A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Tauren Priest. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).
Crown of the Fire Festival, Pauldrons of Sufferance, Mooncloth Robe, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Wristguards of Subterranean Moss, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Communal Staff
I finally got around to acquiring these beautiful bracers! They’re a lookalike of the original T3 Priest bracers — and probably the only item out of that set that I will ever acquire, because I don’t have the gold-making chops to compete for the Priest T3 items when they show up on the Black Market Auction House.
The other inspiration point for this kit was that after having used the more Shadowy-toned version of the Communal staff, I wanted to use the more Holy-toned version for awhile.
As a whole, this outfit is a very classical Priest look; races that wear shoes will probably want the Sage’s boots.
54) Whispering Winds
Crown of the Fire Festival, Mantle of Time, Whisperwind Robes, Communal Sash, Safeguard Gloves, Communal Stave
This outfit is the white/beige version of the cloth Hour of Twilight dungeon set from late Cataclysm. I considered using the Cowl of Benevolence with this outfit because its colors coordinate very nicely… but dangit, I like to see my characters’ faces.
The Communal pieces are Priest-only items from the Garrison Salvage Yard (or making a Class Trial character). I thought about using Telubis’ Binding of Patience for the belt, but it clips rather badly on the Tauren model. Simply hiding the belt would also work just fine — the set belt matches the belt area on the robe. There are a number of nice alternatives for the staff.
53) Grimtotem Shadowtwister
Mantle of the Tribunal, Highborne Padded Armor, Ranger’s Sash, Colorful Kilt, Vonica’s Gauntlets, Staff of the Four Golden Coins/Tarnished Gutgore Ripper + Aboriginal Rod
This outfit for the ex-Grimtotem Shadow Priest Kazithra is inspired by that of the Grimtotem Geomancers, who are wearing the same chestpiece with the leather Mystic Sarong.
The Aboriginal Rod is one of a small selection of off-hand items that look like staves, thus allowing a caster to emulate Gandalf’s sword/dagger + staff combat mode.
After Alonsus Faol initially presented to Kaohana the three Artifact weapon choices, she made an agreement with Kazithra that the older woman would be the one to collect the Shadow Artifact.
52) Netherlight Sun Priest
Whisperwind Spaulders, Spelltwister’s Grand Robe, Sash of Mortal Desire, Brewer’s Gloves*, Ogre Mage Staff
The Tauren Sun Priests at the Netherlight Temple conclave are wearing the Ulduar Druid tier robe & gloves. This works well from a lore perspective because the Tauren priesthood is a very recent offshoot of Tauren druidism, but it doesn’t work so well for Transmogrification. This Mists crafted robe seemed to me to be the most similar aesthetic in cloth; its colors recall the Phaelia’s Vestments of the Sprouting Seed recolor of the Valorous Nightsong robe.
51) Kamaei’s Noble Heritage
Firewool Shoulderpads, Noblewoman’s Finery, Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Bracers of the Black Dream
I was playing around with ideas for other outfits to make using this skirt, and this combination caught my fancy.
50) Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt
Lightning Infused Mantle, Arachnidian Armor, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Runed Spell-Cuffs, Captain Sanders’ Shirt
Kamaei’s Cerulean Skirt and the Lightning Infused Mantle are the only pieces of this lovely recolor of the classic Vanilla “Devout” set. I came up with the core concept for this outfit — combining this kilt & shoulders with this chestpiece — as a “Warlock Fashion Disaster” about four and a half years ago.
It is a delightful coincidence that this outfit coordinates so perfectly with the default appearance of Light’s Wrath!
49) Hallows Chamberlain
Duskhallow Mantle, Consortium Combatant’s Robes, Black Belt of Knowledge, Silver-Thread Gloves, Starrgo’s Walking Stick
It’s really only the orange and black color combination that makes this outfit sort of Hallow’s End-ish. This robe style also comes in red, green, blue, and purple (I wish that it came in yellow and pink, too!), and these accessories (except the staff) would look just as good with any of the other colors.
