Fly Draenei Friday – Level 25!


Well, it finally happened, Pretty Fly for a Draenei is all grown up!  With my husband getting a sudden case of altoholism and our old friend Boom coming back and playing his draenei we finally hit guild level 25!  It’s been a long-ass time coming, and I’m not sure I even want to compute how much of that 80 trillion guild xp I grinded out myself, so I won’t!  I’m just gonna do a /dance and celebrate 😀

Speaking of my old buddy Boom, he was in LFR the other day on his hunter and met a fantastic draenei enthusiast.  Turns out LFR mage recognized the guild name and was asking if Boom was me, or if I was on too.  They were bummed I was not logged on because they wanted to show me their new mage mog, and love my blog!  I’ve just got to say, LFR mage, you made my day, week and month all at once.  I was pretty stoked hear about that, and Boom said I was like a celebrity now, lol!  I’d love to see your mog LFR mage!  Don’t forget you can send it to me, or post it in the comments here.  Hugs and kisses to all my readers, you guys rock!

Here’s some super fly mogs from you rockin’ draenei lovers!

Teal is mogged out in the Ruthless Gladiator’s Pursuit with Surestrike Goggles v2.0.  She says she likes how the goggles give her look a ‘Marksman’ feel.  I like how her and her faithful dragonhawk Opiate are all pretty and purply!  Great place for the screenshot too 😉
When I got John’s e-mail, I had to do a double take.  I thought I read in the subject that Sharade was a shadow priest, but when I looked at the pic, I thought it was Lae’s purple monk mog she wanted to put together.  It’s great that the top and pants model come in cloth and leather, because they look awesome on draenei!  Nice job John!
Shoulders – Amice of the Convoker
Main hand – Fang of Kalecgos
Meet Arcana, she’s a moggaholic!  This is her My Little Cloud Pony paladin mog, so cute!
And here’s a couple of awesome mogs from Proudmoore!
Vurve looks hot hot hot in her red mail mog, I really like this one! Erupting Volcanic Shoulderwraps, Bloodlust Breastplate, Belt and Gauntlets, Inferno Forged Leggings, and Mercurial Greaves. Prideth‘s mog is sooo cute! I can’t say I’ve seen anything like it, so kudo’s for creativity 🙂 Fireheart Skullcap, Green Silken Shoulders, Green Woolen Vest, Red Lumberjack Shirt, Quet’zal’s Crackling Cord, Windwool Gloves and Pants.

Thanks everybody for reading and sending in your fabulous mogs! 😀

Alt Appreciation – Death Knight Week

Laeleiweyn over at World of Lae has started an Alt Appreciation series, and this week is Death Knight Week!  What a fun idea!  Since it’s all about showing your alt’s some love, I’m going to veer off the Draenei path for a moment and show some appreciation for my former main, now a much-neglected alt.


Lideyviah was the second character I made when I started playing WoW.  My first toon was a hunter that I leveled up by following my husband around, lol.  At the time he played a Death Knight, and he’s pretty cool, so I wanted one too.  I leveled her up all on my own, and that’s when I really got hooked on the game.  She was my main for a very long time.  I raided with her, did every achievement possible, and hit exalted with as many reps as I could.  Lid was actually my first 90 in Pandaria, but I wasn’t really feeling playing melee anymore, and I haven’t really touched her since.  I’ve thought about transferring her over to a draenei, but I don’t think I ever really could.  She’s pretty special to me, and even if I don’t play her, I’m content with her staying just as she is.  I visit her every once in a while and have warm fuzzy feelings 😉

Here’s a Lid-inspired mog!  This is one of my favorite swords in the game, I loved dual-wielding these back in the old days 😉
For even more Death-Knight love, check out my other Lid-esque mog in purple and my blood DK set.  And yes, I have a serious love for tier 10, lol!

Fly Draenei Friday – I want my FDF!

Howdy draenei enthusiasts! Man, I’ve got a lot going on lately!  I’ve really been wanting to post more, but too much stuff in my brain.  If you haven’t heard (possibly because I didn’t announce it), I’m going to Blizzcon this year!!  I was fortunate enough to go to the last one on the first day at the very last minute, thanks to an awesome friend.  This year we’ve got our own tickets and plenty of advance notice 😉  So, crazy me thinks I ought to go as Draynee!  I’ve been spending a lot time dinking around with the outfit, and perhaps I shouldn’t have attempted something as complicated as judgement shoulders for my first cosplay… I’ve had a few mis-starts, but I think I’m going to be able to make it work!  So, that’s one of the multitudes of things I’ve been trying to do at once, hopefully I’ll get a post put together about it soon.

In the meantime, Umlaut emailed me his latest super fly mog last week, and was hoping to debut it to you guys before posting it on his blog.  Well, last Friday my rl guild dinged level 5, so I didn’t get a FDF put together (in case that makes no sense, it was my 5th wedding anniversary!).  But, better late than never, right?  Here’s Amerisia’s ‘Lofty’ new mog, you can check out more shots of it over at Mogsaddiction!

