I have not obtained a single Savage Blood so far this expansion. Why? Because I haven’t been able to figure out what I want to DO with it. There are so many items to craft and it’s so expensive to upgrade just one item just once that I’ve become paralyzed by indecision.

So help me out here, guys. Convince me that it’s worth my time and effort to start collecting Savage Blood by showing me what kinds of awesome Transmogrification kits can be made with Warlords crafted items. I know that rhuanious has made some sweet sets using each of the stages of the mail pants. I’d love to see what all of you other talented Moggers out there can do with Warlords crafted items.

This is not a contest, with prizes and such, just a challenge — a prompt — for a fashion show similar to These Boots were Made for Mogging.

If you’d like to play along, the guidelines are as follows:

* There must be at least one Warlords crafted item in your kit. It doesn’t have to be upgraded; the stage 1 items are perfectly acceptable.

* Because these are kits for Transmogrification, not for equipping, the three-item-equipped limit does not apply. To limit the expense of crafting and upgrading, however, there can be no more than five Warlords crafted items in your kit.

* If you want to include Warlords raid gear in your kit, LFR gear is preferred. I’m looking for inspiration for kits to wear myself, and I haven’t raided at any higher level than LFR since late Cataclysm.

* If you’ve already made a Transmogrification kit or kits using Warlords crafted items, feel free to send me the screenshots of your character wearing that kit! Already-made kits are exempt from the “LFR raid gear preferred” guideline.

* Ideas designed in MogIt (or similar programs) are both expected and welcome.

* Please include an item list with your image. In your item list, specify which upgrade stage/ilevel of the crafted item(s) you used.

* All armor types are allowed.

* Images should be .jpg or .png format.

* You can contribute as many ideas as you can imagine!

* Send your contributions to kamalia_et_alia@yahoo.com on or before May 31. I’ll post the fashion show in early June.

I thought about requiring each contribution to use a Warlords crafted weapon plus at least one other Warlords crafted item. Although I am really quite impressed by all of the stages of the Warlords crafted weapons, I decided that such a specification would be too restrictive. It would probably disqualify most already-designed kits, and I definitely want to see those! Do keep in mind, though, that your minimum one Warlords crafted item can be a weapon or a cloak!

I look forward to seeing what all of you can imagine!

Some recent and not-so-recent Transmogrification kits

Recently-mogged kits

Moonwillow Warden

Stormsteppe Pauldrons, Undying Chestguard, Wildwood Wrangler Belt, Shadow-Binder’s Kilt/Lightning-Infused Leggings, Rusted-Link Spiked Gauntlets, Brilliant Burnished Cloak/Purifier’s Silken Cape, Thunder Bluff Doublet, Icebound Frost-Singer Axe/Spell Axe of the Speaker, Frostwolf Spiritguard Shield
This Shadowmoon Valley Draenei shield design is so pretty that I collected all four colors of it. Although this particular color turned out to be the easiest to work with given Kam’s general preferred color scheme, I’d like to try to make kits to go with the other colors, too. The first version of this set is for Kam’s Elemental spec; the other is for her Resto spec. The shoulders and shield overlap between the two sets. That’s okay, though, because I hadn’t been able to decide which version of the Transmogrification kit I liked better!

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

Frostfire Wind Sculptor

Frostwolf Wind-Talker set with Dark Phantom Cape, Frostwolf Augury Staff and Black Swashbuckler’s Shirt
A “recipe set” obtained from early questing in Draenor, dressed up a bit with a shirt and this very nicely matching low-level cloak. I’d forgotten just how much of a cleavage shirt this particular style is, but it does mitigate at least some of the side/underboob exposure from the robe.

The next kit is not-so-recent, but it took awhile for me to figure out the best way to get my level 54 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!

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”.

These two kits are also not-so-recent, having been made before I took these characters to Draenor.

Crusade Champion

Thunderwood helm, chestpiece & boots, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Redemption shoulders & belt, Warbringer’s Legguards, Gloves of the Stela, Holy War Sword/Quel’Delar, Lens of the Mind, Highlord’s Favor, Argent Crusader’s Tabard
This is the set that Karaelia wore between the Jade Cricket kit and the Power of Pink kit. I recalled that when I’d created Karaelia’s original Crusader kit, I’d thought that sometime in the future I ought to make a set that mixed and matched the Thunderwood set and the Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Redemption set, so I used that idea when I set out to make a kit for her to wear while she was doing the Battered Hilt quest chain — and with Quel’Delar when she finished it.

