OpenRaid transmogrification contest!

Time for a shameless plug, but I wrote down all the details for you here. Have a look if you're interested!

Shattrath Divided: Scryers — Plate

WoW Insider is holding a transmogrification contest where the entrants are supposed to design an outfit around a single peace of gear. As I submitted my entry which is titled "Czar of the Sporeggar" (can you guess what the theme item is?) I was reminded of the Mogolympic opening ceremonies.

The subsequent Scryer scandal and barring wasn't enough to make me forgo my allegiance to them, however. So, think of this as a spiritual Scryer emissary (I realize it's ironic I've chosen a draenei to model).

Flavor text aside, the Exalted plate is one of my favorite plate sets. It's one of the rarest BOE sets out there so be sure to check out the page and comments on WoW RPGear for helpful tips and information.

Helmet of the Steadfast Champion
Warbringer's Spaulders
Exalted Harness
Scryers Tabard
Gauntlets of the Skullsplitter
Exalted Girdle
Exalted Legplates
Exalted Sabatons

With the tabard on top, only the sleeves are visible, so there are a couple of alternatives that you could settle for.

Chest alternatives:
Breastplate of Despair (the design on the sleeves is practically identical to the Exalted plate, just a lighter color hue)

Waist alternatives:
Hevna's Eye Socket
Girdle of the Mountains
Stormforged Belt

I don't recommend using more than one of these pieces at the same time lest it look cluttered, unless it's the Carapace of Imbibed Flame with Girdle of the Mountains, which seem to go together surprisingly well.

Weapon suggestions:

Skunkworks Sword Skunkworks Sword Sun-Forged Cleaver Sun-Forged Cleaver
Elementium-Edged Scalper Elementium-Edged Scalper Doom's Edge Doom's Edge
Scimitar of the Sirocco Scimitar of the Sirocco Coldstone Cutlass Coldstone Cutlass
