Biggest gear set collection is on sale

#1 » Post by Liqueur » 07 Nov 2014 12:14

Hello folks,

The Halloween Costume Contest from last month has inspired me to share my gear collection with you all. I worked quite a bit to get the items, but also to prepare them for this post, so enjoy!
But first, a few words about them so you know what you’re looking at.

All of the sets are from classic WoW, mostly random drops. All uncommon. I separated them according to gear type (leather, cloth, mail and plate in this order) and within that they are arranged in alphabetical order. The basic sets contain these items:
shoulder/chest/belt/bracers/gloves/pants/feet – so they contain 7 pieces of gear each. I mentioned extra items after each gear set name, these can be: head/cloak/weapon/robe.

I mostly picked these extra items according to personal taste, wether I find them good looking or not, but some sets are missing extra pieces either because I couldn’t find them before the basic set was complete, or the sets don’t have them altogether. Some gear sets have both tunics and robes as chest items, in those cases I only took one screenshot with either one of the chest items, depending which one I liked more.

I am also including screenshots of one of my guild vaults, where I keep all these items. The model I used is my level 1 mage, Anemic. Most items aren’t soulbound. A few sets are in the bank of my second paladin, Gummybear. They are the first few sets I completed, before I realized I won’t have enough space for more sets if I make them all soulbound. One set I have on Liqueur, with additional items that will be mentioned. Another screenshot shows the bank and inventory of another alt that I use for collecting these sets. The items you see there are incomplete gear sets or just cool looking weapons I put aside.

Some of the gear sets are similar to each other or have the same item models, but each item is unique and matched to its own gear set. They also give off different feelings, some of them are cool, elegant, sexy, pretty etc. They also match different classes or personalities.

I used 2 addons to achieve the look for the Dressing Room that you see on the screenshots. CloseUp is for the wardrobe specifically with several features, while MoveAnything allowed me to extend the size for better quality screenshots.

Alright, boring introduction over, here are the screenshots, I hope you’ll enjoy them.

Thanks for taking the time to go through all the screenshots. I'm curious tho to know which sets you liked the most, if you have any favourites or which ones you didn't like, and why. You're also free to ask any questions (for example "y u no have a life") and such.

looking nice, too bad people won't see you wear those ingame, because they will become soul bound, thus making it unable to deposit in guild vault
but still
nice

I do have a complaint to make.... since my PC is not nasa PC, loading so many pics at the same time, kinda freezes my browser a bit... could you perhaps hide each of them in a spoiler like in araj's signature?
each picture in a separated spoiler? D:

Thank you for all the feedback, it's really nice to see hard work being so appreciated ^^

@Rag, unfortunately I can't help regarding where each set/item is from, because I simply don't remember :-s and unfortunately websites are just as useless, as their information isn't about WotLK anymore.
As I mentioned before, they are all random world drops. So basically the best location to farm them would be high level classic dungeons, and even trash mobs from classic raids.
That's also how I started gathering these sets, while actually farming other things, for instance the Insane title. For that, I had to do endless Stratholme, Scholomance, Dire Maul and other such runs. During this my style was to loot EVERYTHING. I'd vendor trash, sell useful stuff on the AH, and eventually gather all gear pieces on an alt and select the ones I liked, and start looking for the missing pieces from each set. Farming them directly would be truly insane :)
It also helps a lot if you check the AH from time to time for the last few items, they are usually very cheap since we don't have Cata and transmog.

Speaking of transmog - I'd be the richest person if (theoretically) the server ever went Cataclysm :D

@Bluebell, the eyepatch is part of the Swashbuckler's set, which unfortunately can't be clearly seen on the model (she's Gummybear with the few sets, not the actual model who's hair I picked specifically for the many sets, so her hair remained the original way and covered most head items, the patch especially). I re-used the eyepatch on Liq's set just for the badass look, but for the Buccaneer's one I went for the showoff head item instead :D

@Arraj, I think so too, I like their simplicity :)

@Luster, unfortunately I can't do that, it would be too much clicking :( while creating the thread I thought of showing just the links, but imagine people having to open 70 links one by one... having them separately hidden would be almost as bad. However, I hope the change I made will make it a bit easier.
Since everyone's with their character list:
Liqueur ~ level 80 Blood Elf Paladin (PvE Ret/PvP Holy)
Caffeine ~ level 80 Undead Warrior (Fury/Prot)
Narcotic ~ level 80 Undead Priest (Disc/Shadow)

One may wonder about the point of collecting all of those items. But, one could wonder the same about any form of collection. The impressive side is revealed in the sheer volume and discipline found in the collection. Good job.

These are my favorites, but nothing is absolute.

Wolf Rider's set, Shadow Council set, Elegant set, Ornate set, Ebonhold set, and Warleader's set.
