    Monk trasmogging like Chen

    After seeing the wonderful cinematic I thought if was currently possible to mog like Chen in game. I know they added the straw hat in the last build, I just hope we will be able to get his gear in leather at least, since that's what monks wear.

    Well, the gear is already there. It is pretty much what Monks start in, just lacks a bit of white trimming ^_^
    I would assume that a higher level set would appear at some point, though, I'm not holding my breath sadly

  3. #3
    Well, actually the starting gear is sleeveless.


  4. #4
    Oh, so I have been proven wrong. Well, looks like we can only hope to get a leather set of it ^_^

    The sad thing is, if they ever gave us a set like that or made a tier with that look, people would just complain about 'lazy design' and 'recycled content/art'.

    I'd kill someone for that look. Whether it's for my future Monk or my Rogue.

    I am hoping for some old school kung-fu chinese ming dynasty type sets myself something you would some times see in paintings or statues from old china.

    I don't think people would complain about re-used content, I think it would be a rather large complain for people who want a Plate / Cloth / Mail version (Like the Shadow Pan Helm)

    I would kill for a transmog set like the one Chen has + his straw hat.
    No seriously .. who do I have to kill?
    Khan, Battlemaster, Gladiator, High Warlord

    Have you ever been to this forums? Wow players complain about literally everything.. There will always be some hater who will write an angry topic about anything and some people will back him up stating they speak on behalf of the whole community...

    But ye - I really count on some lv 85-90 quest rewards, or maybe some faction items that will give us similar look.. I don't count on tier looking like that (tiers usually look more 'stunning' than this plain set), this is something a green quest rewards usually look like.

    Tillers just became my first repgrind :P

    but as it has no stats.... does that mean you can't mog it? Or are the rules changing in MoP?
    Reading A Song of Ice and Fire is like playing with an adorable puppy, then someone comes up out of nowhere, shoots the puppy and punches you in the face.

    Stands in front of 100 enemies with 10% health left "Myeh, I'll save my potions for when I REALLY need them." - every rpg player ever.

    I just checked and it seems you really get the hat from one of the tiller farmers (each one has his own "reputation bar"). In this case Old Hillpaw (http://mop.wowhead.com/faction=1276#comments).

    Stats are not neccessarily required (see Darkmoon Replica Armor), however common quality items are currently not transmogable, I really hope this is an exception.

    I think it will be an exception. They made it obviously for epic-xmog-swaggyness =3

    If not we'll go to the official forums with pitchforks in our hands and dreams of Straw Hats in our minds <3

    omg 2 more. Listen carefully Armor is a stat.

    Currently you won't be able to moogle the straw hat cause it's common. Hopefully blizz changes it.
    I'm the minister of mistakes. I'm the shaman of sh*tstorms. If there was a f**k-up pope. I'd have a 3 foot hat!

    When arguing online I like to use big words. Because by the time they're done googling it, they have forgotten what their point was.

    After receiving the hat from Old Hillpaw, it becomes available on the Tillers vendor in all 4 armor types (still common quality, if I remember right). They're all exactly the same. There's no reason to do that other than setting it up for transmog use.

    Hm, maybe they could make it as replicas? Like the dk starting gear or something.
    Or how they brought back some old sets as replica. Maybe they will make this is in green/blue/purple in future, who knows.

    What about this, for the chest at least ? http://mop.wowhead.com/transmog-set=...delviewer:24+0
    For the belt, one of the monk class quests (or vendor) but they're not correctly displayed in WH.

    The other issue with "Chen-mogging" is that Chen doesn't wear shoulders. I'm still not sure what I plan to transmog my shoulders to (I'll be wearing heirlooms), so I'll probably just go default until I find something that looks good.

    I'm not sure Wowhead has the coloration correct on the straw hat. When it was initially posted here on MMOC, it's color was gold, like an heirloom. It seems pretty obvious that the hat is intended specifically for transmog, so it's highly unlikely that it wouldn't be usable or transferable. So far, it's still a big question, because no one's seen it in-game yet, only from datamining.
