Because I tend to spend Sunday afternoon and evening doing Transmogrification photo shoots, picture processing, and posting to character outfit pages, I might as well make a general post the same day of any outfits that aren’t part of some themed Transmogrification collection that I’m working on.

Now that I’ve finished the leveling zones of the Broken Isles, I’ve collected all of the quest reward mail sets. I think the style is quite handsome, and I like how the four different colors coordinate well enough that replacing a piece from one zone with an upgrade from the next zone doesn’t make the overall effect look horrid. I’m still working on the dungeon set.

Runed Stonehide




The light brown Seaspray coloration of this set is obtained in Azsuna.
The dark brown Thornbrace coloration of this set is obtained in Val’sharah.
The light blue Whitewater coloration of this set is obtained in Highmountain.
The warm grey Stormborn coloration of this set is obtained in Stormheim.

Bonestorm

Heaving Plates of Protection, Iceguard Breastplate & Leggings, Greatbelt of Living Waters (LFR), Flash Freeze Gauntlets (N), Treads of Savage Beatings, Engineer’s Cloak*, Bryntroll, the Bone Arbiter
This is an idea that I toyed around with while I was making Kregga’s Bryntroll kit. The Underpowered Death Knight suggested that it would look even better on her.

Brackenskull

Bloody Visage of the Laughing Skull, Brackenshell Shoulderplates (N), K’Vlar Vest, Sha-Trapper Waistguard, Jeweled Legguards, Fireskin Gauntlets (N), Treads of the Past, Waraxe of the Horde Vanguard
Meanwhile, Kregga decided that because she’d done two kits — one as DW and the other as 2H — with the blue Laughing Skull hat, she ought to do a second kit with the red Laughing Skull hat — as DW because the first one had been as 2H.

If any of you, my dear readers, have kits that you’d like to share, I’d be happy to add you to the show! Just email me your picture(s), along with a list of the items in the outfit. I don’t regularly check my blog email, though, so if you’ve sent me an outfit, please make a comment on the most recent Sunday Mog Show post so that I know to check my blog email for your contribution.

Because I tend to spend Sunday afternoon and evening doing Transmogrification photo shoots, picture processing, and posting to character outfit pages, I might as well make a general post the same day of any outfits that aren’t part of some themed Transmogrification collection that I’m working on.

Not many new outfits at the moment. Too busy playing in the Broken Isles.

Cackling Bones

Frozen Visage of the Laughing Skull, Heaving Plates of Protection, Netherforce Chestplate, Acherus Knight’s Girdle,Cobalt Legguards, Flash Freeze Gauntlets, Treads of Savage Beatings, Bryntroll, the Bone Arbiter
It occurred to me that this hat and this axe ought to be used in a set together. If you’ve solved the mystery of Admiral Taylor’s Garrison, you know why this is an appropriate spot to take pictures of a kit using this weapon.
It is one of the curious and sad ironies of Legion that to wield the 2H weapon for this excellently Frosty kit, Kregga has to be in Blood spec.

Shado-Pan Blade-Dancer

Replica Shado-Pan Helmet, Mantle of Darkness, Primalstorm Breastplate, Blackwhelp Belt, Tough Mushanhide Leggings, T’wansi’s Handwraps, Prospector’s Boots, Cloak of the Untamed Predator, Shado-Pan Tabard, Misery’s End
Making a Shado-Pan kit that included both the hat and the tabard has been problematic for me because I couldn’t quite figure out how to manage the hue gradient between the bright, orangey, scarlet reds of the tabard and the deep maroon of the helmet scarf. The key to this kit, for me, was the pants; they brought in enough of the brighter red-orange hue to balance out the maroons from the other pieces I wanted to use.
I chose the chestpiece primarily to leave the arms bare with the tabard on and secondarily to look good with the tabard off.
For this outfit, I also used the Barbershop to change her blindfold to the simpler of the two red & gold Sin’dorei styles and to change the color of her tattoos from their usual dark green to black.

If any of you, my dear readers, have kits that you’d like to share, I’d be happy to add you to the show! Just email me your picture(s), along with a list of the items in the outfit. I don’t regularly check my blog email, though, so if you’ve sent me an outfit, please make a comment on the most recent Sunday Mog Show post so that I know to check my blog email for your contribution.

