It’s a new year! Time for some new gear!

Crystal Knight

Brighthelm of Justice, Pauldrons of the Argent Sentinel, Breastplate of Avenging Flame (H), Legguards of the Emerald Brood (H), Flash Freeze Gauntlets (H), Tide-Stomper’s Greaves, Decalcified Elven Spear
Thinking about a wintery white and blue look, I started with the polearm. That suggested crystallinity, and this mixture of Paladin T5, T6, and T11 lookalike items followed from there.
I’m glad that belts can be hidden now, because the waistband of these pants is so pretty that it’s a shame to cover it up with an actual belt — especially the oversized belt style that is used by that particular set!

Warbreaker

Pauldrons of Ambition, Chestguard of Illumination, Royal Qiraji Belt, Starcaller’s Plated Legguards, Ooze-Ridden Gauntlets, Shattered Hand Sabatons, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet
It was about time that I made an kit for my Warrior that used her Arms Artifact weapon, Strom’kar, un-Transmogrified. With that sword’s history and reputation, it needed to use these shoulders, of course.

Ebon Pulverizer

Titan-Forged Plate Helm of Triumph, Doomplate Shoulderguards, Palewind Chestpiece, Belt of Unwanted Aid*, Firestorm Legplates, Eastwall Gauntlets, Boots of the Decimator, Aledar’s Battlestar
I started designing this kit to go with the polearm Black Ice, but I didn’t really feel like switching to Blood or Unholy spec, so I decided to find some 1H weapons to use with the armor that I’d assembled. On a whim, I looked at maces instead of swords or axes, and discovered that this mace, which looks absolutely enormous when wielded by Humans, looks rather more reasonably scaled for a Tauren.

Nighthawk

Shoulderpads of the Forgotten Gate (H), Darkmoon Vest, Pennyroyal Belt, Warpscale Leggings, Cindersilk Gloves (H), Phoenix-Down Treads (H), Black Ice
I wanted to make an outfit with this polearm. Once I’d chosen the Pennyroyal Belt because of its purple buckle medallion, these pants that brought in more of the teal were a great way to make this outfit more colorful and interesting than it would have been if I’d just made it all dark purple.

The White Stag II

Ghostwalker set with Moonrage Girdle and Ravenbear Disguise
The Ravenbear Disguise grants the white leaf shoulders coveted by every Druid since their first meeting with Morthis Whisperwing in Zangarmarsh.
Without the Ravenbear Disguise, this kit could also be used with the Ghostwalker shoulders and Crown of the Forest Lord.
The Moonrage Girdle fits so perfectly with this fur-trimmed white leather gear that it almost seems like it was made to go with it.

Fir-cone

Darkbrand Shoulders, Grizzly Jerkin, Toenail Belt, Breeches of Natural Aggression, Oilrag Handwraps* + Efrem’s Bracers, Boots of the Flowering Earth, Brutality Blade
This outfit, an “everyday” version of Kira’s previous holiday kit, would probably be better suited to a Druid — but with a Demon Hunter, the tattoos in dark green make a nice addition to the overall look.
Hmm… I’m planning to do the tattoos/warpaint in green for my Highmountain Tauren Druid; I might have to revisit this outfit concept with that character sometime in the future…

Claw Axe

Axeclaw set with Living Mountain Shoulderguards, Green Workman’s Shirt, and Eater of the Dead
A new outfit for Mini-Kam to start her off on her journey to 110 so that I can roll my Highmountain Tauren characters on her server.
Given the name of the armor set, I thought that some claw-axes would be fitting weapons.

Huntress of the Moon

Infernal Headcage, Champion’s Pauldrons, Icemail Jerkin, Sentry’s Sash, Silvermoon Leggings, Bonelink Gauntlets, Fleet Refugee’s Boots, Night Elven Bow
If there were a toy item similar to the Orb of the Sin’dorei that allowed anyone to look like a Night Elf, I’d use it with this outfit. Leyara’s Locket and Kalytha’s Haunted Locket won’t fit the bill, alas, because they give you the appearance of a specific Night Elf character, not that of a Night Elf wearing your own gear.

