Got an in-game message from a guildie this morning.
Maul is the UGLIEST mess of random gear you’ll ever see! HELP!
So, after losing out on the Gurubashi Arena trinket, I set about helping out a friend. Let’s see just how bad things are, shall we? A trip to the armory, and punch in Maulissa…
Oh my. Yes, I do believe I see a red flag on the transmogrification play. *knuckle crack* Let’s see what we can do. I hopped on Carrera so that I had the same body type to work with. Off the bat, I remembered him saying he wanted Maulissa to eventually be using a crossbow. I narrowed my ideas down to the Admantine Repeater or the Felglacier Bolter.
I started going through chestpieces to see if something jumped out at me, and would match up with either crossbow I had settled on. After a short time, I came upon Chestguard of the Lasher. Now the wheels started to turn. However, I had to find some shoulders next, because they tend to be the lynchpin of success or failure. This time around, there was success to be had courtesy of the Giantstalker’s Epaulets. They gave the outfit a nice pop.
I looked at helms next, not too concerned if I didn’t find one. He could always turn the helm off if nothing matched up very well. Truth be told, I found several great helms but of course not in the colours I was seeking. Still, I didn’t come away empty handed. I went with the Stormhide Crown. Simple, yet effective in this case. The same could be said for the hands, as Gloves of Taut Grip were a quick match.
I had a few choices for the waist, but wanted something that connected back to the shoulders and I found that in the Imbued Infantry Belt. All that was left at this point was the legs and feet. It deviates a bit from the colour scheme, but in scrolling through pants on MogIt, the Ruthless Gladiator’s Chain Leggings just “popped” immediately. I looked through the rest but nothing stood out nearly as much. So, I topped the outfit off with Tsunami Boots (they don’t show on a Draenei) and our look was complete!
I thought about a cape, but the outfit is pretty stand alone in this case. With what I’ve put together, there’s two Leatherworking pieces, one PvP, and a random drop. Also, visits to Molten Core (1), Heroic Blood Furnace (1), and 10-man Ulduar (2) are required to put it all together. Fortunately, I had planned at least one of those raids in July, so we’ll cross our fingers that the RNG works out in his favour!
Then again, for now I just hope he likes it!
