Okay, I love this mail transmog, but those shoulders are going to be a pain in the neck. Cataclysm Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Wyrmstalker’s Spaulders is a Cataclysm raid drop — easy, right? Nope, they’re a Cataclysm raid finder drop. That means if you’re already 90, you’re screwed — that is, until Warlords of Draenor makes old LFR content available to transmog hunters.

If you can’t wait, other colours of the same model are available (purple or red), but a straight substitution isn’t going work with this design. The chest, legs, helm, and gloves could stay, no problem, but you’d want to tweak the gloves, belt, and weapon to accommodate the red or purple — whatever your poison.

If you don’t feel like thinking too hard and you like the look, let me know and I’ll do the heavy lifting for you.

Here’s the full set on Wowhead.

Way back when, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, Rachel made a request:

Would love some goblin hunter transmogs! My blood elf DK alt has as many transmog outfits as I have time to farm but I can’t find more than a couple for my goblin main.

I answered the first half of that request with my Demon Stalker (Hunter) set, but spoke of a second set to come — something sexy and impractical, yet somehow still kind of boring. Ladies and gentlemen, this is that set.

Most of the time, I work from a pretty wide selection of sources, everything from the easiest Vanilla quest to end-game Mists of Pandaria progression raiding. This time, I’m taking it easy on you. Your greatest enemy here is server size; there are more than 200 World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Mail Combat Leggings on Auction Houses across Azeroth, so if it’s available, consider yourself blessed. If it’s not, and you’re looking at the unfortunate prospect of grinding it yourself, you have a long, hard slog ahead of you.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen the Cataclysm Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Imperfect Specimens 27 and 28 animation, check it out on Wowhead. It’s very cool.

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 hope you guys have better luck with RNG than I do.

And, uh, suck less at raiding.
