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

51) Antique Glory

Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Cindercloth Vest, Galaxyfire Girdle, Night Dreamer Leggings, Gossamer Gloves + Illidari Bindings, Elegant Boots, Scarlet Filigreed Shirt, Lorewalkers Tabard, Rod of the Blazing Light
The bronze shades seemed like they’d be a good accessory for a Lorewalkers kit.

Late in 2010, when we were finishing up our first stay in Dalaran and anticipating the coming Cataclysm, I assembled “The Essential Dalaran Wardrobe”, a survey of the clothing worn by Dalaran-affiliated magic-users in and around Dalaran Crater and the satellite community of Ambermill, in Silverpine.

With Dalaran once again the hub city in Legion, I thought it appropriate to revisit the Dalarani and give their robes a proper Transmogrification treatment.

The Dalarani

Dalaran Wizard: Lesser Wizard’s Robe
These NPCs became Ambermill Witchaloks post-Cataclysm


Darkmist Wizard Hat, Elder Wizard’s Mantle, Lesser Wizard’s Robe, Serenity Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Mountainsage Sandals, Shadowvine Cloak of Infusion, Kirin Tor Tabard, Staff of Dominance
Other than the fancy staff, this is the basic wizard-on-the-street-corner look. The NPC shoulders are not available to players; the closest matches for players are the Elder Wizard’s Mantle I am wearing here or the Elder’s Mantle. Some of the NPCs are also wearing Heavy Linen Gloves.

Dalaran Mage: Darkmoon Robe
These NPCs became Ambermill Magisters post-Cataclysm


Researcher’s Mantle, Darkmoon Robe, Gossamer Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Elementalist Boots, Whelp Keeper’s Staff
Some very simple shoulders dress this outfit up just a little bit.

Dalaran Apprentice: Chromatic Robe/Manaweave Robe
These NPCs are absent post-Cataclysm


Manaweave Robe*/Chromatic Robe, Circle of Ossus, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Suspicious Slippers, Ley Staff*
This outfit is a bit of a cheat. The NPC outfit uses the leather Songbird Blouse with the skirt of the Chromatic Robe. The Chromatic Robe is common quality and thus non-Transmogrifiable. The nearest Transmogrifiable item is the Manaweave Robe — which was rewarded from a pre-Cataclysm Mage class quest chain and is no longer availabe (except perhaps for Blood Elves?).

Dalaran Watcher: Robes of Antiquity
These NPCs became Ambermill Watchers post-Cataclysm


Robes of Antiquity, High Councillor’s Sash, Zaetar’s Gloves, Replica Magister’s Boots, Helcular’s Other Rod, Kirin Tor Tabard
I tried some shoulders with this kit — I particularly liked the look of the Stiffened Corpse Shoulderpads — but in the end decided to leave them off.

Dalaran Summoner: Robe of the Magi
These NPCs are still present as Dalaran Summoners post-Cataclysm and can also be seen as a “Dalaran Citizen” in Legion Dalaran


Cyno’s Mantle of Sin, Robe of the Magi, Telubis’ Binding of Patience, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Slippers of Serenity, Ice Cream Churner, Kirin Tor Tabard
I don’t think the NPC outfit is particularly attractive, so I wanted to make a kit with this robe that I wouldn’t be embarrassed to be seen wearing.

Dalaran Theurgist: Black Mageweave Robe
These NPCs are absent from the Dalaran crater area post-Cataclysm, but can be seen as a “Dalaran Citizen” in Legion Dalaran


Hallowed Pauldrons, Black Mageweave Robe, Wizard’s Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Chelley’s Staff of Dark Mending
The NPC robe resembles the Necrology robe on the top and the Black Mageweave Robe on the bottom. Because the tabard covers much of the top of the robe, the Black Mageweave Robe is the best choice to endeavor to match these NPCs.
If I am remembering correctly, these NPCs not only carried a Priest-like staff, they also had Priest-like abilities.

Dalaran Spellscribe: Robe of the Moccasin
NPC image from Wowpedia; This NPC is absent post-Cataclysm


Magnificent Aeroglide Shoulderpads, Robe of the Moccasin, Nesingwary’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Warpstaff of Arcanum, Tabard of the Kirin Tor
This rare spawn NPC used to be the source of the Black Tabby pet. Now, that pet can only be found on the Black Market Auction House.
I thought about using these shoulders with the other black robe Kirin Tor outfits; they seemed the most appropriate for this one, though. The NPC belt isn’t available to players; Nesingwary’s Sash seemed to be the best replacement.

