Survival Transmog

It's time to begin the new year right with a new transmog contest and JD from Amature Azerothian has just the thing with his Amazing Transmog Survivor Challenge. Since we're allowed to post our entries except for the very last challenge if your still in the competition I present to you my entry.

Har'oka Shaman!

I'm really happy with him. He looks like one troll who'd kick Nass and take Manes. Oh, wait, that's Ebon Blade not Har'oka. I really wanted to make a troll since I felt it'd be more likely for a Har'oka disciple to be a troll since she is a Loa spirit, god, whatever. I decided to make a set in cloth, leather, mail, and plate and choose the one I liked best. I really wanted to remember the theme this time while choosing which outfit to submit. This is the one I thought worked best. Although... it looks cool but I don't think it'd be easy to track down.

He's wearing:
Windfury Harness, Ghost Iron Staff, Vicious Gladiator's Ringmail Leggings, Lifecycle Waistguard, Banded Chain Gloves, and Malevolent Gladiator's Mail Spaulders

I also decided to show my rejected looks. They still look pretty neat I just didn't feel they fit the theme quite as well as the shaman set did.

Har'oka Warlock!
My original thought was that Har'oka's disciples had turned on her and so they should have a bit of an evil vibe. Plus I really love those robes. They have this glow to them that reminded me of Har'oka but they just aren't quite the right color. And you really can't get around him being evil. And a warlock. Warlock's just don't seem like the type to worship anything but power.

He's wearing:
Robes of the Umbral Brute, Inscribed Tiger Staff, Tooth-marked Girdle, Gloves of Creation, Bad Mojo Mask, and Dreadful Gladiator's Felweave Amice

Druid First Attempt
I made two attempts at a leather outfit because I really didn't like this one as well as the other outfits I put together. It didn't come together quite as well as I'd hoped but I like how well the colors of the shoulders and pants works together. Ah well.

He's wearing:
White Leather Jerkin, Inscribed Tiger Staff, Leggings of the Awakening, Gatekeeper Threads, Belt of Pale Thorns, Ghostwalker Gloves, Big Voodoo Mask, Branches of the Cycle

Druid 2
I liked this attempt better and while I like the color of the kilt it doesn't feel like it's primitive Voodoo. But I'm pretty happy with the top half.

He's wearing:
Trickster's Vest, Ghost Iron Staff, Kurenai Kilt, Dreadful Gladiator's Waistband of Cruelty, Greyshadow Gloves, Landlubber Headband, Vengeful Gladiator's Dragonhide Spaulders

Har'oka Warrior
I love how this set looks although by the time I was looking for weapons I realized this set wouldn't be what I was submitting so I just threw on a random mace. I was surprised to realize that none of these pieces are part of the same set since they came together so well. It's a nice warrior look but it doesn't say "Worshipper of a Cat God."

He's wearing :
Parcel Bearer's Breastplate, Gao's Keg Tapper, Voice of Reason, Relentless Gladiator's Plate Legguards, Redsteel Boots, Patroller's Girdle of Endless Spring, Gauntlets of Battle Command, Helm of Serendipity, Cataclymisc Gladiator's Plate Shoulderguards


  1. I like them all but the Shaman is my favorite too. No one would mess with that gentleman lol!

    1. Thanks! I was pretty happy with how they've turned out and was really glad I had a place to share my other attempts. Good luck with your entry.

  2. Aye, the Shaman is my favorite of the set, too. He looks *awesome*, and very appropriate for a worshipper of the Great Snow Leopardess.

  3. Three times a lady.... I mean Shaman. I'd have to agree with the other two ladies. The (2nd attempt) Druid would be my second choice though.
