Cloth Transmog: Heroes’ Frostfire Shoulderpads (Alliance Mage)

Cloth Transmog - Heroes' Frostfire - Draenei

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.

Head: N/A
Shoulders: Wrath of the Lich King Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Heroes’ Frostfire Shoulderpads (Mages)
Back: N/A
Chest: Vanilla Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop  Vestments of the Shifting Sands
Hands:Vendor - Gold Sterile Flesh-Handling Gloves
Waist: Vendor - Honor Points Tyrannical Gladiator’s Cord of Meditation (Alliance)
Legs:  World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Cournith Waterstrider’s Silken Finery
Feet:  World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops  Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Outlander’s Boots

Main-Hand: Vendor - Gold Searing Sunblade
Off-Hand:  Vendor - Gold Ward of the Violet Citadel

Check out the whole set on Wowhead.

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.

    • I’m glad you like it! The gloves are “Sterile Flesh-Handling Gloves,” which you should be able to track down on Wowhead.
