We're going to take a break from the tumult of Mists of Pandaria beta news and give some attention to one of the most popular end-of-expansion doldrums activities: preparing the new badass look that you'll be wearing into pandaland.
Transmogrification has become an immensely popular subject in WoW. WoW Insider has a transmog resource list for general transmogrification information, and Tabana has a far more hunter-specific and extensive hunter transmogrification resources compilation over at the WHH that collects all the hunter transmog info from across the web.
Today, we're going to take a look at some of the awesome transmog looks that hunters have put together, complete with where to get the gear you need to grab the look for yourself.
Dreamy over at Drunkard's Regalia has put together this awesome steampunk-themed hunter set, appropriately modeled on an undead hunter.
The gear used for this set includes:
- Truesight Ice Blinders (engineering-only)
- Sparkleshell Shoulder Pads
- Mail Combat Armor
- Mighty Chain Pants (sold from an NPC)
- Myrmidon's Greaves
- Imbued Infantry Gauntlets
- Grizzly Glaive
- Sandstorm Cloak
- Telaari Hunting Girdle
- Giant's Bane
Dwarven frost hunter
- Surestrike Goggles v2.0
- Merciless Gladiator's Chain Spaulders
- Merciless Gladiator's Chain Gauntlets
- Veteran's Chain Girdle
- Merciless Gladiator's Chain Leggings
- Veteran's Chain Sabatons
- Frostscythe of Lord Ahune
- Prison Warden's Shotgun
Dark ranger look
Sesamee over at Shooting Azeroth put together this dark ranger look, which is of course most appropriate for female elf types. If you ever wanted to look like a brooding but not-yet-undead Sylvanas, this is the look that should make all your dreams possible.
You can put together this look for your own dark ranger using the following gear:
- Hateful Gladiator's Chain Helm
- Spiked Chain Shoulder Pads
- Double Link Tunic
- Heroic Dreadfire Drape
- Frostscale Gloves
- Njord Belt
- Bloodmail Legguards
- Njord Boots
This one also comes from Shooting Azeroth, and though it isn't a homemade unique look, Sesameee does such a phenomenal job with her screenshots that I had to highlight at least one more. She also goes out of her way to find just the right pet to match each transmogrification look.
Ironhide for the Horde
Never let it be said that I ignore my dirty and smelly Horde hunter brethren. I started this transmog inspiration gallery with a Horde character, and so too will we end it with one of the ugly races (i.e., not dwarf).
Bauxite over at Aspect of the Dork was designed to be the ideal for the Horde set, a variant on the Ironhide set, composed mostly of green BoE drops.
You can make your own Horde hunter set with the following items:
- Slayer's Skullcap
- Drakesfire Epaulets
- Shawl of the Shattered Giant
- Ironhide Breastplate
- Ebon Filigreed Shirt
- Ironhide Bracers
- Ironhide Gauntlets
- Ironhide Belt
- Ironhide Legguards
- Ironhide Greaves
- Terokk's Quill or Tidebreaker Trident
- Hellscream's Reach Tabard
And as always, when an orc walks in the room, the party's over. Do you guys have any of your own awesome hunter transmogs? If so, link 'em in the comments!
