ROY G. BIV Transmog: Violet

Previously on “ROY G. BIV Transmog,” our intrepid transmog team had a difference of fashion sense, a dramatic reveal of truth, and a scene in which Prinnie rolled over and admitted Warlock Logic is the Best Logic.  Later, Prinnie learned that greedn is good, and that really, warlocks never change – pretty much ever.


Ignitine: So, this is the last one.  Are we gonna have to have a conversation here?  You know, about my motivations or something?  The composition of my choices?  The fact that I dress LIEK WARLOCK instead of taking the competition into account?

Prinnie: No, I really think it’s better if we don’t.  At this point, reality’s settled in.  Surreality?  Something.

Ignitine: I just didn’t wanna waste your time, since I’m gonna go all out.  After all, it’s easier to ask for forgiveness than it is to ask for permission!  If I wanted to, that is.

Prinnie: I’m not sure I’m ready.  Let me climb under my desk real quick.

"Broken Nightmares" Set

“Broken Nightmares” Set

Prinnie: … what was that sound I just heard?  Was that my soul breaking?

Ignitine: Oh, that?  Yeah, that’s normal.  You get used to it.

The “Broken Nightmares” Set

Class: Warlock

H: Hood of the Horned Nightmare (LFR) | S: Mantle of the Horned Nightmare (LFR) | Cl: Cloak of Seething Hatred
Ch: Bloodsoul Raiment | Wa: Belt of the Falling Rain | L: Not shown
G: Gloves of Broken Fingers | Wr: Not shown | B: Consortium Boots

Dagger: Blade of the Unmaker
Offhand: Mystifying Charm

Thoughts: And thus, the “ROY G. BIV Transmog” series concludes with the biggest, freakiest hat Ignitine could find.  Sure, it’s not the most violet-y, purple-y hat out there, but the violet accents it has TOTALLY COUNT.  Well, they count enough for a certain warlock with highly flexible standards.

I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been somewhat absent from blogging and the game in general.  I haven’t had as much time to play recently, and as a result, this rendition of the outfit isn’t exactly what I envisioned.  It’s not the exact cape or off-hand I wanted, but it’ll have to do.  I dunno about you, but what with the new expac now in beta and all, most time spent in Azeroth seems like a waiting game occupied mostly by the “MOAR CLOAKS” Project.  What’re you in here for?  Runestones.  I need them all.  What’re you in here for?  Secrets.  Do Secrets drop in here?  What’re you in here for?  Do these bosses drop Runestones?  What’re you in here for?  Don’t ask.  Just don’t ask.

ROY G. BIV Transmog: Blue

Previously on “ROY G. BIV Transmog,” our intrepid transmog team had a difference of fashion sense, a dramatic reveal of truth, and a scene in which Prinnie rolled over and admitted Warlock Logic is the Best Logic.  Later, Prinnie learned that greedn is good.


Ignitine: I want you to picture this brick wall.  It’s a very nice brick wall, very tall and thick.  Nice, solid bricks, you know, not falling apart or anything.  Now, imagine your noggin, and the brain sloshing about in it.  You may have more sloshing happening than I do.  Next, I want you to picture your skull bashing into the wall repeatedly at high speeds, all this splashing and smashing, until you either break through the wall or have a total bloody meltdown.  THAT, my friend, is how I approach things.

Prinnie: This explains so much about you.  Let’s get this month’s outfit over with, yes?

Ignitine: I’m glad you’re starting to see things my way.

"Sha" Set

“Hateful Sha” Set

Prinnie: Oh Gawd help us all, she’s gone back to normal.

Ignitine: OM NOM NOM, baby!

The “Hateful Sha” Set, or the “Om Nom Nom” Set

Class: Warlock

H: Sha-Skin Hood | S: Sha-Skin Shoulders | Cl: Platinum Mesh Cloak
Ch: Hateful Gladiator’s Felweave Raiment | Wa: Sash of the Wizened Wyrm | L: Not shown
G: Mystic’s Gloves | Wr: Not shown | B: Boots of Ethereal Manipulation

Dagger: Midnight Sun
Offhand: Talisman of Kalecgos

Thoughts: Om nom nom!

