wow WoW Transmogrification Series: Firelands

3 posts in this topic


Everyone has that one raid in World of Warcraft that they just love the aesthetics of. Our new series aims to provide you with cosmetic sets based on the themes of different raids in the game. Make sure you check out our first entry into the series: Firelands!


Before we begin, let's lay down some ground rules. We want every set to be equally usable by every class of that armour-type, in order to make this series as useful to everyone as possible. Let's take a look at our rules for the sets:

  1. The gear should represent the main theme of the raid.
  2. Must contain at least one main piece of gear from the raid. Bracers, for example, do not count.
  3. No class-specific gear.
  4. No armour-type mixing.
  5. All gear must be transmogrification-friendly.
  6. All items must still be available in-game.

In order to keep a wide-range of opinions flowing, we're inviting you to also take part in our posts! We want you to enter in your best sets that follow the rules above. We'll select one for each theme and feature them in our next post.


We also want you to help us choose our next theme! If you have any great suggestions, make sure to put them below. It can be anything WoW-related that you want to see a post on!


If you're looking for inspiration or pieces of gear to finish off your sets, make sure to check out our Item Models section.


Plate Set 


As a predominantly plate-wearing player, I think it's appropriate to start off with our plate wearing classes: Death Knight, Warrior and Paladin. 


Throughout the game, there are so many beautiful fiery weapons to base our outfit on, but I think inv_mace_2h_sulfuras_d_01.jpgSulfuras, the Extinguished Hand is pretty perfect. We've combined that with the off-pieces of the Heroic Paladin tier set from Firelands.




I have never been a fan of the robe-style, so I've mixed it up a bit, using the Normal Warrior chest from Firelands. The arms details match the rest of the gear well, but a tabard is definitely needed to cover up the main chest area. We've gone with the inv_misc_tabardpvp_02.jpgTabard of Flame.


The Normal belt from the Paladin set doesn't quite match the colours of the rest of the set, so we've decided to use the inv_belt_11.jpgShattered Hand Belt. It's simple, yet still looks great with the set.


You can find the full set list here.


If you are looking for alternative weapons, consider these:


inv_sword_2h_draenorchallenge_d_01.jpgGreatsword of the Inferno - WoD Gold Challenge Modes.


inv_sword_2h_deathwingraiddw_d_01.jpgGurthalak, Voice of the Deeps - Madness of Deathwing, Dragon Soul Normal.


inv_sword_134.jpgFiresoul - Flame Leviathan, Ulduar Normal 10-man.


inv_axe_12.jpgCrul'shorukh, Edge of Chaos - Nefarian, Blackwing Lair.


inv_sword_01.jpgBlade of Wizardry - World Drop.


inv_shield_01.jpgThe Fel Barrier - Nexus-Prince Shaffar, Heroic Mana-Tombs.


inv_shield_firelandsraid_d_01.jpgWard of the Red Widow - Beth'tilac, Firelands.


Mail Set


Our Mail set is going to be focusing on the Shaman lookalike set from Firelands Normal, but with a slight twist. Instead of the basic helmet, which is unavailable to other classes, we're going to be using the inv_helmet_45.jpgMalefactor's Eyepatch. If you'd like a more fiery look, you can also use inv_crown_02.jpgCrown of Destruction.


The full set list is here.




Our weapons are going to be the glorious inv_weapon_hand_05.jpgDemonblood Eviscerator, but there are plenty of alternatives for other Shamans and Hunters, such as:


inv_staff_41.jpgSpire of Scarlet Pain - Zone drop from Firelands.


inv_weapon_crossbow_10.jpgMerciless Gladiator's Crossbow of the Phoenix - 750 Honor from Kezzik the Striker, Netherstorm.


inv_bow_1h_firelandsraid_d_01.jpgArathar, the Eye of Flame - Ragnaros, Firelands.


inv_mace_39.jpgDragonstrike, Reborn - Crafted by Blacksmithing.


inv_shield_10.jpgDrillborer Disk - Garr, Molten Core.


inv_shield_01.jpgThe Fel Barrier - Nexus-Prince Shaffar, Heroic Mana-Tombs.


inv_offhand_1h_deathwingraid_d_01.jpgLedger of Revolting Rituals - Ultraxion, Normal Dragon Soul.


