Theramore Tabard Transmogs – Cloth

While the Horde may be rewarded for their gruesome destruction of Theramore with a Mini Mana Bomb, proud members of the Alliance are honored with this lovely tabard for the efforts in retaking Theramore.  Here are a few cloth sets to remember Theramore with.

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

Embersilk Robes Transmog

This lovely robe is the perfect cherry red.  It shares it’s model with the Felcloth Robe.  I have one on the auction house I just can’t unload, so I thought I’d make a mog for it instead!  I decided to go with a red and green look to actually play off the belt.  I sincerely hope they come out with more low profile cloth belt models like this one, maybe without the screaming green gem in the middle 🙂

Aqua and Gold Cloth Mog

Here’s a random mog from my ever-growing Mogit set-list! The shoulders in this outfit are sort of an oddity.  They are a recolor of the Classic-Wow Dungeon Set shoulders. The dungeon sets were all recolored and added in BC, but the odd things about these shoulders is they were added in Wrath. There are no other pieces to the set, just this random model from a quest in Halls of Lightning.  Even the other rewards for the quest are strictly Wrath models.  I think they should add more little gems like this.  Whole sets recolored are cool and all, but little hidden transmog pieces are definitely more fun.

Feathered headdresses are also fun.  I’m not sure it really has the same feel as the other pieces, but I really liked the way the little feathers coordinate.  I used plainer gloves to pull it all together.

aqua cloth

Head – Nimar’s Tribal Headdress
Shoulders – Lightning Infused Mantle
Chest – Robes of the Guardian Saint
Gloves – Arachnidian Gloves
Belt – Belt of Arcane Storms
Legs – Black Mageweave Leggings

My Mage Mog: A Shoulder for All Specs

Wow, it’s been forever since I posted an outfit I’m actually wearing in game!  I feel like I’ve been trying to make these mage outfits work for just as long.  I get frustrated by the selection of cloth belts, and then just don’t post about them.  I’ve decided to just make the post, and then I can move on with my Mage’s life! Lol.  For a long time, Drayney was mogged into the Brutal Gladiator’s Regalia.  It was a quick and easy mog that I used in place of what I wished she was wearing: The Field Marshal’s Regalia.  That is such an awesome set, and I was pretty heartbroken the first day of transmog to find out I couldn’t use any of the pieces.  I truly hope they lift that restriction on day, because I have honestly never seen anyone, not even a level 60, in any of that pinky-purpley goodness.

Anyhow, enough of that sad story!  Here’s a spirit lifter: When I was farming for the staff for the ‘arcane’ version of this look, I finally got the Swift White Hawkstrider from Magister’s Terrace!  It’s the first rare mount in my collection, and I’m glad I went all the way to Kael’ everytime, even though the staff dropped off the second boss.

So, the idea I had going on here was using the same shoulder model in an outfit for all three mage specs.  I used the Arcanist Mantle, from the Mage Tier 1 set, and the red and blue recolors.  I’ll start with the ‘Arcane Mage’ version, using the original Arcanist Mantle.  I was a runner up in the last Proudmore WoW Factor show in this look.  It’s my favorite of the three, although I switched to the ‘Fire Mage’ set for the Midsummer Fire Festival.


Arcane Mage:

Shoulders – Arcanist Mantle

Chest – Alanna’s Embrace

Hands – Jumanza Grips

Waist – Ruthless Gladiator’s Cord of Accuracy

Staff – Warpstaff of Arcanum

fire action

Fire Mage:

Head – Cowl of the Grand Engineer

Shoulders – Mindrage Pauldrons

Chest – Simple Robe

Hands – Red Mageweave Gloves

Waist – Voidweave Cilice

Staff – Rod of the Blazing Light

fire mogit

I would prefer not to have a belt with this version. The dress already has the empire waist, so it’s like she’s wearing two belts! Perhaps Blizzard will take cue from the Acherus Knight’s Girdle, and make invisible belts for all armor classes! I’m going to cross my fingers for that, because the version below could use it too.


Frost Mage:

Head – Augural Shroud

Shoulders – Frozen Shadoweave Shoulders

Chest – Robes of the Exalted

Wrists – Wristguards of Subterranean Moss

Hands – Safegaurd Gloves

Waist – Replica Virtuous Belt

Staff (not shown) – Staff of Divine Infusion

Snow White and the Seven Dwarves

snow white and seven dwarfsSleepy, Sneezy, Happy, Doc, Snow White, Bashful, Dopey, and Grumpy

I had so much fun with mogging Little Red Riding Hood, I’ve been trying to decide on another character to mog ever since.   I came up with this Snow White a while ago, but it didn’t really excite me until I realized I could mog the seven dwarves!  Well, six dwarves and one gnome, turns out WoW dwarves don’t come without beards.  I had lots of fun with WoW Model Viewer making all the guys and playing with poses.  It might be my new favorite mog program.

