Topic Best monk transmog?
There are few old sets that work with the feel of monk. My advice is to download the Mogit addon, find a weapon helm or something you like, and build a set around it.
Custom sets are nice and unique, but require a lot more work. For monks, however, its almost needed.
I have two problems with monk transmogs: A) Making sure I don't look like a rogue, and B) Fist weapons. I've yet to find a fist weapon that corresponds with my sword well. On the plus side, in game having one sword sheathed on my back looks kind of awesome.
Overall, once I can find a fist weapon or find a replacement for my fist weapon I'll be very happy with my mog.
I've yet to actually gather mine (it's gonna take quite a bit...) but I already have a set in mind
these shoulders are the only part of it I've gotten so far...
Chestwrap of the Regal Lord
Malevolent Gladiator's Ironskin Spaulders
Malevolent Gladiator's Waistband of Cruelty
Legwraps of the Regal Lord
Malevolent Gladiator's Boots of Cruelty
Cloak of the Silent Mountain
is what I'm thinking
and Hood of Cursed Dreams if you REALLY want a helm...
If you're gonna go with hailstorm for weapons, either mine or the blue bloodfang recolor set is your best bet. My weapons (which don't show on character sheet because its a glow effect) basically look like blue lightsabers though. http://www.wowhead.com/item=24361
