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.
