Okay, so I dropped the ball on this one. The gloves are, unfortunately, a drop from Trial of the Crusader (curse you, faction-specific raid drops), which means they are faction-locked to the Horde. That said, I haven’t flagged this with a “Horde Only” sticker because those gloves, though admittedly pretty cool, aren’t going to make or break the set.

If you’re Alliance and can’t find alternative gloves, let me know and I’ll scrape together some ideas for you.

On the other side of the coin, if it looks like  Quest Reward Breastplate of the Undercover Thorium Brother is an Alliance-only quest reward, never fear. There’s a Horde quest that offers the same model reward.

Because #DeathKnightWeek Runs on DWT Time

Part of Lae’s Alt Appreciation series. 

And the Devil Wears Transmog runs on Blizzard’s Tuesday maintenance schedule so, uh, I’m not late. For another five hours.

Skip to the transmogs

Prior the announcement of #DeathKnightWeek, I didn’t have a Death Knight. Well, that’s not true. I had lots of Death Knights, deleted, abandoned or dead on other servers. This is what happens when you’re the sort of person who regularly bumps up against the 50 character account limit.

But I wanted a Death Knight I’d actually play, so I sauntered over to one of my less populated servers and rolled Mortuary.

For all my love of transmog, I like the DK starting zone gear enough I’ll probably leave her like this ’til 90.

Likes: piña coladas, long walks on the beach, and posing dramatically in front of large, glowing objects.

mortuary_mount

A touching moment between mount and rider in the shadow of a Havenshire outhouse.

He’s kind of cute. You know, for a twelve-foot tall force of pure evil.

But it wouldn’t be a Devil Wears Transmog post without some ill-conceived fashion suggestions, so away we go!


You’ll notice this round looks a little different. This time, I’ve turned to MogIt and, frankly, the results are great enough that I think I’ll be using MogIt exclusively from now on.

Okay, so an argument could be made that those boots don’t really work, but I don’t care. They’re gorgeous and look heavy enough to smash a man’s face in, both important qualities for any fashionable Death Knight. That said, none of these pieces are locked to a particular class or faction, so have fun!

Okay, so maybe this transmog isn’t breaking any new ground, but I think the blue in the belt with the blue in her eyes makes this a solid alternative to a Death Knight’s usual parade of skulls and spikes. Again, there’s nothing here that’s locked to a particular class, but those axes — in that color, anyway — are only available for Alliance players.

Next up, #DruidWeek! Bring on the… uh, worgen.

I swear I’m a Hordie. I swear.

I generally try to limit the number of pieces I use from each expansion, but for this outfit I bent a few rules. Anything to make Vendor - Gold Phantom Armor work, given that the rest of its in-game set is actually mail.

And yeah, this was meant to be available to all plate-wearing classes, but Mists of Pandaria loot rules mean warriors and death knights won’t be able to win Mists of Pandaria Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Spaulders of the Emperor’s Rage. Unless you’ve got a secret healing off-spec, sorry guys. This one’s for Paladins only.

It’s red…?

I’m going to go with red.

Here’s the full set on Wowhead

I’ve been dreaming about a set incorporating World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Symbolic Legplates since transmog was first introduced. Ultimately, I decided to highlight my favourite colour of the moment: teal.

Of course, my clothes horse of a paladin is unlikely to ever wear it, because that shield is a rare drop from heroic Primordius.

Also, she doesn’t tank.

Or heal.

Um.
