This past week, my thoughts wandered somewhat nostalgically to old Azeroth. There was one place in particular that I still miss going to – the Mirage Raceway. No matter what I was playing, or which faction I was on at the time, I loved going down with my mechanohog to just hang out and ‘race’.
Those memories are the inspiration for the latest transmog outfit – the ‘gnome racer’. I wanted the outfit to be snazzy, befitting of a racer afterall, and yet comfy and practical while my gnome revved up her mechanohog and prepared to leave goblins in the dust.
I wanted something stylish and unique so I started out with one of the coolest cloth chests in the game – Watcher’s Tunic – and built the rest of the set up from there. The pieces that make up this set come from a variety of sources so if you’re looking to put this one together, get ready to make a grand tour of Azeroth! Note that she is indeed wearing a shirt, Deckhand’s Shirt, to balance the deep cut of the tunic. The shirt is skin coloured so it’s very subtle in it’s appearance.
Where to get this set:
Shoulders: Reinforced Woolen Shoulders (Tailoring)
Gloves: Ebony Flame Gloves (Ebonroc, Blackwing Lair)
Waist: Embereye Belt (Avenger’s of Hyjal, Honoured)
Legs: Embersilk Leggings (Auction House, random mob drops)
Feet: Embersilk Boots (Auction House, random mob drops)
Shirt: Deckhand’s Shirt (Auction house, Southsea mob drops)
Head: Spellpower Goggles Xtreme (Engineering)
The sad news about this outfit for me, is that I’ve already long completed the quest that provides the chest on my main gnome. (In 6 years of playing, I’m bound to throw things away 🙂 ) So if I do manage to get this set, it would have to be on a new reroll and I’m honestly quite tempted to to it.
Although the goggles are so quintessentially gnome, I think this set also looks really good on a taller race like humans.
And frankly, it’s a lovely change from the usual robes and elegant shoulders priests have. I mean, who wouldn’t want their medic to look like this?