This outfit is a little cheating, as the top is a tabard and shirt combo.  The second outfit is an ok version, but I wasn’t really thrilled with it.

Head – Runecloth Headband

Shoulders – Merciless Gladiator’s Silk Amice

Cloak – Ravager’s Cloak

Chest – Robes of the Battleguard

Shirt – Stormwind Doublet

Tabard – Private’s Tabard

Hands – Sage’s Gloves

Wrist- Sage’s Bracers

Waist – Cincture of Woven Reeds

Legs – Cindercloth Pants

The top here is the Windchanneller’s Tunic, and the bottom is the Replica Virtuous Skirt.

I also made a “if Snow White was a ninja” outfit.  I know Draenei can’t currently wear leather, but oh well…

Feet – Fine Leather Boots

And finally, the dwarves (all items are cloth):

Transmog the Transmogrifier

When looking for transmog inspiration, NPC’s are a natural choice.  There are some great ones out there including Stormwind Guard, Orgrimmar Grunt, and Dark Ranger.  But, what about the guys that make the moggin’ possible?  Behold, the ethereals!

These guys have a really cool look going on.  Probably because they are made of purple light wrapped in bandages, but their clothes are neat too. So, here’s a few looks that capture the ‘feel’ of the transmogrifier, reforger and void storage guy.

First up, the transmogrifier guy! I tried to hit on his dark grey and purple color scheme and detailed skirt, along with flared out gloves, and of course, a hood! I normally don’t do helms in my outfits, but the cool hoods are what got me thinking about these mogs.

Warpweaver Hashom – Transmogrifier

“Mogger” mog, with a few priest-only pieces:

Head – Cowl of Absolution (priest only)

Shoulders – Soulstealer Mantle

Chest – Robes of Arugal

Hands – Savage Gladiator’s Mooncloth Gloves (priest only)

Waist – Clutch of Andros

Mace – Cudgel of Consecration

Off-hand – Temple Crystal Fragment


“Mogger” mog, sleeveless and all-classes version:

Head – Titan-Forged Hood of Dominance

Shoulders – Soulstealer Mantle

Chest – Necropile Robe

Hands – Bloodmage Gloves

Waist – Clutch of Andros

Mace – Cudgel of Consecration

Off-hand – Temple Crystal Fragment

mogger sleeveless2

Next, the reforger. He was a little more difficult as his coloring is a really light grey that doesn’t seem to appear much in existing gear.

Thaumaturge Rafir – Arcane Reforger
reforger grey

Reforger grey:

Head – Corp’rethar Ceremonial Crown

Shoulders – Necropile Mantle

Chest – Raiments of the Iron Council

Hands – Relentless Gladiator’s Mooncloth Gloves (priest only)

Waist – Highlander’s Cloth Girdle

Staff – Staff of Divine Infusion


Reforger white:

Head – Cowl of Benevolence

Shoulders – Soulstealer Mantle

Chest – Victor’s Robes

Hands – Safeguard Gloves

Waist – Astralaan Belt

Staff – Staff of Divine Infusion

reforger white

And finally, the void storage guy. This guy gave me a hard time, and I’m not 100% about the look, but I’ve tried so many pieces, I’m just gonna go with this one 🙂 Since there is no ‘sprakly purple ball’ main-hand weapon, I went with a sparkly spinny mace in it’s place

Vaultkeeper Razhid – Void Storage
void mog2

Head – Royal Headband

Shoulders – Necropile Mantle

Chest – any sleeveless chest will work here, I went with Black Silk Vest, and have theWound Dressing shirt on underneath as a nod to the ethereal’s wrappings

Hands – Truefaith Gloves

Waist – Master’s Belt

Legs – Pants of the Naaru

Feet – Silver-Thread Boots

Mace – Hammer of Atonement

Off-hand – Netherwing Spiritualist’s Charm

WTB a Draenei Warlock

According to WoW Realm Pop, Warlocks are the least played class, right behind Shamans, at 7.6% if players on US Realms.  In a WoW Insider article posted back in April, they revealed that GuildOx had determined that Warlocks are the least played class in heroic raiding. Cynwise even has a whole series of posts dedicated to the Decline and Fall of Warlocks in Cataclysm.   According to my own opinion, the real reason for the warlock’s low level of desirability is the fact that Draenei cannot be warlocks.  As an example, lets look at the Shaman.  Currently 7.1% of US Alliance players are Shamans (via Realm Pop), as compared to the 0% of Alliance players that were Shaman before the class was opened to Draenei.

Ok, I know that is the worst example ever, since no Alliance race could be Shamans before Draenei. Hey, a gal can exaggerate every once in a while right?