Lofty in Pandaria_03


Shoulders – Swiftsteel Shoulders
Thanks for sending her in Umlaut, and thanks for your patience 😉  Here’s some more awesome mogs from my inbox!
Hamadi says he’s having loads of fun being a all shiney as a warrior in paladin gear (Lightforge Armor).  He’s also taking advantage of being one of the only classes that can wield polearms and staves and has mogged his polearm into Key to the Planes.
Chakorii was featured in my last Reader Roundup FDF, and wrote in to say he got a TON of whispers and comments afterwards.  How cool is that?!  Here’s his newest mog, and a beautiful screenshot.  I love the weather in Valley of the Four Winds, it really makes up for the lack of weather in the rest of the world.  Anyhow, Chakorri said this set was inspired by his raid team’s resto druid (and guild “mom”).  It looks great!

Helm – Firebird’s Headpiece

Shoulders – Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mail Spaulders

Chest – Fel Iron Chain Tunic

Gloves – Firebird’s Gloves

Belt – Belt of the Gladiator

Legs – Legwraps of the Raging Elements

Mace – Tihan, Scepter of the Sleeping Emperor

Shield – Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Shield Wall


Mythrii 2
This is Mythrii in a nice red and gold number!  Those shoulders look really great with this set, and of course, the Crown of Flame goes with everything 😉

And to round out what is apparently Fly Shaman Friday is Maria.  She’s always had a fondness for these shoulders and said it was fun to try and match a set to them!
Belt – Stormwrap
Boots – Tsunami Boots (Invisi-boots)
Woo!  Thanks everyone for sending in your mogs, I love getting to post and share them 😀

MogIt Armory

A few weeks ago I got a DM on Twitter from Aelo, the fabulously talented co-creator of MogIt!  After attempting to help them out, I poked a little as to what was going on.  Turns out they were working on a new plugin for MogIt – MogIt Armory!  With this plugin, you can see what over 11,000 different players are wearing, pulled straight from their Armory profiles.  In addition to random players, Aelo has featured what we Mog bloggers are wearing!  Mog bloggers’ pics have a ‘Featured’ banner in the corner, and when you click on it, it gives you a link to our blogs.


There’s Draynee 😀  To see the bloggers, you simply load up the plugin, pick an armor class, and then choose a race.  A lot of peeps are under female Blood Elves, but if you poke around, say male Dwarves, you can catch Zidux, and Zazzy is under female Goblin!


If you pick ‘All’, it will show you all the transmogs on your character’s race.

Seeing what a sampling of people are wearing is pretty neat!  I’ve only really poked around the plate, and there sure is a lot of purple judgement and revenant sets 😛  The only downside is that if the person has a guild tabard on, it shows your guild tabard, but since mine is super fly, that is ok, lol!
*Update – Under Catalogue – Show Filters there is an option to show or hide tabards and shirts.  Also, you can filter by class there!

This is a really great look, love the sword!
 Like this one too!
You can download MogIt_Armory from Curse, and if you’re on Twitter, make sure and give Aelo some love for the best add-on ever 😉

Fly Draenei Friday – Super Soco

Happy Friday my fellow Draenei Enthusiasts!  I’ve got to say, you guys rock!  My inbox is brimming with super fly mogs you’ve sent me!  This week we’ve got another mog from Soco at Vault of Light.  She’s always rocking an awesome mog, and I must admit, I’d love to see her MogIt wishlist 😉  You can check out Soco’s previous FDF here.

Korla pink shoulders

I managed to get these shoulders this week, ones I’ve wanted for a really long time. I have the orange ones from normal Firelands for a really long time so I was super stoked to finally get these beauties during an achievement run!

Head – Heroes’ Circlet of Faith
Shoulders – Mantle of Closed Doors
Chest – Queen Azshara’s Dressing Gown
Hands – Ebonweave Gloves
Waist – Belt of False Dignity
Staff – Chelley’s Staff of Dark Mending

Congrats on your shoulders, they really are beautiful!  My poor mage longs after either pair, but she would need to actually go into Firelands to get them 😉

Soco’s dress is from Archeology, and it is BOA if you’re into flying around and digging up your mog items.  For you mages out there, it is the same model as the Tier 7 chest – Valorous Frostfire Robe.


Thanks Soco, you look lovely as always 😀  Here’s some fly gals from Proudmoore to look at too!

Raileena‘s got one of my favorite plate items on in her mog! The Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Clasp of Cruelty is so cool!  I used the Malevolent version in my Paladin’s latest mog. Casque of Flame, Pauldrons of Edward the Odd, Templar chest, gloves and legs, and Sapphiron’s Scale Boots.
Kajia‘s set is a nice mix of golden mail from various sets.  Crown of DestructionBattleforge Shoulderguards, Masterwork Breastplate, Engraved Gauntlets, Ornate Girdle, Radiant Leggings, and Masterwork Boots.
Haziell has a nice twist on one of my favorite DK sets.  Sanctified Scourgelord’s Shoulders, chest, gloves and legs, with Warbelt of Sealed Pods and Stonestep Boots.
Rhonii has a nice simple cloth mog. Black Mageweave Shoulders, Vest and Leggings, Bracers of Displaced Air, Black Mageweave Gloves, Motherseed Cord, and Storm-Sing Sandals.
