Greetings my fellow transmogrification addicts!
The land of the living appears to still be here, so I've ventured forth once again. I have several submissions I want to share, and of course, have a backlog to get posted. But just when things seems quiet, something big happened...
I have been looking forward to this since I had a taste of greatness at BlizzCon. The act of checking my Battle.net launcher once every time I have a break to see if I got an invite has worn out my mouse. I should grab a new one before playing, I suppose.
So, just to be clear, I haven't forsaken my addiction, I'm just adding a new one. I'll have some fresh posts up, soon. Also, all the new Legion transmogrification goodness highlights, as well.
Until then, stay classy, and MOG ALL THE THINGS!
(Did I mention Overwatch will have outfits? *tehe* :p)
Greetings my fellow transmogrification addicts!
I'm currently in the process of working with The Rodcast on his next video with Legion themed sets! The demon hunter concept was scrapped, but a more general Legion themed concept is in the works. Stay tuned to see the sets Rod came up with, and ones that I have contributed. I have only finished the cloth set, so far, but hope to get the other 3 armor classes done before he is ready to publish. Until then, MOG ALL THE THINGS! :p
Now that the dust has settled with Blizzard's new World of Warcraft: Legion expansion announcement, the time has come to ask, "Yes, but can I mog it?"
The upcoming expansion has a lot to offer with changes to both PvE (Player versus Environment) and PvP (Player versus Player) content, but arguably the most exciting aspect is introduction of the long-demanded hero class: Demon Hunters. As such, the mogging potential for leather wearing classes is going to jump considerably. Demon Hunters will the forth class capable of transmogrification into leather, following rogues, druids, and monks. Expect to see many mask varieties for those who have given up their sight for unimaginable power.
Following the theme of Illidan Stormrage's outfits, I'm expecting to see a significant rise in the number of chest options that are either minimalist or allow for the character to be completely topless. From the preview, it seems that that male characters can show of their fancy tattoos completely. Female characters seem to get brassiere options to match their sets, for the chest-less option. Typically, developers have made class sets available to other classes via off-set pieces, so there is hope for other classes to inherit some of the Demon Hunter styles.
While options for leather armor are going up, we will have to wait to see what is in store for the other classes. Personally, I'm hoping to see thematically appropriate set options for everyone. We already have plenty of Fel-themed sets for nearly all armor types, so bringing Demon Hunter flavor to the other classes would be a great addition. I'd love a plate helm that is a a bulky visor-only option, or perhaps even a cloth or chain veil to hide the eyes. As we get closer to a release date, and Blizzcon 2015, we should start seeing previews of standard tier and set designs trickling out of Blizzard.
However, why wait?
Rodrigo de Oliveira, host of The Rodcast, has made an exceptional preview for the new class (below). To further the excitement, he is currently working on Demon Hunter themed sets for all four armor classes! He has asked me to join in the fray and come up with sets of my own that follow the same path.
I am, of course, leaping on this opportunity to make a set for each, and contribute to his upcoming video. I'm looking forward to participating, and Aellin already has a set that I think works with the theme. So, plate down, three more to go! I'll share what I come up with here, on Twitter, and hope that they are sufficiently horned and/or Fel enough for everyone! :p
Update: Upon re-tallying, and some minor drama llama fun, Aellin got 2nd place! Heck, I didn't even know she was in the RUNNING! :p
OpenRaid has announced their winners of their 3rd Annual Transmogrification Contest! A lot of great sets, which likely made judging this competition all the harder. My screenshots were somewhat bland, since I was trying to show the sets more than an action. Arithan's set made it to the finalists list, while Aellin's set got second place! (Originally, I thought it fell a bit short.) I had thought her set resembled the current paladin tier just a wee bit too much, but her variation on the set impressed someone (hugs and thank you so MUCH!). All in all, great fun, and even being considered is worthy of a bit of pride.
MOG ALL THE THINGS! :p
Umlaut Paradots has been running around Ner'zhul since he stood in the freezing cold at Fry's Electronics back at the initial release. He enjoys being the defender, especially of those just starting out in WoW. :p
