I am not sure whether to be jealous that they get a High Arakkoa-like form, or to be horrified by how it looks like a bizarre hybrid of High Arakkoa, Falcosaur, and Elekk…

Kerisa leveled to 80 with BTH’s only male Tauren character, a Warrior named Watha*. I imagined them as a betrothed couple. They were wed at the end of the Northrend campaign, after the defeat of the Lich King and shortly before the beginning of the Cataclysm. Their daughter was born a little bit over a year later, in the Grove of Aessina on the slopes of Mount Hyjal .

This dress is based on a Lakota/Cherokee woman’s dress from around 1825, and the baby carrier is based on one made by the Dakota around 1840.

Perhaps because her mother spent so much time in Moonkin form while she was in utero**, Kerisa’s daughter has displayed a remarkable affinity for Moonkin form herself. She began attempting the transformation almost as soon as she could walk. Kerisa was shocked, then astonished, then delighted the first time she saw her daughter toddling around with feathered arms.

For the background, imagine the interior of a Pandaren inn, with Watha sitting on the side of one of those oval Pandaren couch-beds

The child had mastered the shapeshift by the time she was four***. When Kerisa arrived at the Dreamgrove, she was profoundly relieved to discover that other Druids’ children are similarly affected — and her daughter hooted with glee when she was introduced to the Moonkin School.

One afternoon, Kerisa’s daughter came home from Moonkin School with a parchment from Taronn Redfeather announcing that the next week, he would be taking the children on a field trip to the Moonkin Festival in Moonglade. Interested parents were also invited to attend.

Kerisa was surprised. In her years of studying moonkin, she’d learned that every four years or so, the moonkin tribes of Kalimdor gathered in Moonglade for an event that seemed somewhat similar to the Orcs of Draenor’s Kosh’harg. As a courtesy to the moonkin, the leaders of Nighthaven always closed Moonglade to all others for the two or three days of the event. Even Druids who took Moonkin form as their preferred shapeshift weren’t allowed. What had changed?

“The Legion”, said Taronn simply, when she inquired. Then he elaborated. “As this is now the third time the Legion has encroached upon this world in force, the moonkin tribes have concluded that they need to encourage friendly relations between their hatchlings and other peoples. They want the other peoples of Azeroth to see their people — not just Druids who emulate their form and powers — as helpful allies. Therefore, they are opening one day only of the gathering to the other races. From what I understood, this part of the gathering, this cultural exchange event for the hatchlings, will be held annually from now on — though the rest of the festivities will continue to be held only every fourth year.”

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

50) Stormcrow Smash

Shoulderpads of the Forgotten Gate (N), Preened Ironfeather Breastplate, Belt of Fierce Competition, Kilt of the Forgotten One, Oilrag Handwraps* + Storming Vortex Bracers, Hammer of the Sporelings
I had a hard time finding shoulders for this combination of chestpiece and kilt. When I first tried these, I liked how their color coordinated, and I liked their general shape, but I wasn’t completely sold on the hawk-head details. After much comparison with other options, I finally returned to these as the ones I liked best.
Looking for a weapon after the armor was assembled, this 2H mallet seemed the most fitting; from the shape of the shoulders and the weapon comes the name I gave to the outfit.

49) Lunar Efflorescence

Crown of Courage, Cenarion Spaulders, Festive Green Dress, Rope-Grip Gloves, Staff of the Verdant Circle
I used this combination (with the antlers that match the shoulders) as an RP-wear outfit for Lunar Festival in previous years, before the holiday clothes were Moggable.
Moonglade is THE location for the Lunar Festival, of course — but the lighting there is terrible!

48) Wedding at the Well

Crown of Courage, Spring Robes, Wound Dressing, Spring Flowers
A well might be a traditional location for a Tauren wedding — for a migratory or semi-nomadic people, a good well might become an anchoring location for their journeys, a resting place, and a gathering place where different tribes would meet and trade.
Unfortunately, my ideal Tauren bridal attire isn’t truly Moggable — the Crown of Courage can only be Mogged during Lunar Festival, and the Spring Robes can only be Mogged during Noblegarden. At other times, the actual items must be equipped. Despite this outfit not being a true Transmogrification, I wanted to post it here anyway because this is what Kerisa wore for her wedding, which took place between the end of Wrath of the Lich King and the beginning of Cataclysm.

