Back at the beginning of November, I wrote:
“I’ve fallen into a WoW lull over the past several weeks. I’ve got an unusually light course load at school this semester — but a health condition that has developed, and a medication that I’m taking to help with this condition, have made it so that I just can’t stay up late like I used to. When I’m finished with my evening slate of schoolwork, I more and more frequently just go to bed. If the Emissary reward isn’t 2K gold, or I’m not working on outfits for the next Sunday Mog Show, I don’t have much motivation to stay up late in Azeroth.”
I only had to take the medication that made me extra-sleepy for ten weeks; soon enough I was again staying up until midnight or 1 am in Azeroth after completing my evening schoolwork. The health condition, however, persisted — which was the desired and intended result of the medication — and this past Friday night it resolved with the exquisitely intense experience of the birth of my first, and perhaps only, biological child.

I am the oldest of six children. As far as I know, my mother had all of those children more or less when she wanted to have them. Thus, infertility was not a life-challenge that I expected to have. But a few years went by after BTH and I got married, and I still hadn’t gotten pregnant. About the fifth year of our marriage, I was diagnosed with anovulatory polycystic ovarian syndrome. We attempted a few less-invasive reproductive medicine therapies — this drawing was made as a response to the failure of one of those attempts — before trying in-vitro fertilization in the eighth year of our marriage. It failed; none of our embryos survived the transfer process. After that, we decided to pursue adoption. We adopted our first child shortly before our tenth anniversary; he is now four. We adopted our second child shortly before our twelfth anniversary; he is now two. I was now in my late thirties, and success rates for IVF drop off rapidly with maternal age especially after forty, so we decided to make one more attempt at IVF. Because I’d experienced some complications and needed to have the embryos frozen for later transfer during our first IVF attempt, we planned ahead to initially freeze the embryos and transfer later for the second attempt. Then COVID came along and significantly delayed the timing of the transfers; we weren’t able to start trying transfers until the middle of last summer. The very last embryo from that second IVF cycle was the one that survived the transfer process and became the perfect, beautiful baby boy who is sleeping in his bassinet while I write this post.

Naturally, I haven’t logged on to WoW for a few days now, and while I’ve certainly thought a bit about it here and there, I haven’t really missed it. I’ve been much too busy with much more important things. Although I’ve “done newborn” before with my two adopted children, this time around is a whole new experience because this time, I’m doing it with breastfeeding and postpartum body and brain — and with two other young children whose needs for affection and attention also have to be managed and fulfilled. As Baby and I adjust to each other, as the two older children get adjusted to the new state of our household, I’ll have more ability to come back to Azeroth — and, to be honest, I’ll want to come back to Azeroth as a stress relief/relaxation activity! But I also still have a mountain of prep to do to get my classes ready for Fall Semester. So I’ll have to severely limit my time in Azeroth, and I cannot do “all the things” that I’d been doing anymore. I’ll have to select one or two objectives to accomplish with one character in each play session and just be okay with letting the others not progress.

I will probably log on for a little bit tomorrow, though, even if it’s just long enough to find out if Kaelinda finally managed to get the Robes of the Cursed Commando from the Great Vault from doing LFR last Wednesday, but I probably won’t do much else — certainly not running the Maw with three level 60 characters!

Baby is still asleep! If I go straight to bed as soon as I hit “Publish”, how much sleep will I manage to get before he wakes up hungry…?

I had fun putting this set of outfits together. Enjoy!

Champion of Purity





Crown of the Champion, Waylight Shoulderpads, Gossamer Robe, Eelskin Flippers, Drape of Twisted Loyalties, Whizblast Walking Stick
These gold and white shoulders from Bastion leveling were calling out to be used in combination with one of the Classic white robes.

Effervescent Night


Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Wrathful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Robe of Effervescent Light, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Tempest’s Touch, Slippers of the Twilight Prophet, Night Courtier’s Bulb, Viridium Staff of Alacrity
The key concept of this ensemble is the combination of the Night Fae backpiece, the robe, and the shoulders. It is also an interation of Kaohana’s outfit #75.