Imbued Silkweave

Imbued Silkweave Epaulets, Imbued Silkweave Robe, Windcrystal Cord, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess, Night Dreamer Slippers, Blade of Argus, Lantern of Hope
This chocolate brown with gold trim is my second-favorite color of this robe, after the minty green version dropped by Moroes in Return to Karazhan (which I haven’t acquired yet).

Scarlet Sunreaver Battlemage

Primal Combatant’s Amice Cord & Gloves of Prowess, Cindercloth Vest, Felheart Pants, Sorcerer Slippers, Scarlet Filigreed Doublet, Staff of the Forest Lord, Sunreaver Tabard
These Warlords PvP items coordinate exceptionally well with the Sunreaver tabard.
The dangly tassels on this belt use the same armor rigging as the bottom flap of a tabard, so they make it disappear.
For other cloth-wearing classes, the Phoenix Pants or the Crimson Silk Pantaloons + Saltarello Shoes would be good alternatives.

This series of posts began because I set myself a goal to document new Transmogrification outfits in a more timely fashion. As soon as I create a new outfit, I write it up in a draft post. As the weekend approaches, I start working on taking fashion screenshots, processing them, and updating “Things my [Class] Wears” posts. On Sunday — though not every Sunday — I publish the collection of my recent efforts. Then I begin the next “Sunday on the Promenade” draft post.

Occasionally, I have ideas for themed Transmogrification collections that take several months to completely assemble. Thus, some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of such a themed Transmogrification collection.

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.

Mostly tabard-themed kits in this installment. If you haven’t noticed already, I’m working (slowly, but not necessarily steadily) on a series of outfit collections featuring my favorite tabards.

~*~*~

Blazing Sunreaver Herald

Bloody Bandanna, Shoulderpads of Vehemence, Primalstorm Breastplate, Burning Blade Devotee’s Cinch, Ghostclaw Leggings, Razzeric’s Racing Grips, Murkblood Boots, Scarlet Filigreed Shirt, The Sunbreaker, Sunreaver Tabard
This sword requires Shattered Sun-Revered reputation not only to purchase but also to use for Transmogrification. Fortunately, clearing Heroic Magister’s Terrace isn’t nearly as difficult or time-consuming now as it was back in the day. If you don’t even want to do that, though, the sword “Alimony“, from a darkly comic pirate quest chain in Thousand Needles, is the same model without the red enamel on the blade.

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.

The Sun Reaver

Helm of the Crestfallen Challenger, Spaulders of Manifold Eyes (H), Bloodfist breastplate girdle & greaves, Legguards of Abandoned Fealty, Gauntlets of the Immovable, The Sun Eater, Sunreaver Tabard
Between the name, the styling, and the source (a drop from the Kael’thas lackey who is the end boss of the Mechanar), this sword was just begging to be used in a Sunreaver outfit. It’s too massive for a Rogue to double-wield, however (at least to me), so it fell to my Frost DK to make the kit.

Runic Plate

Runic Plate set with Girdle of Divine Blessing, Area 52 Engineering Gloves, Seethe, and Broken Promise
This just might be my favorite coloration of the Thorium Armor style. Perhaps that has something to do with its colors being very similar to those of Thunder Bluff heraldry?

The Four-Fold Way

Red Crane Mantle (LFR), Vest of the Dragon Slayer, Brown Belt of Humbling Gravity, Leggings of Loss, Smuggler’s Mitts, Moonstrider Boots, August Celestials Tabard
Although most Monks focus on achieving perfection in the philosophy and fighting style of just one of the August Celestials, all Monks respect and endeavor to follow the virtues embodied by each of Pandaria’s four deities.
I chose these boots because they have fun blue toes on races that wear shoes — so I used the the Orb of the Sin’dorei and the Orb of Deception to show them off.

The funny thing about Mogging is, once I get started on making new outfits for one or two characters, I start having ideas for other characters, and then before I know it, I’ve changed the outfits of several of my active alts.

