Dalaran Spellscribe

Magnificent Aeroglide Shoulderpads, Robe of the Moccasin, Nesingwary’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Warpstaff of Arcanum, Tabard of the Kirin Tor
This rare spawn NPC used to be the source of the Black Tabby pet. Now, that pet can only be found on the Black Market Auction House.
I thought about using these shoulders with the other black robe Kirin Tor outfits; they seemed the most appropriate for this one, though. The NPC belt isn’t available to players; Nesingwary’s Sash seemed to be the best replacement.

Dalaran Apprentice

Manaweave Robe*/Chromatic Robe, Circle of Ossus, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Suspicious Slippers, Ley Staff*
This outfit is a bit of a cheat. The NPC outfit uses the leather Songbird Blouse with the skirt of the Chromatic Robe. The Chromatic Robe is common quality and thus non-Transmogrifiable. The nearest Transmogrifiable item is the Manaweave Robe — which was rewarded from a pre-Cataclysm Mage class quest chain and is no longer availabe (except perhaps for Blood Elves?).

Emerald City

Watcher’s Cap, Blight-Lifter’s Mantle, Windroc Shroud, Mana-Cord of Deception (H), Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Boots of Duress, Cloak of the Makers, Khadgar’s Knapsack
I might not have ever used the green appearances of the Mage Artifact weapons if it hadn’t occurred to me that they’d go rather well with this outfit.
When I was leveling through the Jade Forest with my Human Mage, I wondered what the Oz backdrop was doing on the wall at Dreamer’s Pavilion. It occurs to me now that it is probably representing a painting of a journey to the Temple of the Jade Serpent.

Heavenly & Venerable

Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Anacondra’s Robe, Nethershard Girdle, Regal Gloves, Permafrost Cape, August Celestials Tabard, Clear Crystal Rod*
The Twilight Mantle is a perfect color match for this robe, but that style is uncomfortably large on Tauren. Besides, wings are so much more awesome.

Serpent Strike

Bristlebark Pauldrons, Armor of the Fang, Headhunter’s Belt, Luminary Kilt, Toughened Leather Gloves, Supple Boots (3-670)
This Artifact tint is awarded for retrieving Light’s Heart.
This outfit would also be very nice for a Druid or a Monk.

Needs More Spikes

Helm of the Illidari Shatterer, Tundra Pauldrons, Tomb-Curse Chestplate, Frostwolf Stalwart Girdle, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Plate Legguards, Gauntlets of the Bold, Blood-Soaked Saronite Stompers (N), Bulwark of Azzinoth
Because you can never have too many spikes if you’re a Warrior of the Horde.

This series of posts began because I set myself a goal to document new Transmogrification outfits in a more timely fashion. As soon as I create a new outfit, I write it up in a draft post. As the weekend approaches, I start working on taking fashion screenshots, processing them, and updating “Things my [Class] Wears” posts. On Sunday — though not every Sunday — I publish the collection of my recent efforts. Then I begin the next “Sunday on the Promenade” draft post.

Occasionally, I have ideas for themed Transmogrification collections that take several months to completely assemble. Thus, some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of such a themed Transmogrification collection.

If any of you, my dear readers, have kits that you’d like to share, I’d be happy to add you to the show! Just email me your picture(s), along with a list of the items in the outfit. I don’t regularly check my blog email, though, so if you’ve sent me an outfit, please make a comment on the most recent Sunday Mog Show post so that I know to check my blog email for your contribution.

We Fly Together









~*~*~

The Order of the Cloud Serpents have another of my favorite tabards from Pandaria. I love the soft, pastel colors.

Cloud Rider

Grievous Gladiator’s Ironskin Spaulders, Jinxed Hoodoo Skin, Pennyroyal Belt, Clefthoof Britches & Wanderboots, Grips of Slicing Electricity (LFR), Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Staff of Trembling Will
With a Monk, these PvP shoulders were the best choice for this kit. For the other leather-wearing classes, here is an alternate version of the outfit using the Belt of the Silent Path, which has very similar colors to the tabard, and the Mantle of Wicked Revenge.

Serpent Trainer

Wildguard Helm, Jade Epaulets, Iceguard Breastplate & Leggings, Rainbow Girdle, Gauntlets of Purification, Boots of Avoidance, Slavemaster Axe, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard
These lovely pastel plate items were the first things I thought of when I started to think about making Cloud Serpent outfits.