Shadowfrost



Crown of Eternal Winter, Frostwind Mantle, Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Silk Robe, Deckhand’s Rope Belt (N), Primal Combatant’s Gloves of Prowess, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Wild Combatant’s Energy Staff
I’d had the notion of pairing these shoulders with this robe, and then I had to figure out what else would look good with it. The crown surprised me a bit; I do rather like how it looks when it’s not in the creepy phase of its animation.

Jungle Witch


Cobra Priest’s Headdress, Charlotte’s Chastizing Pauldrons, Fen Keeper Robe*, Heavy Woolen Gloves, Ikeyen’s Boots, Fashionable Undershirt, Plundered Hozen Chieftain’s Stave
I am quite fond of these Northrend shoulders; this is the first of a handful of dark blue and green robes that they coordinate nicely with.

Although the Wild Combatant’s Battle Staff also looks great with this ensemble, I really loved the pop of contrasting orange from the Plundered Hozen Chieftain’s Stave.

Young Maiden


Journeyman’s Robe, Omnicast Boots, Wound Dressing, Expeditionary Staff
When Kaelyla was very young, her hair was lighter in color; it darkened rapidly during her early adulthood.
This appearance concept is mostly an excuse to use this Blood Elf hair color, which is new in Shadowlands, and this robe, which I’ve been wanting to make an outfit with for awhile.

~*~*~

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.

I’m still trundling along. Kaelyla has upgraded her Travel Network to Stage 2. Kaelinda is still trying for the robe version of the Castle Nathria chestpiece from either the Stone Legion Generals or the Great Vault and not getting it. I’ve basically stopped doing Callings with Kaelinda or Kaurinka unless they are really convenient to do; Kaelyla has enough Renown now that I will ignore a Calling with her, too, if it doesn’t reward either Renown or Wild Hunt rep.
At some point, I decided that I’d rather work on leveling Kalaneia and Keliora than work on the Night Fae campaign with Kaurinka. Kalaneia has finished Bastion, but hasn’t yet moved on to Maldraxxus. Keliora is still working her way through Bastion; I’ve been taking breaks from the main storyline to do the side quests with her. They are both level 54.

Sin’Venthyr II


Crown of the Champion, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt & Slippers, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Vestments, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Mantle of Crimson Blades, House Renathal Ceremonial Dagger + Red Crane Scepter
Another mix-and-match of the Sin’dorei Heritage and Venthyr Renown sets.
The dimensional pieces on the sleeves of the robe took layering priority even over the bulky, showy design of the Sin’dorei gauntlets, so I had to choose some different gloves.
Although the crane off-hand is a Pandaria item, its colors are very Sin’dorei, and its rather phoenix-like shape is also appropriate for the Sin’dorei.

Stars’ Grace



Vestia’s Pauldrons of Inner Grace, Ren’dorei Mantle & Belt, Bonecaster’s Sarong, Gloves of Penitence, Willow Boots, Periwinkle Cloak, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Starshard Edge + Decanter of Distilled Shadows
Playing around with more shoulders that look fabulous with the void wings from the Ren’dorei Heritage Armor chestpiece.
I love how the lavender shirt coordinates with the shoulders and the kilt — but I also rather like how this particular kit looks without the shirt.

Icy Ebon Blades


Night Commander’s Pauldrons, Primal Gladiator’s Plate Breastplate & Legplates, Bogslayer Belt, Lucidity Handwraps, Treads of the Common Man, Sentinel’s Winter Cloak, Tabard of the Ebon Blade, Icy Ebon Blade
Kandrista was tired of her blue hair clashing with the red and gold of the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor, and she didn’t have an Ebon Blade kit yet.