Dalaran Conjuror: Necrology Robes
These NPCs are absent post-Cataclysm


Amice of the Convoker, Necrology Robes, Wizard’s Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Battle Mage’s Baton, Kirin Tor Tabard
This outfit was one of my primary reasons for wanting the Necrology Robes.
For all that the portal to Dreadscar Rift is hidden away in the tunnels leading to the Underbelly, the wizards of Dalaran aren’t all as opposed to dark magics as they might outwardly claim. Prior to the Shattering, Dalaran Conjurors accompanied by voidwalkers could be found in the area near Ambermill and Dalaran Crater.

Dalaran Nurse

Replica Devout Mantle, Noble’s Robe, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Communal Stave
This robe, now a drop from the Stockades, was once a reward from a low-level Blood Elf Priest class quest. The “Dalaran Nurse’s Gown” sold by Angelique Butler looks like this robe, but it is not Transmogrifiable.

Other Kirin Tor Outfits
Although these kits don’t specifically attempt to mimic the look of any Dalaran-associated NPCs, they do make use of the Kirin Tor tabards.

Kirin Tor of Dalaran

Theramore Arcanist’s Hat*, Mantle of Nimble Thought, Buccaneer’s Vest, Oracle Belt of Timeless Mystery, Khadgar’s Kilt of Abjuration, Soulcloth Gloves, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots, Drape of the Lithe, Cold Convergence, Kirin Tor Offensive Tabard
The more exact match between Dalaran’s banners and the Kirin Tor Offensive tabard, and the idea of making a purple and white Kirin Tor outfit, was my primary motivation for doing Isle of Thunder with Kaylynda.
I borrowed the idea of wearing these crafted white and purple shoulders from the Kirin Tor Quartermaster in Wrath-Dalaran.
The tabard and the staff make this an Alliance-only kit.

Magistrix of the Kirin Tor

Arcanist Crown, Elder Wizard’s Mantle, Sketh’lon Survivor’s Tunic, Magister’s Belt, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Jumanza Grips, Marshfang Boots, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Ward of the Violet Citadel, Tabard of the Kirin Tor
It was hard to get a good clear shot of the off-hand because of how badly it clips into the skirt in the idle standing pose.

Kirin Tor Outfits for the Other Armor Types

Dalaran Courier

Headhunter’s shoulders & belt, Darkmoon Vest, Cinderweb Leggings (H), Expedition Gloves, Bonechewer Shredboots, Rich Purple Silk Shirt, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Rolfsen’s Ripper
Some messages should not be transmitted magically and must still be carried by hand from the sender to the recipient.

Kirin Tor Element-Bender

Glimmering Mail Pauldrons, Skettis chestpiece belt & leggings, Battlecaller Gauntlets, Sparkleshell Sabatons, Cloak of Seething Hatred, Kirin Tor Tabard, Cudgel of Furious Justice, Protective Barricade of the Light
When Kamalia answered Khadgar’s summons to attend him at Dalaran-above-Karazhan, she wished to express her previous affiliation with and allegiance to the Kirin Tor.

Guardian of the Violet Tower


Jade Tiger Shoulders/Burden of Mortality (H), Glowing Breastplate of Truth, Uktar’s Belt of Chiming Rings/Girdle of Truth, Eldritch Reinforced Legplates, Sunsoul Gauntlets, Treads of the Penitent Man (H), Drape of the Violet Tower, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Bloodmaw Magus-Blade, Protective Barricade of the Light
I like the way this belt interacts with the tabard; the Girdle of Truth looks nice if you’d rather see the whole tabard.
With Uktar’s Belt, the Heroic Burden of Mortality was a little too much for the overall ensemble. With the Girdle of Truth, however, it looks quite nice.
The Sunsoul Gauntlets are the only Paladin-specific item in this kit. The Shattered Hand Gauntlets are a decent alternative for other plate-wearing classes.

Charlotte’s Robes

I like the netted sleeves and the gradient stripes on the skirt of this robe. I’m not so fond of the giant spider. I’ve used the tunic version quite a lot for Hallow’s End outfits, though.