Tracer




Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses, Spireflame Spaulders & Chestguard, Supple Waistguard (3-670), Ghostclaw Leggings, Gazlowe’s Gloves + Ghostwalker Bindings, Goat Hide Boots, Rustic Workman’s Shirt, Spellfire Longsword
I originally designed this attempt at a Tracer Transmogrification kit in honor of the official launch of Overwatch. The idea was primarily inspired by the slight stylistic similarity between the Spireflame chestpiece and Tracer’s jacket & chronomodulator device.
I decided that these brightly coloured pants were the best choice to mimic Tracer’s brightly coloured leggings, even though they’re the wrong bright colour. I thought the Goat Hide shoes were the best style match for Tracer’s sneakers, but they’re also the wrong colour. WTB this style of shoes in white, please!
I didn’t make the kit at the time partly because I couldn’t find a really good match for Tracer’s shades. It occurred to me, though, that the Bronze-Tinted Sunglasses would work quite nicely for that, so I needed to make the outfit before the 13th Anniversary event ended!

Stormwraith

Warmongering Gladiator’s Helm, Felstalking Shoulders, Spell Fencer’s Jacket, Belt of Hidden Keys, Warmongering Gladiator’s Leggings, Boneshredder Gloves, Illidari Boots
When I got this chestpiece, I knew right away that I wanted to use it with these pants. Adding the helm that goes with the pants to the ensemble meant using this Artifact tint.

Mojache Keeper

Indomitable Epaulets, Keeper’s Armor & Woolies, Eighty Silver Links/Supreme Sash, Wicked Leather Gauntlets/Keeper’s Gloves, Studded Green Anklewraps, Sturdy Yaungol Spear
The Camp Mojache Braves are wearing the leather Keeper’s set with the mail Ancient belt and gloves that are similar to the Ancient gloves in color and decorative pattern, though not in shape. I’ve attempted to replicate the effect with this warm grey-toned belt and gloves. They are also carrying 2H axes, which no leather-wearing class can wield. I like the look of this polearm as an alternate weapon, though.
For running around elsewhere in the world, where the Feralas inspiration will not be immediately obvious, the full Keeper’s set makes a nicer overall appearance.

Guiding Light

Battlegear of Guiding Light (N, lookalike) with Eye-Blinder Greatcloak, Sunsoul Scepter, and Aldori Legacy Defender
This was the one Warlords tier set I most wanted. I was so delighted when I got the first piece from a Follower mission!

Loreseeker

Princess Poobah’s Tiara, Mantle of the Desert Crusade, Jade Tiger Chestpiece, Abandoned Zandalari Bucklebreaker (LFR), Ango’rosh Legguards, Judicator’s Gauntlets, Sabatons of the Humble, Darkhide Blade, Bayeaux Shield, Lorewalkers Tabard
It was the most natural thing in the world for a member of the Explorer’s League to fall in with the Lorewalkers during her sojourn in Pandaria.

Thunder Bluff Honor Guard

Bark Covered Pauldrons, Plate of the Shaman King, Thorium Belt, Bloodforged Legplates, Spiritualist’s Gauntlets, Earthmender’s Plated Boots, Grinning Axe
This NPC outfit has a plate chest, leather shoulders belt and pants, and mail boots. Although I’ve previously constructed a replica of this outfit using the mixed armor types as an RP costume, I wanted to try my hand at making a Moggable version.

Great Tauren Hunter

Gryphon Mail Pauldrons, Chestguard of the Stormspire, Fel-Chain Cinch, Replica Beaststalker’s Pants, Ice Cream Mitts, Auchenai Boots, Bow of the Great Hunter
While I think this chestpiece looks cool, I’m not so fond of the rest of the set. Fortunately, there are enough mail items in enough shades of green that I could put together a nice outfit around it.

The Battle for Azeroth may be coming, but for now, we are still dealing with the Legion. I still have lots to do in the Broken Isles — and even more Transmogrification ideas. Hallow’s End is over, so everyone who got dressed up for the holiday needed to change their clothes. It had been long enough since I changed some of the others’ clothes that I was getting bored of what they’d been wearing. Once I’d changed everyone else, I did the last two or three just so they wouldn’t be left out.

Illidari Matron

Illidari Shoulders & Boots, Prospector’s Chestpiece, Waistclasp of Unethical Power (LFR), Gloomtalon’s Spare Kilt, Fuzzy Gloves + Flame Juggler’s Armbands, Blade of Savagery
Because of this sword, I wanted to do a “Shivarra Matron” outfit for my Demon Hunter. The NPC outfit is quite unique, however — only the sword and shoulders are available as drops for players, and the shoulders are plate — so my PC outfit is a series of approximations at best.
I’ve had this outfit planned for quite awhile, but I had to wait until she was level 110 to make it because of the belt.