42) Effervescent Night


Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Wrathful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Robe of Effervescent Light, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Tempest’s Touch, Slippers of the Twilight Prophet, Night Courtier’s Bulb, Viridium Staff of Alacrity
The key concept of this ensemble is the combination of the Night Fae backpiece, the robe, and the shoulders. It is also an interation of Kaohana’s outfit #75.

41) Stars’ Grace



Vestia’s Pauldrons of Inner Grace, Ren’dorei Mantle & Belt, Bonecaster’s Sarong, Gloves of Penitence, Willow Boots, Periwinkle Cloak, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Starshard Edge + Decanter of Distilled Shadows
Playing around with more shoulders that look fabulous with the void wings from the Ren’dorei Heritage Armor chestpiece.
I love how the lavender shirt coordinates with the shoulders and the kilt — but I also rather like how this particular kit looks without the shirt.

Since dinging 60 last weekend, Kaelyla has been “getting sweaty”, as Redbeard would say, and has collected enough Anima to activate all four of her Sanctum Features at stage 1, thus earning herself an extra Anima token from WQs. I’ve felt like that investment is definitely worth it. The higher levels, though — not so much, and I won’t be going for them. Now it’s time to let her sit back for awhile and get to work on finishing leveling Kalaneia and Keliora.

Starlit Boughs



Phantasmal Headdress, Pauldrons of Malorne, Clefthoof Hidemantle, Supple Waistguard (stage 2), Bladedancer’s Pantaloons, Reaping Gloves of Aleifir, Cenarion Boots, Starshard Edge, Growthshaper Branch, Night Courtier’s Branches
This Night Fae backpiece, which can be obtained at Honored with Marasmius, is the most unique among the Night Fae backpieces because it is the only one in this style of the seven readily available from vendors. Between them, the Wild Hunt, Marasmius, Night Fae Renown, and Court of Night sell three colors of the backpack and three colors of the bulb with butterflies, leaving only the fourth color of those styles to be obtained from other activities. For this style, it is reversed: only one color is available from a vendor, and the other three must be obtained from other activities.

Under Eternal Starlight



Blood-Cursed Shoulderpads, Ren’dorei Mantle & Gloves, Demonic Gladiator’s Silk Cord, Eternal Sarong, Willow Boots, Demonic Gladiator’s Silken Shawl, Stylish Blue Shirt, Apostle of Argus/Inkgill Blade + Ephial’s Grimoire
Kaelyla had been wearing her “Full of Stars” outfit for so long by the time she finally got through all of the Ardenweald main story quests that have nifty on-quest visuals — and dinged level 60 — that she was quite anxious for a change. This combo of shoulders, Ren’dorei chestpiece, and kilt was what she’d been wanting to wear next. Figuring out the rest of the kit, however, took a bit of iteration.

Sin’Venthyr



Sin’dorei Helm & Tunic, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Mantle Leggings & Slippers, Corpse-Stitcher’s Cord, Primal Combatant’s Gloves of Prowess, Shadowfeather Shawl, Gilded Sineater’s Staff
A first go at mashing up the Heritage of the Sin’dorei and Venthyr Renown armor sets.
My Blood Elf Paladin is currently wearing this hat with this hairstyle, and they just suit each other so well. Using this hairstyle was too much of a change for Kaelinda, however. It works for Kaelydia, though — maybe because she has golden eyes, like the Paladin?
I thought I was done with Venthyr Anima collectibles, but apparently I needed just one more — the Renown recolor of the staff — and I had the Anima on hand, so I got it.

This weekend, I finished leveling Kaelyla. By the time she’d seen the vision of Ysera’s death and done the next two quests, she was 98% through level 59. At that point, I took her to Oribos and activated Threads of Fate. After completing next couple of quests to talk to Lady Moonberry, she was so close to dinging that I just went and did a little gathering to push it over instead of working on the “Aiding Ardenweald” fill-the-bar quest. I got her through Chapter 1 of the Night Fae campaign; now she’s gathering Renown, Souls, and Anima and waiting for Patch 9.1 to arrive so that she can not have to go to Torghast.

