Between being ill with an awful, lingering cough and some crunch time at school, I was doing a bare minimum of activities in WoW for a week or so and am only just getting back to Korthia. After a great deal of dithering about whether to continue with my earlier plan to do the Korthia Campaign with both Mages, so as to see both the “in Covenant” and “out of Covenant” dialog & quest text for the Covenant-story-advancing chapters, or to rerun the 9.0 Necrolords and Night Fae Campaigns with Kaelinda and only do Korthia with her, I finally decided to take Kaelyla to Korthia. She won’t do as much there as Kaelinda will do, though — just the Campaign chapters, Mog item dailies, and maybe, if I feel like it, the Anima token dailies.

Unleashed Time

Helm of Unleashed Energy, Eternal Traveler’s Spaulders, Bronze Wings of Awakening, Earthen Embrace, Eternal Traveler’s Gauntlets, Eternal Traveler’s Waistwrap, Ordon Legend-Keeper Legguards, Titan-Forged Sabatons of Triumph, Vagaries of Time (N), Timepiece of the Bronze Flight (N)
With the bronze wings, of course Kamalia had to use her favorite Bronze Dragonflight-themed weapons from Dragon Soul.

Fae Enigma


Crown of the Righteous, Faewoven Amice, Winterwoven Bulb, Enigma Robes, Cerulean Filigreed Doublet, Cord of Uncertain Devotion, Corpse-Stitcher’s Treads, Blue Diamond Witchwand + Winterborn Harp
Naturally, the insect-themed Ahn Qiraj robe needed to be used with the insect-themed Night Fae shoulders.

Sweet Brew




Garland of Grain/Brown Brewfest Hat/Weather-Beaten Fishing Hat, Imbued Silkweave Epaulets, Night Courtier’s Greatcloak, Gossamer Tunic, Belt of the Sage, Padre’s Trousers, Brewfest Slippers/Patroller’s Footwear, Sister Martha’s Soulstealer, Seer’s Fine Stein
I felt like to properly wear the Garland of Grain for Brewfest At The Ember Court, I needed to be wearing an outfit that I’d created myself.
It’s a bit past date for Brewfest, but on both of the weekends during Brewfest, I was ill and sleep was more important than staying up another hour or two to get this assembled and posted.

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.

I’m a bit surprised that this hasn’t already hit the front page of Blizzard Watch with a big splash — it’s something the community has been asking for for years. Update: ah, there it is!
The hotfix is already live:



And maybe Kaumaleia should go take Salandria out for Children’s Week this year, for old times’ sake

The Love is in the Air clothes are inherently silly; hence, the Mogs to be made with them are also silly.

Sleepover Sprite



Sprite Darter’s Mask & Flutterers, Blue Dinner Suit, Celestial Observer’s Astral Walkers, Aluneth (Hidden, 200 WQ tint)
The primary inspiration for this outfit was the idea of combining this chestpiece with these shoes. I hadn’t remembered how much the pantlegs shade darker toward the ground, so it doesn’t work quite as well as I’d imagined it would.
I tried the ensemble first with the Pink Party Hat, but it just didn’t gel.

Then I tried the Sprite Darter’s hat and was charmed by how much it looked like the hood of a set of playful pajamas for children in combination with the chestpiece.
The concept also works with the Lovely Blue Dress

— albeit in more of a grown-up masquerade ball sort of way.

Mugambala Mystique

Fen Spirit Headdress, Fen Spirit Mantle, Flowing Sapphiron Drape, Lovely Blue Dress/Windchanneller’s Tunic, Celestial Kilt, Celestial Observer’s Astral Walkers, Warmongering Combatant’s Energy Staff

Shadra Silk Headband, Shadra Silk Mantle, Butcher’s Wrap, Lovely Red Dress/Simple Blouse, Colorful Kilt, Infernoweave Boots, Wild Combatant’s Battle Staff

Cobra Priest’s Headdress, Sandspinner Mantle, Finely Woven Cloak, Lovely Black Dress/Lovely Purple Dress/Willow Vest, Elunarian Sarong, Kafa Silk Treads, Warmongering Combatant’s Battle Staff
A Lovely Green Dress would be totes hawt — but then, for just about every monochrome item in the wardrobe that is available in two or three or four colors, I wish that I could have it in All The Colours.

Portal Supervisor


Skein Woven Mantle, Wild Combatant’s Silk Robe, Breezebinder Handwraps, Quet’zal’s Crackling Cord (LFR), Slippers of Serenity, Portal Ripper’s Staff
When I can figure out what an NPC is wearing, sometimes I just wanna Mog it. I didn’t get the gloves and shoes quite right… but I like my choices better.

