Playing Dress Up: Bank Alt

April 14, 2010

Recently, I have come across a few blogs that go over outfit ideas for your characters based on professions, season, etc. The blogs I found are all in my blogroll under ‘Fashion’.

I love making my characters look good. I spend hundreds of gold in the barbers, and I’m constantly browsing for interesting looking items for my Rogue. So, I thought I’d start a new series over here, “Playing Dress Up”. I would like to dress up my bank alt a bit, to start, who is currently a level 15 Night Elf Rogue I stopped levelling back in TBC, so these items will be useable between levels 1 and 15. I’ve stuck to cloth items so your class isn’t limited at all, and the look I was going for was ‘smart/classy’, after all, this is a bank alt not a mailbox dancer 😉 If you’d like to see the images a little bigger, simply click on them.

I’ll start with 2 outfits which are fairly commonly used. The Tuxedo made by tailors, with the hat and the pimp stick from Dalaran fishing dailies. Followed by the Lovely Black Dress except I’ve covered up a little underneath.

If a set cannot be used at level 1, I have said so, if you don’t want to level that much, then feel free to find a different item in place of the level requiremented one. Where I have included 2 items in the same slot, it is the same model, one might be easier to get for you than the other.

1. Tuxedo Shirt/White Tuxedo Shirt + Tuxedo Pants/Black Tuxedo Pants + Tuxedo Jacket + Diamond-tipped Cane + Battered Jungle Hat + Recruit’s Boots.

2. Lovely Black Dress + Stylish Black Shirt + Neophyte’s Pants.

Now, I’ve had a browse through Wowhead and the following outfits, in my opinion, suit the smart/casual auction house banker. This can be easily mix and matched if you wish to. Being for a low level bank alt, they are nothing overly extravagant but they will do.

3. This set requires level 15: Aboriginal Vest + White Linen Shirt + Acolyte’s Pants + Journeyman’s Boots + Frayed Belt/Tattered Cloth Belt

4. This set requires level 13: Barbaric Cloth Vest + White Linen Shirt + Apprentice’s Pants + Squire’s Boots + Frayed Belt/Tattered Cloth Belt

5. This set requires level 10: Darkmoon Vest + Formal White Shirt + Neophyte’s Pants + Recruit’s Boots + Ancestral Belt

6. This set requires level 15: Whispering Vest + Orange Mageweave Shirt + Apprentice’s Pants + Journeyman’s Boots + Journeyman’s Belt

7. This set requires level 5: Light Magesmith Robe + Stylish Green Shirt + Frayed Shoes + Disciple’s Sash

8. This set requires level 4: Violet Robes + Bright Yellow Shirt + Acolyte’s Shoes + Thin Cloth Belt/Light Cloth Belt

9. Acolyte’s Robe + White Swashbuckler’s Shirt + Frayed Shoes + Thin Cloth Belt/Light Cloth Belt (though it looks good without a belt too)

PS. I recommend you check the Wowhead links for availability of the item, a lot of the things I used can be obtained from Thomas Yance in Old Hillsbrad. Of course, there are low level starting zone items too which aren’t Bind on Pickup and can be traded between characters and the neutral auction house if you wish to.

PPS. I may have missed things because there is a lot to go through, if you find an item you feel is great for a bank alt, feel free to leave a comment.

    Hi Jaedia,

    I always liked dressing up my bank alts as well, and for my current bank alt i’ve gone for the sexy look.

    She’s a lvl 2 priest, so it’s all low-lvl items:
    Recruits Boots, Black Tuxedo Pants, Red Swashbuckler’s Shirt (Chest), no (shirt)-slot item, Battered Jungle Hat.

    Occasionally i swap the swashbucklers shirt for the red lumberjack’s shirt i i feel like a non-sexy look for a few days.

      Hehe, I love the Swashbuckler’s Shirts.. hmm.. your outfit with Black Mageweave Pants perhaps? 😉

    Very nice. The Silver-thread Robe is a head turner as well. Some times my human warrior will wear it while she is in town. She always gets noticed.

      Ah nice, sleeveless version of the Robes of Arugal? I’ll remember this for a future ‘Playing Dress Up’!

    Nice information. The noble garden event got me to send my bank alt. the tuxedo shirt and pants and I was wondering what else I could I get him.

    Noble’s Monocle and Antique Silver Cufflinks (from fishing dailies, I was lucky enough to get both that way but sold the monocle).

    Tarnished Silver Necklace (stacks in lots of 20, my banker is like Mr. T :p)

    My lvl 1 undead male bank alt’s set

    I chose those boots because they are one of the few items you can enchant with Minor Run Speed and use at lvl 1, great for running between the bank/mailbox/AH hehe.

      Ohh I forgot the Haliscan stuff! I’m impressed, looks awesome 😛

    I also take pride in my bank chars’ appearances. Before guildbanks I also controlled the guild bank char and had him fairly pimped out with a tux, the brewfest hat (purple of course) and shoes and a few other toys.

    I love my bank alt. I love looking at other bank alts. I think it is humurous and fun. My bank alt (while I could have earned the Noble title I am sure) is a Level 2 Warlock.

    Unable to log on atm, I know she has lots of achievements but I dont have the accurate count. She wears a unique outfit that matches all the way to her hair! She looks sort of pirateish and wears loafers (standard Belf Warlock starting shoes lol).

    I would like to do a post similar to this and throw up a screenshot of her and her glorious ship-tanned body haha.

    She also has one piece of clothing from almost every holiday so she can celebrate with everyone else 🙂

    PS. I love clothes in wow in general not just for a bank alt.

      Definitely, that’s why I’ve called this a series 😉

    I love seeing how other people “play dress up” with their characters.

    My bank alt, a level 22 warrior, is currently wearing the Draenei Acolyte Robe + White Swashbuckler Shirt + Burnished Mail Belt + Bloodspattered Shield + basic 1H sword. The colors of the shield match the colors of the dress really quite nicely.

    Thanks also for pointing out the Light Magesmith Robe. I’d thought that the blue and green coloration of that style of robe was only available from Alliance quest rewards. Now that I know that it’s available as a drop, I can go farm for it XD

    Hm… I do dress up my bank alts, but I usually just settle for a dress of some sort (no shirts to flesh out the look) or Tuxedo pants with any variety of shirt on.

    I especially like look #7 – very bright and springy!