47) The White Stag II

Ghostwalker set with Moonrage Girdle and Ravenbear Disguise
The Ravenbear Disguise grants the white leaf shoulders coveted by every Druid since their first meeting with Morthis Whisperwing in Zangarmarsh.
Without the Ravenbear Disguise, this kit could also be used with the Ghostwalker shoulders and Crown of the Forest Lord.
The Moonrage Girdle fits so perfectly with this fur-trimmed white leather gear that it almost seems like it was made to go with it.

46) The White Stag

Crown of the Forest Lord, Pauldrons of Malorne, Boneshredder Jerkin, Moss Cinch, Jinxed Hoodoo Kilt, Ghostwalker Gloves, Conifer Cone Staff
This outfit was designed for me by Erinys. It represents Malorne, or Apa’ro, as he is known to the Tauren, based on this text from the fourth of the Shu’halo creation myths:
This tale speaks of how the Earthmother gave the Shu’halo the love of the hunt. The Tauren became great hunters, but one spirit eluded them, Apa’ro, the white stag (called Malorne by the Night Elves.) The Tauren hunted Apa’ro to the ends of Azeroth, and finally the stag fled into the heavens. where his great antlers became tangled in the starts. As the moon, (Mu’sha) chased her brother across the skies, she saw the helpless stag, and immediately fell in love with him.
Because I couldn’t use the Conifer Cone Staff in the Earthmother kit, I decided to use it in the Malorne kit, instead. Then this belt seemed like a good addition, to pull in a little bit more of that orange from the eye in the staff. I felt like this Malorne-themed kit should have something from the Druid tier set named for Malorne, so I’ve put in those shoulders.

45) Chieftain’s Pride

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Chieftain’s Shoulders & Gloves, Pridelord Armor, Supreme Sash, Warchief Kilt*, Shadow Wing Focus Staff
For a Druid, these Classic armor items were the obvious choice to complement the 13th Anniversary shades.

44) Guardian of Cenarius and G’Hanir

Cenarion Raiment with Belt of Cheapened Lives, Cloak of Enthralling Darkness, and Wildfury Greatstaff
The Cenarion belt has always seemed too bright, somehow. I like the overall effect better with this darker belt.

43) Heart of Thunder

Thunderheart helm shoulders & gloves, Canyon Runner’s Vest, Mighty Girdle, Leggings of the Immortal Night, Naturewarden’s Treads, Wisdom of Dionor, Origin of Nightmares
Though it drops in Naxxramas, this staff has always seemed to me like it was made to go with the Druid Black Temple set. I’m not particularly fond of the torso part of the chestpiece of that set, however, so after a bit of fiddling around with chestpieces and leggings, I settled upon this combination.

42) Malorne’s Nightmare

Gladiator’s Dragonhide Armor with Cloak of the Untamed Predator and Crimson Steel/Dagger of the Horde Vanguard/Shadow Wing Focus Staff/Funeral Pyre (H)
After doing the main storyline of Val’sharah twelve times to collect the Tears of Elune and unlock the “acquire a Pillar of Creation” Artifact tint with each class, I felt inspired to create a set of Nightmare-touched Transmogrification kits.
This Druid-specific kit was way too obvious and appropriate an idea to pass up.
If you’re capable of raiding Heroic or Mythic Emerald Nightmare — and you get very lucky — then of course you should sub in the The First Satyr’s Spaulders.
Fist weapons for Guardian; daggers for Feral; Shadow Wing Focus Staff for Balance; and Funeral Pyre for Resto. I like Funeral Pyre for Resto because it looks sort of like the twisted, cracked, glowing corrupted roots of Shaladrassil. The Talon Guard Staff would also be a good choice for the Resto version of this kit.

41) Morrowgrain Researcher

Straw Hat, Spore-Covered Tunic, Tree Warden’s Belt, Ranger Pants, Gloves of the Pathfinder, Swift Cenarion Footwear, Garden Scythe
When I found out that the Balance Artifact weapon would be a scythe, I started saving up my Draenic Seeds to get the Garden Scythe to Transmogrify it with.

40) Barkskin

Eternal Blossom Shoulderwraps, Robes of Eighty Lights, Thatch Eave Vines, Ranger Gloves
The bark-and-fur look of this armor nicely complements the appearance of the Claws of Ursoc, and the colors perfectly complement the Fangs of Ashamane.
I am quite amused by how the Hood of Stilled Winds that is part of this set looks like a bear mask —

— but I like seeing my characters’ faces too much to actually ever wear it.
Although I did play Kerisa as herself to collect the Guardian Artifact, she’s never been really comfortable with being a bear. So for this Guardian spec kit, I’ve given her the alter-ego appearance of my secondary Druid, Kaiuna, who was created to play with the melee Druid specs.