Serpents in the Mists

Champion’s Pauldrons, Formidable Chestpiece, Belt of the Iron Prison (LFR), Tristam Legguards*, Skyhorn Gloves, Boots of Elemental Torment, Misthide Drape, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Wu-Lai, Bladed Fan of the Consorts (LFR), Flamecaller’s Shield
This cloud-like mixture of pale silvers, greys, and blues allows the brighter, yet still subtle, colors of the tabard, cloak, and shield to emerge like a cloud serpent from the mists.

Cloud Spinner

Arachnidian Robes, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Replica Virtuous Gloves + Leywalker Bracers, Slippers of Serenity, Used Bar Rag, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Staff of Athen’a
I hadn’t made an outfit with this coloration of this robe style yet, and it occurred to me that it might have the right sort of colors to coordinate nicely wtih the Cloud Serpent tabard. Well, the aquas do, anyway. I’d forgotten how green the skirt is.

~*~*~

When I first started thinking about making this post, I went to look for the screenshots of the Order of the Cloud Serpents finale that I knew I’d taken when Kamalia did it — and I couldn’t find them! I looked and looked. Then I looked to see if any of my other characters who were Exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpents had screenshots of the finale in their files, and couldn’t find anything there, either. I’d probably thought, oh, I don’t need to screencap this again because I already have screencaps from when Kamalia did it.

So I ran Kaylynda through the Order of the Cloud Serpent rep grind to get some new screenshots of that thrilling finale event. Between the Mists rep-doubling Commendations (which Kamalia got as soon as she could for all the alts to enjoy), being Human, the Darkmoon Carousel buff, and some good luck finding Onyx Eggs, it only took two days.

I loved the finale events for the Mists reputations. They made getting to Exalted a truly exciting occasion. At the same time, however, they made me feel rather bad about running off and never coming back to that faction again (except on occasion to take Mog screenshots) as soon as I got Exalted.

Augh, writing peer-review committee and department chair letters for the interim tenure reviews of the other chemistry faculty who were also new the same year that I was is giving me all kinds of inferiority complex and existential insecurity about my own interim tenure review. I am acutely aware that I have this job because one of my high school friends didn’t get tenure, and I am terrified that I am so lackluster compared to my colleagues that I will meet the same fate.

I also have two exams to write by next Tuesday, so as much as I might like to play as much WoW this long weekend as my baby will let me, I shouldn’t. And then, of course, those exams will need to be graded, and the first piles of lab reports are incoming…

Not that I could go to Argus right now even if I wanted to. I know darn well that Kamalia did the pre-launch event Broken Shore scenario, but she didn’t get the breadcrumb quest to go to Argus on Tuesday. I hypothesize that it’s because she still has the breadcrumb quest for Armies of Legionfall in her log, never turned in from Patch 7.2 (and that she didn’t get the breadcrumb quest for the Whispers of Frightened World scenario for the same reason). Maybe I’d only have to turn in the first Armies of Legionfall quest to get the first Argus quest to open up, but I think I’d want to do at least enough of the Broken Shore to bring Magatha Grimtotem into the fold of the Earthen Ring before I went gallivanting off to Argus. That would be at least one night of gameplay, but with the amount of time I have for WoW right now, it might take two or three nights of play and two or three weeks to have enough nights where I felt like I actually could play that much.

So I might be pretty quiet for awhile until I’m not drowning in work quite so badly.

The first installment of Sunday on the Promenade was one year ago last weekend (the 20th). I’d have made this post then, but RL has been so busy for the past few weeks with family events and getting ready for school to start — an even crazier crunch than usual this year because of moving into our awesome new science building — that I just didn’t have the time to do Mog photoshoots until yesterday (and I didn’t have time or energy to try the Trial of Style, either).

Thank you to everyone who has left such kind comments all year long! ❤

To celebrate this milestone, I've made new outfits for all of the Big Fourteen.

Frostwall Magus

Red Pointy Hat, Mantle of Tirisfal, Crimson Silk Robe, Wild Gladiator’s Cord of Cruelty, Hexweave Gloves (1-640), Infernoweave Boots, Eternally Folded Blade, Socrethar’s Stone
The Horde counterpart to the Lunarfall Arcanist, sort-of. I suppose the Horde Spirit Lodge with its Frostwall Shaman is thematically appropriate for most of the Horde races, but I’d rather have the Alliance Mage Tower for a Blood Elf.

