WoW Factor Comes to Emerald Dream

The Violent Apathy Fashion Friends
The Violent Apathy Fashion Friends

I made a post last week mentioning the WoW Factor coming to my server, Emerald Dream. The day finally came this past Friday and it was a toooon of fun! There is already a very nice write-up on the event over on WoW Roleplay Gear, which you should definitely read. If you have the means, I would highly recommend you try sponsoring your own WoW Factor show on your server. It was amazing to see so many people come out for the show and have so many others donate gold to keep it going longer! A big thanks to the judges--Elvine, Ironyca, Noelani and guest Caylena--that came to the server and to all my guild members that donated gold so Violent Apathy could sponsor the event!

Since it is still Tuesday, to the left you will see the transmog set I wore to the WoW Factor. Since my guild was sponsoring the event I wasn't going to enter, but vanity got the better of me and I entered the final round to see what would happen. This outfit won me 10k! If you've looked back far enough in my archive to see my first post you may recognize this set, only this time with a few minor changes.

Chest: Arcane Robe
Feet: Regal Boots

Main-hand: Jaded Crystal Dagger
Off-hand: Mystic Tome

Is that a sexy death knight? Yeah, that's a sexy death knight. The best thing about this set is that any plate-wearing class can use it. Wear it on your paladin and be a walking paradox!

Armor Type: Plate
Restrictions: None

Head: Dragonsteel Faceplate
Shoulder: Pauldrons of Unnatural Death
Back: Peerless Cloak
Chest: Tempered Saronite Breastplate
Hands: Crude Discolored Battlegrips
Waist: Tempered Saronite Belt
Legs: Tempered Saronite Legplates

Main-hand: Runed Soulblade

This week's request comes from one of my favorite podcasters and all around cool guy, Ceraphus! There are many links associated with Ceraphus since he's pretty busy around the internet; there's a podcast, a couple of blogs and a guild that's been around since the original WoW beta. Phew!

If you are not Ceraphus or a death knight but still want to replicate this set, the Runeblade of Baron Rivendare has the same model as the Runed Soulblade, and is a rare drop from Lord Aurius Rivendare.

Happy hunting!

Have a Little Priest (and the WoW Factor Show)

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Cloth
Restrictions: None

Head: Cowl of Benevolence
Shoulder: Amice of Brilliant Light
Back: Mantle of Vivification
Chest: Runecloth Robe
Hands: Gossamer Gloves
Waist: Historian's Sash
Feet: Ringo's Blizzard Boots

Main-hand: Jaded Crystal Dagger
Off-hand: Fire Runed Grimoire

I've had that head and shoulder combination sitting in my bank for some time but I was never really able to come up with anything that I liked with it. I also have the robe to go along with them, and although priest tier 6 is one of my all-time favorite sets in the game, I didn't really want to look exactly like a priest. This still looks pretty priestly to me, but at least I don't feel like I'm just wearing a recoloured set, so I'm happy!

Also, if any of you readers play on Emerald Dream (US), the WoW Factor is coming to our server this weekend! It's scheduled for Saturday, May 26 at 9pm EST. I'm so excited! My guild, Violent Apathy, will be sponsoring the event so you can expect to see a lot of us out there! If you're not able to come participate in the event, please come by just to watch. It will be lots fun, I hope! Check out this forum post for more details!

Electric Funeral Pyre

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Cloth
Restriction: Mage only

Shoulder: Heroes' Frostfire Shoulderpads
Chest: Funeral Pyre Vestment
Wrists: Gossamer Bracers
Hands: Gossamer Gloves
Waist: Gossamer Belt
Feet: Gossamer Boots

Main-hand: Blade of Serration
Off-hand: Fire Runed Grimoire

At first, I hated these shoulders and was going to get rid of them. You don't really see a whole lot of orange and blue cloth armor, but it provided an interesting challenge to match something that didn't include any other tier 7 pieces. I do not want to have to go back into Naxxramas unless absolutely necessary!

Still looking for a better off-hand item...

Furgotten Love

Armor Type: Cloth
Restrictions: Alliance Only

Shoulder: Mantle of the Locusts
Back: Glacial Cloak
Chest: Fur Covered Robe
Hands: Ebonweave Gloves
Waist: Girdle of Nobility
Feet: Linen Boots

Main-hand: Halion, Staff of Forgotten Love / Engraved Gargoyle Femur

Sunday, Sexy Sunday! WoW Model Viewer doesn't show the gloves very well, so I'd recommend checking out the 3D view on Wowhead to get an idea of how it would really look. There is also an alternative option linked for the main-hand weapon if you don't really feel like going into ICC. I really wouldn't blame you...

