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.

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.

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.*
