Fly Furtive Father Winter

I received my Blog Azeroth Furtive Father Winter gift today, how exciting!!  My gift is from Tyledres at Frost and Claws.  I’ll update here once my gift to my secret blogger pal is done 😉

It was the feast of Winter Veil and like so many other members of the Alliance, Draynee headed to Ironforge to celebrate. It looked like Great Father Winter was being especially generous this year.

Under the tree there was a human death knight. The death knight was holding a rather shabbily wrapped gift and was stopping all the Draenei and asking, “Excuse me, but are you Draynee? Or do you know where I can find her?”

Stepping forward Draynee said, “I’m Draynee! Who are you and why are you looking for me?”
“I’m Tyledres, and I was told to give this gift to you,” the death knight said. She started to hand it forward when a mage blinked between the two.

“Wait a minute!” cried the mage. Staring at Tyledres she said, “You’re not supposed to be here! You’re not a Draenei and you don’t transmog your gear!”

Tyledres glance at her gear. It looked good to her. She especially like the skulls. Staring at the mage’s outfit she couldn’t help but remark, “But at least I don’t look like a color-blind space gypsy!”

“I’m festive not color-blind!” screamed the mage as she cast polymorph polar bear on Tyledres.
The mage couldn’t help grinning at the polar bear. “She’s definitely looking more festive now.” The mage than turned her gaze to Draynee. “Sorry about that,” she said, “I’m Azilem the mage.”

Azilem stared expectantly at Draynee and made a quick adjustment to her hat. Clearly Azilem was waiting for Draynee to say something. “Um hi Azilem,” began Draynee. Remembering how the mage reacted when her outfit was disparaged she decided to compliment it instead. “That’s an interesting outfit you put together.”

“It’s pretty amazing isn’t it?” gushed Azilem. If you want to recreate I made it from these pieces:

Head: Red Pointy Hat

Shoulder: Hibernal Mantle

Chest: Red Linen Vest

Shirt: Scarlet Filigreed Doublet

Hands: Windwool Gloves

Waist: Captain Sander’s Sash

Legs: Greenblood Pantaloons

Feet: Fire Striders


Whistling happily Azilem than thrust the gift the death knight Tyledres had been holding into Draynee’s hands and began to cast a portal. Once finished she grabbed the polar bear death knight, tossed it though the portal and then followed herself.

Feeling a bit bemused Draynee than looked at the gift that had been thrust into her hands. It looked like a three-year-old had wrapped it and it smelled a little funny. Wondering if the smell came from having been in the death knight’s possession or if it was from the gift itself Draynee carefully unwrapped the gift.

Inside she found this drawing –

Happy Holidays Draynee and to everyone else as well!
Thanks Tyledres!  I love the post, and especially the drawing 😀  It’s the first drawing I’ve ever gotten of any of my characters!  It’s super fly!!  Thanks Akabeko and Blog Azeroth for hosting this event!

This Post is Bananas!

My  friend Ultros calls these the ‘Paladin Banana Shoulders’! wowhead

I had never used twitter before having my blog, and I thought joining it would be a great way to connect with other bloggers  I was right about that!  I love chatting with other WoW bloggers, you-tubers and podcasters over there.  I’ve made a few ‘twitter pals’, and one of those is the amazing Joe (@wowmartiean).  He does awesome videos, and recently launched his own site  We were talking one day about him blogging on his site when this happened:

I can’t get the thought about a banana post out of my head!  Joe’s going through some RL stuff, so now seems like a great time for bananas and to give my bud a shout-out!  Head over to his site and check out his vids, and if you love them like I do, he’s got a donate button there too 🙂

Now, about those bananas!  I was really surprised at how many banana-related things there are in game!

From wowhead

One of my favorites is The Golden Banana, which is a quest reward from Krasarang Wilds.  You can use it to throw a banana on the ground!  It’s one of those great useless, yet fun items introduced in Mists.


