My level 60-something priest, forgoing heirlooms to wear the game’s most beautiful gear 😉
When transmog was first announced, way back in Sept. 2011, I immediately started planning what I wanted my characters to wear. I didn’t know much about mixing and matching, and mostly had sets planned for my mogs. Purple Judgement for my pally, Marshcreeper mail for the hunter, and this gorgeous set for my mage:
Field Marshal’s Regalia
Imaging my disappointment on that bright Tuesday morning transmog was released, and I was greated by this:
Pretty much crushing. I picked up the Brutal Gladiator’s Regalia, mogged her into that, and resigned myself to being bummed about it. Turns out the level 60 pvp gear you can buy in Stormwind can’t be used for trasnmog. They actually have replica gear available in Area 52, but only if you attained those PvP titles back in classic WoW. Well gee, if I had only known the future, I would have started playing 4 years earlier than I did! >.> On the one hand, I understand those titles were quite difficult to attain, and this gear is sort of the last status symbol left. I’ve only seen about 5 or 6 people even mogged into any of the Replica PvP gear. On the other hand, though, I want my purple spiky shiny shoulders!!! I’ve heard that these titles can be attained through Rated Battlegrounds these days. There isn’t a whole lot of information I’ve been able to find, cause who really is going to devote their life to RBG’s just for transmog? (Uh, LF RBG group that just needs one more person to queue and doesn’t care that I’m not pro, I’ll try not to die too much?)
I’ve been leveling my priest up lately, and the other day I was messing around in MogIt when I realized this may be my one chance to wear beautiful Field Marshal’s gear! Luckily I had done some bg’s earlier in my leveling and had enough honor to buy the pieces. 20% xp bonus be damned, I’d much rather look good 😀 I also realized I may actually like the priest set better than the mage set, and that I’d finally recovered from my initial disapointment only to have it come creeping back in the form of white spiky shiny shoulders. So, while I can’t actually mog this stuff for the time being, I do want to share my ultimate dream mog:

Well, that’s my dream mog, how about you? Do you have a dream mog set you may or may not ever get to use, be it rng nightmares or just too damn hard to get?
