For the month of March, I’m celebrating the colour orange as part of Jstmel’s transmog challenge. This also happened to be the perfect opportunity to create a mog around the Robes of the Battleguard. I’ve always loved the look of these Princess Leia dresses but they can also be a little tricky to style.
Atum was the ancient Egyptian god who symbolised the setting sun so with that in mind I wanted to design a smokin’ theme.
These days, farming the Circle of Flame is a lot easier given the conveniently placed mole machines inside BRD. Initially, I used my Direbrew Remote to get to the Grim Guzzler and picked up my obligatory Dire Brew when I reached the top of the bar. From there, I made my way into the Chamber of Enchantment. The hard part was getting the item to actually drop from Ambassadar Flamelash.
Circle of Flame, Mantle of Closed Doors, Robes of the Battleguard, Ebony Flame Gloves, Ruthless Gladiator’s Cord of Accuracy, Cloudscorcher Leggings, Footwraps of the Oracle, Spire of Coagulated Globules
Some of these I already own including the priest only footwraps from AQ and PVP belt. The Doomcaller’s Footwraps (which are the warlock equivalent) may offer a better match but I wanted to add a little more green to complement the belt. However, if you’re using a two-piece set, the Firescribe Dagger and Igniter Rod are a couple of alternatives.
It’s getting hot in here…
Logan possesses memories of being a Samurai in Japan, a mercenary operative for the Central Intelligence Agency, and a “wild man” in the Canadian wilderness. Due to extensive memory implants given to Logan through the Weapon X program, any or all of these memories are suspect. Logan has at least one memory of meeting Captain America (Steve Rogers) in World War II while he was in the Canadian Army which has been verified as true. Sometime after World War II, Logan was taken by a group of scientists led by Dr. Cornelius as part of the Weapon X program. Cornelius was hired to perfect and use a technique that would bond the indestructible element adamantium to human bone cells. Logan’s skeleton was bonded to the adamantium, and he was indoctrinated into the Weapon X assassin program.More on Marvel.com
Ah, Wolverine and Hugh Jackman – what a great combination. Leather just seemed fitting for a Wolverine outfit but I wasn’t sure if I could pull it off so I looked at all armour types (just in case).
It was hard to find any yellow pieces to use – short of using plate – and wolf helms were too cheesy. In the end, I made a compromise between his classic wolverine costume (second image above) and a more recent one. When finalising the set in WMV, I found a weird bug with the left fist weapon causing it to appear backwards like two right-handed fist weapons. Thankfully this was easily fixed in Photoshop.
Only leather pieces were used – short of any shoulders for a complete transmog.

Today I spent some time building something around the Vile Fumigator’s Mask from yesterday. It wasn’t long before I decided upon the Blessed Regalia of Undead Cleansing set from the Scourge Invasion back in 2008.
I was determined to only use items I had in my inventory and I was quite happy with the finished result even though the mask isn’t moggable.
I made sure to shoot Cool with some vile fumes before we logged out though.
Now to mog my gear back to my Vampira set.
