Transmogrification: Vanilla and BC Tier Fashion for Priests

With the release of Patch 4.3, Blizzard has introduced a unique feature: Transmogrification.

From Blizzard: “The Ethereals, emerging from the nether, will bring with them a new technology they call Transmogrification. They’re heading to the capital cities of Azeroth to set up shop and to offer adventurers a unique service — copying the appearance of one magical item onto another. They only ask for a modest gold donation to recoup their costs.”

No words can describe how awesome this feature is. But there is a catch. Currently, it seems you would need to obtain the original piece of gear for you to use the graphic on your current loot. Priests have had some REALLY GOOD sets, and some kinda ugly ones. Lets take a look at each one.

Vestments of the Devout

This set is found in numerous dungeons across Azeroth ranging from Stratholme, Scholomance, and Upper and Lower Blackrock Spire. MY GRADE: C

Vestments of the Virtuous

Just merely a re-skinned version of the Devout set. It is upgradeable through quests. MY GRADE: C+

Hallowed Raiment

I actually really like this set. It is obtainable from BC dungeons like the Arcatraz, Shadow Labyrinth, and Sethekk Halls. MY GRADE: B+

Mana-Etched Regalia

A re-skinned version of the Hallowed Rainment, this skin was originally meant for Mages, Warlocks, and Shadow Priests. Obtainable by running Heroic BC dungeons like Hellfire Ramparts and The Slave Pens. My Grade: B+

Vestments of Prophecy

These are obtained by doing Molten Core. It should be easily solo-able by any level 85. Be aware that a look-alike set exists and can be crafted. Check it out here. MY GRADE: D

Vestments of Transcendence

This set will mainly drop from Black Wing Lair. MY GRADE: B

Vestments of Faith

Apparantly this set is no longer obtainable. /sad face. It was made from special items that dropped from the original Naxxramas raid. MY GRADE: B+

Incarnate Raiment

This gear is obtainable for purchase via tokens. Many of the tokens drop from BC raids like Gruul’s Lair and Karazhan. MY GRADE: C

Avatar Raiment

Absolutely beautiful and one of my favorites. Blizz really outdid themselves for T5. The Avatar set can be purchased via tokens that drop from BC raid bosses. They are found in Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep. MY GRADE: A

Vestments of Absolution

My all-time favorite. T6 is the set most Priests will be striving for. The 2 main raids you will need to do will be the Battle for Hyjal and Black Temple. MY GRADE: A+

Next week I’ll be going over World of Fashioncraft from Wrath to Cataclysm and I’ll be going over some good looking PvP sets you may want to consider as well!

  1. It’s telling that there’s no T7-T12 shown here (what? someone may like T12 enough to transmog their T13 into it – just not a priest). Priest gear in LK was pretty un-inspiring, and the 2 people with holy water basins on my T11 shoulders while I wear a deep-sea-diving helmet look is. . . bad freaky.

    Not sure I dig the full T5 / T6 hood / cowl look. So I think the cloth helm from BWL Nef that looks like a halo / circlet (and which he wears in his human form in BWD before he revives Ony) + the T5 set would be pretty nice.

    I failed to make Bene/Anathema before the quests were taken away ( 😦 ).
    I will probably be using my cherub-on-a-stick staff from Gurtokk Bloodboil as holy and my zergling on a stick from Illidan as shadow (unless I can get a lucky Doom Lord Kazzak run – I bet the purple crystal staff he drops is pretty as shadow).

    • @Krunch: “It’s telling that there’s no T7-T12 shown here” – if you read the last paragraph, it says “Next week I’ll be going over World of Fashioncraft from Wrath to Cataclysm” – that’s why there’s no T7-T12 here!;)

      • Yep – I realized that by the title of the post as well: “Vanilla and BC Tier”


        I still don’t like the Tier sets from LK or (so far) in Cata – though the T10 stuff from ICC was passable, it was also too generic and could have been priest or mage gear.

  4. I have to admit, part of me wants to run screaming from the tier sets. Even the unpopular tier sets are bound to have hundreds of people wearing them. I want to find something much more simple and modest for my priest. Still working on that, as most of the green quality cloth items seem to only look good on characters of a certain torso shape – human, draenei, troll etc. As soon as you put most of these outfits on a dwarf female they look odd due to the breast shape being that much larger than on other female models. So, I’m still in search of an outfit that looks elegant and simple without looking blurry 😦
