Kaelyla is a Void Elf.

With the Orb of the Sin’dorei, she can become a Blood Elf.

With the Orb of Deception, she can become a Nightborne.

And by entering the Well of Eternity, she can become a Night Elf.

So if you want to be All The Elves and side with the Alliance, roll a Void Elf.
If you want to be All The Elves and side with the Horde, roll a Nightborne.

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

28) Shadowed Woods

Living Wood Spaulders (H), Sanctified Lasherweave Vestment (10H/25N), Riplimb’s Lost Collar (H), Cindersilk Gloves (H), Boots of the Unrelenting Storm, Rustic Workman’s Shirt, Origin of Nightmares
These shoulders were the only item I really wanted out of the Highmaul/Blackrock Foundry Druid Tier set. The colors and the textures reminded me of the robe from the ICC Druid Tier set, and the rest of the kit grew from there.

27) Moon Mists

Ravenbear Disguise/Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover + Demonic Gladiator’s Dragonhide Spaulders, Miststalker’s Jerkin Belt & Pants, Karabor Skirmisher Gloves, Grom’gar Wolfpelt Boots, Sentinel’s Branch
This outfit for Night Warrior-phase Kivrin is loosely inspired by an outfit created by Alunaria that used some of the same pieces.

26) Rain Poppy II

Crown of Infinite Prosperity, Contender’s Leather shoulders, Robes of Summer Flame, Supple Waistguard (stage 1), Jungle King Mudtossers, Biornskin Moccasins, Rain Poppy Staff
This outfit is an update of Kerisa’s outfit #19, a lovely ensemble that was originally created by Erinys.

25) Summer Flames

Jewel of the Firelord, Firekin Amice, Robes of Summer Flame, Supple Waistguard (stage 2), Biornskin Moccasins, Tabard of Summer Flames, Ranseur of Hatred (H)
Why hadn’t I thought of putting this tabard with this robe before?

24) Kul Tiran Swashbuckler

Blue Tricorne Hat, Extravagant Epaulettes, Vest of the Azerothian Champion, Fairweather Belt, Flame-Seared Leggings, Antiquity Handler’s Gloves, Ooey-Gooey Galoshes, Pearly-White Jackknife
This is mostly one of the variations of the leather Kul Tiras dungeon set, with a few substitutions.

23) Moonfrost


Crown of Eternal Winter/Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Shoulderpads & Leggings of the Chosen Dead, Lo’ap’s Tunic, Briarback Cinch, Trickster’s Handwraps, Boots of the Forked Road, Jaded Crystal Dagger
I designed this outfit some time ago, but decided to delay using it until I’d unlocked the Night Warrior appearance because I thought it would look even more awesome against that complexion.

22) Moon Shadow

Replica Darkmantle Armor with Crown of Eternal Memorial, Blue Martial Shirt, and Vibro Knife
Kerithian had no love for Teldrassil, but Kivrin did. Thus, Kivrin was affected by the splash from Tyrande’s transformation into the Night Warrior, but Kerithian was not.
I have had this in mind for Kivrin ever since the Night Warrior customization for Night Elves became available. She had just been patiently waiting for Kinevra to get to 120 and witness Tyrande’s ascension.

21) Everlasting Efflorescence


Crown of Boundless Courage, Cenarion Spaulders, Chestpiece of Malorne, Vine Waistband, Clefthoof Hide Leggings, Forest Leather Gloves, Forestlord Striders, Gossamer-Spun Greatcloak, Staff of the Verdant Circle
There were several different items that I wanted to be in this kit — the flower crown, the leafy shoulders, the staff, the kilt. Sometimes I have an idea for a group of items to put in an outfit and just can’t get it to work, so I was glad that I was able to find other pieces that pulled this outfit together quite nicely.

Will I ever do more with any of these characters than enter the world and maybe manage to get through the 1-5 zone and out to their racial capital city? Realistically speaking, probably not. Nevertheless, the collector in me still wanted to have a complete set of Classic Classes.

