
Hyperion is awesomely bright, but there was no way I was using the full set. Chest, legs, boots, and gloves are just overwhelming together and I like to mix it up anyhow. This is my Frost set and it amuses me to use the red set for Frost instead of for blood while my Blood set gets the blue set.
The shoulders, gloves, and boots let the Hyperion Armor shine without it being an overwhelming amount of color. If I had the luck I would also use Helm of Blazing Glory.
And then in direct contrast to my dps set, my tank set:
I’ve definitely posted this set before, but its entirely too pretty on my dk and in comparison to its counterpoint set to not include it again.
The cooler colors make using Imbued boots and gloves not quite so ridiculous to me as the Hyperion.
And that is my deathknight at the moment.
In addition to getting actual, usable gear for my guild’s future Herald of the Titans runs getting a cool transmog set(s) was at the top of my list. I compiled the blue Deathbone set or something near enough to make me happy, but I don’t believe in having only one transmog set. What if I end up with a dps set that I’ll need to use? And having a set of Cataclysm ilvl gear for running randoms for jp? 2 transmog sets is the minimum I need in that case. Read more…
And that is basically my motto when it comes to transmog sets. My hunter is generally the target of such sets, though my deathknight has some spectacularly bright sets of her own. Read more…
is the perfect excuse to spend time in MogIt and design some new looks. Building a mogging set for a Herald of the Titans applies an interesting bit of restrictions. Locking the character at level 80 now leads to 9 levels worth of items you can’t use along with making soloing older content harder. It also means that there is a large amount of gear at 80 that is also hard to get. Convincing friends to run you through ICC on a toon that won’t be able to equip that gear is a little bit much. Unless they are all really bored. Read more…
And it’s even the one I meant to complete today! If not quite in the fashion originally planned.
Mountain Spaulders are not the shoulders I set out to get for this set, but Naxxramas 10 man was unkind to me. I had planned for Pauldrons of Havoc from the 4 Horsemen or Retcher’s Shoulderpads from Patchwerk, but both items refused to drop.
This is one of those cases where the actual may be better then what had been planned, because I adore asymmetric shoulder armor and had been looking for a reason to use them.
Mountain Spaulders work really well to my eye. They have fur to match the fur on the pants along with a scaled/hardened leather edge to also match detailing on the chest/legs/gloves. I’m really happy with this result. All that is maybe missing is a hat, but until then I shall enjoy my asymmetry a great deal.
