The only cloth-type version of leather headdress models such as Murkblood Cover, Phantasmal Headdress, Feathered Headdress, etc. The item dropped from Nimar the Slayer, a rare spawn in Arathi Highlands. It appears that Nimar's loot table changed at some point and this item is not included in it. I plan to create a ticket to confirm its status, if possible.
Update 20 Feb 2013: I contacted a Game Master; the GM replied that "[...]I can tell you that it does indeed still drop[.]" It's entirely possible that the item was accidentally removed for a period of time and then was later corrected. Or it could be that the GM isn't right (different GMs can occasionally give conflicting information). TL;DR - Just be aware that it likely will take you a long time, if ever, to farm the headdress.
Update 05 Mar 2014: I should have known better. GMs do not have a good track record when it comes to item availability in the game, but I guess I just really wanted to believe I could obtain it. I conferred with MMOSimca and had to agree that the GM was wrong. Arathi Highlands, prior to the Shattering patch, was a level 30 - 40 zone (is now level 25 - 30 zone) and Nimar was level 37 (instead of his current level of 26).
There just is no way that a level 26 mob can drop an item level 37 helm that requires character level 32 to equip. None. (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻
Update 12 Dec 2014: The helm finally showed up on my realm's Auction House for 44K buyout (which is a steal, by the way)! My sister, Alayea, is the absolute best for snagging it for me. <3 For everyone else, don't despair! Keep checking Trade channel and your AH.
Update 19 Dec 2014: See Alayea's comment!
Only for yours truly to loot from Big Crate of Salvage today. I wonder if that's why it finally showed up on our AH last week.
Yup! I edited the screenshot for her.
Proof that crates from the Salvage Yard can contain old, previously unobtainable items:
Thank you so much for the update! I've been trying forEVER to get this for a mog set and I finally decided to research it. I'm glad you posted this, its a relief to know I can stop trying and choose a new helm. XD
