So, in the final preparation weeks before Mists drops I’ve been trying to clear up a few bits and pieces. Whilst a general round up can be covered in another post, I thought I’d do a little mini post on how I’ve mogged out my death knight, because it’s one of the few characters where I’ve chosen to build a set myself, rather than being a cheap ass and using a Blizzard Tier set.
So, I present to you Ellenaie:
I designed her kit mostly around her hair and the idea of frost. Although she is a frost DK, this had little to do with the decision, it really was mostly aesthetics.
She’s rocking the Black Icicle and Falric’s Wrist-Chopper as weapons (both from Halls of Reflection Heroic).
Her boots are the Rock Furrow Boots (JP Legacy Vendor), pants are the Cobalt Legplates (NR Blacksmithing) and belt is the DK only Plaguebringer’s Girdle.
Gloves are Cobalt Gauntlets (NR Blacksmithing again) and her chestplate is the Light Elementium Chestguard (Cata Blacksmithing). Finally, her Cloak is the Shroud of the North Wind and is also DK specific, and her shoulders drop from Pit of Saron – the Shoulderplates of Frozen Blood.
My aim with this set was to have every single item picking out that luminescent blue her hair – and eyes! – have. Although in some places this is more obvious that others – the boots, belt, shoulders and weapons all have very distinctive glows – I feel the whole set pulls together quite well to make her look like a bit of a bad ass! I’m really pleased with how this mog turned out, I have to say. I’d be interested in any opinions and if anyone thinks I’ve missed the mark here, or if there’s some uber bit of gear I’ve missed that would work!
My next goal is my mage – she just needs her Boots from The Mechanar and gloves from Kara to finish her set off. Hopefully they’ll come soon enough!