48) Forbidden Knowledge
Shoulderpads of Twisted Fate (LFR), Fel-Infused Hauberk & Cinch, Wandering Healer’s Kilt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Terokk’s Shadowstaff
I like the cloth Demon Invasions tunic and belt, but I needed some different shoulders — to my eye, the set shoulder model just doesn’t look good on Tauren. I’d been wanting to use these T14 Mage-lookalike shoulders in a kit for my Priest, and the colors are perfect! I also wanted a skirt instead of trousers, and of the options I had avaliable, this was what I liked best.
47) Queen of Sheba
Tenderheart Shoulders, Robes of the Battleguard, Sash of Mortal Desire, Darkweave Breeches, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Glowing Magical Bracelets, Rich Purple Shirt, Telmor Crystal Staff
Another variation on the bright robe against a dark background theme. With the option to hide shoulders having become available in Patch 7.0, I tried hiding the shoulders for this kit — but it just looked better to me with these shoulders than with no shoulders.
46) Miss Starshine
Starfire Tiara*, Ternary Mantle, Blue Linen Vest, Astralaan Belt, Crimson Silk Pantaloons, Rotting Handwraps + Sage’s Bracers, Buccaneer’s Boots, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Wand of Arcane Potency, Regal Star
This hat, alas, is no longer available, having disappeared when Warlord Zaela took over Upper Blackrock Spire. Perhaps it might show up on the Black Market Auction House eventually? I didn’t spend all that time farming for it before Warlords launched to not ever use it, though, and stars are always in style for summer celebrations.
45) Misty Morning
Heroes’ Crown of Faith, Rebirth Spaulders, Fireflash Robes, Repurposed Twilight Girdle, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Splintering Greatstaff
I discovered the core concept of this kit, the shoulders + robe combination, when I was designing an outfit to go with the Warlords-crafted mace & off-hand book as part of the original Savage Blood Fashion Parade. When I got around to actually making the kit though, I decided to use this staff instead of the Warlords-crafted weapons.
44) Sumptuous Ceremony
Elementalist Skullcap, Duskhallow Mantle, Sumptuous Robes, Contender’s Satin Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Arakkoa Divining Rod, Shadowtome (1-630)
That the Duskhallow Mantle was the perfect set of shoulders to wear with this robe was immediately obvious. The rest of the kit took a bit of trial and error. It does look fantastic with the Shado-Pan hat, but pairing anything red and black with that particular hat is finally starting to feel cliche to me.
Only chestpiece, leggings, and helm pieces exist for this coloration of the Draenor-crafted armor. The primary use of the patterns for these items, which are not upgradable, is leveling the crafting skill itself. I like this dark coloration of this robe style better than the dark coloration of the stage 3 Hexweave robe, though.
43) Mystical Dragons
Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle (Priest only), Hexweave Robe (2-655), Abandoned Zandalari Firecord (LFR), Replica Virtuous Gloves, Ice Cream Churner
I love the soft colors of this version of the robe — it’s definitely my favorite of the three. It also makes a great combination with these fun crafted shoulders from Mists.
Savage Blood required: 15
42) Hex’d Solace
Pauldrons of the Solace-Giver, Hexweave Robe Belt & Cloak (1-640), Black Mageweave Gloves, Staff of Athen’a
I picked up these shoulders while farming Karazhan for something else. I almost just vendored them, as I’m not all that fond of the set they actually belong to. The colors reminded me of the stage 1 Hexweave items, though, and when I tried the combination, I liked it.
Savage Blood required: 0
41) Touch of Ruby
Rhinestone Sunglasses, Aurora Mantle, Mankrik’s Old Wedding Garments, Silver-Thread Sash, Stoneweaver Leggings, Widow’s Clutches + Bands of Indwelling, Boots of the Incorrupt, Thousand Bandage Drape, Staff of Divine Infusion
Sometime during the first half of 2015, I found a pair of Rhinestone Sunglasses on the AH for the surprisingly reasonable price of 500 gold.
I’m very happy with how this kit turned out. It’s definitely worth the months I spent farming Karazhan while Shade of Aran kept dropping the boots that match the T4 Warlock set instead of these boots that match the T4 Priest set…
I’m not sure how well this kit would work for races that wear normal shoes, though, as the foot part of these boots is a somewhat bluer purple than even the darkest magenta tones of the cloak.
