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 (*).

81) Ancestral Ritualist

Ancestral Chieftain’s Armor with Polychromatic Visionwrap*, Ritual Leggings, Acolyte’s Shirt, and Staff of Fiery Fate
Although there are several red tunics that look rather nice with the Tauren Heritage armor, I chose this no-longer-available item because it is a recolor of the same style that Tauren Priests start out wearing. I couldn’t quite find a skirt that I liked with both this chestpiece and the rest of the Heritage of the Shu’halo pieces. These shorts, however, work perfectly!

Will I ever do more with any of these characters than enter the world and maybe manage to get through the 1-5 zone and out to their racial capital city? Realistically speaking, probably not. Nevertheless, the collector in me still wanted to have a complete set of Classic Classes.

Way back in 2011, Millya of Manalicious* was doing 5-minute sketch portraits (batch 1, batch 2) for her friends, and I requested a portrait of Kaelinda**, thinking that I might use it for digital coloring practice…

Eight and a half years later, I’ve finally gotten around to doing that.

* I miss Manalicious and still regret that I didn’t ever commission a watercolor portrait of one of my characters, even though I wouldn’t actually be going to BlizzCon…

** because I’d already gotten a Millya portrait of Kamalia, which has been my Gravatar ever since

On Tuesday night, I needed to put together an organic chemistry exam. I also really really wanted to play the finale of the War Campaign. So I did both, and didn’t get to bed until 2 am.

Before I talk about my thoughts on the War Campaign (such as they are), here are some before-and-after pictures of my Goblin and Worgen Mages to give those of you who are still trying to avoid spoilers some buffer space to click away.




When the first round of model updates came out with Warlords, I had to change the faces of my Gnome and Night Elf. Eventually I will take these gals to the Barbershop to look through all the updated faces. I’ll probably end up keeping the same face for the Goblin — though I liked the old version better. It’s more likely that I’ll change the face of the Worgen; I liked the extent of the white pattern on the muzzle better on the old model. I also liked the more subtle gray in the hairstyle of the old model better. *sigh* Now I understand the feelings of people who were disconnected from their characters by the previous model changes better (something that seemed, among the bloggers I read, to be most prevalent for Night Elves and Draenei).

So, about that conclusion of the War Campaign… (more…)

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 (*).

72) Skald of Skold-Ashil


Vestments of the Chosen Dead with Shoulderpads of Twisted Fate (N), Invoker’s Belt of Final Winter (N), Shuurt’s Precious, and Nurturing Touch + Heartbound Tome
A “skald” is a lore-keeper in Nordic cultures.
I’m not particularly fond of the set shoulders and belt for the Trial of Valor gear, so when I began collecting the Normal-mode Terrace of Endless Spring/Heart of Fear Mage-lookalike set, this combination suggested itself almost immediately.

71) Winds of Neverest

Snowblind Helm, Rime-Rift Shoulders (LFR), Mantid Vizier’s Robes (LFR), Warmongering Gladiator’s Cord of Victory, Felcast Gloves, Buccaneer’s Boots, Staff of the Hallowed
I love this little bell, a lookalike of a Warlords Priest Tier item, but it’s a bit difficult to work with because it’s not actually a full belt.
Between the names of the hat and shoulders and the overall chilly look of the silver and blue color scheme, Kaelinda felt like she needed to be in Frost spec while wearing this outfit.

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you.

— Burt Bacharach & Hal David, sung by The Carpenters

I was sitting in a long meeting earlier this afternoon and this wandered out of my pen and onto my notebook page. Apparently Kaelinda’s relationship with her Special Friend back in Silvermoon City is at the stage of mutual longing, yet mutual trepidation about actually expressing the feeling.

I doubt that I’m going to spend much time on Classic, but sure, why not reserve some characters?

I’m on Myzrael, by the way.

When Classic goes live — though probably not on the 27th — I will create a few more characters: Tauren Hunter Keturikka, Tauren Warrior Keijikka, and Dwarf Paladin Kyraleikka.

Will I ever play any of them significantly? Well, probably not…
