A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Human Mage. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

45) Kirin Tor of Dalaran II

Theramore Arcanist’s Hat*, Mantle of Nimble Thought, Buccaneer’s Vest, Oracle Belt of Timeless Mystery, Khadgar’s Kilt of Abjuration, Soulcloth Gloves, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Drape of the Lithe, Cold Convergence, Kirin Tor Offensive Tabard
I was never really quite satisfied with the original version of this outfit (#31) because the belt wasn’t quite right (I should have just gone and farmed up this belt at the time). So here is an updated version that I like a lot better.

44) Professor of Potions

Fel-Proof Goggles, Duskhallow Mantle, Silver-Thread Robe, Ivycloth Sash, Fel-Infused Grips, Sorcerer Slippers, Warmonger’s Cloak, Green Martial Shirt, Arakkoa Divining Rod, Flask of Forest Mojo*
This is my “Severus Snape” outfit.

The combination of the sleeveless Silver-Thread Robe with a Martial Shirt produces a deeper black overall appearance than the nearly identical, sleeved Black Velvet Robe would.
The only still-available item with the same model as the Flask of Forest Mojo is the Tears of Heaven.
I didn’t include a hat in the original design because Snape doesn’t wear one. I initially thought about using a black hood to mimic Snape’s hair. Goggles are better, though. These gloves are better, too. Really, the lack of proper personal protective equipment in the Hogwarts potions labs is quite appalling…

43) Professor of Transfiguration

Wicked Witch’s Hat, Mantle of the Tribunal, Embroidered Gown of Zul’Drak, Living Mojo Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Cloak of the Grassy Cline, Mahogany Wand, Ironmender
This is my “Minerva McGonagall” outfit.

Although she is the Head of Gryffindor House, whose colours are red and gold, Professor McGonagall is clearly described as wearing “emerald green” robes. In the movies, she wears a dark forest green outer robe over a black dress.
I didn’t notice until I was making this outfit how the detailing on this Pandarian cloak style looks like a folded back hood.

42) Headmistress

Elder’s Hat, Stiffened Corpse Shoulderpads, Masquerade Gown, Vestal’s Irrepressible Girdle, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Footfalls of Memories, Shadowvine Cloak of Infusion, Greater Magic Wand, Igniter Rod
This is my “Albus Dumbledore” outfit.

Alas, there are no Artifact wands in Legion; given that Kaylynda is semi-retired (for the time being), however, she can wear a wand outfit if she wants to.
The”Headmistress” title would of course be the most appropriate to wear with this outfit, but I didn’t bother to try to get it when the Key to Nar’thalas Academy was the hot new shiny from Archaeology, so the “Professor” title will have to do.

41) Spellflower

Nightvale Mantle, Spellfire Robe, Silkwood Cord, Widow’s Clutches + Goldenvine Wraps, Ruby Slippers, Giorgio’s Caduceus of Pure Moods (LFR)
This pretty tailored Burning Crusade recolor of the Priest T2 robe pairs beautifully with the Val’sharah quest set shoulders to make a lovely spring outfit.

A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Human Mage. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

40) Kirin Tor Frost Mage

Iceshear Mantle, Raiments of the Corrupted, Wraps of the Persecuted, Slippers of Serenity, Tower of the Mouldering Corpse
Although Magister Serena’s robe has full-length sleeves, the robe that drops only has elbow-length sleeves. A blue recolor of the Ulduar Mage Tier gloves exists, but I don’t have it yet; these Naxx gloves coordinate well enough.

39) Eye-Catching Gilded Garb

Flare-Eyed Hood, Slaughterhouse Spaulders, Eye-Catching Gilded Robe, Deckhand’s Rope Belt, Stonewarper Wraps, Inferno Breath Sandals, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Rod of the Broken Temple
Having managed to collect the entire Highmaul/Blackrock Foundry Mage Tier-lookalike set through Garrison follower missions, Kaylynda wanted to wear it.

38) A Study in Blue

Sorcerer Robe, Sage’s Gloves + Wristbands of Divine Influence, Shimmering Geta, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Divine Companion/Rod of the Broken Temple
When I picked up the Shimmering Geta while farming BWL for the Black Ash Robe, it was time to make an outfit with the Sorcerer Robe.
The robe has elbow-length sleeves, so a shirt is needed to fill in the gap. The Blue Linen Shirt is the closest color match, but its high, collared neckline interferes with the robe too much. The Cerulean Filigreed Doublet has a low neckline and the color, while not quite right if you look close, is okay. The brown Archmage/Durable version of this robe (aka the Jedi robe) has full-length sleeves. I would love to have Daros Moonlance’s pink version of this robe (and shoes)!
This turned into another “mirror mage” kit — Kaelinda and Kaylynda wearing the same thing at the same time — so that I could get a picture of the blue robe and the pink robe side-by-side. (I’d forgotten that some of the Shen’dralar librarians wear the pink version of the robe!)