We all know that the Exodar is a disco (right?), but Shu’halo are not exactly welcome there, so I boogied down in the Shattrath Residential District instead.
Greenweave Mantle Leggings Gloves & Cloak, Ivycloth Tunic, Willow Belt & Boots, Green Linen Bracers, Lesser Mystic Wand, Simple Branch
This off-hand is the same model as many low level wands, thus enabling a character to appear as if they are dual-wielding wands.
Once upon a time, the Hallowed Helm was introduced as a cloth item so that everyone could wear it. Nowadays, I think that it really ought to be upgraded to a Cosmetic item so that everyone can Mog it. Using a Weighted Jack-o’-Lantern gives the same effect, albeit only temporarily.
The alt character Kazithra didn’t last much longer after I made this outfit, however, as I lost any interest I might have had in playing Shadow after the changes to the class fantasy for the spec for Legion were outlined and the Artifact weapon and new talents for the class began to be described.
When I later decided to “resurrect” Kazithra to pick up the Shadow Artifact so that I could have a complete collection of all the Artifact weapons, I simply used the Barbershop to temporarily change Kaohana’s appearance to a “Kazithra” alter-ego.
39) Voodoo Incense
Nayeli Hood, Mantle of the Exorcist (LFR), Orunai Robe, Hexweave Belt (1-640), Blubber-Stained Grips, Sen’jin Doublet, Voodoo Hex-Staff
So I thought to myself, as long as I’m still on Draenor, I might as well go ahead and try to make kits for all three colors of this Draenor robe. I’m not all that fond of the style, so I’ll doubt that I’ll use it again once Warlords is over. As I was looking for items already in my inventory to wear with it, these similarly colored items appealed to me. Despite the overall appearance being an odd conglomeration of Pandaren and Troll influences, I rather like it. I’ll grant, though, that it does look a little less silly without the hat.
Helm of Lupine Cunning, Mantisweave Mantle, Anchorite Robe & Handwraps, Councillor’s Sash, Neophyte’s Shirt, Iron Horde Ritual Staff
I wanted to make this kit with the blue-grey version of the robe so that I could call it the “Frostwolf Wolf-Whisperer”. The warm tones of the helm, shoulders, and shirt, however, coordinate much better with the dusty green version of the robe.
37) Frostwolf Mystic
Stonecloth Epaulets, Frostwolf Wind-talker robe & belt, Gloves of the Infernal Nocturnal, Wound Dressing, Umbranse’s Staff
This kit is sort of like an updated version of one of Kaohana’s earliest outfits, which used the similarly skimpy Mystic’s Robe.
This Warlords robe style puts cool little tattoos on the shoulders that are plain to see when the towel-roll shoulderpiece that goes with the set is worn.
Unfortunately, that shoulder armor also clips quite severely with the bust of any of the female models, making other shoulder models much more attractive.
36) Horde Wizard
Exquisite Sunderseer Mantle, Apothecary’s Robe, Apothecary’s Waistband, Ritual Gloves, Renzithen’s Dusty Cloak, Staff of the Sun
My Horde clothies all go through a stage between about level 15 and level 25 where they’re wearing more or less this same kit; the key items are quest rewards from Tranquillien, and I like these items so much that all my clothie alts have to go get them.
This is Kazithra, a relatively short-lived alt resulting from a brief flirtation with the idea of playing a Tauren Shadow Priest. I’d rolled secondary characters of all the other Tauren classes, so I felt like I ought to have a secondary Priest, too — and I can’t bring myself to have two characters of the same race, class, and spec. So, she had to be Shadow. I don’t really think that “Tauren” and “Shadow Priest” really go together very well, but I thought that shadow orbs sure looked cool, and that the glyphed version of Shadowform looked cool. I could imagine a Grimtotem Tauren choosing to walk in the Shadow; Kazithra is Kregga’s mother. Like her daughter, she chose to swear loyalty to Baine Bloodhoof after Magatha’s insurrection, and now she goes about dishing out shadow-flavored punishment on her former tribespeople.