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

43) Serendipitous Seraph

Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Robes of the Guardian Saint, Astralaan Pants, Pyrotex Ignition Cloth + Cuffs of Unrelenting Anguish, Ringo’s Blizzard Boots
I’d made outfits for Kaelinda with the other three colors of this robe style, but I hadn’t used this color yet because I wanted to use The Stars’ Design, the Hidden appearance for Felo’melorn, with it. I’d been hoping that it would just drop for me in the course of ordinary Suramar zone and World questing, without having to “go back” to farm for it after I’d completed the zone storyline (including the 7.1 Insurrection story) — and lo and behold, it dropped.

42) Fire Witch

Jewel of the Firelord, Mantle of Closed Doors (N), Watcher’s Tunic, Braided Manastring Cinch, Vileweave Leggings, Black Mageweave Gloves + Elastic Wristguards, Saltarello Shoes, Amber Filigreed Doublet, Teebu’s Blazing Longsword, Igniter Rod
I kept the Flame Orbs of Felo’melorn toggled off for most of Legion — but for this outfit, they were just what was needed to amp it up to eleven.

41) Magistrix of the Kirin Tor II

Arcanist Crown, Elder Wizard’s Mantle, Sketh’lon Survivor’s Tunic, Magister’s Belt, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Jumanza Grips, Marshfang Boots, Lavender Mageweave Shirt, Ward of the Violet Citadel, Tabard of the Kirin Tor
An upgraded version of Kaelinda’s earlier Kirin Tor kit, worn while finishing the Legion Mage Order Hall Campaign.
It was hard to get a good clear shot of the off-hand because of how badly it clips into the skirt in the idle standing pose.

The Order of the Cloud Serpents have another of my favorite tabards from Pandaria. I love the soft, pastel colors.

Cloud Rider

Grievous Gladiator’s Ironskin Spaulders, Jinxed Hoodoo Skin, Pennyroyal Belt, Clefthoof Britches & Wanderboots, Grips of Slicing Electricity (LFR), Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Staff of Trembling Will
With a Monk, these PvP shoulders were the best choice for this kit. For the other leather-wearing classes, here is an alternate version of the outfit using the Belt of the Silent Path, which has very similar colors to the tabard, and the Mantle of Wicked Revenge.

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
These lovely pastel plate items were the first things I thought of when I started to think about making Cloud Serpent outfits.

Serpents in the Mists

Champion’s Pauldrons, Formidable Chestpiece, Belt of the Iron Prison (LFR), Tristam Legguards*, Skyhorn Gloves, Boots of Elemental Torment, Misthide Drape, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Wu-Lai, Bladed Fan of the Consorts (LFR), Flamecaller’s Shield
This cloud-like mixture of pale silvers, greys, and blues allows the brighter, yet still subtle, colors of the tabard, cloak, and shield to emerge like a cloud serpent from the mists.

Cloud Spinner

Arachnidian Robes, Belt of Arcane Storms (N), Replica Virtuous Gloves + Leywalker Bracers, Slippers of Serenity, Used Bar Rag, Order of the Cloud Serpent Tabard, Staff of Athen’a
I hadn’t made an outfit with this coloration of this robe style yet, and it occurred to me that it might have the right sort of colors to coordinate nicely wtih the Cloud Serpent tabard. Well, the aquas do, anyway. I’d forgotten how green the skirt is.

~*~*~

When I first started thinking about making this post, I went to look for the screenshots of the Order of the Cloud Serpents finale that I knew I’d taken when Kamalia did it — and I couldn’t find them! I looked and looked. Then I looked to see if any of my other characters who were Exalted with the Order of the Cloud Serpents had screenshots of the finale in their files, and couldn’t find anything there, either. I’d probably thought, oh, I don’t need to screencap this again because I already have screencaps from when Kamalia did it.

So I ran Kaylynda through the Order of the Cloud Serpent rep grind to get some new screenshots of that thrilling finale event. Between the Mists rep-doubling Commendations (which Kamalia got as soon as she could for all the alts to enjoy), being Human, the Darkmoon Carousel buff, and some good luck finding Onyx Eggs, it only took two days.

I loved the finale events for the Mists reputations. They made getting to Exalted a truly exciting occasion. At the same time, however, they made me feel rather bad about running off and never coming back to that faction again (except on occasion to take Mog screenshots) as soon as I got Exalted.

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

64) Dalaran Nurse

Replica Devout Mantle, Noble’s Robe, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Communal Stave
This robe, now a drop from the Stockades, was once a reward from a low-level Blood Elf Priest class quest. The “Dalaran Nurse’s Gown” sold by Angelique Butler looks like this robe, but it is not Transmogrifiable.