Leather Set


This one is pretty tricky. Leather wearers by their nature are not exactly flashy and fiery, since Rogues prefer the shadows, Druids prefer hugging trees and Monks prefer spiritual stuff. So, we've had to improvise with a set from Sunwell Plateau. In order to fill the class specific armour slots, we've used inv_boots_cloth_05.jpgRelentless Gladiator's Boots of Triumph and inv_belt_43c.jpgRelentless Gladiator's Belt of Triumph. We've then combined the old Burning Crusade gear with the inv_knife_1h_firelandsraid_d_01.jpgAlysra's Razor from Firelands to create this:




For the full set list, check here.


As you can see, the daggers themselves pretty much "breathe" the essence of the Firelands, but let's see if there are any alternatives:


inv_sword_48.jpgPerdition's Blade - Ragnaros, Molten Core.


inv_staff_99.jpgFandral's Flamescythe - Majordomo Staghelm, Firelands. (Turns druids into their fire cat form)


inv_mace_39.jpgDragonstrike, Reborn - Crafted by Blacksmithing.


inv_sword_01.jpgBlade of Wizardry - World Drop.


inv_knife_1h_firelandsraid_d_02.jpgEntrail Disgorger - Boss drop, Firelands Normal.


inv_staff_41.jpgSpire of Scarlet Pain - Zone drop from Firelands.


inv_offhand_1h_deathwingraid_d_01.jpgLedger of Revolting Rituals - Ultraxion, Normal Dragon Soul.


Cloth Set


Our cloth set is pretty tame when compared to the others, containing a number of green, low level items. We still think it fits together pretty well with the Mage lookalike shoulders and the inv_sword_01.jpgBlade of Wizardry:




The full set list can be found here.


If you're looking for some alternate weapons, check these out:


inv_staff_41.jpgSpire of Scarlet Pain - Zone drop from Firelands.

inv_sword_1h_mantidarch_c_01.jpgMantid Sky Reaver - Found through Archaeology.
inv_staff_40.jpgBloodfire Greatstaff - Dropped by Aenous, The Black Morass.
inv_stave_2h_firelandsraid_d_01.jpgSmoldering Censer of Purity - Boss drop from Firelands.
inv_mace_1h_firelandsraid_d_04.jpgKo'gun, Hammer of the Firelord - Ragnaros, Firelands.
inv_offhand_1h_deathwingraid_d_01.jpgLedger of Revolting Rituals - Ultraxion, Normal Dragon Soul.
Mount and Pet 
Every player needs a mount and pet to accompany their fantastic transmog set, so we've made sure to pick one of each out for this theme: Cinder Pup and inv_misc_orb_05.jpgSmoldering Egg of Millagazor.
We hope you enjoyed our first installment in this new series and we look forward to seeing your fantastic sets in the replies!

As a druid I was always jealous of the Rogue heroic tier set in the raid. Luckily the entire set has an entire look-a-like! It might take a couple of weeks to farm the whole thing but the end result is great for non Rogue leather wearers. Here's the entire set.

Yeah the Rogue set always looked good, I just didn't use it on our list because it isn't the most fiery of sets. It's still a pretty awesome set from Firelands.

      Cleared Heroic and Normal Emerald Nightmare in the first week of it's release.
      Classes Needed:
      Resto Shaman
      Resto Druid
      Balance Druid
      Shadow Priest
      Always looking for exceptional DPS of any class.

      About Us: 
      We are a guild, made up of former members of <Red Shift> and <Casually Addicted>, on Bleeding Hollow (PvP Server on a Chicago Datacenter) that have a common goal and will do what is necessary to achieve it. We are Shifty Casuals.
      We are a group of professional adults, who believe success in raiding doesn't correlate to number in days/hours you spend raiding. We are starting a fresh page within our guild history and sticking to a 3 day a week raid schedule.
      We don't tolerate elitism, bigotry, misogyny or any of the like. We enjoy our calm, adult environment and have no qualms with protecting it.
      We do loot council which is fair and distributes loot for the progression of the raid as a whole and not an individual player. No favoritism, no loot drama.
      We have our sights set on top 100 US for Legion and are looking for like-minded individuals to join our ranks.