37) Aegwynn’s Last Apprentice

Nightvale Cowl & Waistwrap, Destroyers’ Mantle, Sketh’lon Survivor’s Tunic, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Soulcloth Gloves, Kimbra Boots*, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Jaina’s Staff
Given that the former Guardian lived at Theramore and advised her, Jaina Proudmoore may be officially considered Aegwynn’s last apprentice. It seems to me, however, that possessing Aluneth would also make the First Conjuror of the renewed Tirisgarde Order in a sense a last apprentice of the Magna.

36) Regal Holiday

Councillor’s Robes/Robes of the Royal Crown, Captain Sanders’ Sash/Councillor’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Cloak of the Inciter/Drape of the Spellweaver, Fogcutter Staff/Conifer Cone Staff
This is a longtime favorite Winter Veil outfit idea of mine, but this year is the first time that I’ve actually done both color variations.

35) Erinys’ “Nothing Gold Can Stay”

Mystical Mantle, Greater Adept’s Robe, Soulguard Girdle, Soulcloth Gloves, Mountainsage Sandals, Darkmist Cape, Wand of Happiness, Suntouched Flowers
Erinys created this outfit in April 2014 for MoMaR’s “ROYGBIV” Transmogrification contest. The colors remind me of crocuses blooming above the snow in early spring.
Kaylynda still hasn’t been to the Broken Isles to establish her Order Hall and get her Artifact weapon, so she is still free to make wand-wielding outfits.

34) Primary Colours

Mirren’s Drinking Hat, Warpwood Leaf Mantle, Robe of the Dragon Slayer, Captain Sanders’ Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Infernoweave Boots, Scarlet Filigreed Shirt, Rod of the Blazing Light
This kit is an iteration of an outfit I first created for my Draenei Mage three or four years ago. I had set out to make a kit with these robes and was pleased by the bold color combination created by pairing them with these shoulders.

33) Tinker

Chief Architect’s Monocle, Wound-Cauterizing Spaulders, Elemental Raiment, Cord of the Slain Champion, Godfrey’s Britches, Troll Handler Gloves + Elastic Wristguards, Gnomish Inventor Boots, Peacekeeper Blade, Spring Gadget
I originally designed this kit to go with these boots for my “These Boots were Made for Mogging” event three years ago. I was definitely going for a “Gnomish inventor” look with the gear detail in the belt — which fortunately also has great colors to coordinate with the boots.

32) Classic Wicked Witch

Wicked Witch’s Hat, Regal Mantle, Black Mageweave Robe, Nesingwary’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Footfalls of Memories, Crystalfire Staff
I can’t claim any sort of originality or creativity for this kit because it’s what the NPC witches are all wearing. This outfit will never be out of style for Hallow’s End.
Once I’d put the outfit together, then I had go do the Eastern Kingdoms & Kalimdor candy bucket tour to get a broom for the screenshots. I say this every year — I really wish the devs would just make the Magic Broom a permanent mount that can only be summoned during Hallow’s End. It would have to be easier to obtain than the Headless Horseman’s horse, though…

31) Kirin Tor of Dalaran

Theramore Arcanist’s Hat*, Mantle of Nimble Thought, Buccaneer’s Vest, Replica Sorcerer’s Belt, Khadgar’s Kilt of Abjuration, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Footfalls of Memories, Kirin Tor Offensive Tabard, Staff of the Skymagi
Kaylynda needed to be appropriately dressed before she responded to King Varian’s call to arms for the assault on the Broken Shore — and with the meta-knowledge that events in Dalaran were to come (though I’d not spoilt myself on what those events would be), I decided to dress her in the kit that is the reason why I did Isle of Thunder with this character.
I borrowed the idea of wearing these crafted shoulders from the Kirin Tor Quartermaster in Wrath-Dalaran.
The tabard and the staff make this an Alliance-only kit.

A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Human Mage. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

30) Mountainsage Regalia

The Mountainsage set is the gear that a Mage is shown wearing on the new character selection screen. It is obtained in-game from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.

