mogging along

Lately I’ve been working on a handful of sets of themed Transmogrification kits. Some of them are still no more than ideas in my brain, and all of them are at the mercy of Lady RNG in my weekly old raid farming for various items that I want to make them. In the meantime, here are some kits I’ve made that don’t fit into any of my current theme projects.

Serpent Trainer

Wildguard Helm, Jade Epaulets, Iceguard Breastplate & Leggings, Rainbow Girdle, Gauntlets of Purification, Boots of Avoidance, Slavemaster Axe, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard
I think this tabard is rather pretty, and I’d been wanting to make an outfit to go with it for some time. Somewhat surprisingly, it’s plate armor that has a couple of sets with just the right pastel colors.

Bronze Thunder

Doomed Crown of Lei Shen (LFR), Contender’s Revenant shoulders breastplate & leggings, Truesteel belt gloves & boots (1-640), Tidebreaker Trident
This hat is so ridculously silly that I can’t resist putting it atop any armor that is the right shade of bronze to match it.
I originally designed this kit with Gorehowl as the weapon, but after having spent months farming Karazhan for the dang thing, when it came time to actually make the kit, I decided that I liked the look of this trident better. I also decided that the overall effect looked better with one weapon instead of two, so Keija has switched to Arms for the time being.

Voodoo Incense

Nayeli Hood, Mantle of the Exorcist (LFR), Orunai Robe, Hexweave Belt (1-640), Blubber-Stained Grips, Sen’jin Doublet, Voodoo Hex-Staff
So I thought to myself, as long as I’m still on Draenor, I might as well go ahead and try to make kits for all three colors of this Draenor robe. I’m not all that fond of the style, so I’ll doubt that I’ll use it again once Warlords is over. As I was looking for items already in my inventory to wear with it, these similarly colored items appealed to me. Despite the overall appearance being an odd conglomeration of Pandaren and Troll influences, I rather like it. I’ll grant, though, that it does look a little less silly without the hat.


Yeah, yeah, I know that Shado-Pan hats are so last expansion. The fact remains, though, that “What My Characters are Wearing with their Shado-Pan Helmets” consistently continues to be one of my top hit-generating posts. I’ll keep getting Shado-Pan hats with my alts as they reach level 90, and each new character that gets a Shado-Pan hat will also get a unique outfit to wear with it.

Shado-Pan Archmage

Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Mantle of the Elven Kings, Red Mageweave Vest, Sash of the Burning Heart, Legs of Ringing Echoes, Gloves of Tirisfal, Saltarello Shoes, Cloak of Passion, Dark Silk Shirt, Archmage’s Staff*
This kit resulted from the notion of using these specific pants in a Shado-Pan helmet outfit. I chose this tunic because it makes the red band at the top of the pants looks like an extension of the tunic rather than part of the pants themselves.
This staff came from the limited-time pre-Mists-launch version of the Theramore’s Fall scenario. There are several other staves that would look good with this kit, though.

Shado-Pan Dark Disciple

Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Runic Plate Shoulders, Slavebreaker Chestguard, Thorium Belt, Hollowheart Legguards, Zaxxis Gloves, Bloodforged Sabatons, Cloak of the Dark Disciple, Rustic Workman’s Shirt, Rage Reaver
I could have just plopped the Shado-Pan Helmet atop the black-and-red “Blood Runes” outfit I’d previously made for the Underpowered Death Knight. It would have looked great, but I wanted to make a new outfit. As I looked through her available gear, I discovered that I really liked the way the browns of the quest reward items from the first part of the Tanaan Invasion questline looked with the dark brown wooden brim of the hat.

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.


Jade Epaulets, Wildguard Breastplate & Leggings, Ghost-Forged Belt, Gloves of the Overwhelming Swarm, Boots of Avoidance, Slavemaster Axe
So I was assembling this kit for my secondary Warrior, until it occurred to me how nice it would look with the Underpowered Death Knight’s green coloration… Then Hallow’s End began, and this goofy Mog idea sealed the deal.