Way back in 2011, Millya of Manalicious* was doing 5-minute sketch portraits (batch 1, batch 2) for her friends, and I requested a portrait of Kaelinda**, thinking that I might use it for digital coloring practice…

Eight and a half years later, I’ve finally gotten around to doing that.

drawing by Stacey Landry; colors by me

~*~*~

* I miss Manalicious and still regret that I didn’t ever commission a watercolor portrait of one of my characters, even though I wouldn’t actually be going to BlizzCon…

** because I’d already gotten a Millya portrait of Kamalia, which has been my Gravatar ever since

Having had the good fortune to obtain a Lovely Black Dress, I made an outfit with it for my Void Elf.

Little Black Dress

Forever-Lovely Rose, Lovely Black Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Silver-Thread Gloves, Sorcerer Slippers, Clear Crystal Rod*/Diamond Tipped Cane

Then I got to thinking about how there are three other colors of the Lovely Dress, and three other Elf races, and these outfits practically made themselves:

Lady in Red

Forever-Lovely Rose, Ferocious Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Lovely Red Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Night Dreamer Handwraps + Nightvale Wristwraps, Boots of the Tempest, The Sunbreaker, Penelope’s Rose*
Meet Kaelydia, a new alter-ego whose story I might get around to telling one of these days.

Arcwine

Ternary Mantle, Lovely Blue Dress, Royal Trousers, Gloves of the Infernal Nocturnal, Shimmering Geta, Staff of Haunted Memory
Koralythria is too young and not of a high enough social class in Suramar City to have the glowing tattoos permanently, but she went and got a temporary set for this special occasion.

Moonshimmer

Orchid Amice*, Lovely Purple Dress, Stonecloth Britches, Replica Virtuous Gloves + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Kurkenstoks, Mok’Morokk’s Beat Stick
Imagine the original Ashenvale music playing…

~*~*~

As of Lunar Festival in 2020, the flower crowns can now be Mogged year-round, making these Love is in the Air outfits possible!

Crown of Infinite Prosperity, Lovely Red Dress, Bloodscale Belt, Greaves of the Martyr, Red Crane Sword

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

20) Spring Nights

Springrain Spaulders & Belt, Cuirass of Calamitous Fate, Kilt of the Night Strider, Duskbat Exterminator’s Treads, Springrain Staff
I wanted to see what I could do with this chestpiece and a kilt to make an outfit to wear while in Balance spec. The Springrain items have just the right shade of dulled gold on their trim to coordinate perfectly with the vest!

19) Calamity “K”


Netherstorm Eyepatch, Puncture-Binding Spaulder, Cuirass of Calamitous Fate, Briarback Cinch, Feather Lined Legguards, Karabor Skirmisher Gloves, Coarse Leather Treads (Kul Tiran), Shipwrecker Knife
I have wanted to use this Alliance-exclusive chestpiece since, well, the time that Trial of the Crusader was the current raid. Battle for Azeroth‘s Kul Tiran pieces complement it quite nicely.
Going Feral, with the Fangs of Ashamane equipped, lets my Druid play at being a Rogue.
I’m rather amused that using the darkest green hair color on my Night Elf gives her Orb of the Sin’dorei-Blood Elf-equivalent the darkest red hair color.

18) T-Shirt Enthusiast

Shirtsi’s Cloth Shirt


Threads of Tirion


Selis’ Silk Shirt


Shuurt’s Precious


Jade’s Lovely Shirt


Tia Shortsleeve’s Short Sleeve Shirt


Gild’s Crewneck
with Nice Shorts and Goat Hide Boots

I chose Kerithian to collect the new shirts from the “Free T-Shirt Day” microholiday because she has Nice Shorts, cool sneakers, cute ponytails, and access to the Emerald Dreamway (which gives her almost as much mobility around Azeroth as a Mage).

