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.

My favorite part of “Love is in the Air” is that it gives me an excuse to wear some very silly outfits.
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…
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.
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.
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.
I’d decided that my Human Mage, Kinevra, was DONE. That she’d had her day, that I wasn’t going to take her to Draenor. So I didn’t do the pre-launch Blasted Lands questline with her.
Kinevra had, however, accumulated quite a few things that I dearly wished I had on my Blood Elf Mage instead — the Theramore Arcanist’s Hat from the pre-Mists Theramore scenario “event”, T13 robe & shoulders from playing with the OLRG, Burning Embers for the first step of the Tarecgosa quest chain — so I considered faction-transferring her over to be a Blood Elf. When I looked through her inventory, though, I found that she had some Alliance-specific items that I didn’t want to lose.
Then I thought about how my Blood Elf Mage has a serious case of faction envy and would Blink over to the Alliance just as fast as she could if High Elves ever became a playable race for the Alliance. Seeing the Alliance’s Mage Tower when I finally got to Ashran with my Draenei Mage last week, I knew that my Blood Elf Mage would want to have that structure, not the Horde’s Spirit Lodge, in her Garrison.
The character of Kinevra, the wide-eyed, freckle-faced teenager from Theramore with a hopeless crush on Anduin Wrynn, is DONE — but I decided that I’m not DONE with playing a Human Mage. With a change of name and face, my level 90 Human Mage is now Kaylynda, Kaelinda’s Alliance doppelganger/surrogate.
And she will be going to Draenor.
Lightning Infused Mantle, Robe of the Magi, Wizard’s Belt/High Councillor’s Sash, Cloudscorcher Handwraps, Cushy Cenarion Walkers/Slippers of Serenity, Staff of the Arcane Path/Staff of the Royal Wizard
The premise of Dragonray’s Draenor Dress-Up is pretty simple:
In honour of the upcoming Warlords of Draenor xpac and the changes we will be going through, I have decided it would be cool to do a comp based on only Burning Crusade gear. Heading back to Outland as we know it now before it (and our future) changes forever is a fair reason to remember all the lovely outfits we had for the very first expansion of this game!
Draenor Expedition Kit
Junior Technician 3rd Grade Goggles, Mantle of Magical Might, Goldweave Tunic, Archmage Belt & Pants, Soulcloth Gloves, Marshfang Boots, Tattered Cape of Antonidas, Staff of Twin Worlds, Lavender Mageweave Shirt
