The weapon on the left picture looks much better with that set imo
I wanted to use the Replica Shado-Pan Helmet in keeping with the spirit of the expansion, and I've finally found a mog I love. I haven't changed since I finished it. Thought I'd share.
I decided to base my mog around the Mountainscaler Battleplate set (purchasable in Townlong Steppes), since it has that samurai-ish style; the matching shoulders for this set, however, are too large and make you look top-heavy and goofy, so I fired up WMV and eventually found a subdued shoulder replacement that picks up the grayish-pale green and ridges of the armor. They're a reward from a post-Cataclysm quest in Tanaris that I had luckily never done.
I matched it with the Indefatigable Greatcloak, purchasable for JP. It forms a neat, green "T spine", and the rust color picks up the red in the set, with a little fancy flourish at the bottom. I then farmed the Dreadlord's Blade, since its color reflects the reddish parts, and its model is both unique and looks brutal.
Another decent 2-hander match with a unique model is the Sword of Justice; the green in it matches fairly well. I just don't like the "tuning fork" look of it.

Oh my God that looks amazing! Incredibly unique and fits together perfectly. It looks best with the Dreadlord's Blade imo.
I love how original a lot of the set are that have been linked, very cool to see all the variations. Still working on mine.
I haven't seen those shoulders be really worked into a set. You kept in mind the color scheme while still holding out on the reddish theme. I'm very impressed, Majestian.
What are some good shields and weapons for the challenge mode gear. Just finished my gold runs and now need some cool transmog items to go with it. I'm a blood elf.
