ROY G. BIV Transmog: Yellow

Previously on “ROY G. BIV Transmog,” our intrepid transmog team had a difference of fashion sense and a dramatic reveal of truth.


Ignitine: Hi.  😀

Prinnie: Y’know, Ignitine, if I didn’t know any better, I’d say you were trolling me.  First you go tentacles, then when I’m expecting tentacles, you go normal.  Well, “normal.”  For you.

Ignitine: I’m a warlock.  😀

Prinnie: Point taken.  Have at it.

"Spelltwister's Desire" Set

“Spelltwister’s Desire” Set

The “Spelltwister’s Desire” Set

Class: Warlock

H: Horns of the Left Hand Path | S: Felheart Shoulder Pads | Cl: Cloak of the Hardened Tortoise
Ch: Spelltwister’s Grand Robe | Wa: Sash of Mortal Desire | L: Not shown
G: Councillor’s Gloves | Wr: Not shown | B: Sandals of Ritual

Dagger: Regail’s Crackling Dagger (LFR)
Offhand: Tornado-Summoning Censer (LFR)

Thoughts: If, as a clothie, you want to avoid the obviously YELLOOOOOOW choices (Robes of the Battleguard, anyone?), then it gets a bit challenging.  Ignitine assures me this is not her “green” submission, because if she wanted to wear green, she would be wearing green, and she knows green because she is green, dammit.  No, her green submission is greener, therefore, this is the yellow one.

As a side note, all these dang sources (Icy Veins, Mogit …) keep telling me that warlocks can get the Pandaland offhand lanterns, like the Safari Lantern, but they’re wrong.  The Safari Lantern has spirit on it, which means that a purely DPS class like warlock can’t get it as a quest reward.  This makes me sad.

This is actually my favorite outfit of the year so far.

“Fist of Exodar” Set

"Fist of Exodar" Set

“Fist of Exodar” Set

Class: Shaman, Hunter (requires Alliance)

H: Not shown | S: Pauldrons of the Thousand Needles | Cl: Mantle of Exodar
Ch: Tunic of the Dragon Slayer | Wa: Belt of Occult Horrors | L: Heavy Chain Leggings
G:
Gut Opener Gloves | Wr: Not shown | B: Rough Bronze Boots

1h Mace: Fist of Argus
Shield: Chromie’s Mirror

Status: Finished

Thoughts:  I can’t handle being ugly while leveling.  I can’t handle being ugly while boosting to 90, or while scrabbling for decent gear, or while … well, in general.

Alas, mogging while using heirlooms is difficult for classes that change armor types at 40.  You can’t mog the heirlooms to a different armor type, of course, which means that you’re stuck until 40 in the first place and until you manage to acquire crap in the second.  I’m not gonna wait forever, though, so this is a “soon as possible” type outfit which only requires around level 50/55 to complete.

The important bits are only available to Alliance.  Not that any self-respecting orc or Forsaken would wear the Mantle of Exodar anyway.  They do the disco there, you know.

ROY G. BIV Transmog: Orange

Previously on “ROY G. BIV Transmog,” our intrepid transmog team had a difference of fashion sense.


Prinnie: Next up in the transmog rainbow is the color orange!  After last month, I should probably pick another representa –

Ignitine: (interrupting) You’d better let me represent, dammit!

Prinnie: I dunno, you kinda effed up the last one.  I mean, tentacle monster?  If I let you do this, you’ll just make another tentacle monster.

Ignitine: You’ll see.  If you don’t let me, I’ll burn everything in Void Storage!!  I swear I will!

Prinnie: Yeah, like threatening me is going to get you into the contest.  Let’s be honest here – your chances are slim.

Ignitine: Honest?  Okay fine, I promise never to put tin foil in the microwave again.

SCIENCE PROVEN (Note: not Prinnie's microwave, which is black and hides the smoke better.)

(Note: not Prinnie’s microwave, which is black and hides the smoke stains better.)

Prinnie: THAT WAS YOU!?

Ignitine: It was For Science.

Prinnie: I just … I just don’t even!  ALL THE SMOKE AND DRAMA.

Ignitine: She’s distracted!  THE CONTEST ENTRY IS MINE.

"Balespider's Manipulation" Set

“Balespider’s Manipulation” Set

Ignitine: You thought I was gonna do tentacles again, didn’t you!?  That’s right!  You thought you knew me, but you were wrong.

The “Balespider’s Manipulation” Set

Class: Warlock

H: Balespider’s Hood (normal) | S: Balespider’s Mantle (normal) | Cl: Gilded Thorium Cloak
Ch: Silk Robe of Eminent Domain | Wa: Belt of False Dignity | L: Not shown
G: Incanter’s Gloves | Wr: Not shown | B: Boots of Ethereal Manipulation

Dagger: Knife of Incision
Offhand: Juggernaut’s Power Core (LFR)

Thoughts: Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiireeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee Yeah, that’s about how deep my thoughts are at this exact moment.

