Breakfast Topic: How far do you go for coordination?

Anne Stickney

I believe I may have mentioned on more than one occasion that I am pretty much a slave to transmogrification. I can't help it -- there's something inherently fun about playing dress up with my various characters. What I haven't mentioned, however, is exactly how far I go with my transmogrification choices. For me, I like building sets that either contain a bunch of pieces from matching sets, a color theme that trickles through pieces of non-set gear, or a simple, themed outfit of some sort.

It's the third that has my attention currently captured, a simple set with tunic, ratty pants, giant, clonky boots and gloves and a set of goggles. The whole thing screams engineer in a way that I'm terribly pleased with. But see, I don't just stop with the outfits. Every time I change my outfit, I choose a new land and flying mount from my stable of assorted mounts, two that thematically match whatever outfit I've built. In the case of the engineer outfit, I've got my Turbo-Charged Flying Machine and my Mechano-Hog bound to hotkeys to use. When I change outfits, I change mounts.

It occurs to me that perhaps I am a little overboard in my zealousness. But given the number of transmogrification blogs out there, I don't think I'm as alone as I sometimes feel. So I ask you all, how far do you go for coordination's sake? Do you simply put together matching sets? Do you color coordinate with mounts and pets? Or do you happily wander around in a clown suit, avoiding the curiously addictive nature of transmogrification altogether?

Patch 4.3 lets you transmogrify your gear to look like any other gear your class can wear -- but you have to collect it first. Check out our coverage of transmogrification and start running those old dungeons!
