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: Green

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


Prinnie: I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop here, you know.

Ignitine: But I’m wearing both of them.

Prinnie: That’s not what I mean!  I’m just sayin’, it looks like you’re plotting something, and I just don’t think it’s going to end well for anyone.

Ignitine: My plots always end well for me, though.

Prinnie: Where’s Esplodine?  She’s a fashionista!  I should get her to do this month’s contest. It would be safer.

Ignitine: Oh, I sent her a bunch of greens and told her to put them on the AH for great profit.  She doesn’t use any sort of AH addon, so we won’t be seeing her for awhile.

Sweet, Sweet Profits Don't wanna wake up 'til it's real.

Sweet, Sweet Profits
Don’t wanna wake up ’til it’s real.

Prinnie: Wow, well done.

Ignitine: Damn straight!

"Swamplight Conjurer" Set

“Swamplight Conjurer” Set

The “Swamplight Conjurer” Set

Class: Warlock

H: Savage Gladiator’s Felweave Cowl | S: Savage Gladiator’s Felweave Amice | Cl: Swamplight Cloak
Ch: Gladiator’s Dreadweave Robe | Wa: Glyph-Lined Sash | L: Not shown
G: Gladiator’s Dreadweave Gloves | Wr: Not shown | B: Conjurer’s Shoes

Dagger: Midnight Sun
Offhand: Festering Primordial Globule (LFR)

Thoughts: So here’s a goblin gone green(er).  This is Ignitine’s subtle set.  Warlocks get a lot of nuclear snot green options for obvious reasons …

… aaaaand now that I’ve thought of “fel green” as nuclear snot green, I can’t unsee this mental picture I have of green fire actually being gobs of irradiated mucus, sneeze-hurled from the sky by some giant, invisible nose.  If you can’t shake the image now either, you’re welcome.

In other news, Ignitine made a new friend in Siege:

Gooey Sha-ling One finally agreed to go home with the goblins.

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

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.
