    Character Screen Armor

    First off, I'm ridiculously excited to get this armor eventually. It is the most monk-ish looking thing in the game by miles and miles, and it always made me sad that we couldn't transmog the simple little set we start in.

    My question is: has anyone been able to get it in beta? Does it have invisible pauldrons? The shoulders are bare in the character screen.

    Now we just need a belt that is basically the same, but has Chen's potions and tinctures.....

    Oh, and if only coolies didn't look ridiculous on female pandaren, heh heh.....

    I have been wondering the same thing...

    I wish we could get more monk gear that was simple looking. That is the way I see monk and really the way they present us... we should be using light gear not these hulking things they keep giving us. I love the feet on the WoD sets but I wish they would go all the way with it.

    This set having invisible shoulders would be a serious win for monks everywhere.

    The QQ would be both massive and understandable, though. People have been begging for a way to opt out of "pauldrons the size of Texas" for a long time now.

    The set does have invisible shoulderpads. However, they are flagged as "Cannot Transmogrify".

    What is the idea behind non transmoggable transmog gear o_O
    Where do those pieces come from, it's from the garrison building which also gives you grunt/footmen armor?

    They have a chance to be contained in the work order chests from the Salvage Yard small building.

    I see nothing that says they cannot be transmogged, maybe it was a bug and removed.

    Do you have a link for the set you're talking about? I'd love a more simple monk set.

    I'd also really like more gear that looks like monks in Diablo3.

    edit:

    Think I found it: http://wod.wowhead.com/items=4.2?fil...66;crs=6;crv=0

    It says it "resembles" the starter set. I don't see any xmod restrictions on the mistdancer set itself so I assume that it IS xmod-able, where the starter set is NOT.

    On the right, quick facts: "Cannot transmogrify"...

    That's a separate set. That gear is the new boosted character gear. We have to find the 100 version that comes from the salvage yard to know for sure.

    I'm gonna quote one of the people from that conversation:
    This has to be a joke.

    It's not a HUGE loss - just have to find some other shoulders that "match" to transmog with the set. Shame there's no "hide shoulders" option, but I guess they put a lot of the set "shape" into the shoulder slot, so it makes some sense.

    But I don't really see the point of a transmog set that can't be transmogged. I'd prefer if they just added a visible shoulder item to the set that "matches" so we don't have to go out and hunt one down.

    too bad theres no black boots that look good with this set. idky blizz has such a fetish for skin tight boots and leather socks.

    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.

    Some "technical limitations" bullshit is the excuse even though moggable invisible items already exist. Before that though, he says it would only look good on some sets meaning they just don't want to deal with chest pieces looking terrible without shoulders. It's shit.

    Totally agree. It is their go to answer when they just want to drop it. We have transmogable invisible belts and boots. There was also that invisible vest that Blizzard didn't allow us to transmog and their excuse at the time said nothing about technical limitations. Here is the quote.

    "There may be individual items that are excluded from being transmogrified on the basis that they were originally added to the game as absurdities. (examples: a weapon that looks like a fish, or a chest piece that is invisible)"

    I'll never understand their arbitrary transmog rules. Can't let you you guys look too silly in our cartoony video game with gnomes and Pandaren! Meanwhile they make tons of goofy looking NPCs or half naked warriors but don't allow us the same artistic freedoms.