Die Laughing!

After making the effort — much of it in gold spent at the AH buying Medallions of the Legion — to get to Revered with the Laughing Skull, it was high time that Kregga make some kits using the cosmetic helms.

Most of the Laughing Skull NPCs don’t wear any type of shoulder armor, so I’ve used the Hidden shoulder option for these kits. There are lots of shoulder armor designs that I like, though, so I doubt that I’ll be hiding shoulders by default. More likely, I’ll use the hide shoulder option the same way I’ve been using the hide helm and hide cloak options all along — if there’s an item for that slot that I like and that works with the kit I’m designing, then I’ll use it. I’ll only hide the slot if I can’t find an item I like for it.

Ribcruncher

Bloody Visage of the Laughing Skull, Plate of the Shaman King, Ogre Beater’s Belt, Tarnished Fanatic’s pants gloves & boots, Hunter Blacktooth’s Ribcruncher
This outfit takes its cues from the clothing worn by Laughing Skull NPCs such as Kaz the Shrieker, Bony Xuk, and the Broken Horn Desecrators.
Broken Horn Village is a curious place. With an Inn and a collection of named elite NPCs — but not a flight point — it seems to me that it might have been intended to be a level 100 reputation quest hub early in the design process for Warlords, then gotten abandoned in favor of linking the faction to the Garrison Trading Post. I wonder if there’s a village full of Sha’tari Defense NPCs somewhere? Or is the corresponding Alliance/Draenei location the Shattrath Residential District?
To use a 2H weapon for this kit, Kregga has to be in Blood spec. I don’t indend to get the Artifact weapon for Blood, so if I want to make a 2H weapon Transmogrification kit for her during Legion, she’ll just be goofing around with a fully upgraded Fel Lord’s Warmace from the Demon Invasions equipped.

Frostcleaver

Frozen Visage of the Laughing Skull, Hydralick Armor, Acherus Knight’s Girdle, Cobalt Legguards, Bellipotent Gloves, Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes, Icebound Frost-Singer Axe
This outfit takes advantage of the conversion of certain low-level quest rewards that used to be mail into plate, the uniquely Death Knight invisibelt, and the return of the cosmetic invisiboots. I didn’t get Griftah’s Authentic Troll Shoes when they first appeared during the Battlefield:Barrens event during Mists, so I made sure to pick them up from Ravika when she reappeared during the Broken Shore event immediately prior to Legion!

Because I tend to spend Sunday afternoon and evening doing Transmogrification photo shoots, picture processing, and posting to character outfit pages, I might as well make a general post the same day of any outfits that aren’t part of some themed Transmogrification collection that I’m working on.

This edition of the Sunday Mog Show features the special Demon Invasions ensembles (which are really just an elegant recolor of the Warlords crafted gear).

Felshroud

Felshroud set with Nobleman’s Pantaloons, Demon Commander’s Drape, and Glaive of the Fallen
Naturally, my Demon Hunter needed to do something with the leather Demon Invasions set and the Demon Commander’s Drape. I fiddled around with some different ideas before eventually concluding that the set works best pretty much “as-is” — though I like these trousers a bit better than the set piece.
Is it just me, or would the Demon Commander’s Drape be easier to Mog with if it were darker colored — more greenish-brownish-black, like the Legion structures, instead of greenish-brownish-grey?

Apolyon’s Fury

Felforged set with Apolyon, the Soul-Render
This sword, claimed from Kil’jaeden at the Sunwell, somehow seemed the most appropriate weapon for my Fury Warrior to use with the plate Demon Invasions set.

Black Arrow II

Fel-Chain set with Fel-Proof Goggles, Veteran’s Ringmail Girdle, and Black Bow of the Betrayer
The mail Demon Invasions set, with a few pieces swapped out for items I like better.

Forbidden Knowledge

Shoulderpads of Twisted Fate (LFR), Fel-Infused Hauberk & Cinch, Wandering Healer’s Kilt, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Terokk’s Shadowstaff
I like the cloth Demon Invasions tunic and belt, but I needed some different shoulders — to my eye, the set shoulder model just doesn’t look good on Tauren. I’d been wanting to use these T14 Mage-lookalike shoulders in a kit for my Priest, and the colors are perfect! I also wanted a skirt instead of trousers, and of the options I had avaliable, this was what I liked best.

