Are bright Colours in fashion?

Now, this is something I originally started to put together to fit for the Revilgaz’s Cutlass I got some time ago, since I really want to have a matching and good-looking Set to wear together with it. In the end it turned out that there was an even better choice for a weapon though, so I replaced it and failed in my original intention – but am still pretty happy with the results. Who doesn’t like nice surprises?

But anyway, this is my Noble Duelist Set!

I know, gnomes aren’t exactly the stereotypes of either a noble or a duelist, but this is what I got and it looks pretty good on her. The theme probably fits better on a human for roleplay uses, but since I just want to look good sometimes and don’t necessarily pick my outfits role appropriate only (sitting around in the Auction House or Mailbox area doesn’t exactly fit in with good roleplaying behaviour anyway, so why not look fabulous while doing so, at least?).

Goldweave Tunic: Same model as the Elegant Tunic that’s for a lot of money on the Auction House regularly, but can be obtained by doing an easy Quest on the Hellfire Peninsula (available for Alliance and Horde). One of my favourites in the cloth chest armor department, together with the differently coloured look-alikes!

Yellow Martial Shirt: I think I might be starting to repeat myself a lot here.. the Martial Shirts are simply awesome for adding another layer in a fitting colour and making everything look more complete.

Gnomish Casting Boots: These pretty unique boots match perfectly to the chest, but that’s no wonder since they’re apparently a part of the recoloured mageweave regalia, so not really a surprise here. Another Quest reward, this time in the Blade’s Edge Mountains.

Sutarn’s Ring: I’m not all too happy with this belt because the colour doesn’t match 100%, but so far I couldn’t find anything that fits perfectly, so since I had this one already I’m keeping it like this. Can be replaced with something like the Astralaan Belt for example, or with anything that fits the yellow tones better if found. Otherwise, the best bet to find it is probably once again the Auction House – at least that’s where I got it from.

Astralaan Gloves & Pants: Same as for the Battlemage Outfit before, the Astralaan Stuff is just great for completing Sets because black and white are easy to match to pretty much anything and look good on their own.

Aurora Mantle: I believe the Aurora items are fairly common because they look good and match a lot of different stuff, so it shouldn’t be too hard to get some of it through the AH for anyone who is willing to spill some gold, or even get some drop luck while levelling a new character up. That’s where I get a surprising amount of good looking low-level items! And somebody who doesn’t need them should be able to sell them for a good amount of money.. Anyway, these work well with he white of the Astralaan items and isn’t as huge and overwhelming as most shoulder armor looks on gnomes, eventually there are some other great fitting ones for other races.

Jeweler’s Amber Monocle: I found these monocles in the AH and fell in love with them, so of course there was no way around buying one! Especially awesome because the colour fits greatly, once again. πŸ˜€ The only big downside of it is that it’s not working for transmog, but there are good alternatives, like the Chief Architects Monocle or Cassandra’s Grace.

Electrocutioner Leg: The colour of this Sword matches really well with the overall look, that’s why I went to Gnomeregan a few times and dumped Revilgaz’s Cutlass in favour of it in the end. Both still work pretty well in general though. The leg is probably easier to get anyway, because there’s just a little drop luck needed, while the other one only is available for finishing various quests.

Alternative Weapons: For Transmogrification it’s likely that other weapon types are needed, so some different ones I found fitting are the Spiritchaser Staff,Β  Solstice Staff, or a Key to the Planes for Staves – as well as a Siphoning Dagger, Honed Stiletto, The Ziggler or Alcor’s Sunrazor together with an Arcane Star, Regal Star, Demon-Skull Orb, Dreamseeker Dandelion or an Inscribed Red Fan. Though for this one, the possibilities are pretty much endless, there are a lot of yellow coloured or fiery themed items that would match well. Even a Disciple’s Stein is yellow-ish.^^

And that’s about it! Nothing really special or rare, but it really does stand out for some reason when I’m idling around dealing with every day stuff in Azeroth. I’m not really sure why – maybe I’m completely wrong with the colours after all and everyone can clearly see that I’m an unfaishonable person! Oh, the Horror! D:

Either way, it’s an unusual look and not hard to obtain, and even though I’m not using it for roleplay purposes (so far), it surely did come in handy a while ago – at least I felt dressed properly while dealing with Stormwinds Royalty. πŸ™‚

What to do with Revilgaz’s Cutlass..

