Look like an NPC - Chief Engineer Lorthander Transmog

Ever since I first came across Chief Engineer Lorthander (a level 69 rare spawn in Netherstorm) I thought it would be so neat to have his weapon. His staff looks just like the Staff of Prehistoria - the "key" that used to be required to open the room to Ironya in Uldaman (pre-dungeon finder). Fortunately, not only is his staff model now obtainable and easy to acquire, his entire outfit can be replicated for transmog with little difficulty.

The "Real" Chief Engineer Lorthander
Mages are the only class that will be able to achieve an almost exact replication of his look due to his shoulder & robe color choice (from the mage tier 5 Tirisfal set). Other cloth wearing classes can pull off an incredibly similar look though with some alternative pieces which I've listed below. The alternative models are exactly the same, the difference is in the coloration. The non-mage armor pieces have a bit more orange, where the mage has more red.

The Mrs. Chief Engineer Lorthander?


  1. Now that is really cool, great work there Euphy!

  2. It's early and I don't have my contacts in yet, I got very excited when I saw the title "Chief Engineer Lefthander Transmog." Yay! Finally, a lefthanded transmog for us lefthanders ... what?

    Oh! Lorthander. Well, never mind I still like it a lot!

    1. Hahaha, maybe the next post I do I'll type only with my left hand in honor of all you lefthanders. :P
