I never thought anyone would buy those store helms...

But I was wrong.

Moo was happily showing off the new helms from the store - he really liked them and bought all 3.  Moopie, of all people!  He doesn't give a poop about transmog but he bought those helms... hey I dunno, maybe he really DID like them :)

They look a little different on a tauren.  But here are some pics - you be the judge!


Jewel of the Firelord.  You horny cow, you.  I thought I liked this the best, but actually it's the one below.  I wonder, what does this name mean?  I suspected it looked like those dragon horns - does this mean that Ragnaros had a dragon consort?


The Hood of Hungering Darkness is my favourite, I think.  Not easy to get helms which look good on a tauren, but I like this one and can't wait to get a mog for it!  I think I might buy this one.


This one (Crown of Eternal Winter) is Moo's favourite.  I looks different on a tauren - it doesn't have the skull look like it does on other humanoids, and I think it's very noble looking when it doesn't have that effect... but I wouldn't buy it, personally.


What do you think of them?  I think most people wouldn't get them - but I could be wrong! I mean MOO of all people buying a vanity LOOKS item...

I can't find any mog that works with the Hood of Hungering Darkness in leather.  If anyone can point me some suggestions, it would be welcome!

  1. Of all the three, the only one I really like is the Crown of Eternal Winter but only the crown effect, I really don't like the skull part. If it was just a frosty crown I would buy it in a heartbeat.

    1. I dunno, all hats look silly on cows!

    2. WHAAAAAAT! No! The Sailor Moon hat was amazing! I also loved the Thor-type helm from Cata, the one that matches the electric blue feather shoulders.

  2. I love the crown and agree with Z! The horns are awesome too!

    1. I liked them at first, but I do so love cowls and hoods!

  3. I wouldn't buy them - not for the price they're asking. It seems a bit much for three small items which will only really work with very, very few transmog sets.
    If they were obtainable in-game instead, I'd totally go after them, but I don't think they're worth the money.

    I am happy to see it looks different on a tauren, though! To be honest, for the money it costs, I would expect it to have a different skull for each race, but maybe that's just me.
    I am warming (no pun intended) to the jewel of the firelord, though.

  4. Oh my! That first shot is one good looking horny Tauren. I'll bet that helm looks better on a Tauren than anyone else!

  6. Nice to see how all these helms look on Tauren!

    Initially I thought I liked the Jewel of the Firelord the best. As I've thought more about it, though, I'd rather just go farm Rag1.0 for the mail Crown of Destruction or BRD for the cloth Circle of Flame if I want a fire hat. If one of my leather or plate wearers decides that she MUST have a fire hat, well, then I might get this.

    I'm not a fan of the Hood of Hungering Darkness, but then, I'm not much of a fan of hoods in general.

    I like the look of the Crown of Eternal Winter without the skull effect on... and I don't like it at all with it. I was wondering how they'd get the skull effect to fit over a Tauren profile -- and I'm rather pleased to see that a Tauren face just turns blue and spooky, but not skully. Okay, maybe I can see the Underpowered Death Knight wearing this helm. Not sure I want to pay the same amount of dollars as my monthly sub for it, though.

    1. Things always look different on cows! But I must be the only one who doesn't like the Eternal Winter one - the skull face blue face thing is too creepy!

    2. Aye, that skull face too creepy for me, too. It's such a pretty crown without it, though... *sigh*

  7. You know, I didn't really care for the Jewel of the Firelord until seeing it on a tauren. That looks pretty cool!

    I'd never buy any of them myself, but I have a couple friends that are loving them. :)

    1. Glad to see someone is buying it!

  8. The only one I've seen so far on my server is the Crown of Eternal Winter, which I think is my favourite out of them all. But none of them appeal to me enough for me to pay the £10 they cost each. To be honest I'm still in shock over the price as I had expected £3-5!

    1. New ways for Blizz to make money I guess! I'm still wondering if I should get one.