29) Sleek Sprinter

Regal Armor, Serenity Belt, Shimmering Trousers, Riding Gloves* + Earthmender’s Bracer of Shattering, Sage’s Boots, Competitor’s Tabard*, Helcular’s Other Rod or Torch of Austen + Tears of Heaven
I originally designed this outfit to commemorate the Olympic Summer Games in 2012 with the Swoop-Tail Shoulders and Sage’s Trousers. I was very well-pleased by how the green on top, red in the middle, blue on the bottom pattern of colors mimicked the pattern of the colors of the rings on the tabard. I couldn’t make it in-game at the time because only Kamalia had the limited-edition Competitor’s Tabard that commemorated the 2008 Summer Games. The account-wide Appearances collection in Patch 7.0 allowed me to finally make this outfit in-game for the 2016 Summer Games. Now that we can hide shoulders, however, it seemed most appropriate to leave them off, so I shifted the green color to the trousers and the blue color to the shoes.
For the staff version, I chose a plain, straight staff to suggest a vaulting pole.
For the wand-and-off-hand version, of course she had to be running the Torch! I chose this flask off-hand to represent the water that would be carried by a distance/endurance runner.

28) Stormwind War-Mage

Sage’s Mantle, Sorcerer Drape, Serenity Belt, Royal Trousers, Black Mageweave Gloves + Fireflash Bracers, Saltarello Shoes, Brilliant Hexweave Cloak (2-655), Stormwind Tabard, Replica Lion’s Fang, Karabor Arcanist Tome
This kit was made to go with the movie tie-in weapon. It also uses the new-and-improved version of the Stormwind Tabard obtained from the Garrison Bunker.
Betcha most of the Transmogrification kits that will be made to go with this sword (and its matching shield) will be plate outfits for Paladins or Warriors. Well, Mages can wield swords, too, so here’s a Lion’s Fang kit in cloth, for a change.

27) Gorian Mysteries

Shadowmoon Shoulderguards, Robes of the Arcane Ultimatum, Hexweave Belt (2-655), Mountainsage Handwraps + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Cavedweller’s Climbers, Staff of Infinite Mysteries
Kaylynda got this robe from a Highmaul follower mission, and I remembered that I had thought, upon first seeing the previews for the Highmaul Mage set, that the Shadowmoon shoulders might be good alternates. This also seemed like a good use for the stage 2 Hexweave belt.
Savage Blood required: 15

26) Raven’s Apprentice

The Argent Skullcap, Shoulderwraps of the Enthralled, Necrology Robes, Sly Mojo Sash, Cloudscorcher Handwraps, Felcast Sandals, Magician Staff
I have wanted this robe for my Warlock for ages but thought I would never be able to get because it has a ridiculously low drop rate. But then one day my Alliance Mage found it on the AH, and, thanks to her Warlords Garrison gold income, she could even afford to buy it. So, naturally, she needed a kit for it right away. My Warlock will get to use this robe when the account-wide Wardrobe goes live in Legion.
Somehow this kit feels like it would be great for a Shadow Priest, or one of the Raven Priests at New Hearthglen. But Kaylynda is a Mage… and, oh, hey, these are kind of the same colors as Medivh’s robes, and he does the raven thing, too!

25) Lunarfall Arcanist


Mistscape Wizard Hat & Robe, Feline Mantle, Serenity Belt, Tempest’s Touch, Wandering Boots*, Ley Staff*
This is why I wanted — nay, needed — a level 100 Alliance Mage. I like the Horde Town Hall and Inn well enough, but for all the other structures, especially the Mage Tower, I like the Alliance architecture better.

24) Commodore of the Cavalry

Fleet Commander’s Hat, Enumerated Shoulderpads, Sorcerer Drape, Laughing Skull Waistguard, Astralaan Pants, Coldwraith Handwraps + Sorcerer Bracelets, Saltarello Shoes, Brilliant Hexweave Cloak (2-655), White Tuxedo Shirt, Tower of Theramore*
Savage Blood required: 15
I’ve been waiting to make this kit for a long time — I originally designed it about 3.25 years ago for the Equestrian event of the Mogolympics. Oddly enough, it works equally well as an equestrian or a nautical theme, probably because the competition equestrian costume has its roots in cavalry uniforms — which share aesthetics with naval uniforms.

