    What is the a good substitute for the shoulders because you can not transmogrify boa items.

  2. Aurora Nova says:

    Chapeau for this is, of course, [Whitemane’s Chapeau]

  3. eldarion42 says:

    For Level 70+ Characters there is a quest in Area 52, where zu have to kill an elite Mob. The reward consists of identically looking boots. ->

  4. Anonymous says:

    Matching gloves?

  5. Schrei says:

    Priest shoulders that match:
    Heroe’s Mantle of Faith
    Furious Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle

    Boots that are much easier to get:
    Infernoweave Boots

    Gloves for priests:
    Furious Gladiator’s Mooncloth Gloves

    And for belts, try:
    Agonal Sash
    Cincture of Polarity

    Has *anyone* had any luck in the vest pattern dropping? I’ve been farming the Fire Guards on and off for the past several days and have had no luck myself. Would hearten me to know if it is still obtainable.

    • Sephorae says:

      Did you ever get the drop? Still trying to determine if it’s still in the game myself.

      • Healana says:

        I can confirm the cloak and pants still drop, as I picked up 2 of them today while farming.

        I spent about an hour farming for the vest and glove patterns with no luck. I’m really hoping these still drop as they come from the same mob, but different mob than the cloak and legs.

        I’ll post back if I manage to pick one up! Best of luck to anyone else farming them. A heads up whether they still drop would be awesome too!

      • Jak says:

        I’ve successfully farmed the vest and gloves tonight (12/28/11) Keep trying! Check out where they drop and only farm what they tell you to and you should be fine.

  7. Yura says:

    I really love this set!! although when i transmorged it on my priest i mixed it up a little bit.

  8. Tantta says:

    and there is also blue/violet go hunt it! i don’t know yet what is chest called… but im sure you will figure it out :3 atleast its good to know that there is one!

  9. TJ says:

    Just want to point out the drop rate is .05%, not 7%, not 5%, .05%. If you try farming this recipe you will concur the above list 7% is an error.

    • Noelani says:

      I should add that those drop rates were accurate once, having been altered with the zone change to Searing Gorge, and it’s difficult for us to keep updated with every drop rate listed in our 900+ articles. Nevertheless, thanks for bringing it to our attention, I’ve updated accordingly.

  10. René says:

    It seems they have changed the vest, it no longer have bare arms .(


  11. Merlynne says:

    I put this set together for my mage but added the Veteran’s Silk Belt (because I had already done the belt quest and couldn’t get that one) that you purchase for JP on the Isle of Quel’danas, the head I added Circle of Flame, a drop in BRD (47 kills it took!), and then the back I added Obsidian Flecked Cape, that comes from a massively long quest chain in Burning Steppes (so worth it). There are lots of cloaks with that model though, it just so happened that was the easiest one for me to get. Here is the full outfit:

  12. TJ says:

    Male alternative, with robe and shoulders being different:

    Female alternative, top is tabard exclusively (Guild):

    both use this staff, there are a few same model choices but this was easiest since it is questable:

    The shoulders I used can be quested or found as a green on AH – there are some look alikes. Quested version obtained via netherstorm quest:

    (Edit Ironyca: Fixed your request)

    • Kaiserin says:

      Oh, those shoulders are uber sexy.. Thanks for posting! I’m building a set similar to this, only with a different top and such. Thanks again!

  13. Kitty says:

    I just gathered up a copy of this set for my Forsaken mage and I love it!

    I wasn’t able to get the Gloves of the High Magus since I already had that quest done. These are the best looking gloves if you can get them. Otherwise, the Cindercloth ones that go with the set are still a pretty good match.

    Helm: Circle of Flame
    (Whitemane’s Chapeau is a much easier to farm match for this set as well)

    Main Hand: Gutgore Ripper

    Off-hand: Skull of Burning Shadows from Stratholme

    Cloak: Dar’toon’s Cloak

    Another weapon suggestion: Perdition’s Blade (Both from Molten Core)

    Other suggestions for interesting off-hands:
    Rod of Molten Fire/Medicine Stick
    Umbral Crystal
    Boquet of Ebon Roses
    Hellfire Tome/Fire Eater’s Guide

  14. Fletcher says:

    Anyone have suggestions as to alternative trousers to use with this set? I like the feet and gloves and whatnot, and I want a nice non-robe option for my (female) worgen warlock, but I’m not a big fan of all that exposed thigh.

    • Rob says:

      might try the Devil-stiched leggings found in Area 52 in netherstorm, one of the 3 floating dungens there thats where i got mine

  15. Kirasai says:

    Worth mentioning that the wrists in the Alternative version are the Elegant Bracers! Took me forever to find the lil buggers!

  16. Phertia says:

    I just got this on my warlock and I really enjoy it. However, I would love to have a “foxy” pet to go with it. I don’t mean my demons (I use Succubus). Anyone has any ideas?

  17. Alshain says:

    A nice alternative, on my server for pretty cheap, are the cloth priest tier one bracers and belt. Of course, this doesn’t help Warlocks or Mages but, meh.

  18. Folthan says:

    Some small tips for everyone liking this set:

    1. The vest recipe is very hard to get by, best chance for you is to shout in trade from time to time that you look for a tailor who can make it and promise a big tip (I gave someone 250 gold).

    2. I wanted to have some more black in the set, and also preferred a fancy shirt with red sleeves. Also, if you cannot easily get the shoulders or cloak because of being low level or keep getting killed as a cloth user in pvp, try this.

    – Dar’toons Cloak
    – Thistlefur Mantle
    – Stylish Red Shirt

    Have fun!

  19. Paisii says:

    I found a replacement chest if you have not already done the quest in Nagrand.
    Watcher’s Tunic
    Here is what my set looks like:

  20. Daniele says:

    As there is no example of my favourite blue version of the cindercloth outfit i present you my little warlock girl of the EU Server Taerar^^

    Look her up if you like to know which gear i used to create this set or send me a note and i´ll write back to you^^

    • Noelani says:

      Looks fantastic! We actually had a person win a few thousand gold at our most recent WoW Factor event, using a variation of those items. It’s a really nice and quite unusual set.

      We have made pictures of the Frostweave Tunic/Wanderer’s combo set for the site, but it’s not been posted as an article yet – it’s buried deep in our long to-do list!

    • Danielle says:

      For those who are looking like me for a good pair of boots is the following link

      Lucky me that my warlock girl hasn’t started running around this area so i can still do this quest^^

      Good luck and happy hunting all who will start doing this quest!

  21. fai says:

    Alternate shoulders: nether guards, quest reward in netherstorm.

    also, alternate shoes: slippers of the high priestess, quest reward also from netherstorm,

  22. HeavenScent says:

    Seer’s Caneworks wonderfully with this look. Have to be revered with Scryers to get it. There are other staves with the same skin if you aren’t a Scryer, just click the tab “Same Model As” on Wowhead after you click the link above.

    Sun-Infused Focus Staff also looks very nice. Blood Elves in their starting zone get a similar looking staff from the The Traitor’s Destruction quest chain.

    Tough to find nice looking staves to go with this set! My mage wears this set well, it looks fantastic on her.
