Transmog: Collidus' various eyepatches


Not my favorite look. I mean, how can the ladies tell when I'm winking at them?
(PS: The answer is always.)

Everyone loves unusual eye-based helms like monacles, goggles or eyepatches. Engineers, of course, have their ensemble of cool-looking goggles, but for those non-engineers out there, the selection of transmoggable eyewear is a little more limited. Some armor types have a few glasses/goggle/patch options, but some - like plate - are pretty hurting.

In fact, there is only ONE plate eyepatch in the game, the Crimson Beholder Eye. It drops from a Burning Crusade level 68 rare spawn, Collidus the Warp-Watcher, who spawns in Shadowmoon Valley.


Collidus' spawn locations.


What's interesting about Collidus is that he only has four drops, each of which is an eyepatch of a different armor type and a random enchantment. They also all look different. So you can head out and kill Collidus (assuming you can find him) and you'll get an eyepatch - it just might not be the right armor type for you to actually use.

Still, they're Bind-on-Equip, so even if it's not the one you want, chances are you can find someone who'd be happy to transmog it. Besides - only plate eyepatch in existence! I MUST HAVE IT.

Here's what the different eyepatches look like. (And thoughts from Fabulor!)

Cloth
Amethyst Beholder Eye

A garish combination. Amethyst and silver? Still, a decent choice if the rest of your outfit matches. Coordination is key.

Leather
Emerald Beholder Eye

What a marvelous color! The lustrous green goes perfectly with my dazzling eyes. Fabulor approves.

Mail
Fiery Beholder Eye

Fiery LIKE MY HEART.

Plate
Crimson Beholder Eye

A regal gold and purple combination, suitable for royalty such as myself. Not that you'd know anything about that.

Peon.

    "Well, hello there, hot stuff!" says my redheaded BE Mage. How long has Fabulor been a redhead? I quite agree that the green version suits him best ;)

    @Cymre - Me too! Haven't had any luck so far. Alas!

    @Kam - Fabulor is currently in DARK FABULOR mode! Haha. I couldn't find anything to go well with his blonde hair for transmogging, so I went back to the red/black scheme I used for a short time while leveling. :)

    Best leather eye patch in existence. There is no competition.

    @Nivella, there's a mail one that looks just the same ( there's 8 other leather models but just the one mail one ) called Malefactor's Eyepatch. A questchain in Blade's Edge Mountains.
