Fly Draenei Friday – Soco Wow!

I hope you guys have been enjoying all the FDF’s lately!  Sorry for lack of other mog posts, I’ve been feeling a little uninspired :/  I’ve just been tending my farm and doing dailies, it’s a little blah.  I have some things on the backburner though, just need to light the fire and get to it!  But enough about me, this post is all about some super fly draenei!  This week’s reader mog is from lovely Soco at Vault of Light.  Soco has a lot of great tips about gold making over on her blog, along with some beautiful screenshots.  Her draenei pictures on her blog header are so pretty too!


With the release of patch 5.2 I’ve been on a bit of a Troll / Tribal kick! I’ve loved the Vital Raiment robe (as well as the other versions) for so long and now just felt like the perfect time to embrace it!

Chest – Vital Raiment
Gloves – Shivery Handwraps*
Wrist – Trellised Wristwraps
Legs – Ancestral Woollies
Waist – Contender’s Satin Belt
Shoulder – Malevolent Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle
Staff – Staff of the Plaguehound
Helm – Bad Mojo Mask

*These gloves are no longer in the game, but if you’re looking for something similar, you could try the Replica Virtuous Gloves or Belly Rubbers.

Great mog Soco!  I also love this dress model, and my mage pretty much only wears variations of it now 😉  I don’t really play a priest, so I didn’t even know about these shoulders, they are very nice.  Thanks for sending it in!!!

And here’s some super fly Proudmoore-ites!

I’m always super excited to see a fly guy, and Barroll is just that in his Lightforge recolor set with perfectly-coordinated Tushui Pandaren tabard. Armellé looks pretty in her purple leather mog. Revelosh’s Spaulders, Darkmoon Vest, Veteran’s Dragonhide Belt, and Kilt of Living Growth.
Phuutu‘s look is very simple, but very lovely. Double-Stitched Woolen Shoulders, Crimson Silk Vest, Wraps of the San’layn, Thundercloud Grasps and Crimson Silk Pantaloons. Nyghtstorm‘s golden mog is beautiful! Crown of Destruction, Triumphant Shoulder Pads, Gauntlets, Girlde and Legplates,with Masterwork Breastplate and Sparkleshell Sabatons.

Fly Draenei Friday – Junk in the Trunk

Happy Friday everyone, hope you had a great week!   So, this week’s reader fly draenei doesn’t actually have junk in her trunk, more like gear in her bank, but that’s not as snazzy 😛


It’s another mog from Simon!  You can see his previous FDF submissions here and here.  Simon says: 

It’s amazing what you can create by simply throwing around what you’ve got in your bank…

Well, isn’t that the truth!

Head – Black Mageweave Headband
Shoulders – Regal Mantle
Robe – Replica Sorcerer’s Robe
Hands – Frostweave Gloves
Waist – Arcanist Belt
Staff – Crystalfire Staff 


Here’s another submission from a reader named Jason.  He didn’t have much to say, but his fly draenei looks like she’s ready to kick some butt!  She is wearing the chest, legs and belt from the Imbued Plate set, and wielding The Gleaming Ravager from the new Scarlet Monastery loot.  You go girl!! Or, man… you go man, since Jason is a dude and all ;P

Thanks for your pics guys, you rock!


Here’s some more rockin’ draenei from around Proudmoore:

This green and gold look by Mezramalda is very nicely done. Glimmering Mail PauldronsBurnished Tunic and Gloves, Soldier’s Girdle, Captain’s Leggings and Boots, and Skyfire Hawk-Bow. Starkanna is wearing a lovely red pantsuit. Red Mageweave HeadbandMantle of Three Terrors, Disguise of the Kumiho, Red Linen Vest, Infernoweave Gloves and Boots, and Buccaneer’s Pants.
I didn’t catch this Death Knight’s name, but her look definitely fits her class! Blood-Soaked Saronite Plated Spaulders, Warrior’s Embrace and Enchanted Adamantite Leggings are some of her key pieces. Aì subscribes to the ‘less is more’ idea for monk outfits. Imposing Bandana, Swamp Shoulders, Fizzle’s Vest, Red Belt of Gentle Persuasion, Warbear Woolies, and Darkbrand Boots for that invisible boots look.