The tabard in these pictures is a zone buff from the Horde questline in Stonetalon Mountains. I got about a third of the way through that questline with Kazithra, then never managed to get around to finishing it. Perhaps I should try to play through it with my Orc Mage one of these years…
35) Waterfall Cricket
Greenweave Mantle, Waterfall Robe, Councillor’s Sash, Replica Virtuous Gloves, Rejuvenating Scepter, Purehearted Cricket Cage
One of my goals during Mists of Pandaria was to heal in LFR with a character of every healing class. I achieved that goal, with a healer of each class who completed at least Terrace of Endless Spring from T14, all of Throne of Thunder, and Siege of Orgrimmar through the Sha of Pride. The very charming Purehearted Cricket Cage drops from the second boss in the Vale of Eternal Sorrows opening wing of the Siege of Orgrimmar.
This Kun-Lai Summit quest reward robe matches the tailored Windwool set, which has a tunic chestpiece instead of a robe.
34) Duskwoven Visions
Duskwoven Turban, Lightning Infused Mantle, Coldtouch Phantom Wraps, Contender’s Satin Belt, Bolt-Burster Grips, Liuyang’s Lovely Longstaff
The soft, misty greys and aqua-greens of the Duskwoven robe & turban have always seemed to me to be particularly appropriate for a Priest, somehow. A Mage could try the same accessories with the soft violet Robe of the Magi.
33) Ternion Phantom
Cowl of the Ternion Glory (LFR), Shoulderpads of Pulsing Protection, Coldtouch Phantom Wraps, Beach Party Thong, Bolt-Burster Grips, Umbranse’s Staff
My primary motivation for collecting the Priest T16 LFR set was to be able to mix-and-match it with this lovely robe from Stratholme (Service Gate entrance). The Duskwoven robe is almost identical, except that it has elbow-length sleeves. The T16 belt itself was a little too much of the dark bronze color for my taste; the softly metallic tones of this belt harmonize with the metal trim on the shoulders without overpowering the robe.
32) Ternion Glory
Vestments of the Ternion Glory (LFR, mixture of actual tier and lookalike items), Umbranse’s Staff
I like how this helm looks on Tauren (and Worgen) better than the way it looks on all other races. The cap of swept back feathers seems entirely appropriate for the native american pastiche aesthetic of the Tauren.
31) Silk Master
Watcher’s Cowl, Lightning Infused Mantle, Arachnidean tunic belt pants & gloves, Modest Sandals, Phalanx Cloak, Amber Filigreed Doublet, Staff of the Earthmother
Arachnids and Bombyx mori, the masters of silk production.
I chose these shoes because they appear as invisiboots on my Tauren. Races that wear shoes should consider the Arachnidean boots, Slippers of Serenity, or, if Alliance, Kurkenstoks.
30) Turquoise ‘n’ Tangerine
Watcher’s Cowl, Lightning Infused Mantle, Robes of the Guardian Saint, Arachnidian Girdle & Legguards, Serpent Gloves, Phalanx Cloak, Amber Filigreed Shirt, Staff of the Earthmother
This kit is an iteration upon a concept I first imagined as a Warlock fashion disaster. I had the notion of making an outfit that was reasonably well-coordinated but too clashingly colored to consider seriously… and then I decided that I liked it well enough that I did really want to make it, after all.
If this were an SWTOR outfit, Njessi would probably classify it as a “Terrible Dye” fail. 😛
By swapping out the cowl for the Jewel of the Firelord, this outfit becomes highly appropriate for the Midsummer Fire Festival.
