Transmog Overload - Top 5 Transmogrification Outfits

Updated Tue, Jan 10, 2012 by Mem

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.

You can get the same outfit as Tier-1 five-man dungeon set at the Darkmoon Faire replica vendor named Barum. It's not restricted by class, which means a Mage for instance, can wear this classy Pally transmog set. You can buy it a piece at a time. It's quite expensive in Darkmoon Faire prize tokens which you earn by doing daily and monthly quests. Some of the quests are quite fun, like a day at the fair!

If you are exalted with the Shattered Sun Offensive then you will be able to buy the Dawnforged Defender, an awesome shield that compliments the beauty of this set.

Add the Tabard of the Shattered Sun for an even better look.

Add the one-hand Sun-Forged Cleaver or two-hand Blade of the Titans and you got the BEST LOOKING TRANSMOG SET in all of WoW!!!

The outfit on my hunter:

As a headpiece, I use the Crown of Destruction, dropped by Ragnaros in Molten Core.
For my chest, gloves, legs and boots I use Blood Knight pieces, trash greens from Outland.
For shoulders and belt I use Masterwork pieces, subtle but nicely shaped.
My bow is Heartstriker, a drop from Broodlord Lashlayer in Blackwing Lair,
and my polearm is Terokk's Quill, a quest reward in Sethekk Halls.
Bracers don't really matter as they disappear underneath the gloves.

I don't display my cloak, don't use a shirt or tabard.

Note that my hunter is a female blood elf, I cannot predict outcome on say, a male dwarf.
