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.
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.
Shoulders: Spaulders of Manifold Eyes
Chest: Valorous Chestguard
Hands: Gauntlets of the Righteous Champion
Waist: Cloudbreaker Greatbelt
Legs: Thorium Leggings
Feet: Treads of the Blind Eye
Main-Hand: Zoid’s Firelit Greatsword
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!
Shoulders: Glorious Shoulder Pads
Chest: Exalted Harness
Hands: Gloves of the Stela
Waist: Girdle of Delirious Visions
Legs: Legplates of Sagacious Shadows
Feet: Greaves of the Stonewarder
Main-Hand: Tyrannical Gladiator’s Hacker (Alliance Only)
Off-Hand: Tyrannical Gladiator’s Hacker (Alliance Only)
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.