As I mentioned last time, my Blood Elf Mage and Rogue were due for new kits.

My Mage needed to be in Dalaran Purple before going to do the Dalaran-over-Karazhan quests. This is another outfit that will be in the initial updated “Essential Dalaran Wardrobe” post that I have planned.

Dalaran Wizard

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
Kaelinda has always considered herself to be loyal to the Kirin Tor; she had no part in the Sunreaver expedition to recover the Divine Bell.
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.

I had contemplated using this next idea for my Demon Hunter, but I think it works a little bit better for the Rogue.

Shadow Insurgent

Bloody Bandanna, Shadow Heart Spaulders (LFR), Nether Shadow Tunic, Shifting Sash of Midnight, Ceremonial Leather Loincloth, Fuzzy Gloves + Insidious Bands, Sandals of the Insurgent, Dagger of the Horde Vanguard, Quickblade of the Horde Vanguard
This kit owes a great deal to an outfit contributed by Zhau@Hellfire-EU to my “These Boots were Made for Mogging” event three years ago. Zhau’s idea was better than my own designs!

If I were to do something like this with the Demon Hunter, I’d change her blindfold to one of the fancy red-and-gold Sin’dorei-themed blindfolds instead of using the red bandanna headpiece.

If any of you, my dear readers, have kits that you’d like to share, I’d be happy to add you to the show! Just email me your picture(s), along with a list of the items in the outfit. I don’t regularly check my blog email, though, so if you’ve sent me an outfit, please make a comment on the most recent Sunday Mog Show post so that I know to check my blog email for your contribution.

A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, by George Seurat, 1884; image from Wikipedia

I’ve been well aware for the past few years that as I change what my characters are wearing, I tend to let taking pictures of their new outfits and posting them to my fashion pages pile up. In fact, I frequently find myself scrambling to take and post pictures of a kit because it’s been long enough since I made it that I’m ready to make a new one!

I think it’s time for that to change. Because I tend to spend Sunday afternoon and evening doing Transmogrification photo shoots, picture processing, and posting to character outfit pages, I might as well make a general post the same day of any outfits that aren’t part of some themed Transmogrification collection that I’m working on.

These Sunday Mog Show posts will likely be on alternate weeks, as BTH and I are fortunate to live close enough to our families that we generally go to a family dinner about every-other Sunday. I hope, though, that they’ll be more frequent than just once a month.

First up for this first edition of the Sunday Mog Show, some timely kits for current events:

Kirin Tor of Dalaran

Theramore Arcanist’s Hat*, Mantle of Nimble Thought, Buccaneer’s Vest, Replica Sorcerer’s Belt, Khadgar’s Kilt of Abjuration, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Footfalls of Memories, Kirin Tor Offensive Tabard, Staff of the Skymagi
Kaylynda needed to be appropriately dressed before she responded to King Varian’s call to arms for the assault on the Broken Shore — and with the meta-knowledge that events in Dalaran were to come (though I’d not spoilt myself on what those events would be), I decided to dress her in the kit that is the reason why I did Isle of Thunder with this character.
As I am too clumsy to solo Yogg-25 to get the token for the proper purple Conqueror’s Kirin Tor Shoulderpads, I borrowed the idea of wearing these crafted shoulders from the Kirin Tor Quartermaster in Wrath-Dalaran.
The tabard and the staff make this an Alliance-only kit.

With Dalaran becoming a hub city again in Legion, I’m planning to put together an updated version of my old “Essential Dalaran Wardrobe” post — this time with actual Transmogrification kits. I probably won’t try to do it all at once, though. Instead, I’ll start with a few outfits, including this one, and then add to the post as I create new kits using those purple robes — similar to what I’ve done with my Shado-Pan Helmet and Slinky Leia Robes posts.

