Transmog Overload - Top 5 Transmogrification Outfits
With the introduction of Transmogrification in World of Warcraft Patch 4.3 players have found that they can finally break free of the shackles of look alike set pieces that once held them. No longer does the Druid wearing the latest Tier gear look exactly like the next raiding Druid, instead each player now has a plethora of options when it comes to gear. However, with so many amazing gear options now available through Transmogrification, choosing exactly what you want your toon to wear inside WoW can be a challenge.
However, I’ve found the best remedy for beating this challenge and becoming overwhelmed with the choices before you is to check out other player’s favorite Transmogrification outfits. That’s why I’ve compiled my own personal top 5 favorite Transmogrification costumes to put on display for your viewing pleasure. Hopefully these will inspire you to trick out your own WoW characters in truly epic ways. Enjoy!
Mem’s Top 5 WoW Transmogrification Outfits:
Transmogrification Choice # 1
Let’s face it, Tier 6 Warlock gear, otherwise known as the Malefic Raiment, is the bomb. Never before or since has WoW Warlock gear looked so stunningly Warlocky. From its demon skull helm, to the massive randomly sprouting wings, that I was unsuccessful in capturing in this model, this set is everything a Warlock set should be and more. Complete the look with a badass looking weapon such as the Tempest of Chaos and Book of the Dead off-hand for the full effect. Using Transmogrification to outfit your Warlock in this set will not only ensure you look good but should also successfully instill fear into the hearts of your foes.
For those wishing to use this set for Transmogrification purposes the Malefic Raiment can be obtained from turn-in token pieces that drop from various bosses inside the Hyjal Summit, Sunwell Plateau, and Black Temple instance. These tokens can then be exchanged to obtain each set piece. The Tempest of Chaos also drops inside Hyjal Summit, from Archimonde while the Book of the Dead comes from Balnazzar found inside Statholme.
Transmogrification Choice # 2
Who doesn’t enjoy a surprise? I know I do and what could be more of a surprise than finding out the rather unremarkable WoW fisherman decked out in complete fishing attire that appears to be an easy kill isn’t what he or she seems. While the fishing attire shown to the right isn’t much to look at, flagging yourself PvP and waiting for unsuspecting victims is truly worth the rather shabby look of this gear. So take a chance, have some fun, and try out this unusual Transmogrification choice for your everyday wear. If nothing else you have an excellent set of gear to really get you into the fishing mood.
This outfit includes simple pieces such as the Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat which is dropped by Twilight Firecatchers in Grim Batol and also has a chance to drop from the Bag of Fishing Treasures that is rewarded to players after completing the daily quests given by Old Man Barlo at Slimyr Lake outside Shattrath City, Blue Overalls which can be created for you by any Tailor. The final two pieces (told you this set was simple!) are Nat Pagle’s Extreme Anglin’ Boots which are a reward from the quest “Rare Fish - Brownell’s Blue Striped Racer” which can be found in the Cape of Stranglethorn and finally the most difficult to obtain piece; some Fingerless Gloves that are only dropped by Thuros Lightfingers, a rare spawn in Elwynn Forest, to really give you that hobo fisherman look.
Transmogrification Choice # 3
I love the moose helm, you love the moose helm, we all love the moose helm. That’s why if you are a Druid and you are in search of a Transmogrification outfit then you simply must try on Druid Tier 2 otherwise known as the Stormrage Raiment. Some may argue that there are better looking Druid sets out there, but in my book Blizzard really hit the mark about what it means to be a Druid when they introduced Tier 2 into WoW. Couple this set with the Legacy of Arlokk for a Druid look that can’t be beat.
All of the Stormrage Raiment pieces can be gained by defeating various bosses inside Blackwing Lair except for the legs which come from the Molten Core version of Ragnaros. The Legacy of Arlokk drops from Jin’do the Godbreaker who can be found inside the depths of the recently revamped troll instance Zul’Gurub.
Transmogrification Choice # 4
Perfect for the healing Priest, the Avatar Raiment all but screams “Hey! I’m a Priest!“. Slightly decadent without being overdone everything about this outfit from the colors to the wings works together in perfect harmony. Don’t despair though Shadow Priests, this Transmogrification option is not outside of your realm. The Avatar Raiment manages takes on a deliciously sinister look when coupled with Shadow Form making this appealing to Priests across the board. Think this set couldn’t possibly get any better? Couple this WoW set with the Staff of Immaculate Recovory which is almost an exact replica of the gear, and you will see your toon decked out in Priestly perfection.
Players can pick up pieces of the Avatar Raiment inside Serpentshrine Cavern and The Eye (Tempest Keep), while the Priest on a stick staff (otherwise known as the Staff of Immaculate Recovery) drops from Gurtogg Bloodboil who can be found residing within the Black Temple.
Transmogrification Choice # 5
My final choice is one that to be honest will only look good on female toons. Sorry those who play male characters, some things just don’t look as good on you. This outfit is comprised of the most of the Engraved Mail set along with the Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix giving your female Hunter (or any other toon that can wear mail) a smoking hot red and gold look. Sure we can wonder how exactly this armor would protect one in actual combat, but I think we should all just sit back and enjoy the aesthetics of this potential Transmogrification gear instead. Now if only I could talk my wife into wearing things like this life would be perfect indeed.
This set includes the Engraved Pauldrons, Breastplate, Leggings, Boots, Bracers, and Gauntlets are all random drops that come with varying enchantments upon them. These set pieces drop from various mobs found in level 55-60 zones such as Blasted Lands, Swamp of Sorrows, and Silithus making this WoW set one of the more challenging to obtain. The Sunfury Bow of Phoenix is a little bit more straightforward and drops from Prince Malchezaar the final boss inside of Karazhan.
