Leveling and Transmogging

Welcome back everyone to your favorite Horde-centric, multiblogger, random horde blog on WordPress. Yeah, I’m being a bit specific on this one, but hey, we really need to narrow down the audience right? I mean, without naming you guys, which we may have in the past I’m not sure, I’m not sure what to call you. So, until further notice, and we come up with a better name for you guys, I’ll call you Steve.

So, Steve, I hope your weekend was as good as mine. Real life was awesome, took the kids to a pumpkin patch/farm and had fun thing the little ones tank the headless horseman… Wait, I’m getting in game mixed up with retail life again… That happens from time to time. We did go to a pumpkin patch, there wasn’t a headless horseman giving away candy, trinkets, mounts and helmets, but we had fun none the less.

In game, Hallow’s end started up and everyone has been enjoying this… Me not so much, I’ve just been leveling my monk. He hit 69 this weekend, which was only a level off of my goal. I knew I would be pushing things to get to 70, but I thought, hey, let’s shoot for the stars. What amazed me was how far I went this weekend. I started out at 62 and I only had to do parts of hellfire and nagrand to get to 68, then I dropped everything and made a mad dash for northrend. It felt good to be back on Azeroth. Random thought, It’s a really weird feeling knowing you are on another planet… Outland is another planet… Huh, I guess I never gave it much thought.

Anyway, so I hit 68 and headed for Borean Tundra. That was fun. That zone did a good job introducing you to northrend, new races, new questing styles, and a very “cold” feel to the landscape. It did a great job transitioning into some of the more advanced zones.

I’m fully convinced I could have hit 70 this past weekend if not for one little, very addicting thing. Transmogrification. Yup, I’m still Transmogging every upgrade I get. Spending 10 minutes every gear upgrade while questing zoning back to Org, mogging the gear, and zoning back. Seriously… It’s really sad. Well, if everything goes well, I’ll be sitting at 74 by the end of the week, so I can push through to 80 next weekend. We’ll see, but either way, it’s a goal.

Welcome back to Monday folks! Look on the bright side, this week, if you reside in the U.S., you have the day off for Labor day. If you live elsewhere, sorry, welcome back to work. On Saturday, 3/4theHorde Got together while pie traveled south to visits family. Nimrock and I met up with him at one of the local Mexican establishments for dinner. Good food, good friends, and talking yours truly into playing D&D over the Internet makes for a great evening. It just sucks our other 1/4theHorde (Fikkle) is not just all the way north in Canada,  he’s even FURTHER north than usual. Who knows, if all goes as planned, we’ll be traveling to Northland next summer for a true Cana-Shenanicon meetup.
Back to WoW. As I stated in last weeks post, I am in love with the gold sink/time sink that is transmogrification. Seriously, I have multiple “outfits” for each character that I play/bank with ,and usually switch them up at least weekly… Sad I know. I wanted to take a minute and show off some of the great looks I’ve achieved over the past few months since transmoging became a thing.
First off we’ll start with my main Gozz. I’m a fan of red on my hunter, so I have a few red sets, one my self titled dragon hunter. I love the shiny red plate look with the dragon gun from BRD. My only regret is finishing the quest in SMV that gives the all red dragon head helmet years ago, before transmoging… So I can’t fully complete the look I want. Oh well.
Next is his take on the deadly gladiator set. The shoulders and helmet are the defining pieces of this set, and then throw in the org tabard and the horde bow…. S. I. C. K. Not to mention his rare Hydra pet, that can now be my tank solo pet!
Next is my two banker toons, Vos and Jesuit. Vos has spent some gold on his outfit, but with the cash he’s brought in, I’m okay with it! Here is his Silvermoon Vigilante look.
Next is his Templar Set, complete with Blade of Wizardry and His Tome of Auctionhouseing.
Next up, my bag man. He’s the guy that puts together all of the raw materials I find into bags. Bags=gold atm for me. Anyway, here is his Silver Thread set.
Finally, the character that has been through the most changes over my years of wow. He’s been an undead rogue, a gnome rogue (sad but true), a female orc rogue, a female bloodelf rogue, and now finally, has come full circle, an undead rogue. Just typing that makes me hate myself and the amount of money that has went into just race changes with this toon… not to mention server changes, and faction changes… I should quit while I’m really behind… Anwyay, here is Sylus in his newly minted Guild Colors PVP Sickle Set.
As you can see, I’m pretty sold on Transmoging. I want my gear to look how I choose, not how some dev thinks my “high end” armor should look. Some of my favorite pieces are random drops and quest loot. Those daggers Sy is sporting come from rep… from the walrus people.. I forget their name off the top of my head. What I’m saying is, they are sick, and easy to get, not heroic-hardmode-haters-gonna-hate-mode-82-man-raid content.
I really want to see some of your transmog sets. Leave us some links to your armory pages. Who knows, I might come up with something nice for my favorites.
It’s past my bedtime,
OldManSy
