Blizzard Store Transmog Helms – Cloth Mogs

Unless perhaps you’ve been under a rock, on vacation, or not playing WoW, you’ve surely heard the hullabaloo over the new items at the Blizzard Store.  Formerly a place to buy neato pets and mounts, they’ve now added 3 Cosmetic Armor Pieces you can spend your real-life gold on, and mog to your hearts’ content.  I have mixed feelings about these helms, they’re not really my style, and I think the price point is a little high.  I know everyone’s got quite an opinion on these things, and I won’t say either way if I support them being sold for money or not.  What I do support 100%, however, is the people who buy these and want to wear them.

There’s a rumor going around Twitter that some poor chap got kicked from LFR, and the reason in people’s boxes was that he was wearing one of these store helms.  To make it worse, the ‘rumor’ (I can’t speak to it’s truth as I wasn’t there) was started by some pretty high-profile podcasters who were making fun of this person.  This blog is not usually a place where I voice strong opinions, but without a doubt, my opinion of this situation is that it is asinine and unacceptable.

I’ve got a lot more to say about this, but I will digress and get to the pretty pictures.  In short, transmog is as much a form of self-expression as what class you play, and NO-ONE (not even you, Mr. Worgen DK in purple judgement) deserves to be publicly made fun of for what they choose to mog into.  So rock on, kid who got kicked from LFR, and comfort yourself in the thought that the gear you wanted wasn’t going to drop from that run anyways, and you were better off with another group 🙂

So ANYWAYS, here’s some cloth mogs I put together for the 3 helms.  If I’m feeling funky-fresh, I might do some of the other armors too!


This first helm you may have seen with the blue skull face effect.  I had no idea that was just an animation until I saw Mogoholic’s post about the helm.  It’s a pretty neat looking crown in still form!

Head – Crown of Eternal Winter

Shoulders – Valorous Shoulderpads of Sanctification (Priest)

Chest – Mooncloth Robe

Hands – San’layn Ritualist Gloves

Waist – Mindfire Waistband

This helm kinda scares me.  Those red eyes in the black, it’s like what you’d see if you said ‘Bloody Draenei’ in front of a mirror in dark 12 times.  BOO! /shudders

This helm is serious about its horns.  Please be careful not to put an eye out if you’re mogging this one.  Unless, that’s your intention… and the target is an orc… named Garrosh…

Head – Jewel of the Firelord

Shoulders – Firehawk Mantle (Mage)

Chest – Robe of the Waking Nightmare

Tabard of the Achiever

Hands – Sanctified Bloodmage Gloves

Waist – Embereye Belt

Umlauts over at Mog’s Addiction did a pretty awesome plate mog for this one, so check that out too!


P.S. You can scope out the helms for yourself on the Blizzard Store.

Fly Draenei Friday – Reader Roundup!

I’ve been getting so many great mogs from you guys lately!  I want to make sure I get everyone’s posted before it’s been forever since they sent them, so a reader roundup is in order 😀


First up is Chakorii of Shadowsong (US).  Chakorri’s mog reminds the very first reader mog I ever got!  I love the screenie she sent in, this mount is great for showing off your mog while getting around.

Helm – Fiery Beholder Eye 
Shoulders – Vengeful Gladiator’s Mail Spaulders
Chest – Energized Chestplate
Hands – Scarlet Gauntlets
Belt – Ornate Girdle
Legs – Firemane Leggings 
Feet – Brigade Boots
Fist Weapon – Calamity’s Grasp 
Shield – Ward of the Red Widow

Figura - Dalaran photoshoot 4

Next we have Figura, who enjoys playing supermodel in her mog photoshoots 😉  The shoulders and waist she’s chosen her are perfect accents to this robe!  This whole set can be crafted with the Moonshroud Robe and Gloves if you happen to have a tailor.

Shoulder – Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle
Chest – Heigan’s Putrid Vestments
Hands – Gloves of the Fallen Wizard
Waist – Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Cord of Meditation
Weapon – Wand of Prismatic Focus


Boxer of Kil’jaeden is Cooling Off in an Icy Ensemble.  We all know how challenging it is to find blue mail, but Boxer was up to the challenge and said they had fun putting this set together!