      Raid Days and Times (All times in EST as that is our server time):
      · Tuesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Wednesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Thursday 8:45pm-11:45pm

      Who We Want:
      Since we are reforming and building for the expansion now is a great time to get in on the ground floor and clear content with us, while prepping for the new expansion. These are some key traits that we are looking for:
      · Someone who understands that 3 nights a week raiding means that you need to bring your A-game each and every night. Attendance is expected to be near 100%. By committing to raid, you are committing yourself to our raiding schedule.
      · The ability to perform under pressure. We only recruit impressive players, and spots are always competitive.
      · Extensive class knowledge of your class. (IE: Alpha/beta testing, keeping up with theorycrafting, properly gemmed/enchanted, always be up to date on the intricacies of your class (not solely your spec(s)) and on the utility of the entire raid group.)
      · A computer that can handle 20-30 man raiding and the ability to communicate via VOIP when needed. You must have a working headset and mic, and you must be prepared to use them. We will not read chat during boss fights. Inability to give a vocal response will not be tolerated as it directly hinders progression.
      · Tough skin. We're always looking to improve ourselves as should you. Constructive criticism is encouraged, but flaming and insulting is not tolerated whatsoever.

      If you have what it takes to be a part of this great team and community, feel free to apply at our website  If you have questions about the application process, contact any of the officers for additional information.

      Patch 7.1 is approaching and a lot of players will be lured by the siren of false riches.
      For details which items are available in exchange for Blood of Sargeras look here. What will happen after Patch 7.1 goes live?
      Prices of reagents will go drastically down as there will be a large spike in supply. Players will be burning their bloods. Many players are currently sitting on lots of bloods, because apart from Professions there's currently no use for them.  These very same players are willing to make quick Gold, which is where we will strike to make even more. Prices will stabilize again somewhere below their current values when people burn all their bloods. We want to make the most out of this opportunity, because we are patient little Goblins, right? Here are some steps to make you prepared for the Patch.
      Nobody will be buying crappy items like Unbroken Claw or Lean Shank from the vendor as they want to maximize the value of bloods. It all comes down to players whining about how expensive all herb-based products (flasks, elixirs) are, so let's talk herbs! Hebs
      Will be the most valued commodity. Let's do a little research with Median Prices (US)
      Fjarnskaggl's price is 44.31 Gold. Foxflower's price is 48.86 Gold. Starlight Rose price is 114.71 Gold. (Source)
      Blood Spending
      So, spending a blood on the Fjarnskaggl is 443.10 Gold, Foxflower 488.60 Gold and Starlight Rose just 344.13 Gold, which bring us to a conclusion that to get the maximum value of your bloods spend them on Fjarnskaggl & Foxflower.
      Buying Herbs & Making Profit
      Starlight Rose is a reagent used for many flasks. On Patch day (October 25), buy as many as you can. The influx in supply will be vast and the price reduction will be crazy on Tuesday/Wednesday. Wait until at least November 8 when Trial of Valor opens and resell all the roses when the demand gets higher and people will have spent their bloods. Closing Tips
      Don't forget to set up your Sniper to constantly scan the Auction House as miss-pricing will definitely occur. A separate account just for constant Sniping can always make you tons of gold!

      Falcosaur Pets!
      Patch 7.1 introduces us to a rare Falcosaur breed of pets and mounts! You can obtain four new Falcosaur pets.
      Bloodgazer Hatchling - Azsuna Direbeak Hatchling - Stormheim Sharptalon Hatchling - Val'sharah Snowfeather Hatchling - Highmountain
      World Quests
      Need to be up in a specific zone to get the pet. They are on a two-day duration and even more than one can be up at a time.
      Bloodgazer Swarm! Direbeak Swarm! Sharptalon Swarm! Snowfeather Swarm! Killing the Matriarch will spawn a corresponding orphan that you can interact with only by giving him food. Journal descriptions of the pets will give you more insight.
      Azsunian Grapes Pungent Vrykul Gamalost Dried Bilberries Smoked Elderhorn After feeding the pet, you will need to level it to 25 then you will receive a specific quest which you need to complete. Overall, the quest line is quite long and involves, PvP, World Quests, raiding / dungeons with your pet out.
      One of the final quests of the chain gives you Ultimate Battle-Training Stone, which is great, because you don't need to level another Falcosaur to 25!
      That's not everything, Muffinus confirmed even more quests on Twitter.
      Placeholder for tweet 784751197915783169 Mad props to Quintessence for her very detailed research on the subject. Don't forget to visit her blog for an in-depth look at Falcosaurs!
      Falcosaur Mounts
      Four new Falcosaur mounts are coming. Their color corresponds to the pets so maybe after completing the Falcosaur quest chain they may be a final reward depending on which pet you pick.

