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.

    Grats on the new clothes! Love your thoughts on why you chose each gun — and best of luck with building up your collection more 😀

    Thank you for sharing! I wonder who made you do that… :p 😀

    Those are all some awesome lookin’ shoulders, I must say. I am a big fan of those that “sit tight and close to the neck”, if you can say that. The shape of the boots on the Warmongering Combatant’s Mail Armor set is gorgeous! Also the set in itself, I really like the leafy details, it appears very hunter-ish.

    I find guns to be too noisy in general, but I can certainly understand why you picked as you did 🙂

    I have a hard time finding nice looking headpieces I want to wear too; I often return to the same few selected onces.

    Good thoughts on why not to wear a cloak; and why not to look like a rainbow-coloured hunter 🙂

    PS. Nice new avatar you picked 🙂

    Thank you kindly, Kamalia 🙂 I sure can’t wait to see my collection grow little by little.

    Hahaha, I have no idea *grins* Thank you for inspiring me to do so! I love to document all of my experiences in wow… all those nice remembrances <3

    I'm glad you like my new avatar ^^ All credits go to Sardoken cause he's the one who made it 🙂

    The guns are less noisy then before... it was a change that I've welcomed with open arms. I, now, actually enjoy shooting with them. Which falls well since I'm a BM fan-girl 🙂 I don't think I'll ever be able to play any other spec... but I can understand that you don't like the noise. I didn't before either and lots of people are still bothered with it despite the change.

    I'm glad that I have mentioned the Warmongering set in the blog cause the more I look at it, the more I love this one. Very hunterish indeed ^^ Might become one of my favourites 🙂

    It's true that it's hard to find nice looking headsets so, I understand that you always come back to the same ones. I would too if I would like them, but like I've said: I really love to see the faces of my toons rather than hide them. It gives them a little bit more personality. But, I agree that some headsets are too awesome to hide (which are rare imho).

    I like the pvp sets a lot and I wish I had the marks to buy them. You can also see a vendor in Dalaran, right? Up behind the wall of portals maybe.

    Hah, aww np 🙂

    Oh credit to Sardoken then, gotcha!

    Aha, I see, I was not aware of that, actually; the sound being lowered. Will try to notice.

    Very glad to hear that, I do like that set a lot too 🙂 Sometimes a set needs to grow on us a little.

    Yes, it is not easy to find a headpiece that shows enough of the characters face, instead of covering it all up, you are very right 🙂

    Grats on obtaining the PvP sets and thanks for the inspiration! The Vengeful Gladiator and Warmongering Combatant sets look great on orcs.

    I agree that understated, or less flashy gear really suit hunters, although I guess some flashy colours and sets work well with Marksmanship! I’m using a really dull brown transmog at the moment, but love it anyway since it really suits the BM class fantasy ^^

    @wrathsome: hmmm, To be honest, I have no idea. I’ll have to go check it out 😉 You can get quite the collection of Marks by doing the PvP WQ’s. They are easy, fun and don’t take much time to complete. I’ve started very late in Legion doing these and yet could get enough to buy a few sets only by doing these WQ’s ????

    @Alunaria: Mostly the things that need to grow on me, are the things I stick to the longest… for some weird reason… hehehe.

    @Bryssa: Thank you kindly ???? Well, I agree that a dull brown transmog suits well with the BM hunter’s fantasy. Those are usually the best imo. The fantasy aspect counts a lot for me in the game, in fact, it’s one of the most important things to me ^^
