Distraction, thy name is RIFT


I really haven’t been playing World of Warcraft recently. I was on overnights at work, which did not let me raid, and I wasn’t all that inspired to play by Tanaan (Bruy, if you see this, I swear I’ll reappear this Monday). I might get back into it now if only because that infinite drake mount from Timewalking.

Until then though, I will continue to let RIFT be a huge, very pretty distraction.

Ahoy, obsession island..

am I welcome to come to shore?

Yes? let’s go then.

I might have a brand new obsession with a gear combination. Part of it could be caused by my bitterness at how it is out of my druid’s reach, the rest of the root of the obsession is just because it is damn cool. And that my rogue can get her hands on it. Full steam ahead and sets to explosion!

(All sets today will be rogue only)

Hunter mogging in Warlords

And starting my hunter’s planned sets is one that is literally impossible for her to get. Damn that chest armor, damn the worgen starting zone. Also damn having done Loremaster before the arrival of transmog.

Fucking Worgen Starting Zone

Including what I named this set felt relevant. No set list because in the time between starting this post and finishing this post I deleted it out of bitterness.


Blue glowy bits is essentially Rhuan. Sometimes I branch out and yet I always come back to blue gem accents.

  • Waterborne Shoulderguards
  • Undying Chestguard
  • Handgrips of the Savage Emissary
  • Waistguard of Hatred (Heroic)
  • Leggings of the Stone Halls
  • Undying Boots
  • Avalanche

I love contrasting colors, but the route that the Wayfaring mail crafted sets went just feels so random. So I mixed up the very much blue pants with other very much blue items.


My favorite shoulders in game. Well, i say that a about a lot of items, but really, I might mean it.

  • Waterborne Shoulderguards
  • Aberrant Chestguard of Torment (heroic)
  • Mitts of Burning Hail
  • Binder’s Chain of Unending Summer
  • Wayfaring Legguards (640)
  • Quakestompers (heroic)

And mixed up the very red pieces of the Wayfaring 640 ilvl set. So very red.


Um, more shoulders?

  • Waterborne Shoulderguards
  • Wayfaring Tunic (640)
  • Gloves of Cacophony (heroic)
  • Belt of the Beloved Companion (heroic)
  • Lightning Well Legguards (heroic)
  • Wayfaring Boots (640)

Seriously, bright green gems to go with the red on silver armor that ties to the blue on silver because of the green (not sparkly gemmed) bits? its so much. Again, separating out Wayfaring items.


Ha! I switched shoulders finally.

  • Wayfaring Shoulderguards (640)
  • Tunic of the Unblinking Vigil
  • Fiery Obelisk Handguards
  • Waistguard of Hatred
  • Wasteland Ringmail Leggings
  • Minelayer’s Padded Boots (LFR)

I love these gloves. Not all that sure why given there is absolutely nothing resembling a set in game for them.Mythic Stormwind

Also, why do I always like things out of Mythic? I don’t run Mythic.

  • Yaungol Slayer’s Spaulders
  • Moss-Woven Mailshirt (Mythic)
  • Stormwind Chain Gauntlets
  • Ranger’s Chain of Unending Summer
  • Tangleheart Legguards
  • Greaves of the Earthbinder

Husk of Naraxis, Husk of Naraxis, Husk of Naraxis! I don’t know why I love it so much, just that I very much do, and have for years. Also, I totally need to go see if the Ruffled Chaplet has decided to exist again. This is very important.Naraxis

Um, oops?

  • Waterborne Shoulderguards
  • Husk of Naraxis
  • Interwoven Scale Bracers
  • Binder’s Chain of Unending Summer
  • Morningscale Leggings (heroic)
  • Sharpeye Gauntlets (heroic)
  • Undying Boots

One can skip doing a combo glove/bracers and just use Handgrips of the Savage Emissary or something else.

I am very sorry Rhuan, so sorry. I even actually wore this one for a raid! But you get a MogIt picture because I couldn’t handle wearing this for very long. Skulls man.Trailmastery

Another set I like the idea of more than actually wearing it.

