Let’s face it, on RP realms, what a toon is wearing is important. On most servers, people put a little effort into making their bank toon look stylish as well. Even if your toon isn’t on one of these servers you can still look good. I’ve only put together a non-combat outfit for a couple of characters so far, but determining which one draws the most attention is easy:
Looks good, doesn’t he? People often whisper if he’s a twink, simply because he’s sitting at 70. Or, they comment on just how he looks. Keep in mind, Fireflint is on a normal PvE server (Runetotem, US). The outer pieces of the outfit just kind of came together to be honest, and then I filled it in with Cobalt armor (he is meant to tank). Now, I’ll warn anyone trying to replicate the outfit, the shoulders are no longer available at that level thanks to the Zul’Aman level boost. Fortunately, the model has been used elsewhere (click the link for more). The only other epic is the belt which comes courtesy of Magtheridon’s Lair. The rest are pretty easy to acquire, and you can see the full formula at his Wowhead profile. I’ll always keep his gear up to date for combat, but this will probably be his permanent non-combat look because I think the whole package works well and as I suggested off the top other people confirm this in whispers with a great deal of regularity.
To nitpick, I’ve always been frustrated with how everyone looks the same endgame. There might be one or two pieces that differ, but for the most part it appears like a flock of lemmings. Having that non-combat outfit just makes that little step to separate you from the pack. Also I should point out by non-combat I don’t mean casual outfits though they’re fine too. I simply mean an outfit your character wears when not raiding/questing/fighting in any shape or form. Maybe you already have a few. If that’s the case, feel free to share them in the reply section!