39) Golden Feathers

Chieftain’s Headdress, Passive Resistor Spaulders (H), Vest of Forceful Fury, Belt of Hidden Keys, Woundseal Leggings, Hydrolance Gloves (H), Kafa Leather Boots, Drape of Icy Intent, Giorgio’s Caduceus of Pure Moods (LFR)
These shoulders with molting golden feathers and this staff with molting golden feathers just needed to be used together.
Using a muted blue cued from the vest and darker brown tones in the bottom half of the kit keeps the focus on those beautiful golden feathers in the top half.

38) Overgrowth Tender

Mantle of Gnarled Overgrowth, Shaladrassil Tunic, Overgrowth Cutter Belt, Giant-Friend Kilt, Master Brewer’s Gloves, Kihrawr’s Scratching Post
I was looking for a chestpiece to wear with this matching kilt & shoulders from Northrend that wasn’t the set chestpiece; I was looking for something to wear with this chestpiece that wasn’t the rest of its set. I noticed the perfect congruence of the colors and voila! I love it when an outfit comes together this neatly.

37) Genesis Wave

Tracker’s Headband, Cenarion Spaulders, Genesis Vest & Boots, Archer’s Belt, Forest Leather Pants, Wasphide Gauntlets, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Staff of the Verdant Circle
I came up with this concept while working on some pink outfit ideas for Navimie and thought that it would be quite appropriate for Noblegarden. Because the chestpiece and boots were already Druid-specfic, I decided to go ahead and use these Druid-specific shoulders, too.

36) Navispam

Guise of the Tidal Lurker, Hateful Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Shroud of Nature’s Harmony, Orgrimmar Belt, Giant-Friend Kilt, Thunderlord Gloves, Stolen Idra’kess Drape, Green Workman’s Shirt, Thunder Eagle Staff
The core concept of this kit — hat, shoulders, chestpiece, kilt — is borrowed from an outfit that Navimie wore for a very long time which I always admired.

35) Deep Earth, Dark Heart

Savage Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Deep Earth Vestment (H), Master Brewer’s Gloves, Rapture
There isn’t much true pink in leather — lots of reds and purples, and some of them are pink-ish, but true pink really only shows up as an accent color. The decorations on this robe hover on the boundary of pink and red.
I didn’t think I’d use the “hide belt” Transmogrification feature introduced in Patch 7.1.5 very often, but this is now the second outfit in a row for Kerisa for which I’ve used it.

34) Songbird

Songbird Blouse, Luminary Kilt, Rope-Grip Gloves, Pillar of Ferocity
The simple, shirt-like appearance of this chestpiece wanted a very simple outfit to go with it. I was glad to be able to find in my collection some bare-hand gloves that also fit under the belled sleeves. If I were making this kit with a race that wears shoes, I’d probably use the Sandals of the Insurgent.

33) Springrain Armor

The Springrain set is the gear that a Druid is shown wearing on the new character selection screen. It is obtained in-game from the Warlords Garrison Salvage Yard.
I am fascinated by this strange Tauren statue that I found in the Karazhan Catacombs while doing the Balance Artifact quest. Where did this come from? From the style of dress, might this be the Earthmother as envisioned by the Yaungol?

32) Frostwolf of Wor’Gol

Battlegear of the Frostwolves with Wolf Hunter’s Guise, Frostwolf tabard and Talon Guard Glaive
Relative to the Alterac Valley Frostwolves, are the Draenor Frostwolves the “old” Frostwolves or the “new” Frostwolves?
I like Yrel a lot, but Draka is my favorite.

31) Frostwolf Envoy

Ghostwalker Pads & Gloves, any sleeveless chestpiece, Moonrage Girdle, T’chali’s Kilt, Frostwolf Battle Tabard, Talon Guard Glaive
This kit mimics the appearance of the Frostwolf Envoy NPCs who used to appear in capital cities when the bonus battleground of the week was Alterac Valley.

30) Bad Juju

Big Voodoo Mask, Ravenwing Pauldrons, Flamestrider Robes, Felshroud Belt, Ironpelt Leggings, Botanist’s Gloves of Growth, Orange Martial Shirt, Kyparitic Staff
This kit is Hallow’s End-ish mostly by virtue of its orange-black-and-green color scheme. A partially similar outfit could be made in cloth with the Silksand Wraps and Bad Mojo Mask.

