Every week, WoW Insider brings you Shifting Perspectives for cat, bear, restoration and balance druids. This Tuesday, hunter polearms are tossed into the trash bin and are then very quickly retrieved.
As many of you know, transmogrification -- from the ancient Greek trans
, meaning "To make one's gear look better," and mogrification
, meaning "Than it actually is" -- is coming to the game
in patch 4.3
. As such, we are joined again by Letitia, the official fashion consultant and Snark Passenger
to the Shifting Perspectives column. Some of you may already know her from Shifting Perspectives: Fun with race choice
, in which we pronounced one particular human model a perfect in-game example of Stalinist realism, and Shifting Perspectives: The druid of 2010
, in which Allison was scraped off a bus station bathroom floor in order to write the article.
In the interests of not seeing a flood of druids run around in uncoordinated ensembles, we have assembled a set of suggestions you may wish to review. They were compiled and ranked according to the scientific rationale of not wanting to flinch whenever I shifted out of form. Our priorities are the helm, shoulder, cloak, and chest slots -- the ones that really define an outfit -- and I'll revisit the series on some future date, or whenever I can get Letitia away from her chosen career of throwing garbage at Los Angeles stylists.
Oh, and as an important aside -- Anne's World of Wardrobe series
has a lot of good tips for anyone looking to put together a complete tier set. Reddit's WoW Transmogrification subreddit
also has a lot of good tips, as do Wowhead's blogs on unique items
and NPC sets to copy
. The Visual Roleplay Gear List
is also an incredibly addictive site, though not all of the sets it features will be possible to use for "mogging."