Dalaran Watcher

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 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.

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.

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.

Ymirjar Battlelord

The Crusader’s Resolution, Raging Behemoth’s Shoulderplates (N), Carapace of Imbibed Flame (N), Verdigris Chain Belt, Legguards of Lost Hope (N), Taldaram’s Plated Fists (N), Blood-Soaked Saronite Stompers (N)
If Keija is going to be the Battlelord of the Valarjar, she might as well look the part (for a little while, at least).

Nifflevar Berserker

Brutish Shoulders, Barbaric Iron Breastplate, Earthswell Belt, Legplates of Dominion, Gauntlets of Enforcement, Loam-Stained Greaves, Nifflevar Bearded Axe, Lifeforce Hammer
This axe, a Northrend Vrykul Archaeology rare find, and this mace, which is crafted, have sufficiently similar styling that I’ve long thought that they ought to be used in a dual-wield kit together.

Justicar

Justicar Armor with Void-Warped Oshu’gun Mace, Aldori Legacy Defender, and Aldor Tabard
I finished the whole Draneor!Nagrand main storyline with Karaelia just so that I could have photo-ops with Yrel in the future.

Freezing Rain

Salt-Scorched Shoulderguard, Field Plate Armor, Replica Soulforge Belt, Legguards of the Emerald Brood (H), Flash Freeze Gauntlets (H), Life Force Chargers (H), Saber of the Ebon Blade
The Saber of the Ebon Blade is surprisingly bright and pretty, for a Death Knight weapon. The original appearance of the model was as the weapon wielded by Al’Akir in the Throne of Four Winds; it’s also used as the Sunsoul Sword that Paladins get from the Warlords Salvage Yard.

Storm Light

Warmongering Gladiator’s Ironskin Helm & Legguards, Poison Protocol Pauldrons (N), Spell Fencer’s Jacket, Brown Belt of Humbling Gravity, Frostwolf Mitts, Warmongering Gladiator’s Boots of Victory, Sonic Spear
I got this new chestpiece and thought it would look great with these white pants. It looks rather different on my Monk than it does on my Demon Hunter, who was the one who actually acquired it, though. If I tried the same combo of chestpiece, pants, and hat with my Demon Hunter, the rest of the items in the ensemble would probably end up being entirely different.

Dunestrider

Mask of the Unforgiven, Broodmother Armor, Eighty Silver Links, Warmongering Gladiator’s Leggings, Runic Leather Gauntlets, Marius’ Soles of Slaying, Cloak of the Shrouded Mists, Keen Marshfang Slicer
I’m not too fond of the pants that are in the set with this chestpiece — but these pants look great with it!

Guardian of Cenarius and G’Hanir

Cenarion Raiment with Belt of Cheapened Lives, Cloak of Enthralling Darkness, and Wildfury Greatstaff
The Cenarion belt has always seemed too bright, somehow. I like the overall effect better with this darker belt.

Finder of Unseen Paths

Gorrog’s Serene Gaze, Stormforged Shoulders, Trailseeker Vest & Greaves, Replica Beaststalker’s Belt & Pants, Talhide Lined-Gloves
I love the pretty gilded edging on this hood.
I wanted to use a long green cloak with this kit, but it clipped too badly with the quiver — as in, it almost completely covered it!

Runed Copper

Runed Copper set with Mantle of the Golden Forest and Engraved Boots
This is one of the first armor sets that a Blacksmith can learn to craft. It is mail, but the rest of the color schemes for this armor style are plate.

Last year at Hallow’s End, I went crazy making Horseman’s Helm kits for all of the plate-wearing characters in the Big Fourteen.

I love the Watcher’s Tunic for Hallow’s End, so this year, I’ve made Watcher’s Tunic kits for all of the cloth-wearing characters in the Big Fourteen.