29) Talon Queen

Conqueror’s Nightsong Cover, Heroes’ Dreamwalker Mantle, Cranefeather Jerkin & Britches, Supple Waistguard (3-670), Runic Leather Gauntlets, Moonstrider Boots, Arakkoa Outcasts Tabard, Etched-Blade Warstaff (3-660)
The decorations on the staff reminded me of arakkoa sigils, so the appropriate tabard went on next. The rest of the kit developed from there.
Cover of the Keepers is a lookalike of the hat. I generally try to shy away from class-specific items in these types of sets, but the Druid T7 shoulders were just too perfect to pass up. Monks (or Rogues, using different weapons) might want to try the Dark Leather Shoulders. The Cranefeather items are the Agility spec conversion of the Timeless Isle leather tokens. The boots have bright blue toes on races that wear shoes, so characters of shoe-wearing races might want to find different boots.
Savage Blood required: 60

28) Fanghunter

Headhunter’s Spaulders Mitts & Slippers, Armor of the Fang, Belt of the Fang, Leggings of the Fang, Golden Iron Destroyer
A simple combination of two classic purple and yellow leather sets, dressed up with an elegant mace.

27) Jungle Chronicler

Shoulders of the Roiling Inferno (LFR), Sunglow Vest, Dragonmaw Emergency Strap (LFR), Breeches of Natural Aggression, Shardtooth Gloves, Zangarra Scepter, Sunsworn Transcription
I love it when items from different raid tiers synergize to make a combo even better than either kit alone. Case in point, the green Sunwell leather set is beautiful as-is, but I love how it looks with these items from Siege of Orgrimmar.
I’m definitely among those who were deeply disappointed that we didn’t get to go to Farahlon in Warlords. Was the original Farahlon biome really a Gorgrond-like jungle, or is that a byproduct of the Ethereal eco-dome technology? Would this pond in the middle of Eco-Dome Midrealm have been a botani grove? What about the fabled Plains of Farahlon — would they have looked like the Draenor version of Shadowmoon Valley, only sunnier? sigh…

26) Sinister Squashling

Keeper’s Mantle, Gypsy Tunic & Trousers, Deviate Scale Belt, Forest Leather Gloves & Boots, Sower’s Cloak*, Staff of the Green Circle
Kaiuna has so much green in her wardrobe that I’ve barely begun to explore all the possible permutations.
Once upon a time, the Hallowed Helm was introduced as a cloth item so that everyone could wear it. Nowadays, I think that it really ought to be upgraded to a Cosmetic item so that everyone can Mog it. Using a Weighted Jack-o’-Lantern gives the same effect, albeit only temporarily.

25) Mystical Mistletoe

Supple Shoulderguards Waistguard & Gloves (all 1-640), Jinxed Hoodoo Skin & Kilt, Garden Sickle/Miniature Winter Veil Tree, Purehearted Cricket Cage (LFR)
Anyone who grew up reading Asterix the Gaul knows that the proper weapon of a Druid is a sickle — for collecting mistletoe, of course!
While I was collecting enough Draenic Seeds to buy the Garden Sickle, I used the Miniature Winter Veil Tree with this kit. Using the sickle seems like a small change, but it makes a big difference — at least to me — in how “druidy” the overall effect of the kit appears.
The combination of the recolored Druid T1 antlers with the Jinxed Hoodoo items has always been popular, for obvious reasons. I feel like I’ve seen the combination of the stage 1 Warlords crafted leather items with the Jinxed Hoodoo items somewhere before, but I can’t remember where or when.
Savage Blood required: 0

24) Har’koa’s Kitten

Shrug of Disappointment, Vest of Restraint, Aquarius Belt*/Clefthoof Belt, Rugged Leather Pants, Ghostwalker gloves & boots, Goblin Smasher
I originally designed this kit a little over two years ago for the first round of JD Kenada’s “Transmogrification Survivor” contest, for which the prompt was “Disciples of Har’koa”.
It took awhile for me to figure out the best way to get my level 54 Feral Druid up to Zul’Drak, a zone 20 levels too high for her health & safety, to take the screenshots. Many many many thanks to Plaid for flying me out there on her Touring Rocket, and to Matty for her offer to help, too!

