The Mists of Pandaria Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Mogu Sportsman’s Bow is dropped by the Ancient Mogu Guardian on the Isle of Thunder. I’ve tagged it as a Mists of Pandaria raid because, uh, it’s a world raid boss technically, right?

Sort of?

Don’t judge me. I’m not in the mood to use my brain-brain this afternoon and words are hard.

Okay, I love this mail transmog, but those shoulders are going to be a pain in the neck. Cataclysm Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Wyrmstalker’s Spaulders is a Cataclysm raid drop — easy, right? Nope, they’re a Cataclysm raid finder drop. That means if you’re already 90, you’re screwed — that is, until Warlords of Draenor makes old LFR content available to transmog hunters.

If you can’t wait, other colours of the same model are available (purple or red), but a straight substitution isn’t going work with this design. The chest, legs, helm, and gloves could stay, no problem, but you’d want to tweak the gloves, belt, and weapon to accommodate the red or purple — whatever your poison.

If you don’t feel like thinking too hard and you like the look, let me know and I’ll do the heavy lifting for you.

Here’s the whole set on Wowhead.

Okay, so I was bored one day and typed “cat” into the Wowhead search box because, well, cats, and the  Quest Reward Cat Lover’s Vest popped up. I freaked out, obviously, because cats, and built a cloth transmog set around it. This has been a true story of transmogrification inspiration by me.

And yeah, the Cloudscorcher Handwraps are a little complicated, though are probably pretty ubiquitous to any player who’s spent any time on the Timeless Isle. Timeless Isle mobs and treasure chests drop the Bind-on-Account Timeless Cloth Gloves; using the gloves creates a Cloudscorcher Handwraps appropriate for your loot specialization.

And while we’re at it, if you’re unable to find World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Aurora Pants on your Auction House, there are low-level lookalikes available as quest rewards for both factions. Wowhead has the details.

Okay, here’s an admission on my part. I freaking love the  Vanilla Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Dragonstalker’s Breastplate.

Have you seen the full set? It’s what in the fashion world is generally described Hunter Tier 2 - Dragonstalker Armoras completely bananas. That’s right, the same tier that gave us Judgement awarded hunters the chance to dress as giant, spiky, purple butterflies.

It’s loud, it’s obnoxious, and, compared to the usual dull Hunter palettes of greens, browns, maroons, and greys, it’s actually kind of refreshing.

Not that I’d ever wear the whole set at once, god no.

Look, I’ll admit, sometimes I may skirt the edge of good taste, but there’s a line between “irreverent” and “clown college” and this sucker is 100% Grade-A clown college.

Still, I appreciate the vibrant colour and the butterfly shape in the chestpiece, so I decided to put together a toned-down mail transmog set for hunters looking for something a little different. It’s still bright, it’s still a little ridiculous, but if you’re looking to capture that old school Vanilla feel without making your eyes bleed, it’s worth a try.

AFK Fashion: +20 Frost Resistance Hoodie

World of Warcraft Hoodie - +20 Frost Resistance“+20 Frost Resistance” World of Warcraft Hoodie (at jinx.com)*

Okay, okay, so Blizzard went through and removed the resistance stats from the vast majority of player gear. Still, it looks like they missed a few.

This hoodie’s +20 Frost Resistance makes it ideal for engaging frost mages in life and death combat and, uh, going outside when it’s cold out.

I know I don’t normally talk about real life clothes, guys. But it’s just too cute and, men’s cut or not, I want it.

And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
