Warlocks are more than just goth mages. They are masters of shadow and flame and summoners of demons, drawing upon the power of the Void to curse their foes and preserve their allies’ souls. Naturally, to reflect their mastery of the fel, every warlock in WoW needs a proper transmog set.
Warlock armor sets are usually purple or green, mirroring the fel powers they command. Many are adorned with skulls or demonic eyes while others feature horrific visages. Let’s take a look at some of the best transmog sets for warlocks in WoW: Dragonflight from our lowest ranked set to our favorite.
Best Warlock Transmog Sets in WoW: Dragonflight, Ranked Good to Best
Let’s dive into the list. We’ll be ranking these from our least to most favorite set.
Balespider’s Burning Vestments
Starting our list is this spider-themed set from the Cataclysm expansion. Also known as Tier 12, this set drops in the Firelands raid. The purple version pictured above drops on Heroic difficulty and an orange version drops on Normal. There’s also a muted brown and green color available through island expeditions.
The spider theme is well represented here, between the multiple eyes on the helm, the webbing on the shoulders, and the spider on the skirt of the robes.
Our next set is also from the Cataclysm expansion. Shadowflame Regalia, or Tier 11, drops in the first set of raids from that expansion: Bastion of Twilight, Blackwing Descent, and Throne of the Four Winds. The version pictured above comes from Heroic difficulty while a blue-green version drops on Normal.
The stitched executioner hood is the most interesting piece of the set, with its asymmetrical metal horns drawing the eye. The shoulders complement the helm nicely as well as the hooked details on the robes.
And now for a blast from the past: Nemesis Raiment, also known as Tier 2, was one of the first raid sets in the game for warlocks. Most of it drops from Blackwing Lair, with the legs dropping from Ragnaros in Molten Core and the helm coming from Onyxia.
Despite its age, the set holds up well. The skulls on the helm and shoulders glow a menacing green, and the purple wrapping around the arms is a nice detail.
Shadow Council’s Garb
Our next warlock transmog set is from the Warlords of Draenor expansion. Shadow Council’s Garb, or Tier 17, drops from Blackrock Foundry. The green version pictured above drops on Mythic difficulty, with some less appealing recolors dropping in the lower difficulties.
The set is very understated except for its eye-catching shoulders with their glowing green flames. Skulls adorn the set, and the Predator-looking helm is topped off with some glowing green horns to remind everyone of your fel background.
Sha Skin Regalia
This set from the Mists of Pandaria expansion is also known as Tier 14. It drops in the Terrace of the Endless Spring and Heart of Fear raids, with the green version pictured above dropping in Heroic difficulty. Red and blue recolors are also an option, dropping in the lower difficulties.
There are some creepy masks in this list, but none quite measure up to this one. The terrifying visage crowns a set that is otherwise fairly understated. Green medallions decorate almost every piece, a reminder of the set’s origins in Pandaria. Above the mask are a pair of crooked horns, just in case you forget you’re a warlock.
Legacy of Azj’Aqir
The Legacy of Azj’Aqir set, or Tier 19, originated in the Legion expansion. It can be obtained through the Nighthold and Emerald Nightmare raids, with the purple version above dropping on Mythic difficulty and some more muted recolors dropping on the lower difficulties and in PVP.
The strange horned helmet is reminiscent of some other sets in our list, but it’s the glowing purple orbs on the shoulders, robes, and gauntlets that give this set its Void-touched appeal.
Grievous Gladiator’s Felweave Armor
Up next, we have another set from the Warlords of Draenor expansion. Grievous Gladiator’s Felweave Armor was the PVP set for Arena Season 14, with red and gray recolors are also available.
This is another set with a creepy mask for a centerpiece. It also features a pointed hat, ideal for any warlock who enjoys the classic witch look. Metal chains and spikes and skull medallions decorate the shoulders, belt, and robes, complementing the mask.