Sparkleshell Mantle, Brackwater Vest Leggings & Boots, Unyielding Waistband & Fists, Poison-Tipped Bone Spear
There weren’t really any nice green guns or bows that Kawneiha could use at her current level (58, and I didn’t feel like pushing her through to 63 to use the Fel Iron Musket just for this kit). Looking forward to Survival being a melee spec in Legion, however, this polearm worked. At higher levels, the Ranseur of Hatred or Kaleiki’s Lost Training Staff would be good Mog choices for a polearm for this kit.

Forest Gypsy

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.


Greenweave Mantle Leggings Gloves & Cloak, Ivycloth Tunic, Willow Belt & Boots, Green Linen Bracers, Lesser Mystic Wand, Simple Branch
This off-hand is the same model as many low level wands, thus enabling a character to appear as if they are dual-wielding wands.

Umlaut Paradots recently mentioned that he’s working on a project to create fel-tinged/Demon Hunter-themed kits for each of the four armor classes. It didn’t take long for that idea to worm its way around inside my brain until I decided to try my hand at it, too.

For cloth, if you look like a Warlock, you’re pretty much good. This particular kit started with these shoulders, a recolor of the Warlock T6 shoulders which had that nifty Metamorphosis-precursor stretching demon wings animation. I owe the robe+belt combo to Dragonray, I believe — either one of the outfits that she made for MoMar’s ROYGBV compeition or something that someone submitted for her Mog the World competition.

Shadowmoon Cowl/Mag’hari Ritualist’s Horns (Horde only), Hatefury Mantle, Elder’s Robe, Cord of Cacophonous Cawing (LFR), Black Mageweave Leggings, Anger-Spark Gloves, Greenweave Sandals, Shard of Azzinoth, Sundial of Eternal Dusk

This leather kit is more or less just the pseudo-Demon Hunter kit I recently designed for my Monk.

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, Sandstalker Ankle Guards, Shard of Azzinoth x2

In mail, I immediately knew that I wanted the kit to use these shoulders. Elves can’t be Shamans, but races who can should use Maimgor’s Bite with this kit.

Helmet of the Inner Sanctum, Wayfaring Shoulderguards (1-640), Moonhee’s Mean Vest, Lifecycle Waistguard (N), Conduit-Breaker Chain Leggings (H), Fel Iron Chain Gloves, Frostlink Greaves, Black Bow of the Betrayer

The plate kit started with this sword. The helm makes it a little silly, perhaps, but I just couldn’t resist the coordination between that glowing green grin and the glowing green sword…

The Horseman’s Horrific Hood, Pauldrons of the Broken Blade (LFR), Ghoul Commander’s Cuirass (H), Veteran’s Scaled Belt, Articulated Legplates (LFR), Doomplate Gauntlets, Chrono Boots, Apolyon, the Soul Render

Not “Back to School” in theme — just in time of year.

Captain’s Ringmail

Captain’s Hat, Crusader’s Pauldrons, Felstalker Breastplate, Veteran’s Ringmail Girdle, Wasteland Ringmail Leggings, Talhide Lined-Gloves, Railwalker’s Ratcheted Boots, Steelforged Dagger (1-630), Sharptusk Shield
Alas, the most perfect shield to go with this hat is an Alliance-specific quest reward!
And while I am willing to do there-and-back-again faction-switching shenanigans with my other characters, I won’t do that with Kamalia. sigh…
I guess I’ll just have to make do with this Draenor shield, which looks vaguely nautical — kinda-sorta like a broken porthole cover.
Savage Blood required: 0


Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Funeral Pyre Vestment, Sash of Mortal Desire (10), Riding Gloves* + Glowing Magical Bracelets, Kurkenstoks, Funeral Pyre
I originally imagnined this kit as an RP outfit for my Tauren Priest. As it happened, however, I was able collect all the items with my Human Mage more quickly, thanks to a series of Alliance-side Firelands runs by the OLRG.