ROY G. BIV Transmog: Red

Prinnie: While the “Mog the World in 80 Days” contest sounded like a cool idea, I’m just way too lazy to keep up with something that complex for so long.  Then I learned there was a Roy G. Biv type contest!  What’s this?  A contest of just seven six colors?  Even I can handle that!  The biggest challenge becomes choosing who to represent this blog!

Ignitine: Oooooh!  MEMEMEMEME!  Pick me!  Pick me!!  I CAN DO THIS.  I just hit 90, and you KNOW warlocks get all the neatest stuff!

Prinnie: That’s true, they do got a lot of cool stuff.  Show us what ya got.

Ignitine: YESSSS.

Warlocks Have The Neatest Stuff ... from a certain perspective

Ignitine: THIS VALENTINE’S DAY, REMEMBER TO HUG YOUR TENTACLE MONSTER!

Prinnie: …………….  Much warlock.  Such shock.  Who let you out of the basement again?

Ignitine: I’m a shoo-in for victory, I assure you.

The “Remember to Hug Your Tentacle Monster” Set

Class: Warlock (Red requires Horde)

H: Tyrannical Gladiator’s Felweave Cowl | S: Tyrannical Gladiator’s Felweave Amice | Cl: Auchenai Death Shroud
Ch: Furious Gladiator’s Felweave Raiment | Wa: Furious Gladiator’s Cord of Dominance | L: Not shown
G: Tyrannical Gladiator’s Felweave Handguards | Wr: Not shown | B: Veteran’s Mooncloth Slippers

Dagger: Fanged Tentacle
Offhand: Thermotastic Egg Timer

Thoughts: Normally I prefer to actually get the items in game and literally mog them – it makes me feel accomplished gives me something to do.  But given the approaching deadline, I found I had to use Mogit and “pretend,” if you will.  There was just no way I was going to be able to get it together, especially since I wanted to post this before Valentine’s Day.  While Ignitine is 90 now, this outfit requires a stupid amount of Honor, which is best considered a “long term” kinda goal where I’m concerned.  Goa gallantly offered to carry Ignitine to high item level PvP gear tentacle-tastic transmog glory, but I wimped out.

“Eighty Reflections” Set

"Eighty Reflections" Set

“Eighty Reflections” Set

Class: Druid

H: Self-Reflecting Mask (LFR) | S: Malleable Steelweave Mantle | Cl: Dervish Cape
Ch: Robes of Eighty Lights | Wa: Thatch Eave Vines | L: Not shown
G:
Ahn’kahar Handwraps | Wr: Not shown | B: Not shown trollolol

Staff: Staff of Athen’a

Status: Finished

Thoughts: I forgot to post this when she was actually wearing it.  The LFR coloration of the mask shows up gray in game, and reddish brown in the Armory.  Wat.

“Darksong” Set

"Darksong" Set

“Darksong” Set

Class: Druid

H: Crown of Malorne | S: Conqueror’s Nightsong Spaulders | Cl: Not shown
Ch: Don Rodrigo’s Poncho | Wa: Sash of Musing | L: Brutal Gladiator’s Kodohide Legguards
G:
Darkbrand Gloves | Wr: Not shown | B: Not shown trollolol

Staff: Bleak Scythe

Status: Finished

Thoughts: This would be my first attempt at creating a more darker, more deathly druid, one who has an outlook focused less on regrowth and more on the decay that often precedes it.

This outfit was only doable thanks to the assistance of guildmates and friends.  Because I can’t chicken (or cat), I had to ask for help getting through Kara and Hyjal in a timely fashion for the helm and chest.  Even if I could chicken, I still would have had to ask for their help when it came to the shoulders, since those are purchased with a token that only drops from Yoggies 25 man.  Clearly, when it comes to mogging, I always pick the easiest items to obtain.  /facepalm

Next up for Betheki, the druid fashionista – a dark green, trollish set.  The Zandalari may be old news, mon, but voodoo never goes out of style.

“Golden Harmony” Set

"Golden Harmony" Set

“Golden Harmony” Set

Class: Shaman

H: Not shown | S: Shoulderwraps of Celestial Harmony (flex) | Cl: Not shown
Ch: Golden Links of Restoration | Wa: Belt of the Ardent Marksman | L: Leggings of the Tireless Sentry
G:
Rock-Giant’s Pinky Cover | Wr: Not shown | B: Amberpine Greaves

Dagger: Blood Weeper
Shield: Gizlock’s Hypertech Buckler

Status: Finished

Thoughts:  According to my scientific research, if armor sparkles, glows or moves, the coolness factor is increased exponentially.  I love this shaman tier.  Ok, so maybe not quite as much as I ❤ the Firebird set from Vaults/HoF, but I still love it – the shoulders in particular.  They remind me of sparkly gyroscopes, and what could be better for a goblin!?  I dug out one of my favorite shields as well, Gizlock’s Hypertech Buckler.  Engineers can make a similar shield, I believe, but this one drops from Maraudon for those of us who can’t.  It rotates too!

Full disclosure: I should note that farming anything from Maraudon is kinda a pain in the tush due to the distance you must travel to get in/out of the instance.  I actually picked up this shield back when I was leveling.
