Here’s the full set on Wowhead.

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.

Cloth Transmog - Lifegiver Britches - Hideous

Fashion.

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 whereVendor - Gold Lifegiver Britches in all of their transcendent hideousness exists, I’m glad to find a gem like  Vendor - Gold Pontiff’s Pantaloons of Prophecy in the Burning Crusade back catalogue.

Cloth TransmogSure, 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.

Okay, so I was bored one day and typed “cat” into the Wowhead search box because, well, cats, and the  Quest Reward Cat Lover’s Vest popped up. I freaked out, obviously, because cats, and built a cloth transmog set around it. This has been a true story of transmogrification inspiration by me.

And yeah, the Cloudscorcher Handwraps are a little complicated, though are probably pretty ubiquitous to any player who’s spent any time on the Timeless Isle. Timeless Isle mobs and treasure chests drop the Bind-on-Account Timeless Cloth Gloves; using the gloves creates a Cloudscorcher Handwraps appropriate for your loot specialization.

And while we’re at it, if you’re unable to find World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Aurora Pants on your Auction House, there are low-level lookalikes available as quest rewards for both factions. Wowhead has the details.

This started off as a sexy red priest transmog and somehow turned into “What Would Melisandre from Game of Thrones Wear While Lighting People On Fire.” Hence the red-hot pokers because, well, are we surprised?

Okay, and yeah, I don’t have an indicator for Sporeling’s Firestick. It’s a rep item that can be purchased from Sporeggar using tiny mushrooms, so keep an eye out for that.

Cloth Transmog: The Hexxer’s Mask

Do you enjoy fire, but also have a healthy appreciation for the troll aesthetic? If you do, and happen to be playing a warlock, mage, or priest with a DPS spec, this Mists of Pandaria-heavy set might be for you. And yes, there’s nothing to say guys can’t wear this too, but the  World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Simple Blouse displays on men differently, so don’t hold out hope for a masculine bare midriff (get on it, Blizzard!).

For the full effect (unless you’re, you know, a troll), equip Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes and let your weary soles breathe. If you didn’t do the Battlefield Barrens dailies back in 5.3, you’ve missed out — these “shoes” are no longer available.

There’s just something romantic about hoods. This set actually began as part of an aborted attempt to create something beautiful for draenei mages, but those shoulders, man. Don’t blame me. Blame Blizzard. And write to your congressman — it won’t help, but at least you can impress your friends while mingling over cocktails later with the fact you’re “active in local politics.”

Or, uh, something.
