Looking for Transmog? (Leather Edition)

Flashyou Rate My Mog (Transmogs) Leave a Comment

My last transmog post gave the clothies an opportunity to shine in a unique and easily obtainable mog (check it out here). This post will focus on a mog that received a lot of positive comments in the WoW community. For those who are familiar with the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, some players like to refer to it as a “Groot” mog. This transmog requires you to do a lot of PvP for Honor Points so if you do not like to PvP, this mog might be hassle for you (but not impossible). I suggest doing some BGs with a few friends so you can coordinate yourselves to win! This mog also requires some grinding for the chest piece but you might be lucky and you might get it for cheap on AH.

Alright, here are the pieces you need:

Helm: Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Kodohide Helm (1100 Honor Points sold by Captain Dirgehammer for the Alliance and Sergeant Thunderhorn for the Horde)

This is the piece that is rather essential to give that “Groot” look. This is honestly one of the best helm designs in the game not because of necessarily how it looks but how it fits. It doesn’t make your head look obnoxiously large. Most importantly, it doesn’t make your hair randomly disappear so you can have a lovely ponytail or braid to go with it. I wouldn’t suggest hair styles with bangs or the long hair because the hair comes out of the helmet and I personally think it doesn’t look quite good. If you are a Night Elf, some of the markings will show (see picture) and it gives it a unique look. For a better look, I would go with a green hair color or a blonde. Mine is white because I personally love the white hair but if you want to look perfect, those are my suggestions to you!

Shoulders: Tyrannical Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders (1750 Honor Points sold by Captain Dirgehammer for Alliance and Sergeant Thunderhorn for Horde)

The shoulders have an amazing design and texture and have the colors you need to match the rest of the set. What makes them particularly unique is their large size and bulky look. Some people didn’t quite like the shoulders because the gap between the shoulder and neck is too large but I don’t think it’s that bad. I like big shoulders so that might be why I don’t mind 🙂 I also like how they are also made of wood like the head piece, staff and belt.

Chest: You have two options here, we have Phaelia’s Vestments of the Sprouting Seed (which can be bought on AH or drop in Ulduar 25 man only from either Stormcaller BrundirSteelbreaker or Runemaster Molgeim) or Eternal Blossom Raiment (LFR chest piece which drops from Grand Empress Shek’zeer in Heart of Fear raid).

Overall, I think Phaelia’s Vestments (left picture) works better because of the colors and patterns. The yellow is the exact same as the yellow’s found in the shoulders, helm, belt and staff. However, if you are fortunate enough to have the raiment (right picture), I like the designs that it gives on your arms and the blue gives it some colors. Again, it all comes to personal preference!

Gloves: I have added two choices here as well. If you were fortunate enough to complete the challenge modes last expansion, I recommend Gloves of the Cycle (left picture)which match nicely with Phaelia’s Vestments. If not, it’s no big deal, any gloves that are a light brown should suffice. On the left picture here I am using Thick Draenic Gloves (right picture) and a leatherworker with a 300+ skill can create for you if there aren’t any on the AH. The gloves require Knothide Leather x6 and Rune Thread x2.

Belt: Tyrannical Gladiator’s Belt of Cruelty (1750 Honor Points and sold by Armsmaster Holinka in Valley of the Four Winds).

Beautiful belt! This belt screams druid mog in so many ways. It is a moose head! Who doesn’t like antlers coming out of their belt? I think this belt looks wonderful with the mog because it has the same wood texture as the shoulders (it is also part of the same set) and the light brown matches perfectly with the robes and gloves. This piece reminds me of the good ol’ antler look that druids use to have. Think of Stormrage Antlers!


Staff: I use the Vinewrapped Staff which is a WoD BoE staff. There are different color schemes for this staff such as blue or a cherry blossom pink. Not only does the yellow leaves and tree look match perfectly with the set, the Enchanter’s Illusion – Landslide makes it glow a bright yellow with I suppose “brown rocks” coming out of it (hence Landslide). One of my favorite enchant illusions by far. This staff can be purchased off the AH or you might be lucky and get it in your Salvage Yard if you have one in your Garrison! The only issue I have with the staff is that the actual staff part has a little hint of purple. It isn’t quite all black but luckily your staff is hidden behind your back the focus of your staff is the top part of it!


That is it and you are ready to show off your new mog! You need a total of 4,600 Honor Points which is not too bad of a grind especially if you are winning BGs and a little bit of luck to find the pieces like the chest and staff on AH but they aren’t that uncommon at all! I created this mog using the addon MogIt – You can download it here http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/mogit
