Nightslayer Recolour


Nightslayer Recolour
Tier 1 Rogue Lookalike

Armor Type: Leather
Level Req.: 70
Source: BoP boss drops from normal and heroic outland dungeons
Availability: Time consuming but easy to get if you have a 5 man group for it

How to get the set:
The challenge with this set, is getting the group to do mostly heroic versions of various Outland dungeons (At level 85 we will most likely be able to solo these) The drop chances are reasonable, and even non-rogues can wear this recolor of the tier 1 set for rogues from the Molten Core days.

Head – Savage Mask of the Lynx Lord (BoP from boss The Black Stalker 12% drop chance, in Heroic Underbog)
Shoulders – Sun-Gilded Shouldercaps (BoE from the boss Chrono Lord Deja 17% drop chance in both normal and heroic Black Morass)
Chest – Chestguard of the Prowler (BoP sometimes contained in Reinforced Fel Iron Chest with a 14% chance, which you can open after defeating Nazan & Vazruden in heroic Hellfire Ramparts only)
Gloves – Predatory Gloves (BoP from the boss Tavarok 15% drop chance in heroic Mana-Tombs only)
Waist – Epoch’s Whispering Cinch (BoP from the boss Epoch Hunter 14% drop chance in heroic Old Hillsbrad Foothills only)
Legs – Mennu’s Scaled Leggings (BoP from the boss Mennu the Betrayer 15% drop chance in heroic Slave Pens only)
Feet – Silent-Strider Kneeboots (BoP from the boss Omor the Unscarred 13% drop chance in heroic Hellfire Ramparts only)

    The Starrgo”s Walking Stick goes pretty well with it!

  2. Moirette says:

    the dagger Terror Flame Dagger matches perfect. Drops off Omar the Unscarred in Hellfire Ramprts (H). Already have to farm the boots off him. Good luck.

  3. Qeu says:

    Anyone have a good golden fistweapon that match this set or any golden set?

  4. Talon says:

    A good back piece is the Gray Hair Cloak Able to be bought with JP from cata vendor.

    Also there is a fist weapon Unholy Persuader.

    Both items have perfect coloring and design to go with it.

  5. Tapzswag says:

    Finish it off with a sandstone drake!

  6. Flickerie says:

    Hey [Recovered Scarlet Onslaught Cape] is a really good cape for that set, give it a look!

  7. Lidrena says:

    You can get the same model helm for a easier method at shatrath for a tiny amount of justice. Also… Why are all the cool mogs in heroic dungeons D:.

  8. Alkispandan says:

    I’ve got this transmog for my male pandaren monk, looks badass! I’m using [Scryers Tabard] for it and it matches perfectly! Link to wowhead:

  9. Kaidah says:

    Completed this set today, after a couple of days of farming. Actually got the chest on first run. Boots and head has aluded me so I went with the shadowmoon valley quest boots and the vendor bought headpiece.

    Link here of my female dwarf monk sporting it with dual Maladath blades, enjoy :)

  10. Limitbreaker says:

    I can confirm that the chest drops. Looted my chest the 22nd of december 2012.
    Happy hunting!

  11. Greed says:

    I firmly believe everyone who says they looted the chest is completely full of shit.

    This set is incomplete without the chest, you’ll be forced to wear a work around chest piece while hiding it under a tabard.

    Moving on to another transmog set.

    • Noelani says:

      I had to put the theory to the test out of curiosity, and I can confirm that is certainly does still drop.

      • Greed says:

        … Its always after I rage that I get what I want.

        It is 12/12/2012, 3:14PM and I have gotten the chest piece.

        The chest piece does NOT show up on the dungeon journal’s loot table but don’t lose your heart as much as I did over it. I even opened a ticket with a GM who said this could go two ways.

        1: It is a bug in that it is not showing up in the dungeon journal
        2: It is a bug that you can loot it still

        If 2 is the real issue here then people farming this set will be in trouble later if Blizzard decides to try and fix this. But seeing how many bugs exist to date. I’m sure you’ll be safe for years.

        Happy hunting =]

    • Twoshoeslou says:

      Can confirm that this chest does drop or you can go with [Toughened Leather Armor] as a back up

  12. supreemo says:

    any suggestions on a staff for this set?

  13. Fletcher says:

    Rogues can replace the hideous shoulders with the much more streamlined Valorous Bonescythe Shoulders (25-man T7) from Naxx25. Everyone else is still SOL.

    • Panzzer says:

      EXCELLENT suggestion – these shoulders look sick. The only reason I stopped farming this set was because the original shoulders look hideous. Hard part will be finding anyone running Naxx25 though… :(

  14. Gordon says:

    Better shoulders that match anyone?

  15. Bleep says:

    Anyone have any decent ideas for matching daggers?

  16. cavallera says:

    2nd opt for gloves
    Earthmender’s Fists of Undoing

  17. Dangerous says:

    you can buy the exact mask from the vendor in shat, Mask of the deciever.

  18. random says: Dartoon’s cloak is easier to get, like 5 minutes

  19. Biss says:

    The Felboar Hide Shoes ( are a more appropriate lookalike to the original set than the ones that drop off Omor. The only caveat is that they are a quest reward from the cipher of damnation chain, and may not be available if people have already done that particular line.

    • Goat says:

      Er… how are they more appropriate if they look exactly the same?

      • Myon says:

        They are not exactly the same, the ones here have a little ruff around the calf area while the ones that Biss linked don’t.

        In that respect they fit this recoloured set better, as the T1 nightslayer boots don’t have that ruff either.

  20. Jovana says:

    Warmonger’s Cloak might go well with it. Or, alternatively, Cloak of the Black Void.

    A bit harder to get, but could make an interesting combo: Cloak of the Golden Hive from AQ.

  21. Anonymous says:

    The Belt of the Raven Lord is indeed a fine replacement. Could someone suggest a cape to go with this set?

  22. Anonymous says:

    An alternative belt that isn’t so time consuming to get (Escape from Durnholde is always long.) is the Belt of the Raven Lord from Anzu in Heroic Sethekk Halls.