29) Guardian Saint
Heroes’ Crown of Faith, Lightning Infused Mantle, Robes of the Guardian Saint, Contender’s Satin Belt, Thornweaver Leggings, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Bindings of Yearning, Phalanx Cloak, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Staff of Athen’a
This is a very conventional set of accessories to use with this robe; the Runed Spell-Cuffs would be typical alternate bracers. I wanted to make the “standard” outfit first, though, before I did something more unusual…
28) Queen Bee
Don Rigoberto’s Lost Hat, Duskhallow Mantle, Robes of the Battleguard, Bloodeye Belt, Coven Britches, Black Mageweave Gloves + Bracers of the Black Dream, Shivering Healer’s Cloak, Stylish Black Shirt, Bling Cane
I originally thought of doing this bright-against-black concept with the fuschia version of this robe. I had better accessories already on hand to do it with the yellow one, however. Perhaps I will eventually do something similar to this with the fuschia robe with my Warlock.
27) I Dream of Djinnie
Cowl of Whistling Winds, Woundsealer Spaulders, Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Nayeli belt pants & bracers, Replica Virtuous Gloves, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Staff of the Redeemer
This set built itself around the similarity in color between this robe and the jewels decorating the Nayeli items. The Nayeli shoulders are so wide, however, that I prefer these similarly-colored Cataclysm shoulders, for Tauren at least.
If your character wears shoes, try the Widow’s Clutches and Ruby Slippers with this kit.
I really like the balance between the two colors produced by including the shirt and trousers, but if you are comfortable showing more skin, feel free to consider the shirt optional and use a more revealing pair of leggings.
26) Tiller with Staff
Straw Hat, Outlander’s Pauldrons, Blue Overalls, Willow Belt, Tangled Thread Gloves, Apprentice Boots, Red Lumberjack Shirt, Rosethorn Staff
I’ve seen several variations on the classic cloth “Farmer” look that use the Skein Woven Mantle. Indeed, I had one squirrelled away in my Transmogrification vault guild bank for Kaohana to use in a Farmer outfit. When I finally got around to making her one, however, I decided to do something a little different and use this set of shoulders that she already had soulbound, rather than adding yet another item to her overflowing wardrobe.
I thought about using a really plain “walking stick”-type staff model, such as Umbranse’s Staff, with this kit. The fancier Rosethorn Staff appealed to me more, though I’m not quite sure why it felt so appropriate for a Farmer. Warlock Farmers should of course use their Staff of the Left Hand Path/Staff of Justified Sins. WTB a Transmogrifiable Broom!
25) Adorable Aborigine
Forever-Lovely Rose, Feline Mantle, Aboriginal Robe, Ambermist belt & gloves, Cerulean Filigreed Shirt, Sealing Heartstaff
Yes, I know that the Forever-Lovely Rose is not Transmogrification-friendly. It would be awesome if it was, though — Forever-Lovely Silk Rose, Forever-Lovely Patent Leather Rose, Forever-Lovely Mithril Filigree Rose, Forever-Lovely Eternium Rose… sigh.
24) Oracle of the Shifting Sands
Crown of Endless Knowledge, Replica Virtuous Mantle & Gloves, Vestments of the Oracle, Apothecary’s Waistband/Captain Sanders’ Sash, Earthmender’s Bracer of Shattering, Scarlet Filigreed Doublet, Invincible Stave
Acquiring one of the insect-wing robes from Ahn’Qiraj has been one of my WoW goals for a long time. The red & gold Priest version is the only one available to Tauren; someday, I’d like to get the blue Mage version and the lovely purple Warlock version with my Blood Elves. I wish Blizzard would change the Brood of Nozdormu rep grind to start from Neutral instead of Hated!
The Scarlet Filigreed Doublet is just the right shade of red to blend with this robe and fill in that little gap between the sleeves and the bracers. The Red Linen Shirt is too light and orangey, and the Red Workman’s Shirt is too dark.
The Invincible Stave isn’t quite Benediction, but since the latter staff is no longer obtainable, it will have to do.
23) Shado-Pan Mystic
Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Consortium Mantle, Amaranthine Robe, Silver-Thread Sash, Black Mageweave Gloves, Arakkoa Divining Rod, Inscribed Fan, Stylish Black Shirt
This outfit is largely inspired by the Shado-Pan Helmet set designed by WoW Roleplay Gear.
