Leather Transmog: Crown of Malorne (Druid)

Leather Transmog - Crown of Malorne - Night Elf 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.

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.

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.

Leather Transmog: Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat

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.