Speaking of the Slinky Leia Robes…

Commander of Demons

Horns of the Left Hand Path, Vir’naal Spaulders, Robes of Insight, Zykes’ Belt, Bramble-Proof Leggings, Auchenai Keeper Gloves, Kurkenstoks, Demon Commander’s Drape, Drakebinder Greatstaff (LFR), Trapper’s Shirt*
As summoning demons and binding them to her will is part of a Warlock’s schtick, Kalaneia decided that she needed to buy the Demon Commander’s Drape from the Legion pre-launch events. Then, of course, she needed a new kit to go with it, and this was the robe that she wanted to wear. I did try making the outfit without shoulders, or a shirt, and with skimpy trousers in the Dressing Room… and I knew that I just wouldn’t feel comfortable running around like that. So I found some shoulders I liked and cued the colors for the shirt and pants off of the shoulders. As always with one of my kits using this style of robe, feel free to consider the shirt optional and use skimpier trousers if you wish.

Early in my WoW-playing career, I had an obsession with collecting as many of the level 1 starter clothes for RP-wear as I could. I made multiple level 1 alts just to send their clothes to my bank alt for my RP clothes collection. Although Cataclysm changed the level 1 starter tunic from a shirt to an actual chestpiece, I collected as many of the new styles as I could. Then Mists made the level 1 starter clothes be soulbound. I guarded my existing collection of non-soulbound pre-Cataclysm level 1 starter clothes carefully. My hoarding paid off in Patch 7.0 when all of those old, no-longer-obtainable shirts could still be added to the shirts tab in the new Appearances collection. This shirt was the original Tauren level 1 Hunter tunic.

The next outfit is one of the kits I designed for my “These Boots were Made for Mogging” event about three years ago. I was reminded that I hadn’t actually made it in-game yet when I recently used the same chestpiece & pants to make a new kit for my Dwarf Paladin.

Gold and Emeralds

Acid-Etched Pauldrons, Leonine Breastplate, Triad Girdle, Starcaller’s Plated Legguards, Gauntlets of Steadfast Determination, Boots of Avoidance, Blade of the Wretched, Fragment of Oshu’gun
I built this set more or less toes-to-head, starting by looking for pants that coordinated well with the boots. I’ve struggled with these pants because the green patches on the knees usually clash with the other colors I’m trying to use with the gold, so I was pleased with the two-toned green effect created by pairing these pants and these boots. That made me think of these two-toned green shoulders, where the dark side is more like the boots and the light side is more like the knee patches of the pants. After that, the mix of bright, lemon-lime greens already in the set seemed perfect for bringing in the gauntlets. The Belt of the Triad neatly matches the celadon green tones of the boots, and its gold blends perfectly with the chestpiece and pants.

This concept spun off from a kit I was working on for one of my current themed Transmogrification kit projects.

Bronze, Brass, and Steel

Blast-Proof Cowl, Ordon Legend-Keeper Spaulders, Bulging Chain Vest, Earthgrasp Girdle, Battle Scarred Leggings, Grips of Rekindling, Railwalker’s Ratcheted Boots, Bronze Blaster
This kit, with its grey metal tones and textures in the torso and brown leather tones and textures elsewhere, originated from wanting to use this bright shiny gold-leaf gilded helmet with this bright orange-yellow chestpiece that I thought might be part of the same set, but apparently isn’t. I hadn’t been paying close enough attention to the types of Mission chests they came out of — the hat is from the Highmaul/Blackrock Foundry Shaman tier-lookalike set, whereas the chestpiece is from the Hellfire Citadel LFR mail set. The belt, gloves, and boots, however, are from the same set as the hat.

Lastly, here are a couple of Sin’dorei-flavored outfits that, while not particularly creative, are certainly pretty. These kits are quite a bit older than the others in this post — I’m probably going to change what these characters are wearing very soon.

Teal Farstrider

Clefthoof Cover, Fizzy Spaulders, Rigid Tunic, Pilgrim’s Belt, Explorer’s Leggings, Clefthoof Gloves, Cenarion Expedition Boots, Dreadblade, Stung
The bottom half of this kit is a collection of Outland quest rewards; alas, the leather chestpiece and belt worn by the Farstrider NPCs are not available for players. The chestpiece and shoulders I’ve chosen have accent stripes that pick up on the blue-green color, and if the brown isn’t quite right to match the pants, at least they coordinate well with each other.

