A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Blood Elf Warlock. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).
26) The Netherlord’s Tag-Along
Faded Spirit-Wrencher Shoulders, Ariya’s Auspicious Robe, Gem-Inlaid Velvet Cinch, Amaranthine Handwraps, any dark slippers, Chillwind Staff
I didn’t have anything specific in mind for the outfit of Kalaneia’s alter-ego, but I did have a specific appearance that I wanted — the smaller hoop earrings instead of the larger ones and the burgundy hair color in the “shy” cut. I didn’t originally intend to change the face, but I flipped through the options anyway and discovered that whereas I’d thought I already had the darkest lip color for Kalaneia, there was actually a face with a darker shade of red. So I picked that one.
Then I made an outfit to complement the appearance I’d chosen.
25) Volatile Power
Mantle of the Malefic, Robe of Volatile Power, Fire-Cord of the Magus, Silkwood Handguards, Replica Dreadmist Sandals, Spire of Scarlet Pain
This robe was famously seen on Katrana Prestor in classic WoW.
I love the leaf pattern on the skirt.
24) Spellbinder’s Lament
Wang’s Unshakable Smile, Mantle of the Extensive Mind, Spellbinder Robe, Wine Tasting Gloves, Junglestrider Sandals, Mantle of Doubt, Staff of Solemn Secrecy
Still a Priest tier-lookalike hat, but at least a less saintly-looking one. If Patch 7.1 hadn’t added the ability to hide belts, I’d be using the Belt of Arcane Storms with this outfit.
23) False Hope
Cowl of Benevolence, Contender’s Satin Amice, Buccaneer’s Vest, Ruby-Linked Girdle, Heavy Woolen Pants, Zaetar’s Gloves, Gnomish Inventor Boots, Staff of Immaculate Recovery
I love the way the soft browns of the pants and shoulders create a gradient between the white of the cowl, blouse, and weapon and the darker boots in this serenely lovely outfit originally created by Zhau@Hellfire-EU for my “These Boots Were Made For Mogging” event three years ago.
A poor injured adventurer seeing someone dressed like this ride by might think their salvation had come and cry for help… but they would be sadly disappointed, because Kalaneia hasn’t even bothered to keep up with her First Aid training.
22) Shadow Reaper
Yalia’s Cowl, Earthripple Shoulderpads, Robe of the Shadow Council, Felcast Cord, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Saltarello Shoes, Staff of the Left Hand Path
I would have loved to have used the Spooky Scythe — the model used for Allari the Souleater’s Scythe of Souls — for this kit, but, alas, it is a polearm.
21) Bonfire Watcher
Circle of Flame, Balespider’s Mantle (N), Watcher’s Tunic, Clutch of Andros*, Legwraps of the Master Conjuror, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Landfall Silk Treads, Crystalfire Spellstaff (3-660)
The colors of this tunic, which has the same style as the top half of the Venomshroud Silk Robes, are just perfect for a Hallow’s End outfit!
There is no lookalike item for these Warlock tier shoulders, but this outfit would also look great with the shoulder slot hidden. The Black Belt of Knowledge is a good belt alternative. These boots are from the Horde version of the first part of the Jade Forest questline; the equivalent item from the Alliance version is purple & blue. If you’ve done the Jade Forest with both Horde and Alliance characters, though, you’ll have access to both versions of the boots in your Appearance collection! Otherwise, try the plain, dark Saltarello Shoes.
20) Commander of Demons
Horns of the Left Hand Path, Vir’naal Spaulders, Robes of Insight, Zykes’ Belt, Bramble-Proof Leggings, Auchenai Keeper Gloves, Kurkenstoks, Demon Commander’s Drape, Drakebinder Greatstaff (LFR), Trapper’s Shirt*
As summoning demons and binding them to her will is part of a Warlock’s schtick, Kalaneia decided that she needed to buy the Demon Commander’s Drape from the Legion pre-launch events. Then, of course, she needed a new kit to go with it, and this was the robe that she wanted to wear. I did try making the outfit without shoulders, or a shirt, and with skimpy trousers in the Dressing Room… and I knew that I just wouldn’t feel comfortable running around like that. So I found some shoulders I liked and cued the colors for the shirt and pants off of the shoulders. As always with one of my kits using this style of robe, feel free to consider the shirt optional and use skimpier trousers if you wish.
19) Witch Queen of Angmar or Warlock-Wannabe
Vilebreath Mask, Illidari Shoulderpads, Robes of the Umbral Brute, Hexweave Belt (1-640), Amaranthine Handwraps, Shattrath Jumpers, Malroc’s Staff of Command
For some reason, the coloration combined with the design of this robe always reminds me of the scene in Lord of the Rings: Return of the King where Frodo, Sam, and Gollum are on the concealed mountain stairway overlooking the gates of Angmar when the Witch King goes out to hunt.
