Here’s the full set on Wowhead.

World of Warcraft has a lot of different races with a lot of different body types but, for whatever reason most of the time fan-made transmog sets are designed for use on blood elves, night elves, humans and (female) draenei.

(I know, I know, it’s a mystery wrapped in an enigma.)

But, in any event, when somebody posted on MMO Champion looking for ideas for his male pandaren warrior, I was stumped. My existing sets were all built with a female blood elf base; on a male pandaren, the proportions were all wrong.

So I sat down and came up with this. Unfortunately, the helm (which is a big part of what makes the set so great) is only available to Horde toons. It also isn’t hugely original; as you can see, it’s just two existing sets stitched together.

I will say, in my opinion, this doesn’t work on the taller races. The belt seam is a lot more visible (if anyone’s got ideas re: belt substitutions, I’m all ears), for one thing, and the proportions are distorted. But on a pandaren (especially the female pandaren, they’re so cute), they look pretty darn snazzy.

Uh, in an, “I’ll tear out your jugular with my teeth” sort of way.

  1. That chestplate looks simply amazing on a male pandaren. Their belly brings the design out really well. I’m guilty as charged for mogging Blood Elf and Draenei females, but I do love mogging my Night Elf male, seeing as he is my OG PvP master.

    Actually, though, the helm brings your set count to three, if I’m not mistaken. Some of the best sets I’ve seen are just two sets stitched together, with accouterments that bring it all together. Where would my female characters be, if it weren’t for their bikini plate replacements in standard sets? Warmer, that’s where. But that’s not the point! Just a few minor adjustments to standard sets brings a lot of personality to the table.

    I have the urge to roll an 8th warrior and make him a Horde Pandaren, just for this set. It’s that good. Oh! Couple it with the Tyrannical Gladiator’s 2 handed sword… Sublime! :p