      Today's blue posts cover Trial of Valor LFR Testing, Havoc Demon Hunters, Outlaw Rogues, Honor Talents & Prestige and finally the Zoom Slider.
      The LFR difficulty for Trial of Valor is being playtested now on Public Test Realms until tomorrow.
      The Trial of Valor raid will be opening very shortly for testing on Raid Finder difficulty, and will remain open through tomorrow. Please use this thread to provide feedback, bug reports, and other relevant commentary.
      If you prestiged at least once prior to 7.1, all Honor Talents will be unlocked when the patch goes live.
      f you have already prestiged at least once before 7.1 then all of the honor talents will be automatically unlocked once 7.1 goes live.
      Source for those who want double confirmation:
      Havoc Demon Hunter talent diversification is on the list, here's an update from Ornyx. The changes won't come with 7.1, but later in a hotfix maybe?
      Hey everyone,

      Bit of an update here - we’re looking into potentially making some changes to a few of Havoc’s talents, to diversify your options a bit and make certain rows feel more like there’s a choice to be made. 

      No details to share just yet, and these changes won’t make it into Patch 7.1, but we’re working on it.
      Buffs to Outlaw Rogues are imminent. Devs confirmed seeing them a little lower in numbers than expected. Another discussed subject is Roll the Bones.
      Hey everyone,

      Thanks again for your patience here as it does take some time to make sure we go over all the feedback we receive - we've been having a few conversations based on the feedback in this thread and throughout the community, and I wanted to share our thoughts on Roll the Bones, as well as the state of Outlaw overall.

      Roll the Bones is a spec-defining ability for Outlaw Rogues, and there’s a lot of depth to the gameplay of reacting to the various buffs that the Bones can provide, as they alter the flow and pace of combat. We’re happy with how it’s played out, and there are very few class mechanics that can rival the excitement of getting that elusive 6-buff at just the right time.

      That said, we recognize that that playstyle might not sit well for everyone, which is why we created Slice and Dice as an alternative to opt-out of the Roll the Bones playstyle. Marked for Death and Death From Above take a little more effort to use effectively, and need to give enough of a benefit to reward that effort, but we’re going to take another look at Slice and Dice to make sure it’s living up to expectations. If it isn’t, we’ll look into making some improvements.

      Separately from Roll the Bones, we do feel that Outlaw’s DPS has ended up a little lower than we’d like it to be, and are looking into some options to bring it up a bit. We don’t have an ETA just yet on when that might happen, but it’s on our to-do list.
      No nerfs to zoom, only cVAR changes on PTRs.
      Zoom nerfed on PTR. Intended?
      Intended, yes - but maybe not quite in the way you phrased it.

      The CVar has changed to cameraDistanceMaxZoomFactor, so the command you will want to use now is "/console cameraDistanceMaxZoomFactor 2.6". This value should also persist now, so you only need to use the command once.

      The slider itself was unnecessary, and has been removed. The default value is set to the max, and very, very few people (if anyone?) used it to reduce their maximum zoom distance. The game's zoom distance will now default to the old maximum value of 1.9 unless changed with the above console command.

      Thanks for bringing this to our attention, though! Appreciate the feedback here. :)
      Can you ask the dev team to do one small test before considering this to go live? Try the Lorlathil daily where you have to gather the nuts. I have to zoom way in to click on them, otherwise the click region is so small, it's frustrating. I'm sure there are other quests that will be similar (catching the squirrels or whatever they are) in hyjal, for instance.
      This doesn't affect the amount you can zoom in, only the amount you can zoom out. We did take situations like this into account, but we don't believe players are necessarily reducing their maximum camera view distance for this (rather than just mouse-wheeling to zoom in).
      That's it for today's blues!
