Badass Hunter Mog

Last week Kamalia posted a great round-up of her Noblegarden brightly colored transmogs.  My favorite was ‘Dressed to Kill II’, and looking at it reminded me how much I love the Double Link Tunic.  I never had much luck finding one on the AH, or getting its look-alike Avenger’s Armor to drop out of RFK.  But, after Kam’s post I was inspired again, and imagine my luck, there was one for sale!  I quickly snapped it up and got to work on a mog.  I recently discovered these awesome black gloves from Ulduar, and the look grew from there.  It’s not something I expected to like so much, but I LOVE it, and since I can’t come up with another name, it’s just going to be the ‘Badass Hunter’ Mog 😀  I mean that gun, is just so, so, badass!  I’m especially excited because I’ve been trying to come up with something else for my hunter to wear for ages, and always ended up mogging back in to my red outfit.


So, here it is!  Ulduar was very good to me last night, dropping the shoulders and gloves in one run.  When I headed to Karazhan for the gun, I though there was no way it would drop.  I made my way to the opera, the curtain drew and it was actually the Big Bad Wolf.  Not getting my hopes up, I ran around as a little gnome while my pet killed him, then… omg… he dropped the gun!  I guess sometimes a mog is meant to be!  The boots in this shot are ‘temporary’ until the ones I want drop, or I give up, lol, but I’ve included the other boots in the pic below.


Shoulders – Mantle of Fiery Vengeance

Chest – Double Link Tunic

Hands – Gloves of Taut Grip

Waist – Verek’s Leash

Legs – Savage Gladiator Leggings

Feet – Tempered Mercury Greaves

Gun – Wolfslayer Sniper Rifle

Feet (above) – Savage Gladiator Greaves



My favorite thing about this mog though, is that it looks good from the back, lol!  I came to realize that I spend most of the time looking at the back of my characters, and that’s where a lot of other mogs I tried for my hunter didn’t work out.  I really thought Drainee would stay in the red/orange mog forever, but I think this is a keeper 😉

Now, I’m off to try and install the mute annoying sounds “addon”, cause there is nothing worse than those damn gun sounds!

Oh, and here’s my pet I always use, Knucklehead. He’s a good guy, and coordinates with both my favorite mogs 😛

5.2 Troll Gear Re-releases

When the troll raids Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman were revamped as 5-man dungeons in Cataclysm, much of the of the original gear was either removed, or recolored for the updated loot tables.  Since this was before transmog, not many people had the old gear hanging around.  Blizzard seems to be keyed into how much people love to mog old sets though, and they have brought these back with the introduction of the Isle of Thunder!  All of these items drop off of mobs on the island, and except for the Corroded Hacker, they are all BOE, so check out your local auction house if you’re not able to visit the new dailies hub yet.  I really love this idea of re-introducing removed gear as random green drops.  I’m keeping my finger crossed that the old Scholomance and Scarlet Monastery gear re-appears soon.  In the mean time, check out these fly sets













 Transmog extras: Mooncloth Vest
This set actually comes with a dress whose model is already in game.
Since the pants and gloves are new, I wanted to show the off here.

For more info, check out wowhead’s write up of all the drops.  There are a ton more
weapons, a red and purple recolor of the Amani Regalia, and some pieces that were
missing from recolors of other sets.

NPC Transmog – Maiev Shadowsong


I had so much fun with my mog of Sylvanas, I thought I’d try my hand at some other NPCs!  This time I took at shot at Maiev Shadowsong.  It’s another mail mog, but I seem to know my mail pieces the best 😉  I find a lot of the cloth wearing NPCs are in sets or what not.  How to mog Jaina is all over the place, but I may post it anyways, lol.  If anyone has any specific character they’d like me to try and make a mog for, let me know in the comments!

Most of the pieces I used are from the Beaststalker set, as it seems to have been modeled after Maiev.  I wanted something more silver for the chest and legs than the set pieces, so this is what I came up with!  I even included a picture of a night elf at the bottom, since I know it’s kind of weird to be sticking Draenei in all these costumes 😀

Head – Bonelink Helmet

Shoulders – Replica Beaststalker’s Mantle

Cloak – Tracker’s Cloak

Chest – Pillager’s Chestguard

Hands – Replica Beaststalker’s Gloves

Waist – Replica Beaststalker’s Belt

Legs – Pillager’s Leggings

Feet – Replica Beaststalker’s Boots

Fist Weapon – Grip of Mannoroth



Here’s a side view of the fist weapon I picked out.  It’s not quite the same as the wardens’ circular weapon, but I felt it went nicely with the outfit.  You could also use The Perforator if you were looking for something smaller, and it comes in a few different colors.

Shoulders – Replica Beaststalker’s Mantle

Chest – Steel Breastplate

Just for fun, here’s the night elf shot I promised, ready for action! Her boots are Replica Marshal’s Chain Boots.

NPC Transmog – Sylvanas Windrunner


First, I want to thank everyone for the get-well wishes!  I’m finally feeling a little normal, and less like an undead.  Since I was feeling only sorta-alive the past week, I thought it would be a great time to post my transmog-take on the Dark Lady!  I’ve had my little belf hunter in a version of this mog forever, and I was originally going to post it around Hallow’s End, but it’s here now, lol!

I don’t usually RP, or have stories for my characters, but when I made my elf hunter after Cataclysm, I knew I wanted to level her in the new Foresaken zones.  She grew up hearing the stories of Sylvanas Windrunner, and wanted to be just like her.  When transmog came out, it was only natural she would want to dress like her too 😀

The hood and shoulders aren’t exactly the right color, but I think they go well with each other.  I chose the shoulders for the skulls on the sides, as Sylvanas’ are mostly made of skulls.