The moment I first saw this hat, I knew it was a hat responsible for the death of many things – hopes, dreams, and possibly critters.  Yes, this hat was clearly a killer, and I had to have it.  It worked out (for mostly everyone), though – Wrathie-poo wants the Chimaera of Fear from the Sha of Fear?  Yeah sure, I guess I can go grab it for him, ’cause I’m gonna be running Terrace for the hat.

Speaking of the legendary questline, Ignitine finally got her cloak at the end of last month:

Ignitine Cloak Get The wings work for warlocks.

Ignitine Cloak Get
The wings work for warlocks.

Since this contest requires you mog all visible slots, it meant she had to save a cloak for mogging purposes.

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.

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

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.

The “False Dusk” Set

"False Dusk" Set

“False Dusk” Set

Class: Priest (with helm), Mage, Warlock

H: Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Helm | S: Duskhallow Mantle | Cl: Not shown
Ch: Tormented Demonsoul Robes | Wa: Belt of False Dignity | L: Not shown
G: Amaranthine Handwraps | Wr: Not shown | B: Sorcerer Slippers

Status: Finished

Thoughts: The original idea behind this set was an “elaborate alchemist.”  Not necessarily the typical Forsaken alchemist in uniform or even in direct service, but rather someone with an alchemical background who has been around the world once or twice.  Someone who has had time to pick up fancypants more elegant tastes.  But then …

OOOOH!  HORNS

HORNS ARE COOL

YEAH

The set originally called for the Eye of Flame, which is very appropriate for the theme even if it doesn’t stand out very much.  But then I mogged the Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Helm on a whim, despite the “scales” behind the head not 100% matching when not in Shadowform.  That was it.  I could not go back.  I felt they were so awesome, I had to keep them.  Maybe it’s because I can’t indulge in my love of evil-looking horns as a goblin – somehow, being short and prone to explosionating makes the same horns look more silly than sinister.

And yes, I know.  I took mog screenshots while in LFR.  Priorities, yeah?

I don’t really have any specific weapons chosen for this getup, mostly because Ailabeth seems to change weapon type every other week or so.  First it was a dagger, then it was a 1h mace, then back again … and now that she can get into LFR, I have a suspicion that it’ll be a staff next.  As soon as her weapon situation settles down, I’ll probably pick something and/or be on to the next mog.

“Dream Lord” Set, or the “Parachute” Set

"Dream Lord" Set, or the "Parachute" Set

“Dream Lord” Set, or the “Parachute” Set

Class: Mage

H: Time Lord’s Hood | S: Furious Gladiator’s Silk Amice | Cl: Imbued Infantry Cloak
Ch: Vicious Embersilk Robe | Wa: Dreamer’s Belt | L: Not shown
G: Vicious Embersilk Gloves | Wr: Not shown | B: Riptide Shoes

Wand: Wand of Prismatic Focus
Offhand: Talisman of Nightbane

Thoughts: So I love the Time Lord’s Hood.  Love.  If I could, I’d go back in time and do Dragonsoul LFR to get that color variant, but alas!  Such a thing is no longer possible for Esplodine.  So, you do what you can, and what Esplodine CAN do is tag along and try not to die on regular 10 man runs.  The token for the helm dropped on the last Dragonsoul run she was on, but the druid healer we pugged needed on it as well and won.  Esplodine almost had a heart attack followed by an uncontrollable urge to rise from the dead, turn said tree into paper and (of course) grab the hat, but fortunately all she had to do was grovel a lot.  The druid decided the tier didn’t look good and traded the token to Esplodine.  VICTORY.

For better or worse, the moment I finally got her all nice and mogged up, I thought “parachute.”  And now I can’t unsee.

I’ve had the Talisman of Nightbane in the bank forever and always wanted to use it (IT’S A MAGICAL BLOWTORCH, YESSSSSSS), so I did.  Unfortunately, I then thought “Hindenburg,” and now I can’t unsee.

But I love the Time Lord’s Hood.

Now what?