23) Hoodoo Cricket

Self-Reflecting Mask, Runetotem’s Mantle of Conquest, Jinxed Hoodoo Skin & Kilt, Hurricane Belt, Cenarion Gloves, Miniature Winter Veil Tree, Purehearted Cricket Cage
One of my goals during Mists of Pandaria was to heal in LFR with a character of every healing class. I achieved that goal, with a healer of each class who completed at least Terrace of Endless Spring from T14, all of Throne of Thunder, and Siege of Orgrimmar through the Sha of Pride. The very charming Purehearted Cricket Cage drops from the second boss in the Vale of Eternal Sorrows opening wing of the Siege of Orgrimmar.
This outfit is based on Zazzy’s grand-prize-winning final round entry for JD Kenada’s Amazing Transmog Survivor competition. Kerisa already had the shoulders, chestpiece, and kilt of Zazzy’s kit — though as a Druid, she of course could not use the same belt.

22) Roiling Gardens

Shoulders of the Roiling Inferno, Blessed Elunite Coverings, Dragonmaw Emergency Strap, Giant-Friend Kilt, Marshseeker Gloves, Staff of the Verdant Circle
The inspiration for this outfit began with the “Garden of Eden” kits I designed to use the T16-LFR Druid shoulders & belt. Instead of farming for any of the chestpiece & leggings combinations I suggested in that post, however, I elected to use a kilt that I already had and a JP-purchase tunic that I’d been looking for an excuse to buy anyway.

21) Tainted Forest

Mushan Hide Helm, Mantle of the Eternal Sentinel, Robes of Treacherous Ground (LFR), Firescar Sash, Gilt-Edged Leather Gauntlets, Druidic Channeler’s Mace, Telestra’s Journal
A “Dark Druid” outfit that would probably look better on a Worgen than on any of the other Druidic races.
The T12 Obsidian Arborweave set was not at all to my taste, but I thought the belt looked kind of cool, so I hung onto it for possible use in some other sort of “Dark Druid” kit. I’m glad I did, because it works perfectly with the T15-LFR robe.
The T15 shoulders, however, are entirely too creepy for me. If that nest on the right shoulder housed a mouse or a bat or a little bitty owl or a crow or even a snake, I’d be okay with it, but a spider?

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

20) Sun, Moon, and Stars II

Valorous Nightsong Cover, Hide of Chromaggus, Starry Robes of the Crescent, Belt of Never-Ending Agony, Stormrider’s Gloves (T11 Normal), Starshard Edge, Shomi’s Fan
An iteration of a previous outfit, now that I’ve finally got the helm and shoulders I wanted to use, but didn’t yet have, when I made the first version.

19) Rain Poppy

Valorous Nightsong Cover, Contender’s Leather shoulders & belt, Robes of Summer Flame, Marshseeker Gloves, Rain Poppy Staff
I borrowed this lovely kit from Erinys’ Worgen Druid, Mentzelia, who I hope will indeed succeed in getting to level 90 and wearing this outfit herself before Warlords launches.

18) Crossroads Guard

Sentinel set with Chieftain’s shoulders
This outfit is worn by Horde Guards throughout the Northern Barrens. Swapping out the ochre Chieftain’s shoulders for the red Cutthroat shoulders changes this outfit to match the Orgrimmar guards.
Although the Grinning Axe is the closest match to the NPC weapon, no leather-wearing classes can use 2H axes. Rogues might want to dual-wield simple 1H axes, Druids might want to use the Icier Barbed Spear, and Monks could do either.

17) Evergreen

Preened Tribal War Feathers/Cenarion Helm, Darkbrand shoulders, Ymirjar Physician’s Robe, Feral Cord/Sentinel Girdle, Bark-Gloves of Ancient Wisdom, Conifer Cone Staff/Miniature Winter Veil Tree + Blossom of the Earthen Ring
I love the pinecone-like look of these Cataclysm-era leather shoulders — they are just perfect for a Druid!

16) Shado-Pan Wildshaper

Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Thunderheart Shoulder Pads/Darkbrand shoulders, Robes of Summer Flame, Vicious Leather Belt, Gilt-Edged Leather Gauntlets, Tian Monastic Staff
I decided pretty much immediately that I wanted to use this robe for my Druid’s Shado-Pan kit. Figuring out all the rest of the pieces, though, took quite a bit of iteration.
I don’t remember if I was offered the +Agi staff as a reward option from that Tian Monastery quest or if I had to switch my loot spec to see it. Whatever happened, I thought that the +Agi staff would have better Transmogrification potential with the rest of my Druid’s wardrobe than any of the +Int options — and I’d surely get a better weapon from some other quest later. So I took it, and now I am quite glad that I did.

