Unless you’ve been stuck in a dungeon the last few weeks you will be aware that Mogging is coming to a Server Near You in 4.3. If our little corner of Azeroth is any indicator, people are already out in the field frantically gathering items with which to transform their current looks. Needless to say we at ALT: ernative Towers aren’t going to be left behind in this Fashonista Free-for-All. However, we’d like to do things a little differently. That means when we dress up, we do it without reaching into the box marked ‘Tier Gear.’ In the first of a series that will see me wasting good grinding time making outfits for all my 85’s, I’ll show you what P’s gonna be wearing if she can fight her way to the Transmogrification Wallah…

They’ve got to catch me if they want me to hang…

The starting point for this outfit was armour I spent a lot of time wearing back in Vanilla, the Black Dragonscale Set, because the Shoulders are one of the very few items in that slot I could look at and not get bored/irritated with. Once I’d decided it was black for this ensemble the rest of the pieces were fairly simple to put together: a mixture of green, blue and epic (BOOTS!) pieces from four different ‘named’ sets that were purchased on the AH. I needed a polearm to match with the piece I would be mogging with and sadly none of the Vanilla or TBC skins look any good in that regard so I went instead for the Wrath skin on Banner Slicer. I regret now having not held onto Terokk’s Quill which was my favourite polearm in game for quite some time. Needless to say I know I won’t be alone in feeling that way.

A better look at the Banner Slicer and the Dark Leather Cloak which isn’t that dark… ^^

The bow for this outfit was a no-brainer, and is here to bring colour AND animation: the still awesome Rhok’delar, Longbow of the Ancient Keepers. I’m betting many Benedictions will be wielded by Priests and although I have a fair few bows/guns I could have picked to finish this outfit off I’m pretty sure none of those have flowers that grow out of them and disappear with a magical *poof* of blossom. Like I said, no-brainer.

You can’t see it blooming, but trust me it does :D

To complete the look I’ve gone for the Tabard of the Argent Dawn, long since unobtainable in the midst of Undead Invasions, just to make it be known that I’ve been around for a while, I’ve seen it all before and frankly you Night Elf Come Latelies in your Tier Gears can go stand in the corner. Female Dwarf Hunters can be stylish, co-ordinated and take your ear off with a well aimed arrow. Gun Racial my arse!

No hat mog for this outfit, by the way, which I suspect will be a theme for most of my toons and I like to see their faces. A full list of the items used are below.

  • Black Dragonscale Shoulders
  • Dark Leather Cloak
  • Blackforge Breastplate
  • Tabard of the Argent Dawn
  • Banner Slicer
  • Rhok’delar, Longbow of the Ancient Keepers
  • Renegade Gauntlets of Power
  • Renegade Belt of the Monkey
  • Mithril Scale Pants
  • Black Dragonscale Boots
