The Monk class was introduced in Mists of Pandaria as a versatile melee fighter that utilizes both martial arts and spiritual techniques to take down their enemies.
Monks enjoy meditating, pummeling fand aces, doing weird kicks and they like to dress well while doing those things.
Our list of Monk transmog features everything from grand robes to ornate armor pieces.
These are the 10 best Monk transmogs sets picked by the MMORPG.GG crew.
We have only selected whole sets, but transmog can and should of course be mixed and matched for the best results! They are in no particular order.
10. Chi’Ji’s Battlegear
How To Get It: Antorus, the Burning Throne
Match With: Hand of the Dark Animus, Torall, Rod of the Shattered Throne
Race Choice: Pandaren
Chi’Ji’s Battlegear is an attention-grabbing transmog set that features floating globules and metallic details.
This is a great set for any race but the hat looks a bit off to me on anything but Pandaren.
9. Vestments of the Red Crane
How To Get It: Heart of Fear
Match With: Huntmaster’s Halberd,
Race Choice: Undead
Vestments of the Red Crane is a great set if you want a bit of a darker look, with dark textiles, and eerie glowing pearls on the head and shoulders.
Both the Heroic and Raid Finder Versions have a bit of an evil look to them, so I like it on Undead, except for the Helm which looks absolutely ridiculous.
8. Vestments of the Seven Sacred Seals
How To Get It: Siege of Orgrimmar
Match With: Dread Aspirant’s Gavel
Race Choice: Blood Elf or Draenei
Vestments of the Seven Sacred Seals is a sturdy-looking set with a great glowing effect and details.
This set is suitable for Monks who prefer a more traditional look, while still looking stylish and formidable in battle.
The glow of the Mythic one makes it a good fit for Blood Elf Monks. The normal version is also great at fits Draenei Monks.
7. Grandmaster’s Finery
How To Get It: Monk Legion Order Hall
Match With: Pursuit of Victory,
Race Choice: Pandaren
Grandmaster’s Finery is a regal-looking set that features ornate gold and light tones. This set is perfect for Monks who want to look like an esteemed leader and master of martial arts.
It’s a strange set, but still very much a set fitting a monk. It’s the kind of garb I would imagine a Pandaren royal or diplomat would wear.
6. Vestments of Enveloped Dissonance / Vindictive Gladiator’s Ironskin Armor
How To Get It: The Nighthold
Match With: Tracker’s Spear,
Race Choice: Any
Vestments of Enveloped Dissonance is a sleek, toned-down set with sharp lines.
A lot of the sets from The Nighthold look good on Nightborne, Void Elves, Night Elves, and Blood Elves. This set is no exception, although it really looks great on any race.
5. Battlewrap of the Hurricane’s Eye
How To Get It: Hellfire Citadel
Match With: Veil-Touched Ranseur,
Race Choice: Any
Battlewrap of the Hurricane’s Eye is more of an understated transmog set, but it certainly does not lack in elegance or style.
This set features intricate details and beautiful gems that make it perfect for Monks looking to exude grace and poise in battle.
For this set, I personally prefer the Normal version. It’s understated and clean with a lot of nice little details, like the gems and feathers.
The mythic version is cool as well, especially on Orc Monks as it’s very Fel-inspired.
4. Fire-Charm Vestments
How To Get It: Throne of Thunder
Match With: Spear of Xuen,
Race Choice: Any
Fire-Charm Vestments is an all-around nice-looking set with plenty of details and glowing effects. This set is perfect for Monks who want to look powerful and full of energy in battle.
Another great MoP-era monk set. All the versions look good, and on almost all races.
3. Battlegear of the Somber Gaze
How To Get It: Blackrock Foundry
Match With: Blackhand Doomstaff, Teebu’s Scorching Straight Sword
Race Choice: Orc
Battlegear of the Somber Gaze has really great textures and an amazing helmet and shoulders.
This is a set that truly looks great on Orcs and other members of the horde.
I think the Normal and Heroic versions are much cooler than the Mythic version, although the Mythic one has a pretty cool effect on the shoulders.
2. Xuen’s Battlegear / Cruel Gladiator’s Ironskin Armor
How To Get It: Tomb of Sargeras
Match With: Korthian Attendant’s Scepter, Quake-Detecting Seismostaff
Race Choice: Tauren, Troll, or Zandalari Troll
Xuen’s Battlegear is a stunning set that features intricate, bold details and realistic-looking tiger imagery. This set is perfect for Monks who want to look fierce in combat.
A fantastic-looking Monk set. All color variations are awesome, but the Mythic one is the only one with the floating orbs.
1. Prideful Gladiator’s Ironskin Armor
How To Get It: PvP Vendor
Match With: Liuyang’s Lovely Longstaff
Race Choice: Nightborne, Void Elf, Night Elf, or Troll.
With the hood on, the Prideful Gladiator’s Ironskin Armor almost looks a bit Rogueish.
The effect on the helm and shoulder is very Monkish though and one of the coolest effects on any piece of gear.
It is just overall an amazing-looking set.
That’s it for the list of the best Monk transmog sets! Whether you’re looking for a sleek, modern look or an ornate ensemble that exudes elegance and power, there’s something here for everyone. So go ahead and pick out your favorite Transmog set and show off your skills on the battlefield!
