Legwarmers

A surprising thing happened when I killed one of the Pandarian Champions today. I had my first epic drop but that wasn’t the most interesting thing about it. Not only was it a cloth piece, it was a pair of pants (which I didn’t think much of at the time since my gear is higher) but since I am a mogaholic, I decided to preview them on my character.

Courinth Waterstrider's Silken Finery

Hmm

It seems there’s a new alternative to the Black Mageweave Leggings and the Ancestral Woollies (plus look-alikes) of Azeroth.

Personally I don’t really like either of the commonly used choices, although I have been known to use them on occasion. Most recently, I used a variation as you’ll see from one of my previous designs.

To be sure though, I wanted to see if these legwarmers would actually achieve what our Armed and Dangerous cloth-wearing toons have waited so long for.

Could we wear these without breaking the seam line of our beloved Princess Leia dresses?

So I collected what I needed from the bank to find out one way or another, using the older models for comparison:

Sadly, they’re not quite seemless but it’s really up to you which you’d like to use.

  1. Hmm, too bad that they don’t fit under the dress quite as nicely as you hoped. But I think I’d like the look of the Courinth Waterstrider’s Silken Finery + Black Mageweave/Cindercloth Vest + Ashwalkers Footwraps better than the current version of that look using the Black Mageweave/Cindercloth Leggings. It’s highly probable that I still wouldn’t use that sort of look on any of my own characters, though.
