Hmm, hmm, hmm — now that brown will be an available hair color for Void Elves in Patch 9.1.5, I’ll be able to make Kaelyla’s pre-Telogrus Incident appearance with the toon Kaelyla herself. This opens up some interesting storytelling possibilities — Kaelyla as her pre-Fall of Quel’thalas self, with brown skin and brown hair and blue eyes, in Alliance locations; Kaelinda as Kaelyla’s post-Fall of Quel’thalas-pre-Telogrus Incident self, with brown skin and brown hair and green eyes, in Horde locations; Kaelyla as her post-Telogrus Incident self, with blue skin and blue hair and blue eyes, in Alliance locations.
Hmm, hmm, hmm — but I think I’ll still end up creating a new Alter Ego of Kaelyla who will be an Alliance High Elf through and through.

Come Patch 9.1.5, the Maw Intro will be skippable at last! Time and time again I’ve thought about bringing Kamalia and Karaelia into the Shadowlands so that I’d have a character of each armor class there, but just couldn’t stomach doing the Maw Intro again.
Once one character has completed a 9.0 Covenant campaign, alts who join the same Covenant will be able to skip to the end! I intend to have Kamalia join the Night Fae and Karaelia join the Kyrian immediately upon arriving in Oribos using Threads of Fate. When they eventually reach level 60, it’ll be great to not have to run them through the Campaign storylines before I can get to the business of Mog collecting.
Covenant swapping will be easy to do once a certain Renown threshold has been reached, and all unlocked Covenant rewards will always be accessible regardless of current Covenant affiliation! This means that once Kamalia has acquired her Night Fae set(s) and reached the required Renown level, she can hop over to the Kyrian and get their set(s), then hop back to the Night Fae, and be able to use all of those awesome appearances!
Even if I don’t do anything with Kamalia and Karaelia in the Shadowlands until much later in the lifecycle of the expansion, I’ll still be happy to have them settled in with their intended Covenants.
~*~*~
I’m also pretty spiffed about the new customizations for Void Elves. We’ve got warm silver, platinum blonde, honey blonde, red-gold, and cherry red as “natural” hair colors for Void Elves. I suspect that a new Alter Ego for Kaelyla will show up who will have “natural” skin tone and hair color — a proper Alliance High Elf!

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

46) Dreaming Wisteria


Moonpriest’s Visor, Hateful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Robes of the Shadowcaster, Cord of Uncertain Devotion, Darkweave Breeches, Shadowlace Cuffs, Noble’s Fancy Boots, Moon Guard Drape, Night Courtier’s Spire
I acquired this staff for my Druid, thinking I wasn’t particularly interested in it for my Mage. Then I thought of pairing it with this robe and Khrysanthemina’s purple hair, and here we are.
A nice alternate hat for a Horde character would be the Fae Revel Masque:

45) Wild Hunt Messenger



Sorcerer Drape, Bridenbrad’s Sash, Squallshaper Leggings, Pure Aspirant’s Gloves + Fireflash Bracers, Pure Aspirant’s Treads, Winterwoven Bulb, Tabard of the Wild Hunt, Staff of Radiance
This Classic chestpiece and these BfA pants were just the thing to coordinate with the Tabard of the Wild Hunt — and with each other. I love it when I find items from such widely disparate expansions that go together so nicely!
Although the Frost-Touched Cord coordinates wonderfully with the rest of the ensemble —

— it doesn’t line up properly with the waistline of the tabard, so a different belt is needed when the tabard is worn.

44) Fae Darter


Sprite Darter’s Shawl, High Councillor’s Pants, Tinkmaster’s Spare Shoes, Night Courtier’s Branches, Meadow Guardian’s Staff
The Sprite Darter chestpiece and this Night Fae backpiece just seemed like they ought to go together.
I love the extended tunic design of this chestpiece, and would like to see this rigging used for other extended tunic chestpieces in the future.

43) Weald Wanderer


Shadowbrim Travel Hat, Hateful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Blue Overalls, Willow Belt, Elder’s Gloves & Boots, Green Workman’s Shirt, Faewoven Pack, Meadow Guardian’s Staff
For whatever reason, it seemed like my first outfit to go with this particular Night Fae backpiece style should be an outdoorsy hiking-type kit.