The shoulders are a recolor of Warlock T5, and the robe is a recolor of Warlock T8, and the hat, though actually a Warlords Priest tier-lookalike item, recalls the Warlock T4 helm — thus, this is a kit for all those Mages and Shadow Priests who just wish they were as awesome as Warlocks.
18) Scion of Slytherin
Hexweave Mantle (3-670), Beastwalker Robe, Ivycloth Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Blood-Bind Sandals, Legacy of Arlokk
My Hunter had been farming Zul’Gurub for the music roll. After seeing this staff drop a few times, I decided that my Warlock really ought to have it. This was the most properly Slytherin-coloured robe to go with it.
Savage Blood required: 30
17) Rain of Fire
Circle of Flame, Hexweave Mantle & Belt (3-670), Black Velvet Robes, Diamond Clutching Gloves, Blood-Bind Sandals, Warmaster’s Firestick (3-660), Goblet of Anger
Silverblade contributed a simply magnificent cloth kit using level 3 Hexweave items and the sleeveless version of this robe to the original Savage Blood Fashion Parade. I also made a kit using level 3 Hexweave items for that event, though mine was not nearly as good. This kit combines my favorite ideas from both of those earlier concepts.
Savage Blood required: 90
Shadowmoon Cowl, Hatefury Mantle, Frostweave Robe, Voodoo-Woven Belt, Wooly Goat Punchers, Boots of Duress, Shroud of the Highborne, Terokk’s Shadowstaff, Green Trophy Tabard of the Illidari
This outfit is adapted from ideas that I originally developed nearly four years ago for my “The Very Model of a Warlock, Dark and Terrible” post. I’ve got to keep playing my Warlock just so I can get around to actually creating in-game my favorite outfits from that collection.
The Shadowmoon Cowl is my favorite hood in the game. I’d love to see that model in brown and black for leather-wearers.
(Oh my… looking at the commentary on the previous kit, it seems that Kalaneia was wearing it for the better part of a year… a few months ago, though, I switched everything in the outfit except the shoulders to this kit to wear while I was farming Hyjal for these shoulders)
15) Fel-Flavored Mana
Horns of the Left Hand Path, Slavehandler Amice, Andorhal Tunic, Ivycloth Sash, Darkweave Breeches, Cloudscorcher Handwraps, Boots of Duress, Cloak of Concentrated Hatred, Staff of Beasts
I first imagined the basic idea of this kit about three years ago, while I was developing ideas for a Transmogrification contest. Shortly thereafter, I refined it when I made my “very model of a Warlock, dark and terrible” post. This kit is somewhat simpler than any of those outfits, however, because the shoulders are an ordinary green-quality drop rather than any of the raid drop shoulders I originally suggested. One of these days, perhaps I’ll get around to farming up those raid drop shoulders and update this kit accordingly…
14) Frostfire Wind Sculptor
Frostwolf Wind-Talker set with Dark Phantom Cape, Frostwolf Augury Staff and Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt
A “recipe set” obtained from early questing in Draenor, dressed up a bit with a shirt and this very nicely matching low-level cloak. I’d forgotten just how much of a cleavage shirt this particular style is, but it does mitigate at least some of the side/underboob exposure from the robe.
13) Blacklight Battleguard
Katoom’s Mask, Resplendent Epaulets, Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Black Belt of Knowledge, Coven Britches, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Junglestrider Sandals, Stylish Black Shirt, Staff of the Qiraji Prophets/Swarming Sting-Staff
If I had been sensible, I would have farmed for the staff at the same time as I was farming for the robe. But I was not, and didn’t begin farming for the staff until after I obtained the robe. The Swarming-Sting Staff was a good stand-in until I finally obtained the Qiraji staff, though.
12) Shado-Pan Summoner
Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Mantle of the Corruptor, Simple Blouse, Fire-Cord of the Magus, Coven Britches, Black Mageweave Gloves + Wraps of the San’layn, Oilfoot Slippers, Shadow Prowler’s Cloak, Matsuba’s Breadmaker
More decadent Warlocks may prefer to use the Cournith Waterstrider’s Silken Finery.
Resplendent Epaulets, Death-Speaker’s Tunic, Cloudscorcher belt & gloves, Darkweave Breeches, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Ermine Ruff Cloak, Swarming Sting-Staff
This chestpiece is the only Transmogrification-friendly item in the same style as the vests worn by level 1 Draenei hunters, warriors, and paladins.
10) Dreadmist Regalia
Tattered/Bloodstained & Replica Dreadmist set
Most of my cloth-wearing characters Transmogrify over the heirloom chest and shoulders (and hide the hat) just as quick as they can because they don’t want to look like a Warlock. Kalaneia said, “I am a Warlock! Why shouldn’t I want to look like one?” and went to the Darkmoon Faire the next time it came to town to buy the gloves, belt, and boots to fill out the set.
9) Mistress of Flame and Shadow
Jewel of the Firelord, Silver-Thread shoulders gloves & boots, Chan’s Imperial Robes, Durable Belt, Staff of the Left-Hand Path, Stylish Black Shirt
When I saw this robe on the AH for a real steal of a price, I snapped it up and stashed it away for when my Warlock would be able to wear it.
