In anticipation of all the new Draenei lore coming our way in Warlords of Draenor, Samaramon is holding a transmogrification contest to create an outfit using the Tabard of the Hand. This unique tabard is awarded only to Draenei characters at the completion of the Bloodmyst Isle storyline, when they are acclaimed as revered heroes of the Hand of Argus. In my usual manner, I’ve put together a kit for each armor type.
Hand of Destiny
Feline Mantle, Robe of the Dragon Slayer, Cincture of Woven Reeds, Scholar’s Gloves, Staff of the Royal Wizard
This outfit contains only items that a Draenei Mage could reasonably expect to be able to obtain by about the same time that she completes the Bloodmyst Isle storyline and receives the Tabard of the Hand, thus allowing her to make a complete, reasonably well-coordinated outfit to wear with her new tabard almost immediately.
Hand of Grace
Yalia’s Cowl, Spiritmend Shoulders, Royal Gown, Cannonfire Cord, Soulcloth Gloves, Apostle of Argus
I chose these shoulders because they match the soft, greyish colours of the tabard so nicely. To wear this kit without the tabard, try the Arcane Pads or Arachnidian Pauldrons.
The belt shown here can only be obtained by Priests. Good options for Mages include Bridenbrad’s Sash, the Primal Mooncloth Belt, or the Azure Silk Belt.
Hand of Dedication
Flamefly Spaulders, Queen Conch Chestguard, Red Belt of Unspoken Warning, Nice Shorts, Conch-Inlaid Gauntlets, Inscribed Leather Boots, Cranedancer’s Staff
This outfit could also be worn “barefoot” by using the Mosshide Boots.
Hand of Pursuit
Rift Stalker Mantle, Formidable chestguard & leggings, Giantstalker’s Belt, Sundered gloves & boots, Arugoo’s Crossbow of Destruction
To convert this outfit for a Shaman, use the Cyclone (T4) shoulders, the Jazeraint belt, and the Spell Axe/Battleaxe of the Farseer.
Hand of Justice
Golem Helmet, Shoulderguards of the Bold, Chestplate of the Great Aspects, Greatbelt of Living Waters (LFR), Legplates of the Bold, Templar Gauntlets, Replica Boots of Heroism, Fist of Argus, Azure-Shield of Coldarra
The T16 LFR belt shown above can only be obtained by Paladins who have chosen Holy for their loot spec. Warriors will want to use the Lurker’s Girdle for this outfit.
The excitement of my friends whose favorite race is the Draenei is rather contagious. I have caught myself contemplating the notion that perhaps I should not use my complementary boost to 90 on either the Warlock or the Rogue, but rather should give it to my Draenei Mage.
