Day 18 – Your favourite outfit

 

Transmogging has opened up so much for the game. Tmog has added a new layer for player creativity, AH sales, older dungeon runs, and helping players bring out their own personality and styles for their toons. As you all know, I’m a huge fan of Tmog and I’m a big proponent for warlocks to always take advantage of looking good. For Amijade, I’m always torn between three main outfits. I have a lot of various sets, but for me, I keep going back to my big three!

The Silver-Thread Set

Since Amijade is an Undead warlock with her pale skin, black hair, and black leather straps across her face the Silver-Thread transmog is as close to an all black theme as you can get with any of the cloth items in game. I know some players like wearing full helmets with their tmogs, whereas I find that I’m often drawn to helms that allow some of the facial features to still be seen. The Silver-Thread set also seems to be a strong theme for any members of the Royal Apothecary Society. More often than not, the RAS members usually have several of the Silver-Thread Set key pieces mixed and matched with something a little different, such as a different color belt or cloak. For an Undead warlock, black is just a natural fit!

 

My Silver-Thread set includes:

 

The Nemesis Recolor Set

Don’t get me started on how many times I had to farm the heroics in Terrokar Forest to get all of the pieces to this set. After a week, it really did begin to feel like work. By the second week I was on auto-pilot. By the third week I was numb! I only put this set on for special occasions because lately, I’ve seen a lot of ‘locks wearing both the original version (green) and this one too. I love the Corruptor and Malefic sets too, and sadly I see them everywhere now. Gaging by how often I see them the Nemesis, Corruptor and Malefic sets are quickly becoming like a Paladin’s Judgement set. I can’t blame others for using them because all of these sets (including their recolors), are great designs and have a true warlock appeal to them.

 

My Nemesis Recolor includes:

Helm – Demonfang Ritual Helm

Shoulders – Mantle of the Three Terrors

Chest – Vermillion Robes of the Dominant

Cloak – Battleforge Cloak of the Whale, or the Cape of Orgrimmar

Belts – Nemesis Belt, or the Sash of the Burning Heart

Hands – Hands of the Sun, or the Gloves of the Deadwatcher (original for the set), or Ebony Flame Gloves

Bracers – Ember Flame Bracers

Feet – Eldr’naan Boots of Spirit 

As you can see, I mix and match the cloaks, belts and gloves. The different pieces I swap out have different accents in coloring which look better with various weapons. As with most Tmog sets, the shoulder, chest, and helm are what make it truly stand out.

 

 

Gul’dan Conquest Set

I have no idea why I like this last set on Amijade so much, but I do. My only gripe about it is that the back of the helmet piece feels a little unfinished and my toon’s hair and head can be seen through it when you see her from the backside. To personalize it to my liking, I changed the belt, gloves, and cloak so that the shoulders and helm have more of the focus. The original belt and gloves are HUGE. Both appear grossly oversized now and the original cloak that goes with the set has some over-the-top, wild and outlandish colors. I prefer a more neutral color tone for the cloak that doesn’t detract from the shoulders and helm. There’s also the Gul’dan Triumphant set which is the recolor in shades of blue instead of purple like the Conquest Set.

 

My Gul’dan Conquest set includes:

The shoulders, helm, and chest piece are from The Gul’dan Conquest Set

Belt – Imperial Red Sash

Cloak – Frostguard Drape

Gloves – Barbaric cloth gloves

Bracers – Durable bracers of the owl
