Transmog Thursday: Xmog Sets by Spec

Wouldn’t it be great if you could automatically change your characters look each time you switch specs?


Open the transmog window, notice there’s an arrow at the bottom (to the left side of the Apply button). Click that and you’ll see the option [Apply to: All specializations] AND [Apply to: Current specialization only]. You have to pay the regular transmog fee’s when setting this up (for each spec) and again if you make any changes to your gear. But once you set it up, your appearance will automatically change when your spec does, and at no additional cost.

VIDEO: A quick guide on how to save transmog sets that change automatically based on your talent specialization.

Happy Transmogrifying!!

Transmog Thursday: Are You Ready for the Trial of Style?

Trial of Style is a micro-holiday scenario coming in Patch 7.2.5, where six players are competing in a fashion competition for Mog Week Tokens.

Trial of Style WoW Transmog Competition!

Dust off those pauldrons and compete in a fashion competition of Azerothian proportions! Speak to a transmogrifier NPC in any major city to participate in the Trial of Style!

Trial of Style is a newly-added micro-holiday scenario, happening inside the first boss room in Magisters’ Terrace. Players are given a mog theme and have a set time limit (two and a half minutes), in which they use transmogrifiers to dress up accordingly. They can even use the barber chair to change faces, hairstyle, hair color and piercings. During this time, you won’t see the appearance of other players, they all will be wearing the same clothes.

After the time is up, you’ll be casting your votes.

  • During voting, you can switch between the two contestants and cast your vote.
  • When on stage, you can wave and dance to earn those votes!

At the end, winners are announced and you’ll receive

The rewards contain Mog Week Tokens that can be exchanged for transmoggable gear in Dalaran.

The possible themes are currently Summer Styles, Winter Wear, Ready for Battle, Fun and Flirty, Mismatched Mayhem, Fire and Ice, Dark and Deadly, Faction Pride, Primal Style, Heroes of Azeroth, Make Me Laugh,Tabard Time, Everyday Heroes, Epic Purple, Champions of the Light and Freestyle! But these themes we’re on the PTR so they are subject to change once the event goes live.

If you’re farming mog ahead of time I recommend the Monar’s Wardrobe Helper addon to help you track appearances that you need from each instance. And if you need some inspiration, check out Transmogrification Reddit, MogMyGear, or WoW Roleplay Gear.

Transmog Thursday: Trial of Valor Raid Sets

Patch 7.1 is old news yes, but did you know it brought us four (x4) new xmog sets from the raid, Trial of Valor? Now I don’t know about you but I want them all!

In return for collecting 1000 Valarjar Soul Fragments the quest Trial of Valor: The Lost Army rewards players one tint of the transmog set “Chosen Dead”. So do be sure to complete that quest on each of the four armor types. And if you we’re wondering, you can complete this quest on ANY difficulty and you’ll still receive the normal tint as the reward.

Each armor type has it’s own tint for each raid difficulty:

For the most part these set’s are collected by getting an ensemble to drop off bosses, and sadly they aren’t guaranteed so be prepared to run the different difficulties multiple times in order to collect them all. ALL BUT ONE of course, because I already mentioned above that completing the quest will reward you with the normal difficulty coloration.

Each set covers you head to toe and includes a cloak so you will collect NINE pieces in total per set. AND while I personally can not confirm it, rumor is that you can get lucky enough to get an ensemble from a Bonus Roll.

IF that’s happened to you please leave a comment and let us know.

So just what do these “Chosen Dead” transmog set’s look like?

I tried to find some decent images to show you all the sets and these images by we’re the best I could find that showed all the tints.

#50shadesofwarcraft Day Thirty-Five: Maroon

Posting day 35 of the #50shadesofwarcraft bloggers challenge. Are you up to the challenge?

Thinking about maroon didn’t really set off any bells as far as zones to go screenshot. But then I remembered the druid T16 from Siege of Orgrimmar.


Armor of the Shattered Vale with the Windflame Girdle, Torall, Rod of the Shattered Throne, and Orb of Arcing Lightning.

#50shadesofwarcraft Day Twelve: Bubble Gum

Posting day 12 of the #50shadesofwarcraft bloggers challenge. Are you up to the challenge?

I do love collecting tier sets even though I don’t always xmog all of them. Like everyone I have my favorites and one of those is the  Nightsong set. There are two versions, well three if you count the orange recolor version. The first is yellow/green and the second is W A I T for it ……


mauve with shades of pink BUBBLE GUM. I don’t transmog this set much, but for the occasion Day 12 oh yah! I’m finishing it off with the cagebreaker’s hide belt & staff of the skymagi.

Thursday’s Transmog: Nightwatcher

Tunic of the Nightwatcher

[3D View] I’ve seen several variations of this transmog but my favorite always includes these blue feather shoulders which have a nice animation. However unless you know enough peeps to run Blackwing Decent or Bastion of Twilight these might be hard to come by. Luckily I’ve fallen in with a weekly group via OpenRaid and happy HAPPY I’ve finally got these shoulders to complete this look.

Alternative items might include Hide of ChromaggusDruidic Helmet of Second Sight, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Belt of CrueltyMoonrage Girdle, Orange Martial ShirtBelt of the Crescent MoonSouthshore SneakersWaistguard of the Great BeastRavenwing PauldronsRaven-Heart HeaddressFading Violet SandalsTreads of Hideous Transformation, Cover of the Keepers, and/or Starlight Gauntlets. For matching cloaks you might want to look at Asimov’s Drape or Volde’s Cloak of the Night Sky.