23) Shado-Pan Archmage

Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Mantle of the Elven Kings, Red Mageweave Vest, Sash of the Burning Heart, Legs of Ringing Echoes, Gloves of Tirisfal, Saltarello Shoes, Cloak of Passion, Dark Silk Shirt, Archmage’s Staff*
This kit resulted from the notion of using these specific pants in a Shado-Pan helmet outfit. I chose this tunic because it makes the red band at the top of the pants looks like an extension of the tunic rather than part of the pants themselves.
This staff came from the limited-time pre-Mists-launch version of the Theramore’s Fall scenario. There are several other staves that would look good with this kit, though.

22) Pyresinger


Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Funeral Pyre Vestment, Sash of Mortal Desire (10), Riding Gloves* + Glowing Magical Bracelets, Kurkenstoks, Funeral Pyre
I originally imagnined this kit as an RP outfit for my Tauren Priest. As it happened, however, I was able collect all the items with my Human Mage more quickly, thanks to a series of Alliance-side Firelands runs by the OLRG.

21) Aldor at Karabor


Pauldrons & Vestments of the Aldor (T4), Bridenbrad’s Sash, Zodiac Gloves* + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Soul-Strider Boots, Crazy Cenarion Cloak, Blue Linen Shirt, Staff of the Faithful*
Kaylynda feels a bit awkward about calling herself “of the Aldor” because she is a Scryer… And, for that matter, the Aldor are an order of priests whereas the Scryers are an order of mages, so shouldn’t the Aldor Regalia have been a Priest set, with Scryer Regalia as the Mage set?

20) Time Lord

Time Lord’s Mantle & Robes, Serenity Belt, Riding Gloves* + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Unassuming Slippers, Drape of the Sullen Goddess, Brown Linen Shirt, Karabor Arcanist Rod
Many thanks to the Old Ladies Raiding Guild for helping me to get the T10 Mage pieces! I adored that set immediately, and the shoulders and robe are really the key pieces. If only a Mage could use the matching mace or shield

19) Mirror Magi


Lightning Infused Mantle, Robe of the Magi, Wizard’s Belt/High Councillor’s Sash, Cloudscorcher Handwraps, Cushy Cenarion Walkers/Slippers of Serenity, Staff of the Arcane Path/Staff of the Royal Wizard
My Blood Elf Mage, Kaelinda, has a serious case of faction envy and would Blink over to the Alliance just as fast as she could if High Elves ever became a playable race for the Alliance. Seeing the Alliance’s Mage Tower when I finally got to Ashran with my Draenei Mage, I knew that Kaelinda would want to have that structure, not the Horde’s Spirit Lodge, in her Garrison.
Kinevra, the wide-eyed, freckle-faced teenager from Theramore with a hopeless crush on Anduin Wrynn, had no desire to continue leveling; with a change of name and face, my level 90 Human Mage is now Kaylynda, Kaelinda’s Alliance doppelganger/surrogate.

18) Wandering Manaweaver

Shadowbrim Travel Hat, Vindicator Shoulderpads, Manaweave Robe*, High Councillor’s Sash, Riding Gloves*, Kurkenstoks, Mantle of Desire, Ley Staff*
I would love to use the Rainbow Girdle with this robe, but, alas, it is plate.
I didn’t have any suitable purple gloves or boots on hand, there weren’t any on the AH, and I didn’t feel like going questing for some — so these brown ones will have to do. I like brown with purple and blue, anyway.

17) Silver Seer


Theramore Arcanist’s Hat*, Pauldrons of Sufferance, Seer’s Robe, Sage’s belt gloves & boots, Cloak of Cheerful Flowers, Greatstaff of Righteousness, Silver Covenant Tabard
The stripeyness of the tabard blends quite nicely with the stripeyness of this robe!
The hat may be considered optional or replaced with headpieces such as the Chief Architect’s Monocle, Moonsoul Crown, or Gaea’s Circlet.

16) Spell-Seer

Mistscape Wizard Hat, Pauldrons of Arcane Rage, Seer’s Robe, Laughing Skull Waistguard, Tempest’s Touch, Royal Boots, Cloak of Cheerful Flowers, Corla’s Baton, Nolkai’s Lantern
After spending all that time on Tol Barad to get the Spectral Steed, Kinevra was extremely grateful to not be one of the poor exiled mages incarcerated in “The Hole”.