Eredar Twins in Sunwell Plateau

Now, I am well aware that Draenei lore does not really support them being Warlocks.  The name Draenei means “exiled ones” in the Eredun language.  The Draenei were originally Eredar, who, under Velen, fled the corruption on their home world brought about by the fallen titan Sargeras.  The remaining eredar, led by Kil’jaeden and Archimonde were eventually turned into a race of warlocks and sided with the Burning Legion (wowiki).  The Draenei settled on the planet they named Draenor and led a relatively peaceful life with the native orcs, until they too were corrupted by Kil’jaeden himself, who had been hunting the Draenei since they peaced-out of the whole ‘siding with the Burning Legion’ deal.

Archimonde in Mount Hyjal Summit

So, Draenei have not had a nice time with warlocks, I get it, but that doesn’t mean I can’t want to play one!  I have tried to play warlocks of other races, I had a 71 gnome warlock who was deleted, along with a level 12 goblin who was also deleted.  Currently my human lock is 38, and my blood elf lock is 36.  I just can’t get into it.  I am convinced if I had a Draenei lock, she’d be the fasted alt to 85 yet.  It would be the best, I’d probably make her my main.  I’d have a felhunter named Phuumon, and an imp named Kazpit.  Maybe she wouldn’t zoom to 85, I’d turn of my xp and farm dungeon gear so I could turn my xp back on and level up through bg’s.  That probably sounds even more ridiculous than the subject of this post, but that is exactly how I leveled my hunter, lol.

I’d also get wear the most amazing warlock gear, like this:


Chest & Shoulders – Warlock Tier 6Robe of the Malefic and Mantle of the Malefic

Waist – Anetheron’s Noose

Hands – Widow’s Clutches

Staff – Staff of Sinister Claws

Or this! It isn’t a warlock-only set, but it would make a lot more sense than on a Mage:

Head – Horns of Justified Sins or Felheart Horns

Shoulders – Hatefury Mantle

Chest – Elder’s Robe

Waist – Councillor’s Sash

Hands – Gloves of Pentinence

Staff – Staff of Beasts

And, finally:

Super Creepy Warlock Shoulders – Valorous Plagueheart Shoulderpads

Chest – Watcher’s Tunic

Waist – Mage-Fury Girdle

Hands – Hands of Darkness

Legs – Elegant Leggings

Feet – Saltarello Shoes

Staff – Zhar’doom, Greatstaff of the Devourer


So, if you’ve stuck with me this long, you’re probably wondering how I think they should incorporate Draenei warlocks in lore.  Well if you are (or aren’t) here it is.  During a quest in the Swamp of Sorrows, Velen states, “Even now, the true battle between the forces of Light and Darkness approaches. We will all be called to join, and in the face of this conflict, all mortal suffering will be meaningless”.  The Warcraft story will eventually come back around to the Burning Legion.  They’re out there still, and they need to be stopped.  We’ve all heard that the best way to fight your enemy is to use their own strength against them.  If the Draenei are to be at the forefront of this battle, they are going to need understand warlocks inside and out.  To acheive this understanding, a brave group of Draenei will need to study the fel arts and learn how to use it. Only then, will they be able to harness this power against the evil that has hunted them for so long.  I will be that Draenei, and I’ll look good doing it!

Little Red Riding Hood

Taelz – photo courtesy of WoW Factor

At the recent Proudmoore WoW Factor Show this Worgen gentleman garnered quite a conversation.  The judges loved his transmog, although we were all quite confused when he pulled out his off-hand weapon.  He ended up winning 2.5k, but the best part was what he reminded one of the judges of.  I believe it was Ironyca who said he looked like the Big Bad Wolf!  She said she would love for someone to show up as Red Riding Hood and pose with him.  Well, that got my gears spinning!  I wasn’t able to quickly acquire the pieces for a Red Riding look, but I decided to put some looks together in Mog-It for fun.

Unfortunately, cloaks look pretty silly on Draenei, so it kind of looks better on a human.  My baby warlock, Zzyzx was kind enough to guest-pose for a comparison.


Little Red Drayney


Little Red Zzyzx’s cloak
looks much better.


Head – Cowl of the Grand Engineer
Shoulders – Mantle of Tirisfal
Cloak – any red cloak will do, Draynee is wearing Phoenix-Wing Cloak, and Zzyzx, Vibrant Silk Cape
Chest – Airfeild Defender’s Garb
Gloves – Imperial Red Gloves
Waist – Beach Party Thong

The Basket is the Egg Basket from Noblegarden. While it can’t be used for transmog, it’s fun to run around with!

I also put together some alternative looks for variety:

Fancy Red Riding Hood

Head – Cowl of the Grand Engineer

Shoulders – Mantle of Tirisfal

Cloak – Ravager’s Cloak

Chest – Mooncloth Robe

Shirt – Sawbones Shirt

Gloves – Imperial Red Gloves

one I really like with the dress, Historian’s Sash

Shoulders – Consortium Mantle

Cloak – Sergeant’s Cape

Chest – Imperial Red Tunic

Gloves – Replica Virtuous Gloves