Dire Knight

Acherus Knight’s hood shoulders gloves boots & cloak, Drakescale Breastplate, Bogslayer Belt, Direwing Legguards, Axe of Frozen Death
Here’s a black “Grim Reaper”-type outfit that could be used with the Greataxe of Stonard, if one so desired. I preferred this more menacing axe, though. This outfit didn’t last very long, however, before Kregga went off through the reddened Dark Portal to Draenor.

latecomer to the pink party

I’d recently made a new Transmogrification kit for my Paladin and hadn’t yet posted it, so I thought perhaps I’d pass on dressing her up for Love is in the Air this year. She kept poking me, however, that she hadn’t spent all that time in Hyjal Summit last year farming for the Blood-Stained Pauldrons to not wear them during Pink Season this year.

The Power of Pink


Blood-Stained Pauldrons, Bloodscale chestpiece belt & gloves, Imperial Plate Leggings, Chromatic Boots, Nethervoid Cloak, Skettis Curved Blade, Aegis of the Vindicator

My favorite part of “Love is in the Air” is that it gives me an excuse to wear some very silly outfits.

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry


Pauldrons of the Wardancer, Bloodscale chestpiece & belt, Brutish pants gloves & boots, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Ironhew Cloak, Hammer of Destiny
I intended to just re-create the brown-and-pink outfit that I forgot to make for my secondary Warrior during Love is in the Air last year — but then I remembered that I had these shoulders in the bank, and I could not resist the silliness of using them to resemble the crown of sepals at the top of a strawberry…

Heartburn

Runic Plate Shoulders, Boulderfist Armor, Bloodscale Belt & Gauntlets, Legguards of the Shattered Hand, Bloodforged Sabatons, War Paint Cloak, Hammer of Destiny
What is this thing called “love”? And why does it hurt so much?
Some kind person tossed a Lovely Rose at me as I was coming out of the Warpweaver‘s shop. It was the perfect finishing touch for the outfit!

Hunting for Love

Ornate Pauldrons, Workforce Chestguard, Myrmidon’s Girdle, Pounding Leggings, Scarlet Gauntlets*, Brigade Boots, Night Elven Bow
I’d already collected the green and blue versions of this set — one of the most handsome low-level mail kits — so I figured, why not pick up the red one, too?
Try the Brigade or Merciless Gloves in place of the Scarlet Gauntlets.

Blacklight Battleguard

Katoom’s Mask, Resplendent Epaulets, Vestments of the Shifting Sands, Black Belt of Knowledge, Coven Britches, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Junglestrider Sandals, Stylish Black Shirt, Swarming Sting-Staff
If I had been sensible, I would have farmed for the Staff of the Qiraji Prophets at the same time as I was farming for the robe. But I was not, and didn’t begin farming for the staff until after I obtained the robe. The Swarming-Sting Staff is a good stand-in until I get the Qiraji staff, though.

A couple of months ago, I was excited to learn that there would be a new vendor at the Darkmoon Faire selling RP-quality Gilnean garb. I, along with others, was disappointed to find out that purchasing the new clothing is gender-restricted — female characters can only buy the “Noblewoman’s” clothing, whereas male characters can only buy the “Nobleman’s” clothing.

When I saw the Transmorphic Tincture in the list of potions my Alchemist could learn from her Garrison Profession hut, I wondered if perhaps Chester could be fooled…

female-to-male Transmorphic Tincture

male-to-female Transmorphic Tincture

Yep, Chester can be fooled, alright.

I discovered, alas, that the coloration of the Nobleperson’s clothing is gender-specific.

Nobleman’s Coat & Pantaloons

Noblewoman’s Finery & Skirt

But what if that fancy black coat is what I want a female banker to be able to wear? Argh!

With the WoW’s Tenth Anniversary event about to expire, I finally got around to doing 40-player Molten Core LFR. I got lucky with a group that managed to get through with a minimum of hassle and annoyance.

Naturally, that firey new hat also meant I needed a firey new Transmogrification kit to go with it — my first proper mix-and-match kit of the new expansion.

Molten Destruction

Crown of Destruction, Erupting Volcanic Mantle & Handwraps, Sha’tari Deadeye Vest, Stormleather Sash, Molten Earth Kilt, War Mace of Unrequited Love, Streamtalker Shield
If Baron Geddon had been kind enough to drop the Earthfury Epaulets on my way in for my mog kit photoshoot with Ragnaros 1.0, I’d have swapped out the T12 shoulders for the T1s. Alas, he didn’t, and I doubt that I’ll bother to continue farming for them.

As we look forward to another year, here is one small and silly little thing that I wish would happen, one of these Patches, that would make me very very happy indeed:

I want more ringlets!

I love the ringlets of the Draenei “Jeweled Band” hairstyle.

I love the ringlets of the Goblin “Elegant” hairstyle.

I would love, love to see the Barbershop make these hairstyles available to more races.

Wouldn’t those long Dranei ringlets look just lovely on a Blood Elf, Human, or Night Elf?

And wouldn’t those fat Goblin curls look simply adorable on a Gnome, Dwarf, or Pandaren?

I’d love to see curly coat Tauren, too —

— but I realize that that’s far, far less likely to happen than getting ringlets for the more Human-like races.
