Making a steampunk-esque hunter. Suggestions on mounts, pets, transmog, etc?

The chopper.
You can ride a friggin bike that has exhaust pipes the size of a cannon.
Can't get steampunkier than that.

Funny you say that -- I was just coming into the topic to happily announce my purchase of a chopper! I could've waited until I was a high enough level engineer to make it myself, but I found an engineer that was online and I provided mats so it wouldn't have cost any less to make it myself (outside of a 200g tip I gave for him running all over the place and helping me with ways to come up with enough titansteel).

I looooooooooove it already, even though I'm still in my butt-ugly hunter heirlooms until 40 when I can mog 'em to something a little less awful looking.

The chopper makes the best sound ever when jumping.
VRRRM! VRRM! Just... Steampunk to mad.
The flying machine was also mentioned, make sure to get the turbocharged one for MOAR SMOKE!

The ulduar set kinda has that vibe with the helmet and whatnot, couple guns in there have it for sure.

pretty plebeian concept tbh, doubt you'll be able to put something better than 4/10 bro and that's optimistic

don't mix resolutions


This. The only minimally half-decent looking steampunkish thing is one of the mage tiers (from DS, I believe?), and even then if you mog it you lose points for being a fashionless pleb that just uses ready-to-go transmog sets instead of combining his own unique combination.
Every other "steampunk" mogs look horrible, absolutely no exceptions.

Accept that WoW's universe is not very steampunkish (if at all) and don't create out-of-universe mogs, you'll only make yourself look bad and stick out like a sore thumb.

We already have Yhi, don't steal his gimmick.

You need one of the diving-helmets to be a real steampunk astronaut. Think about it, the diving helm would have been what VIctorian spacemen would have adapted for breathing in space.

You can't even comprehend how badly I need a Sky Golem. I really like that gun, but I think I might be looking more for a futuristic-looking sniper type thing, since my guy's a bounty hunter.
