When World of Warcraft released Transmogrification in patch 4.3 I can tell you that I was pretty happy, I know there are many out there who rolled their eyes and became pissed being all the old sets of gear they trashed to make room. I do feel sorry for those people and even more so to people who toss away items you no longer can get in-game. I loved the idea of it and when it hit PTR I remember checking it out and was so so happy. I only ever kept tier sets and my ICC gear, the reason I kept it was simply because ICC was the first time I had truly raided in the game.
I would say that I guess you could say I was pretty bored with my choices of Transmog gear. I went with a sort of splash red/blue/black set with the Skull shield, my mage I only went with the level 70 gear which I oddly stay in even up until level 80ish when I started to level. My Death Knight just uses the Death Knight Starting Gear I got to get back at the vendor.
No more boring then just using my ICC gear on my hunter, that all changed a bit ago when I started to look into making my own set, which I call Green Jungle Beast. Now while some people might not like it or say that it’s way too green. It’s no different than some people who go with all Blue for a Shaman, all Red for say a Paladin or all white for a priest.

I want to make a special note here about anyone who might want have this set on their hunters. The bow, Rhok’delar was a quest reward form a random drop from Rag in Molten Core, the item started a quest chain where you had to hunt down elite rare spawns and kill them using your hunter skills with no help what so ever, this includes your pet. This tested your skills and if anyone helps you healing or otherwise the demon would despawn and you had to wait sometimes up to 4 more hours for it to spawn again. This bow was a reward to hunters who show they have the skill, now you could get this bow up to level 80 (it was still pretty hard taking me 3 days to do it) as the chain and starting item were removed in Patch 4.0.1a with the shattering of the world.
For those not so lucky to have done the chain before Cataclysm, your only options would be any green color bow or gun that fits the color set. I’ll leave this one open to you, please feel free to tweet me your set look with the ranged weapon you choose @HunterMastery
Other then the ranged weapon which you can no longer get if you didn’t do the chain before Cataclysm, all the other items you can buy off the Auction House or off a Vendor for Honor or Justice Points. For the random drops, you can simply keep a lookout on the Auction House the Polearm, Ranseur of Hatred might be the hardest one to get because it forms Firelands Trash. If your on a server that’s no longer doing Firelands coming across one for cheap might be hard, 10k I would say would be ideal if you have the gold for it. The weapon isn’t as big a deal but it does look nice simply and green matching. Any green color weapon would match.