One reason I chose the Night Fae for Kaelyla — or Kaelyla for the Night Fae — is because of the aesthetic similarities I saw between the Void Elves and Ardenweald. I created her “Full of Stars” outfit (#37) to highlight those aesthetic harmonies —

— and specifically to coordinate with the animacone backpack that is an on-quest visual effect for the quest “Tending to Wildseeds” at the Tranquil Pools adjacent to Tirna Vaal.

There are a number of other nifty on-quest visual effects during the Ardenweald main storyline, so I ended up taking many, many screenshots of this outfit. I’ve put the ones from “Tending to Wildseeds” in the outfit listing on the appropriate “Things My Void Elf Mage Wears” page. To keep that page from getting overcrowded, I’ve gathered the rest of my favorite pictures of this outfit in this gallery — click through the cut to see them all!

I generally don’t like to show multiple outfits for the same alt in a single installment of the Sunday Mog Show. This interval was rather exceptional. I made an RP outfit for my Venthyr Mage, but didn’t keep it around for very long. So I changed her clothes. Then before this post could go to press, she’d finished acquiring the Renown recolor of her Covenant Armor kit and didn’t want to wait until the next Sunday Mog Show to preen in it. So the Venthyr Mage gets a highly unusual three outfits in the same Sunday Mog Show.

Penitent’s Pilgrimage






Pilgrim’s Cover, Fireworm Robes, Black Mageweave Gloves + Wraithcloth Bindings, Windshaper Treads, Acolyte’s Shirt, Kael’s Dark Sinstone Chain, Hardened Root Staff*
Kaelinda feels no need to lug around a Sinstone.
Kaelydia, however, still keenly feels guilt for the actions of the Sin’dorei in Outland because she went to Outland with Prince Kael’thas and participated in some of his operations there prior to defecting to Shattrath City with Seer Voren’thal and the Scryers.
With the hood covering her hair, this character is primarily recognizable as Kaelydia by her golden eyes.
This outfit is all about the RP, which is why I took so many pictures of it — but I quickly discovered that in addition to not being particularly fond of the Sinstone as a static design, I also really don’t like how it bounces and jostles and wobbles and whips the loose end of the chain all over while she is moving. In fact, I disliked the movement of the Sinstone so much that this outfit only lasted for a few days; as soon as I’d finished taking the screenshots for this posting, I went and changed to a new outfit.

Countess of Blades


Resplendent Circlet, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Mantle/Hidden Shoulder, Ferocious Gladiator’s Silk Robe, Illidari Bindings, Kavan’s Forsaken Treads, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6)/Mantle of Crimson Blades, Ebonchill (default, fourth tint)
There were two combinations of shoulders and cloak that looked simply amazing with this robe. Although I’ve included them both in this listing, the Mantle of Crimson Blades variation is what I ran around in.

Crimson Soulbreaker



Soulbreaker’s Crimson Vestments with Resplendent Circlet and Twisted Visage
The Renown tint of the Venthyr Covenant armor set.
Kaelinda farmed Anima pretty intensively to collect this set and the two Venthyr Renown backpieces. Those were all the Anima collectibles she wanted, though, so now she can relax and let some of my other characters take the spotlight for awhile.
I chose Venthyr for Kaelinda partly because I thought that the red & gold variation of that Covenant’s armor set would be fun to play mix-and-match with the Heritage of the Sin’dorei set, so expect outfits along those lines to be showing up sometime soon!