Looking Fly with Euphy(ley)


Last week’s Laid Back Raid with JD and crew was a dragon killing party.  We started the night in Obsidium Sanctum, where I got to meet up with the super duper fly Euphyley of WoW Rare Spawns!  Her transmog is so awesome, and it goes fantastically with the Tabard of the Acheiver she is wearing.  Drainee also stepped out in her new look.  Since she recently turned 90 and is running a lot of heroics, I threw together a look that went with the dungeon set.  I was going for an outfit that I could mix and match without running to the mogger everytime I got an upgrade.  So shhhh, don’t tell that not all of my pieces are actually mogged!!

The great part about Euphyley’s mog is that she used some of the Scarlet Crusade pieces that used to drop out of Scarlet Monastery.  The Scarlet Belt is a BOE, so you may still be able to find one on your AH along with the Scarlet Chestpiece, but unfortunately, the bosses that dropped the Hands and Legs were replaced in the Mists’ revamp of the SM dungeons.


Shoulders – Harlan’s Shoulders

Chest – Ornate Breastplate

Gloves – Pillager’s Gloves

Waist – Bindburner Belt

Legs – Legguards of the Crimson Magus

Feet – Ornate Greaves


Head – Stylin’ Crimson Hat

Shoulders – Stormcaller’s Pauldrons

Chest – Stormcaller’s Hauberk

Hands – Gauntlets of Divinity

Waist – Scarlet Belt

Legs – Scarlet Leggings

Feet – Mercurial Greaves

I asked Euphyley about how to say her name, just so I could be sure it rhymed with ‘Fly’. I’ve always said it like Yoo-fee-lee, but just my rhyming luck, she pronounces it You-Fie-Lee! So glad that worked out 😛

Here’s another shot of Eupyley and Drainee, from our Ulduar LBR a few weeks ago!  Make sure and check out her blog for all the info you could ever want on rare spawn stuff 🙂

Bloodmail Set – Hunter Mog

In the weeks leading up to patch 5.0.4, I had grand intentions of running Scholomance for some of the gear that was possibly being removed with the updates to it, and Scarlet Monestary.  Two pieces I was really interested in were the Bloodmail legs and boots.  It started well, I nabbed the boots on my second run.  By my fourth run, however, I started to loose interest.  I have to admit I was a little burned out on the place after farming for Alanna’s Embrace, and generally from years of running through it.

Unfortunately, the dungeon updates did remove all of the old gear from the loot tables.  Drainee is slightly bummed she will never have the perfect pair of black pants.  It would be awesome if Blizzard introduces more cosmetic gear in the future, as with the old tier pieces you can buy from the Darkmoon Faire.  I’ve decided to post my Bloodmail transmog that was not to be, hopefully some lucky soul with the pants can take inspiration from it 🙂

Shoulders – Furious Gladiator’s Chain Spaulders

Chest – Auchenai Tracker’s Hauberk

Gloves – Furious Gladiator’s Chain Gauntlets

Belt – Corded Viper Belt

My First Mogover!

(Thanks to Dizzy for the post title)

This weekend I got to run some Wrath raids with some friends I used to raid with Horde-side, in Wrath oddly enough.  I hadn’t hung out with them in awhile, and it was a lot of fun.  Hooray for Real ID! Lol.  When I first started raiding with them, Unroku was the other Unholy Death Knight.  I kicked his butt in dps every raid.  When Blizzard killed off separate 10/25 lock-outs, and our raids dwindled down to 10, he switched to his shaman.  He eventually went Alliance, on a different server than mine, and changed to the best thing a shaman can be, a female Draenei of course!

Ready to punch Yogg in the.. face?  I think it’s a face.

We talked a little about transmog, and my adventures with the WoW Factor shows.  He seemed pretty interested in being a fly Draenei, but he’s a guy, so I think he needs a little push.  I’ve made up some mogs for him to maybe get him started.

This first mog is based off of some pieces from his pvp set.  I always think of him as more of a PVP’er, as him and crazy Naga were always doing arenas.  I also really like these shaman shoulders, they’re super cool.


Shoulder – Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Mail Spaulders

Chest – Hero’s Breastplate

Belt – Hero’s Belt

Gloves – Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Linked Gauntlets

Legs – Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Mail Leggings

Feet – Bloodmail Boots

Mace –  Glorious Scepter

Shield – Zom’s Crackling Bulwark


This next mog is for his PVE set.  His nickname (irl) is Goldy, so I came up with this look based on that.


Shoulder – Khan’s Mantle

Chest – Masterwork Breastplate

Belt – Girdle of the Gambit

Gloves – Masterwork Gauntlets

Legs – Valorous Earthshatter Legguards

Mace – Hammer of the Pentinent

Shield – Ruthless Gladiator’s Redoubt


Here’s another variation of the gold outfit, but with the ‘Elite’ PVP Shoulders. I hope they stick around when MOP comes out, and don’t require a crazy arena rating to acquire.


Shoulders – Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Mail Spaulders

Chest – Radiant Breastplate

Gloves – Engraved Gauntlets

Belt – Radiant Belt

Legs – Valorous Earthshatter Legguards


Well, I hope he likes them.  Maybe he’ll get a little inspiration, or the transmog bug.  If not, he’s still kinda fly to me 😉

Red and Purple Hunter Mog

This transmog was inspired by a worgen hunter I saw standing around Stormwind.  You really couldn’t miss him, as this look is pretty bright.  It is definitely a stand out!

The Skettis Kaliri from Terokkar
Forest is a nice pet for this look.
