Mogging - When Less is More

You know Sandrene's Invisible Vest? It's a quest reward that, when worn, doesn't show on your toon. It has really fabulous possibilities, especially for those male toons who want to look like He-Man or a Demon Hunter. I was all excited about mogging this vest. No, I didn't want to go around in my underwear. There are a lot of really cute shirts that you can wear under the chest piece and mogging Sandrine's would allow the shirts to be seen. But, no. Can't be mogged. Fail, Blizz, Fail!!

BUT Blizzard DID give us The Emperor's New Cape which drops off of Emperor Dagran Thaurissan in Blackrock Depths. THIS they make moggable when we already have the option to hide our cloaks. CRAZY!

There ARE some useful invisible items out there! Are you a Death Knight? If so, you're in luck! The Archerus Knight's Girdle you get from the starter zone is invisible!

Did you miss out on Griftah's Authentic Troll Shoes during the Barrens Invasion event? If you're a Tauren, Troll or Draenei these will be invisible:
  • Mail wearers: Tsunami Boots
  • Plate wearers: Ancient Skeletal Boots / Boots of the Funeral March / Foreshadow Steps / (Paladin only) Crafted Dreadful Gladiator's Greaves of Meditation & Alacrity
  • Cloth wearers: There are SO MANY that I can't list them all. I'm mostly a Draenei-person, so I take all my ladies out to Azuremyst for the Kurkenstoks and don't keep any other "invisible" ones.
  • Leather wearers: Ravenholdt Boots

Are you out of bank space? If you dual wield, you don't need to get both fist weapons - you can use the same weapon to mog both hands!

Do you have a soulbound item that you don't use much? Check on WowHead to see if it has a look-a-like BOE version. Buy it at the AH or farm it and send it to an alt bank for storage until you want to wear it again. Delete the soulbound one.

There are also some fun/unique items for transmog. Have an alchemist? Mog the offhand with a Vial of Chloroform if you haven't already done the Alliance Redridge quest that rewards it. Even better, mog a beaker of Tears of Heaven which is a vendor item you don't have to farm or quest for!

There are Picks, Shovels, cricket cages, lanterns and even pots of boiled squirrels! There are multiple versions of these items, so just click on the "same model as" tab on wowhead to search for other versions that might be easier to get.

Engineers have many options for goggles, but I think my favorite is still the Gnomish Mind Control Cap - I just wish that some of the hats wouldn't make our hair disappear :P

There's a similar cloth cap found in (dare I say it?!?) GNOMEREGAN: Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator.

Do you use unique or fun items in your transmog? I'd love to see pictures!

I was looking at random WoW stuff today and decided to look up my baby warlock (she's 99.. don't tell her I called her a baby!).

This is her picture on the armory:

She looks like she's having a pretty rough time, doesn't she? Like maybe she ate too much chocolate or something...

She started out transmogged, but she's in questing greens/blues now. I like the cloth questing sets and this "white" version is my favorite.

Shoulders: Shadowviel Mantle
Chest: "Fireproof" Venture Co. Robes
Waist: Shadowviel Cord
Gloves: Steamburst Gloves
Shoes: Fungal Resistant Slippers

Weird.. armory doesn't show the staff she's weilding. That's ok, I'm disappointed in it (Admiral Taylor's Staff of Wisdom) anyway, it looks like a Mists staff and nothing like I feel a Draenor staff should look like.

I suppose the Fireproof robe and Fungal Resistant slippers could be a clue as to why she looks to be in so much pain..

So... yeah.. there was an expansion that dropped a while back...

... you may have heard of it? Well.. I've been slightly obsessed about it, totally forgot about this blog-thing. I can't believe it was OCTOBER the last time I've posted! Well, only two people read this anyway, and I'm one of them :P

Here's Barlafumble at the start of WoD. This here armor itself spans several expansions :) There are a couple versions of the top (and the sets that go with them) and they're among my favorite pieces.

I'm really liking Draenor mogging for the most part. At least on Barla, everything she's picked up really FEELS hunterish. I'll get to that post soon, I promise.

This Is How I Roll

Barla battling bosses while bubbled and blowing bubbles. That is how it is done, folks.