42) Effervescent Night


Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Wrathful Gladiator’s Silk Amice, Robe of Effervescent Light, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Tempest’s Touch, Slippers of the Twilight Prophet, Night Courtier’s Bulb, Viridium Staff of Alacrity
The key concept of this ensemble is the combination of the Night Fae backpiece, the robe, and the shoulders. It is also an interation of Kaohana’s outfit #75.

41) Stars’ Grace



Vestia’s Pauldrons of Inner Grace, Ren’dorei Mantle & Belt, Bonecaster’s Sarong, Gloves of Penitence, Willow Boots, Periwinkle Cloak, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Starshard Edge + Decanter of Distilled Shadows
Playing around with more shoulders that look fabulous with the void wings from the Ren’dorei Heritage Armor chestpiece.
I love how the lavender shirt coordinates with the shoulders and the kilt — but I also rather like how this particular kit looks without the shirt.

Shadowlands is worth getting just for all the wonderful new customization options!
Here’s how the appearances of my Eversong Elves characters changed.

Although I’m glad that the ear length options exist for the people who will be delighted to use them, I will not be changing any of my existing characters’ ears. To me, the extra-long ears are a significant aspect of how a Blizzard elf is distinctive from how other fantasy IPs envision elves.

The new jewelry options — necklaces, armbands, and bracelets — are lovely. Rather than use them to permanently change any of my characters’ appearances, however, I’ll be using them on a situational basis as finishing touch accessories for outfits.

~*~*~

Kaelinda (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 3; face 8; hair style 8; hair color 4; eye color 10; earrings 9
One of my earliest alts and (if I’m remembering correctly) my first Mage. Early in her second century in age, which is young adulthood for a Blood Elf. Became friends with Kamalia when, during a chance encounter, they discovered that they shared a surname, Dawnstrider. Met and became friends with my Human Mages, Kaylynda and Kinevra, and my Draenei Mage, Kaprikka, during a disguised foray into Alliance lands shortly before the Cataclysm.
Very happy to have her eyes back to Quel’dorei blue!

Kaelydia (Alter-Ego)


skin color 5; face 2; hair style 15; hair color 2; eye color 1; earrings 11
This Alter-Ego appeared when the golden eyes were first introduced in Patch 7.3.5 and I wanted a golden-eyed Blood Elf Mage, but Kaelinda’s face wasn’t one of the three golden-eyed faces.
Now that there are the numbers to help me remember them, I’ve changed her skin tone from being the same as Kaelinda. I also gave her green instead of red earrings.

Kaelyla-AU (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 11; face 8; hair style 20; hair color 15; eye color 5; earrings 14
This is what Kaelyla looked like before the Telogrus Incident — or perhaps what she still looks like in an alternate timeway in which she never got mixed up with Magister Umbric and is still Sin’dorei.

~*~*~

Kaelyla (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 4; face 8; hair style 8; hair color 6; eye color 5; earrings 4
With Void Elves being as close as we’d ever get to Alliance High Elves (until Shadowlands, that is!), I wanted my Void Elf Mage to be as close to a counterpart appearance to Kaelinda as I could manage. When the Void Elves were first announced, I hoped that they would have an un-Void-tainted pink skin tone; they didn’t so I had to settle for what looked to my eyes like the most pinkish of the available skin tones. Now that Void Elves can also have any of the same skin tones as Blood Elves, however, I’ve decided not to change her skin tone because I’ve gotten used to the lavender. I did change her eyes to a brighter, more defined blue, though.

Khrysanthemina (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 19; face 9; hair style 3; hair color 7; eye color 7; earrings 5
This character appearance just wanted to be. She may represent the adult appearance of a yet-to-be-born daughter of Kaelyla and Ishaleron.

