Normally, this is the part where I tell a couple of jokes or talk a bit about the origins of the transmog set, but today all I want to say is this:

Am I the only one who thinks Mists of Pandaria Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Shoulders of Foaming Fluids sounds, like, super gross?

Because ew, you guys. Ew.

Look, I’ll be straight with you. I’m not the best person out there. I have flaws. Sometimes, when I’m at a dinner party, I’ll lock eyes with a guest standing across the room and then slowly, methodically, eat the last h’ordeuvre on the plate as a way to assert dominance.

But my skirt, my skirt is virtuous, people.

Okay, it’s a replica of a skirt that’s virtuous. But that’s close enough.

This fashion tentac-ular offers priests everywhere the convenience of rock candy-mounted shoulder pauldrons and, uh, a one-size-fits-all tentacle dress that hugs the hips in all the right places. If you’re not a priest, no worries — you’ll just have to skip out on the world’s least comfortable murder-tiara.

Transmog Models By Race: Blood Elf, Draenei, Dwarf, Gnome, GoblinHuman, Night Elf, Orc, Pandaren, Tauren, Troll, Undead, Worgen

Okay, you’ll note a number of substitutions today, so I’ll run through those quickly.

My preferred off-hand for this set is  Vendor - Honor Points Primal Combatant’s Endgame, which, unfortunately, falls victim to Blizzard’s habitual tendency to make Alliance PVP gear blue and Horde gear red. That means Horde players interested in this set are stuck using something else. My suggestion is the Vendor - Gold Star-Heart Lamp; a fine alternative, but an admittedly different model.

Wrath of the Lich King Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Relentless Gladiator’s Cord of Salvation, which I’ve provided as an alternative, is also a different model. But wait, Liz,  Burning Crusade Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Nethershard Girdle doesn’t have any user restrictions! So why is  Wrath of the Lich King Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Relentless Gladiator’s Cord of Salvation even there?

Because Burning Crusade Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Nethershard Girdle doesn’t quite match the rest of the set and it was bugging the heck out of me, that’s why.

My recommendation is to check out both belts on Wowhead and select the look that you prefer.

Oh, and Happy New Year, everybody! If you haven’t run Molten Core yet, your time is running out. Get on it!

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.