22) Darkmoon Oracle
Duskwoven Turban, Slime-Encrusted Pads, Willow Robe, High Councillor’s Sash, Soulcloth Gloves, Crescent Wand, Aboriginal Rod, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Golden Filigreed Doublet
The Aboriginal Rod is one of a few off-hand frill items that looks like a staff — the Highborne Star is another — thus allowing a caster to emulate Gandalf’s sword/dagger + staff style of magical combat.
The purple Mystical Headwrap might look even better with this outfit, but I have plans for another outfit for Kaohana that will use the green turban, and I don’t have any plans for outfits using the purple one.
21) Bountiful Nomad
Outlander’s Pauldrons/Stonecloth Epaulets, Greenweave Robe, Wise Man’s Belt, Heavy Linen Gloves + Seer’s Cuffs, Umbranse’s Staff
The accessories in this set would look equally good with the Native Robe worn by the Bountiful Feast Hostess. Using the white Stonecloth Epaulets, this set can be worn by a character in the low 30s. I think the brown Outlander’s Pauldrons coordinate with the robe better, but they require a level in the low 60s. The staff I am using is a Winterspring quest reward, but any plain staff will do. I’d love to use Nimar’s Tribal Headdress with this set, but it is no longer obtainable and thus awfully hard to find.
The Amaranthine set is created from Timeless Isle cloth armor tokens. An identical set can also be obtained from rep/valor or Mogu’shan Vaults. The necklace detail on the robe is simply marvelous!
The staff is the Bind-on-Account Inscribed Crane Staff crafted by Scribes.
19) Mistborne Regalia
The very boldly colored Mistborne set of quest rewards comes from Townlong Steppes and Dread Wastes. I don’t like this set well enough for Kaohana to keep it, but one of my Mages or my Warlock might.
The staff is the Torch of Noon.
18) Nayeli Regalia
The Nayeli set is obtained by questing in Valley of the Four Winds and Krasarang Wilds. Ordinarily, I would have tried to take a picture of this set at its namesake Nayeli Lagoon, but I was struck by what a pretty picture its blue & purple made against this backdrop of the blues of the Frosty Flying Carpet and the purples of the Darkmoon Faire.
The staff is Mok’Morokk’s Beat Stick.
17) Leza’s Kindred Spirit
Cowl of Whistling Winds, Journeyman’s Epaulets, Magus Tirth’s Robe, Send-Off Belt, Soulcloth Gloves, Staff of the Earthmother
In the begining, Kaohana and Leza were acquainted simply because the disciples of An’she were such a small group. During the perilous sea journey to Pandaria, they became much closer. As the fever took hold during the trek up the Dojani River, Kaohana did what she could to help her friend, but in the end, it was not enough. She misses her friend greatly and was even more heartbroken by the eventual passing of both of Leza and Dezco’s children from the Dawnchaser tribe’s care.
16) Hallowed Watcher
Jewel of the Firelord, Duskhallow Mantle, Watcher’s Tunic, Astralaan belt pants & boots, Black Mageweave Gloves + Bracers of the Black Dream, Torch of Austen, Grayson’s Torch, Orange Mageweave Shirt
I love the lacy sleeves and shaded stripes on the skirt of Chan’s Imperial Robes and the more easily obtained Hibernal/Venomshroud and Arachnidian Robes, but I’m not so fond of the giant spider motif. That imagery is fine for my Warlock or my Troll Mage, but it doesn’t really suit my Tauren Priestess. Fortunately, the Watcher’s Tunic has the lacy sleeves and fancy stripes without being so obviously spidery — and its colors are perfect for Hallow’s End!
I wanted to use the Circle of Flame with this outfit, but for all my lofty words about it being easily farmable, the drop rate is low enough and I waited long enough to start trying for it that it didn’t drop in a timely fashion. And I’d already purchased the Jewel of the Firelord for my Warlock…
Greenweave Mantle, Mistyreed Tunic, Councillor’s Sash, Elunarian Sarong, Hewing Gloves, Rejuvenating Scepter, Dreamseeker Dandelion, Green Linen Shirt
The tauren priesthood is fundamentally a divergent sect of tauren druidism. Perhaps they might best be understood as Balance druids who have gone past the balance point and out to the other extreme in an attempt to balance tauren society as a whole. Whereas many druids draw their power primarily from the moon, Mu’sha (Elune), and Balance druids attempt to maintain an equilibrium between the power they draw from the moon and that which they draw from the sun, tauren priests, or Seers, are essentially druids who draw their power primarily from the sun, An’she.
