Talking with moggers around Saurfang, their reasons for choosing what they are wearing seem to be divided sharply along PVE and PVP lines, with PVEers finding what they like the look of the most, usually within the restraints of their budgets or time, and sticking with it, while PVPers use transmogging as a genuine strategy on the battlefield, with the intention of misleading an ill-prepared enemy into thinking they have poor gear, then giving said enemy a genuinely nasty surprise upon engagement. One particular 'mogger saying to me that as a squishy caster, or any ranged class for that matter, it does not pay to stand out, as it makes you a more attractive target with your shiny robes of awesomeness and Apostle of Argus mogged staff. I can see the logic of this, and as I am not a PVPer, it's something that I will just have to take their word for.
In the wider community too, there are scores of fan sites devoted, some exclusively, to transmogging. Seemingly overnight they cropped up, analysing every piece of armor and every weapon, every pair of boots, every off hand item, nothing escapes scrutiny, and looking around for the mog look that is right for you, makes for probably the most bizarre form of window shopping your humble authour has ever experienced.
Without doubt, I am a card-carrying citizen of Transmogrificaton Nation, having devoted considerable time and resources getting my main and all my alts "mogged up". Mostly sets that were available to be crafted on one of my alts or another, and most, but not all, were fairly easy or inexpensive to make (My Paladin's mog set was a pig to make, my Monk's DPS set took some farming too). Torchsong here is a work in progress. Having said that, I am constantly now on the lookout for better sets to make or hunt down, and would love to hear suggestions from you, the reader as to how I can make my hunter look pretty fly (for a Draenei).
I guess the last word on this matter, goes to Keydar, creator of the brilliant Dark Legacy Comics, who once envisioned this terrifying scenario: http://www.darklegacycomics.com/364.html
So are you 'mogging mad? Or 'mogging meh? Are you waiting for the right look to come along or have you jumped into 'mogging feet first?