Since I saw someone in Stormwind wearing this amazing shiny sword, I decided that I needed to have it, even though it’s not really of any use on my mage (but I’m pretty sure I’ll go through the effort to get it on other characters, too!).

After finding out what quests I had to do to get through the chain – apparently the two tasks “Sea Wolf” MacKinley has to give need to be finished so you can start with The Bloodsail Buccaneers from First Mate Crazz – I headed out to do the deed, and after a rather long while I finally put my hands on this new weapon that’s probably one of my favourites from now on.^^

Now I only need to find a good matching set that works well with it, which means either a Pirate or Stormwind Army Sailor themed one.. and I don’t want to simply go for the Buccaneer’s Look, which is nice enough and better than nothing, but I would like to have something more unusual and maybe complicated.

A good start could be the Admiral’s Hat or the First Mate Hat.. Hmmm.

Either way, for now I’m happy about finding and getting Revilgaz’s Cutlass, everything else will come on its own in time! πŸ™‚

Sometimes I want to be a witch

It’s nice to have a fitting themed outfit if you want to play something like a mage, slowly getting corrupted by the arcane powers, or simply a warlock (though no one really needs a reason for wanting to look good – Teribeth is neither of the two). But black is a highly overused stereotype for both the good and the bad guys, so why not go with some colour instead?

To be exact, mostly purple and some green for the Dark Sorcerer set:

Also the first one completely ready for transmogrification, since it’s covering all visible armor slots (besides the bracers – not really visible in this^^) and all are of at least green quality.

(On a side note – that picture was taken under the Raven Hill Cemetery in Duskwood; the monstrosities head still/already moves it’s eyes!)

Skywitch Hat: Everything started with this! It’s a reward from a quest in Terokkar Forest, and I kept it stored away because I knew I wanted to do something with it later, and for this it’s perfect. There are also lots of differently coloured versions of this item available for other themes.^^

Chillwind Tunic: Another item I got from a quest, this time in the Western Plaguelands. I loved it because of the unique look and the unusual colour combination, the gem in the middle reminded me of the Jeweled Onyx Panther, so I luckily decided to keep it as well.

Shadoweave Pants: Again the easy tailor fill-in, and it looks better than anything I could find on the auction house when I was looking. Sometimes the cheaper and easier solutions really are the better ones. πŸ™‚

Shoulderwraps of the Enthralled: Surprise, another quest reward! Again from the Western Plaguelands, but this time it’s not as unique. I already had them and thought they fit very well with the overall look, especially with the cloak, but there are other, completely different shoulders that can replace these, like the Shadoweave Shoulders (my favourite alternative), Regal Mantle, Resplendent Epaulets or the Felcloth Shoulders.

Dusk-Stained Cloak: This one is obtainable rather early in the Blackfathom deeps, but for characters who already did the quest and chose a different reward it’s impossible to obtain. I guess the cloak can simply get left out or maybe replaced with another one that fits the outfit model and colour wise, but I’ll have to take a look into this first.

Elder’s Gloves & Elder’s Boots: Wowhead states that the Gloves aren’t available in the game anymore, but comments say the opposite – they can drop from Humanoids or other rare mobs in the level range of 25-33, but I simply bought them in the auction house for not that much money, and chose them for the same reason I mentioned in the post about the Battlemage outfit before.^^

Cilice of Suffering: The second quest reward from Terokkar Forest in this set, but the reason it fits so well is that it shares the same look with the Elder’s sash, and that works well with the gloves and boots obviously.

Whelp Keepers Staff: This one goes perfectly with the chest armor because of the gem, so I picked it for the set after looking through many other options, it was simply the best looking in my eyes. It’s from yet another quest, this time in the Burning Steppes, but shares the same model with lots of other stavesΒ (there are many versions in green) and can be replaced easily.

Since the cloak isn’t visible in the first screenshot, here’s another one from the back:

Basically all I have to say in the end is: keep your quest rewards! My bank and inventory are totally cluttered with different items because of this since there’s always a chance that it’s the only one of that kind I can ever get, but sometimes it’s just worth it. And of course that means it’s also harder for other people to copy your stuff, if they don’t want to start from the beginning with a completely new character and already did the quests but got rid of it later or chose something else in the first place it’s impossible unless there are exact look-alike items. πŸ˜€