Festival Corsair

First Mate Hat, Death Speaker Mantle*, Watcher’s Tunic, Clutch of Andros*, Nobleman’s Pantaloons, Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Buccaneer’s Boots, Orange Martial Shirt, Dying Light
Although I like how black sleeves look with the rest of the design of the tunic, black shirtsleeves underneath do obscure the lacy design of the sleeves of the tunic itself.
I’d been trying to decide between these boots and plain black shoes; when I remembered that I had this hat, then these boots were the obvious choice.

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.

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.

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.

Jolly Jade Giant

The Horseman’s Horrific Hood, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Dreadplate Shoulders, Jade-Skull Breastplate, Felforged Waistplate, Greaves of the Shatterer, Thatia’s Self-Correcting Gauntlets, Crafted Dreadful Gladiator’s Warboots of Cruelty, Shawl of the Old Maid
I thought I’d use the green tint of the Blades of the Fallen Prince for Kregga’s Horseman’s Helm kit this year, but it was not quite as bright a green as I had expected it to be. The greens of this particular armor set work rather well as a more saturated version of the green of the swords, though.

Evil Pumpkin King V

Hallowed Helm, Pauldrons of the Wardancer, Silithid Carapace Chestguard, Girdle of the Endless Pit, Greaves of the Shatterer, Ooze-Ridden Gauntlets, Boots of the Colossus, Blade of the Prime
I wished, a year or two ago, that the Hallowed Helm would be made Moggable. Now it is! Well, at least for the duration of the Hallow’s End holiday, which is quite enough.
These big orange Klaxxi swords just begged to be used in a DW Hallow’s End outfit. I tried the outfit first with the Horseman’s Helm, but it just didn’t click until I used the pumpkin helm instead.

Stormwind Costume

Imperial Plate set with Pauldrons of the Promise, Girdle of Uther, Jouster’s Gauntlets, Crazy Cenarion Cloak, Blade of the Silver Hand, and Maximillian’s Shield
Before Warlords, when the Stormwind Set was made available through the Dwarven Bunker Garrison building, the crafted Imperial Plate set was the favored way to imitate the look of the Stormwind Guards.
These shoulders were mail before patch 7.0. I wish that plate lookalikes had been added instead of converting the mail items to plate, because I would still like to be able to use the blue and black versions of this shoulder style for my mail-wearers.

Illidari Warp-Storm

Cursed Vision of Sargeras, Bladefang Spaulders, Shroud of Nature’s Harmony, Shifting Sash of Midnight, Cinderweb Leggings (N), Fuzzy Gloves + Bracers of Shattered Stalactites, Zierhut’s Lost Treads, Green Trophy Tabard of the Illidari, Warp-Storm Warblade
Certain Legion structures bear a remarkable resemblance to this Burning Crusade dungeon-drop weapon…

Between baby and school, I’ll probably going to continue have very little time for Azeroth at least until the end of this semester. It’s a situation of my own making, so I’m trying not to complain too much about it.. but I nonetheless feel like making a wistful lament. Though there’s often one or two evenings a week when I have too much work to do after baby goes to bed to feel like I can afford to log on, I’ve still usually been able to log on for fifteen to thirty minutes a day, which is enough time to turn over Champion missions with Kamalia and Kaelinda (yes, I know I could do this with the mobile app), do a few WQs with Kaelinda if Suramar or Kirin Tor Emissary is up, and do August Celestials rep with the Underpowered Death Knight. I’m managing to make progress, of a sort; between the 7.3 changes to Artifact Knowledge and prioritizing Artifact Power Champion missions, Kaelinda has reached Concordance on all three of her Artifact weapons, and Kamalia has reached Concordance on both Sharas’dal and the Fist of Ra-den. But when will I finish Suramar? Or go to the Broken Shore? Or go to Argus? I don’t know. I feel like getting to Argus is so far away that I’ve long since given up on trying to avoid spoilers about the storyline there.

Anyhow, here are some outfits I’ve made in the past few weeks. As you might guess, I’m working on making outfits in all the armor types to go with some of my favorite tabards — so you can expect to see most of these outfits show up again in themed collection posts somewhere down the line.

