Mogging with Loshan, Terror Incarnate


A long time ago, in a raid tier far, far away… Well, it wasn’t that long ago, but with as fast as the patches are coming in Pandaria, it sure feels that way!  Back when I was still playing my Horde mage, I received this amazing sword in LFR and knew I needed to mog around it.  In honor of Alt Apprecation Mage Week, I thought I’d finally post about this mog and the one I really wanted to put together.  I never did get that ideal mog made, as it required 25 man Ulduar and we just couldn’t duo Kologarn, but the picture above is how Liddey has been sitting all these months, and it’s not bad if I do say so myself 😉


Shoulders: Very Fashionable Shoulders

Chest: Arachnidian Robes

Waist: Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Cord of Accuracy

Feet: Arachnidian Footpads

Gloves: Cold Sweat Grips

Main hand: Loshan, Terror Incarnate

Off hand: Inscribed Jade Fan


This is another version of the mog above using the Spellbinder Robe.
This is the mog I really wanted, but I wasn’t able to get the robes on her.  Maybe one day I’ll have to get it on Draynee 😀
Shoulders – Illidari Shoulderpads
A horde-only version with Pauldrons of Catastrophic Emanation, Don Tayo’s Inferno Mittens and Cord of Reconstruction.  You can also see the Arachnidian Footpads here that are listed above.  Only the shoulders are restricted to Horde.

Blizzard Store Transmog Helms – Cloth Mogs

Unless perhaps you’ve been under a rock, on vacation, or not playing WoW, you’ve surely heard the hullabaloo over the new items at the Blizzard Store.  Formerly a place to buy neato pets and mounts, they’ve now added 3 Cosmetic Armor Pieces you can spend your real-life gold on, and mog to your hearts’ content.  I have mixed feelings about these helms, they’re not really my style, and I think the price point is a little high.  I know everyone’s got quite an opinion on these things, and I won’t say either way if I support them being sold for money or not.  What I do support 100%, however, is the people who buy these and want to wear them.

There’s a rumor going around Twitter that some poor chap got kicked from LFR, and the reason in people’s boxes was that he was wearing one of these store helms.  To make it worse, the ‘rumor’ (I can’t speak to it’s truth as I wasn’t there) was started by some pretty high-profile podcasters who were making fun of this person.  This blog is not usually a place where I voice strong opinions, but without a doubt, my opinion of this situation is that it is asinine and unacceptable.

I’ve got a lot more to say about this, but I will digress and get to the pretty pictures.  In short, transmog is as much a form of self-expression as what class you play, and NO-ONE (not even you, Mr. Worgen DK in purple judgement) deserves to be publicly made fun of for what they choose to mog into.  So rock on, kid who got kicked from LFR, and comfort yourself in the thought that the gear you wanted wasn’t going to drop from that run anyways, and you were better off with another group 🙂

So ANYWAYS, here’s some cloth mogs I put together for the 3 helms.  If I’m feeling funky-fresh, I might do some of the other armors too!


This first helm you may have seen with the blue skull face effect.  I had no idea that was just an animation until I saw Mogoholic’s post about the helm.  It’s a pretty neat looking crown in still form!

Head – Crown of Eternal Winter

Shoulders – Valorous Shoulderpads of Sanctification (Priest)

Chest – Mooncloth Robe

Hands – San’layn Ritualist Gloves

Waist – Mindfire Waistband

This helm kinda scares me.  Those red eyes in the black, it’s like what you’d see if you said ‘Bloody Draenei’ in front of a mirror in dark 12 times.  BOO! /shudders

This helm is serious about its horns.  Please be careful not to put an eye out if you’re mogging this one.  Unless, that’s your intention… and the target is an orc… named Garrosh…

Head – Jewel of the Firelord

Shoulders – Firehawk Mantle (Mage)

Chest – Robe of the Waking Nightmare

Tabard of the Achiever

Hands – Sanctified Bloodmage Gloves

Waist – Embereye Belt

Umlauts over at Mog’s Addiction did a pretty awesome plate mog for this one, so check that out too!


P.S. You can scope out the helms for yourself on the Blizzard Store.

