Did you know that there’s a new expansion lurking on the horizon? And that that means I’m finally back to playing World of Warcraft again? And yes, I did receive the Fashionista achievement moments after logging in for the first time in months, because I have a problem and that problem is called “hording transmog gear.”

Check back over the next few weeks for more sets, the creation of a demon hunter category, and some discussion of recent transmog changes. In the interim, monks! This burnt orange leather transmog set is locked to the practitioner of the monkish arts (is that a thing — we’re going to say that’s a thing) but you could probably work something similar with different shoulders for other classes.

Leather Transmog: Crown of Malorne (Druid)

The more I look at this set, the more I’m unsure if it successfully walks the line between “fashionable” and “got dressed in the dark while drunk.”

I don’t keep this website updated as frequently as I should (on a related note, watch this space for updates on Legion’s leaked gear and weapons models sometime in the next decade), so it might surprise you to hear that I build some of these sets weeks, if not months, before they’re posted.

Why the delay? Honestly, formatting the posts and making the screen captures takes time I sometimes just don’t have. So the sets sit there, waiting patiently, for the day I’ll go through my drafts folder and go, “Oh yeah, that’s a thing,” and send it out for the world to enjoy.

That’s what happened this morning, except wasn’t so much, “Oh hey, check out the deft craftsmanship that went into this handmade transmog set I made several months ago” as, “uh, wait… why.” Like, the helm and the bone-coloured belt make sense, and even the shoulders could work in theory, but with the shoes and the dagger I’m kind of left scratching my head. Maybe somebody spiked my coffee with more LSD than usual that day. Anything’s possible.

So consider today’s transmog set a risky experiment. I think it looks good on night elves, but other races will find their mileage varies considerably.

If you guys have ideas re: a better weapon or shoes, hit me up in the comments.

Feeling disaffected with your government? Tired of envying your fat cat neighbour’s plush new cardboard box to sleep in or choking down your mama’s homemade dirt-and-stringy-coyote-hair pie? Come to the Deadmines, where drifters and deadbeats and layabouts are forged into lean, mean, drifting and deadbeating and layabouting machines.

Can’t find a job because the fields are bare and the guards at Sentinel Hill don’t like the way you smell? The Defias Brotherhood offers ample training opportunities to its members in the lucrative fields of thieving, stabbing, and general rabble-rousing, all for the low, low cost of being slaughtered indiscriminately by rampaging hordes of low-level Alliance adventurers.

So far as this leather transmog is concerned, it’s “bring-your-own-bandana,” though. Do we look like we’re made of money?

When the cold winds of Northrend blow, smart monks and druids turn to the fashionable and frostyCrafted Item Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal White Leather Jerkin for warmth and comfort. Unlike some of the sets that are featured around here, this one’s relatively easy to make. If you’re lucky enough to have a well-stocked auction house on your server, your only RNG dependency is Cataclysm Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Poison Protocol Pauldrons — a comfortable 18% drop from Magmatron in Blackwing Descent.

And okay, so the only piece of this set that’s locked to monks and druids is the cape that you can barely see, but I love that spear. Until Blizzard stops ignoring my e-mails and makes “Fan of Polearms” a thing, I’m calling this ice fishing in Storm Peaks set monks and and druids only.

Okay, please don’t ask me what I was drinking when I went and labeled all the image files “cloth transmog.” This is a set for monks so, yeah, we’re talking handworked animal skins, not floral cotton/silk blends.

And speaking of monks, I’m so happy with this set, you have no idea. It’s not so much that I even like the look, though I do, it’s that it looks like something a monk would wear. Because they’re a (comparatively) new class, I sometimes struggle with the monk aesthetic. I know what a druid looks like. I know what a rogue looks like. But what a monk looks like, when he’s not wearing that classic limpet-shell hat? No freaking clue.

But this set, this works! This looks like a — oh, he’s wearing the hat, isn’t he?

Ugh, whatever.
