Azeroth’s Next Top Leather Model: Leather & Lace, Feathers & Face
I am a sucker for putting together outfits (if you have not already noticed), so I had to jump in with my two cents. While trying to decide which toon to showcase in a fabulous outfit, I recalled Solaes’ outfit that was never properly introduced on my Blog. So since it is still one of my favorites, I have picked Solaes.
For the in-game screenshots, Solaes and I flew around aimlessly for a while. We tried the Moonglade, but the atmosphere was so green, it made all her red pieces look black. We soared over Mount Hyjal, trying to find something fitting, but with no luck discovering a “perfect” spot there. We followed the great waterfall down from Hyjal to Azshara, and we both knew immediately it was there we would find our perfect setting. It still took a good deal of flying around, so much of Azshara has been destroyed by the Goblins. Finally, on a high, jagged piece of land that had not fallen away into the ocean, Solaes and I found our serene setting.
Azshara has always been one of my favorite zones, especially the trees with the falling leaves – an eternal Autumn (my favorite season).
Solaes agreed, but she also found herself melancholy…

Some thoughts on this outfit… I played around with the pieces for this set over a period of time, and even the shirt I just added a few days ago because it compliments the chestpiece so well. Unfortunately for most, the chestpiece is a LW’ing piece that binds on pickup. An alternative might be the Nightshade Tunic with the same shirt or a plain red shirt, or the Cabalist Chestpiece on its own. On her feet, I put sandals, because I think sandals look great and so fitting on a Night Elf. I am currently still seeking out more sandals in-game, and I have yet to find a transmoggable pair in cloth. Lastly, her weapon. Once I saw Terokk’s Quill with this outfit as I was building it, I knew no other polearm would do.
For lack of exerting the effort to name this set, I have previously been referring to it as the Fashionista Set. But a proper post deserves a proper name, and seeing Solaes standing at the ready, prepared to fight, I recalled her former self, from my time on Dark Age of Camelot. There Solaes was a Berserker, and so in a tribute to that, I deem this the Berserker Set.
