Paladin Week – Draynee Love


It’s Paladin Week over at Lae’s Alt Appreciation!  I don’t really have any alts or mains, I sorta play whoever strikes me when I log in, but I definitely didn’t want to miss this opportunity to gush over my paladin.  Draynee was my first alliance character, as I was a Hordie when I first started.  The story behind her making her is a little funny.  I had a falling out with a good friend I used to twink PVP with (back before twinks had their own battlegrounds).  I was pretty upset about it, and decided to make an alliance character on our battlegroup in hopes of running into him in the lowbie bg’s.  I chose draenei because I thought the noises they made when they get hit were kind of ridiculous.  I picked Draynee as her name, based on how I originally thought ‘draenei’ was pronounced (I was informed it was ‘dray-nigh’).  So, that’s how my love affair with space goats started.  I never did run into that person in the bg’s, as he quit playing before I got to level 39.  The good news is we are friends again, although he still doesn’t play WoW.  I ended up ditching the original Draynee to re-roll on Proudmoore after discussing possible future Alliance play with my husband, we wanted to pick a pretty high-pop server.  I’m glad I did, since dabbling in the blue side turned into a full-time affair, and Proudmoore’s a great server 😀

So, before I get to the mog goodness, I thought I’d update you guys on why I haven’t posted a whole heck of a lot lately.  If you don’t already, you should follow me on Twitter!  I post updates over there all the time.  Even if you don’t use Twitter, you can click on the link over to the left and see what I’m up to, without an account 🙂  Anyhow, I mentioned it before, but I’ve been working pretty much every day on my Draynee cosplay for Blizzcon!  I’m going in her purple Judgement/Revenant set.  This is my first cosplay, and pretty much first time ‘building’ anything, so there has been some challenges.  It’s coming together though, and I’m getting pretty excited about it!  I’ll probably post some tutorials later, after I get all the pieces finished, but here’s some sneak peeks!


Here’s my almost-finished Judgement shoulder.  I still need to add some details, but I think it’s pretty cool!  At first I attempted to carve this out of expanding foam like the amazingly talented Kamui, but I am not an sculpture artist.  So plan #2 that my husband found for me was to use the Pepakura program to print out the parts for a 3d model, which I made out of posterboard.  Then I added a few layers of glue and brown paper, and sprayed the inside with the expanding foam for structure.


This is Despair, all ready for priming and painting.  The sword is a mix of Pepakura parts, floral foam pieces, and some expanding foam.  The handle is a paper towel roll filled with expanding foam and a wood dowel for strength!  The weeks until Blizzcon are getting shorter, so I expect to be working even more on this, but fear not draenei enthusiasts, I’m still around and the blog’s not going anywhere!  Just might be on a crafting hiatus until after November 😉


Now, on to some mogs!  Draynee only has a few mogs in her collection.  It’s pretty much the reason I started the blog.  I was coming up with some great looks, but only wanted to really wear a couple.  She went wild and wore the Golden Valorous mog for a few months, but she’s back to purple judgement now as inspiration to get this cosplay done!



The cloak in the header picture is Silky Velvet Cloak

This mog is probably the second one I put together.  I’ve heard it referred to as an Alliance soldier mog, but the tabard is just there because I liked how the colors go together, and it covers up the corset.  I use it sometimes for a tanking set, when I get the wild urge to actually tank, lol!
I originally put this last mog together for my death knight, but it was just too bright for her, it didn’t feel right.  It works much better as a holy pally mog!  It’s a pretty popular look, but I still love it 🙂
Whew, well that was a long post, I hope you’ve enjoyed this look at my favorite paladin, Draynee!

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 😀

Super Fly for a Pink-Wearing Guy

Liouxpold and Draynee

I’ve always thought JD over at Amateur Azerothian is a pretty fly guy.  He is the mastermind behind the Transmogolympics and Mog Madness.  He is also a bit of a crazy person, which is just the kind of person I like 😀  However, this month JD has stepped-up the fly factor in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  All month long, his hunter Liouxpold (seen above) will be sporting this super fly pink transmog!

Several other bloggers have answered the call, and are showing their support via transmogs as well.

The members of Pretty Fly for a Draenei believe anytime is a good time for pink, so here are a few of my pink mogs!

Red and Purple Hunter Mog

This transmog was inspired by a worgen hunter I saw standing around Stormwind.  You really couldn’t miss him, as this look is pretty bright.  It is definitely a stand out!

The Skettis Kaliri from Terokkar
Forest is a nice pet for this look.

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

Draynee’s Still Fly

Ah, the year 2000.  Long before the World of Warcraft there was some pretty good rap music.  Still Fly by Big Tymers was one of my favorites to blast driving around in my big green van.  Yeah, I drove one of those in high school… It had a TV in the turtle top and rope lights in the back!  Luckily Draynee is way cooler than I was and totally rocks this Judgement recolor outfit.

My first WoW experience with the plate bustier was the Murkblood Avenger’s Chestplate.  I was leveling my first solo character, a blood elf DK and was pretty enamored by that goofy chestpiece, and the matching pants, Murkblood Avenger’s Legplates.  Both pieces come from quests in Nagrand. Since this was long before transmog (2009), I ended up selling those pieces and moving onto full-coverage Wrath gear.  When I leveled Draynee through Nagrand, I held onto that skimpy gear just for the nostalgia of it all.  As soon as transmog was announced, I knew what she’d be wearing!  Unfortunately, no shoulder pieces look right on Draenei’s alone, so I threw a tabard over my beloved bustier (or corset as you may).  Luckily, my guild is purely for the advancement of Draenei flyness, so the guild tabard matches the outfit.
If you, too, regtretably vendored you Murkblood pieces, the chest and legs are the same model as the Revenant Plate set, which are BOE greens.  The other pieces in the outfit are part of the Tier 2 purple recolor, found in various Burning Crusade dungeons.

Head – none
Shoulders – Justice Bearer’s Pauldrons
Chest – Murkblood Avenger’s Chestplate or Revenant Chestplate
Hands – Life Bearer’s Gauntlets
Waist – Girdle of Many Blessings
Legs – Murkblood Avenger’s Legplates or Revenant Leggings
Feet – Boots of the Watchful Heart
Tabard – Illustrious Guild Tabard
Mace – Revitalizing Hammer
Sheild – Lord’s Crest

I would love to have this for my ret set using the 2-handed sword Despair out of Karazhan, but drops have not been kind, either in Kara or appropriate level weapons, and I am stuck with a mace atm.
