When patch 4.3 hit, it also meant that transmogrification entered the game. Admittedly I’ve not been doing lots of research and farmed lots of gear for my characters – in part because I’m simply too lazy to do so. However, I still think it’s a fun feature, and I intend to keep updating my characters as I find new things.

This is the state of my characters so far.


My Warlock had all of her old tier pieces, so I simply went with my favourite one; the Tier 5 – Corruptor’s set. I wanted a nice scythe to go with it, but sadly I don’t have the one from the Midsummer boss, so I’m currently running around with from the low level Warlock quest – Staff of Justified Sins.



Since I’ve played my Priest sporadically ever since I rolled her in Vanilla she has a little bit of everything, but not a full set of anything. So I put together what I could, including the Priest shoulders I like most.

Head: Vengeful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Hood
Shoulder: Mantle of Absolution
Chest: Merciless Gladiator’s Mooncloth Robe
Hands: Brutal Gladiator’s Mooncloth Gloves
Weapon: Engraved Gargoyle Femur

Death Knight

I’m having a love affair with my dps Death Knight at the moment, but because she’s not an overly old character she doesn’t have a whole lot of gear lying around. So, she’s actually simply wearing the DK set that you get as you complete their starting zone. Although I don’t like the style of boots they used then, so she has the look of the Woe Breeder’s Boots instead.

She only has one sword so far, I’m hoping for a second one soon. Then she will have two looking like this instead of just one. (Red Sword of Courage)



Again, this character isn’t very old and doesn’t have a lot of stuff lying around. I actually really enjoy the T12 for Paladins, so for her Holy set that’s what she has. For her retribution set I just picked some pieces for fun. I swear she is the Blood Elf with the worst fashion sense in Orgimmar. I’m still looking for some better matching pieces, for now she’s wearing the drops from the new Heroics for gloves and boots.

Retribution Set
Shoulder: Heaving Plates of Protection
Chest: Imbued Plate Armor
Legs: Boulderfist Legplates


Transmogrifun? — 7 Comments

  1. Your warlock looks deliciously evil. The scythe is one weapon power torrent actually looks good with, possibly because the blade is quite plain. It’s got a great name too.

    I’ve sort of given up on Transmogrification. Although I’ve been turning all my Priest’s season 11 stuff back into season 10 šŸ˜€

    • I do love the scythe for my Warlock, it brings back memories of getting my first one all those years ago. Similar to how I fondly remember the (very long and annoying) quest to get the Dreadsteed at level 60. While I can understand that people may not be into getting those things the “hard” way anymore (thinking of the Warlock/Paladin mounts), it’s a shame really – because while they were kind of difficult back in the day and required something of you – they also added a lot of flavour to your class.

      I definitely don’t put as much time into transmogrification as other people do. But I like a decently matching set, so any piece my Paladin gets I quickly transmogrify into her T12 so she won’t look mismatched (except when she plays retribution, then she looks like she doesn’t know what she’s doing – which nicely reflects me and playing retri!).

      If I had more time maybe I’d go out and farm some of the gear I don’t have but like, some of the older tier sets etc. But I’m much too lazy. So they’ve had to make do with what they had in their banks. Every now and then I have a quick look on the AH though, just in case there’s something nice looking on there. Every now and then I make a nice discovery šŸ™‚

  2. My priest has the yellow dress from AQ, along with black mageweave leggings. I haven’t found a helm that works yet, but the current priest tier shoulders work really well with the robes, colour-wise.

    • Oh, I can imagine that’d look good together. Admittedly a lot of my characters end up running with their head piece not showing, because I seldom like how they look these days. So I can see why you may not have found a helm that works yet.
