The Best Transmogs For The Average Adventurer Part 1

World of Warcraft is filled with oversized spiked shoulderpads, glowing eyes and weapons bigger than a 1000 lb Taruen.

While that’s all fine, some players prefer a more low-fantasy and functional look.

We have picked some of our favorite transmog items for the average adventurer and paired them with full transmog sets.

The Dwarven Miner

Dwarves aren’t fancy folk, they are men of the earth and this should be reflected in their transmog.

The Dwarven miner has spent his life beneath the surface of the earth, but as the valuable minerals dried up he chose to join the surface dwellers in the search for riches through adventure.

Armed with a only pickaxe and a shovel he will fight the mightiest foes for the honor of Ironforge and of course to line his pockets with gold.

Key pieces of transmog here is the amazing belt, the shirt, helm and weapons.

The example below is a Warrior but versions can be adapted for other classes as well.

The Best Transmogs For The Average Adventurer Part 1 1
Head: Shellbreaker Warhelm
Shirt: Yellow Lumberjack Shirt (Profession)
Waist: Girdle of Bound Agony (Socrethar the Eternal Hellfire Citadel Raid Finder)
Legs: Blackrock Legplates (Vendor)
Feet: Cliffwalker Boots (Quest)
Hands: Honey-Glazed Gauntlets (World Drop)
Main Hand: Marcus’ Pickaxe (Quest)
Off Hand: Shovel of Mercy (Quest)

Mag’har Orc Bonehunter

Another one of Azeroths races who isn’t much in favor of fancy garbs are the Mag’har Orcs.

While the other races don silk cloth and gilded jewelry, the Mag’har opt for simpler options like bone and stone. As long as it gets the job done, right?

The Red Mage

The Red Mage is flashy and bright but still toned-down as far as a Mage Transmog goes.

No flashy effects or hovering orbs. Start with the hat and you’ll have plenty of options for the rest if you don’t like every part of the example below.

The Back Alley Cutthroat

Don’t be seen, and if you are don’t stick out. That’s the only way to enjoy a long career as a thief.

All the different shades of leather clash a bit on this Transmog, but that’s life. A Rogue’s mind is on making bank, not on matching their outfits.
