A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Tauren and Blood Elf-turned-Dwarf Paladins. I will update it whenever I change my in-game outfit. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).
Jade set with Acid-Etched Pauldrons, Qon’s Flaming Scimitar, and Purehearted Cricket Cage
One of my goals during Mists of Pandaria was to heal in LFR with a character of every healing class. I achieved that goal, with a healer of each class who completed at least Terrace of Endless Spring from T14, all of Throne of Thunder, and Siege of Orgrimmar through the Sha of Pride. The very charming Purehearted Cricket Cage drops from the second boss in the Vale of Eternal Sorrows opening wing of the Siege of Orgrimmar.
I put up with the Jade set being platekini because I love its unique coloration so much. I’d be much happier if it looked on my female character the way it looks on male characters, though!
Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Shoulderguards of Empty Memory, Glory of the Defender, Ogre Beater’s Belt, Legguards of the Fallen Crusader, Grips of Arcane Imprisonment, Deathseed Crushers, Rescuer’s Cloak, Stylish Black Shirt, Firestorm Hackblade, Shield of the Void
As long as Mists remains the current expansion, items containing both red and black will always immediately suggest that they be used in a Shado-Pan Helmet kit. Mists was already well enough along when I leveled my Paladin that I saved these Cataclysm quest reward items for future use in a Shado-Pan kit. Although her first Shado-Pan kit didn’t need them, they came in handy to coordinate with this chestpiece, which dropped while I was farming the Hyjal raid for something else.
Crown of Boastful Words, Mantle of Winged Triumph (LFR), Chestguard of Bitter Charms, Greatbelt of Living Waters, Legguards of the Apostle, Grips of the Fallen Council, Sabatons of the Humble, Cloak of Tranquil Clouds, Spellfire Longsword, Ancient Mogu Tower Shield (LFR)
This outfit is mostly comprised of pieces from another of my favorite tier sets from Mists LFR. Sadly, the sword that perfectly matches this shield, the LFR version of the Enchanted Shao-Tien Saber, is an Agility weapon and thus completely unobtainable by any spec of Paladin.
Lightbringer Greathelm, Judgement Spaulders, White Tiger Breastplate & Greaves, Abandoned Zandalari Bucklebreaker, Hyperion Gauntlets, Boots of the Redeemed Prophecy, Butcher’s Apron, Malice, Outland Shield
This set takes a cue from PlaidElf‘s very effective combination of the T14 chestpiece & leggings with the T2 gloves & boots in her winning outfit for Week 9 of Dragonray’s Mog the World competition.
Pretty Pally Princess
Circle’s Stalwart Helmet, Pauldrons of the Touched, Chestguard of Bitter Charms, Legguards of the Apostle, Bloodscale belt gloves & boots, Shroud of Akali, Scimitar of Seven Stars (LFR), Aegis of the Vindicator
I’d been farming Plague Quarter of Naxx-25 for the Girdle of Unity. These DK starting zone recolor items also drop in Plague Quarter, and I happened to pick them up along the way. Looking at their powder blue color, I was reminded of a recent OLRG conversation concerning the suitability of baby blue and pink for Warlock attire — and then I just had to make this kit!
High Chief’s Justice
Justice Bearer’s Pauldrons, High Chief’s Armor & Legguards, Bog Walker’s Belt, Life Bearer’s Gauntlets + Junior Technician 3rd Grade Bracers, Fen Strider’s Footguards, Shadowvine Cloak of Infusion, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Encapsulated Essence of Immerseus (LFR), Adamantine Kite Shield
I farmed the purple Judgment shoulders & gloves specifically to make this kit, and they will probably be the only pieces of that set that I collect. Someday, I’d like to acquire the original red/gold/black Judgment shoulders & gloves, too — but I don’t think I’ll ever collect the entirety of either set.
Talonguard Helmet, Pauldrons of Violent Eruption (LFR), Alabaster Breastplate, Refreshing Abalone Girdle (LFR), Chitinous Plate Legguards, Gauntlets of Steadfast Determination, Emerald Sabatons, Kri’tak, Imperial Scepter of the Swarm (LFR), Ward of Despair
When Karaelia’s first venture into Throne of Thunder LFR netted her this belt, I had the idea to collect as many differently-sourced items as I could find in the color that Prinnie calls “nuclear snot green”. Perhaps Blizz is so fond of this color for the LFR versions of stuff as a way to subtly encourage people to do “real” raiding to get the better colors?