Dalaran Theurgist

Hallowed Pauldrons, Black Mageweave Robe, Wizard’s Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Chelley’s Staff of Dark Mending
The NPC robe resembles the Necrology robe on the top and the Black Mageweave Robe on the bottom. Because the tabard covers much of the top of the robe, the Black Mageweave Robe is the best choice to endeavor to match these NPCs.
If I am remembering correctly, these NPCs not only carried a Priest-like staff, they also had Priest-like abilities.

Dalaran Courier

Headhunter’s shoulders & belt, Darkmoon Vest, Cinderweb Leggings (H), Expedition Gloves, Bonechewer Shredboots, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Rolfsen’s Ripper
Some messages should not be transmitted magically and must still be carried by hand from the sender to the recipient.

Guardian of the Violet Tower

Jade Tiger Shoulders, Glowing Breastplate of Truth, Uktar’s Belt of Chiming Rings, Eldritch Reinforced Legplates, Sunsoul Gauntlets, Treads of the Penitent Man (H), Drape of the Violet Tower, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Bloodmaw Magus-Blade, Protective Barricade of the Light
I like the way this belt interacts with the tabard; the Girdle of Truth looks nice if you’d rather see the whole tabard.
With Uktar’s Belt, the Heroic Burden of Mortality was a little too much for the overall ensemble. With the Girdle of Truth, however, it looks quite nice.

The Sunsoul Gauntlets are the only Paladin-specific item in this kit. The Shattered Hand Gauntlets are a decent alternative for other plate-wearing classes.

Black Eye

Furious Gladiator’s Dreadplate Shoulders, Heroic Armor, The Plaguebringer’s Girdle, Thunderforge Leggings, Sandspire Gloves*, Demonbreaker Crushers, Sentinel’s Winter Cloak, Rimefang’s Claw
A difficulty with Death Knight kits is that because they are so often black, less black, and more black, they tend to begin to look all the same even though the contributing armor pieces may be widely varied in style and source.
This sword model first appeared in a red version carried by the Kirin Tor Battle Mages at Ulduar. I’d love to get my hands on that firey version some day; WTB a gold and purple version of this sword model, too, pls.

Twilight Dragonsworn

Temporal Pauldrons, Truesteel Breastplate (2-655), Earthswell Belt, Elder Tortoiseshell Legplates, High Chief’s Gauntlets & Sabatons, Tempered Vis’kag the Bloodletter
Whenever I’ve tried to make a kit with these pauldrons previously, I’ve always toyed with using these purple gloves and boots, then dismissed them as not fitting the concept I had in mind. Now that all those other ideas have been made, I can finally use them.

Taunka Warrior Princess

Princess Poobah’s Tiara, Replica Spaulders of Heroism, Nether Protector’s Chest, Royal Qiraji Belt, Lofty Legplates, Grips of the Fallen Council (LFR), Mosscrusher Sabatons, Cloak of the Valiant Defender, Ghostly Battle Axe
While updating the image links in the Underpowered Death Knight’s history, I came across a platekini outfit idea for her that I’d called by this name. Due to intervening expansions and the advent of the Appearances library, however, the chestpiece and leggings are all that this (rather nicer looking) kit has in common with the original concept.

Serpents in the Mists

Champion’s Pauldrons, Formidable Chestpiece, Belt of the Iron Prison (LFR), Tristam Legguards*, Skyhorn Gloves, Boots of Elemental Torment, Misthide Drape, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Wu-Lai, Bladed Fan of the Consorts (LFR), Flamecaller’s Shield
This cloud-like mixture of pale silvers, greys, and blues allows the brighter, yet still subtle, colors of the tabard, cloak, and shield to emerge like a cloud serpent from the mists.

Cloud Spinner

Arachnidian Robes, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Replica Virtuous Gloves + Leywalker Bracers, Slippers of Serenity, Used Bar Rag, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Staff of Athen’a
I hadn’t made an outfit with this coloration of this robe style yet, and it occurred to me that it might have the right sort of colors to coordinate nicely wtih the Cloud Serpent tabard. Well, the aquas do, anyway. I’d forgotten how green the skirt is.

Pandaren Homespun

Cyno’s Mantle of Sin, Cat Lover’s Vest, Belt of the Night Sky, Leggings of the Night Sky, Shadowmoon Grips, Footfalls of Memories, Epoch-Mender
These pants are similar to the Homespun Leggings, a quest reward from the Wandering Isle. These NPCs are wearing the robes from that outfit style, which I wish were obtainable in Transmogrification-friendly versions.