Order of Embers




Simple Glasses, Almost New Shoulderpads, Wild Combatant’s Silk Robe, Order of Embers Tabard, Blanched Ravenfeather Gloves, Willow Belt, Blightbitten Steps, Fighter Broadsword, Tome of the Dawn
Kinevra quested through Tiragarde Sound and Stormsong Valley, but it was Kaelyla who quested through Drustvar; she only got as far as the reorganization of the Order of Embers at Arom’s Stand. Hence the poor photoediting seam in the picture with Lucille Waycrest.

Yazma’s Replacement


Hallowed Pauldrons, Royal Apothecary Drape, Felfume Robes, Felcast Cord, Legacy of Arlokk
Yazma is actually wearing the Alliance versions of the Primal Combatant’s Amice of Prowess and the Primal Combatant’s Cord of Prowess.

A questline to make the Forever Lovely Rose Moggable year-round, like the Lunar Festival flower crowns. And yes, a questline please, not grind-a-bajillion-Lovely-Charms-to-buy-it-from-the-vendors. Maybe something like finding where Rhonin’s soul ended up in the Shadowlands so that he and Vereesa can have one last bittersweet meeting…?

Edit: Or Dezco and Leza and their baby! Dezco is already hanging around the outer circle of Oribos asking passersby to tell him if they see Leza in their journeys through the Shadowlands.

After spending so many years getting levels for the Underpowered Death Knight from the Tour The World holidays, I am utterly burned out on using them for leveling anyone else — not even my Highmountain Tauren Druid, Kasheena. It seems, however, that I still have ideas in me for Mogging with the holiday clothes. The idea for the teal suit came first, and then the ideas for the others just kept coming.

All Outfits Include: Duskhaven Boots, Crescent Wand, Kobold Candle. The wand represents Elune, of course, and the off-hand, the festival firecrackers. If you are wearing pants with dimensional pieces on the hips, the dimensional pieces will show up over the Festival chestpieces, so unless you like that look, you’ll want to Mog to a plainer pair of pants.

Fancy Festival Suits


Crown of Eternal Memorial, Exquisite Sunderseer Mantle, Ruby Drape of the Mysticant, Festival Suit

Crown of Eternal Memorial, Duskhallow Mantle, Brilliant Hexweave Cloak, Festive Black Pant Suit

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Azure Dusk Mantle, Flowing Sapphiron Drape, Festive Blue Pant Suit

Crown of Everlasting Fortune, Slaughterhouse Spaulders, Celestial Observer’s Starshroud, Festive Teal Pant Suit

Fancy Festival Dresses


Crown of Infinite Prosperity, Court Inquisitor’s Mantle, Phoenix-Wing Cloak, Festival Dress

Crown of Infinite Prosperity, Slime-Encrusted Pads, Shadebough Cloak, Festive Green Dress

Crown of Boundless Courage, Replica Magister’s Mantle, Lord’s Cape, Festive Purple Dress

Crown of Boundless Courage, Arcanist Mantle, Cloak of Cleansing Flame, Festive Pink Dress

Kaelinda and Kaelyla both reached Renown 80 last week.

I ran them both through setting their Renown to 40 with each of the other three Covenants using Broker Marks of Distinction. Much to my disappointment, I discovered that the Renown 40 Covenant titles require you to be currently a member of that Covenant to use them. I also sent Broker Marks of Distinction to Kalaneia and Kamalia. Kalaneia is thrilled to now be able to style herself Baroness Kalaneia; Kamalia prefers to remain Farseer Kamalia.

Everyone who is at least level 50 — I checked with my Paladin and Priest, who are level 50 but haven’t been to the Shadowlands yet — now has access to all armor-type-appropriate Venthyr and Night Fae cosmetics that I have collected thus far. To get the rest, Kaelinda (as Kateleina) will need to get to Renown 80 with the Necrolords, and Kaelyla (as Kaelyra) will need to get to Renown 80 with the Kyrian.

In the process of getting to Renown 80, Kaelyla completed the 9.0 Night Fae Campaign. Although there were a couple of times when I kept dying, I quite enjoyed it — it was nicely very different from the Venthyr Campaign, and I liked the visits back to Azeroth locations (the visits to the Maw, not so much!). Getting that goal completed left me feeling energized to jump into the remaining two 9.0 Covenant Campaigns. So with this week’s reset, before I did anything in the Shadowlands, I took Kaelinda and Kaelyla to the Hall of Curiosities in Oribos, and Kateleina

and Kaelyra

emerged to begin gathering Anima, Souls, and Renown for the Necrolords and the Kyrian, respectively. I intend to build up those Sanctums to level 3 Travel Network, level 2 Anima Conductor with treasure box and extra world quest reinforced, and the other features activated but left at level 1.

