To celebrate her second anniversary, Saga over at Spellbound is hosting a “worst dressed Warlock” competition.
So let’s turn it around. Let’s find the worst possible Warlock outfit available in the game. Something that would make other Warlocks shun you and not let you near them. Something that would make your demon take one look at you and return back to the Twisting Nether laughing all the way.
Naturally I couldn’t resist joining in.
I’ve always thought of Warlocks as the “Fords” of WoW, wearing any colour as long as it’s black. Spikes, bleeding hearts and skulls being optional extras, the more glitz you can pack on an outfit, the better you look and everyone knows Warlocks are all about style, sex and stealing souls.
So if that’s fashion 101 for a Warlock, what would a self respecting demon summoner never been seen in? Floral prints, fluffy sweaters with kittens on them, Mage gear?
Unfortunately WoW doesn’t offer us the “fluffy sweater with kittens on” option, so I had to settle for the fresh flowers and Mage gear. Everything in the first two outfits is suitable for transmogrification, unfortunately the final option is purely for hanging out in the city of your choice scaring impressionable Imps.
I call this “hug a Tree of Life today!”
She is barefoot on purpose, all the better for feeling the grass wriggle under her feet.
- Shoulders: Greenweave Mantle
- Chest: Willow Robe
- Gloves: Gold flecked gloves
- Belt: Silksand girdle
- Boots: Greenweave sandals (not shown in the picture but added in case of hot coals or ice-fields).
- Staff: Draenic Wildstaff
“The I really wanted to be a Mage but wandered into the wrong classroom whilst distracted by a fluffy bunny hopping by” look. By the time she realised her mistake, they’d already got her signature in blood and handed out an annoying imp. Once you’ve got the demons and the scythe, there’s no way out, not even dying!
- Head: Cowl of the Grand Engineer (this is one of my favourite cloth helms in-game).
- Shoulders: Mantle of the Closed Door
- Chest: Vestments of the Sea-Witch
- Shirt: Orange Mageweave shirt
- Gloves: Gloves of High Magus
- Bracers: Furious Gladiator’s Cuffs of Salvation
- Sword: Vibro Sword
- Off-hand: Lei of the Lifegiver
- Shoes: Gnomish Casting Boots
Finally, I got a bit obsessed with fluffy jumpers, the sort that my Great Aunts would produce every Christmas which led to this brain wave. We might not have sweaters with kittens on, but we do have a suitably tasteless one to play with. This is Snowdrop, my baby lock modelling the latest in Winter Veil carolling gear. Just the thing for the discerning Warlock to run a mile from (even more so when she starts to sing!).
- Shoulders: Consortium Mantle
- Chest: Gaudy Winter Veil Sweater
- Kilt: Elunarian Sarong
- Dagger: Miniature Winter Veil Tree
- Off-hand: Evergreen Branch
So Happy Anniversary Saga, I hope I’ve conjured up three horrific ensembles, the likes of which could make your Voidwalker sacrifice himself and your Succubus turn her whip on you. I know that in order to convince my Warlocks to model them, I had to send their demons away and promise them that no one would ever see the pictures…. (whoops!).
Also no Warlocks or demons were seriously hurt in the making of these transmogrifications, other than an Imp who almost died of laughter when he sneaked back from the Twisting Nether to have a closer look.
