Diablo 3 Transmog Outfits for WoW: Monk, demon hunter, wizard

Image
It's been two weeks since Diablo III was released, and if you've got some time to spare, I've got three new transmogrification outfits that might interest you. If you'll recall, two weeks ago we learned how to recreate the witch doctor, barbarian, Leah, and Deckard Cain in WoW. As promised, this week we'll be taking a stab at the monk, demon hunter, and wizard, starting with the wizard.

Making a convincing wizard outfit in WoW is surprisingly easy, provided you keep a few things in mind. First off, you need to be very aware of your character's silhouette. Bulky gloves, spiky helms, and big shoulder armor are essential, and fortunately, they're all in ample supply on Azeroth. Knowing that, you just need to keep an eye on colors. If you look at the sample outfit, you should notice right off the colors don't quite match; the golds are different hues. Let that serve as a lesson on why it's important to leave yourself a lot of options when selecting the right piece for an outfit. Mismatched hues can sometimes break an outfit if it's not balanced right.

ImageIn my case, I made the mistake of committing too early on going with blue and gold, when I probably should have gone with something like gray and silver. Anyway, I suggest using this particular outfit as a guide for what kind of pieces you need, and take as many liberties as you like in matching the colors.


Monk

This outfit will be much harder to make for Horde players because of the inclusion of the Arathor Battle Tabard. Unfortunately, there aren't many imperial yellow tabards available to all players, so if you don't have the power to modify your guild's tabard, you may be out of luck. The only good-looking alternative I saw was Tabard of Fury, but it's very unlikely you'll be able to get it. The tabard can only be purchased with points collected from the old WoW Trading Card Game by Upper Deck.

Demon hunter

It's a little difficult to piece together a convincing demon hunter's transmog outfit if you want to go for the more armored look the character gets further into Diablo III. Because of this, I went with one of the lighter armored looks the character has early on in the game and didn't try to recreate the iconic hooded look. If you wants something closer to that hooded look, however, I suggest checking out a previous transmog article written by Anne Stickney, Transmogrify your character into a dark ranger, take 2.


Patch 4.3 lets you transmogrify your gear to look like any other gear your class can wear -- but you have to collect it first. Check out our coverage of transmogrification and start running those old dungeons!
