Hunters by the Horde
Tomorrow is JD’s send off from WoW, and after looking at the list on attendees for both Karazhan (on Horde) and ICC (on Alliance) I realized that the Karazhan run would be my only chance to run with one of my favorite Tauren – Navimie!
So first, I posted my epiphany to Twitter:
Okie, so I just dropped a bomb on Laz about transferring toons to Horde, so I can go to Karazhan w/JD @Ancient8 @NavimieDruid #candidcamera
Followed shortly after by a conversation with Laz resulting in:
@NavimieDruid @Ancient8 Yup, looks like just me (Laz has a lot less toons heh), but probably my Hunter. Suggestions of a server?
So, moving my Hunter Vaadaree to Horde…
Later in the evening, during raid breaks, I began to ponder a Hunter race:
Okie, Twitter, I need your help! What Horde race should I faction transfer my Hunter to?
Each race was tossed around in turn, and each was pondered…
I not real fond of the idea of a Goblin, because I seem to have a negative association with Goblins – I enjoy too much listening to them die in PvP. Being happy to hear my own character die seems counterproductive. :/
An Undead is not out of the question, they have good racials, but they are not very attractive…
Blood Elves are great transmog characters, of which I have none at high level.
Tauren seems a solid choice. The female Tauren are growing on me (perhaps because I have so many blogging friends who use theirs as transmog models).
Orcs have great racials for being a Hunter. Hmm…
Then, there was a race in the back of my head that did not come up over Twitter or in other conversation, but I am thinking might be perfect – a Troll. They have great racials. In fact, a Troll could be blue-skinned and therefore keep my Hunter’s name Vaadaree, which I am quite fond of. (In fact, it almost became Effy’s new name when Laz and I left Trollbane to go to Eonar.)
So a few important factors to consider in this change:
- Vaadaree means “blue” – to keep the name, I really should keep the skin color, but a new name is not completely out of the question. I could always make another Draenei. heh
- MUST! Whatever race I choose has to look good in my Lorence Set and the half-Lorence Set Vaa is currently wearing.
- MUST! Obviously, if my Hunter is wearing my Lorence Set, she has to look good running around with Lorence.
Time for a Horde Hunter fashion show!
Vaadaree – Lorence Set
- Head – Brigade Circlet (Optional)
- Shoulders – Dragonstalker’s Spaulders
- Chest – Crimson Mail Hauberk
- Wrists – Hidden
- Hands – Gauntlets of the Dragonslayer
- Waist – Heavy Timbermaw Belt
- Legs – Inferno Forged Leggings
- Feet – Ravager’s Sandals
- Back – Relentless Gladiator’s Cloak of Dominance
- Shirt – Lavender Mageweave Shirt
- Weapon – Windrunner’s Bow
- Weapon – Swarming Sting-Staff
And now to see both that outfit (on the right) and the pieces I have thusfar (on the left) on each of the Horde races.
It is so hard to decide! But I must. And therefore… Troll Vaadaree it is!
Final Thoughts: I have a confession – Vaadaree has been a Troll before. So my final decision my have been a tiny bit biased by that. ><
And also, the more I see those boots, the more I realize they have to go… <jumps back into MogIt>
