    Kite Master Ni's Helm

    Is there any known item with the same model as Kite Master Ni's helm? I'd have to say it might be the coolest looking helm in the game, and I'd like to transmog it if possible. I play a Troll Monk, so the Replica Shado-Pan helms look pretty bad on my character.. but I feel this one may be much better. Searched and couldn't find anything so was hoping maybe someone knows if the item is even in the game.



    Gracias!

    Don't think it's available to players unfortunately. It's just ike that one wavy sword you see the mogu and shado pan use. Blizzard gives the npcs all the cool gear.

    It is indeed a very cool helm. Can't see it being given to us though.

    Would have been something nice from the Shado-Pan Assault faction next patch, to follow on from the Shado-Pan having given us a helm.

    I figured as much. Hopefully some time in the future. I can't imagine they would include such an awesome graphic and make it unattainable forever.. thanks guys!

    It's not like 5.2 is out already. They could still conciveably add it at exalted like the regular Shado-pan one. I really hope they do.

    Unless people ask for it, I don't think it's going to happen.

    Sadly, the "unused" items usually remain... well, unused, or are relegated to trash mobs.

    Which seems a shame to me. Blizzard has tons of unused artwork models or armor skins just lying around in the game files... it'd be nice for them to stick them into raids and dungeons now and again so all items aren't just reskins of the same basic artwork in each tier.

    Case in point, there's a kick ass 2H ulduar lightning sword that never got used (but the model was used for the trash before Garalon, strangely enough.) It would make perfect sense for a sword of that persuasion to drop from Throne of Thunder, and it would certainly look different from all the other ones.

    I've tweeted an item developer who works at Blizzard and asked if we'll ever see the unused Shado-Pan armor (belts, shoulders, armor and this helm), as well as the Wandering Isle Weapons/Armor on a vendor at some point, for the use of Transmog.

    He said it was certainly a possibility and didn't immediately dismiss it or give reason to say no.

    Well, there's no reason for him to say "no," as he can't definitively say "no, we'll never, ever, ever use that." Old items to indeed turn up now again... there's a green that drops from WotLK enemies that uses a model/skin previously exclusive to the Dragons of Nightmare world bosses (and is therefore now a unique skin.)

    I just think it'd be great if Blizzard more conscientiously looked through their old unused/obscure gear and weapon models and used them a bit more liberally in raids, dungeons, quests, etc.