WTB a Draenei Warlock

According to WoW Realm Pop, Warlocks are the least played class, right behind Shamans, at 7.6% if players on US Realms.  In a WoW Insider article posted back in April, they revealed that GuildOx had determined that Warlocks are the least played class in heroic raiding. Cynwise even has a whole series of posts dedicated to the Decline and Fall of Warlocks in Cataclysm.   According to my own opinion, the real reason for the warlock’s low level of desirability is the fact that Draenei cannot be warlocks.  As an example, lets look at the Shaman.  Currently 7.1% of US Alliance players are Shamans (via Realm Pop), as compared to the 0% of Alliance players that were Shaman before the class was opened to Draenei.

Ok, I know that is the worst example ever, since no Alliance race could be Shamans before Draenei. Hey, a gal can exaggerate every once in a while right?

Eredar Twins in Sunwell Plateau

Now, I am well aware that Draenei lore does not really support them being Warlocks.  The name Draenei means “exiled ones” in the Eredun language.  The Draenei were originally Eredar, who, under Velen, fled the corruption on their home world brought about by the fallen titan Sargeras.  The remaining eredar, led by Kil’jaeden and Archimonde were eventually turned into a race of warlocks and sided with the Burning Legion (wowiki).  The Draenei settled on the planet they named Draenor and led a relatively peaceful life with the native orcs, until they too were corrupted by Kil’jaeden himself, who had been hunting the Draenei since they peaced-out of the whole ‘siding with the Burning Legion’ deal.

Archimonde in Mount Hyjal Summit

So, Draenei have not had a nice time with warlocks, I get it, but that doesn’t mean I can’t want to play one!  I have tried to play warlocks of other races, I had a 71 gnome warlock who was deleted, along with a level 12 goblin who was also deleted.  Currently my human lock is 38, and my blood elf lock is 36.  I just can’t get into it.  I am convinced if I had a Draenei lock, she’d be the fasted alt to 85 yet.  It would be the best, I’d probably make her my main.  I’d have a felhunter named Phuumon, and an imp named Kazpit.  Maybe she wouldn’t zoom to 85, I’d turn of my xp and farm dungeon gear so I could turn my xp back on and level up through bg’s.  That probably sounds even more ridiculous than the subject of this post, but that is exactly how I leveled my hunter, lol.

I’d also get wear the most amazing warlock gear, like this:


Chest & Shoulders – Warlock Tier 6Robe of the Malefic and Mantle of the Malefic

Waist – Anetheron’s Noose

Hands – Widow’s Clutches

Staff – Staff of Sinister Claws

Or this! It isn’t a warlock-only set, but it would make a lot more sense than on a Mage:

Head – Horns of Justified Sins or Felheart Horns

Shoulders – Hatefury Mantle

Chest – Elder’s Robe

Waist – Councillor’s Sash

Hands – Gloves of Pentinence

Staff – Staff of Beasts

And, finally:

Super Creepy Warlock Shoulders – Valorous Plagueheart Shoulderpads

Chest – Watcher’s Tunic

Waist – Mage-Fury Girdle

Hands – Hands of Darkness

Legs – Elegant Leggings

Feet – Saltarello Shoes

Staff – Zhar’doom, Greatstaff of the Devourer


So, if you’ve stuck with me this long, you’re probably wondering how I think they should incorporate Draenei warlocks in lore.  Well if you are (or aren’t) here it is.  During a quest in the Swamp of Sorrows, Velen states, “Even now, the true battle between the forces of Light and Darkness approaches. We will all be called to join, and in the face of this conflict, all mortal suffering will be meaningless”.  The Warcraft story will eventually come back around to the Burning Legion.  They’re out there still, and they need to be stopped.  We’ve all heard that the best way to fight your enemy is to use their own strength against them.  If the Draenei are to be at the forefront of this battle, they are going to need understand warlocks inside and out.  To acheive this understanding, a brave group of Draenei will need to study the fel arts and learn how to use it. Only then, will they be able to harness this power against the evil that has hunted them for so long.  I will be that Draenei, and I’ll look good doing it!