  • Imperfect Specimens 27 and 28 (heroic)
  • Trailseeker Vest
  • Tsunami Gloves
  • Monsoon Belt
  • Leggings of Beast Mastery
  • Rock-Steady Treads

Give me the pants, damn my expensive taste the crafted pants, upgraded twice. Also, I am totally making a series of sets using this shoulder model in all colors.  I have at least 2 using the blue, 1 using the green (which needs more work before i dare show it), 1 or 2 with the black, and now a planned handful with the red. Shifting colors and not styles makes me happy. I do it with my warrior’s sets when I can and have reason to have dual sets.Wayhero

Firelands continues to be rude, but I shall not give up. I have a need.

  • Hero’s Pauldrons
  • Chief Brigadier Armor
  • Clawshaper Gauntlets (heroic)
  • Ravager’s Cord
  • Wayfaring Legguards (ilvl 670, upgrade the second)
  • Decimation Treads (heroic)

I have the birdy already Alysrazor, now just gimme the gloves and I can leave you alone. We are not talking about how I had the gloves and the boots them months ago, and eventually vendored them because I had no plans to use them at the time and bagspace is at a premium.

Because I want to use these oddball gloves a ridiculous amount. Also, more of those pauldrons.


I’ll admit it its some odd colors, but that’s all Blizzard’s fault.

  • Hero’s Pauldrons
  • Spitfire Breastplate
  • Acolyte’s Shirt (otherwise it’s a bit too much like a mail bikini for me)
  • Moss-Covered Gauntlets
  • Voidscale Belt
  • Scale Leggings of the Skirmisher
  • Bloodlust Boots

If it isn’t pretty clear, I really like some of the crafted things this go around.


  • Blue Dragonscale Shoulders (Blizz, please to let blue dragonscales be obtainable for those who don’t have their shoulders)
  • Traveling Tunic
  • Replica Gauntlets of Elements
  • Belt of the Black Eagle
  • Wayfaring Boots (ilvl 655, upgrade the first)
  • Tempestuous Longbow

Now a set with a theme and even better out of pieces I already have farmed. (I forgot to screenshot when I wore it to raid, i took it off after).

Honor Hold

I liked it, but wasn’t feeling in the mood to continue wearing it.

  • Pauldrons of Midnight Whispers
  • Undying Chestguard
  • Honor Hold Tabard
  • Corpse Scarab Handguards
  • Ornate Girdle
  • Legguards of the Undisturbed
  • Wayfaring Boots (ilvl 655)
  • Bal’ra’s Compound Bow

Rhuan has no bagspace and I am almost surprised Mog-It hasn’t yelled at me about the sheer number of sets saved. I spare everyone’s eyes by not actually posting everything I poke at. And that is why I have been in the habit recently of creating new sets using only pieces I already have, or can very easily acquire (as in in my alt bank or my friend’s).

Now to not post anything again for months! Maybe I’ll post some rogue and mage sets, and druid too soon instead. We shall see.

And Warlords mogging is a go

Even if most of my sets don’t necessarily use Warlords pieces, and if they do I have expensive taste, in mats or effort.

Pretty in Pink

I’ve come to the realization that, really, all character’s need a mog that is pink-themed at the very least, if not entirely pink. And if not pink, purple is a must. Read more…

It’s Mine! All Mine!

Hooray! The heirloom bow is mine! Which, i am very excited for 2 reason. An heirloom in and of itself is a huge relief for leveling, especially a weapon. Just makes going out there and questing to my heart’s content easier. The second reason? I have always, always wanted a bow of this model. Before I was really aware of Wowhead.com during the Burning Crusade years, I thought if I ran Ramparts enough times a bow with that model would have to drop! I eventually realized I was very very wrong. This bow is the culmination of years of ‘but why can’t I have that?”

In honor of that, a new mog for my hunter Rhuan.


And along with the bow, it’s totally an excuse to wear my Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade, and those pants.

  • Perpetual Static Spaulders
  • Ghostworld Chestguard
  • Tabard of the Scarlet Crusade
  • Perpetual Static Guantlets
  • Guardian’s Linked Girdle
  • Overlord’s Legguards
  • Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Sabatons of Alacrity
  • Hellscream’s Warbow

Rogue Mogging to the Max

I am just slightly enamored with my rogue, just slightly. The fact that I can solo things that I had so many issues with on my druid until pretty recently is only part of that. The main bit of it is that i essentially have limitless options when it comes to making new mogs. Unless  I did something silly like vendor a quest reward with no duplicates, there is no limitations on the mogs I can feasibly get.

That might be enabling me a bit much if I’m at all honest about it.
