It’s been a long time since I’ve done a transmog post (that doesn’t involve a blog challenge), and with it being #MonkWeek, it’s perfect timing, so I thought I’d update you all with my latest Monk mog. I went with a twist on the Nightstalker set and even though I haven’t got the weapon drop that I want off Malygos yet, I LOVE IT!
Shoulders – Mantle of the Unforgiven
Chest: Chestguard of No Remorse
Hands: Gloves of the Unbound
Waist: Crystallized Girdle
Legs: Leggings of the Unrepentant
Feet: Polar Boots
Weapons: Wrathful Gladiator’s Slicer
This was quite a time consuming mog to grind for – I relied on drops from HC instances which you can only run once a day. The weapons are easy as they’re justice-based, plus the boots which can be made by a leather worker. I also have a couple of head pieces to put on, but I’m not convinced I want them yet. Still… let me know what you think!
I’ve got some more swords (Phantom Blade) for this mog, which I think I prefer!
This post concludes #MonkWeek, but for more transmog posts for all our toons, remember to check out the links on the right hand side of the page!
I wanted something different for my new DK so I went for an Iron Man look. Hope you like it!

Following on from our epic couple of weeks levelling, where I pretty much had my transmog already planned for my panda, here is our little duo rocking their new clothes:
Up close and personal with Mr B:
Recently, I bought some – I thought – extortionately expensive transmogrification shoulders off the auction house: Bonechewer Shoulderguards for just over 800g. I then looked the next day to find that this price had shot up to 5000g and was faced with the ultimate dilemma:
Do I keep the amazing shoulders and use them as intended, or should I sell them and make a potential 600% profit?
Don’t get me wrong… I want these shoulders… they look amazing with my new transmog, of which they were the last piece I needed:
They are also uber rare, with a 0.3% drop chance. This explains the mad price.
So, do I sell them or do I keep them? I asked Twitter.
The responses were really interesting. Out of the people that responded, most said to sell them on, make the money, then buy again later when the price was lower. Only a couple of people said to use them, with a couple more saying it depended on how much I love them.
Personally, I’m not a gold maker. I try really hard to make money in a casual context: i.e., flipping items when I see the opportunity, ensuring I sell everything I can and using my professions if I have the opportunity. However, I don’t have knowledge of the markets and I tend to save and not invest. Perhaps not an aspiring stock broker…
The result? I kept them. I’m not really interested in making money and I’m much more interested in looking beautiful. I am glad I didn’t spend 5000g on them though, a proper bargain!
The question remains: would you sell them on or keep them? How much is too much for a piece of transmogrification gear?
I LOVE MY PRIEST!
I’ve really enjoyed getting an outfit fit for my priest’s shadow spec. I went for the Absolution set, with a few tweaks:
Head: Hood of Absolution
Shoulders: Mantle of Absolution
Chest: Vestments of Absolution
Hands: Rittsyn’s Ruinblasters (I know these are a bold choice, but I think the light blue really lifts the set)
Waist: Dreadful Gladiator’s Cord of Cruelty
Feet: Blue Suede Shoes
Off-hand: Nolkai’s Lantern (I’m so glad I found this, I use it for my Holy spec mog too!)
N.B: I haven’t changed the main hand as it’s a dagger and I’m after the 2H staff 🙂
Ironbound Proto-Drake suits this mog well
Jojo from Admiring Azeroth recently started a ‘mog contest to see who could come up with a set that looks like a companion pet in aid of her birthday celebrations.
I wanted to share my own entry, it’s rather silly, but perfect as I love (and got married at!) Christmas.
As you can see, I chose the Winter Reindeer! Feeling festive yet?!
Head: Doomed Crown of Lei Shen
Shoulders: Tusked Shoulderpads
Back: Sergeant’s Cape
Chest: Expedition Tunic
Shirt: Dark Silk Shirt
Hands: Ghostwalker Gloves
Waist: Belt of Fierce Competition
Legs: Insignia Leggings
Feet: Ghostwalker Boots
Off-hand: Nolkai’s Lantern
Please bear in mind that we weren’t bound by specific armour types etc, we could use what we wanted to create the look. I think it was a fabulous idea and I had a lot of fun – I’d encourage you all to try!
Happy Birthday again, Jojo!
No, a Death Knight in disguise… ssh!
Mr B here, this is my DK transmog.
Head: Amani Mask of Death
Shoulders: Pauldrons of Gruesome Fate
Chest: Chestguard of the Stoic Guardian
Hands: Furious Deathgrips
Waist: Stormforged Belt
Legs: Unwavering Legguards
Feet: Sabatons of the Righteous Defender
Weapon: Troll Butcherer
I’m still not sure I like this set, not sure why! Most of it is from the vendor in Shattrath and I put a lot of effort in to grind the justice during Cata. The belt was a find from the AH, and the weapon was a drop from Trollgore in Drak’Tharon Keep.
Let me know what you think…
I’ve been a bit hooked on transmog recently, so I thought I’d share with you a set I’d been ‘um-ing and ah’ing’ over for months.
Now, I don’t really like grinding for Tier sets, as I really get sick of running the same instances, but the Tirisfal set is a good one which I acquired over a period of a few months.
This is the finished product… for now.
Head: Cowl of Tirisfal
Shoulders: Mantle of Tirisfal
Back: Chieftain’s Cloak
Chest: Robes of Tirisfal
Hands: Imperial Red Gloves
Waist: Aerie Belt
Feet: Deathsilk Boots
I had some trouble finding a cloak that matched, but I’m really pleased with the final product. I find it really hard to find sets where you can appreciate them in all their glory on Gnomes – they are short and stubby and you can’t see a lot of detail. However, with the glow of the light from the weapon and the nice red colour, I think this is a lovely set!
I thought I’d introduce you to my new Hunter transmog.
I really wanted something natural, but with no skulls. Girly, but not wearing a dress. This is what I put together and I really love it:
Shoulders: Beast-Tamer’s Shoulders
Chest: Gronnstalker’s Chestguard
Hands: Tsunami Gloves
Waist: Runed Copper Belt
Legs: Gronnstalker’s Leggings
Feet: Gronnstalker’s Boots
Weapon: Drakkari Hunting Bow
I think one of the best pets for this set, that I have, is the Amber coloured Direhorn from Isle of Giants:
So, do you like? 🙂