Thanks for checking out another fabulous Fly Draenei Friday! Remember, if you would like me to feature your fly draenei, send me some screenies, I’d love to add you to the FDF fun!

5.2 Troll Gear Re-releases

When the troll raids Zul’Gurub and Zul’Aman were revamped as 5-man dungeons in Cataclysm, much of the of the original gear was either removed, or recolored for the updated loot tables.  Since this was before transmog, not many people had the old gear hanging around.  Blizzard seems to be keyed into how much people love to mog old sets though, and they have brought these back with the introduction of the Isle of Thunder!  All of these items drop off of mobs on the island, and except for the Corroded Hacker, they are all BOE, so check out your local auction house if you’re not able to visit the new dailies hub yet.  I really love this idea of re-introducing removed gear as random green drops.  I’m keeping my finger crossed that the old Scholomance and Scarlet Monastery gear re-appears soon.  In the mean time, check out these fly sets













 Transmog extras: Mooncloth Vest
This set actually comes with a dress whose model is already in game.
Since the pants and gloves are new, I wanted to show the off here.

For more info, check out wowhead’s write up of all the drops.  There are a ton more
weapons, a red and purple recolor of the Amani Regalia, and some pieces that were
missing from recolors of other sets.

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this blog!  When I first started blogging, I really had no plan in mind, I just wanted to write about my transmog stuff.  I must say I am very happy with the direction it’s gone in, and transmog is still as fun as it was back then!  I was looking over my very first post, and I got a good chuckle out of the last line:

“I couldn’t be happier to be back, well maybe if they allowed 2-handed maces to be transmogged into 2-handed swords, but I’ll take my gun-to-bow feature and just be quiet about it!”

Hehe, pretty much exactly one year later, I finally can 😀  Back then I really didn’t have a whole lot to blog about, and after I had posted the few mogs I had done, I wasn’t sure I had much else to say.  It wasn’t until after the WoW Factor show came to Proudmoore for a second time that I really took off. Inspired by the awesome Ironyca, I started a series of ‘mog-spotting’ posts that turned into Fly Draenei Friday.  FDF is my favorite part of my blog!  Being a finalist in that show also gave me the confidence to start posting more mogs I had in my MogIt wishlist.

I am super thankful to all the people who read the blog.  Who would have thought my draenei obsession would be interesting?  Just for some blogversary fun, I thought I’d highlight my most-read posts!

#3 – Jade Monk / Black Ninja Monk


I had thought that monk transmogs might be a popular topic, but holy cow do people love some draenei monks!  These two posts are pretty close in views, so I’m calling it a tie.  I love these two mogs, and I’m super happy other people do too!


#2 – How to Scale Shoulders in WoW Model Viewer


Holy giant shoulders!!  I first heard about WoW Model Viewer when I asked wonderful Kamalia how she got those lovely white backgrounds in her transmog pics.  I messed around with it a little, but the giant shoulder size bugged me.  When I started making my entries for the Mogolympics, I really wanted to do fun ‘themed’ pictures, so I decided to give WMV another shot.  I couldn’t find very good information on adjusting the shoulder sizes, so once I figured it out I wanted to help others make it work too 🙂


#1 – Random Mogness – Hunter Mogs


I joined Twitter last summer as a way to meet new bloggers and other Draenei Enthusiasts, and I have met awesome people who are both!  One of them is Laeleiweyn.  At some point after I did this post on hunter mogs, she recommended it to WoW Hunter’s Hall to add to their transmog guide, and they did!!  I’m still surprised at how many views this has gotten as a result, thanks Lae!


Well, there you have it!  Thanks again everyone and here’s to another year of staying fly! 😉

Fly Draenei Friday – Khemiä

It’s Friday, Friday, gotta look fly on Friday!  Ok, I know that video is ancient in internet years, and the song was really bad, but oh well! Clever hook is clever 😉  This week I have a couple of reader mogs from Khemiä on Khaz Modan(EU).  She says she is ‘some kind of crazy transmog person’ and tends to change her hunter’s mogs every two weeks she loves all her sets so much!  I love her sets too!  She sent over a ton of them, so you may be seeing more in a few weeks 😀


This is her blue set with the lovely August Celestials tabard.  It’s such a nice tabard, this outfit looks great with it!