Somehow, I always seem to end up changing several characters’ Transmogrification kits at about the same time. The rest of the current batch of new kits are behind the cut — (more…)

Well, not everybody-everybody, but all my level 90+ characters who are currently on Draenor, at any rate. As I was going through my wardrobe pages the other day, it was clear that it had been far too long since I’d updated — several of the pages were still showing my end-of-Mists outfits, while the characters themselves were loafing around their Garrisons in sloppy, mismatched combinations of Frostfire Ridge quest reward gear and Tormented token gear that their followers had brought them. Even if nobody will see them in-game but me, it was high time for some new Transmogrification kits.

Scorched Earth

Pauldrons of the Deafening Gale, Warsong Wraps, Netherstrike Belt, Valorous Earthshatter Legguards (T7), Grips of Nature’s Wrath, Thunder Bluff Doublet, Gutgore Ripper, Viryx’s Indomitable Bulwark (H)
This High Arakkoa shield design is pretty cool, but I don’t know if I’ll keep it beyond the end of this expansion. So I figured I’d better make a kit with it for running around in Tanaan. The dagger was an obvious match, but Kamalia didn’t really have much else that was orange in her wardrobe. Poking around in MogIt, I found this combination of chestpiece and kilt, which is so nice that I feel like I’ve seen it somewhere else before… but where or when, I can’t recall. I had this kilt during Wrath, but I sold it at the end of the expansion to free up some bag space, so I had to re-collect it.

In order of seniority… (more…)

Hot and Cold

The first round of Patch 6.2 hotfixes went up before I even logged into the game yesterday, and after seeing that a quite a few of them involved crowd control — seriously, Blizzard, oughtn’t you to have learned by now that questgivers that bottleneck shiny new content require collision geometry and auto-dismounting auras? — I decided to wait a few days to let the initial rush die down a bit before doing the Shipyard/Tanaan Jungle entry questline.

Instead, I recruited a greasemonkey from my Inn (and got a lady Tauren on the first try!), then promptly tore the place down and spent the next three hours replacing it with a level 3 Trading Post to speed up my rep gains in Tanaan once I get there. While I waited for the peons to build and then upgrade my Trading Post, I did an Apexis daily, some Archaeology, and some treasure hunting. Between Shadowmoon Valley (which I cleared out a few days ago) and Frostfire Ridge (last night), I quite easily found enough treasures to reach 100. So now I just have to finish Securing Draenor and the Tanaan rep grinds to qualify for flying.

Meanwhile, it is Midsummer Fire Festival — time for the Underpowered Death Knight to don her platekini for her summer world tour.

It’s Summer and I Wanna be Hot Hawt Hot!

Jewel of the Firelord, Twilight-Heart Shoulderplates, Nether Protector’s Chest, Stalwart Girdle, Symbolic Legplates, Talonguard Gloves, Landfall Plate Boots, Amber Filigreed Shirt, Smoldering Gunship Strut
The turquoise accents on this shirt allow it to blend well with the blue of the chestpiece, and the gold filigree details against the orange background irresistibly remind me of the Midsummer Fire Festival banners.

Midsummer, with its clash of fire elementals and ice elementals, is also as good a time as any to show off this kit that I recently made for Kaelinda.

Ice Lance

Twilight Mantle, Grimfrost Arcanist Robe, Turquoise Sash*, Breezebinder Handwraps, Cushy Cenarion Walkers, Cloak of Cheerful Flowers, Formal White Shirt, Frostbitten Staff
Some of the Warlords robe styles have an odd issue where they show a band of boot color around the hem of the skirt. The boots that match this robe style are more like really tattered socks — they leave the toes cold and don’t cover much of the ankle — and they show as a band of skin color on the robe. That looks really strange, but fortunately it’s pretty easy to find some boots that coordinate with the main color of the robe. If you haven’t got these Outland quest reward boots, the Royal Boots also work well.