So the toy box will be here tomorrow - I can't wait!! One of my favorite toys, the Ogre Pinata, has a place in the box so all of my girls can use it.

Bubblegum for EVERYONE!

Oh, yeah, and the WoD pre-patch launch event starts, too. I'm excited about it, really I am. It's just.. TOYS.


Tuesday night I am logging into the game after work JUST TO SEE BAG SPACE. I'm not playing. I won't join in on the fun of running the new Blackrock or questing in that one place with the portal that I can't think the name of right now (it'll come to me later over dinner when I blurt it out to The Husband and he wonders what sort of demon has taken me over now - I swear that whenever I talk to him about WoW he gets this look on his face like I'm speaking in tongues).

First Zandalari Warbringer Solo

So Barlafumble has been working on her August Celestial rep - she has been holding onto the Reins of the Thundering Ruby Cloud Serpent. It's a beautiful mount, but it's starting to stink up her backpack a lil' bit.

When the dailies were done and while waiting for Starre (slowpoke!!), I spotted one of the warbringers. Boredom kinda gets me into trouble.. and apparently I haven't had enough repair bills lately.. so I think "hey! lets kill it!".

I died twice. I didn't have a tank pet!! Flash is hanging out in the stables because I changed the ones I keep on hand for raiding.

So yeah, twice. Then it hits me.. THERE ARE TURTLES RIGHT HERE WHERE I'M DYING.

I never said I was smart..

Tamed a turtle and TA DA!!

Only took that one time with Turtle. He looks pretty smug with himself for having carried me through the fight.

And.. yes.. as I write this I realize that I could have changed Hamilton's spec from Ferocity to Tenacity in the very beginning.

I never said I was smart....

Slacker Update

Yep, I am such a slacker. I've been playing, and I still transmog (even more than once a day!), I just haven't been posting.

I could say that I've been busy trying to get things done before the patch hits, but I'd be lying :P I am too easily distracted.

Starre has opened up Equinox to more people and that's turning out really well. I enjoy meeting new folks and I'm really hoping we end up creating teams for raiding, etc.

I sat down today and made a to-do list and it turned out pretty long. I stared at it, edited it a little, added more things, took other things off.

You know, I don't really need a list. There are TWO things I ABSOLUTELY NEED to do before the expansion.

  1. Finish the green fire quest on my warlock. I'm at the last boss and am having issues - I'm too slow/clumsy/uncoordinated/impatient and I die quickly. I've had him down to 74%...
  2. Obtain the Thundering Serpent Hatchling. This should be fun. This will require me joining a guild who has it unlocked, leveling a new toon and reaching Revered with them. There's a list over on of guilds who will let people in just for the purpose of getting the pet. I think this is really great of the guilds who do that!!
I would like to get the legendary cloaks for at least the warlock and priest (I only have one and it's on Barlafumble), but .. meh... they'll end up getting replaced in the next expansion anyway, right? (please say yes)

Anyway.. here's what I've been up to:

Nequissime has been working on her Insane title. She went Disc and.. omg.. I've been queuing as HEALS. And I haven't even been yelled at yet.

Barlafumble turned Blood Elf, got the Pureblood Fire Hawk mount, turned Draenei.

Elsebeth has been working on the green fire quest. She used to love the Black Temple. Now all she wants is to get the green fire and use it to tear the damn place down stone by stone.

Overlord's Plate

The final WoD account upgrade and my 3rd insta-90.

I'm torn on instant 90's, but since I had to upgrade three accounts, I wasn't about to let the upgrades go to waste.

Good: another Tiller farm means that I never have to farm for materials. YAY!

Bad: don't know how to play the toons. Honestly, this isn't so bad. They'll be living at Halfhill and I have two "mains" which is really all I have time for.


Meet Nicia, my new warrior. The swords are a Gnome-only Warrior quest reward.

Head: Overlord's Crown
Shoulders: Overlord's Spaulders
Chest: Overlord's Chestplate
Waist: Overlord's Girdle
Legs: Overlord's Legplates
Feet: Overlord's Greaves
Gloves: Overlord's Gauntlets
Tabard: Renowned Guild Tabard
Main Hand: Very Light Sabre
Off Hand: Very Light Sabre