Shoulder: Relentless Gladiators Linked Spaulders
Chest: Icy Scale Chestguard
Waist: Icy Scale Belt
Hands: Spiritwalker Gauntlets
Legs: Shifting Camouflage Pants
Boots: Tsunami Boots
Mace: Jol’Grum’s Frozen Mace

Beathea from Shadow Council is rocking the Sundered Mail set. The colors of this set look great with her dark skin tone, and the wolf shoulders are a fun accent!

Head – Surestrike Goggles v2.0
Shoulders – Mantle of the Sea Wolf
Chest – Sundered Chestpiece
Gloves – Sundered Gauntlets
Waist – Sundered Waistband
Legs – Sundered Legguards
Boots – Sundered Footwraps
Bow – Brutal Gladiator’s Longbow


Necron has a nice unique take on the red leggings mog going on.  I’m guessing by her screenie being taken at the Darkmoon Faire carousel that this is a leveling set, it would be a great mog for your heirlooms!

Head – Red Mageweave Headband
Shoulders – Sea Song Epaulettes
Chest – Corsair’s Overshirt
Waist – Captain Sanders’ Sash
Hands – I’m not sure what gloves she’s used, but any of these short gloves in black could work
Legs – Cindercloth Pants
Feet – Maybe Invisiboots?! 😉

Last, but def not least, is Kolenzo, who loves to mix and match her mage tier pieces with priest tier.  I don’t see a lot of people in that helm, looks great!

Helm – Lifespark Visage
Shoulders – Conqueror’s Kirin Tor Shoulderpads
Chest – Robes of Faltered Light
Scryer’s Tabard
Gloves – Handwraps of Flowing Thought
Waist – Nigh-Invulnerability Belt

That badass staff she has is Dragonwrath, which unfortunately you can’t mog because it’s a legendary, but it still looks awesome!


Thanks so much for sending all your mogs in!  I love seeing what all the Draenei enthusiasts out there are wearing 😀  If you want to submit your mog, here’s how you can.

Mage Mogs!

Well, I really thought I was going to post about my awesome mog I have planned for Drayney with Widow’s Clutches.  I unlocked the vendor who sells them in Molten Front, but /sigh… I need 125 more tokens before he will actually sell anything to me!  For normal people, this should only take 5 days, but I have a horrible time doing old content dailies every day.  I took me about a year and a half to get my Netherdrake mounts, and I still have about 3/4 of the Argent Tournament stuff to get :/  Oh wells, instead here’s a post about what my dear mage has been wearing in the mean time!


I was wearing my green mog for a really long time to go with that cool dragon staff.  Then, I got a wand as a weapon and kept that mog with dual star wands!  I really like the model of the Brightcloth Robe, but after awhile, I wasn’t really feeling the shoulders I was wearing.  I needed something a little more-magey.  After a little MogIt browsing, I decided on this purple outfit.  Pretty similar to the green one, but these shoulders say “Hey!  I’m a mage!” 😉


Helm – Incanter’s Cowl

Shoulders – Mantle of the Tempest

Chest – Elder’s Robe

Gloves – Gloves of Penitence

Waist – Cord of Cacophonous Cawing

(Above: Waist – High Councillor’s Sash, Dagger – Edge of Oppression, Off-Hand – Regal Star)


After I got the sha-touched sword from LFR, I went back to my green mog for a few minutes, but I really didn’t like how the greens only almost matched with the sword, lol.  In preparation for my upcoming mog, I picked up the Embersilk Robes off the AH, and then found this awesome helm while cleaning out my bank.  So, I thought, why not a mix a little of the green with red?!



Head – Cowl of the Illidari High LordShroud of the Nathrezim

Chest – Embersilk Robes

Waist – Councillor’s Sash

Gloves – Mindbender Handguards

Sword – Splintered Icecrown Parapet

Off-Hand – Watcher’s Star

I’m wearing Black Mageweave Leggings with both outfits, but any of the skimpy leggings should work.
So, there’s a brief look at what Drayney has been wearing lately.  Each of the looks went through several iterations before I settled on these two, but I’ll spare you the details 😉  I have some MogIt mock-ups I did to go with the LFR sha-touched sword I’ll try and get posted this week.  By then, I hopefully will have done the dailies to get my damned pink gloves!

Fly Draenei Friday – Ryi’s Fly Too!

