Okay, I love this mail transmog, but those shoulders are going to be a pain in the neck. Cataclysm Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Wyrmstalker’s Spaulders is a Cataclysm raid drop — easy, right? Nope, they’re a Cataclysm raid finder drop. That means if you’re already 90, you’re screwed — that is, until Warlords of Draenor makes old LFR content available to transmog hunters.

If you can’t wait, other colours of the same model are available (purple or red), but a straight substitution isn’t going work with this design. The chest, legs, helm, and gloves could stay, no problem, but you’d want to tweak the gloves, belt, and weapon to accommodate the red or purple — whatever your poison.

If you don’t feel like thinking too hard and you like the look, let me know and I’ll do the heavy lifting for you.

Okay, I’d be lying if I said  Mists of Pandaria Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop  Armor of the Single Cloud wasn’t the sole inspiration for the creation of my female Draenei shaman. It’s beautiful, it’s blue, and it manages to look skimpy on both genders, a rare feat given Blizzard’s usual fashion double-standards. It also looks great with  Mists of Pandaria Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop  Shoulderguards of Dark Meditations, one of the few pieces to come out of Tier 16 that I actually like.

Unfortunately, if you’re looking for your sexy male shaman to show some skin, your good luck ends there: for reasons known only to Blizzard’s art department,  World Drop - Includes Zone-Specific Drops Auction House - Click Here For Undermine Journal Lord’s Legguards is less revealing on male toons.

Shamans don’t get a lot of love on this blog, largely because they’re one of the few classes I’ve never really played. But that shield, man. Who wouldn’t want to bash someone’s face in with that ridiculous handlebar moustache?

Or, uh, heal.

Or whatever it is shamans do.

I don’t know, okay? Something about… totems?

(Yadayada, hunters, please pretend the above Main Hand and Off-Hand are actually the Naxx 25 crossbow Wrath of the Lich King Raid Drop - Boss Loot or Raid Trash Drop Final Voyage.)
