My last post on transmogrification of cloth proved popular. So much so that it seemed that the Pig & Whistle filled up with players in alluring cloth gear. I thought my other Mage had achieved a decent look, but one player caught my eye with a plunging bodice of a chest piece that was both stylish and elegant. Even Stephen Ryback (npc cooking trainer) thought she looked in good elf!
A first glance or two you may think that this look would be difficult to achieve, but the transmog is deceptively simple and probably cost the player next to nothing with the bulk of the look made up of items of Crimson Silk. But the center piece of the look is the bodice (chest) which is in fact transmogrified into Robe of Evocation. Clearly, a look worthy of a Blood Elf.
For those that want to achieve the same look, here are the main pieces of the set:
Boots transmogrified to Silk Iceshard Boots
Legs transmogrified to Buccaneer’s Pants
Chest transmogrified to Robe of Evocation
Head transmogrified to Circle of Flame
Shoulder transmogrified to Crimson Silk Shoulders
Hands transmogrified to Crimson Silk Gloves
Belt transmogrified to Crimson Silk Belt
Back Nanoprecise Cape (unchanged)
Obtaining the Main Transmog Look
As I mentioned above, most of the pieces are easily obtain via Tailoring patterns of Crimson Silk items. The center piece – Robe of Evocation – is a low level drop from Ragefire Chasm and should be easy to obtain.
A Blood Elf in Stormwind!
Now, it’s not often that a Blood Elf is bold enough to stroll into the Pig and Whistle, even looking this good. So it wasn’t long before the fireballs started to kindle and swords were unsheathed. But then little did we know that beneath all that transmogrification lurked a level 85 kitted out in mostly heroic gear that would make even Stephen Ryback run back to the kitchens.
For further tips on making gold with transmogrification then make sure you read:
I was hanging out in the Stormwind Auction House this week when this Mage walked in. I recognized the player because she constantly undercuts me across many of my markets!
As always she was impeccably kitted out in cloth – as befits a Mage – but had cleverly transmogrified her gear to create a unique look. It got me to thinking about the ways some players make use of cloth in transmogrification.
Now, most of the players I’ve tweeted about transmogrification tell me that it can be hard to make gold from flipping this type of gear. I’ve had some success, but only on selected items. When looking for transmog gear to flip it’s best to get inspiration from other players – as in this case.
In the example shown the Mage was wearing the following gear:
Boots – transmogrified to Red Woolen Boots
Legs – transmogrified to Cindercloth Pants
Chest – transmogrified to Corsair’s Overshirt
Head – transmogrified to White Bandit Mask
Shoulder – transmogrified to Primal Mooncloth Shoulders
Hands – Mnimiopsis Gloves (unchanged)
Waist – Beauty’s Silken Ribbon (unchanged)
This style should give you some ideas of the type of gear some players are looking for when it comes to Transmog Cloth. Many of these items are easily obtained from scans of the Auction House or crafted by canny Tailors with the right patterns. Here are a few examples:
Red Woolen Boots
Tailors can craft this at experience of 95 if they have the pattern which is commonly fished or dropped in the lower levels.
These can also be crafted by Tailors from a pattern at experience level 280 and dropped from mobs of the Burning Steppes. For those that don’t have the pattern then the transmog set Mageweave Regalia should provide you with the right look.
