Ecinsgirl @ Ner'zhul might be a death knight, but that doesn't stop her from dreaming big in all the different armor types out there!
She must have linked me about two dozen different sets that she has saved on her MogIt preview window, but these were some of her favorites. Or at least the ones she had time to take shots of and share. Either way, they are excellent examples of all that can be accomplished with a little time and a lot of imagination.
All three sets are phenomenal, though my personal favorite is the mail set. I'd love to see it on a Draenei shaman, and if my shaman ever makes it out of her current level bracket, she might just wear that very same set. Thank you for sharing all fun with everyone! :p
This is for everyone who has ever played the original adventure game Final Fantasy, or even the latest MMORPG. These little 8-bit guys are dripping with nostalgia, and countless hours of my time was spent leveling them, mastering their abilities and pressing the select key 99 times while on the boat to load the little slide puzzle hidden in the game. Looking back, I have to say that Final Fantasy was my first adventure game based on the pen-and-paper role-playing fantasy style. I hope you enjoy this tribute to that innocent time where killing hoards of imps right outside of town was commonplace. :p
The 8-bit images are from Blog-o-Bacon's "Which Final Fantasy Character are You?"
The Red Mage: Mixed duty caster, with some healing spells, some damage spells, and decent melee ability. You could take an entire group of these swashbucklers and never, ever die. Well, maybe...
For this set, I tried to capture the essence of that mixed-role, incorporating items for priests and mages, but with the goal of being available for a mage to transmogrify into. The belt is a tricky one to get, since it is heroic only. I don't think anything in this set is class specific, at all. :p
(wowhead compare link)
The Black Mage: Offensive heavy caster, though I seem to recall that they could get some very basic healing spells. Their focus was dishing out heaping helpings of pain, which of course made them squishy as all hell. Basically, a mixture of the modern warlock and mage. I always remember this guy getting flattened, resurrected and flattened again.
For his set, I wanted him to maintain his classic shrouded face, so I went with something that matched stylistically. Interestingly, the cowl and shoulders are mage specific. If the black mage were dropped into the middle of Azeroth, this would likely be his look. Gone is the blue and orange, since going epic means going purple. :p
(wowhead compare link)
The White Mage: Healer extraordinaire, with buffing and debuffing being a specialty. Always a tad bit vulnerable, absorb shields were a great way to avoid being one-shot by various baddies. I think I had my fighter stepping up to defend her, just to avoid that very thing.
I wanted to focus on that red and white look, and maintain the light colored cowl. The gnarled staff has been replaced with something a bit more grand, and incorporates a little more blue into the set. Blue, of course, being the color of healing magic. The cloak ties in some of the minor colors of the set, and has a mender's touch to it. If you are a priest, this set would make a fitting tribute. If you are a mage, this set is available to you. The best of both worlds. :p

Beavertreat wanted to share some ideas for her warlock. The sign of any good mog addict, she is anticipating a set that will define his style long before he is actually able to wear any of it. Yes, playing alts is fun. Putting them in just the right set is a requirement.
Based around the Aboriginal Regalia (Recolor) set, the look would work well for males from other races as well, particularly a Troll looking for a primal themed Warlock set. Some of the shoulder options are exclusively for Warlocks, however the rest of the set is completely unspecific when it comes which class you would use it on.
Her post here demonstrates effectively the usefulness of MogIt. Along with building sets, it can give you a great visualization of options in variation on a theme. That is always a plus, especially for a mog addict as enthralled as Beavertreat. :p
The base set:
Legs: Barbaric Loincloth
Chest: Barbaric Cloth Vest
Gloves: Barbaric Cloth Gloves
Feet: Barbaric Cloth Boots
Wrist: Cataclysmic Gladiator's Cuffs of Accuracy
Waist: Girdle of Endemic Anger
Weapon: Engraved Gargoyle Femur
Set 1: Balespider's Mantle, Warlock only model.
Set 2: Mantle of the Locusts
Set 3: Shoulders of Ruinous Senility, 2 items with same name, totally different look. Be sure to do Heroic Naxx for this one.
Set 4: Dark Coven Shoulderpads, Warlock only in this color.
Set 5: Voidheart Mantle, Warlock only tier shoulders from Burning Crusade.
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes!
I can't begin to put into words the absolutely amazing coolness that is MogIt_Armory, brought to us by Aelo (on Twitter). I will, however, show off some of the amazing sets it breaks down for you!
I was happy to see Draynee, Honeypants, Kamalia, Kimstar, Zazzy, and many many other bloggers with their sets right up at the top. The narcissist in me was most excited about seeing my Horde baby looking pretty in her Firelord set. Aellin is a lucky little ducky, since her name is very much at the beginning of an alphabetical list.
MogIt is so feature rich, that it's usefulness cannot be overstated. Not only can you design a set you are making, but you can make anything your heart desires. There is no boundary that says you can't make something strictly for role-playing or even design something for a class you are thinking about making. They sky is the limit, and MogIt makes it possible.
Below is a a gallery of all the different races that had feature sets associated with them. Oh, would you look at that. Blood Elves are first alphabetically, too. Winning by virtue of organization! Click a picture to see them larger, and congratulations to all of you who are featured in this first release!
My sincerest thank you going out to Aelo and whomever helped bring this feature to an already amazing game changer. I hope my excitement is felt by all who see this glorious addition to the best add-on ever created. Geeking out so hard. :p
MogIt, designed by Aelobin and Lombra , is the quintessential utility for item previewing and set design. I use it. I use it, a lot. And when I am done using it, I use it some more. Sliced bread doesn't even compare to it, unless I feel like designing sets in peanut butter and jelly! No, not even then. I'll eat the bloody sandwich while using MogIt, instead. You can search virtually every item that can be used in transmogrification, and you can even ask it to show you things that cannot be used. This section is for ideas that either my friends or I have come up with, but not necessarily have the time to go and collect every piece. I don't mog as often as I talk about it, so this will allow those sets to avoid the dust bin, altogether! A little polish, a lot of flourish, and a smidgen of creativity. Viola! Sets! Paste the "(Items Used)" links into the MogIt preview pane to begin! :p