Another super-fun Mists item is the Magic Banana.  It drops from a rare in Valley of the Four Winds names Bonobos .  What an awesome title.  You can use this item to toss a banana that will make another player slip and fall on their bootay.  Here’s a video of it – hilarious!

From wowhead

If you’re bananas over battle pets, this cute little guy’s name is Bananas.  He is a companion pet from the Trading Card game.  One of his pet battle abilities is Banana Barrage, which is cool, but I wonder where he keeps all those bananas to hurl…

From wowhead

Finally, if you’re a little hungry after looking at all those ‘nana picutres, you can always pick up some Soft Banana Bread and wash it down with a Banana Cocktail.  If those don’t satisfy, you can pick up some Tel’Abim Bananas and make Banana Infused Rum with the leftovers!  The Banana Infused Rum is made with a Way of the Brew recipie and requires 600 skill in that Way, but it sounds way worth all of the crazy ingredients, as it turns you into a Hozen Pirate for 30 seconds!

Well, I hope you enjoyed my silly look at banana things, and I hope you can check out Joe’s vids.  I know he appreciates everyone who does 🙂

Mini Mog Post – Feeling Green


I’m working my way towards the Quintessential Quintet acheivement, but I’ve been finding it hard to choose which alt should be number 5.  I already have a Paladin, Hunter, Death Knight and Mage at 90.  The DK and Mage are my elf ladies, so I debated for a long time about leveling my fly draenei mage.  Do I need another mage?  Probably not.  The reason I leveled my elf mage though, is because I had so much fun playing Drayney at the end of Cata.  So, I’ve played around with my warrior, leveled all my almost-80 lanquishers, even started bringing up my 52 priest!  It all comes back to wanting to mage it up though!  She was already just shy of 87 from doing archeology, and still rocking her farmer mog.

The first step in leveling up any character is getting a nice mog set up 😀   I visited my bank and void storage for inspiration, and this dress was really speaking to me.  I had already purchased the dragon staff, and I thought they went together pretty well.  I don’t really think of green as a mage color, but I kinda love the look, so I thought I’d share it with you guys!


Shoulders – Frayed Abomination Stitching Shoulders

Chest – Brightcloth Robe

Waist – Councillor’s Sash

Hands – Windwool Gloves

Staff – Staff of Broken Hopes

For legs, I’m using the Cindercloth Pants, but any of that model, or the new model leggings would work to show the cut out.  If you’re feeling a little more modest, you could also go with a greenish-gold or brown pair or pants.

sideThe little red gem on the shoulder to match
the red strapping on the staff.

Fly Draenei Friday – even Saturdays are Fly

Better late than never, eh?


This week I have a super fly mog from a reader named Simon.  He says this is by far the best transmog he’s come up with, but I say I cant wait to see more, because this one is awesome!!  He’s used the new leggings model introduced with Mists here, which is awesome because I haven’t featured any of the new gear yet!  Maybe I should get on that…

Head – Mage-Collar of the Firestorm
Shoulders – Mantle of Three Terrors
Chest – Cindercloth Vest
Tabard of The Wyrmrest Accord
Wrists – Earthmenders Bracers of Shattering
Hands – Gloves of the High Magus
Waist – Captains Sanders’ Sash
Legs – Cournith Waterstrider’s Silken Finery   (Cindercloth Leggings works just fine, aswell)
Feet – Fire Striders
Staff – Sun-Infused Focus Staff

Thanks for sending in your mog, Simon 😀


And here’s some Proudmore mog-spots!

Like the monk I spotted last week, Faludi is using several rogue tier pieces in her super fly mog. Tier 13 chest head and gloves, with tier 9 shoulders, and simple Daggercap Trousers. This death knight look is so fly. The shoulders and legs from DK tier 10 are combined with pieces from tier 13, and topped off with the Tabard of the Ebon Blade.  The sword is pretty amazing too.
Boredtodeath‘s gold mail mog really stands out! Glimmering Mail LegguardsPauldrons and Girdle are paired with, Burnished Tunic and Battlecaller Gauntlets. Kelpret looks great in her Gronnstalker’s Armor. The headpiece she chose, Brigade Circlet, coordinates really nicely!

