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.

“Engineer of Damnation” Set

H: Cowl of the Grand Engineer | S: Mantle of the Corrupted | Cl: Not shown
Ch: Vermillion Robes of the Dominant | Wa: Thuzadin Sash | L: Not shown
G: Savage Gladiator’s Mooncloth Gloves | Wr: Not shown | B: Sorcerer Slippers

Staff: Damnation

Thoughts: So Ailabeth’s last, more lady-like lavender look didn’t suit her very well (although now, post 5.1 patch, I can finally see offhands).  Actually, I think I left her in that outfit for about a week before I pretty much had a “OMGWTFBBQ!11 HAVE I DONE” type of fit and went back to the drawing board.  I’ve been fiddling with this set on and off since then.  (I actually wrote the gear list for this post at the end of November.)

The staff (Damnation, which is aaaactually dropped by the Four Horsemen as I recall, not Gluth) is one of my favorites in the game.  It’s got a simple yet super effective design that isn’t too burdened with thingies but still stands out.  That was the basic idea with the rest of this: powerful, but not too burdened with floofy dangly glowy OMGLOOKATME kind of accessories.  Ailabeth probably looks a little warlockian here, but overall, I’m much happier with this set for her.   It better matches her overdramatic personality.

The Cowl of the Grand Engineer was the last thing I needed.  When it dropped, Cal decided to tease me by not rolling on it.  Funny, right?  Sure, except I’d just run Thermalix through the raids for her planned sets and NOTHING she needed dropped (AGAIN), so when the Cowl didn’t show up in my bags and Cal mentioned I would get it “slowly,” I had a slight … uh … well, let’s just say it took me awhile to calm down.
