I had seen many players try to create a ninja transmog. Most were based on WoW’s idea of ninja which could be achieved through consumption of “Savory Deviate Delight“. However, I think that transmog lacks luster, so I came up with my own.
Most of the pieces seen here are from instances in TBC Expansion. Here is the list of items and where you can get them:
Head: “Helm of Assassination” – This can be gotten from Arcatraz and it drops from Harbinger Skyriss. This may take a few runs because it only has a 15% drop chance. However this is a crucial piece of the transmog set because it looks better than any other piece you can get at the moment.
Shoulders: “Shoulderpads of Assassination” – This drops in Sethekk Halls from Talon King Ikiss. The drop chance is a bit higher at 18%. These shoulderpads are part of the assassination set that combines with the helm.
Chest: “Tunic of the Limber Stalker” – Now there is a chest piece you can get that is from the Assassination set like the items listed above, however, I found that this chest piece works better because of its extended neck. The color scheme suits perfectly as well and I think this makes this mog more “special” and “realistic.” This piece comes from Ulduar, from the “Freya’s Gift” container. You may have to raid Ulduar a few times because the drop chance for this is only 15%.
Weapon: “Survivor’s Blade” – I’ll be honest, I got this because it was the easiest to get samurai style dagger (I am Assassination/Subtlety spec.) There are others with extremely low drop chances out there and some can be found on the auction house. However, they do cost a pretty penny to get. This one, on the other hand, is a quest reward. So if you are from the Alliance faction, you only need to travel to Southern Barrens and complete the “Bael’dun Rescue” quest.
Hands: “Handgrips of Assassination” – These are also part of the Assassination set. They drop in The Black Morass from Aeonus. They have a 16% drop chance.
Belt: “Dusky Belt” – I had crafted this item myself on my leatherworker. It needs 195 skill in LW to make, which is fairly easy to achieve. It is also quite cheap on the AH so you can simply buy it there. I got it because it is the correct shade of black and looks very rugged. However, you can replace the belt with whatever you see fit.
Legs: “Leggings of Assassination” – These are also part of the Assassination set. They drop from Shadow Labyrinth from Murmur. They have a measly 12% drop chance, so I wish you luck with that.
Feet: “Boots of the Shifting Sands” – Though they are not part of the Assassination set, they feel like they belong in it. Which is why I got them. These drop in The Botanica from the last boss Laj, They have a 17% drop rate, however, you can also pick up a lot of Sunfury Signets from farming them and increase your reputation with the Scryers! Provided, of course, you’re with the Scryers…
All other items such as wrists and cape don’t matter because they don’t show. (Hide cape in options.) If you do want a cape, you can choose from many black ones available that would work with the mog.
It’s hard to find good sets for leather wearers, however I am here to give ideas and how to get them! Look forward to my next post: “The Most Revealing Mail Transmog!“
