I'd actually forgotten what my character's gear looked like. I've been so heavily into transmog since the end of Cataclysm, I've long since stopped paying attention to the gear I have, and instead keep compulsively looking for the gear I want to look like - running older content, scrounging old quests, occasionally hitting LFR for a new skin or color of a piece I already have.

One of the consequences of transmogrification is that I can blissfully go throughout my game play never really actually knowing what the gear I have on looks like. For instance, I'm really not a fan of this sword model - I love the stats, but the look of it isn't one I like. It's not as outright ludicrously evil as Xal'atoh, and not as elegant as Gar'tok, one of my favorite models from the current raid. But since I have one of those, I haven't had to look at this model since I got it.

In a way I'm kind of glad I switched everything back to its actual model. It's good to take a look at what you're actually wearing from time to time - and now I know I'm probably dumping every single piece of Warrior tier 16 as soon as I start leveling through Draenor, and I'm probably going to disenchant that sword. Or at least one of them. I admit, I'm such a completionist, DEing both would be hard. My weapon collection would be upset.
