|Mechanical Squirrel sez: "Transmog that unsightly non-matching raid gear!|
With 4.3 creeping ever closer (the background downloader makes it feel like it's coming RIGHT NOW,) I'm feeling a little bit more compelled to have something to transmog. My guild isn't really into farming old content for vanity loot, so I found a simple solution that I think is still fun enough to wear around.
With Jacklalane being a human paladin, I'm given the not-so-unique opportunity to make him look JUST like a guard in Stormwind. The Imperial Plate armor set is amazingly easy to get, and aside from the shoulders it looks identical to what Stormwind guards pat around in. I decided to forego the bracers, since you cant see them anyway. Since the set lacks gloves entirely, I grabbed some Platemail Gloves from a vendor. They're a temporary solution since I don't believe you can transmog stat-less items.
The mats for the helm, shoulders, chest, legs, boots, and belt are as follows: 102 Thorium Bar, 12 Rugged Leather, and 1 Star Ruby, as seen here:
All I had to do was yell at my GM long enough to get on his blacksmith, and POOF, Jack is a badass Stormwind guard:

More transmogging will certainly happen. I've got a pretty delicious looking set of brutal gladiator pvp gear that will probably see some use, but I think I'll definitely spend some time raiding in this getup.
