Anyone in the guild knows that even before transmogrification came out, I had been collecting armor sets that looked good for no other reason than that. Transmogrification was one of my favorite additions to the game, ever. I haven’t really taken the time to ever post about my transmogs though. And so here I will. I’ll do one to three characters at a time. Some of my transmogs aren’t anything more than Tier sets, but a few a piece meal that I put together myself. Today I will start out with my cloth wearers. My priest, Elgar, wears the T5 set, while the mage, Schubert, and warlock, Rossini, both have their own outfits that are made of different crafted or collected pieces. Rossini’s is most unique of the three…or so I thought.
As mentioned, Elgar wears the priest T5 set. You’ve all likely seen this set as it is one of the most popular transmogs among priests, additionally, Blizzard has used this armor set for NPCs as well, including Illidari Archon (Black Temple) and Archbishop Benedictus, from Hour of Twilight instance. There are no real surprises hear for gear selections. I think this is the prettiest of all the Priest Tiers. The first time I saw someone with those wings I wanted them so badly. The set is “holy” looking and has nice simple colors and patterns, complimented by the matching staff and a simple white cloak.

Schubert is “hand-crafted” but still not very unique. He uses the tailor-made PvP Pandaria set. Schubert is my cloth toon most likely to be re-transmogged. I haven’t found sets or items that really screamed frost mage, what sealed the deal for Schubert was when I got the staff he’s using on a LK run. The staff combined with the shoulders were a good match that sort of pulled the whole look together. It feels like a cold outfit, perfect for a frost mage.

Rossini is one of my most unique transmogs, the other belongs to Troutwort. You find that one item and you build a whole outfit around it. That item was Wicked Witch’s Hat. I got it back when we raided Karazhan and saved it ever since. The rest eventually fell into place and was a hodge podge of crafted items and just crap I happened across that went with his look. The funny thing about him is that I don’t feel he’s very scary as a warlock, I feel he’s almost comical…this suits the character feel as he was also the “red-headed step child” so the outfit solidifies that sort of feeling that he’s not good at anything…until well, he burns your face off.

It wasn’t until after all this transmog though that I was leveling up another character and happened to see this guy, Magus Filinthus:
That’s right, an NPC wearing the same hat and robes as me! D’oh! So what I thought was unique ended up not being as unique as I thought. At least there is Troutwort for unique!
More transmogs to come!