17) In the Pale Moons’ Light

Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Flamefly Spaulders, Broodmother Armor, Wild Gladiator’s Belt of Prowess, Kurenai Kilt, Master Brewer’s Gloves, Mud Encrusted Boots, Archon Glaive
This kilt was very popular for Alliance Monk outfits near the beginning of Mists; this hat is Druid-specific, so a Monk version of this kit would just leave the head bare.

16) Druid of the Cycle

Antlers of Malorne, Thunderlord Shoulderguards, Slavebreaker Tunic, Cruel Gladiator’s Dragonhide Belt, Kurenai Kilt, Gloves of the Flayed, Coarse Leather Treads, Skullcutter of Trials
Death and decay are essential processes of the natural cycle and balance of life…
A creepy Drustvar-inspired kit. I’ll have to make a more cheerful Kurenai Kilt kit sometime in the future.

15) Kul Tiran Coarse Leather Armor

Coarse Leather Armor with Pork-Chopper Pike
The Alliance appearance of the Battle for Azeroth crafted leather armor matches the Darkwater quest set from Stormsong Valley. Horde characters can obtain this appearance by collecting the Briarback set of BOEs from the AH.
Although I have not historically been a fan of hoods, the hoods from the leather quest sets from the Broken Isles and Kul Tiras are really quite sleek and attractive.

14) Druid of the Talon

Dragonhawk Hat, Preened Ironfeather Shoulders, Vest of Sobbing, Narf’s Explosiveproof Strand, Oil Gush Leggings, Discarded Slaughterhouse Gloves, Scourgebane Treads, Fordragon Blades
I first saw this glaive carried by the Druids of the Talon at the Shrine of Aviana. I’d never noticed it as a player weapon before, so I assumed that it was an NPC-exclusive model. When the Wardrobe came out, I searched for it in the array of polearms that I hadn’t yet collected, but couldn’t find it, so I continued to think that it was an NPC-only model. Recently, Alunaria tipped me off that it is an Alliance-exclusive model from the Trial of the Crusader. My Horde Druid still can’t imitate the Druids of the Talon, but now my Alliance Druid can!
The NPCs are wearing a brown recolor of the Feralheart hat that isn’t available to players. The Dragonhawk Hat seemed like the best substitute.
Some of the other Druids of the Talon, most notably the female Tauren, are wearing the Phantasmal Headdress, a recolor of the shoulders that is only available to players in mail, the Vest of Restraint, and pants that match the vest but are unavailable to players.
The Druids of the Talon found at Skysea Ridge on Draenor-of-the-alternate-timeway are wearing different armor, but carry the same glaive.

13) Piebald Lagomorph

Black Spring Circlet, Ghostwalker Pads, Scouting Tunic, Dusky Belt, Wild Gladiator’s Leggings, Boneshredder Gloves, Scouting Boots or Spring Circlet, Taut Dragonhide Shoulderpads, Boneshredder Jerkin, Highlander’s Leather Girdle, Scouting Trousers, Bandit Gloves, Boneshredder Boots; Jin’do’s Verdict
I keep going back and forth on which version of this outfit I like better.

12) Ashamane’s Cub

Wild Combatant’s Dragonhide set with Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Coarse Leather Waistguard, Master Brewer’s Gloves, Kafa Leather Boots, and Fangs of Ashamane (default appearance)
A decade ago, when I was first beginning my journey in Azeroth, after creating our Tauren Shaman & Druid and playing with them for awhile, BTH and I thought it might be fun to create a pair of Alliance characters, too. We decided to make Super Stealth Buddies: he made a male Night Elf Rogue, and I made a female Night Elf Druid. That character was named Kivrin, after the protagonist of Connie Willis’s excellent Doomsday Book. We didn’t have as much fun with our Night Elves as we did with our Tauren, however, and eventually Kivrin got pruned from my growing alt roster. I reassigned her name; given the Black Plague setting of Doomsday Book, it seemed more appropriate to give the name Kivrin(ne) to a Forsaken character.
Kivrin now returns as a Feral-specced alter-ego of Kerithian. The original Kivrin had this hairstyle and color. She also had the “shadow” tattoo style that Kerithian now wears, but to further differentiate the two characters (because I’ve kept the skin tone and face the same), I’ve changed her tattoo style to the “blades” design that matches the markings on the face of the Night Elf Cat Form.