15) Lavender Green (dilly-dilly)

Conjurer’s Hood, Greenweave shoulders & cloak, Pressed Felt Robe, High Councillor’s Sash, Wooly Goat Punchers, Boots of Duress, Pot Stirrer, Evergreen Branch
I love how the High Councillor’s Sash is the perfect shade of purple to blend right in with this robe. The soft green of the Crown of the Sun would coordinate beautifully with this robe, too — but I didn’t think of that until just now. 😛

14) Miss Bright Eyes

Eye of Flame, Greenweave shoulders & cloak, Bright Robe, Councillor’s Sash, Quilboar Crone Gloves, Ikeyen’s Boots, Ogre Mage Staff
Kinevra occasionally volunteers to help chaperone Miss Danna‘s field trips.

13) Wealth and Wisdom


Eye of Flame, Lightning Infused Mantle, Robe of Solomon*, Serenity Belt, Vicious Embersilk Gloves, Slippers of Serenity, Ash Feather Cloak, Staff of the Royal Wizard
This robe was a quest reward from pre-Cataclysm Redridge Mountains. A similar look could be created with the Elegant Robe or Robes of the Battleguard plus a Cerulean Filigreed Doublet.

12) Lifeblood

Mirren’s Drinking Hat, Feline Mantle, Bloody Apron*, Crimson Silk Belt, Bloody Surgeon’s Mitts + Jessera’s Fungus Lined Cuffs, Slippers of Serenity, Cloak of Cheerful Flowers, Red Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Staff of the Second Orb
The Bloody Apron dropped from the original version of Shadowfang Keep. A sleeved version, the Smoldering Robe, was available as a very rare drop. Neither robe can be obtained anymore. A similar outfit could be made with the Simple Blouse and Colorful Kilt.

11) Hot Stuff!


Jewel of the Firelord, Firehawk Mantle, Death Speaker Robes, Sash of the Burning Heart/Embereye Belt, Enumerated Gloves, Extravagant Boots of Malice, Warmonger’s Cloak, Archmage’s Staff*/Funeral Pyre
When I saw the Firelands on the Old Ladies Raiding Guild schedule, I considered temporarily faction-swapping Kaelinda so that she could (hopefully) pick up the Mantle of Closed Doors. A little later, it occurred to me that if Transmogrification really will be getting upgraded (I’m guessing patch 6.1 or 6.2), it shouldn’t really matter which character collects all the spiffy-looking stuff I want to make Transmogrification kits with. So I decided to take Kinevra, who is still level 85, to OLRG instead. The very first weekend that the OLRG went to the Firelands, the Mantle of Closed Doors didn’t drop. However, the next best thing — the T12 Mage shoulder token — did, and I won it!
Of course, I had to make an outfit with it right away!

A collection of Transmogrification Kits actually worn in-game by my Dwarf Paladin. Outfits are listed from most recent to least recent. Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

5) Guardian of Ironforge

Earthshape Pauldrons, Warbringer’s chest pants gloves & boots, Belt of the Sand Reaver, Gavel of the Order, Royal Treasury Courier’s Shield, Ironforge Doublet & Tabard
I’d use the Ironforge Cloak, too, but I haven’t got the rep for it.

4) Turalyon’s Charge

Turalyon’s Plate with Lightbringer Greathelm, Sunsoul Girdle, Truesteel Boots (3-670), Brilliant Hexweave Cloak (2-655), Ironfoe, and Maximillian’s Shield
I’d been sitting on my level 100 boost, not knowing quite whether I wanted to use it on an existing character or save it for a new character concept. Recently, it occurred to me that I often wish that my Dwarf Paladin, who’d been stagnating at level 63-ish ever since I faction changed her from a Blood Elf during Cataclysm, were higher level — so why oughtn’t I just spend the boost on her? So I did it. This is the outfit I’ve been longing to make with this character that she needed to be higher level to wear. I like the Alliance versions of the Trial of the Crusader gear so much better than the Horde versions…

3) Lion Heart

Truth Bearer Shoulderguards, Light-Touched Breastplate, Replica Lightforge Belt, Stone Guard Greaves, Replica Gauntlets of Heroism, Sapphiron’s Scale Boots, Replica Lion’s Fang, Replica Lion’s Heart
So I was thinking about how it was sad that I couldn’t use the Lion’s Fang and Lion’s Heart to make a kit with my Tauren Paladin, and my Dwarf Paladin tapped me on the shoulder and pointed out that I could make a kit for her with them.