The color scheme and the names of key items in this ensemble reflect the druidic roots of a tauren priest’s power.
14) Princess Poobah’s Finery
Cassandra’s Grace, Wound-Cauterizing Spaulders, Princess Poobah’s Dress, Willow Belt, Replica Virtuous Gloves, Rejuvenating Scepter, Divine Companion
Oh, Princess Poobah, the perpetual damsel-in-distress of Jaguero Isle! I suppose the races of the Eastern Kingdoms might call a Tauren chieftain’s daughter a “princess”, but everything else about her claims to royalty seems slightly delusional to me. Before Princess Poobah can be rescued, her prized posessions — tiara, scepter, slippers, and diary — must be retrieved from the apes of Jaguero Isle. After she has been freed, she offers her tiara and her dress as rewards. The tiara is a mail item; this cloth crown is identical. I used this wand and book (the prettiest off-hand book in the game, to my eye) to represent her scepter and diary when I drew a chibi Princess Poobah two summers ago.
13) Primal Mooncloth
Cassandra’s Grace, Primal Mooncloth shoulders robe & belt, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Key to the Planes
When I began raiding, back in Burning Crusade, before Armor Specialization was introduced, Druids and Paladins wearing Primal Mooncloth were a common sight because it had the BEST stats for healing. It was such a beautiful set, but it was also BoP to the crafter and required the proper Tailoring specialization. I liked Kamalia being a Leatherworker, however, so all I could do was sigh longingly and plan for my Blood Elf Mage to pick up Primal Mooncloth specialization — even though it wouldn’t be optimal for her as DPS — if and when she ever managed to reach level 70.
When Cataclysm was announced, I was excited to roll a Tauren Priest because now Tauren would finally have a cloth-wearing class. By the time Kaohana reached level 70 and got her Tailoring up to 375, however, I’d only managed to gather about half of the four dozen Primal Life required to craft the Primal Mooncloth set. Then I got busy doing other things with other alts, and I didn’t take the time to farm Heroic Underbog with all my main-server level 90s until she was level 80. Now, I can wear that beautiful Primal Mooncloth set at last!
12) Pirate Queen
First Mate Hat, Exquisite Sunderseer Mantle, Corsair’s Overshirt, Captain Sanders’ Sash/Apothecary’s Waistband, Crimson Silk Pantaloons, Soulcloth Gloves, Buccaneer’s Boots, Torch of Austen, Mok’Morokk’s Grog Bottle
Now that I finally have a clothie Tauren, Kaohana didn’t want to imitate any of the NPC pirates exactly. She took cues from several different pirate costumes to create her own unique look. If you want to look more like Garr Salthoof out on the Riptide, Fleet Master Seahorn, and the pirates of Dread Captain DeMeza’s crew, keep an eye out for the Brightcloth Pants or Seafarer’s Pantaloons.
11) Candle in a Tempest
Stiffened Corpse Shoulderpads, Robe of the Moccasin, Belt of False Promises, Black Mageweave Gloves, Mok’Morokk’s Beat Stick
This outfit is probably as close to being a Shadow Priest as Kaohana will ever get. Aside from its lack of AoE, I have found Discipline to be quite satisfactory as a questing spec.
I started looking for these shoulders on the AH after I designed my Albus Dumbledore Transmogrification kit. Someday, I will start farming Karazhan with ‘Hana for the robe I used in that set. Until then, this robe from Wailing Caverns also coordinates wonderfully well with the shoulders.
10) Astralaan Archon
Junior Technician 3rd Grade Goggles, Aurora Mantle, Astralaan Robe, Wizard’s Belt, Soulcloth Gloves, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Staff of the Redeemer
That staff glows so brightly that she’d be blinded very quickly if she wasn’t wearing shades!