Aspiring to Ascension





Bloodskin Mantle, Aurora Armor, Cleansed Shadow Council Belt, Pure Aspirant’s Leggings, Bracers of Safe Keeping, Fungal Resistant Slippers, Tabard of the Ascended, Quarterstaff of Discordant Ethic
This outfit is very loosely inspired by the garb of the Kyrian Aspirants.
To show a somewhat more Kyrian look, Kaelyla temporarily changed her skin to a darker blue and her hair to a brighter blue and tried on this kit in the Dressing Room.
One of the healing spec Priest spells used to be accompanied by a visual of blue-white wings. Perhaps it was a Glyphed effect of that spell? I used it as an accessory in some of Kaohana’s Mog pictures. I don’t remember which spell it was, though, and I can’t quite figure it out, for either Discipline or Holy. I guess it’s been changed. 😦

Brokers’ Business Buddy



Corpsehide set with Empyrial Deep Crown and Honortoll Spear
This handsome coloration of the leather second-tier crafted/World Quests & Dungeons set comes, somewhat surprisingly, from Maldraxxus.
The stripes on the pants and the styling of the shoulders and belt reminded me of the Brokers, though it’s not anywhere near as exact a match as the cloth set is for the Attendants.

Job’s Done

I decided I might as well get it over with, so off Kaelinda went to Torghast. I did the first 6 floors of the Twisting Corridors three times in a row, then watched 20 minutes of cinematics and conversations between the faction leaders in Oribos, and now I’ll be ready to skip into the Patch 9.1 Campaign. With the content of these questlines being rather significant lore moments, not to mention required to unlock the next stage of the story, I was expecting their completion to be signposted by Achievements and was rather disappointed that they weren’t.
The cinematics were really very good, and I’m glad now that I’ve seen them for myself, so that I know the whole story — not just the key bits that were summarized in the beginning of the Patch 9.1 trailer cinematic.
~*~*~
So now that I’ve done this, I’m thinking maybe I want to hold off on doing Covenant campaigns with Kaelyla and Keliora and Kalaneia until Patch 9.1 drops and they can all skip Chapter 2. Kaurinka has already done Chapter 2 of the Night Fae campaign and is getting kind of tired of waiting to get started on the rest of it, so I’m thinking I’ll abandon my plan of running Kaurinka and Kaelyla through it in parallel and just get going with Kaurinka. If I can get Kaurinka through the Night Fae campaign and get the other three up to level 60 before Patch 9.1 arrives, that’ll be good enough. I’ll still want to do the other three 9.0 Covenant campaigns before I get into the 9.1 campaign itself, though.

Kaelinda finished acquiring the Renown recolor of her Covenant armor set this week. She doesn’t want any more of the Venthyr Anima collectibles, so she’s Done. She doesn’t need to clear the map of all the Anima WQs she’s willing to do anymore. She can rest and relax and be satisfied with 1000 Anima per week — half of it just from rescuing 20 souls from the Maw — until I’ve finished the other three Covenant campaigns and am ready to start playing the Ember Court.
I’ve been farming Anima so intensively with her for the past however many weeks that it’s being a bit hard to resist wanting to take her out to clear those Anima WQs, though…

Meanwhile, I’d given Kaurinka the task of acquiring all of the Night Fae backpieces that are available from various vendors. There are seven in all: one from the Wild Hunt, two from Marasmius, two from Renown, and two from the Court of Night. I’ve been slowly ramping up her Anima farming, and she’s now got five of the seven; she just needs the two from the Court of Night. When she’s got those, she’ll start saving up the 25K Anima to get the Winterborn recolor of her Covenant armor set from the Court of Night; the Renown recolor is my least favorite version of that set, whereas the Winterborn recolor might be my most favorite. I’d also eventually like to get the Renown recolors of the staff and harp, but perhaps Kaelyla can work on acquiring those. Anyhow, now that Kaelinda is Done, Kaurinka will have first dibs on going out to do WQs each day, and her Anima farming will go faster.

Well, I guess Kaelinda can’t completely take a break. She’ll want to keep running the Blood From Stone wing of Castle Nathria LFR until either the Stone Generals themselves or the Great Vault cough up the robe version of the chestpiece. And she does still have to go to Torghast a few more times to get through the questchains that will be required to unlock the Patch 9.1 content. At least once she’s done that, the rest of the crew will be able to skip that stuff!