~*~*~

Kalaneia (Primary Alt; toon name on server)


skin color 4; face 2; hair style 14; hair color 16; eye color 5; earrings 4
A relative of Kaelinda at the “first cousins once removed” or “second cousins” level of connection. Much older than Kaelinda. Lost her husband during the Scourge attack on Eversong Woods. Had an early career as a naturalist studying the wildlife of Eversong Woods and other areas in Lordaeron; became interested in the wildlife biology of demons. Also had some skill as a Fire Mage. Her mentor was already delving deep into forbidden sorts of magic before the fall of the Sunwell; thus, she readily took to fel magic and corrupted into a Destruction Warlock.
I’ve changed her hair color from the warm silver that is available to all Blood Elves (8) to the cool silver that used to only be available to Death Knights (16). Sometimes her hair is black, but I was never quite satisfied with the blackness of the original Blood Elf black hair color (14) and so when her hair is black it will be the new, darker black (13). The original black color is now more properly thought of as a dark grey.

Kishalla (Alter-Ego)


skin color 2; face 9; hair style 11; hair color 1; eye color 4; earrings 3
Kalaneia’s daughter, estranged from her mother during her late adolescence and young adulthood due to the usual sorts of arguments about choices of career, hobbies, friends, and lovers. Thought by her mother to have been lost during the Scourge attack on Eversong Woods. Reappeared at Dreadscar Rift demanding that the Netherlord help her find her missing mentor. That both mother and daughter became Warlocks after the fall of the Sunwell has not made their relationship any less strained.
Changed her skin tone to be more sallow and her eyes to yellow-green.

~*~*~

Keliora


skin color 3; face 3; hair style 2; hair color 10; eye color 3; earrings 8
The idea of a golden-eyed, golden-haired Blood Elf Priest aligning herself with the Kyrian Covenant was irresistible, so I spent my Shadowlands pre-purchase Boost to create one. Her name is derived from “eleora”, a word in one of the Biblical languages (I forget which one) meaning “light”. After losing her husband in Archimonde’s attack on Dalaran and her children in the Scourge assault on Eversong Woods, she devoted herself to the Discipline path of walking the line between Light and Shadow. Upon discovering the fates of their souls in the Shadowlands, she finds herself quite willing to discard her mortal memories to serve the Kyrian.
I’d thought I might give her the new “tiara” style, but I’ve gotten accustomed enough to the hairstyle I chose when I created her that it just didn’t seem quite right. So I only changed her eye color, to the new softer golden hue.

Kazuligosa (new Alter-Ego)

skin color 1; face 4; hair style 23; hair color 11; eye color 10; earrings 14
Now that blue hair is no longer restricted to Death Knights and the shorter ear options exist, well, something like this was more or less inevitable. This half-elf humanoid form of a blue dragon (named after Kazul from Patricia C Wrede’s Dealing With Dragons) has to be an Alter-Ego of a Priest so that the Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Mooncloth Helm can be used to give her horns similar to those of the humanoid forms of Alexstrasza, Ysera, and Merithria.

~*~*~

Kelisanna


skin color 6; face 3; hair style 1; hair color 7; eye color 6; earrings 7
Also a relative of Kaelinda, more closely than Kalaneia. Trained as a Farstrider. Belongs to the Regent Lord’s secret service and capable of Subtlety, but prefers the toe-to-toe combat of the “Outlaw”.
I only changed her eye color, to the more blue-ish shade of green.

~*~*~

Kiralaira


skin color 10; face 5; hair style 20; hair color 5; horns 6; blindfold 6; earrings 6; tattoo 2
Kiralaira hasn’t revealed much about her past beyond stating that “the woman I was sacrificed herself to become me.”
I changed her face to make her look more forbidding.

~*~*~

Kandrista


skin color 16; face 4; hair style 9; hair color 12; eye color n/a; earrings 1
I originally created this character to be a blue-haired Blood Elf who could mimic the appearances of various blue-haired High/Blood Elf NPCs. She also looks stunning in blue plate armor, of course.
Now that the blue hair is no longer DK-exclusive, I gave her one of the DK-exclusive skin tones instead (which also changed her face).

~*~*~

Kelynaera


skin color 1; face 1; hair style 22; hair color 3; eye color 1; earrings 12
I had a Blood Elf Paladin until Cataclysm brought Tauren Paladins. I never quite stopped missing my Blood Elf Paladin, though, so when Patch 7.3.5 introduced golden eyes for Blood Elves, I just had to have a golden-eyed Blood Elf Paladin. She was one of Lady Liadrin’s earliest converts to the Blood Knights.
Changed her hair and her earrings.