Sunfire

Sunwell Mage Regalia with Cloudscorcher Belt, Green Linen Shirt, and Golden Staff of the Sin’dorei
I didn’t LFR during Warlords — instead, I spend most of that expansion soloing legacy raids for Transmogrification shinies. I’d wanted this gorgeous kit for my Mage for, well, ever since Sunwell was new.
The belt that actually goes with the set blends into the robe, so I thought I’d spice it up a bit with this nicely coordinating Timeless Isle piece. I’ve included the shirt because to me, the skin windows in the robe just look silly.

I’ll mostly be posting my own Transmogrification kits, of course, but if any of you, my dear readers, have kits that you’d like to share, I’d be happy to add you to the show! Just email me your picture(s), along with a list of the items in the outfit. I don’t regularly check my blog email, though, so if you’ve sent me an outfit, please make a comment on the most recent Sunday Mog Show post so that I know to check my blog email for your contribution.

Eight years ago, the Summer Olympics were in Beijing, and Blizzard commemorated the event with the Competitor’s Tabard, an award for participating in any Battleground, win or lose. I got one for Kamalia, but not for any of my other characters who existed at that time (one year after I began playing).

Four years ago, the Summer Olympics were in London, and I created a set of Transmogrification kit ideas to go with the Competitor’s Tabard.

This year, the Summer Olympics are in Rio de Janeiro, and, thanks to the new Appearances system, I can have characters actually wearing Competitor’s Tabard outfits in-game!

Sleek Sprinter

Regal Armor, Serenity Belt, Shimmering Trousers, Riding Gloves* + Earthmender’s Bracer of Shattering, Sage’s Boots, Competitor’s Tabard, Helcular’s Other Rod or Torch of Austen + Tears of Heaven
I originally designed this outfit with the Swoop-Tail Shoulders and Sage’s Trousers. I was very well-pleased by how the green on top, red in the middle, blue on the bottom pattern of colors mimicked the pattern of the colors of the rings on the tabard. Now that we can hide shoulders, however, it seemed most appropriate to leave them off, so I shifted the green color to the trousers and the blue color to the shoes.
For the staff version, I chose a plain, straight staff to suggest a vaulting pole.
For the wand-and-off-hand version, of course she had to be running the Torch! I chose this flask off-hand to represent the water that would be carried by a distance/endurance runner.

On a whim, I decided to make the outfits for the other armor types with Alliance characters as well — meaning my low-level Dwarves. Thus, these outfits are rather different from the ideas I presented in my Competitor’s Tabard post four years ago.

Nimbletoes

Plainstalker Tunic*, Pilfered Kaldorei Belt, Bluegill Breeches*, Oilrag Handwraps*, Padded Running Shoes, Competitor’s Tabard, Bangalash’s Claw
Karolynne is level 22, so I didn’t have very many options for this leather kit. I started with the pale golden color of the pants (which I got from a Salvage Crate), then looked for other relatively light-colored brown items. It seemed appropriate to hide the shoulders for this outfit. Given their name, I couldn’t pass up this pair of boots!
How can this character be using so many items that are no longer available for this outfit? Thank the account-wide nature of the Appearances collection! I’m a bit sorry about that, as it will make the kit harder to replicate (especially for low-level characters). For high-level characters, I’d probably use the Marshseeker Gloves instead anyway.

Glittering Prize

Glimmering Mail Pauldrons & Girdle, Lambent Scale Breastplate & Legguards, Mail Combat Gauntlets & Boots, Competitor’s Tabard, Thun’grim’s Mace*, Glyphed Buckler
At level 30, Kjerstin was able to use the chestpiece & leggings from my original Competitor’s Tabard mail designs, but she had to choose different gloves & boots. Although the cloth and leather kits looked complete without shoulders, I felt like the heavier appearance of the mail items was more balanced with shoulders included.
This mace was one of the possible rewards from a pre-Cataclysm low-level Horde Warrior questchain.

Royal Champion

Princess Poobah’s Tiara, Mantle of the Horusath, Leonine Breastplate, Replica Belt of Valor, Starcaller’s Plated Legguards, Judicator’s Gauntlets, Slime Kickers, Competitor’s Tabard, Royal Mallet
Maybe it was her hairstyle that made me feel like Kyraleia (level 63) needed a headband with her Competitor’s Tabard kit when none of the other kits did. Again, I felt like the heavy plate items didn’t look quite right without shoulders.
Without the tabard, I’ve had this sort of kit for a Paladin in the back of my mind for quite a long time.

