Transmog: Love Is in the Air

WoWable has a fun new thing going on: a transmog contest! This edition’s theme is the Love Is in the Air, an in-game version of Valentine’s Day.

I had a tough time with this until I was doodling around in Suramar on my arcane mage. I’ve long loved the star-filled under-canopies that some of the trees have in Suramar City, but for some reason I hadn’t noticed before that the stars slowly rotate. (Manna from the heavens, almost literally. They rotate! It’s a WoW planetarium! Or plant-etarium…?)

The stars in the under-canopies alone made me love the City. And as if that’s not enough, Suramar City has so much more to offer: interesting buildings and streets, parks, intricate textiles, little squares, shops and residences, plus canals and gondolas. It’s an intriguing place to wander around, but the rotating (did I say already that they rotate?!) starfield canopies made the City go to the top of my romantic places list.

My screencap is from a small area in the outer rim of the City in the south west. (I haven’t noticed whether it has a name. It’s an outer edge of the Lunastre Estate.) It’s not a park or garden or anything fancy, just a widening of the promenade. However, it happened to have the right combination of elements that appeal to me: the gorgeous Suramar paving stones, lots of flowerbeds and bushes, those plants that look like ornate lanterns, hovering planters, the trees with the rotating star canopies, and a sunset (as it happened) in the background, as well as palanquins that look just right for two people to have a ride in. Just perfect for a mage moonlighting as a singing telegram for the holiday to stop and rest in between delivering messages and flowers.

(I’m having trouble with Wowhead’s Dressing Room, but as soon as it behaves, I’ll add the link to the set. Ok: here, finally, is the singing telegram set in the Dressing Room.)

    That is a wonderful spot you found there. Suramar is so breathtakingly beautiful. The transmog is very adorable, I was tempted to chose that colour too 🙂 Sweet!

      Thanks! I love all of Suramar. Sometimes the colors can be a little intense (the orange and rust red trees) or dim (the City) but all of the design is fabulous.

        N’aww, dedicated to your readers, I like that. Here is a manual like as well as a “normal” one 😉

    Awesome! I like how you picked a “normal” place on the lovely city of Suramar (which is lovely everywhere) and just noticed the small little things . Thank you for your entry!
