A Tiny Blog Milestone

Just a short post to say thank you to all the wonderful Draenei Enthusiasts out there!  The blog hit 10k views the other day, and I’m so amazed!  I never would have thought so many people would be reading about my silly Fly Draenei adventures 🙂  Thanks everyone who stops by, and follows along, you all are SUPER FLY!!!

I was looking through my really old screenshots the other day, and ran across this gem:

This was taken way back in 2009 while Draynee was leveling through Blade’s Edge Mountains.  I knew she had always loved that set, lol!  The Talongaurd Epaulets look pretty good with it too 😉

Theramore’s Fall Transmog – Archmage’s Staff

Continuing with my Thermore’s Fall Transmogs, up next is the staff of the infamous Ronin.

For this first mog, I wanted to play of the orange and pink accents in the staff.  The robe is a little more ‘warlocky’ than ‘magey’, but I love the bright pink colors in it.

Shoulders – Firehawk Mantle
Chest – Vermillion Robes of the Dominant
Bracers – Wraps of the San’layn
Gloves – Widow’s Clutches
Waist – Veteran’s Dreadweave Belt
Staff – Archmage’s Staff

This mog was inspired by the lovely outfit WoW Roleplay Gear put together to go with the staff.

Head – Cowl of the Grand Engineer

Shoulders – Mantle of the Elven Kings

Chest – Robe of Kelris

Hands – Aboriginal Gloves

Waist – Veteran’s Silk Belt

Staff – Archmage’s Staff

Theramore’s Fall Transmog – Theramore Arcanist’s Hat

Theramore’s Fall was implemented this week as in introduction to the Scenarios coming in Mists.  There has been much written on people’s impressions of the instance, more eloquently than I could put it, so I’ll keep my 2 cents short and sweet like the Scenario itself.  While I don’t think the instance is great by any means, I don’t find it horrible.  I was a little disappointed that the objectives for the horde and alliance versions are pretty much the same – kill people on boats, light boats on fire, kill person on wind rider / gryphon, kill tanks, insert different ending here.  I also felt that had I not read any recaps on what happened in the Tides of War book, I probably wouldn’t have had any idea why I was blowing the place up, or cleaning up the aftermath.  Between the speed of the run, and the complete randomness that is purple loot that may or may not in my spoils bag, it really reminds me most of a holiday boss.  My biggest issue with the place is the “transmog” items in the loot tables.  Really…

hat blk
Anyhow, I like to keep things upbeat, so instead of running through the ugly, I will say there are a few gems in the pile.  First up is this lovely white wizard hat!  A nice crisp white, it is a great addition to the wizard hat collection available in game.  I decided to take inspiration from the ring around the top of the hat to base my transmogs on.  I started with the Gossamer Belt:

Head – Theramore Arcanist’s Hat

Shoulder – Elegant Mantle

Chest – Black Ash Robe

Hands – Soulcloth Gloves

Waist – Gossamer Belt


Several of the Gossamer pieces look quite nice with the hat, including the shoulders. Here’s an outfit using the robe, and including my favorite item in game, a star wand!

Head – Theramore Arcanist’s Hat

Shoulders – Summer Song Shoulderwraps

Chest – Gossamer Robe

Gloves – Soulcloth Gloves

Waist – Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle

Off-hand – Regal Star

Fly Draenei Friday – King Krush

Time again for Fly Draenei Friday!  Don’t forget to send in your fly Draenei shots!  Either you, someone you know, or just someone you see around town, send ’em on in.


For this week’s reader submits, we have a double-dose from Vraela of Sen’jin.  First up is her hunter in a very green look.

Shoulders – Gladiator’s Chain Spaulders
Chest, Gloves, Belt, Legs and
Boots – Der’izu Set
Bow – Bristleblitz Striker

I’m a big fan of this pants model, if not strictly for the utility they provided hunters before ammo and feeding your pet were removed 🙂 Vraela said she came up with this outfit after taming King Krush, I bet they look great together!


She also sent in her paladin, Vaeshara. Hmm, something about this outfit I really like 😉

Shoulders – Justice Bearer’s Pauldrons
Back – Groff’s Tarpaulin
Chest, Legs, Feet – Revenant Plate
Hands – Life Bearer’s Gauntlets
Waist – Beech Green Belt
Mace – Northshire Battlemace
Shield – Titansteel Shield Wall

The shield and mace combo is really great here.  Vaeshara said she doesn’t normally show cloaks on Draenei, but really likes the length and coloring of this one.  I concur!

Thanks Vraela/Vaeshara, I really enjoyed seeing your Fly Draenei!


Now some fly Draenei from Proudmoore:

Qandisa‘s rather skimpy outfit is a great take on the thigh-high leggings look, with some pieces I haven’t really seen. Polychromatic Visionwrap with Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Gloves of Arcane Acuity, and Sash of Serpentra. Urnakia has a super unique spin on the Judgement Recolor.  The Gladiator’s Scaled Shoulders and Gloves go really well with the Judgement pieces, and the Rich Purple Silk Shirt underneath ties everything together.

Zevori chose to accentuate her Rift Stalker Armor with Sundered Chestpiece and Belt. Adding the Gilnean Adventurer’s Shirt really makes this a great look. Anathe has a pretty wild mash-up outfit going on. Blood-Stained Pauldrons, Bloodfist Breastplate and Gloves, Lawbringer Belt, and Warlord’s Iron-Legplates.
Mana Kaydis
Quite a super fly scene at the auctioneer in Dalaran!  Mana in the Jade Plate set,
Draynee in her usual set, and Kaydis in the Ten Storms set.