Before we dive on in to this week’s FDF, I want to let you guys know about a transmog site that’s new to me.  Honeypants over at Mogoholic posted about it earlier this week, and I think it’s about to make putting together my FDF’s a whole lot easier 😉  This site is Transmog Viewer.  It’s like the armory, but instead of listing your equipped gear, it lists your mogged gear!  Whew, I’ve been doing a lot of tabbing between the armory, wowhead, and my blog posts, and now I can just copy the links from there *evil grin*!  Thanks for sharing that Honeypants!

This weeks mogs are from Ryi at Doomhammer (EU).  She said her bf bullied her into sending in some pics, but I bet it was more gentle prodding, and I’m glad she did!


This is Ryi’s Dragonstalker Recolor set, I call it her ‘you might think I’m a hunter, but I’ll lava burst you in the face!’ set.  That might be too long a name.  I’m little jealous she was able to get her hands on that belt though, my shaman who wants to wear it is not on the same server, or faction, as my leatherworker who can make it :/  Also, it’s BOP, sadface!

Shoulders – Dragon-Quake Shoulderguards

Chest – Ebon Netherscale Breastplate

Gloves – Warstrike Gauntlets

Belt – Ebon Netherscale Belt

Legs – Scaled Greaves of the Marksman

Feet – Black Ogre Kickers


Another of Ryi’s sets.  This one is very pretty, that Tier 14 chest looks amazing with the Tier 10 pieces!  Defiler’s Mail Pauldrons top of this set that goes perfectly with her little dino pet!

Thanks so much for sending in your mogs Ryi, and thanks for encouraging her, Ryi’s bf 😀


As always, now for some fly Proudmoore peeps!

Haruuka is so pretty in pink and purple! Hallowed Crown, Mana-Sphere Shoulderguards, Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Energis Armwraps, Cord of Sanctification and Staff of Infinite Mysteries. Ahli‘s set is simple yet elegant. Knight’s Mail with Knight’s Pauldrons, and Precious’ Ribbon for a little peek of pink.
Amaravati is rocking the farmer look!  Her’s is pretty similar to my farmer mog, but those blue shoulders are even better! Arcane Cover, Skein Woven Mantle, Blue Overalls, Yellow Lumberjack Shirt, Black Mageweave Gloves and Mistscape Boots. I was totally confused when I first saw Teniitha.  I was on my pally at the time, and I though at first someone used the look-alike elixir on me, but wait, I’m not wearing a helm.  Then I realized I wasn’t even wearing this outfit and it was just a super fly twinsie!  Purple Judgement helm, shoulder, gloves, belt and hands with Revenant chest and legs.

Fly Draenei Around the Web

Why hello there Draenei enthusiasts!  I hope you’ve been enjoying the steady stream of Fly Draenei Fridays 🙂  I’ve been working on a few mogs of my own, but I really want to wear them, and haven’t completed any of them yet!  One outfit I’m putting together for my mage includes gloves from a Molten Front vendor.  Kids these days think the Golden Lotus are a sucky grind, they have nothing on these Hyjal peeps from the last expansion, lol!  At 13 tokens a day, I needed 150 tokens to unlock the first stage of these dailies, and at 30 tokens a day, 150 more to I think unlock the vendor guy.  That second stage is really only 5 days, but ya know when you can’t bring yourself to do the dailies every day, it kinda drags out…

So, I’ve been seeing some super fly mogs on other blogs and thought I’d share them in case you haven’t seen them!

From Soco at Vault of Light’s post Just the Two of Us.  Korla’s green and red combo is superb, and even thought she’s a night elf, Telnari is looking pretty fly too!
Mataoka at Sugar & Blood’s For the Alliance! mog. So hawt 😀
Amerisia, Champion of Freezing Her Buns Off from Umlaut Paradots at Mog’s Addiction.  Loving this mog, the Vanguard chest with Tier 9 shoulders is something I’ve thought about, but didn’t want to spend the gold on at the AH 😉
Ireenia’s Harmony Set from Efffy at Awaiting the Muse.  I love hoods on draenei monks, and this one is fantastic!
Luxypie at Sunshine, Luxypie and Rainbows started blogging a few months ago.  This is her priest Veluxia, and OMG!, if you remember my Ultimate Dream Mog, you know why I am gaga-bonkers in love with hers!

So many super fly and inspiring draenei around the web!  If you’ve seen any fly bloggers I should be checking out, let me know!
