Greetings fellow transmog fans. I hope you have all had or having a good Christmas break, and I truly wish you all the best for 2016!
I completed this transmog a few weeks ago and have been anxious to share it. Pearlie is my goblin Shaman, and she is an alt. I do not play her much, but was really inspired to plan and execute a transmog for her. I will first show you my original idea, and then how she has turned out. The only thing that will be different is the weapon(s), but as this character is not one that I raid with or play seriously, you will see why I am currently unable to get the “dream” weapon combination.
Head: Prideful Gladiator’s Ringmail Helm
Shoulders: Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Mail Spaulders
Back: Dirl’s Drafty Drape
Chest: Prideful Gladiator’s Ringmail Armor
Hands: Streamtalker Gloves
Waist: Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Waistguard of Cruelty
Legs: Leggings of Broken Magic
Feet: Wayfaring Boots
Weapon: Kromog’s Brutal Fist
Shield: Heart of the Clefthoof
As you can see the mace here is from Hellfire Citadel Heroic, and the shield is from the same raid on Mythic. Not currently going to happen for my little Shaman here, but I thought they suited this transmog beautifully.
The colours in the weapons are brought out in the whole outfit and tie it all together in a lovely bow. I love the visceral shamanistic feel of this transmog. I wanted to try and create a look that would embody all of the different elements, and show the connection to the earth.
I was also happy to be able to incorporate this back piece. I love these colours and the lanterns and I feel that it matches the rest of the outfit and intention behind it well.
Now, as this is not a raiding character, and I am currently specced Elemental, Pearlie wields a staff. There are actually several staves that would match this outfit, and one of the ones I had in mind at first was the ‘Spire of the Furious Construct‘. I ended up with a couple of PvP staves in the end though, for two reasons. The first is that this character has not completed the Silver challenge to be able to enter heroic dungeons in WoD, (yeah I know, how lazy am I?) and the second is that I was doing a lot of Ashran runs to gain the honor points to buy a lot of this armour, and acquired a couple of nice staves that actually match this outfit by accident.
I will now entertain you all with a series of screenshots to show off Pearlie in her transmog from within the game. I hope you enjoy.
In this last image you can see a closeup of the top of the staff that I am currently using. It is the ‘Wild Gladiator’s Energy Staff‘ which I have infused with the Illusion called ‘Executioner‘. While the staff is arguably the most valuable looking item that Pearlie carries, I liked the floating red/pink crystal and the purple cloth holding parts of it together. The Illusion brought the shaman element in for me. It looks like small shiny rocks or crystals falling away from the spire. This helmet amuses me to no end on a Goblin which is one of the few races that can really pull it off.
I hope you enjoyed this transmog! Coming up soon on the blog will be a few transmogs that I have created for friends within WoW that I would like to share. Come by again soon to check those out!