Meanwhile, WoW’s Anniversary is on. Kasheena is once again camping out in the Caverns of Time for easy XP from Historian Ju’pa’s daily trivia quiz; for the last couple of years, Kaelyla was her companion in that endeavor, but this year it is Kamalia.

In the past few weeks, I’ve really been pushing questing with my Warlock to get through Maldraxxus — Threads of Fate’d into the Necrolords — to Level 60 — formally inducted into the Necrolords — through Chapter 1 and past the Chapter 2 skip of the Necrolords Campaign, ready to begin Chapter 3. I finished that up on Monday — easy XP from Hallow’s End helped a lot!

On the one hand, I’m glad to have gotten the last of my original five Shadowlands Crew characters to level 60 at last. On the other hand, it feels kind of superfluous to have done so, with Patch 9.1.5 arriving tomorrow and my plan for doing everything from here on out with only Kaelinda and Kaelyla.

Getting Kaelinda and Kaelyla both to Renown 80 was the first thing I wrote on that list. However, Kaelinda, starting last week at Renown 73, and Kaelyla, starting last week at Renown 66, both only got 1 Renown from Replenish the Reservoir — although they did Return Lost Souls and a few Callings, they didn’t get any Renown from those activities. Thus, getting to Renown 80 will still be several weeks out unless I get them to Korthia sometime soon-ish. Furthermore, although I had been fine with still being ground-bound, lately I’ve been starting to really want Flying (oh yeah, and Riding in the Maw, too). That means doing at least the first three chapters of the 9.1 Campaign. So I guess my next push goal should be to get Kaelyla through the 9.0 Night Fae Campaign because of how the very first chapter of the 9.1 Campaign takes place in Ardenweald.

After Kaelinda and Kaelyla do the first three chapters of the 9.1 Campaign and get to Renown 80, then they’ll want to Covenant hop and do the 9.0 Necrolords and Kyrian Campaigns, respectively. Then, the next steps will end up being more nuanced than the Plan I laid out a week or so ago. I recall reading during the 9.1 PTR that there’s special stuff in the 9.1 Campaign chapters focused on the progression of each Covenant’s story for the members of that specific Covenant, so instead of doing the 9.1 Campaign as the same Covenant all the way through, I’ll be wanting to doing some Covenant swapping in the middle. Kaelinda will want do the “Army of Bone and Steel” chapter as a Necrolord — and then she’ll want to switch back to Venthyr for the “Unseen Guests” chapter. Kaelyla will want to be Night Fae for the “Power of the Night” chapter — and then she’ll want to be Kyrian for the “A New Path” chapter. Then they’ll want to be in their Home Covenants for pushing to Exalted with Death’s Advance. I will have plenty to do in the Shadowlands for plenty of time!

Thinking about how often I’ve used the flower crowns since they became Moggable year ’round, you know what would convince me to grind Love is in the Air tokens, instead of just doing the Sampler daily for the XP? Something that would make the Forever-Lovely Rose be Moggable year ’round. A questline would be better, though.

Ribbons of Fire





Circle of Flame, Mantle of Dissemination, Vermillion Robes of the Dominant, Wild Gladiator’s Gloves of Prowess + Hidden Bracers, Sin’dorei Slippers, Orange Mageweave Shirt, Spire of Scarlet Pain (N)
This is a robe & shoulders combo that’s been on my “to do” list for a long time.
I love how Incinerate looks like a sheet of fire rippling toward the enemy. Green fire wouldn’t have seemed quite right with this kit, though, so Kalaneia paid a visit to Jubeka in Outland to get her fire spells purged of fel… for the time being.

Grand Imperatrix


Crown of the Champion, Shadowcast Tunic, Gossamer Belt, Soothsayer’s Kilt, Eelskin Flippers (LFR), Staff of the Grand Imperator (H)
This tunic is fun because it looks like the top of the level 1 Blood Elf Mage robe. I’m quite sure that I saw this pairing of tunic and kilt on someone else at some time in the past. As I looked at other options, it was indeed quite the nicest combination.

Bouganvilla III



Crown of Boundless Courage, Savage Gladiator’s Mooncloth Mantle, Vital Robes, Silkwood Cord, Resplendent Sarong, Gloves of the Hypnotic Flame, Ruby Slippers, Pink Mageweave Shirt, Vengeance Staff
An update/palette inversion of one of the earliest outfits I made for my Warlock (#3).
Kul Tiras has such pretty flowering vines!

Love Is In The Air, and the flower crowns can now be Mogged year-round, so I just had to log on for just long enough to do this:

Thanks, Blizzard, for making my wish come true!
