We won't be doing any transmog today. While most items you'd want to wear can be transmogrified, farmer's outfits don't tend to benefit from shoulder pauldrons or bracers. Instead we're just creating novelty costumes to enjoy while we tend to our farm and grind rep with the Tillers.
Overalls and beyond
If you want to go for the iconic farmer look, the cloth chest worn by the panda above is Blue Overalls. It's made by tailors and not hard to find, though the pattern must first be purchased from a few choice vendors. You can also find a recolor of these overalls, Mechbuilder's Overalls in Gnomeregan if you're lucky. Any class that wears leather could also try wearing Mixologist's Tunic and with Ranger Pants (or something similar) for the same look.
But you don't have to stop at overalls. There are plenty of cloth and leather items that could be used for farmer's clothes. Anything brown, anything with patches. Short sleeve items look good, too. For your feet, try to find black or brown boots that looks worn or dirty. Consider some of the following items for inspiration.
There are a plethora of shirts available that will really sell your farmer look. Some can even be worn alone without an accompanying chest piece.
A lot of the shirts worn by newly created, level 1 characters prior to Cataclysm
can be purchased from Thomas Yance
in the instance Old Hillsbrad Foothills
. These work well with some of the cloth vests linked above.Pitchfork vs. shovel
There are two problems with wielding a pitchfork. The first is that since The Shattering there is only one pitchfork left in the game, Rusted Pitchfork
, and to get it you'll have to farm mobs with a freshly made death knight in the class's starting zone. The second problem is that the item is classified as a polearm, so only a few classes can wield it.
So, allow me to present you with a solution: shovel. Though not as iconic as the classic pitchfork, there are more shovel options in the world from which to choose. First, if you can't wield 2-handed maces, you can equip Shovel of Mercy
which is classified as a one-handed mace ... It is unfortunately only available through a Horde quest. There is also the Herbalist's Spade
, which will display on your back regardless of what class you are, as long as you're an herbalist and have the item in your bags.
Below are the rest of the shovels still left in the game. They all have low drop rates, but are likely to show up on the auction house.
Have a farmer's outfit of your own? Take a screenshot of it at your Tillers farm in Valley of the Four Winds, and send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. If I get enough nice ones, I'll feature some of them later this month.
Patch 4.3 lets you transmogrify your gear to look like any other gear your class can wear -- but you have to collect it first. Check out our coverage of transmogrification and start running those old dungeons!
