A generally non-Transmogrification-friendly collection of outfits worn by characters who have accumulated /played far beyond what would be normally expected for their level due to spending most of their time running between the mailbox, the Bank, and the Auction House. I will update it sporadically as I create new Banking outfits. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).
Basic Banking Black & White
Tuxedo Shirt & Pants with and without Tuxedo Jacket, Haliscan Jacket & Pants, Dress Shoes
White Woolen Dress, Simple Black Dress, or Lovely Black Dress (plus Tuxedo Shirt & Pants) with Dress Shoes or Knitted Sandals
Gilnean Acolyte’s Robe with Dress Shoes, Black Festival Suit with Knitted Sandals
A showcase of suitable attire for the level 1 bank alt. If you are willing to do enough questing to reach level 5 and to run around enough to visit each of your faction’s capitals and the towns in the corresponding starting zones during the Lunar Festival, you can easily acquire the very elegant Black Festival Suit.
A level 1 bank alt will not actually be able to have the Top Hat; a Top Hat-wearing bank alt will probably be about level 13 at the minimum because that’s how long it takes to get out of the phased Worgen starting zone. Although she was ultimately intended to be a Gnome all along, Karrieanna began her existence as a Worgen specifically so that I could later do this.
Formal Black and White (High Level)
Battered Jungle Hat, Duskhallow Mantle, Shadow Council tunic & trousers, Silver-Thread Sash, Antique Silver Cufflinks, Bandit Boots, Warmonger’s Cloak, Black Ice, The 1 Ring, Diamond-Tipped Cane
Even without the Black Ice ring, this outfit requires a quite high-level character. Although most of this outfit is cloth, the boots are leather.
The Black Mageweave Vest + Formal White Shirt would be a nice variation in place of the Shadow Council tunic.
Shimmering armor & trousers, Darkmoon “Sword”
A kit for a level 20+ banker who can wield 2H weapons. Characters of races that wear shoes will want to acquire the matching Shimmering boots. The Shimmering belt would also be a nice addition to this outfit.
Tarnished Crown, Willow Vest, Imbued Disciple’s Sash, Councillor’s Pants, Heavy Weave Gloves, Ikeyen’s Boots, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Farmer’s Broom
This non-Transmogrification-friendly outfit for a level 60+ banker is a hybrid of the outfits worn by the Darkmoon Carnies and the Darkmoon Fire Breathers.
Haliscan Brimmed Hat/Forever-Lovely Rose/Red Defias Mask, Haliscan Jacket & Pantaloons, Bard’s gloves & boots, Warmonger’s Cloak, Tuxedo Shirt, Dazzling Mithril Rapier
Even though the brick red of the cummerbund and the maroon of the boots & gloves don’t match exactly, I am absurdly fond of this combination.
Thunder Bluff Banker
Bloodwoven chest belt pants & bracers, Khadgar’s Knapsack
For a short time, the Bloodwoven chestpiece appeared as an elongated tunic, like the Journeyman’s Vest, and I was very distressed because I no longer looked exactly like the Thunder Bluff bankers in this outfit.
Thunder Bluff Auctioneer
Resilient tunic belt pants gloves & boots, Talhide Helmet, Chieftain’s Shoulders, Amber Cape, Ramkahen Ceremonial Hammer
I’d been wearing the base set for a few days when I was browsing the AH and was struck by how nicely this hat matched. With a hat, I needed some shoulders, too.
This weapon not only coordinates well with the set, but also amuses me because it matches the one given as a pestle for grinding corn for the Corn Mash cooking daily in Thunder Bluff.
Thunder Bluff Honor Guard
Wanderer’s Shoulders, Grunt’s Plate Armor, Feral/Trickster’s belt, Wolf Rider’s Leggings, Barbaric Iron Boots, Grinning Axe
An outfit for a high level (minimum 55), plate-wearing Tauren bank alt.
There is a Transmogrifiable version of the chestpiece available, the Plate of the Shaman King, but because the ensemble uses mixed gear types and is thus non-Transmogrification-friendly anyway, I have chosen to use the much more easily obtained Grunt’s Plate Armor. The Wolf Rider’s belt exactly matches the NPC belt, but I used what was most readily available at the time.
Chief Officer of Finance
Durable jacket, Tuxedo Pants, Dress Shoes, Tuxedo Shirt, Antique Silver Cufflinks, Spring Gadget
The other zeppelin captains and chief officers are wearing the dusty green Conjurer’s Vest and the dark blue Sorcerer Drape. Kermione has all the colors of this chestpiece in her inventory, though she can’t wear them all just yet.
Seer’s Padded Armor, Godfrey’s Britches, Reconnaissance Boots*, Farmer’s Broom
Kymberlea leaves her kids with “Nana Morene”, her mother’s best friend, when she goes out questing.
