When I’m looking for transmogging gear lately, I keep finding myself going to Outland for it.  Vanilla gear was fine, in a fantasy-grab-bag kind of way; in Northrend everything was dark and spiky, even the cloth; in Cataclysm the gear looks all right, but unless you’re wearing raid tier gear it’s just drab.  Outland is where it gets crazy– bright colors and interesting shapes.  And if you’re looking for a headpiece that won’t hide your luxurious locks, it’s pretty much Outland for you.

I guess that makes me a pretty sparkle princess.  Whee!


  1. I’ve transmogged my warrior tank into 40s-level crafted gear. Which is how I say “I USED TO BE IN THE SCA AND I KNOW WHAT REAL ARMOR SHOULD LOOK LIKE.”

    • That’s true– it’s hard to find armor that looks like armor or weapons that look like weapons.

  2. heh, I’m in largely outland gear, too. I picked up Mogit which helped a lot as I was finishing off Loremaster, and my bank is *stuffed* with gear I picked up along the way. I agree with the Wrath and Cata gear being much of a muchness. Not a lot that really looks like anything – which, I guess, makes getting a cohesive look as you’re questing through easy enough, but makes it hard to come up with anything that doesn’t look like WoW does Attack of the Clones. No, really, clones. O.o

    I think the thing I was happiest about with transmog was being able to mog OUT of the punch bowl shoulders and wrestling championship belts.

    • Mogit is great. I got introduced to it just recently and it has made my transmogging much easier.

  3. I have one character with a set of the ‘First gear from outland quests’. It’s amazing how many colors can be placed in one outfit. I remember doing outland for the first time, and the sense of wonder at how mismatched a set of gear can be. BC really showed that the artists could do a lot with the gear models… and honestly the lore was some of my favorite too. Of course, you could add a nice new item from MoP… it’s likely to have a fair bit of color if they stick with the oriental theme.

    • Yeah, there’s a reason why my priest was for a long time known as “The Fashion Disaster.” 🙂

  4. I still tease my husband about the “purple pimp pants” that his mage wore for a long, long time. I didn’t play WoW at the time so I couldn’t comprehend why he would make his character wear those things!

    Let’s see, my druids are wearing bits of the BC dungeon T2 recolor set (mixed with the T8 helm and shoulders from T11), my priest is wearing T6, one of my mages is wearing T5 and the other is farming T4. My shamans are wearing T8 and T10 though, they break the BC streak!
