Effraeti recently presented a beautiful set of spec-specific Transmogrification Template Kits for Draenei Paladins. Her idea inspired me to create a set of spec-specific Transmogrification Template Kits for the Sunwalkers. Because Thunder Bluff and other Tauren settlements are decorated in turquoise and red, I themed my palette around those colors.
Glorious Headdress, Runic Plate Shoulders, Plate of the Shaman King, Thorium Belt, Imperial Plate Leggings, Warbringer’s boots and gloves, Insignia/Elementalist Cloak, Serenity, Saltstone Shield
You may recognize this ensemble from the “Well-Dressed Paladin, Revisited” guest post I made at Manalicious. I wanted to use the Plate of the Shaman King for the Protection chestpiece because it is the chestpiece worn by most Sunwalker NPCs, and this outfit had turned out so well that I didn’t want to try making a new one! The only change I’ve made from the previous version is to add the Insignia Cloak, which matches the cloak that is worn by almost all Sunwalker NPCs. The Embersilk Cloak would also work well. A Golden Filigreed Doublet would add a little more golden color to the ensemble, or the Cerulean Filigreed Doublet could be used to bring in some turquoise.
Crown of Empowered Fate, Glorious Shoulderpads, Refuge Armor, Hyperion Girdle, Judgement (T2) kilt, Area 52 Engineering Gloves, Insignia Cloak, War Mace of Unrequited Love or Lucky Old Sun, Highlord’s Favor
To my eye, the red and gold trim of the Refuge Armor makes it more suited to a Warrior or a Paladin than to a DK. I also like the red and gold Fiery Plate or Hyperion gloves with this set. A Cerulean Filigreed Doublet looks very nice under the breastplate.
Khan’aish Helmet, Liadrin’s (T9) shoulders breastplate and gloves, Bloodfist Belt or Girdle of Unity, Ango’rosh Legguards, Bloodfist Greaves, Cloak of Whispering Shells, Greatsword of the Sunwalker
For the Retribution set, I knew that I wanted to use the Greatsword of the Sunwalker, the 2H weapon from the Tauren version of the SFK Paladin quest, because of its completely unique design. Only one other sword in the game, Cataclysm’s Edge, is even slightly similar. There’s only one really good turquoise set of plate armor, however, the Jade set, and while that is very pretty, it’s not really very Tauren. So I used the turquoise decorations on the sword as an accent color and looked across the color wheel to copper for the main color. Although I like how the turquoise Girdle of Unity ties the sword into the rest of the set, my Tauren Paladin, Karelia, isn’t likely to get into Naxx to farm for it anytime soon, so she will have to make do with the Bloodfist Belt.
Princess Poobah’s Tiara, Grunt’s Shoulders or Pristine Lightforge Spaulders, chest gloves and boots play mix-and-match with the golden Grunt’s set and blue Outrunner’s set, Grunt’s Belt, Golden Scale Leggings (F) or Grunt’s Pants (M), Insignia or Battleforge Cloak, Golden Filigreed Doublet
Transmogrification-friendly mail sets for Sunwalkers under level 40, in colors inspired by the Sunwalker Kodo. I quite agree with Amateur Azerothian that the lower level Sunwalker Kodo actually looks cooler than the higher level Great Sunwalker Kodo.