A Mantle of Closed Doors would be the perfect finishing touch for this outfit at higher levels.
8) Adjudicator of the Left-Hand Path
Horns of the Left-Hand Path, Geomancer’s Spaulders, High Robe of the Adjudicator*, Apothecary’s Waistband, Heavy Linen Gloves, Walking Boots, Staff of the Left-Hand Path
Besides being the dress of the Stormpike Emissaries and the Bloodmages, this robe is also a classic vanilla Warlock look. At level 30, Warlocks went to Ratchet to learn how to summon their Felpuppies. There, they also met Menara Voidrender, who started them on a Warlock-only quest chain that ultimately awarded the short-sleeved Enchanted Gold Bloodrobe. Across the sea in Silverpine Forest, there was a non-class-specific (Horde) quest chain that awarded a nearly identical robe, the long-sleeved High Robe of the Adjudicator. The Silverpine chain was easily soloable by the mid-twenties, making the High Robe of the Adjudicator available to my wee Warlock earlier and easier than the Enchanted Gold Bloodrobe. So I made sure to get the High Robe of the Adjudicator for her, just in case. And indeed, she never quite got around to starting the class-specific quest chain before Cataclysm came along and wiped away both quest chains. Then I was really glad that I’d done the general one in Silverpine!
7) Poor Little ‘Lock
Mantle of the Panther, Thistlefur Robe, Grassland Sash*, Shivery Handwraps*, Walking Boots, Darkwood Staff, Neophyte’s Shirt
Just when Kalaneia was beginning to get excessively bored of being a walking advertisement for the Darkmoon Faire, Batinna’s Dress Up challenge began. Kalaneia’s Thistlefur Robe was a nice fit for the first theme, “poor”. The other items in this outfit were in her inventory already, except for the shirt, which was in my guild bank, and the staff, which required completing two quick and easy quests in Tirisfal Glades. Then Kaelinda had to send her a bit of gold for the Transmogrification and Barbershop fees, as Kalaneia was too poor to afford them by herself.
6) Darkmoon Faire Mystic Mage
Watcher’s Cap & shoulders, Disciple’s robe, Shimmering Sash, Greenweave Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Lavender Mageweave Shirt
I like the green gloves and purple boots, but if you want to look more like the NPC, use brown boots and look for the hands-less Soulcloth or Exiled Dabbler’s gloves. The NPC’s belt is not available to players.
Despite the much-vaunted rivalry between Mages and Warlocks, Kalaneia does not take (much) offense at the “Mage” name of this outfit. She’s confirmedly Destruction and can barely be bothered with demons, except as a gateway to greater fire-slinging power.
5) Classic Embersilk
Embersilk set with Corpulent Shoulderpads and Dark Silk Shirt
This style of cloth armor comes in several color schemes, and I like them all.
Until the Geomancer’s Spaulders show up on my AH, these shoulders are the best readily available option.
Talbar Mantle*/Watcher’s Mantle, Embersilk Robe, Ivycloth Sash, Greenweave pants & gloves, Walking Boots, Green Linen Shirt
During October 2012, JD Kenada invited us to join him in observing Breast Cancer Awareness Month by putting together our best pink Transmogrification Template Kits.
I’d like to use the Vengeance Staff with this outfit, but it is very hard to find.
High-level characters can make a more spectacular version of this outfit with the Vestments of the Shifting Sands and Ruthless Gladiator’s Cord.
Katoom’s Mask, Ghostly Mantle*, Necropile Robe*, Clutch of Andros*, Silver-Thread gloves & boots, Staff of Metanoia*, Undercity Doublet
This is a much more Warlocky outfit than the previous one, but it’s not quite perfect. The greenish flame at the top of the staff is deliciously fel, but I was rather dismayed when I looked at the staff up close and saw that it was all Priesty-colored with whites and golds and blues. The Soulkeeper, Staff of Hale Magefire, and Elemental Mage Staff all share the same model but with darker, more sinister colors; I should start watching the AH for one of them to pop up at a price I can afford.
The sleeved version of this robe, the Robes of Arugal, are still available from the level 20 version of Shadowfang Keep. The Shadow Council Mantle matches these robes quite nicely.
2) Phoenix Rising
Exquisite Sunderseer Mantle, Red Mageweave Vest, Durable Belt, Phoenix Pants, Phoenix Gloves, Junglestrider Sandals, Golden Filigreed Doublet, Staff of the Sun
This outfit was built around the tailored Phoenix Pants and Gloves. The shoulders aren’t ideal, but they were the best that were readily obtainable for her level. The Consortium Mantle and the Mantle of the Elven Kings from Tempest Keep are my prime choices for shoulders to complement the rest of the ensemble.
1) Felsoul Regalia
The Felsoul set is the gear that a Warlock is shown wearing on the new character selection screen. It is obtained in-game from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.
