Hunter Transmog: Alliance Rifleman 2.0

My first “Alliance Rifleman” transmog was based on the vanilla hunter PvP gear. The problem with that one is unless you’re high ranked (or earned rank 9+ in vanilla), it’s unavailable to you.  This new one, however, is available to anyone who builds a Dwarven Bunker in their garrison. Even though it looks like plate, it can be worn by any armor class. It just so happens that it looks pretty badass on a dwarf. Sorry, Hordies, this one is Alliance only (except the gun and goggles).

Head: Steamworker’s Goggles
Shoulder: Stormwind Shoulderguards
Chest: Stormwind Chestguard
Tabard: Stormwind Tabard (new version)
Belt: Stormwind Belt
Legs: Stormwind Leggings
Boots: Stormwind Boots
Gloves: Stormwind Grips
Weapon: Shrediron’s Shredder (Level 3)

I’ve put this set together in a Wowhead item comparison so you can quickly view it on other races in 3D (click the little triangle above the item icons).

Hunter Transmog: Alliance Rifleman

I have a soft spot for this armor set. Back in vanilla, I spent a great deal of my time PvPing and I seriously lusted over this set. It was so prestigious that I remember only 1 or 2 hunters on my realm even had the full set since you needed to be rank 14 to get it all. The highest I ever got was rank 10 (Lieutenant Commander), and I played a lot of PvP. To give you an idea how much, I had about 75,000 honorable kills before Burning Crusade even came out. So you can imagine how much one would have to play to get rank 13 or 14 back then. I’m skeptical there were any rank 14s who didn’t account share at least a little bit.

Anyway, when patch 2.0 came along before Burning Crusade they let everyone buy this stuff with honor points. That short period between 2.0 and Burning Crusade was a fun time to be a hunter. Arcane Shot had just gotten buffed to scale with AP (before this it was a static 183 damage… I’m not even joking) and it was obscenely powerful. An instant cast ability which crit for 1500 or so back then was insane. Throw 2500 damage Aimed Shots on top of that and clothies didn’t stand a chance. Health pools averaged around 4k at that time.