~*~*~

Karolissa


skin color 12; face 3; hair style 18; hair color 13; eye color 2; earrings 11
Once I’d created Kandrista and Kelynaera, I needed a mail-wearing Blood Elf so as to have a Blood Elf for each of the armor classes.
With truer black hair and darker tan skin, now she looks like she’s always been intended to look!

~*~*~

Now that the Barbershop allows gender-swapping, some of my characters’ significant others might occasionally appear…

Ianestin


skin color 3; face 10; hair style 19; hair color 5; facial hair 13; eye color 7
Ianestin has been one of Kaelinda’s closest friends since their Academy days. A talented mathemagician, he stayed in Silvermoon City, slowly rising through the ranks of the finance bureau of the Regency and pursuing esoteric mathemagical research on the side, while Kaelinda felt herself called to the adventurer’s life. For years, Ianestin was “the boy next door” to Kaelinda, until a Nightborne artisan attempted to court her during the Suramar campaign and she realized that she would much rather be courted by her dearest male friend. Meanwhile, as Kaelinda related in droll tones her encounters with the hapless Nightborne, Ianestin realized that he was jealous of the other man.
His “before” appearance is the result of Kaelinda using a Transmorphic Tincture

Ishaleron


skin color 5; face 8; hair style 13; hair color 2; facial hair 7; eye color 5
Although Ishaleron did not share his wife’s scholarly interest in the Void at all, he was accompanying Kaelyla at Telogrus, while she observed the entities found in this shattered remnant of a world that had been completely overcome by the Void, when The Incident occurred.
His “before” appearance is the result of Kaelyla using a Transmorphic Tincture

Ishaleron-AU

skin color 14, face 8, hair style 21, hair color 13, facial hair 12, eye color 10
This is what Ishaleron looked like before the Telogrus Incident occured, or in an alternate timeway in which Kaelyla didn’t get mixed up with Magister Umbric and they are both still Sin’dorei.

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

40) Under Eternal Starlight



Blood-Cursed Shoulderpads, Ren’dorei Mantle & Gloves, Demonic Gladiator’s Silk Cord, Eternal Sarong, Willow Boots, Demonic Gladiator’s Silken Shawl, Stylish Blue Shirt, Apostle of Argus/Inkgill Blade + Ephial’s Grimoire
Kaelyla had been wearing her “Full of Stars” outfit for so long by the time she finally got through all of the Ardenweald main story quests that have nifty on-quest visuals — and dinged level 60 — that she was quite anxious for a change. This combo of shoulders, Ren’dorei chestpiece, and kilt was what she’d been wanting to wear next. Figuring out the rest of the kit, however, took a bit of iteration.

39) Lovely Faerie


Fae Revel Masque, Sprite Darter’s Flutterers, Lovely Purple Dress, Bonecaster’s Sarong, Runespeaker’s Cuffs, Kurkenstoks, Auchenai Staff
This was, of course, the natural follow-up to the previous outfit, given the usual overlap between Lunar Festival and Love is in the Air. Kaelyla will go back to her “Full of Stars” outfit when the holidays are over.

38) Festive Faerie





Fae Revel Masque, Sprite Darter’s Flutterers, Festive Purple Dress, Kurkenstoks, Staff of Haunted Memory
A combination that just needed to be. Kaelyla needed to be the one who wore it so I could show how it would look on All The Elves. I was intrigued to see some of the new customization options showing up on the transfigurations to the other Elven races — jewelry on the Blood Elf and a facial scar & leaves in the hair on the Night Elf.
The mask looks particularly fetching on the Nightborne, and would probably look fabulous with the Nightborne Heritage Armor.
Kaelyla will change back into her “Full of Stars” outfit when Lunar Festival is over.