11) Heartwood


Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Dragonhide with Cenarion Helm, Furious Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Thatch Eave Vines, and G’hanir (original appearance, default tint)
I picked up this set for Marks of Honor in late Legion because it’s the outfit worn by Lyessa Bloomwatcher, the original keeper of G’hanir. When I was looking for something for Kerithian to wear to the Chamber of the Heart, its leafy green colors seemed like just the thing for the occasion.

Crown of Good Fortune, Deep Earth Shoulderwraps (N), Expensive Tunic, Darkwood Sentinel’s Cinch, Shado-Pan Reliquary Kilt (LFR), Twisted Wraithtalon Gloves, Hot Spring Sandals, Springrain Staff

I don’t know what you do and don’t have in your Wardrobe, Alunaria dear — I don’t have half of these items myself — but perhaps this will give you someplace to start?

Teldrassil was never a good idea.

There, I said it.

I hadn’t completely agreed with Shan’do Stormrage’s assessment that it was necessary to sacrifice Nordrassil — and our immortality — to stop the demon Archimonde, but it had been done. Instead of trying to regain what we had lost by trying to grow a new World Tree, however, we should have been more focused on reclaiming some of the other things we had lost. The forest now known as “Felwood”, for one. The regions of Ashenvale that had become infested with orcs, for another. If we’d cleared out the orcs from Ashenvale when we had the chance, then their so-called allies the undead might not have defiled the Dor’danil Barrow Den and killed my grandfather…

And perhaps if we had not been so determined to “not interfere with the development of less advanced societies*” (utter rubbish, given our interactions with the furbolgs), we might have been the ones to save the tauren from the centaur, denying the orcs one of their most valuable allies. The tauren could have been our allies, instead — not just the ones who’d been invited into the Cenarion Circle, all of them. Hadn’t it been my own grandmother who had argued that the existence (and sophistication) of music created by the tauren tribes demonstrated that they were a more intelligent and advanced society than their centaur, harpy, quilboar, and gnoll enemies?

But I digress. Teldrassil. It was Shan’do Staghelm’s idea. When the Aspects, especially my beloved Ysera, initially refused to give it their blessing, that should have been a clue that it really wasn’t a good idea. After all, hadn’t Shan’do Staghelm already been involved in the creation of a failed World Tree, Andrassil-that-had-become-Vordrassil up in Northrend? Like Andrassil, which had created the leak into the Emerald Dream that allowed the Emerald Nightmare to begin, Teldrassil also was corrupted.

Furthermore, Teldrassil and Darnassus had only even existed for, what, fifteen years? Twenty? Maybe thirty? Even for a young kaldorei like myself, less than a millennium old, born after the War of the Shifting Sands, that was still an absolutely insignificant amount of time. I didn’t understand how any kaldorei could truly think of Teldrassil or Darnassus as “home”, except perhaps the handful of children who had been born there.

Watching Teldrassil burn, I was infuriated by yet another Horde atrocity, and I grieved for the innocent lives that I could not save. But for the tree itself? I found no sorrow in me for the loss of a false home.

~*~*~

* Yes, that is a sideways reference to Star Trek‘s Prime Directive.

~*~*~

Remember, this is an RP story! Kerithian’s opinions are not necessarily my opinions!

…Okay, maybe they are. Apologies to my Night Elf friends, but Darnassus and Teldrassil have never particularly captured my imagination. I don’t dislike Darnassus the way I deeply dislike Undercity — it just never “clicked” with me (I am glad to see Undercity gone — definitely no tears there at all!). When it comes to Night Elf zones, I’ve always preferred Ashenvale to Teldrassil.