Replica Soulforge Mogs


After approximately 8,473 runs of the Ring of Law in BRD, I finally got Anub’shiah to relenquish his chestpiece to me and finish this mog I’ve been messing around with for months!  It’s gone through several itterations, and originally started as something different for my pally to wear.  I really wanted to use this slimmer version of the Revenant gloves, but since they are from a Hellfire Peninsula quest, I sadly no longer had them for Draynee.  Good thing I kept every piece of gear I got while leveling my warrior!  Since the Darkmoon Faire was in town this past weekend, I got to farming.

The chestpiece I wanted to use is most commonly known as the Saltstone Surcoat, which is BOE world drop with about a 0.1% drop rate.  There was one on my auction house for 4,000 gold.  I decided to try my luck with the same model drop out of BRD.  With 6 random bosses, all with random loot, farming a piece of gear from the Ring of Law is not any easy task.  It took me about 4 days of doing the 5 runs per hour each chance I got.  If anyone is looking for this, or another piece from here, my best advice is just to keep at it!  Perseverance pays off 😀

Fly Draenei Friday – Katsumii

I love doing Fly Draenei Friday, it’s one of my favorite things about this blog.  I especially love when my super fly readers send me their awesome mogs!!


This week’s reader mog is from Katsumii of Caelestrasz (US). Her violet dress is absolutely stunning, and coordinates beautifully with her cloak and shoulders.

Thanks for sharing Katsumii! 😀

As usual, here’s some fly gals I’ve spotted around Proudmoore recently!

I’ve spotted Qandisa before looking super fly, and here she is in another awesome look!  I love the way her sword and offhand shine.  wowhead Woo, finally a Draenei monk!  Hatsuyuki has combined some rogue tier 9 off-set pieces with some bad-ass fist weapons for a super fly look.
Amadita‘s mix of Lofty Legguards with the Glorious Set looks really great with her Tushui Pandaren Tabard. Salores accented her Robes of Insight with this new Mists belt model, a great choice for letting the dress stand out.

Looking Fly with Euphy(ley)


Last week’s Laid Back Raid with JD and crew was a dragon killing party.  We started the night in Obsidium Sanctum, where I got to meet up with the super duper fly Euphyley of WoW Rare Spawns!  Her transmog is so awesome, and it goes fantastically with the Tabard of the Acheiver she is wearing.  Drainee also stepped out in her new look.  Since she recently turned 90 and is running a lot of heroics, I threw together a look that went with the dungeon set.  I was going for an outfit that I could mix and match without running to the mogger everytime I got an upgrade.  So shhhh, don’t tell that not all of my pieces are actually mogged!!

The great part about Euphyley’s mog is that she used some of the Scarlet Crusade pieces that used to drop out of Scarlet Monastery.  The Scarlet Belt is a BOE, so you may still be able to find one on your AH along with the Scarlet Chestpiece, but unfortunately, the bosses that dropped the Hands and Legs were replaced in the Mists’ revamp of the SM dungeons.


Shoulders – Harlan’s Shoulders

Chest – Ornate Breastplate

Gloves – Pillager’s Gloves

Waist – Bindburner Belt

Legs – Legguards of the Crimson Magus

Feet – Ornate Greaves


Head – Stylin’ Crimson Hat

Shoulders – Stormcaller’s Pauldrons

Chest – Stormcaller’s Hauberk

Hands – Gauntlets of Divinity

Waist – Scarlet Belt

Legs – Scarlet Leggings

Feet – Mercurial Greaves

I asked Euphyley about how to say her name, just so I could be sure it rhymed with ‘Fly’. I’ve always said it like Yoo-fee-lee, but just my rhyming luck, she pronounces it You-Fie-Lee! So glad that worked out 😛

Here’s another shot of Eupyley and Drainee, from our Ulduar LBR a few weeks ago!  Make sure and check out her blog for all the info you could ever want on rare spawn stuff 🙂