37) Full of Stars




Ren’dorei Mantle Belt & Leggings, Popular Pupil’s Mitts, Corpse-Stitcher’s Treads, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Aluneth (default, Light’s Hope tint)
Kaelyla will choose the Night Fae because she has discovered that being in Ardenweald somehow soothes and quiets the whispers of the Void, whereas the other realms agitate them and make them harder to push away. Out-of-character, however, Kaelyla’s fate to choose the Night Fae is all about aesthetics. This outfit is intended to highlight the similarities between certain aspects of the Ren’dorei visual aesthetic and the Ardenweald/Night Fae visual aesthetic — and more specifically to coordinate with the animacone backpack that is an on-quest visual effect for the quest “Tending to Wildseeds” at the Tranquil Pools adjacent to Tirna Vaal. There are a number of other neat on-quest visuals in Ardenweald, so I took a lot of pictures of this outfit. To avoid cluttering up this listing and page too much, I’ve put them in their own post, and you can see them here: Kaelyla in Ardenweald.

36) Eternal Planeswalker



Crown of the Champion, Mantle of the Champion, Eternal Traveler Raiment, Frost-Touched Cord, Gloves of the Fallen Wizard, Archbishop’s Slippers, Crafted Cloak of War, Key to the Planes
After seeing Argus, taken by Fel, and Telogrus, taken by Void, this Champion of Azeroth will travel to any plane necessary to defend her.

35) Aura of Twilight


Mantle of Closed Doors (H), Soulcloth Vest, Sprite Darter’s Sash, Bonecaster’s Sarong, Suspicious Slippers, Chelley’s Staff of Dark Mending
When this palette swap of “Another Blue Dragon Princess” (Blood Elf Priest #7) suggested itself, I knew that Khrysanthemina needed to be the one to wear it — and not just because I already had another idea in mind for Kazuligosa.

34) Frosted Lilacs



Violet Guardian’s Corona, Mantle of the Unknowing, Leywalker Robe, Belt of the Night Sky, Wristwraps of the Grieving Prophet, Suspicious Slippers, Trident of Corrupted Waters (LFR)
This is Khrysanthemina; she looks as fabulous in this variation of an outfit I originally designed for Kaohana (Priest #56) as I thought she would.

33) Dark Phoenix



Brutal Gladiator’s Silk Cowl, Mantle of Closed Doors (H), Queen Azshara’s Dressing Gown, Belt of False Dignity, Boots of Impetuous Ideals, Moon Guard Drape, Auchenai Staff
This is another robe + shoulders combo that I saw someone else using and thought, “that is such a brilliant idea!”

32) Ley-Luxe





Valorous Frostfire Shoulderpads, Queen Azshara’s Dressing Gown, Belt of Arcane Storms (H), Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Nightborne Noble’s Cloak, Staff of Infinite Mysteries
Although I’ve used the belt of the Naxxramas Mage Tier set multiple times as an accessory piece, I never thought much of the rest of the set until recently, when it occurred to me that the shoulders of the Normal version would be great for an Azerite-inspired kit (see Human Mage #91). Then I had the thought that the shoulders of the Heroic version looked rather like the leyline crystal formations found on the Broken Isles, and that, paired with the name of the Archaeology version of the robe, led to this outfit. She’s barefoot because Queen Azshara goes barefoot (so does Thalyssra — was that some kind of status symbol among female Highborne sorceresses?).

31) Moonpriest



Moonpriest’s Vestments with Sentinel’s Branch/Crescent Wand + Urn of Lost Memories
Although I collected the Darkshore Warfront set with Kinevra, from the beginning I had in mind that it would be Kaelyla who would wear it when it was complete, because of her Kaldorei-like complexion.

Although I acquired the Heritage of the Sin’dorei a few weeks ago, I didn’t post a collection of outfits using it right away because it took me awhile to come up with ideas for how to use it with each of my Sin’dorei alts. I’ve also included the Heritage of the Ren’dorei in this collection, because with only one Ren’dorei alt, I’m not going to be making a whole set of Class-based variations on that ensemble.

Sin’dorei Sorcerer

Heritage of the Sin’dorei (robe version) with Golden Staff of the Sin’dorei
As the character who did the Heritage of the Sin’dorei questline, Kaelinda wanted to wear the whole set for just a little while before beginning to play mix-and-match with it.
I changed her title back from “Archmage” to “of Silvermoon” while wearing this ensemble, too.

Sin’dorei Smasher

Heritage of the Sin’dorei (tunic version) with Hammer of the Penitent
Before Kandrista’s hair was blue, it was golden.

