Trial Paladin Transmog - This girl is on fiiiree!

Be aware: this transmog mainly consists of mail pieces and Paladin heirlooms. Therefore it is not wearable by max level Paladins (unless they for some reason would wear mail instead of plate). The tabard was bought for my f2p Paladin Sikvah before the 6.0.2 patch; however, it is not possible to get it at level 20 anymore.

Priest Transmog - Umbral

Sooo Blizzard gave me 7 days of free play time. I thought I'd make use of it by posting the transmog I've had on my priest Linnéa for some time now, since some pieces are from Pandaria raid finder. This is the same one as I'm wearing in my halloween post below. :) It actually looks better after the latest patch now when draenei have green eyes.

6.0.2 - New Character Models

Yay! The new patch 6.0.2 went live yesterday along with the new character models. Above are some of my f2p characters (and obviously my undead warlock isn't level 20 yet). I do think the new character models look more detailed and have much smoother motions, but at the same time I wonder: what the heck happened to my draenei's and human's faces? They look derpier than ever while female undead, trolls and orcs look awesomely intense. I might reroll as horde!


Trial Hunter transmog - Wyrmrest Scout

This is my trial / f2p hunter Shanvah with her pets Alagai and Couzi (all names are from the Demon Cycle books). I've been working on this transmog for some time now, gathering green drops from rares in Azeroth, collecting Darkmoon tickets for the heirloom shoulder and gaining honor points for the tabard. I'm quite happy with how this turned out for my level 20!

Creating a transmog for a trial / f2p character can be quite tricky. When it comes to hunters, shamans, paladins and warriors, you have to think twice about the gear you want to transmog to. Since hunters and shamans wear mail when they reach level 40, and paladins and warriors similarly wear plate, their heirloom parts are originally mail and plate respectively which automatically turn into leather (for shamans and hunters) and mail (for warriors and paladins) if you wear them on lower levels. In this particular case with my hunter, my [Champion Herod's Shoulder] is originally a mail piece which has turned into leather since my character is only level 20. And here's the tricky part: you can't transmog this gear. The game still recognizes this gear as mail if you try to apply a leather transmog to it, and it won't accept a mail piece as a transmog either since a level 20 character can't wear mail yet.

Because of this, I decided to create the whole transmog around the hunter heirloom parts! Of course, it IS possible to use the rogue heirlooms instead since they have similar stats and stay leather, making them transmoggable, but I quite like the [Champion Herod's Shoulder], so I made it the foundation for this transmog. It will look alright once I get the [Champion's Deathdealer Breastplate] (which is pink and doesn't fit with the color scheme) as well since the tabard hides it.

Edit: I like how this following guide to get the tabard was valid for like a week... It is actually no longer possible to buy Commendation Badges for justice points since they removed that currency. The Commendation badges are also removed. This means the tabard is no longer available as f2p.

The [Tabard of the Wyrmrest Accord] is quite fun to get. Once you reach 500 honor points from battlegrounds you can exchange them for 250 justice points (in Stormwind for Alliance, in Orgrimmar for Horde). Travel to Northrend by boat/zeppelin, fly to Dalaran and buy 6 Wyrmrest Commendation Badge. Using them will allow you to reach friendly status with the Wyrmrest Accord. Then jump down from Dalaran and run to Wyrmrest Temple in Dragonblight and buy the tabard from the quartermaster at the top level of the temple (there is an npc that will help you fly all the way up). This same trick will work for [Tabard of the Argent Crusade] and [Tabard of the Kirin Tor] as well.


Paladin transmog - Smokin' hot

My boyfriend just finished collecting these pieces for his transmog, which is a set I put together for him. In retrospect I realize that those boots might not be the best match for this set (they have too much blue on them!), but on the other hand I'm pretty sure that the available boots with a more red colour scheme were of a different model, and this is the model of boots I like best. Maybe they will have to do. I do love the helmet, from Ahn'Qiraj, combined with these shoulders, from Firelands.. :)

Unfortunately for all you horde paladins out there, you will have to use different chest and leg pieces if you want this transmog because these Season 15 items look different for horde characters.

This character's name is Brayan and you can take a look at his armory here.