9) Chemise of Celestial Rebirth
Feralfen Amice, Chemise of Rebirth, Willow Belt, Celestial Kilt, Heavy Linen Gloves + Celestial bracers, Arakkoa Divining Rod, Book of Many Blessings
This unique and lovely short-sleeved chestpiece is an early Zangarmarsh quest reward. I had been looking forward to creating a Transmogrification kit with it. I had thought that I might use it in combination with a mix-and-match of the Sage’s and Shimmering sets. When I saw how beautifully the sky blue shades of the kilt I was already wearing matched the sky blue parts of the tunic, I changed my mind! It helped that I also already had the bracers, which create a practically seamless extension of the sleeves.
8) Gossamer Moonlight
Gossamer Headpiece & shoulders, Mooncloth Robe, Sage’s belt & gloves, Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Durak’s Wand, Dreamseeker Dandelion, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt
Kaohana was quite excited to finally have reached the appropriate character and Tailoring skill levels to craft and wear this beautiful robe.
7) Torch Tosser
Elementalist Skullcap, Mantle of Invocation, Journeyman’s Vest, Captain Sanders’ Sash/Apothecary’s Waistband, Phoenix Pants, Phoenix Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Torch of Austen, Grayson’s Torch/Mistyreed Torch, Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt
I first had the idea for this outfit while I was working on the “runway” outfit I designed for round 4 of Transmogrification Survivor, also using the Journeyman’s Vest. The end result has very little in common with that other set — only the chestpiece itself and the general color scheme.
The tailored Phoenix items match the tunic worn by Alliance flightmasters and Maxima Blastenheimer. This is my second attempt at making a reasonable Transmogrification kit using the Phoenix items; for my first attempt, check the Warlock page.
Kaohana probably won’t ever wear this kit with the proposed hat; by the time she levels up enough to wear it, I will likely be wanting to put her in some other outfit entirely.
6) Barbaric Beauty
Buoyant Shoulderpads, Barbaric Cloth Robe, Wizard’s Belt, Sage’s Gloves + Courier’s Wraps, Long Silken Cloak, Squire’s Shirt
This robe, with its pretty combination of lilac and blue and pink, has long been one of my favorites for Noblegarden. The triangular patterns are reminiscent of the decorations on a brightly colored egg, too!
5) Plains-Striding Mystic
Stonecloth Epaulets, Mystic’s Robe, Willow Belt, Seer’s Cuffs + Heavy Linen Gloves, Lushwater Cloak, Squire’s Shirt
On the one hand, the furry look of the Stonecloth Epaulets is great fun, because most other items with that appearance are leather. On the other hand, their white color makes finding equally low-level robes that look good with them somewhat difficult. The brown “fur” Outlander’s Pauldrons are much easier to work with, but require level 57 to wear.
4) Angel of the Earthmother
Gossamer Headpiece, Slime-Encrusted Pads, Robes of the Bloody Field, Apothecary’s Waistband (red)/Willow Belt (brown), Rotting Handwraps (red)/Gossamer Gloves (brown), Wand of Arcane Potency, Regal Star
Two simple changes toggle this outfit between Winter Veil festivity and year-round utility. I think I like these shoulders with this robe even better than the ones that are part of the designed set!
3) Goddess of Insight
Gossamer Headpiece shoulders & gloves, Robes of Insight, Sutarn’s Ring, Thornweaver Leggings, Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Formal White Shirt
In a curious paradox of personal aesthetics, I simultaneously think that this robe is gorgeous and that it shows way too much skin for my taste. The white provides a nice modest, but still divine-looking, backdrop for the colour and filigree of the robe. This set would also work beautifully with any of the other colours of this robe.
Use the Shimmering/Ivycloth or Sage’s Boots if your character wears shoes.
2) Magician’s Power
Gossamer Headpiece, Magician’s Mantle, Robe of Power, Sutarn’s Ring, Black Mageweave Gloves, Staff of the Earthmother
Kaohana never actually wore this set with the hat; by the time she could wear the hat, she could also wear the Robes of Insight.
1) Communal Regalia
The Communal set is the gear that a Priest is shown wearing on the new character selection screen. It is obtained in-game from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.
