Have you ever seen that movie, the one with the muscular, bronzed Adonis decked in animal skins, an enchanted sword at his side and a cadre of tamed attack dinosaurs at his back? You probably haven’t, because it is awful and also I made it up, but if you had, you’d know the main character dressed something like this.

It’s a little bit gladiator and a little bit walking fashion disaster. It’s the second of my series of transmog sets intended to be skimpy on both male and female toons and is a great choice if you’re the sort of person who likes wrestling dragons with your bare hands.

For a hint of extra gladitorial badassery, check out the covered face helm the Wrath of the Lich King Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Gaze of the Somber Keeper.

Okay, so this set breaks a few of my rules (a number of pieces are from the same set), but it’s for a good cause. I’ve wanted a solid leather transmog for my archeologist-slash-adventurer rogue alt for a while now and this combines regular clothes and mysterious swirling relics in a way that appeals to me greatly. She feels like a treasure hunter, with a simple dagger at her side and a morally ambiguous relationship with the law when it comes to historical site desecration.

I mean, *she even has the hat.*

Here’s the full set on Wowhead. And here it is again, this time in green.

Okay, this set has to begin with a whole bunch of apologies. Despite still being theoretically available because it’s BoE and may surface on the auction house (heck, I’m pretty sure I have one lying around somewhere), as of Mists of Pandaria the  Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Warchief Kilt is no longer available as a dungeon drop. The closest you’d get to an alternative is Vendor - Gold Jinxed Hoodoo Kilt; a green dungeon drop that can let you build a green version of this transmog set that’s also pretty great.

Cloth Transmog - Thunderlord Chestguard - Human

Exhibit B: Moobs.

And here’s another head-scratcher — Wowhead is displaying all sets of Shoulders of the Roiling Inferno and Dragonmaw Emergency Strap as being no longer available in game, this despite the fact they’re a drop from MoP raids that obviously still exist. I have no idea why this is. If anyone has an answer on this, let me know.

(Sadly, available or not, Shoulders of the Roiling Inferno is an intellect item, so only classes with an intellect-spec can win it based on MoP’s loot rules. Rogues need not apply.)

Oh yeah, and this outfit is super sexy — amazingly, not just on women, but on men as well. How the orcs survive wearing such little clothing, I have no idea.

This blog gets a lot of druids.

It’s true. The increasing frequency of encrypted searches means the vast majority of search keywords these days are locked away, hidden in the infuriatingly useless “Unknown Search Terms” section, but a few always slip through.

And, yeah, druids.

I mean, it confuses me a little. Don’t get me wrong, I love transmog, but 90% of druids spend their lives as cats and bears and large, apparently sentient, trees. If you’re an enormous horned bird flushed with mystical lunar energy, does it really matter what your tier gear looks like beneath your feathers?

Still, druids, I love you guys. So this one’s for you, assuming you’re a night elf or a worgen because, uh, it’s possible Omenai Vest is a weird Alliance-only quest reward from Hellfire Peninsula.

You know, the Horde get a lot of love on this blog, which is understandable because the Horde is awesome, but I was talking to a guy yesterday and he mentioned there’s this whole other faction out there. Apparently they like, uh, lion motifs and the colour blue and, uh, their king looks a bit like Bruce Campbell? I don’t know. They seem cool.

So, to all you Alliance-heads out there. Uh, what do you call yourselves? Alliance-rs? Alliance-istas?

This one’s for you.

Literally, only for you. That belt is faction-locked.
