BRB, Diablo

Sorry guys, I'm ALL KINDS OF into Diablo 3 at the moment which I'm sure most other people are. So, naturally I haven't been updating here about WoW...because I haven't been IN wow. 

Thoughts on Diablo:

This is my first time actually playing a Diablo game. I briefly played 1 and 2 for maybe all of 5 MINUTES. I am really enjoying D3 though. I originally made a witch doctor, which was fun but not really a playstyle a drunk like me was looking for at the moment. So, about 10 levels in I decided I wanted a melee class. I love melee. So I made a Barbarian and I got her up to almost 60 now, She's pretty damn fun and I enjoyed bashing heads and generally not giving a fuck. Then, I decided to sample a different flavor. I made my first Wizard and HOLY SHIT they are so much fun. Seriously, it makes playing my barbarian seem like a boring shart fest. Anyway. His name is Namida (Japanese for tears) because I was listening to this song: 

It's kind of my inspirational song at the moment >_> 



And really, when I get my hands on that pink dye, it's going on EVERYTHING. 

So check out this sword, it's really amazing. I shat myself when I saw it:

Okay so....first of all, it's a legendary. Secondly, this was way more bitchin' than what I had. Thirdly the description uses the word FANTASTICAL, Which is probably one of my most favorite words. Fourthly, Unicorn Smiles (Fuck yeah!), Bright Rainbow Colors ( FUCK YEAH!), Shooting Star Wishes (OH JESUS CHRIST YEAH) and Teddy Bear Giggles (FUCKKKKKKKKKK YEAHHHHH!)


I will never get rid of this thing. Ever.

Shaman Transmog: The Elements

I've made two sets for this post. I actually was requested to make a set for my friend Paul (Boulderface) and his character is also modeling for these sets. YAY orc models. I've created one set for fire and one for water with red and blue colors.

Element of water set: (Blue)
This water set is mostly pieces of the Skyshatter set, which has some lovely blues, but there are some other elements mixed in as well.  The belt and the shoes you can feel free to change since they are really nothing special (You can barely see the shoes) so feel free to substitute anything that matches in case you don't feel like farming these. :)

Head: Mask of the howling storm ( Mana-Tombs )
Shoulders: Skyshatter Shoulderpads  from a vendor ( Tydormu )
Chest: Skyshatter Chestguard ( same vendor as shoulders)
Waist: Naturalist's Preserving Cinch ( Black Temple ) 
Legs: Heroes' Earthshatter legguards (  Vault of Archavon 10p )
Hands: Skyshatter Gloves ( same vendor as shoulders )
Feet: Defender Boots ( BoE world drop )
Axe: Frost Bite ( HORDE ONLY. Bought from frostwolf supply officers for  175 honor )
Shield: Lost Pavise of the Blue Flight ( ICC 10 )

Element of fire set: (Red)
Good thing about this set (aside from the fact that it is such a lovely reddish orange color, is the fact that there are some very easy pieces to get here. Ragnaros is a very easy one, and whenever I run molten core, I usually see this helm drop. Secondly we have AQ, another easy one, and a leather working piece. Other things you may need some friends for unless you're an awesome solo artist. 

Head: Crown of Destruction ( Ragnaros, Molten Core)
Shoulders: Valorous Earthshatter Spaulders ( Bought with: Mantle of the Lost Protector - Naxxramas )
Chest: Stormcallers Hauberk ( AQ )
Waist: Girdle of the Dauntless Conquerer ( TOC heroic )
Legs: Valorous Eathshatter Leggards ( Vault of Archavon normal 25 )
Hands: Thalassian Ranger Gauntlets (Sunwell Plateau )
Feet: Hurricane Boots ( Leatherworking )
Axe: Hellscream Slicer ( TOC normal 25 )
Sheild: Pulsing Spellshield (Ulduar normal 10 )

Commissions and Drunk Orcs.

Sorry for the long absence guys. I had my computer crap out on me. I needed a new power supply but unfortunately for me I ran into some massive money issues (still happening, actually) and I just couldn't afford a new one for a while. Luckily a good friend Ryan commissioned me to do a painting which gave me the money I needed to get a new one. SO NOW I'M BACK.

So, since I've been having a lot of money issues and to supplement my ever shrinking income I've decided to start taking commissions. I'll probably put a page up on this blog dedicated to it so if there's ever a chance you'd want to commission me to do any sort of art, wow related or not, you can easily do so.

ANYWAYS. I drew a picture for my friend and guild mate Paul (Boulderface). It was pretty fun and I giggled at it a bit. I also made a really shitty version to give to him at first because I wanted to fuck with him and be like "HERE U GO I WORKED ON DIS ALL NIGHT N I THINK IT LOOKS GUD, MAN, PAY ME 20 DOLLARS NOW"

(This is really the epitome of my artistic talent.)

SORRY I drew a Orc ding dong. God sakes, shield your eyeballs.

So here is the actual finished product:


Cloth Transmog: Violet Sorceress

I make a lot of mail and plate sets so why not do a cloth one? I asked twitter what I should make and  Dee over at Dancing Runes suggested I do a cloth set. Cloth has some beautiful robes, I decided, however to do a two piece and I think it turned out pretty well. Whenever I do a transmog I try not to use higher end pieces from current content, because I want my transmogs to be available to almost everyone. So let's get into how this set is made!

Head - Cowl of Malefic Repose (ICC 10H)
Shoulders - Shoulders of Ruinous Senility (ICC 10H)
Chest - Barbaric Cloth Vest (BoE world drop. Most frequently drops in Wailing Caverns)
Legs - Kilt of Untreated Wounds (ICC 10H)
Feet - Boots of the Infernal Coven (Karazhan drop)
(you could probably substitute a lot of other boots since you can barely see them anyway)
Hands - Hallowed Handwraps (Shattered Halls drop)
Belt - High Councillor's Sash (BoE world drop)
Staff - Staff of Infinite Mysteries (Karazhan drop)
Cloak (Optional) - Periwinkle Cloak (Throne of the Tides normal drop)

We have 3 peices here which will probably be most difficult to get, which are the legs, helm and shoulders which are recolors of warlock tier 10. Everything else doesn't seem too bad and we even have some BoE's on here (though they are world drops which can still be very difficult to get). I hope you enjoy this set as much as I do. I'd really like to set this up on my priest because I love the deep colors and the rich bright and dark purples.