Yet another set from the Warlords of Draenor expansion! Deathrattle Regalia, or Tier 18, can be obtained from the Hellfire Citadel raid. The green version shown above is available in Mythic difficulty. Some less remarkable recolors are available through the lower difficulties and PVP.
Another creepy mask stares back at you from beneath a chained crown that almost resembles a twisted halo. The skulls on the shoulders appear to be screaming, and multiple skeletal hands reach downward along the skirt of the robes.
Sinful Gladiator’s Vestment
A more recent set on our list comes from the Shadowlands expansion. Sinful Gladiator’s Vestment came from Shadowlands PVP Season 1. Several recolors are available through PVP and from the Castle Nathria raid. There are also pants for those who don’t like to wear a skirt.
This plague doctor look is especially appropriate if you happen to be an alchemist. Vials adorn the shoulders and belt, and the classic beaked mask is complemented by a witchy-looking pointed hat.
Dark Supplicant’s Garb
And now we have another set from Shadowlands and the most recent one on our list. Dark Supplicant’s Garb comes from the Sanctum of Domination raid, with the version pictured dropping on Mythic difficulty and several recolors available from the lower difficulties and PVP.
This fiery set has everything you’d expect to see in a warlock transmog: skulls, flames, spikes, and a creepy mask with glowing eyes. The flaming crown is the biggest draw, but the claw-like gauntlets are also unique.
Oblivion Cultist’s Robes
If your warlock spends a lot of their time gazing into the Void, this set will remind you that something might be gazing back. The only set on our list from the Battle for Azeroth expansion, Oblivion Cultist’s Robes drop in the Ny’alotha raid. The epic version pictured above drops on Mythic difficulty while some slightly less impressive versions drop on the lower difficulties and in PVP.
The touch of the Old Gods is apparent in this set, with the tentacles emerging from its Faceless mask and the glowing eyes on the shoulders and belt. Rune-like symbols decorate the robe and shoulders, and we’re not sure if we want to know what they say. Overall, a very fitting warlock transmog set.
Vestments of the Black Harvest
Most of the class order hall sets from Legion are underwhelming, but the warlock set is one of the exceptions. Obtained by completing your class order hall quests, this set has a bit of a demon hunter vibe. The helm and tattooed robe both look like they were inspired by Illidan.
Here we are with the very first raid set for warlocks: Felheart Raiment, or Tier 1. This set drops in the Molten Core raid, with a few matching headpieces available in the Blackrock Depths dungeon.
For many warlocks, this was the first complete set they were able to put together. Although a bit simple and dated looking, it gets big points for nostalgia. The strange tentacled shoulders and red-gold-green color scheme are unmistakable.
Conqueror’s Deathbringer Garb
At number two on our list, we have a set from the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. Conqueror’s Deathbringer Garb, or Tier 8, drops from the Ulduar raid. This version appears in 25-man while the orange version, Valorous Deathbringer Garb, drops in 10-man.
Once again it’s the mask that makes the set, and what a mask. The hood brings to mind Gul’dan, the most famous warlock in WoW, but the mask is something even more sinister. The spiked shoulders look equally unforgiving, and the skulls dangling from the belt complete the look.
And now for our number one warlock transmog set! This set was so good that it was remade in multiple recolors.
The original, Malefic Raiment, or Tier 6, originated in the Burning Crusade expansion. It drops in the Black Temple and Mount Hyjal raids. The remade version, Diabolic Raiment, or Tier 20, was introduced in the Legion expansion, dropping in the Tomb of Sargeras raid. The green version shown above drops on Mythic difficulty. Multiple vivid recolors are available from lower difficulties of the raid and through PVP.
The horned skull helm is memorable, but the real draw of this set is the demonic wings that sprout from your back when you equip the helm. Many veteran warlocks will remember when they first got their hands on the helm, back before transmogrification was a thing, when it was rare that you got to look cool in your raid gear.