Bloodmail Set – Hunter Mog

In the weeks leading up to patch 5.0.4, I had grand intentions of running Scholomance for some of the gear that was possibly being removed with the updates to it, and Scarlet Monestary.  Two pieces I was really interested in were the Bloodmail legs and boots.  It started well, I nabbed the boots on my second run.  By my fourth run, however, I started to loose interest.  I have to admit I was a little burned out on the place after farming for Alanna’s Embrace, and generally from years of running through it.

Unfortunately, the dungeon updates did remove all of the old gear from the loot tables.  Drainee is slightly bummed she will never have the perfect pair of black pants.  It would be awesome if Blizzard introduces more cosmetic gear in the future, as with the old tier pieces you can buy from the Darkmoon Faire.  I’ve decided to post my Bloodmail transmog that was not to be, hopefully some lucky soul with the pants can take inspiration from it 🙂

Mog Update and MoP Preperation

I can’t believe in less than two weeks we’ll all be headed to Vacation Panda Island!  Well, maybe not all of us…  Being able to make Pandaren without having to buy the x-pac is pretty cool on Blizzard’s part.  Anyhow, with such a short time left, I thought I’d post an update on how my characters are wrapping up Cataclysm, and the little things left I want to do.

Draynee is spending her time up at the Argent Tournament these days.  Doing those dailies on a regular basis has been a plague to me since it was introduced.  I’ve never gotten a single pet, and the only mount I managed to save enough for was the Dragonhawk for the Horde.  My goal is to either get the Argent Charger or the Quel’dorei Steed, I haven’t decided which yet.  I need 73 more tokens, so hopefully I can keep jousting everyday!  Otherwise, I’m sure it will be another 2 years before I make it up there again.

Her other goal is to finish farming honor for the Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Gear.  I’m not sure when she’ll wear it, but it is such a cool set.  I’d also really like to get her in a real Dragon Soul (only ever been in LFR), but that probably wont actually happen.

Perhaps a little over the top?

In mog news, nothing much has changed for Draynee.  She did stop by the Tabard Designer in Stormwind and make the guild tabard even pinker than it was before.  It goes great with her new super pink cloak.  Cloaks are a little funny looking on Draenei, but she needed some sort of update, so why not go with more pink?!  I know the outfit is totally obnoxious, and I think it was getting me targetted in PVP.  I’ve had to resort to non-mogged PVP gear for that honor farming!

Drainee can be found hanging around Tol Barad, killing every fox in sight.  91 more tokens and that darn pet will be mine, regardless!  Since she no longer has to mog around a polearm, Drainee decided to switch her look up for the Furious Gladiator’s mog I posted awhile ago.  She likes to have a semi-coordinated pet, and this aqua & purple warp stalker seems to fit the bill ok.  Warp Stalkers used to have an awesome ability where they would teleport to behind a target.  I had a white and blue one for a long time on my first hunter.  I’m not sure when they took it away, but their new ability just isn’t as cool.  Blink Strike is a pretty decent replacement, so I just use it to start combat with mobs and it’s almost like the old days.

OMG!  A Blood Elf!

Earlier today I finished collecting enough Tol Barad tokens for the Spectral Wolf.  He’s no Spectral Steed, but he looks pretty good with Lideyviah’s outfit.  I don’t talk about her much, but she’s my original “main”.  She was my achievement hunter, mount collector and raider.  She’s fallen by the wayside in favor of fly Draenei, but I visit her often and will probably level her in Mists when my Horde-side friends are around.

Is it hot in here, or is it just me?
Drayney doesn’t really have much going on, she just wanted to show off… darn mages >_>  The Watcher’s Tunic is such a great piece, maybe her goal can be finding some decent pants to go with it.
My last goal before the 25th is to finish buying the leather heirloom pieces for my new pandaland characters.  A Draenei monk, and an oh-so-adorable Pandaren rogue.  I was really hoping they would have worked out truly account-bound heirlooms before the launch, as I have the whole set on my horde server.  I have one dagger for the rogue, and I don’t think I need very many JP for the chest and shoulders.  I just have to decide if I want to really grind out all the points to buy the agi staff for the monk.  I might see how healing is on the monk, as I do have the leather int heirlooms and staff from a failed attempt to level a druid.
The idea of a Pandaren rogue is kind of funny to me.  She just seems too cute for backstabs and kidney shots.  I tried to level a Worgen rogue, but I couldn’t take the hunched-over running and constant sniffing.  I like playing a rogue, as I have a lvl 85 belf one, so hopefully the stabby fun won’t be too weird on such a darling creature.

Fly Draenei at the Mogolympics

The Transmogolympics may have ended, but they will live on forever in our hearts! Lol, ok that was super cheesy, but I couldn’t think of a good opener for this post.

I finally got a chance to check out everyone’s entries to the Mogolympics over at JD’s awesome site – “The Official Home of the Transmog Games“. There were so many amazing entries, all I can say is ‘Wow!’.

I’m sure no explanation is needed as to why, I decided to make a slideshow of all the Fly Draenei that were in the Mogolympics. Not every faction had a Draenei representative, but that is ok, because some factions had more than one!

Here’s just a few of my Super Fly favorites.  It was really hard to only pick out a few, but otherwise this could go on for days.  Now I really know how the judges felt!

This wrestler representing Darnassus cant help but
be fly in that Zebra pimp hat!  He is a Draenei even
 professional wrestlers wouldn’t want to mess with.


This fencing entry from the Earthen Ring is really stunning.
The gold and silver with pops of green is well done.


The Illidari’s Cycling entrant made excellent
use of the Pillager’s Leggings.  Not very attractive
as a full set, but coordinated with the silver and
brown pieces, they look very nice.


The Sunreavers picked an excellent entrant for the
wrestling tournament.  This Draenei is super scary,
in a badass wrestler way.  You can see by his score he
even put the fear in someone as fly as Mr. Pimp Hat.
