Remixing the Stormwind Guard for transmogrification

Dawn Moore

There are few NPCs in WoW more iconic than the Stormwind Guard. Even if you're Horde, it's hard not to like the striking contrast of blue and silver metals paired with the golden lion's head emblem. OK, so maybe not if you're Horde, but I digress. I've always loved the look of the Stormwind Guard, yet when it comes to transmogrification, I find the look is a bit outdated for my own character. The older armor models just don't hold a candle to the new ones in the game, and I like for my character to keep up with the latest stuff coming out.

So I thought to myself, "Why not mix it up and make an outfit inspired by the Stormwind Guard?" I imagine this is what it would look like if a member of the Stormwind Guard decided to become a PC instead of an NPC. Very breaking the fourth wall, right? OK, maybe no to that one too ...

Remixing the Stormwind Guard for transmogrificationMost of the items for this transmog outfit are dungeon and raid boss drops that would usually make them easier to farm because of the reliable drop rates. However, because a lot of the key pieces for this outfit are from tier 11, your biggest hurdle will probably be getting groups together to farm newer content for transmog gear. Good luck!

Should you absolutely hate the remixed Stormwind Guard outfit and prefer the classic look, Anne has created a Stormwind Guard transmog guide for purists.
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!
