Barlafumble, Mighty Bloodmyst Huntress

I posted a similar xmog on Barlaroo a while ago. I began doing Loremaster on Barlafumble and she picked up the same mail set while questing on Bloodmyst - so this is a "grown-up" transmog version of it. I really like how it turned out.

Head: Mask of Inner Fire (shown below)
Shoulders: Lightning-Charged Spaulders
Chest: Tunic of the Dragon Slayer
Waist: Cursed Demonchain Belt
Legs: Heavy Chain Leggings
Feet: Tsunami Boots
Gloves: Eredar Fel-Chain Gloves
Ranged: Vishanka, Jaws of the Earth

Wowhead Item Comparison.

Shiny new gun on stinky ol' Barla.

Poor Barla.. I haven't changed her transmog since my last post in February. She must be pretty smelly by now.

Sorry about that (if anyone is actually reading this - LOL).

BUT I wanted to show you my new gun! Shiny!!

The Xorothian Firestick can only be obtained if you know or can find a Warlock who has completed the Dreadsteed quest back in Vanilla. The boss can still be summoned if that lock either has the items or can buy them from Gorzeeki Wildeyes in Burning Steppes.

There is the Crystal Slugthrower which is BOE, but has been removed from the game when Cataclysm hit, and if you're very very very very very very very lucky, you might find it in the AH.

The only other unique item that this boss drops is a shield - the Dreadguard's Protector.

Finally! A decent mog for Pauldrons of Primal Fury!

So I've had the shoulders for a while, but didn't manage to get the complete "set" from Zul'Aman before it was changed. Well.. not totally true thanks to Legion! I have the other pieces on a Horde hunter - so YAY!!

Anyway, I've never been able to find a suitable set or even pieces that looked decent with the Pauldrons of Primal Fury until I took a closer look at the Rancorbite set I picked up in Draenor. It almost feels like cheating, using an entire set and calling it mogging, but there it is.

Don't get me wrong, I love mogging entire sets, but I usually enjoy making mogs of different pieces and not sets.

Okay, I'll stop talking and grab some more coffee... Here's Barla:

Shoulders: Pauldrons of Primal Fury
Chest: Rancorbite Chain Shirt
Gloves: Rancorbite Grips
Waist: Crystal-Buckle Belt
Legs: Rancorbite Leggings
Feet: Tsunami Boots
Bow: Stoneshatter (Because big dps from a tiny bow is the AWESOMESAUCE)

Legion Transmog - Armor Proficiency

A recent tweet from the Devs stated that in order to unlock an appearance there are three rules that must be met:

1) The item must be bound to you,
2) You must be able to equip the item, and
3) The armor type must be specific to your class.

This means that Warriors won't be the perfect xmog farmers. While right now they can equip all the armor types, when Legion comes out they will only be able to equip plate starting from level 1.

That would have been awesome, since my Warrior just sits in her garrison doing nothing, but I'm ok with it - I love love love farming xmog. Yep, I'm weird - I'm surprised you didn't already know that.

BUT I have a few concerns.

An example is the Scarlet Mail set that I have on two toons; a hunter and a paladin.  When Legion hits, this mail set will turn into plate. Sadly, I am missing the boots on the paladin so this means that I won't have unlocked the boots since the hunter won't be able to equip it after Legion.

  • I wonder what would happen if I equip it before Legion hits and leave it on her.. will it be "learned"??  
  • Maybe we can talk Blizz into make the boots BOE again so I can move them to the paladin?? They are no longer available in game, and as far as I can see there are no look-alike versions.
  • Do you think that Blizz will/could grandfather anything soulbound to the toons on the day that Legion hits? That would be nice for my RP toons who have some cute cloth armor that is no longer available in the game, but are on mail/plate toons.

Legion Transmog - Flames of Ragnaros

The Flames of Ragnaros that I got ON MY HUNTER WHO CAN'T USE IT during the anniversary event will become account will become account wide xmog in Legion.

Barlaroo AKA Be Pickier When Choosing Starter Zone Rewards!!

When questing on Bloodmyst Isle with my banker alt, a Shaman, I chose the mail quest rewards even though she couldn't wear them until she dinged 40. She was in heirlooms, anyway, and I wouldn't be using most of the rewards, so saving them for future transmog seemed like a good idea. I haven't checked out the other starter zones yet, but I did know from leveling quite a few Draenei that there were some unique looks in their starter zones. This is a nice unique Mail set and you don't see this often as most people who choose mail that early-on switch to plate later and don't keep it.

Last weekend, I was being anti-social in the guild (I just needed some ME time) and decided to just farm some old dungeons and drag Barlaroo along and get her to 40.

I do miss her usual banker outfit, but I like her new look!

Not bad for starter zone items, no?

Shoulders: Haunted Pauldrons
Chest: Tunic of the Dragon Slayer
Waist: Warpwood Binding
Legs: Heavy Chain Leggings
Gloves: Protective Field Gloves
Main Hand: Old Elekk Prod
Off Hand: Wheel of the Lost Hope

Wowhead Link.

Ok, so the Shoulders aren't from Bloodmyst, and there are BOE versions, but the tiny quest line in the wetlands was worth doing for them. They're the best match I have found so far.