Sin’dorei Summoner

Heritage of the Sin’dorei with Cindercloth Vest, Gloves of Tyri’s Power, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6), Athame of the Sanguine Ritual (LFR), and Book of Highborne Hymns
The Cindercloth Vest is a natural mix-and-match for the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor. So is the first upgraded appearance of the Shroud of Resolve. The set gloves, while very showy, are also very bulky; I wanted something slimmer for this ensemble.

Sin’dorei Striker

Heritage of the Sin’dorei with Felforged Chestplate, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Clasp of Meditation, Blood Knight Tabard, and Blood-Tempered Ranseur*
The Sin’dorei chestpiece has a dimensional piece that displays over a tabard, so I had to swap it out to be able to use the Blood Knight tabard in this kit. The polearm is a legacy item from before Cataclysm.

Sin’dorei Swiftblade

Bloody Bandanna, Heritage of the Sin’dorei Pauldrons Leggings & Slippers, Cephalohide Jacket, Felshroud Belt & Gloves, The Sunbreaker
I got this Mythic coloration of the chestpiece of the Kul Tiras leather dungeon set from a lucky roll on an Azerite Armor 445 World Quest. It seemed like it would be a perfect fit for playing mix-and-match with the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor.

Sin’dorei Sharpshooter

Heritage of the Sin’dorei with Crown of Flame (N), Khan’s Chestpiece, Dreadmire Legguards, and Thas’dorah (upgraded, 3rd tint?)
There are other Sin’dorei-themed bows (Skyfire Hawk-Bow and Sunfury Bow of the Phoenix), which I would have used if there hadn’t been a red tint of Thas’dorah.

Sin’dorei Slayer

Primalstorm Breastplate, Taut Halyard Waistband, Heritage of the Sin’dorei Leggings & Gauntlets, Fearless Gladiator’s Felskin Boots, Twinblades of the Deceiver (default, first tint)
I almost used a different pair of gloves and had only the leggings of the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor in this set, but I decided that I really ought to have at least two pieces of the Heritage Armor in the kit for it to count as a “Heritage Armor” outfit. Although I really like the small set shoes for everything else I’ve done with the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor, for this outfit, I kind of wished that there were also big bulky showy boots that matched the design of the gloves.

Ren’dorei Ritualist




Heritage of the Ren’dorei with Purpleheart Wand + Ledger of Revolting Rituals (H)
Although it looks the void wings are attached to the pauldrons, they’re actually attached to the chestpiece.
The last picture also includes the Ren’dorei Tabard.

~*~*~

Heritage of the Sin’dorei/Ren’dorei outfits created after the original date of this post and added to it to keep all of my Heritage of the Sin’dorei/Ren’dorei kits in one easily-searchable location

~*~*~

Sin’dorei Soulguide

Heritage of the Sin’dorei with Demonic Gladiator’s Satin Hood, Girdle of Prophecy, Pantaloons of Growing Strife, Boots of Prophecy, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6), and Rod of the Blazing Light
I used the Sin’dorei Leggings with a different chestpiece for my Warlock (#66), so I decided to use the Sin’dorei Tunic with different pants for my Priest. Instead of finding slimmer gloves, like I did with my Warlock, I found some bulkier boots.

Silvermoon Resplendent

Resplendent Circlet, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt Gauntlets & Slippers, Silvermoon Robes, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6), Felo’melorn (upgraded, first tint)
But of course this was the robe that Kaelinda would choose first to mix-and-match with the Sin’dorei Heritage Armor.

Sin’dorei Scarlet

Whitemane’s Chapeau, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt & Slippers, Scarlet Sin’dorei Robes, Shroud of Resolve (rank 6), Light’s Wrath (hidden, default tint)
This outfit is similar to Kaohana’s “Crimson Pilgrim” kit (Priest #71), with Sin’dorei Heritage items replacing the accessory pieces.

