After having spent all that time in frigid Icecrown grinding Silver Covenant rep, I suppose it’s not all that surprising that the Silver Covenant tabard was the first thing my two Alliance Mages thought of when they set out to make “iceberg” Transmogrification kits.

Aldor Covenant

Pauldrons & Vestments of the Aldor, Nethershard Girdle, Gloves of the Fallen Wizard, Staff of the Unknown Road, Silver Covenant Tabard
Why the Silver Covenant NPCs are wearing Mage T4 raiment, I don’t know. But because they are, and because the Aldor are a Draenei faction, and because she is Draenei, Kaprikka insisted upon dressing like the Silver Covenant NPCs for her Silver Covenant set rather than coming up with something more original.
Kaprikka chose this hairstyle to go with this set in honor of her hero/role-model concerning all things Draenei and Mage-ical, Millya.

Silver Seer


Theramore Arcanist’s Hat*, Pauldrons of Sufferance, Seer’s Robe, Sage’s belt gloves & boots, Cloak of Cheerful Flowers, Greatstaff of Righteousness, Silver Covenant Tabard
The stripeyness of the tabard blends quite nicely with the stripeyness of this robe!
The hat may be considered optional or replaced with headpieces such as the Chief Architect’s Monocle, Moonsoul Crown, or Gaea’s Circlet.

The Warlock and the Rogue objected to the time I was spending down at Angler’s Wharf with Kaprikka and Kinevra — until they were reminded that they needed their beauty sleep.

Tweets Lightsprocket patrols the road between Halfhill and Zhu’s Watch.









“Tina” is probably Tina Wang, not Tina Mudclaw, for two reasons: 1) Tina Mudclaw loves jewelry (Gina is the one who loves flowers), and 2) Tina Wang seems to know Tweets:

How did Tweets become acquainted with Tina Wang and Uncle Gus? These two pandaren reside in the Horde’s Shrine of Two Moons. Were they originally intended to reside in the Alliance’s Shrine of Seven Stars, instead, and got mixed up somehow?

Cimmeria wasn’t the only one who got a lovely new Transmogrification kit out of last night’s OLRG run through the Firelands and Naxxramas-25. Kaprikka, who’d come along to hang out with her dear friends and help out with getting some achievements, intended to and did pass on just about everything that dropped because she had precious few open bag spaces. She’d forgotten, however, that Naxx-25 contains a couple of items that she actually did need…

A couple of years ago, Shoryl of Tiny WoW Guild — better known to the OLRG as Breige or Gurdrid — started a Transmogrification meme called “Mog Busting”. Though it was a fantastic idea, it sadly fizzled out after only a few rounds. While it was going, however, Kaprikka was lucky enough to have a beautiful dating outfit designed for her by Effraeti. Kaprikka was glad that Effy had suggested a few alternate items for the shoulders, because Effy’s first choice shoulders dropped in Naxx-25 and Kaprikka wasn’t sure she’d ever be able to get them. Last night, though, the shoulders Effy recommended dropped, and she rolled Need on them and won!

Thank You, Effy, and Thank You Old Ladies Faerie Godmothers!

The preview of the new female Night Elf model released this week has inspired me to post this story, which I wrote primarily during summer and autumn of 2011.

~*~*~

I don’t remember the glory of Zin’Azshari or the decadence of the Highborne.

I don’t remember the War of the Ancients or the Sundering of the world.

My mother once told me that there were more kaldorei children born in the fifty years immediately following Illidan Stormrage’s creation of the second Well of Eternity and the planting of Nordrassil by the Aspects than there were in the previous — or following — five hundred.

Scorned, derided, and shunned by the kaldorei, the remaining Highborne kept to themselves, but we occasionally saw them walking around the very outskirts of Constellas, where we lived. As a child and a youth, I was intensely fascinated by their pale, solemn, haughty countenances and their richly-decorated, yet increasingly threadbare apparel. My parents grew tired of my continual pestering to know more about them. After my father’s patience finally broke and he shouted at me — “Arcane magics destroyed our world! They are forbidden for a reason! Do not seek after them any more!” — I stopped asking about the Highborne… but when I had come of age, my parents could not prevent me from associating with them.

A few recent Transmogrification kits with which I am particularly well-pleased. Two of them use current tier items that I would not have even been able to think about using without the Mists LFR paradigm.

Shadra’s Burning Scroll

Burning Scroll Hood & Mantle (LFR), Hibernal Robe, Sorcerer’s Belt of Final Winter, Shimmering Gloves + Goldenvine Wraps, Ikeyen’s Boots, Formal White Shirt, Inscribed Serpent Staff
Dragonray’s ROYGBiV-Yellow outfit inspired Kaelinda to dive into Terrace of Endless Spring LFR. Luckily, it only took two weeks for her to win both the hat and the shoulders — and the belt. This kit would be very appropriate for a Troll!

Winged Triumph

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.

Soulspark

Cloudscorcher Cowl, Angkhal Amice, Soulcloth Vest, Wizard’s Belt, Manaspark Gloves, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Staff of the Redeemer
This hat looks best, I think, on white-haired Draenei and (naturally) Pandaren.
I was unexpectedly delighted by how nice this kit looked on a Goblin while running the Dark Heart of Pandaria scenario — or maybe it was just that this kit looked great in that room?

As always, swing by my Fashion page to see if any other classes have also been recently updated.

Double Agent

And Kaprikka makes 90 #11.

It was late enough already when she dinged that my usual fresh 90 routine — meeting with Wrathion, doing Path of the Last Emperor, and visiting the Timeless Isle — will have to wait for another day.

Then it will be the Warlock’s turn.

After three intense months of mogging, Dragonray’s Mog the World in 80 Days competition has come to an end and the Grand Prize has been awarded. Dragonray, Navimie, Cymre, and I discussed at least three different methods of determining the overall winner, and Syrco came out on top in every analysis!

Bravo, Syrco!

Runner-up Plaid Elf came in a very close second in all the same analyses. Her winning set for Uruguay in Week 8 would make a totally boss outfit for Anduin Wrynn, dontcha think?

I spent quite a while trying to get the face to look right before I gave up and cheated by putting in the face from my WMV pose reference picture.

I had a blast helping to judge the competition. I was so impressed by the creativity of all the participants. I looked forward to seeing what fabulous new outfits would be up in the Judges’ Corner each weekend. Here are some of my personal favorite outfits from each week that didn’t win — either I gave my highest score of the week to this outfit but the outfit I gave my second-highest score to won instead, or I gave my second-highest score to this outfit on a week in which the outfit I gave the highest score to did win.

For everyone who participated, I’ve made this badge to display on your blog, if you wish:

Thank you, Dragonray, for hosting such a splendid Transmogrification event!