I also use a Grey Woolen Shirt with this set; it blends in nicely with the darker tones of the Alabaster Breastplate. I’d forgotten to actually save the shirt into the set in the gear manager, though, and when I switched sets to take pictures, I forgot to put it on.
Circle’s Stalwart Helmet, Forgotten Peacekeeper shoulders chest & pants, Talonguard Girdle, Templar Gauntlets, Sapphiron’s Scale Boots, Cloak of Tranquil Clouds, Scimitar of Seven Stars (LFR), Don Gonzales’ Shiny Shield
This sword is why Karaelia did T14 LFR. When she finally got it, this set came together rather magically.
Kel’Thuzad drops a mace that exactly matches this shield. I suppose it’s not too surprising that both the mantid and the nerubians could have some tol’vir influenced/derived weaponry.
Elder Tortoiseshell Helm, White Tiger Mantle (LFR), High Chief’s chestpiece pants gloves & boots, Junior Technician 3rd Grade Bracers, Bloodfist Belt, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Solianti’s Insect Smasher, Drillborer Disk
The purple noses of the LFR version of the T14 Paladin shoulders inspired me to pair them with the High Chief’s set.
I’m very fond of the combination of the blue Carapace Breaker and Zom’s Crackling Bulwark, so naturally I wanted to use the orange versions together, too!
Everbright set with Talonguard belt gloves & boots, Platinum Sword, and Tian Defender
This is the intellect plate set created from Timeless Isle armor tokens. The Tian Defender shield is identical to that used by Niuzao Sentinel NPCs at the Black Ox’s temple in Townlong Steppes.
Crusader Karaelia, the Argent Champion
Thunderwood Helm, Forgotten Peacekeeper Shoulders, Imperial Plate Chest, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Clasp of Meditation, Inkling’s Leggings, Gauntlets of Purification + Bracers of Ancient Tales, Glintrok Sollerets, Holy War Sword, Highlord’s Favor, Argent Crusader’s Tabard
The achievement that awards the Crusader title is account-wide, but Karaelia wanted it earn it properly, for herself, because she is a Paladin.
This outfit turned out very differently from how I originally imagined I might make an Argent Crusade kit for Karaelia — more silver, less gold. I’m really pleased with it, though. When I saw how nicely the Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Ornamented Spaulders coordinated with the helm, I almost used them. That was a little too much of the dull silver and gold tones than I really wanted for this kit, though. I might have to make another set that mixes and matches the Thunderwood set and the Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Redemption set later.
Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Runic Plate Shoulders, Alabaster Breastplate, Thorium Belt, Greaves of the Martyr, Bloodforged Gauntlets, Lavawalker Greaves, Redpine Cloak, Firestorm Hackblade, Bloodforged Guard, Stylish Black Shirt
This outfit is adapted from a striking black, white, and red ensemble originally designed by Honeypants of Mogoholic.
Brighthelm of Guarding, Grave Protector Shoulderplates, Silver-Plated Battlechest, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Girdle of Prowess, Chitinous Plate Legguards, Reiver Claws, Glintrok Sollerets, Imbued Pioneer Cloak, Sword of Heartwrenching Slaughter, Shield of the Void
This +Int helm was actually useful to me, during the appropriate level range, so I kept it, intending to later make it the feature piece of a Vrykul-inspired Transmogrification kit. I Transmogrified this outfit over my Holy kit because I hadn’t yet taken pictures of the outfit I was currently using for my Prot kit. Now that I've made the outfit, however, it seems more suited to a Warrior than to a Paladin — which makes sense, really, because the Vrykul don't have Paladins, only Warriors.
Emerald set with Strengthened Stockade Pauldrons, Insignia Cloak, Gladiator’s Salvation, Crystal Pulse Shield/Emerald Shield, and Thunder Bluff Tabard
The Dawnchaser Sunwalkers (e.g. Teya Dawnchaser) appear to be wearing a mixture of Relentless Gladiator’s and Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Elite gear. Karaelia will never be able to get that gear, so she’s content to emulate the Dawnchaser Braves instead. The shoulders worn by the Dawnchaser Braves look like they ought to be part of the crafted Fel Iron Plate set, but that set has no shoulders. Fortunately, the golden Stockade Pauldrons match the style of the NPC shoulders and blend well with the colors of the Emerald set.
