Introducing – “The Visual Roleplay Gear List”

This is a project called “The Visual Roleplay Gear List” me and my partner have been brewing on for some time, in fact we came up with the idea in December 2009. We talked about how we lacked an overview of the different gear sets. Although not hard to find on the forums, all the lists people had made, were text based of course. So in order to see the gear they were referencing, you had to stretch over various Wowhead.com articles and yet, it felt like a lot of effort to put the all the pieces together to view it as a set. This is why we’ve named our site the visual list.

Now after a lot of work with WoW Model Viewer and Wowhead.com, we feel our catalogue is ready to face the internet: http://roleplaygear.wordpress.com/

The categories are as follows:

  • Accessories
  • Character
  • Occupation
  • Robes
  • Seasonal (which is not complete yet, as Wow model viewer is acting up)
  • Stylish Cloth
  • Stylish Leather
  • Stylish Mail
  • Stylish Plate

To give you an idea of how it works, here’s some thumbnails under the category “Character”. If you hover your mouse over the pictures, it will tell you the name of the armor set. Clicking it, will lead you to the respective article, giving you an overview of how hard the set is to get, what level you need to be etc.

Here’s a excerpt from the category “Stylish Mail”

We have a lot more gear sets ready that just needs an article, which we intend to add along the way. We don’t consider this initiative a blog so to speak, as it probably looks more like a database, and hopefully will not compete with the already successful WoW fashion blogs out there, but rather complement their good work.

We’re hoping this can useful to others and that people will enjoy it.

Update 7th of November:

Here’s how the launch turned out, including numbers of clicks and most popular articles during that first day:

I’d call that a successful launch of Roleplaygear.wordpress.com.

    I love it! My friend has a few sets that she has put togeter herself, but I always felt I didn’t have the patience or know how to get one together of my own. Your visual completed sets have inspired me to pick an (easy) one and start farming!

    Haha thanks. We are not as fortunate to be able to make our own clothing in WoW, so we just have to do with the scraps we find around in the game ;)

    And under the heading “ridiculously insignificant yet somehow irksome” — how come I’m a WordPress.com user and I have my gravitar and all my blogs and blog comments on my blog use my gravitar, bla bla bla…

    And when I comment on your blog – I get the geeky “not a member” fake icon/avatar!?!? Sooooooo embarrasing!! O_o

    We are aware that the site is down, it’s completely out of our hands and all we can do is anxiously wait for it to be back up. Believe me, we are already stressing about it, and the timing is ridiculously bad.

    We have no idea for how long it will be down, we were hoping it was fixed this morning, but no :(

    I have had your website roleplaygear.wordpress.com on my tab list for months and yesterday I tried to go to it and its down. :( Hopefully just a glitch from so many hits and it wont be down for good. One of the best sites for stylish gear list.
