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.

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.

Leather Transmog: Discarded Bag of Entrails

Leather Transmog - Discarded Bag of Entrails (Undead)

And, more importantly, what the heck was in those entrails that makes the gaping eyehole glow? Radioactive waste in ICC 10, it’s more likely than you think.

Here’s the full set on Wowhead.

First of all, who discards perfectly good entrails?

This is a bit of a departure from my usual aesthetic, but I don’t care. Those shoulders are fantastic. Seriously, take a minute and watch their animation on Wowhead.

We’re talking surprise shoulder tentacles, people. The best kind.

And this is one of the few sets I’ve done where I actually prefer it on an undead model. Apparently, it’s at its best with a few chunks torn out of it.

If you go down in the woods today, you’re sure of a big surprise — in this case, an enormous stone knife to the face.

Here’s the full set on Wowhead.

This is the part where I throw buzzwords at you — like “editorial” and “avant-garde” — to distract you from the fact that this outfit is kind of weird.

Look, I know there probably aren’t a lot of people out there who want to wander around in a floor-length skirt with a dead bear strapped to their head. But I do, okay? I do.

Oh, and something to remember: Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Hood of Stilled Winds displays strangely on certain races. I’ve heard tale of night elves’ eyebrows sticking out of its eyeholes and, well, check out the Pandaren female transmog model. You’ll be emotionally scarred you did.