Redeemed Blood Knight II
Embossed Plate Pauldrons, Ursa’s Embrace, Bloodfist belt gloves & boots, Leggings of the Ursa, Rescuer’s Cloak, Blade of Wizardry, Bloodforged Guard
The red-and-black color scheme traditionally used with this shield just doesn’t fit Karaelia’s personality. She is a Sunwalker, after all. Instead, I decided to use a darker-toned red-and-gold scheme. In the long run, when I’ve got the JPs to spare, I would like to use Liadrin’s Spaulders with this set.
Conqueror’s set with Pristine Lightforge Spaulders and Insignia Cloak
This set with these shoulders is a very popular combination, for good reason!
Bright New Day
Bloodcraver Pauldrons, Leonine Breastplate, Studded Girdle of Virtue, Starcaller’s Plated Legguards, Spiritualist’s Gauntlets, Earthmender’s Plated Boots, Rimblat’s Cloak, Greatsword of the Sunwalker, Sen’jin Tabard
Shortly before Karaelia dinged 70, I was idly browsing the AH and came across this weapon:
Its stats aren’t quite as good as the combination of the heirloom healing mace with Karaelia’s best +Int shield, but I just couldn’t pass up an opportunity to use the completely unique 2H Greatsword of the Sunwalker in a Holy-spec Transmogrification kit.
This kit lasted until level 74, when I went to Drak’Tharon Keep and won Tharonja’s Aegis. That shield all by itself has almost as much intellect as my 2H “of the Owl” mallet, so I reluctantly went back to heirloom mace and shield for my Holy set.
Hyperion set with Runic Plate Shoulders, Thorium Belt, Mageflame Cloak, Sunwell Blade, Outland Shield, Scarlet Filigreed Shirt, Silvermoon Tabard
Playing mostly Horde, I can’t help but associate this gorgeous set with the Sin’dorei.
Brightly Colored Shell
Bloodcraver Pauldrons, Jade chestpiece & leggings, Bloodscale belt gloves & boots, Rimblat’s Cloak
Shades of pink, mint green, and robins-egg blue create a brightly colored shell for a plate-wearing character!
Sealed with a Kiss
Runic Plate Shoulders, Bloodscale chestpiece belt gloves & boots, High Chief’s Legguards, Mageflame Cloak, Shield of Comrades*/Embossed Plate Shield
Someday, perhaps, I will obtain the Blood-Stained Pauldrons to wear with this set. Until then, the Runic Plate Shoulders will do. I’m delighted by how nicely the High Chief’s Legguards coordinate with the Bloodscale items — they’re just the right shade of purple.
Runic Plate shoulders, Emerald chest pants gloves & boots, Thorium belt, Mageflame Cloak
Whereas most of Kregga’s brightly colored gear is specifically intended for goofy holiday outfits, the pieces of Karaelia’s Winter Veil outfit are recombined from two RP-motivated (but fully Transmogrification-friendly) ensembles that I am in the process of assembling for her.
Glorious shoulders & belt, Sunscale chest pants gloves & boots, Insignia Cloak, Devout Aurastone Hammer, Highlord’s Favor
I’m wearing the Squire’s Shirt in this picture, but if I were to use this outfit again, I’d choose the Golden Filigreed Doublet.
Redeemed Blood Knight I
Bloodscale pauldrons, Ursa’s Embrace, Leggings of the Ursa, Hyperion belt gloves & boots, Tranquillien Champion’s Cloak, Sin’dorei Warblade
This set is a slight iteration of an outfit I originally described in “The Well-Dressed Paladin, Revisited” guest post I wrote for Manalicious.
After I decided that I would rather have a Dwarf for my secondary Paladin than a Blood Elf, I was delighted to find that this set also coordinates beautifully with the Ironforge tabard.
Sunwalker Initiates (Mail)
Princess Poobah’s Tiara, Grunt’s shoulders, mix-and-match of Grunt’s (golden) and Outrunner’s (blue) chest pants gloves & boots, Burnished belt, Insignia Cloak, Greatsword of the Sunwalker
Transmogrification-friendly sets for the under-level-40 Tauren Paladin, inspired by the Sunwalker Kodo.
These sets are viable max-level Transmogrification Kits for a Hunter or a Shaman.
