Two weeks of running Naxxramas-25 with my hubby netted me all the tokens for the Valorous Scourgebourne Battlegear so I figured why not try a new mog? Besides, I’d been sporting my “wannabe-rogue” look since 5.3 and figured it was time for a change.
Belt: Belt of the Singing Blade
Boots: Bladed Steelboots
Weapon: Tempest of Chaos
Possibly the best-looking Death Knight set from Wrath, in my humble opinion.
When you have pre-patch 5.4 boredom like I do, you feel compelled to work on another transmog set. This time I chose black and red based on the Dark Iron Plate set.
Helm: Replica Shado-Pan Helmet
Shoulders: Dark Iron Shoulders
Cloak: Blood Knight War Cloak
Chest: Inferno Tempered Chestguard
Hands: Inferno Tempered Gauntlets
Waist: Chain of Unleashed Rage
Legs: Inferno Tempered Leggings
Boots: Inferno Tempered Boots
Weapon: Fel Iron Greatsword
The sword mog is temporary until (and if) I get The Untamed Blade.
I had the urge to do another complete transmog today out of sheer boredom. This time, I opted for muted shades of yellow and blue. Here’s my take on the Wrynn’s Battlegear using a mishmash of pieces from different sources:
Helm: Peacebreaker’s Armored Helm
Shoulders: Pauldrons of the Silver Defender
Cloak: Tapestry of the Frozen Throne
Chest: Thassarian’s Battleplate of Conquest
Hands: Thassarian’s Gauntlets of Conquest
Waist: Girdle of the Nether Champion
Legs: Thassarian’s Legplates of Conquest
Boots: Sabatons of the Lingering Vortex
Weapon: Quel’Delar, Might of the Faithful
I had originally planned on using Ramaladni’s Blade of Culling for the weapon mog but the old-time, sentimental favorite from the Battered Hilt quest line was just begging to make an appearance once more out of my Void Storage. And how could I say no to something from a time when I was a wide-eyed, eager and adventurous Blood Elf…before dailies sucked the life out of me.
Yours truly has found a new hobby, albeit quite late into the game: slowly but surely building old school pieces for transmog. For my latest look, I decided that I wanted a complete tier set that: a) had less-girly colors, and b) I could easily acquire without the aid of a group run. The first set that came to mind was the Heroes’ Scourgeborne Battlegear set.
I solo’d Naxxramas for a few weeks for the helm, chest, leg and shoulder tokens and exchanged my Justice Points in Dalaran for the tier gloves. Determined to stick to the purplish-navy blue and copper motif, I scoured Wowhead for the best cloak, boots and weapon to match. I went to three different locations to make my purchase: Shattrath for the cloak, Uldum for the boots and Stormwind for the two-handed PvP sword.
And voila, here’s my newest transmog ensemble from the Tier 7 set:
Cloak: Dory’s Embrace
Boots: Drystone Greaves
Weapon: Wrathful Gladiator’s Grreatsword
Oh, I almost forgot: for the belt, I purchased Belt of the Lonely Noble at the Auction House. It was the best I could find.
I like this one waaaaaay better than my first mog! 🙂
It took me a while to jump on the fancy transmogrification bandwagon. When Blizzard introduced ‘mogging’ in WoW, I couldn’t quite bring myself to go through the hassle of hunting down specific pieces of gear in separate instances for the sake of color-coordinating. I kept things simple (and boring) by going basic black — I transmogged my gear into the old Death Knight pieces I wore when I left Acherus at level 58 to be pardoned by Thrall in Orgrimmar (ah, the good old days of being Horde!).
But over time, I started developing ‘mog envy’. I’d see all these other plate wearers with the most awesome, put-together gear in the most spectacular colors, like the ones below, and wished I could look pretty like them.
The last one with the Avenger’s Battlegear set is my personal favorite! Love the orange-pink combo. Reminds me of the Matthew Williamson and Narciso Rodriguez Spring/Summer 2013 collection:
So after obtaining Despair – the first pretty and girly weapon I own so far – I went on a mission to to get some purple-magenta pieces to go with the sword The first few items I got from old BC dungeons were kinda iffy when combined, so I went for the next best thing which was the Replica Soulforge set sold by the Darkmoon Faire NPC, Baruma.
And voila, here’s my first attempt at ‘fashionable’ mogging:
Now I know there are better transmogs out there, but I’m pretty new at building a collection and still figuring things out. I don’t think it’s such a bad first attempt at all, even if it looks like something straight out of the Purple Dress Run circa 2009.

Work it, ladies! 😀
I transmogged my Gurthalak, Voice of the Deeps sword into my sentimental favorite, Quel’Delar, Might of the Faithful.
Quel’Delar reminds me of the good old days of Wrath when Dalaran was the place to be, Icecrown Citadel was the mother of raids, Halls of Reflection was the one heroic where tanks dropped out before you could say, “I f*cking hate this place!”, and the fishing daily in Wintergrasp was the one daily that got me killed more times than my attempts on the Lich King. And of course, when people farmed for the Battered Hilt like crazy while I was lucky enough to be given one by someone who was in love with me (it went to my hunter) and I got another Battered Hilt from a very lucky roll (for my Death Knight).
It’s been a year since Cataclysm was launched and while I have my fair share of fond memories of the early days of this expansion,Wrath will always hold a special place in my heart.
2012 is just around the corner. Here’s hoping it won’t be the end of the world, so we can enjoy Mists of Pandaria.