The White Master

Warmongering Gladiator’s Ironskin with Meowl’s Mane, Vault Watcher’s Cloak, and Icecore Staff
This PvP recolor is my favorite version of the Hellfire Citadel Monk tier set. I love the whiteness of it, and how that whiteness is gently accentuated by the light blue and beige.

Heart of Thunder

Thunderheart helm shoulders & gloves, Canyon Runner’s Vest, Mighty Girdle, Leggings of the Immortal Night, Naturewarden’s Treads, Wisdom of Dionor, Origin of Nightmares
Though it drops in Naxxramas, this staff has always seemed to me like it was made to go with the Druid Black Temple set. I’m not particularly fond of the torso part of the chestpiece of that set, however, so after a bit of fiddling around with chestpieces and leggings, I settled upon this combination.

Raven’s Sight

Tsanga’s Helm, Poison Protocol Pauldrons (N), Frostwolf Tunic, Replica Wildheart Belt, Kilt of the Night Strider, Fuzzy Gloves + Glowing Wing Bracers (N), Boots of the Forked Road
This Artifact tint was awarded for recovering a Pillar of Creation.
To build this kit, I started with the shoulders. I feel like the chestpiece doesn’t quite fit with the rest of the kit, but I do like the way it displays her tattoos. I’m not quite sure the hat fits, either, but it wanted to be there anyway.

Reaver of the Infinites

Malefactor’s Eyepatch, Rancorbite Spaulders, Scale Brand Breastplate, Battlebound Girdle, Wildwood Wrangler Leggings, Gatesmashing Gauntlets, Treads of the Valiant Struggle, Reaver of the Infinites
I’d been wanting to use this 2H axe. Thinking about hunting the black-scaled Infinite Dragonflight, I chose this tunic, and then the rest of the kit developed from there.

When Argus first appeared in the skies on the 8th, Dalaran became an anxious place. Concerned Citizens clustered around the guards, asking for answers about what was happening. I ran through many of the shops, trying to find as many different quotes from the inhabitants of Dalaran as I could. A few days later, it occurred to me that I hadn’t gone into the First Aid shop yet. This is what I saw:

A few Dalaran Citizens were sitting near the back of the shop; when I clicked on them, they each had a debuff called “Inexplicable Feeling: Not feeling quite right”.

The next week, the 15th, the Concerned Citizens pestering the guards had been joined by Scared Citizens. Some of the Scared Citizens were fearfully running around the streets.

I made rounds of the city to see if the shopkeepers were saying any new and different things; they were. When I visited the First Aid shop, this is what I saw:

The previous week, I hadn’t noticed anything out of the ordinary as I approached the shop, but this week, there were ill-looking people gathering around the entrance:

This week, on the 22nd, some of the residents of Dalaran had become Terrified Citizens — some running around and others too frightened to do anything but cower in corners. I observed more new and different quotes from the shopkeepers; several of them talk about having a rush of customers or getting low on supplies.

The First Aid shop and the street around it had become even more crowded:

I stood around by the First Aid shop for quite a long time while I was writing up this post, and I saw the afflicted citizens say a variety of things:
“I… I don’t feel well.”
“Is it normal to see stars?”
“Please. You have to help us.”
“I feel it coming on again…”
“This has to end. I can’t take much more of this.”
“They say it’s all in your head, but this… this is different. I swear!”

What is going on here?

Even more curious, why haven’t I seen much of anything about this subplot of the pre-Patch 7.3 event on Wowhead yet? There’s a screenshot of the first few afflicted citizens sitting in the First Aid shop in the “Patch 7.3 Foreshadowing” post that Wowhead made on the 8th, but don’t think I’ve seen anything about the continuing developments and buildup of the Patch 7.3 foreshadowing in Dalaran since then. Maybe they just weren’t able to datamine anything about what this developing medical crisis is leading up to?

Or is this perhaps related to the Whispers of a Frightened World? I haven’t done that scenario yet because I haven’t been able to find the breadcrumb for it with either Kamalia or Kaelinda. Perhaps I’m not getting it because I haven’t been to the Broken Shore and done any of the Legionfall stuff yet?

I wonder what will happen in Dalaran next week when Patch 7.3 launches…?