Shoulders –  Living Earth Shoulders
Chest – Nexus-Strider Breastplate
Hands – Nexus-Strider Gloves
Waist – Nexus-Strider Belt
Legs – Nexus-Strider Legwraps
Feet – Abyssal Mail Greaves
Bow – Njorndar Bone Bow

My fly gal pal Satsuri did a post on different mogs with this tabard awhile ago if you’re looking to do something like this with another class.

This is her beautiful golden set, which she is currently wearing.  You can see in her amory pic she is accompanying the set with the Shado-Pan tabard, which looks amazing!

Shoulders – Coral-Barbed Shoulderpads
Chest – Energized Chestplate
Hands – Engraved Gauntlets
Waist – Masterwork Girdle
Legs – Radiant Leggings
Feet – Radiant Boots
Bow – Vishanka, Jaws of the Earth

I love the coordinating wolves, it’s a great touch.  Thanks so much for sending you mogs in Khemiä, keep it up, they are awesome!

If you would like me to feature your fly draenei, send me some screenies, I’d love to add you to the FDF fun!

As always, here’s some super fly peeps I’ve spotted around Azeroth.
I featured Jubilee last week and here she is looking awesome again!  Her set includes pieces from Amani Garb, with Starfire Waistband and Talon of Azshara. Lastright’s creepy shoulders look pretty cool with the rest of her outfit. Black Mageweave Set, with Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle.
Spotting a draenei man is like finding a rare spawn that no one is camping these days! Zaknafiend is sporting the Crystalforge Armor set. Szei may be a panda, but his outfit is so super fly, I had to show him off.  He’s wearing the Boneshredder set with the Stylin’ Purple Hat, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, and Ice Striker’s Cloak.

5.2 Weapon Transmog Changes

Now that patch 5.2 has arrived, we can finally mog some weapons into other weapons!  No more having to change out of your pretty pink outfit because you can’t find a mace to match 😀

The Burning CrusaderMasterwork Spiritblade DecimatorDespair

The change isn’t all encompassing, as you still can’t mog a dagger into a sword, but it is still pretty broad.  Two-handed maces, swords, and axes can be mogged into each other.  The same for one-handed maces, swords and axes.

Bladespire BroadaxeMasterwork Phantasmal HammerThe Willbreaker

Many of the weapons that were previously labeled as main-hand only have been changed to one-handed.  This is an excellent change, as I’m sure like me, you have tried to mog a new tanking mace into something with a different label.

Finally, great news for monks and druids – staves and polearms can be mogged into each other as well!  You do have to have the ability to equip both weapons, however.  So, sorry mages, no Hellreaver for you.

Wow Roleplay Gear has a nifty little chart and some additional details on the changes for more info.

Fly Draenei Friday – Samaramon

I’m back with yet another fabulous Fly Draenei Friday!  Thanks to everyone who is sending their fly draenei to me, they are amazing!  I think the week needs two Fridays so I can show them off faster 😀  This week we have an awesome draenei monk mog from the lovely Samaramon.  She has a blog called Samaramon’s World where she posts all kinds of beautiful mogs, and lately she has been posting unique eye-makeup ideas to match them.  How cool is that?!  She also has some fantastic fan art, so make sure you check her out!


Sam says…

“I know this might look too simple compared to other outfits, but I like the simplicity as I don’t think monks need a lot of gear to fight, it would hold them back.  I like this because the color scheme is kind of earthy, green and brown, but also kinda tribal.

Well Sam, in this case simple is beautiful, and I think your explanation of monks not needing huge pieces of gear is great!  Sam also said her monk is still leveling here, so kudos for looking good on the journey 😉
Thanks for sending in your wonderful mog!!
And now, some of my fantastic realm-mates!
Jubilee is another super fly monk with some fierce fist weapons! Spaulders of Black Betrayal, Insignia Chestguard and Leggings, with two of Theldurin’s Fist. I wasn’t able to get the best shot of Lunil, but her mog is so pretty!  Karna’s Poncho, Aldor Tabard, Anchorite’s Robes, Ebonweave Gloves, and High Councillor’s Sash.
 Alsu is looking hot in her Volcanic Vestments …and Pasito is soo cool in her Saltstone set with Heaving Plates of Protection.

Hope you enjoyed this edition of FDF! Remember, if you or someone you know is a Fly Draenei, send me a screenie and I’ll feature your mog here!