That Hexweave Belt

Here are some kits that I edited out of the Savage Blood Fashion Parade, Revisited: Cloth post because the only Warlords crafted item they use is one version or another of the Hexweave Belt.

Void-touched

Shadowmoon Shoulderguards, Fur Covered Robe, Hexweave Belt (2-655), Grips of the Void + Crystalweave Bracers, Waterfall Drape, Squire’s Shirt, Staff of the Redeemer
This kit came about because I wanted to use the stage 2 version of the Hexweave Belt — but not with its own robe — and thought it might be a good alternate belt for the Shadowmoon set. It is, but I’m not really all that fond of the Shadowmoon robe, so I looked for other robes I already owned that looked good with the combination of the Hexweave belt and Shadowmoon shoulders. It seemed appropriate that this classically Draenei-styled robe from Azuremyst Isle questing looked the nicest overall! After I’d decided to use this robe, it only seemed right to make the outfit with my Draenei Mage (who was badly in need of a new outfit anyway) rather than with any of my other characters.
Poor Kaprikka, after pushing her hard to get to 90 and having her be my second character to go to Draenor, I soon abandoned her to play Kaylynda as my Alliance main instead.
Savage Blood required: 15

Gorian Mysteries

Shadowmoon Shoulderguards, Robes of the Arcane Ultimatum, Hexweave Belt (2-655), Mountainsage Handwraps + Dryad’s Wrist Bindings, Cavedweller’s Climbers, Staff of Infinite Mysteries
Kaylynda got this robe from a Highmaul follower mission, and I remembered that I had thought, upon first seeing the previews for the Highmaul Mage set, that the Shadowmoon shoulders might be good alternates. This also seemed like a good use for the stage 2 Hexweave belt.
Savage Blood required: 15

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.

Witch Queen of Angmar or Warlock-Wannabe

Vilebreath Mask, Illidari Shoulderpads, Robes of the Umbral Brute, Hexweave Belt (1-640), Amaranthine Handwraps, Shattrath Jumpers, Malroc’s Staff of Command
For some reason, the coloration combined with the design of this robe always reminds me of the scene in Lord of the Rings: Return of the King where Frodo, Sam, and Gollum are on the concealed mountain stairway overlooking the gates of Angmar when the Witch King goes out to hunt.
The shoulders are a recolor of Warlock T5, and the robe is a recolor of Warlock T8, and the hat, though actually a Warlords Priest tier-lookalike item, recalls the Warlock T4 helm — thus, this is a kit for all those Mages and Shadow Priests who just wish they were as awesome as Warlocks.
To be quite honest, one of my reasons for making a separate post out of this group of kits in which the only Warlords crafted item is the Hexweave Belt was that I hadn’t gotten the shoulders for this outfit to drop for my Warlock by the time I wanted to start posting the Savage Blood Fashion Parade, Revisited series.

~*~*~

And while we’re on the subject of more kits using Warlords crafted items, here are some iterations on the plate designs that I just thought of.

Everbright Truesteel I

Everbright shoulders belt gloves & boots, Truesteel Breastplate & Greaves (3-670), Admiral Taylor’s Greatsword
So I thought to myself, if I liked the combination of the maroon Elder Tortoiseshell and stage 2 Truesteel items so much, the combination of the periwinkle blue Everbright and stage 3 Truesteel items ought to be equally attractive.
While creating this outfit, I also discovered that with the new Appearances feature, Horde characters can now use the appearance of Admiral Taylor’s Greatsword for Transmogrification. Hurrah!

Everbright Truesteel II

Truesteel shoulders belt gloves & boots (3-670), Everbright Breastplate & Legplates, Azuresong Mageblade, King’s Bulwark
It was rather tempting to just use the Steelforged Saber and Steelforged Aegis with this kit, as they were designed to go with the Truesteel items and do look fabulous with them — but that didn’t feel sufficiently creative and also distracted from the armor itself. If Karaelia were an Alliance Paladin, though, I might have used the Lion’s Fang and Lion’s Heart instead of these plainer items.