~*~*~

Child of Blood and Fire

Crown of Woe, Supple Shoulderguards & Waistguard (2-655), Primalstorm Breastplate, Illidari Leggings, Ironpelt Mitts & Boots
This Artifact tint is awarded for completing the level 103 stage of the Order Hall campaign.
For this outfit series, I had planned to use each blade color with the corresponding tattoo color. This magenta/purple-red is the red tattoo color that female Demon Hunters get. Unfortunately, it clashes somewhat with the scarlet/orange-red of the blades. The red tattoo color that male Demon Hunters get would be better for this outfit.

Dalaran Mage

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.

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…

Dusky Sunreaver Herald

Bonechewer Shoulderguards, Raging Spirit Harness, Murkblood Belt, Fel Leather Leggings, Blacksting Gloves, Goat Hide Boots, Wind-Reaver’s Dagger of Quick Strikes, Amber Slicer of Klaxxi’vess, Sunreaver Tabard
I’ve long thought that the Mantid-styled daggers from Pandaria would look great with the Sunreaver tabard. I didn’t get around to doing the Argent Tournament with my Rogue until just recently, though.

The Good Earth

Straw Hat, Reporter’s Shoulderguards, Shaladrassil Tunic, Belt of Cheapened Lives, Overgrowth Cutter Breeches, Gloves of the Afterlife, Boots of the Flowering Earth, Garden Pitchfork, Yellow Lumberjack Shirt, Tillers Tabard
This is at least the third “farmer” kit I’ve made for Kate, but I hadn’t made one that used the Tillers tabard yet.

Khan of Knowledge

Khan’s set with Battleforge Shoulderguards, Golden Saronite Dragon, Turpster’s Sonorous Shield, and Lorewalkers Tabard
I’d started building a rather different outfit to go with this tabard, but when I put on these shoulders, it suddenly seemed fitting to go for the full Khan’s set.

August Sentinel

Pauldrons of the Argent Sentinel, Light-Touched Breastplate, Jade Tiger Girdle, Legplates of the Bold, Faith Bearer’s Gauntlets, Nar’thalas Sabatons, Starshatter (LFR), August Celestials tabard
The Underpowered Death Knight had to be the model for a plate August Celestials kit because blue-and-white.
I picked these glowing white shoulders with the floating shards to echo the stars in the tabard design. When I got to choosing boots, I liked how the black of these boots contrasted with the white of the shoulders, and how both items are tied into the rest of the kit by their gold trim.

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 Apprentice

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?).

Emerald City

Watcher’s Cap, Blight-Lifter’s Mantle, Windroc Shroud, Mana-Cord of Deception (H), Exiled Dabbler’s Gloves, Boots of Duress, Cloak of the Makers, Khadgar’s Knapsack
I might not have ever used the green appearances of the Mage Artifact weapons if it hadn’t occurred to me that they’d go rather well with this outfit.
When I was leveling through the Jade Forest with my Human Mage, I wondered what the Oz backdrop was doing on the wall at Dreamer’s Pavilion. It occurs to me now that it is probably representing a painting of a journey to the Temple of the Jade Serpent.

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.

Serpent Strike

Bristlebark Pauldrons, Armor of the Fang, Headhunter’s Belt, Luminary Kilt, Toughened Leather Gloves, Supple Boots (3-670)
This Artifact tint is awarded for retrieving Light’s Heart.
This outfit would also be very nice for a Druid or a Monk.

Needs More Spikes

Helm of the Illidari Shatterer, Tundra Pauldrons, Tomb-Curse Chestplate, Frostwolf Stalwart Girdle, Crafted Malevolent Gladiator’s Plate Legguards, Gauntlets of the Bold, Blood-Soaked Saronite Stompers (N), Bulwark of Azzinoth
Because you can never have too many spikes if you’re a Warrior of the Horde.

This series of posts began because I set myself a goal to document new Transmogrification outfits in a more timely fashion. As soon as I create a new outfit, I write it up in a draft post. As the weekend approaches, I start working on taking fashion screenshots, processing them, and updating “Things my [Class] Wears” posts. On Sunday — though not every Sunday — I publish the collection of my recent efforts. Then I begin the next “Sunday on the Promenade” draft post.

Occasionally, I have ideas for themed Transmogrification collections that take several months to completely assemble. Thus, some of these outfits might get re-posted at a later date as part of such a themed Transmogrification collection.

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.