2) Royal Champion

Princess Poobah’s Tiara, Mantle of the Horusath, Leonine Breastplate, Replica Belt of Valor, Starcaller’s Plated Legguards, Judicator’s Gauntlets, Slime Kickers, Lookout’s Tunic*, Competitor’s Tabard*, Royal Mallet
I’ve had this sort of kit for a Paladin in the back of my mind for quite a long time. I didn’t actually make it, however, until the beginning of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games prompted me to put together a set of Transmogrification kits featuring the Competitor’s Tabard.

1) Redeemed Blood Knight I


Bloodscale pauldrons, Ursa’s Embrace, Leggings of the Ursa, Hyperion belt gloves & boots, Tranquillien Champion’s Cloak, Sin’dorei Warblade
This set is a slight iteration of an outfit I originally described in “The Well-Dressed Paladin, Revisited” guest post I wrote for Manalicious.
After I decided that I would rather have a Dwarf for my secondary Paladin than a Blood Elf, I was delighted to find that this set also coordinates beautifully with the Ironforge tabard.

A collection of the best Transmogrification Kits that I have made for my Draenei, Dwarf, Forsaken, Gnome, Golbin, Night Elf, Orc, Pandaren, Troll, and Worgen Mages.
Characters are listed from highest-level to lowest-level.
Items that are no longer obtainable are marked with an asterisk (*).

~*~*~

Void-touched


Shadowmoon Shoulderguards, Fur Covered Robe, Hexweave Belt (2-655), Grips of the Void + Crystalweave Bracers, Waterfall Drape, Squire’s Shirt, Staff of the Redeemer
This kit came about because I wanted to use the stage 2 version of the Hexweave Belt — but not with its own robe — and thought it might be a good alternate belt for the Shadowmoon set. It is, but I’m not really all that fond of the Shadowmoon robe, so I looked for other robes I already owned that looked good with the combination of the Hexweave belt and Shadowmoon shoulders. It seemed appropriate that this classically Draenei-styled robe from Azuremyst Isle questing looked the nicest overall! After I’d decided to use this robe, it only seemed right to make the outfit with Kaprikka.

Space Opera Jumpsuit

Shoulderwraps of the Enthralled, Vindicator Tunic Belt & Pants, Manaspark Gloves, Enumerated Sandals, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Staff of the Skymagi
The Vindicator set has always made me think of the jumpsuits worn by spaceship occupants in stories from the Golden Age of early science fiction.
Races that cannot wear invisiboots might like to use the Vindicator boots or the Ethereal Boots of the Skystrider that match the gloves.

Scorched Clouds


Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors, Cloudscorcher Robe, Angkhal Cord, Feralfen Mystic’s Handwraps, Ogre Slayer’s Cover, Funeral Pyre
Under most circumstances, I Transmogrify over the lurid Cloudscorcher Robe as quickly as I can. During the Midsummer Fire Festival, however, that orange and blue color combination is right in season.
I almost didn’t include this outfit in this selective collection because I’m not really all that well-pleased with it. It was the cloth entry for a set of orange & blue outfits I made for Midsummer Fire Festival one year, however, so I figured I’d better keep it around just in case anyone noticed that there were Fire Festival outfits in the posts for all the other armor types and went looking through all the cloth posts for a cloth Fire Festival outfit.

Aldor Covenant

Pauldrons & Vestments of the Aldor, Nethershard Girdle, Gloves of the Fallen Wizard, Staff of the Unknown Road, Silver Covenant Tabard
Why the Silver Covenant NPCs are wearing Mage T4 raiment, I don’t know. But because they are, and because the Aldor are a Draenei faction, and because she is Draenei, Kaprikka insisted upon dressing like the Silver Covenant NPCs for her Silver Covenant set rather than coming up with something more original.
Kaprikka chose this hairstyle to go with this set in honor of her hero/role-model concerning all things Draenei and Mage-ical, Millya.

Soulmate Searching


Mantle of the Locusts, Soulcloth Vest, Wizard’s Belt, Titan-Forged Cloth Leggings of Salvation, Wraps of the Persecuted, Shattrath Jumpers, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Staff of the Skymagi
Some years ago, Shoryl of Dwarven District started a Transmogrification meme called “Mog Busting”. Though it was a fantastic idea, it sadly fizzled out after only a few rounds. While it was going, however, Kaprikka was lucky enough to have a beautiful dating outfit designed for her by Effraeti.