15) Starshard

Crown of the Forest Lord, Hide of Chromaggus, Starsight Tunic, Thatch Eave Vines, Gylphed leggings, Stormrider’s Gloves, Moonstrider Boots, Starshard Edge, Shomi’s Fan, August Celestials Tabard
For a character I logged onto at least semi-regularly, Kerisa wore this outfit for an exceptionally long time. I created it when she was fortunate enough to win the dagger during Cymre’s Val’anyr completion runs — and I didn’t want to let her change her Transmogrification kit until I’d made the fashion post about it.

14) Bluebird of Happiness

Raven-Heart Headdress, Hide of Chromaggus, Polar Vest & Boots, Clefthoof belt, Stormrider’s leggings & gloves (N), Cloak of Cheerful Flowers
Kerisa longed for the Druid T11 shoulders from the first moment she saw them in early Cataclysm. I was too slow in getting her leveled and geared to raid, however, and she only saw the T11 shoulder token drop once before Firelands debuted. At that time, she passed on the token in deference to the Resto Druid leader of my guild’s alt run, saying that the raid leader deserved it more. Later, I selfishly wished I’d rolled on it normally. During Cataclysm, the BoE lookalike shoulders occasionally showed up on the AH, but I never felt like I could afford them. After Mists began, it was several months before I saw the BoE shoulders on the AH again — at which point I snapped them up just as fast as I could. Now, Kerisa is jumping for joy to finally, finally have these gorgeous shoulders.

13) Bluffwatcher

Feral set with Ranger Shoulders and Scaled Leather Bracers
The outfit of the Thunder Bluff guards is one of the easiest to replicate. The NPC belt is unavailable, and the Wolf Rider belt is a bit closer style match than the Feral belt. No leather-wearing classes can use 2H axes; Rogues might want to dual-wield simple 1H axes, Druids might want to use the Icier Barbed Spear, and Monks could do either.

12) Woodland Blossom

Preened Ironfeather Shoulders, Dervish chestpiece & leggings, Headhunter’s belt gloves & boots, Willow Cape, Bright Yellow Shirt
The pale pink stripe down the center of the shirtfront is the perfect finishing touch for this spring outfit.

11) Mistspray

Pauldrons of Malorne (T4), Jinxed Hoodoo Skin, Imposing Belt, Mistspray Kilt*, Cenarion Gloves (T1), Misthide Drape, Rapture
The Spring Gatherer says, “I’m not certain what form of magic was used in the creation of the eggs, and the druids aren’t keen on explaining it to me.”
This unique two-toned look is created using a kilt that vanished in the Shattering. If you don’t have one, use the Jinxed Hoodoo Kilt that matches the tunic.
I chose these gloves because they match Kerisa’s tan fur color so well that she almost looks like she’s not wearing gloves at all. Another character might want different gloves.

Navimie asked me for some help with a pink leather outfit.

The problem is, there isn’t much genuine pink available in leather. There’s lots of red and purple, and some of the reds are pink-ish, but true pinks only appear as an accent color.

The prettiest shades of pink show up in the Genesis Vest Trousers & Boots and Wasphide Gauntlets from AQ40, shown here with the Wild Growth Spaulders, Archer’s Belt, and Staff of the Verdant Circle. The pinks in this armor are really truly pink, but eurgh!, the pattern!

The pants are the worst; the rest of the items might be tolerably worn with the Earthsoul Britches, Haramad’s Leggings of the Third Coin, or the Forest Leather Pants.

The Deep Earth Raiment from Heroic Dragonsoul has, um, mushrooms? I think? that are more pink than red, at least to my eye. This very simple outfit uses the Heroic Deep Earth Raiment with the Savage Gladiator’s Wyrmhide Spaulders, Master Brewer’s Gloves, a hidden belt, and Rapture.

The shoulder armor could be hidden, too, so that it doesn’t obscure the really rather pretty pattern around the shoulders of the robe. Here the pink looks more like berries than like mushrooms.

The Vest of the Glowing Crescent from Ulduar 10 is more red than pink, but it’s a pink enough red that perhaps we can work with it. Here I’ve combined it with the Otherworldly Mantle from Emerald Nightmare — I think this is the LFR version, though I’m not completely certain — Emblazoned Leggings, Runesworn Girdle, Bloodfire Talons, Bard’s Boots, Dark Silk Shirt, and Crystalheart Pulse Staff.

I hope this helps you out with whatever you’re wanting a pink outfit for, Navi! ❤
