Earthy Pandaren Monk by Zuiyu for Eluvia’s Autumn Collection

I have the pleasure of showing off another one of my friend’s mogs today. Zuiyu is a Pandaren Monk, who has chosen to emulate the image of a hardworking Pandaren (who is also a badass Monk) rather than a Shadopan.

Here he is showing off those moves I was mentioning earlier. (credit to Zuiyu himself for this screenshot).

The earthy tones give the character a really grounded feel, the straw hat is a possible nod to a hardworking past or present of the character, but the gemlike stones on the bracers and golden belt buckle hint at glory beneath the humble exterior.

A serene location for the “Photo shoot”. A place where this character would feel at home.

I wanted to show off the shoulder pad detail. I like to imagine that those claws might be removable to be thrown like knives. (yes yes, we all know he is not a rogue, but that would be sweet right?)

Here is the list of items used:

Head: Straw Hat  (This also exists in the cloth, mail and plate armour classes)

Shoulder: Mantle of Gnarled Overgrowth

Back: Farstrider Defender’s Cloak

Chest: Korloff’s Raiment

Wrist: Bracers of Simmering Fury

Hands: Troublesome Gloves

Belt: Green Belt of Hushed Wisdom (Monk only)

Legs: Leggings of the Empty Throne

Feet: Haal’eshi Boots

Weapon: Sword of the Falling Sky

There are many other weapons that you might want to combine with this look, but I decided to just list the ones that Zuiyu is currently using, and see what some of you out there come up with. I like the simplicity of this sword and so will not add a list of more elaborate looking ones.

Thanks to Zuiyu for showing off this transmog outfit!  I would love to see more Monk transmog ideas. Post some comments if you have something to share. Thanks for coming by Mogs by Murph3tte.

The howling Beast

Achievement unlocked!  I have finally finished the Challenge Mode runs on my hunter, and unlocked the transmog set for her called – Howling Beast set.  It took a while in some good and a lot more painful PuG’s in order to get this achievement set together, but I could not be happier to have finally done it!

As you can see I am not showing off the helm of the set here, as in my opinion it is rather scary looking.  You can see it, and the rest of the pieces here as well.

I  have chosen the Massive Recurved Bow to match this set, as I think it works perfectly.

Other bows which I think also can match nicely are (there are others too but here is a small selection):

Golden Bow of Quel’Thalas

Ravenheart Longbow

Zod’s Repeating Longbow

Arrowsong

even the season 15 pvp bow would work: Prideful Gladiator’s Longbow

For those of you who prefer guns, this one is rather perfect: Big Game Hunter

As you can see above I am currently running with a Pandaria tiger as a pet as it’s orange coat matches the set nicely.  I also think that the boar from Razorfen Kraul is a good match for this set. Meet Truffle my newly aquired spirit style boar that will soon no longer be available in game. For hunters out there who are interested, go grab him now before WoD releases!

WoWScrnShot_092614_165307I would like to end with a pic of a friend and I dancing gleefully at having our new sets. She is wearing the beautiful Paladin set also obtained from achieving a Gold rating in all challenge mode dungeons.
