A collection of Transmogrification Template Kits actually worn in-game by my Tauren Mistweaver/Windwalker Monk. I will update it whenever I change my in-game TTK. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).
Touch of Blue
Phantasmal Headdress, Ranger Pauldrons, Grizzly Jerkin, Brown Belt of Humbling Gravity, Earthborn Kilt, Hewn Kodo Gloves + Uninsured Bracers
The most recent time BTH and I ran a dungeon with our Monks, I was appalled at the state in which I’d left Kate’s Mistweaver set after our previous dungeon session. She needed something better, asap!
The Grizzly Jerkin + kilt (most often Earthborn, but sometimes Jinxed Hoodoo or Kurenai) combination seems to be quite popular for female monks. I’ve seen outfits using these two items as core with varied accessories at a few different Transmogrification sites. Here’s my take on it.
Silentleaf hat shoulders & chestpiece, Serene Yellow Belt, Yeti Hide Britches, Craggy Handgrips, Luring Footpads, Spear of Xuen
The Silentleaf items are obtained by questing in Kun-Lai Summit.
These shoulders have a similar look to the iconic Rogue T5 Deathmantle Shoulderpads, without being quite so menacing.
The bottom half of this ensemble is identical to Kate’s earlier “Serene Grizzly” Transmogrification kit.
Grace of the Plainshawk
Plainshawk set with Red Belt of Gentle Persuasion, Ogre-Hunter Boots, and Spear of Xuen
This recolor of the crafted Misthide set is readily obtained by questing through Valley of the Four Winds.
Headband of the Coiled Serpent/Adventurer’s Bandana, Bonechewer Shoulderguards, Wolf Rider’s Padded Armor, Red Belt of Gentle Persuasion, Mystic Sarong, Blacksting Gloves
Other leather-wearing classes will probably want to use the Burning Blade Devotee’s Cinch.
Although Wowhead no longer lists the Mystic Sarong as being part of his inventory, I indeed obtained this Mystic Sarong post-Patch 5.0 by camping the Dark Iron Entrepreneur in Arathi Highlands.
Icy Calm (Windwalker)
Spaulders of the Ring, Lo’ap’s Tunic of Muck Diving, Serene Yellow Belt, Clefthoof Britches, Smuggler’s Mitts/Caustic Feelers, Mud Encrusted Boots, Aspirant’s Staff of Harmony
This is mostly an Outland quest rewards recipe set, but it’s one I’ve always liked a lot. I owe the inspired combination of Serene Yellow Belt + Clefthoof Britches to Draynee’s Jade Monk set.
Misty Moss (Mistweaver)
Righteous shoulders (gray)/Wild Shoulderpads (green), Imperial Leather chestpiece, Green Belt of Hushed Wisdom, Nature-Stitched Kilt, Righteous (gray)/Ranger (brown & green) gloves, Aspirant’s Staff of Harmony
I’d been looking forward to getting to Hellfire Peninsula with Kate so that she could acquire this lovely kilt. I like how nicely the Imperial Leather chestpiece complements the kilt. The Righteous gloves worked well, but the Righteous shoulders… not so much. I’m happier with the overall look using the green-toned shoulders and gloves.
The Imperial Leather Belt might be a good choice for other leather wearers.
Hidden Serpent (Windwalker)
Reporter’s Shoulderguards, Spore-Covered Tunic, Green Belt of Hushed Wisdom, Blazerunner Leggings, Craggy Handgrips, Colossal Treads
If you’re not an Herbalist, the Gypsy Tunic, a green version of this chestpiece style, also works very well, though the overall effect is brighter. For other leather wearers, I recommend the Excavator’s Quarry Belt.
Warchief’s Wiseman (Mistweaver)
Puncture-Binding Spaulder, Prospector’s Chestpiece, Serene Yellow Belt, Warchief Kilt*, Fuzzy Gloves + Princess Poobah’s Bracelets, Aspirant’s Staff of Harmony
The Warchief Kilt dropped in old Scarlet Monastery. I’ve had this one in the bank for several months now, while I was trying to decide which character to bind it to. The Flamestrider Robes from BRD are a full-length version of this style that would make a very similar outfit with the same accessories.
For other leather wearers, I recommend the Prospector’s belt. For races who wear shoes, the Prospector’s boots or any other dark brown-black boots would be appropriate.
Serene Grizzly (Windwalker)
Defiant Spire Shoulderguard, Grizzly Jerkin, Serene Yellow Belt, Yeti Hide Britches, Craggy Handgrips, Luring Footpads, Aspirant’s Staff of Harmony
For other leather wearers, I recommend the Hillman’s or Batskin belt.
Basic Brown Leather
Robust Shoulders, Kranal’s Vest, Serene Yellow Belt, Duskwatcher’s Leggings, Hewn Kodo Gloves + Uninsured Bracers, Stolen Talrendis Boots, Aspirant’s Staff of Harmony/Staff of the Hidden Master
I made this Transmogrification kit for Katewatha before I had enough gear to make a separate set for each spec. Most of the items are starter and secondary zone quest rewards with several equivalents.
For other leather wearers, I recommend the Superior or Hyena Hide belts.
