Enlightenment Set

Enlightenment Set - Chiyu

I realized that though I have posted some guildie outfits, lately I have not posted any of my own!  Time to remedy that.

Even before I got Effy to Level 90, I started playing with a Monk.  They are quite an interesting class to heal with, and I had fun leveling her to 85, where she now sits.  I just cannot bring myself to level another toon to 90 right now.  I got Caeridwen to 90, and Lazheward is making progress – or at least he was until I started pet battling!

Now that the holidays are past, my goal is to get back to my various short stories.  One such story that I am currently working on includes my Rogue, Lycaohn, and my new Monk, Chíyu.  So it seems only appropriate to showcase their transmogs before then.

As soon as I saw Chíyu with the Jinxed Hoodoo Kilt I knew I had to build her an outfit with it.  This set is somewhat progressive – it evolved as she she did.  So there are actually two sets here.

My goal was to make a leather set that said “I am a Monk” – Monk items, Monk color, and not pieces that might make her look more like a Druid or a Rogue.  I am pretty happy with the results, and you can expect to see her in some form of this set in my short story.

P.S. = Even though Chíyu is now Level 85, I made the mistake of trying out a Draenei Monk.  I am totally hooked.  Their animations are awesome, and I am already very partial to Draenei…  So although Chíyu is now a story character and not going anywhere, I imagine it will be my Draenei, Ireenia (her page will fill out more once she is over Level 10 and shows up on the Armory), that I start to focus on more.  Besides, this FINALLY gives me a Draenei I can play with leather sets on!

  1. I’ve not been particularly fond of the Moonglade shoulders and the set they go with for Druids, but wow, they’re just perfect for your Monk!

    I keep wondering why I have a bank bag full of other belts when really in my head I know that I’ll probably never use anything but the Monk class quest reward belts for my Monk :P

    • Yah, I agree. While I was putting the outfit together, I kept avoiding those Moonglade shoulders and looking at other things. But I kept coming back to them. Finally, I went with it, and they do go well! I am still surprised at how much I like them with the set. Honestly, it was originally the Druid Challenge Mode shoulders I first went “OMG those are awesome!” and then I had to rein myself in. lol

      The Monk belts do seem ideal – especially when going for a class-specific look. I will probably stick to using one of them on my Draenei Monk too. Her outfit is in the works. ;)

  2. This is a really lovely set! I was looking at those shoulders in purple for a set of mine, they are a nice model. I love the monk belts for female pandaren as well, everything else looks so stretched out! :/

    • Thanks, Dray! I have never found quite the right set for that style of shoulders until now, but I think they were the right choice. As for the belt, I totally agree. :)
