We’re currently in the process of tidying up our sidebar, removing outdated links and adding new ones.
This is where you come in – we are very keen to find new sites that in some way or another deal with either roleplay gear and/or transmogrification gear. Needless to say, it’s an absolute criteria that the site is not purely text-based.
Here’s what we are looking for in particular:
Sites and articles that accessorise, f.ex. by matching weaponry to tier or PvP sets.
Example: Transmogrification Journal 2: Paladin Tier-2 Judgement Armor by Tengen
Tengen has taken several paladin sets and gone through every imaginable piece of weaponry that matches. These are great guides for players who have the gear, but want an overview of what weaponry to go for. If you have a website/blog and are dedicated to a certain class, consider doing what Tengen does and let us know about it. Likewise if you’ve run into this sort of guide, please throw a link in the comments.
We would like to include this sort of link into the respective article, as we’ve done with one of Tengen’s guides in our own Judgement article.
Please be aware that we are looking for something substantial, not just a picture showing an outfit with one set of weapons.
Sites that display transmog gear, but do it in a creative manner.
We’re looking for originality, not just posting the sets Wowhead has already compiled.
RubyLupine’s blog, Ruby Riches, is young, but she has already put out some well constructed sets. She’s dedicated to helping players assemble oufits and she also takes submissions.
The author of WoW : Fashion, Susiemac, posts a wide variety of custom sets, and her blog is a dedicated transmog site, but she doesn’t shy from posting NPC sets and other fun bits. She has a bigger backlog to her site than RubyLupine, but both are recommendable.
We would love if some of you could throw some links to sites that are also dedicated to roleplay/transmog gear similar to what RubyLupine and Susiemac do.
Sites that take up certain transmog themes, but aren’t necessarily a dedicated transmog site.
Example: Non-Raid Transmog Weapon Compilation by Orcish Army Knife
Rades, the author, has put together a line of posts detailing nice looking weapons that are all from outside of raids. Rades also shows pieces that are of special interest, f.ex. Crimson Beholder Eye headgear.
Sites that go further and puts together whole styles of matching gear, weaponry, vanity pets, trinkets, mounts, tabards – everything fun and expressive.
Example: Drrum’s Pets and Mounts Gallery
The above link is to the first page of Drrum’s Pets and Mounts Gallery. It’s a huge gallery which focuses on matching outfits with pets and mounts, lots of inspiration can be found here. Drrum makes a point of creating a highly aesthetic screenshot by placing a strong emphasis on the scenery as well the character and companions. It’s a very entrancing website overall.
If you have a website or know of a website that puts outfits into context to create a complete expression, please comment below.
Ps: If the name sounds familiar to you, it’s not a coincidence. Drrum had the honor of becoming immortalized as a pet seller located in Winterspring.
Sites that are dedicated to showing weaponry in general.
Example: Disenchanting Azeroth
Keelhaul, the creator of Disenchanting Azeroth not only showed pictures of available weaponry divided by category, but also did visual analyses of the types of weaponry. This way you could not only browse cool looking weapons, but also see how unique the weapon was and how many recolors it had. It’s displaying weaponry with a twist and has an interesting scientific angle to it.
We do not currently have plans to display weaponry ourselves, except very special looking examples or pieces that have rolepay potential. So if you know about sites that do go further, especially if they can add something extra to it like Keelhaul did, we would like to hear from you.
Do you know of a site that does not fall within the above categories? We’d love to see something new – Share it in the comments!Posted in Highlights. Leave a response! You can follow responses to this entry through our RSS 2.0 feed.