Soulspark

Cloudscorcher Cowl, Angkhal Amice, Soulcloth Vest, Wizard’s Belt, Manaspark Gloves, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Staff of the Redeemer
This hat looks best, I think, on white-haired Draenei and (naturally) Pandaren.

Soulwind

Netherwind Crown, Shoulderwraps of the Enthralled, Soulcloth Vest, High Councillor’s Sash, Darkweave Breeches, Sage’s Gloves + Crystalweave Bracers, Enumerated Sandals, White Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Staff of Divine Infusion
The first outfit I created for Kaprikka using the Soulcloth Vest.

White Wizard

Aurora Mantle, Astral Knot Robe*, Dawnspire Cord, Zaetar’s Gloves, Silky Spider Cape, Nolkai’s Lantern
The Astral Knot Robe was awarded from a pre-Cataclysm Mage class quest. The Gossamer or Aurora Robes may be used for a similar effect.

Hand of Destiny



Feline Mantle, Robe of the Dragon Slayer, Cincture of Woven Reeds, Scholar’s Gloves, Staff of the Royal Wizard, Tabard of the Hand
The unique Tabard of the Hand is awarded only to Draenei characters at the completion of the Bloodmyst Isle storyline, when they are acclaimed as revered heroes of the Hand of Argus. This outfit contains only items that a Draenei Mage could reasonably expect to be able to obtain by about the same time that she completes the Bloodmyst Isle storyline and receives the Tabard of the Hand, thus allowing her to make a complete, reasonably well-coordinated outfit to wear with her new tabard almost immediately.

Sagefish

Sage’s set with Aurora shoulders
What Draenei can wear this set and not think of Diktynna and the Red Snappers?

~*~*~

Royal Apothecary

Black Velvet Robes, Belt of Arugal*/Sash of Whispered Secrets, Black Mageweave Gloves, Apprentice Boots, Chillwind Staff
The NPC Royal Apothecary Society members are wearing the mail Infantry Belt, so I could only match the colour, not the style.

Bride of Arugal

Ghostly Mantle*, Robes of Arugal, Belt of Arugal*/Sash of Whispered Secrets, Black Mageweave Gloves, Apprentice Boots, Light-Imbued Lantern
Another classic set for a Forsaken.
The Shadow Council Mantle works very well with this robe.

Emerald Enchantress

Watcher’s cap & shoulders, Hinott’s Outer Robe, Keyton’s Sash, Brewer’s Gloves*, Slippers of Unturned Loyalties, Judkins’ Staff
The irony of using vibrant, uncontrolled life as the backdrop for an ensemble worn by an undead did not escape me.

~*~*~

S.A.F.E. Operative


Swoop-Tail Shoulders, Shimmering set, Jessera’s Fungus-Lined Cuffs, Green Linen Shirt
Some Green-Tinted Goggles would complete the look, but I am too attached to both of Kelilla’s current professions to want exchange one of them for Engineering.

Darkmoon Magician



Elder’s hat vest belt & pants, Silk Mantle of Gamn*, Shimmering gloves & boots, Aurora bracers, Cloak of the Darkmoon Faire, Green Holiday Shirt, Greater Magic Wand, Spellbinder Orb
Use the Gossamer shoulderpads to retain the white look of the Silk Mantle of Gamn, or use the Elder’s or Hibernal shoulders or the Slavehandler Amice to match the greens and purples.

Keeper of the Fens

Enumerated Shoulderpads, Fen Keeper’s Robe*, Shimmering Sash, Heavy Linen Gloves + Jessera’s Fungus Lined Cuffs, Bright Boots, Arcane Staff*, Gilnean Adventurer’s Shirt
This lovely recolor of the Night Elf Druid starter robe was awarded from the pre-Cataclysm version of Rethiel the Greenwarden’s quest chain in the Wetlands. The Spellbinder Robe could be used for a similar look.

~*~*~

Wild Magic

Zealot’s Robe*/Brightcloth Robe, Willow Belt, Native Pants, Flutterer Silk Handwraps + Firwillow Wristbands*/Goldenvine Wraps, Cookie’s Table Cloth, Resurgence Rod*/Ogre Mage Staff
Despite the hardships that the Darkspear Trolls suffered during her childhood and teenage years, Kiki’maia retains a bright, optimistic personality, which she expresses with a love of bright, cheerful colors.

Red Blood, Blue Blood

Double-Stitched Woolen Shoulders, Sanguine Robe, Wise Man’s Belt, Red Silk Trousers, Heavy Linen Gloves + Seer’s Cuffs, Sen’jin Doublet
Races that wear shoes might want some blue boots, such as the Cushy Cenarion Walkers.