Priest transmog - Scorched

Hey! I'm back with another transmog, which of course means I have a school paper due today... There are just so many more important things to do than studying when there's a paper to write. Such as playing WoW. And making transmogs.

The base for this priest set are the Head piece and the Shoulder piece from Firelands Normal, combined with a robe from the Botanica. It might be worth noting that the mace used in this transmog has its own glow and effectively hides the enchant effect underneath, so you don't have to worry about having an enchant that doesnt match the outfit.

Trial Druid transmog - Verdant

As I talked about in my previous post, I enjoy playing on my trial account. Here's yet another of my trial characters, Hemavan (named after a skiing resort in Sweden...) She's a troll resto druid and here are two transmogs I made for her. In my last post I talked about how it's pretty hard to get heirlooms for trial characters. This is the reason why Hemavan is wearing cloth chest and shoulders in one picture; I haven't gotten hold of the leather heirlooms yet, and the cloth chest and shoulders give better stats than any equivalent leather items. The leather set is for later, when I have all the proper gear. Many items are from horde quests, just so you know.

I promise no frogs were harmed during this shoot!

About trial accounts

A few posts down in my blog I have a so called "trial transmog". I thought I'd tell you a little about what it's like playing on a trial account. Trial accounts are, most importantly in my case, free. I currently can't afford paying the monthly fee for playing WoW, and I simply don't have time to raid since I study. When I miss WoW too much I just simply log in to my trial account and do some low level dungeons instead.

Trial accounts have the following benefits:
  • They are free
  • You can keep them for an unlimited time
  • If you have the trial account connected to an already existing battle.net account, you get access to the same mounts, heirlooms and titles

However, there are several restrictions as well, such as the following:
  • Maximum level 20, then you stop gaining experience
  • It is not possible to lock your experience gain. You will reach 20 if you keep playing
  • You can't trade or use the AH
  • You can't use addons
  • You can't use in game mail / postal service
  • You can't invite people to a group (although you can accept party requests)
  • You can only gain 10 gold, maximum
  • You can only have 100 in the primary professions and you can't learn archaeology
  • You can't visit Pandaria
  • The only battlegrounds available are Warsong Gulch and Arathi Basin - and also Alterac Valley and Eye of the Storm as of patch 6.0.2
  • The only dungeons available are the Deadmines, Ragefire Chasm, Wailing Caverns, Shadowfang Keep, Blackfathom Deeps and Stormwind Stockade
  • You can only use /say, /party and /instance chats by default. You can only /whisper to people who whispered you first or if you both are on each other's friend list
Because of these specific restrictions you can't get the best gear and enchants and you can only compete in the 20-29 PvP bracket. It is therefore necessary to try to get the best gear possible from quests and drops - some of it you have to craft yourself with your 100 profession skills, and you have to enchant and enhance everything yourself. I've spent alot of time on wowhead figuring out which gear is the best I can wear, and on MogIt trying to put together transmogs with the scarce material available.

It is possible to get heirlooms (which I have on my priest Mysfox, and my boyfriend has them on his trial shaman Ohej), but getting them is very time consuming if you are a new player. If you already have an account with high level characters you can access your old heirlooms from that account. If you're NOT using a trial account connected to a real account, you have to earn them from scratch. During Darkmoon Faire (starts first Sunday every month) you can collect Darkmoon Prize Tickets, and for about 110 of them you can get an Heirloom item. That means you might need 1-2 Darkmoon Faire weeks (2 months). You can also buy PvP Heirlooms for justice points.

This might sound like a whole lot of work for just a level 20 character, but it's part of the charm. All of my enchants and leatherworking enhancement kits are crafted by me and it's actually quite fun to know you're slowly going towards a set goal, unlike the "real" game in which new expansions are released and limits are pushed further. I enjoy not having to worry about getting full gear before the next expansion comes, when it will be worthless. It's enough for me at least :)

Hi! It's been a while. I felt like creating a hunter transmog - the legs and shoulders are hunter only - from some of the new gear in MoP. I haven't played actively for about a year and it was fun to mess around with the new tiers that I haven't seen before. Take care!
