Minipost: The ugliest little DK in the world

My guildmate Aldous (who just started his own WoW blog, Boozekin!) called for everyone's attention the other night to announce that his Transmogrification outfit was nearing completion. We all gathered up in the T-Spot (the Tauren area in Orgrimmar, aka the Best Area) to see what he had come up with. We weren't disappointed.


(I actually helped him complete the look by getting him the horrible vest and cloak.)

This got us talking to how awesome and horrifying it would be if our raid team ALL created horrendous transmog sets, and actually raided in them. Kill shots would be amazing!

I've been running a lot of old dungeons lately to build up a collection of plate pieces for transmog purposes, so I decided to see what I could whip up on the spot to match Aldous in terms of sheer visual vomit. These were all armor pieces that I actually already had, stashed in my bank. Be afraid.



The scary part about this is that, much like Aldous' set, it's all appropriate armor. So in my case, this entire set is actual plate. I COULD KILL DEATHWING WEARING THIS.

Helm: Ruby Helm of the Just
Shoulder: Fanblade Pauldrons
Cloak: Recovered Scarlet Onslaught Cape
Chest: Warrior's Embrace
Hands: Gauntlets of Cruel Intention
Waist: Jumbotron Power Belt
Legs: Vanquisher's Legplates
Feet: Sha'tari Wrought Greaves
Main Hand: Melia's Magnificent Scepter
Off Hand: Blade of Savagery

    That makes me wonder now just how many people are going to make intentionally ugly sets. I'm scared!
