    Every Transmog Idea Fails

    I've been trying to find a transmog for my BE Hunter to use. As of this moment, its just a hodgepodge of different armor sets, and I rarely use him to RP because I can't find one I like. And then I do! I'm excited! And to make matters better, I have 2 items of it, 2 can be made! And here comes the two parts that make it a failure:

    1) The transmog I saw doesn't have gloves which is somewhat of a problem, but alright, I can find some.
    2) The pants come from two quests. One in Nagrand, the other in Shadowmoon. And my hunter has done both back when BC was current. And I should mention that the one in Shadowmoon you can do as Aldor or Scryer, but if you switch you can't do the quest.

    Here's what the transmog looks like btw: http://www.wowhead.com/compare?items...1218.-18:14617

    Now, the pants have several look-alikes but they dont fit with the rest of the transmog. And I've talked to Blizzard twice about it and they've said, "Sorry we can't go back that far in time and bring them up to ya." (Tho I have heard they can depending on the person) My question is in several parts:

    A) Should I give up trying to get in touch with Blizzard or should I keep trying?
    B) Should I reroll another Hunter (Which I do not want to do)?
    C) Should I find another transmog? And if so do you have a transmog to recommend?

    I had this exact issue regarding a Plate Chest on my warrior, luckily I was able to find a hidden item that was exact same model, but I feel for you. If you really want that certain look and you dont have much invested I'd say reset.

    keep trying. and say your willing to pay 500 or 1000 gold if they reset the quest. so it is not about the money.

    and get the mogit addon. it will greatly improve your search for the perfect transmog item.

    That's a swanky ass transmog I must say.

    You're best bet is to go to Icy Veins Transmog Page. You'll be able to find any (if available) alternative item pieces that you can use. You may even find some other pieces you like more.

    I can't emphasize this enough. MogIt is a godsend for people like me that just can't wear the same thing for long. It's very easy to use and you can save sets, and even link them in chat to other people with the addon.

    not to go crazy OT with this, but wowhead item comparison links never work for me. not sure why this is.

    if blizzard keeps telling you it's not possible to go that far back, it's probably true. if your option B is making a new hunter over finding a different look, do B. i myself would just squash my dream of transmog perfection and look for something that works for me

    Tried that in my second ticket, but maybe raising the amount might work

    For me either, it's frustrating to no end.

    styvan01, if starting over a new character doesn't sound like much fun what kind of look would you like to have? I guess this was my favorite was this, but it's not at all swanky if that's what you were going for.

    Also, MogIt is definitely awesome.

    Want something unique and interesting yet easy to put together. Like the set I linked, that was an easy set, only one piece needed a dungeon. Or my priests set, which I put together, all quests rewards except for the chest piece which was a tailor item. And he looks magnificent.

    Oh and they got back to me on round 3 of the ticket which surprised me. Must be a slow day. And thats a negatory

    The correct answer is c). I would recommend the twill set but anything is better than bothering Blizzard with something they've told you twice they won't (not can't because they could if they wanted to) do.

    And heres my priest which I am proud of from the idea I got him from. http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...6rric/advanced

    The idea I based him off of: http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__...nce_Priest.jpg

    Twill set? NVM I feel like an idiot

    And I have had people tell they have done it for them before hence why I kept "bothering".

    Go to icy-veins.com
    Go to transmog and click on hunter item models
    Go to Mail Hands and Mail Legs
    Find models that fit
    Test them on Wowhead's compare tool
    Pick the best fit

    Trying to find perfect transmog with all the restrictions or just lack of properly matching pieces is an exercise in futility and extreme frustration. Even if they didn't exist, there are items which match existing wearable gear that only are seen on NPCs and then there;s the whole "long deleted unique quest item from BC that was the only thing that matched" issue. Perfect transmogs can't exist so you need to settle for what is good enough. Colour may be slightly off, things might clip occasionally, etc. but its as good as you can get it.

    My advice is to find something else. If you're after recommendations, here's mine:

    Try this:
    Pants: Gronnstalker's Leggings
    Hands: Gronnstalker's Gloves
    Boots: Gronnstalker's Boots
    Chest: Carapace of Grim Visions.
    + rest you already have.

    It matches with what you already have.

    Try and keep the theme of your race you go for. For example, I did this with my troll hunter:

    That does look nice! Wow, if it looks good on my hunter, then I think I might have a new transmog