~*~*~

Chief Officer of Finance

Swoop-Tail Shoulders, Ivycloth Tunic, Silver-Thread Sash, Delicia’s Tights, Buccaneer’s gloves & boots, Silver-Thread Cuffs, Tuxedo Shirt
This outfit originally takes its inspiration from the captains and first officers of the zeppelins that run between Orgrimmar, Undercity, and Grom’gol, who wear the other colors of this chestpiece style.

~*~*~

Mama Frostwolf


Stonecloth Epaulets, Mystic’s Robe, Willow Belt/Joanna’s Sash, Tangled Thread Gloves, Pagan Shoes, Thug Shirt*
I like to use a shirt with this robe style because the bodice is a little too skimpy for my taste; the Squire’s Shirt would probably also work well with this coloration of the robe.

~*~*~

Role Model


Seer’s Padded Armor, Nightwind Belt, Simple Kilt, Heavy Linen Gloves + Sage’s Bracers, Sandals of the Neverending Bridge
Motherhood is a prominent feature of Kymberlea’s RP story, so I made her a “Mom” outfit.
I like this style of bracers because they are so small and also because from certain angles they look sort of like a wristwatch.

Druid of the Ley

Fallen Apprentice’s Robe, Belt of False Promises, Ritual Gloves + Greenweave Bracers, Ritual Stopper’s Slippers, Darnassus Doublet, Scepter of Celebras*
I chose this robe for my Night Elf Mage because is the same style as that worn by a newly-created Night Elf Druid — though before she became a Mage, Keriluna was neither a Druid nor a Priestess, but a Bard.

Stillpine Interpreter

Feline Mantle, Fur Covered Robe, Wizard’s Belt, Woolgathering Gloves, Ritual Stopper’s Slippers, Squire’s Shirt
It was delightfully easy to put together a nice low-level Transmogrification kit to go with this beautiful and unique starting zone quest reward robe.

Deep Purple Dreams

Feline Mantle, Cat Lover’s Vest, Wizard’s Belt, Darkweave Breeches, Woolgathering Gloves, Ritual Stopper’s Slippers
I love the deep purple color of this chestpiece and these pants, so naturally I had to use them together!

Huojin Apothecary

Exquisite Sunderseer Mantle, Apothecary’s Robe, Apothecary’s Waistband, Rotting Handwraps, Huojin Tabard
I like the cloth quest rewards from the Ghostlands so much that I send all of my cloth-wearing Horde characters there. Kaoling continues to wear them because they coordinate so nicely with the Huojin tabard.

Country Girl

Blue Overalls, Willow Belt, Mangy Claw Mitts, Trogg-Slayer Boots, Seer’s Fine Stein, Bright Yellow Shirt
A plain and simple look for a quiet, unassuming girl… but don’t make the mistake of underestimating her.

I’d been sitting on my level 100 boost, not knowing quite whether I wanted to use it on an existing character or save it for a new character concept. This weekend, it occurred to me that I often wish that my Dwarf Paladin, who’d been stagnating at level 63-ish ever since I faction changed her from a Blood Elf during Cataclysm, were higher level — so why oughtn’t I just spend the boost on her?

To be sure, I just want her to be higher level so that I can use higher level stuff to make outfits for her, but it’s not like I’d be spending the boost on a character I’d actually play if I used it on any other character — any other character I boosted would be just for the purpose of being a mannequin, too. That’s how I spent my level 90 boost, after all — on the Male Tauren Warrior, so that I’d have a male model to dress up on occasion.

So I did it.

Doing the boost meant I got to see the “how to play your DPS spec” tutorial (which seemed very rudimentary indeed) and do the Alliance version of the Broken Shore scenario again. The Alliance version feels more emotionally powerful to me. I tried to take screenshots of things I might have missed the first time through, with Kaylynda. As I was taking pictures of the Weary-Eyed Mourners at Varian’s funeral and being impressed by the variety of their outfits, I remembered someone saying that the mourners are actually Alliance Garrison followers. I’m less familiar with the Alliance Garrison followers than the Horde ones, but once I thought of that, I began to recognize them — or at least their clothing, from their Horde equivalents.

Anyhow, here is the outfit I’ve been longing to make with this character that she needed to be higher level to wear. I like the Alliance versions of the Trial of the Crusader gear so much better than the Horde versions…