I played through the War of Thorns first as Horde, then as Alliance. I’m glad I chose to do it with my Rogue on the Horde side; I don’t think any of my other characters (except perhaps the Warlock) could have stomached doing what Sylvanas commanded. My heart ached through the whole thing, as Horde as well as Alliance.

Look, I play Horde because I want to play Tauren and Blood Elves. I don’t play Horde because I like or agree with the role they are too often given in the overarching plotlines of the game. I am tired, so, so very tired, of the Horde always having to be the bad guys. And there are those who might say, oh, but the Alliance sometimes does bad guy things too — but the Horde always has to do more and worse bad guy things. For example, the things the Horde sees the Alliance doing versus the things the Alliance sees the Horde doing in the first part of the Jade Forest storyline, or the Horde killing the Astranaar guards with a swift poison versus the Alliance using sleeping powder on the Horde guards in the captured furbolg village in the War of Thorns.

The kaldorei have now suffered a population decimation on par with that suffered by the quel’dorei when Arthas and the Scourge burned the Dead Scar through Eversong Woods and what is now the Ghostlands. The Warbringers: Sylvanas short draws that parallel very clearly. I’m not sure what I want to say about that beyond pointing it out…

~*~*~

Kerithian is the granddaughter of my Night Elf Mage, Keriluna, through Keriluna’s son, Ceredion. She was born, raised, and spent most of her early life at Feathermoon Stronghold in Feralas before becoming one of the caretakers of Nordrassil during its recovery after the Battle of Mount Hyjal, then one of the vanguard on the Molten Front during the Cataclysm. The events relating to her grandparents that she mentions are described in Keriluna’s Song.

Keriluna herself survived the inferno by virtue of not being in Darnassus when it happened. When she resigned her position as one of the Temple of the Moon musicians at the beginning of Cataclysm to pursue the Arcane arts, she moved herself and her belongings to Feathermoon Stronghold — a place that had long been something of a secondary home for her — so that she could study under the tutelage of Estulan.
I didn’t actually move the character to Feathermoon Stronghold and set her Hearthstone there until a week or two ago, though, shortly before playing through the War of Thorns campaign.

On the other side of the faction fence, Kivrinne had been traveling back and forth between her home lab in Undercity and Plaguewood Tower in Eastern Plaguelands, where her on-again, off-again romantic interest Argent Apothecary Judkins resides, for some time. After her friends Parqual and Vellcinda failed to return from the events chronicled in Before the Storm, she moved herself and her belongings out to Plaguewood Tower permanently.
As with Keriluna, I didn’t actually move the character there until recently, and in this case, the nearest place where she could reset her Hearthstone is Light’s Hope Chapel.

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

10) Archdruid of the Dreamgrove II

Dreamgrove Raiment with Pit Lord’s Destroyer
Kerisa didn’t want to wear this set with its hood, but Kerithian did.
The dangly bead on the belt of this set always puts me in mind of the Furbolgs and their glowing beehive lanterns. The crescent-shaped ornaments elsewhere in the design look like they are made of amber, but for some reason that doesn’t make me want to go out and take pictures in Mantid places.

9) Jolly Molly and Her Polly

Netherstorm Eyepatch, Pozzik’s Vest, Coarse Leather Waistguard, Bluegill Breeches*, Nimble Leather Gloves, Prospector’s Boots, Thunderstrike
Alunaria is so sweet! She gave everyone who participated in her “Happy Thoughts” project over the holidays a Cap’n Crackers!
In consequence of this unexpected and generous gift, Kerithian is my first Alliance character to break level 110. She did some of the Druid Order Hall Campaign and some questing in Val’sharah to get to level 111 so that she could wear the Kul Tiras belt that I wanted to use for this outfit.

8) Vivacious Val’sharah Violet

Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Heroes’ Dreamwalker Mantle, Tranquil Bough chestpiece leggings & boots, Girdle of Lenience, Grips of the Chosen Dead (LFR), Dreamweaver Initate’s Tabard, Springrain Staff
A little something purple with this alternate coloration of the Dreamweavers tabard, for Alunaria.

