It has been a while that I have wanted to put together a transmog that would feel Darnassian. Or at least like a night elf Sentinel. A few pieces of armour exist that come close to the sentinels in game, and I have chosen them, plus made a change here and there.
The breastplate that matches the in game sentinels the best is made of Plate and so is not one that I can use for a transmog as a hunter. Instead, I opted for something similar.
So as you can see, I have stood myself next to a Sentinel in Darnassus so you can compare side by side.
Hands: Nethersteel Gauntlets
The Helm is pretty much the exact same as the Sentinels in the game wear. I made a change to the shoulder slot as I could not find the best duplicate which would have been the Impenetrable Pauldrons. I farmed for them for a while, and checked the Auction House, but had no luck. I opted for the ones above instead, which are actually very similar to the ones that the Silverwing Sentinels in the game use. You can fly down to Ashenvale to see them and compare for yourself. Let me know what you think!
Another bow which would look nice with this look, is the Ironfeather Longbow. Sadly I am no longer able to get this item, as when I completed the quest some time ago I did not choose it as a quest reward. The reason for this, I believe was, that Transmog was not yet in the game, and so I did not pick it up due to lack of space. Also, at the time, the stats on it were for a Warrior (this has been changed since then). I mourn this loss, as it is pretty much the one item that I would love to own. Especially as a night elf. This bow is very similar to the one that Tyrande now wields within the game.
I also went and picked up the Silverwing Battle Tabard. As I have chosen to model at least the shoulders after them, I thought I could complete the look with their tabard. If you go with the more “traditional” shoulders you could also complete your look with the Darnassus Tabard.
Lastly I just want to thank the website WoW Roleplay Gear, for the help I found there while putting together my Sentinel look. 🙂
