Trial of Style

Last time I participated in the “Trial of Style”, I lost one trial after the other. So, I wasn’t very eager to participate this time. On Friday, I gathered all my courage and went on the transmog fest. The themes were: “Summer Styles” and “Winter Wear”.

Granted, while I love my character to look pretty bad-ass, I’m a complete noob in transmog. Regardless, I’m pretty proud to say that I won the two trials in a row. At first I couldn’t believe I won. Now, it got me motivated to go on an appearance collecting spree.

I have to admit that it’s much easier and much more fun transmogging my character now that she’s a Blood Elf. They get away with almost everything. Life must be so easy being an arrogant beauty ;p

Transmog lately

Something I’ve always neglected a little bit in the game was the entire transmog madness. Not that I don’t like it, to the contrary, I love it. Who wouldn’t want his character to look cute bad-ass?! I guess that I just didn’t have enough time before to dedicate to this part of the game.

Since I had a lot of Marks of Honor sitting in my bags, I kind of started itching to get some of those nice PvP transmog sets. So, off I went to Netherstorm and Area 52 to get some new gear. I’ve bought four in total: the Vengeful Gladiator’s Chain Armor, the Gladiator’s Chain Armor, the Warmongering Combatant’s Chain Armor and the Ruthless Gladiator’s Chain Armor.

Time for me to change my everlasting Merciless set! I’ve been wearing that last one for a couple of years now, I guess it’s time to do some laundry…

This is the set I’ve equipped at the moment: the The Vengeful Gladiator’s Chain Armor. The thing I like the most about this gear is that it looks very gloomy, as if death is coming for you. Now, I don’t have a lot of guns in my collection so, the one I’ve used is the only one I have that suits this set: Spare Gunship Cannon. I have to admit that I love the little fuse on top of the gun, it looks like it’s ready to explode at any minute.

My second favourite is the the Gladiator’s Chain Armor. I’m not a big fan of the gun I’m using with this set: Pearl-Handled Long Gun. Like I’ve said before: I don’t have a lot of guns in my collection. I have to admit that I was a huge fan of bows before Legion. It’s only after Legion that I started loving equipping guns that much. I guess that I’ll have to start working on expanding my collection.

The third set isn’t my favourite, but I kind of like it anyway: the Warmongering Combatant’s Chain Armor. The gun that suits best with this transmog, in my humble opinion, is the Baleful Rifle. It looks big, mean and like it survived a few wars… just like I like it ^^

This last one is my least favourite: the Ruthless Gladiator’s Chain Armor with the Amber Sprayer of Klaxxi’vess. Normally, I should get the Lunarglow Gun with this set, but I haven’t had much luck finding it lately which is the reason why I’m currently using this one.

Like I’ve said, the Ruthless set isn’t my favourite, in fact, I’m quite disappointed with the looks of it. I had seen a few screenshots on Wowhead of a Troll wearing it and thought: awesome! Until I equipped it on my Orc and realized that it’s way too flashy for a hunter. I’m not a big fan of flashy colours for hunters. You’re supposed to blend in with your surroundings and sneak up on your prey, and not wave around like a flamboyant flag.

Anyway, you may have noticed that I never show my helm and cloak. The reason is very simple: I love to see the face of my character so, why cover it up? And, cloaks are, in my opinion, too messy for classes that need to be agile. I just can’t imagine my hunter jumping around with a cloak that, most likely, would make her stumble on every occasion.