7) Cyclops’ Ruin

Rune-Enscribed Hood, Fire-Chanter Shoulders, Decaying Herbalist’s Robes, Riplimb’s Lost Collar (N), Skygrip Handguards, Steppebeast Boots, Wild Wood Staff
Lord of Icecrown from WoWable requested a design for a Druid kit using the Mythic version of the Spur of the Great Devourer from Hellfire Citadel. I don’t have that weapon myself, so I chose an alternate staff with similar coloration and pointyness to actually make the kit with after I’d designed the outfit in the Dressing Room.
I thought that the creepiness of this Warlords Monk tier-lookalike hood would go well with the creepiness of the intended weapon. Then I built the outfit around the teal-contrasted-with-rust color scheme of the hood.
Here’s how the kit would look with the Spur of the Great Devourer:

I like how the overall effect of the ensemble has turned out — but now I’m having some totally different ideas for a Druid kit to go with this weapon…

6) Drassil Defender

Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Furious Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Malfurion’s Vestments of Conquest, Girdle of Lenience, Mana-Saber Hide Gloves, Dark Leather Boots, Darnassus Tabard, Kihrawr’s Scratching Post
Kerithian was wearing this outfit (without the tabard) when she went to meet with High King Wrynn in Stormwind. Athough she is personally not particularly fond of Teldrassil and Darnassus, after she arrived in Kalimdor and began to understand the situation there, she put on the Darnassus tabard to express her support for her beleagured kin.

5) Guardian of Hyjal

Nordrassil Headpiece & Wrath-Mantle, Merciless Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Tunic & Legguards, Girdle of Nefarious Strategy (LFR), Heth’Jatari Battlegloves, Leyman’s Boots, Staff of the Verdant Circle
Kerithian was one of the druids who tended Nordrassil during its recovery following the battle with Archimonde. She left Nordrassil to assist in the areas surrounding Shaladrassil after the defeat of Xavius in the Emerald Nightmare.

4) Frost-touched Flamestrider

Shoulderpads of the Chosen Dead (LFR), Flamestrider Robes, Supple Waistguard (stage 3), Trickster’s Leggings, Supple Gloves (stage 2), Warmongering Gladiator’s Boots of Victory, Tabard of Summer Skies, Frostbitten Staff
The cloth Silksand Wraps is identical to this leather robe. The rest of the outfit would look quite different in cloth, though!

3) Druid of the Summer Flame

Jewel of the Firelord, Passive Resistor Spaulders (H), Vestment of Summer, Manimal’s Cinch, Murkblood Gloves, Dragonhawk Boots, Funeral Pyre (N)
Although I used Firelands shoulders in the outfits I made with this robe for all the other armor types, the Druid Firelands shoulders just weren’t right for it. I made up for it by using a Firelands weapon. I was going to call this outfit “Leyara’s Legacy”… until I saw on Wowhead that in BfA there will be a set that closely resembles the Druids of the Flame.
If I had it, I would use the Hidden appearance for the Scythe of Elune, Sunkeeper’s Reach, with this outfit.

image from Wowhead
Acquiring it requires Exalted rep with the Dreamweavers and getting a rare drop from the first boss of Darkheart Thicket. I’ve been feeding Kerithian Dreamweavers rep tokens, but she’s nowhere close to Exalted, and she hasn’t done any dungeon running. Kerisa has the rep, but she hasn’t run Darkheart Thicket often enough to see the item drop.

2) Vindictive Archdruid of the Alliance

Vindictive Gladiator’s Dragonhide Armor with Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Runesworn Grips, and Intensity
It’s so nice that when I purchase a PvP appearance with a Horde-side character, I also get the corresponding Alliance appearance. I’m so very very fond of the blue-white-gold color scheme that whenever there is gear with faction-dichotomous appearances, I almost always like the Alliance version better.

1) Spring Rain

Springrain Armor
Boosted characters recieve this set of armor. It can also be obtained from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.
