Building a cloth transmog set that doesn’t lean heavily on robes can be tough. There are a number of reasons for this, the first among them that, until recently, cloth pants came in one of two flavours — dishwater dull and eye-scorchingly horrific.
When you think about it, lazily reusing textures intended for skirts and robes makes a lot of sense. I mean, the results are almost universally hideous, but cloth-wearers wear robes, right? Who’s even going to see them?
The answer is me. I am going to see them. I am going to see them and despair, because in this glorious age of transmog there are some beautiful cloth shirts out there and very little to pair them with.
So needless to say, when I find a pair of pants I actually like, it’s Christmas in July. Or, in this case, November. Late November. Whatever.
What I’m trying to say is in a world where Lifegiver Britches in all of their transcendent hideousness exists, I’m glad to find a gem like Pontiff’s Pantaloons of Prophecy in the Burning Crusade back catalogue.
Sure, they’re a little hokey, but the swirling blue motif is a little skiing in the Alps, you know, a little Nordic snowflake sweater, for me. But that’s appropriate attire for the winter season, right?
So, all you mages, warlocks, and priests out their, slogging your way through Frostfire Ridge, give this transmog a try. Sure, it won’t stop you from freezing to death, but at least you’ll look good doing it.