Silverblade, who just recently started Mog-blogging at World of MogCraft and has set out to make lore-appropriate kits for male characters of each race/class combination in the game, contributed four breathtaking kits, one for each armor type:

For years, my favorite shoulders to use with the Black Velvet Robe and its sleeveless counterpart, the Silver-Thread Robe, have been the Duskhallow Mantle. I think Silverblade has given me a new favorite combination! I often ignore bracers with tall gloves like these, but perhaps I should think about using them more often — in this kit, the bracers are a really nice touch to pick up the glowing color from the shoulders.

Hexweave Mantle Belt & Gloves (3-670), Silver-Thread Robe, Mindthrust Bracers, Ameth’Aran Sandals, Formidable Cape, Life-Staff of the Web Lair
Savage Blood required: 90

A sleek and dangerous-looking kit. Somehow, I am suddenly craving a 70% cacao chocolate bar…

Supple Shoulderguards & Waistguard (2-655), Grizzly Jerkin, Primal Combatant’s Legguards (Horde), Loramus’ Gloves, Ogre-Hunter Boots, Primal Combatant’s Quickblade (Horde)
Savage Blood required: 30

The little blue accents on the gloves, boots, and bow pull this kit together in a simply wonderful way!

Wayfaring Shoulderguards Belt & Gloves (3-670), Beast Lord Cuirass & Leggings, Atoll Treaders, Royal Cloak of the Sunstriders, Arathar, the Eye of Flame (H)
Savage Blood required: 90

A very regal plate kit. Of all the kits using these shoulders I’ve ever seen, I think this one is the most impressive — it’s making me contemplate actually farming these shoulders for myself!

Spaulders of Manifold Eyes (N), Truesteel Breastplate & Greaves (2-655), Elder Tortoiseshell Girdle Gauntlets & Sabatons, Crimson Silk Cloak, Cataclysmic Gladiator’s Greatsword
Savage Blood required: 30

PlaidElf, who writes about Plenty of Paladins (and Monks, and Hunters), contributed these two gorgeous blue and gold kits:

The deep colors and rich textures in this plate kit are simply stunning!

Templar Crown, Truesteel Pauldrons Waistguard & Boots (3-670), Nova Binder Breastplate, Time-Lost Greaves, Windblade Talons (N), Powerful Burnished Cloak (1-640), Steelforged Greataxe (3-660)/Steelforged Saber (3-660) + Barricade of Eternity
Savage Blood required: 120

Is it just me, or is this Monk totally channeling Nozdormu? /fan

Trickster’s Headdress, Supple Shoulderguards & Waistguard (3-670), Sentinel Breastplate, Leggings of the Sly, Gloves of the Golden Protector (N), Bonechewer Shredboots, Nimble Hexweave Cloak (2-655), Marrowstrike
Savage Blood required: 75

Navimie of The Daily Frostwolf contributed this awesome kit. I love the tunic & kilt combination! I’ve got one of these kilts stashed away in the bank, but I either hadn’t figured out or can’t remember what tunic I want to wear with it. Navimie has solved that little problem for me very neatly ;)

Helm of the Blind Seer (H), Passive Resistor Spaulders (H), Supple Vest & Waistguard (2-655), Primal Gladiator’s Gloves, Blazewing’s Furious Kilt
Savage Blood required: 30

Be sure to go take a look at this amazing array of Hunter kits using all the stages of the Wayfaring Leggings by rhuanious and this glowy green Hunter kit using the 1-640 Wayfaring Shoulderguards by Euphyley!

I came up with this idea of a Transmogrification challenge event based on Warlords crafted items as much to motivate myself to design some kits using those items as anything else. I challenged myself to make an outfit to go with each of the Warlords crafted weapons and to make outfits that use at least one item from each of the upgrade stages of the Warlords crafted armor.
