Transmog: Challenge Mode Two Handers

I finally completed my Challenge Modes (as Windwalker…I’m sorry), which means I have all these new trasmog outfits! These sets aren’t completely new. They might be old sets with slight modifications to better match the weapons.

By the way, if you’re looking for advice in Challenge Modes, there’s a Tankcast for that!

Cloudsong Glaive

Red Tabard White Pants

A mix of monk Tier 16, Challenge Mode gear, and the Shado-pan tabard.

Seven Sacred Seals (Heroic)

A perfect match that doesn’t require much creativity (though it requires quite a bit of luck to get that belt).


Arcana Shard Spire

Shadowmoon Arcana

I wanted a simple set of armor that evoked draenei style without drawing attention away from the staff.

Greatstaff of Infinite Knowledge

Scholarly Red

The rune on the helm of normal monk Tier 18 is similar to the rune that appears on the staff. If you’re like me and sadly lack most of normal Tier 18, this set is a good alternative.


Hurricane’s Eye (Normal)

If you are lucky enough to own a set of normal Tier 18, then it works great with this staff! The yellow and beige match perfectly, and even the little balls on the shoulders match the foot of the staff.


Dimension Ripper’s Staff

Spirit Hunter

It’s difficult to align this creepy staff with any monk themes, so I modified a witch doctor transmog to match the trollish elements, instead.

    Oh the elusive T16 monk belt…

    Have you tried the Greatstaff of Infinite Knowledge with the monk CM armour from MoP?

    • Sunnier

      I’m sure the monk CM armor would work with Greatstaff of Infinite Knowledge. That weapon seems to be the best fit for it. Though I haven’t tried it because it feels too obvious! My co-tank is the worst at transmog because he only wears the druid CM set with the Cloudsong Glaive and so I overreact to that lack of creativity by trying not to do the same thing (though monk set + Infinite Knowledge would admittedly match better).

      • Lariel

        hehe, I can relate to him – after I got the paladin and druid sets, I can’t keep any other transmogs for too long. They are my favourites! But I see what you mean. :) I really like the T16 monk with Cloudsong (but maybe I’m also partial to that set).

  • Marcel Mauricio

    Have you any tips for gear or talents for CM as BrM?

    • Sunnier

      Unfortunately I did them all as windwalker. My co-tank, who has done them all before, offered to tank and I couldn’t pass on that offer. I can pass on some general stuff, like: regarding gear, Tablet of Turnbuckle Teamwork and Mirror of the Blademaster are excellent trinkets, Crit and Multistrike are BrM’s best dps stats and good defensively for CMs. I can’t say much about talents, other than taking Leg Sweep. RJW and Xuen were a toss up in Mists, but now that you can’t switch talents during a CM I’d probably go with RJW. ChEx is risky but it will give you higher AoE dps.

      • Marcel Mauricio

        I dont have Tablet anymore.
        I have Iron Reaver’s trinket, that gives Crit and Mastery passive, Eye and Mirror. Which are 2 best?

        • Sunnier

          Anything with passive stats is your next best bet, so I’d go with Iron Reaver’s trinket and Mirror.

          • Marcel Mauricio

            Any idea about defensive talent? Elixir, Damper Harm or Diffusal? As BrM, i have difficult in chose this row.

          • Sunnier

            Probably Dampen Harm for it’s overall utility. Healing Elixirs can be nice, but often you need something with a bit more oomph.