Lay Off My Blue Celestial Shoes

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Cloth
Restrictions: None

Head: Shadoweave Mask
Shoulder: Titan-Forged Shoulderpads of Salvation
Back: Dory's Embrace
Chest: Anraphet's Regalia
Hands: Shadowy Laced Handwraps
Waist: Wrathful Gladiator's Cord of Alacrity
Feet: Celestial Slippers

Main-hand: Tainted Twig of Nordrassil

It's been a while since we had a transmog set for our little gnome buddies. I tend to dislike most headpieces on gnomes just because they look so unproportionately gigantic, but these bandana mask things are one of the few styles that don't make me think of those bobble head toys you put in your car.

This set doesn't just look good on gnomes either, I'm tempted to farm it up for my mage! I really like the blue and purple together and I really, really like that staff. If only I didn't have to use a stupid dagger, siiiiigh.

Silver-Thread and Red

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Cloth
Restrictions: None

Head: Circle of Flame
Shoulder: Soulstealer Mantle
Back: Vengeance Wrap
Chest: Silver-Thread Robe
Hands: Netherweave Gloves
Waist: Silver-Thread Sash
Feet: Saltarello Shoes

Main-hand: Blood Weeper
Off-hand: Fire Runed Grimoire

I'm trying something different this week. I suppose this set is more warlocky than magey, but I bought this robe ages ago and I had to use it eventually... I know the cloak is red, but I thought it was a nice contrast and the red thing on the belt kind of ties it all in. Or maybe I'm just silly.

Reader Submission!

A few days ago, I got a lovely surprise in my email! A very pretty lady that goes by the name @byhayley on Twitter sent me a few screenshots of her hunter Traxden and paladin Aryas in their transmog sets and I think they look faaaantastic. Seriously, seeing this made my day. It's so nice to get feedback from you guys, so keep it coming!

Nothing Comes Between Me and My Big Sword!

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Plate
Restrictions: None

Shoulder: Spaulders of Manifold Eyes
Back: Mantle of Fury 
Chest: Bloodfist Breastplate
Hands: Bloodfist Gloves
Waist: Stormforged Belt
Legs: Bloodfist Legplates
Feet: Bloodfist Greaves

Main-hand: Keen Obsidian Edged Blade

It's Sexy Sunday! If you're not up to doing heroic Firelands, the normal version of the shoulders will do just fine. Bladed Flamewrath Cover also provides a nice alternative cloak if you do not have access to the Mantle of Fury.

Jastor Gallywix

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Cloth
Restrictions: None

Shoulder: Elder Wizard's Mantle
Chest: Cat Lover's Vest
Hands: Runecloth Gloves
Waist: Runecloth Belt
Legs: Astralaan Pants
Feet: Imbued Netherweave Boots

The same shoulders Gallywix wears in game are not available in the right colour, so the Elder Wizard's Mantle is a good alternative. The pants aren't quite right because of the black band around the knees, but they are the only pants I could find that were white enough. It's not perfect, but I think I got pretty damn close!

You Left Me Standing Alone...

Click here for 3D view!
Armor Type: Cloth
Restrictions: None

Shoulder: Ternary Mantle
Back: Azure Silk Cloak
Chest: Glacial Robe
Hands: Manaspark Gloves
Waist: Sage's Sash
Feet: Shimmering Geta

Weapon: Ethereum Life-Staff

Another request! This time, @dwood7677 asked me to put together a set with the Glacial Robe. Too bad the Glacial Shoulders are no longer in the game, it was tough to match another pair. The Ethereum Life-Staff is a lot less purple in-game so trust me, it does match!

The entire time I was making this set, I had this song stuck in my head...

Robes of the Eggsalted

Click here for 3D view!
Armor type: Cloth
Restrictions: Mage only

Head: Enigma Circlet
Shoulder: Enigma Shoulderpads
Back: Cloak of Entropy
Chest: Robes of the Exalted
Hands: Rockwurm Hide Handwraps
Waist: Belt of Arcane Storms
Feet: Ringo's Blizzard Boots

Main-hand: Starshard Edge
Off-hand: Fire Runed Grimoire

That's right, it's Tuesday! Showoff time!

I really, really, really love this headpiece. I guess I have a thing for wearing crowns and tiaras (not in real life though, I'm not that crazy) so this is right up my alley. If you have a clothie, I beg you to farm for your AQ set! Priests, mages and warlocks all share the same set in different colours. I'm not crazy about the colours in the priest set, but the warlock robe... wow! The back of it is so amazing.

This week I have also noticed this silly thing I do; whenever I'm fire spec, I tend to wear blue and purple and when I'm arcane I wear red and I'll never be frost so I guess I'll never know what urges I have for that spec. I'm a little backwards! I wonder, does anyone else have strange transmogging habits?
