After I posted new kits for (just about) everyone else, my high-level Druid declared that she didn’t want to wait until she reached level 100 for a new outfit. She’d been wearing the same one for over half a year, and it was getting tired and smelly. Plus, she’d had this outfit sitting in her bags ready-to-go for quite a few months.

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…

Bitter Blast

Over the past couple of days, I’ve updated a bunch of “Things my [Class] Wears” pages. I didn’t actually change all my characters’ outfits at once — I’ve been changing them one or two at a time over the past few months. I hadn’t taken screenshots of the new outfits right away, though, so they piled up until I looked at how many had changed and realized that I just needed to spend some time working on taking and processing screenshots and updating fashion pages.

Here’s a kit that doesn’t fit into any of the themed collections which I am currently assembling.


Frostforged Greathelm, Heaving Plates of Protection, Dojani Chestpiece & Handwraps, Bogslayer Belt, Honorary Combat Engineer’s Heavy Legplates, Treads of Savage Beatings, Shroud of the North Wind, Sonic Spear
The Crown of Eternal Winter is rather like a more elaborate version of the crown worn by the demon faces on these shoulders. If you don’t dislike its ghostly skull face overlay animation as much as I do, it’d be a great hat to use with this kit.

Raven’s Apprentice


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

You guys. I’ve wanted the Necrology Robes for my Warlock forever, but it’s so ridiculously hard to get that I’d considered it out of my reach — I just don’t have the patience for that kind of grind-farming.
But I was posting random junk from my Salvage Yard to the AH, and I checked the armor listings just to see if there was anything interesting up, and there it was. And, thanks to my Garrison income, I could even afford it.
As you can see, this is my Alliance main that found it, so my Warlock will have to wait until the account-wide Wardrobe in Legion to actually use it — but that’s okay, because I think I might want to use it with her Artifact weapon, anyway.

If we look like we’re one of them, they’ll let us get closer before they start trying to attack us, right?

To give credit where it’s due, Umlaut Paradots of Mog’s Addiction originally gave me the idea to make a collection of Burning Legion-themed kits, and a few of these kits are iterations of my first take on the concept.

Evil Sorceress

Mag’hari Ritualist’s Horns, Green Silken Shoulders, Beastwalker Robe, Ruthless Gladiator’s Cord of Accuracy, Black Mageweave Gloves, Boots of the Divine Light, Shard of Azzinoth, Book of Origination
My collection of Burning Legion-inspired outfits would not have been complete without a kit using this robe, with its black and green color scheme. Any boots that are an appropriate shade of black will do; these are just the ones that I happened to have on hand. Kaelinda has collected all the colors of this robe… I should start working on making kits to go with each of them.

Shadowfury

Shadowmoon Cowl, Hatefury Mantle, Frostweave Robe, Voodoo-Woven Belt, Wooly Goat Punchers, Boots of Duress, Shroud of the Highborne, Terokk’s Shadowstaff, Green Trophy Tabard of the Illidari
This outfit is adapted from ideas that I originally developed nearly four years ago for my “The Very Model of a Warlock, Dark and Terrible” post. I’ve got to keep playing my Warlock just so I can get around to actually creating in-game my favorite outfits from that collection.
The Shadowmoon Cowl is my favorite hood in the game. I’d love to see that model in brown and black for leather-wearers.

Black Arrow

Fel-Proof Goggles, Wayfaring Shoulderguards (1-640), Ebonhold Armor Gauntlets & Boots, Lifecycle Waistguard (N), Bloodmail Legguards*, Green Martial Shirt, Shroud of the Final Stand, Black Bow of the Betrayer
Although I’ve seen kits with these shoulders that went all-out green, I wanted to reflect the Burning Legion aesthetic of fel green as an accent color against black.
If you don’t have the Bloodmail Legguards, then you’ll probably want the Ebonhold pants, too.
Savage Blood required: 0

Fel Desecration

Pauldrons of Violent Eruption (LFR), Warrior’s Embrace, Refreshing Abalone Girdle (LFR), Direwing Legguards, Gauntlets of Steadfast Determination, Emerald Sabatons, Night Prowler’s Cloak, Lava Spine (N), Netherwing Protector’s Shield
Although this outfit uses most of the same peripheral pieces as my previous “Radiation Therapy” kit, changing the core of chestpiece & leggings and the weapons makes a big difference in the overall look!
This kit surprised me a bit by wanting the Xena Warrior Princess top — I’ve used the blue version of this chestpiece, but I didn’t think I would ever make a kit for which I would want the black version.
Any iteration of the Horseman’s Helm would be a fantastic finishing touch — but it’s my DK who has that, not my Paladin, and the account-wide Wardrobe isn’t quite here yet sigh

Sha Stalker

Cursed Vision of Sargeras, Supple Shoulderguards (1-640), Raiment of Silent Stars, Cord of Sha Savagery, Blazewing’s Furious Kilt, Gloves of the Blind Stalker, Fist of the Deity
The outward resemblance to a Demon Hunter may be a product of convergent evolution.

Recent posts by Cymre and Alt: about the upcoming Fashionista achievement series in Legion have prompted me to go through my inventory and see where I’m at and what I still need to collect to become Kamalia the Fabulous.

I’m going to assume that because the Wardrobe will be an account-wide feature, the achievement series will also be account-wide. Thus, if I can get to a total of 25 items in each item slot from any of the armor types, I’m good. I’m also assuming that recolors of the same model count as different appearances.

I counted my wardrobe by visiting the Warpweaver with each alt in turn and seeing how many items showed up as available for Transmogrification for each slot. I started with Kaylynda, then went over to my main server and worked my way down the list from Kamalia. When I’d found enough items for a given slot with one character, I didn’t look at that slot with further characters.

Kaelinda has 32 hats: DONE
Kaylynda has 38 shoulders: DONE
Kaylynda has 48 chestpieces: DONE
Kaylynda has 29 belts: DONE
Kamalia has 29 trousers: DONE
Ketura has 27 gloves: DONE
Ketura has 26 boots: DONE

Ketura has 28 ranged weapons: DONE

I’ve been collecting shirts for a long time and have over 50 unique shirts in my primary guild bank from tailoring and various vendors: DONE

Kamalia has the Tabard of the Achiever: DONE

I thought bracers would probably be the most difficult slot, because they’re usually covered by gloves and so I only keep them if they’re very pretty or if they’re tiny enough to not show under the shorter glove styles. Indeed, most of my characters have only a few pairs of bracers. Somewhat unsurprisingly (at least to me), my clothies had the most bracers. Kaelinda and Kaylynda had 14 pairs each. Kaohana had the most, with 23 items, so I dug up a couple more pairs from my mog vault guild bank: DONE

Most of my characters have between 10 and 20 cloaks. By the time I get all of my characters’ inventories imported into the Wardrobe, I’m sure I’ll have more than enough different cloak designs. If I do need to get to 25 different cloak designs with a single character, I have several cloaks stashed away in my mog vault guild bank.

So if my assumptions hold, then yeah, I’m pretty Fabulous already.

This is why I wanted — nay, needed — a level 100 Alliance Mage. I like the Horde Town Hall and Inn well enough, but for all the other structures, especially the Mage Tower, I like the Alliance architecture better.
