Which rogue gear will you transmogrify to?

In the next patch (which is likely several months off) we’re getting Transmogrification.  Besides that being a great word, its an interesting feature.  This will allow us to change the look of our armor.  You can re-skin your armor to look like any other armor that you currently have/own.

Do you still have the old Nightslayer set  setting in your bank?  The one with the boob shoulders?  Well with Transmogrification you’ll be able to make your T12 look like Nightslayer Armor, if that’s what you want.

First – I want to say that I don’t really like this feature.  I have always enjoyed the fact that you can look at someone’s armor and be impressed by pieces you have never seen.  You can often get a feel of a player’s progression by the epic-ness of their appearance.   This will change that, and that makes me a little sad.

I have two full bags of old tier pieces and other memorable items in my bank.  Time to sort them and see what I am missing.

With that in mind, which armor will you walk around in?  Will you go back and farm old sets to get the look you want?


Decisions, decision

I’m moving slowly in this tier of the expansion.  We’re still only 1/7 in Firelands.  I can’t bring myself to run heroics over and over.  As a result, my flow of Valor Points is slow as molasses.

I finally broke 2200 this week, so I can buy any piece of VP gear.  I’m debating between getting either the Dark Phoneix Tunic or the combination of the Morningstar Shard and the Necklace of Smoke Signals.

The combination of neck and thrown upgrades is a larger theoretical dps boost than the T12 chest alone.  However, if I spend my VP on those, then it will take forever to get enough points for a T12 piece.

In past expansions, this is always the direction I have gone.  As a result, I have never had a 4-piece bonus of a tier set.  Maybe this time I should go with the tier piece, just so I am one step toward the set.

Decisions, decisions…