Goldensun

Heritage of the Sin’dorei with Nightvale Cowl, Hidden chestpiece, Silvermoon Doublet, Grom’tor’s Bloodied Bandage, Mantle of Silvermoon, and Felo’melorn (default, first tint)
The dimensional piece of the Sin’dorei chestpiece displays over tabards, so to make a kit with the Silvermoon Tabard, I needed to Hide it. I ended up using the Silvermoon Doublet instead, however, because it looks exactly like the Silvermoon Tabard with the Scarlet Filigreed Shirt worn underneath, only without the awkward lower flap of the tabard.
The headpiece prompted the name I gave this kit; I find it amusing that the Quel’dorei exiles who fled to the eastern continent named their city “Silvermoon”, only to turn away from the night and the silver moon toward the day and the golden sun.

~*~*~

Sin’Venthyr



Sin’dorei Helm & Tunic, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Mantle Leggings & Slippers, Corpse-Stitcher’s Cord, Primal Combatant’s Gloves of Prowess, Shadowfeather Shawl, Gilded Sineater’s Staff
A first go at mashing up the Heritage of the Sin’dorei and Venthyr Renown armor sets.
My Blood Elf Paladin is currently wearing this hat with this hairstyle, and they just suit each other so well. Using this hairstyle was too much of a change for Kaelinda, however. It works for Kaelydia, though — maybe because she has golden eyes, like the Paladin?

Sin’Venthyr II


Crown of the Champion, Sin’dorei Pauldrons Belt & Slippers, Soulbreaker’s Crimson Vestments, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Mantle of Crimson Blades, House Renathal Ceremonial Dagger + Red Crane Scepter

Sin’Venthyr III


Harvester’s Court Attire with Sin’dorei Pauldrons Gauntlets & Cloak and Rod of the Blazing Light

~*~*~

Full of Stars

Ren’dorei Mantle Belt & Leggings, Popular Pupil’s Mitts, Corpse-Stitcher’s Treads, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Aluneth (default, Light’s Hope tint)
Kaelyla will choose the Night Fae because she has discovered that being in Ardenweald somehow soothes and quiets the whispers of the Void, whereas the other realms agitate them and make them harder to push away. Out-of-character, however, Kaelyla’s fate to choose the Night Fae is all about aesthetics. This outfit is intended to highlight the similarities between certain aspects of the Ren’dorei visual aesthetic and the Ardenweald/Night Fae visual aesthetic.

Under Eternal Starlight



Blood-Cursed Shoulderpads, Ren’dorei Mantle & Gloves, Demonic Gladiator’s Silk Cord, Eternal Sarong, Willow Boots, Demonic Gladiator’s Silken Shawl, Stylish Blue Shirt, Apostle of Argus/Inkgill Blade + Ephial’s Grimoire
Kaelyla had been wearing her “Full of Stars” outfit for so long by the time she finally got through all of the Ardenweald main story quests that have nifty on-quest visuals — and dinged level 60 — that she was quite anxious for a change. This combo of shoulders, Ren’dorei chestpiece, and kilt was what she’d been wanting to wear next. Figuring out the rest of the kit, however, took a bit of iteration.

Stars’ Grace



Vestia’s Pauldrons of Inner Grace, Ren’dorei Mantle & Belt, Bonecaster’s Sarong, Gloves of Penitence, Willow Boots, Periwinkle Cloak, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Starshard Edge + Decanter of Distilled Shadows

~*~*~

This series of posts began because I set myself a goal to document new Transmogrification outfits in a more timely fashion. As soon as I create a new outfit, I write it up in a draft post. As the weekend approaches, I start working on taking fashion screenshots, processing them, and updating “Things my [Class] Wears” posts. On Sunday — though not every Sunday — I publish the collection of my recent efforts. Then I begin the next “Sunday on the Promenade” draft post.


Occasionally, I have ideas for themed Transmogrification collections that take several months to completely assemble. Thus, some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of such a themed Transmogrification collection.

How I entertained myself during the college meeting I attended yesterday. I drew the lineart during the meeting, at any rate; I did the colors (Crayola colored pencil) that night at home.


After I drew these two, I thought that their proportions weren’t quite chibi enough, so I tried again.
I did Kaelinda first, then Kaelydia, then the others from right to left.


Kaelyla, Kishalla, Kalaneia, Kaelinda, Kaelydia

Transmog Pop Quiz: Can you identify the robe that each of these characters is wearing?

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.

