Now, because I was on the ball back when I first put this plate transmog set together, I went and selected Exceptional Crystal-Plated Greatbelt as the belt, despite the fact that it’s probably the hardest iteration of that belt model to get. If you like the look, save yourself some grief and trawl through the alternates on Wowhead.

Okay, so this started life as a golden paladin transmog but, uh, somehow it’s less Jamie Lannister and more “I have a chandelier on my head and I am without shame.”

I’ll admit, though, I’m frustrated about the lack of consistency in the shades of gold. The boots, for example, work on a dwarf because of her shorter stature, but when the taller races are in play I’m not sure the proportions still work. I’m also not 100% about  Vendor - Gold  Protector of Frigid Souls. Ugh.

Anyone have any better ideas? Let me know in the comments.

So again, there’s something a little unfair about tagging an outfit as “Shaman-friendly” when the model is carrying around a hulking great bow in all the example images. But apart from that — and, let’s face it, finding a replacement by way of a large bronze stick with spikes coming out of it isn’t especially hard — this mail transmog set is free of class-specific and faction-specific limitations, thank heavens for that.Mail Transmog - Banded Armor - Back

Quest Reward Wolfsfur Greatcloak (Horde Only)

Okay, apart from that one.

The cloak is a quest reward from Frostfire Ridge, a zone that stubbornly insists on being the stomping ground of the Horde. If you’re Alliance and Durotan’s not willing to give you the time of day, or you’re a Hordie whose already quested through Frostfire Ridge because, well, who hasn’t these days, you’re out of luck.

What can I say, kids? Better luck next time.

Have you ever seen that movie, the one with the muscular, bronzed Adonis decked in animal skins, an enchanted sword at his side and a cadre of tamed attack dinosaurs at his back? You probably haven’t, because it is awful and also I made it up, but if you had, you’d know the main character dressed something like this.

It’s a little bit gladiator and a little bit walking fashion disaster. It’s the second of my series of transmog sets intended to be skimpy on both male and female toons and is a great choice if you’re the sort of person who likes wrestling dragons with your bare hands.

For a hint of extra gladitorial badassery, check out the covered face helm the Wrath of the Lich King Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Gaze of the Somber Keeper.

Cloth Transmog: Heroes’ Frostfire Shoulderpads (Alliance Mage)

Sorry, boys. This dress is a hot mess on male toons. If you don’t like it, write to Blizzard and ask for — no, demand — equal opportunity sexiness.

And the persnickety “Mage’s Only” sticker once again rears its ugly head. I was really hoping — praying, even, to the Light and just about anything else that would listen — thatVendor - Gold Frostfire Shoulderpads, available on the Black Market Auction House to any cloth-wearing player with the coin, would share  Wrath of the Lich King Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Heroes’ Frostfire Shoulderpads‘s skin. But alas, the original Frostfire shoulders are blue, not peach, making this cloth transmog set one more sacrifice at the altar of well-dressed wizardry.

Well, well-dressed Alliance wizardry, anyway, because the Horde version of  Vendor - Honor Points Tyrannical Gladiator’s Cord of Meditation is, again, entirely the wrong colour. Of course, a creative Horde mage could probably find an alternate belt and maintain the soul of the set. If you’re a Horde player who’s not creative, let me know, and I’ll try banging my head against that particular wall myself.

Oh, and  World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Cournith Waterstrider’s Silken Finery is actually a BoE rare drop from a rare that can be found loping around Pandaria, so make sure you know what you’re killing before you start to grind. And yeah, on most toons, you’re going to see a sliver of black where the top of the stockings peeks out from behind the dress. It’s frustrating, but, so far as I can tell, there are no pants available that will be completely invisible with this dress model.
