Yo Ho! A pirate's life!

I originally made this set for pirate's day in September, but a computer crash and a lot of other stuff going on has hold up my blogging, but better late than not at all, ey? I mean Arrrgh!

What I really like about this set is that it is in a little different color scheme than what you usually see in a pirate transmog, and it is rather easy to obtain as almost all items are BoE world drops, especially if your server has an active Auction House.

Rahda is wearing:
Head - First Mate Hat, BoE world drop
Shoulders - Shadow Council Mantle, BoE world drop
Chest - Mystic's Wrap, BoE world drop
Back - Arakkoa Sage's Shawl, quest reward (Veil Shalas: Signal Fires)
Bracers - Mystic's Bracelets, BoE world drop
Hands - Sage's Gloves, BoE world drop
Waist - Nightwind Belt, BoE sold by different vendors available for both factions
Legs - Astralaan Pants, BoE world drop
Feet - Buccaneer's Boots, BoE world drop
Dagger - Finkle's Skinner, which is no longer obtainable, but there are many daggers with the same model (here)
Off-hand - Accountant's Lantern, ALLIANCE only quest reward (the mosshide job), but there are many options for HORDE too, like the Light-Imbued Lantern which is a quest reward from Turning Yourself in

Electric black & purple cloth set

For some reason I really like making transmog sets with pants rather than with robes/dresses. This set is no exception, it is build around these absolutely amazing pants, Pontiff's Pantaloons of Prophecy, which I fell in love with the first time I saw them! The pants are a part of the recolored Vestments of Transcendence set (recolored version of the tier 2 raid set for priests), that drops in different Burning Crusade Heroics. I ended up using most items from this set, with just a few adjustments. The chest piece I have used, Soulcloth Vest is made by tailors from a rather rare recipe, I looked in the AH with no luck and I was sure that this was the one piece that would stop the collecting of this set. I was saved by a kind and very helpful guild mate, that actually could craft me this, I'm so lucky! <3

Rahda is wearing:
Head - Scintillating Headdress of Second Sight, BoP drop from Shirrak the Dead Watcher in HC Auchenai Crypts
Shoulders - Vestia's Pauldrons of Inner Grace, BoP drop from Cache of the Legion in N/HC The Mechanar
Chest - Soulcloth Vest, BoE made with tailoring
Shirt - Stylish Black Shirt, sold by the alliance vendor Lisbeth Schneider in Stormwind City
Bracers - Light Scribe Bands, BoP drop from Reinforced Fel Iron Chest in HC Hellfire Ramparts
Hands - Black Mageweave Gloves, BoE made with tailoring
Waist - Cord of Belief, BoP drop from Mennu the Betrayer in HC Slave Pens
Legs - Pontiff's Pantaloons of Prophecy, BoP drop from Captain Skarloc in HC Old Hillsbrad Foothills
Feet - Spider Silk Slippers, BoE made with tailoring (or any other piece that don't show)
Staff - Crystalfire Staff, BoP drop from Omor the Unscarred in N Hellfire Ramparts