63) A Cleansing Fire

Mantle of the Cleansing Flame (N), Watcher’s Tunic, Sash of the Burning Heart, Embersilk Leggings, Black Mageweave Gloves + Supplicant’s Discarded Bracer, Sorcerer Slippers, Red Swashbuckler’s Shirt, Kyparitic Staff
Oh, hey, I found a use for these shoulders — the only piece from the Firelands Priest set that I actually like.

62) Heavenly & Venerable

Warmongering Gladiator’s Mantle of Cruelty, Anacondra’s Robe, Nethershard Girdle, Regal Gloves, Permafrost Cape, August Celestials Tabard, Clear Crystal Rod*
The Twilight Mantle is a perfect color match for this robe, but that style is uncomfortably large on Tauren. Besides, wings are so much more awesome.

61) Pandaren Homespun

Cyno’s Mantle of Sin, Cat Lover’s Vest, Belt of the Night Sky, Leggings of the Night Sky, Shadowmoon Grips, Footfalls of Memories, Epoch-Mender
These pants are similar to the Homespun Leggings, a quest reward from the Wandering Isle. These NPCs are wearing the robes from that outfit style, which I wish were obtainable in Transmogrification-friendly versions.

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

37) Golden Sunreaver Battlemage

Crown of Endless Knowledge, Shoulderpads of Knowledge’s Pursuit, Red Mageweave Vest, Voidweave Cilice, Leggings of Eternity, Primal Combatant’s Gloves of Prowess, Ritual Sandals, Golden Filigreed Doublet, Sun-Infused Focus Staff
This kit turned out darker than I’d expected — but I’m quite pleased with it all the same. I’m especially happy with the coordination between the Hyjal pants, the Sunwell shoulders, and the Warlords PvP gloves.

36) Maleficent

Fel-Infused Helm, Hatefury Mantle, Robes of Necrotic Whispers, Enumerated Handwraps, Saltarello Shoes, Iceward Cloak
It struck me that this helm looked rather like the headdress of the villain from the Classic Disney rendition of Sleeping Beauty.

35) Watcher of the Dark Coven

Shoulders of Mercy Killing (25H), Watcher’s Tunic, Ritual Belt, Plaguebringer’s Stained Pants (25H), Mir’s Enthralling Grasp, Saltarello Shoes
Kishalla makes another appearance to wield Ulthalesh for this spooky Hallow’s End outfit.

34) Ebon Sunreaver Battlemage

Cowl of the Grand Engineer, Mantle of the Elven Kings, Cindercloth Vest, Black Belt of Knowledge, Pantaloons of Growing Strife, Gloves of Tyri’s Power, Saltarello Shoes, Ebon Filigreed Doublet, Angerstaff, Sunreaver Tabard
As I was putting together this kit, I looked for pieces that were black and red and gold and went well with the tabard. When I went to take pictures of this outfit, I realized why this combination seemed so natural for a Sunreaver…

33) Dalaran Spellscribe

Magnificent Aeroglide Shoulderpads, Robe of the Moccasin, Nesingwary’s Sash, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Warpstaff of Arcanum, Tabard of the Kirin Tor
This rare spawn NPC used to be the source of the Black Tabby pet. Now, that pet can only be found on the Black Market Auction House.
I thought about using these shoulders with the other black robe Kirin Tor outfits; they seemed the most appropriate for this one, though. The NPC belt isn’t available to players; Nesingwary’s Sash seemed to be the best replacement.

32) Dalaran Theurgist

Hallowed Pauldrons, Black Mageweave Robe, Wizard’s Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Tabard of the Kirin Tor, Chelley’s Staff of Dark Mending
The NPC robe resembles the Necrology robe on the top and the Black Mageweave Robe on the bottom. Because the tabard covers much of the top of the robe, the Black Mageweave Robe is the best choice to endeavor to match these NPCs.
If I am remembering correctly, these NPCs not only carried a Priest-like staff, they also had Priest-like abilities.

31) Dalaran Conjuror

Amice of the Convoker, Necrology Robes, Wizard’s Belt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Hu’rala’s Slippers, Battle Mage’s Baton, Kirin Tor Tabard
This outfit was one of my primary reasons for wanting the Necrology Robes.
For all that the portal to Dreadscar Rift is hidden away in the tunnels leading to the Underbelly, the wizards of Dalaran aren’t all as opposed to dark magics as they might outwardly claim.
