Good news, bad news.

So, as folks have probably noticed, I don’t play World of Warcraft all that much anymore. This website has languished for an entire expansion or more, and I’m not sure that even my best intentions will revive it.

I’ll tell you, though. I’m loving those playable Nightborne, so there’s hope for this website yet.

In the interim, unfortunately heavy traffic (I’m guessing from folks direct-linking to images) is adversely affecting the site’s usability so I’m taking down the screen captures of each set by race. Links to each set on Wowhead remain intact so you can generate your own preview using your race of choice over there.

Unintended hiatuses are the best kind, right?

Okay, I admit it, I’ve been a very, very bad girl. The Devil Wears Transmog has been a little (read: a lot) quiet of late, largely because I haven’t been playing WoW. Even worse, I’ve been playing other things, like Final Fantasy XIV, an MMO built for the sort of person who treats collecting pretty dresses as endgame content.

But I’m back, and though the orc aesthetic has never appealed to me much, Warlords of Draenor once again has me in its, uh, thrall. If you’re looking for a little fashion inspiration to mog out of your dreary Warlords blues, or are looking to bring a little retro draenei flare to your questing ensemble, I should have something for you shortly.


Hey! Quick question…

So I’m happy enough, puttering along and throwing outfits together and posting them on the Internet in the hopes that people are interested, but I thought it worth asking the question — what do you want to see around here?

  • Is there a race/class combination that needs more love on this site?
  • If you didn’t find what you were looking for here, what were you trying to find?
  • How can I make this site suck less?

Now I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to manage everything because, well, I’m easy distracted, but I’m always looking for more sources of inspiration. Since you bothered to show up, you get dibs.

So, yeah. If there’s something you want (even if it’s just, “Hey, what about a blue leather set that works on Tauren?”) or something that might possibly make the site better, speak up in the comments.

It’s free, it’s easy, and I’ll think you’re swell.

WoW Transmog: Is it just me, or does “Transmog Blog” sound kind of weird?

Back when I was a major presence in my server’s transmog market, my favourite customers were the ones unsure of what they wanted. It seems a little counter-intuitive, because checking the Auction House occasionally for World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Jade Legplates is considerably less work than designing a look from scratch, but it gave me the chance to delve into the tantalizing and somewhat frustrating world of BoP gear, a place your average transmog vendor doesn’t often tread.

And hey, it was a refreshing break from the near constant litany of “I’ll give you 30g for that 7,500g chestplate p.s. you suck!” So there’s that.

Though I rarely made money on these personalized outfits (unfortunately, I’ve yet to find a way to charge people for the privilege of running Blackwing Lair over and over again until Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Judgement Spaulders drops), they were often the highlight of my former career.

Though, okay, the gold was good too.

I’m out of the business now (many things are fun — relisting hundreds upon hundreds of non-stackable items every day is not one of them), but it occurred to me recently that I could still do what I love without the hassle of finding actual players to please.

So, uh, welcome to the Devil Wears Transmog, my transmog blog.

How Things Work

Unless I’ve stated otherwise, every transmog outfit I post has been compiled by me and generated using the Wowhead “View in 3D” tool. If you’re interested in tier gear and other established in-game sets, I recommend checking out Wowhead’s Transmog Sets section.

From a navigation point-of-view, postings can be browsed by Armor Type and Class using the drop-down menus above.

The most important thing to mention is the colour-coded buttons you’ll notice tacked in front of every piece of gear mentioned on this website. These buttons tell you at a glance how an item can be acquired. Obviously, there’s a difference in difficulty between Molten Core and Throne of Thunder, but the idea is to give players a very rough sense of how difficult an outfit is to make.

Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Raid Drop – Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop

Dungeon Drop - Boss Loot or Dungeon Trash Drop Dungeon Drop – Boss Loot or Dungeon Trash Drop

Crafted Item Crafted Item

World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops World Drop – Includes Zone-Specific Drops

Quest Reward Quest Reward

Vendor - Justice Points Vendor – Justice Points (There are equivalent buttons for gold and honor points)

Black Market Auction House Black Market Auction House

Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Auction House (The item is a BoE)

If you can’t remember what a button means, mouse over the dot. The summary text will explain everything.

But my favourite of these buttons is the Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal (Auction House) button. It links directly to the item’s page on the Undermine Journal, allowing you to check if the item is available for purchase on your server.

I’m new to this whole “blogging” concept, so if you have any suggestions or feedback, let me know in the comments!
