Before the Terrapin 500, we had August's transmog contest. The theme was "Pick a battle pet and make a tmog around it". You can see all the transmogs here. The winners this month were Jorsha in 3rd place; Souvlaki, and her impression of Sylvanas, in 2nd place; and a tie for first place between Lianth and Gimmlette.
Lianth (Jaxdia) and her Darkmoon Faire zeppelin.
Gimmlette and her Nightmare Whelpling.
Next month's theme is: Terrible Fall/Autumn Transmogs. Because I'm a judge, I want to see "terrible", "terribad", "awful", "make my eyes bleed" transmogs.
While out trying to find pieces for my August transmog, I found myself in some of the older dungeons and raids. If you are dedicated to transmogs, and the recently concluded "Trial of Style" pointed a lot of people in the direction of transmog, you are almost always on a mission to find more pieces with the comment, "You have not collected this appearance". A lot of us are running older content looking for mounts or gear and we're getting gear which we may already know the appearance of or which isn't something we can wear. Maybe, however, it's useful to someone else in the guild also interested in transmog.
So, I came up with this idea which we'll use for the whole month of September. This is the current state of our gear tab, tab 4.
Wait. Everything is gone! It is. All the stuff on here has either been sold or stored away for later use.
What you're going to do is use this tab to dump all your unwanted OLDER gear on this tab. Only gear, Warlords of Draenor or older, goes on this tab. You may stick gear, shields, cloaks, and weapons on this tab. Quality doesn't matter. Once we get a few donations, we'll straighten up the tabs so you can better find things. Also, if you want to craft older gear because you can, you are most welcome to. If you need materials to craft, just ask. We have a lot of "hoarders" in the guild and chances are extremely good someone has what you need.
If you see something you don't know, grab it and learn it. Depending upon the amount of donations, we will be refreshing stock once a week or every other week. Things donated but not claimed will be sold, either in the AH or vendored, and the monies added to the bank.
This is a great way for those of you who stockpile gear thinking it might be useful to someone, to get rid of it. All those runs of Ulduar and ICC and Blackwing Lair and Tempest Keep and Mogu'shan Vault will prove fruitful for someone. Everyone, including our new members, will have access to this tab. Who knows what fantastic stuff people have or find or create. With Hallow's End coming and *cough* probably another Halloween costume transmog event upcoming, you're sure to want more looks.
If you've got questions about how this will work, just ask. You can start putting gear into the emptied tab now. On October 1st, all will be removed and we'll go back to current content gear and the help items we have for lower level toons. I'm excited to see what you all stumble across. Remember, Warlords of Draenor and earlier content and feel free to add in crafted gear.
This will be fun.