Alas, it was wishful thinking that misread the notes about the Echoes of Ny’alotha update to mean that if one character on an account got a rank 1 Shroud of Resolve, all characters would then be able to resume collecting Echoes of Ny’alotha.

Kinevra, Kaelinda, Kalaneia, and Kerisa have now completed “Beginning the Descent” and obtained their rank 1 Shrouds of Resolve. Kinevra has all of her rank 3 Essences; the others can now continue to gather Echoes of Ny’alotha to get the one or two Essences they still need. At some point, I’ll need to run each of them through the rest of the 8.3 questline, so they can cleanse Corrupted items and to decide which of them will take on the task of running Horrific Visions to get the rank 5 appearance for the Shroud of Resolve.

Some other things I still want to do before the Shadowlands pre-launch events begin —
* 7.1 Alliance War Campaign
* Pride of Kul Tiras questline
* recruit Kul Tirans
* Heritage of the Sin’dorei questline
* go back to Broken Isles with Kinevra to finish Order Hall campaign & get Archmage title

Kamalia hadn’t quite finished getting the Mechagon stuff she needed to buy the rank 3 Purification Protocol when the Echoes of Ny’alotha changes came out a couple of weeks ago. She’s now finished that, so bye-bye Mechagon — for good this time!

Kamalia and Karaelia are now retired, more-or-less. Kam will still go out to do Emissaries when the reward is 2K gold, and she’ll send her minions on money missions, but that’s all. I haven’t gotten the Shroud of Resolve with either of them, and I’m not sure if I will.

I’ve been ticking off Mogging goals, too —
* Kinevra & Kaelinda got all that I wanted out of Eternal Palace LFR
* between them, the three cloth wearers collected the Normal Zuldazar cloth dungeon set
* Kerisa got the partial recolor of the Kul Tiras leather dungeon set that comes from reputations and Heroic Mechagon
* Kinevra farmed enough more Seafarers Doubloons to get the other two colors of the Tricorne Hat

Here’s the Mogging stuff I still want to do:
* clothies run Heroic Kul Tiras dungeons to collect that armor set
* clothies LFR Uldir to collect that set
* LFR first and second wings of Dazar’alor to get Phoenixfire Staff and crown from Opulence
* Kinevra farm Darkshore Warfront when it’s up to finish collecting Moonpriest set (just robes & gloves to go!) and get the Sentinel’s Branch staff

~*~*~

And then, of course, I’ll want to level Void Elf Mage, Highmountain Tauren Druid, and Kul Tiran Mage to 120 to get their Heritage Armors. Kaelyla (Void Elf) will also need to get her rank 1 Shroud of Resolve and rank 3 Essences so that she’ll be ready to go to Shadowlands, too; the others may or may not, depending on how much of the rest of my to-do list is still unfinished when they get to level 120.

Blizzard has just announced that in Shadowlands. not only will Blood & Void Elves be able to have blue eyes, Void Elves will be able to have human-like (ie, palest pink to deepest brown range) skin tones!
I’m pretty excited about this 😀

Kaelinda will change her eyes to blue.
I will also change Kaelyla’s eyes to blue; the silver doesn’t really work for me (and is one of the reasons why I have a hard time connecting with my Draenei, Night Elf, and Nightborne alts, as well).
I’ve begun to get used to Kaelyla’s lavender skin, so I might only change her skin to pink when she is wearing outfits that represent her backstory — things she did before the Telogrus Rift Incident.

I haven’t commented yet on the recent preview of new hairstyles, ear lengths, and necklaces for female Blood Elves, so now is as good a time as any.
*The longest of the ear lengths shown appears to be the current ear length. I like the long, long ears as a distinctive marker of Blizzard’s interpretation of Elves, so I’m unlikely to change my characters’ ears.
*I’m most likely to use the necklaces and new earrings on a situational basis, when they are the perfect finishing touch for an outfit that I’m designing, rather than as a permanent change to any of my characters’ apperances.
*I love all three of the new hairstyles! The pixie cut is cuter than any of the current super-short styles, the queen style is stunningly gorgeous, and the femme Lor’themar style is about time. I’ll probably also use these on a situational basis, to complement an outfit — though the femme Lor’themar just might become my Blood Elf Paladin’s new default style.
