Effraeti always has such fun Transmogrification ideas! Recently, she challenged JD Kenada to create something appropriate for a high-society Worgen:
The Gilneans fled their home with little more than the clothes on their back. Everything that was high-society Gilnean fashion was lost except a few pairs of dress robes. Mr. Amateur, I challenge you to create an outfit worthy of an aristocratic Worgen.
The only stipulation is it must be moggable – no Tuxedo. 😉
I figured that making an aristocratic cloth outfit would be pretty easy, so I decided to try making High-Society Gilnean Transmogrification Template Kits for all four armor types.
My High-Society Gilnean Cloth and Gilnean Plate TTKs are inspired by the colors and patterns of the apparel worn by Gilneas Citizens and by the sadly never-implemented Embroidered Shirts.
High-Society Gilnean Cloth
Chief Architect’s Monocle, Duskhallow Mantle, Shadow Council Tunic, Black Belt of Knowledge, Legwraps of the Master Conjurer, Dryad’s Wrist Bindings + Ameth’Aran Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Gray Hair Cloak
High-Society Gilnean Plate
Replica Helm of Valor, Noble Plate Pauldrons, Sunblessed Breastplate, Stormforged Belt, Exalted Legplates, Gauntlets of Enforcement, Ancient Skeletal Boots, Cloak of War, Ebon Filigreed Doublet
The Gilneas City Guards are wearing the leveling mail set obtained by questing in Vashj’ir and Deepholm, minus the shoulders.
I swapped out a few of the pieces for some more interesting items to create this Gilnean Mail TTK.
High-Society Gilnean Mail
Glimmering Mail Coif, Pauldrons of the Promise, Chestguard of the Naz’jar, Belt of Deathly Dominion, Legguards of Revelation, Swamp Gas Gauntlets, Atoll Treaders, Mantle of Gilneas, Stormwind Doublet
(the remaining pieces of the 80-85 leveling set are the Vapor-Proof Headcover, Scavenged Stormwind Spaulders, Gorgonian Belt, and Starfish Gauntlets)
For the leather set, I looked for items with filigreed patterns, and tried to compile an overall appearance that I thought a young Gilnean socialite might find dashing.
High-Society Gilnean Leather
Clever Hat, Bonechewer Shoulderguards, Don Rodrigo’s Poncho, Girdle of Lenience, Retainer’s Leggings, Blacksting Gloves, Fel Leather Boots, Crimson Silk Cloak, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt
I also made versions of the cloth and leather ensembles with skirts for those who desire to be more lady-like.
Kymberlea and her husband, Bertram, were upper-middle-class craftsmen — she an Enchanter and he a Jeweler — in Gilneas City before the crisis. Although they recognized and appreciated the honor of the Night Elves’ hospitality, Darnassus was no place to raise their four Human children, so they went to Stormwind with King Greymane’s ship. Their struggle to eke out a living in that competitive (and prejudiced) market is what ultimately caused Kym to seek additional work in the form of adventuring. Bertie did not contract the Curse himself, so it is his hypothetical Worgen form that is shown.
